I think it's all the Bonfires. One every 5 minutes, makes dying feel almost inconsequential.

Dark Souls 1 for liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiife.

I've had a dvd in the system for a while and have had fan or disc drive sounds that are loud for several seconds, but then stop. But this morning when I took out the dvd and put in Ni No Kuni, the system started humming loudly. I proceeded with the installation process for the game and it continued with the humming only when the disc WASN'T being read. It's even humming when a Blu Ray is sitting in it but I'm watching Netflix. I tried putting in some other Blu Rays (games and movies) and had the same result. It's whisper quiet when a plain old DVD is sitting in it.

Is anyone familiar with this issue? I've had to send my PS3 in twice for repairs due to yellow light of death, but I never encountered this. I've tried doing the fan test to see if that clears it up, but it doesn't.

Note: the system is vertical.

Edit: I swear I changed the forum to Playstation 3 platform before I posted. Sorry Mods.

No one is ever the only one do anything when it comes to forums. Stop asking.

I tried to play Witcher 2 a couple of times to get ready for Witcher 3, but it just isn't grabbing me. The combat is so... all over the place. Maybe Dark Souls ruined Third-Person melee combat for me forever.

I'm fine with podcast opinions and quick looks. A score next to a game doesn't mean anything to me, rather hear opinions.

@lukeweizer: Exactly, some of the casts contract were running out so they wanted to hold them out for a few and / or renegotiate. Also the new team is kind suppose to parallel the west coast avengers sorta.

It was cool to see that Marvel isn't afraid to mix things up and is willing to dig into the catalogue for an Avengers roster. It just felt like it was the last day of college and I had to say goodbye to my crew of friends. A little sad.

I had a similar issue when I watched The Sopranos a couple months ago (for the very firs time). It was good, but I enjoyed Mad Men and Breaking Bad more. And there in lies the problem. If I had watched The Sopranos in 1999 when it was released, it probably would've blown my mind. Same with you and The Wire. In 2002, I bet The Wire was an incredible TV (I haven't seen it), but since then, a lot of incredible TV shows have come out. So anyone who missed these early trend setters for riveting TV shows, might not be all that impressed.

Very few people watched the Wire when it was first shown. I watched it many years after it first aired and still think everything else pales in comparison. It's timeless!

I have heard that about it. I really want to watch it, but I'm in Canada where HBO streaming is pretty limited.

Enjoyed the movie overall. Disappointed in Ultron as a villain. Just felt like I didn't know what I was hating. Is he a sentient being that lived in the tesseract staff? Is that just what came out when Tony made the A.I.? Was a little confused at that. Also felt weird that he was just everywhere. Didn't know where to focus my hate or fear. It was weird.

Feels weird that they set up a new team. Feels like they want a way out of some contracts if need be.

I bought the Tales of Arabian Nights version of the game. Started looking through the other tables and quickly got overwhelmed. It seems like I can only get certain games individually (Black Knight 2000 Pro for $8), but most of them seem to be part of packs?

Can anyone recommend some good table packs or individual tables? Is Black Knight 2000 Pro worth the $8 or is the standard version good enough?
