Yeah, Games Workshop completely ripped off StarCraft!  WTF is up with that?

Research shows that the fatal bugs appeared to be limited to the PS2 version of the first game.

Besides, I think most of Sci Fi's target demo for this show is more than aware of DVRs.

Glad you came through the wreck all right.  The new car looks great.

Wireless Local Number Portability information.  It's an old link from the initial launch of the program, but aside from the info about geographic restrictions, it all matches what I recall from my three years in the industry.

My best is Lego Indy, with something like 960 points and missing 2 achievements.  The last two would require stupid amounts of grinding, and after getting 100% on that game, I was all done with it.

I did the grinding.  100%, every achievement. 
7410  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Your worst game for Achievements on the 360? on: June 05, 2009, 06:50:57 PM
That would be funny as hell if the next embarrassing game like that came with an achievement just for loading it.  biggrin

With these mail/IM battery issues, there's only so much you can do.  Again, you are maintaining an active data connection.  With the iPhone, it's the same.  You can turn e-mail pushes to up to one hour or make it by request only.

I'll try and badger my co-worker to put some words to screen either directly or indirectly to get on here.  He plans on being at a local Best Buy before it opens to make sure and get one. 
7415  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Name that movie on: June 04, 2009, 09:40:47 PM
I got nothing at the moment.  Please feel free to go again.

And I will admit to guessing that one off a keyword search on IMDB for "zeppelin."

Any device that you use on a constant basis that maintains a backlight and/or an active data connection is going to have battery life issues.  Most "normal" phones rank at about 4-6 hours of talk time before needing a charge.  I can get more Pandora time out of my iPhone than that. 

I love it for web browsing.  It's not as quick as a wired connection, but that's to be expected for another few years

When I worked in wireless, we recommended a power cycle a couple times a week for any mobile device, not just smart phones.  People code badly.  The more people code, the more of them code badly.

They need to bring something, because all of the first gen iPhone contracts start expiring on June 29th.

Lowest: Hexic - 10 of 200 - demo play
Lowest owned: Rockstar Table Tennis - 35 of 1000

I have twice that on Gears of War, and I only had that on borrow for about a week.

Head to BEst Buy instead and you won't have to mail in the rebate, they'll just give it to you.

7424  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2009 is upon us on: June 04, 2009, 12:31:59 AM
Back in the old days, there would be a Big Bad that people wanted to kill that lived in an area.  If your group got to kill it first and there was a one-week respawn timer (not unheard of for the top end bosses), everybody on your server would have to wait a week for him to come back to kill him again.

An instance has a door with the Big Bad behind it.  Every group goes through this one door, but each one gets the same dungeon, but only that group is in it.  Every group that wants to can go try to kill the Big Bad without trying to figure out if someone else just did it, because a new Big Bad and dungeon are created just for you every time you pass through that door.

The loot in the instances is usually a unique item that can only be obtained in that area.  A lot of the WoW stuff does advance the lore and story lines as well, learning about the world, the wars, the legends and so forth.
7425  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: E3 2009 is upon us on: June 03, 2009, 11:04:31 PM
As long as you're not interested in ever doing an instance, most do.  The real trick is what do you want to do in those 40 minutes? 

In WoW, you can log in, take a bird to where you want to be, fight, and hearthstone out as long as you're not in combat.  Lather, rinse, repeat.  Base yourself near the baddies you want to fight and it's out the front door, past the cave on the left, mind the gap, don't touch the third troll.

Also, from my understanding is that the redesign is only targeting the main page and does not impact the forums at all.

I may be wrong.

This thread reinforces to me that I should be "pre-flighting" my car before I get in it.

I would have tried to figure out what you were telling me.  I have given directions between cars and been informed that my headlight was out (it was really just pointed in the wrong direction).
7431  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: my new hardware..... on: June 03, 2009, 04:41:20 PM
You got screwed.  Did that PS3 hard drive upgrade go south on you?

Seriously, WTF happened?
7432  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Beatles: Rock Band on: June 03, 2009, 03:45:07 PM
Count me out, then.  I'm not a huge Beatles fan and I certainly don't want to be swapping discs when I don't feel like All Beatles, All the Time.  Now as long as they make LEGO and/or RB2 exportable, I will pick up that one.

Just out of curiosity, of those who are saying he's stupid and unfunny, who found Clerks II funny?

I honestly didn't care much for it.  If it had been a new IP, I probably would have ejected it.  It got a pass because it was Kevin Smith and Clerks.

It gets to my actual LinkedIn profile.

It goes to a disambiguation page for me, as there are five of us.  I am the first on the list.  Although I wouldn't mind being Director of Slot Operations at Grand Victoria Casino in Chicago, Global Industry Leader at Chemtura in Philly, or Manager at Business risks in Melbourne.

Funny, you never came across as a Wayne.  ninja

Watching the EA show now on the TiVo. What and odd start they chose with all the Littlest Pet Shop and Charm Girls Club stuff. The audience seemed to be mocking them.
