Pushing him in the face does not jive really well with the zombie excuse.  That's just asking to be bitten.

And yeah, Woody's nuttier than Mr. Peanut.

7324  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / PETA takes on the Lich King on: April 11, 2009, 05:47:27 PM
PETA has decided that playing whack-a-seal in Northrend is a sign of loyalty to the Lich King and is holding a save-the-virtual-baby-seals event in World of Warcraft that began at 1 P.M. EST today.

Quote from: PETA
Activists from across the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor are banding together to put a stop to the atrocious seal slaughter. Anyone who slaughters baby seals for their fur must surely be in service to the evil Lich King.  You must be in the WhisperWind realm in order to fight... go to Northrend, where you will find a zone called Howling Fjord, where the baby seals live on glaciers and boats float in the fjords. This will be the battleground to stop the slaughter.

EA has decided that it wants to get the press reviewing the game to get arrested.  They sent out a press kit complete with a set of brass knuckles, which are illegal ... pretty much everywhere.

Maynard's too busy making wine these days anyway.  He was actually in the DFW area a couple of weeks ago on a wine appearance and leveraging the local rock station to get people to come out.  Almost like he knew that people would come see his new stuff based on his old stuff....

From my past (limited) experience with fishing, you need something to carry them.  Most true fisherman will use a fish stringer.

Quote
(fishing) A cord or chain, sometimes with additional loops, that is threaded through the mouth and gills of caught fish.

You don't know about real cops!  Oh, wait, maybe you do.   icon_biggrin

Now that I think about it, I'm getting a Shield-lite kinda vibe from it. 

As for Cudlitz, I got the feeling that he really wanted to put the kid through trial by fire and the talk after the shooting was kinda meant as a pep talk to get him through it.  Not exactly motivational speaker level of talk, but trying to get through to him so he didn't shut down.

I often wonder how Gamestop stays in business.  The two closest to me are next door to Walmarts.  The Walmart often has a better selection of both console and PC games at better prices.  It seems to me that in an effort to be everything to everyone, Gamestop lost all marketing differential beyond being a used console game shop. 

The Walmarts in the Dallas area keep all of their console games under lock and key.  PC games are fair game for any shoplifters, but if I wanted to get a console game, I have to find the KeyMaster.  It makes me feel like being roasted in the depths of the Slor is preferable.

For even more fun, go watch It Takes a Thief and you will see just how quickly they can trash your house, grab all your good stuff including anything that you've hidden, and be out the door.  15 minutes is about right in most cases.

When no one is talking any more about the games you wanted six months ago, it's easy to forego the purchase.  And if there's nothing I'm just dying to get, I'll forego it.  I think we all have backlogs of stuff we want to finish.

I find it disturbing that Billy Bob has more preconditions on speaking with someone in an interview than the President does in speaking to the leader of a country actively seeking nuclear weapons.

Quote from: Eel Snave on April 09, 2009, 01:11:10 PM

Yeah, really I'm only wanting a PS3 for MLB the Show, but I'm starting to get confused.  For instance, there are some 80 GB models with BC, but it's only software emulation so some games don't work well.  There are 6 separate SKUs for a system that just came out two years ago.  How does that make sense?

Because Sony believes that instead of dropping the price, the consumer wants 'extra value' (bigger HD, more bundled games, etc) with their PS3.

And yes, the 80GB models with 'limited' (about 75-90%) BC are now EXTREMELY rare - there hasn't been a model with any BC at all in ages.

I bought one last summer with my stimulus check.  It was the MGS4 pack that released in June.

I didn't get home in time, but I have it set to record next week for a trial.

Life is awesome imo.  The second season finale was last night.  I picked up the first season (11 episdoes) on DVD from an Amazon sale.  I'm actually surprised that Season 2 was 21 episodes.  It seems like it went by a lot quicker than that.
7344  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: There is no life on Mars on: April 09, 2009, 02:11:51 PM
I have not watched the show from either source, but from what I hear, the endings to the shows are substantially different depending on which side of the pond on which it was filmed.
7345  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Thinking about getting a PS3... on: April 09, 2009, 01:19:40 AM
Alefroth, there were some 80 GBs that were BC, but not all of them, and I don't believe the new ones are.  I specifically waited for them to come back out last summer to ensure that I could still get my PS2 goodness on.
7346  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Unusuals on: April 09, 2009, 12:37:49 AM
I have not heard of this show.  If I get out of work to watch it, I may give it a look.  It's got to be better than the first episode of Surviving suburbia, Bob Saget's new show.

I can't really see what they could effectively foreshadow.  The first picture was almost a throwaway story with no lasting impacts that I recall.  2-4 were a grand story arc, sort of, and after that, it kind of goes off the rails again into set piece stories. 

There are more than 4?   icon_eek

I had no idea.  I did know there were 15 or 20 different CSI/Law-and-Order type offshoots on television, but I didn't know there were so many films. 

And a cartoon.

There are six centered around the full original cast, and a seventh that bridges the original series with Next Generation

  • The Motion Picture
  • The Wrath of Khan
  • The Search for Spock
  • The Voyage Home
  • The Final Frontier
  • The Undiscovered Country

The crossover movie was Generations

Final Frontier was bad.  Undiscovered Country was pretty good.  And I liked Generations.  

After that, it's all Next Gen until this coming reboot.

  • First Contact
  • Insurrection
  • Nemesis

Do not go to that link if you have One-click ordering turned on.

More of a warning than an actual immediate threat.  The device is listed at a 5-figure price.  Accidentally clicking on a purchase link if you had one-click ordering on would be bad.

Be careful with some of the brands.  If I recall, some of them contain Tylenol in addition to the caffeine, which has lead to toxicity when people pop NSAIDs with caffeine pills. Always read your labels.
