Supposedly, Ridah, 720p and 1080i are just about the same, while 1080p is a step up.

LOL, rereading my original post it dosen't make much sense now. Cool thanks KD.

I always do smile for a happy face, as it's the standard in most places from Word to MSN messenger. Any way we could get it so that the smile code would work too? No biggie if not, just curious.

Don't worry, your current 360 will more than likely be dead before years end. smile

I don't know if it's fair to be too harsh on MS, they took a chance to be first, while Sony had time to see what they were doing and 1 up them. Who knew 1080p would be the big thing when the 360 was released? I didn't, all the TVs were 720p. And HD-DVD/Blu-Ray weren't released yet.

When I read his posts, my thoughts are, I would like to date her if I was single, she needs a nice guy.  Tongue

Nah, she sounds too needy to me. I like a girl I can get some space from occasionally, and wouldn't want to get in a fight every time I expressed it.
2526  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Not spending enough time with her? on: January 13, 2007, 03:45:16 PM
I love girls who will hang with the guys, if she started crying instead of coming along I think I would get pretty pissed about it myself. The relationship wouldn't last long.

Ridah you sound too young to be in a serious relationship. I think a lot of the advice here is from guys much older who are settled down. That's not you. Dump her and do what you want to do.

Probably some Advanced Wars DS and Metroid pinball since ATB's and Unbreakable's threads made me want to give them another go.

I Tivo'd FoxNews whilst I was watching MSNBC so I could go back for laughs...

FoxNews comes on after the "Speech", ignores the dems response (hell, they don't even SHOW it!), has on that idiot McCain that looks like he a deer caught in the headlights of an onrushing truck.  Next, FoxNews has the friggen audacity to compare Bush to LINCOLN... LINCOLN!!!

Holy shit.

Yeah, we have Fox News on all day at work.  It's embarrassing, my co-workers say that CNN is biased, but it is no where near as blatant as Fox. They don't even make an effort to hide it.

I am not sure how denying funding will stop it. If they cut the military budget, they will just cut back on other things, not the troops going there.
2534  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Vista bad for gaming on: January 11, 2007, 12:51:24 AM
Only read good stuff about Vista, that's why I was surprised on the GT news article. Been running Vista Beta myself and I like it.

Been a day 1 adopter of every major MS home OS, and never had a problem.

Hmm what is wrong with me? I didn't get really into it, and don't have a good reason why. I am enjoying Alien Crush on VC though.
2536  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Really Great Idea: Mario Casino on: January 11, 2007, 12:34:49 AM
I think it would be a pretty neat idea. I am a sucker for casino games done right, which are very rare. QQP used to have one that I loved, but it was pretty bug ridden and the company went under before they every finished it.

This reminds me of GG. As it grew you got a greater variety of people, and more clashes. Maybe the same thing is happening here?

I thought everything had died down, and we had pretty much gotten over the PS3/360/Wii thing. There are still problems?
2541  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Vista bad for gaming on: January 10, 2007, 05:08:26 AM
Just wanted to comment on the news article.

WildTangent from what I know is a source of adware/spyware and only really has one game that got them any respect, Fate. So for them to say that Vista will be bad for downloading games, I take it with a grain of salt.

Kakuro uses simple addition - give that a try, if you're so inclined

Also known as Cross Sums in paper magazines. My all time favorite puzzles, but I have yet to find a decent computer rendering. The one you link to, the puzzles are way too small.

Aren't all old movies all kind of pointless on BR/HD-DVD? Are they ever going to look better than what they do on current DVD?

Ignoring wouldn't have fixed the -LE- problem.  If anything, it would have made it worse.  -LE-, in all liklihood, would have worn that "ignored by" profile as a badge of honor. 

That's how I take it. Kobra ignoring me is priceless. smile

I would ignore you, but I am too lazy to switch to white to do it. icon_wink

5. Have an option to bypass the safety warning on every boot up.  Good golly.  Please let me toggle it off.

I really do hate that.

My biggest complaint is I get hand cramps way too easy with it. Especially with action games. I just can't play it for long periods of time. I guess they can't really fix that though without making it bigger.

I know! I find this insanely amusing, I just go down the line clicking on profiles to see how many people are ignoring them. Somehow I don't think that was the intention.

I am a little surprised at some of the people who do have people ignoring them. I mean what did ATB ever do to anyone?

Boy, I didn't see that punchline coming.  Nope, not in a million years.

Hehe, yeah I knew coming into this thread it would finish about how great Costco is.

The store manager wasn't be a dick Kobra, he was doing his job by following store policy. People could use such a liberal return policy to make money, so I would suspect a lot of retailers won't do it.

I return something maybe once a year, so I never really care about return policies, as long as they have one.

I got this about 3 weeks ago and still haven't installed it.  Is the game ripe for play yet or should I wait for further patches?  I hate starting an in-depth game, and then having a patch come in 1/2-way through.  Because I always restart full games when a patch is released... it's on OCD thing.

Everything I have read said it's buggy as hell (Kobra seems to be the only person who likes it on the forums I read). If the first one is any indication, there will never be a patch that fixes it.

I never ever felt overwhelmed in it myself. Theres some great guides on the official forums, I highly recommend them.   I thought it was pretty streamlined and refined myself - at least compared to most city builders.

It is very streamlined, and well done, don't get me wrong. I just can't get into it. I really want a pause and work command, without it, it feels too much like a RTS to me. I tried to go into the playground to learn everything, but they strip so much of the actual game mechanics out of it, there wasn't any point.

But I got bored with Caesar IV very quickly too, I guess I find dealing with modern cities more interesting. I am burned out on the whole chain of industries thing.

I switched over to white just to see it. Once you go black, you can't go back though. It is quite large though.
