I have the extended warranty with them and they are sending me a shipping box, BUT they said the turn around time is 3-5 business WEEKS!!!! WTF? That is crazy...

That's down from when I sent in mine a couple weeks ago.  At that point it was 4-6 weeks.  My unit has been shipped back and confirmed received, but I have no idea where in the repair/replace process it is.  I'll be pretty surprised if I get it back before the end of the month.  Good thing there's nothing being released that I'm absolutely dying to get.

Ahem, back on topic:

OK, so maybe he didn't quite "walk it off"

Quote
Skateboarder Jake Brown, whose 45-foot free-fall Thursday night brought a hush to the crowd at Staples Center, remains hospitalized after suffering bruises of the liver and lung, stress fractures in his vertebrae and a small fracture on the top of one hand.

Ouch.

Quote
Kanights was critical of X Games medical personnel for not immobilizing Brown immediately and placing him in a stretcher.

This struck me as bizzare as well.  You'd think that would be a standard precautionary measure, if nothing else.

There was a PS1 version of the original.  I would love a DS or PSP remake.

Interesting to know that there is a hard mode,and an impossible mode,so therefor maybe we should expect perhaps an easy and medium mode as well....i wonder which difficulty the demo was in..........felt close to impossible to me,lol

Didn't the demo give an option of "Normal" or "Hard" mode?  I only got to play it once before my 360 died, but I thought I remembered that...

There's supposedly a cell phone version of "Guitar Hero" coming out.  That could prove...interesting.

I don't think you've expressed your dislike of GH3 enough yet.

Huh?   icon_confused

I loved the initial song announcement .  The game certainly isn't in "dislike" territory yet, but I am really questioning their decisions.  I just think they're taking the series in some pretty poor directions, both with this weak (imho) announcement of tracks and the design decisions (boss battles, power ups, etc.).  The DLC fiasco and PS2 exclusivity for this gen certainly haven't helped strengthen any loyalty towards the brand either.

Gametap is also getting DIRT and Clive Barker's Jericho when it's released, according to Worthplaying.

Glad I waited on DIRT. 

Man, Gametap is really starting to roll out the big guns now.  It's gone from a fun place to play around with "retro" games, to pretty much a no-brainer subscription for anyone interested in gaming.   Looks like the weeks of 6 Freddy Fish games being the only thing on the release schedule are long gone (thankfully).  I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that they'll do my renewal at the same price as last year ($60 for the whole year).
10456  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Picross DS on: July 31, 2007, 07:57:35 PM
I'm intrigued by this, but I'm afraid it will go the way of most DS puzzle games for me.  They're fun for the first couple days, then I never pick them up again.  This has happened on everything but Puzzle Quest for me (Brain Age, Meteos, etc.).

Making it harder to resist. DQ4 is one of my all time faves, and I always wanted to play 5 and 6.

You don't have a DS yet?
Um, no. I can't think of a single game currently out on it I have any interest in playing. In case I haven't made it abundantly clear, I am not Nintendo's target market  icon_wink

If it makes you feel any better, I do have a DS and there's not a single game I have any interest in playing.  smile  However, there's a metric shit-ton of RPG's coming out in the next 6-12 months.  Future potential is really the only reason I've held onto the damn thing.

Well, that and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

Wow, nice job fellas.  I've been telling myself every Monday for the past couple months that this is the week I finally get started with an exercise plan.  Problem is, I have to workout in the mornings before work, and I just haven't been able to get myself motivated yet to wake up at 4:45am.  I'm sure it'll become easier once I get started, but just have not been able to get up the gumption to start the first few days.

Maybe it'll actually be this week...
10461  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starcraft 2 hands on preview on: July 31, 2007, 02:54:47 AM
Honestly, is it really going to matter what the game is like?  As long as it says "Starcraft II" on the box, it will sell a gazillion copies.  Sucks for us gamers looking for a little innovation, but pretty smart from a business sense.

If you're practically handed the license to print money, why take risks by changing the formula?

10465  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: September 07 EGM reviews (Lair, Blue Dragon, Mario Strikers) on: July 30, 2007, 03:24:02 AM
I wonder if reviewers are going to be much tougher on Blue Dragon simply due to the big names involved in creating it.  I'm hoping reviewers are judging the game on it's own merits, and not what they expect it to be.   Unless BD gets bad reviews across the board, it will still be a day-one purchase for me.

I'm also pretty psyched about the Squeenix and Level 5 RPG news.  That Jeanne D'arc review is making it harder and harder to resist a PSP.

The raised notch on the yellow fret is your best friend.  I typically move my hand up or down, but make sure I've got one finger planted on the notch so I know where I'm at.

As cliche as it is, the only way you'll get used to or comfortable with it is lots of practice.

What Growlanser game is coming out in August?

Growlanser V. Atlus is putting it out themselves. It's supposed to be a self-contained story, not related to any of the previous games, so the fact that IV never made it to the US shouldn't hurt the experience.

Hmmm, might have to give that one a look.  While not the greatest RPG's, I stlil quite enjoyed the pack they put out a couple years back (Generations?  It had 2 & 3.).  Thanks for the heads-up.

Salt Lake is usually 95-105 F in the summer and 20-40 F in the winter.  Both spring and fall are 60-70's.  I hate the summer (I generally despise hot weather in general), but the rest of the year is really quite nice.  Very low humidity as well, which helps.

Weather.com says it's 85 today, but after spending the morning outside, I can guarantee it's hotter than that.

I'd recommend starting Throne of Bhaal sooner rather than later.  It's quite hard and I had a difficult time playing it after my knowledge and skills about BG2 atrophied between releases. 

that's a very good point.  you'll probably have a much easier time if you play ToB while you're still familiar with your party and the game mechanics as a whole.  some of the battles in ToB are very challenging and will push your party strategy to its limits.  going into action like that once you're forgotten the abilities of your party members can be a little tricky.

I thought about that, but I'm pretty Baldur's Gate-ed out right now.  As great as the game is, I feel like I just went 10 rounds with the champ to wrap it up.  I'm sure the Infinity Engine mood will strike again soon (it always does), and I'll try and get back into it.
