Did I see the diner scene from Pulp Fiction in there?

I'll also echo what Wonderpug said about being tempted to grab this now.

525  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / We don't know Jack (Thompson) on: October 15, 2005, 10:40:19 PM
You mean like these:
As the "Man in Miami" for NewsMax.com, he made a series of bizarre allegations [1] regarding Reno, met with incredulity in the press [2] [3], claiming that she was a closet lesbian suffering from various mental disorders as side effects of Parkinson's medication, and that she was being blackmailed by the Mafia.

The Florida Supreme Court ordered that he undergo psychiatric testing during this campaign, which he successfully passed.

More recently, he has attempted to persuade the lawyers defending Dustin Lynch, charged with the murder of JoLynn Mishne, that video games were responsible for the defendant's actions. The lawyers have declined to do so, and Thompson has subsequently offered to defend Lynch for free, presumably in the hope that he may use and thus create credibility behind the "video games defense"

As well as propagating the "video games made me do it" defense, Thompson has also attempted to predict which violent crimes will be caused by specific video games; in the Washington Sniper case, he was the first individual to suggest to the press that video games may have been the source of the sniper's skills, a conjecture vindicated by the discovery of a ubiquitous PlayStation in the van used as a "mobile hideout" by the two men responsible. Dateline NBC reported that Malvo "trained" extensively on the Xbox game Halo. Because of this report, Thompson believes that "Microsoft should be sued and held liable for money damages by the victims of the Beltway Snipers." [6] It is important to note, however, that John Allen Muhammad was a former soldier with significant rifle training, as predicted by the police, and that Lee Boyd Malvo's shooting skills could have easily been the result of instruction by Muhammad.

# He has been commonly accused of, and many times proven to, use half-truths and misinformation to persuade others to accept his views.

# He frequently utilizes ad hominem attacks and slanderous "low blows" against those who disagree with him, as well as simply insulting his detractors, be they politely-worded or otherwise, with a variety of invectives.

# He frequently will either imply or blatantly insult those that express dissenting opinions as being mentally ill, mentally deficient, brain damaged, or on drugs.

# Accusations by him that those he disagrees with suffer from Tourette's syndrome, made without any substantiating proof or even the suggested condition's relevancy to the subject being discussed, are especially common.

# He has ignored individuals who point out factual errors or misstatements made by him and who supply substantiating proof or references, or has responded with the above described behaviors while intentionally failing to acknowledge or respond to the individual's mention of his (Thompson's) errors.

# He has provoked several people who have e-mailed him by telling them that they should enter treatment facilities. When they respond to his comments, he invokes the protection of the Florida Cyberstalker Law and threatened legal action against them. He will not hesitate to threaten legal action against people replying to negative and often hateful emails which he himself sent in the first place.

# He often invokes broad negative stereotypes against gamers in general. For example, in an e-mail correspondence with Scott Ramsoomair, he questions: "HOnestly [sic], are all of you gamers on drugs, or what?"[24]. In a correspondence with Ryan Acheson (Gaming writer for The Horror Channel’s Dread Central), where Ryan Acheson is supporting Thompson's intentions to make games rate M inaccesible to children, he identifies "gamers' ideas" as "the latest oxymoron"

It's really a wonder anyone can take this man seriously anymore. But just like Uwe Boll he somehow manages to find to find work.

I wonder what the prerequisits are for saying "cowboy" rather that "man". Do I have to be smoking a cigarette and wearing chaps? Or does it go much deeper.
Perhaps my daughter could visit me, from college, and bring her wacky dorm resident to get her out of some marriage proposal. Of course I wouldn't like the fellow one bit but would allow him to do some chores so I, and my rather large ranch-hand, could have a good laugh. Maybe after being unable to corral some pigs I could tell him to "cowboy up". And he would, and I could possibly respect him for that.
527  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / We don't know Jack (Thompson) on: October 15, 2005, 11:02:41 AM
I don't even know what cowboy up is supposed to mean. Am I supposed to ride something? Cowboy anything just doesn't make any sense, it's like me telling someone to pickle catch. Neither person knows what you are talking about and feel vaguely dirty afterwords.

Oh Jack Thompson. How can you even speak with your foot so far in your mouth. Why not just say I'm an attention whore and get this over with.

I've forced myself to complete games so I sort of fall into the same catagory. But it wasn't because I paid money for it but because I wanted to see what happens (Gameplay=Ugh Story=Yeah!).
530  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Okay, it's time! Your favorite Calvin pic/ cartoon... on: October 07, 2005, 04:26:49 PM
Besides the afore mentioned Snowmen. Liked the one where they discuss how absurd the world is and the only reason we are sane is because we can laugh (I hope I'm remembering it right).
Also where the dad lost his glasses and Calvin walks in wearing them, with his hair parted neatly to the side, and imitates his father. "I want to you do things you hate because it builds character."

I'm sure there are more and I will be rereading them all when the collection hits my doorstep.

Bill Watterson is one of the very few people who I would like to meet. Not to interview or anything just to shake his hand and say thanks for the wonderful memories during my childhood.

Digital Devil Saga I'm guessing by the title.

I'm with you on the plot point. If you don't want to do a lot of reading/listening/whatever why exactly are you playing a game with a story?
532  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / When will the agony stop? How much longer? Jade Empire... on: October 07, 2005, 04:14:09 PM
It depends on your playstyle, but I would say two maybe three hours. I believe you have two more areas to play.

But it begs the question that if you hate the game this much that you want it to end quickly why exactly are you still playing? Masochistic?

Wasn't Leo on the one done in Canada though (at least when it first started)?  I haven't been keeping tabs on it honestly.  Used to watch TechTV all the time and I hate G4.


That's the version that is going to be broadcast for G4. They will still tape it up there, with Leo.

Quote from: "Rage"
I don't think I have ever seen a show on G4 or any of the other "game" channels-actually scratch that, I have seen parts of them and they were so incredibly awful I have never tried again. Is this show really any good?


It was a tech show that used to be on TechTv before it became G4TechTv and then just G4. People would call in with any kind of tech related problem (It didn't have to be about computers) and Leo would try to solve them for the caller. They also did segments on software/hardware, not in the this video card gets 5 more fps sense more like here's a camera or a tvdvd recorder.

A good suggestion to see what the show is sort of like, minus the reviews, would be to check out Leo's KFI podcast. Through iTunes (Search for Leo Laporte or tech guy) or just copy the url from here to whatever podcast software you might have.
539  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / I'm both sad and happy. on: August 27, 2005, 12:59:03 AM
I'm sure most of you know by now, but for those that don't, Call for Help is coming back on the air for us Americans. It's still going to be filmed in Canada and then broadcast down here.

The sad part, it's on G4. The channel I only stop at if Icons, X-Play, or sometimes Cinematec is on. I'm not sure on the specifics as to why they went back to the network that kicked them out in the first place, but have a feeling it's related to money somehow. Maybe G4 wants to get back the audience they abandoned only a few months ago.

Anyway it's starting on Monday at 8amPT/11amET, so of course no one will be able to see it. And the repeat is on at an even worse time. Curse you G4!

I can remember back when they were just shorts and she always got killed at the end.
I do remember the female agents putting some kind of small canister in their back. I assumed it was some sort of drug. Does anyone remember what exactly it was.

Maybe the next movie will be The Maxx.

549  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need helping with changing sleep pattern to graveyard shift on: June 25, 2005, 11:10:59 PM
It's hard at times. Even if you manage to get 8 hours of sleep you are still tired when you get home.

You really only have three options if you still want to get that recommended sleep.
Sleep when you get home, before you go to work, or a combination of the two.

Yours is a tricky shift though. If you get 8 hours sleep that only leaves 4 hours with your family. Though you have to take away for the travel time and however long it takes you to get ready for work.

To be honest you're screwed. You either have to live with the fact that you will barely see your family on work days or slowly kill yourself by not getting enough sleep. In which case on your days off your body will try to compensate by sleeping more.

Welcome to graveyard.

Regardless of whether he would live a week or a year, insurance companies should do everything they can to help this person (Or anyone really). We pay for the service and then are told that you must jump through these hoops and maybe we'll pay half if at all. One of the biggest scams IMO.

555  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Jade Empire: No Heart? on: May 06, 2005, 07:36:51 PM
Haven't not played it yet I'm wondering if comparing it to KOTOR is fair. Maybe the reason it doesn't have "heart" compaired to their previous game was because we already had so much background (in KOTOR) to start with, so you were more vested versus Jade. But again I'm just guessing here.

560  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Looking for a printer on: April 18, 2005, 08:43:04 PM
I'm almost out of paper and would like to replace my old tractor feed printer with a new one. While I don't print a whole lot, when I do I usually do about 200 pages.
Here are my needs:
At least 10 ppm with 20+ being ideal
B&W not color/Mostly text with pictures being limited to logos
Trey (Cassette) loaded versus it being fed from outside the printer
600x600dpi min Mines running at 180x180 for what little speed I can get, but I don't really need a high amount.
No more than $200

A quick search through NewEgg brings up a couple that could be acceptible.
Here and here.
I'm leaning towards the Samsung simply because it is so cheap but there might be something I'm not seeing with the Brother that would make it more desirable.

Thoughts?
