The grocery store recently had the Lay's Cheesy Garlic Bread and Lay's Chicken and Waffles on sale, so I went ahead and picked them up.  The Garlic Bread one was just okay.  Not bad, but not something I would ever crave.  The Chicken and Waffles one remains unopened.

 

Speaking of which, has anyone been to a Chicken and Waffles restaurant before?  I haven't, just wondering how good it is.

Thanks to Tiphireth for the help and modium for the pics.

The garlic bread chips tasted like pure grease to me.  The chicken and waffle ones are good, though a little on the sweet side.

What's the OTT thinking about that Steam controller?

It looks terrible, but the impressions I read were positive. Someone mentioned that the pads were like dual trackballs.

It looks different, but it seems like it have more functionality and mapping. 

I'd still much rather see a Steam Handheld. I don't think some of those indie games will translate will to the big screen (FTL, Super Meat Boy, Hotline, Miami).

 

I bought a few games during the last Steam sale. (My first Steam Purchases EVER!) But I still haven't barely played them. It just isn't comfortable sitting at a table playing on a lap top as opposed to laying down on the couch with a controller.

Is that a good thing? I never really like trackballs.

They don't do much for me, but a lot of people like them. I would buy one if I used the OS and wanted to play a FPS.

I finally got my new computer together. I had problems with my first build. I kept getting constant device connect/disconnects. It was driving me crazy and I couldn't isolate it. I suspected one of two things. Defective motherboard or bad/incompatible power supply.

 

So it cost me a little extra because I got a new board and power supply, but now it works perfectly.

 

Haswell i5-4670k - $200

8 GB DDR3 1600 Ram - $60

Asrock Z87 Extreme6 Board - $140

Corsair H50 Water Cooler - $50

Rosewill Blackhawk Case - $60

GTX 760 - $250 w/ Splinter Cell Blacklist

Blu-Ray RW - $70

Intel 802.11 AC wireless receiver - $45

XFX 850 Watt Power Supply - $135

500 GB SSD - $320

2 TB Hard Drive - $100

 

My goal without SSD was to be around $1000. So I'm a little over.

 

One thing I will say, 802.11 AC is legit. I'm connected wirelessly and I'm getting the full 50 MBps from my cable modem across the room. I would recommend an 802.11 Ac router and wireless connector. At first I was worried the 802.11Ac wasn't going to be that big of an improvement. But it's waaaay better then wireless-N.

Are SSDs coming down in price at all?  It looks like mine is starting to shit the bed (that's what I get for buying a low-end one) and I'm looking to upgrade once I get a job again.  Probably go at least 128GB this time.

Yeah. 256 GB are starting to get closer to 125. Hoping they hit 100 by BF.

Sweet.  If I make this full time position I'll make an absurd amount of money so I'll finally be able to put some more cash into my rig (been ~2-3 years since I built it).

Since I'm recording both breaking bad and another show I can't watch football. So I pulled it up on NBC.com. I'm impressed with the stream quality.

 

They also have a sweet PiP with sideline and other video.

NBC really does it right with that. I wish Sunday Ticket Max worked as well as the NBC feed did.

The Steam controller is whacky, but I'd like to try it. I'm worried about the price. Steam Machines are interesting. I would rather get a non-Windows gaming machine so that's good, but again I'm worried about the price. Should be cheaper than a Windows box, but I'm guessing it's still going to be a lot more than a console. Also it all depends on if they can convince game developers to develop for it. The streaming stuff doesn't interest me much, since I don't have a gaming PC to begin with.

I forgot to cancel my Sunday Ticket package and then ended up getting this year's for free. (Well, I did make one payment on it, which prompted me to call and try to cancel.)

 

Still haven't watched one game all this season though. I spent last Sunday watching Lego Friends videos and quickly checking the scores with Google News.

 

Didn't even think of trying to watch. Doubt my internet could handle that though, seeing as how Amazon Instant Video and Youtube were both running at the same time on separate devices.

I'm Still Here was legit. Joaquin Phoenix has real street cred in the rap game.

PSA: If you have a retail PC copy of BioShock 2 it now registers into Steam and comes with all the DLC free.  Also GFWL has been yanked from it and it now contains Steam achievements and full controller support.

Thanks for letting me know. The DLC for that game is the best mang.

Why did Brak delete his rant about Wombat, Jews, and Hobby Lobby?

maybe a glass of wine, then to choose between the ds, vita, or mass effect 3.
it's a rough life.

I was kind of high when it was still up and I spent way too long trying to figure out what the fuck you were talking about.  Shit was cryptic.
