What a coincidence that CrayolaSmoker's picture, and mine, fit together so perfectly.
562  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ***EA Signs exclusive deal with ESPN*** :'[ on: January 18, 2005, 01:53:49 AM
Not really surprised by the move. I could never understand why ESPN had a show with EA's name in it while they were working with Sega.

565  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.

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.

573  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.

575  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%?

Yeah, it's an enjoyable movie.. but not anything near worth the kind of weird dedication some people have to it.


Kinda like Star Wars.
581  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.

/\/\ I think that one was posted way back in the GG days. It would be nice to read the story behind it.

It certainly depends on where you live. If there a decent amount of compitition then the prices will be lower in some stores. Around here though you would be lucky to break the 17 dollar price point.

It's good to see someone put Garrys Mod to the only real use it has.
586  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / There's a part of me that wants to see what happens on: January 03, 2005, 12:38:19 AM
A few days ago my microwave decided to kill everyone. Basically what happens when I start it is that after a couple seconds it is filled with a orange light and makes sounds like it has foil in it.

Common sense tells me that I should just toss it and forget all about it, and yet there's a part of me that wants to put it in the middle of the yard and see what happens after a couple minutes. Maybe I can become a super-hero if I stand in front of it.
587  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / HL2 Level Help Thread on: December 28, 2004, 07:08:50 PM
It really isn't like the first game where you turn a corner and there he is. This time around he is much more content to pull the strings from a distance. Which probably has to do with the fact that he sent you there, and has a vested interest, versus just watching what you were doing.

I only saw him once (Red Barn) and didn't realize that until I went here. Minor to Major Spoilers. If you stick with just the pictures on the top you should be fine.

I've been saving quite a few of these. And thanks to a partition crash lost a few as well. If anyone has a picture of all the DC superheroes playing poker (I believe it had the Wonder Twins making out in the back) I would appreciate it.

Wonder if those guys did the Scion commercial as well.

I kept thinking that I'm watching some sort of live action Prince of Persia.

Thankfully, for my wallet, I've been able to curb my DVD purchases to a trickle. Just Gargoyles Season 1 this week. Only other sets I'm probably going to be buying next is LOTR and the Invader Zim house set.

I've always wondered why they change the name of the company wether you are on the east or west coast. East has Hellmans and Hardees, West has Best Foods and Carl's Jr.

Did Kontraband basically take over for the other commercial site (Can't remember the name right now) that went down a couple years ago?
595  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prince of Persia: Warrior Within Reviewed on: November 29, 2004, 01:02:03 AM
I don't know about anyone else here but all I wanted was the same game with a different story. Maybe add a few new moves but leave the rest alone. But no, they had to screw with a good thing. Hope KOTOR2 doesn't end up this way.

Oh well, there's 50 I don't have to spend.

597  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Unscrewed cancelled, TSS "morphing". on: November 12, 2004, 11:31:26 PM
I think the reason Adam had to speak so fast was because Alex kept interupting him. He would start to bring something up and Alex would take him down a different road.

While I can't say that I will stop watching G4, I'm pretty sure that whatever TSS becomes, my day will not be planned around it like it was. Like most people I hated Alex but after a while you started to understand his humor, which was the biggest part he brought to the table, and eventually accepted him as a co-host. Did I like every new show? No, I didn't, but they still showed some interesting segments.

G4/Comcast are losing a lot of good people and I hope they realize the mistake they made before more people are given a 4 hour notice.
598  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Which hard drive to buy on: November 09, 2004, 01:09:55 AM
I'm looking to replace a hard drive and add an external storage (Grabbing an external case - firewire) as well. Right now I'm looking at two Seagate 200GB drives but I figured I'd run it by you guys as well.

Having been out of the loop concerning hard drives for a while now, is Seagate a good brand or should I look into something else?

600  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Hard drive recovery on: November 05, 2004, 09:00:14 PM
After reformating and installing XP again my secondary drive (IBM Deskstar - Before all the problem they had) isn't being recognized. I've run EasyRecovery but the files it lists do not include everything on the drive. Not to mention losing the file names.
I'm thinking the MBR or a TOC somehow was corrupted. Is there any way I can restore the drive temporarily so I can transfer everything off it and replace it with a new drive?
