@lundy86_4: It's on Netflix yo

Ewww Netflix. You should know that Canada is the sucky hat of the USA. South America is the condom of the USA.

I don't use Netflix.

Lol I love Netflix, I don't even watch TV unless it's a NFL or NBA game on. Netflix just needs to take over everything.

Sadly, in my trials, it's sucked. I had a decent internet connection on my last try, but the quality was unbearable. I may try it again with my newer bandwidth though it may not alleviate it.

Plus Canada sucks, USA #1 for Netflix :(

You just gotta turn your brain off and let the funniness wash over you.

What you need to do with anything USA makes.

Their shows are more endearing than they are compelling.

My place smells of damp. So glad I'm moving in a month.

I'm liking Gex quite a bit. I somehow find Gex's stupid TV references endearing, and it's funny catching the occasional subtle adult joke in what's supposed to be an E rated game. It's a shame the camera is annoying; this could otherwise be on Crash Bandicoot and Spyro's level of quality of 3D platforming.

@clyde46, judging by your sig and avatar, is it safe to assume you bought a Mercedes?

I haven't bought it yet. I'm waiting till I change jobs in a month or two. Then I have to wait for it to be wait and delivered. I'm still on the fence about it.

Good God man, burn it with fire. I really want to know who the fuck green lit that car.

@clyde46: No bloody idea, but he/she is probably still out of a job today :P

Even the redesign looked like a van with windows....

Why is searching for a new car so dam hard...

@clyde46:

Simple: Way too many good options to ever be fully satisfied. You just gotta chose one and kinda go with it. It's kinda like Steam sales but if you could only pick one ever X years :P

I have a £30K budget. So many cars are in that range.

#969 Edited by clyde46 (46575 posts) -

@Desmonic said:

@clyde46: Yup :P All I can say is, if you can, get a testdrive on all the cars you're interested. At the very least you'll get a better idea of how they should perform on the road. Other than that, the rest is up to you and your personal taste.

Well, I can tell you what I thought of the BMW 118d that I test drove the other day. For a car that costs north of £25K the pedal box is tiny which meant I didn't feel in control. I hated the indicators and the gear stick shook for some reason. Hell if my 12 year old Ford with 86K miles on the clock doesn't shake the gear stick, why the fuck are BMW allowed to get away with that. The brakes also felt unresponsive as well, I had to really stamp on the pedal to get anything out of them which nearly caused me to get up close and personal with a hedge.

That said, the car was quiet with miniumal road and wind noise. It had lots of go, even in 6th car I could just plant my foot on the loud pedal and it would just go and go and go some more. The seats were lovely to sit in, the dash is well laid out and the steering was responsive. The ride was a bit soft for my liking but I didn't miss the clunks that my Ford makes when it goes over the potholes.

Comparing it to the Merc, the interiror was nicer, the buttons felt more robust where as the Merc felt a little cheap the futher down the car you go. The softer ride is in large contrast to the hard ride that the Merc has but I like the stiffness of the Merc, the BMW felt a little wallow'y.

I hated the auto box in the Merc as it was slow and indecisive but I hated the manual in the BMW so I'm going to ask for a manual Merc to test drive and I'm down to test drive a auto box BMW.

#971 Edited by clyde46 (46575 posts) -

@Desmonic: Only problem with test driving something is that they don't give you a lot of time with it. I'd like to see how it drives on a number of different roads. The reviews for the Merc are a little concerning to say the least.

toyota gt86?

toyota has earned its reputation.

@Desmonic said:

@clyde46: Yeah, it's always limited but it's better than nothing. Regardless, picking between a BMW or a Merc you shouldn't face many issues I suppose :P Both great brands for a reason.

#976 Posted by clyde46 (46575 posts) -

@Desmonic said:

@clyde46: That was still a pretty positive review of the car itself. It does seem to have some issues, and for 30K (or whatever it costs) I do agree that it should not :P

Well, I am coming from a Fiesta that's done 86K that clunks and rattles. The other car people are suggesting is the A3 but I think Audi's are so boring. Sure they are built tough and are uber reliable but I can't shake off that "IT boy" imagine. That are they are also more expensive.

#978 Posted by clyde46 (46575 posts) -

@Desmonic: I know, but it's a lot of cheddar to put down on something that I'm going to have for at least 5-8 years. I'm leaning more to the Merc now, I looked at some 1 series reviews and I'm not that impressed to be honest.

#980 Posted by Ballroompirate (23029 posts) -

Watched the new X-Men, acting was amazing from Fassbender, Jackman, McAvoy and Lawrence (Stewart and Mckellen basically were just their for the sake of it) but the story was pretty much shyt. It was better than the X-Men trilogy movies but honestly...those were pretty damn horrible to begin with so it's not hard to be better than those movies.

Hey DSS, this is a nice inbox you have here.

why is the ps3 so annoying?

so I was trying to download some things from my download history. It was mainly dlc, a lot of it. After... lets say 5 or 6 things. It would stop downloading them and give me an error.
i captured these with my elgato.
It would freeze at 0% like this http://i.imgur.com/ou6UIG5.png

So I would cancel after a minute or so and try again, I get this error. http://i.imgur.com/YxuXAZm.png
So I try my network and this happens http://i.imgur.com/JcH2PR0.png

The only fix is to reboot the ps3. The problem is that it happens again after 5 or 6 downloads x.x
Before you blame my internet, I'm gonna tell you no right now

Something I never knew but I should've... Slash (formerly of Guns and Roses) worked with Fergie on Beautiful Dangerous (a song I could've sworn I've heard before I found this out)... and it's really, REALLY bad.

You're a couple of year late with that brah :P

Like I said, I never knew it when I should have.

@getyeryayasout: This might delay our Borderlands 2 session as I can't move my PS3 upstairs until I get the all clear to go downstairs. I'll message you when I can.

And honestly, you would be better without even knowing about the existence of the song :P Unlucky you XD

Maybe, I mean I did say it was bad. Like seeing Paris Hilton in an Eminem music video (Just Lose It; which was a bad Eminem song :P).

Pshhh! What's a little Hepatitis? We got games to play! :P

If Tuesday's better, that's cool too. Good luck with the mess.

Mobile owners: Go play Monument Valley.

Think of it as the glorious, unnatural creation of a mutual circle jerk, between Journey, Echocrome and Fez, while awkward, lingering eye contact was made with SotC.

That description makes me think you don't know how sex, masturbation, or reproduction works.

@jg4xchamp: champ, where do babies come from? (It's hard to explain the game really. Just the best way I could think of.)
