That's something.  I would never buy one, but this reeks of censorship.

Quote from: EngineNo9 on December 21, 2006, 03:15:50 AM

It doesn't help that these days you can barely fit a normal sized person in a coach airline seat, let alone somebody who is overweight, broad shouldered or extra tall. 

I'm 6' and 190. I have no problem fitting in a coach seat. 

If he wins this suit it will set a bad precedent.  Being fat, except in extremely rare cases, is not a disease nor should those who are grossly obese be given a free pass.

I hope the airline wins the case.

I was flying with my wife once when an overweight man sat went to sit next to her and started to pull the armrest up.  I reached over and slammed the armrest down and said "it stays down".  He just glared at me and then tried to fit his bulk into his seat. 

I dont' know what I would have done in this situation. I probably woudl protest, but I don't know if I would be so blunt.

Should we use this thread for like, real GOTY stuff?

It just took me an hour to put together a top 10 GOTY list for 2006, and was wondering if we were gonna do an official thread or should I just throw it in here?

This thread was made prematurely-at the end of November. I propose a more structured thread purely with lists, and this thread for discussion.

Then make one!

The thing that's wrong about it is that it puts children into sexual situations.  Child porn? Not exactly. On the way to being child porn. Yep.

Why is ATB looking to sell Indigo Prophecy *after* the backwards compatibility patch has finally made it playable on the X-Box 360?  I would think that would be a better reason to keep it....

Minor IP spoiler:

I was enjoying that game until I got to the bookstore.  I'm a cop, see, and I'm asking the bookstore owner about a murder investigation. He tells me "I'll answer your questions but first you have to do x, y, and z."  In real life the response would be: "How about this: You answer my questions or you spend the night in jail for obstruction?"  But no. I'm sent to find some books.  I said, "Hup. All done with this one."

I never turned it back on again as the seemed to be a hugely poor design decision with extending the game as the sole point.

The original Fallout.  Man.  What an ending.

Pop:SOT was one I'll never forget

The ending of DIABLO II was outstanding as well.

Hmm. I'll have to think on what my favorite one is though..



I bet everyone chimes in here about Planescape Torment. I never played it but everyone seemed to love that game.

I bet a lot of you will be traveling so it might be hard to pull a game together.

I'm definitely in for Friday.  Saturday is sketchy at this point, but a possibility for coop/MP

We can play execution again as that seemed to mix things up nicely.

Also, we could try assassination- I've never played it, but concensus will win out.

Yeah, college payments are going to break my back some day.

We're planning to set the hopes of our kids by telling them that they must achieve as best as they can to get assistance/scholarships because chances are we won't be able to pay a full ride for them. In fact, I can't conceive any possibility that we can.

However, I don't know that a full ride is necessarily something parents 'owe' to their children.  I think they should help as much as possible, but it shouldn't be an expectation on the part of the kids.

This is contrary to my own upbringing as my parents paid my full way (and truthfully I cannot express how grateful I am that they did), but again I don't think it should be an entitlement.

On the flipside though, if my kids somehow get into Brown or Dartmouth...I'll do everything I can to help them...but a full ride will definitely be out of the question.

Anyone have a 529 plan?

We rocked it a little saturday night. Some good matches, but not as intense as the Friday night crew.

That was fun.  Unfortunately I suck.  Part of it is unfamiliarity with the maps and being new to GoW.  Part of it is I'm just not that great at multiplayer.

But I did have fun and I actually killed a couple of people so that was nifty!

Loved having you warning <loved having you warning>.

13559  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: One Game At a Time: My Xbox 360 Purchasing Rule on: December 18, 2006, 05:18:25 PM
An exciting update:

Upon further consideration, my backlog was much worse than originally reported as I did not include games that I was actively working on.  True counts including backlog and those in active rotation are significantly bigger.

However, I've decided to condense the nonsense.  My XB1 has been listed on Ebay and will close today.  As a result, I'm booting almost all of my XB1 backlog (despite BC options).

There are games on the PS2 that did not grab me like I hoped: Looking at you Okami and you Bully.  Those plus 3 others are listed.

DS: Finished a game and am selling a couple I'm working on that I don't care to finish.

So as of this writing, my true backlog = 8 Games
Add to that list the games I am actively playing across all platforms = 9

My total backlog/Active Game list is 17 games.  Not too shabby. 

Of those 17, there are 3 that I don't know if I'll go back to/finish: DQ8 (70 more hrs to go!?), Shadow Hearts Covenant (not grabbing me like the first one) and Guitar Hero II (I dunno what it is, but it's not nearly as charming as GH1).

My active list consists of the following:

Dead Rising (beaten, replaying)
Gears of War (beaten, replaying)
Elite Beat Agents (almost done)
New Super Mario Bros (bogged down somewhere)
Advanced Wars Dual Strike (3 or so more missions left)
Killer 7 (3 or so more missions)
Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow (1/3 through the game)

The additional good news is that there's nothing out there now that I HAVE to have...so I'm in really good shape and the contest for all intents and purposes is over.

I have pared my BL down enough to create enough 30 dollar credits to afford me any 360 game...However, I'm not breaking my one game at a time rule as it has really afforded me the ability to sink my teeth into both DR and GoW.

It has been nice playing and it's good to almost have the monkey off my back.
