1161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: And the 79th Oscar Nominations are... on: January 23, 2007, 10:10:17 PM
I saw Dreamgirls. The fact that it was not nominated for best picture is one of the great Oscar snubs in recent history. It was an incredibly fantastic movie. Every actor/actress in the ensemble cast was uniformly excellent. Everything about the movie was excellent. It's about as Oscar-friendly a movie as they come, yet no best picture nomination. What a colossal disappointment.

And if Eddie Murphy and Jennifer Hudson win the supporting actor/actress awards, it'll only highlight the snub even more.

What was really hilarious was the stuff that Senator was spouting. I'd be embarassed to be from his district.

kobra, unfortunately we (Tivo) don't have that kind of clout with the movie studios. Yes, the hardware could in theory handle movie downloads, but Tivo as a company is too much of a small fish to have any sort of major influence with the studios. Going it alone would be financially impossible right now, especially with how paranoid the major studios are over issues such as DRM, copy protection, piracy, etc.

Those Doctor Who sets are indeed the new series on the Sci-Fi channel. Season 2 is pretty pricey at $70.

I'll be getting Doctor Who season 2, The Protector, Gridiron Gang and Spaaaaaaace Academy!

1167  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: WoW: Burning Crusade Impressions on: January 16, 2007, 04:00:18 PM
I was at Fry's yesterday afternoon, and there was actually a line outside of around 50 people waiting for the midnight opening selling Burning Crusade. I was totally floored by this. It's not like there won't be enough copies around. You'd think a new console was being released.

My god. I feel like I just lost 100 points off my IQ.

Obviously, Holly (the 3rd girl) is the "brains" of the group. She at least knew what a Palm Treo was, though it's highly questionable whether or not she knew how to actually use one.
1169  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: More Presidential Fun on: January 11, 2007, 07:44:34 AM
What exactly is the PLAN for these 20,000+ additional US troops? Sending more people there without any sort of clear strategy is completely useless. If Bush thinks sending more troops as an additional police presence is going to change the situation, he's even more out of touch with reality than we thought. I like how this move comes not too long after he removed the top two military commanders in Iraq, one of which was General John Abizaid who was NOT in favor of adding more troops. He wouldn't listen to his commanders in the theater of operations so he removed them instead. Smart.

Oh, I fully intend to download VC games like a madman.  icon_biggrin

I thought I read somewhere in Nintendo's documentation that there is a 2 GB limit to the capacity of SD cards that will work with the Wii.
1171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]Dashboard update? on: January 09, 2007, 06:02:42 PM
Oh great. The last update bricked my 360 and I had to get a replacement.
1172  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: CES News (Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, DVD, TV) on: January 08, 2007, 08:48:18 PM
I wonder, do the sales numbers of Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD in the quote above include the sales of PS3's? If so, I imagine that alone would explain the difference.
1173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii Question -SD CARD on: January 08, 2007, 12:44:14 AM
Hmmm, seems like if I stick to the known manufacturers like Kingston, Pny, SanDisk, etc. I should be okay.
1174  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii Question -SD CARD on: January 07, 2007, 10:12:50 PM
Will any brand of SD card work? Nintendo says not all may work but did not specify which ones don't. All they say specifically is that anything larger than 2 GB will probably not work. Can anyone recommend a 1 GB or 2 GB card that does work?

The moral of this story? There's no such creature as a sure thing. The majority of eBay prospectors walked away from this experience with that lesson burned into the back of their brains. My suggestion for the future? If you want to gamble, go to Vegas. If you want to invest, try mutual funds. Leave the video game system buying to the gamers. We'll all be happier for it.

He's quite the rocket scientist to have figured that out all on his own.
1178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / First 10 minutes of Lost Planet on: December 24, 2006, 04:56:30 AM
Xboxyde has streaming vids of the first 10 minutes of Lost Planet. Look about halfway down the page.

All I can say is WOW. It looks pretty awesome. Decent voice acting and really sweet graphics. I'm definitely getting this game.
1179  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gah! Job Related. Which new job would you take? on: December 22, 2006, 09:35:16 PM
Apparently your idea of a commute is a horseback ride into the valley of the Planet of the Apes.
1180  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gah! Job Related. Which new job would you take? on: December 22, 2006, 06:34:37 PM
I refuse to sit for hours in my car, and can't really understand how people can do it.

Because for some people, it's a legitimate tradeoff for living in an area that is affordable, has good neighborhoods or allows a decent lifestyle. For example, I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. The traffic here is awful during commute time but the quality of life in the area is really nice and a lot of people tolerate the traffic.

If the commute for job 1 consisted of sitting in traffic then I'd tend to lean more towards job 2, but since he said the commute for job 1 is through country roads with very little or no traffic, then it doesn't sound like a dealbreaker.
1181  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gah! Job Related. Which new job would you take? on: December 22, 2006, 07:33:33 AM
Personally, I'd take job #1. Having the extended off-time is much better in the long run if you want to have any semblance of a personal life. Also, in job 1 you oversee fewer employees. On job #2, having to work every other Saturday sucks. You'll always feel shortchanged on the weekends.
1182  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Non-Microsoft USB wireless adapters for Xbox 360 on: December 21, 2006, 07:07:14 PM
Okay, I call upon the the GT collective to help answers a question.

I have a friend who just got an Xbox 360. He wants to get Xbox Live working on it and needs a wireless USB adapter. Now he could just get the Microsoft one which is a bit overpriced, or I could give him a spare Linksys USB wireless adapter I have lying around. More specificially, it's the Linksys WUSB54GS. Does anyone know if this works with the 360? More generally, do 3rd party USB wireless adapters work with the 360?

I tried asking Linksys if their stupid product worked and the support drone told me that wireless was built into the 360. Umm, yeah. Thanks for nothing. :icon_confused:
1183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Those still looking for a Wii or PS3 on: December 18, 2006, 02:17:32 AM
I went to EB Games today to pick up some other stuff and asked the sales drone when he thought I could just walk into a store and pick up a Wii. He said probably not until the end of January.

 Guess I'll be waiting until the end of January.

Are you holding down the right shoulder button before pulling the special moves?

Great game. I like the dual character angle. I think Charlotte is a more effective character than what's his name.
1186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Next batch of Wiis? on: December 04, 2006, 02:30:51 AM
I showed up at Circuit City this morning at 7 am. They had 22, I was like 30th in line. Went across the street to Toys R Us where they were selling 40. I was like 50th in line.

I must be the only one here that can't get one of these damn things.
1187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 Update bricked my box?? on: December 03, 2006, 03:54:13 AM
The last dashboard update before this latest one bricked my 360. What you are experiencing is exactly what happened to mine. Luckily for me I had bought an extended warranty when I got it at Best Buy a year ago and ended up getting a replacement unit. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do. Once it is bricked, it can only be repaired/replaced by MS. I recall that the previous update did brick a fair number of units. When I took the latest update today, I was crossing my fingers it would work, which it did. It's ridiculous that we have to play Russian Roulette every time one of these stupid updates comes out.

Weren't both of her kids delivered that way?

I believe so, which I guess confirms that those photos are the real thing.

1192  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Magazine Subscriptions on: November 21, 2006, 10:48:10 PM
I get:

Computer Games Magazine - the best of the big three computer gaming mags IMO.
PC Lamer, er I mean Gamer - Every year I tell myself I am not going to renew and every year I end up renewing. Not this year.
Computer Gaming World/GFW - I am letting the sub run out and not renewing. They are no longer relevant.
Official Xbox Magazine - Another I will let run out without renewing. I'm tired of the poorly written reviews and their lame editorial comments.
EGM - A free sub I got this year. I barely even read it before tossing it in the garbage.
Maxim - Somehow I ended up with a free 5 year subscription. It's free and has many purty pictures.

So by this time next year, I should be down to two magazines.

1194  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: How much credit card debt does your household have? on: November 20, 2006, 08:35:24 PM
My wife and I have two credit cards. One has a running total of $1000-2000 a month. It's used for large purchases, emergencies and as a designated card for business expenses that will be reimbursed. The other card is our everyday card which we always pay off at the end of the month.

One thing I can never understand is people who have literally 15-20 or more credit cards. Hell, who ever needs more than one or two? To carry more than that is inviting trouble. Luckily for me, I've never been tempted to get drawn into the credit black hole.

Are you talking about the 360 charger cable that you hook up from the controller to the USB port of the console to charge the battery in the controller?

My wife caught She-Ra on TV and it became VERY clear to me that He-Man is clearly gay. 

Pink shirt, skin-tight undershirt, purple fuzzy undies on the outside, white pants with pink fuzzy boots.  Couple that with bleach blonde hair with dark black eyebrows and it becomes clear that He-Man bats for She-Ra's team.   

LOL, it only took you like 20 years to figure this out? Welcome to 2006 my friend!
