    Characters & Environment are absolutely beautiful. The combat is really fun, no lock on targeting keeps you engaged and on your toes. Learning to dodge/duck/and weave your attacks is key. The classes are interesting, and the activities in the game keep you entertained. It does seem a little grindy, and the quests are kind of boring (mainly fed-ex & kill 10 of), i havent gotten into a dungeon or raid yet (i'm a alt-a-holic) so i'm holding judgement on those until i see if they are interesting or not. I have not gotten to deep into crafting or enchanting, but they do seem very similar to Aion's systems. If i had to make a one-liner about the game it would be "Aion & Monster Hunter had a love child" I ordered the physical collectors edition and will be subbing to the game after the 2 days i spent with it.
  2. last one i watched was the live-action paradise kiss, if we are talking about live-action adaptations. last actual live-action (as in not-anime & in theatre) movie i was was underworld awakening. Meh, it was alright, but sometimes they just take on the obligatory 3D f/x just to raise the ticket price.
  3. Mass Effect trilogy, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Skyrim. I vary rarely make it all they way through a game, usually get so busy with life & work that most games get replaced by a new one before i get a chance to finish. Those 3 i listed i made it all the way though, and refused to buy a new game until i completed them.
  4. Traded in my NSX for a Corvette i had custom ordered Which put me though a year of hell because it was a lemon, i was so fed up that i decided to stop driving sport cars and go for something a little less likely to have problems, and now its just a Honda Ridgeline. Everyone gives me hell for getting rid of the first two, but i love having something that i dont have to worry hitting a pothole, i can drive over a curb to get around a dumb ass, and i dont look like and idoit driving home from Home Depot with a bunch of shit sticking out of the hatch/side window
  5. My only gripe is that albert is a little too much of a bitch all the time, he needs to grow a pair a little more often. But then again, i guess him being 15-16yrs old, and spoiled can explain it. The wussie-boy protagonist thing just gets over used too much. But i would say this is a must watch, i'm pegging it at a 9/10, even with the bitching i've been doing about the art style & Albert.
  6. The patterns and colors of the clothes i like, and i agree on it saying something to their personalities, but when they move and walk around the colors/patterns do not move with them, and thats what bugs me, or maybe a better word would be "distracts" from the rest of the artwork in the scene. So far im on ep16, and the story is getting better and better. Gonna try to marathon it tonight, while i finish up some work on the computer.
  7. seems good so far, i'm 4 eps into it so far. the fabric on the clothing (how it seems to be on a background layer) is really bugging me for some reason. But it's holding my attention enough to keep watching.
  8. - Updated to new server settings - Streamlined posts to put connection settings behind spoiler tag to avoid "wall-o-text" - Added screenshots, download links, and website links - Added xchat-azure tutorial
  9. Utorrent (nice if your used to the windows version, but Mac version is quite behind in extra features) or Transmission (simple, lightweight in resources) For playback you can install a "Perian" codec pack into your system preferences pane and use QuicktimeX, you can download VLC (2.0+ supports the newer 10bit encodes), or download MPlayerX (a mac port/gui for mplayer, it also plays 10bit encodes) my personal combo is transmission (remote web monitoring & has "prevent computer from going to sleep" utorrent does not in the mac version) and MplayerX (has sequential play, automatically goto next episode in series, loads quicker and no font caching like vlc)
  10. Dope! Diggin Nana O's voice actor doing the character too.
  11. I just received my pre-order for the Blu-Ray re-release a few days ago of this one, its a GREAT series. Its a definite must-watch, enough so that i spent the $50 buying it.

  17. The external hard drive MUST be formatted in FAT32 for the PS3 to recognize it, and most externals come pre-formatted in NTFS (Windows) or HFS+ (Mac) If your on windows download a partition manager program to reformat it, or if your on a mac the built in Disk Utility program has the option for FAT32
  18. When you replace the hard drive in the PS3 it will partition, format, and restore a copy of the os to the hard drive for use. There is also a backup option in the system menu that will copy save data & media to an external drive, you then can restore it back to the new drive. here's a good step by step with pictures on how to swap out the drive to. http://www.gamespot.com/features/how-to-upgrade-your-playstation-3-hard-drive-6176090/
  19. Lucky! everywhere i have looked for Black Lagoon season1 or 2, its been $250 or more each, since the whole licensing thing is up in the air.
  20. A lot of the MKV stuff you will find there have h264 video and either mp3 or arc audio. I've used some MKVTools to pull the h264 video stream out separately, and the same for the arc audio track, and then re-mux them into a .m4v container so that i could throw them into iTunes, and sync them with my iphone4 or ipad1 it was fairly quick since you are not "re-encoding" them (and not degrading the quality), you are just changing the "container" that they are grouped together in, into something that iTunes will take. just use the regular size rips (DVD or 720 Blu-rays) since the screen is big enough.
  21. This, i really dig RDJr/Stark's sarcastic/jacka$$ moments in the trailer, i can just see him egging on the Hulk through the whole movie, lol.
  22. The PS3 used to be able to install a "Cell" based version of linux, one of the more popular was called YellowDog, that the "Install Other OS" option has been removed in a firmware update a while ago. Some of the rumors floating around was it was because the jailbreak/homebrew that came out for the PS3, and sony though that removing it could help curb the exploitation. You cannot install windows on it, but some people were able to install a VM on a linux install, and load Windows XP on the VM, but it ran so retiredly slow, that my original iPhone had a better chance of encoding video at a faster rate. If you want fast video encoding pickup any Sandybridge processor, and pair it with a "Z68" chipset motherboard, and you can take advantage of "QuickSync" which will allow some supported software to do h264 conversion on the graphics cores which it very quick, but the quality is not up to par of a regular Handbrake conversion on the main processor. With the opening up of the Cuda compiler for NVidia, i would like to see some ports of the x264 encoding libs/bins so that Handbrake could take advantage of the parallel processing, but i don't think we will see that anytime soon. I've see commercial encoding programs that take advantage of AMD or NVidia GPUs to do encoding, but they are only so-so in quality, and buggy. I tried it on my main PC rig, but it kept on crashing because my GTX580's are in SLI. Anyways, SHORT answer = NO
  23. Most Final Fantasy fans would probably laugh at me, but i started out with FF12, which i liked because it had a MMO feel to me without having to deal with the a$$hats that were in WoW. I then saw FF:Sprits Within, and FF:Advent Children, both which i loved. I'm into 3D modeling and just loved what they were able to do with those movies. I then purchased FF:Crisis Core, which was great! It was action-y without having to be too twitch. I purchased my PS3 when FF13 was first rumored/leaked. Despite what most people bitched about, i loved FF13. I love games that feel like you are playing through as part of the movie or story. "Its too linear, blah blah blah!", yeah and so is a book or movie. I'm hoping for a good story, with captivating characters, superb graphics, and a good soundtrack. Don't milk my wallet for tons of stupid DLC that should of been included in the game, and don't cripple the single player experience to shovel in a half baked multiplayer part because it's trendy to have everything be multiplayer/MMO.
