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?

It is now Day!

The Village awakes and immediately they notice that  DarkEL is missing.   Everyone travels to DarkEL's home and finds the door open.  The scene inside is of terrible carnage.  Blood is every where  the only thing left of DarkEL was his head and the look of fear on his face showed that his last moments wasn't pretty.  Strangly enough what appears to Remus West's chewed on and battered leg is also found in DarkEL's home

 Written in blood on the wall:

My Brother, My Blood!

Five souls are left.  Another person had to be hung today

With a smile on his face Triggercut heads to the gallows. "I forgive you all for you know not what you do!", Triggercut yells.  The hangman places the noose around his neck and and Triggercut refuses the hood.  Eyeing the crowd he bellows, "AVENGE ME! AVENGE ME!!!!" as the floor drops out from under him.  The crowd looks on .....

Then it happens.  Triggercut starts changing before thier collective eyes.  He turns into a Werewolf

Cheers erupt for the crowd as a werewolf has been  killed then terror spreads through the crowd as they realize that Triggercut was telling his pack to avenge him.  They go to bed knowing another night of terror

So my first question is this - I know that if we lynch an innocent villager we get informed of our mistake the next morning. But what if we lynch a wolf or the seer - do we also get notified?

Mod can we get an answer on this?  I have asked this before too and would help use newbies knowing the answer to this question.

Regards,
Pig


If you lynch a Wolf you will get notified right after the lynching.  If the Seer is lynched you will only be notified that he was a innocent human

I'm making a vote for Triggercut -- mainly because I don't think he's gotten a single vote yet in this whole game and flying that low under the radar just screams wolf.   ninja
I'm just trying to help and not critique. Triggercut should have 2 votes. From Austin and DarkEL.

I wouldn't take it as critique.  It's normal for votes to be missed and players are encouraged to make sure the vote count is correct.  Where is Grund when I need him

Quote from: EngineNo9 on October 17, 2007, 04:22:04 PM

I bought a 32" Insignia at Best Buy about a month ago when it was on sale for $499 and I have been very pleased with it.  Regular price is $599, but I'd bet that it might go on sale again by black Friday.  This is the second model of the 32" Insignia NS-LCD32 and I've read nothing but good impressions about it (I think the first silver version was a bit flaky).  It may not be as super as some of the higher end ones, but for $500 it's less than half the price my parents paid for their Samsung and I don't have a single complaint. 

If you are a Rewards memeber, the $500 pricetag will also get you $10 back in coupons, and if you have one of the 10 or 12% off coupons that can save you money up front. 


Yeah I've been eyeing that one.  Think I am going to hold off a few weeks as I'm in no rush with my mortagage is due soon, so I won't be buying a TV this weekend.  It's going to hurt as my 360 was in my Bedroom and gaming in HD has me spoiled

Not a bad price for a 720p TV.

Are you looking for a specific size of TV?

Too Small.   Thinking 24-25 inches at least.   I was looking at Best Buy earlier and nothing stood out to me.

My TV died on me last night while I was sleeping.  It will not stay on when I turn it on, so I am in the market for a new TV.  I'm not spending over 500.00 on a TV for my bedroom, so I am looking for suggestion.  It has to be HD compliant is my only requirement

Oof, that sucks Soulchilde!  Any brands that you don't want to look at?  Also, do you need 1080p or will 720p work for ya?




Either is fine with me.  I'm not a HD nut I know I just need it smile   Money is tight so I will be using a old SDTV til next week when I can get it.  Online retailers are okay and brand doesn't matter smile

All in all, a very uneventful and rather boring filler episode. (still good quality television, just Heroes has been better)

+1 for this comment by Dragonfyre.  Boring Heroes is better than 90% of the stuff on TV


I love heroes, but I'm starting to become tired of the show's formatting. I want more episodes like S1's Company Man, focusing on a few heroes and revealing a lot, rather than the bite sized stories

+100 Again I am loving the show, but having ten different story lines is killing the show.  FYI, I think they are trying to go bigger and better with more heores, but I think having so many plotlines is killing the show

Also, give Hiro and Ando thier own spin off Heroes show.  The kid deserves it  thumbsup
