321  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Superman Returns! on: June 30, 2006, 03:14:12 AM
you can tell this was made by a fan, for the buddy and I counted no less than 9 comic covers done as scenes in the film. It was amazing.

I'm kind of floored but the criticism it's receiving in the media. It really just proves that anyone can criticize anything and it doesn't mean dookie...
322  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Scientology is insane. Video proof. on: June 27, 2006, 01:24:21 PM
i live in Clearwater, the spiritual center of this insanity, and see proof of this nonsense every single day. And yeah, that's pretty much what these folks are like...
323  Gaming / Analog Gaming / What would make the perfect game store? (need ideas) on: June 06, 2006, 02:48:55 PM
my biggest reason for avoiding gamestop/EB is pushy salespeople.

I expect to be acknowledged when I walk in the door, but past that just make yourself available for questions. I despise getting locked into a situation where I have to be a rude prick in order to disengage from them or to say no to the 50 million thing some drone is trying to sell me. The best salepeople are like the best waiters - available, yet invisible.

That being said, selectively hire and pay well. Hit other stores in the area and see what they are doing and how their staff is. If you find someone that impresses the shit out of you, try to lure them away to work at your store. Always take care of regulars, and by that i mean the ones that actually spend coin, not the hang-arounds that loiter at the counter.
324  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Worst Movie of All time candidate on: February 21, 2006, 05:43:09 PM
i'm surprised to see some of these flicks on the WORST movie list. Bad maybe, but most were still moderately redeeming in at least a small way

and with that I present......

The Master of Disguise, starring Dana Carvey

I dare you to still through the whole thing....
325  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What are some good fantasy movies? on: February 10, 2006, 06:15:03 AM
Would Time Bandits qualify?

i dig on Jason and the Argonauts too
326  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Remember gun-kata? on: January 17, 2006, 08:17:53 AM
wasn't that a british tv show or miniseries or something? I saw one episode and it was pretty good (all i remember was it was british and had vampires)
327  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Good hostage movies? on: December 29, 2005, 04:22:08 PM
Would Phonebooth qualify? I kinda dug that one...
328  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I'm a little stuck on Quake 4, need tiny spoiler... on: December 22, 2005, 03:05:46 AM
I ran behind a wall or beam or something and jumped out periodically to lob grenades at him, worked like a charm
329  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Icewind Dale novels.........where have i been? on: December 18, 2005, 08:35:46 AM
All good books, although some shine more than others. Incidentally, Bob is a really nice guy...I worked for Waldenbooks right out of high-school, and he came in once every 8 months or so for a signing. Used to send us really neat stuff he got from his publisher as well, cool posters and advance copies and whatnot
330  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 worth getting if you don't have??? on: November 23, 2005, 03:27:59 AM
In my opinion, yes....I would put it visually above Xbox games like SC:Chaos Theory or Rebel Commando, which i personally thought looked fantastic considering the age of the system. Particles and lighting are much improved and the little touches stand out alot. No real jaggies either, which is cool. I have mine plugged in through composite cables and I'm really happy with it.

I had the same fears, regarding missing out visually due to not owning an HD set, but for me it's been proven a non issue. I really can't imaging spending more than 600 or so on a television.

and on a side note, for some reason Need for Speed Most Wanted is my favorite game, eclipsing even PGR3 and Perfect Dark Zero...kind of surprised me
331  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 worth getting if you don't have??? on: November 22, 2005, 08:01:50 PM
I have a regular 32"tv and it's looks fantastic...i'm sure HDTV is impressive, but i'm pretty happy with what I have
