I probably wouldn't have, but i got a $300 HDDVD player for $99 during the frenzy (BB ran out and upgraded me for free). Now i'm buying HD movies because i can't stand SD DVD anymore. I do see the difference on my new 65 HDTV.

And this is exactly why I'm just not ready to jump into either format just yet.  I don't want to end up with a betamax player that will eventually just end up collecting dust.

CoD4 has it's claws in me and hasn't let go.  Halo3 is a distant memory at the moment.   I'll grab them when they are free.   This morning when I was playing CoD4 I heard some guys talking about 3 new maps out for CoD4. ...maybe they was talking about Halo3.  Make sense I guess

Quote from: Gratch on December 05, 2007, 03:10:33 PM

OK, here's some actual demo impressions.   eek

Looks like this version of Culdcept suffers from the same problems as the last version.  Namely, the AI freaking cheats.  I was hoping it was just random bad luck , but the pattern is pretty much the same.  Both myself and the AI would level up multiple squares.  I would land on one of theirs nearly every time around the board, yet the AI would somehow manage the perfect die rolls and never land on mine.   In the game I played, I had five level 3 squares, and the AI had three.  Yet somehow I landed on the AI's Level 3 squares 9 times, and they landed on mine once.   It simply becomes an exercise in frustration, and the demo was quickly deleted.

As much as love the concept and would love to support more niche Japanese titles, I won't be buying this game.





The opposite  happened to me.  This was my first time ever playing this game and I actually won.  Won a few battles lost one or two.  I did notice that the AI would get rather high dice rolls, but other than that no cheating.  I might actually pick it up

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

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
