I second The Real Me. Great song.
442  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: WTF is with McCain? on: December 13, 2006, 04:33:50 PM
I think he believes that it will be impossible to win the Republican nomination without courting the ultra right of the party.  He is probably right.  I think the sad truth is it will be difficult for either party to nominate a candidate that doesn't suck up to the far right or far left.  Then whoever wins has to try and swing toward the middle ground to get elected in the general election. In my mind you never know what someone really stands for at all. They just say what it takes to get elected. At this point, I probably wouldn't vote for McCain either unless the choice was much worse.  A few years ago, he would have probably been my pick.

My Meijer in Bloomington, Illinois had about 20 people waiting at around 9pm in the electronics department. I have one preorderd at Toys R Us but I wanted to grab an extra controller if they were selling them. No luck there. My Best Buy had about 20 people outside with a sign on the door that they had 84 consoles in stock. Not too bad there.  Target had about 8-10 people outside. Nobody outside of Kmart, Circuit City, or Toys R Us. Id say anyone around here that wants one tomorrow and gets to the stores early will get one.

I second the warstore recommendation. Ive ordered from the by phone for GW stuff and via the web store for other things and all my orders went very well. Every time Ive called, Neal, the owner answers the phone. Shipping is fast and cheap too.  Ive ordered from them about 10 times and never had an issue.
445  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / "Stars are Blind" by Paris Hilton is a GREAT song! on: July 25, 2006, 01:54:59 AM
I'm pretty sure the fact she even has a song is a sign that the end of the world is near.........
446  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Serenity - Movie on: July 25, 2006, 01:53:13 AM
I saw the movie before watching the series as well. Go out and buy it. You'll love it if you enjoyed the movie at all. Warning, you will be depressed that its the end of a series that had so much potential.  :cry:
447  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone still hyped for Shadow of the Colossus? on: July 25, 2006, 01:48:22 AM
For 19.99, I may have to grab this one at some point. It seems like a no brainer at that price point.  Im suprised I held out against the forum effect as long as I have.
448  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (7/24) on: July 25, 2006, 01:44:43 AM
Im holding out until August as well. Dead Rising will probably be the next game I shell out for.
449  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Trauma Center is the hardest game I've ever played on: July 06, 2006, 01:05:53 AM
The hardest part of the game for me is finding a copy.  biggrin  I've looked all over. I read somewhere it may be getting a reprint this month but who knows.
450  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Has next-gen DVD already failed? on: June 27, 2006, 01:12:29 AM
I'm usually a pretty early adopter of new technology but I have to say that I'm going to wait a while on this one. I still have bad memories of VHS versus Beta.  I'm going to have to see a clear winner before I upgrade.  I would love to see how it looks on my HDTV though.
451  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / BB RewardZone - 5 bucks off games on: April 04, 2006, 03:55:24 AM
I took one of the coupons from the web site in a few weeks ago that got you Act of War for the PC for $9.99. It was a royal pain. I went through the checkout line and the cashier was clueless. She called the cashier supervisor over who told me they dont take coupons from other web sites. I explained to her that it was from Best Buy's web site. She told me it wasn't and that she wouldnt let me use it. She did everything but flat out call me a liar and she was rude as hell. I got pissed and walked out.

I got about three steps outside the door and got more pissed and went back in. I went to the customer service department and they didnt believe me either. I had to take the guy from behind the desk to one of their computers with internet connectivity and prove it was a coupon from their site. His response was "huh, I didnt know we did that". On the way out the door, I had to stop and tell the cashier supervisor she was wrong and thanks for wasting my time. She didnt reply. I hate best buy. Im not sure its worth the $5.00 to use the damn coupons.  Nice find though for people who have decent employees in their store.
452  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Lego SW and GTA:SA - $10 at CC on: March 20, 2006, 03:36:25 AM
My CC was already sold out of Star Wars Lego for the PS2. They seemed to have all the rest. I'll have to check back later and see if they restocked.   Why do they always sell out of what Im looking for?
453  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is it too early to give up on the 360 for Christmas? on: December 08, 2005, 07:47:31 PM
I just removed the stuff I didn't want from the basket before I placed the order

I thought about that but was paranoid it would cause an issue with the order.I figured Id only have one shot to order it. Plus, I was just sick of looking for one of the damn things.
454  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is it too early to give up on the 360 for Christmas? on: December 08, 2005, 07:26:26 PM
I was thinking about trying to exchange a couple of the games for call of duty 2 and cash. Good to know it can be done. Thanks for the info!!  biggrin
455  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is it too early to give up on the 360 for Christmas? on: December 08, 2005, 03:55:32 PM
Not too late I dont think. I managed to get one at Circuit City's web site this morning. Of course, you had to buy the bundle and it really didnt have the greatest selection of games for me. Im just hoping it actually ships. I had waited in line lauch day and came up 3 people short of getting one and my computer crashed the last time Circuit City had them available. I was about to give up too. Keep looking and use one of the online sites that keeps tabs on inventory for several retailers. The other option is of course, another long wait on the 18th at Best Buy.  Good luck.
456  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / It's official. Everyone hates the French..... on: June 06, 2005, 01:48:09 AM
Quote from: "unbreakable"

I feel sorry for you.  I love America so much that it hurts to see it turn into a fourth reich.  

Isn't there a rule that if you compare something to the 3rd Reich, you lose the debate.  Not that I agree with everything George Bush does but thats a tad extreme dont you think?
457  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Soldiers: Heroes of World War II (PC) -- $2.99 at EB on: April 18, 2005, 01:45:26 AM
I picked up Soldiers this weekend at a local EB for $6.99. It was marked $19.99 but I asked the guy if they price matched their website. He said they do but it would probably ring up at $6.99 anyway.  He charged me the $6.99 but didnt say if it actually rang up at that price or if he price matched it.  Heck of a deal. He did try and get me to buy the replacement warranty which I declined.  smile To his credit, he didnt try and sell it too hard. Kind of a going through the motions sort of thing I suppose.
458  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PSP online on: March 31, 2005, 06:55:31 PM
The only one Im sure that has multiplayer now is Twisted Metal. There may be others.  I was disappointed that Wipeout didnt have true internet multiplayer.  Guess I should have researched that better. Im not sure that it will ever have it or not.  Still a great game and the system is pretty cool.
459  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Anarchy Online now free on: December 17, 2004, 02:14:17 AM
Has anyone managed to get this downloaded from their website? I was getting a download error and now bit torrent shows a download time of over 600 hours with a transfer rate of  0 kb.  Broken download?
460  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is this starting to feel like GG? on: October 15, 2004, 01:51:20 AM
Starting to feel like it  to me as well. Big thanks to the Console Gold folks for easing the pain of losing Gone Gold.
