    Borderlands the PreSequel has landed

    Pretty much same UI and feel as Borderlands 2 but with a lot more talking between your character and the NPCs during adventuring. Also the first battles against the creatures on the moon seem twitchier fighting style than previous but that may just be first impressions. Only played through the...

    I miss level grinding

    I know we have discussed this before here on Video Gaming but Dead Island really made me miss level grinding. Level grinding is where a game is somewhat but not completely linear and each area has pretty fixed enemy levels so you have to gain levels in order to explore more of the map and...

    DSLR for stills / video or separate DSLR and camcorder?

    I think it is time to finally upgrade my second generation Canon D60 DSLR (the original one). I also have a older Sanyo Xacti 2000(?) 1080/60p HD camcorder that isn't bad but is probably pretty obsolete as well and the actual resolution is of the video is well below 1080p. I am a parent of two...

    Anyone else have a family with almost zero interest in their HT?

    We have a really nice HT setup. While it isn't anything to look at with the lights on as it is in the unfinished part of the basement, with the lights off it is rather nice. Sony 95ES projecting up to 10.5' wide with 7.1 speakers and over 500 movies to choose from. My two kids, both teens have...

    Political Animals on USA Network

    Wow. I had no idea that the show was going to be a real world "what-if" scenario of if Hillary Clinton had divorced Bill after losing the primary and then ran for office against Obama after the first term. I have no idea if the real people they represent feel that way but I as a citizen sure...

    3D Unexpected viewing result from someone now able to view 3D movies in HT

    I now have the ability to view 3D movies in my home theater with the purchase of a Sony VW95ES projector recently. I had 3 3D movies I had purchased previously, Tron Legacy, Legends of the Guardians, and Drive Angry ($12 for 3D version so I had to buy it). I have views on how a 3D movie should...

    They don't make R-rated movies like they did in the '80s

    I have been rewatching a bunch of '80s R-rated movies I had seen in my youth at the theater or on HBO and they really don't make them like they used to. Specifically profanity and naked/nude shots. Profanity was in constant use during most '80s action movies and comedies but it seems like...

    Need help recording TV shows

    The setup: We have simple extended analog cable ($40 per month) that my TV and DVD/VCR combo player can decode with no STB. I normally just set up the timer on the VCR to record during the week the few shows I watch. Well this past weekend we had a very powerful thunderstorm come through...

    Bourne Ultimatum issue on A2

    I was checking my Bourne Ultimatum HD-DVD Xmas present and found that it gets an error in the later chapters on my Toshiba A2. It is like it cannot read the 2nd layer but everything before it works just fine. I have not upgraded the ROM since I bought the A2 in July with the thinking that if it...

    No sound out of SPDIF on A2

    I just got a Toshiba A2 and the freaking thing won't output ANY sound out of SPDIF, bitstream or PCM. I have tried DVD, HD-DVD (The Mummy) and a CD but my Yamaha RXV-2095 that does PCM, DD and DTS shows nothing coming from the SPDIF. The only sound is out of the 2-ch analog. I do not have HDMI...
