    Disney Infinity 2.0

    I have a question for anyone that owns Disney Infinity 2.0. I don't think it will matter which console though. With the first Infinity, in the Play Set games, once you played through the game with one character, if you went back to play it with another figure, the entire game was already...

    Apple Watch

    The requirement that you must also have an iphone for it to work is a limiting factor. I could see using the Watch if it was more of a stand alone device, but I'm not buying a new iPhone just to use it. It's not a $350 Watch, it is a $650 extra widget for your phone (assuming you don't already...

    Origin keeps making me re-login. Somebody trying to hack the account?

    Not sure if this helps or not, but Origin sucks.

    Anybody else use Sweetfx for there games?

    Don't use them in online multiplayer games. PunkBuster WILL flag it as an exploit and ban you, regardless of what their website tells you. Had half a dozen people in my gaming group get banned for using one of them.

    Acivation Limits of games on Orgin/EA

    This is why draconian DRM causes piracy. When DRM results in legitimate owners being prevented from playing their game, DRM pushes people toward piracy. DRM isn't a burden to pirates, it only hurts legitimate customers.

    Homefront - March 2011

    I just started Chapter 7 I think, and overall I'm not disappointed with the single player game, but I can't say I'm impressed either. First, to all you people blasting through the content, are you playing it on the easiest setting or something higher? I'm playing it on the second hardest mode...

    New to BC2, any pointers?

    First, thanks for the polite response. 99 times out of 100, the response I get to my concerns is "f-ing idiot moron retard noob. hardcore is for sissies and whiners, blah blah". To respectfully disagree however, I will say this. I play on hardcore servers almost exclusively. I am nearly...

    New to BC2, any pointers?

    I just don't understand why so many people like softcore. Nothing frustrates me more than playing on a softcore server. Get rid of the kill cam (whaaa! I don't know where I'm getting shot from!!!), the 3d spotting (hello wall hack!), and at least it's playable. I wish there was a way to...

    Camera Bag Recommendations

    Hmm, my SlingShot chest strap is adjustable. The main strap is a diagonal strap from upper right to lower left, with a keeper strap that comes up from the right side and snaps in the middle. Works great for me, and I am of slightly larger frame (*wink*)...

    Camera Bag Recommendations

    I have one almost exactly like the SlingShot 202 AW that madFive linked. I love it. It is the best camera bag I've ever owned. Well thought out, well designed, lightweight, comfortable. It has a built in rain cover also (I think most Lowepro bags do now days). I highly recommend the...

    Engineering Profession in WoW

    Biggest issue with Engineering is that 95% of what you can make with engineering can only be used by people with engineering skill, meaning there is very little market for our wares. Unlike every other profession, you won't be making very many things to sell to other players, and the few things...

    Age of Empires III for $0.10

    If I could just buy the game and download an installer, I'd be all over this. As it stands, you need a GFWL account, an XBOX Live account, and a Live account to get the game, as far as I can tell. Too much hassle for a game I'll probably play 5 times.

    Soft Drink Label Designs

    Left. Right bottle graphic is too busy for the small size. The small purple bubbles and swirly graphics are hard to distinguish. If you could increase the size of the details on the right, it would be better though.

    Bad Company 2

    re: Shotgun snipers 12G Slug perk and Magnum ammo perk make the shotguns sniper rifles. I did read somewhere though that the range was supposed to be reduced, so that should fix the problem. re: destroying M-COM I really hope they eventually do something about how easy it is to destroy the...

    27" iMac - what can I expect for gaming?

    You won't be gaming through Parallels unless you count minesweeper or solitaire. Parallels doesn't support DirectX (very well, I hear the new version is slightly better but still not up to gaming performance). Bootcamp isn't emulation, it's native execution. If you install Boot camp on your...

    WoW paladin just hit 80, what to do

    Healing is the most forgiving aspect of running basic instances, at least, so you should be okay there. A moderately geared healer is usually enough to pull off healing the early heroics. You might try running random heroics for triumph emblems. It's pretty easy to accumulate them quickly...

    WAR Hammer Online not dead yet, and major revisions happening

    The "Endless Free Trial" != "Free to Play". You can only progress through Tier 1, and there are limits on the account, but it isn't time limited. You can play in Tier 1 forever with those limitations if you want. This is designed to combat some of those other "2 week, 10 hour" trials being...

    is there more to borderlands??(possible spoilers)

    Also... NO ZOMBIES please. I bought Borderlands BECAUSE it isn't just another stupid zombie shooter. I could care less about zombies. I bought L4D and played it for about 20 minutes then got bored. Leave Borderlands zombie free! Long live the No Zombie Genre!

    I've had absolutely nothing but bad luck with anything MSI. Motherboards, video cards. I just don't go there. The difference between $160 and $210 for the mobo is inconsequential for me, and I have used Intel boards for my past 4 builds and I love them. I don't OC, so that isn't a problem to...
