Re: Cooleo Drives on Roads

I-94 through Chicago where everyone is typically going 20+ over the speed limit (65), and you can easily go into the triple digits without issue.

Otherwise, the most fun roads are back roads with lots of high speed curves. Well... unless you have a crappy car.

Re: new nintendo system

I know, someone else already pointed that out (and that news wasn't out when I made my post). Either way, I have a hard time seeing core gamers getting too excited about the Wii U until Nintendo proves themselves.

Re: new nintendo system

When people come over to our place, they want to play COD, mlb, mvc 3, madden, Guitar Hero, Halo and Dance Revolution. Not "Wii Sport's Sonic Sponge Bob Mario Olympics Lego Brothers Kiddie Kiddie Poo Poo III".... Ironically, I think the only games in that list that the Wii does not have are Halo an...

Same here. The console now feels more like a mildly upgraded Wii with a new accessory.

Re: new nintendo system

Listen, it comes down to this: Either you get it and see the big picture, or you're a Nintendo fanboy. Aglets was completely blind to life outside of Nintendo until the recent generation of consoles, and he defended the Gamecube to no end. That's fine, just like the guy claiming that the Wii has gam...

Re: new nintendo system

The Wii was inferior to the Xbox when it was released, and that was a year AFTER the 360 was out. So is it plausible? Absolutely, coming from Nintendo. The 3DS isn't even more powerful than the original PSP, is it? Remember that Nintendo isn't about making a powerful console, they want it to be just...

Re: new nintendo system

The footage of 3rd party games was actually taken directly from 360 and/or PS3. It wasn't running on the Wii U at all. http://consumerist.com/2011/06/nintendo-admits-it-used-footage-from-other-systems-to-show-off-capabilities-of-wii-u.html Before anyone says anything about how consumerist is a terr...

Re: new nintendo system

But it DOES matter, because their first party catalog of good games is typically small (hence the 5-10 games). I have a Wii, primarily for Smash Bros, and only have 5-7 additional games for it... most of which I got for $20 or less. First party games means they have to absorb the development costs, ...

Re: new nintendo system

I would assume $100-150 each for those controllers, with the saving grace that the guts in them don't feature high powered processors (it's streaming the video from the console itself). Knowing Nintendo's propensity to mark things up to make a profit, I'd imagine the $150 price tag is going to be mo...

Re: Doctor Who

The show disappeared from 1989 to 2005 because it had devolved (or always was?) crap.

Tennant as the Doctor is a huge reason why the reboot worked, something he's widely credited for.

Re: Doctor Who

Pretty sure Doctor Who stopped airing a while ago because of how craptastic it had become. David Tennant's doctor saved the franchise (only for Matt Smith to start dragging it down again).

Re: Cooleo Plays Games

LA Noire is an example of a game you WOULD have to devote a ton of time to. Best games you should get: Bayonetta Vanquish inFamous (1 is cheaper, 2 is better) God Of War 3 (and the GOW collection with 1 and 2 in it) Those are probably the most worthwhile games. Hell, you can probably get all of thos...

Re: Cooleo Plays Games

Definitely. The gameplay is way more fair - when you die, you know why. You have more control over dealing with enemies, and the combos never resort to button mashing.

Vanquish is probably the best 3rd person shooter I've ever played.

Re: Lets nerd out about COMPUTERS

An example of an Asus with decent specs (including dedicated video card) can be seen here on slickdeals.

Also keep in mind that any Windows laptop $699 and up comes with a free Xbox 360 if you're a student.

The best current laptops in terms of build quality and performance: Dell XPS 15z (yes, I know it's larger - but 1080p screen!) HP Envy 14 (although it no longer offers the amazing 1600x900 screen :( ) Sony S-Series (13" with optional 1600x900 screen) If you're willing to sacrifice build quality and ...

Re: Cooleo Plays Games

Platinum Games makes the best games available. Bayonetta and Vanquish are the two best games I've played in the past year and a half, and Madworld is quite good as well.

Re: Lets nerd out about COMPUTERS

Actually current AMD chips are great for gaming if you're looking for the price/performance comparison (i.e. you're on a budget).

If you have the money though, the Intel chips are superior.

Re: What TV shows should I watch?

Lie to Me got canceled? Blah. :? Yeah, apparently if it's not either a reality show or a brainless stupid comedy with a laugh track, it's no good. (Like how is Mike & Molly still on the air?) Lie To Me was supposed to be canceled after the first season, but somehow made it to a second AND third sea...
