That him going this far our further would damage the show's credibility in America.

The show has credibility?? Even if I liked pop music, I wouldn't turn to a remake of the Gong Show to find the latest and greatest.

Wonderpugs post makes me want to vote, how much does it cost?

Yeah, yeah, yeah. He does have some very good points though.

I agree with Wonderpug, he has 3 good points. None of which have convinced me I want a PS3 yet. I will buy one, but nothing has pushed me over the edge.

I don't watch AI. Everyone who has gotten famous through that show I would rather be deaf and blind rather than listen to or watch.

I was swapping channles tonight and saw the guy in question. UGH, kill me now.

It's easy to fight the forum effect when the demo didn't seem that great and the mainstream reviews don't seem to like it too much so far. smile

Everyone I know who does the puzzles (we do them at work a lot) can solve the 5 stars from USA Today. We race.

I would say the real reason people like them is that they are pretty easy. Sure some can take some work, but most are pretty easy to do.

If you have a mid-season slot open, there's an opening in the excellent F1 07 Rookie Training Game.

Go to the forums, and look for it under private games-drives available.

Just sent him a PM.

Getting frustrated with the lack of participation in public games. Lots of people go AWOL. My partner on my Williams 2007 team disappeared and it's hurting me bad. Hopefully he gets kicked soon since he hasn't done any car settings yet.

You are new to the game? Best bet is to read the tutorial. The ask your teammate lots of questions. It took me about 1/2 a season to semi get it. I am still learning.

I am in 2 public 2007 races and the car comparison shows Ferrari as incredibly fast in 2007. Red Bull the slowest. Ironically Red Bull took the pole in Australia in one of those public games. I was very happy to qualify 8th in my Toro Rosso.

So anyway, pr0ner and I should kick serious ass with Ferrari. biggrin (Knock on wood.) In reality, I just hope we keep in contention for the Constructors.

Edit: Hope it's not a problem that I am playing two other 2007 seasons. I am not playing Ferrari in either of them (Williams and Toro Rosso). I picked Ferrari here because I am a fan, not because of their speed, although that is nice.

Edit 2: Batracer got the colors wrong, just looked at pics, its a dark blue now.

I find myself messing up moves quite a bit due to the cramped space. I think they could have done something differently to make it easier to move things around. Also, it seems that the monsters level with you. Is that correct?

Where did you get it from? A B&M store?

I've been unable to confirm that the game has even been shipped to my store, via overnight or ground. Given the fact that I specifically requested the title and supposedly had over half a dozen copies earmarked for my store, it could be that it hasn't shipped to any GS/EB stores yet.

Hmm, well if they don't have it tomorrow I will just order online. Sucks because I want to play more, but I am done with the demo.

Thanks for the info Misguided.

In, would like Ferrari, just because they're my favorite team.

I didn't have a teammate as Ferrari in our OO game, is it going to be a problem passing car info when I can only access the game in the evening? Unless you have Kool Tools you have to email car settings, right?
2910  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: I will never eat Indian food again. on: March 21, 2007, 08:32:38 PM

Quote from: Kobra on March 21, 2007, 04:24:49 PM

I haven't ever tried Indian food, but man do people talk about it a lot.  We got a ton of well rated indian joints around here, I should try it I guess. I love Curry/Turmeric.

Whats a good Indian dish for a "Noob" to indian food to try that isn't too obnoxious?

Just for your info, Indian food isn't made with curry powder, thats for Chinese food or really bad Indian curries. Most indian curries are made of cumin, coriander, ground chilies and then an assortment of other spices such as turmeric or cardamoms. Also large amounts of onions are used (the sauce is made of up of minced onions in almost every curry).

For a newbie get something like a Dopiaza (means double onion), rogan josh (spiced lamb in a tomato sauce), or tika masala (grilled chicken in a curry sauce). Almost all Indian places in the states will make it as hot or as mild as you want. You can get Vindaloo (meat with potatoes) which is popular but it and Madras are supposed to be hot. Saag is meat with spinach and also great. If you don't like spicy, go with buttered chicken, tandoori, korai, or tika (tandoori and tika are not curries but grilled meats). No matter what you have, get some naan to mop up the sauce. Personally I never order tandoori as a main, it's always a starter.

Stay from buffets unless a lot of Indians eat there. I complained at one place because the food was so tasteless and they told me they had to dumb it down for American tastes. "American's don't like spicy" he told me. Also in my experience stay away from an Indian restaurant that has beef on the menu but not lamb. Indians use lamb, not beef.

I grew up on English Indian food, probably the best place to get Indian in the world. smile I heard the curries we get in the West are quite different than anything you will see in India (but I guess that goes with all ethnic food). Also if anyone is interested in some good curry recipes, go to The Curry House, I make this guys recipes about twice a week and I have never found better home made recipes that are as good as the restaurants.

Quote from: Ridah on March 21, 2007, 07:58:39 PM

I don't think anyone seriously expected the 360 to perform well in Japan. Even if it had more games like Blue Dragon being released on a regular basis, the Japanese obviously prefer their own shit whether it's better or not.

I just don't think that is true. Japanese gaming tastes are vastly different than North Americas, and neither Xbox had many of those kind of games out. When Blue Dragon came out it did sell systems over there, they just need more of those kind of games more often if they want to do well.

Bah, why did I bother trying to get this at a b&m store at lunch.  They were just finishing unpacking the DS/GBA boxes that arrived, and "Puzzle Quest?" was only good for blank stares.

Hehe that's what I am scared of. My local EB has never offered to go through boxes for me, they always tell me to come back, so I will wait an hour or two more before I head down there. I wonder if Target will carry it, they seem to be quite good for new releases.
