4361  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Books Read in 2007 (Keep It Updated) on: April 30, 2007, 07:05:44 PM
Since i like the Dresden Files TV series I decided to take a crack at the books.  So far I've read

Storm Front
Fool Moon
Grave Peril
Summer Knight
Death Masks



I'll be starting Blood Rites tonight and I have Dead Beat after that.  The books are enjoyable reads, but his action scenes almost always play out the same.

So... yeah... interested in the game.  Curious if it is real-time or turn-based for one thing.


I was close to picking it up, but decided to wait for impressions first

Played some VtM: Bloodlines   Made it to Downtown LA and I'm now working on the Anarch questline.

Picked up Jim Butcher's Dresden Files books.  Read Storm Front over the weekend and it was alright.  I will start Full Moon sometime this week

I reinstalled Vampire the Masqerade: Bloodlines.  Playing as a Tremere this time

Cancelled my account for WOW, so I might actually do some reading as well.  Maybe start rereading Harry Potter Series for the release of the seventh and final book

This thread feels like it is about to take a turn for the worst - let's be careful not to make this personal.  I don't mind a good healthy discussion of the topic at hand, but try to keep it civil.  Just sayin'...


these conversation never end well...ever

For the sake of harmony I think this thread should be locked

Gave up my Gamefly account about six months ago and I really don't miss it.  With me living on the east coast the turn around time got to be 5 days between games  icon_eek   So, until they open up a warehouse on the east coast then I won't be using them any longer

You know it's pretty easy to respond to things like this and have no true understanding of what it feels like to be a minority in this country.  Is the time for civil right laws or affrimative action is over?  I'm not sure.  Sometime I think there time has come, but then I hear someone like Imus and I'm reminded of why those laws where passed


What I do know is that my grandparents and parents lived under some pretty nasty Jim Crow laws that where on the books alot longer than Affrimative Action and Civil Rights.

Those that asked..Yes, calling a black women a nappy headed hoe is considered fighting words for a black man, so yeah Imus crossed a line few would even venture

For the record I don't think Imus should be fired.  It's his right to say what he wants, but he should be man enough to deal with the reprecussions.  He's been exposed as a closet racist and that's fine with me.

Anyway, back to your regular conversation about minorites getting up in arms about such silly nonsense  nod  Roll Eyes

Sorry to see Hetz leave.   His ethusiam  for gaming sure did get me excited.  I see him sign on to Live, so I don't think he is that much a PS3 fanboi.

Anyway, personally I will miss his insight and excitment for new games and hardware, but his trolling of recent had to be handled.

I'm amazed anyone could dislike this movie. What do you guys consider "fine cinema"? If you favorite movie is Stealth, then yeah, maybe this isn't the movie for you, but unlike a lot of movies where reviews are merely lukewarm, this film has overwhelmingly positive reviews, some of the highest reviews in a long time, so usually that is a good indicator it is not just good, but excellent.

Stealth suck

My idea of fine cinema:

Godfather 1 & 2
Saving Private Ryan
Unforgiven
Do the right thing
The Departed


The Children of Men just didn't grab me.  I found it pretty okay.  Glad I didn't pay money to see it at a Movie House

I saw it last night and while I thought it was good...it dragged at times and the ending was meh...they had potential to make it an amazing ending and seemed to stop short or anything.
Pretty much my opinion as well.  My wife absolutely hated it.

My opinion as well.   Overrall I thought the movie was okay.   I guess it just didn't grab me

Well I like GTA series so I'll be picking this up when it's released.  Thought this would be a Christmas release, but I guess with the Juggernaut that is Halo probably coming this holiday season a summer release for GTA would be nice

Heh, as far as Microsoft is concerned it's the other way around.  MS has admitted to not being willing to release Halo 3 in October so it doesn't compete with GTA and their have been strong hints that they are considering a Halo 3 September release to get it out before GTA4. 


That make sense as well.  I forget that GTA4 will be released on both PS3 and 360

The justification for u[grading to Blu-Ray or HD-DVD just isn't there.  To be honest I'm happy with DVDs and probably won't look to upgrading til I have a TV that supports 1080p.  I love my 1080i TV and see no reason for upgrading at the moment.

DVD took of once the players came down in price and the same thing will probably happen one Blu-Ray and HD-DVD players drop in price

There is no way in hell I would buy one of the Elites, even if my 360 goes belly up. It's a total ripoff.

Ruined!  PS-triple foreva'!

You know I was thinking about keeping my PS3 and saying to hell with MS anyway and selling my 360 before the next update decides to brick my system. Do you know if the Spring update includes the "brick every 40th system" code in it?

 I'm still on the fence about it though.  icon_confused

Fyi-I think you and Brendan  should go to neutral corners.  No need to make this personal

Listen, I bought my 360 as a game machine.  Not a movie machine.  Not a multimedia machine.  A game machine.

I'm sure you guys know that probably the biggest driver is their desire to ramp up the marketplace movie downloads/tv downloads.

Well, as Penny Arcade pointed out, then perhaps they should have subsidized the new HDD so it wasn't so expensive with the idea of making it up on marketplace downloads in the long run.  As is, I'm loathe to buy the 120 Gig drive at almost $200.00 and sticking with the 20 Gig drive severely hampers my desire for much of the marketplace content. 

First of all agree completely, second I don't think there are enough people like gellar to think this is a wise move, and finally (Although I seem to be the only person that is still harping on this), if they really want to ramp up the marketplace for movie downloads, make it competitive with every other rental service out there. The fact that people are renting and downloading movies from them for 4 dollars a pop that sometimes take 24 hours to download and they they only have 24 hours to watch or they lose it is so insanely insulting to consumers that can get 2 DVDs out at a time for 10 bucks from blockbuster and watch 8 or so of them in a month for twice that cost and spend as long as they damn well choose to watch them is just mind-boggling. The fact that MS doesn't recognize this flaw is equally mystifying. I wish more people were as annoyed about it as I am, because frankly I WANT to download and watch HD movies. I want to do it now, but I won't do it the way they have it set up.


I think MS hands are tied on this, Calvin.  The deal they have with the Movies Houses probably have this insane stipulation.

Ok, got it home. Went to attach the blue, red, and green wire to the TV and noticed that the DVD-Sound system is using that slot. There is no other place to put these cables on the TV?

Do I need another cord?

might help if we could see the back of your tv, but most HD tv have several slots  to attach cables.

If MP is fun like that than I may have to give this a try.  Unfortunately, I don't own any of the popular (Rainbow 6, Gears or GRAW) MP games except Battlestations Midway.
