Transporter was awesome.

No taste.




I have no taste?  Tell me ATB, what did you think of the second Xmen movie?

It sucked.  Spiderman 2, however, is one of the best movies ever made.

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.

GoW Friday night. That's it for 360.

Metroid Prime Hunters for DS.
13485  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NFL Playoff Predictions (Divisional Playoffs Edition) on: January 15, 2007, 04:07:18 AM
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.


YUP!  Anyone know the goods on this one?

That's something.  I wish I could revel in that won skirmish, but I'm left feeling sad.

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.

I've read somewhere that there is a DR2 in the works. 2007 a likely year for it to ship or should we expect 08?

With regard to the some boxes don't connect problem.  Run the network test in the system blade.  Be sure that NAT isn't showing Moderate.  If so make sure your router's firmware is updated properly or that it's an approved router.

What's NAT?

I will be there, but as I said, it likely wont be till 11 or 11:30 at the earliest due to prior commitments.

13508  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Metroid Prime Questions Beginning on Post #7 on: January 12, 2007, 04:37:54 PM
I'm now playing Metroid Prime Hunters on the DS.

It's my first Metroid game since the original, yet I still have an attachment to the character.

Anyhoo- the control scheme is dead on perfect.  I'm quite surprised that it works so well.  Are there any other FPS games on the DS that are as good? I think if any other ones are made, it should exactly replicate MPH.  Brilliant!

My only gripe is using the left shoulder to fire. I don't know how else they would have done it, but in prolonged battles my hand actually gets sore....not something I'm used to when playing the lite.

A few QT3 dudes (some good cats. I almost choked one when one said 'what's gamingtrend?')
A couple of other guys we've met playing (varying levels of skill)
Some randomers. (varying levels of skill)

Good time had by all* until 1:30!

So your only options are to either build up a single uber-group, or try running around with multiple groups of under-powered characters.   

Hmm, you know, I never thought of that as a drawback, but in context I can see how it is.  However, I believe that that was the intent of the game as you can only carry one hero foreward after each mission.

In the grand scheme of TBS I can see how that doesn't jive, but specfically in the DS world, it works well.  

You're absolutely right though, and it's something that I never considered: it's a huge departure from AoW and HOMM III style play.  Harumph!

At the point just before you play it, realize you should love it, determine that it's missing something that prevents you from doing so despite your grandest efforts to make your heart care when all it wants to do is not and it ends up being a grave disappointment despite the fact that you pined away for it for months, dug the artwork very much, even toyed with the idea of getting the soundtrack but wisely didn't and you cast it onto the rubbish bin of ebay to defray the costs that you invested in what should have been a highlight of your year but ended up making you wake up crying in the middle of the night wondering what might have been and wondering what went wrong.
