401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wal-Mart controls what games you play on: April 13, 2006, 12:50:06 PM
Think me and Gatorfavre watched the same video. It was just insane what Walmart can do. They would often bring in companies and negotiate hours for just a few pennies. I also remember a bit more about the Rubbermaid story. Essentially the cost of resin had gone up, which in every market means that the price must go up to adjust. Walmart wouldn't hear it. They wanted it to stay at the same price. Rubbermaid had to comply even though they were losing money on each sale. Which of course led to the bankruptcy.

Whatever happened to that whole CDs should be 10 dollars thing Walmart was going for?
403  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Morgan Webb reviews X3(must see!)nsfw on: April 08, 2006, 01:02:19 PM
Honestly it would have been funnier if Adam had done it, though I realize why they picked Morgan.

But man why didn't Egosoft catch this one? Won't someone think of the children.

Though strangely enough, the review got me interested in the title.

I'm already back. Just read what Punisher posted concerning his point number seven and would sort of agree.

I wonder what would happen if she moved her right arm back a bit to cover up the chest fold over illusion, which would also have the added benefit of raising the chest a little bit as well.

Another idea concerning the arms, taking into account the previous addition of moving her right back, would be to have her left arm bent so that her hand was doing something with her hair. Not necessarily running fingers through it, perhaps pushing it up a bit giving the sort of messy look (Seems like that was what you said you were going for), or even tweaking a small portion of hair.
Keeping with the smile thing, which I'm liking more, and this different pose maybe have her give more of a lazy kind of smile with her eyes a bit more closed. Which again, keeping to a previous comment you made, make her look a bit more relaxed than usual.

Another unprofessional opinion here.

I'm not sure what it is about the hair that bothers me, but I'm thinking it may not be the hair at all. Maybe it's that the hair is trying to draw attention to the face when it should be the other way around. I'd be curious to see what a slight smile, on one side, and keeping the mouth slightly open like she has here. Sort of a mischievious or perhaps wry kind of thing.

The arms. The more I look at it, the more I keep picturing a superman kind of pose. But honestly I'm not sure how I would change this. A prop maybe, something small though as you don't really want to cover the chest if you can help it. Especially the shadows, as it adds more depth to something than is really there.

The only other thing you might want to try is b&w. It would be interesting to see what added shadow does to the picture. Or maybe, if you are somewhat photoshop inclined, keep everything b&w except a red mouth and perhaps a color faded tattoo, just to keep a depth going (Or as an added treat for the viewer).

There are maybe some other things but they venture into the realm of false perfection/photoshop and I'm not going to go there.

Side Note-I'm so far very pleased with how everyone has been professional about this and suggest perhaps that anyone that isn't just get their post truanced by a mod to keep this thread civil and on topic.

Oh, and your wife is beautiful. You better damn well be telling her this on a daily basis.

I'd be curious if it's the comic version or the animated one. If it's the latter curse them for not having Hawkgirl.

413  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is Uwe Boll really that bad? on: February 20, 2006, 06:16:55 PM
Raul Julia did Overdrawn at the Memory Bank. Which makes Street Fighter look like high theater.

There's no denying that we all like a few movies that the majority didn't, hell I liked Dungeons and Dragons, but most people don't build their resumes on failures as Uwe has done. You do a couple bad movies, learn from your mistakes, improve on the third. He seems to have forgotten the last two steps.
414  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is Uwe Boll really that bad? on: February 17, 2006, 02:10:09 PM
The problem is for the longest time we expected comic translations to be horrible as well. It took a talented director/writer to prove us wrong. When some ass keeps making bad movies to such an extent that the fans it aims to bring in throw up their hands and say why bother. A good director, and to a greater extent the studio, is more likely to pass over something that could have made a good film.

I'm not sure what the translation would be, guessing maybe Suit Bag. Anyway it's an interesting idea, especially if the feet could have some sort of traction and you had some way to convert the hands to gloves and back again. Though either way I could see myself buying one of these to put in my van as a 'just in case' if I ever got stuck and the weather was cold.
421  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Treadmills - Which one would you choose on: February 07, 2006, 12:31:40 AM
I'm looking to buy a treadmill and am currently deciding between couple different ones.

Life Fitness T3-5
Landice L7 LTD Pro Sports

They both are getting excellent reviews. I like the console and accessory rack on the Landice better but the Life Fitness $400 cheaper though it looks like shipping is covered for the Landice but not the Fitness so it may be only 200 cheaper.
Unfortunately neither have any local dealers I can go to to try either out.

424  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WoW is anti gay? on: January 28, 2006, 11:51:51 PM
Pardon the ignorance as I don't know WoW, but what other channels are there, in game? I imagine, as with all MMO, that there are people that just play and don't touch anything outside of the game (Forums, fansites, etc.). As such their only exposure are the channels you use while playing.

It also read, to me, that she wasn't excluding anyone per se. They were just looking for members who were accepting of the same sex orientation but not necessarily part of it. The only people it excludes are those that aren't. And really every guild/forum/whatever has at least one rule that excludes someone.

It also seemed that Blizzard was taking a rather proactive approach to harassment. "We don't want people to insult you so just pretend you are like everyone else and it will be aces." Now unfortunately there is a double edged sword with not following that policy and this is possibly what their thinking may be. What is someone started a neo-nazi or kkk group. By the same token that allowed the GLBT to recruit through general so could they.

If it was me making the policies, there would be a lot of double standards and I think that is the percarious edge that Blizzard is trying not to fall down but in doing so they already have.

I just finished watching it and I have to say I'm both sad and happy, but a bit more sad.

I'm happy that it was even made. Like Joss said, by some miracle we all got together and decided that Firefly shouldn't die. It's always a nice feeling to know that you were able to extend the life of something you loved, even for a moment.

I'm sad because of the deaths of Wash and the Shepard (Who's backstory I was hoping would reveal itself), mostly Wash though as I liked his humor. I'm sad that the movie didn't do well (Though I don't know how well the DVD sales went) and as such we'll probably never see the characters on the screen again. I'm sad because for all rights I should be holding Season two in my hands but we've entered an age where properties aren't given the time to grow.

In the end though, I'm happy because the movie was great.

433  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Finally thinking about a laptop [Updated again New Company] on: January 04, 2006, 12:04:12 AM
Didn't even notice you guys kept replying to the thread. Sorry about that.

Reason for not buying a 1500 laptop now and another one later is that I would have two of them in the end. One I would use and one that I would end up giving away. Would rather grab one that is as powerful as possible, run it till it's obsolete, then get a new one. I take a totally different view with a desktop since it's much more upgradable so I don't have to worry about it being inclusive thus I tend to take a more middle ground approach pricewise.

Shying away from the dell. Thinking about going with RockDirect.

Here's what I'm looking at.

Can't decide whether to spend the extra 100 and grab the Athlon FX57 or just go with the 4800. Same with the videocard. Is the 7800 powerfull enough to justify spending more versus the 6800?

If anyone know a laptop seller, that uses non mobile AMD64, in the states that lets you customize let me know as I'm going to end up spending about a 100 just for shipping as well.

436  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Narnia = very cool! on: December 31, 2005, 01:42:05 PM
Quote from: "stiffler"
Is the Death Gate series the one by Weis and Hickman?  I have all of those in a box somewhere.  I wish I could find it because I got the last one just as I was moving.  All in super duper hardcover.  I enjoyed buying them but never read them.  You've given me reason to seek them out!  What exactly are they about?  I remember a dragon on the cover and a PC game tie-in.

Of course that could be an entirely different series you are talking about in which case this will be a very odd reply.


That's the one. I guess a short synopsis would be that there were two elder races that ruled over the lower races (Elves, Humans, etc.). The two fought and one was sent to a living prison. Slowly some managed to escape wanting revenge but found that the other race was no longer there and the lower races now ruled themselves. One set out to find what happened to the other race.
There's more to it but that should hopefully jog your memory.

438  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Narnia = very cool! on: December 31, 2005, 01:01:05 AM
I'll admit to my memory being a bit vague but the only truly violent act I remember was when Jadis stabbed Edmund. Even then I don't recall it being shown. Would rank the violence up there with The Incredibles. If your kids were ok with that then they'll be fine here.

I really hope that this movie has done well enough to warrent more as this is my favorite series of books in front of the Death Gate series and Harry Potter.
