I've found something I hate. It is when I accidentally run someone over with my horse. If it's a woman she screams and gets me in trouble. If it's a guy then he gets up and shoots me. If I shoot back then I get the bounty on me. I don't see that as fair.

Also I once paid my bounty off and went outside and the lawman still attacked me. He was using his fists. I figure I'd just let him win and be done with it. HE KILLED ME with his fist! BS.

Still loving the game by a ton though.

I was prompted at one time to holster my gun and just stand there to give myself up. they kept friggin shooting = me dead. Lame.

LOL.. no I still have mine as well for the same reason.  

I still can't locate it!! I went to hangmans rock or whatever it is called - looked for another outcropping of rocks and came up zeros.

A few hours into the single-player, what an incredible game so far. Everything about it is excellent with the exception of a few instances where the controls are slightly wonky. The dialogue has surpassed my expectations, although I should have expected this from Rockstar. The shooting is really fun, I hope it only gets better as your dead eye level goes up.

This Wild West world is so well-done, it almost makes me want to kick back a few shots of whiskey while I play  icon_lol

I am having trouble adjusting to the fact that the horses do not have a reverse setting (control wise)
I also noticed that at least once I was walking by a house and was suddenly thrown into a cut scene that I did not want to watch at the time - there was no yellow X denoting that I had to go there - so it wasn't like I missed something.

I also need to learn to run and gun a little better. The bullet damage really takes a toll on my level 1 character.

MP is pretty cool - when we aren't trying to kill each other.

Still can't apply my codes though?

Gotta say that this series just ended weird? It kinda just pettered out at the end.

One of the odd things was when they were showing the quick little bio's of the actual participants/actors I could not place more than %10. The principle actors were easy to spot (Sledge, Snafu, Sledges friend & Lecky) but the others were just so distant for me I felt it was just really odd - I could not connect any of them.

All in all - I can say that I watched it - thats about it. Nothing more and nothing less. I will not be buying the DVD set.

Hi guys - the few that I saw on Ebay were anywhere from 115-130 for 80gb models.

The price includes shipping. I would be willing to go as low as $100 including shipping if that makes any difference?

Just let me know.

Thanks.
Roman

BestBuy has the new ones here: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Zune/Zune-MP3-Players/pcmcat168100050016.c?id=pcmcat168100050016

Granted they are the HD models but 16gb for $200? I would think that this is a pretty good deal for $100. Thoughts?

Also here is the Ebay listings that I was referring to: http://shop.ebay.com/?_from=R40&_trksid=p3907.m570.l1311&_nkw=zune+80gb&_sacat=See-All-Categories

It's not like Isaac is the only person in the world that can wear a miner suit and die and get infected. Could also be a hallucination or dream.

agreed - however if that were the case than I would have assumed that we would have seen the infected in the 1st game wearing the engineer suits no?

Quote from: Jimmy the Fish on April 27, 2010, 06:22:47 PM

I think it is totally worth watching. However, a lot of people are disappointed because they compare it to Band of Brothers. It's not meant to be a "sequel" to BOB. BOB was all about the brotherhood of the platoon so it focuses on a small group of guys who you get to know literally from boot camp all the way to the end of the war. The Pacific is really only focused on two, maybe three, guys' individual stories. Other characters come and go which leads to some confusion honestly because it's a bit tricky to keep track of all the people the central characters meet and interact with. Also, BOB was more "heroic" in tone because the European theater was more of a "fight the good fight" kind of thing, so that series was very clear in that regard. In The Pacific, there is more emphasis on the sheer brutality and horror of war, in part due to the highly tenacious nature of the enemy. The Japanese soldiers were trained never to surrender and kill as many American soldiers as possible even in the face of their inevitable death. This has a huge impact on the psychological aspect of the battles to the Marines. Without spoiling anything, there is a lot more portrayal of the struggles with ethics during wartime and how men can act so terribly towards their fellow human beings.

Anyhow, I think The Pacific is excellent. If I had one criticism it's that a lot of the CGI effects look pretty weak, and while I understand the whole tone of the "horrors of war" I  think at times it's very heavy handed.

Exactly how I feel and am glad that someone was able to put it down like that. The European theater had more of the 'romance' of war feeling - they were there because they felt that their cause was just etc etc.

I am watching it every week either 'live' or DVR'd and am enjoying it. Episode 7 certainly did expose the human ethics portion.
I also am finding that every battle that the Marines endured were super long and strung out - very disheartening to say the least. Reminds me of the BoB Bastogne battles.

Red was one of two options - the other was black.

And yes the skin is completely clear - there is no distortion to the screen or unit whatsoever. The skin cover 99.9% of the uniot - the skins are awesome. Really protects from nicks / scratches.

The unit is about 1.5 yrs old if memory serves.
Zunes also have a FM radio built in and wireless sync.

nothing wrong with paying for a multiplayer only title Tongue  I didn't play single player in BC1, BC2, MW2, Halo 3, ODST, Rainbow Six:Vegas 2 and a few others.  It's not like you didn't get more hours of play out of the multiplayer than you will from the single player so I don't know why you're ashamed of not playing it.

you know what - you're right. The single player campaign wasn't anything too original. I may just look to getting it traded in.
1080  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / FS - Zune 80gb Red. Mint. Any interest? SOLD on: April 27, 2010, 01:53:06 PM
Hi all,

I am getting rid of my 80gb Zune (2nd generation) Would there be any interest on this end?

Includes:

Red 80gb Zune - also has a protective 2 piece skin from bestskinsever.com http://www.bestskinsever.com/microsoft-zune-80-120-total-body-skin-2nd-gen that was applied soon after I purchased the Zune. The Zune also spent all its time inside the leather case before the skin application.
Retail Box
Official leather case
USB charging and sync cable (official)
USB charging and docking station (official)

It will not include the earbuds. I like them too much and I am sure that you won't want what was in my ears  Tongue

The unit is flawless in every way. I am only selling it because the Zune marketplace is not available in Canada and I am tired of waiting for it. I am jumping to the Ipod Touch dark side.

I was thinking of a price close to $110 - includes shipping to NA. I have looked on ebay and that is how I came up with the price.

Thoughts?
