Why do I look at it and see Star Ship Troopers? icon_confused

Because the aliens in the movie were based on the Zerg?

Or the Zerg were based on the aliens in Starship Troopers novel written in 1959.

I always thought the Starcraft races were pretty much based off of Warhammer 40K myself.

Blizzard stole stuff from all over the place (out of love I'm sure).  I see lots of Alien influence.  "We're in for some chop".

Many unit responses in their RTS games are taken from nerd-culture references.  Any time I would get a new unit I would click on it until I heard all of their lines hehe.

I'm doing the same thing.  I got a bunch of DVD's going back that they'll be recieving on Monday (they'll ship out new releases for that week on Monday) so I might get lucky.

Woo hoo my timing was perfect, they're shipping No Country on Blu-Ray to me today!!

Bah! My cell phone receives it's time changes through my phone company itself. Last year I didn't know that. I couldn't figure out a way to change it myself so I set the alarm in it to account for it. Some time during the morning, it switched over automatically by receiving a signal from a tower or something, I guess. And of course my alarm was off by an hour.

This year it STILL hasn't updated. I know my way around the phone relatively well by now and there's no way to change the time yourself.  mad

Have you power cycled your phone?  That should trigger the update for sure.

If you're looking at spending 30+ per movie and HD movies is critical, get the PS3.

Gotta throw in the Netflix card on this one to be realistic.  For the cost of owning one blu-ray movie you can easily rent more twenty from Netflix with just their standard plan.

yeah, but it can take forever to get them.   Hopefully they start getting more copies of Blu Ray movies in so it doesn't take as long.

I've not had this issue at all in SF, CA.

And you can easily find brand new blu-ray movies on eBay for ~20 or less.  I've bought 300 and Ratatouille for less than $20 on eBay, both brand new and sealed.

I have been given clearance from the Wife to procure a next gen. system.  After doing a ton of reading I still can't decide.  The Xbox 360 has a ton more games but the PS3 is more feature rich, future proof, and possibly reliable (jury still out on the newest version of xbox?).  I think i'm leaning towards the XBOx because of the games.  I went to the store yesterday and only came up with a couple of games I would want right now on the PS3 that were not cross plat titles.  The pull of Bioshock and Mass effect is strong however as my current PC will have no hope of playing them.  Looking into the future doesn't help much as they both have some interesting exclusives on the horizons and I have been reading good things about developers unlocking the PS3's potential.  This is a seriously tough decision now.

Even though I love this PS3, if I could only get 1 to start with it would definitely be a 360 because of the MP community and the number of games/exclusives that I enjoy.

Well after a couple weeks of ownership now I absolutely love the PS3.  I'm still playing my 360 also, so keep those SDf badges away. 

Pixel Junk Monsters is so wonderful looking and such a fun game to play.  Simple to start but difficult to master, Blizzard-style.  I also got Super Stardust HD, which is glorious looking and sounding.  As previously mentioned, Uncharted is a godly game.  I also got the full version of R&C and it's great looking as well, and a fun departure from a FPS, but still a shooter, which I like.

The UI is so slick, the whole system just seems slick.  I'm definitely glad to be on board with both systems!

I'm a bit dissapointed in the 'scale' of the game, but after GoW2, I can't imagine them finding a way to outdo the setpieces of that game on a handheld.

Yeah, I fired up GoW 2 again for a bit last night (and wow does it look amazing upscaled on PS3) and I just don't think you can get any more epic than that. 

They seem to be going for an epic feel in Chains of Olympus by pulling the camera really far back frequently and it's effective, but also kind of weird on a platform witih such a tiny screen- there have been times where Kratos has sort of blended into the background with the enemies and I can't figure out who's who.

I'm hoping that they port it to PS2- as much as I'm enjoying it on PSP, I would love to play it on the big screen upscaled. 

GoW and GoW 2 were reasons I miss BC in my PS3.  Hopefully it'll make a software comeback sometime in the future, so I can play both these games.

Hey guys, late to the party.  So I am confused about this one....is it a game or a demo?

It's essentially a demo that has a lot of content in it.  And it's pretty much a "sneak peak" as to the whole game, which who knows when will be coming out.

Ah ok thanks.  I don't really like driving games much but I think I'll get this one just to see the eye candy.  Sure looks nice.

Anyone considering getting Bully on the 360 might want to wait.  I'm seeing some pretty widespread reports that it's a buggy mess (crashes, audio issues, godawful framerate, etc). 

Good thing it's now so easy to patch console games!  crybaby

I can confirm at least one hard freeze during play.  Framerate has been pretty good, though.  There are patches where it gets smoother, but normal framerate is fine.

EDIT TO ADD:  Man, this sucks.  I know I won't keep playing now and wait for a patch.  This will totally kill any momentum I had.  Same thing happened with the Shivering Isles.  That item leak issue kept me from playing for months, and when it was fixed, I didn't have anywhere near as much interest in playing.

We have just become aware of the issues people are having with Bully Scholarship Edition on Xbox 360. It appears that some older 360s are experiencing framerate issues, freezes and other problems. You have our word that we never experienced any of this in QA - in any of our offices or at Microsoft. I am horrified, and we are now working around the clock to rectify this situation. Thanks to Neo-Gaf for bringing this matter to our attention. We love our games and put a huge amount of energy and care into making them all that they can be. We would never shove anything out the door - we never have and never will. We apologise to everyone affected for the inconvenience. Respectfully, Sam Houser
