Hey guys my Bluray disc has a digital copy and there's a single code inside...does this mean I can only download it to my computer once and then the disc is no good?

I let my buddy download the digital copy.  He put it on his laptop, then told me the next day he had no problem copying it to his desktop and IPod.  Not sure if you can actually download again, but copying looks to work.

Gargling salt or lemon water will help a sore throat.  Steam (hot shower) will clear congestion. Fever... just rest and maybe pop a couple aspirin; basically wait it out.
483  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Left 4 Dead Impressions on: November 25, 2008, 02:23:35 PM
Here's a question that is probably pretty dumb:

Does Left 4 Dead require a Gold xbox live account in order to play multiplayer or is it a special case?

Don't know if we have any wooters in here, but in case we do... today is another woot off! Good luck on your bags-o-crap.

The homebrew community (the non-pirating kind) has released quite a few seemingly good games. I know there's a port of Quake 1 on it, and I hear really good things about how Wiimote control (yes, you point at the screen like in Metroid Prime 3) makes the game kick all kinds of ass (even with how old it is).

Homebrew is not just pirating games. It's where people with a lot of time on their hands can make games for consoles.

Wait... releasing a version of licensed software for free on another console is not pirating?  I mean, I'm no saint and would probably do it in a heartbeat, but let's not fool ourselves about what this is.
487  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tomb Raider: Underworld on: November 19, 2008, 02:18:29 PM
So has anyone picked this up yet?  I'm a huge Tomb Raider fan from way back and since Legend came out have actually been excited about new releases in the series.  From the demo, Underworld is looking like it has potential and I have some store credit burning a hole in my pocket so I might pitck this up tonight.  Anyone else have this that can offer some impressions?  I havn't found any reviews yet and would feel better about my purchase knowing ahead of time that it doesn't suck.
488  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Do you prefer stategy or luck? on: November 06, 2008, 07:47:58 PM
Since most modern games are just strings of "scenarios", adding a luck element to strategy can keep it fresh on replays.  Pure luck is no good as nothing you do will matter or give you any sense of accomplishment, but pure strategy has the side effect of being boring once you figure out the right way to do something.
489  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Pick Two on: November 06, 2008, 07:20:54 PM
Well, I was wavering on my second title so I just ended up getting Fallout 3.  I will grab something else later used most likely.  From the sounds of it FO3 will keep me plenty busy for awhile anyway
490  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pick Two on: November 06, 2008, 05:00:08 PM
So I'm heading out today to pick up some new 360 titles.  I think I have my choices down, but I'm interested in what you all would do and why.  Your mission if you choose to accept it; pick two titles from the following list and explain why. Feel free to add other titles as well, but keep it to newer releases.  I already have most of the catelog titles that I am interested in.

Fallout 3
Dead Space
Far Cry 2
Fable 2
Gears of War 2 (not out yet I know, but close enough to be considered)

My choices right now are leaning towards Fallout 3 and Dead Space.

There was a whole page of remakes of that photo.  Wonder if anyone knows where it was. Was pretty funny IIRC.

Google "Moshzilla" and you will find plenty.

Why are you wrapping it in a towel and stuff?  Just shut the valve off to the spigot in your basement/wherever it is.
497  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Indy IV: thoughts, reviews, spoilers galore!! on: October 17, 2008, 06:30:44 PM
Me and the wife liked it plenty fine. Don't expect Raider's or anything, but it's still fun.
498  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: How has the economic downturn affected you? on: September 19, 2008, 01:13:43 PM
Well, my 401K is taking a bath, but I did manage to buy a house worth WAAAYYYYY more than I paid for it, and my job is secure.  So all in all things are going fine.
499  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Verizon FiOS on: September 16, 2008, 06:15:16 PM
So I'm in the process of choosing a cable/internet/phone provider for my new house and was wondering if anyone here has experience with Verizon FiOS.  How's the HD and how's the service?
500  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie] Burn after Reading - Impressions (Spoilers, natch) on: September 15, 2008, 08:54:56 PM
Yeah, me and the wife saw it this weekend and both LOVED it to death.  As you said, perfectly cast, the dialog is spot on.  I would classify this as more Fargo less Old Country for Old Men. Funny, meandering, and dark if you stop and think about what is actually going on.

I guess it's getting some negative reviews, but if you are a fan of Coen movies, I can't honestly see how you wouldn't enjoy the hell out of this one.
501  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Name that movie on: September 11, 2008, 06:44:09 PM
Another pretty easy one.  Don't look at the properties

502  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Name that movie on: September 11, 2008, 06:42:19 PM
Oh that's Across the Universe... I have seen it.  I have no memory of that scene with the statue of liberty.

Since I know I'm correct, and I'm leaving work soon, here is my submission... a pretty easy one


506  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Name that movie on: September 10, 2008, 09:33:35 PM
Gleaming the Cube!!  Love that movie
507  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Movies you love that everyone else hates... on: August 14, 2008, 03:53:46 PM
Starship Troopers - I can never get enough of this movie. Goofy fun, nice effects, naked chick, interesting satire on the whole "rah-rah war" concept. It might help that I never read the book, but honestly I've never had a problem separating mediums and don't bother comparing adaptations/remakes to eachother.  I just look at them as separate entities.

Dragon Wars - Caught this one on a whim and me and the wife actually enjoyed it. Not Oscar worthy or anything, but not the complete shit that most people think it is. We may be the only people on the planet who liked it though.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - Rather than get into another 10 page argument on whether it sucked or not, I'll just say we had a lot of fun with this one.

Silent Hill - Lots of people think this is crap, but it's actually one of my favorite modern horror movies.
508  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [slang] "Lifting Cars" on: August 05, 2008, 03:42:59 PM
Connecticut - stealing cars.  Heard it when I was younger, not lately though.

No followup. And no indication as to what the future may hold, as they did in Batman Begins.

I'm guessing the next one will be about Batman being hunted as a villan himself and clearing his name.  I thought the movie ended with a big cliffhanger... him taking the blame for Harvey's crimes and going on the lam. 
512  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Dark Knight Spoilers Discussion Thread! on: July 21, 2008, 08:16:35 PM
Don't forget that Joker also promised Batman he would make him break his one rule before everything was over (his one rule is that he will not kill).  When Dent died, Joker won.
