Hey now.  I checked in every day.   Tongue

I know, I didn't mean you, I meant just about every public game I am in.

And congrats pr0ner! Excellent season.

Wow, that's amazing how quickly he lost control.

Anyway, up for another game. I only ask that my partner be willing to check in every day. I am so sick of getting team mates who check in every few days.

USPS money orders are fully trackable, but it's a slow process. I don't see why this bank would be any different.

I just bought my first ring tone. It didn't say anything about it lasting only so many months. Verizon, paid $3 for it.

Curse you, you consumer whore!  You've damned us all!  Damned us all to hell!!  slywink

Well one thing I quickly learned about my new phone, the included ring tones are horrible, I had to get something better. Last time I bought a phone (3 years ago), it had tons of tones, guess they don't do that anymore.

I forgot to post again, but after looking into it a bit, it looked like the funds from Money Orders are secured by the US Postal Service.

I would contact the postal inspection service and see what they can do.  Because first of all, this is mail fraud, which is nothing to sneeze at.  Then, if he committed any kind of fraud with the money order, there is that.

That's only if you bought a USPS money order.

Also, never trust USPS. In this case it wouldn't matter because the guy claims he got the envelope, but if you are going to mail money I highly recommend certified with return receipt or, better yet, registered mail.
2649  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: POLL: Did the GHII patch mess up your 360? on: April 25, 2007, 07:33:01 PM

Yep, 15 in so far. 16 min 30 max.

And Kool Tools is worth it IMO if you like the game.

Skies of Arcadia for the GameCube might be right up your ally.

While I normally wouldn't trust Gellar at all with RPG advice, I think he is right on here. SOA might be exactly what you are looking for.

Just be warned, it's a combat every 5' game. I really liked it, but got burnt out on the constant fighting.

I really liked Enchanted Arms on the 360. Sure it's corny, but the combat is different/neat and I enjoyed the storyline.

TJG_Marantz over at OO posted a private A1GP game. Looks pretty interesting. No teams. We've got 13 people so far, need at least 16.

Game, password monkey.

It took me a minute, but since it is called Forgiveness I took it to mean the guy killed someone.

Feel free to narrowly define Christians as anti-gay bigots if you'd like.  Or you could, you know, research and find that you are probably just as guilty of stereotyping as the people you are accusing.

And I am ok with that, I like to give Christians some of the shit back that I get everyday. We like to be politically correct on the forums, but my real life experience are far from what I see here. I respect a lot of Christians, I would love to meet more Grunds, Griffmans, and Austins in real life, but a lot of the Christians I meet scare me. Just Thursday someone left a card on my windshield entitled "Forgivness". It has a guy, passed out carrying a hammer with Jesus behind him holding him. There is a stream of blood going between the guys legs. That's nuts in my book.

Anyway, pretty much every Christian I know thinks, gays, atheists, etc are going to hell. To me that is saying they are better than me. I need to be tormented for eternity just because I don't believe while you get to go have the good life in Heaven just because you believe? You can be the biggest scumball on the planet, but just because you believe you are entitled to some perfect world when you die? Fuck that.

It should go without saying that they do not represent the Christian faith at all. 

Maybe not, but they do say things many Christians think I bet.

Ah...

Fuck.



Well it was an incredibly stupid and ignorant thing to say.  I think that's self evident though so I won't bite further.

How so? I talk to a lot of Christians everyday, and they say far more ignorant things than I just did. Heck I hear about how Iraq/iran should be nuked daily.

I am not talking so much about everyday Christians, the ones that are about as Christian as I am. The devout guys, the ones that are pretty hard core. They do not like gay people, they think its a sin. They fear that gays being married some how affects their marriage. They don't want to be around gay people, and think that if they just found god and went to counseling that they could be straight. I have heard Christian males who really think AIDS is a punishment from god. Sure they don't go around and say "God hates faggots" but they think and say that gays are going to hell unless they change their ways. God obviously doesn't love them if he is going to punish them for eternity for their sexual preference.

On these forums we like to pretend that Christians are easy going people who mind their own business. It's just not the case in the world I live in. They are usually the bigots, not the atheists.

The actual truth is that I can't cook at all so watching the food network to me makes about as much sense as watching the travel channel.

Your logic doesn't make any sense there. If you can't cook, wouldn't it make more sense to watch the channel (assuming you wanted to learn)? If I was a chef that didn't need recipes I wouldn't watch it, but as someone who is always learning the shows can be quite helpful.

And I don't find Giada that attractive. She always comes across as some rich snobby NJ woman to me.

Yeah the manual is in other languages. Game me a pause when I first picked it up.

Really enjoying it so far, but I had one puzzle kick my ass for 10 mintues, and then it was completely obvious when I finally figured it out. Too much beer I guess.

Not that I turn my Wii on much anymore, but I did for Paper Mario, and I found I really enjoy the channels when taking a little break. Check the weather, the news, take some polls, and check some web pages. As others have said, Opera is much improved. Much easier to use.

Picked it up at Target today.

So far I agree with everyone else. Intro is too long. Graphics are a bit sparse. Fun game. I like the idea of a RPG platform, and so far it seems to work.
2670  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [Wii] Super Paper Mario Impressions on: April 11, 2007, 06:29:46 AM
Why bother calling them? Target and Walmart are a day later on new releases, if that, and they don't sell opened games as new or hassle me.

I know there are probably some great EB/GS out there with managers who really love gaming, but I just can't support their store.

"You People" is the simplest thing you can say to make African Americans extremely angry these days.

I work with a black girl who is always saying "You people", while usually not referring to white people, but it's become the shop joke now and we all say it.

Anyway, I hate Imus, but I don't see the big deal. He's a shock jock trying to be funny. As Howard Stern said, he should just say fuck it and move on.

I pretty much suck everything, especially action games. I played Gears of War with friends, and no one wanted me on their team. I was lucky to get a kill and the person I did kill got made fun of for it. Guitar Hero 2? Lowest rating on every song of all my friends. It's actually embarrassing, and I don't have the patience to ever get good at most games, so I wonder why I game at all.

I am ok at RPGs, wargames etc, but as I get older I am less likely to want to spend the time to learn them.
2676  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360] Guitar Hero II on: April 04, 2007, 02:23:06 AM
Did an impulse buy despite my issues with my left hand (I have a disability that I mentioned much earlier in this thread). Game is a blast. I only quit because my hand was hurting. I can't see getting past medium because I can only really play with 2 fingers, but I can do it on easy, just some songs are tricky.

I tried switching over to left handed, but it didn't feel natural and I did even worse.

I was the opposite, I sold my PSP because I liked my DS so much better. I am too old to worry about if a game is too kiddy or not, if its fun, I will play it.

But, some of the games coming out for the PSP this year may get me to buy another one if those games get solid reviews.

Of course the gay character is barely in the game (at least in that incarnation). Also I didn't find the dialog any worse than any other JRPG, they are all hideous IMO.

Really enjoyed it as far a JRPGs go. The combat was very original and fun.
