Seriously.  This place is getting to be as bad as XBox Live.

sadly...+1

"owned"?  if someone doesn't have a facebook account and sees only a box with a red x (which I initially did, until i looked at the properties for the image and saw it was a face book link and that the code was for profile badges) and they don't understand the "joke", i don't really consider them "owned".    icon_lol

as for the whole "calling people gay as an insult" thing, well...you're 9...that's okay at that age.  Eventually, your parents will explain to you what that means...either that or you'll find out when you get older and start to have feelings for people that your baptist upbringing calls "wrong".

I wanna thank Rockstar for making that last mission an f'ing nightmare.  I've tried 8 times to finish and 8 times i've failed.  mostly on that f'ing helicopter.  I seriously wanna throw my f'ing controller through the f'ing tv screen right now.  as it stands, i have a feeling i'm just going to trade it in before finishing it.  either that or just never f'ing finish it.  why does it have to be an f'ing multi part mission with no f'ing save anywhere during it??

...i need a drink.   mad

I liked it quite a bit.  The story was different than the usual run of the mill action rpg stuff, the combat was fun and the customization options seemed interesting.  The camera was a bit infuriating at times, but I'm sure it can be tweaked to my liking if I spend the time on it.  Definitely picking this one up.

hmmm...the description says "with a touch of comic relief" and that scares me a bit.  if it's batman providing some of the comic relief, i fear this will suck.  however, if they rely on plastic man and other supporting members for that stuff, then it might work.  i'm not a big fan of the art direction they're taking though.  it's too reminiscent of the superfriends in a lot of places, although the shot of the kid who turns into blue beetle looked like a bad "WB Kids" cheapy cartoon character.   icon_frown

I am all over it.  I just want a reason to go eat movie popcorn and I am a sucker for anything sci fi. 

I had the same thought...about the popcorn, that is.  I have to do some server maintenance later tonight so i took off early from work and started thinking about popcorn.  I therefore stopped off at the theater near my apartment to see Step Brothers (I'm a sucker for anything featuring both Ferrell and Reilly together).  15 minutes before the end of the friggin' film, the power goes out in the entire building.   mad

...the rest of the movie was hilarious, though.  It drags a bit every now and then when they get TOO silly, but hearing the goofy non sequiturs that Ferrell's character yells out whenever he's suddenly awakened in the movie just cracked me up:

"I will KILL you, Leonard Nimoy!"

"I will kiss you full on the mouth, Kenny Rogers!"

Check out your nearest Target.  They had this on their clearance shelves for a while for under 20 bucks (i think it was more like 10 bucks at one point) and it was the gold edition with the expansion.  If I see a copy, I'll let you know in case you want it.

Also, your personal note mentions the Samsung 4266W.  that's the same damn tv i have.  good and cheap.   icon_biggrin

Ouch, 29% at Rottentomatoes .  I'm an X-Files fan from way back.  However, I've always believed that Chris Carter had a good idea, but was just an awful, awful writer.  The only moments from the series that really shine for me are the self-contained monster episodes that he DIDN'T write.  When I saw that he was going to be one of the writers for the new movie, I kind of suspected it was going to be bad.  Then I started seeing some posts on various boards stating that it was really just a mess of a film.

I do believe this is the last we'll see of Scully and Mulder, unfortunately.   icon_cry

ditto for the level design complaints.  it really does become "same old, same old" after a few hours in the area of exploration.  the gameplay is fun though, and the story starts off strong only to limp to the finish line towards the end of the game.  hopefully the sequel fleshes it out and makes it more interesting.

You can put 75 hours into Oblivion (+40 for the PC version) but you complain about "same old" in a 10 hour FPS? slywink Tongue

In my 75 hours into Oblivion (+40 for the PC version) I don't recall being forced to spend 50 percent of it in a garage and the other 50 percent in office cubicles.  In Oblivion, if I didn't like the scenery, I could turn left, right, go forward or go backwards and I'd soon find something different.  In FEAR, I could go foward or I could go...well...forward.   icon_razz

Regarding the ferry scene; did you guys think that even though he said the other ferry would explode when the switch was pulled, it would actually blow up their own ship?  That's what I figured was going to happen.  The ol' Joker switch-a-roo.

Side note:  It was interesting to see Zeus back in action slywink

Quote from: Ridah on July 24, 2008, 12:46:45 AM

I have to ask: How do some of you log so much time into Oblivion? I understand that, technically, there is a wealth of content which would take hundreds of hours to go through. However, I noticed when playing that many of the quests and the locations they took place in were nearly carbon copies of eachother with minor differences. I love exploring in games, but the point of exploring is to discover new things, whereas in Oblivion it felt like I was just discovering more of the same things. What keeps you going through this repetition of similar content?

i kind of agree with you on the issue of "sameness" in the game when it comes to dungeons and such, but the number of really good quests with great stories made that shortcoming less an issue for me.  Plus, i've had the game for years now (bought the CE the day it came out  icon_wink), so i've had time to take a break from it, return to it, rinse, repeat.  i honestly don't see myself every trading this one in. 

and when i noted the 75 hours i put into it, i forgot to add the 40 or so hours i've put into the PC version I picked up after I found it on sale at a Target a while back.  needed to play the game with mods, you see.  icon_smile

Add Splinter Cell Double Agent to my list of BC games I've played without problems. To be fair I have only completed the 1st 2 levels, but so far not a single issue. And man does it look nice for an Xbox game! If it wasn't for the occasional slightly more noticeable aliasing I'd swear it was a 360 game. I wish I still had my Xbox so I could draw a comparison, but I'm guessing it wouldn't look quite as good on the original. It also helps that it's panning out to be a heckuva good SC game.  slywink

do you mean "Chaos Theory"?  Double Agent is actually available as a 360 game.

Living in Chicago near Devon Avenue (the largest population of Indian/Pakistani for 3 states) I can't escape the stuff.  Do you have a large Indian population nearby that might have some specialty stores with incense?

Gellar laughs at those people, which suddenly makes the joke funny.

I know this is complex, but try to keep up.

my initial response was "sadly, it's more damning for those who claim to find it funny."  if you didn't find it funny, you should have assumed you weren't part of the "you" group I then mentioned.
