I'm confused about the friend's list.  I added a few folks last night and they appear in the Impulse friend's list outside of the game, but when I'm in Demigod they don't appear on my friend's list in the overlay.

Here's my setup:

I have an impulse account under the name hepcat1 that i can log into using the hepcat1 username, or the email address i used for the account.  both will show me the same "hepcat1" account name when logging in with either. 

When i'm in the game, I created a profile called "hepcat" and then logged in with the email address as the username.

Am I doing something wrong?

hepcat1 on Impulse.  I'm lovin' this game so far.   The Weghted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you.

The only Bruce Timm DC movie I haven't enjoyed was Gotham Knights.  I liked New Frontier quite a bit, loved the Wonder Woman movie, and thought Doomsday was okay.

my understanding of dmd's question was that he was asking about the sub episode and the appearance of the liquid metal robots, not about the validity of scraper's theory.  perhaps i misunderstood what he was asking about.

that was about two episodes ago or so.  The Last Voyage of the Jimmy Carter, parts 1 and 2.

i ran over to target this morning as they're having a sale on "buy 1, get 1 half off" on some 360 games...and Godfather 2 is listed.  I had hoped to get online with a copy and cause you all great jealousness a la juniordan.  unfortunately, i was thwarted by their observance of the street date.   icon_frown

Fine, more like a worn-out hack joke that wasn't funny the hundred other times I've heard people make fun of Madonna/Jolie/Hollywood and their adopted babies.



The presentation of the joke was what I found funny.  Not that he simply made fun of it.  Adopted Hollywood babies are old hat, true.  But also remember that this was being filmed when a lot of that stuff was just happening.

I can't believe all the hate towards this episode. Brian's declaration about being an Atheist "That's just about the worst thing a person can be." Making him fetch the cross. The news cast outing Brian "Worse than Hitler!" and "I would rather have a terrorist living in town. At least they believe in god, even if it is the brown smelly kind."   icon_lol

Taking the Star Trek crew around town and dealing with their bickering, mundane comments "I have to pee" was funny. Problems at the drive-up window, wanting to use nick names at the bowling alley, I don't know, but I found this stuff funny. It was a great demonstration of Stewie thinking it would be awesome to have these people to hang out with and really they're just like a normal family.

I thought it was pretty funny.  Too bad it's trendy to "hate" Family Guys these days.

Not trendy, simply reality.  Family Guy stopped being funny after the 12,387th pop culture reference presented as "comedy".  I have the first two seasons on dvd and enjoyed them.  Then season 3 came along with pretty much the same thing, over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over (sorry, I thought I was writing a family guy episode there for a second)  Tongue

 Now i tune in every few months, see yet another joke they've beat to death and quiety turn it off.

Bingo.  Pushing a joke too far is funny.
 

Once...maybe twice.  But pushing it too far more than that usually means you don't have anything else that's funny.

The odd thing is that outside of Family Guy, Seth can be a funny dude.  I find American Dad fairly entertaining.  It just seems like he's been phoning it in for Family Guy for quite some time now.

7495  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Firefly's Capt. Mal's new show..Castle on: April 01, 2009, 01:51:05 PM
The show is utterly ridiculous (letting a civilian interrogate a suspect?  try getting THAT confession to stick in a court of law.), full of holes you could fly Serenity through...and still have room for the Enterprise, and completely addictive. 

And it's all due to Fillion.  The guy's hilarious.  I don't watch the show for a cohesive story or a challenging plot, I watch it in the same way I watch Monk...it's a character driven series that derives 99.9 percent of its charm from one person.

Man, I just never *got* Farscape.  I know people loved it and I watched two seasons thinking it would get better but I eventually just gave up.  It's like it was designed by a committee or something:

"We'll start off with puppets and add a blue-skinned mystical lady and a Wookie then an astronaut and a smart-alecky lady with a big nose and a thief!  We need a thief!  And then we'll have a bad guy in S&M clothing who has to insert this tube into his head and the ship will be alive and then..."

I just got tired of all the random crap they kept throwing at me.  I wish the show had some focus, some cohesiveness that tied it all together.  Maybe that happened in season 3 but I was burned out by that point.

Since that level of extrapolation can be applied to anything, that's not really an argument:

"well, you got the a bad guy in black who is really a tragic figure, then you have his son who is a good guy but doesn't know he's the son of the bad guy, then you got a smart alec thief ...you ALWAYS have to have the thief...who has a heart of gold...." - star wars

"well, you got the son of a supreme being who dies in order to save everyone else, then you have a guy who betrays him who really likes wine..."  - the bible

and i completely disagree that the show was unfocused and incohesive.  there was also an overall theme that tied it together (john trying to survive outside his own world).  it made perfect sense to many folks...and i wouldn't consider any of them stupid.

7502  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Horror Movie: Martyrs on: March 25, 2009, 02:30:38 AM
I recently watched this after hearing about the twist in the story.  I have to say, out of all the french horror films I've seen over the last couple of years, this was my favorite.  Yes, it's gory (and unflinchingly so at times), but it's not as gratuitous as its peers.  I think that's because the visceral aspects of the movie make sense in the context of the film.  It's like a thinking version of Hostel (if that's possible  icon_wink).

Is it a movie I'd recommend?  Probably not to anyone who doesn't like horror films.  But for those of us who enjoy a creepy time I think it's the right combo of smarts and scares.

i'm still on the fence on this damn thing, though.  i usually don't really like RTS games unless they do something radically different then "build, amass, attack" and this seems to have that something different.  however, the demo left me a bit cold. 
7504  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Battleforge on: March 24, 2009, 10:26:04 PM
I downloaded the demo while at work.  On my way home I stopped at a Target to pick up The Venture Bros. dvd.  I noticed that they had Battleforge out on the racks and I picked it up on a whim.  Before opening it I played through the demo's tutorial.  While I like it, I don't if I 39.99 like it.  In other words, I'm not sure if I'm going to open my box or take it back yet.  Decisions, decisions... icon_confused

Farscape?  I've only seen the first two seasons straight through and a scattering of the rest, but I always liked what I saw.  If I ever get around to resuming Netflix season 3 will be one of the first things in my queue.

i second this suggestion as well.  i absolutely loved farscape.  however, i've been trying desperately to finish my starburst dvd set collection and am having trouble finding them in stores or online.  they seem to be out of print right now, for the most part.

It may very well go bad again.  however, sometimes a good story indicates a change in writers and/or the direction of a show.  i'm willing to see if that's the case.  while i think it's generally sucked up to this point, the last episode showed enough promise to make me curious about where they're going.

two things:

can we all agree that calling me "HepC" is only going to end badly for me?   icon_lol

and secondly, I can't stand Mr. Bean either.  but black adder is so drastically different than that show that it staggers the imagination that it's the same actor.  black adder is a darkly funny show that doesn't rely on pratfalls and funny faces for the majority of it's humor.  

but yeah, it's a comedy so dramatic stories would not be anywhere in sight.   icon_wink

p.s. i second the Carnivale suggestion.  I just have to warn you that it ends rather abruptly with quite a few loose ends.  that may be a bit frustrating after investing two seasons worth of viewing.
7517  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Need show, have money on: March 23, 2009, 08:30:57 PM
If you like good comedies, how about the bbc series from years ago starring the guy who went on to play mr. bean and the guy who went on to become house:  black adder?  i think you can get the whole series cheap off ebay and it's well worth it.

along the same lines, check out Red Dwarf for sci fi comedy.

Lost is definitely worth watching. Heroes is backing up on my DVR but I'm pretty sure it will get deleted. I'm also way behind on Sarah Connor - save or delete?

I was just about to give up on Sarah Connor.  I was never a big fan of the show and I felt it was getting sillier by the week.  However, this past Friday night's show was such an incredible departure from the usual angst ridden episodes of Sarah pouting over how badly she feels about John's childhood that I was convinced to give it a stay of execution.  It was almost as if they hired a whole new writing staff that knew how to craft a good story full of action and mystery.
