Quick question: is Gotham any good?
For a pilot, it wasn't bad. It felt a little bit forced and disjointed from time-to-time, but other than that I enjoyed it and I'm definitely looking forward to more.

Re: Good 2.1 computer speakers

I have the M-Audio AV 40s, and have loved them. However, they don't have a subwoofer, but they're on Amazon for $119 w/Prime shipping (currently on back order). You can also pay $149.99+shipping if you don't want to wait Amazon to restock their supplies. You can always add a subwoofer later, but I'v...

Re: Upgrade recommendations

I know that my video card is definitely the easiest thing to upgrade, and the one thing that will give me immediate, noticeable results. I wasn't sure though, if my current motherboard and/or PSU limits my options. One of the things that I forgot to mention earlier, i.e. one of my nitpicks, is my mo...

Upgrade recommendations

I'm currently in the market to upgrade my current setup, but I haven't really been paying attention to the scene recently, so I'm not sure what my options are. I really don't have a lot of problems with my current setup, other than a few nitpicks here and there. I also, don't want to shell out the m...

Re: Guardians of the Galaxy!

I saw it and loved it. Whether or not it's my favorite MCU movie to date is yet to be seen. It will probably take a second viewing to make up my mind, but as it stands, it's standing toe-to-toe with The Avengers and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Re: New Android Flagship

Will it run on Verizon Wireless (who still boycotts the Nexus phones)? That's a negative, Ghostrider, and it's a damn shame. It doesn't support the 3G CDMA that Verizon uses and it only has LTE bands 4/7/17/38/40. While Verizon does use band 4, their LTE workhorse is band 13. The phone also lacks a...

If you're a Verizon customer, like myself, then you're probably über pissed (but not at all surprised) that the Nexus 5 isn't available on Verizon. Have you considered the Moto X? It's a fantastic piece of hardware, despite running "mid-tier" specs ( see my rant here ), and will be droppin...

Re: Verizon's Moto X getting 4.4 before other carriers

True, but Verizon is notorious for delayed updates due to "thorough testing to ensure the stability of" their network. Hell, there's no mention of the Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, or Droid Mini getting the update yet, and they're 99% identical to the Moto X.

There's also not an SD card slot, but for the price, it's really hard to beat. I personally have the orig...
