15761  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / More DS Reviews! on: June 08, 2006, 10:06:23 PM
Your DS reviews are coming up short?  :shock:

I wish I could afford a DS. Someone took my lunch munny, now mommy won't let me have one. frown (actually, I just bought a Monster Power HTS 5100 MKII for 240USD ... no toys for me until after summer, with exception to a game or two).

Download manager will stop downloads when switching users, and autostart when you switch back.

I downloaded something called Hero Football (IIRC) from the Japanese side of the Live marketplace. Still no Live release of the N3 demo. frown

I'm impressed. biggrin

+1 to Microsoft for fixing problems...

now if only there was some way to get FFXI off the hard drive without the disk frown


Once I uninstall my copy I could send you my disk Purge.


I appreciate that, man. I'm still going to play FFXI, just not on the 360. It's better on a PC.

If that looks like a guy to you... wait, I think it's been said!

As to implants, unlikely. I've spent the last few minutes "examining" them; I don't believe their implants at all. There WAS that news article two weeks ago claiming that asian women have been growing larger boobs in the last few years. smile Let's hope the trend continues.

15770  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Windows Vista - 40 page preview on: June 03, 2006, 12:35:42 PM
the preview was pathetic. It covered more about things like windows games (yuck) than it did on control panels and basic interface.

For one, you can now see your drive performance from the manage system option ( it runs an io test and you get to see drive performance). I've only played with the 32bit for an hour or two.. MAYBE.

500 hours? Unlikely.

"Troops: stop, drop altitute, reverse direction and speed up!"

I'm running it; it's nice. The difference between beta2 of XP and RC2 is significant; I expect the final product to be different as well. This OS should run faster and smoother, and take advantage of multi-core processors (such as mine). It would be nice if they could have integrated 32bit architecture into the 64bit  version; I only have the 32bit version installed right now. I'll be getting the 64bit version sometime next week and I'll post my findings.

(We have TechNet enterprise at work; this gives us beta versions to play with).

If you guys want a taste of the IE version, go to www.microsoft.com/ie and install the 7.0 beta 2. It's nice, and I've had almost no issue with site compatibility.

On page 7 they talk about protected mode; this does not exist for the IE7 beta on XP... this may be one of the BIG reasons Vista is being rolled out. It seems small, but it's quite significant. Also note that the local zone does NOT have protected mode.

So are you implying that pubs may not have been dropping Starforce because of user complaint, but instead due to a ramp of publicity and MS wanting to get titles onto Vista?

*thinks about it*  Argh..the timing is just so wrong all of a sudden for these little bits of news.  ITS A GLOBAL CONSPIRACY TO KEEP RUSSIA FROM MAKING MORE TETRIS TITLES!!!!!

SPIDERMAN 3 Movie fails to pull Sony out of Debt; PS3 to blame for fiscal loss.

Sony drops 2007 Q2 earnings estimate by nearly 40%.

Nintendo Licenses DEVIL to run PR campaign; Mario bathing in Money commercials on the horizon.

Microsoft licenses Dildolectronic devices; Rumble Roses XXX to use new "innerface"

Team Ninja follows Sony path : DOA Extreme 3 to scrap vibration in new dual semi-hemispherical Silicone control gel pads. "Vibration is exactly what we expect game players to bring to the competition" says founder.

15777  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Pics of 360 dashboard update on: June 01, 2006, 03:05:34 PM
It was listed (last week) as scheduled for spring 2006, which means they have another 3 weeks to release it.

I'm betting it will come in the next two weeks.

The update in the fall speaks to the new camera and added functionality; I'm thinking september, and the next one will be feb for the Vista interconnectivity.

Don't worry... worms aren't that bad.


I dunno, Worms 3D wasn't all that spectacular.

That reminds me, my parent's neighbors kid knew I was into video games, and so he'd always ask me " Do you haff wermth?".I'd say stuff like "Not this week; I just got my prescription filled!"

He was 6; it confused the hell out of him. :lol:

And I love puppies, and their pictures. I don't think Dafones was laughing at the situation there sparhawk; he was commenting on the pic.

As to the worms, I wouldn't worry to much about it; let the vet take care of it.

I know what you mean about seeing jewels with your eyes closed.  That happened to me a ton when I was playing that.  Now I see little colored balls due to my Zuma obsession.  :shock:


So you're pretty much a drooling vegetable when you see all those colored balls in the McDonalds Playland gyms? Or do you dive in and start whipping them at their own colors as quickly as possible screaming "STAY AWAY FROM MY HOLE OF DOOOM!!!"?

Call her up and tell her you want to take her out to lunch.  Pack a picnic, pick her up and drive to Multnomah Falls.  Eat lunch at the top and on the way back down stop at the bridge and ask to take a picture.  Then tell her how pretty she looks, and you are almost guaranteed a kiss.  It sounds super cheesy, but I promise it will work.


OMG I'd be all over that!

Tease her a bit on safe stuff (like if she's in excellent shape don't be afraid to tell her to stay away from the cheesecake, clearly it's getting to her)... take her out of her comfort zone, and this makes her attracted to you. Don't go for the cutesy hand-holding unless it's appropriate.

Do some wining and dining, take her out to a club and get her going. Don't go to one club and hang there; catch a few dances, and maybe go do something more intimate.

Stimulate her; if you stay static or seem unsure of yourself you'll fall into the "friend" role. It's the way it goes, it would seem.

Don't ask me why. It works. :: shrug ::

15793  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is this a TV, DVD Player or DVD Problem? on: May 29, 2006, 03:40:56 PM
My first reaction was to think "Macrovision" on VHS. If that's not the case, I'd suggest running the outputs into a stereo and see if you have the same problem. If so it looks like it's either a DVD/config issue or a connection.

I am assuming you've tried several DVDs on this, right?

(also, shouldn't this thread be in the hardware / software hell ? )

I can tell you this: the story is about the war between humans and goblins. There is an event that happens where the world is cast into ninty-nine nights, and whomever is victorious will reign supreme.

N3 was released in Japan in late april and it got a 9,9,8,9 (IIRC) from Famitsu magazine.

In canada it's not-so-long ... but I've got some Black & White 2, replaying Half-Life 2 and Age of Empires 3.

I am also looking into getting more achievements in Dynasty Warriors 5 : Empires, Amped 3 and Oblivion. If I have time... gotta 'till the garden, get some plumbing stuff done and wax philosophical with a buddy of mine on the new Dr. Who episodes.

Oh, and keep the girlfriend happy while writing a registered letter to my soon-to-be-ex as I look for a decent family law lawyer to file the divorce.
