I am still watching, but the pregnancy story lines are really turning me off.  They are both stupid and unbelievable.  I hope they get shoved to the wayside soon.

I got this today, it's loads of fun.

Watched this the other night.  It looks like it's gonna be a pretty good show. 
84  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus on: September 03, 2009, 02:54:33 PM
We watched this last night.  It was really bad, but in a kinda enjoyable way.  Kinda need to MST3000 it to enjoy it.

I'll go way back and say "Police Squad".  It needed way more than 6 episodes.

I'll have to give that a try.

I'm having a very hard time with
Spoiler for Hiden:
Belzabul - the big fly demon.  He reflects physical and is strong against all magics.  And he heals 278 a turn.  I can barely do any damage to him and he'll kill my guys off pretty quickly.  I only have one free battle available, and the stuff to fight there is all below my lvls so I can barely get any exp.  What am I doing wrong?

I could really use some strategy help on this one.

We took 12 of us to the midnight show last night.  The theater we went to had three midnight shows and they were all sold out when we arrived at about 9:15.  Luckily we had bought out tickets already.  Our early arrival put us very near the front of the line and the rest of my family dressed up for the event.  We were celebrating my daughter's 14th birthday with some of her friends and ours.

I loved the movie.  I thought it was very well done.  The action and drama and comedy all were very good.  This has got to be the funniest of the Harry Potter movies.  Of course there were things in the book cut from the movie and things the movie changed to keep the story flowing, but I thought it was all done very well and the movie flowed very well.  It was 2.5 hours and it didn't drag at all.
89  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Movie]Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince impression on: July 14, 2009, 05:14:37 PM
It's getting good reviews.  My daughter is going to turn 14 in a week and we are taking a dozen or so folks to the midnight opening tonight for her.  I'm really excited, but will be hating myself at work in the morning.

I just downloaded this to revisit LOTRO for the first time in over a year.  I stopped with a 44 Hunter.  Things are coming back to me slowly.  I don't really have time to play a MMO to get the most out of it, but LOTR seems kinda solo friendly.
91  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ds] shin megami tensei: devil survivor impressions on: July 01, 2009, 09:05:17 PM
I got this too, just started playing but I'm really enjoying things so far.
92  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Punch-Out!! (Wii) Impressions on: May 21, 2009, 06:46:40 PM
I bought this yesterday.  I never played the originals but this seems like loads of fun.  I'm not very good so far, but I'm enjoying it.
93  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Who likes to rock the party? on: May 06, 2009, 08:01:15 PM
Have a great time.  I so wanted to go to this, but just couldn't swing it.  My wife and daughter really wanted to go too.  I bet it's awesome.
94  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: CHUCK IS BACK! Chuck vs. The First Date Spoilers! on: April 28, 2009, 12:19:08 PM
Yes, it was great and no, that better not be the last episode.

It's my favorite show by far.

I've been playing a little over 4 hours and almost everyone is lvl 4.  Has anyone learned any of the strange things at the guild like dancing or climbing of knitting.  What's up with those?
96  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: (DS) The Dark Spire- Impressions on: April 16, 2009, 03:32:43 PM
I never finished Etrian Odyssey I, but I did finish II.  I think I'll pick this game up.  Sounds like fun.
97  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: This is insanely cool... on: March 05, 2009, 04:50:31 PM
It worked for me just now.  Very cool indeed.
98  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New Season of Futurama Coming? on: February 19, 2009, 04:07:56 PM
Bender's Game was fantastic.  Much better than the first two movies which I thought were a notch below the original series.

Any new Futurama is great though.  It's my all time favorite show.  It holds up so well to repeated viewings.  I must have seen each original episode more than 10 times.

I think Maggie Moo's owns both Marble Slab and Coldstone.

Better Batter is the nectar of the Gods.

For some reason I crave Ice Cream more when it's cold than in the summer.  That's south Texas cold, so like 40 f.

I can watch certain comedies over and over so I'll say...

Futurama - My favorite series ever
The Office - really funny
Flight Of The Conchords - only one 13 episode season on DVD, but it's really great.

105  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ds] world ends with you impressions on: January 21, 2009, 10:32:48 PM
I'm starting to enjoy the story.  The first couple of game days seemed like there was an hour of story and 10 minutes of gameplay.  It's got a good balance now.  The game seems like it's getting easier now but still very fun.
106  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [ds] world ends with you impressions on: January 21, 2009, 04:33:42 PM
Very late to the party here.  I picked this game up used after not wanting to spend $40 on it when it came out last year.

I've been playing for a while now and I'm really enjoying it.  There is so much going on in this story it's quite hectic, but I'm getting used to everything now and doing much better at the battles.  I've just stated day 6, very cool game.  I'm glad I finally got to try it.

DS's are fantastic little game machines.
107  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Are you a theater (as in stage productions) goer? on: December 31, 2008, 08:30:50 PM
About 12 years ago my wife decided to audition for the local community theatre.  She got a part and was hooked.  About a year later I was talked into playing a role in a production that needed more males.  I got hooked too.  Since that time I've been in about 20 productions and my wife too (not always the same shows) and I've watched our community theatre grow from something very amatueristic to something to be proud of.

We've met our best friends through the theater group and have been to many shows in the Houston and surrounding areas.  It's been loads of fun.  This summer I was in a production of "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" with my wife and two kids, it was something special for the whole family.

Right now I'm just starting rehearsals for "Little Shop of Horrors".  I'm playing Orin the dentist who was played by Steve Martin in the movie.  It's really cool.

Anyway, I would not have guessed it earlier in my life, but I really enjoy the theater now.

Quote from: Caine on December 30, 2008, 08:47:58 PM

almost bought this up last month when amazon had it for $15.  kind of regret not grabbing it actually as i rented the first one from gamefly and really liked what i had seen.  i'll probably pick this up used some time down the road.

I was able to snag this from Amazon when it was $15.  That was an amazing deal for a game that's practically new.
109  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DS] mini impressions of Ninjatown and Rune Factory 2 on: December 30, 2008, 04:24:54 PM
My kids got two DS games this Christmas that Daddy likes.

The first is Ninjatown.
This story is simple and cute as are the graphics, but the gameplay is really fun.

This is a tower defense type game, and I'm new to these.

Devils are invading Ninjatown to cause havoc and steal the recipe for Ninja Star cookies that are the pride and joy (and currency) for Ninjatown.  You build huts that house ninjas (different type huts house ninja with differing skills) and then the Ninjas try to defeat the Devils as they invade town.  As you defeat devils you get money (cookies) to upgrade the huts or build more.  It starts out easy (but fun) and gets challanging pretty fast (for me anyway).  I've only played for a couple hours (some solo, some helping my son) but the game is really well done and oozes personality.

The second game is Rune Factory 2 (A Fantasy Harvest Moon).

This game has some typical Harvest Moon gameplay which consists of farming, fishing and building relationships with the townsfolk.  But adds a fantasy twist and some dungeon crawling.  I played Rune Factory one for many, many hours and so far everything seems more balanced in two.  One new addition to this game is there all formal tasks you can do for different townsfolk that are posted on a message board in the town square.  You start doing these (not much choice in the matter) because the rewards are sometimes important tools you need for your home, farm or dungeon crawling.  This one is a very good Harvest Moon type game.   
110  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Is it Unreasonable to Fear for Obama's Safety? on: December 15, 2008, 09:01:02 PM
Here's something that I think about alot of the racism in this country.  I'm white and I live in the rural south.  I'm also 41.  There are a lot of people that are older than me that seem very racist in things like e-mails and what not.  My Grandfather (now 85) that I have worked with for the past 18 years is included with these people.  He stereotypes blacks based on what he grew up with and what he sees on the news and in other forms of media.  He will tells racist jokes and say some very insensitive racist things, but in an individual meeting with a black person, he will treat them with respect and can enjoy their company. 

People like him were brought up in a different America and I can kinda forgive them for that.  But these folks are dying out and not really passing on that racism.  I think the number of people with a blind hate type racism against blacks is a fairly small number. 

That's not to say I'm not worried about somewith with a blind hate for blacks could attempt something with Obama.  I just hope the Secret Service is up to the task of protecting him.

I'm excited for an Obama presidency because I think it could go a long way to further marginalizing racism is our country.  I think we are headed that way now, but it's a generational thing.

Last night's episode was my favorite hour of TV in a long, long time.  I laughed and laughed.  I really enjoy almost every minor character.  It's kinda like the office where the minor characters might get one line an episode and they just nail em.  The main characters interaction is just right too.  Such a great episode in a really great show.  thumbsup
117  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Hivemind] Looking for education on bourbon and whiskey... on: October 09, 2008, 02:22:08 AM
I love threads like this.  icon_biggrin

For some reason beer gives me an upset stomach so I've just given up on ever drinking it. 

I like the hard stuff.  I've had Crown Royal and liked it, but I think I'll give Pendleton a try.  I love trying new things.

Yummy.

I've been playing this since I finished Finay Fantasy Tactics.  I'm only in chapter 2 at the moment, but I'm enjoying the game so far.  It comes at a bad spot after just spening 100+ hours on my new favorite DS game.
