A) Buy it at Costco, just keep refunding it.

B) Wait for 2ndGEN hardware version towards the end of the year.

C) Both A and B

I am opting for C sometime late this year, or next.

I recommend Cingular highly.  I have great service and the few times I dealt with customer service I've come away happy.  When I wanted to upgrade my phone early they gave me the credit without any issues.  I also didn't have to renew my plan.   thumbsup

I'll pick for you:  RAVENS!

There, now your 4 picks are in.


 nod Yeah, I'll have to call wuss on this one!  There will be much teeth-gnashing and swearing the Ravens loses this game.  Wouldn't be so if it was any other team in the AFC, but killiing the Irsays is a big thing in town this week

I'm too emotionally involved to call the Balt/Indy game.  Beating the Colts in Baltimore is becoming quite personal , so I will abstain from this game.

It's been a while, but McNair might have enough knack to pull it off.


Agreed, McNair does bring a nice mix into it.  As long as he is in then the Ravens have a chance.  Ask Arkon how good McNair can be  Tongue icon_twisted



McNair is good, but the Steelers were just plain baaaaaaaaaad in both games.  I mean come on... Oakland beat the Steelers.... of course the Ravens beat us as well.


Cowher should have never stuck with Big Ben after the pasting the Ravens put on him after the first game.  Batch shoul dhave been in from that game on.  Big Ben has been off all season

I highly recommend Guyver.  Be careful as there are several different versions but I find this one to be quite good.

Record of the Lodoss War is also good and I own it on DVD  thumbsup

Also I highly recommend  Ninja Scroll, but be careful of this as there is a rape scene and some very violent content in the anime

Will post more later

How so?  I don't think the economy is screwed on the Horde side.  I am starting to see a bit more Paladin equipment on the AH at insane prices, but other than that nothing abnormal

I did see a BrainHacker on Ah for 120 bo, but with casuals able to get better epics via PVP that didn't seem strange to me at all

Wanderers are back.  Yes.  Looks like its mostly the OLD members who came back.  Though I dont really know.  I was sorely disappointed when I talked with some of them and mentioned that Wanderers was really a connection to OO/GT/GG and they said no.  So, oh well.


Actually, it depends on who you talk in-game. We do have a ton of new people that know nothing of GG/OO/GT/BC.  We still had to recruit a tone. With TBC on the verge of coming out alot of people are taking a break to recharge thier battieries.  Myself, I'm pvping every night I can  icon_twisted

Tough weekend, really busy, at relatives and what not.  But I plan to get in some Railroads with the new patch and holiday scenario.  Also I definately want to partake it finishing a few The Guild 2 games we haven't sealed up yet.  Flat Out 2 probably will come out for a bit, then maybe some 1701 A.D. or something.

Also in a big change, I have been rather hooked on Zelda Twilight Princess (GameCube) during my late night trysts with it when the kids are sleeping as it is one of their Christmas gifts.  I want to get more of that in.

Then on Christmas day, it will be *ALL* PS2 with a shit ton of games to play baby!

Jak and Daxter
Dynasty Tactics 2
Shadow of the Colosus
Champions of Norrath
Final Fantasy X
Dragon Quest VIII
God of War

Is this really the best solution?  To prohibit discussion of how this new console battle shapes up over the next year?  No mention of which version of a cross-platform release has better visuals?  Whether it's worth getting a nonHD Wii version of a game because of the motion control?  Whether Forza 2 or Gran Turismo 5 is the new champion of the genre?

It's your house, and your rules, of course.  It's just sad that I'd have to head to QT3 or OO to find discussion about how this new Nintendo-Sony-Microsoft cagematch is shaping up.  I like GT better.

Is there really no way we can turn the discussions civil again, instead of getting rid of them entirely?


I think Ron was just asking for a cease fire.  Those threads just turned into flame wars to quickly.  Being gamers I think we will always discuss and fight when it comes to the different systems smile

Based on those shots, the Xbox360 is graphically superior.  Seems to me, the Xbox360 has a far better lighting engine than the PS3 just by looking at those shots. Also the fuzzy and washed out look on the PS3 is pretty alarming.

Looks like it will come down to the games and exclusives on which console will win, because graphically, the Xbox360 looks better, but the PS3 may close that gap, and if they do, like I said, its going to come down to the games.. 

That isn't fair though. The PS3 has launch games only to go off of. We need at least a year to determine anything.


They should have compared the 360 launch games vs the ps3.   Imo, this console war will be decided by the end of 2007

I consider myself pretty mild-mannered when it comes to losing at video games.  I've come to accept that even though it's something I do, I'm not entirely the best at it.  So losing at games, meh, I've come to terms with it and it's okay.

But I swear, you take a mild-mannered, incredibly calm player and put him in front of the screen on the easiest difficulty of Street Fighter 2 and tell him/her to beat the game for you; and they'll lose it. 

Because I'm that person.

And I think I'm pretty decent at the Street Fighter series.

And I don't know if it's the controller or what...

But wow. 

And I know the 1337 Street Fighter plays will come in here and be like, "Yeah man, Ken's uppercut has a .24ms time, allowing you to glitch through the first frame of Ryu's fireball manuever, giving you an extra millisecond of time to pull off a jab-uppercut combo", but I'd expect really insane CPU difficulty on pretty much every other difficulty level other than the lowest.

So, calm gamers.  I challenge you.  Go through the arcade mode in Street Fighter on the XBLA.  I fucking double-dog-dare you.

The 360 controller is not good for SF or MK.  Most of the serious fans out there suggest getting the fighting stick
