Just got done watching the first episode of the Legends House. IDK where they are going to go with that show. They made Piper out to be a crazy guy ready to explode at any second. The Piper/Hacksaw with the blender bit was the best part of that show though.

Between Trips's entrance at WM and Stephanie referring to Kane as Kane's Demon Form, WWE is slowly getting more Japanese.

For some reason, Xfinity isn't listing Raw online since Wrestlemania ended. So my question to you is... why did Kane lose his business slacks? Did The Undertaker start another fire in the past two weeks?

Right when I got back into wrestling, my on demand option ended and now I'm at a loss :(

The mods yelled at me the list time I listed a link to the site so I won't bother. Just going to say that there are plenty of sites out there that let you watch the show live or archived to stream on your PC. You just gotta Google for it and you can find it. There are plenty of wrestling sites for that stuff besides the WWE Network. A lot of those sites even have the WWE Network exclusive stuff like that Legends House or the Ultimate Warrior dedication videos, and they are even a great place to watch indie stuff just trying to get word of mouth out about their guys if you are into it.

I want to believe this will be as amazing as Origins, but 2 burned me so badly I just can't take that leap of faith. One of the biggest things I hated about 2 was the look of the combat. They made everyone jump around doing teleports, jumping 30 feet into the air doing 1080 flips, and it looked like some terrible anime. So when the first thing I see in this trailer is that mage guy flipping around the staff I let out a sigh. I hope they go back to the more realistic and heavy look of the first game. They had a weight to how they attacked and looked in that game that just felt really good to me. It looked real and not some hyper fake combat.

I have been ignoring everything about this game as I don't want to get my hopes up like I did for 2. I will wait till it's a few days out from release and then dive into all the promo material and see what they are doing then. From what little I have seen it looks like they are trying to make The Witcher: Dragon Age Edition. Which does not appeal to me as I didn't care for those games. We will see come closer to release I guess.

Spot on sir. The combat looks too exaggerated. On the other hand it may feel different with the top-down camera view, guess we'll see. Besides this, does anybody here have a problem with the dialog wheel in Dragon Age games? Something about it just doesn't feel right...

The wheel is one of the other major reasons I dislike DA2, and disliked Mass Effect. It boils conversations down to a binary good, douchebag, evil choice and gives no exploration or reason to replay. One of the reasons I put close to a thousand hours into DA:O was because of the traditional dialogue trees allowing so much variety and exploration that every time I replayed the game it felt like I was discovering something different each time. When they use the wheel all it does is make me decide at the start of the game if I want to be a bad guy or a good guy and I just know to pick the top or bottom accordingly. I don't feel like I'm playing an RPG with choice anymore and that I'm just playing a linear adventure book and every so often I have to pick if I want to keep seeing the good guy story or the bad guy story.

Maybe if you really looked at the traditional dialogue tree it boils down to being the same thing and it's just an illusion of choice due to how it's presented. All I know is I never want to replay an RPG with the wheel because of the above mentioned, and have replayed RPG's with the traditional dialogue tree over and over because I feel like I'm seeing something new, or the same thing from different angles each time.

Honey or yellow mustard. Never liked anything else. Breakfast sausages I never put anything on em. Just pick em up and munch on em.

I do tech support for HTC and I can tell you no one uses Windows phones. We get maybe 2-3 calls on them a day compared to the hundreds for our other phones. Maybe that means they are super stable and no one needs to call us for help with them, or the more likely scenario of no one has them.

From my time dicking around with them I actually prefer a lot about them to android to be honest. I like the front end interface and just general UI stuff is a lot nicer to look at and use once you learn all the little quirks and differences the OS has. As you mentioned in the OP though, the APP store is non existent. If you are the type to want all the latest crappy phone apps then WP is not for you. If you actually use your phone for the built in stuff like pictures, texts, phone calls, etc. then it's a great phone.

Stole this one from penny arcade. Here's a fun question to wrap your brain around. How is that hundreds of artists can create art for your years to make a game, yet the end result not be art?

@crusader8463: Yeah, it's tricky to define some of these things. It's possible to be physically attracted to one sex, but not emotionally. I think that's the easiest way to word it, even if it's missing most of the nuances. Actually, no, I just re-read what you wrote, and that doesn't really fit. Hm...

Really, I think the best answer I can give you is that even though we have these "nice and clean" descriptors that people like myself can use, there's absolutely no reason why you should feel the need to apply any of them to yourself. Just be who you are, and that's all anyone can ever ask of you. Or at least all that anyone should ever ask of you. So long as you're happy with yourself, that's what matters.

That's how I look at it. It's just that the way most peoples brains work requires things to be in a group or to have a label and when it doesn't it gets weird. The same way in the video game industry people still want to use stuff like FPS, RPG, Strategy game, when so much of what used to make those genres unique are being mixed together these days or games that have such a mish mash it's impossible to give it a unique label.

I just call it me being me. And I think I will just stick with Straight and keep the little * in my head. :)

@crusader8463: Add in Carmen Sandiego and Oregon Trail, and that was my PC childhood.

Because I played stuff like that growing up I always laugh when people complain about using a Mouse and Keyboard to play 2D sidescrollers.

I also played some edutainment Math game a lot, but I can't remember anything about it other than that it had frogs eating bugs and some how you made math by doing it. OH! And that Lego Island game Drew played on some UPF. Played the fuck out of that.

Grats on coming out. Hope everyone is accepting and it all goes well for ya. And anyone that shuns you, well they were not worth having around anyway.

I'm a guy and I have always been in a weird kind of way when it comes to my sexuality and I feel like there's no right term for it. I find the thought of being with a guy sexually to be very unappealing, but I still find looking at male genitals to be arousing. Maybe it's from all the time I spent looking at my own growing up that did that. I'm not sure. So as a result I find myself only attracted to females, or "males" who have had a sex change but kept their male part down below to be the best mix. But I can only find myself attracted to these shemales -IDK the correct PC term sorry- if they have had all of their masculine features about their body feminized and even a hint of their male form is a turn off for me.

So ya. IDK if that makes me Bi, or just straight with an asterisk(*) after it. lol
