1081  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Snakes. On a Plane. Impressions. on: August 19, 2006, 06:36:57 PM

Quote from: corruptrelic on August 19, 2006, 11:30:37 AM

I've seen a couple previews saying it had an older guy using the PSP in it and a young kid using the DS.. sort of showing Nintendo with a "kiddy" image and the PSP for older gamers.
Any comments on the videogame-related stuff in the movie?


There was a guy playing the PSP and there was mention of Playstation and XBox, but there was neither any mention or sightings of any Nintendo product. Oops, spoiler!

Hells yeah, that was anentertaining flick. My friend and I walked out saying that it definitely lived up to the hype. Not much else to say but that it was probably the best movie I've seen in the month of August in a looooooooooooong time.

Do you buy movies on DVD? If so, isn't it more of a value to get 13 episodes, plus the original miniseries for $45 on Amazon than a 2 hour film for $20? I understand not wanting to plunk down $80 for those HBO sets, but BSG is pretty cheap considering.

BTW, I'm sure you all have heard that Computer Games Magazine is launching a new mag just for MMORPGs.

They're calling it "Massive" (really).

That just kills me every time I hear it.   :lol:

Out of curiosity, do you guys actually use this anymore?  I can't remember the last time I had a *.rar to unpack but it was quite a while ago (and yes, I realize it works on other file formats also but I don't use those either).


I know a lot of Oblivion mods use .rar.

Dude, you said you own the game, why not try it out for a week. I never get why people post threads about games they already own asking if it's worth it to play. You own it, play it and find out. I don't mean to come off like an asshole, but the game won't bite your hand off if you use it!

Since his copy is still sealed it sounds like he found it, bought it and is trying to decide if he really wants to open it up or maybe take it back and exchange it for something else.  He probably can't return it once its opened.

Seems reasonable.


If that's the case, then I can see his point; I may have misread it.

As for my impressions, I love it. It really is hard to describe, it's just that I'm pretty attached to my little town after a month and a half of play. I'm starting to invest in turnips to increase my bells (cash) so that I can remodel faster and my museum is getting pretty full with all of the donations I've made (you can donate bugs/butterflies, fish, fossils and artwork to the museum). My town is full of characters I like (if one of my favorites tries to move, I talk him/her out of it). I guess what I like is that there's always something new. Just this week, one of the townspeople who my character is friends with invited himself over to my place, which was unexpected. Also, a few neighbors gave me their picture because we were such good friends. I like all of the special events that come up and all of the visitors that come to the town, especially K.K. Rider, the little dog who plays guitar at the cafe once a week. It's a goofy little game, but I find myself hooked on it more than any of the others that I also play.

Well, let's see, with:

Deep Labyrinth, Harvest Moon, Star Fox Command, Contact, Touch Detective, Scurge: Hive, Final Fantasy III & Zelda in the same week and the new Phoenix Wright all in the next 3 1/2 months, I'll be very busy. Today I played my DS in the office while waiting for a couple of people to change into their workout clothes. I've played it while waiting at the DMV and I play it at least a couple of times a day while at home. I looooooooove it.

Because..

#1 - It's way too soon. They haven't even give the PSP enough time to gather a large enough consumer base to bringing out a new PSP already.


DS Lite was released in the same timeframe as a PSP2 (if a PSP2 is indeed coming out). DS and iPod owners don't throw out their old systems once a redesign comes out. It's just how portable electronics work.  


The DS Lite isn't a sequel to the original DS, just a revamp. The PSP 2 would most likely be more advanced and I doubt you'd be able to play PSP 2 games on the OG PSP.

Ultima V is my all-time favorite. It had the right amount of darkness mixed in with the classic Ultima gameplay. Morrowind is my favorite in terms of exploring a strange and new world.

My addiction to Animal Crossing on both the GC and DS has grown, so I'm giving those a lot of my time this weekend (I'm fudging the date on my GC version so I can play more). Otherwise, it's Titan Quest on the PC and Trace Memory on the DS.
1104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dear Sony: please go screw yourselves.... on: June 28, 2006, 11:22:28 PM
Wow, one game without a number following it. I'm not one who believes that all sequels are derivative crap and I understand why Sony would want to roll out the big names at launch, but that's one of the reasons I love my DS Lite; I'm picking up original games that just wouldn't make it on the non-handheld market.

ETA: Whoops; I don't keep up on PS3, so I didn't consider that his post was hypothetical.

Quote from: "Suitably Ironic Moniker"
There were multicell storms moving up from Mexico through Tucson and Phoenix due to the SE flow created by the low pressure system located over the Baja peninsula pulling moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and southern Mexico. The typical monsoonal pattern (which exists mostly from late June to early September) occurs when a high pressure system sets up over the UT-AZ-CO-NM border (which is a called a "Four Courners High) and effectively does the same thing as the low to our SW is doing right now. So yes, we do get rain in AZ.

Nah, just an Air Force Meteorologist here in Tucson.

1114  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Oblivion - The Thieves Den on: May 23, 2006, 05:36:25 AM
It's basically just a cool-looking house mod that is for thieves. There are no real quests involved except for killing a few skeletons and fixing up the joint with a crew and some vendors. It's okay, but I would really like for them to actually offer up a mod that adds a nice quest line. I already have a few other houses (including Frostcrag Spire).

1116  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is Sony done with PSP? on: May 09, 2006, 08:55:21 AM
I have no facts, but yeah right. I've heard that the UMDs might go away, but there's no way Sony would put all of this effort and money into breaking into the handheld world only to give up after a year. They're far too invested in it, especially since the PS3s are going to be so expensive that it'll drive away the casual buyer.

If they don't put in a better practice mode, I'm gonna be bitter and may end up skipping the sequel.

Hard is still too hard for me and as there's no way for me to practice Hammer ons and Pull offs except in the middle of the song, I don't see myself getting better.

Please please please.

Edit: As for the songs, I think they could have done a better Black Sabbath song.  Maybe they're only sticking with Ozzy BS, but try to tell me that Mob Rules wouldn't be a much more killer BS song than War Pigs.

I like 'You really Got me' but don't recognize any of the others.  What?! No AC/DC?

I never would have pegged you as a Black Sabbath fan.


Sabbath was all about the Jesus.

Quote from: "Dafones"
Still don't see Hanks as the lead character, and I remember being surprised by the initial announcement. Don't know why Brosnan always seemed to fit, despite the nationality. Maybe it's just his composure.

Oh well. Should be an entertaining movie, even though the book is over-rated. (Me troll. Me slink under bridge now.)


I agree with you; I'm looking forward to seeing it so I can stop feeling guilty about not feeling guilty about not being able to make it through the book. It almost read like a screenplay, so it might as well be seen as a film.
