Man i was expecting cool lists from people to steal ideas for my list that has to be completed tonight.  Nothing much has been posted.  icon_neutral

Gamers are hard to buy for.  Other than games (and socks) we usually don't have a huge list of stuff we want. smile


I have to agree with this.  There is nothing I want.  I told my sister to get me band of brothers on DVD and my GF I told her just to get me a few Kangols

Meh, he was at a comedy club.  He went dirty and took it too far.  I seriously think that words like this only have power if you grant it such.  I don't put a lot of stock into it...

+1, if Chris Rock did this, would anyone care?

You sir have a point.  (did I just say that??  eek)

I just don't see any way a white man can call a black person a nigger and have it not be a huge problem.  Soulchilde maybe could back me up on this.  Chris Rock might be able to get away with it but there are cultural complexities at work that go way beyond "Why can't I say it if he can?"

I don't think there's any equivalent word that someone could call a white person that has the same impact, the same history, the same insult behind it.

Warning has it about right. I really don't want to delve into to this or start a big PC debate, but one of the worse thing a white person can say to a black person is call him a nigger.  Even 30-40 years since the Civil Rights movement the word just has to much negative weight to it.


All that being said if the hecklers started it with racial slurs than they should have been man enough to deal with the reprecussions.  Don't dish it if you can't take it.

Actually, if Chris Rock started throwing off anti-semetic slurs in a fit of rage I think people would still be upset.

Bottom fell out already?  I think the 360 marlet from last year helped fuel what you are seeing with the PS3.  With the 360 out for a full year the PS# has actual competition.  I think someone at MS just got a raise if the PS3 looks like a failure after this launch

I've posted a few pictures at Octopus Overlords of some of my newest toys (such as my DVD changer and Fireball organization system), but even my spending habits are dwarfed in comparison.  Granted, I might be able to potentially spend on the level of Hetz, but I'm not sure I want to, especially when seeing some of the "gems" he has on his shelf.  Stealth in high definition and a copy of Madden 07 for each console?

I have Madden 07 for the Wii and PS3. Both are VERY different. I don't have it for the 360 anymore. Also, I liked Stealth.  Anyway I'm taking the pics down now...cause this topic is veering way of course.

Hetz, I think most people, I hope, was just giving you a good natured ribbing.  Again, if you can do it and I say do it.  You are obviously a well adjusted person..excpet when it comes to Bethsoft products  Tongue

Enjoy it to all those that get it.  I'm pretty happy with my 360 at the moment and I probably won't get a PS3 for quite abit.  The older I get the more I can't justify the cost unless I had alot of disposable income

If they had gone with a cartridge based system we wouldn't be getting 1.8gb discs (the DS is stuck at 150mb) and the graphics, levels, and voice would have taken a major hit.
You really think a massive game like GTA would have fit on a little cartridge?
Personally I'm happy that they embraced the future by going with a disc-based format.

I like how people out there are saying the PSP already failed and yet it's still alive and kicking. Now if they said the n-gage or that other thing from the swedish mafia failed, then I'd have to say they're right, but the PSP is still alive and well with plenty of great games out and still coming!  icon_biggrin

iI'm going to use  something that Devil normally say for Nintendo.  Sony is making money.  Will they drive Nintendo out of the hand-held market.  Not going to happen, but the PSP2 will cetainly build on what was presented witht he PSP

4500  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Ultimately, in a couple years, which console will have won this generation? on: November 14, 2006, 05:52:31 PM
Japan:

PS3
Wii
360

America:

360
PS3
Wii


PS3 and Wii will always dominate the Japanese market.  I think the PS3 has priced itself out of the casual market  in America and the Wii will be seen as a gimmick by most like the GC.   I think the 360 will win out in NA

I love how this thread has been reduced to two pages of people's impressions of acquiring the game itself rather than playing it.   saywhat


Your right.  My initial immpression after 30-45 minute of playing.

I won't mention the graphic much, but I play on a HDTV and they look awesome, but Arkon who I was playing SP Coop with was playing on the standard def tv and he was ohh and ahh over the visuals

Gameplay so far is a nice change of pace.  This isn't Halo or even GRAW.  Shoot and sccot is very important.  If you charge a enemy you will be killed.  The AI so far seems able to flank and react to us flanking.  I haven't seen too many brain dead AI yet.

I haven't tried MP yet other than SP coop, but I hope to get to it tonite.

That's my brief impressions after 30-45 of playing.

Well, I was able to pick up my pre-order from Gamestop today and that's here in Baltimore, but my buddy who works in Silver Springs couldn't get his cause his orders was stuck in Tenn.   Anyway, he is on the way to Best Buy to get it since they have it in stock

Btw, Arkon is a evil man.  We are playing SP Coop and we decide to take a break.  While playing I get a voice message from papasmurf saying, "Damn! Hard-core!  We might play MP later you up for some?"   Seems that Arkon set our very first play thru on the hardcore difficulty.   eek   No wonder I was getting my ass kicked. 

The game is awesome and it will take some time for me to get used to the cover  and shot playstyle.    All other shooters haven't prepared me for this, but that's a good thing
4511  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Genji [PS3] Review-Hi2u Bad Launch Titles on: November 08, 2006, 03:36:27 PM
Honestly, I think the 360 launch titles were also pretty weak.  Off the top of my head NFS:MW , CoD2 and PGR are the best of the 360 launch titles.  As we can see it takes awhile for the killer apps to come out, i.e Gears of War

Picked it up around 1:30PM. Brought my 360 into work and hooked it up to our HDTV. Been playing for about 2-3 hours now, both SP and SP-COOP. I like how you can play SP and then continue via COOP later. Graphics are amazing!
I will probably leave the 360 here until Friday and play in between jobs.

That's it?? Tongue  How 's  the gameplay?  Is the AI team-mates brain dead?   More impressions!!!
