Hey Arclight, I commend your bravery in coming into this thread asking questions about how to play the game.  Because, y'know, twelve-year-old girls play and master these games. slywink

Its not that I don't know how to play the game its just that I can't "find" the game. Having a bit of a hard time finding the fun...For all the success of this franchise I'm a bit baffled still as to what the hook is..

No worries. My expectations aren't very high.

12 year old girls can also out skip me, but that never worried me either.........

it would if those little bastards were skip-chasing you!

Personally I'm not a big fan of SBC, for the same reasons as Hepcats friend.  It strikes me as high school behavior, where everyone laughs but the kid that's the butt of the joke.  And those kids don't usually look back on that as a humorous experience if they feel like they were humiliated.  Not all of SBC's stuff crosses that line, but some of it does. 

but those of us doing the humiliating look back on those moments and laugh our asses off...then we have a diet coke and watch 24.

To each his own. I've a friend who walked out of the new Star Trek. He was incensed over it. He said the moment they introduced Winona Ryder as Spock's mom, he just got up and left.  icon_lol

The only movie I walked out of was 'The Hours'. That long-suffering lesbian movie really drove me up the f'ng wall!

Hepcat, how old are you that you actually watched 'Caligula' while it was in theaters?  icon_lol

It was at the student center of my college when I was a junior as part of some midnight movie festival.  not first run, for god's sake!  bad played about 3 weeks later as part of that same festival.  so i had both of my "walking out of a movie" experiences pretty close together.  now, i'm old enough to just go "well, this sucks.  nap time." and i'm out like a light until an usher knocks over my walker while cleaning up.

 icon_lol  Yeah, this was a bit over the top.  While I didn't really like the film, I reserve that level of hatred for truly offensive films.  The only movies I've walked out of were Caligula (I was on a date and thought people were kidding when they said it had hardcore sex scenes inserted into the story) and Andy Warhol's Bad (baby scene...that's all I'm going to say as I get sick just remembering it).

My only complaint is that I was hoping the first one would continue adding campaigns.  If they're jumping into a sequel this quickly, I doubt we'll see any new story content for the first game.  If they continue this pace, then the sequel will have that issue as well.

I'm in the market for a new one myself.  I got a Fossil one several years ago that I love, but it's getting pretty dingy and it's time to update.  Sadly they don't make the one I got anymore, and their designs are much more plain than they used to be, or I would likely just buy it again.

Anyway, go for broke with Burberry!  I am lust with this bag -

Brad Pitt carries one.  Only $900 at your local Nordstrom! icon_eek

Looks Scottish to me. I bet i could get one in our clan's tartan colors.

Every time I see someone mention "their clan colors" i have to chuckle.  A friend of mine worked for a company that supposedly supplied folks with scotch/irish and english ancestral history, with tartan colors being the most requested items.  he then showed me how they basically chose the colors at random from a book, then supplied these folks with a "clan history" that was just a template sheet that they used Microsoft Word's find and replace function to fill in.  icon_lol

I went cheap and got one of these in olive green. It's durable but nothing fancy. Works for what I need.

I get crap for using it from coworkers which I don't get. Its ok to use a back pack but not a messenger bag?

I have one very similar to that.  However, after I received it I realized it has red stars on the strap.  Now everyone thinks I'm a supporter of the Red Army.   icon_confused

I have a friend who I thought had similar taste in comedy.  Recently I brought up Bruno and how I thought the trailer for the new movie looked funny.  There was a pause and then he mentioned that he hated Cohen because he didn't like comedy that relied on humiliating people.  While I can understand that sentiment, I have to say that a large part of comedy consists of "getting one over" on someone.  In essence, all comedy is cruel in some parts.  As Mel Brooks once said,

Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die.

I picked up the rulebook for Secrets of the Third Reich out of curiosity.  While the book is full of really awful artwork and more than a few misspellings, I really dig the setting.  It's much weirder then AE-WW2.  I see it more as a complement to AE-WW2 in my collection than a competitor.  Both rules sets are pretty easy to learn and the miniatures are interchangeable, for the most part.  I think I prefer the setting and tone of SoTR, though.

Hmmm...FFvTR works perfectly under vista 64, but FF is a bit wonky.  had to use software sound plus my characters don't seem to want to follow my orders all the time. 

Otherwise, the game holds up relatively well.  I think that has more to do with the art style they use.  I have to say, I'd forgotten how much fun this series was.  I really wish they'd go back and do another in the line!

Will be watching it tommorrow evening and writing my review for Horror-101. A lot of horror fans are skeptical because it's a PG-13 movie.. but I'm hoping Sam will make it lots of fun to watch.

The Haunting (the original, not the goofy ass remake).  Scariest...film...ever.  Not one curse word, drop of blood or even monster.  A lot of today's horror fans aren't really horror fans.  They're gore hounds.  I want you to chastise these people on your site.  Give 'em a dressing down, PR!

the shirt



the story

Quote
Sales of the “Three Wolf Moon Shirt” are up 2300% after word got out that it was getting priceless customer reviews on Amazon. Hundreds of reviewers are vying to be the funniest. The first one says, in part:

    This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.

You have to learn to use the whole loaf, just like Native Americans used the whole buffalo back before Costner civilized them.  Make clothing out of it.  Create toys for your children out of the crust.  Let it harden in the sun, then sharpen the edges for deadly throwing squares you can use to then hunt down and kill more bread...trucks.

Or maybe french toast? Or using the old bread to make croutons?

could these "croutons" you speak of be used as some form of melee weapon?

They could put Tonya Harding in there for all I care.  I don't much care for Smits, but last season was still good.  I'm just glad Dexter's coming back. 

Yeah, I was surprised at how little Smits brought to the show.  Plus, the guy ain't agin' well.  Still, the show is basically just a vehicle for Michael C. Hall's considerable talent.  I honestly can't imagine anyone else playing Dexter with such aplomb.  I can't wait for season 4.

p.s. I was surprised to read a few months ago that Hall had married the woman who plays his sister in the show.   icon_eek

so far this week i've bought king's bounty, men of war, stalker: clear sky and WiC.  I know I'll get the SotS if it's the ultimate edition as well.  these sales are gonna be the death of me!
