I witnessed TiVo at a friends on Thanksgiving and I'm thinking of getting one too.  If I do I'll end up going with the HD one though, since the one you linked to doesn't appear to have a HDMI output.


Yeah, I don't have HD cable in my place, but I do have digital cable and for now that's okay

That's odd.  Did you call them and ask if they had an HD box or an HD DVR?  Most of the digital cable packages I've heard of have at least 5 or 6 channels in HD by now.  I'd think your market (Baltimore?) would have it for sure.

They do, but I'm getting my digital cable for free at the moment smile  Why mess up a good thing

I'm thinking about jumping on this deal fromTiVo.  Now I do watch a fair amount of TV, but I have been missing some shows lately due to work and my new sleeping pattern.   Thinking this might be a good Christmaspresent to myself.  it's even more attractive that I can use it wireless


I know we have some who  like the service here.   Anyone have a bad experience with the service?

Was reading about the game and found out that certain of the achievements unlock special things for subsequent playthroughs of the game.  That is cool.

Care to list them all and what you need to do to get them?

Actually if you checked you Achievement via the Mass Effect menu it will tell you


Example I unlocked the Barrier, Lift, Warp, Pistol and Shotgun for all my new toons.  I forget the name of the Achievement, but if you check they are there

Wow, I never saw the decision to choose between Kaiden or Ashley.  I had to sit there and think for a second on whom I would miss more.  In the end I chose Ashley.  Kaiden died a true warriors death.  If I could I would have nominated him for a medal

Yeah, I'm about 12+ hours into it, and have only gotten the last party member, as far as the main quests go. Right now I'm doing side-quests like a maniac, and touching down on planets to do a bit of rovering.

Exactly where I'm at.  Despite people saying that there isn't much to find on random planets, I was quite pleased when I landed on an uncharted planet, found a pirate lair, and then triggered a sidequest in the process. 

Yeah, I haven't run out of things todo yet.  Example I was in the elevator and a Reporter indicated a Marine unit went missing in some odd sector.  Looked in my journal and a quest was triggered just from hearing that report.  I'm currently going to finish that quest up as it iis a breadcrumb that start a whole series.  Loving the game

I'm at work today, but I forsee

Mass Effect- This is gaming goodnesss despite it's flaws
CoD4-  I need to rank up some more and that means playing with Hark, Kato and Jarrod smile
Maybe some TF2, but CoD4 has replaced that for now as my FPS of choice

I also have two Netflix movies on tap.  Live Free or Die Hard and Miami Vice.

Put about 3 hrs in and I am enjoying myself.  Died a few times from not paying attention, but the game seems to auto save befor ea major fight, so I didn'y have to do any major backtracking.   Liking my Vanguard as he seems to be a CQB expert and that's what I like.  Also using the Shotgun is loads of fun.   Only major dislike is that it reminds me so much of Kotor with the way things are laid out.


Game looks freaking awesome on my LCD tv simply amazing.


Saved right after recruiting Wrex and on my way to see The Fist.   Can't wait to see what happens tonight when I get home

in a Vampire game wouldn't it make sense for all the villagers to get together in the village square on a sunny afternoon to do their voting?  anyone who didn't show up would obviously be a vampire  Tongue

Actually I got around this little rule in my game summary.  They are locked into the mansion with the windows covered by the local Vampire prince  Tongue

The vamp game has more depth iirc also.  There is a scanner vamp and an elder vamp who can spawn a new vampire.  Also I think there is a vamp (the spawned) who zerks out when lynched.  On the other hand you have a preist, seer, and hunter in the village, maybe masons iirc.  Tru1cy/SC, refresh my memory.

Elder Brujah -Can sire a vamp.  Must be a normal villager.  power can only be used once
Brujah- Sired Vampire-   if lynched will zerk and kill one of the villager of his choicing
Tremere- Can ask the true role any player- Just the bad guy seer

Seer- Can ask the true role of any player
Hunter- Can stake a vampire during the day.  If he stakes the Brujah the player will not zerk
Priest- Can protect any player at night.  Can self protect, but cannot protect the same player twice in a row. If he protects a vampire that will be the vampire kill for the night


Need a 12-14 player pool for this many specials

The Colts can win by making the Patriots turn the ball over.  You don't score points if you are giving up the ball.
Possibly.  Manning could also keep Brady off the field.  Brady has thrown all of 2 interceptions this year, and the Pats turnover differential is crazy too. 

The Colts are really good, but this Pats team is ridiculous.


Is this the Sunday night game?   

Btw, why wasn't there a Sunday Night game last night?

With sadness in his eyes Purge heads to the gallows. A hush falls over the crowd as the Hangman places the noose over his head.  Purge refuses the hood. Looking over the remaining villagers Purge sadly remarks, " My only regret is that I didn't have the rest of you for dinner.!" 

The lever is thrown and a hush falls over the crowd as Purge body changes into a Werewolf

The cost was high, but the villagers have won

Quote from: Lockdown on October 24, 2007, 05:51:00 PM

Soul: It's not complex, and I was going to suggest that as an alternative to Civ 4. 

Note however, there are four things to consider regarding Sword of the Stars:

1) It's barely a 4x game (in my eyes).  It is heavy on strategy though, especially regarding research choices, ship design, and managing fleet movement/tactics.  Whether this is good or bad is entirely up to you and what you're looking for.

2) The interface can be frustrating at times, although patches continue to improve it.

3) The battle portions of the game are real time unless you auto-resolve.  It functions much like Total War from a gameplay standpoint (tbs & rts combined).  Again, can be good or bad depending on what you are looking for.

4) The game on the whole got some bad press initially.  Going by reviews you find on the net could be misleading, as the game has made a lot of positive changes since being released. 



LD I trust you on 4x games.  Is the Diplomacy okay in the game?
