Got this coming from GameFly and I'm very excited to give it a try. I've been jonesing for some old school Zelda action. Darksiders have been scratching that itch recently but this looks like it will be even better.

i don't look at the guides for everything,i look in the guides when i am stuck or when i am collecting stuff...i hate being stuck on something,racking my brains for half an hour...look in the guide and the answer is some stupid obscure thing(this may be for the Resi evil titles..the mix and match items)



This is what Gamefaqs.com is for.  No need to spend money when the answer is free.

GameFAQs doesn't let you save your place.  It also doesn't have maps or color pictures showing you what they're talking about.  It's also on a computer somewhere in the house as opposed to right next to you on the couch (unless you're using a laptop, of course, but then I still have to go get that).  And, often, it's written by idiots.

If I need a guide (usually only for collectibles after I've finished the game) I just print the relevant section which is usually just a page or two and bring it with me to the couch. Much cheaper and more convenient then a guide.

I keep wondering just how veggies are getting e-coli. I thought it was only in ground up meat..but it is turning up everywhere these days. So is someone at the packing plant use it for toilet paper before packing??

E. coli is an enteric bacteria, but it's very common and does just fine in soil, decaying vegetables, and water.

Yeah, that. Except after the last OOutage Rip posted that he noticed the server was down and rebooted. Made me wonder if they went back to the old arrangement.

Whatever happened, it looks like we're in for one of their longer OOutages again.

No, we didn't. But it's a dedicated server so the technical admins have the ability to reboot the machine.

When looking for extremely talented actors, Hollywood should just put Whedon on speed dial.

Reading through this thread for the first time and I just have to say..."please God, don't let this happen". I like Buffy, Angel, and Firefly but I think Whedon generally sucks at finding talent and has just gotten lucky with a few of them. I mean, he casts Elisha Dushku in everything and she might be one of the worst actresses I've ever seen.

Dushku was perfect for Faith.  She just didn't have the range for Dollhouse.  But on Dollhouse the actors for Victor and Sierra were amazing finds. 

I suppose she was perfect if Faith was supposed to be completely devoid of emotion and capable of displaying the acting range of a high school freshman, then sure slywink.

WTF? They've released two GotY quality RPG's in the last 12 months and all of a sudden they're pathetic?

putting out costumes for 2 dollars when this should be free. yes.

bitter that i'm being nickeled and dimed? yes.

have fun with your shitty over priced dlc, but know that you are part of the problem and nothing more.

and here's why:
hey, remember when tf2 added hats? remember what the cost was? zero.
hey, remember when tf2 added a whole new fucking game type? zero dollars again!
hey, remember when tf2 added new weapons? ZERO AGAIN

actually, they could do that to animals. i despise them unless i'm eating them. fuck pets. if they did that i'd buy their stupid dlc as a way of saying thanks.

Comparing Bioware to Valve (a company that has an entirely separate major revenue stream in Steam) is an apples to oranges comparison and means nothing.

Also, why exactly should these weapons and armor packs be free? Oh, and say "Hi" to the Bioware rep standing next to you with a gun to your head.

Quote from: Jaddison on April 13, 2010, 12:45:30 PM

godhugh I don't think the real issue is the suing.  it is the coverup and moving priests around.  It is the very apparent motive that it is more important to protect the church than the children.  Were I a Catholic I would have to ask myself what is that the church wouldn't do to protect itself no matter the topic?  Clearly they have no problem sacrificing children to protect the church.  Now it's homosexuals offered up because they are an easy target.  Just a few weeks ago it was a comparison to Holocaust.  Is there anything they wouldn't do to protect the church?

No, the real issue as it concerns the article VR posted is the suing. That's what the whole bill is about. If you want to talk about the entire scandal then yes, the issue is whether or not the Church considers protecting itself more important then children. Even as a Catholic I would say that, in the past, it definitely seems like a large number of the leaders of the Church were focused entirely too much on protecting the Church and not their parishioners. Nowadays, however, aside from some asinine comments by Bishops who should never be allowed to speak in public again, I think that Church law is clearly focused entirely on protecting the children in their care over protecting the reputation of the Church.

Quote from: Razgon on April 13, 2010, 09:02:34 AM

The Vatican is becoming a joke these days... The second-in-Charge, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, has recently stated that its not celibacy that attracts pedophiles, its homosexuals... its an attempt to shift blame from the way of life for the catholic priests to the induvidual of course.

I wonder what catholics around the world think about all this? Do they see the Vatican is a power that cannot be wrong, or is more like a government that you can disagree with?

They're like a govt you can disagree with.

As for this, VR misunderstands the article. It is well known that there was a problem with sexual abuse in the Church in the past. They've implemented extensive institutional changes to make sure that it doesn't happen now. The question isn't "Is the Catholic Church full of child abusers today?" as VR presents it, it's whether or not the Church today should be able to be sued for crimes committed 30+ years ago.
132  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamefly - Yea or Nay? on: March 26, 2010, 10:02:10 PM

Quote from: Chaz on March 26, 2010, 09:53:00 PM

You might want to check and see if Gamefly has any Gboxes in your area.  Chances are they won't, since it's apparently a pilot program right now, but it might be worth checking out.  Since they don't seem to be terribly well known, they're apparently well-stocked with new releases.  I was able to walk up and get a copy of Bad Company 2 the first weekend it was out.  It costs $2 a night, so not great for extended rentals, but for short games that you can bust through in a weekend, it might work better.

Really, it would probably be better for people like Pharaoh and myself if Gamefly would offer an a la carte option.  I'd be okay with paying like $7 a week to rent a game.  I'm less okay with paying to wait for a game.  Even with Godhugh's method, you're still paying for a week where you don't have a game, which is lame.  I'd be more willing to wait on a rental if I wasn't paying for it.  Plus, by charging by the week, people would be more likely to send back games faster, decreasing wait times for everyone.

Yes, you are, but I can also get 2-3 new releases a month for $24. It's saved me hundreds and hundreds of dollars. Also, if I want to buy any of the new releases I can just choose the "Keep It" option and get it for $45.

BTW, I wouldn't call what I do "scamming the system", it really is just about keeping only the games I really want to play (new releases) in my queue and making sure I have an open spot for them on release day.
133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gamefly - Yea or Nay? on: March 26, 2010, 06:41:12 PM
godhugh's guide to getting new releases from Gamefly:

1) Keep nothing but upcoming releases in your queue.
2) Send one of your games back approximately 1 week before the next new release you want comes out.
3) When the game is received by Gamefly you should have an open slot with 2-3 days to spare.
4) 90+% of the time your new release will ship the Monday before it is released.

The absolute key to this is step #1. If you want an older release then send one of your games back and add a couple old ones you want to play to the bottom of the list. When one of them ships, take all old releases out of your queue so that is simply upcoming games again.

If you miss getting a new release the day it comes out, you simply won't get it shipped to you 2-8 weeks, depending on the game. You have to remember that games cost a lot more then DVD's and Gamefly simply can't stock the sheer quantities that Netflix can. The entire initial batch of Gamefly's stock is shipped out the day before a game is released. Those who have the new game in their queue at that point won't receive it until those of us who got it first start sending it back. For a game like God of War 3, this will probably be 2 weeks (1 week to finish the game, 1 week for laziness and shipping time). For a game like Final Fantasy XIII this will probably be between 1-2 months.

If you're not concerned with getting new releases the day they come out, then don't worry about this and just load your queue up with a mix of older games and upcoming games. But don't expect to get the exact game you want every time and don't be surprised or pissed when it's a month or two before you get a newer game.

I tried it, and it was a disaster.

First game I got was Sonic All Star Racing for Xbox. Disc shows up literally cracked in two. Return.

5+ days later, I get my followup game, Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox. Except the didn't include disk 2 or 3. Nice.

8+ days later, (which btw, God of War shipped on a Monday, and didn't get here until Friday, and I am in AZ, it was shipped from LA), God of War 3 arrives. I play it over the weekend, ship it back Monday.

Yesterday, I get a notification they have received it, and of the 2+ games I can have out at the time, all 11 on my GameQ are "Low" availability, and nothing is being sent to me.

I am not paying for this. Cancel. Ripoff.

That sucks, but I don't understand the discrepancy in experiences.  I've gotten every single new release I put on the list at or just about at launch.  What 11 games did you have that are all low?

Yeah, I don't really get how some people have such a different experience. The last 3 games I've gotten from them have been Heavy Rain, MLB10: The Show, Final Fantasy XIII, all on release day.

CRABCORE!!!!

Original video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggGEWw_ocUQ

Rock Band Drums Chart: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Qs47J2fsaE



I like that song. Beats the hell out of 3/4 of the junk they have given us to download in the last 6 months.

Wait a minute !!!

Are you saying that the chart looks fun? 

Or do you actually....like the song.   saywhat

I can't imagine anyone actually likes that song (other then emo kids) in anything other then an ironic sense. It makes me laugh simply because of how bad the song is, especially the dance remix that breaks out 3/4 through, and the video is an absolute classic. As music though, it's just about the worst song ever made.

Some of them can be really fun. I play Mahjongg on there quite a bit, along with Warstorm (CCG type game), Starfleet Commander, Kingdoms of Camelot (Evony clone, without the Evony), Bejeweled Blitz, and a couple others. A lot of them are crap but there are some real gems.

I have to say, I don't get the excitement over this game. I played, and thoroughly enjoyed GoW1, enjoyed GoW2 but felt it was kinda stale, paid no attention to the PSP release, and was completely underwhelmed by the demo GoW3. It's the exact same game as GoW1, with prettier graphics and more head ripping (which was a little disturbing). As far as I can tell there have been zero gameplay improvements since GoW1 came out so I just don't understand why there's all the excitement.

Yes, console gaming is "cooler" then PC gaming. It's that way for a number of reasons.. It probably has the most to do with the fact that console gaming is much more popular and typified by games like CoD, Madden, and Guitar Hero while PC Gaming is known (in the mainstream) solely for World of Warcraft and maybe The Sims. So, you have Soldiers/Football/Rockstars vs. Orcs/Elves. Who do you think is going to win the "cool" contest?

Maybe they should have broken you in a little first, but, really, how else are you going to learn to swim unless some asshole pushes you in the pool?  Go buy some new pants and have a nice swim. I promise, it won't actually kill you.

*There weren't any actual grammatical errors. It was a stylistic (i.e. subjective) issue that I'm sure you were referring to. For the record, I don't feel that Strunk & White would've been anything but slightly offended or frightened by this piece, and only for its content. They would certainly not be grammatically/stylistically irritated, though.

This may be the dumbest post I've ever read, and that includes some of the wonderful diatribes from Kobra and U2K.

Also. I had five, count 'em five, women read the piece before posting. Let it be noted that none of them kicked me in the nuts.


Then maybe you should have shown it to women whose taste are more mainstream. I'm sure your gut reaction to my saying that is something along the lines of "fuck your puritan mainstream ideals!", but the fact of the matter is you're writing on a website that is trying to be (if it isn't already there) mainstream. This is the type of article you see on a tiny niche adult gaming website that might have porn banners on it. Everything from content to style to the quality of editing smacks of amateur. I don't get why the reaction from the staff in this thread (with the major exception of KD) is to tell everyone who didn't like the article that they didn't understand the meaning or purpose of it. We're a fairly intelligent group here and I'm pretty sure we all got what you were going for. You just failed.

That is awesome news. DR2 is easily my most anticipated game of the year.
