I doubt, but wonder if this will include college football. If so, I wouldn't mind paying $10 for that during the season. CBS ends up covering a lot and even DVRing it and skipping through the commercials gets tedious. I think I can say with confidence that they have the most per game of any network...

I tried the game way back in early 2013 (I think it was still in beta?) and just couldn't get into it. Too slow and too much killing crabs on a beach for what seemed like eternity. That said, it looks like a lot has changed. I will definitely be giving it another go.

The Japan's arcades article on Financial Times seems to want me to sub... not going to do that, but I will say that I miss arcades in the US. I know they aren't totally dead, but at least in this area they are pretty close.

This is something I would be really into... many many years ago. Too little too late I think, but I guess time will tell.

Project Cars isn't too bad with a controller but it is a ton more fun with the wheel. After some practice you can push the cars to the limits much better with the wheel than with the controller. Much smoother for steering also. It is however a pain in the ass to set it up and tear it down if you don't have a dedicated wheel stand.

Thanks for the reply. Sounds fun, wish I had room for that. I would love a wheel and pedal setup, but I already use 1/2 my 'LAN PC' second desk for my previously mentioned flight setup and it really just sees use when I play Sturmovik games and very rarely some others. I think my better half would frown on the purchase, but honestly the desk space is a big concern with my setups at this point too. Sad

feel of cars with my G27 wheel and pedals were great.

I always felt it looked kind of neat, but I had Forza with my little controller, so I stayed away. How is it with a controller? I would like a wheel, but I wasted enough money and desk space on my Saitek X52 for games I really don't play very often. Not sure I could go for a wheel and pedal setup.

If I am looking for a specific trailer, I'll go to YouTube. What I originally used IMDB for a lot was perusing movie trailers for both upcoming and recently released films in order to find films to either go and see at the theater (not so much) or put them in my Netflix DVD queue. It used to be a good place to do that, it had separate trailer lists for "recent", "popular" and something else I can't remember off the top of my head -- they dropped the third one. Anyway, it used to be you'd only find movies in those lists -- not anymore.

Not a bad idea at all. I never used it that way, but now I kind of wish I had.

Maybe they have made advancements, but M&K converters have existed for a very long time. In the past they were just never any good.

I never used their message boards but I have to say I'm less and less pleased with their site. I'm tired of having to weave through tv series and computer game trailers while perusing trailers for a movie to watch. More the computer games than the tv shows, but still even the tv shows annoy me a bit. I understand why it's there, and it is completely reasonable, but they need better separation IMHO.

Or maybe I am just being a whiny curmudgeon -- it is my job after all..

I like IMDB for a great many things, but I have never used it for trailers. Any reason you go there instead of YouTube etc?

pretty nifty. There are better heroes I'd like to see, but still neat.

Pretty much this. I can think of a lot of heroes I would like to see, but he does look interesting and a change of pace.

$630 original price. This is apple, which means if that software were on other platforms the total price would probably be about $250.

Except it wouldn't... Final Cut Pro, Logic Pro X, Motion, Compressor, and MainStage 3 are included. You can argue that similar software on Windows (Linux is sadly a non-factor here) should be cheaper, or that the Apple software should be cheaper if you want, but that is a good price for real content creation software on either platform currently.

I have to admit, though, that I never played Planescape Torment

*GASP* You need to get on that ASAP. There are quite a few mods that help it feel more 'modern' if you need any links. Torment is absolutely worth the play.

That's why you see some guys flourish on certain teams and do poorly on others. It's an entire mix of elements.

This is indeed true, but 'the comback kid' wasn't purely earned on the 49ers. And while Montana wouldn't have the legacy he does without Jerry Rice, "the catch" (for example) was to Dwight Clark - Montana could utilize pretty much any weapon and that is a huge part of what made him great.

I didn't even think of VR sports, pretty crazy potential for application there once they find a good solution

I would think even now they could do a very reasonable Quarterback Club type of game. Then again that could also just be my inner child wanting this to be great. I played a lot of Joe Montana's Sports Talk Football as a kid...

Breach is a pile of freemium crap (complete with randomized microtransactions), which is a shame

Ah, oh well :/

I was curious exactly what Breach was because that blurb doesn't really tell me, but I guess now I know.

Meanwhile, the new mode is laughable. Lacks all the drama and tension that CTF should have...

Leave it to Blizzard to fuck up CTF. A timer to pick up the flag? Really?

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but I have been having fun with the mode. It has me playing again at least. Not every game's version of CTF has to be exactly the same anyway. It isn't like planting / defusing the bomb in Counter-Strike instead of just running over the bomb site was so game ruining thing that sapped all 'drama and tension' (the opposite really). Plus I feel like some of the class mechanics fit better this way. I have already 'flown' to a runner I was healing right before they died and picked up the flag and continued on to score. If I had been able to do that w/o any wait time I am sure people would just be complaining about that instead. Can't please everyone.

I do think new mode specific maps for this would be a much better idea.

If Overwatch is gambling then those silly random toy vending machines outside grocery stores. Oh, and packs of baseball cards, and every CTG ever. My goodness the gambling industry has our children!

Won't somebody please think of the children?!?

I picked up Halo Wars for like $7, got a copy for a friend. Had a GREAT time playing it co-op through the campaign.

It never seemed that interesting to me, but I am a sucker for good co-op. I will have to give it a look.

Ok, when people here say they dislike Windows 10, do you say they're "off" because they used to use MS-DOS?

First I would say you seem to be taking this very personally, but if Microsoft started making MS-DOS branded PCs in a time machine and shipped them back in the past and had much of anything to do with the origins of MS-DOS then... I guess so? Microsoft and Apple / NeXT are not really anything alike in what they made/make so you are reaching pretty far here.

The logos are nothing alike. What are you even talking about? Inquisitive Beamer put down the pipe and get some sleep buddy...
