Wow, just finished Taken. Awesome movie. Liam Neeson is like the Irish Jack Bauer, only more ruthless. It's a must buy on Blu-Ray for me.

This sounds like it takes similar subject matter to The Limey but does it right.  I found The Limey to be simply so-so.  I think I'll have time to watch Taken tonight after work.

My problem with The Limey was that it moved a little too slow.  Terrance Stamp was fantastic and the way he appeared to always be on the edge of just wiping out everyone around him was well done.  However, they never really fulfilled that promise of an explosion in the way I felt it should have been (read:  carnage, baby, carnage).

Taken on the other hand?  Damn...Neeson is one scary son of a bitch when he gets going.  I love that movie.

My god, this game is addictive.  I'm sitting here at work thinking about how to set up towers now.  I hate each and every one of you that suggested this game...   icon_evil

Center of Power is kicking my ass. I've tried different combinations of Tesla, Inferno, Guns, Cannon, Meteor and Concussion Towers putting them in various patterns to extend the walk time of the aliens along with different timing on my Tower upgrades and still all of my power cores get taken between waves 14-18.

I put two yellow concussion towers smack dab in the middle of the top platform near the exit and then put in two temporal towers.  4 yellow cannons on each corner of that platform and a red gun tower in between the concussion towers and i tore through everything.   icon_biggrin

STILL addicted to this game.  Couldn't get into the demo for plants vs. zombies, though.   icon_confused

Ebert's usually the more forgiving of critics when it comes to genre films.  However, this time around he appears to be the victim of old school expectations.  It seems like he's almost upset that they're messing with the franchise.   icon_confused

Richard has been the most fascinating character to me for the last few seasons.  I was glad to see a little more of him last night.  I'm looking forward to finding out more about his background.  Hopefully it's sufficiently creepy. 

...however, every time Richard speaks, I keep hearing

I was just checking it out and there are quite a few instances where a series of comics will suddenly drop 4 or 5 issues in the middle of the run.  That would drive me nuts.

From the IGN review -

A more serious issue was the corruption of my game save file, which happened after a crash and required a trip into the Xbox Dashboard to delete the save file and restart. And by restart, I mean clean restart, as in all my progress was wiped across multiple characters. While it's impossible to say how widespread an issue like this may be at this point, it's something you should be aware of before making a purchase decision. In case you hadn't heard, Ascaron recently went into administration. We've been told by a representative that post-launch support can still be expected.

That pretty much kills it for me.  With a game this huge, there's no way I'm going to risk losing my saves, even if the possibility is remote.  I guess I'll just go with the PC version.

ditto.  oh well.

I agree, this is the only DLC that I may buy too. This isn't sitting well with me since I really hate this DLC trend. At least Valve hasn't sold out yet.



doesn't far cry 2 on steam have a DLC?  Plus, DoW2 is a GFW product and I would assume they'll have DLC's for that as well.

Something that I'm finding impressive about the show is the ability of the actors playing the dolls to change roles so well.  If you think about it, this show is really challenging for actors, because they essentially have to create very different characters every week, and sometimes switch back and forth within the show, which they have all managed to do very well, I think.  I was especially impressed with the guy who got the security chief put in his head.  It was kind of eerie how well he imitated him.

Yep- Dichen Lachman and Enver Gjokaj are great finds and hopefully will have a promising future even if Dollhouse doesn't go on.  Sad thing is that they are acting rings around Dushku. 

My thoughts exactly.  At first, I thought those two actors were merely window dressing.  But they've show some real acting chops.  Especially Gjokaj.  Man, that guy is scary good at playing such radically different people.

honestly, I'll be glad if they skip over Magneto to do Deadpool, especially if they insist on using CGI to make Ian McKellen younger.

I wonder if they'll have him use his magnetic powers to whip his walker at people?

Downloaded it last night and fired up my save from right before the final moments of the game and chose an alternative ending that would let me survive...and the game dropped me back to the menu screen.  I tried it a second time and it finally opened up the new content.  Just a word of warning that it may do the same for someone else.  If so, just reload and try it again.

My only problem with the show is that in my opinion it didn't really get interesting until the last half dozen episodes of the last season.  It was like they needed someone to light a fire under their ass to get it going.

7471  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: X-Men Origins: Wolverine on: May 04, 2009, 09:35:57 PM
The first x-men caught me completely off guard.  It showed what a talented cast coupled with writers who cared about the material could do.  It was first and foremost a character driven film.  The second one threw in a bit more action, but still maintained that character development so necessary in making us care about these people.

X3 just tossed all that out and moved you from one battle to the next without any affection for its characters.  It was a real disappointment for me, although I still enjoyed seeing Vinnie Jones struggling to make his accent at least halfway understandable.   icon_biggrin

I don't understand this line of reasoning.  I feel like most RPGs tend to be very story-heavy, and thus contain a lot of "NPCs yammering".  If that bugs you, then you probably weren't looking for an RPG anyway.  Besides, given that this is a Bethesda game, couldn't you just tell them to fuck off and then shoot them in the head?

Simply put, he doesn't like RPG's.  He likes action/rpg's that are very lite on the rpg, at most.

I try to avoid day one purchases as well, but I tend to let that rule become more of a suggestion when it comes to developers/distributors I trust.  Steam and Stardock being two of them as I have no doubt that they'll do their hardest to fix any issues that might pop up (Stardock being the more reliable of the two as Brad himself will dive in and work on stuff). Am I disappointed in the MP and favor points problems that have plagued the game since release?  Of course I am.  However, I look at this way:  I put money in the pockets of a small developer (in comparison to studios like EA and Microsoft) who actually cares about their products and will work to fix them.  I'm willing to live with that.

While I appreciate the half off coupons in an effort to up the playerbase, it does make me a bit miffed as an early buyer.  Basically, by buying on day 1, I had the joy of having an MP focused game with serious connectivity issues.  Had I waited, I would have had far fewer issues, and been able to get a code for 50% off from a friend.  Remind me, why did I buy on day 1 again?

hindsight is always 20/20.
