    Vita news

    I'm a huge fan of the Deception series, and am contemplating getting a Vita for Deception IV. I'm just curious if anyone here has a Vita, or if there any other worthwhile games for it.
  3. Really excited about this movie. Also, got to say, Chris Pratt looks amazing. Quite the transformation, body-wise, from Andy in Parks & Rec.
  4. Pretty much addicted to Dragons Crown right now. It's really messing with my daily routine, as I have trouble putting it down. I always want to go back for one more dungeon run, even when I have other things to do. It's a beautiful game to look at and fun to play.
  5. She and Brock are the only two competent characters. I think that's the point. Most of the failures seen on the show are because of people's own egos. Dr. Mrs. Monarch has always been a level headed character, and she has put others before herself on more than one occasion. You could say that her failure is she thinks there is more to the Monarch, and constantly defends him, even though he will never achieve anything. Brock's failure is obviously in the love department, never being able to have the one woman he truly wants. Am I the only one that wants to see Gary succeed one day?
  6. I've long been a huge Venture Bros fan, but the three years in between last season and this one, plus the fact that this season is only eight episodes long is driving me mad. I guess Adult Swim needs more room to run reruns of Fox cartoons.

    Things you want

    I really want one of these. Either the Mega Man or one of the Legend Of Zelda ones..
  8. I think the whole military aspect is being blown out of proportion. If you look at the numbers, in the last 12 years only 0.45% of the American population served during the Global War on Terror. That's a miniscule market that Microsoft isn't going to lose much money over. Secondly, in my honest opinion, as a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan, if you're biggest concern while deployed is playing a video game, you should just shut up. You need to realize you're in the military and you have a job to do, and there will be plenty of time to play games when you get back to the states. You should be concerned about doing your job and ensuring you and the Marines, Sailors, Airmen, and Soldiers you deployed with make it home safe.
  9. That's been my biggest question, what happens next generation. Do your games become glorified paper weights? Unfortunately he didn't answer it. The whole interview reminded me of the 80's guy from Futurama, "Don't you worry about blank, let me worry about blank."
  10. Started Sleeping Dogs this weekend. I could never get into GTA4 for some reason or another, and never got why everyone thought it was the greatest game ever. However Sleeping Dogs has really got me hooked, it does everything GTA does and does it better in my opinion. Also I love the setting and it has me very nostalgic for the time I spent in Hong Kong. The game really captured the city life there, everything seems authentic.
  11. Just curious to see how much everyone pays for movie tickets where they live. On Saturday I took a date to see Iron Man in 3D, and I was blown away by how much movie tickets cost now. The tickets at the theater I went to were 20 dollars each, so I spent 40 bucks to take my date to the movies, and this was just regular 3D, it wasn't even at an IMAX theater or anything that fancy. True, it has been awhile since I've been to a movie theater, it just seems like I paid too much. So, I'm curious to see if the high price was due to the theater I saw it at, or if movies just cost that much in today's market.

    Adventure Time is like a gateway to LSD, or maybe it's the other way around...

    3d pen taking backers on Kickstarter, suppose to be released January 2014.
  14. It's been awhile since I read EGM, but when I did I always thought it was a fair and balanced magazine, so I'm blown away that they gave this game a 9 out of 10. Not only are they the only review over a 5, but it was over twice the average score of 4.1.
  15. That's Tough Mudder, which I'm doing in 2 weeks. This is the one I did today
  16. My legs are destroyed and my body is sore, but today I made it to the finish line of the SoCal Super Spartan Race. It was tough, but fun.

    The Apple Inc. Thread

    Is it just me, or is the new iTunes just horrible?
  18. So, the girl in my life, now my ex, can go fuck herself. I've been out of the country for 5 days, and she's already with someone else. The fucked up part is she didn't even tell me. The first time I'm around internet since leaving the states, I go to message her and am welcomed to posts on her Facebook about how she's in a relationship with another guy. So I message her and ask what's up with that, and the only response I get is "Don't talk to me like that." Fucking awesome start to a deployment.
  19. Gamer complains to FTC over the ending. Wow, really?!
  20. In the video she was being led away peaceably by the cop until she decided to elbow him in the face. Sorry but when you assault someone, especially a cop, with no provocation you're going to get taken down.
  21. downloaded it and loved it. I'm really looking forward to this show.
  22. People are already complaining that it's nothing like the show.
  23. Think it's time to just call it quits. Basically she told me she couldn't get the time off work to come see me before I leave the states, it sucks but I understood. However, when I went to message her my overseas address today, I found out she flew to Chicago this morning to spend St. Patrick's Day there for whatever reason. To put this in context, she lives in the bay area of California, so going to Chicago is a big trip. I mean, fuck, if she just didn't want to come out for whatever reason, that's one thing. I would have been hurt but at least it would have been the truth. I just fucking hate getting lied too. Plus, I guess I see where I stand to her, she'd rather go sightseeing and drinking in another state than saying goodbye to a guy she supposedly loves, a guy who (knock on wood) might not come back. I'm so over this.
  24. There is that comic coming out soon that's set right after TLA. I did not know that, thanks for informing me. I just looked it up and the first one came out at the end of January.
