Loved season one. Season two started fine but ended so over the top and ridciulous that it sapped my interest in watching season three.

No thanks. The demo was enough to scratch the itch. Maybe I'll rent it, but there are other games I would rather play first.
Yep, I'm in the same boat. Madden is always appealing in the abstract-- with football right around the corner, I love the idea of diving into an NFL game to get hyped for the upcoming season. Yet, all it takes is one game of the demo and I realize that this is pretty much the same Madden and, meh, I don't think I want it after all.

At this point, the whole "roster update" thing is kind of a played-out criticism, but could you imagine any other non-sports series releasing a full price sequel with this level of minimal improvements? Imagine a new Mass Effect which is exactly the same as the original, except it has new camera angles, a few more animations and grass physics. Who would pay $60 for that?

Lara Croft
Shadow Complex

And my favorite: Splosion Man (and probably Ms. Splosion Man-- I haven't had a chance to grab it yet)

Ooooh, I might have to get this. I love me some Guy Clark. For the uninitiated, think Jeff Bridges character in "Crazy Heart".

wait, what about Jeff Bridges in Jeff Bridges?
Who plays him in the movie? I'll wait for the soundtrack.

Yeah, once I got the mission, i hopped a horse and headed cross country to Kvatch.  Gate's closed, me and Sean are running back across country for the next main story bit.

Then you're good to go.  You can explore to your heart's content and level up as much as you want.  But once you get to a certain point beware of trolls at every fucking turn. 

Sounds like the internet.

Two Worlds II would be tempting if I had the time to play it. I still might pick up Torchlight and/or Defense Grid because I still haven't played them yet and they are ridiculously cheap.

Seeing all of the late 70s trappings did my heart good; though the anachronisms in these sort of movies always drive me up the wall smile  The movie ostensibly takes place in 1979, but they reference both Rubik's Cube and the Walkman - neither of which were introduced here until mid/late 1980.  
Incorrect! The walkman came out in July of '79, though you are right that it hit maximum mainstream penetration by the mid-80s. And the Rubik's Cube was released internationally by 1979, but I think it was not released in the States until 1980. But yeah, they both were unlikely to be part of popular culture in 1979.

I think at this point Best Buy since you get a $15 gift card.

TRU has the same deal.
True, but do you want to expose children to CC?

You've got it backwards. CC exposes himself to children.

The weather's been crazy all over, too, which may have delayed some things.

at first i thought you meant in the game..which leads me to this question,for those who have the game

what is the weather like in the game,all i have seen is nice and sunny,is it always that way?(well apart from at night)

well, it is L.A. Of course, the "Noire" part should mean you'd at least get some moody clouds or something.

and you know it's true, since I have returned the insults now and nothing is being done.  

If I disagreed that you were a man and your produced a picture of you naked, dick swinging in the wind, as prove that you were, and I deemed it a forgery, does that make me admirable for standing by my convictions?

So wait, do birthers claim that the certificate released by Obama, the same one anybody from Hawaii would have access to, is actually a forgery? That the state of Hawaii fabricated it for him so he could be eligible for president? I honestly don't get why it isn't deemed sufficient, because the alternative is that the produced document was faked by someone, somewhere, for nefarious reasons. Is that what's claimed?

I think it's more vague than that.  Zekester seems to be making a sort of deep epistemological point:  how can we really know anything?

Surely not conceivable here, since you all know everything

Then, of course, the question is why isn't it sufficient. I'm still waiting to hear the details of what's "fishy" about Obama's birth that makes the produced document suspect. I imagine it has something to do with his dad. You know, the one in "Dreams of my Father" that Bill Ayers wrote about.

The character's name was Dave Novotny. The actor who played him also played the inept tennis instructor, Milos, on Seinfeld. smile

But there's no way in hell that is Dave Novotny. A high school teacher would know that the word "have" would never follow the word "neither". Obviously, "has" is the correct verb to use here. While it's not the most egregious grammatical infraction I've seen on Tea Party signs, I doubt that a woman of Reese Witherspoon's caliber would lay down with a such a careless and inarticulate chap.
