I won't ask if that makes him gay.  retard  icon_wink

There was a thread about that a year and a half ago on OO. The original poster said something about the guy being gay (he edited his post later). As is the modus operandi over yonder, drama ensued.

Hence the 'I won't ask if that makes him gay.' line with the :ralphwiggum: and the :icon_ wink:.

Not subtle enough for j00?

Not North America. GLOBALLY.

Nah, with all the Nintendo fanaticism in Japan, and their fascination with "quirky" things, they will be all over the Wii, so I won't take that bet. When I talk gaming here, I am talking about North America. Global numbers are irrelevant to me, otherwise I would be all over Soccer, which people say is the "#1 sport globally".

Well, I don't believe it will be number one in NA...but globally I do.

But what do you mean by #1? Most total systems sold? Or most sold the month the bet ends? The latter is a possibility, but there's no way the former will be true.

Anotha Doubta!  Put it in tha book.  ATB don't front.  Nintendo Numba 1 fo' life!

13727  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Phone Spam From Gamestop As a Result of PS3 Preorder? on: October 20, 2006, 06:45:47 PM
I've gotten two calls from Gamestop in the past two days.

The first was a customer service survey. Cool.

The second was an 'informational' ad that Talledaga Nights is going to be bundled with PS3. OMG!

Also, If I trade anything in toward the pay off of the console, I get an extra 20% in credit towards it.

So what if I trade in 10 games get that extra 20%, then they don't have a console for me and I cancel the pre-order? Does that mean I make money on the deal?

Outside of some gaming messageboards is there alot of hype?  And doesn't every console get hyped on gaming message boards?  I think it might be cool.  It will be different.  Does different automatically mean better?  Not necessarily.

Ditto. I started reading this thread and kept saying to myself, "What hype?".  People talk about it here and they talk about it on other boards, but I'm not hearing my fellow gaming friends slobber with anticipation of it (I personally only know 1 person that has it preordered) like I hear with the PS3.

My experience is the opposite in that I no nobody who cares about the PS3 due to it being perceived as too expensive and due to the limited supply.  I know plenty of people hyped about the Wii.

Then we run in very different circles. Most of my friends are 30+ IT guys that are "techies" I guess you would say.

So are mine.

Touche!

All my friends are nuns and convicts.  They're both equally excited for each console.

If FNL goes off the air, then basically I've not picked up any new shows this year.

If anything, there's anti-hype around the Wii amongst the gaming hardcore.  Gamecube 1.5, the Giimick, etc.

Sure, the post-hardcore (or as I like to call them, postcore) gamers are wetting their jaded Depends at the "INNOVATESHUN."  Pay them no heed -- in the face of the 360 and PS3, the Wii will inevitably disappoint.

#1 this gen. Watch and see.

Care to bet a $25.00 donation to the charity of the winners choosing, that it doesn't get out of the #3 spot?

Well, how would we set the parameters? What's the timeline?  By Christmas it will be #2 almost by default.  Does that mean I win?

Its affordable already though buddy. I can get you right now, at this very moment, links that show well performing, reliable, quality HDTV's, for $500.00 and if you want an LCD, hows about a 32" for $649.00?

That is still a ton of money for a TV. Specially when SD is 1/3 of the price.

Gonna Spend some time with Dead Rising, my first 360 game.  I keep starting over so that I can get the control scheme (and new controller) down...I also accidentally created two profiles and got some achievements on the one I deleted. Oh wells.

Have tried the demo for Smash TV and loved it. I loved that game back in the day. But...since I have no points I may not pull the trigger on it yet.

Finally, hope to log some time with Killer 7.

And you're going to escalate to whom when?

I'm a cheap ass through and through and try never to pay anywhere near full price unless there are extenuating circumstances.

I will pay full price gladly for GH2 in november.  I paid more than full price for Phoenix Wright.
I paid full price for Castlevania on DS (still haven't played it).

But usually I hit a sale, use a coupon, wait, or just adopt stuff later in its run and by that time there's much out there sub original msrp.

Nothing is as good as the hype because we as gamers are lemmings.  Something comes out. We get lathered up at the potential. It hits and even if it's amazing it's never as good as our disproportionate hope.

Whe Wii is going to be fun and a huge success, but I have intentionally ratcheted back the attention I pay to it so that anything from here on in is a pleasant surprise.

Manufacturing date of the console they sent me: 10-29-2005

 :icon_eek:

Is this a new console or did they just send you a refurb?

It is a refurb.  Only reason I know is because none of the clear stickers are on the system.  I am going to let it sit overnight and try it tomorrow.

I call BS on this.  Call MS and UPS and say that the package you received contained very sensitive electronics, that it was left in the rain and is now damaged.  You want a replacement.  Escalate the mother out of that until you get satisfaction.

MS and UPS are bonded against this. They should totally replace the unit.

I grabbed Robotech: Battlecry off the backlog shelf today and realized I was barely into it when last I played it...

Two years ago.

As such, that's next on my "to complete ASAP" list.

The real gaming fun though will be next weekend when My Fair Lady is in Austin at a work conference all day Friday-Sunday. I may have to call in *cough* sick next Friday and burn through as much of my backlog as is humanly possible then. icon_twisted

Battlecry was my first console game since the Genesis.  It is still one of the best and is on my short list for replay.  BRAVO!

Sooooooo- I finally hooked into Live today and thus far am pretty impressed. 

The interface is clean and simple, but I must say the dashboard in general is a bit overwhelming.  I've spent some time combing over it, but feel like there's still so much more to ascertain.  I've downloaded a couple of demos inlcuding SmashTV. Man I loved that game back in the day.

This leads to a question: What's the most ecconomical way to get MarketPlace Points?
