should we gamble that the regular version vs ce version will be more like bioshock and it's impossible to find big daddy figure or more like halo and the cat helmet, aka best buy paying you to take it off their hands?

i wonder if they'll be able to unlock the extra prettiness like the did with crysis.  i hope so as i don't have a dx10 card and i won't be upgrading either.

not good news.  the post makes it look like just europe is getting delayed to the 25th. 

i'd rather have heard that they added some mirrors for creating your account or increase the limit before timing out.

I was able to create a account last night.
It was pretty late, like 2 a.m. so I think the traffic was less at that time.
The whole process kinda sucks though.

i'll try it the next time the little one wakes me up for a bleary-eyed feeding at 0-fuk-it's-dark in the morning.

The reasoning is, just like the PSP (at least in the beginning), you can now software hack your console to do things that the parent company wants you to buy (VC on the Wii, PS1 emulation on the PSP (among other things)).

So on the PC front, you'd say "In-store and online game purchases become completely useless thanks to bittorrent?"

I don't see this new emulator making more than the tiniest of blips on the VC sales.  I think the vast majority of regular VC purchasers will never even hear about this emulator, let alone install it.

but think of the poor souls at nintendo who will make less money because of this! 
8407  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/21) on: April 21, 2008, 05:53:44 PM
persona 3, even though i won't be putting much time into it for some time, but i don't want to chance missing it again.

now that i have gotten a taste of what's so addictive about rogue-likes, i'm interested to hear about the two pokemon games are like.  it might be a good alternative once i get stuck in shiren.

bring on next week already! i'd freeze myself in the newly fallen spring?! snow if there was a chance i could skip a week.

it's cool, but i do all of my retro play on the psp.  portable sega cd ftw.

8410  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: LF: Pikmin 2 (gamecube) on: April 19, 2008, 10:57:46 PM
i got a used copy i paid ~15 for last year at a gamestop.  two, actually, as i was looking for one for someone here.  how's 10 shipped for everything?  i'll have no use for the case, etc, but maybe it will be useful to you.

So today's been a great day so far.

Had waffles for breakfast, had some sex, Bestbuy repaired my tv, called up AT&T Uverse to fix my bill, and to see if they could combine it, and out of nowhere without any asking on my part, they upgraded my internet from 3.0mpbs to 6.0 for free with no expiration or conditions.

Today's been a great day.

until the country song version kicks in and you find out that:

your waffles were made with contaminated eggs and have given you the nastiest case of metalhead's revenge,
your sex partner is also partner with 3 other guys, and you have the clap,
best buy actually caused your tv to break in a week by breaking a small critical piece, and then claim it's not covered, and

at & t gets bought out by comcast, who then go on to bill you for the extra speed you were given while simultaneously dropping it back down to dsl speeds and throttling any traffic other than http.





ie, you had the kind of week i've had.
8414  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Spring has sprung! on: April 18, 2008, 10:28:12 PM
not up here it hasn't.  an hour north of here snow is sticking to the ground.  it's really put a dent into the tulip fields.  this whole week has seen crazy weather.

8416  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MGS4 Release Date on: April 18, 2008, 08:47:31 PM
has anyone been able to create an account since the beta was available?  it has been horribly slow and has the nasty tendency to time out on you, forcing you back to the start.  what makes that worse is when the page timeout period is reached waiting for the previous page to load, meaning as soon as you get to next one you have to go back.  that alone is pissing me off to no end.  i've been able to hit the account creation screen 3 times only to lose it all that way.
8417  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mystery Dungeon: Shiren the Wanderer is coming to a DS near you! on: April 18, 2008, 08:35:52 PM
i grabbed xmann's copy and have already died 3 times, once to a monster house early on and two times because i was running it bare and had nothing equipped.  it's pretty frustrating too, but i lucked out on my current run and got an iron shield and two weapon drops on the first level.  i have done a few of fay's puzzles and the loot is good and random.

man, that sucks kevin.  hopefully they can get everything all figured out soon.

this has not been a good launch for the beta.  inadequate registration server, slow patch download system and misprinted codes.  let's hope the beta goes better

Now that I /do/ request a copy of.  $25 + shipping is much better than $50.

that one i remember seeing too.  say the word and i will stop by tomorrow and grab it for you.  add on 2.50 for tax and shipping puts it around 31 for 2 day priority.

okami should be on the shelf for a bit longer than the ps2 version, so i will get that eventually.  still holding out for gta iv as my next big game purchase, but i might spring on persona 3 when it gets rereleased, even though i won't start playing it for a while. 

i've already got a bunch of games to play right now anyways.

i wonder if the remake of battlezone is any good.  maybe not as kickass as the pc remake a few years back, but it could be fun.

does it matter to you that there's a sales tax in this state?  it would add ~1.50 to the price.  total shipped would be ~20 if it was the priority shipping method.  not sure if the weight forces it into the higher bracket or not.  lmk and i will grab one for you, no probs.

It was a different picture.  The ass one is perfectly OK with photobucket, for some reason they only seemed opposed to pictures of me where I'm wet.
