Just watching it again though. God, can you imagine in a few years UNcharted, AC, Tomb Raider in VR? Doing the Eagle dives from AC would make your heart jump up into your throat, lol.

You seem to be willfully forgetting that the raison d'etre of Tomb Raider is 3rd person.

Wow. Beatnik

Looks like Uncharted in VR.

I agree with the MindStalker, though. If you've never climbed, using just your hands may seem plausible. Unlike Uncharted (even though I love it) you will need to rest your weight on your feet as well or your arms will give out in short order. And ropes, harness, chalk, belay, carabiners, crams...yeah, you kinda need that stuff to do it safely.

I guess that's Climb 6?

Am I the only one/1 who didn't like BF2142? I always liked BF's 1942, 2, V, etc.

No, I also did not like it.
But I'm a weirdo who thinks Vietnam was the best one.
Then 1942, and then BF2.

2142 was OK, but not my favorite by far. Vietnam was great until they "fixed it" one day and killed the game.

Considering I have paid for cable one time in my life to watch Farscape, I would say it's not faster than I think. (One season of Farscape to try to keep it on the air cost me more than the bluray set of the whole show.)

Battlefield 3 and 4 were fantastic. If this lives up to them, even if it's pretty much the same, I'll buy it. If it's like Hardline, forget it. If it's like Star Wars Battlefront, I'll buy it so that I can set it on fire and upload a video of me setting it on fire on to YouTube.

Agreed. I would love if they could just import ALL of the current maps and give us a few new ones, though. Maybe some bad company 2 maps as well.

I keep meaning to play more of this now that it is free of monthly subs, but man, SO MANY GAMES. I haven't even really done much with the new GW2 expansion. I finished the new TR and then Beyond Two SOuls gets a HD release and JC3 comes out (which I held off on but Bats keeps posting pics of that make me yearn to play it) and still working on Fallout 4 and Starcraft and....AGH!~

The government isn't profiting off of immunizations, so how could that possibly be their motivation?

That's actually the reason the government handles it. There's so little profit in vaccines that no private company would make them if the government didn't. But they serve such a vital function. I can't believe people argue against the technology that eradicated small pox, a disease estimated to have killed 500 million people last century, and hundreds of millions more in the centuries before that.

If you are talking about the US, you are misinformed. The government does not make them, and they generate billions of dollars in income every year for big-pharma companies.

it's also weird how consistently the leaders pick better than everyone else. i would think beyond a certain point (that a lot of us football fans are past) that it's all just statistical noise, but the names on the espn leaderboard are almost always the same dudes all season long.

I think there's some level of skill to it, paying attention to injuries knowing who plays well against what team, but I think its mostly luck. Get 2 or 3 good weeks, and then do average or just above average and you'll stay ahead of everyone else.

I can't stand it when people "fall in love" with actors. YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED THIS PERSON IN REALITY. Actor. Acting. Seek mental help.

Remember when WoW took off and then everyone and their brother wanted to make an MMO game and pretty soon the market was so flooded that they could barely make a profit?

I predict the same market saturation here.

We can already see it first hand. League of Lesbians has all the players. Even its closest competitor Dota 2 has a tiny fraction of the player base.

The problem with making a MOBA, or an MMO, is people only want to play the game that everyone else is already playing.

Do you have numbers to back that up? DOTA 2 seems pretty popular, as does HotS.

Except that one time they took blood and I went blind for 5-10 minutes, that was freaky as hell...
What the hell? Did you get an explanation?

This was explained in the link I found when I was trying to figure out how much those blood vials hold. It's called a vasovagal response, and it's the most common form of fainting. Having one suggests you are prone to them, so it should be kept in mind, though they are more common in younger people, so you may grow out of them too.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasovagal_response

I have them all the time. Every time I switch doctors, I tell them and they ignore me. I once pitched forward out of a chair and my 100lb nurse tried to catch me and wound up with a sprained wrist and a nasty bump on her head. (6'3", 225) Now it's on my chart to have me lay down and be strapped in before they take blood.

I have whited out a couple of times. I can hear and talk back, but my ears feel like they are stuffed with cotton and I cannot see anything except white.

I can prevent them by eating and having something sugary before hand. The only times it happens, though, is getting a tattoo or a shot/taking blood. Tattoo and shot I am covered for. I load up on sugar and breeze through. (Well, Tattoos, anyway, shots still make me a little woozy) Blood for test though? They always want you to fast for 12 hours before hand, so I am always screwed.

The stupid part is, I have been stabbed, operated on while conscious and watching, you name it and it doesn't bother me. I broke my thumb and drove myself to the ER. One oz of blood gets drawn with a needle though and I pass out.

Not much hope for the XBone anyway. Just finished Tomb Raider on my Bone and sold it. TR cut scenes were so choppy it was ridiculous, and in certain areas the frame-rate dipped noticeably. I kept my CE stuff, but the game and box are gone. I'll 100% it on PS4, thanks. (Also, a bug prevented a lot of players form completing side missions past a certain point. That was fun.)

JC3 is definite PC purchase for me.

Awesome thanks Agent, I will check all of that out. I was hoping to snag some gear on Black Friday, but nothing really of note anywhere.

Yeah, not really in the market right now, but I checked out all the Newegg and Amazon specials just to see. Some storage had decent pricing, but not really any good deals on the big stuff.

It's not a huge thing here in Charlotte. Or, if it is, the crazy people get up at 3AM to hit all the stores and are done by the time I leave the house at noon.

Stopped by HHGREGG to pick up an awesome theater recliner for about 1/3 off the normal price. Almost nobody there, traffic was lighter than a normal Friday down here.

Stopped by the range to pick up my new rifle. Pro-shop was dead, but there was a wait for the range soon after I got in.

Stopped by Kohls to get shirts for work. (50-75% off) Less people than a normal Friday.

Went to Zaxby's for late lunch. NOBODY there. Drove home on 77 S with traffic as light as it usually is at midnight.

By comparison, Black Friday where I am from in upstate NY was a warzone.

I'll tell you what I have and see if it helps.

Case - Corsair Air 540 http://tinyurl.com/pu7zqah - Super quiet, big ass fans. PSU is in a separate compartment, wiring is easy through the grommets provided. Easily attach a Corsair liquid cooler to the top for your CPU. (Using an H110i GT http://tinyurl.com/nwab8po ) Case is very quiet, especially with the liquid cooling.

I have 2 Asus Strix 970 cards. They help with the noise as the fans don't even turn on ant low temps, and they are super quiet even at full speed. (Seriously, my one older HDD is the noisiest thing in this PC right now.) http://tinyurl.com/p6h9dgf

My CPU is an I7 4930K, but only because I already had it from an Alienware desktop. I chose to stick with that and get an LG2011 Asus motherboard to fit it. (Basically one of the last 2011 motherboards still being made.) Great board (Rampage IV). I mixed the cheap-ass ALienware OEM RAM with 2 stick of Klevv RAM and it works great. Board is supposed to be great for OCing, but I never have time to mess with it.

Of course then Newegg sends me a board for the newest i7 CPUs to test out, but..yeah. (Maximus VIII Ranger.) Always been a fan of Asus boards ever since A-Bit ceased to exist. (Well, a bit before then, as their last few boards were shit.)



Oh, yeah. HDD - I got this WD Blue SSHD 4TB drive from Newegg for review. Wow. I have my OS on a 500GB SSD, but STEAM and all my games live on this WD drive. It loads fast. WAY faster than my old 10,000 RPM drive. And 4TB should last your for a bit. (Always check Amazon vs Newegg, though. They are often cheaper especially if you have Prime.) http://tinyurl.com/nulvqmc

Man, editing this so much, lol. PSU -- I have 2 Corsair PSUs. (Yes, both from Newegg. I get free stuff to review.) These are also stupid quiet. I never hear this thing, especially since it is behind my motherboard. http://tinyurl.com/ov5xjnv Platinum Plus is great for your power bill to. (Gold is also good, but uses slightly more power from the socket.)
