I still don't understand how people entertain the idea of a Half Life movie. Half Life 2's story, if I may be blunt, is rather paper thin and hardly enough to form the basis of a film. Half Life 2's (and I suppose by extension the original) true and lasting success lies in its world building and...
Thanks Krynn, I was considering some Lenovo models. Pretty hard to find many Thinkpads in Australia that aren't stupidly expensive. On a lark I found this Samsung model NP355V5C for $500.
The specs for it are:
Radeon 7670m 1GB
AMD A6-4400m 2.7gHz
4gb RAM (might get another four for $30)

I'm studying and potentially living in Japan for the next year or so. I need a laptop to assist me in this endeavour. The issue is I may be moving every six months or so, so a desktop doesn't seem viable unless reselling is a thing.
Wake up to see the usual suspects for game announcements from their conference. And yet, for some reason I'm stupidly excited. I swear a year ago I had written off the 3DS and said I'd never buy a new handheld but damn if I don't want the new Pokemon, Monster Hunter and christ, the idea of Super...

I personally thought it was one of their best invented scenes, considering
Decent episode, but one thing annoyed me -
Oh well, I'm of the opinion they've completely botched the entire Night's Watch strand, beginning with casting wimpy dough boy Harrington as Jon Snow.
Dark Souls is adept at evoking many negative emotions available in the human spectrum, sometimes to an extreme extent. It is taxing, brutal, lonely, frustrating and often times rewarding. It's also deeply sad, with a world that communicates anguish without having it shoved in your face with...
This is perfect timing for me, I just concurrently watched The Wire and Breaking Bad from start to finish (just have to wait on that second half of season 5 for the latter).
As much as it pains me to say it, and trust me I was in denial for so long, but The Wire has to be the greatest thing I...
