This Heroes sing-along was kind of cute.

The "Heroes vs. NFL legends" wasn't bad either. The bit where Elway shows up was pretty funny.

There were a few good ones, but that careerbuilder one where they kept repeating the same scenes over and over sucked giant sweaty donkey balls.  I wanted to ragesmash whoever came up with that.

It was until they got to the koala punching. That was hilarious.

Really, it was. I went and watched it again online and my wife calls in, "are you laughing at furry animals getting punched?"  And I said, "but it's a stuffed animal. With glasses. And a cup of coffee. And a British accent." I mean, it's just so absurd you can't help but laugh.

The absolute BEST one of the night was the Pepsi MACGRUBER commercial. PEPSUBER!



Really? We thought that one was a bad SNL skit. The fact that Richard Dean Anderson was in it gave it a little respectability.

Quote from: Teggy on January 28, 2009, 07:50:34 PM

OK, allow me to get all geeky here. Isn't the top picture the NCC-1701-A, which they finished building in Star Trek: TMP? The appropriate comparison for the bottom picture would be the NCC-1701, which was in the tv show.


The Enterprise from Star Trek: The Motion Picture was the original tv-series enterprise after a significant refit that included upgraded engines and some other major modifications (such as routing the phasers through the warp drive). That same ship was used in the battle against Khan in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and was destroyed by Kirk & Co. to kill a bunch of Klingons in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. The NCC-1701-A didn't appear until the very end of Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and saw action in the god-awful Star Trek V: What the hell are we doing? as well as the far-superior Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

So the chart's not really inappropriate, since they had to choose between comparing the newest movie-ship against either the tv-show version of the original Enterprise or the movie-version of that same ship.

OK, I hooked up my PS2 so I am in. I didn't realize the game had a progressive scan mode so I guess I could have hooked it up to the hdtv, but no matter. Is this whole game letterboxed or do I have my PS2 set up wrong? I don't recall from the other time I played.

Oh, that's fantastic, I figured it would be much later.

I won't be able to make it until later on Saturday... around 12ish most likely  icon_frown

12 pacific? That's really not that bad either.

Shall we say 12:30pm PST/3:30pm EST?

Works for me. How does partying up work? I'm pretty noobish on the PS3.

I'll know by the end of the weekend if I'll be joining as I have to decide whether I'll be hooking up my PS2 again or not (darn non-BC PS3). My PC is good enough to run Deus Ex, but not this (Dell notebook circa 2002).

7545  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Just got a credit from Circuit City on: January 30, 2009, 04:59:23 PM
Kind of surprising - I just got a $21.99 credit from Circuit City. I haven't returned anything to them recently, so the only thing I can think of is they are crediting me for the 1400 MS points that I was supposed get when I bought Gears of War 2 from them (the cards were on backorder at the time). That's a $19.99 item, so close I guess.

Very surprised that that would be high enough on the list to get recovery for.

I can't believe they are doing it again so soon. Here's the info from the website:

Quote
In lieu of the festivities which will no-doubt keep most of you in front of your TV's all weekend, we've decided to initiate yet another weekend of Double-XP Jan 30 Feb 1 to compliment The Big Game!

Not only will you be receiving Double-XP, but we're introducing two new playlists to the Xbox 360 and PS3 by popular request: Team Tactical (4v4) and Mercenary TDM (no parties allowed)! Team Tactical will pit two teams of four against each other in a random rotation of all the Team-Based gametypes.

It all starts tomorrow morning PST (Friday the 30th)

I doubt I will take advantage of this one like the last, but I'm sure I'll get some rounds in.
7547  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Amazon shipping mechanics on: January 29, 2009, 09:04:17 PM
Very interesting - I ordered 2 items from Amazon on Monday using super-saver shipping, but got the items overnight. I looked on the label and it turns out the box came from Nashua, NH. It was shipped by A-1 Couriers, who I've never heard of. I placed another order on Tuesday night, but that one has yet to ship. Wikipedia only lists these places as fulfillment centers:

        * Arizona, USA: Phoenix, Goodyear
        * Delaware, USA: New Castle
        * Indiana, USA: Whitestown, Munster
        * Kansas, USA: Coffeyville
        * Kentucky, USA: Campbellsville, Hebron (near CVG), Lexington, and Louisville
        * Nevada, USA: Fernley and Red Rock (near 4SD)
        * Pennsylvania, USA: Carlisle, Chambersburg, Hazleton, and Lewisberry
        * Texas, USA: Dallas/Fort Worth
        * Ontario, Canada: Mississauga (a Canada Post facility)

So I don't know if Wikipedia just doesn't have all the info or what. I also don't know why they immediately chose to ship out my items rather than wait. The first shipment was a PS3 headset and an XBOX 360 controller battery, and the second shipment was a 360 battery quick charge kit, so you'd think if they had the first stuff on hand, they'd have the second.

Quote from: disarm on January 29, 2009, 12:33:40 AM

and a statement from Harmonix over at Joystiq...

Quote from: Harmonix
There has been a lot of discussion over a recent article that stated "MTV said it plans to increase the number of available songs this year to as many as 5,000."

In an effort to clarify and put some context around that number, please see the original quote on ArsTechnica.com from an interview with Alex Rigopulos, CEO and co-founder of Harmonix, during this year's CES.

In that article, Alex stated:

"That said, one of the great promises of the (Rock Band) catalog moving forward, as the catalog expands from 500 songs to 5,000 songs or whatever in the coming years, is that we're going to be less constrained from a genre standpoint, and I think you will see us starting to branch out into... whether it's country or R&B and jazz or funk, or things of that sort. With the critical mass of the "rock" core covered, of course we'll keep expanding it, but the critical mass is covered, so now we can start to branch off in ways that haven't made sense in the past but will make sense moving forward."

nice job of taking a quote out of context yet again...

That's beyond taking a quote out of context, that's completely ignoring what he said and making something up.

Looks like we are getting another decent hit on Wednesday... I was really hoping for a melt-off before the next round. Since we were away during the storm right around New Year's and couldn't clean it up fully, my driveway still has a layer I haven't been able to clean off, unless I was willing to go at it with the ice pick.

I have one of these (also 16 years old, and darker in color):

One of the goals I have never achieved is finishing a turn-based rpg, so I don't have large amounts of time sunk there. Longest on single player for a game is probably GTA IV, where I spent over 60 hours on the story. Longest SP and MP is probably CoD5, where I am over 100 hours and counting.
