D00D.

Running Man is an instance where the movie is better than the book er.. short story.

I liked both but actually preferred the open world adventure of the book better.  Was more emotional too, but not actiony enough for a movie.

Plus, when you look at the ending, it's allegedly our moral duty as upstanding Americans to take a dim view of that kind of thing... especially since nobody could have forseen such an event ever happening  Roll Eyes

Yeah, you will definitely never see a true to the story Running Man movie.

Tis true that now the ending could not be made without too many repercussions, but I still thought it was an appropriate finish to the story.

I did play Graw2 for a few weeks, did really well at it to, but you didn't want to do competitive, just coop and I find coop boring slywink  That's when I realized R6 is a far superior game Tongue

That's actually the box and display case for the large red veritech fighter (Miriya's)

As far as the pool trophy, you have to realize it was for a team league, and I was only on the team because they needed to meet handicap limits.  We had too many good players (scale was 2-9, we had a bunch of 5's and a 7 and 9) so they needed a 2 slywink

It was the junior cheerleaders, my niece got to perform at the halftime show and that's a picture of all the kids who went.

I moved out to the boonies and bought a house with my sister and her two kids since her ex-husband became too flaky to pay support like he should have and their lease was up on their own house.  Now I have to deal with all three of them about a million times more than I'd like to slywink  Does it still count as good karma if you whine about the deed? slywink

And I know he might not be modelled on a real world gun, but Shockwave sure looks like he'd be fair to classify as a gun:


Where did that grey shockwave come from?  That rocks.  I had only seen the purple ones.  I never really wanted anything I didn't get as a kid, didn't know I was spoiled like that until after high school.  Had pretty much any of them I wanted.  All the G1 transformers, loved Devastator a lot as a kid.  I got an AT-AT in 81 at Christmas, we also got a VCR and video camera the same year so we had (until the tape wore out) a nice video of a tiny me lifting the box that was bigger than myself and dropping it while bitching at my dad for saying Ack-ack instead of at-at. slywink

Recently I went on a kick of buying a few toys that I wanted like these (I've kinda been splurging a bit hedonistically lately as shown by these photos):

I also bought the Pepsi G1 Prime also.  I spent way more than I should have on frivolous crap, somebody stop me!

I also bought this for halloween, this is a pic of my first time wearing it...

I'm still confused why they wouldn't put any sort of competitive multiplayer in this, it's begging for some sort of ladder or arena as well as open world pvp. slywink

I found a pretty huge exploit and have informed the devs about it.  Can't reveal it yet, but I will when they tell me I can or fix it.

Sadly, without the use of scrolls I am still in a downward spiral of losses.

I just found red orchestra to be too freaking hard to aim anything other than the sniper rifle.

DoD just dropped to 9.95 which is why I fired it back up since I bought it for my niece and nephew to play with me. 

I don't notice recoil being much worse than it was in 1.3 though, maybe I just got used to it too quickly to notice.  With the realism mod I find it much more fun, you can shoot people's guns out of their hands, slow them down, call for a medic and other little touches.

I'm completely and totally sold.  This looks like a return to the classic Simpsons that I grew up with, not the 'uh...when does the funny start?' last few seasons. 

I never saw when the funny started... if someone has seen it and can tell me when it does please let me know slywink

Almost all my playtime goes into playing multiplayer, non-ranked on games that I already have all the achievements I care to get (which is usually 200/1000).  Amazed I made it high on the list this time, not even sure what happened.

I miss R6 and Forza nights, nerd points be damned

There was a redo of the book released after the movie which among other things includes updates involving the cast and such.  The author incorporated some of the movie changes into the book and it was quite an enjoyable read.
9422  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nascar 08 on: July 25, 2007, 08:27:11 PM
I did have the same problem with when you go straight after a turn and force feedback should turn off or lessen it yanks the wheel abruptly.  Very strange.

This one will probably be going back to gamefly the same day I get it.

good catch, and while true, I meant I'm enjoying the game slywink

I do have an issue with the matchmaking since my first 2 attempts at a capital ship game put me in when one side was 2% from destroyed and as soon as the game ends it puts you back at the main menu.  There is no game lobby which is a bit mindboggling.

9425  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nascar 08 on: July 25, 2007, 12:47:56 PM
I played the demo and I can't even put into words how disappointed I am.  Drives like crap, looks like crap.  Glad I'm only renting it and if it wasn't already on the way I'd cancel it from my queue.  If you're only going to do 12 person Nascar races, at least make sure it drives like a car.  It was moderately better with the controller over the wheel, but still damn near unplayable.  No replay feature was apparent either.

Going to put it behind a spoiler just for the language and because I think if you stare at it for too long you're brain is liable to run out your ears. It's just a seriously messed up love(?) letter.
Will also probably be my last for a few months. Am saving Deathly Hollows for when I go on vacation in September and I just know some idiot will ruin it with a picture.

I was never able to see the appeal of Guildwars.  I was in the open beta way back in the day, and even had the game for a while.  It always felt like it was lacking something.

For me it was the fact that every single area that had combat in it was instanced.

Yeah, it's awesome.

I meant that's what kept me from getting into it slywink
9429  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [XBLA]this week...Wing Commander Arena on: July 23, 2007, 07:48:25 PM
I understand that it's just a different type of game with WC slapped on it, but I'm fine with that.  It seems like the perfect sort of XBLA party game and this with Bomberman might be good for all of us.

Generally speaking... unless it is (or rather, was) made by Papyrus, any game with the word NASCAR on is is fairly well crap.

gellar

sadly this is very true.  I'll still get it though.

IF (and that's a big if) it has all the tracks, then they should almost all be ovals with I believe 2 road courses.  Keep in mind that the cars used in NASCAR are not very manueverable on a road course slywink  It sure ain't Forza style turning.

It's on three... that's why you say, on three, ready?

It's not, after three.

Now if you're counting down FROM three, then it's Three, Two, One, Go!

So down is a four count, but up is a three count.  slywink

I'm glad they included a tougher stunt in the demo.  I thought it was going to be too easy until I tried the ice one, that took me a few tries.  Still not sure how to get 5 stars though.
9439  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Stuntman: Ignition demo up on Live! on: July 12, 2007, 09:05:21 PM
Tried it with my wheel and it's definitely much much easier with the controller.

edit: kinda odd, if you use the wheel it's an in the cockpit view, if you use the controller it's a behind the car view.  didn't see any way to change this.  The wheel just isn't as responsive as the stick.  If there is a way to up the sensitivity then I haven't found it.  Shame
