It's been a in the mid 70s for a week here now, I took advantage a few times and went swimming, laid out in the sun a few times. Otherwise, I've been a hermit.

I didn't get to say thanks for the welcome way back when, so here it is!

4524  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: IGN's Blue Dragon review on: August 16, 2007, 09:22:27 PM
I'm still highly interested in this one, I mean frankly a lot of RPGs are a quite ho-hum in the story department anyhow so if the characters can do a decent job of drawing me in, I don't think I'll mind playing through and exploring the world.

I haven't seen anyone mention diet, which is a vital part to losing or gaining weight.

Just wanted to add, I hold no personal grudges against ya, we can still discuss gaming without any animosity or resentment =)
4527  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: School me on marriage on: August 15, 2007, 03:18:14 AM
I was agreeing with some of Gellar's points until I read this:
"Other than that, all of the things you think are exclusive to fatherhood, I'm pretty sure I get with my nephews, my dog, and my friends."

That's got to be one of the most ignorant and shallow things I've ever heard. You basically took a shit on anyone who has raised or is raising a son or daughter. I'm sorry Gellar, but you didn't create this thread looking for answers, you came in here looking for the few individuals who were going to reinforce your point of view on life. Your 26 years old with a girlfriend bro, what do you or anyone at your age and situation know anything about the fulfillment of being a parent?

For the most part, I agree with what your saying. I'm 23 and I have no plans any time soon to get married, not because I feel like marriage is a curse but because I want to be financially and mentally prepared. At the same age my dad was married and my mom was pregnant, and he's given his life to support his children and family. The only thing he cares about in life is taking care of his family. While under the pressure of supporting his own family, along with the pressure of supporting most of his family back home, he's become a millionare. I have no respect for anyone who would belittle the hard work and sacrifice my parents have made to raise me and my siblings right.

4529  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / How can I become a restaurant server? on: August 13, 2007, 05:03:37 PM
This sounds like the dumbest question ever, but I'm in desperate need of a part-time job that pays better than retail's average hourly rates and being a server seems like the perfect job to have while in school. I have no experience as a server though, and any restaurant I have been interested in applying to will not accept an inexperienced server. Is there some trick to this? Any advice?

Thank goodness for auto shutdown.  I'm just leaving my system on overnight until it downloads.  Hopefully it'll be ready tomorrow morning, or after work.

Or by the time the game releases? slywink

You have to get his permission.  If you go behind his back, well, then you're going behind his back.  Sorry, but that's the rule.

Also, no girl gets over a 3 year relationship in a week.  My understanding is that it takes girls half the relationship's length to get over a  relationship.  If you don't mind being the rebound guy, then enjoy the sex.  But you're dumpsville within two weeks.

Btw, that commercial is ROFL funny.

I just want to be her booty call, is that too much to ask!?!
4532  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Do I tell her? on: August 12, 2007, 09:37:36 PM
The haircut girl lives with her family out of state now, technically we haven't broken up but we haven't quite talked about it too much. I think we both plan to move on, but neither of us wants to be the one to say its over.
4533  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Whoa! ...BFG.....sweetness on replacement card on: August 12, 2007, 05:50:41 PM
Wow, I have the exact same video card that doesn't work. My only problem is that I don't have the original receipt. I bought it from Fry's, and they told me they could take a screenshot of the purchase and print it for me. It would be worth it if I could get an upgraded video card.
4534  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gmail.... the scammer's email service of choice? on: August 12, 2007, 04:15:05 AM
I don't know about spam, I'm just wondering why these people who are out to scam other people use Gmail in particular.
4535  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What's the rule on seeing your friend's ex-girlfriend? on: August 12, 2007, 04:11:11 AM
Yeah see my main concern here is that it happened only a week ago. He broke up with her and is already seeing someone else, but still I feel like waiting a few months at least is the smarter thing to do. And yes, he's my best friend, not just someone I see every so often. Yeah, I'm going to forget about her for a while, it's definately the safer route.
4536  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Gmail.... the scammer's email service of choice? on: August 11, 2007, 06:45:33 PM
I've been trying to sell a few things on Craigslist the past week, a laptop and a desktop. Whenever I receive an email from someone who is interested in the item, there is this advisory warning about scams on Craigslist and whatnot. Basically, anyone who wants you to ship the item, and pay you via money gram, money order, etc. is trying to scam you, according to the advisory. I believe it too, because many of the emails that I get from people wanting me to ship them the item and pay any other way besides cash, all have similar emails. They get personal, I've had one saying the buyer is a grandmother who wants to buy the laptop for her grand daughter who has a grudge against her, and so on. However, the main thing I've noticed is that EVERY single one of these assholes uses Gmail. Why is that? I'm basically at a point where if I get an email from anyone with a Gmail account I disregard it, it makes me want to cancel my own.
4537  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Bourne Ultimatum Impressions [Spoilers Welcome] on: August 11, 2007, 06:37:41 PM
I liked the movie, but I felt like the routine was a bit old. Bourne is ALWAYS escaping authorities, he's ALWAYS being chased by an assassin and winds up in a crazy fight with them and then in a car accident with them, he's ALWAYS in a car chase, he's ALWAYS watching your ass when you don't realize it... I was a bit tired of this by the third movie. Still, a great addition to the trilogy, recommend it to any Bourne fan.
4538  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What's the rule on seeing your friend's ex-girlfriend? on: August 11, 2007, 06:33:03 PM
My friend and his girlfriend of three years broke up last week, my friend has been talking about breaking up with her for months now but he finally stepped up and did it. He has already met someone new and is totally into her, I'm beginning to realize he's the type of person who falls pretty fast when he meets a new girl. Anyhow, his ex-girlfriend (who is really hot, by the way) and I have talked a few times since they broke up, and last night we talked for a few hours and I found myself wondering if it would be wrong to see her (i.e I want to hit it). However, in my gut I feel like its the wrong thing, I feel like I'm going behind my friend's back, and it seems way too soon.

Advice? Should I just delete her out of my phonebook and out of my life to avoid the temptation?
4539  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: [WoW] New expansion confirmed on: August 10, 2007, 05:31:35 PM
To me, the main draw of WoW is the people itself. Like Drifter mentioned, I enjoy getting together with a bunch of people, chatting over vent, and working together to clear the raid instances. The social aspect of it is strong enough that I have no problem staying in on a Friday or Saturday night and playing WoW rather than going out the obligitory bar/club/social gathering. And also, as mentioned, the thrill of downing a new boss after days or weeks of attempts is huge, and finally getting the boss down is extremely satisfying. You really don't have to play 50 hours a week  to get anywhere, I know people in casual guilds who just raid two nights a week and do whatever the rest of the week, and they are getting their gear.

Home seems so useless.

I agree, I thought it sounded useless from the moment the first details were revealed. Why do we need such a complicated online user interface? Just copy XBL and replace all the Xbox/MS stuff with PS3/Sony and your set.
4541  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Diablo 3 - Where is it?! on: August 06, 2007, 09:08:41 PM

It might be a good idea to make a Red Rings of Death Sticky thread.

How did we not think of this earlier!?!

The other day I was watching MAD TV and they were doing a skit where the guy was totally in love with his Xbox 360, it showed for a split second him putting a game into the system and it actually has the red rings going. I thought it was funny.
4543  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360]PGR4 limited by DVD size on: August 02, 2007, 02:15:15 AM
Here is the supposed BC employee's comment:

"You won't see different times of day per city because this involves recreating all the textures again (one for day and one for night). Whilst this wasn't a problem for our dev team, it was a problem fitting all this data onto a single DVD. So we've worked around the problem by providing different lighting models per city."

So they solved the problem?

I put a spoiler tag in the subject title... I figured anyone who was interested in the game had finished it (whether played through it or gave up on it) by this point.
4545  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Starcraft 2 hands on preview on: July 31, 2007, 05:14:44 PM

Quote from: Lockdown on July 31, 2007, 11:42:22 AM

All the negative comments aside for a second (including my own)...

I think many non-Korean people will buy this game because it IS starcraft, and the memories are really good.  How many of us remember playing it when we were younger, with our friends?  I still remember all of my friends dragging our big-ass computers and monitors over to my buddy's house who had the "killer" LAN setup.  Jesus, we played 3vs3's for hours upon hours upon hours.  Those kinds of memories are strong.  As the date of release approaches, Blizzard's marketing wondergods will hype this game up to astronomical levels, which will spark all those memories again, and people will buy this game in droves.  Older gamers who have given up on RTS's for whatever reason will be in BestBuy picking out a new refrigerator with their wives, see the 7 bazillion boxes in the center of every isle with the ridiculously cool Protoss cardboard frame, and go, "No way - Starcraft 2!!!   Honey... Can I get this?!" 

That's my prediction, anyway.

 

Completely agree. I'll definately be buying it Day 1, but at the same time if the game feels exactly the same I'll probably lose interest a lot quicker than I did the original game.

A totally derivative sequel with a graphical overhaul

Sounds exactly like what most rabid Starcraft fans want.  No?

Exactly, this is being made for the mob of Koreans that play the game religiously, not those of us who are looking for a new experience in the SC universe. I'm not making any judgements yet, but if this is really how the game is going to turn out, I'll be convinced that Blizzard has finally joined the ranks of "average sell-out developer" instead of being one of few outstanding developers.
4550  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [360/PS3]Stranglehold...which are you getting? on: July 30, 2007, 05:51:19 PM

4551  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: F.E.A.R is not a factor for me! *spoilers* on: July 27, 2007, 06:12:03 PM
The level design sucked, but I thought everything else rocked. The game was definately scary, and the gameplay, while not perfect, was good enough to keep me entertained. I can't wait for the sequel!

4554  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Microsoft's Shane Kim is an idiot. on: July 25, 2007, 10:54:09 PM
I thought that the RE shown at the TGS that Game Informer is referring to was a Resident Evil game only confirmed for "next-gen" systems. It was never given a specific number in the series, nor a specific platform, as far as I remember. I think that is what Shane is referring to.

The game simply doesn't run well on my system so I'm looking to make a trade for it. Everything is in like-new condition, I've barely touched the thing. Willing to trade for 360 and PC games, I don't have any specific games in mind so throw some titles around.

Jim Carey
Spike Lee


Why Jim Carrey?

Eh, that's one memory I think most of us would be willing to look past.
