    @bonbonetti: If I remember correctly, and it's been 10 years since I read the book or watched the film, the book wasn't very action packed either. A lot of pondering with interspersed action, but it's...

    Thanks for sharing this. It reminds me of the pain of trashing my decade+ old EGM collection because my mom convinced me to de “clutter”. She wasn’t opposed to the magazines, and I am not a pick rat b...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Is Giantbomb making less content now?. on the General Discussion board

    Man this comes up almost every year. And every year since my first kid was born I just wish I had time to watch even the content I’m most interested in. Before that (since the beginning) I watched eve...

    @ginormous76: hahaha, unfortunately that isn’t happening. I have a little Kindle Fire that is more conducive to a harmonious marriage. But, it still doesn’t solve the football fatigue.

    @frytup: yeah, I definitely was feeling football fatigue, and I love football. NFL and NCAA. But a break is nice too. Off season is when I find more time for gaming.

    @billmcneal: there are several players that are former NFL players.

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Why don't people like the Watchmen?. on the General Discussion board

    I love when these old posts pop up, some of which I commented on 10 years ago. Though I think I missed this one. I personally read the graphic novel before seeing the film. I liked both and was surpri...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic How have your gaming habits changed as you get older?. on the General Discussion board

    As a kid I would play as much as my parents/obligations would let me. In high school and college I played at least a couple hours every 2-3 day, if not more. Now I have a family and am lucky if I get ...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Game Of The Decade For You. on the General Discussion board

    For me it’s Mass Effect 2. Forza Horizon and Control are the only experiences even close (I never would have thought I’d play a game so close to a David Lynch film). Nothing else comes close to how mu...

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Rate My PC. on the General Discussion board

    The 2070 Super might be overkill for 1080p for now, but down the road (and especially with ray tracing enabled games) it's a good card to have. It also gives you room if you plan on upgrading your tv...

    I was wondering the same thing. Was looking forward to it as I’m up every few hours at night with a newborn.

  • Paliv posted a message in the forum topic Your download speed, cost, and data cap. on the General Discussion board

    Albuquerque, NM 250 down 12 up. I usually get about 290 down and 10 up from overprovisioning. I don’t think my neighbors use much internet. It’s like $90/mo from Comcast. A total racket, but the only ...

    Congrats! My second is due in just a couple weeks, I can’t wait and am still terrified the second time around. Enjoy fatherhood!
