I dunno on this one.  Team based stuff is always a mixed bag.  I can never really get a good batch of non-jacktards together enough times to justify the purchase on things that are pretty much multi-only.  I'm hoping that this'll be different but I'll wait a bit to see how it goes....

Still a bit question mark in the MMO world, but we have a date on the closed Beta.  As long as its more like the first movie and nothing like the second and third I think we'll be ok...

After getting an email from Vermouth pointing to a forum post by Gabe Newell about the status of Half-Life 2 I decided to check with Gabe myself to make sure we werent looking at another spoofed post. So, here you go.. a couple of quick bits from Gabe on what up:

"Yes, the RC went to VU yesterday""

RC being a release candidate.. which means they hope its done but a couple of bugs may still show up in testing. RC cycles can be fairly quick or drag on for weeks. Oh and for completeness, here is Gabe's response to my asking for confirmation:

"Yes.  Getting close"

The highest rank of angels, the Seraphim have the task of constantly circling God and telling Him He's great without actually looking at him. This pretty much fits in with popular notions of core angel skill-sets. The weird thing is that they have six wings and four heads. That's eerie. It's not the sort of thing I associate with angels. That's the sort of thing I associate with Final Fantasy boss monsters. Maybe evangelists could work with that.

15877  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Rapture.... on: September 10, 2004, 04:24:41 PM
So I'm sitting here writing reports and listening to Club977.com's streaming 80's.  Blondie's song Rapture comes on....

That song is by far one of the most retarded songs I've ever heard.  Why did it take me until now to realize how stupid it is?  Let me explain...

"Toe to toe dancing very close
Body breathing almost comatose
Wall to wall people hypnotized
And they're stepping lightly
Hang each night in rapture
Back to back sacroiliac
Spineless movement and a wild attack
Face to face sightless solitude
And it's finger popping
Twenty four hour shopping in rapture
Fab Five Freddy told me everybody's fly
DJ spinning I said "My My"
Flash is fast flash is cool
Francois c'est pas flashe non due
And you don't stop sure shot
Go out to the parking lot
And you get in your car and drive real far
And you drive all night and then you see a light
And it comes right down and it lands on the ground
And out comes the man from Mars
And you try to run but he's got a gun
And he shoots you dead and he eats your head
And then you're in the man from Mars
You go out at night eating cars
You eat Cadillacs Lincolns too
Mercurys and Subaru
And you don't stop
You keep on eating cars
Then when there's no more cars you go out at night
And eat up bars where the people meet
Face to face
Dance cheek to cheek
One to one
Man to man
Dance toe to toe
Don't move too slow 'cause the man from Mars is through with
cars
He's eating bars
Yeah wall to wall
Door to door
Hall to hall
He's gonna eat 'em all
Rapture
Be pure
Take a tour through the sewer
Don't strain your brain
Paint a train
You'll be singing in the rain
Said don't stop to the punk rock
back to back, body muscular spinless movement, bite the jugular
one to one
technology
And a ardour, no sign of saviour in Rapture
Well now you see what you wanna be
Just have your party on TV
'Cause the man from Mars won't eat up bars where the TV's on
And now he's gone back up to space where he won't have a hassle
with the
human race
And you hip hop
And you don't stop
Just blast off sure shot
Because the man from Mars stopped eating cars
And eating bars
And now he only eats guitars
Get up!"

Ok....if you can read about the man from Mars eating anything that would rhyme with bars and not wonder just why this song is/was popular...I can't be all alone on this one.
