Maybe it just goes to show that the console with the worst graphics will always win! slywink

(at least I found the PS2 to have the worst graphics last generation)

Not entirely sure why we're already pegging the Wii as the winner when we're barely half way through this console generation, if even that.

don't forget we're only getting the first 8 of 16 Lost episodes.

OK, so we should use hollow point bullets or something that would cause a slow, painful death?


take the out to the desert and shoot them in the gut after hamstringing them would probably send a more concise message.

Semi related. In the beta I once logged out insidea nice safe base only to log in the next day inside a hostile base and killed. Was the same base, just the Bane had cap'd it. Nasty surprise.

yeah, if you log out when you're in a CP always do it just outside the exit (or on the battlements if they are low enough to jump off of).

alos, keep in mind if you use a trauma kit your stats may not be back up to full strength even though they are green.  I noticed that if you have enough bonus's from armor and stuff to push it over your base body, mind or spirit it'll show as green (not penalized) even though you may still have a penalty.  I found myself usually just stepping away from the PC for 5 minutes after dying (unless I was defending a CP) to make sure the rez trauma went away.

You'd think an omnipotent being would have his eye on worse behavior.

Define 'worse behavior'.

God takes the reverence of Himself and His name incredibly seriously, hence the first three Commandments.  So perhaps our view of what 'worse behavior' constitutes is off.

So a vain God, gotcha.

it's all him, him, him, like Marsha, Marsha, Marsha......

You can if you want. Odds are though you can still call Microsoft and get your console fixed as it died by the RROD.

the DVD drive dying is covered as part of the RROD?

I just checked on the buy now and the collectors edition is $89.99 - damn thats a lot.  but you get a cape that gets you free in game drinks at the bars.

oh yay, a cape and free drinks for 40 more bucks  Tongue

OK, maybe not just a cape but:

# Ring of Acheronia (Exclusive In-Game Item) - The ring offers special XP and stamina enhancements for players
# Hand-Finished Collectors Edition Box
# Hyborian World Faux Leather Map
# Unique Bonus DVD
# Official Age of Conan Soundtrack
# Age of Conan Art Book
# The Drinking Cape (Bonus In-game Item) - the Drinking Cape gives you access to free drinks in all the taverns of Hyboria
# Five Free Guest Passes

I'm still not sure that's worth the extra 40 bucks.

Wasn't there an uber-cheesy sci-fi-ish dragon movie from Korea that came out not too long ago?  Can't remember the name, but do remember the somewhat cool CGI trailers for it.  Got horrible reviews, but looked like some campy fun. 

Can't remember the stupid name though...

D-War: Dragon Wars

I actually just watched it on Blu Ray- it's horrible and campy in a fun way.  In an odd way the story reminded me of the early Final Fantasy games on the original Gameboy.

I don't see the benefit in achievements.  Before buying the xbox360 I thought achievements would let you download extra content, I was disappointed when I found out I misunderstood. 

I think Mass Effect is the first one to give you a benefit from them.  If you unlock something like Pistol Mastery it gives you the pistol skill no matter what class you choose in later playthroughs.
blah blah blah blah blah.

did gellar piss in your Honey Nut Cheerios this morning pookie?

No, but if you are going to spam the forums constantly at least get some information right so you are actually contributing. Throwing that out there.

whatevs. 

I hear the PS3 exlcusive version of Crysis will have achievements in it which will be cool.

I wonder where the PS3 would be if Sony had sucked it up and taken temporary financial losses with a $399 or lower price and cut off the PS2 supply while having the BC so any PS2 games in development could still come out with decent sales.

you know, I think I may just beat the 360 to the punch and buy one of the newer models and trade in my 2006 one before I get the inevitable RROD's.  With all the issues, and GS recently stopping the extended warranty deal, it wouldn't surprise me to see them start saying they won't accept 360's made before a certain date for trade-  why risk taking in a ticking timebomb?

You probably can't get shit for the old ones though.

last time I checked I think it was $160 in trade (including the extra 10%) at GS as long as it had all the bits.  If it's less there's a couple of other places I can check at.

cool news, but they'd have to do something special for me to do the double dip on Crysis.  I've already played the PC version with most of the bells and whistles and it'll be interesting to see how the PS3 compares.  I imagine having a controller would make the VTOL portion easier too.
