semiconscious, what do you love so much about it?  I am going to get the demo but I wondered what it was that made you like it so much.

I spend a lot more time on my iPhone but the DS has depth games.  I can't think of many games as robust as "The World Ends With You" on the iPhone.

I wouldn't worry.  Heck my browser sometimes locks up on my PC!  I can't imagine that it couldn't occasionally lock up on PS3.  I don't think their browser is the best or most stable either.  If it doesn't lock up while watching a movie or playing a game I would forget about it.

On the Mask episode
Spoiler for Hiden:
Wow, so a nice turn for the show.  Looks like Chuck and Sara are finally over, but there's still some nice tension between them.  Chuck has basically been put in Sara's position.  I hope Sara doesn't leave the show, but it sounds like they're setting up the possibility.  But, it's also nice how Sara is getting something that works for her character.

And now, Morgan needs his girl to come back so his character gets left out in the cold.

I just hope they don't pull another Bryce Larkin on the whole deal and kill both of them off.

With everyone saying how the show can't stay with the same things it's been going with, it's nice to see this shift, even if it's a bit melancholy.


Spoiler for Hiden:
Kreuk's last episode in the next one to air (March 1) after the Olympics so don't hope for much of long term commitment with Chuck

Not sure from the review how the game controls and if that brings you into the game or pulls you out of it.

I assume they will not continue to be this dark.  I wouldn't like it if the tone of the show changed permanently either.

I liked this week's episode a lot.  Very good and a little emotional.  I wonder where they will end up with Chuck becoming a "real" spy.

My question is how rugged it is.  If the whole family is supposed to use it will it tolerate my kids dropping it?  The iPhone won't so will this be tougher?  Or am I going to have to carry it on eggshells?

I like your post, but I was shocked at how many extras you will need to buy just for a normal day!  "Hit the Infrared Remote app (this requires an additional attachment)", "At the meeting, I use the VGA adapter to put my presentation up on the projector screen", "and start playing some background music through the Airport-enabled speakers".... not to mention a bluetooth enabled stereo in the car!  Seems like your iPad is going to need a lot of stuff to help it along.

I got to play last night - for the 3rd night in a row! That is something amazing with two kids and a wife who wants to spend time with me.  

I am still a bit fuzzy on the tech upgrade stuff.  I picked up some "sub zero" (or whatever it is called) and upgraded one thing - then I couldn't upgrade anything else.  However I have no idea how much zero stuff I had or how much each research thing used so I didn't feel like I made very informed choices.  

I wish they would have played X-com a few more times to learn how to do a basic research tree since they wanted to have it in the game.

So, 22 hours in already, and I've hit the second disc. Wasn't exactly a giant pivotal point in the game, either. It just sorta...happened.

Keep in mind they have stated that you play disk 1, then disk 2, then disk 1 again so you are not halfway done you have just reached Bioware's odd spot for a disk swap.

Nor did they have an installed base of 100,000 apps developed specifically for them. 

Really?  There aren't 100,000 apps developed for Windows XP?  That is what most notebooks run and I am pretty sure there are a lot of apps for it.  There are really more apps for the iPhone than for windows?

I found this comment on interesting.

"This is a huge step backward in the history of computing," said FSF's Holmes Wilson, "If the first personal computers required permission from the manufacturer for each new program or new feature,"

The iPad has DRM writ large, you can only install what Apple says you may, and "computing" goes consumer mainstream — no more twiddling, just sit back, spend your money, and watch the show — while we allow you to.

Surprising no one, I am already on the waiting list to order one. This device looks marvelous to me. The fact that I can put iWork on it and get some real work done, without luggin my laptop around, is a big deal to me. Since AT&T has forced me to switch to a Verizon Droid (ugh), having access to all my iPhone apps again will be marvelous, as well. [/flash]

I can't imagine working without having a couple things open and being able to cut and paste between items.  I have Word and Excel open or want to launch an attachment from mail.  Perhaps the iPad will do that but the current iPhone software doesn't so I can't imagine how Apple will get it on the iPad.

2620  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: LF: iPhone headphones on: January 27, 2010, 04:44:45 PM
That would be great!  I know they are not great headphones but since Apple decided to make that stupid different size jack it means none of the ones I have work.

Wow - Even though I pretty much knew what was going to happen, I was still blown away by the intro sequence. 
Spoiler for Hiden:
Walking into the main area of the Normandy, looking up, and seeing big chunks of the ship floating into space was just amazing.  One question - Is the person who appears with you in the intro the one you romanced in the first game, or is it always Liara?

Mine got lost and I would love to get some cheaper than new.  I am hoping that some person who cares more about quality of sound might have bought a better pair than comes with the iPhone and might be willing to sell their old ones.

PM me with an offer if you have some.

I don't understand the practice of giving the review of a sequel to someone who didn't like the previous game(s).  They're predisposed to not liking it. 

The same could be said for giving the review to someone who loved the first game though.  If someone loved ME, played it multiple times, did everything, tried every possible action then they probably would love the sequel so the review wouldn't mean as much either.

I guess it is just best if they state their bias up front and be as professional as they can.

2626  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Chuck Season 3 discussion (spoilers!!!) on: January 26, 2010, 02:06:22 PM
Well that episode was pretty lame.  Among the least funny and least exciting for me.  It just didn't feel funny to kidnap Lester, and I was shocked at how stupid the whole joystick coming out of the console was.  Didn't these people see Star Trek: Insurrection?  It was dumb then, it is dumb now.

My alarm goes off at 6:15am

I haven't used an alarm clock in years.  On average I wake up between 5 and 6:30 am everyday including weekends.   That's regardless of what time I actually went to sleep.

Me neither.  Our kids are always up between 5:30am and 6:30am so I have set the alarm since they were born.

We have a great 16 page thread going, lets not let it become about something besides Mass Effect 2.  I know it is a touchy subject and I also know that some people find it hard to let go once the subject is brought up but lets try.

‘The Cerberus Network’ is a conduit for players to receive bonus content as well as daily messages and news on upcoming releases for Mass Effect 2 for no extra charge. For players who do not buy the game new, ‘The Cerberus Network’ can be unlocked through a one-time, in-game purchase of a new activation code*.

Unless the "no extra charge part" refers only to the "daily messages and news on upcoming releases" part, then it sounds like it's all included.  Also, if you don't get everything, why would there be a "one-time" charge to activate the network?

Here is an interview with Greg Zeschuk - at the six minute mark or so he clearly says that of course their will be pay DLC.  Not everything will be free.

The Eurogamer review answers a lot of those questions.

This review reads like someone who doesn't really like the genre.  Sure it doesn't innovate but does it do the core SRPG functions well?  The reviewer seems more hung up on how the genre as a whole isn't this or that rather than if this game is a good SRPG.

Anyway, played the demo and it was alright; it seemed incredibly easy, though, which I guess 9 times out of 10 RPGs are fairly easy in the beginning. But they have an automatic battle option and I used that the whole time. The game looks pretty good... but the FMV sequences are done in a smaller box and not widescreen.

I played this on the DS and it was way, way, way, way easy.  Unless they modified it a lot you will be able to shut your eyes and just hit buttons and win every fight.
2637  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Mass Effect 2 Teaser and stuff! on: January 17, 2010, 01:48:47 AM
The difficulty of that battle is sometimes caused by when you go to that planet.  If you go to early it is hard if you go to late it is easy.

And yes they should have had an auto save after the elevator reached the top but before the Krogan started talking.  It would have been simple and saved a lot of gamers annoyance.

It may not catch everything. But, as much as anything it is a deterrent. It eliminates a large range of possibilities for would-be terrorists. In addition they have to be wondering - does it really only catch what they're actually telling us it can catch? Or can it do more?

It lets them concentrate other assets on finding other things. It reduces the chances of a terrible incident. That's good enough for me.

Besides, most of airplane security is smoke and mirrors anyway. It's all designed to keep the sheep happy and flying so the economy doesn't shut down smile

At what a cost to tax payers? Who is going to pay?  Should tax payers pay millions - heck billions - so that sheep are happy while flying?
