I don't understand why you would be sad that they didn't add a new case when you have never even played these yet.

Because the best case in the last one was made specifically for the DS.  Case 5. It was the longest and most complex...and featured Damon Gant biggrin

Well the meeting has been scheduled for 5PM today.

Austin pointed out that it's at the end of the day.


I'm probably getting fired and they don't want me to make a scene. Of course, I'm 300 miles south of them, so the logic doesn't hold up all that well.

Didn't follow the link but did they cite lower than expected availability as a problem?

oh and analysts are useless.

+1 to the analyst part, but I don't think availability will be an issue.  According to itrackr.com the PS3 has been available in 24 store around the Columbus area for a week or two.  I've been fighting the temptation to break my resolution and buy a new shiney since I can't find a Wii.   Every time I stop in the local EBGames to check and see if they have any Wii's they go 'no, but there's a PS3 with your name on it in the back'.  icon_lol

DON'T do it.

Personally, I like it.  It's kind of a "welcome, n00bcakes.  Now kindly get the makin love out" kind of message.

Now that you mention it, it is kinda like the old west.  KD just roughed someone up and as they're crawling out of town on bloodied stumps with swollen eyes and their teeth leaving a trail behind them, he spits and says 'Welcome to GamingTrend.'

That's hot!  thumbsup

Or like Will Smith when he punches the alien in the head and yells 'Welcome to earf!'

Maybe not that one so much..

It sends such an awkward and confusing message.

Sadly, that is easier said than done.  I'll do some research and see if this can be done on a per usergroup basis.

Is there any way to tell when you've collected all the artifacts on a planet?

How many are on each planet?

I think there are two per planet.  If you haven't collected the first one, the second one will not be available.

Quote
How do you use the map? It makes no stinking sense to me.

The logbook makes no sense to me. 

It shows 85% on weapons when I don't even have most of them.

It also doesn't tell me which artifacts are still remaining nor what planets they're on.

It's been a while.  I'll take a look at the SP game again (I keep it now for MP).

There are far more than 2 artifacts. Maybe there are only 2 obelisk things or whatever....

The lack of a coherent map may be bring about the untimely end of my play for this game.

Everythign I said up top is true, but I can get lost only so many times.

This will be the last time I'm able to play for 2-3 weeks due to various commitments!  Had trouble getting a game together at 10 this past weekend, but by 11 we had it stacked and packed.

Some regulars had a rough time and checked out early (Forcebane looking at you), but a good time was had by most.

This friday should prove to be epic. EPIC I say!

What I really love is when you're at an absolutely frustrating spot, and you just can't get past it no matter how many effin' times you try. So, you end up quitting.

Then a day or two later, you try it again, and you solve it in one shot.

Yeah that is so weird. has happened to me more than i remember.

Quote from: Don Banks of SI
Gone, gone, gone. Marty Schottenheimer's tenure as the Chargers coach was as good as over as soon as Patriots rookie kicker Stephen Gostkowski sent his 31-yard game-winning field goal through the uprights at Qualcomm Stadium.

That will be the price of San Diego losing at home to New England and wasting the No. 1 seed in the powerful AFC playoff field. I see next to no way Chargers general manager A.J. Smith won't pull the plug on Schottenheimer, who has consistently won in the regular season during his 21-year head coaching career, and consistently lost in the playoffs. Often in one-and-done fashion despite a lofty seed.


Discuss.

I still say Schott would have gotten the Skins in the superbowl in his second year if man child Dan Snyder had not fired him for that louse Spurrier.  I don't know that he should be fired. He's turned SD around. They were pretty pathetic before he took the reins, IIRC.

Sigh. Didn't watch the game, but poor Schottenheimer. This was probably the best chance he's had so far.  If they had beaten the pats, the probably would have steamrolled the colts (though the colts are playing much better D) and I don't see the Saints or Bears stopping them.

Now, if the pats go to the bowl, they'll beat the bears, but lose to the saints.

IF the colts go, they'll lose either way.

OF course I dont' watch football it's just a feeling.

Jason Stratham's latest is on DVD (I don't remember this movie being in theaters). Has anyone seen it?

I like him a lot and this looks like a good guy movie, but I'm tentative that it is a ridiculously stupid action film like Transporter.

What's the skinny?

As for Smokin Aces. Saw the commercial for this Jeremy Piven actioner. 

My wife remarks: That looks so stupid.

She looks over at me and I'm transfixed, a bit of drool streaming down my chin at the corner of my mouth.

Wife: But I guess that's right up you're alley.

Sad because they were so misguided.

Sad because I know there are dozens of vids out there where the attacks were successful.

Sad because our boys have to be over there fighting for their lives.

Just sad.  I hope and pray that all of our boys who are so proud of their efforts (and they should be) in that movie never make it into one of the videos where the outcome is an al queda rallying film. 

God be with them.
