Also, I'd prefer one that records on a memory card...or do they all do that?

That's pretty cool.

I'm not sure I understood the rock under the block thing.

If teh block weighs 1600 lbs, how does he lift it on top of the stone?  Even with those handles, he's still got to muscle at least a significant portion of that weight vertically.

Also, can someone explain how he used that technique with that barn? 
13723  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need to Research Digital Video Cameras: Advice Sought on: October 17, 2006, 12:14:03 PM
I'm hoping this will be the last dime I spend on anything technological for a long time...The family is in 'need' of a digital video camera and as I'm not a technofile, I know nothing about anything until the time comes to need to know.

So I'm calling on the GT techno-studs for another assist. Good non-Sony brands? Good sites for researching different features (besides CNet)...etc.

I'm hoping there's a good mid level digital camcorder in the $500-600 range

Thanks.

Amazon can be scratched off the list due to my cancellation of the order.

Best Buy credited my account for the points today. John, Customer Service Supervisor in San Diego CA, you magnificent bastard! You did it!

I'm going to press my luck and call Verizon right now.

No matter how much you hate them, WEAR THE GOGGLES WHEN YOU SLEEP.  Do it faithfully for 3-4 weeks.  It's annoying, but man it will save your eyeballzorz.

Me too, but if its a Wario-ware type game I think I will just pass on it.

It's an RPG from the makers of Killer 7. 

Drawin' a blank on that one too.

What Kevin said.  I'm playing through Killer 7 right now and it is absolutely a love hate relationship.

While it is a brilliant game, I'm not sure why it's a brilliant game yet.  I love it, but I don't know why.  The story is intriguing but I don't know why.  The style just clicks pefectly with me but...I don't know why.

Watch Kasvan's video review of it on Gamespot.  It sold me on it. It might sell you on staying far away from it.

It's just one of those games.
13729  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Lasik surgery tomorrow on: October 16, 2006, 04:41:51 PM
I was -9 and off the charts. Astigmatic in both eyes too.  I was a mess.

If you don't mind me asking, how much does Lasik cost these days?

It's pretty cheap at Costco, and you can return your eyes if they mess it up!!   thumbsup

Winnar!

I had mine done in February.  That thread is the saga leading up to and after.

I was on the high end of -9 and am now seeing 20/20 in my left and 20/25 in my right.

Side effects: halos at night (not terrible) and when the seasons change I need lubricating drops.

Cost: 2650 per eye for me.

WOuld have been worth it at double the cost. I now have movie star good looks. thumbsup

BULLY!  This is my first PS2 day one purchase.  Please don't turn out to be a bad game!

1up Yours Podcast seemed to be glowing about it.  Can't wait for it.

Have had it as my background on my PC since forever.

13739  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ideal Game Length For You? on: October 16, 2006, 10:10:37 AM
Might should be in general gaming, but...

What's your ideal game length? 

Based on a comment by Kevin Grey in some thread somewhere and listening to an old 1up Yours podcast, the topic has been on my brain.

There are many variables to consider 10 hrs of genius is better than 30 hrs of crap. Additionally there's cost to time played ratio, but if you parse it down to what your schedule is, your RL commitments, etc,  overall what's your ideal length for a game.

I'll stick to what I replied to KG and go with 11-20 leaning toward the upper end of that range as a game of that length, unless I stay up late and neglect sleep, will last me weeks and weeks.  20 to 30 hr games also fit within the sweet spot. 
13740  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: One Game At a Time: My Xbox 360 Purchasing Rule with Contest on: October 16, 2006, 10:00:36 AM
Update:

Well, instead of waiting around on Amazon, I jumped on the 360+3 games for 459.00 shipped from outpost.

I'm planning on selling Saint's Row and Test Drive Unlimited on Ebay and making Dead Rising my first 'next gen' experience.

Hopefully, I'll find time to have it done by GoW's release date.
13741  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Weekend Recap 16/Oct/06 on: October 16, 2006, 09:52:07 AM
For me, it was a pretty good gaming weekend. I got about 3 hours of Killer 7 in.  I also watched the first cutscene that really truly bothered me.

This game is whacked, but unique and that's why I'll keep going.

MDK is pretty unusual.  What an underappreciated series that was.  I wish they'd make a third.
13744  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: John Woo's presents Stranglehold on: October 16, 2006, 12:00:54 AM
Hard Boiled is a great movie. The gunfight throughout the hallways of that one place (spoiler free!) is an epic example of action, special effects and camera work.

13745  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 warranty -- worth it? on: October 15, 2006, 11:59:52 PM
When mine arrives, I plan on getting it.

OMG!  Max Payne 1/2 are two of my favorite games.  This looks incredible. Hopefully, I'll have GoW done by then so I can buy it  icon_biggrin

I've also gotten the itch to dig up Metal Arms from my box of oldies and give it a try on the 360. 


One of my favorite games this generation. If you haven't played it at all, you're in for a treat. The humor is awesome, the gameplay is nice and varied and the levels are a hoot.

Huzzah for you!
