this one is gone!
282  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass effect 2 Launch and impressions (the REAL One) on: February 06, 2010, 02:47:31 PM
Jersoc's post mirrors my own opinions perfectly. I was kinda pissed that they just removed the Mako entirely, as opposed to fixing it. It felt less like I was exploring the galaxy and more like I was a dock worker sorting bins of product or something with the whole scanning bit.

Anyone else get crazy eye from the insanely small text? Granted I'm on an SDTV via composite, but it was still wicked small(much as Dead Rising was). I got a couple of serious headaches after playing for a decent stretch.

All that nothwithstanding, it was a solid experience. Nobody does cinematic games quite like Bioware.

maybe, lemme check into it and see if it's something I'll dig. I think a buddy of mine played that one.

Would like to swap for Bayonetta or AC2 for the 360

Are you friendless or something? We spend our holidays with many of our friends, so much so that we have traditions in place and know in advance who is making/bringing what.

Plus, it's not too late to put up a tree. Start a tradition of buying each other an ornament every year maybe, do some stocking stuffers, make an awesome xmas lasagna, buy some weird winter beer, so walk around looking at lights, send out some cards, volunteer at a nursing home.

You post makes me sad

he turned in the first draft back in May, so I'm guessing it'll be next spring at the earliest
293  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: So I have this backlog of games... on: August 22, 2009, 12:40:23 PM
my buddy and I have been playing quite a bit of SR2 co-op on the 360, so that one would get my vote. I got some achievement for playing alot, maybe 50 hours or so.

anyway, if you want to play that one you can look me up, my gamertag is WorkingMike. My other votes go to Kingdom Hearts and Munch's Oddysee
294  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Need a mystery book recommendation on: August 07, 2009, 06:53:51 PM
I really enjoyed all of Donald Westlake's novels over the years, particularly the Parker novels he wrote under Richard Stark. They start back around 61 or so, but there were a few newer entries as well.

Lawrence Block is good, I dig the Keller books he wrote the last few years.

I just read KOP and ExKOP by Hammond. Technically Sci-Fi, but can hold it's own among the hardboiled crowd.

The Kurtz novels by Dan Simmons were really good.

I give two enthusiastic thumbs up to both the Repairman Jack books and Lansdale's stuff.

Charlie Huston. You may not dig the vampire novels he wrote (which are excellent), but his other novels would fit the bill.
295  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Peter Pan got married! on: July 28, 2009, 08:49:24 PM
I see him around town sometimes, at the flea market, the mall, etc...

He's a pretty nice guy, just odd

C&C Kanes Wrath
Jericho


Looking for:
Saints Row 2
Far Cry 2
Brothers in Arms: Hell's Highway
Left 4 Dead
Halo Wars

Saints Row 2 is topping my list, so i figured I'd try here first before trading em in to Gamestop

299  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Playing older back-log...... Dungeon Siege on: June 14, 2009, 02:41:42 AM
the multiplayer world was much more fun than the single player campaign, at least to me.
300  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: anyone have a copy of Vagrant Story? on: April 24, 2009, 02:08:05 AM
that's a good point. I really regret selling my copy a few years back and i'm certain that other people feel similarly.
301  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / anyone have a copy of Vagrant Story? on: April 23, 2009, 01:39:25 AM
I know it's a shot in the dark. I'd like to rip it to my PSP's memory stick, I really enjoyed this one.
302  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 Aaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhhhhhhh!!! on: April 18, 2009, 01:22:57 PM
yeah, I would just say RROD and send it in. I doubt they even test the units they repair.
303  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: LF: Dune games on: April 17, 2009, 05:34:28 PM
I have a jewel case copy of Emperor with all the cd's. I'll have to look around for the manual, not sure if I have it. The cd key is on the case.

Anyways, it's yours if you want it, just send me a pm with your addy and i'll mail it out. I'll take an older game in trade if you want, but i'm just as happy to pass it along as well.

304  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: Fallout 3 FT on: March 12, 2009, 07:41:09 PM
sorry, for the 360 smile
305  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Fallout 3 FT on: March 12, 2009, 07:40:21 PM
for your Far Cry 2
306  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Most disturbing movie you've seen? on: February 23, 2009, 11:29:41 PM
there is a movie called Vulgar that stuck with me. My wife had nightmares for a few nights just from my description of the film. The guy who played Dante in Clerks is the protagonist.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120467/

I'll 2nd Happiness. I haven't been able to look at Dylan Baker as anything else since I watched that one.

307  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What kinds of interests make you a "nerd" or "dork"? Why? on: February 23, 2009, 07:20:33 PM
I think that in order for you to be in the Nerd or Geek category there needs to be a distinct lack of social skills. People who have interesting hobbies that they delve into while maintaining a social life = Fascinating/eclectic souls. People who can ONLY relate to their hobbies and people who share those interests = Nerds/Geeks. I know math nerds, beer nerds, tattoo geeks. It's a matter of obsession.

In my mind there is a distinct line you cross before you become "that guy"
308  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New Tattoo on: February 23, 2009, 07:11:54 PM
super clean, who did it?
309  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Most disturbing movie you've seen? on: February 23, 2009, 07:10:57 PM
btw, Funny Games is a remake. The original is a little better in my opinion.
310  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Most disturbing movie you've seen? on: February 23, 2009, 07:08:53 PM
do NOT watch http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0856288/

Frontiers was pretty rough too http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0814685/

There is an older film called Man Bites Dog. If you can find the uncensored version of it, it's worth a watch. More morally disturbing than graphic.

There is a great picture you can get instantly on Netflix called Dead Man's Shoes that lingers with you.
311  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Books - Song of Fire & Ice, Davinci Code, Questions... on: February 19, 2009, 04:31:40 PM
if you are digging Song of Fire and Ice, then I would also recommend the series The First Law by Joe Abercrombie - i think you would dig it.

You also might want to check out Matthew Reilly, his novels are fun. He is to writing what Frazetta is to painting, where he constantly throws you into the peak moment of action. Pretty implausible, but wicked entertaining.

312  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii games to play with my non-gamer girlfriend on: February 16, 2009, 06:18:03 PM
my wife is a non-gamer and she LOVES Mario Party

lately she's been all about Outdoor Adventure Challenge (i think thats the name....the one with the DDR pad)
313  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Cigars on: February 10, 2009, 02:48:00 PM
Joe Cigar has the Indian Tabac Super Fuerte on sale today for 30 bucks per 20. With SCHIP going into effect, this is an excellent price on a great cigar.

It's one of Rocky Patel's blends

314  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Woman w/8 babies..already had 6.... on: February 10, 2009, 02:41:58 PM
How can you give individual attention to that many children?

Maybe she can give some to Angelina Jolie
315  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New DVD/BD releases 2/3: "I like to watch" on: February 06, 2009, 02:29:04 PM
Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist was maybe the worst film I have watched all year. I think it was my moment for "I just don't understand the kids today".

I gave up on Kevin Smith awhile back, so I think I'll skip Zack and Miri.

Being There is a favorite of mine, its a wonderful film.
316  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Most underrated 360 game in your opinion on: February 03, 2009, 09:04:18 PM
Viking - fun hack and slash, I was pleasantly surprised at this one

The Simpsons Game - the gameplay suffered in parts, but overall I really enjoyed it

Too Human - I thought it was a pretty good game, undeserving of the poor scores it recieved
317  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Budweiser: King of Beers or Cow Pee in a Bottle? on: January 22, 2009, 06:03:11 PM
buy your dad Czechvar if you can find it. It's Budweiser, but decent

My beer of choice is Rochefort (which has disappeared around here lately), Westmalle, Old Chub, or Sam Smiths Taddy Porter

For years I was a Shiner Bock man.
318  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: What are the "must-watch/must-have" television series on DVD? on: January 22, 2009, 05:53:16 PM
Sleeper Cell is a particularly standout show

Dead Like Me

Rules of Engagement

Pushing Daisies was a favorite is our house

Six Feet Under

Dexter

we have Secret Diary of a Call Girl on deck, starring Billie Piper(for you Dr Who fans out there). I'll get back about how that one is

oh, and Coupling is one of the funniest shows i've ever seen

BTW, I heard that AMC is making a mini-series of The Prisoner.
319  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Force Unleashed on: January 20, 2009, 10:38:21 PM
so I finally got around to this little gem of a title. What the hell happened there? They had a great story, cool force powers, interesting locales and managed to somehow forget to add fun.

Did anyone developing it actually play the game?

I try to finish all my games, sometimes more than once, but man - this one feels like work.
320  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Best Mafia/Mob Movies? on: January 17, 2009, 04:08:51 PM
A History of Violence (as well as Eastern Promises)

Get Carter (the original one, with Michael Caine)

Payback

Road to Perdition

The Krays (I never found this on dvd)

Gangs of New York

Layer Cake

Bugsy

The Usual Suspects

Sexy Beast

Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead
The Long Good Friday

Man on Fire

King of New York

In Bruges

Rock n' Rolla

and I liked Love, Honour and Obey, but it's kinda hit or miss for people. My wife hated it.

Also, the Ocean's films are all wicked entertaining
