Western Suffolk. Just spent over an hour shoveling over a foot of snow out of my driveway. The whiners can SHOVE IT, WE GOT OUR FREAKIN' BLIZZARD. A huge monstrous storm did exactly what they said, but it was 35 miles east of where they said. A storm that was probably over 300 miles long and 75 miles wide barely missed it's target. It was real, it happened, it's still happening in New England Tuesday afternoon. Landfall was a little off, that's it, not underwhelming, not a conspiracy, a little off the predicted model tract.

Been using Dolphin for 3 years on my Tab 2 and Tab 4, Chrome never worked right for me though it's my PC browser on desktop, latop and Netbook. Yes, I still use my Asus EEE on occasion. The new Dolphin home screen stays put as well, why does Google have to keep shuffling everything, are they big LMFAO fans?

Comment: Nintendo has never made a 1080p/60FPS game (Score 2) 338

"Many Nintendo games run in 1080p and 60 frames/second on the Wii U" What are these many you speak of? There's 1, Rayman, which BTW isn't even made by Nintendo, which is 1080p/60FPS on all the home consoles. Mario Kart 8 is 720p/59 output at 1080p. WW HD was Bayonetta 2 is 720p and SSB U isn't even out yet so who knows what it'll be. I played the Bayonetta 2 demo today and it looked freakin' awesome regardless.

So I can finally play Candy Crush on my PC ;-) Kidding aside, I wouldnt mind Angry Birds Epic on my PC, and wouldnt this make loads more money for companies like Gung Ho who were raking it in w/ Puzzle and Dragons and now can code once but have everyone with a PC spending money on their games? Seems like win-win to me, IF IF IF it works properly.

Stupid Microsoft. Imagine if they tried to buy Gamefreak in 1996 after Pokemon Red and Green had already come out. What has Gamefreak done since 1996? Well besides Diamond and Pearl. And Ruby and Sapphire. And X and Y. And Black and White. Boy I would hate to have owned Gamefreak and the Pokemon license for 18 years. Who wants to keep track of all that money for 18 years?

The Hasbro MY 3D Viewer has been out for about 3 years. No it doesn't connect to a PC bu it's wireless and 3D and works w/ your head motion, no LED required. Just add a bungie cord to strap it to your head for hands free motion.

Comment: Sandman or Endless or Death or Rose or Barbie? (Score 1) 35

No way no how can they make a Sandman movie covering 75 comics. so what storyline do they cover? Sandman's capture and subsequent freedom to start (Preludes and Nocturnes) would be the least interesting as all he does is whine. The Corinthian and his fellow serial killers (Doll's House) is worthy of it's own black comedy but would need to be done completely in black and white cartoon format like Sin City or Aeon Flux. A proper Death film could single handedly resurrect goth, but no way to do it properly. The witches in the apartment complex (Doll's House) are deserving of a faux documentary, but I see Depp as the Cuckcoo directed by Tim Burton and it's all turned into a bad Alice in Wonderland flick. I can't imagine any of the later storylines as a stand alone film. Rose has always been one of my favorites and I remember wanting to see a film about her staring Rose McGowan (who in her prime could also have played Death). Most important thing about a Sandman film, the least he's in it the better. A great character, but he's Rod Sterling in Twilight Zone.

"The purchase also oddly does not include the game controller" This was my first thought as well, but then I decided Amazon is marketing this the right way. Soccer moms will buy this, they are probably the #1 owners of Kindles. They will like the easy search option on the easy to use remote. If this were packaged w/ a gamepad it would scare away the soccer moms as a gaming device. By Christmas, after a few million soccer moms have picked this up, they will offer a "Gaming system" that includes the controller, maybe even for $99. This is just the intial sales run for Prime members, only about 100 games available. I don't think it even has Candy Crush Saga yet. No point trying to sell it to soccer moms w/o Candy Crush.
