2201  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: TMNT: The Movie on: December 27, 2007, 06:30:21 PM
I was vaguely interested in this movie, but never really made the jump.  If they hadn't already marketed the Turtles to death, maybe I wouldn't feel the deep shame involved in watching this movie.  As it is, I just can't justify it.

Especially because I just forced my wife to watch Talladega Nights.  (I love Will Ferrell.  She hates him.)  I don't think I have enough cred to get another risky movie rented right now.

All they're doing is blowing things up.  Now, I'm all for blowing things up, naturally.  But the great thing about Mythbusters is the buildup, and the personality of the cast.  No one has any personality whatsoever on this show.  I couldn't even tell you any of their names.  They're trying to protect a house from a bomb now.  That's useful.

Am I wrong on this?

Yeah, I let someone borrow my DS for the weekend, so I don't even have that.  My boss left for the weekend, so now I have nothing to do for the next couple of days.  Grr.

Oof.  No MMORPGs.  No way I'm paying money every month to play a game that I already bought.  Just not my thing.

I've been getting alot more in Outlook Express, but not Gmail.

Anyone know of a free online spyware/adware scanner?


Trend Micro's Housecall does the trick for me.  Another option is getting Spyware Doctor in the Google Pack.  It's from a company called PC Tools that I am quickly developing an affinity for.

I haven't gotten anything at all in my spam folder or in my inbox via Gmail.  Hmm.
2206  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: all of gt must be having a hangover on: December 26, 2007, 08:36:00 PM
I've actually had a really busy day so far.  Everyone and their mother is trying to get their computers fixed right now.  Good times.
2207  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Good games from 2004-2006? on: December 26, 2007, 03:43:17 PM
I've got TRON 2.0.  That game rules.

Heroes of Might and Magic V was good?  Maybe I'm just confused by how many bad Heroes games there were.
2208  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Good games from 2004-2006? on: December 26, 2007, 03:51:18 AM
I'm not huge into real-time strategy games.  The only one I've ever really liked was Rise Of Nations because I could pause the action at any time, which I used liberally until I got accustomed to the game.  Is there something like that in Dawn Of War?
2209  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Good games from 2004-2006? on: December 25, 2007, 11:51:00 PM
So, now that I have a computer that's good, but not great, I'm looking for games that I can use to push it a little, just for fun.  I have Call of Duty 2, Titan Quest, Civ 4, Pirates!, and Oblivion.  What other games came out that I've missed?
2210  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Bourne Ultimatum Impressions [Spoilers Welcome] on: December 15, 2007, 08:34:24 PM
Apparently, no one could stand Doug Liman.  He has executive producer credit, but no one wanted him around the other movies.  He's apparently a big jerk, which is why after launching a multi-million grossing franchise and a movie that did fairly decently (Mr. and Mrs. Smith) he hasn't done anything since.
2211  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Dark Knight Poster on: December 14, 2007, 06:22:13 PM
YES YES YES I WANT TO SEE THIS

That was a BRILLIANT trailer.

Man, this guy nails it.  He agrees with me left and right.
2213  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Dark Knight Poster on: December 06, 2007, 04:48:09 PM
Search Fark.com's Showbiz section.  It was a couple of days ago.

I am so pumped for this to come out.  You can tell that they know they have a good movie, because they keep on releasing stuff for it.
2214  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Favourite videogame music? on: December 03, 2007, 04:40:48 PM
There's a great track from Mega Man 4 for the Gameboy that's now my ringtone.

Also, I gotta say the Katamari Damacy theme.

2216  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: October NPDs on: November 17, 2007, 12:06:00 AM
I don't see Nintendo adding an MP3 player into the next iteration of the DS.  They're too nervous about piracy, and being able to put things on a DS would just make them jittery.  Besides, we've seen how well it's worked for the PSP.  How many firmware updates have they made since day 1 to stop piracy?  And how long does it take to crack each one?

I'm still trying to figure out Nintendo's next move, especially with a handheld.  Do they just do a DS with more power, like the Game Boy -> Color -> Advance progression?  Or do they shake it up even more?  Maybe add motion sensing to the DS2?

And what about the Wii?  Are they sure this is the route from now on?  Motion sensing?  Or do they have something else up their sleeve for the next gen?

Well, and in my area, there's only Gamestop that sells used games, so I end up going there all the time.  I don't buy new games, ever.  If another place sold them, though, I'd be all over it.
2219  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: October NPDs on: November 16, 2007, 07:49:38 PM
I foresee the PS3 going like the Gamecube did, struggling, plodding along in relative obscurity, just laying groundwork for the next console.  But this generation is pretty much screwed at that pace.  They're being outsold by the PS2.
2220  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Games that got better after you played them for awhile on: November 16, 2007, 07:44:27 PM
Lords of the Realm 2.  I played it, and could see that there was something there, but it was way too difficult.  Then a friend of mine showed me the ins and outs, and after then, it went down as one of my all-time favorite games.
2221  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Escapist: Zero Punctuation on: November 15, 2007, 07:15:59 PM
The animations are perfect.  They remind me of a twisted employee orientation film.

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

2226  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.
2227  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.
2228  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.
2229  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.

2232  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.

2234  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?
2235  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.
