161  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Super Bowl XLIII on: February 02, 2009, 04:23:45 PM

Quote from: Hiccup on February 02, 2009, 03:10:41 PM

Santonio Holmes makes my head hurt.

During his quick interview after the game, he was asked what was going throug his mind when Fitzgerald was scoring on that long TD pass.  If this quote isn't word for word, I'm sorry but my brain shut down after I heard it

"I knew our defense would get us the ball back"...

Yes, yes they did, by allowing a 64 yard TD.



 icon_biggrin I thought that was funny too.

I was thinking about giving this one a try when it comes out because it seems so different than the current crop of MMORPGs. No mouselook seems pretty odd though and may be a deal killer for me.

I found a copy of Mutant League football out in my garage a few years ago. Too bad I had sold my Genesis years before.  I'm looking forward to Blood Bowl. I bought a copy of the Games Workshop game a few years back but never got around to painting the miniatures.  I'm in for the 360 version.

We've shopped online for Christmas for years now but this was the first year that the majority of our shopping was done there.  I used Amazon for almost everthing. Most items were cheaper on Amazon, I paid no sales tax so that saves 8% and with Prime I had no worries about it arriving on time.  I signed up for the free two week trial around the holidays and decided to keep it.  I'm sure my savings for the holidays alone paid for the memebership.  It was worth it to me and I was always a free supersaver shipping guy in the past.

I went into the circuit city by my office today over lunch.  Not much there that I couldn't get cheaper somewhere else even with the 10%.  !0% off wasn't enough to make me waste my lunch hour standing in line.  There were probably 50 people standing in line to check out with 2 employees at the service desk to handle it.  The funny thing is I've went in their tons of times and I've never seen more than 5 cars in the lot.  Today it was tough to find a parking place.

I've used this site a few times. http://www.scifigenre.com/itemList.aspx?sid=QRYY0XMH11V101Q&nSubCategoryID=135&nExpandToID=2573 You can order direct from them, at least until GW finds out they are doing it.  They are selling the set for $51.25.  Don't know  what the shipping would be to Canada. I second the War Store recommendation. Great place to order from. CCG armory is another good place to get a 20% discount on GW products.

Wow.  That is amazing that they are capable of operations of that size. I'd be curious to know if it is all light infantry or something with a little more fire power.  Either way it is pretty scary stuff.
171  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Will this be the beginning of the end of Blackwater? on: December 11, 2008, 04:15:21 AM
Not sure if they have that kind of resources to self fund an invasion of that size but I read somewhere that the CEO bragged that he could put a battalion sized infantry force anywhere in the world within a few days.  If I'm thinking right that would be around 1000-1500 troops. Scary that a private organization can field a private army of that size much less as a rapid reaction force. It would be possible to partner up with an existing "rebel" faction in a small country and pull off a coup d’état.
172  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Rod Blagojevich selling Obama's seat on: December 10, 2008, 12:53:01 AM
Blagojevich is a scumbag.  He has been under investigatiion for years for corruption.  There was an accusation that his daughter was given several thousand dollars as a birthday present a couple of years ago. The wife of the gift giver received some kind of goverment position a few months later.  I'm not sure if he still does this but he refused to live in the govenors mansion in Springfield. He lived in Chicago and flew down in a private jet being paid for by the taxpayers.  He created a prescription drug/health care program that was shot down in court.  He then refused to pay the pharmacies who provided the drugs to the patients covered under the plan for the medications that was dispensed.  I hope impeachment proceedings are about to begin. We sure know how to pick em in Illinois. The last guy in the offices is in prison.  icon_biggrin

I thought that speech was a great speech. I honestly like McCain. Wouldn't mind sharing a few beers with him, but I couldn't vote for him.

His speech was exactly what was needed. He spoke to the historical quality of the election, he spoke to his government service and to his love of country. He even mentioned Obama grandmother and how sad it was she had recently died and that he was sure how proud of him she would be.

A great speech.

You took the words out of my mouth.  I respect McCain for what he has accomlished and if he had won the Republican nomination in 2000 I would have voted for him.  I coudn't vote for him yesterday though.  I hope Obama has a successful presidency.

Any other time of year, I'd buy Saints Row but with all the releases coming out I guess it will go in the gamefly list. Dead Space is a probably but I'd like to read another review or two. I'm worried about the controls. I hated the RE style controls and it sounds similiar. SOCOM may go on the Christmas List if it gets decent reviews.

It is not too expensive and much better than Jack Daniels.   I prefer this, http://www.jamesonwhiskey.com/text/global/enjoy/premium/redbreast.php, for a good Irish Whiskey.  As far as scotch goes, I like this one, http://www.themacallan.com/shop/detail.asp?pid=WEEU0800.

Davis is a joke. He can't even handle a firing well.  He is even trying to get out of not paying off the Kiffin's contract. If they had any class at all, they would have fired him in the off season, paid the contract and moved on.  I'm not sure what kind of coach would take the job. The Raiders are doomed to fail until Davis retires or kicks the bucket.

This can't surprise anyone. Davis did the same thing to Shanahan after he was fired midway through his 2nd season.

Davis is never going to retire.

I forgot that he tried to stiff Shanahan on his contract.  I think he should just coach the team. That's what he really wants anyway.

I completely ignored the angle of Davis trying to stiff Kiffin.  Now, any coach with enough talent to save that mess will also have to wonder if he's going to get stiffed in his paycheck.  Priceless.  icon_lol  Sorry Raiders fans, I wish you luck in the future.  Hey, The Loins fans got a ray of hope this year, who knows whats in store?

Oh, and I just found out the Bengals picked up Cedric Benson. ALL TIME. CLASSIC.  Let's see, underachieving team with numerous legal problems hires a disinterested underachieving legally-challenged waste of space.  Rudi Johnson...to Cedric Benson.  Good god, if I was Bengals fan I would be suicidal right now.

Yeah, they have no chance of getting any decent coaching prospect now.  Only washed up coaches looking for another chance need apply.  Of course that fits with the players they pick up off the garbage pile so maybe it's fitting.

Nothing this week on that list, but I will get Silent Hill some day.  My problem is I keep finding recent, but older, games at killer prices everywhere and can't resist getting them.  Hell, I found Grid for 360 today at Target on clearance for $14.98.  Everywhere else it is still $59.  I have found 3 this week alone at sub $15 prices.  Just can't resist em and since soooo many of these games drop like rocks like this I am finding it harder and harder to jump day one.

Plus, like others have said Oct November is ridiculous with awesome games.  Must resist.

I'm finding myself doing the same thing. Target is keeping me in games lately.  Combine that with all the games coming out next month and a new found Warhammere addction and it all adds up to me buyin nothing this week.

I cannot for the life of me figure out WHY Trent Green would voluntarily get behind that offensive line after he already got his head destroyed last year (or was it the year before?).  Dude wants to die.

gellar

I predict 2 games max before he is carted off the field.  It seems like all the guys who get multiple concussions never know when to hang it up.  A knee or shoulder I could understand but multiple head injuries.  I don't know about you but if I had a job where I was going to retire by 35 as a pretty wealthy guy, I'd like to have enough of my brain left to enjoy it.
189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamefly kind of sucks on: September 25, 2008, 02:32:45 PM
I'm getting a irritated at GameFly as well. I had the exact same situation as Jeff's occur twice.   I decided to buy the game and it took 6-7 days to ship the next one in my list.  I'm pretty sure that I'm going to cancel after this month. I thought it would keep me from buying so many games but the long ship times are killing it for me. We use Blockbuster online for movies. The ship times are so much better than Gamefly.  I realize that Blockbuster is a much bigger company but damn, six days to even ship my next game.  Plus it seems the actual transit time from Gamefly to my house is at least 4 to 5 days from the time I get my ship email to the time it gets to my door. I think I'll quit and maybe try again later if they get a little better.

Simply put, I haven't had this much fun in a MMO since WoW was released. There's always something to do and someplace to see. Tired of questing? Hit a public PvP area or scenario - there's always one active unless it's 6 AM. Tired of PvP? No problem, there's always quests to do. Can't find a group and tired of running solo? There's a public quest around the corner with a mass of folks doing it - start participating and you'll find yourself invited in no time. Tired of your class? Well, there are a ton more that you haven't even tried and 6 different starting areas.


This pretty much sums up my feelings as well.   Warhammer is just tons of fun to play right now. Part of this may be due to the fact that I've tinkered with tabletop Warhammer so the universe is familiar.

Ok, so I installed Spore from my DVD and tried to run it, but it's telling me that I need the lastest drivers for my 8800 GTS SLI set up. Um, I checked nVidia's site and it tells me that my drivers are up to date. So do I have to install the beta drivers with that physics crap in it? The last time I did it, it hosed my PC.

I had the same issue with my 8800M SLI for my laptop.  I was using the latest Dell drivers but when I updated to the latest NVIDIA drivers it worked fine for me. A quick google search lead me to a couple of websites with people having the same issue. This is why I mainly console game anymore. This kind of crap drives me crazy. My game time is so limited that I don't have time to deal with things like this.

Regardless, I think the Brewers should shut up.  Let's be pros here.  They should be happy with the win and how well they're playing, not crying over lost personal accomplishments.

I disagree. As a Cubs fan I hope the Brewers continue focusing on meaningless crap and leaving Sabathia out there to throw 117 pitches in a blow-out slywink.

It really does seem like the Brewers are using up his arm. I guess they only have a rental for half a year so they want to get all they can out of him. I know CC is a horse but going he has really racked up some innings. I'd be concerned if I was him since he will get a huge payday next year if healthy.

I played the first four levels. It's a fun little diversion. Not really what I think of when it comes to zombies but fun anyway. I think it would have been better if it would have been groups of zombies as in the Romero movies. This is more of a Japanese monster movie type vibe.
