True that!  I think the ACLU will be all over this like white on rice, but I'm happy with it for now. Nobody wants to see your drawers...


Before you decide you are happy with it, think about the money the government is spending in drawing up, discussing and voting on a law that would actually institute the fashion police. Never mind the subjective words "lewd" and "indecent".

I don't care what your ass is covered with, a long as it is covered.

I just don't get how the same game on the same system can have such a varied response.

Stardrifter has had no issues. I had 5 maybe and some are getting crushed.

Makes no sense to me...


Same here. I had no lockups at all, nothing more than a momentary slowdown and no game bugs really at all... except the little thing where they let me finish the freakin game without ever getting a prestige class.

I am appalled! So we who rent too often get punished on purpose? That is not unlimited renting, that is purposely delayed renting.


Basically those who turn around the most movies are the least valuable customers. If I didn't get stuck waiting for my wife to have time to watch some movies I could probably make netflix lose money on postage alone. There really isn't much motivation to make those customers a priority.

I must be a masochist.  I'm honestly thinking about picking this up the week it comes out, despite the fact I *KNOW* I will be unable to advance beyond the first fifth of the game.  (I rationalize it by saying, 'but that's a lot of game even so.')


It could be worse... it could be R: Racing Evolution or way worse... Auto Modellista (at least R has animated boobies)... *continues working through my backlog* Man did I make some bad picks.

Quote from: "Eduardo X"
Apparently, I don't like driving games because GT3 bored me to tears. I did pick it up in November, so maybe that's why I got so bored.


See.. I like a lot of driving/racing games. I even had a lot of fun with PGR2, but I hate the Gran Turismo series. The Forza demo also absolutely bored me to tears.


because forza and gran turismo are not driving games, they are simulations.... I much prefer good quality arcade racing like burnout, nfs:ug, PGR2

Like Sims 2, but with load times and a much bigger screen.

It's the same mindless fun as the Sims, but without the house building fun and with more arcade skill-type action.

I'm amused.

I guess I'm the only one willing to admit checking it out.  :oops:

I write software that determines if you are financially irresponsible enough that we can make money off you on late fees and interest, yet conscientious enough to keep paying. It's a fine line, but fun knowing you keep the economy rolling and help people ruin their own lives every day.

I think the answer here is obvious.

It is?


Yes, to me it is.

Sorry, pet peeve.

Personally I've never stretched the boundaries to buy a game. Except that the fact I buy games at all when I have dozens I own that I've never played (working on that though).

Perhaps calling 11 different stores to find the last un-reserved copy of EQ in DFW on release day would qualify. The day before release I wasn't even remotely interested, I spent the next 3 years playing religiously.

I've had the light master bonus for quite some time. I gained pretty much all the light points that were out there to be gained. I guess I just missed the window to talk to Kreia. The manual said something about choosing your prestige class at a significant point in the game.. I guess I was waiting for something more significant than getting my light saber Tongue

Never knew you where a chess head, id love a match one day when you have the time.  im gonna go check out that site now.


I love chess but I'm not terribly good. Win or lose, I usually learn something. The thing I like about the site I linked is that you don't have to worry about having enough time as the games generally take place over several days. Not the best place for the impatient, but if you subscribe you can play dozens of games at a time so you aren't always waiting for others to move. Non-subscribers are limited to 6 games at a time.

"Microsoft Announces Unprecedented Fleet for Forza Motorsport
Forza Motorsport Peels Out of the Garage with More Than 230 Car"

'Unprecendented' crosses the line from bullshit marketing hyperbole to ouright lie. Numerous games over the past 5 years have shipped with a large stable of cars and the 230 number has even been exceeded by a little independant cult classic game on the PS1 called gran turismo 2.


Unprecedented... No prior game has had that exact list of 230 cars. It's unprecedented! See, not a lie. They didn't say most cars ever, you just read it that way, which would be their intent. slywink

Has anyone actually gone and seen the movie?


I've seen it... geenrally I am pretty easy to please with movies. As long as it is fun, I don't mind plotholes and shaky acting.  For instance, I enjoyed Blade 3 and Daredevil. I simply liked Daredevil being brought to life, despite my disappointment in their choice for actor (not an action star Ben, sorry).

I went in to Elektra without any real expectations other than what is in this thread, I didn't read any of the reviews (and still haven't). I found the movie to be hmmm... lukewarm. There wasn't enough action to keep it fun, there wasn't enough of Sidn.. err.. Jennifer's skin to keep me interested. The story wasn't enough to cover the shortcomings in other departments.

To sum it up, bleh.

I'm not sure how "good" of pads you got, but there's a pretty wide variety available if you ever want to upgrade.  All the way up to metal monstrosities that replicate the arcade machine.  The pads I have are Buy & Shop's DX pads, which have 3" foam padding inside.  Works quite well.

Enjoy!


The Konami pad that came with the bundle seems very serviceable (very thin compared to a 3" pad!). I haven't had it fail me yet. The only problem I have is that I play on an area rug and the non-slip surface of the pad isn't really very grippy against the rug and the pad slowly rotates clockwise as I play. I have to adjust it between songs.. not that big a deal, but annoying. I'm trying to think of a way to keep it still without messing up the rug.

Quote from: "Fireball1244"
Then it appears you may prefer the iPod mini.

as the owner of a 20GB iPod, i still can't understand the appeal of the iPod Mini...unless you absolutely have to have a cute color.


36% smaller by volume, 16% cheaper by retail price and a lot of us simply don't have a need for 20GB of storage.

I have a 6 disc MP3/CD player in my car with only one disc in it because I don't really have more than 650-700MB of songs (12 albums, about 10 hours, in my case) I care to listen to regularly... why do I need capacity for 5,000 songs?

a 1GB Flash player would be about perfect for me...

I know, I know my man card is in Jeopardy just by posting this... I'm wondering if anyone here has checked it out (it's more fun than you imagine... really!)

Back in the summer, my company's IT department had a "fun day" at Dave & Busters, free lunch, games, drinks, billiards, etc and someone asked me if I wanted to try DDR. I gave it a shot and found myself enjoying it... though not exactly great at it. I wanted to play more but found my miserable failures at anything beyond the lowest difficulty levels to be a bit embarrassing...

Much to my wife's dismay, I put a DDR game with pad on my christmas list. I didn't get it, but I did get a Best Buy gift card, so I bought myself DDR Ultramix 2 with dance pad for xbox and I spent a couple of hours with it this weekend. It's a lot of fun. The interface is pretty simple, the difficulty ranges from "yawn", to "holy crap how can a  single human ever possibly hit all those steps" and everything in between. A lot of techno/dance music duh, which isn't really my thing, but isn't too bad.

How could I like a game so much and only play it for two hours over an entire weekend? Holy crap is it a lot of exercise... that's a very good thing for me. slywink
