do they make you load all the lost odyssey discs before you can play?  if so, that's just lazy stupidity right there.

No, you can put any/all of them on the drive.  Up to you.

Outrage deflated.

damn, now i have to go find something else not worth getting worked up about to get worked up about...

still, it's good to know this for certain.

Consider yourself hired.

i accept the position, for the good of humanity.

i accept stacks of unmarked $20 bills as payment.  i will purchase one new hammer for each 're-adjustment', or one can be provided for me.

yeah, it's a mix of every system, but it's pretty easy to guess that cheaper copies of a game would be the ps2/wii version and the console versions. 

of course, the code stacks with any other codes you have and you can use it on anything you have rented out now.
8406  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Gamefly's $10 off deal on: November 25, 2008, 07:06:45 PM
they just sent me an email with a $10 off code for any game over 30 bucks.  only good until the first though.  if you have their service, check your email.

any game over 30 before discounts is eligible so you can theoretically get a game for a decent chunk under 20 bucks.  pretty good deal if you ask me.

I believe they got entangled in legal briefs.

do they make you load all the lost odyssey discs before you can play?  if so, that's just lazy stupidity right there.  and sadly, one that i was planning on loading up.  yeah, the 120gb drive will hold it, but damn that's a huge chunk of space right there.

the scenarios sound pretty kick ass too, but i wish the main quest extension was first, not last.
8417  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New Xbox Experience on: November 25, 2008, 01:27:52 AM
eurogamer has a great article comparing hdd loads against disc loads. 

they found some great results (hl2) and some minimal ones, and also saw where developers have implemented great 'shadow loading' procedures, ie load the level while the cinematic loads (gow2) to surprisingly worse load times (halo 3). 

sadly, no great increase was made when it came to Elevator Riding Extreme aka mass effect.

OK, so I got my Netflix rental today, and started watching it.  within the first 10 minutes we have a pretty funny scene about Islam and then a bit later we get to see Dave Foley... complete with full frontal nudity  eek

I'll watch more after my eyes grow back.

no wonder it only released in 4 theaters. 

i had completely forgotten about this mess until i saw it listed in the on-demand section. 

so, how bad was it in the end?

I can agree that DHP has more impact, but after about 10 minutes it didn't affect me anymore.

me either, and at times, i almost thought it was him.   not saying he did a bad job or anything, but dhp's voice fits the character perfectly.  coincidentally, just like his "brother" did for Beast in x-men 3.

what's stupid about the whole thing is i don't remember it being this obvious in cod 1.  it had some awful moments at higher difficulties, (russian level in the building surrounded by tanks), but you weren't always the "one man in the army worth" anything/killing either.

We would be frustrated to still be in Afghanistan, but the American people would accept it much better than what has gone on with Iraq.

There would still be saber rattling towards Iraq but with Iran getting the bomb? both Iraq and the US would be looking at them.

Bush would be leaving the presidency dis-liked by the left but still with some respect. McCain may have won the presidency.

this sounds perfectly reasonable.  bush's approval rating wouldn't be approaching single digits. 

i have to wonder, how would this have affected the current economic crisis?  slowdown in housing market would still have occurred but would not big enough to drag down the big banks. 

biggest change would be not looking a dem controlled legislative branch though.

wife and i saw this last night, and while it was pretty good, i felt it came off more like a harry potter meets m.i.b. and it wasn't written as well.  the story took some detours a little too far, and the whole spear point business fell flat.  i also miss the extra cast that were in hb1 and that niles crane didn't voice abe this time.  it all felt like they had to cut out too much and picked up some of the threads while dropping the more important ones. 

i did like the story sequence though;  the animation style was pretty cool and i would watch a feature length film using it.

not only is veteran a ridiculously stupid exercise in "how high can you get your blood boiling", but hardened is almost as bad.  i have been trudging through the sp on hardened and it's easily taking me 1.5 times as long to get past.  areas like the sniper battle in stalingrad took half a night to get past due to the ai's one shot kill vs my two hits plus his instantly knowing exactly where i was at all times bs.  the pacific mission with you in the trenches and a flamethrower was also pretty puzzle-like as you had to know in advance where the enemy would pop up.  on top of that, the ai always exhibits two flaws.  enemies target you over your buddies whenever possible, even when you are 1/10th exposed as they are, and your buddies take 5x as many rounds to kill anyone, even an enemy in open cover. 

if i hadn't already committed to 2/3rds of the campaign, i would be restarting on normal.  i won't bother with veteran unless i get the need to scream insanities at a tv screen and replace a controller.
