That was the really only 'pro wrestling' style entrance they showed wasn't it?


It was the only one I remember seeing.

I loved the game as well.  I still need to finish Point Lookout and download The Pitt at some point.  I missed several bobbleheads in areas I had went through already.  I eventually went back and got them all except one.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I missed the one in Raven Rock and in the 360 version I don't believe you can go back and get it.  icon_frown

I didn't think the cut/broken nose was a big deal.  It looked bad but I didn't feel like it was going to influence the fight all that much.  The series where Fedor was on his back could have ended the fight.  As others have stated, one good punch landing with those huge hands Rogers has could have ended it.   Otherwise, I thought Fedor was in control most of the match.  Big thumbs up for CBS on this one.  I hope they can follow it up with something as entertaining.

If we can include PC titles, I'm pretty sure some of the obscure European titles I've liked over the years (the TBS game Odium comes to mind) probably sold like 27 copies in the U.S.  icon_razz

I think I still have my copy of Odium in a box in the garage.  icon_biggrin

Our preference is female... BUT...

Our criteria, in order, are: temperament, intelligence, sex, looks, I guess.  I think the breed will be a really great fit for us.

I guess in Colorado, where the dog is coming from, it's illegal to sell a dog before 8 weeks.

And yes, the name is totally ridiculous... but that's okay as long as the dog isn't. smile

We have friends who have a golden doodle and just got a second one.  We dog sit for them on occasion.  They are a great dog.  She is really good with our two dogs and our cat.  She is also excellant with our two children.  I think you will be happy with the breed.

The minis sure are a lot prettier than in the original set.   

Now I'm tempted, too.   

I always wanted a copy of the original set and the expansions but never wanted to pay the ebay prices.  The minis are nice.  The bases on the gene stealers look top notch.

I don't know what was more brutal the Bisping knock out or Lesnar pounding Mir's face.  I thought it was a pretty good card. I did think the Belcher  decision was pretty questionable.  I thought he had did enough to win that one. Kind of makes you wonder if the UFC didn't want Akiyama to win that one.

Did his wealth allow him to afford a better lawyer who had adequate time to prepare a case? I'm sure it did.  Did the fact that he cooperated 100% with the authorities play a part? Most likely.   Did the fact that the victims own action played a part? Probably.  If the DA thought he had a case that was rock solid, I'm sure he wouldn't have cut a deal.  As others have said, whether we should sentence drunk driving more harshly is another matter.  I'm not sure this sentence was that far out of line from others of its type. I just think it is shocking to hear that you can kill someone while over the legal alcohol limit and get what appears to be such a small penalty.

Being a huge fan of the 40k universe, I'm in on day one unless the early reviews are horrible.

Going by previous games it seems like if it isn't Dawn of War it's not really worth playing. I know that GW is using the Space Marines as their way to reach the masses with 40k, but c'mon, there are so many better forces than the space marines.

Back in the day, Chaos Gate was pretty good.  I think there was  an RTS that was based off of the Epic tabletop system that was pretty good too.  The one real stinker I can think of off the top of my head was Fire Warrior which was based on the Tau.

I agree that there are other forces that are pretty interesting as well but I don't know if they would lend themselves to a god of war style game.  I guess chaos marines would fit the bill but they are still marines.  Plus your right, Space Marines are the way that GW is marketing the universe.  I'd love to see a Battlefleet Gothic game but the chances of that are next to none.

Epic 40K: Final Liberation. Very good game. Very good cutscenes, for the time... I wish there was someplace that had high rez versions of them.
There was also Rites of War, which was 40k done with the Panzer General 2 engine. It got spotty reviews, but I -loved- that game. SP has you as the Eldar, but on I think for multi you could be Tyranid/Genestealer Cult, SM/IG or Eldar.

For the 40k fan both (and 3 including Chaos Gate) are worth tracking down. I had gotten Final Liberation, Chaos Gate AND Rites of War as part of a 2 box sale at Compusa back in the day... some box set offering that included the non-40k Warhammer pc titles as well. Darn sweet deal.

Fire Warrior.... played it once, I keep meaning to go back and replay it to see if it's really as bad as I remembered it or not. The cutscenes, however, are awesome. I think I read somewhere that Tom Baker is the narrator for them, which if so makes 'em even better. Sadly, I'm pretty sure my memory is spot on and the gameplay stinks. Download the movies or youtube them and skip the gameplay.

I think I may have Rites of War boxed up some where along with Chaos Gate. I may have to go dig them out and try and load them on my netbook.  They might be a good distraction when traveling.

Quote from: Tebunker on May 29, 2009, 12:34:54 PM

Heck just look at the different factions of the Empire, an Inquisitor and either some Witch Hunter or Daemon Hunters and you can make just about any Space Marine army fall to pieces. I understand that they are using the Marines as they are the most recognizable faction, and they are what GW is pushing to get folks in to 40k. Hopefully these are just placeholders and they are planning on using one of the subsets like the Black Templars or Dark Angels. It's not this would keep me from playing a good game, I'd just like to see something other than the regular ole Space Marine.

Damn, I didn't think about an Inquisitor.  That could make for a great game.  I loved the Eisenhorn and Ravenor series.

Although, I don't have any hard evidence to support my feelings but I wouldn't.  On the other hand, you already live close so I assume you are comfortable living in the area.  We have a plant about 30 miles from my house and that is close enough for me.  I'm worried about an accident as opposed to increase risk of cancer at this distance.

We are well overdue for a pandemic.  I'm not too worried about this particular virus though.  While it is resistant to a couple of antiviral medications, it is still susceptible to Tamiflu.  Also, while we have infections in the USA, we've had no deaths. This is probably due to several reasons but it gives me hope that if the infections rise the death rate will be low.  No need to stock up on ammo and bottled water quite yet.  icon_biggrin

I'll drop by my local gameshop tonight and take a look at some 28mm figures to see if it's going to be too much for these old eyes/hands. 

28mm isn't too bad on the eyes.  I started to paint up a 15mm Flames of War German force and it was pretty tough for me.  I think I painted a squad before putting it away and havent went back to it.

I picked my AE-WWII starters up at a shop in Madison, Wisconsin when I was up there on business last summer.  I usually buy on line at http://www.thewarstore.com/ , https://www.scifigenre.com/index.aspx?sid=KW0X1SJMLVHU1NI , http://www.ccgarmory.com/ or http://www.miniaturemarket.com/home.  I've used the warstore the most and have been very pleased with them. The others I've only ordered from a couple of times each but have had no bad experiences with any of them.

Dear NCS Customer,

    Sony Hong Kong has not released the next batch of Demon's Souls yet but please note that Hong Kong businesses will be on their Easter holiday between April 10 to April 14. Due to the holiday, there will not be any news or shipments until after April 14. We will email our customers again once we receive an update but based on what distributors have told us last night, it may be another 1-2 weeks until the next production of the game is ready to ship. Thanks for your attention.
 
Regards,
NCSX Inc


I got the same email.  icon_frown  Oh well, guess I'll have a couple of weeks to get my backlog down.

Well, I just ordered it on Ebay.  Buy it now for $49.00, shipping is Priority Mail $4 from a seller in Texas, and I got $5.39 cashback.  So less than $50 total - not too shabby.

I guess what made me go for it was semi's comment:

"...yeah, if you love monster hunter, you'll love this..."

You got a good deal.   I'm still waiting for NCSX to ship mine.

I've enjoyed them both but I spent a lot more time playing COD4.   Maybe it was because it seemed somewhat fresh to play in a modern setting compared to the flood of WW2 games in recent years.

I'm probably more interested in Battleforge at the moment.  I'd bet Starcraft sells more than the other two combined though.  Heck it will probably sell more in Korea than the other two games worldwide sales total.  I'm kind of meh on Starcraft 2 at the moment but I'm sure I'll pick it up eventually.

*sigh*

I've been looking to get back into miniatures games and the hobby.  I was already planning to grab a few GW miniatures just to paint up, but now a friend and his cousin have already gotten into 40k so I'm going to have to pickup and army.  Normally I would buy from local stores but GW prices are so ridiculous I'll end up buying online from a discounter.

I'm torn between Orks, Eldar, Space Marines, and maybe even Imperial guard, in that order.  One friend is playing Eldar, another is playing Tau.

Anyone know if the Kill team rules are still supported?

Don't know about the kill team rules. They were in the 4th edition. I havent seen the new 5th edition yet.  I would say if your looking at Orks or Space Marines, the Assault on Black Reach box would be a good start for you. I think it is about 400-500 points of both, a mini rulebook and some templates. It looks like an awesome deal for $60.  You can get it from the warestore.com for 20% off as well.
