13482  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / And thus, the Vonage Experiment comes to an end on: December 13, 2006, 03:46:03 PM
After 11 months, I have given Vonage the boot.

We experienced voice drops from the get go but the 15.00 or so per month savings (X2) was worth the occaisonal issue.

Then, of course, the voice drops out completely when I receive or send large files.  Hmm Okay. I'll try to avoid doing that when I'm on a call.

A bit later, for whatever reason, my ability to dial into conference calls became spotty. Okay. This is now impacting my ability to earn a living.

Then, within the past 3 weeks it has been: voice drops, the problem with the files, having to say hello for 15 seconds before the person calling us can hear us, having to wait 10 seconds for a dial tone,  having to wait 25 seconds before outgoing calls actually ring and a partridge in a pear tree.

So I called Embarq (formerly Sprint- who I have never heard ANYTHING GOOD about (either wireless or voice) <sigh>) and are using them as my local and long distance carrier.

Adios 21st century. Welcome back 20th!

2nd one.

And I think the Gears of War commercial with this song in it is one of the suckiest attempts to blend music with content I've ever seen.

Is there an overarching theme to the song that I'm missing that some how connects to the game?

I ask because the song sucks and I cannot stand listening to the whole thing.

Got to Canned Heat tonight and as mentioned it is the first song that doesn't match at all to the beat. I managed to get through it with a crappy score and unlocked and beat the first bonus scenario.

Let me just say, the first scenario after the first bonus, Christmas Gift, had me balling my eyes out.
13495  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Military Folks- Abu Ghraib Question on: December 11, 2006, 12:35:30 AM
So there's a story on 60 minutes tonight about the guy who blew the whistle on the AG situation.

He is so unpopular now, that he has to live in a secret location. His lifelong friends abandoned him and he's viewed as a rat.

Military people/former or current- Is the bond between soldiers SO strong that morality must be eschewed to protect that bond?

He's drawing lots of fire because he exposed the prison scandal. It's 'bad for America'. 

The quote that really got me is 'Never put the enemy before your fellow soldiers'.

I was flabberghasted at that!

I cannot understand the band of brothers phenomenon as I've never served, but how can a man be considered a traitor for upholding a moral code that is even greater than that of the military?

I'm not asking the question well, but this story has shaken me.

13498  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 -- Keep it or sell it? on: December 10, 2006, 12:11:45 AM
A quick look of closed ebay auctions just now shows that the prices have come down drastically.  They're hovering in the 750 to 850 ranges now.

With ebay and paypal fees your profit margin is slipping.

However, you could wait it out and see if there's a spike at Christmas and then sell it or just keep it.

Personally, there's nothing out there I want to play on PS3. Resistance is the only title that looks good to me and nearly every review I've read/heard/whatevers says that it's rather derivative.

He was racking up kills like nobody's business, but he didn't brag or trash talk...and when someone got the drop on him he gave credit where credit was due.


Wrong thread? LE is usually good at games, thast probably why. I will so kick his ass at GoW though. Guaranteed.

Big talk from a schmo who never accepts invites.  I think you're a sally.

13504  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weird 360 Sound Issues on: December 08, 2006, 07:58:53 PM
I'm getting so sound from the dashboard (you know the up sound or side to side sound).

Also, i'm playing dead rising and while I am getting great sound for the most part, there are areas where I"m getting none.

For example when otis calls I can't hear the chime.

Sound is registering in the receiver as 5.1 but it's acting very finicky.

Is this a greater known issue or do I just need to check my speaker wires...?

Sell it. I sold mine. Didn't make as much as I thought I would, but did pretty well.

Prices may spike at christmas, but if word gets around that the console sucks (bait) then prices will continue to drop.

Or you could sell it to me for retail and I'll sell it. slywink
13507  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Official Sales Numbers for November on: December 08, 2006, 02:40:06 PM
Given all the talk of how PSP is having its lunch eaten, one must notice that 400k units is a very strong number given that Sony hasn't dropped the price or created any killer bundles.

True as compared to the DS/GBA combined it's small, but overall it's far more impressive than I expected, as many of the gaming insiders consider the PSP a nearly dead platform and repeatedly state that Sony MUST DO SOMETHING (redesign, price drop etc) to get it back on the map...

I'll be playing Elite Beat Agents throughout the weekend.  Also, might do some Gears of War multi on Saturday night...but as I said, I might take that night off.

Also, I'm totally back into Dead Rising as I try to experience some of the story (and psychopaths) I missed the first time.

I noticed he had the Banned tag when I was digging up the stats for my retrospective.

I thought it was a joke tag.

Oh well.

He had been pretty money lately and I even commented to him that I appreciated his insights, but I think he's had enough chances.
