She's definately a "country girl"...

you know... wrap the flag around her head and do 'er for your country.  :twisted:

I dunno about this whole puritan "kids can see death, but OH MY GOD IS THAT A NIPPLE?!!!" mentality. I can see her point; she's saying "You want steam, and I've got to wear MORE clothing?"
16602  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Small claims court worth it? Need advice. on: July 14, 2005, 02:45:46 AM
You could also go to Mitsubishi Corp. and get them to investigate to see if a warranty claim came in on your VIN. I don't think they're allowed to hide that info from you. You may even be up to chase down Mits as this is an authorized warranty shop. I'd check to see how the corp will handle it, 650 is a pittance to having their name dragged through the mud, and when arguably it isn't their 650 to begin with.
16603  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / No More Analog TV in 2009 on: July 14, 2005, 02:42:08 AM
Actually, I think they will stick to that date, and for this reason :

They can sell the freed up low frequency band (this is the good stuff, it travels through walls, whereas the high-band has problems) to major corporations for BIG MONEY. They'z all like : suck it up, America. Get DTV (Digital TV, not the same as HDTV). All your satellite is DTV. Any newer channels added to your cable provider is DTV. For instance, if I want to get the latest "Frogs having sex with paper towels" channel, it is only available on "Shaw Digital" meaning I need a DTV converter.


mmmm... bounty....

Yeah. Uhm, lets look at Pearl Harbor. Here's a movie about massive explosions. You'd think Bay could get that right. Let's take a look at some footage :

<camera cuts to dog barfing up another dogs feces>

I think Affleck was really convincing in that role. And the love story, the heartache, the drama.

This, SPECIFICALLY, is why mankind needs to take the directors bull-horn from Bay and pass it on to another worthy candidate. Like the Olsen twins, or S. Segal.

IF the states were to have a colonoscopy applied, Houston is where they'd insert the tube? I hear it can get "moist" in said region.

Not saying Houston IS that region, it's just a possibility. I'd say it's more likely to insert said tube in New Jersey. slywink

Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas
Impulse purchase, I don't even like the franchise. :: sigh ::

Crimson Sea
Great game for those looking for a futuristic alternate to Dynasty Warriors fighting games. It's also more RPG-Lite. Horrid use of the Xbox hardware though, and the controls take some getting used to.

Phantom Dust
Love this game, but the savegames are locked (can't back em up). I had a ton of stuff, and then had to send my Xbox in. :: sob :: I am NOT going through that addictive game again. Highly recommended for addicts. slywink

MechAssault
Came in a happy meal with LIVE content. No case, just the disk.biggrin

Ninja Gaiden
Same reason as Phantom Dust; I'm not going through that game again. I had the goddamned wooden sword and everything maxxed. If you buy it I'll hand over an "easy money" strategy for ya to be able to afford it.


What I'm looking for:
Conker: Live and Reloaded
Battlefield 2

meh. Not much else, and I'm not really jonesin' for those two either. I'm waiting for the next-gen systems, so I'm avoiding buying anything new.
16620  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / how was King's Field for PS2? on: July 11, 2005, 12:59:25 AM
Never played the PS2 or the PS sequel, only the first  Kings Field. I loved that game.

The PS2 game, found here on gamerankings, didn't score so well.

a) 54% ranking
b) only one in the 90% margin
c) it's from 2002 (first gen PS2 title)

I'd say you're looking at a game worth a try if you're getting it for almost nothing.
16621  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Your vote for Baddest Living Mofo on: July 10, 2005, 04:43:19 PM
I dunno guys... I mean, the guy who cut his arm off is impressive, but not ONE episode goes by, not a ONE, where Spongebob does the exact same arm-removal thing. Seriously, he's got a hell of a survival instinct. Bad-ass? No.

For living badasses (not necesarily fighters, but just people who emanate the "That better be respect in your eyes" kind of aura, I'd have to say Vin Diesel is a hell of a lot closer than the UFC/Pride fighters (IMHO). I mean, the guy isn't even beating the crap outta people and he gets that. The Rock would be up there, and so would Russell Crowe (even though I hate the guy).

My pick would come from this photo... take the left or the right. Sam was awesome in Lean on Me; Big Mike is a daunting guy. Two very different reasons.



Posthumusly, I'd give it to the man; that size and strength stands him head and shoulders over anyone I'd be afraid of in a dark alley.


But frankly, the guy who scares the bejezus outta me most is this guy :

Trying to explain to me that this movie is enjoyable, after I saw the trailer, would be like trying to explain how gravity pulls up.


Gravity doesn't pull up or down. That's just your perspective. Gravity is a force that is created mass displacement. Lets say the planet is a set of giant underpants, and your house was just south of the "pocket region" (guys, you know which pocket I'm talking about.. the one to hold your keys, or the baked potato you were saving till later slywink ). From the planet-size-plus wearer of said gitch, gravity was pulling you UP into them.

Now go watch FF. slywink


BTW. The property value of your house sucks, partly cuz it's in a swamp, but mostly cuz it's right near the "skidmarked landing strips". :: shudder ::

As I understood it (way back when) the game *is* more random than Diablo2, but the maps themselves may not be.

I dunno though, I'm having a hard time remembering Diablo 2.

Quote from: "Dafones"
I always thought a younger Alec Baldwin would have made an awesome Batman.


I now think he is the best guy to ever play the role. I still stick to my original, and wildly unpopular feeling that Val Kilmer was the second best batman. He just captured the odd haunted feeling that Bruce Wayne should have and did a good job in the Batsuit.


I'd definately agree with you on that. I found Clooney to be wooden and devoid of any passion as Bruce. For instance, the scene where he finds out Alfred is dying, he's got a half-smile that doesn't exactly scream "stressed out". He was probably thinking of his paycheck in that shot.

Guys, I gotta apologize for the comment but...

"Is NOTHING Sacred??" (a line from the bushy-eyed Avatar Warning is toting around) Speaking of avatars: Unbreakable... KMFDM fan, are ya? slywink

So Sacred seemed to have it's repetitive nature, but I've killed 200+ hours on Dynasty Warriors games. I don't know that repetition is bad. I mean, how much of my life was wasted in Counter-Strike (for PC)?

As to Diablo 2, I was a bigger fan of 1. I liked the skilltree in D2 though. I'm anxiously awaiting Dungeon Siege 2 which looks significantly better than #1.

I've not tried FATE yet, I may just have to give that a spin.

There was this demo from a german game maker that was awesome.

You could get mounts, pets, and there was 150000000 different items and powerups. The demo let you chase down quests between 3 towns.. I can't recall the name for the life of me, and I *really* wanted to buy the full version. I dunno if it was Divine divinity or something.

Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Oh, one unique thing was they had back armor where it looked like six tubes with fire/plasma sticking out.

but it is medival. don't ask. slywink

I second Kung Fu Chaos, however the multiplayer is more of a "party game" than co-op.

Dynasty Warriors 4 is a damned fine beat-em up co-op game.
Also, Brute force is a co-op game up to 4 players. IIRC, others can join and leave on the fly.

Where it died for me was the 20 minute epilogue following him praying to the Blue Fairy, which is where it should have ended.


Yeah, well.. Spielberg loves his bookends. Kubrick probably flipped once or twice during the premiere.

Movies I've walked out on ... hrm... that's tough. I won a "free movies for a year" pass so I walked out of a lot of crap with no financial hit.

I almost walked out of Deep Blue Sea, until I started having fun with making fun of it. Stuff like a 4 ton mako shark (with a cartilage skull) bashing in a titanium reinforced wall about a mile below sea level... you know, with the rivets popping out. Cuz I read somewhere that blood is thicker than water, and gelatinous compounds beat out pressure-titanium EVERY GODDAMNED DAY OF THE WEEK. Or this same CGI shark swimming down a 4ft wide hallway, or being able to get it's mouth above waterline in 3 feet of water. Ooo, and the pathetic excuse for an underwear shot, or the stabbed eye/no stabbed eye/stabbed eye scene at the end. When a movie proposes to be "REAL, with the only thing different is that the sharks have bigger brains" and then shit like the helicopter being dragged into a building by a shark, they swim backwards, knowing what a camera is, leaping out of a pool, snatching Sam Jackson from the TOP, and jack-knifing back into the water, etc etc.. I've got a 30 min diatribe on why the people responsible should be shot. Frankly, I think Renny Harlin's direction of "Cliffhanger" was a fluke. Mindhunters? Please.

The only good thing about the movie is some awesome one-liners. But they appear like tiny, tasty meatballs in a rancid pile of spaghetti, liberally covered in sulpher and banana-flavored yogurt.
