    Hah, I remember xlink kai...

    Edited:

    Yesterday I bought Trials Evolution for the 360, and played for 4 hours. I don't think I've ever played that much on it in a single session before, because I haven'played it too much, really. I still wonder how much life it has left in it...
    I got it yesterday too but it keeps freezing. This also happened with NBA 2k12 when I installed it on my HDD. And my downloadable copy of Rock Band 3 also doesn't work.
    Unpleasant implications.

    I can either get it repaired for roughly 70 euros and lose it for a few days or buy a new 250 gigs HDD for 72 euros (I currently have a 60 gig).
    Gee, that's hard.

    One guy who once DDoS-ed the server where he was an admin and didn't help the owner after it went down because no money, now got a new e-mail at AOL because it is better than hotmail and gmail.


    Seriously, going from Hotmail and Gmail to AOL is pretty dumb IMO.

    My netbook just had a seizure.

    The screen was absolutely spazzing out like the GPU was vomiting.
    Not like there's anything I can do if it DOES crap out on me... The warranty is out. vv

    edut:
    Oh wait, it's still in warranty.
    ... It's just mom's too stubborn to send anything in to get it fixed.
    "Mom, mom! My HP laptop is getting too hot, I think it's broken... Can we send it in?"
    "Later we will."
    Repeat that for several months until the warranty ran out. :l

    I was watching Groundhog Day (Good movie, if you haven't watched it) on Netflix and noticed what appeared to be a fleck of dirt on new monitor. I tried wiping it off, though I think it's a dead pixel:



    It's annoying, though I doubt Dell is going to send me a replacement since their warranty only covers "Bright" defective pixels. Oh well.

    I'm considering getting a PS3 actually because it's on sale. I'll pick up a used copy of Red Dead Redemption.

    Seriously, I'm pissed that it isn't going to be out for PC.

    This makes no sense! They just made a gift to the Dead Pixel God, this shouldn't happen.

    I removed the old thermal paste when I was cleaning my computer today, and swapping in some Ceramique 2 by Arctic Silver.

    I have never made such a mess with any thermal compound, but SpeedFan claims the CPU to be at 43c, so that's good enough for me.
    At least I have an even layer of the stuff on, and the massive heat sink is attached tightly.

    Didn't we have those exact same rumors last year?
    Seriously, if I had a single wish, it'd be one that made people stop taking rumors for facts all the fucking time.

    No?

    The rumors last year was that it was in the works, not that it was going to be announced.

    From what I can remember.

    Doesn't matter, they still count as false until it's officially announced.

    I dunno, the current rumors seem much more realistic than earlier ones. And the timing seems right, especially if the Wii U specs are correct.

    My money's on PS4/Xbox III being announced this year, probably at E3, for release by holiday 2013.

    Next-gen consoles won't matter, they won't have Diablo 3 so why the fuck would you want one of them.
    If you can't play Diablo 3 on it, it's not meant for gaming.

    It's at least equally stupid to assume they're true.

    I needed something that's in Danish translated, and Google Translate wasn't making any sense.
    So I contact the only Danish dude I know, and he just happens to be blazed like fuck.

    The results are fairly correct, but the response times are worse than dial-up.

    edit:

    I know I said in a year the new consoles will be out which was an (un)educated guess based off rumors and such.

    I was making an assumption, not stating a fact.

    Fuck my luck. My father recently bought for my brother and me a new (horribly glossy) hp (already mentioned in this thread, i3 2330m, 4 GB of RAM, Radeon 7450, 500 GB). I just found at the same price a Samsung with an i5 2450m, 6 GB of RAM, Geforce 540M and 1 TB. Oh, and the screen isn't a glossy one.

    eh

    their high-end gpu is now slightly cheaper than Nvidia's highest mid-range card which either matches it or ever so slightly beats it

    you're better off buying the Nvidia card for ~$20 for the more than often better driver support (not every diver is perfect on either side but AMD seems to have more issues)
