Righty-o.  I love that movie.  It's darker than dark, the Vegas sequence can be kinda brutal, but after that, it's comedy gold, Jerry!

Sorry for the delay, I forgot that I had answered that one and forgot to check back.  Moliere was kind enough to remind me.

The other thought I had was that perhaps I could find a Holiday bundle at a different store with a Jasper chip in it, then return the Falcon Holiday Bundle to that store. But I've also heard that most places scan the serial number of the system? Do all places do that? And then again, I'm not sure how comfortable I feel with this ethically. Technically, an unopened system is an unopened system, but still.

There's also the SKU issue.  Unless the barcodes match identically, you will be SOL anyway.

Just got done watching FSM.  2/5 stars.  Decidedly Meh.  I got as many laughs out of the 5-minute gag reel as I did the film.  It was good to see Mila Kunis in a non-Jackie role.

And I will be so happy when Jonah Hill's 15 minutes of fame are up.  I can not stand him.  Bill Hader is not far above him on my list either. 

Jason Segel lays it on a bit thinck, but I guess it doesn't grate on me in HIMYM, since he's not the sole focus for the entire episode.  Everything in moderation, I suppose.

Gonna miss him. Not sure how it will work out without him on there. He is supposed to appear off and on but it wont be the same Im afraid. Im worried that it will be the end of the show.

Too bad Peterson won't.  I think it can have promise, but I haven't watched the latest yet.  The preview looked good and it looks like they're not trying to replace Gil, which they couldn't do anyway.  If they can get the rest of the lab cast to step up and get some more decent CSIs to fill the void since they lost Sara, Warrick, and Gil, they'll be okay.  I'm not going to discount it without a shot.

I certainly gave it a shot with ER, but once they got rid of Greene's wife and killed off Gallant in a two minute sequence, I just couldn't take any more of Neela's whining, didn't care for Morris, and John Stamos just got on my nerves.

Time will tell.  If there were a way to turn it off while using the gun, I'd love it.  But again, I'd have to buy a Wii and that's not likely, so I guess my minor quibbles are in vain.

Oh, and Wiki says:

Also, a new feature called Battle Screen will add challenge to the game. It will expand the camera beyond the screen, forcing players to move their point of view. The game will also once again feature two player co-operative play.

Now if they'll just get around to implementing head-tracking, I'd be all over it.

That almost makes me want to buy a Wii (and make it the console trifecta).  I don't like the circle on the screen, though.  If you're going to make it point and shoot, you shouldn't need it.

My guess is that the snake was defanged, judging by the fact it didn't draw blood.

It would only have fangs if it were poisonous.  Which would be really stupid in the first place.  It looks like a constrictor type, which means it runs the same as any other run of the mill animal bite, but IANAH (I am not a Herpetologist).

I understand and certainly didn't take any offense, nor thought that was your intent.

There can be a certain comedy in a sad sack type character.  Heck, look at Eeyore.  He's completely morose, yet an entertaining character within the fabric of the Hundred Acre Wood.  He does have a certain perseverity in rebuilding his house, but he certainly never "gets over it."  If the film comes off to me as you read it, I certainly may not care for it.

I haven't seen it yet.  This weekend will tell me if I like it or not.  Given that's it's by Apatow, I don't have high hopes.

And I have a family and personal history of depression, so there are times that "pulling myself together" just doesn't quite work.  Self-pity is something that I am familiar with.  I have gotten a lot better over the last several years, but there's probably more in that film for me to relate to than you, Pete.

I never tried it because it's an RPG and the only one I have ever finished is Final Fantasy Adventure on the GameBoy.  Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go convince myself to play the original Baldur's Gate...
Hey!  Someone else remembers that game!  I love FFA!

I didn't realize that it was the start of a non-FF series:

Final Fantasy Adventure: Game Boy
Secret of Mana : Super Nintendo
Seiken Densetsu 3 : Super Famicom
Legend of Mana : PlayStation
Sword of Mana : Game Boy Advance
Children of Mana : Nintendo DS
Friends of Mana : Mobile phone
Dawn of Mana : PlayStation 2
Heroes of Mana : Nintendo DS

But then, I only had the original Gameboy and the PS2 (for a short while).

Not all of us are PeteRockian smooth wif the ladies.  As one who needs to grow a man sack on occassion, I may enjoy it more than you did, Pete. 

Superbad was as the title suggested.  If it had been even one iota worse, I would have ejected it before it was over.  Kinda like I did with Napoleon Dynamite.  And looking at Apatow's list of films, it doesn't bode well.  There's little on that list that have interested me enough to even attempt watching, much less that I enjoyed.

Then there's Big O.  Imagine if Batman was a negotiator instead of a vigilante, had a giant robot instead of the Batmobile, Alfred had only one eye, and Robin was played by a teenage girl android with little emotional response.  A coastal area has suffered massive damage, the populace has no memories before the event, and people's statuses are determined by what skills they can remember and where they were when they "woke up."

...Microsoft has axed hundreds of positions from its game division.  A Microsoft representative confirmed on Friday that ACES will be shut down but added that the company remains committed to the Flight Simulator franchise, though she would not provide details.  But while Microsoft's game division was hit hard, VentureBeat reported that its Lionhead and Rare studios--the former just published Fable II--as well as its Forza Motorsports studio were untouched.  Microsoft did not immediately confirm whether those studios are being affected by the layoffs.

Cowboys fans in Texas are intolerable.  Every win means they're the bestest team EVAR! and ever loss is the end of the franchise.  Fire the head coach and trade all the players to the Arena League.

When Philly put the screws to them, it wasn't 30 minutes after the game that I heard Romo compared to a steaming pile of Great Dane excrement by the post game crew!

I'm not saying the actions of our fans are okay.  I'm not saying they're justified.  I'm more embarassed of our fan behavior than anyone else.  But to not have a single Super Bowl victory in over 75 seasons of football, and yet to have come so close five times only to fall short each and every time, that frustration is going to manifest in some way. 

Uhm ... This year is Super Bowl XLIII (43).  And the Eagles took the NFL Championship in 1948 (from the Chicago Cardinals), 1949, and 1960.

But regardless, as a Bills Fan, I can certainly understand your frustration.  The early 90s were merciless, made worse by the fact that I lived in Texas during that entire run.  Every Monday during the season, I was wearing Bills gear in Texas in High School.  Yeah, those were pleasant days...

It's hard to explain, but lemme try again:

I still don't get it...   retard  How would I not be able to play with a friend on the same team on a different system (different console, no?) if they have 3 v 3 coop play where you can meet up with friends.?

Burn notice?  Yes it's in it's second season though it's one of those deals where the season was split into two so the second half of the second season just started airing. 

Edit:  Holy shit.  Just looked up Burn Notice on BestBuy.com and it's only $20 for the first season.  I may pick it up on my way home as a nice impulse buy.  I haven't made one of those in quite a while.

Damn forum effect.  Now this makes me want to pick it up on the way home.  I caught about 1/3 of it on Hulu when the 2nd season was running.  It's hard to argue with that price.

While disclosing sales for third quarter of fiscal 2008-2009, Ubisoft revealed “Assassin’s Creed 2,” a new “Ghost Recon” and the long-delayed “Splinter Cell Conviction” are coming before March 2010.

Ubisoft also revealed a new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” title in the works. It’s in development at Game Arts, the same studio that handled some development on Nintendo’s “Super Smash Bros. Brawl.” Stay tuned, as we’ve asked Ubisoft for more details on that project.

Additional Wii support is coming; during a conference call this morning discussing the financial results, a Ubisoft executive seemingly accidentally mentioned a new “Red Steel” project before March 2010. The conference call also revealed Ubisoft will be actively supporting MotionPlus in upcoming games.
