    • PAX East 2016

      3 years ago

      MadCatKaine

      Well I made it to Pax East again. It was amazing to see the RT trade show booth so large and to see how things have merged them into a media company. Sadly, I did not get into Boston in time to see their panel on Friday. I enjoyed the panels I attended on board game development and publishing, my new interest. Very useful talks. People are all so incredibly friendly at this event. Lots of new indie video games and new board game areas this year. I bought a Fallout Lucky bobble head and a Nuka cola T shirt from Bethesda. Boy the place was mobbed. it has really taken off since my first visit several years ago.


      Hope you are all well.

      MadCatKaine

      this year than last year. 54 today and I went for a ride in a 1939 MG-TA today. It looks like this one, but this is not the car. 39 MG So reminded me of this book The Red Car. Anyway, its just a short hop until the warmer weather hits and its Top Down time. Cant wait. How about you all, ready for some Summer?

      Anyone else think that the media hype for any type of weather event is getting to be too much? Look out worse solar event ever is coming.

    • On the Xbox One Upgrade trail again

      3 years ago

      MadCatKaine

      So, getting ready for Thanksgiving when I will have some free time to finish setting up the old Xbox one. So far I have been on the upgrade trail. Put in a game disk, install and download GB of data for hours and hours. Start again, wait more ours, more GB then reinsert first game, upgrade and install again. I might be finished by Thursday but then again the servers will be swamped. Still the Box is gorgeous in HD. Fallout 4 start Thanksgiving. tried Black Ops 3 and liked it so far, Halo 5 is kind of mey but maybe in multiplier when my twins get home. No experience in PvP yet in either game. Found out my game stuff did not follow me from Xbox 360 to One in Titanfall, but its still fun and getting the achievements again is cool. Just bought the Star Wars Battlefront thing. Of to install and upgrade again for hours. Plus, got an Xbox rated 2 Terabyte drive only to have the system not see it. Off to the upgrade trail again. "sigh"

      I have installed and setup my Fallout 4. No time to play until Thanksgiving, but a marathon will begin then,.

      Played the first 2 campaign items in Black OPS III and Halo 5. Comments so far are the graphics are gorgeous in both games. Black OPS III has wall running like in Titanlfall, which is cool and simulation games which are also play like Titanfall. Some borrowed idea I believe. Halo 5 is interesting A total new look and feel of game play. Will have to try multiplayer later in both games but for now I am at least glad I purchased all three games for the new Xbox One.

      More later.



    • Were out though Fallout 4 copy

      MadCatKaine

      Amazon has informed me that my Fallout 4 Pip boy addition was late shipping and here is $10 for my pain and suffering. Clearly they do not understand my desire to have my game in hand. Just set up the new xBox one in anticipation. Play appropriate song lyrics here.

      My father has been gone from this realm for 3 weeks today. Still feel like I have a hole in my heart and I am pretty blue. Grief is weird.

      My son's final push to raise money for his Documentary about how woman are treated in gaming and nerd culture!

      If you have a chance and a spare $5 or $10 you can spare, please consider donating to my son's campaign. He is a second year film student at LMU and I believe his topic is relevant tot he community here and it will be a really interesting film. I thank you for considering this.

      Nah, I don't think Burnie had a particularly bad day, this was more my observations of various panels from PAX, not all of which were Rooster Teeth; I just sort of compiled various *facepalm* moments from the weekend. However, during one RT Q&A, someone did tell Burnie that he was the closest thing they had to a director. I'm sure he didn't mean it to sound like it came out.. lol

      Your so right,, it is inconceivable, yet it is true you need to pass a test to drive a car, and for other items, but not to reduce children. Sadly, not everyone see's having a child as a blessing, like you do. children are a value and a joy for life.

      I just... I mean, when you read the article... the child was getting severely beaten for playing with the wrong toys!! That's what it was! The wrong fucking toys! I can't even conceive of a parent being so cruel, so filled with hatred, as to beat their child for playing with the wrong toys!

      Hello, fellow RvBCA member!

      It's June already (holy crap!), so we are gearing up for another Comic-con weekend meetup.

      We are planning something along the lines of a bonfire, so EVERYONE can come, regardless of whether or not you were lucky enough to snag a Con badge before the website crashed for the 30th time. smiley0.gif

      If you are interested in attending a RvB meetup in San Diego and meeting your lovely rooster teeth friends, come to the RvBCA group and check out the latest news!

      Thanks and hopefully we'll see you in July!

      I did just that, and it is supposed to help. But by the time I got home and took the entire phone apart, it was too late. You could see the corrosion on the important bits. RIP celly.

      Oh I already know that. She's dumb as a rock about most all things. My frustration isn't with the fact that she's losing at science (well some of it is), but it's the fact that so many morons are going to believe her because she's on TV running her stupid mouth off. Nuclear power already has the combined ignorantly-acquired stigma of the Cold War and Chernobyl that it doesn't need people who have no idea how it works talking about it.

      Yes, that was the place I visited. it was years ago and I stayed at the hotel across the street from the theater. I found Davis to be one of the nicest places I visited in California. Kathmandu Kitchen was the restaurant I ate at on the several business trips I made to the area. Glad it still exists.

    • phoenix229

      8 years ago

      Kathmandu Kitchen is still downtown, down the street from the G Street Theater. I have never been there myself, even after doing my undergrad at UCD. My favorite was Raja's Indian Cuisine right off campus; buffet-style for cheap, good food and the owner was always super nice.

      There are a lot of games that come close to the list. Donkey Kong would be one of them. I have not played it on the Wii though. I have to admit that Gears is dropping on the list the more time goes along. I really like it when they come out but then I lose interest. I doubt it will have staying power.
