Over his last 23 innings pitched, he's given up 3 hits, no earned runs, and struck out 33 batters. He's also now tied for 2nd, at 296 Ks, for State's all time strikeout record.

If it's any consolation, I had to recreate my Shepard visually because of the botched face import bug at the time of release.

On a somewhat (gaming) related note, what does everyone think about the Xbox One and PS4? I've always had an Xbox, and never owned a playstation console, but by the looks of things I'm going to have to seriously consider the PS4 this time.

Same situation for me. Always had an Xbox, but much will depend on how things turn out in the end. Glad they're finally adding blu-ray to it, but if they go through with making it very tough to share/buy used without a big 'fee' it may push me to the PS4. Most of the other features for TV and social media don't matter to me at all. Could easily do without.

Last time I waited a couple of years until the red ring of death was fixed and there was a decent selection of games already out. Will most likely take the wait and see approach again.

Yeah I usually take the wait and see approach too, so it'll probably be Christmas time 2014 before I pick up one of the next gens. As long as I can play NHL on my console, I'm happy

I have both an Xbox 360 and a PS3. I barely use the PS3, mainly for playstation exclusive games or playing games (Borderlands 1/2) with a friend who only has a PS3. Or blu-rays, if I watch DVDs, which is rare.

I use my Xbox 360 for any other game I'd buy.


Having said that, I'm not too sure what to make of what I've seen of the Xbox One, but it would still probably be my first choice because I never buy/sell used games. Ever. I still have 360 games from 2005 that I played maybe twice. I'm not sure if I'd use the PS4 features enough to ditch my NHL buddy on Xbox.

I don't know how but the US might actually be a better team without Donovan then with him.

Just settling in to watch the USA kill Canada in Version 2.0 of Women's Soccer.

Good Times

Yeah, in your case I guess that doesn't really matter. I rarely trade in games, mainly becasue I know what games I like, I buy them, and keep them. I do buy used about half of the time though, if I can save 5 bucks it's usually worth it to me. However, EA's online pass ruined that for most sports games, which is mainly what I play.

I used to prefer the game selection on the 360, but I'm starting to wonder if there's anything Xbox exclusive that'd really keep me tied to the console. I used to be really big into Halo, but I didn't buy 4, and I really don't have any interest in the series anymore. Since I mainly play sports games, and use Steam for everything else, the PS4 offering MLB the Show definitely puts a plus in the Playstation column. Are there any other big name, Xbox-only series?

Missed a hell of a game between the US and Germany then. Although I didn't realize that the Pens and Flyers coaching staffs were working with both countries defenders.

Sorry for the delayed response, I'm at work. As far as Xbox exclusives, I really haven't been following anything much, or at least enough to know about anything coming out. The only games I've played recently have been NHL, Bioshock Infinite (three times), Far Cry 3....and Dark Cloud on the PS2.

How dare you take almost an hour to respond

And yeah, my thinking is the lack of enticing xbox-exclusives makes it easier for me to switch over to a playstation. I'm excited to try out both controllers, while I definitely prefer the 360 over the PS3 controller, I like the changes Sony has made, but not so much on the xbox side.

Hey, don't yell at me. I didn't look at the time you posted, I just read the post and responded to it when I could. And how dare YOU for taking over two hours to respond to ME!


I echo your sentiments on the PS3/Xbox 360 controllers. The PS3 triggers always get bumped and **** stuff up in games for me, plus they just don't feel....natural.

I'm going to wait on either console for a while anyways, but I'll re-evaulate based on what I've heard/read at that point after the kinks have been worked out a bit.
