1241  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Teen runs off to Iraq...alone! on: December 30, 2005, 07:36:06 AM
http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20051230/ap_on_re_mi_ea/journey_to_iraq

What an amazing story. This high school kid from Florida went to Iraq by himself for a school journalism assignment.

On the one hand, I really admire his idealism and attitude towards societal global issues. Pretty incredible for a person his age. On the other hand, running off to Iraq alone is beyond STUPID. I'm amazed that it was so easy for him to get a travel visa without his parent's approval. He's probably going to be grounded for life.

I hope his teacher gave him an A+ on his essay.

1243  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / UMD Movies - Here to stay or just a faze? on: December 29, 2005, 08:30:52 PM

Deep Discount DVDs is running a 'buy 2 get 1 free' sale on UMD movies.

For anyone that still cares.   smile
1244  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / UMD Movies - Here to stay or just a faze? on: December 29, 2005, 06:23:55 PM
I bought a bunch of movies on UMD that I didn't mind having as a good showcase of the "coolness" factor of the PSP. Honestly though, I've barely even watched them. I think definitely UMD movies are more of an interesting novelty than anything practical or useful.

One of my good friend's wife works at Logitech. Looks like it's time to ask about her employee discount!

So, are we all invited to the wedding? That would be a sight. Your side of the aisle full of obnoxious, slobbering, heckling GamingTrend dorks! biggrin

Cool. Check your PayPal account. :lol:

Awesome! Congratulations in advance. She better say YES!

Afterwards you can hurry home for some hot monkey sex!!  :lol:

Wow. Just...wow. I am in awe of his Jedi powers of Geometry Wars.  :shock:

1254  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / King Kong on the 360 - defeated by darkness on: December 14, 2005, 07:04:09 PM
Well, I had the game and traded it in because it was too dark to play. My brightness and contrast were turned all the way up as far as they could go and the game was STILL too dark and unplayable in most of the cave sequences.

It was truly annoying and really unfortunate because I really wanted to like the game. The first level with the T-Rex and the first level where you play as Kong were excellent.

What a screw up though. Ubisoft should be ashamed for not catching something so obvious.
1255  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: December 12, 2005, 10:47:17 PM
If/when there is a sequel, I really hope there will be at least one Van Halen song. How can a game called Guitar Hero NOT have a VH song?? Although, the thought of having to play Van Halen at Hard and Extreme levels might be even more sadistically harder than Bark at the Moon!

I too wish there was a practice mode. One thing might help. Someone on the Guitar Hero official messageboard suggested turning down the crowd and band volume. That way you only hear what your guitar is playing, mistakes and all.
1256  Gaming / Analog Gaming / WOW the Boardgame on: December 09, 2005, 06:31:00 PM
I nearly forgot that I had preordered the WoW boardgame back in October. Much to my surprise, there was a big box in front of my door when I got home last night.

Unfortunately, the wife and I didn't get a chance to play a game, but I did open it up and check out all the components. The game is so frickin' beautiful. There's a ton of colored plastic figures. The Character cards are printed on thick, glossy cardstock. The board itself is very large, and the game comes with a ton of dice. Production value is simply outstanding. I thought War of the Ring was a beautiful looking game, but WoW is even better.

I just caught Joe's first game as a Shark on TV tonight. He had two assists and pretty much played like I was hoping he would. He's got great hands and can pass like no one else.  Sharks destroyed the Sabres 5-0.

I'm praying Doug Wilson is still going to make another trade for a defenseman or two because trading Stuart leaves us with MacLaren, Hannan, and a collection of scrubs on defense.
1260  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Take a Videogame Quiz! on: November 30, 2005, 12:28:00 AM
10 out of 10. The scary thing is that I got the one about Pac Man Fever correct mostly because I actually owned that horrible album.
1261  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Are you happy with your 360? on: November 30, 2005, 12:21:16 AM
I love the 360...and I even have one! biggrin

Regardless of how weak or strong the games are, each one has really impressed me in terms of graphics. The one exception being that piece of crap, King Kong, which will be traded in at EBGames shortly. God I frickin' hate that game.

1263  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's your GOAT of the year so far - 2005 console edition on: November 23, 2005, 08:50:02 PM
I say The Matrix: Path of Neo. The graphics look terrible. It's not 16x9 widescreen on Xbox, and it has that royally idiotic and bizarre ending that pretty much is a slap in the face of all Matrix fans.
1264  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 live service? on: November 22, 2005, 09:36:44 PM
When you transfer your existing Xbox Live account over to the 360, is it considered a gold account, or a silver account? When I bought my 360, the guy at Best Buy told me that I had to buy the XBL Gold pack even though I already have an account for the first Xbox. Seemed kind of suspicious, so I passed on getting it.

No problem Purge. It was cool that you even made the offer. Things still worked out for me. I got one this morning at Best Buy. WOO HOO!!
1266  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lines Already Forming for XB360 on: November 22, 2005, 06:17:27 PM
Well after deciding last night I would not line up anywhere, I took a chance and went to another local Best Buy at 5:30am. I was 37 out of 40 and got a premium package.

No way will I do this for the PS3 launch. This time was enough for me.
1267  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / -cancelled- xbox360 for sale. on: November 22, 2005, 06:09:43 AM
Oh well. At least you tried. I give you credit for that at least.

Wow, I suddenly don't feel so bad about not camping out.

That AAR is sad. Simply sad.
1269  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lines Already Forming for XB360 on: November 22, 2005, 04:22:29 AM
I was all set to go to my local Best Buy at 5am, but at 6:45pm, as I drove by, there was already a line of 15 or so people.  I went home and started to pack stuff for an immediate overnight stay, but I realized how insane an idea it was. Maybe if I was 23 years old and had the enthusiasm I'd do it, but at 37 years old and having a 20 month old daughter, I just don't see the point. I'll get a 360 eventually, and it's not like I don't have a ton of other games to play.

I feel like such an old loser... :roll:

Anyone know what the differences are between the Xbox and Xbox360 versions? I get this sneaking suspicion that they are exactly the same except the 360 version looks slightly prettier.

1276  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 - Massive Shortages at Launch on: November 11, 2005, 07:13:41 PM
According to the content details on EBGames.com, the cable that ships in the box is a combo component and composite AV cable, so if you don't have an HDTV, you will not have to buy an extra video cable.

Any word on what the core vs. premium SKU breakdown is for the 60 units per Best Buy store?
