881  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Silent Hunter 3 uses Starforce protection on: March 15, 2005, 01:46:18 AM
Some specualtion is that it's only European copies that have SF, and even then it's not quite clear.  We'll find out for sure on Wednesday if it's in the US release.
882  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / you're next gen games will probably cost a lot more on: March 05, 2005, 01:25:02 AM
Some games cost that much back in the late '80s to early '90s (which I paid).  Adjusted for inflation, that's probably close to 100 of today's dollars.  I have no problem paying that for a great game.
883  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / X2: The Threat on: February 28, 2005, 01:34:48 AM
Also make sure you put the latest patch on.  It fixes a TON.

LOL....John and Martha King lost all credibility with me when they were introduced as Rick Rockwell's BEST FRIENDS on "Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire".
885  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Essential 50 Games on: February 22, 2005, 08:38:35 PM
The early 90's NHL series for Sega Genesis should have been on that list.
886  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Can anyone answer this? Resolution related. on: February 17, 2005, 04:18:29 PM
I also always use 85.
887  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / City Of Heros $14.99 at Best Buy on: February 15, 2005, 05:36:33 PM
That promotion sounds good.  Can you post the link?
888  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Actor Tom Sizemore Fails Drug Test with Fake Penis on: February 12, 2005, 03:08:30 PM
I wonder if he gave himself an extra 8 inches.
889  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Netflix delays shipping of high volume customers on: February 11, 2005, 09:53:10 PM
Well, Netflix is continuing their crap.  My queue showed a movie shipping on Wednesday, the 9th.  TODAY (the 11th) I get the e-mail that it shipped and sure enough my mailbox at home was empty.  Mail from Lansing to the Detroit area takes one day every time.  Should have been here on the 10th, but they held it for 2 days (assuming I get it tomorrow, the 12th).

Do NOT say "Shipping Today" when that clearly is not the case.  I find it hilarious that during everyone's two-week trial, all movies only take a day to reach you.  After that.....all bets are off.

The BB card might be good for me, but I hate going to the actual BB store.
890  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Netflix delays shipping of high volume customers on: February 10, 2005, 10:04:07 PM
Agreed.  If they have a cap, they need to state it.  Not make you think you're getting all you can view.

If Netflix is worried about pirates then they need to institute a cap.  Otherwise, it's open season and they need to deliver what they promise.
891  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DVD audio ripping - any thoughts? on: February 04, 2005, 08:26:42 PM
I use "#1 DVD Audio Ripper" to convert all my concert DVD's to WAV's and then to MP3's.  Awesome program.
892  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Simple KOTOR 2 Question on: February 01, 2005, 09:48:02 PM
Considering KOTOR1 on the PC was better than on the Xbox, I figure the same will hold true for KOTOR2.  I'd wait and get it on the PC.

I'd like to try, but newborns leave little free time.


Ditto here.  I usually can't commit to a specific night or time anymore.  All my single buddies are pissed.
894  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / AVG 7.0 Free Edition on: January 29, 2005, 06:29:38 PM
It's been hanging the past two weeks for me.  I think their site is getting hammered.
895  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Need some advice on Xbox Live and Wireless Accessories on: January 29, 2005, 05:19:16 PM
Not a package, but can't you pick up the 12 month card for 50 bucks?

Personally, I think I'm going to look at Logitech's wireless headset.  I think it's around 70 or 80 bucks.

896  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Biggest eBay Pet Peeve!!! on: January 29, 2005, 04:50:23 PM
Good examples Laner.

Honestly, if all that shit happened to me I don't think I would even bother selling stuff on Ebay.
897  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Biggest eBay Pet Peeve!!! on: January 29, 2005, 02:22:25 PM
How many times does this happen though?  Not many I would guess.

I used to leave feedback (as a buyer) whenever I received the item, but got sick and tired of the seller NOT leaving feedback on my payment.  The seller would enjoy my positive feedback on them, but I would get jackshit.
898  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / WOW in stock today at EB Games on: January 29, 2005, 12:55:50 AM
Called the Northville, MI store at 3:30pm and they had one copy left.  I drove across the street (I can see EB from my office window) and bought it.  Damn thing was open and gutted.  Usually I would give a shit about EB's policy, but not this time.

On a related note, both EB and BB had a crapload of EQ2 boxes on the shelves.
899  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Do you ever wish you could change the outcome of a movie? on: January 26, 2005, 03:03:47 AM
What I wanna know is why the damn eagle didn't just fly them all TO Mount Doom from the start.  It took them home so it sure as hell could have dropped them off there.
900  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Biggest eBay Pet Peeve!!! on: January 26, 2005, 02:14:08 AM
What is the percentage of getting screwed over by a buyer?  Close to nil?  Sure it can happen, but more than likely it will not.  You are penalizing the majority of good, upstanding buyers by withholding feedback on the minute chance of getting screwed.  That's unfair to the majority playing by the rules.

Likewise, I refuse to leave feedback as a buyer for a seller that has not left feedback on my payment.  I completed my end of the bargain first and they need to recognize that.

As a seller, I have ALWAYS left feedback upon payment.  I haven't been screwed as a seller since I started in '98.
901  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Biggest eBay Pet Peeve!!! on: January 25, 2005, 10:03:54 PM
I can't remember where we discussed this before.....either here or at OO.

As a seller, you should IMMEDIATELY leave feedback when the buyer pays.  The buyer completed his end of the transaction....end of story.

903  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Girls and Gaming on: January 22, 2005, 12:23:17 AM
During my first marriage, my ex-wife was addicted to the 7up Spot game on Sega Genesis.  She also loved Tetris.

Get one of those games that make her think.......like the others mentioned.

I don't know if it's getting older or my beer consumption, but I can't remember things like I used to.
905  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Do you ever wish you could change the outcome of a movie? on: January 21, 2005, 08:22:21 PM
Star Wars:

Luke's final tordepo shot misses.  The Death Star blows Yavin to smithereens taking Leia, C3PO, R2D2, and the Rebellion right along with it.

No other movies are made, thus ensuring that the world never has the pleasure of meeting Jar Jar Binks.

EVERYONE should order Planescape and Fallout at these prices.  That's unbelievable.

Do you really think that the governement really cares how much the fund at Amazon?  If you do I have a nice piece of property to sell you.



I was being sarcastic Graham.

And yes Laner....I will let it go.   :wink:
917  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / PS2 on Ebay?? on: January 01, 2005, 05:57:34 PM
Why not just order from EB or Gamestop via the web?  Seems simpler to me.
918  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / You can donate to Red Cross for Tsunami relief at Amazon on: January 01, 2005, 04:01:00 AM
It's funny they went from 15 mill to 35 mill to all of a sudden 350 mill.

Somebody woke up to the fact they were cheap asses when just Amazon was about to pass their initial aid.
919  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / You can donate to Red Cross for Tsunami relief at Amazon on: January 01, 2005, 01:20:58 AM
The US started feeling sheepish after seeing this thread.   :wink:

Seriously though, 35 mill was bullshit.
920  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Need a little eBay help here. on: December 31, 2004, 09:28:48 PM
Well, they are still going to leave negative feedback regardless.  You are only withholding your feedback to see if you can get back at the scammers if need be.  That's unfair to the majority that are completing their end of the deal.

My own personal feedback should probably be about 70-90 points higher but isn't because the seller was waiting for me (the buyer) to post feedback first.  Ain't gonna happen, especially when I completed my end first.
