Re: Kicking The Tires On A New TV...Advice Needed

I owned two Panny plasmas and still use my set I bought in 2009 as my gaming TV. Never much issue with IR, even with static logos, but I also broke it in pretty carefully and until the last couple years used it for TV and gaming. I've never had any issue with IR when viewing content, only with the i...

Re: Battlefield 4

Reinstalled this game today from EA Access. Played it tonight for the first time probably this year. Holy f*ck -- I forgot how good this game is as a modern FPS. The graphics are a bit dated, and the collision detection can be wonky in places. But damn, BF4 still stands up as a fantastic game. Had ...

Re: Madden 18

I can't remember the last time I thought about selling a Madden game as quickly as this one. It's especially baffling to me because I liked 17 a lot and played several seasons in franchise. But 18 feels so boring, partly because I get exactly the same results with each game. I started a Bears franch...

Re: NFL 2016/2017

Bears game was a heartbreaker. The defense played well against a tough Atlanta offense, but the long TD to Austin Hooper was such a horrible lapse in the secondary, I thought they re-signed Chris Conte. Tarik Cohen was awesome, and I hope he continues to be a bright spot on an otherwise stale offens...

Re: Horizon: Zero Dawn

I picked this up in part because of the recommendations here, and even just a few hours in it's clear how great this game is. I don't think I've seen a game where the world feels as organic as this one does. The creatures and machines roaming about, the way the tall grass moves, the weather...it fee...

Re: HBO : GAME OF THRONES - Spoiler Thread

I am loving this season. The first episode is the only one I would say was a bit slow -- everything since has been mostly meat and very little filler. There are niggling logic things that I am surprised the writers don't see -- for example, how do Jaime and Bronn both swim away from a battle in full...

Re: Madden 18

Love that injuries have been toned down and they also have off the ball injuries. They say the reduced the season ending injuries a lot and increase the 2 week injuries. Be interesting to see how this turns out. Off-the ball injuries are really huge if you play all your franchise games like I do. I...

Re: Madden 18

The blocking changes sound amazing. The idea of using the AWR of the whole line and emphasizing the center changes a lot, not just for gameplay, but drafting and free agency in CFM.

Re: HBO : GAME OF THRONES - Spoiler Thread

This season is pretty much giving me everything I would want right now. I could watch an hour of Arya/Brianne fighting outtakes. The only thing I don't like is the dragon ballista is lame. They should have spiced it up by making a catapult that would shoot The Mountain at a dragon.

The Spy Who Loved Me was my favorite Bond movie as a kid, and he was perfect for that stretch of more arch Bond movies in the 70s.

Fellas. Can anyone give any advice on the bunting? Seems as if all of my bunts are way too hard and resemble soft ground balls more than bunts. I play mostly offline. Thanks. It is difficult this year -- the "rocket bunts" are there. I think it probably depends on the hitting interface. I play Zone...

Have not noticed anything in game, playing on standard PS4 and on a plasma TV. I see occasional issues on cut scenes but nothing that different than what you see in a lot of other games.

Re: OT: California to Texas

I agree with DB -- I think if the company headquarters is moving, you want to stay with the company long term, and you were already looking to leave Cali, moving makes sense. Houston will be hot as balls compared to where you are, and I think a life in dry California cannot really prepare you for th...

Yewah but they picked a D2 TE in round 2, the city is on fire :D I actually was excited about that pick after I saw his highlight reel, that guy is a physical freak.

Re: NFL 2016/2017

Like Dan said, Rob had a good comment on this on Facebook. The trade is really not relevant for the Bears if Trubinsky becomes a franchise QB. I personally am not a fan of the move as I don't feel any of the QBs in this draft warranted going in the top 10. All teams need a QB, but at the same time, ...

Re: MLB The Show 17

The thing I love about this game is how it feels like an accomplishment when you succeed. Was just goofing around in a game with the Cubs at the Rockies, and I got surprisingly rocked by Colorado while pitching with Jake Arrieta and was down 6-3. Came back to win 7-6 as Javy Baez went 4-4 with 5 rbi...

Re: Battlefield 1

I actually sold this yesterday. It is such a well-made game but I simply couldn't get into it. Despite all the cool things like horses and behemoths and the plethora of fixed guns, I missed a lot of the more high-tech weaponry of previous Battlefields. One of the only times I ever felt bad about not...
