Who here thinks Apple winning over a billion dollars in damages for Samsung violating, amongst others, a patent saying Apple own the right to a rectangular device with rounded corners is a good thing for the telecommunication industry going forward. . .
Apple monopoly here we come. . .

So. . . yeah Heroes of
Diablo Ruin. . . I picked it up today. . .
BLANTANT DIABLO CLONE. . . I mean this is so damn blantant, bar some minor tweak here and there the game plays and looks almost identical to Blizzard's latest offering, hell for the most part I think the bloody classes are near the same too (though too be fair these same class archtypes are prevelent in most RPG's of this kind) but the best part was I chose the gunslinger class (I tend to play long range types in games like this) then proceeded in awe to create aethetically the EXACT SAME CHARACTER I USE IN DIABLO. He has a hood and all, I looked at in and I had to put the 3DS down temporarily because I was laughing too hard.
However I must admit from what I've played thus far it isn't too bad, I'm questioning some of the button inputs (the button you use to select options doubles as a mana wasting special attack, which I have triggered by accident a few times since I always assume the affirmative option would also be the default attack) I haven't given the multiplayer a whirl yet since no-one I know has the game yet and I'm not too sure how global online will go. . .
If you had fun with Diablo. . . Heroes of Ruin might be able to give you your fix while you're in transit and such. . . Now excuse me while I go back to laughing.

Really. . . can someone please explain to me why Nintendo decided it would be a good idea to announce this on a Nintendo Direct broadcast and not two weeks ago at E3 when. . . you know. . .
THE WHOLE GAMING WORLD HAD IT'S EYES ON YOU
Seriously, I watched this with a friend of mine who is a massive Nintendo fanboy and he said that this 30 minute presentation was so much better than the 90 odd minute presentation at E3. . . hell I'm not the biggest Nintendo fan and I found things in this presentation that made me want to pre-order in anticipation, which is more than i can say about their E3 conference.
But, that's against the point, and probably a topic for another. . . topic. Nintendo 3DS XL, what does everyone think. . . I'm going to hold out until I get to see it in person, if the screen is actually better quality than the normal 3DS I might just buy one. . .

Well I bought this the moment it appeared on PSN so I could have a decent play with it. A vast improvement over the predecessor in nearly every aspect, there are some slight issues here and there (momentum regarding the spin dash is one) but they don't adversely effect the game too much in my opinion. All the levels are fun in one way or another and the difficulty curve increases are a decent pace as you go through. Bosses are surprisingly fun after the chore of the bosses in Episode 1, all are original (bar the ones that are meant to be homages to earlier fights) and keep you on your toes, the final boss is absolutely brilliant and something I've actually come to enjoy fighting, something I haven't been able to say about a final boss in a Sonic game since Sonic and Knuckles.
I will say one thing though, the guy who designed the special stages can go **** themselves. . . Seriously, this game, despite essentially being a love letter to longtime fans of the series, (who still complained, I don't know why they bother) this game is primarily going to be picked up by kids, and the special stages, especially the last two brought me to a frenzied rage. The only good thing is the game gives you the ability to restart special stages, not sure if it was intentional or an oversight but i sure as hell abused the hell out of it. I think I restarted the final special stage about 50-60 times, and in the end I completed it with 1 goddamn ring to spare. . . through 60 tries I memorised the pattern of this goddamn special stage so I could probably do it blindfolded and I still just passed it. Not that it matter though because apparently Super Sonic is broken and actually is less useful than Normal Sonic. . .
All in all, bar the rage inducing special stages I thoroughly enjoyed this game.

Okay, I found this game due to some people on another board I frequent, they were playing it, I joined in and much fun was had.
The game is called Words That Followhttp://www.wordsthatfollow.com/
What you do is you either create or join a room (you can password protect rooms) when people have joined a picture will appear on the screen, the aim of the game is to make a funny caption relating to said image within the allotted time limit (min 30 seconds, max 60 seconds) once the time runs out everyones captions will appear on screen (bar your own, so you can't vote for yourself) then you vote for the caption you think is funniest, once all the votes are in, the winner of the round is the one that recieves the most votes.
Later rounds are worth double points and the final round has a random theme or requirement and triple points, winner the is person with the most points after 6/7 rounds. (can't remember)
I'm not sure if this'll work yet since this forum hasn't been around for very long, and memories of the previous board are vague, so we don't have any meta-meme's which could be utilised like I had with the other forum (rasslin, many TNA jokes were made) but I still think'll be fun

You know what. . . I'm going to make an assumption here based on current retail trends and say I am the only person on this forum at the moment that owns a Playstation Vita.
Once again having learnt nothing from buying the 3DS at launch, I went out and bought the PS Vita the day it went on sale.
Now, the console is awesome in every concievable way, it does what it does brilliantly. It's launch line up was heads and shoulders better than the 3DS pitiful launch line up and from what I've seen people have been generally positive in reviewing it. . .
Too bad that after the launch line up the stream of new games basically went dead. . . If you want people to buy your shiny new console Sony you need to cater to it for more than one goddamn month. . .

So I recently (and by that I mean yesterday) went out and bought myself an ultrabook.
the things isn't the best modle available by any stretch of the imagination, but for what I need it for it'll more than suffice.
I bought an Asus Zenbook. If anything the thing is damn nice, wager it looks nicer than a Macbook Air
It's a shame for all the bloatware though. . .

Well it's good to be back, and I must admit the layout of the forum looks nicer than the previous one. However I just had an issue regarding the registration of an account. When you register after you've inputted your desired username and it checks to see whether that username is available, if it is the box goes completely white. I'm not sure if this a feature added or just a problem with Firefox or the site, but if you misspell something and the box goes white i'm not sure if you're able to actually correct it. The same situation also applies to Passwords, which is even worse since you need to type it in twice and if you stuff it up once I'm not sure if you'd need to do the entire registrational all over again.
A suggestion I'd like to make is to make the massive banner up the top of the forum into a clickable object to take you back to the front page of the forum, then I realised there is a clickable link at the top right part of the image called logo which does so, so I'm assuming you have the intension to do this regardless.
