  1. I figured there has to be a few anime and manga fans here. Personally, I cannot wait to go to Anime North (Toronto, ON) this year. Getting a hotel for the weekend and I plan to fill my suitcase with manga and other merch. before coming home. Currently watching: Attack on TitanCurrently (re-)reading: Natsume Book of Friends
  2. How many people have actually used this? Just curious. A friend of mine and I did a few races before realizing we needed to turn off penalties. My very first race I was break-checked and was hit from behind (and spun out) and it resulted in a penalty. Second race had some similar AI issues and after a few more we stopped. Anyway, I digress. Just curious to know if anyone did co-op online for career.

    Anime & Manga Thread Vol. 1

    I recently re-subscribed to Crunchyroll as I need more anime in my life. I also like English dubs since I stare at a computer all day and it's the last thing I want to do when I get home from work (reading subtitles that is). So...I've compiled all of the anime's listed in a thread over at CR into a spreadsheet that anyone can edit/modify. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1y-Be-_mvEtn6DH7GY_kaaIWj76wrqANIyMdyenDqhcw/edit *note 1: I live in Canada so I've tailored the list a bit to recognize when something wasn't available here. *note 2: I'm sure there are more titles on the site that we aren't aware of, but this is at least a good start to help organize everything.
  5. Quite the change, but a nice one 🙂
  6. I've seen this popping up on a lot of forums I frequent. People posting Kickstarters they have backed or found interesting enough to post about. @JustBigLee actually tweeted one yesterday that caught my attention, so I figure I'll start things off with that; TerraTech - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/payloadstudios/terratech-physics-based-vehicle-construction-and-c Build anything you can imagine! Heavy battle tanks? Yes. Fast scout vehicles? Yep. Flying carpet bombers? Why not?! Simply snap the dropped enemy blocks onto your creation by dragging and dropping, then get straight back into the fray! TerraTech lets you design, construct and organize a fleet of unique vehicles to lead to victory as you battle your way across the lawless frontiers of new alien worlds in a quest for glory and profit. In the distant future, Earth's natural resources have finally been depleted, and as an off-world prospector it's your job to travel to alien planets, gather up all the good stuff and blast it back home to get paid. The rarest resources will build the best kit so expand your turf and take out enemy bases to secure your position on each planet.

That's fine, just wondering how official these specs are. The minimum specs seem quite fair. I'm definitely feeling better about getting this for my laptop. Can @JustBigLee, @Loore, or @BenWalke comment on AMD APU support/optimization? I have an AMD A10-4600m + 7660G combo.

  9. Comic Book discussion Thread. Feel free to talk about any & everything comic book related. Please keep the discussions civil, regardless of which "side" you're on :) Currently reading: Ender's Game graphic novel. Going to pick up Rat Queens vol 1 and Serenity 2 & 3 next week I think. Wife just picked up Pretty Deadly 1-4. Might give that a read too.
  10. I was browsing the plugins section on the Vanilla forum website and came across a few I thought might be helpful/handy. Word Count (2.0.2)Word Count gives you a to-the-letter reading of how many characters you have left when composing posts and trimming your super-long posts is therefore finally as easy as it should be. Oh, and Word Count also counts the number of words in your post - hence the name of the plugin! VShare (1.1)This plugin adds ShareThis (http://sharethis.com) buttons to the bottom of each post. Based on digibomb ShareThis Plugin. Works on all versions of Vanilla.Puts the buttons on the comments and discussions. BetterNotifications (2.0.0) Implements vBulletin/PHPBB-style e-mail notifications for users who bookmark discussions. They will only receive one notification e-mail until they re-visit the discussion. Hot Threads (14.01.24) Hot Threads displays a list of the Hot Discussions, base on the amount of Views and Comments they received. Send PM (1.1) For users who are logged in, this will add a "Send PM" link in the meta row of each comment in a discussion.
  11. Probably not a popular topic on this forum but the new body style for the Cup series, plus new aero rules and softer tires have led to some pretty good racing this season.
  12. What was the last game you beat/completed? I just beat Tomb Raider last week. Very fun though some of the voice-acting was rough at times.

    Life long dream. Wife and I haven't been on a vacation since 2011 (when I coincidentally visited Codemasters' Leamington Spa office). Can't wait to go. Trying to figure out what to do on Halloween as it's my wife's birthday.

    Sad to say I haven't watched much anime in the past few weeks. Finally got a car so now I drive to work. Only takes about 35 minutes in the morning and about an hour in the afternoon, as opposed to 1.5 hours EACH WAY via transit before. As a result, I don't watching anything on my commute now...
