I'm still happy with my GTX 970, can't see myself trading it in anytime soon. Maybe when the 1170 comes out, or the 1270 ( ), but honestly the 970 is still a real beast of a card.

The Night Manager was good but loses steam in the last two episodes and never really lives up to the tension and intrigue that initially hooks you. I think they miscast Hugh Laurie, great actor who easily handles the more human side of his character but can't pull off the menacing sociopath aspect when required, he always looked like he and the crew were having a laugh. On the plus side some amazing location shoots, great performances from the supporting cast and I like mini-series because they don't overstay their welcome. Hiddleston was great and they stayed fairly close to the book.

I thought the final episode did slow down a little, but the ending was still decent, and it did still keep keep me on the edge of my seat.

I actually liked the casting of Hugh Laurie and thought he was genuinely scary in his role. However, I also thought Tom Hiddleston and (especially) Olivia Colman were the standout performers in a good cast.

Colman's performance was electric - totally believable.

I just want to say I finished The Night Manager miniseries last night, and HOLY SHIT...highly recommended! I can now see why people want Hiddleston to play James Bond.


Yeas, I enjoyed that one a lot as well. I didn't see a bad performance in the whole piece - everyone does a great job bringing it to life.

Having never played very far into Bioshock, this is a good time for me to play it from start to finish. (maybe once the bugs have been looked at)

People recommend Bioshock? (I played and enjoyed Infinate)


The first one in particular I'd consider a classic. Not so much from a gameplay perspective, but from a story and art perspective.


Same here, although I didn't finish it. The atmosphere was excellent but it reminded me too much of an underwater System Shock 2, with much better models but without Sh0dan.

On the plus side, Sh0dan occasionally comes over to Barad-Dur for tea and cakes. She's really not that bad tempered once you get to know her/it/them.

I still have to play the first one, which is next on my list after I finish The Witcher 3 (which is completely awesome!).

So it might take a while to get to the DOS sequel...

The Scots have been amazing inventors/scientists. Penicillin, for starters. I think the country is so cold and wet, they have plenty of time to sit around and think.

Sadly, they also invented golf...

I got this for free as part of a hardware deal, and installed it, but I haven't played it a single time. If it had bots I would give it a shot but jumping right into MP with random strangers just isn't my thing.

Here at Barad-Dur, we have a sponsorship deal with Samsung. The orcs love the battery life and speed of the S7.

Plus, it can be used as a grenade if the going gets tough.

I agree Blue, I was living downtown on 27th St in NYC on 9/11/01. Bad news all around.

I was actually at the World Trade Center yesterday, dropping off a friend at the PATH train. Didn't think it would bring back as many memories as it did, for sure.

And sorry for your loss, man. Losing a parent is awful, and their absence never seems to get easier.

Just finished Deus Ex Mankind Divided. Seriously, the ending sucked balls. Felt like the game ended about 3/4 of the way through. Also the credits roll on for about 15 minutes and there is no way to stop them other than to CTRL+ALT+DEL and force the program to shut down...I mean they roll on so long that the ending "theme" song loops about 3 times...

We're proud of our work! You WILL watch every name who built this best game in history!

Yeah, and I even wouldn't mind that so much if the ending was a satisfying conclusion to the story. But damn, its like (without spoilers) thats it? For fuck's sake they even got Adam Jensen griping about not being done with anything in the last cutscene, and if that's not the height of irony I don't know what is...

I haven't even finished Deus Ex: Human Revolution - got it on the hard drive right now, in fact. Please tell me the ending to that one is better...

Worth buying the game for this?

Lol Hell Naaaaaah. The game looks like ass anyways on Beth's Ancient DerpBryo Engine. Besides no amount of volumetric lighting can make the shit gameplay, dialogue, quests, or c&c better. I always find stuff like this funny, "Oh wow, maybe if I install this ENB or shiny grafix, the game will be more palatable." I guess, these games being walking sims with deep "stuff" to look at is enough.

I'm kinda on the fence about it, after playing for around 50 hours. It's fun, but shallow and I find I'm starting to lose interest. Not so much due to the graphics or the RPG-lite gameplay, but more due to the fact that (spoilers ahead): I can't understand the motivation of the Institute. Why are they so intent on replacing people with synths?

Overall, I think it's decent, but I enjoyed Skyrim a lot more and am enjoying Witcher 3 a hell of a lot more.

I can't remember the details, but I do know they had the science and technology to "fix" the world. I was all for them. The choices I was able to make really echoed my own feelings. That, I liked.

But yeah, for me F4 is utterly overshadowed by Skyrim. When I played F4, it felt like an underwhelming F3 expansion. Skyrim was something new entirely.

In fact, I'm almost irrationally excited about the prospect of another Skyrim playthrough once the Special Edition comes out. Maybe this time I finally get myself to finish Dawnguard, as well.

I enjoyed Dawnguard, but thought Dragonborn was better. It really took me back to Morrowind, which was not a bad thing at all.

I'm actually pretty interested in Enderal, the new Skyrim TC. But that will have to wait until I finish Witcher 3, I think - I've been putting off finishing that one for far too long and it's way too good for me to do so any longer.

Pooh on the deep vent hypothesis.

I find it hard to believe that we are not descended from primordial pond scum.

The orcs here in Barad-Dur are actually pond scum, slightly genetically modified by yours truly.

It all works fine, just don't try to have a conversation with them that involves words of more than one syllable.

Really? No Man's Florp is #1?

I`m really looking forward to the mental gymnastics the Boo Camp will have to go through to produce some excuses when this game refuses to flop (something that looks more and more likely every day).

What`s it gonna be lads? Gimme a taste already

I might give it a shot, but only after the reviews are in.

For $15 sans fries the burger had better be good. Anyplace with tartare on the menu should know how to handle their meat.
I get turned off by the places that think the bigger the patty the better the burger and frequently it's the opposite.

Saddly, eating out is sometimes like the lottery, glad you found a winner.

Burger did come with fries, even though the menu doesn't mention it. It was a 7oz patty, which is large but manageable (I make 8oz patties myself). It may seem overpriced to an out-of-towner, but that price isn't out of line for a large burger in a fancy Manhattan restaurant.

The burgers at Harlem Shake are pretty good, Blue. It's at 124th and Lenox if you ever get the chance.
