I'll probably just continue on posting in that thread.

I was playing VS. with the Wild today and Granlund took a penalty. When they show him in the box he had a blue or purple visor on..... Weird. Sorry if this has being bought up already.

Can't stand HUT anymore. It's just a constant spamfest of poke-checking and backhand to forehand deke goals. Think I'll go back to playing CoD for quite a while now.

Yeah, he has a blue-tinted visor and has had one since NHL '11 or '10 I believe. His face also resembles Zenon Konopka more than himself.

I've edited a clear visor for him in Be A GM. Can't stand tinted visors in general.

Colored visor are illegal in the NHL, right? Are they illegal over in europe? Why would EA put a colored visor on any real player? Stupid.

Don't know if they're illegal in Europe but he always wore a clear visor in Finland.

They need to add a "slightly smoked" and "slightly brown" visor option. Dislike the Darth Vader visors but would be cool to get that Perron/Gaborik/Hossa look.

I built a city in Sim City 4 that has broken 2 million residents.

I'm quite proud of myself.

Kind of! It's a large tile city. There are three city sizes: large (4km x 4km), Medium (2x2) and Small (1x1).

The region its sitting in is just shy of 7 Million right now.

My 4 largest cities have 2,000,000; 1,765,000 (large tile); 900,000(medium tile imitating a sardine can); 552,000 (medium tile); and 498,000 (medium tile).

I think my biggest small tile city is sitting just over 110k? Seriously, this region is just packing them in like nobodys business.

Not sure if this is the right place but I'm participating in a EHM GM League and I'm running Minnesota. Obviously I tried to recreate this year's lines but with our cap set at 64.5M I had to make some adjustments.

So here is some moves I made, I'd appreciate feed back on how you think I'm doing.

I wanted to pick up a PP QB to play with Suter. Was gunning to get Liles from Toronto but lost the sweepstakes. Ended up getting a much more expensive Markov from Montreal (the GM is blowing up the team).

I was also offered Sarich from Calgary (looking for a shut down d-man to play with Scandella) and a cheap defensive minded grinder in Begin. Had to make cap space for both trades so I traded Cullen to Toronto and picked up a much cheaper/younger Bozak who has very similar ratings.

Was able to offload Gilbert's salary as well. Although Granlund is playing in the NHL I have him seasoning in the AHL along with Brodin. I was able to make the cap work but it meant dumping Mitchell in the AHL *sad face*

I'll be rolling with these lines to start

Parise-Koivu-Heatley
Bouchard-Bozak-Setoguchi
Clutterbuck-Brodziak-Powe
Veilleux-Konopka-Begin

Suter-Markov
Stoner-Spurgeon
Scandella-Sarich

Backstrom
Harding

Tiger Woods 2013 - I suck at this, and it's a little boring

Unfinished Swan - really cool game, great presentation (like a story book), fascinating concept, my girlfriend actually perked up with this game and my 3-year-old could play. Well done.

Been using almost every free moment of mine playing Sim City 4. I've got another city to hit 2 Million, a couple of other medium tiles busted past the half million mark, and I'm nearing completion of an all-high-wealth Skyscraper Forest. My goal is a stable population of 1,000,000 and I am at 950,000. I'm completely out of room and unwilling to eliminate the scenic water features, so I bulldozed my Hydrogen plants, stuck em in another city, and re-used the space. It costs a hell of a lot, but at one point I was wondering what was going to happen first: this city hitting 1,000,000 residents or 1,000,000,000 cash on hand. Right now its got 400 million in the bank. And that's not using cheats btw. That's what happens when you run a huge budget surplus for 500 years. I'm probably burning hundred dollar bills in the Mayors Mansion to heat it at this point. Because I CAN.

There's a half-off sale on all Final Fantasy games on the PlayStation Network. I picked up FF 7, 8, and 9 each for $5. I might pick up Tactics as well, never really got into it.

Which Tactics is it?

Tactics Advance and Advance 2 on Gameboy Advance were amazing. Absolutely loved both of them.

Tactics for PSP was a remake of the original PS1 game with better graphics. I enjoyed that one a ton as well. It was the sole reason i held on to my PSP for so long. Ended up selling it anyway.

Hopefully they release a Tactics game on 3DS soon. That thing is collecting dust hard right now.

I dunno, I think the first one for PSX? I didn't look closely.

What is this Dissidia stuff they have out there?

I'm excited to play 8 and 9. I only got 2/3 of the way through 9 but loved it. Never played 8. 7 is, well, legendary.

Not sure if i'm 100% correct, but Dissidia is a pseudo-fighting game like Street Fighter or Tekken, only it has fan favorites from the rest ofthe Final Fantasy games. Like Cloud(FF7) and Lightning(FF13 or 14). But it incorporates some other stuff into the matches so it is not just a straight up button masher.

I could be totally wrong on the gameplay stuff, but i am like 99% sure it involves a compilation of a ton of well known FF characters.
