As a piece of comedy, I thought it was pretty funny.  As a commercial, I'm not sure what they were trying to say.  My guess is it's like the Seinfeld show all those years ago:  it's about nothing.

OK, that didn't work. 

So, just look up Mirage775

it say's user not found when I try to find you.

Damnit, try this http://www.spore.com/view/profile/mirage775

I get an "Internal server error" every time, with you as well...

I think their servers may be down.  I've had this error for everyone since last night.

edit:  hmmm...I logged into the site first, then clicked on one of the linked names above and it worked.  i guess you have to log in first before viewing profiles.  in other words: user error   icon_redface

Does simply adding folks to your buddy list ensure that their creations appear in your game?  Or do I need to enable some option?  So far I don't think I've run across anyone's creatures.   icon_confused

Seriosuly, and I mean this with the utmost respect, suck it up! Europeans have been dealing with this for a long time, both regarding movies and games, and we still smile at times, actually. ;-)

i'll let my guns answer that tonight....punk

In order to do that, don't you at least have to get a shot off before I kill you?  Perhaps you should find something else to speak for you.  You know, something that actually has a chance to utter a sound before you're taken to the respawn screen.

wear steel asspads tonight, pal.  your hindquarters have "Needle Me" written on 'em now....

Looking at those scores I'd just like to point out that halfway through the game I handed the controller to a monkey that was sitting next to me.  In between swigs from his bottle of Johnny Walker Red and a crudely implemented hand signal tutorial from yours truly, he was able to pick up the basics of the game....

...yeah....that's my story and i'm sticking to it.

He was referring to Ridah, and I agree. Saying something "sucks" without even trying it is kind of lame, and doesn't do much for the credibility of your opinions.

And anything less than "phenomenal" ... sucks? Well enjoy the 4 or 5 games in your lifetime that will meet those crazy standards!  Tongue

Why some people review games they've never even played by stating that they "suck", and then expect people to take them seriously is beyond me.   Roll Eyes

it very well might.  however, unless you're future man traveling back in time to tell us about games we've yet to try, i'd keep your posts to something more like "It sounds like something I wouldn't like" instead of "it sucks!".  you just come across as a spiteful person with a bone to pick.

I was thinking the same thing.  Even when I go so far as to purchase a series on DVD to watch at my leisure, I never seem to find that time of leisure to actually watch the series I purchased. 

Most of us don't moonlight as a superhero known as "Fashionman"....

I thought it was Mister Fabulous.

Mister Fabulous was ditched after a tragic color scheme accident involving the half cape and boots.  plus, it was after labor day and the inclusion of a white logo was a big no no.  pete felt it was best to ditch the whole persona and start fresh with a hero metrosexuals could rally around.

Dang it, you guys are talking up the game so much that I'm finding my will to resist starting to fade.  Just one question:  how many actual game hours from missions and such can be found in mercs 2?  is it short, and then you just putz around with explosions?  or is there some real meat in there?

Spotted a few more tonight when I was at Target:

Grid [360] - $42
Frontlines: Fuel of War [360] - $42
Scene It (w/ controllers) [360] - $42
Viking: Battle for Asgard [360] - $20
Lost Odyssey [360] - $42
The Club [360] - $28

Madden 2009 Collector's Edition [PS3] - $62


FYI, both lost odyssey and the club just had a price drop on both new and used copies at gamestop.  i believe lost odyssey is at 35 and 39, while the club is around 14.99 and 19.99.

I'll sample both Fringe and Life on Mars, but I don't have high hopes for either (the BBC original of LoM was superb)

Taking Colm Meaney out and putting Harvey Keitel in was the kiss of death, as far as I'm concerned.  Meaney just looks like a Gene Hunt.  Keitel, while a great actor, is really way too old and too short for the role.

I'm happy to see Pushing Daisies back again. I thought that one was gone for good.  

Well, it's nominated for 12 Emmys, so ABC will probably give the show the 'Arrested Development' chance.

Let's hope so.  Pushing Daisies was one of my picks for the best show of the season last year.  The other would be Mad Men.

ah well, after the impulse buy fervor died down, i realized it may be best that i wait until some actual reviews before plopping down my cash.  i have WAY too big of a backlog to justify anything but the "must haves" right now.   tear

you know you want it..... you know you'll be back tomorrow to pick it up..... resistance is futile.....

 icon_lol  Normally you'd be right...I fold quicker than a lawnchain after Labor Day, but I just took a look at the list of games coming out on Sept. 15th/16th alone and it almost made me cry out in despair...Warhammer Online, Force Unleashed, the Stalker sequel, Witcher Enhanced.  I need to really be a discerning gamer right now!  Plus, I picked up Civ: Revolutions yesterday at GS with a 25 percent off coupon for used games and got it for 12 bucks with some old trade ins.  Hopefully that'll keep my occupied until the rush starts. 

p.s.  i may still fold though.  i'm the last person anyone should ever accuse of having willpower.   icon_wink

I know that personally I was eating WAY too much junk food.  Paying even a little attention to what I ate helped tremendously at first.  Looking back I'm amazed at how much I'd put away in a day.  Being able to say "no" to the cookies and cakes people leave in the office kitchen each morning is tough, but worth it!

Okay, down to 200 from 220.  Switched to a low carb diet after seeing a report in the New England Journal of Medicine that showed the results of a 3 year study.  Seems high cholesterol and weight were both significantly reduced in the low carb plan when compared to 3 other popular diets (low fat and another called the "Mediterranean diet").

Started the couch to 5k plan about 45 days ago.  I'm up to half mile run, quarter mile walk, rinse repeat ad nauseum.
