I found ToV to be one of the best RPGs for the 360 with Lost Odyssey being my other. Characters are generally likeable and not annoying, plot is decent, enjoyable combat system. RPG development elements aren't too in depth, but it didn't affect the enjoyment for me.

On it's way for a bday gift for a friend... looking forward to invading his basement.

Thanks. Yeah, now I'm just trying to decide what to do with the extended service deal. I can cancel it any time in the next 55 days or whatever with full refund. I basically got it for $1500 with $0 deductible. Should I just keep it at this point, cancel and worry about it when my regular warranty is ending, or or look around for a better price before deciding? Extended warranty is for through 10y/100k with Resource Automotive/The Warranty Group. Keep in mind regular Hyundai warranty covers the powertrain through 10y/100k.

Angel was another show with a drastically cut budget in it's 5th season, which I consider the best.

I shouldn't take it as my backlog is too big... but if no one has taken it in a week let me know and I will.
1447  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Looking for new car... (sedans) on: May 16, 2009, 08:40:53 PM
FYI, I ended up getting the Sonata (Limited trim). Just could get the most features that I wanted and best trim for the money right now, though I did really like the Mazda6. We got talked into the extended warranty which I probably should have shopped around for externally, but it'll be nice to have that 10 year (transferrable) deal. Thanks for all the ideas guys!

Despite the articles saying it is new and not Windows, Unix, or Linux... if you look around on the web it is actually basically a modified version of FreeBSD.
1449  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Books Read in 2009 on: May 13, 2009, 02:10:45 AM
I just read through the Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson, and if you're looking for a new fantasy series to read I highly recommend it. He's a newer author and doesn't have many books, but both this series and the standalone book Elantris are great. I was most impressed with how the series ended up tying all sorts of details from the book and the mythology of the book together.

On another note, I saw one or two of you read the Kevin Anderson/Brian Herbert Dune books. FYI, Kevin's Saga of the Seven Suns series is a great scifi epic series.

Contacting my Hyundai dealorship to see if their listed prices are including the current Sonata rebate or not. If not I'll definitely have to give it a look as I'd be crazy not to. FYI, for anyone looking Ford Fusion has a huge rebate right now on 2009s (I think it was $3500) and Camry has $1500 too. The Sonata's is $3000 and my closest dealor's site has the basic ones listed at $13000... that alone isn't bad, but if I would actually get $3000 off too...
1451  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Looking for new car... (sedans) on: May 11, 2009, 07:32:56 PM
Yeah, all 3 are manufactured here. The Mazda6 is made in a joint Mazda/Ford plant in Michigan.
1452  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Looking for new car... (sedans) on: May 11, 2009, 01:14:00 AM
So the consensus is that all the cars in that class are fine  icon_razz
1453  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Looking for new car... (sedans) on: May 10, 2009, 01:16:26 PM
Yeah, I know the new Malibu's are supposed to be nice, but my current car is a 98 Malibu that's had all sorts of problems. I know they're all new and re-designed and such, but I still have that background so I don't want to get one this go around in any case.
1454  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Looking for new car... (sedans) on: May 10, 2009, 04:28:42 AM
So, I'm looking for a new sedan and have basically narrowed it down to the Accord, Camry, and Mazda6. In my area with recent sales I figure I can expect to get the low level trims for around $18-20k (Accord - sale dependent e.g. 18k deal is mothers day sale), 16-17k (2009 Camry with current rebate - possibly even 15.5k in next week), 17.5k (Mazda6 - assuming recent cash back deals return in a month or two, 18.7 otherwise). All seem pretty nice and comparable. (Prices are internet prices and could potentially still be lowered with haggling, though all are below theoretical invoice price).

Positives for me:
Accord - seemed smooth, reliable, nice all-around, standard speakers seemed a tad better
Camry - price, reliable, test drive felt smooth
Mazda6 - most comfortable seats in test drive, largest trunk, nice turns/sportiness, different (not a camry or accord)

Negatives for me:
Accord - smaller trunk, found the seats less comfy
Camry - VSC is extra, trunk on smaller side, my wife has an older model so it'd be a bit boring, trunk carpets didn't seem to fit right
Mazda6 - acceleration less smooth, reliability less certain

Thoughts?

1456  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Would You Buy a house within 5 Miles of a Nuclear Power Plant? on: May 03, 2009, 03:02:50 PM
I wouldn't be too worried personally as long as it's a better deal/fit. Chances are a helluva lot higher you'll have a car accident than anything will happen to you due to the plant. But it's a personal decision on how much you'd have it in the back of your mind.

I need to re-read Arena sometime... not all of the Magic books were winners, but I used to love that one.

What was the deal for infinite undiscovery? Was that $12 shipped? If so I'm interested.
1458  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The best fighting game ever is coming to XBL/PSN this summer! on: April 28, 2009, 02:46:54 AM
I used to have this on Dreamcast, one of the reasons I miss it. Since the game is freakin impossible to find (without paying an arm and a leg) this will be one of the few xbox originals actually worth the $15.

Rain check meaning what exactly... if they have it later we can get it, or we have to somehow reserve?
1460  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Benders Game on Comedy Central tonight on: April 26, 2009, 11:32:43 PM
I thought the films were pretty dissapointing for Futurama, but better than most shows nonetheless. I'd rather see it return in episodic format, whether on tv or via dvds.
1461  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: RIP Bea Arthur dead at 86 on: April 26, 2009, 09:11:55 PM
I wonder if Deadpool will do anything for this (makes sense if you read his comics...).
1462  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBL] 1 vs 100 on: April 26, 2009, 08:55:39 PM
But I would have to crush you all and you would be forced to weep as you confront your ineptitude in the shadow of my grandeur.
1463  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Best Buy $10 game sale on: April 26, 2009, 08:26:53 PM
Was hoping for Inifinite or Devil May Cry, but I ended up with Pure as they didn't have those. Great deal for $10 though smile.

I may theoretically join in a minute...

To each his own, but I liked Fallout 1 & 2 better than 3. Sure the graphics and some gameplay elements are older, but I thought the story, quests and humor were a steap ahead of the most recent iteration.

I don't have the expansion or full packaging, but do have Warcraft 3. Would be happy to trade for Assasin's Creed. Let me know.
1473  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Unusuals on: April 09, 2009, 03:26:00 AM
Watched it... alright I guess but nothing too awesome thus far. At least it set up some interesting things for a continuing storyline as opposed to just being episodic.

Hmm, I'm tempted to buy the Rascal Flatts album... but I'm dissapointed by the $4.99 pricepoint for a MP3 Daily Deal so I'll hold off.

1476  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: WTF? on: April 05, 2009, 01:39:21 PM
Yeah, the past week or two have been horrible. Don't know if it's the economy, random chance or what, but it's no good.

Not too much happened in the last five minutes, but yeah I guess you should see it at this point! Overall I was expecting a bit more, but it was still nice and tied up a couple things nicely. Good to see everyone and such. Always good to see Carter. As you said, it was pretty classis ER.
1479  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Question about shopping for a first mortgage on: April 02, 2009, 08:49:49 PM
Yeah, you should be able to talk to bank people and get an estimate or pre-approval or something. I presume you can do so for free but I'm not sure as I don't remember the process that well.

Daming, how did I miss Shatner!  Ceekay, you need to post at like 6 in the morning to make sure I don't miss it and forget to check again at night.
