Wow, I completely disagree with everything you say in this thread. 

So you love OOTS, George RR Martin, think Memento was amazing, and hate Serenity?

We must fight.

Yeah, pretty much (althout I wouldn't say I love OOTS, just like it.  And the last GRRM book was much worse than the first couple).  I really like Memento and thought Serenity was mediocre at best.

I am pumped up! Wall-E is finally here. I'm debating whether to go to a midnight screening tonight as I really have to be a good boy and finish a project before engaging in some Pixar magic dust. Rotten Tomatoes is currently tracking it at a whooping 94%!
Well the one negative reviewer thus far seems to be a douche so it's closer to 100. Tongue

It's funny, all the other reviewers have 0-4 comments at their reviews, this guy has 76.  None of them flattering.

And that is how you drum up unique visitors to your website.

I tried out the Wall-E PC demo and I definitely won't be buying that piece of crap.

What can I say, I actually enjoyed the first one and this development diary (with lots of game footage) looks pretty good.  Tons of realistic destruction in an open world?  Count me in!

Of course they will have some stiff competition from Mercenaries 2, but I think if their destruction is as dynamic as it seems that will add quite a bit to the game for people like me. biggrin

Trailer still looks like cheap crap.  Might be dumb fun, but not good.  I was much more intrigued by the trailer on that page for the Hunter S. Thompson movie.

I have a similar problem with books and music.  I can have five different books or authors in mind when I leave the house but once I walk into the bookstore I draw a total blank.  It's gotten to the point where I have to write down everything I intended to check out so I don't forget.

You could go directly to cyberpower instead of a prebuilt one from newegg.

Yeah, they have tons of great options to configure your own system right on CyberPowerPC's website.  That way you can get exactly what you want and can afford without being restricted to those few choices.  Plus, buying it through there helps GT if you use the ad link from the front page.

I'm not buying anything, but I'm actually curious about Wall-E.  I heard that it's some kind of physics puzzle platformer, and that sounds right up my alley if they did it right.  We'll see what reviews say after I've seen the movie.

it's probably until they run out of spare copies, like most of their previous sales.  ie, if you want the game, don't put it off too long. 

I came to that same conclusion last night and just ordered Burnout: Paradise.  Who knows when I will have time to play it.

Maybe I am young....and maybe you guys are old.....or we just have way different movie taste....I think I have seen maybe 1 of the movies posted.......oh well....I keep checking to see if I recognize anything.....

Well, They Live is a classic B-movie from '88 by John Carpenter.  It has 'Rowdy' Roddey Piper as a guy who sees things as they really are when he puts on these special sunglasses (like in that B&W shot), so he goes around blasting the alien overlords disguised as people with a shotgun.  It's stupid fun. 

But I agree that a lot of these seem just old or obscure for the sake of it.

So the Spore Creature Creator is NOT Spore?  Is that game ever coming out?  What is the creature creator?  The part where you make your creation and then when the full game comes out, you launch it into the world?

That pretty much sums it up. The full game is in September I think.

It's basically a way for EA to get $10 out of people and populate their creature database.  EA totally has suckering people down to a science.

And yet people are still willing to get suckered...

Yes what kind of a rock have you been living under if you don't know of Shenmue?  It's not a big name now but in its time it was THE console release.  Was it really that much of a disaster?  I've never played it but I thought it was supposed to be half decent.  Also The Getaway may or may not be good but it is definitely not an unknown title.  It was basically a GTA ripoff if I recall.

Shenmue does not even remotely belong on this list. It was a very good game for its time. It wasn't a GTA ripoff at all. Mostly because it came out prior to GTA3 and it wasn't nearly as open ended as GTA is. It was however, one of the first console games with a 3d open world design. The thing that set Shenmue apart from other games of it's time is that had a very strong story that was meant to be told in several installments. Unfortunately only 2 installments were released.

It was a ground breaking game for its time and set the stage for games like GTA3, Mafia, and even other heavily story driven games.

They're talking about financial disaster, not the game as a whole. 
9428  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Gamefly used game sale on: June 18, 2008, 03:47:28 AM
So is this a limited time sale or just price reductions?  I may have to finally order Burnout Paradise, even though I was going to wait until this fall's downloadable content.
9429  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Talk me out of getting a Zune? on: June 18, 2008, 03:45:36 AM
The newer Zunes (8 and 80GB) also have the touch-sensitive front control-pad thingy, so you can swipe-scroll similar to how you would on an iPhone without smudging your screen.  Or you can tap it like the original ones, which works great as far as I'm concerned.  And as mentioned above it is also smaller with a slightly larger screen.

Having said that, the fact that the 30GB has the new firmware means that you're not really losing functionality going that (cheaper) route.

You might want to look around and see if there's any news of an updated Zune coming out soon.  IIRC it's been awhile since they updated the hardware.

The new models (8 and 80 Gig) came out last November.  

I have an older 30 GB model and I love the hardware and interface.  One of my friends who has only had iPods played with it for a while and said that he liked the interface better than his iPod, too, for what it's worth.  

The PC software kind of sucks since they took some of the functionality out of it in the November re-release, but they've added a few things back in to the new version and made it suck a bit less.
