Where do you find the profiles?
1522  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: XIII the mini series on: February 11, 2009, 10:24:44 PM
Any more impressions before I devote an hour and a half to this?

Read
[/i]Note, I rejoined SFBC recently so am reading through a lot of 3-in-1 type books[/i]

Mistborn, Well of Ascension, Hero of Ages - Brandon Sanderson (*****) GREAT series

All of the Jim Butcher - Dresden Files series (*****)

Elantris - Brandon Sanderson (*****)  - Great book, looking forward to the Mistborn series
Daemon - Daniel Suarez (** 1/2) - Very interesting concept and some nice twists, but first time author is evident

Also note economies of scale have occurred so movies can be shown for less than the increase in inflation over the years.
1525  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What are you doing with your tax refund? on: February 10, 2009, 02:35:03 AM
Still waiting for the accountant wife to figure it out (our taxes are complicated this year). Will let you know when I find out if I lose or get money...
1526  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Holy crap. I just realized it's been 10 years since I joined GoneGold. on: February 10, 2009, 12:45:13 AM
Hmm, now I'm going to have to figure out when I joined GG...

On a side note... Blackjack, I think I was actually at the Nox event in Virginia with a friend too (if it was in Northern Virginia)! I wasn't the OGR guy but that was the only release event like that I've been to. It was actually a pretty fun, if limited, game.
1527  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Overlord 2 on: February 09, 2009, 02:51:28 AM
The first one is on its was via goozex, so we'll see how that goes.
1528  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Michael Cera flips out on: February 08, 2009, 04:37:44 PM
Whiteboy... not sure where you saw that

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/01/29/arrested-development-movi_n_162156.html

Multiple similar reports from a week ago where Cera was still the only hold-out.
1529  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: LF: HOMM V + Star Trek games on: February 08, 2009, 04:33:42 PM
Don't have those, but I could be interested in Sam and Max season 1.
1530  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 3 more days til HALO wars demo on: February 08, 2009, 04:32:56 PM
I was unsure on this but all I see is positive buzz. Doubt I'll get it this week as I have a small backlog, but I'll definitely grab it sometime in the next couple months.
1531  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Michael Cera flips out on: February 08, 2009, 02:59:46 AM
I'm still annoyed at Cera for holding out on the proposed Arrested Development movie when everyone else has signed on.
1532  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Most underrated 360 game in your opinion on: February 07, 2009, 12:44:05 AM
I'm only a little ways into it, but I'm really enjoying Naruto: Rise of a Ninja. I haven't seen that discussed much on the forums, but it's worth a play.
1533  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Best fighting game for 360 on: February 05, 2009, 09:29:23 PM
I've enjoyed all of the games mentioned. They're all in long-running series and you basically should know what to expect from each of them.
1534  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Super Bowl XLIII on: February 02, 2009, 03:38:33 AM
Great game. I can't believe they didn't put that final fumble to the booth though. I certainly thought it moved forward from Warner's momentum, it was at least worth a review.
1535  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Amazon MP3 Daily Deal (keep it updated!) on: February 01, 2009, 05:48:40 PM
Sweet, grabbed the motown one... been meaning to get some oldies for my playlist so this was a cheap way to grab some good ones.
1536  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Red Alert 3 Impressions on: February 01, 2009, 02:20:13 AM
I haven't tried skirmish... but I could be up for trying some time...
1537  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Bloodbowl - Warhammer/American football/fantasy football on: January 31, 2009, 03:47:04 PM
I used to play the Games Workshop game, and I loved the faithful turn-based pc game from back in the day. Assuming the reviews aren't horrible I'll definitely pick this up.
1538  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: It's Tax Time! on: January 29, 2009, 04:27:49 AM
I think ours will be close this year... wife has to work it out (she's an accountant). Fingers are crossed though!
1539  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Duels of the Planeswalkers on: January 26, 2009, 02:02:45 AM
The deck-building question is my main holdout right now. IGN's hands on preview didn't seem sure how that was going to be working...
1540  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Duels of the Planeswalkers on: January 25, 2009, 03:00:20 PM
I haven't played MTG in years, but I would totally pick this up on arcade as a cheap way to play some again.
1541  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Outlander..a Chris roberts movie..ya the Wing Commander guy on: January 18, 2009, 04:11:53 AM
Hey, it obviously wasn't great, but I still found the WC movie enjoyable. Could have used some Hammill though... I do agree though, I wish they'd get back to making some games as the genre could really use the help. Too bad Digital Anvil only laster a couple years.
1542  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wheelman on: January 15, 2009, 04:59:40 PM
Anyone have any more insights into this? Looks like it could be fun and the couple comments I've seen from people with advance review copys were positive. I haven't seen much buzz for it though.
1543  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: My girlfriend snores... on: January 08, 2009, 04:03:15 AM
I like fans too, but I don't have a ceiling fan unfortunately. We have a noismaker thing, but it just doesn't make the right pitch to cancel out the noises...
1544  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: movie - Street Fighter IV The Legend of Chun Li on: January 07, 2009, 10:19:12 PM
The main problem is I just don't think I can buy her as a martial arts expert... that said, I'll at least give it a go on netflix if I don't see it in the theater. I too enjoyed the campy Dead or Alive movie despite its many many flaws.
1545  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: My girlfriend snores... on: January 07, 2009, 10:16:20 PM
Anyone have suggestions for some really comfortable ear plugs? I am a super light sleeper and even loud breathing will drive me nuts if I'm awake. I sometimes end up in the other room from my wife, and it's pretty sad since it is just breathing...
1546  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Big 360/PS3 game sale at Best Buy 1/11 on: January 07, 2009, 01:21:36 AM
in for ng2 if it's true. Should be able to resell for that if I don't like it...
1547  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / 360 games FS/FT on: December 29, 2008, 05:54:37 PM
I have some older games available for trade or sale. Most interested in trading as a bunch for a newer game, but if not would trade for other games or sell cheaply.

Stranglehold
Conan
Viva Pinata (the original)
Tiger Woods 2007

While I'd have to discuss with the wife, Viva Pinata: Party Animals, and Lego Star Wars Trilogy (4-6) could be available as well.

Nuts, ordered a couple weeks ago from deepdiscount, though the price was still pretty good, nowhere near that.

Sigh, haven't checked the site in a couple days and missed it.
1550  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Smallville Season 8 (spoilers inevitable) on: November 17, 2008, 03:51:57 AM
Haven't been watching due to grad school. Does WB post the episodes online?
1551  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: F/S: Fallout 3 (360) - PRICE DROP on: November 17, 2008, 03:49:37 AM
I would have, but it's on my bday/christmas list so I can't buy it  icon_frown

1557  Gaming / Analog Gaming / Re: Warhammer 40k: Assault on Black Reach on: November 06, 2008, 09:31:16 PM
I used to play Fantasy Battles, Bloodbowl, Necromunda, and a bit of 40k. Loved it. Hopefully I'll get some of my friends now to start...
1558  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GHWT or Rock Band 2 on: November 06, 2008, 12:56:50 PM
Wow. I'd been learning GHWT since I thought the drums were supposed to be better and I likes the song list a bit more, but the sentiment here seems to be pretty overwhelmingly in RB2's favor.

Thankfully in regards to the note chart my wife plays med-hard and I play med, so that's at least a bit less of an issue. Well, unless i hear a compelling argument for GH (I'm still listening) I'll probably go GHWT.

~ Tim
1559  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GHWT or Rock Band 2 on: November 05, 2008, 12:21:22 PM
Given that my wife and I do not have a drum kit or mic (only have previous GH games), which should we get for Christmas? We could always end up with both games, but definitely only want the instruments from one.
1560  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Comics] When will I learn? on: October 28, 2008, 03:11:35 AM
Well, if you do post them, I'll take a look. I'm doing comics, but my pull-list is only like 6 or 7 issues a month now, so it's not demanding too much money. Plus I still buy some tpbs. Of course my comic art collection is more pricey... although I've been good and selling things as of late in case I make any big future purchases.
