Robbins and Sarandon: Holding hands in first class.

The Shawshank Redemption
The Hudsucker Proxy
The Player
High Fidelity


I think Robbins should get a pass just for the first two films - although there is the "Mission to Mars" factor against him.


Sarandon can burn, and hopefully she'll take all known copies of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" with her.

Joss Whedon - so maybe, finally, someday internet geeks will stop talking about Firefly.  It's over, move on

Julia Roberts - Hopefully there's enough room on the shuttle for her grotesque horse face

Tom, Katie and Suri - Katie hasn' done anything of note in years and if I want to see her boobs I can google.  Tom is overexposed and whacko.  Suri needs to go before she has a chance to further the Cruise line. 

Michael Bay  - so very many crappy movies

How lucky my Steelers got in the Super Bowl...AGAIN! 

At least this part is true.

If Larry Johnson could have just thrown one block against Dallas then Trent Green never would have fumbled before the half and the Chiefs would have won that game, giving them the final playoff spot in the AFC and forcing Pittsburgh to watch the playoffs from home.

You will if you do more than play for two minutes and cry when you see ASCII.

Man up.

I keep reading about this game so I downloaded it to my work laptop.

40 minutes after I launched the game  it was still trying to generate a world.

The extra cool part is there's no way to stop it and task manager couldn't even kill it.  I wound up having to unplug and pull the battery from my laptop to kill  the damn thing.

F that noise.

Come to think of it; I've not yet seen Priest Holmes playing in the three games I've used KC -- it's only given me Larry Johnson (who isn't exactly shabby).

He's second on the depth chart.

Unless Larry Johnson gets hurt for four weeks like in my franchise.    crybaby

I know that KC doesn't have Ty Law as of yet, and one kicker I used in preseason wasn't ever on the roster as far as I know (not Gramatica or our rookie; some other guy)...

Not to mention KC still has Priest Holmes and Willie Roaf.


No way in hell I'm ever updating my rosters.  I like my world much better than the real one.

My biggest problem with the Xbox 360 version (ok, problems...) are no accelerated clock, and no in game saves or sim to end option.  With a wife/kid playing uninterrupted football doesnt happen smile  Also no way to change the camera angles that I can see.  These probably arent a big deal to alot of folks, but for me their almost a dealbreaker.  

-dback

Weird - I can save in-game with the PC version. 

I hope they don't take that out when they upgrade the PC version to the 'next gen' engine - which probably will happen around Madden09
373  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How about some GT Madden 07 impressions! on: August 23, 2006, 03:20:54 PM
I bought the PC version last night for $27.00. (no 360 anytime in the near future for me).

It's a lot like last year's Madden, although the new field textures are beautiful and the game seems to run smoother at 1280x1024 on my 3200+/7600GT.

Superstar mode is fun but has some glaring bugs:

-Accelerated clock doesn't work when you aren't on the field.
-It seems very difficult to rack up influence/points as a defensive player.  I only played practice and one quarter of the first preseason game but I was losing points every time the offense gained yards.  Doesn't seem fair

See, I feel the same way about Diablo 3.

How many hundreds of RTS games have appeared since Starcraft?

How many Diablo clones?

You RTS people have a wealth of crappy games to choose from.  We Diablo fans have to chose among Dungeon Seige, Sacred and freakin Harbinger.

At least Fate threw us a bone last year.   Tongue

As for Diablo 2, I cannot go back to it since I have never played it.  Maybe if I can get it real real cheap I might do so.  Sounds like Guild Wars might not be for me.  I just didn't want to pay for the WoW service, so that is out.  Thanks for the info guys.


If you don't want to get Diablo 2, you can always download FATE for $20.

It has no mutliplayer, but it sounds like you're a solo player so that's no loss.

It certainly could be done legally. The agent in your example would setup the tap and within 72 hours some lawyer from the NSA would step in front of the FISA court, inform them of the tap and the reasons and get the retro-active warrant.

Yes, the agent that intercepts an Outlook email invite for the next day has plenty of time.  The agent that finds an ongoing call, or one immediately to happen, has no time.


No time to do what?

The warrants can be acquired up to 72 hours after the wiretap.  

The agent can tap an outgoing call without delay and still apply for a FISA warrant.

The full game runs fine on my aging 1.6 Ghz PIV with 512 MB of PC-133 RAM once I turned graphics down to "medium".   I can't see a difference in quality, but it went from bogging down in the end-game to running nice and smoothly.

EDIT - you might also turn off the in-game music and see if that helps speed things up.

Two separate excerpts from the article on CNN:

But DeLay countered that assessment later in a news conference by saying that the onus for responding to emergencies fell to local officials.

"It's the local officials trying to handle the problem. When they can't handle the problem, they go to the state, and the state does what they can to, and if they need assistance from FEMA and the federal government they ask for it and it's delivered," DeLay said.



Apparently DeLay has never perused the DHS website

Quote
In the event of a terrorist attack, natural disaster or other large-scale emergency, the Department of Homeland Security will assume primary responsibility on March 1st for ensuring that emergency response professionals are prepared for any situation. This will entail providing a coordinated, comprehensive federal response to any large-scale crisis and mounting a swift and effective recovery effort.

The real obstacle is distribution.  Most stores won't stock games rated AO.  You could circumvent this through direct distribution (which I believe VU did with the AO version of the latest Leisure Suit Larry game) but it cuts out a sizable market.


Good point.  I was in Target today and they had a sign taped to the glass display booth saying that GTA:SA was no longer available because Target policy is to not stock AO rated games.

Which is doubly embarrassing for Target, since the sign implied they had put GTA:SA in their weekly ad.   :oops:

What exactly does "Vista" bring to the table?

From the few articles I've read, it seems the main differences are in the GUI.  They take advantage of 3D cards to introduce animation and transparent windows.

Last I heard they yanked WinFS from the O/S and plan to introduce it as a "Free Addition" after release.

Without WinFS, what is the motivation to upgrade?
