Well maybe they just stink in the Midwest.  That doesn't make me like them any more, though.

it could be regional.  I had Verizon in Columbus, and then moved to Baltimore for a couple of years and found out their service there was horrid- poor reception plus they couldn't set my number up right  Roll Eyes.  I was having enough issues I was able to get out of my contract with them.

I've had AT&T for a number of years (well, AT&T turned Cingular turned AT&T) and I've got no complaints.  This is from several years use in the SF Bay Area and 3 years in Boston.

yeah, no complaints here either.  I've had some issues with my cell phone itself, but that's more due to it getting soaked in a monsoon than anything AT&T's done.

For those planning on downloading Pirates!, you might want to make sure it's the patched version 1st. The patch simplified the in motion button sequences that were triggered when you boarded a ship. Prior to the patch those sequences were extremely difficult when playing the game on either of the 2 highest difficulty settings. Personally I found the game to be far too easy on any of the 3 lower difficulties.

huh?  the PC version didn't have any button mashing to board a ship- I guess they changed that for the console version.

I've never played any of them.  I understand they are sorta like Resident Evil (which is a bad thing for me) but with a lot more combat (which could be a good thing).  What's the best one?  The third one with the French guy and the time-travelling?

just make sure you can run and shoot at the same time  icon_wink

Right, but they were described as having a slimmer build than humans, diamond shaped heads, no lips, inner set of eyes where human eyes would be, and I could've sworn their outer pair of eyes was supposed to stick out further on the sides.

sounds like a twatblanket to me.

So if the PS3 loads on average of 5 seconds faster with the HD install then it would take over 200 loads to make up for the difference.  This game doesn't have that many levels does it?

Not sure about that.  I think the problem is that with a  20 minute install you aren't chained to your TV-you can go do something.  But for all of those 5 second load times you are basically chained to your TV, waiting, doing nothing.

you could do a push up, thereby getting a workout and gaming experience all in one sitting!

Well you didn't know there was going to be downloadable content smile  But if people come to expect downloadable content in all their games then they might not be so quick to sell them.

they did say there'd be downloadable content, which was my main reason of holding off on a new playthrough.

Hmmm. Judging by the laws we have to abide by where I work, I don't think they can legally swap a unit with lower functionality without you signing a release stating you agree to it.

We can ship one with more, but not less.

but what happens if they just don't have something with more functionality?  maybe they'll just send a PS2 with it  icon_biggrin

as far as I know they aren't making units with hardware BC at all anymore.  so, unless they have them gathering dust in a warehouse someplace you'd probably end up with an 80 gig or whatever their comparable version that is currently available.

Of course if Nader gets in he's pretty close to Vader.....

I don't think system-lock will be viable unless all 3 of the console makers agree to do it, which could reek of collusion. Plus, even if all console makers do it, it opens the door for someone new to come out with a system that has a huge competitive advantage. Gamestop may benefit greatly from used games, but so do game consumers.

Plus pirates will find a way to get past it.

I haven't read this Firefly piece, but I'm in the process of reading the first Vlad Taltos omnibus and I very much like what I see from him.

I read that one- liked the first two books (Jhereg,Yendi) in it but didn't care for the third, Teckla.  I see they have 4 more of his books in another 2 volumes, so I may grab those since they're fairly inexpensive.
