    I refuse to even install Bad Rats. It went straight into my "ignore these games forever" category.

    I don't even care that it has cards. I wouldn't farm them to sell them even if they were worth a few bucks - every card sale on the market generates more money for the devs and they should not be getting rewarded.

    So we just left DirecTV. We had the optional equipment update package which meant I didn't have to send them back any of the equipment. Is there any good reason to not open the directv box, pull out the 500gb harddrive, reformat it and fill it full of games?

    It's been a while since I worked for DirecTV so I don't remember much, but depending on the model of DVR the drive will most likely have PUIS active on a firmware level instead of a jumper, and if so you'll have to use software to disable it in the configuration sector depending on the manufacturer of the drive.

    The drives used in DTV DVRs when I was there were generally Western Digitals at 5400RPM (to reduce heat).

    It's certainly doable.

    Alternately, you may just be able to eBay the whole DVR for more cash than a 500gb 5400rpm hard drive alone would cost you.

    Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it's anthropologically unjust

    I already checked - it's only like $50ish on ebay and shipping would be a pain in the neck. Actually it works out super well - we had the cable guy stop by today since our new cable was choppy and he highly recommended we replace our aging wireless router given the stupid amount of stuff we have connected to it. The one I'm looking at has a USB port for network storage so I think I'm going to put the drive in my extra usb hd enclosure thingy and use it to house my music library so everyone can access it anywhere in the house. We're picking it up tonight.

    Kind of sucks to have to buy a new router though...I can think of toys/games I'd much rather be buying :)

    I will continue to recommend Awesomenauts to anyone who looks at MOBA's and goes 'can I have one of those I can understand in an hour or two'.

    Also the Dead Island MOBA/shooter/RPG progression BS thing is great if you have friends to form a team. Otherwise I found it frustrating because it runs into that problem of the game mode being too complicated for pubs to plan with no voice.

    I can say with confidence that I can load up Awesomenauts for a round, maybe two, and have my fill and the game is fine with that. So as casual MOBAs go, that's a good indication. ;)

    Borderlands is fun. I doubt I'll put in a consecutive playthrough in New Game +, but that's due to how many games I have to play, not a commentary on the enjoyability of the game. I'll go back to new game+ any games I've already played once I get, say, halfway or more through my mammoth list of games.

    Also, I have found I prefer scoped firearms.

    So Sacred 3 is apparently a complete disaster and nothing like the previous two games:

    I almost bought it because the trailer looked awesome...then I checked the steam forum and found that link.

    It is actually a lot of fun, sure it isn't like the old ones but that does not make it automatically a bad game

    Yeah, most of that review was just "I wanted a re-skinned Diablo game, and this game was not a re-skinned Diablo game, so it is a bad game"

    If I look at what he's written and not his conclusions, I'm actually tempted to buy it. You know, when it shows up on a steam sale. I'm not $50 worth of tempted.

    I'm partial to Axton. "Hey, stand in front of this!"
    "Bad guys zero, turret a whooooole bunch!"
    "You get a bullet, and you get a bullet, EVERYBODY GETS A BULLET!"

    And when he gets the modulator, something like:
    "I sound like a giant douche - great."

    It helps that he shares a VO with the WarMage from Orcs Must Die!.

    And a quick search for the Axton as Jack quote led me here, which is great.

    Mount Your Friends is deceptively simple. You start just kind of flailing around and then your tower grows and you start to think the game might be too easy. Then you realize as the tower starts to veer left or right that you now have areas that are really tricky to get around and then you get those turns where you just can't get momentum going and the clock is constantly ticking. It's really pretty fun despite the fact that starting from person one is super frustrating.

    It's funny as hell in action too - I would actually set up a stream tonight but we've declared it "board game till midnight night".

    Gaige was cool and all I guess, but don't you want do 8 figures of ax damage, causing an enemy to explode in a ball of blood and fire "(bloodslode" if you will) starting a chain reaction of bloodsplotions of all the enemies around you. Or would you like to bounce in and our of fight fire your life, tossing dynamite at enemies before raising a fistful over your head in a glorious explosion wipes out the mob around you and brings you back to life.

    I'm not a melee player, so . . . nope! :D

    But what about blasting large swaths of baddies from range or close up with elemental destruction? Or in the case of the Borderlands series, grenades, rockets, shotguns and possibly scoped automatic whatevers?

    That's generally my modus operandi.

    4e? Better than...3e? *twitch*

    I do think that 4e is much better than 3e, but that's because it's the kind of system I like. It's my D&D, and that honestly should be fine. Just like some folks like LOL, some like DOTA, and some prefer Awesomenauts, while others want to play none of those games. Which are art. And art is a totally subjective experience. You can claim that a painting, a game, a piece of music is "better" but you're only doing so according to your own (or possibly someone else's) criteria. Over the ages, the musicality, artfulness or indeed even the gamish nature of media has been debated, but it will only ever be debated because in the end it's all about taste, and we all have differing tastes.

    Some people prefer the days of OD&D, or of classical painting, or classical music, while others love rock and roll, or hair metal, or B-movies, or D&D 4th edition and that's fine, because they are all perfectly valid things to enjoy.

    The only really invalid thing is to claim your subjective views should be everyone else's subjective views, and that's just gooseyness.



    So instead, use your subjective views to tell me why I should convince my wife to buy me Orcs Must Die. Possibly all of it. ;)
