too bad they don't have the death penalty up there, this guy deserves it.

Though I'll admit when I bought the two volumes of the Batman: Hush collection today at Barnes & Noble, I was imagining the cashier lady thinking, "He's too old to be reading this. They must be gifts for his son!"  icon_razz


i had the same thought when i went up there last week with batman: the long halloween.  luckily, the guy at the counter looked like he already had half the graphic novel shelf sitting in his living room.

What is the going price these days?  I have a friend who was picking up his new 3G one today and he asked how much he could get for his old one.  I wasn't sure what to say.



I paid $150 for a 16GB.

despite really liking the 3g improvements, i'd get one of the older ones at that price.  too good to pass up.

i already did.  Tongue

Well, I am the supposed fool.  I sold the phone for that cheap since 1.  I knew the person and 2. I don't really mind helping someone out since I won't use it anyways.  So, you got it jailbroken Ron?

I've now got 5 of them at the 150 price - ignore the comments, those folks will still be holding their 'for sale - $400' iPhones in 6 months. 

As for jailbreaking it, yep.  I had to downgrade the firmware (2.0 wasn't busted at the time) and downgrade the baseband (a more scary proposition) to get it running.  The first one took me a few hours to collect exactly the right tools and firmwares.  The second one took me less than 5 minutes (4.5 of which was the utility running).  Piece of cake.

damn, 5 at that price?  any thought of selling one to a gt'er? biggrin  my plans for getting a 3g are dwindling.

8694  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBLA August!! on: July 30, 2008, 05:01:48 PM
it all comes down to how much you get for castle crashers.  if they hold back a chunk of the levels ala exit or lumines in the hopes to charge us again, then it's a bad price. 

either way, i wait for reviews/impressions/demo. 
8695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: WTF? Activision Drops Ghostbusters, Brutal Legend, Riddick and Others for... on: July 30, 2008, 04:58:47 PM
the core idea of the movie is a perfect match for a game, so why not use the source material if it's available?  take any good game with similarities to strong movies or books and imagine what a game using those properties could be like?  it makes them more interesting and could be a much better game for it.  hell, take the hook of being with the empire away from tie fighter and you have a basic space sim with a bad guy twist.  still could be cool, but it works so much better with star wars involved.

8696  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Wolverine ComicCon Footage on: July 29, 2008, 10:20:42 PM
too bad, i would have liked to see it.

i take it by their casting of william stryker that they are going to show him as a younger man than brian cox?  that was a pretty good fit imo.  just enough shadow conspiracy aura about him. 

i wonder who will be the cameo now?

and can we get a spider man 3 reboot please?

yup, closed immediately.  hepcat, you need to divert funding from the recipe division to the time travel division so you can go back and buy up a supply yesterday.

article in question

if your store was a franchise, then you are in luck however.  those aren't in the chapter 7 filing. 

this sounds like a royal screwing over by the owners to the workers.  no last paycheck, no forewarning, just a call at midnight telling them the store was closed.

bring on fall and our only remaining good sports team playing the best damn game to drink with.  what a disastrous year for baseball fans up here. 

not to mention how crappy a summer it's been.  hell, it freaking rained today.  july FN 29th?!  they have it on record that this marks the 4th time when rain fell on this day since the 50's. 
8704  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Red Bull on: July 29, 2008, 05:59:09 PM
other than TK, costco sells the imported mexican Coke in the bottle, also a cane sugar.  i like it a lot, but not as much as the root beer.
anything from Jones soda is cane sugar as well, and they have a wide variety of flavors.  thomas kemper also has a few flavors other than root beer.

they also tend to sell them around passover and most of the mexcan sodas are cane sugar. 

here's a quick little article i read about cane vs hfcs

sadly, most US makers are dedicated hcfs users.

8706  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Red Bull on: July 29, 2008, 05:36:22 PM
i have been dropping the number of hfcs sodas in favor of cane sugar sodas.  one, they taste a hell of a lot better and cane sugar is no where near as bad as the corn syrup.  two, they also cost a bit more, so i buy less, which cuts down on my total intake.  win-win, and thomas kemper root beer kicks so much ass over the big brands, it's not funny.  

i tried a red bull once and was too wired to sit.  this from a guy who drinks a cup of coffee in the morning and usually grabs a grande something or other in the mid morning.

so, let's not take a chance on our riskier titles by floating their bills on the tried and true titles.  sounds like they are so afraid of failing even a little that they can't take the risk. 

i would drop their stock if i had any right now.  this is not a good sign of their long term viability.

just make it compatible with the motion plus and it's a done deal.

Red Steel 2 has been in development for many months now, and this new device will help us be even more precise in what we do with the product.

there's a good game in there, so hopefully they can pull this one off.

That's true. By technicality, because you spend extra buying blank media, you're allowed to pirate. Or something really screwy like that.

for all you northern border folks out there, just tell riaa that you bought all your cd's in canada, so therefore you've already paid for that music.  perfect.

the cynic in me says that if riaa gets another revenue source that they can sip from they won't just abandon the one they already have.  riaa would have to die for this system to float with me. 

i am curious what the pay for download services think of such a tax as it makes their service less favorable.  if you already pay a tax on any d\l ing, then why pay apple on top of that?

yup, the best solution for piracy is to tax everyone who could use a service for those who abuse it.  brilliant. 

if this happens here, expect to see a monthly $5 charge tacked on to your internet bill to cover it and related expenses involved with "administering" it.
