This is just in that range where I can't instant buy but I want to find a way to buy!  I wish it would have been $300 so I could just ignore it!

If a tv show was put up free to watch by a network, and then taken off, would it still be considered illegal to download it then?

Yes.  It is still their content even if they offered it at one time for free.  If they are not providing it it is illegal for you to take it.

Mass Effect 2.  I actually played it when it first came out from Gamefly then bought it a couple weeks ago so I could play it again.

Instruction manuals are a wonderful thing. icon_wink

Unfortunately, manuals don't come with downloaded PSN games.  If they did, I'd most certainly take a look at one. 

Might try to hit up GameFAQs and see if I can piece things together from some walkthroughs there.

I have used this guide a like it for general overview stuff.

I think I'm remembering why this game never grabbed me the first time.  I'm 2 hours in now...and don't have a freaking clue what the hell is going on.  I understand the basics of combat (i.e. move, choose weapon, attack), but there's so much other stuff happening and none of it is ever explained.  What are these medals that keep flashing up as I take actions?  What are these skills that the game is suddenly asking me if I want to equip mid battle, and how do I activate or change them?  Why are the enemy pilots randomly ejecting from their Wanzers mid-battle, then jumping back in again?  Why am I getting "morale down" messages from the enemy, and what am I supposed to do with that information?  Why are my attacks damaging different parts of the enemy?  Am I controlling that, or is it random?

Outside of the very basic initial tutorial, absolutely nothing is explained in-game.  I consider myself a rather seasoned SRPG gamer, and am completely lost on this one so far.

Your attacks randomly target a part of the enemy body.  You have no control.  So if you use a sniper rifle you will hit 1 part for high damage, but if you use a shotgun you may hit many parts for less damage.  That is because it is each shot which is random so 10 shotgun shots can hit 10 different body parts (well there are not 10 but you get the idea) but a single shot gun can only hit one part.  

There is a lot of random stuff in the activation of skills, damage, which part is damaged, etc.  And quite frankly most of it doesn't matter.  80% of the time you have to completely destroy the enemy.  Everyone once in awhile though you can get new parts if you haven't destroyed them but defeat the enemy.

At least that is what I remember.
It can be confusing.  I would go to Gamefaqs and read some guides.  That is what I did when the game came out.

Generally medals are like skill levels.  So if Emma has an A with missiles, and Roy (roy?) has a B, Emma is more likely to hit with that weapon.  So give weapons they are high it to characters.

Skills you get randomly with different weapons and machine parts so equipping a part my allow you to learn "zoom"  Once you have learned a skill you can equip it so it might trigger randomly.  

When attacked a character may be kicked out of their Wanzer. It is random.  Since you can't do squat for damage out of the machine everyone tries to get back in ASAP.

Low moral will cause them to be less accurate and sometimes not act at all.

Oddly enough I found the 360 version to look better.  Odd because they have had so long to work on it.  Still a great game.

The trusted source appears to be EA sales.   Of course this is about the bigges "non secret" secret ever.  Everyone knew they were making a third game.  It was touted as a trilogy in lots of interviews, press releases, and heck the game itself.

Teaser is up and everywhere

Looks nice but it was never the special effects that hurt the movies.  It is the acting and the stories.  So this trailer looks great but doesn't really tell us anything about the actual movie.

I do find some of the comments so cliched.  It is stuff people say about every role they have.  I will still check it out though.

I think it looks interesting but what carrier?  In the US that is a huge conern.  However this may be too far out to have that decided yet.

sudo basically means "do as a super user" in Unix/Linux.  Super users can do everything and anything on a Unix/Linux system.  Kind of like every user in Windows smile  So it would be a command that could not be resisted.  You put it before the command like "sudo del file"

It has actually been used before by XKCD in a way that pretty much explains what it means to use the awesome power of "sudo"

This Monday's episode (11/22) was just .... well I felt a terrible wrap up.  They erase Chuck's mind...but with a kiss from Sara he is all fine.  No permanent brain damage and they still want him to be a spy so basically no consequences no big deal.  Well I guess there is the big game changer - that Chuck has to come up with a new way to purpose to Sara.  That should fill a season or two....

2747  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [FILM] Buffy the Vampire Slayer: REBOOT! on: November 23, 2010, 04:02:39 PM
Because it sells well.  In the end these corporations do not do this stuff because they hate us, or even because they like us.  They care about profit and it makes higher profit to do a reboot.  As long as "fans" go see it - with the typical defense of "it is just a popcorn movie", or "I don't have to think about every movie"  - they will make it because they only care about one thing, one, profit.

In case anyone wanted to see the trailer dissected a bit with the director here is your chance.  He doesn't have any startling revelations but he seems like a nice guy.

Anyone know why it is so hard to find the original movie? You would think that with this around the corner they would have re-released it or something.
i can only find $90 versions floating around.... just need a basic DVD or BR version so that my family can see the original before watching this one...

Some speculation is it is Disney's doing

I got it for the ipad and I didn't like it much as a game but it sure was pretty.  I often wanted to aim at things but was pulled away.  I guess that keeps the frantic pacing but that isn't how I play shooters so that failed me but it does show what the platform can do.

1) Red Dead Redemption - feel apart and got boring/repetitive once you got to Mexico.  I just stopped playing there.

I couldn't figure out if I somehow did something wrong in RDR.  When I got to Mexico I got a tutorial in dueling, however I had been playing for like 20 hours at that point and had a ton of duels.  I think somehow they expected you to get to Mexico much earlier in the game, which would have made it feel fresher.

Chuck lost the Intersect?!  That is just so surprising and novel.  Oh wait no it isn't. It is like when Lex Luthor pulls out Kryptonite, or Batman loses his belt, or every other time they produce some "twist" to cause a superhero to lose their power.  It is really overdone.   They have even already done it in Chuck.  I wish they went with a different plot.

I'm under no illusion that the Kinect was a must buy.  Especially on release with the lackluster line up of games they released with it.  Also, the response when using your hands to select things on the screen is sluggish, to say the least.  The lag is a little too much for my tastes.

That being said, I'm still enjoying it.  I'm certain that it will only get better with time.

Like the Kin!  Or the Zune!  M$ has a great history of sticking by hardware.....  slywink
