1  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: Today at 01:40:02 PM
There are lots of fun games on PS4.  Not all are exclusive, but some I've enjoyed are Dragon Quest Heroes, Diablo 3, Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, InFamous: Second Son, Lego Marvel Super Heroes (and Lego Batman 3).  We gave Disgaea 5 and Dragon Age: Inquisition good reviews, and Persona 5 will be on it as well.

Guessing you don't have a Vita, but I've really appreciated having the ability to use it to play my PS4 games remotely as well.  Oh, and they have announced that they're working on adding PC support, so you could play your PS4 games on your PC.  This is something that's most useful if you travel, but still, it's nifty.

I streamed DQH from the PS4 last Sunday as well, and that was pretty painless and fun.

And this may sound dumb, but I love that I can put my PS4 on standby at any time.  I don't have to wait until I get to a save point and turn it off.  Instead, just like my 3DS, I just decide I'm done playing for now, put it into Rest Mode, and walk away.

Wow.  I had to back off on mine, because I couldn't stand the backlog any more.  I'm down to 12, and at least 2 of them don't update on a normal basis.

No problem, I moved it.  I bet someone will have an idea - we love music around here and that's for sure.

I enjoyed it a lot when reviewing it.  I'll be streaming it Sunday, if you want to watch and ask questions and such.

Quick reminder, we'll be doing our first weekly stream tomorrow.  Caitlin will be playing Fallout 4 - should be fun!

Ah yes, I had almost forgotten that the special stats worked differently in the first games than they do now.  (Used to be that certain elements were normal and certain were special, all the time, instead of some attacks being normal and some special within the same element.)

Looks like Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures.

Here's Rob's review!


And yep, we got a review copy from Bethesda.  We don't get them for every game, but we love it when we're able to provide a review right away. :)

As we announced a few weeks ago, as of November 15th, we're going to be streaming games for about 90 minutes each Sunday, starting at noon Eastern.  We'll have a different staffer streaming each week (there are about half a dozen of us who are planning to participate as of now), and we're planning to focus on games that are new and hot or on games that aren't out yet when possible.  When we don't have cool new stuff to show off, we'll instead bring you games that we just plain enjoy.  I'll try to keep this post updated with the upcoming schedule, although please understand that things aren't written in stone, and we may end up with last minute substitutions from time to time.

Please use this thread to suggest games you'd like to see and to give us feedback on how it's going.  We think this is going to be a fun way to spend a bit of our weekend, and we hope you do too.

Upcoming schedule:
11/15 - Fallout 4 with Caitlin Argyros
11/22 - Dragon Quest Heroes with John Tucker

I'm gonna be a teeny bit less magnanimous and change the title of the thread. :)

That's pretty much exactly how I feel about that book.  I've been working on it, but I've put it down at least twice to read a whole other book.  Part of this is due to the fact that I've had holds on books at the library, and I had to read them while I had them, but it was a welcome break, even though I like Words of Radiance.

It's probably people who went through the user creation steps, but then didn't want to come back after we made them wait to get approved.  Not necessarily because it was a long wait, but because it was a wait at all.  But we'll keep it in place, because it (mostly) keeps the spammers out.  Besides, if you didn't even care enough to come back after getting approved (the system does send an email), you probably don't care enough to be an active member.
13  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fallout 1,2,Van Buren,Tactics and Brotherhood of Steel Concept Art on: November 02, 2015, 11:53:31 PM
Ah, Brotherhood of Steel.  I feel like I enjoyed it when it originally came out, or at least at some point near then, but when I realized we didn't have a review for it several years later, I played it again and realized why everyone hated it.

But the other games are great!  I have a physical copy of Fallout 1, and I've always been impressed by what a cohesive package it is.  Even the manual fits the game's theme and feel.  And of course, those were the legendary days of huge manuals you actually read, so that was a great way to pull people into the game's world before they even got it installed.

Oh yeah, my friends in India told me that if any movie there comes out without music, people don't want to see it.  I have the DVD of a Bollywood movie called Ghajini, which is a sort of remake of Memento (although the filmmaker says it's not).  It starts out with a scary chase scene with a killer, then about 20 minutes into the movie, jumps bang into a musical number.

I like the Johnny Depp Sweeney Todd (Sascha Baron Cohen has a great part), but people are definitely going to bash it for being done by the Tim Burton Players.

I'm excited for you to see all of these shows!

Movies... I'm in-class support for some special needs students in an American Musical Theatre class this semester, and so far we've seen Showboat, Singing in the Rain, Oklahoma (which I missed due to bereavement absence), and are now watching My Fair Lady.  My favorite so far was easily Singing in the Rain.  That face Gene Kelly makes towards the end when
he, Cosmo, and RF Simpson are about to pull the curtain on Lina Lamont
is the stuff Internet memes are made of.  Cosmo was my favorite character and the overwhelming class favorite.  His performances in "Make 'em Laugh" and "Moses Supposes" were also class favorites, especially the latter. 

Musicals are, for some reason, a big deal in Utah, but I've still never seen Showboat!  Probably should some time.

Singin' in the Rain is pretty great, and I'm with you on Cosmo.  My Fair Lady is a good one to have seen, but not my favorite show.  The Unsinkable Molly Brown is one I've seen a number of times, because it's my wife's favorite, and I like it, but the scene with the stove in the cabin is hard for me to watch, out of empathy.  It stars Debbie Reynolds, who is the lead in Singin', so if you liked her (and how could you not?), check that one out.

I'd also recommend Paint Your Wagon, if for no other reason than the fact that it really does feature Lee Marvin and Clint Eastwood singing.  (Actually, here's the real thing.  There are bunches of copies out on YouTube, and they're not new or messed with to defeat copyright detection software, so I assume Paramount doesn't care.)

In more modern stuff, I enjoyed the movie version of Rock of Ages, even though I really dislike Tom Cruise.  And I love Avenue Q, but there's no movie version of that available.
