[QUOTE="Dracula68"]So the voices for Lego BM2 are mostly forgettable and it is understandable as so many different actors/actresses played these characters alone the way so they seemed to have gone mainly with generic run-of-the-mill voices. Whoever voices the Joker has done an excellent job of capturing him and the only voice in the game I recognize is Lex Luthor(can't remember his name but I can see his face). I do love this open world feel to the game though. That said I watched a clip of Lego LOTR and those voices seem to be the real actors.

I played a bit of Lego Star Wars 3 last night, in kind of a Lego mood lately.

Maybe I should join this whole Lego thing with you guys and start playing Lego Batman 1 today.

Why do I always work late when it's going to rain?! :(. Granted it's nice to have a little bit of rain after this ridiculously hot weather, but not when I'm commuting home at 10:30 at night.

Rain or a cool day would be better instead of what I'm getting now. I had to be outside today, taking care of errands, and it was about close to 100 degrees in NH, about 97 degrees. Scorching!

It's about 35C here but feels like 40C, which is about 117F lol.

You both are lucky. I have the air condition on in my apartment for the entire night ahead. I hope it cools down eventually. My kind of day is a half cold-/half warm with a cool breeze thrown into the mix.

Okay, so I guess we're done with that question then, huh?

What are your thoughts on the next-gen demos that we've been seeing recently (Agni's Philosophy / Unreal Engine 4)? And how do you think it's going to affect the current consoles?

c_rake

I've only watched the Square Enix one, and I'm very skeptical. They can say it's running in real-time all they want, but until I see it running on actual hardware in an actual game, I'll remain doubtful of its validity. I'm sure games will look like that one day, but I don't think it'll be anytime soon.

You should really watch the Unreal Engine 4 demo, there's an entire article about how it's all thanks to the new NVIDIA GTX680.

Also, I kind of agree with you, it all looks very promising, but real-time rendering seems a bit far-fetched, however, only as far as a year or two when the next gen consoles are out.

P.S. before Agni's Philosophy, there was this video, give it a look.

Xenogears is still fun and Ninja Gaiden Sigma should be here soon.

Hoo boy. Gonna be some partying for the next few days here on the beaches. Heat win. Felt bad for Kevin Durant, though. Great player and great guy all around.

Whether people love him or hate him, I'm glad that LeBron finally realized his dream of an NBA title. So happy in that regard. But I can already imagine the people of Cleveland being very mad about it...

I got rain coming today so hopefully the high 90's will be gone tomorrow morning. People at school graduations were passing out left and right last night.

Do you know today is the first day I refused to go to any of my sport sites? I want this **** to hurry and die down. He ****ed himself with 2 things---that dumbass show to announce he was going to South Beach and those ****ing ridiculous sore-loser comments after last years finals.

Wow. That's insane!

Today, though, I hear that rain is happening sometime in the afternoon, which I find to be very welcoming at this point!

Just so you both know, I didn't care much for that drama at all. More than likely because I'm not into sports. I'm just happy that someone, through their hard work, was able to realize their dream, no matter what team they worked for. :)

#219 Posted by Metamania (12010 posts) -

Gotta love it when your trade-in to Amazon.com is finally accepted and processed. I was given a lot of store credit to use. I immediately used it to order the entire Linkin Park discography, pre-ordered the new album, also pre-ordered the new Offspring album, and got their last new album too. Gonna be a long while...

He was actually loved at one time but after those 2 things way more people despise him now and no matter how many titles he wins that will likely never change. Even if he opts out in 2 years and goes back to Cleveland.

We don't want him back in Cleveland even with that comment he said about maybe playing for Cavs again. We moved on from him.

Yeah same here but they seemed to put up less of a fight than either Indiana and Boston. Seems like they were happy to just get there.

seemed like Harden played a lot better against the Lakers, his shooting was really off against Miami.

Because the guy most people love to hate--me included--finally won last night.

Edit: I just had my local news on and they had a James clip. "I did it the right way" The **** you did. You see Magic, Bird, Jordan, Kobe, etc leaving the team they started with to sign up with 2 other stars to get a championship? **** no so you did not do it the right ****ing way. This is why I was trying to avoid sports web sites.

Oh I was referring to the movie aka Netflix queue :P though I do like me some catoon movie type games. That came out June 4th and availability is low at the moment.

I think I'm gonna try out this Lego Batman 2 demo, see if it's any good. Hell, maybe I'll just skip the first game and play the second one instead of if it turns out to be better. :P

A sports poll on Gamespot is completely meaningless. People here love to hate, period. Kobe is a "hated" athlete. Tom Brady is a "hated" athlete. Alex Rodriguez is a "hated" athlete. People hate success. And complaining about free agency is just a sign people are old. Sports are a business.

So anyway, I just started playing Enslaved for the first time, on Hard difficulty. So far, it definitely does reminds me of Majin very much. Very easy to get into and so far, I'm not having much problem. But I'm sure the difficulty will be ramped up as I go.
