7081  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.

No.  It is not out, yet.  And they are still aren't any rumours on an actual release date other than "not in 2010."

well that's certainly helpful.  a lot of things are slated to happen "not in 2010", like DNF, crysis 2 and the apocalypse, with any luck, episode 3 will beat that event by a good 6 months or so.

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.

Dead Rising 2 for $30 is sure tempting...

Lost planet 2 for $15 isn't bad either.

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.

7103  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: IGN's Top 10 Gaming Disappointments of 2010 on: November 29, 2010, 07:47:29 AM
totally agree with crackdown 2 and fable 3 to a lesser extent.  had high hopes for the former and was willing to give the whole "good to be the king" game a chance.  instead, rehashed sequel and a game where less somehow equals more.  put simply, i have fable 3 on loan with the chance to get it basically half off and i can't force myself to pull the trigger on it. 

moh wasn't bad, but it definitely didn't hold my attention, sp or mp wise.  it's also my biggest purchase regret of the year.

best solution?  release the docs for free.  it worked for the hd dvd/blu ray encryption key.  once it's gone viral, it's too late to sue out of existence.

plus, the act of seeding the docs via the same torrent sites used to seed the files would be perfectly fitting.

had me worrying there for a moment.

ceekay, have you been able to buy the puzzle pack?  every time i click one of the purchase options, it clears my cart and i end up back at the home page.

of course, it seems i can't buy patrician 4 either.  or the ball, or anything for that matter.

steam, why won't you let me give you my money?

it seems to be working now.  exited and restarted steam a few times.

but somewhat buggy.  i try to purchase it and it dumps me back on the home page with an error message saying they couldn't add the item. 

i'll check back later.

yeah, also bummed they put games that were part of the previous days' indie packs on sale.  

may get patrician 4 as a gift but nothing for me.

while i think it's bad of a supposed news channel to so openly display their bias, i think it's wrong of government agencies to shut them down.  until they start openly advocating to overthrow the government, they have the freedom to speak their opinions.  i just wish they would change their names and not call themselves news channels.  

sharpton just as biased as they are so it's no surprise.  i do appreciate that rockefeller went after both channels though.

Borders carries the issues 1-60 The Walking Dead Compendium for $60 (no doubt miles cheaper on Amazon). Still, I had a 50% off coupon on Friday, and it was tempting, I just figured I'd hold off on that until episodes 5-6 of the show run (even if there are differences, I've kind of enjoyed coming to it fresh).

is there a new compendium?  the only big one I have seen is 1-48, but one containing 1-60 would be awesome.

unless i am mistaken, BJ is off.  amazon still showing the 48 issue book (at a decent price too)

the also have the HD rentals but showing up as free.  might be a great way to test the new blu ray player i got yesterday.

nevermind, it was a trailer.

just the indie pack for me though.

if it let me, that is.  there's no add to cart button for the pulse pack.  you have to go to one of the individual game's pages, then you can get the add button for the pack.  a bit quirky.
