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.

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.
1132  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.

Aside from price considerations, there are a lot of great mods out now for it on the PC whereas you only get Bethesda's lackluster official mods on the 360.
1142  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).

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.

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.

Sorta embarassing that it's getting an M over tits, and not the well-rotted head/desecrated corpses/heavily mutilated and tortured people/fetus and or baby remains stuff that appears near the end of the Dark Brotherhood quests.


At least going off of what people on QT3 are saying, the game will remain M even with the "nipple" removed, suggesting that it is in fact the gore/violence that is the real issue.
Ah, that would make sense.

I mean, I really enjoyed all the disturbing stuff in the Dark Brotherhood endgame as well as the other creepy moments sprinkled throughout, (like the town of Hackdirt, for example), but if that stuff's not M, I'm not really sure what is.
I could never figure out what to do with Hackdirt. I found the city, I knew what they were, I killed half of them, but never figured out exactly what it was supposed to be.


In one of the towns (Chorral, I believe) you eventually hear a rumor about the missing daughter of the local trading goods shop. You get a quest from the shop's owner to go to Hackdirt to find the daughter. While there, you discover that they're involved in some odd stuff.

A little OT, but in New Orleans there is/was (I don't know if it's still there post-Katrina) a meat company named Wagner's Meat. Their slogan was "You can't beat Wagner's Meat". I guess Wagner was a very frustrated individual.

2 & 1/4 hours of content for $18-20 seems fairly good. I've paid as much or more for a DVD of a 2 hour movie plenty of times and I rarely watch the special features, so I don't count that in the price for myself.

There's a difference between being in Germany and being in Iraq for 6-7 months out of the year. Besides, I know most of the cops here on Davis-Monthan AFB, and none of them are happy with what they do. Having followed the life of Drazzil for the past 4-5 years, I feel reasonably sure that he could do better.

Speaking as a staff sergeant in the Air Force, I can tell you that Arowyn is absolutely correct; the TIs are there to mold you into an airman. Everything in Basic (at least while I was there) was designed to break you down and rebuild you so that you were able to function in a military environment. It's not brainwashing or anything, it's just them trying to teach you how to work in a chain of command and execute orders without question. My suggestion for you is to keep your mouth shut and your eyes open. The squeaky wheel gets all the shitty extra duties and a lot more attention from the TIs. Just learn what you need to do and do it without question. It's the ones that think they're smarter than their leaders that get into trouble. If you follow instructions, it's really not bad at all. I got a lot more sleep in basic than I did at tech school.

BTW, what's your job? If you went in as "open general", I hope you enjoy being a cop. Either way, best of luck, and we'll see you on the other side.

Quote from: "weleavefossils"
Quote from: "Suitably Ironic Moniker"
See, I like that it's exploring one aspect of the story. To try to encompass too much would require even more generalization than I would guess this movie will have. Hey, you want a film that's emotional and all-encompassing, I'll bet you could pick up Pearl Harbor really cheap :wink: .


we'll I would prefer neither.  I would rather wait to actually see the movie before I would debate any further, but do you really think there is much they will touch on that you don't already know?  It just seems that maybe if they did interview people in the movie that were family members or involved in some way, sure we might learn something from it.  But at this moment (based off the trailer) it looks like a bad tv movie.

And for the record, I walked out of Pearl Harbor.  Baaaaad movie slywink


Well, I think how much you or I know about a subject is somewhat immaterial to the quality or the relevance of the film. It may be exploring larger human themes via the events of Flight 93, which is what a lot of good films try to achieve. I hate to keep going back to Saving Private Ryan, but I'm at the tail end of a 12 hour mid-shift and my brain is somewhat fried. SPR wasn't just about D-Day, an event that many of us have studied through our schooling and regardless, is well-documented in history books. It explores the themes of the meaning of sacrifice and duty. To be perfectly honest, I didn't even really like this film aside from the opening 20 minutes, but it is pretty well-regarded by many, so I guess it was successful. Flight 93 could very well flesh out the human side of the story if the creators did in fact work with the families of the victims. By displaying the people behind the events of that flight, it may be able to elucidate a more universal meaning. Perhaps it will show that it's better to fight for one's beliefs even when death is certain, or the bonds that form in desparate situations. It may also feature big asplosions and really shiny box-cutters. I honestly have no idea which way it's going with its characterizations. I suppose my main point is that I'm willing to have an open mind before I dismiss it as an insult to the victims of 9/11 or irrelevant.

I think it's best to let the people who want to make these films go ahead and make them. If the market is not ready, they are the ones who will take the financial hit, and maybe even the public relations damage to their careers(primarily the actors I would think).


Yes, and I can go ahead and still say that it's offensive that these people are doing this.


I think that he's stating his opinion like you are with your opinion. I don't read that as him telling you to shut up.
