2121  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / This just in: 24 is AWESOME on: January 30, 2006, 09:29:58 AM
I honestly liked each season as much as the others. A incredible show.
2122  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Book Of Daniel... on: January 30, 2006, 09:26:58 AM
Well, first of all... I didn`t plan on watching this until I heard some people crying over it before the first episode aired. I watched and enjoyed the full 2 hours of its premiere. Great show. Funny, interesting, easy timeslot to keep ( one would think...). The wife and I watching 2 or 3 more hour long weeks of this very intertaining show. After last years episode they advertised for next weeks. Next week comes around, and ... they say "catch the remaining episodes on"... Uggg.

 If you poke around the forums over there on NBC, or watch the`ll see all of the crazy people that bitched about this show and got it canned. It showed a family with religion in their lives, but the catch was the family wan`t perfect. The Dad, addiction to "pills", and talks to Jesus...literally. Jesus`s part is/was written well, funny, and tasteful. The daughter got caught selling pot. The one kid is gay, and the another is asian and adopted. The house keeper smokes pot for her medical condition. The mom drinks boatloads... The whole show was very tastleful though, and very entertaining.
 Anyone else like this show until they pulled it? Oh and BTW you can watch all of the unaired episodes on every friday night I believe until they are all gone. I`m suprised there hasn`t been a topic of this here yet.

 Don`t like it, don`t watch it...right? You`d think so anyway...

Thanks for the caring words all. It helps me feel better seeing them. I almost did'nt write it. Posting something like that on a public msg board is a little strange. But Im glad I did after all.

 First of all, I`m sorry to hear about you lose as it`s clear he`ll be missed. While I agree with you about posting that on a public msg board is a bit strange, but who cares. I`ve done it. If it makes you feel better, than what else matters. This place is not-quite-like-your-ordinary-msg-board kinda place anyways :wink: . One thing to think about too... I can say that if I live to 90 I`ll be pretty happy, not too bad at all. Sorry to hear that though.

2129  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - GOLD - Ships 3/20!! on: January 22, 2006, 02:47:56 AM
I was going to grab this on the 360, but I`m not getting one of those for awhile still...but my B-day is in March...Hmmm...I think my system can run this good enough. Is there anyone here that plans on grabbing the PC version of this that has a similar system as mine? Here it is-> p4 3.0ghz, 1gb ddr, 6800gt 256mb, sb audigy 2 etc. If so, I`ll be thrilled to here how it plays on it once this game comes out. I`ll wait for the me to get a 360 if I need to...BUT, if it runs good enough on this, well then...I obviously grab it on PC :wink: .

I`ve read most of this over the last month or so and I can`t remember if I`ve come across the answers... Random question # 1 and so on...
 Where do I plant a coconut? I planted it on the beach, but it doesn`t have enough room...Does anything grow on the beach? Can I plant coconuts just where I`d plant any other tree?
2134  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / M and L: partners in time! on: January 17, 2006, 11:18:24 PM
Hehe. I finally picked this one up. What a great game. It looks like it will be my favorite out of the Mario RPG games so far that I`ve played. By the look of this, hell, I`ll prolly even replay it!
2135  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Any Zappa fans here...? on: January 12, 2006, 10:28:50 PM
I`ll take note of all of that. There`s alot of good stuff out there, but also some bad.  Alot of hit and miss with FZ, or anything else that crazy. Same with alot of shows. Hit and miss. Anywho, thanks ,I`ll check out that stuff.
2136  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Dogs - What Breed? on: January 12, 2006, 08:02:23 AM
Quote from: "Darren8r"
Not to discourage you, but dont get a dog........... Right away.

I have a dog, but to keep him alive, he costs my family the same as a child. And more, I have to clean up his own crap, feed him 3 times a day, fill his water atleast 6 times a day, give him his innsoline shot at 8am and 8pm(daily) and if I miss giving him that i come home to step in a puddle of urine on the floor, and I get blamed for it! Anyways, thats just the daily routine. And I noticed you and your wife want to get dogs, in your new house, like that carpet you got there? Not for long, you'll have to replace it in a week.

ANYWAYS, I love dogs, ^^^^ all that must make it sound like I hate them, but I love them, my dog is apart of the family.

Ok so maybe I'm just suggesting, break in your new home before you start putting other things on your plate.

 I also agree here on some points. My dog takes medicine 3 times a day. It costs alot of money, and effort. He goes to the Vet for bloodwork frequently. It used to be every month, but since he is more stable it is less often. He had a blood transfusion, cancer treatment, a nervous system problem. That was alot of money, and effort, and heartache...
 Now don`t get me wrong, I`m thrilled he`s here and doing good and we love him a crazy amount, but that`s alot of work. That`s not as "fun" as it sounds when you first think of getting a dog. We had a 18 month kitty we had to put down almost 3 months ago, and that was brutal.
 My point is that it is great to have pets. I freakin` love mine, don`t get me wrong. But they are a HUGE responsibility. HUGE. I don`t have kids so I can`t compare...but...Pets are a HUGE responsibilty, with lots of rewards!

 That just seems like alot on your plate at once.

 Sorry to be so negative Tongue

I`m just curious. I`ve been into Zappa for a long while but, wow...recently I`ve been listening to LOTS of it. Too much almost! :wink:
 I just picked up Tinseltown rebellion, and wow another great disk. I`ve been listening to ALOT of one size fits all, and weasels ripped my flesh.
 Any recommendations of some good Zappa disks anyone?

especially considering you can hook up a usb mouse and keyboard to it and rumors of the hard drive including linux and web browsing..

Rumor also has it that the PS3 will make toast, coffee, and a hell of a good martini.

I just can't help thinking of all the hype that surrounded the PS2 during development. I will not believe anything about the PS3 until I see it with my own eyes.

2142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Animal crossing reviews and hopefully impressions! on: January 02, 2006, 07:55:46 PM
The wife got one and is REALLY enjoying it so far. But wow, Animal Crossing was hard to find. We must have called 15 stores and we found ONE. We think it was a return at that.  I heard that they (nintendo) is out of `em!!! :shock:  More of the game isn`t supposed to be in stores until the 15th of this month. Get this EB is taking preorders for a game that has been out for over a month.
2143  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What did you get for Christmas? on: December 28, 2005, 06:14:35 AM
We do ALOT smaller than we used to , and it is WAY better, but that`s a whole new discussion :wink: . My wife and I got a MKDS Bundle w/ ultimate spiderman DS and a intec accessories package of sorts. Now that we both have DS`s , it `s crazy around here! I got some Zappa discs I didn`t have, and my wife got the new 311 disc, not too bad. Heh. My pets got a $40.00 gift card, heh. And, there were a few more things. A shirt etc. But it was pretty "under control" this year, and actually enjoyable! Much more enjoyable!
2144  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ultimate Spiderman DS (good bundle) on: December 27, 2005, 11:10:38 PM
Well, my wife got a Mario Kart bundle and it came with and intec case and accessories and whatnot. It also came with Ultimate Spiderman DS. All of this was just the price of the bundle.
 I don`t recall reading alot of impressions of this game. Anyone out there like it? After reading reviews, and deciding to open it, I`m really happy with it. It`s normally 40 bucks ( I hate those few pricey ds titles), but wow is it fun. Just curious if anyone likes the game?, and/ or got the bundle?
2145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Animal crossing reviews and hopefully impressions! on: December 26, 2005, 05:46:44 AM
I`m far from over it. My wife got a DS, and tomarrow we are going to get AC for her. 2 DS`s with AC and MK=goodness. She got the MK bundle, pretty nice looking. Fun night ahead!
2146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Twin Snakes ['Cube] - no love!? on: December 26, 2005, 04:34:27 AM
I picked it up and wow. I`m loving it. I`m great (well good) at stealth games but not at this :o , at least at first. So far it`s really fun, and it`s a great trip down memory lane.  At my toy r us it was $20.00  :x , but still it was worth it. Especially since my cube hasn`t been really busy. I`m going to go play right now. Good recommendation so far as I`m assumimg it`s only going to get better.
2147  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Twin Snakes ['Cube] - no love!? on: December 24, 2005, 11:25:05 AM
Bastards!!! Now I look at my cube and think I could come up with 10 buck... Heh. I LOVED MGS on the Playstation, but I disliked and never finished MGS2 on the Xbox...No fun. So, maybe I should grab this. Anyone care to comment? If I don`t already ahve it by the time I post back...

I didn`t think at first I`d buy a REV. But, if it has a nice low price and some good launch titles I`ll grab it easily. I thought the DS might be gimmicky when I first heard of it, but wow was I SO wrong.
2149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DS or PSP? on: December 24, 2005, 10:52:34 AM
I read most of the posts if not all of `em. I didn`t see alot if any talk of the real difference of the systems. Innovation. The DS has innovated games. Can I play Warioware touched, Metoes, Nintendogs, and games like that on ANY other system? Not even possible. Or even close. At all.

Quote from: "Lee"
I recently sold off my PSP, neat system, but I just never played it, the games weren't grabbing me.

This thread helped me decide to give the DS a try. Just went out and got the Mario Cart red DS. Got Animal Crossing, the dog game (it just got too good of reviews, so I will give it a try) and Metroid Pinball. Looks good so far.

I should probably get screen protectors huh?

Thanks for all the info in this thread.

 I got a screen protector when i first got mine, and while I kept them on, I don`t think that a "normal adult using the the DS normally" would have issues. But, it`s obviously your call and you really can`t go wrong with one(In my experience). My wife is getting a DS for christmas and I don`t think she will get a screen protector.

 Also, since I sold my PSP, I really don`t miss it. Lumines was the only thing I kept playing, and really Metoes replaced that quite nicely.

Wow, I`m suprised by some of these comments. I`ve been watching the news alot recently (as always). Well, I`d rather have this going on than terrorists attacking us non-stop. I was suprised by all the CRAZY comments on this here and on the news... If the government didn`t do enough ( well, we still don`t really), people would freak out. Whatever someone does, the opposite action is always better... :roll:

2156  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DS or PSP? on: December 20, 2005, 10:07:01 AM
I had both. I still have the DS, and we are getting a second one with Animal crossing next week for the my wife. We are sure as hell going to be sleepy... :roll:  I got rid of the PSP because of the loadtimes, battery time, noise moving parts, buggy games, buggy systems, and I really just quit playing it.
 There are good games for it, but at 40 or 50. Most DS are 29.99-34.99. Much more reasonable. The catalog for the DS is much better too, I know it`s been out shorter, but still, it has more games that are better IMHO.
 Mario Kart, Animal crossing, Meteos (I like more than lumines), Metroid Pinball!!!, and Warioware are all the games I have I think...I might be missing something...Anywho, MK, AC, and meteos are crazy good. You could pick those up and the a DS for $215.00. Or get the bundle with MK (its red) then you could get all that for $200.00. The PSP ALONE!!! is $250.00.
 They both are good systems to some extent, or they can/will maybe will be someday. But the cost of DS with it`s great crop of games makes it`s hard to resist...

Here`s a question for you guys. My wife is getting a DS w/ animal crossing and I want to get wireless router. Can we BOTH go to the same town over wi-fi together? Just curious.
 On another note, this game is just FILLED with stuff to do. I simply can`t put it down after a few quick things. I`ll plan on playing for a hour or so and it turns into 2 or 3... Animal crossing is just THAT much better on a handheld platform.
2159  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / replayed F.E.A.R. on: December 18, 2005, 11:45:27 AM
Wow, while there are some flaws (like with anything...) this  game rocks. I`ve played it twice now, and I`ll play it again. Maybe next Halloween or something.
 Spoilers , I guess.

 The middle of it does drag, and they stretched it a bit. Quite a bit of filler in the middle. But, when it does what it does so right, this game is just extremely fun. The battles are crazy fun thanks to the ai. Just fun, that`s it!

 BTW, did anyone here run it with a system with 512mb , and a lesser ati card. Not sure which one. I`m gonna check. I have a friend that wants to play it, but hes not sure how it will run on his machine. Doom3 runs well on it he says, so I figure... Any ideas?
2160  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I`m prolly late to this but,... on: December 15, 2005, 09:12:18 AM

 It just got released over steam and people are seeming to LOVE it right now. Any comments?
