7721  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How many games do you buy (How often) on: March 10, 2009, 04:11:27 PM
My last full price purchases were CoD:[email protected] on Veteran's Day and EndWar before Christmas.  Then I picked up three PeteRock Special Editions on the pool cue fire sale, two of which I still haven't loaded.  I picked up Worms from XBLAh a couple weeks ago.  I'll be picking up MLB 09 The Show next week (and probably a headset with it).  It helps that I have a Gamefly membership.

I actually picked it up about a week ago.  I was impressed that roping made it into the game, but I haven't been able to go over the top like in Armaggeddon.  And I miss my Baseball Bat and the flames from the barrels and my poor, lost flamethrower.

My current plan is to pick this up on the 18th for an evening of baseball after my dentist hollows out and fills two of my wisdom teeth.  I suppose if I'm going to MP, I need to see about getting miked up on the PS3 as well.  Any recommendations?

There's not a big enough "Off" switch in my brain to suspend disbelief to enjoy this game.  If you're going to model a HUD and have it function, you'd damned well make it work properly.

Yeah, I guess I will probably skip.  I liked it back in the day when movies hinted at gruesome things, but left it to your imagination.  Now Hollywood feels they have to show everything and it is a big reason I don't watch too many movies anymore.

I get what you're saying in general, but in the case of Watchmen they didn't add any gore for gore's sake; it was all stuff that was in the graphic novel. 

No, I know that.  I don't want to see it represented in film in high detail.  In the comic there's maybe a panel or two and it looks like a cartoon.  Hollywood has gotten good with gore and I just don't like looking at it, despite the fact I know it isn't real.  Doesn't matter whether they added it or not...I still don't like it.  You can still get the point across without showing it at all.  For instance, let's say you have a gun pointed at a guy's head.  In the older days, they would cut to something else (black or do a transition) and you would hear a gunshot.  You knew what happened.  Now they feel they have to show it and I don't like looking at it.

but...but, you'r[e] a GRUE!

Not a problem.  I wasn't aware of where the current povery level was and wanted to actually pin down the numbers.  I wouldn't have an issue with those numbers, especially as my earning potential is likely to never hit the single mark. 
7738  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Obama's proposed 2010 budget juices carriers for more cash on: March 07, 2009, 08:00:31 PM
Based on HHS levels for the lower 48 in 2007-2008, that puts your threshold at $260,000 for a single person and $530,000 for a family of four.

I think that a good starting point would be 50%.  The idea that half or more of the money you earn is given directly to the government would be a point that most people could agree on.  And of course, that doesn't take sales tax, property tax, etc into account. 
7742  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Obama's proposed 2010 budget juices carriers for more cash on: March 07, 2009, 06:20:23 PM
I need to some research and see where the legal precedent was set that the electromagnetic spectrum belongs to the government to license and that we have the right to lease it out.  I can certainly see the regulation of technology as the right of the government, but ownership seems to be taking it a bit far in my opinion. 

The government operations in this regard amount to a state monopoly.  It's not like the carriers can do anything but pay the increased rates or go out of business.  It's not like there's some other organization selling spectrum that they can use.

Honestly, even loving the AFC like I do, the Chiefs are never on my radar.  I guess most of my attention ends up being devoted to the AFC and NFC East divisions, one because of my team of choice and the other due to my location.  If TO went to the Chiefs, maybe he'd be less of a media circus, but I doubt it.
7744  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [NASA] Kepler Space Telescope to launch tonight on: March 07, 2009, 03:24:10 AM
The Kepler Mission is due to launch this evening at 10:49 EST.

The Kepler craft will survey the Milky Way to look for rocky, water-bearing planets in our galaxy, dialing down the searches from the super-Jupiters that we have been racking up. 

Quote
NASA delayed Kepler's launch by one day last week to allow extra rocket checks on the spacecraft's Delta 2 booster to ensure it was fit to fly. The precaution, stemmed from the Feb. 24 failure of a different rocket carrying a NASA Earth-watching satellite, found Kepler's booster in fine shape for tonight's planned liftoff, mission managers said.

Kepler will not be orbiting the earth, but apparently placed into a solar orbit that trails the earth so that it can continually observe stars without our pesky planet getting in the way.  (Man, I'd love to see some of the math about the forces involved in making that work...)

Quote
After launch, Kepler is designed to turn its unblinking camera eye at a patch of sky between 600 and 3,000 light-years from Earth in the direction of the constellations Cygnus and Lyra. The target zone covers an area similar to what a human hand could cover when held at arm's length.

Kepler will stare at the region for at least 3 1/2 years, measuring the light from 100,000 stars every half hour with a 95 million-pixel camera to watch for the slight dip in a star's brightness that signals a planet moving across it as seen from Earth. It's the equivalent of trying to spot a flea crawl across a car headlight from miles away, NASA has said.

Who wants to watch it with me?  Less than 30 minutes to go.

Has anyone hit a homer in Fenway that has hit the Monster behind the stands in CF and then dropped into the crowd?  There was a bug that I reported to 3DO back in the High Heat days where that would result in the game calling it a ground rule double.  I sent the question to eric Nadel of the Rangers Radio broadcast after they played there, and he confirmed that it should be a HR if it's in fair territory, a ground-rule double if it hits the wall in fair territory, then drops into the stands in foul territory. 
7753  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Obama's proposed 2010 budget juices carriers for more cash on: March 06, 2009, 04:23:46 PM
The argument from the carriers is that they (and by definition, their consumers) are already doing more than their fair share.  If you increase the burden on a successful business, they either have to pass that burden on to the consumers (note the fees referenced above) to maintain their expected models or start taking chunks out of their operating revenue, which puts an impact on their ability to maintain and expand the business to remain successful. 

If the carrier's spectrum fees increase 300%, you can expect to see it passed along in the Regulatory Cost Recovery Charge.  There are more than 150 million cell customers, so you can expect to see less than a $1/user (I assume yearly).  Without the reporting, you would likely never notice it on your bill.

Tim Roth is a villain in my mind. A multi-leveled villain with admirable qualities, but a villain none the less. His acting always brings a seriousness, a gravitas if you will, to any role he plays, and in something like that I can't see myself enjoying it.

For me, watching Roth on a weekly basis in episodic content on a prime-time investigation show is like having Christopher Walken replace Wayne Brady on "Don't Forget the Lyrics". Tongue
