The 3DS and all of the games announced for it are the star of the show for me. Snake Eater 3D, Ocarina of time, Final Fantasy, Ninja Gaiden. Plus the graphics are near or maybe even better than the PSP. This system is going to be huge.
I really enjoyed the season. I like Olyphant in just about anything he does, but making it a modern western really helps too. I really wish Clint Eastwood would direct Olyphant in a western playing the typical Eastwood roll. That would kick all kinds of ass.
Glad it worked out for you. It sounds like you got lucky though with the storm only affecting the vid card and not the motherboard and CPU. It could have been a lot worse. Plus you got a brand spanking new vid card out of the deal.
The chapter 11 boss was infinitely easier for me with Lightening, Fang, and Hope in the group.
That's funny that was my group for the whole game, except that boss fight. I had an easier time of it when I switched out Fang and Hope for Sazh and Vanille. I think they had access to some buffs and debuffs a little earlier than Hope and Fang get them, namely haste.
I'm pretty sure that Hope had haste when I fought this boss. Which may make the difference.
I fully expect Jack to be bitten by a radioactive spider, trained by Ra's Al Ghul in martial arts, given a power ring by an errant Green Lantern and reveal himself as the 2nd to last son of Krypton before the show's over.
If that happened not even Chuck Norris could stand toe to toe with Jack.
Also the official PS3 Bluetooth headset is pretty good and it has a charging dock that connects to the PS3. You can buy it alone, or with SOCOM or Tom Clancy's Endwar if you can still find those games in store. Otherwise just go with a $20 bluetooth and you should be good.
My fucking local abc affiliate messed up the airing of this. They are replaying it Saturday. The entire thing was all choppy and the screen would go entirely purple for seconds at a time. Someone at the Cleveland station is getting fired today for sure.
Loved, loved, Loved! Jack's assault on President Weasel's motorcade. That was so badass! Also, loved how they just showed the after effects of Jack's rampage thru the Russian Ambassador's office.
I hear that things will not end up well for Jack as the series ends, but having him cross the line into full revenge mode is writing genius. He's lost his moral compass (momentarily) and everything's going to hell.. and lots of people are paying for their immoral decisions (sorry President Taylor, you too). I'm totally pumped for the series finale!
This episode was awesome and IMO one of the best single episodes in series history. BUT I really wish they would have shown Jack killing those Russian guys. It would have been so bad ass. Oh well, seeing the after effect was still pretty sweet.
This series was actually more powerful for me than BoB was. The reason being that my grandfather (Who is still alive) was a Marine who served in the Pacific and took part in many of the battles shown in the series. Having this living person who I love and respect go through that really drove home the horror that our forefathers went through. I have always respected my grandfather's service, but this series really put it at a whole new level, and it makes me question whether or not I could do what he did. Bob wasn't able to do that for me as much, I think mostly because I never had a person close to me who participated in the European theater, so I couldn't relate to is as much.
Having the ability to live through something like that and then once it's all over come home and actually be a productive part of society truly is amazing to me. Watching Sledge's struggles once he got back really drove that home.
Russell's expects the jury to not have any feelings. He thinks they should respect his game because he is the best at targeting another player and getting them voted out. The problem is that he was the only one in that final 12 who can put his feelings aside and say who played the best strategically. Everyone else clearly wanted to vote for the person who played the cleanest game. Which definitely wasn't Russell.
Those pics are impressive (and your daughter is adorable )
Thank you, sir!

I started using Livestrong.com, it has a very easy to use online calorie counter that records everything you eat and has a fitness aspect to put in how much exercise you do.
I've tried using several different calorie counters and exercise trackers, but I never have the patience to keep up with them.
Since the Insanity meal guide is set up in chunks of equal caloric amounts per meal, I've gotten pretty good at guesstimating the amount of calories in my meals.
Nice job on getting rid of the man boobs. But I think the weight loss is even more noticeable in your face and overall head shape. You look much better without the extra weight up there. You should think about starting to lift weights, it will tone your body and give you a better shape. even a light 30 minute workout targeting the major muscle groups three times a week will give you noticable results within a month or two.
So they're going with Hector Hammond as the villain? Sinestro is in the film, so I guess he's still in the Corps and doesn't go rogue until the sequel. I've always felt the poor guy was doomed to super villainy from the beginning, what with that evil, little, moustache, and being named "Sinestro". It's kinda like being stuck with the name "Von Doom".
Pretty happy to hear that my favorite Lantern, Kilowog, is going to make an appearance. We just don't see enough alien warthog-looking Galactic Drill Instructors these days.
I have a hard time believing that Hector Hammond will be the main villain. Side villain maybe, but he's not strong enough a character to get main bad guy billing. That would be like making the Toymaster the main villain in a Superman movie. Lame.

I hate to ask, but is there any way to equate that to Wow level time?
I would say they are about the same. LotRO used to take longer, but Turbine really revamped the starting areas through lvl 30 to make it easier and smoother to lvl up. The problem I see you running into is that not all of the skirmishes open up a lvl 30. You have to reach certain lvls to unlock most skirmishes, but some also require you to complete certain quests. But, if memory serves three of them do open up at lvl 30.
The Lesbians were definitely ugly on both the outside and the inside. They couldn't take the fact that Caite was actually playing the game and eliminated them. Their sense of superiority over other people is very evident.
Overall it was a great season. The show kept on pace and never dragged, there weren't very many lame challenges and two of the best teams were neck and neck at the end. I was rooting the cowboys as well, but the other two brothers just destroyed that memory challenge and really earned the win so I can't be mad at them.

"There is no Sayid!" "I wish you wouldn't have believed me." (ncl-Locke to ncl-Jack) I'm pretty sure the "dentist" that Jack went to see knows what's up with NCL (no crash land). Even as stupid as ncl-Jack is I think he's finally getting a clue that something's not quite right in NCL. Poor Jin and Sun. That wasn't very nice of the writers.
The whole plane/attack the sub stuff didn't feel right. Uber-paranoid Widmore had only two guards at the plane? The sub was unguarded? Didn't make any sense to me. Maybe smokey did more damage than was shown when he freed the prisoners? Piss poor writing?
I'm still holding out hope that smokey is not the bad guy simply because the idea of Widmore being the good guy is repugnant.
As for Widmore, after this weeks episode I'm starting to think Widmore is actually in league with Smokey. Why in the heck would he attack smokey and not have the stupid fencing ready. He knows Smokey is going to retaliate, but he attacks without having his defenses ready? It doesn't make sense and it was out of character. Plus he didn't show his face at all once smokey was on the attack. The whole thing seemed weird to me.
Also, what melee class is the best soloer and most fun?
You can solo a hunter and a champ fairly well. I really cant say which one is more fun, but there certainly seems to be a lot of hunters in the game so people must like that class.
Since when did Hunter become a melee class?
I assume he means high DPS that isn't a magic caster, thus Champs and Hunters. I would actually put your suggestion of a Captain in as a tank/bard type character, not a melee character. Of course this is assuming he means high DPS and not just that they are close range fighters.
I say go with the Rune Keeper as well. It's definitely the best spell caster class in the game and you can solo really well with them. The Loremaster is the other major spell casting class, but they don't solo well at all.
So how has this game come along since launch? I thought it was pretty solid back then, but haven't played since that time.
Is the majority of the game soloable now (similar to WoW)? Other than dungeons of course.
Eminently soloable. I'd say I've soloed 95% of my time running 1-65. Even more soloable now, given the fact that the Epic Quests have been redsigned to allow players to do it either in a group or solo.
Yeah I agree very soloable at this point. Of course in order to get the most out of the game you need to have a good group of friends. There are tons of great instances in the game that reguire 3 to 6 players. Non are mandatory, but it would be a shame to miss them.
