2841  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / This guy really wants another Elder Scrolls on: November 08, 2010, 02:15:04 PM
British rapper Dan Bull, who we've heard from before, returns with an elegantly-worded plea to Bethesda that amounts to: Fallout is nice, but a new Elder Scrolls game would be better.

I generally agree although I would actually wish for another Morrowind.  I found its world more unique and interesting.  Oblivion was rather generic fantasy land #12.

I liked it better than last week but I still don't get a strong sense of focus from them.  I think constantly wondering if you will be renewed and then only getting a few episodes at a time has kept the writers from really developing a strong arc.  They have to constantly be expecting to end in a few episodes so they don't want to open any big cans of worms.  It think uncertainty hurts the show overall.  However it was at least somewhat fun.

my text is fine, I'm on VGA

same here.  I'm on HDMI.

like the new look of the avatars.  farley2k's is still fat though.

Hey, he's been jogging!  



Personally I think the new look sucks and is just pointless.  Lets let people see less!  Lets make it blocky and flatter!  Yet lets also make it slower!  That will really impress fans.

What they really need to add is customization.  I know they are getting paid by ESPN to put it in people's faces but I don't use that feature there is no reason I should have to scroll more to get to what I do use.  Allow me to customize where the icons/banners/whatever are.  Let me remove Facebook, Twitter, ESPN, or the Zune ones because I don't need them!

So if they go without enough people to make a viable population then they are really just going to do scientific research until they die or they could work to setup infrastructure for the next group.  Noble goals.

I like them, as far as stills go.  Of course the story and acting might suck but at least it looks right to me.

2846  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Chuck Season 4 discussion (spoilers!!!) on: October 28, 2010, 05:01:35 PM
This week was a big "meh" from me.  It wasn't particularly funny, or exciting, or informative, or really anything.  It felt like a big setup for the mother's real story. 

2847  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Inception, Nolan's latest film on: October 27, 2010, 02:19:48 PM
This finally came to the cheap theater so I saw it last night and I loved it!  A great, great film. 

I amhappy that Cobb is back with his kids (at least according to a couple different people involved in the film) but I can't help wonder why they were wearing the exact clothes as he remembered and they were the same age.  How long was he "on the lamb"?  A week?  My kids that age look different in 6 months so it couldn't have been long.  My guess is Nolan wanted people to be kept guessing so he kept the same actors and clothes so we couldn't be sure but it kind of makes it hard to buy the he won ending. 

However overall it was a great, great movie.

Maybe I am just pessimistic but I expect there will be pretty big bugs with some quests.  They have a reputation - well earned - for not doing the best at polishing so I think it is just realistic.  However they also do great with story so I don't really care.  I expect to love it as much as KoToR2 and their other games.

Reading some movie sites, it appears that the script is out there and the verdict is that it sucks. So, not encouraging. Hopefully Russell will be doing rewrites.

A script based on a video game that isn't good?  That is shocking, just shocking.  They should hire the guys who did the Wing Commander script.  They could shape that script up!

I am watching last night's episode on Hulu right now and what has stood out so far is music.  They are having much, much better music scenes than last season.  It makes it fun to watch.

I found Name of the Wind very over rated.  It's like Harry Potter for grown ups.

So wonderfully entertaining, enjoyable to read, and generally a treat for readers?

However, if the succeeding books in the series are any good, The Name of the Wind could become my new #1.

If he actually finishes in under 3 books.   If he takes a Jordan and turns it into 30 novels where nothing happens, or if he pulls a Martin and takes 30 years between each book I will hate him forever.

A PS2 is a great suggestion - tons and tons of titles and often dirt cheap.  A gamecube would also be a lot of fun but a lot less games.

2864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Getting a PS3 Soon... on: September 12, 2010, 03:20:51 PM
To each their own.

I don't get it for the most part.  Our library rents games and won't get "M" rated games.  However they have Batman: Arkham Asylum.  Have you listened to some of the tapes?  They are gruesome and very violent.  The fighting is also very violent, but enemies just get knocked out - after having the sh^& kicked out of them...right.  However since there isn't a lot of blood, and people just fall unconscious it is all "Ok" to the ratings folks!

Still I guess at least you can play that great game!

2865  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: [TV] Eureka Season 4 discussion on: September 12, 2010, 03:13:14 PM
What did people think of the mid season finale? 

Personally I loved it.  I thought they did time travel in an interesting way, the action was good, and everything worked out in the end.  I have to say I was concerned at first when Allison died because they have done the dying significant other so many times!  Stark, and Kim - twice!  It is just a bit overused.  However they handled it really well.

The only low point for me was Beverly Barlow.  I think Eureka's best season was 3 when they totally dumped that whole "Beverly and the secret society" plot.   They seem to want to have some villain with an overarching plan which just doesn't fit for me.  I will be disappointed if Beverly becomes the focus of the show the rest of the season. 

All in all though it was a great episode.

I wouldn't move into my mom's house but she could move into mine.  Now that I have two kids and have to think about how to deal with "in service days", sick days, summer vacation, wrap around day care, etc.  I can see a huge value to having someone there who could watch the kids.  Heck if I paid her half of what I pay for daycare she would be well off.

I have been renting Metroid Prime 3: Corruption from our library (they just started carrying games). It is a lot of fun.  Looks bad by today's standards but just a lot of fun to play.

I have only played a few missions but I like it.  The only think I don't like is that you sometimes have to restart a level once you know the layout.  This happens in a lot of SRPGs so it isn't a deal breaker but it is annoying.

For example in one mission you are told to defeat a tank and they talk about blowing stuff up near the tank.  I played VC1 though so I brought along my lancers - except you really need to start with shocktroppers and scouts to clear the people out of the first two "mini maps"   Since I didn't start with enough I had to reload.  Not terrible but somewhat annoying.

I liked him fine in Stargate but I hate him in Eureka.  Perhaps it is because they told him to keep that stupid grin on his face all the time.

Daehawk, I would tell you that they change actors, but you wouldn't read it until it was too late.

I was expecting that to be a running gag where they change him every episode.

That would be a lot funnier than the guy then got for the roll.  I dislike him greatly.  I can't imagine that the first guy they had was demanding so much money they needed to drop him.

This is why I like to just wait until it hits DVD.  It drives me nuts to get half a season and then wait a few months until the rest.

What did everyone think of "The Ex-Files"?  I found it one of the better episodes of the season, but I like the light hearted stuff a lot better than the attempts at tension like the zombie episode.  I also really, really like the banter with Stark and Jack.  I miss Stark because he was one of the only people who hated Jack - or at least picked on him a lot.

I bought this off ebay a couple months ago and I just don't love it like I did my iPhone so I would like to sell it.  Since it is a perfectly working phone and is pound for pound one of the best phones on the market now I want to get what I paid off ebay for it so the price is $400.  I have never sold anything for that much but it feels like a fair price when I look at N1s for sale right now on ebay.

Here is a link to my local Craigslist add which has photos.  I thought those might help more than anything else I can say.

Oh and I plan to buy an iPhone 3GS for around $300-350 and pocket the hundred so if you have an iPhone 3gs and want to offer trade+cash I would be interested.

Just do some research on her past...and imagine that your daughters grow up to be just like her.  Kids emulate the trash they see on TV. 

If you don't believe me, spend some time in our wonderful public school systems.  Society is heading to a scary place.

Perhaps I don't understand.  Your saying a woman who is "trashy" is bad but a bunch of guys who try to violently attack her are good?  Then you say that society is scary?  Yeah it is because some people seem to feel that violent attack is justified if you don't like someone's stage act - not because some stage acts suck.
