damn though.  i hope that feature comes back soon.

a reminder to us all... just how dependant we have become on the machines keeping our secrets...

perhaps we could post spoilers in 128 bit hashes instead?  slywink

Screw that, ig-pay atin-lay.

Pete, I had to Alt-Tab away from the forum twice because I would have otherwise been guffawing at my desk.  Not recommended in a quiet software dev environment.  I have tears in my eyes from stifling.

Watch out for Hark.  I wound up on the opposite team in the first round across from him.  I believe he dropped me a dozen times in the first round before someone had another engagement and they took pity on me and let me be the anchor around their necks for the rest of the night.   icon_wink

I think 13 years is outside the statue of limitations.  If you haven't seen it by now and you were wanting to, what the hell have you been waiting for?  I would say 5 years would be acceptable for most films, 10 would be pushing it.  

I never understand this argument- films don't age the way that games do and as tastes evolve as you get older it's very possible that you may only be just now watching some films from decades past for the first time.  So why spoil something if you don't need to? 

Personally, I don't spoiler films if I can avoid it.  If someone asks me, I will give them ample warning, asking, "Do you want to hear how it ends?" to give them the opportunity to back out.  Usually, they have no desire to see it and won't care if I do.  I've had films spoilered for me and still enjoyed the ride.  Same as if I read the book before I watched the film.  I know the ending, it's about the journey. 

But does anyone at this point, watched it or not, not know the ending to, say, Sixth Sense?  Or half of Shmupty's other movies?

There will be plenty of time in/around the holidays for Fallout 3 when everyone else is filling family obligations.  I will be off-line game-wise from Wednesday (travel) until probably the following Monday after work.

Finally going to get the chance to cap the famous PeteRock in the head?   eek  'Cause I can't can't seem to unlock the Sniper Philly fans in Madden.

I knew I picked up this game for a reason! 

Don't you have any other MP games?  I've tried to give plenty of forum members opportunities to cap me in the head in games like COD4, Gears of War, Gears of War 2, Halo 3, Rainbow Six, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, etc.  Where've you been? 

The problem is, my fabulous aura makes it difficult to get a bead on me.  Fabulous

Almost picked up CoD4 for the Friday night geezer fest (or some such), but never got around to it.  Played GoW on a borrow and didn't much care for it, so I'm giving GoW2 a pass.  Never picked up Halo 3, never moved to consoles on Ghost Recon, etc.  

So more my fault than yours, certainly. 

As for the "impressions" for the thread title, the cut scenes looked good before Fuzz invited me into MP where I proceeded to assist by giving the enemy a target that ran around like Humphrey the Bear caught out by the park ranger.  Maybe by the time the year is out, I can get to a 1:1 ratio.  I miss the old days where I could manage 5:1 in Medal of Honor on the PC....   crybaby

Through an interesting confluence of events, a relative of someone who works at my company recovered the challenge coin of Michael Thornton from the floorboards of his car when Mr. Thornton had been riding with him.  I was able to see and hold the coin and was wired the rest of the day just from that.

I am the son of an Air Force retired Master Seargent, the nephew of a retired Marine and the grandson of a Navy Machinist. 

While I never got the opportunity to serve (medical reasons), I have the utmost respect for those who do.  Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

It's fun to come in here and watch people post about how Clone Wars is pre-adolescent or childish, when the original Star Wars was the same way...it wasn't made for adults, but for kids.  Only nostalgia makes you not see that.  I still watch childish things as an adult, so it doesn't bother me too much, but the way you guys gloss over some of the facts about Indiana Jones and Star Wars on this forum is amazing.  And this is from a guy who has a Star Wars-themed tattoo.

From the halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From the dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And have never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines!!!

You have no ability to comment as you're not a Bills fan and don't know how these things work.

Absent a team from Buffalo, use logic: They'll have dropped 3 straight division games. Unless they win the division outright, they lose all 3 tiebreakers = No playoffs.

Read many of my posts?  Been a Buffalo fan for almost as long as you have, so if you're going to get pissy about it, do it at someone else.

Oh yeah!?

Seriously?  Sometimes, I think you are difficult for the sake of either a) being difficult because that's just your personality, b) you have a complex against being proven wrong, or c) you like playing a tool on the internet.

The search function is your friend.  Use it, and stop being condescending for no good reason.
