I'm parked on the couch at home watching football rather than being at the parents', courtesy of the chest cold I picked up.

It'd be like a soccer version of Pigskin 621 A.D.  I'd love it.

Perhaps it was just all the running he had to do in the beginning, as the outdoorsy parts are where I noticed it.

They have certainly changed what LEGO really means.  Not in a bad way but they are certainly not a "build whatever you imagine" company anymore.

As they can no longer maintain exclusivity on the base model bricks, they have to do something to drive demand. Like Monopoly, they're doing it with licensing agreements and limited editions. The old buckets are still around, but there's no margin and too much competition to survive as just the more modern version of Lincoln Logs.

Once you get a look at them, it's easy to see how trying to shoehorn a bunch of old white guys back into the old costumes would have completely ruined any immersion you were trying to build.

Heck, it looked like Tennant had to be sewn into that suit. I'd have to go back and look at his episodes, but I don't remember the buttons looking that stressed at the time.

Barring Eccleston, everyone still kicking got to be part of the celebration. 5-8 did a 30 minute video where they protest about not being in the episode, with a John Barrowman cameo. 8 got to do Night of the Doctor.

And by accounts I've read, 9 was decent about turning it down, but I'm still beginning to think he's a bit of a tool.

Sandwiched in the middle of 4, possibly 5 days of boardgaming, I played some Freespace this evening.

what, like Descent:  Freespace?  that's old school man.   thumbsup

Yup yup. I was feeling the need for some space combat, and I'd never played it. The options, though not accessible in mission, allow for a good deal of customization with the 360 controller. I can't get the triggers to register, but it's still pretty good.

Sierra (Front Page) Sports Football Pro '99. A game so broken that it was recalled.

The city just signed a deal with the conspiracy theorists to let them have a few tickets to the main shindig and have another ceremony of their own a couple hours later in a nearby parking lot.  I fully expect the main event to sustain some sort of whackjob disruption on live television.

Have to fix some stuff. Board will be offline in a few minutes, for 30 minutes max (It will show as it's not online at all, some people will panic and post on GT, we will be back soon).

Time Warner doesn't put it on my bills, but they had a place on the site to see it.
140  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: How Much Bandwidth Do You Consume? on: November 16, 2013, 04:43:52 AM
The demand for bandwidth is well and truly outpacing the ability for providers to install fiber in the ground to carry it all.  Caps are going to be with is for a while.

That being said, even during the summer when I was unemlpoyed and lived at my computer for the majority of the day, I didn't crack 200 GB.  My one-day peak was in July where I hit 64 GB, but still didn't crack 200 for the month.
141  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: The Weekend Playlist -- 11/15/13 on: November 16, 2013, 04:36:47 AM
Well, I've already thrown Tidalis and Anomaly Warzone Earth onto the abandoned games pile.

Tomorrow is reserved for an oil change, a resume polish for a recruiter that sounds like they're willing to throw stoopid money my way if the client approves of my resume, followed by a trip to the bar with a friend that works retail jewelry, so I likely won't see him again until January at the earliest.

I can't vouch for LOTRO as i have never played it(but that's good that it is like that)

It is free to play now.

I've been out of the anime loop for abut 8 years, but have been watching (and thoroughly enjoying) Samurai Champloo.  Are there any other anime series available on Netflix that are worth watching?

All the kiddies tell me that crunchyroll is the go-to place for anime these days.

rshetts, I'm well aware of the problems. I've been an active participant in the OO threads. As the big killers in gun violence are pimarily handguns by a 5 to 1 factor over rifles of all types for the previous decade.

And your first post wasn't a reasoned post that lent itself to intelligent investigation and discussion of the topic. And therefore, i treated it the way I saw it.
159  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Shooting at LAX on: November 04, 2013, 02:50:38 PM
He don't have a fully automatic weapon, did he? He had no history of mental illness.

His family reported his text messages to their local police, who called LAPD. They showed up at his place 45 minutes after he left for the airport.

So instead of throwing the whole firearm community under the bus, tell me what actions you think we should have had to prevent this?
160  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Amazon MP3 Deals (keep it updated!) on: November 02, 2013, 09:57:54 PM
New batch.  Johnny Cash III and IV from the American sessions are in there.  A reminder that Albums 1 and 2 are American Recordings, and Unchained.  Those, 5 and 6 are only $5.99 each.
