That's bizarre.  I would think that is a GT database issue, no?  Aren't our avatars stored there?  Either way, if someone else doesn't help you before tonight, I'll send you a fresh image this evening.  On one condition....

You ARE getting Vegas 2 when it comes out in March.... right?

You honesltly think I would miss a occasion to shot you in the back ???   Yes, I will be buying Vegas 2 day one

<----- Notice the lack of Avatar?  It's been this way for about a week or so without you resolving the issue.  While I appreciate you making the Avatar when I decided to switch to the one you made for me it was with the understanding that you would host it.  So what happened?  If you could be so kind and replace the image I would certainly be in your debt or something like that..

I'll say this. $400 to play games = no sale, IMHO. So it plays blu-ray movies. Its still marketed as a game machine.

But $350 to play games = sale?

I can't understand this line of thinking. Is $50 such a huge gap?  That's less than the price of a game.  That's less (or the same) as a years worth of Live.

Why yes, $350 to play games = sale. That price made me feel better about spending my hard-earned cash to buy a next-gen console

That's right.  I'm always forgetting that the PS3 has no games.  Roll Eyes

You brought up the question about whether a $50 price difference is important. It IS for some people. There's something about a $400 price point that makes people say "OMG that's expensive" while a $350 price point makes them say "well, that's not too bad". I brought up nothing about the PS3 not having any games to play. In fact, I think it has some GREAT games to play! The $400 barrier is still a barrier to me and quite a few other people.

Just wait. When Sony drops the PS3 price to $350 or less you will see more people posting, saying "Hey, I just got my PS3! What games should I buy?"


+1  400 Is to much for me to spend on a console/Blu-Ray player.   If the PS3 hits a 299.00 price point I might make the jump, but at it's present price point  I can't do it.

Stupid question:

Do I need to complete the entire demo before I can save? Or can I save after each mission? Or anywhere? I'm hoping it's not the first choice as I've not the time to play through in one sitting... plus I'm currently sharing my PSP with my son until he replaces his lost/stolen unit.

If I can save after each mission, how do I save? I'm pretty sure I've tried every button combo I can think of.

it only gave me the option of saving once I bet the last boss.  So yeah I think you have to complete the demo before you can save.

Ok.  Me not smrt.  When I try to download the demo from the Playstation store (gellar's link) I download a 1kb .xpd file.  Also, I'm not seeing a link to a downloader.  I have also had little success accessing the playstation store from my PSP directly.  I apologize for derailing the thread, but would someone mind explaining it to me as you would to a child.  A not particularly bright child.  TIA.

Yeah, you need PS downloader to grab the demo. Took me awhile to figure it out as well.  Should be a link somewhere on the website to d/l the installer.

here it is  it stupid where they hide the link

I've been having intermittent "fever" problems as well. Mainly it involves keeping the fever once it first starts. I think the key is to keep imagining the same song that the patapons sing when in normal mode in response to your drumbeat. Use that to determine when to start drumming again

I.e.
normal mode
you on keypad: [] [] [] ()
patapons sing: pata pata pata pon

once they get into fever mode
you on keypad: [] [] [] ()
patapons: blahblahblahblah! FEVAHHH!!!
you in your head: pata pata pata pon
once your internal song is done you start pressing buttons for the next drum command.


I found that playing with a headset on helps me keep the fever alive that much longer.  psp speakers are poor for playing this game.   once, i tried the headset i was able to get alot of materials from the tree

Or in the alternative, has anyone found out if Netflix still has that good list of current releases and has just hidden it?

It's still there. They just buried it in thier website...

I heard about this on the news this morning.  Pretty sad.  I think my brother had it pegged, that it might be an Obama/Hillary ticket.

Not. Going. To. Happen.

Obama/Edwards is more likely

Quite possibly.  But I think Obama is going to want a more substantial resume and someone who brings more experience to the game, as well as a guy who can compete for men and in the SW/Pacific Coast.  That makes it an easy decision:

Obama / Richardson

Makes enough sense, really helps to end his problems with the Hispanic vote.

Then just shove Edwards in as Attorney General.

Yup.

Plus Richardson has the best resume of anyone out there.  Governor of New Mexico, US Representative, Ambassador to the UN and US Secretary of Energy.  If Obama's biggest flaw is a lack of experience (I keep waiting on a big skelleton to pop from Obama's closet), then Richardson really helps to shore that up.


Would Richardson accept a VP slot?

President Clinton race baiting in SC has soured alot of bag name Dems against Hilary.  I think we will see less of Bill.  I think he took his favorable african american support for granted and he got burned. 

I think most of their comments were widely publicized out of context, but that's just the typical "liberal media" at work.  It worked out well for the Obama campaign, of course, but thats one of several tactics they've taken which I think helps his candidacy at the expense of the Democratic party (and the progressive movement as a whole).

Not that I think a president Hillary is even close to the perfect progressive candidate, but at least she isn't praising Ronald Reagan and worshipping at the altar of bipartisanship.  I've said before how I have serious issues with my senator's claims of what "opposing the war" means, seeing as how he's never actually opposed anything.

So as far as Obama is concerned, I simply don't get the feeling that he's bringing anything different to the table, aside from being a new face at the same old table in the same old room, talking about the same old things in the same old way while they eat the same old food.  And since both he and Hillary are drinking deeply from the well of defense industry money, I don't really know how "The Candidate of hope" means to actually change anything.  Maybe he's just going to hope things change?  Or hope that when he sits around the big table with the insurance industry and pharmaceutical industry, he's going to hope that everything works out how he wants?

I'm just hoping he has the good sense to get a VP who wants to kick some asses, rather than sit around the big bipartisan table and eat granola and sing kumbaya.  If he sticks with his bipartisan bullshit, there's going to be a whole lot of disappointed people, who thought they were voting for a Democrat.

I haven't made up my mind on whom to support, but I was lining up for Hilary cause at least know her record.  The thing is that if Hilary is nominated than she is the one canidate that the majority of republicans will line up against.   

I do think Bill's comments was taken out of context, but you have to admit Hilary;s camp has been trying to get Obama's camp into a race debate.

Well, I think Edwards is hoping to get enough votes to sway the election one way or the other, which will give him a bit of influence.  Definitely a good thing, IMO, so I'll still be voting for him.

But it seems like the Democratic establishment is lining up behind Obama.  The Kennedy's have come out on his side, as have many other big players.

President Clinton race baiting in SC has soured alot of bag name Dems against Hilary.  I think we will see less of Bill.  I think he took his favorable african american support for granted and he got burned. 

With the Kennedy's support of Obama things aren't looking so good for Clinton.'
