well, I picked this up used for 40 bucks and I have to say I'm liking it.  I'm definitely getting the Tomb Raider vibe, and this will be a nice appetizer to hold me over until the next Tomb Raider game.  I just finished the first 3 or 4 levels and I'm amazed at how polished this game is.   thumbsup to Naughty Dog.

Where did you get this for $40.  I would love to find it at that price.

a local used DVD/CD/Games place.  Their used stuff is usually cheaper than Gamestop- I got Halo 3 used for 45 bucks a few days after it was released from them (which I completed and promptly turned around and trade back to Gamestop for 38 bucks).  I usually go there first if I'm looking for a used game- earlier this month I scored a copy of The Darkness for 16 bucks.

Another plus is that it's right across the street from the OSU campus, so they tend to have a decent inventory most of the time, and it gets even better towards the end of the quarter when the college kids are running out of cash and selling stuff for beer money  icon_twisted

so, what's the final verdict on this one?  I played the demo last night and kinda liked it- does it hold up all the way through?  If it does I may pick it up once I can find it used.

considering the glut of cheap used Blu Ray discs that the local used place has for sale right now I'm thinking about taking the PS3 plunge and grabbing a bunch.  I priced a bunch of them yesterday and noticed I can grab all 3 Pirates movies for about 30 bucks.

scratch that, I got one as a gift.  I did buy used copies of Uncharted, PotC 3 BR and Order of the Phoenix BR.

well, in a surprise turn the friend I bought a 360 for last year bought me a 40 gig PS3, so I can finally say I own the tri-fecta!  and no, I'm not throwing my backing behind Blu-Ray as next week I'll probably grab a HD-DVD player and support both camps as there's stuff on HDDVD that I want that isn't on Blu Ray and having both will give me the best of both worlds!  Plus, whichever side loses will no doubt have nice clearance sales on their stuff  icon_twisted

Hotmail's UI is way, way, way, way, WAY better than Gmail.  I signed up with Gmail like 4 years ago when Hotmail just didn't have enough storage for me, but now I regret it since it's a pain in the ass to fully move. The Hotmail UI is just lightyears ahead of the craptastic Gmail one.

you can set up your gmail account to automatically forward any email to another account.  It should be under options- that's what I'm doing with both my gmail accounts.

But yeah, it's gonna suck.  The good news is that it's not a series yet, just a two hour TV movie so it if bombs as expected that will be the last we see of it.

don't forget it's going to be actual new non-reality TV programming in the middle of the TV wasteland caused by the writers strike, so it could actually post decent numbers.
Who is going to write it?

I was referring to the movie, which apparently is already written since they're advertising it for February.  If they decide to make it a regular show then there might be issues, but I have a feeling the studios might take steps to fix things if the strike starts to threaten the Fall TV season.
61379  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Anyone Here Have a Gmail Account? on: December 28, 2007, 04:08:15 PM
I've never had an issue with Hotmail- heck, I even have my 2 gmail accounts forwarding to it.  I can't think of the last time I had any spam in my inbox- if anything I've had to go to my junk folder to tell HM it's OK for something to go to my inbox.

I just cancelled WoW, again.   I wanted to try out the leveling content, but I got my BE Pally to 60 and I just couldn't stand the thought of soloing to 70.  I like WoW, but I play the mmorpg for the social aspect not soloing all the time.  Been thinking about playing LotR or Tabula Rasa, but haven't made up my mind.

Gamestop supposedly has LotR on sale for 10 bucks this weekend...

Me, I'm addicted to Tabula Rasa right now.  Totally solo as I get too wrapped up in the action to notice whispers from other people (or anything else in the chat box (sorry blackjack!!)).

61386  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Why is my cable TV fuzzy? on: December 28, 2007, 03:17:13 PM
I'd call the cable company-  there should be no charge for them to come out and look into it.  What's happening to you sounds like something that happened to me before- we had a fuzzy image for several channels and when the cable guy came out he found that the guy who installed the cable had not properly shaved off errant bits of coaxial cable when he had cut it and put on the plugs.  the result was that there were bits of cable sticking out of the end and they were picking up local broadcasts that interferred with the signal.  The new guy recut the cable and everything was fine.

no chance this will live up to the hype.  it might be a technically decent shooter, but i don't see how it can compare to our expectations.

Since the hype is so negative, it'd be a really good think if it didn't live up to it!

that said, i don't expect that a game developed over 10 years will actually be any good.  these guys are out of practice.

I'd tend to agree, but Team Fortress 2 defied that expectation.

Valve is an infinitely more talented developer.

valve has also released a few games since then. what other games have they released since work on dnf started? 

er... I think Valve has released all of their games since DNF work started.....

Well, I tried soloing Forcaste Prison last night and it's not looking possible for me at level 20 due to that time limit to take out the 4 bunkers at the beginning.  The turret on each bunker just kicks my arse- I can take them down but with full shields up I always end in the red by the time they explode, and the concentration of troops around each one doesn't help.  I didn't notice it on the Wilderness Instances but do they make the enemies tougher for them?  oh, and did anyone do the Prominence instance in the Wilderness?  I totally forgot about it and was wondering if it was worth going back to.
