561  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Welcome to Klamath Falls, see the sights and kill yourself on: February 15, 2005, 12:09:50 AM
What I always found odd was that I just don't see myself moving from here. Not because I can't just that I never felt the need.

This city sure has become a gathering point for wackjobs lately. First we have this guy, then the one that came down from Washington killing a cop and tow truck driver on the way, a suicide at my works' parking lot, and a guy who raped and killed a couple of nuns.

It sure is great to live in this city.

I can very much understand. Given the two choices I would go with the box almost every time. Not for the trade in possibility but just because I collect them for whatever reason (I keep mulling over the idea of layering a wall with my favorites). I can also certainly understand your frustration, especially when the freaken thing was supposed to be free, with even getting the box to you. You've fought this much longer than I would've. At some point I would have just thrown up my arms in disgust and downloaded the damn thing, making sure to back it up before doing anything else. That kind of frustration just adds me to the legions of people that just don't bother buying a product just because it comes with some sort of rebate.

I also hope you aren't expecting anything significant as far as the box goes. You get, now follow me here because it's a lot of stuff, five CDs and a quick reference card. That's it unless you count the box art that has one of the three characters on it. All in all it's a waste of resources for a whole bunch of nothing.


Which can be said of any game though, from that point of view.  Now if I want to trade later, could I trade the steam version?  I'd rather get a tangible item to store on my shelf, or trade later.


Yes you could, as I've done it. I ended up giving the guy my username and password which let him download the game before he received the box. And the only real reason I bought the box version was because I got it for cheaper than through Steam.

Unless something is new it was never stated that Loki has any logs to go through, merely that he was ordered to hand them over. Then there are the people that claim that the site took the 40+k to pay off the MPAA.

Going through the website it looks like your beef should be with ATI not Valve. Unless you are blaming Valve for making you get the physical CD from ATI because of your hatred of Steam. And even if Ati aren't the ones physically sending you the cds wouldn't it be Vivendi that deals with the boxed product?

He decided it was a good idea to carry a "real" gun into the school, on his person, and even worse, to brag to another student about it?


But it wasn't a real gun. He realized that when he saw it up close. The only person claimed it looked real was the principal.

Ha ha, found it. And another nice one from these guys.
571  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need music recommendations on: January 25, 2005, 09:49:03 PM
I work at Fred Meyer as a price changer. Every Sunday when a new Ad comes out I have about 1000 new price tags that need to be placed. It's a fun activity made even better by the fact that since there is no crowd sound at midnight you can hear the same songs being played night after night in perfect clarity.
572  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need music recommendations on: January 25, 2005, 07:13:59 PM
Every Sunday, at work, I walk back and forth for about 8 hours and the music helps to keep me going at a set pace. So essentially what I want is something with a fast beat. Was just hoping that there were other bands with a sound similar to Aqua.

Should also note that though Techo, House, whatever, fits the fast beat criteria it tends to blend into itself which isn't what I want.
573  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dreamcast Online on: January 25, 2005, 07:02:56 PM
Had a friend that got Phantasy Star Online in an auction and sure enough he could play it online. I'm not sure it that stands for all the games though.
574  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need music recommendations on: January 25, 2005, 12:33:10 AM
Finally caved in and bought both of Aqua's albums and am now looking for something similar. Something that is as up tempo and bubbly with a female singer.
575  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is PN03 for Gamecube worth a darn on: January 23, 2005, 05:05:22 PM
I would probably pick it up. Just remember even though it looks like a FPS doesn't mean that it is one. Think of it as a shooter (Gradius etc.), and if you like those then this one will be just fine.

582  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Any Art Bell fans? Remember Mel's Hole? (SFW ;)) on: January 15, 2005, 06:04:23 AM
I actually liked the fact that Art never tried (At least when I listened) to refute anyones claims. He would question to get a more complete picture and perhaps reveal the person was full of it. But in general he let the listener decide which in this day and age is refreshing. I'm sure after each show bulletin boards or forums (Whichever were more widespread for the time) would be wild claims for this way or that.
583  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Any Art Bell fans? Remember Mel's Hole? (SFW ;)) on: January 15, 2005, 05:57:33 AM
Well, I just went back over the two albums that I have of theirs and I guess it was from Lateralus. Title was Faaip de Oiad. Apparently the caller later admitted it was a hoax, though it was strange that the satellite went out during the broadcast.

The song I originally thought about was Cearo Summability which is your California breaking into the sea thing.

I still wouldn't mind hearing the full broadcast without all the synth.

I'd be curious if there was anymore correspondence from the freaked out guy that was featured on Tools' album Aenima.

I used to listed to Mr Bell often until he left the first time, then it was hit or miss. Now I can't since I'm working then.

590  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / EB Games Price gouging ?? on: January 13, 2005, 01:09:57 AM
I would think the value of an item depends on the availability of it. If I can order it online, two or three years later, with little to no searching, then no the value is not high. But if that item is very rare then the value raises. Cases in point would be Alpha Centarii (Before re-release), Kilrathi Saga, Symphony of Night. Movies could also fit into this catagory if they had a limited release before the standard.

I've always seen the Collectors Edition to be more for the viewers benefit than their wallets. It's more of a we'll give you everything we have on this movie/game/whatever so you can know more about the mythos behind it.

592  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need some TV recommendations on: January 10, 2005, 10:19:53 PM
I would go with DS9 if you are really into a more character driven plotline versus a reactive one. While I didn't really like the majority of Bajorian stories the series in general doesn't have a high and low point. There is more backstory, and on-going plots, as opposed to say TNG. But just like TNG be prepared to spend the money if you want all 7 seasons.

You might try a mini series called Ultraviolet. I'm hesitent to describe it as a British X-Files but I suppose that's the closest you could get.

I'm four seasons into Buffy and two into Angel and right now I would go with Angel. It didn't have that valley girl feel that Buffy does. Not that BtVS is bad just not as good. Though admittedly I haven't watched either for about a year as I'm waiting for all the seasons to be out.

About the only other Sci-Fi shows that I like are Dark Angel, Forever Knight, Le Femme Nikita, and Stargate SG-1.

In fact it says "Still, I can't help but wonder why one of the finest series of games ever created has left me, one of its biggest fans, behind?"  So if it is one of the finest games why does the twit give it a 70%?

598  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cable Modem Speed on: January 08, 2005, 10:24:33 AM
The question is what speed are you paying for versus what you are getting. If all you want to know is if these are good speeds, then yes.

I'm currently paying for a 3 mb down 256 kb up. What I'm getting currently is 2862/228. It tends to fluctuate and these are best condition speeds. Meaning that most sites I visit or downloads I initiate will not be this fast.
