13521  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Help Me Buy And Set Up an OTA Antenna on: December 07, 2006, 01:03:46 AM
D00D.

I bought an 80.00 antenna at Radio Shack back in January. I get all the major networks in High Definition and the picture is fabulous. 

I have the antenna in my attic (it's 'electrified' as plugging it in boosts its strength).

Works fabulously.

Of course, you don't get cable channels that way.
13522  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Gears of War Teams on: December 07, 2006, 01:00:41 AM
Here's how I've seen it done against me, so here's how we can form together as a team in ranked games.

The It works and isn't quite underhanded way:

With one of us hosting, we all input the same custom search parameters.  Min rounds, max rounds, weapon switching, friendly fire and game type.

Then we key in on the game held by our host.

That way all join that game and have people move to the other team.  Typically folks comply.


Second way:

We host and kick anyone who joins our team and move over to the team.

I've seen this done probably a half dozen times in my short MP experience.

What say you?

Who wants to try forming a team besides myself, Kaigen, PeteRock and Calvin.  Jancelot?
13523  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamespot 360/PS3 Graphics comparison on: December 06, 2006, 10:30:22 PM
Hmm it seems that the main difference is that the 360 graphics look a bit more washed out with the lighting...  I'm sure the full power of the PS3 over the 360 won't really be noticable until it has been established for 6 months to a year...

Guests are coming in on Friday and will be staying with us until Monday afternoon.  We plan to play a fair bit of Halo 2 multiplayer, but a few games of Gears of War may be an option.

Does anyone know if you can play Gears of War with two players on the same 360 over one Live account?  I think this is possible with Ghost Recon, but for some reason I thought I read somewhere that in order to play Gears of War over Live both players need online accounts on the same Xbox.  If not, and two of us can play over Live with one account, then you can count me in, as my friends and I can rotate in two at a time.

Paging Depward and TML. They were split screening the other night but the definitely had two accounts. Perhaps they know.

Agreed. Everyone should only have text in their sigs unless it's me and ...I was going to say Ed X but he'd probably have pics of men kissing. Hmmm. Not Purge, he should just be banned....Definitely not Ceekay lest he 'anime himself' again.  Kevin? Nah. Probably post a real time paint drying gif.  Hmmm.  Juniordan!

And we have come full circle.

Perfect.

Point is that yes we need to regulate immigration, but we don't need to treat people who are merely trying to better the lives and take care of their children as the enemy.

Does this same logic apply to welfare cheats?  Thieves?

Is breaking the law permissible if it's done to "better their lives and take care of their children?"


My daughter would probably really enjoy an HDTV.  I think I'll go visit Best Buy at 3 AM tonight and liberate one using the ATB Doctrine.

Smells like Red Herring in here.

Are you this soft on citizens that break the laws of our country? Personally, I don't care where they come from, what I care about is having our laws upheld by our government, and when people break those laws, the government enforcing them and punishing the offenders.

If I, jblank, a US citizen, have to follow the law of the land, then an outsider should also, and be subject to punishment if they don't.

Which immigration laws are you following again?

It's an anagram for Tab, the popular 80's soft drink that still contains saccharin.

Nintendo has to tell people not to throw the remote.
Bicycles need to have warnings on them that falling off can cause injury.
People sue McDonalds for 'making' them fat.

But if Gweneth Paltrow claims Americans are dumb... she gets hammered.

The world is an interesting place, thats for sure.

Huh. That's an interesting irony.

That said, ATB, if you pick up R6, I will buy it also.

Soon Ike, Soon.   When there is a deal, I shall strike.

What's MUA?

Modify: Let me rephrase. When I'm bored with GoW I shall return to Dead Rising for a bit.  Then perhaps R6.  I'm actually eyeing Kameo...or COD 2...

But maybe...maybe r6.

Gratch, I've definitely become more discriminating as I've gotten older. I think the reason for this is equal parts burnout, time deficiency, and the realization that my REAL life was passing me by. In my closet I had over 150 games that I purchased but never got a chance to play. There actually came a point recently when I found myself stressing and purposely speeding through a game so that I could move on to the next one in my backlog. At that point I knew that it was time to re-evaluate my gaming habits

*snip*

Dante, I have recently (within the last six months) experienced this exact same thing and couldn't have explained it better myself. I have reduced my gaming library by at LEAST 50% since then and cannot even begin to describe how much better I feel because of it. I'm actually enjoying my games again!

I am considering doing this myself.
13545  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: finished gears of war...was it cut? on: December 05, 2006, 04:47:49 PM
BTW- You get some back story if you leave the game sitting at the title screen for 4-5 minutes.

It's not much but it's something.

I'm no Halo fanboy. 1 was superb, 2 was a huge disappointment and 3 isn't on my list of most wanted. But that trailer kicks all kinds of butt.

Well, I finished Gears of War this morning so I'm on the prowl for my next title. However, I think I'm finally going to play Half Life 2 on XB1.

R6 V does look appealing but I'm gonna ride GoW multi and coop for a bit longer...

If not for the MP component, I'd feel pretty gypped on the length of GoW...that's for sure.

We have a new contender: Guitar Hero II

I do not dig the song selection thus far. I have blazed through whatever song sets to get to Sweet Child of Mine and then what happens? A craptacular cover.  CRAPTACULAR!

Ditto Cherry Pie.

Thus far there are no songs that I haven't heard before that have me like: Man that's a cool song! Like the first game.

I'm sadly dissappointed in this game.
