American Tabloid by James Ellroy. He perfects his staccato delivery from White Jazz and delivers a great alternative history of the JFK assassination. This is the book that turned me into a rabid Ellroy fan - too bad the next two books in the trilogy did not live up to this fantastic start - Bloods a Rover was just a chore for me to read.

Hmm I always hear good things on Plants vs Zombies. I did play the demo to that Lara Croft game. Seemed pretty cool but the AI tribesman didn't travel around with me and help at all. Just gave me his magic spear. Does he actually help in the full game because from what I read about it he would seem to have to. Is it tough to find someone to co-op with?

Oh also tried the Deathspank demo..was ok..has promise...just not sure.
The spear gives Lara some of the other guy's abilities so that you can play the game alone and still complete the co-op puzzles.

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero has been the best 400 points I have ever spent.

Spoiler for Hiden:
make sure as soon as the fight starts to open the door where you just came through,he doesn't follow you in there,and you can eat snacks/drink orange juice and then go back out to continue the fight(spiked Bat works wonders)
I thought about that afterwards.

This is really a great collection of highly recognizable pieces due to their inclusion in a ton of movies and classic WB cartoons. Listen to the samples and you might be surprised at how many "recognisable" pieces there are on here.

I keep my PSP in almost constant sleep mode and I only have to charge it about every two weeks or so. Clearly I am not gaming on it much, but I *never* turn it off.

The DS vs PSP issue may come down to how you intend to play.  If you play in short bursts, the DS may be better because it is faster to get from turning the unit on to actually playing.
I disagree with this. I use the sleep feature all the time with my PSP1000 and can be up and gaming in seconds.

Found a kmart with 1 freaking copy left. Thanks!
Same here. I would guess that this is good until Saturday, but my copy was not marked by any price so it is probably worth checking out.
14  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Square Enix + PopCap = Gyromancer on: March 19, 2010, 06:11:41 PM
Thanks, MG. I would love to have a more detailed view, but this is at least an improvement.

BTW, I am really loving the game right now. It really is more of a "Pokemon" RPG hybrid than a "loot and stats" RPG hybrid like Puzzle Quest. The upgraded creatures have some really cool abilities that bring some serious strategy into the gameplay. For example, I have a yellow wolf guy who can set off opponents abilities if he is able to destroy them with one of his own ability gems. Therefore, it is a good strategy to save some of the long range gems until an opponent has popped out a skull gem and then try to knock it out with one of mine. I'm starting to run across opponents that remove my gems, so it is a bit of a game to see how long I can keep something out.

I find the game pretty deep and fun. Just don't go in expecting Puzzle Quest and I think it will be much more enjoyable.
15  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rumor: USB Storage for 360 in Spring Update on: March 19, 2010, 05:53:00 PM
The coolest part of this is that it could make the arcade a much more viable system for MS. Drop the price a little more, include a 2GB (or lower) USB drive with the system - just to give noobs the idea - and then have a ton of XBLA and DLC customers where they can really make some money.
16  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Square Enix + PopCap = Gyromancer on: March 14, 2010, 06:16:33 PM
Well, I really like the puzzle mechanics of this game. I have a question about the PC version: Can you zoom out on the game maps? I haven't been able to find out how to do this and I would love to see more of the map so I can move more efficiently.

Adam Lambert's album is up for $3.99 as well. I previewed a few of the songs and I am much less impressed than I was during last season. No longer such a must buy for me but YMMV.

It has been going on for the last two days and the BoC just went up @ ~2:45pm PST.

When do the markdowns take place roughly?  I saw a couple of games that I wasn't quite ready to jump on but would if they went down another $5-10.
My local Targets update the clearance area on Mondays.

If you can find it (and if your DS has a GBA cartridge slot), Wario Ware Twisted is just a blast.

I didn't really like the DS version (Touched), but it looks like that may be even more rare so no problem.
26  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: CoD: MW2 for $20 at EB Games on: November 08, 2009, 05:15:02 AM
The deal actually works for a bunch of newer games
I used it for DAO and traded in Boom Blox and Saints Row 2. I usually think these deals are for suckers, but this was a good trade IMHO.
27  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Amazon MP3 Daily Deal plus various other MP3 deals (keep it updated!) on: November 07, 2009, 04:50:03 PM
Not today's deal but they have Ramones Greatest Hits for $2.99.

Today's deal is Continuum by John Mayer

Damn. Saving $2 by buying through Encore makes this whole patching thing really annoying. My games have been so unstable that I decided to wait for the patch before continuing.

Quick questions from a total Halo noob...

1) Should I really be exchanging my weapons for alien tech right away? Ammo for my stuff seems to be awfully scarce - I've only just started the first flashback so maybe the actual game will be different.

2) What is the best way to deal with shielded opponents early on? Those guys eat my automatic rifle ammo for breakfast!

The game is pretty cool and I love taking out grunts with my pistol, but those brutes are really chapping my ass...

Okay, totally wrong century, but The Alienist by Caleb Carrhttp://www.amazon.com/Alienist-Novel-Caleb-Carr/dp/0812976142/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1249705607&sr=1-3 is just fantastic.

Also, James Ellroy can't be beat for sick, psycho-sexual, mid 20th century, crime novels. I'm currently reading The L.A. Quartet for about the 4th time.

This is for all the Orlando whiners...

Howard just had his 5th foul of the game - 3/4 of the way through the 3rd quarter - transferred to Hedo T.

All stars get preferential treatment, not just the evil Kobe.
38  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NBA Playoffs 2009 on: June 12, 2009, 06:04:44 PM
Considering that the officiating is pretty bad to horrible for both sides, I would consider this a poor agument. Also, it is a fact of life in the NBA that stars have different treatment and that the playoff tend to be a bit rougher. Both sides are dealing with the same type of abuse. Strange side affect of the "biased" officiating was Orlando having almost double the free throw attempts that the Lakers had - too bad their percentage was so low...

Don't blame the officials...Orlando has thrown away two games all by themselves.
39  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NBA Playoffs 2009 on: June 12, 2009, 05:34:26 AM
D Fish is D man!

Does Orlando use Pam instead of talc on their hands? They really let a poorly shooting Laker team stick around way too long and then lost their heads just as the Lakers were finally putting it back together. I certainly have a lot more respect for Stan Van Gundy after this series, but his players really make some bonehead moves at times. Nice to see Nelson get popped in the mouth at the end - I was hoping he swallowed that fucking mouthpiece he likes to show off so much.
40  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Im no wine snob so this stuff rocks on: June 11, 2009, 12:40:35 AM
One of the best ways to really appreciate red wines is to have them with food - either a nice steak or pasta with tomato/meat sauce. Syrahs (also known as shiraz) are also a nice entry wine as they are pretty fruit forward in general without being overly sweet. If you have a Fresh & Easy in town, go grab their Big Kahuna for $1.99 a bottle - shockingly good for the price and just knocks the shit out of Trader Joe's "2 buck Chuck" Charles Shaw wines.

As everyones else has said, drink what you like...but it is also fun to be a little adventurous at times and maybe you will stumble into something you like even better than your new find.
