It is indeed Christian Slater in his best role...besides Kuffs, of course.

I just watched this one last night:

I agree with that for somebody who has a good chance of rebuying the system, but for those of us who don't give a crap about SquareEnix or JRPGs, corrupt's logic might just be sound.  The companies that made the games that made me want the PSP have basically all moved on to console games it seems.
9324  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Name that movie on: July 27, 2008, 10:48:04 PM
Well, a search on IMDB for Michael Clarke Duncan and Rob Schneider found the movie 'American Crude' that they were both in.  Can't say I've ever heard of it, but it does seem to be one and the same.
9325  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Soul Caliber IV - Are you buying it? on: July 27, 2008, 05:27:12 PM
Getting it for the 360.  I'm not really a big fighter guy but was a huge fan of the first two games (never played the third) so this is a no-brainer.  I hope that the single-player has a good progression method to it.

I've continued to vote, but it looks like right now the #100 spot is more than double our effort at 248.  Sorry man.
9327  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Major new PS3 game announced in August..? on: July 26, 2008, 09:44:44 PM
I'm so sick of seeing announcements for games 2+ years before they even come out accompanied by CG "target render" videos.  Announce it when you feel comfortable enough to show some real fucking gameplay. 
9328  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Should I keep my PSP? on: July 26, 2008, 09:42:42 PM
I've been seriously considering getting rid of my PSP as well.  I haven't bought a new game for it in quite a while and don't see much of anything on the horizon.  Of course Sony say "We are commited to the platform" but where are the games (both first and third party)?

The only reason I haven't sold it is that I hate GameStop and the terrible prices they pay for used things, but I'm too lazy and cautious to sell things on ebay/craigslist.

Well, I used to pay for that other company to use renewable energy (wind and water, I believe), but they actually charged a premium for that, the cheeky buggers.

I have no idea what natural gas prices will be this winter, but I know that I wish I still lived in an apartment with electric heating. 

Electric heating is the most expensive heating you can get.

Really?  All I know is I used to pay a hell of a lot less in my old apartment, but that was in Washington and now I'm in Colorado.  Much more moderate temperatures there both summer and winter.

I wish they showed the full clip.  I'd be interested to see how long it takes from impact for the ship to sink.

Yeah, there was an obvious void of time in the middle there.

Also, what do you really expect a torpedo is going to do?  That's it's job.  To blow up ships.  It has a pretty singular destiny.

It would be sweet if they just forgot about the stupid X-Files main storyline and just made a two hour stand-alone episode about some weird phenomenon.  I agree with Hepcat that those were always my favorite episodes.

Great marketing tool. Who says only Blizzard knows how to handle the pre-release hype of its games?

I have never heard that.

While I definitely wouldn't trust that one, I read it as being $600 including the shipping via Global Mail Express or whatever.

Regarding the ferry scene; did you guys think that even though he said the other ferry would explode when the switch was pulled, it would actually blow up their own ship?  That's what I figured was going to happen.  The ol' Joker switch-a-roo.

Side note:  It was interesting to see Zeus back in action slywink

okay, my dumb question of the day:  what/who was zeus?

'Tiny' Zeus. The tall, scary-looking black actor who played the inmate in the ferry that talks the detonator out of the cops hand. He was in the first 'Friday' film. That was a very nice cameo role he got in TDK; well-done.

You disappoint me.  He has a far more important role in his film career that far outshines his acting in Friday.  How can anyone forget his role as "Zeus" in Hulk Hogan's film masterpiece "No Holds Barred"?  While everyone around me yelled, "Hey, that's Deebo," I was the one true fan yelling, "OMG that's Zeus!":



Yeah, every time I see that guy I immediately think of No Holds Barred even though it's been like 20 years since that came out.

I find myself wondering if it wouldn't be better to put out the "RE4 camera style with no timer" version on the 360, and therefore not sacrifice graphics at all. smile

Well...it's Capcom and they do like to re-release improved versions, so anythings possible.

Add in some modern saving and I might actually buy that version.  Tongue

Dead Man

Hooray!  I guess I'm just a fan of Dead Man and had assumed more people had seen it.  Good movie with an awesome "soundtrack/score" by Neil Young.

Nope.  It's black and white.  With Johnny Depp.  From the 90's. Here is another clue (it's basically the picture from the movie poster):

Speaking of adventure games, you could check out the free comedy adventure "Ben There, Dan That!" over at Zombie Cow Studios (although you can feel free to donate smile ).

It's actually not Ed Wood, though you do have the actor right.  smile

I like the fact that they are killing the timers and such, but it's obvious that beyond about 5 feet the mall just looks deserted.  Boo.

I played Fable and Fable: Lost Chapters on BC and didn't have too many significant problems.  I did run into a crash once or twice (I think with the original), but not serious performance issues. 

I've never tried any of the Originals downloads since, as Misguided said, they are all on the regular BC list and available cheaper on disc.

I'm not a fan of giving out an email address, but I have voted twice now.  What I didn't realize is that I had to click on the link they send you to verify the vote.  That sounds almost like work.
