i was about to post this in the pc forum too.  there's also a note that the xmas sale begins on 12/20. 
achievement related entries are retro active so everyone should already have at least one for the avatar pic.  plus you get hats for TF2 if you are into that sort of thing.

Bobehm and I were discussing this morning... from what we can gather he probably whispered in Rick's ear that...

Spoiler for Hiden:
his wife is pregnant. It'd fit with them all taking blood tests, right? By the way, I checked your blood test and your wife came back pregnant. It also fits with his whole line of "This is the humane thing to do".

I really can't believe I have 11 more months to wait for the next season.

That actually crossed my mind this morning.  And to make matters worse...

Spoiler for Hiden:
...what if the baby is Shane's?

best not to read the books then. 

in fact, i would avoid them for now as while they are good, they also veered off quite a bit at the end of season 1 and if they go back to the script as it were, it will be much better tv for those of you who haven't read it.  wait until the show is done and then go back to see what you missed/what was changed.

Re the Season Finale. Talk about...
Spoiler for Hiden:
...ending with a BANG!!!!!!!!!  icon_eek icon_smile

yeah, while it is no way near what the books ended the first volume with, i have to hand it to them for writing it in such a way that it could have been a series finale.  it reminds me of the last scene in 28 weeks later; haunting, sobering and lasting.

the final act is definitely plausible considering the agency involved.  in fact, i would be surprised if something like that wasn't already in place. 

now, the little quirks weren't too bad, even though the test subject reveal was easily guessed at early on, it only underlined how little hope he had left. 

damn it's going to be hard to wait for the next season.

I fell in love with Galaxy on Fire over Thanksgiving. Totally old schoolnspace trading/fighting sim. Takes about an hour to open up the galaxy. The galaxy is freaking huge too. Repetitive to be sure but so were these games back in the day. Lots of fun and free at the moment.

Galaxy on Fire 2 is so much better in so many ways.  I liked the first one, but the second one is really fantastic.

picked up both today and i agree, even on a lowly 3g iphone where the lack of power stands out more.  the game just feels more fleshed out and less like a 1st gen gameloft rip-off.
6809  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Prototype on it's way? on: December 06, 2010, 04:58:53 AM

Quote from: Teggy on December 05, 2010, 11:32:25 PM

There was fun to be had in Prototype, but I liked Infamous more. I don't remember it too well, but what stuck with me was the repetitive nature of side missions. Flying was fun, and stealing tanks (and mowing down pedestrians  ninja) and helicopters added to the firepower factor. They definitely have an opportunity to improve some of the issues in the sequel, but we'll see if they go the way of Assassin's Creed or The Force Unleashed.

mowing down pedestrians was fun, but towards the end it just got a little too dynasty warriors-ish with the standard grunts.  and going through crowds of civvies or infected just felt like a reason to show off the designers "really wicked blood splatter effects".  side missions were pretty bad though.  way too stingy with the time limits and not a lot of variety. 
6810  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: AC: Brotherhood - impressions and full review! on: December 06, 2010, 04:55:10 AM
what about the whole "russia during the revolution" theme they went with in the comic?  i do think with everything they've pointed to during the subject 16 stuff that a founding fathers as templars would be next in line.  it would be pretty kick ass too as you would still want to use the old ways rather than rely on firearms.  it's not like the hand cannon is all that useful anyways. 

i wouldn't mind the russian angle though, especially during the winter months.  could make for some very interesting chases.

FYI, the entire first season of Star Blazers is available to buy on Amazon VOD for around $6.  Last time I looked, the actual DVD set was over $100.

Yup, its one pricey series - new copies of the 1st season sell for $130 at the cheapest retailer in my area. As much as I like it, I don't think it's the best series for it's genre. When you can get Crest of the Stars, it's Banner of the Stars sequels, Planetes or Nadesico for less than $50 at most stores in my area, I can't say I recommend it often to friends.
I'm not sure if Amazon.ca has VOD, but I'm going to check into it.
yeah, a wee bit expensive.

just for reference, here's the link for the VOD

now that i have a bd player that supports amazon vod, this kicks ass.

if i do get a chance to play on the old console or the pc, it will either be one of the random puzzle games i now have from the steam sale or more ACB.

i suppose now that i am ps3-less i have to at least give it a look now.  (i much more preferred infamous over prototype).

6819  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Bank gave my Mom counterfit money on: December 05, 2010, 05:25:53 AM
it's hard to side with the bank when it's fighting elderly, so i would go to the media if you get the run-around.  i hate to go that route, but as the bank has very little to trust you on, they upper management will be hesitant to believe you without some form of proof.  even with a good video of her and knowing who the teller was, they will be suspicious of her story, and yours too for that matter.  tbh, they have no reason to trust you vs anyone else who would claim the same thing as i wouldn't put it past a shady person to involve family in such a way.  that doesn't give them the instant out though, and it might be better for their image to take the fake and just play nice.  now, if they have had more than one incident involving the same teller, they will be more likely to believe her and will treat this as an internal problem.

one thing that shouldn't trouble you is the receipt though.  if she knows about when she went, they will have the record of that transaction and who handled it. 

good luck and don't give up.

I bought it but iam a sucker for puzzle type games, as my steam list would attest to. So far , it's pretty much like the demo with more challenging puzzles. It let's you pick from a few different ones at a time, so you aren't locked in if you get stuck. Overly cute but you could just blast metal while you play.

hard to pass up the air pack but i already have two of the 5 and the other 3 are not exactly screaming buy to me.

ended up with this:

Indie Puzzle Pack - $5
Indie Pulse Pack - $5
Indie Clever Pack - $5
Indie Story Pack - $5
Left 4 Dead 2 - 6-Pack - $25
Indie Energy Pack - $5
Alpha Protocol - $7.50

so 57.50 for 26 (minus 5 i already had on steam or elsewhere) games plus 6 gifts. 

not bad and nothing compared to last year's xmas sale.  i expect that to be murderous on my wallet.
