Adam - take the goddamn job.  Seriously dude, it's a whole hell of a lot better than your wafer job AND it's working with/around video games.

It's what you've always wanted to do - have a job positioned around video games.

I hope you're not even considering to turn down the job.

PLUS you'll actually be working normal hours and not killing yourself working graveyard shifts.  And, not to mention, those crazy weird things on your knuckles will actually heal and look normal.

I would like to know what happens (exactly) when this button gets pressed.

Who exactly receives the "report" ?

I am going to test it out for myself on Scott for even hinting I was talking about someone other than Kate Beckinsale in the 2142 thread, but I would like to know how it actually works behind the scenes.

Are we allowed to report stupid comments? 

Is there a way to check how many times we/others have been reported?  Who's winning?

I have all of a sudden become fascinated with this whole process.

Thanks.




I reported you so we could test this out  icon_lol paranoid nod

Is it possible to connect an Xbox 360 to a PC rig. I would love to get an Xbox;however, between my wife's movies & soap's, and my 3 kids on the Gamecube, I get "0" time on the family room TV   crybaby

Yes, the 360(I'm assuming you are talking 360) can be hooked up to your PC monitor.  There should be several threads on this forum relating to it.  Last one was a guy heading off to college if I'm not mistaken

So, I'm playing Counterstrike: Source and naturally the first server I join is near full.  I join the terrorist side and realize that I'm surrounded by "Nigger hating Jew" "Nigger Swing" "Hung Nig" "-_NickNig_-" and "BlackJesus".  Wow.  Just wow....  Before I can even log out, the chat is already filled with random and pointless racism and talk about "Yo, I'm gonna log out and smoke a bowl". 

I hit the next server and I don't see any racist names.  Well that is a start.  A few uneventful rounds go by and I'm low on cash.  I switch to pistols and armor, but apparently I'm not moving fast enough.  Over in-game voice I get "Move your ass you fucking stupid monkey nigger!".  Just wow...  I make some comments about keeping their pointless racist comments to themselves.  They really come out of the woodwork now and just lay into me with racist bullshit.  I disconnect.

I hit my third server of the night and apparently I've found a pot smoking clan.   Everyone's name is something like "Resin_Man" "Budz" or the like.  You can imagine that voice and text chat was all about how to use your pool cover to grow your own pot. 

Seriously.  What the hell?  Is everyone on the damned Internet a racist druggie??

Add the internet+ anonymity+ youth+ lack of parental supervision= what you got.   Big part is the anonymity.  Most wouldn't be caught dead talking like that around parents or adults. Sadly, that why I avoid open servers

Thoughts and Impressions after kicking Soulchilde's ass ... err, after playing for a bit:

1) The game is pretty much no-frills, no extras, straight up, poker.
2) The interface works.  There is nothing super innovative that I (we) saw, but it is certainly serviceable, and non-combersome for the most part.
3) Betting is easy, and the use of triggers was a good move by the developers.  
4) Countach set up our room and between he and I did some inviting.  It seemed to work pretty well, although Grue got in without an invite.  Either blind luck or his preferred player list got him into the room with us.  I would suggest if there are enough people online (on your friends list) at once, making a private room might be better.  That of course will depend on how long we all are interested in playing.
5) The chatting and stuff makes the game more fun.  Without it, playing for fake money, I'm not sure it would hold alot of people's interest for very long unless they are big Hold'Em fans, in which case, I think it wouldn't matter.
6) There is a single player component, as well as multiplayer, each with different play types including tournaments, which is cool.

Here are some highlights from the first game I was in:

1) I ended the game with more money than Soulchilde.
2) That's really the main highlight as far as I'm concerned.   icon_smile

Was fun.  I will play the game more, but mostly due to the genuinely cool people we have on our forums.  The game itself is fine, but I think unless you're in the mood to play, sit around and bullshit with the guys, etc... it wouldn't be something you would race home to do.  

Things we pretty much agreed on:

1) Getting and using the camera while playing this game could be painful.  Noone really wants to see Soulchilde's face.
2) The Ravens are going to win 10 games this season... or so someone predicted.
3) KeySJU is going to buy a racing wheel when he sees it on the shelf for Forza, even though he will tell you he won't.
4) YellowKing will tell you he "stinks at this game", then proceed to win two hands in a row and run off with your money.
5) I fold alot, and when I actually do win hands, they are for some of the smallest amounts of money imaginable.
6) ping is pretty good, but will try to get you talking about other things so you don't notice how many hands he's winning.
7) Harkonis bought a fighting stick to play Street Fighter II, and plays alot.  If he challenges you to a duel, you have been warned.
8 ) Quite a few people from our forums like to visit Alaska.

On a closing note, I think 10 to a table would be even better than 8. 

 icon_wink





ALL LIES!  except the part where I left the table with less money than Poncho  saywhat   Anyway, looks like this will be a good game for awhile so I'll win my money back.  Luck was on his side last night  mad

Great fun all!!!

It really depends on how will Nintendo and Sony implement thier free service.   Live is a awesome service and imo worth the yearly fee I pay.  Now, if Sony and Nintendo offer something like Live! gold for free then I can see it being a big deal.  let's not forget that Live! Silver is free and just can't play MP games

Think I will be sending this back to Gamefly.  I just can't get this game and I LOVED Resident Evil.   They made some design decision that makes the game rather unfun for me.   thumbsdown on this game for me
Well, I think the first problem is that you're comparing it to Resident Evil.   retard


Well, considering it is a Survival Horror game what else can I compare it too.  The game is quite unwieldy for me in it's current form.  Not having fun cause of the design decisions.    I see the greatness in the game, but for me the underlying issues I have just isn't fun for me.  I really have no problem with the save system, but escort mission are crappy , aiming issues with guns and not being able to choose my own leveling path are just some of my issues. 

Again, the game isn't for me in it's current form.  I haven't sent it back yet as I might try to give it one more go if I can force myself to load it up again tonight

Not sure if I really like this game.  I am tryng to find the fun, but the poor aim ability is not very good in my opinion. Before anyone asked I switched it to camera aim and it still sucks.  I'm just not finiding it much fun.   I'm finding that I have to force myself to play which is never a good thing.  Think I am glad I rented this from gamefly.


Spoiler for Hiden:
I let one of my escortees die as I got tired of him lagging behind. The dude Aaron in the Women's Clothing store


Also, I don't like the random level up skill.  I would rather pick what I want to level instead of the game doing it for me.

Again, I think I am glad that I rented the game instead of buying

If you choose to use this button, it will undoubtedly ruin the charm of all your posts.

I haven't played the game, but, IMO, the worst part of the save system is the "one game per storage device" part. So if my brother buys the game, I can't play it without getting a memory card. Lame.

Hold up - so are you saying that, well, in my case: my brother and I 'share' an Xbox 360.  I can't have a save game since he already has one?


I'm thinking it's per profile.  So if your Brother has his own profile he should be able to save....I think that's the way it works
