True Blood has a better chance of turning you into a vampire than making you gay.

The only "True Blood" I like results from the deflowering of a sexy young nymph. Am I right, fellas??

This post brought to you by the heterosexual agenda. STRAIGHT POWER!

Ever since the new dashboard update a month or so ago, whenever I turn on my 360 it asks to update the dashboard. I have to go through the entire process of downloading the update and reapplying it every single time I turn the stupid thing on. This can take a good 5 minutes or so. Plus, then it goes to that stupid "new dashboard" tutorial screen.

I have no idea why this is happening. Google suggested clearing my cache, but this didn't help. It's driving me nuts.

Any suggestions?

Loving it.

I've completed 8 out of the 10 Jordan challenges. The classic teams are really well done... not just the likenesses, but there are so many player-specific animations. I loved going to the free throw line with Bill Cartwright and seeing his funky rigidly vertical shooting form.

NBA 2k11 is getting some phenomenal early reviews. IGN gives it a 9.5, calling it the best basketball game ever and the best sprts game of this generation. I'm tempted, solely because I want to relive so many of the classic Jordan moments, and dunk all over Bird, Magic and Dominique.

My wife and I just finished the most recent season. The show is incredible. I'd say we were hooked by midway through the first season, but to our pleasant surprise, the quality just kept improving. I have no clue where they go from here-- the end of season 3 introduced some shocking events and character development, to say the least. Can't wait for more.

183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Backbreaker on: August 12, 2010, 02:42:23 PM
So I started playing this the other night. I went through the tutorial (a must), and then checked out "Tackle Alley", a minigame in which you control a halfback trying to get to the endzone by avoiding wave after wave of skull-crushing linebackers. And, damn, was it addictive. Apparently, there are 100 "levels", each one progressively adds some new wrinkle of difficulty, like shrinking the field of play. I made it to level 84 before finally succumbing to the insanity.

I got around to trying out the real game last night, and man, do I suck, especially at running the ball (any tips?) I think the Madden/NCAA way of playing football is so ingrained in me, that I'm having a hard to shifting to the more immediate perspective this game demands, and its going to take some time to retrain my brain. Some of the hits and animations are really incredible, though. I led my tight end directly into an oncoming defender, who knocked his lights out right as the ball arrived. My tight end wilted to the ground, legs splayed out in a split position. He hung there for a second before flopping to the turf like jelly. It was quite amusing.

Anyway, the game looks promising. I just need to learn to suck less.
184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II demo for 360 out now on: August 12, 2010, 02:22:35 PM
Pete, I'd venture to say that the Godfather game drew heavily from mechanics from the original Mafia. The gameplay is very similar between the two (basically GTA-like, with small variations), but what elevated the original Mafia to an all-time great in my mind was the wonderful setting full of nice touches and detail, great characterization and script, and an unforgettable ending.
185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mafia II demo for 360 out now on: August 11, 2010, 09:37:17 PM
Loved the demo, but one thing that was troublesome was how absolutely tiny the text and map were. Even on my HD set, I was struggling to read objectives and follow the red line to my destination.

There are A LOT of quality shows I missed while they were on the air, but have devoured once on DVD. In fact, I probably prefer watching a TV series in marathon-like bursts. The top ones in recent years would have to be:

THE WIRE

and

THE SHIELD

I'm not a huge video game football fan (in fact I haven't bought a football game since the Dreamcast...), but I'm actually considering picking this one up now.  Looks like you can get it for $30 at Best Buy.

Same here.  I used to play a lot more with friends.  I was never much into Madden but I played a lot of NFL Gameday on the PSX.  I'm grabbed the android game and like it.  I think I'll stop at best buy tonight and see how much it is running there.

It's 30 bucks at BB. I just picked up a copy there, took it home, installed it to the HD with patch and used an old flash drive to import the NFL teams and players. I'm ready to go now!

I actually had backbreaker in hand while looking down at Madden 11. I've been telling myself for months now that I wouldn't get Madden this year (every other year works well for me, and I purchased it last year), but DAMN the pull is strong. I don't know how Madden does it. They nominally update features and gameplay and still I'm tempted to drop 60 bones on it. Fortunately, I was strong and left the store with the Backbreaker purchase instead. It was actually kind of funny-- there were fratty dudes in front of and behind me in line, both with copies of Madden. They probably thought I was mistakenly buying the wrong game.  icon_lol
188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3] Backbreaker on: August 10, 2010, 01:04:35 AM
Bill Harris is glowing about the game post-patch.

Quote
This may be the most dramatic improvement I've ever seen in a game via patch. All the possibilities that Backbreaker represented, all the unique qualities that were designed to capture the intensity of being on the field--they nailed it...

It's a 90 game in 90 condition now.

Let me be clear about this. It's not just that the broken parts of the game have been fixed. It's that this game absolutely soars, in a way that I don't remember seeing since ESPN NFL2K5.

Yes, I thought Madden was a better game last year, but I still remember how blown away I was the first time I saw NFL2K5 in 480P on the Xbox. It was incredibly vibrant and totally breathtaking.

In 2010, so it is with Backbreaker.

Now, I know how Harris can go overboard with his effusive praise with games every once in awhile, but to his credit he did call this one a stinker pre-patch. I'm curious enough that I may give it a shot for my digital football fix this year, especially considering it's listed at $40 bucks (edit: it's just $30 at Best Buy at the moment) and likely to drop in price pretty soon.

Plus, it looks like you can import NFL rosters.

Holy bucket of suck. I guess they are emphasizing the "guitar" part of the game's name and loading up on guitar-heavy and harder rock music, which really doesn't appeal to me at this point all that much.

I guess I won't get my chance to become a WARRIOR OF ROCK!!1!

Loving, loving, loving Seasons 6 and 7 of the Shield.

Unfortunately, the first 5 seasons are only available by mail, and they definitely need to be watched in order.

Oh, and Arrested Development is available on Watch Instantly, but everybody here has watched that unless they're as dumb as a box of hammers.

I was going to say Party Down, but it seems to have been removed.

My favorite movie I've seen on watch instantly is probably This is England.

Other recommended flicks include The Vicious Kind (starring Adam Scott from Party Down in a very different kind of role) and Gigantic (starring Zoey Deschanel, hubba hubba).

My Kingdom For The Princess - THIS GAME IS ON SALE FOR 99 CENTS! For the price this is an absolutely ridiculous bargain. I got it for $5 but would have paid $10 and still considered it a steal. I got in trouble with my wife over this game, it's so addictive. It's a time/resource management title in which you are tasked with clearing roads and rebuilding structures in order to get the princess home safely. Tons of levels, very challenging gameplay (if you go for gold on each level), and it kept me absolutely hooked from start to finish. Easily one of the best games I've played on the iPad to date.

Bought! I haven't had a chance to play it yet, though. Why? Because I bought Family Feud HD and couldn't put it down.  icon_redface

Act 1, a compilation of songs mentioned so far.  there's a list at the end, not sure if the songs on it have been mentioned yet.

Most of the songs in that list that would interest me are already available in Rock Band or will be in RB 3.

I'm hoping they manage to get Def Leppard to do RB also.

Are you crazy? Drumming in Rock Band is hard enough with TWO arms.  icon_biggrin
