This episode was rather weak.  Sylar surviving is rather weak and they just need to kill him off.  There is no guarantee that Peter or Nathan is alive or dead.  I know ambiguity is a trade mark in comics, but leaving  so many loose ends just seems weak


The actor playing Hiro deserves a Oscar!   He is awesome

Can't wait for the second season

It's like SC vs. TA all over again.  SC story and production values rock, but the tech in TA was lightyears above it and made for a much more strategic game.


If our desire is for the RTS to keep evolving from a gameplay standpoint, I think Relic is where we need to be looking for the most part.


Bravo-could not be more true. Have innovated, changed, evolved, and responded with every game released and nearly every patch. Far and away the best RTS maker in the world. Period.


That's debatable.  I take nothing away from Relic, but there is a reason none of thier games are a must have.  I enjoyed DOW and still play it from time to time.  I never played CoH but that's because I was burned out on WW2.   Honestly, Relic games are a system hog and there is a reason why SC and CC have such a massive following.  People don't need the bleeding edge system to enjoy it.   

Anyway, we have only seen bits of SC2.  As we all know Blizzards likes to keep this stuff very hush-hush and until the game is released we are all just speculating unless Tiny Orge wants to spill the beans  icon_biggrin

Crackdown dominated my time.  Cleared Los Muertos and I'm not working on the Volk.  Fired up some M:TW2 and I'm playing the HRE and I'm establishing peace with my neighbors.  I'm planning to wipe out the Milanese and Ventian.  If the Pope gets in my way I will wipe him out as well, but first the carrot...then the stick  nod

Another reason for a buyer to beware buying a used 360.  It might've been banned...

Modding you 360 to get a edge in a MP game is just plain stupid and the fuckwads deserve to be banned

I signed up for Gamefly after they opened the Philly warehouse.

I signed up on a Tuesday and got my two games that Thursday. I haven't sent them back yet so I don't know what turnaround will be.

That'll be the acid test. If it's more than 4 days it'll be just like Gameznflix and Gamerang and I'll end up canceling it pretty quickly.

Make sure you come back tell us how the return process go for you

yeah, this has been quietly calling my name as well.  Might just crackdown (decided to get this as well) and buy it

 Ted could withstand his explosions, so it stands to reason that Sylar will be able to as well.

Since Gamefly has opened a Warehouse in Pittsburgh has anyone noticed a faster delivery and return time.  Specifically, asking East Coast people.  Thinking of reupping if the delivery time is better
4424  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 11 May 07 on: May 11, 2007, 06:26:41 PM
Probably going to play some GRAW2 MP tonight.  Maybe play some Medieval:Total  War 2.  I finally was able to get a Kingdom (Denmark) to become my vassal.  Might try to finish up that campaign this weekend

I've said it once, I'll say it again.  I'm not buying stuff that I can't burn to disc or have on disc some way.  Virtual content just leaves people lost in the lurch when the servers die or when platforms are retired.

Not using spoilers tags


After last week this episode was weak, but that was to be expected.  It's interesting to see Hiro's conflict with himself.  He knows he has to kill Sylar, but he doesn't have the taste for blood yet.  Watching his transformation will be fun to watch.  Also, Mr. Sulu is back next week!!!!  thumbsup

I've always suspected it would be Ted/Nuclear Man that would go NOVA.  He will explode to get the tracking system


I'm ready for Sylar to die.  I think Linderman's Cabal makes a much better villian at the point.  Maybe that's what they are setting up for season 2

The fans really deserves a two hour finale for this season.  Stretching the show out for two more weeks in just brutal
4434  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Recap 5-7-2007 on: May 07, 2007, 02:42:11 PM
Played some Medieval Total War 2 landed.  Landed 3k worth of troops in Antioch and took it from some rebels.  The Mongols and Bzyantine are currently attacking me to take the city.  Fun times!

It's parody.  These things are to be expected with a major election looming.

On a side note I just heard the Obama just had to get Secret Service protection. His camp isn't confirming if he was threatened, but me think that he has.  I think this is the reason Colin Powell didn't run.  Cause some nut wanted him dead due to the color of his skin
4436  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: spider-man 3 reviews? on: May 04, 2007, 04:13:21 PM

You know what is strange though is last night I loaded up the game and of course downloaded the patch, and I had trouble with an NPC being invisible but still attacking me with his bow and sword. I wasn't sure if he was simply stealthed or not, but my gut feeling was that it was a new bug from the patch. Anyone else experience this?

Actually, there is a quest where the whole town is invisible, so it might not have been a bug
4438  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (4/30) on: May 01, 2007, 04:40:40 PM
Waiting to get feedback on Spiderman 3.  If it holds up I'll get it.  other than that nothing


Thinking of getting UFO as well.  Some of the early buzz is positive.  Might go for the d2d version from Matrix

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.
