I would assume he eats them with ketchup, just like any other protein...

Iron is essential for a healthy body and we do automatically pass any extra. I say good plan. Fully support this.

FIFA is the best sports video game ever invented.  Soccer is a sport that lends itself to ease of access and the developers at EA have absolutely nailed it with FIFA.

Really enjoy that one too.

You've gone all in! FIFA, the game, is a great entry point to the real sport. I think that's why it's gained some momentum locally, actually. They make a very immersive game

I own two for personal pleasure at home and work. Not really for gaming.

I've never played Mass Effect but Andromeda looks sick.

Interested in Horizon: Zero Dawn, too...but waiting for reviews.

Maybe time for a new graphics card. The budget is around $230. I'm leaning pretty heavily towards the EVGA 1060 6GB. Pretty much only play in 1080p at this point

Got an invite for the Gwent closed beta a couple days ago. My XBone was being difficult and wouldn't download the queued things so I haven't had a chance to try it yet. Am hoping that it's not just another pay to win game like Hearthstone, but most likely it will be.

Thinking of picking up a Raspberry Pi and making an arcade setup. Anyone used on?

No but the idea appeals to me.  Let me know how it goes if you bite.

Doing it when I get some free time. HDMI port built-in, so it's possible. At $10 a pop, why not?

I can't play games as much as I used to, but a few days ago for the first time in a couple years I fired up College Hoops 2k8. 2k8 may be the best game ever but it may officially be out of date. Still has the old 3 point line, long shot clock, the lane is absolutely packed, graphics becoming painful. I can't any more. I broke down and ordered NCAA Basketball 10 today. I'll regret it in a few hours but with the extended 3 point line and better graphics it'll be a bit closer to today. I'd complain about conferences but most days any more I can't remember what schools are in which conference with all the realignment.

By the end of the NCAA Football games I had stopped being a yearly purchaser for them or any other games but I feel bad for the kids in school who can't buy up to date college games and instead have to go outside and be social with friends.
