Pizza keeps for a long time, it's sort of the beef jerky of Italian food.   Unless you ordered one with anchovies, which I doubt since I don't think a pizza with anchovies would be left out overnight by accident.

Pizza is italian?!

Behold the History of Pizza.

Well they put the trees back in Sea-Tac.  And to clear things up, the paper today said that the rabbi didn't request that they pull down the Christmas trees, he just wanted the right to put up the menorah also.  He/they will not be suing (which was a threat used after weeks of getting stonewalled), but Sea-Tac officials are apparently still not going to be putting up a menorah and have said "We'll talk next year".  Way to go, guys.

My only problem with B&N is that it costs $25 for their 10% off membership, which means you have to buy at least $250 worth of books in a year to make it worthwhile and their books are usually more expensive than you can find elsewhere.  Yes, you get those emails with 30% off select books and crap, but they are usually just a few hardcover versions of mass-market crap I don't want anyway.

I do that all the time and I see no problem with it.  Some people think it's gross or weird, but I've never had a problem and in fact I get sick a lot less than most of those people.  icon_wink

I honestly don't understand why they don't just copy the Achievements concept wholesale.  I think that Achievements are absolutely brilliant, and I know I'll miss them when I finally do get a PS3 if they don't implement something similar.

I agree.  to completionists, it's a major draw surprisingly

The problem is that with the 360 this was a system-wide decision made well before launch.  Sony could patch similar functionality into their system for future game releases but when there aren't standards on points or it isn't a mandatory inclusion in every game it loses some of it's draw.  I don't want this to turn into an anti-Sony post or anything, but I do have to give Microsoft props for some well though-out and implemented elements in the overall package.  Surprising, really. 

What sort of headset do you guys use with your PS3?  I haven't seen any advertised or shown (Sony branded or otherwise), and I found that pretty odd.

So, part of me says "Buy Now" and part of me says "Wait for the must-have games and (hopefully) a more stable system".  So torn...

If there's a definite sign that MS is releasing 3rd gen 360's (or 2nd, but I remember hearing they're on the 2nd gen arlready) I'd wait.  However, unless they make major cosmetic changes, how you'd be able to tell what gen they are is beyond me.

They have a manufactured date and serial number you can check right on top of the box.

Wanna see an awful show set in the most ungodly boring sci-fi universe ever imagined by man?  Watch the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Fixed, because Star Trek as a whole fucking sucks.

And yes, the Firefly cast rules.

That may be true (albeit opinion), but it is MORE true of that first season.  Jesus...I'd rather have rough sex with a bear trap than watch that again.

Don't go hating on bear traps just because Star Trek sucks! 
9614  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 -- Keep it or sell it? on: December 09, 2006, 08:37:02 PM
It sounds like you're looking for a reason to keep it, msduncan, and if that's the case just do so and enjoy it.  It may not be what I would do, but my situation is different than yours as is everybody elses.  You should be able to get some great playtime out of a couple new games and some PS2 games until the next wave of releases hits next spring. 

To clarify on what Hetz said, the Japanese version of Motorstorm (without online) will be released next week.  The US version with online won't be out until March at least.

9620  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PS3 -- Keep it or sell it? on: December 08, 2006, 03:54:46 PM
If it were me I would probably sell it for a few reasons.  First, it seems like you probably have lots of other gaming to do with the Wii, 360 and PC and there isn't quite enough unique content to justify the purchase yet (to me).  I also avoid the launch hardware game of Russian roulette.  

More importantly,  perhaps, is the fact that it would please your wife to be able to buy you surprises instead of you buying this for yourself right now.

Funny thing, I'm absolutely terrible at bowling in real life (avg 70s, best is around 120s).  My high in Wii bowling is 212 with a pretty consistent 190s.  I'll let you know how I do next time I hit a bowling alley.

Well, don't feel too bad if you don't triple your regular score.  There is a slight difference between moving a remote back and forth and hitting a button and doing the approach with correct movement and release of a ball of up to 16 pounds.  icon_wink

I remember when I first found these videos online way back before there was YouTube or "viral" anything.  On dialup from my freshman dorm room.  That would have been '96-'97.  Awww, yeah.  Good times.  icon_biggrin

I think there were about 13 of these things, but not nearly that many are on YouTube that I can see.

There is a volunteer PC recycling group here in town (Free Geek) that will take computers or parts and rebuild them into usable computers and give them away to individuals or non-profit organizations.  Any parts that are broken or can't be reused are responsibly recycled.

A lot of my older parts find their way into my family's computers since even my old gamer gear is usually faster than their stuff.

Yeah, I actually agree with Kobra, there are a lot of good Euro games out there.  I remember Earth 2150 (I believe that was the first one) was a dang good experience.  Colin McRae Rally was really fun (until the evil starforce came with it), and lets not forget The Guild 2.  Indigo Prophecy was a Euro game also and got generally good marks.  Don't generalize all of Euro gaming into one clump due to a few bad games.  I could also say that EA makes all of the American games look bad too. 

Agreed on those games.  Also, Jowood published Rally Trophy (from the makers of FlatOut 1/2) and that was a pretty sweet, bug-free game.
