The animations are perfect.  They remind me of a twisted employee orientation film.

Wow, this guy just does not dissapoint.

Just putting out feelers to see if anyone's trying to get rid of a Nintendo DS.  Just PM me if you're interested.

Geez.  I would so get this, but cash is tight right now.  Damn.
2206  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Games and Hardware FS on: October 30, 2007, 11:48:52 PM
So I'm confused, is there still RAM left?  If there is, I might be very interested.
2207  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Monday Timewaster] Portal - In Flash! on: October 27, 2007, 06:10:01 PM
Played it again.  It's not bad.  I'm undecided.
2208  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Monday Timewaster] Portal - In Flash! on: October 25, 2007, 02:38:37 AM
I don't know.  Does the real game have walls that you can't put portals on?  That would suck.
2209  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [Monday Timewaster] Portal - In Flash! on: October 24, 2007, 09:09:44 PM
Ugh.  Please tell me that's not how Portal is.

2212  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Oblivion performance? on: September 27, 2007, 11:02:35 PM
You would have great performance.  It would be comparable, I believe.  I have an Athlon 64 3200+ with 1.5 GB of RAM and a 6800, and I got pretty good performance.  You should be OK.

2214  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NFL Week 3 on: September 24, 2007, 07:49:14 PM
I saw some crack reporter say that Tom Brady is on pace for 55 TD passes.  Can we stop doing this, please?

Look, after three games, I think we're jumping to conclusions.  He'll have great numbers, but he'll taper off at some point.  I mean, honestly, the Packers are on pace to finish the season undefeated.  Can we get over that ridiculous stat?
2215  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Children and video games : when is it too soon? on: September 20, 2007, 05:04:01 PM
My wife works with children, and we've done a lot of research on the subject.  Scientifically, they say that up to about 3 years old (ballpark) a child shouldn't watch TV or play video games, and it should be severely limited after that point.  The reason is that a child doesn't understand that what's on the TV is not real.  There's no disconnect like with an adult.  What is happening on TV is happening inside that box, quite literally.

Now, with my children (when I have them, of course), my wife says Absolutely No Video Games until they're, I don't know, 12 or something knowing her.  I take a different tack.  I say that when you have a time for video games and a time for playing outside, it's ok.  If you have enormous amounts of interaction with the child's parents like we plan to do, it's not damaging.  I believe that video games teach problem solving skills that they might otherwise miss.

However, absolutely NO games will be allowed with weapons for my children for quite a while.  I think Animal Crossing is going to get the most play for quite a while and maybe Wii Sports.

I called this movie "pure movie joy" when I went to see it in the theatre.  I stand by that statement.  I couldn't wipe the smile off my face throughout the whole thing.
2221  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Bourne Ultimatum Impressions [Spoilers Welcome] on: August 08, 2007, 10:32:24 PM
Yeah, I thought it was awesome how it combined elements of all three movies, but gave each movie a little more meaning, meaning that you want to watch them all again.  My wife was practically cheering on the Pamela Landy character.  She was a great character: strong, without being bitchy, which most actresses/directors don't know how to pull off.  Definitely a day one purchase.
2222  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / WTS: Working NES with Zapper & 3 Controllers on: August 01, 2007, 10:50:32 PM
So, I have this NES that works, but I don't need it around the house.  I want to sell it.  Here's what you get:

NES and hookups
Zapper (with badass scope)
3 controllers
Super Mario Bros.
Hogan's Alley
Whatever else I can find

I'm asking 50 for it, shipping included, OBO.  Let me know.

2229  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Really Great Idea: Mario Casino on: January 10, 2007, 11:30:39 PM
I thought of this the other day.  Wouldn't "Mario Casino" be a great idea?  Think about it: Use the wi-fi to play mario-themed poker, blackjack, or other games versus people from around the world.  Compete for coins, and then use those coins to buy stuff for your character, decorate an in-game apartment, or gain special bonuses.

I would play this HARD-CORE.

That's exciting.  I hope they do it.
2231  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GTA4: why no PC love? on: January 06, 2007, 04:01:31 PM
Yeah, anything marked as a "Games For Windows" label needs two requirements:  It has to put an icon in the "My Games" folder, along with some basic information, and it has to support the 360 controller.

I'm telling you, Microsoft is not letting PC gaming go by the wayside.  Isn't is ironic that one of the most hated companies could be the savior of the PC gaming hobby?

I was PC gaming since I got a 286-8/12 MHz machine with 640 KB of RAM.  I also went to a friend's house occasionally to play on his Apple IIc.  I have been upgrading PC's since I put a math co-processor in the 286.  The first games I remember purchasing are Arkanoid II and Battle Chess.  I have experience and I've been following the industry longer than the original NES has been around.  I didn't even get into consoles until the Dreamcast.



I'm just messing with you.  I agree, shockingly enough, with unbreakable (or is it Kobra? Tongue).  If PC gaming was going to die, it would have died already.  As it is, it's not going anywhere.  Is it getting more niche?  Definitely.  That's why Microsoft is releasing Vista, along with the Games For Windows platform, to push the industry to stop making cheap non-3d capable computers.

In fact, Microsoft is making the PC part of it's two-pronged strategy, along with the 360.  So, if the biggest company in computers isn't abandoning the PC, and isn't going to anytime soon, there's a darn good chance that PCs are in it for the long haul.

OK, then prove it.  Give me an original non-ported title.  Either it will have a small development team, backed by a large publisher, or have hype because it's a sequel or has a specific developer or publisher behind it.


I think you've explained ANY console, PC or otherwise with your blanket statement.

Dragon Warrior VIII?  GTA4?  I mean, you can go down the line, and there's a REASON why people are excited about most games: there's a name behind it, or it's a sequel.  A lot of times, there are games that aren't intended to be tremendously popular and just happen to go big (Katamari Damacy).

No disrespect to consoles, because I love my PS2, but PCs are still viable.  I mean, hell, the installed user base blows away ANY console, doesn't it?

I'm looking for a good animation program, one that lets you do professional-type animation.  What are the best ones?
2235  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: GTA4: why no PC love? on: January 03, 2007, 10:34:44 PM
Yeah, I think that the previous versions came out for PC AFTER the console versions were out for a bit, although San Andreas was pretty darn simultaneous.

Whoops. Yeah, I was thinking of DK64. The DKC games (on the SNES) were fantastic side-scroller titles.

Whew, I almost had to bring out the +2 Sword of Master Debater.

DKC and DKC2 were some of the finest games I have ever played.  I don't know where people get that idea from, honestly.  DK64 was meh.

I tried "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" on Hard and got 3 stars.  I had never, to that point, done a hard song on GH1 all the way through, and it was my first attempt in GH2.

This is weirding me out.
