If anyone has an extra invite, can you send me one please?

I just sent one to the email address from your profile.  If that's the wrong one let me know and I can send another.  Enjoy.  smile

I like Indy quite a bit, but that trailer didn't get me nearly as excited as I expected.  I hope it doesn't blow.

Yes, that freaking sweet soundtrack.  I wonder where one could get that?  slywink

Yeah, it's a brilliant decision to can one of their best sports series and recreate it to be all "fresh" when they run other mediocre ones into the ground year after year.

I wish the vehicular combat genre would make a comeback, I drool over the idea of a Twisted Metal for PS3.

Well then I'm sure you were happy to hear that they're working on it.  Personally I used to love those games back in the PS1 days, but I don't know if I could play them as much now.  Trying to wrangle the crappy handling just got to me after a while.  

Of course if it was an updated Interstate '76, I would buy that in a friggin heartbeat.  

Edit: Heh, looks like Bullwinkle and I are of the same mind.

I would think that oatmeal is probably the healthier choice.  Personally I like putting raisins in it for a sweet taste that also has fiber. 

Here's a random site that I found for nutrition info of Cream of Wheat.  They also have About 30 kinds of oatmeal listed, depending on if it's the instant stuff, quick-oats, natural, whatever.

I LOVE human tetris!!! Best show ever.  I don't know if Americans could do it as well as Japanese though.

I'm scared about how they'll americanize and foxize the show. Not that I know anything about it but what I've seen on youtube, but I don't really want 3 minute interviews with hulk hogan and a pre-tentious contestant, cuts to commercials when you see the holes... comments like 'she made it through the 10,000 dollar hole, but if she makes it through this hole she'll get 25,000. But if she fails, she'll go all the way back down to 5,000.

Mark my words, it will be bastardized. Everything 'reality' on american based tv is.

Word.  Not to mention all the holes will have to be round to make way for our big, fat American asses.  slywink

That Gears of War fiasco must have affected more than just the Eastern US because I was in Washington (the state) and they had the same problem.  One of the few times I've preordered and also the last. 

I've also had other cases where my preorder had not come in yet but I could go to a different store and buy it.  I generally say fuck preorders these days.

Another thought - isn't this the 3rd or 4th MMO that Microsoft said they'd publish and then backed out of?

I know that True Fantasy Online was their first, and then there was Vanguard, but I thought there was more between them...

They also cancelled Mythica in favor of Vanguard before they passed that one on.  I believe changes in management are largely believed to be behind the changes in priorities away from MMOs.

Yeah, the resolution isn't the best (to be frank, I have no idea what it puts out), but it's more than good enough to watch movies of any type.

I don't know why, but the resolution is a lot worse now for me than it was a few weeks ago.  The first time I tried it, it was near HD quality.  Last night, it was near youtube quality.  I did some tests on my internet connection and it seemed fine, so I don't get what's up. 

Did you try it with the same movie?  There could be a good chance that some movies were transferred from a worse source or encoded at a lower quality.

Ready 2 Rumble, anyone?  I had to laugh to myself reading the preview for this one how they were saying that they were trying to be so original and avoid cliches while touting characters like a slimy latin lothario and a burly, bald military guy.  Oooh, brilliant!  No wonder they can only come up with 12 of them.
9658  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 1UP going from 1-10 scale to A-F scale on: February 10, 2008, 07:53:36 AM
If you think an A+ is a range from 88-100, what the hell is an A or an A-?  When/where I went to school the whole range of A's was 90-100 or 92-100, with A+ being reserved for getting a 100% on something.

I'm always a fan of physics puzzle type games, so this is a no brainer.  The fact that it is something I can also share with my niece and nephew is icing on the cake.

On a similar (but totally unrelated) topic, I really enjoyed Blast Miner by the same guy(s) that did Bridge Builder, Gish, etc.  I'd love to see some games like that make it to XBLA.

Yeah, I think once you are past the initial 1-year warranty the service site just craps out on you.  At least that's what it did for me, even when I had the RROD covered under the 3-year warranty.

The ankle grab doesn't bother me (or the hand grab for that matter).  I'm looking forward to its use in the new Indy game, too.

Well the good thing about the Indy game is that there obviously won't be any force pushes throwing guys around like that.  Just some sweet punches to the face.

I had this amusing moment when I went by a Moe's Mexican Grill on Friday (I like them but I think Chipotle's ingredients and meats are better quality). One of the women working behind the counter kept looking up at me like she recognized me. It was only when I left that I realized, "Hey, she used to work at Chipotle!"  saywhat My dining world here is truly too small...
That exact thing happened to me, but at QDoba!

Denver and Boulder have an excellent fake Mexican place called Illegal Pete's, and they make potato burritos that are incredible. Also, unlike Chipotle and the like, they mix up the burritos before they wrap them, making them extra delicious. I miss the piss out of that place.

Hmmm, it looks like I'll be going to Boulder for burritos this weekend.  I don't know too many places to eat around here yet and that sounds good.

publishers greenlight massive new PC game projects for John Romero and Derek Smart.

imagine a team up of those two.  the game would make you their bitch but you'd be too stupid to understand it.

This could be the next big reality TV show hit. Get a bunch of infamous developers and put them together to make a game. G4 could air it.  icon_lol

G4 would probably be off the air before that game ever got finished.  slywink

It's the original game with some added content like some new side quests/areas and stuff.  I enjoyed it and it's probably a little more complete game than the original release but don't expect something completely different.

I thought it was pretty good, but I'm interested to see where it goes.  It alsmost seems like they were aiming for Showtime or something with the nudity (blurred) and swearing (blanked).  Like a slightly darker version of Weeds, I guess, although it's harder to sympathize/identify with a meth cook. 

I caught the first part of it last night before being interrupted and then found out it was also available on Comcast on-demand (in HD even) so I started that up.  Maybe I just wasn't paying as much attention the first time, but it seemed there were little parts in that version that I didn't see when just watching it on AMC.  Like his wife giving him a hand-job in bed after the birthday party.

Too bad I already bought one of those on clearance at Target a few months ago so I already have the worthless extra headset and Joust. 

I see you can also get a wired 360 controller for $18.  Not bad if you just want an extra for your PC or something.

Speaking of cookies, our HR lady was actually baking chocolate-chip cookies in the office yesterday and it made the whole building smell good all day.  It was sooo hard to pass those up, but I did. 

My hard part isn't the week, where I'm at work for 10+ hours a day and eating normally, but on the weekends I tend to just eat crap all day long if I'm at home and that tanks me hard.  Pizza, chips, chocolate, whatever.  When I'm bored I easily fall victim to cravings.  I think I need to work 7 days a week or something.
