I know plenty of people that use the term MILF to imply any attractive woman who has kids or is old enough to have kids.

I have the env2 and couldn't be happier.  The screen inside is pretty large and the only use for the one outside is to see the number you're dialing or who is calling. 

In 3 weeks I'm averaging about 5 people a week asking me what the name of the phone is and where they can get one.

just finished Titan Quest on 'normal' tonight...decent enough game, but i did feel like it was getting a little monotonous toward the end.  by the time i was halfway through Egypt i had most of the equipment that i used through to the end of the game thanks to a few lucky loot drops , and my Ranger (hunter/nature) was pretty much unstoppable up until the final battle with his bow and two feral wolf helpers.  the variation in enemies and scenery helped me push on to the end, but i can't see myself playing it again on the harder difficulties any time soon.  even if they do change up the enemies and loot quite a bit, it's still just more clicking on enemies for another 30 hours.

as for the ending, the final boss fight was pretty lame...one enemy that throws a few big attacks that can kill almost instantly, can leech your health and energy, and who has a ton of hit points is not my idea of fun.  there really wasn't any strategy involved other than using statues as cover and drinking somewhere around 50 greater health potions as i ran in circles to keep from getting hit.  i heard they changed the final battle with a patch because people complained it was too easy...would much rather have fought it the original way when you could actually weaken the onslaught a bit. 

i will admit that it was worth finishing just to hear Bang Camaro's Rock of Mages playing over the credits though

Sounds like you don't have the expansion.  IMO the game gets drastically better in Act IV and then again through epic.  The biggest downpoint of each run through is always the boss of the original game.

Regarding the ferry scene; did you guys think that even though he said the other ferry would explode when the switch was pulled, it would actually blow up their own ship?  That's what I figured was going to happen.  The ol' Joker switch-a-roo.

No, that doesn't work. The Joker spends most of the movie trying to get people to willfully commit evil deeds. The (relatively) evil thing to do is to blow up the other boat.  If you want to encourage chaos and selfishness, you have to reward it; not punish it. 

Agreed, but when I was watching the film I did indeed have the same guess that leo did.

same here.  I was hoping that idiot guy on the non-prison ship would grab the remote and hit it only to blow himself up after the prisoner threw out their remote.  It still would have been an evil deed because whoever triggered the remote would be killing others while trying to save their own ass.

I was kinda hoping that the detonator itself was the only thing rigged to blow and it would kill whoever pushed the button smile

This is spot on.  I thought the imagery was really appropriate to the series.  I only wish they had shown the scenes where you had to find your way through the maze while tripping.  THAT was odd.

It's not really based ont he 80's toy line, it's based on the TV show that came out 5-10 years ago that was based very loosely on the 80's toy line.  They changed pretty much everything except the modular aspects and the name for the TV show.

I would like to say that I think it's funny how many people are excited about being able to download games to their Xbox HDs, when a small PS3 install makes then want to slit their wrists.

The difference to me is the 'optional' part... combined with how long the installs take.

So far Ride the Lightning and Run to the Hills are the only two I can't drum on Hard.  Really pissing me off too. lol

Expert I get stuck on a lot more of them due to double and triple kicks and off-beat kicks. I just don't find the pedal responsive enough for me to do the triples or the rapid doubles after each other.

one of the single port filters that you normally plug a phone device into? and it stopped the discos? even though theoretically with the filter in place, it shouldn't work at all?

bwah?

TheAtomicKid

ps: you're lucky the lightning didn't eat your computer :/

heh, I'm confused as well.  The filters are supposed to block the DSL signal compeltely which as TAK said should prevent the DSL from working at all if it's on a filtered line.  Not sure what's going on there. Not 100% if it's even possible, but maybe the DSL signal coming into your house is too strong and thus the need for the filter to bring it down to a 'normal' level.  Do you hear any static or other noise on your phone handsets?

I was quite amazed (and saddened) when I saw how much stuff I've bought through Live.

Counting Rock Band tracks I've easily spent over $1000 total.  I have 40ish Arcade games, plenty of expansions and addons and all but a couple RB tracks.

I REALLY wish I could get a 120gb HDD for a reasonable price, they'd more than make up the difference in money I'd spend on filling it up. slywink

My 20gb is down to about 1gb free with all my demos deleted and when RB2 hits I'm goign to be out of room completely.

I am going to be curious to see the difference in media between the 360 and PS3 versions of FF13. Wasn't FF13's massive number of movies one of the things Sony was touting about in using Blu-Ray as their storage medium? Will the PS3 version come on 1 disc while the 360 comes out on like 10?

don't forget that part of the new dashboard features for the fall update is to be able to copy disks to the HDD.  I wouldn't be surprised if FFXIII is multidisk, but you only need to keep disk 1 in if you copy the rest to the HDD.

Fuck. FMV prerender; no gameplay.

http://www.gametrailers.com/game/9022.html#Content

Kinda weak.

That doesn't look like CGI to me... looks in-engine.

If it is pre-rendered CGI, t

then it's pretty shitty quality.

+1  that's not CGI, that's at the very most in game cutscenes. anyone who thinks otherwise really needs to upgrade their PC or get into consoles.


What I meant to say is that it's NOT in-game engine as there is no GAME. It's predetermined sequences recorded for story and if they ran it through their engine then bully for them; they could say they ran it through a coffee machine and I'd have no frame of reference to compare it to.

Freakin' percolated videos that show it as being a LoTR knockoff.

THIS SHALL NOT PASS (Purge's acceptability criteria).

Then you shouldn't say 'prerendered' slywink  The word has a definition and the definition does not include real-time rendering.

a lot of that is because you've played WoW and AoC slywink

I had a lot more fun with TQ than with Sacred.

I'm now on my first play through of Epic difficulty and am surprised that I'm still having fun.  I HATE replaying games and would have bet almost any amount of money that I would never play through even with a second character type, let alone through the same story with the same character on harder.  It's a blast.

Looking forward to playing with some of you guys.  It's nice that they throw in a couple extra bosses on Epic and a couple more on Legendary.  Got my first Legendary drop right off the bat in Epic and it is keeping me going.
