15441  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Million Dollar Baby [Movie] on: January 10, 2005, 01:06:47 PM
Got to see an early screening of the new movie Million Dollar Baby starring Hillary Swank, Morgan Freeman, and Clint Eastwood (who also directed and scored the film).  This movie is fantastic!  If it doesn't win a metric ton of awards I'll be shocked and surprised...by far one of the best movies I've seen in a long long while, hands down.

Anyone else see it?
15442  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MechAssault2 Game impressions (WARNING - Spoilers) on: January 05, 2005, 11:04:21 PM
Sounds like you had the same experience I did Justin.  That end boss had me swearing in several languages.  The ending was just horrible and cliche'.  Bleh.  

That said, maybe we can get some online time sometime soon!

That's right, it is Lil' Mermaid.  There are more things like this though, the "Sex" clouds in Lion King for instance.

There is a front page to our site?  Who knew? slywink   retard

BTW, the dude who did the wang on the Alladin cover is now doing S&N porn comics...its in December's Playboy issue.
15445  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Elektra on: January 05, 2005, 05:11:50 PM
Yep, and they did suck.  For instance, Aliens Vs. Predator.  I was there opening day, and man...it did suck.
15446  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Elektra on: January 05, 2005, 02:08:13 PM
It will absolutely suck, and I'll be right there on opening day - tickets in hand.

A whole movie devoted to Jennifer Garner in leather?  I'm sold.  No plot required.

(Oh, and I'll just say it before Mitch gets here...blah blah, worthless without pictures yadda)

I agree though, I'm encountering more issues on Tuesdays than any other day.

15450  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mechassault 2 - Conquest mode problem on: January 03, 2005, 09:15:14 PM
I liked the game as well, but I did admit that the multiplayer was a bit untested at the time of review.  These next few weeks will be crucial to determine whether this is a great game or a 'could have been a great game'.

Perhaps Loren would point us in the right direction as to where to look.  He works for a political body so he might be able to tell us how to go about it...

15454  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Online Gaming and Taxation - your rights under assault on: January 03, 2005, 01:40:46 PM
We messed up the original plan...we should have thrown the politicians into the harbor, not the tea.

Hit the front page folks...seems some states don't think your opinion matters and slipped some amusing little taxes under the radar.

Why couldn't it have been Gamespy or IGN?

Don't worry....I openly admit that its my goal to shut IGN down. smile  I'll achieve that goal some day....
15458  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where is OO? on: December 29, 2004, 01:33:39 PM
I'm too busy to be bitter.  My only pain is that I don't feel very welcome when I go to OO.  The few times I've been over there it hasn't been pleasant so I don't go anymore.  It has more to do with the readership than the leadership, although there are pains there too.

As for us all hanging out together, I wish that was the case, but as somebody who had to straddle both sides of the fence, I am going to completely disagree that we had that kind of relationship between CG and GG once we moved into our own home.

Oh yea....we got the cool smileys too.  As for not being a PC site, meh...we held the only review on the entire Internet of Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines for several days.  I'd not call that a small feat...hell, IGN was almost a week behind us.  We do plenty of PC gaming round these parts...

If it makes you console haters any more comfy, you can think of a console more along these terms. Linky cuz its huge.
15460  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / What happens if your personal message box is full? on: December 28, 2004, 04:53:56 AM
Of course.  smile
15461  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / What happens if your personal message box is full? on: December 28, 2004, 01:13:29 AM
You should get a mailbox full notification.   The pain in the ass is that it uses a pop-up to notify the recipient that they have new messages so unless they allow pop-ups from us they won't see the notification.  You'd have to rely on their powers of observation to see the "1 message waiting" notice.
15462  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Random Fighting Discussion on: December 27, 2004, 05:32:27 PM
I like kickboxing as much as the next, the only drag is that most of the fighters I've trained with are more destroyed by the training than any battles they might find themselves in.  They burn out too fast.  Martial Arts, traditional ones anyway, are a way of life.  You train for life and you live to train.  I might be a little more soggy round the midsection than in my prime but I've not lost any of my lethality because I did put in the 6 days a week, 4 hours a day for about 22 years.  I look forward to graduation from college not so much that I'll be a network engineer but more that I'll free that school time to go back to training.   You want to learn how to fight 'quickly'?  You might want to rethink why you want to learn how to fight, it might be just a hot head talking.  You want to learn how to completely devistate your aggressors two and three at a time with minimal effort?  Put in the time and get 'good' at a martial art.
15463  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Halo 2.5 on xbox 2...confirmed?!?!? on: December 26, 2004, 03:16:17 PM
I've heard this rumor since the day Halo 2 was launched, but its impossible to confirm.
15464  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Merry Christmas to all! on: December 25, 2004, 07:45:57 PM
Merry Christmas to everyone as well from all of us. smile

My wife and I are skipping the Christmas gift thing this year, her gift from her boss was the opportunity to find another job. :/  Oh well, my mom is here and we are having a big dinner as a family, that is worth it for me.
15465  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / No cd cracks and CoC on: December 24, 2004, 03:03:19 PM
I'll tell you a story that will explain my feelings on them.  I am a huge Ultima fan...despite being burned time and time again by EA and their purchase of Origin I was very much anticipating Ultima 9.  I got the game and rushed home to install it.  I had purchased the "Dragon" edition, the box is essentially the size of a sheet of drywall and there are a ton of goodies inside.  I more than paid for my purchase.  

I couldn't play it.

For whatever reason, safedisc hated the True52X CDRoms from Kenwood and I happened to have one.  I had to resort to a no-cd crack to play the game and realize my full dissapointment.

Fast forward to more recent times, I'm playing Morrowind and I'm wondering why I'm getting such jerky performance on my system.  One no-cd crack later and the thing runs like silk.

Lets face it, no-cd cracks are almost necessary for some games to even function.   That said, lets be smart about it, take it to PM or email.  Out and out requests for the no-cd in public forums make the publishers unhappy which hurts the site, some of them don't realize that we are a more mature gaming crowd who actually purchase the games we play.

15472  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Flashing banner ads: anyone else want them to stay off?? on: December 20, 2004, 11:24:36 PM
I'd ask that if you see a particular ad that is irritating or offensive you send me a screenshot at [email protected] so that I can send it to the agency for deletion.  It makes it easier than describing them. smile Thanks!
15473  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vampire: Bloodlines Import question on: December 20, 2004, 12:30:53 PM
I'll research it and find out.
15474  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Flashing banner ads: anyone else want them to stay off?? on: December 20, 2004, 12:57:36 AM
It could be a second ad Raven.  The point is you don't have to be rude about it. :roll:  I had one removed, that much I can confirm.   If I see (or am alerted) to another one, I'll have it removed.  I see the other one that you are talking about so I sent a request to have it removed - I'm sure it'll be done Monday morning.  Until that time, I challenge you to find me another webmaster that is willing to remove an ad just because YOU don't like it.

I am very appreciative of what you guys are doing!  Thankfully the agency I work with is aware that I will not compromise my readership with shoddy ads and they are very responsive when I ask them to remove the offenders.  

On behalf of the staff, thanks again...I can't express how much it means that you value the site and our work that much.   Happy Holidays!
15479  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Flashing banner ads: anyone else want them to stay off?? on: December 17, 2004, 11:40:21 AM
Got a response from the agency that provides those, he assures me it'll be gone first thing this morning. smile

D'oh!  I'll have that thing killed immediately. smile  As for the paypal thing, it is always appreciated - my paypal account is [email protected] and all proceeds go directly to server costs. smile  I'm glad that you guys enjoy the site, one day I hope to be able to do it with only game related ads...we are getting there, this is just a step to move in that direction.
