Wireless to the 360 (when my internet is actually up) and I can download most things in 5 mins or less.

Neat trailer.  Looks to be a super fun game.  Now if only I could get it on my consoles!

Yeah the wire I'm trying with is the wire that feeds the signal into my house.  It's the weirdest thing.  The tech's meter can sync properly and shows amazing stats, but the way he explained it to me is that the meter only uses a 2MB packet, whereas the the gateway requires a 25 MB connection.  It just doesnt' make sense how my wiring would all of a sudden die on me.
11688  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Internet at home down on: February 28, 2008, 05:39:51 PM
Well that's the weird thing.  My townhouse is 3 years old.  I've had DSL in some form since the day I moved in.  There's cat5 to an outlet in every room.  Sunday it just died and for some reason no one can figure out why.   crybaby

Sadly the senior dood wasn't able to fix mine.  He's been out the last two days in a row.   mad
11690  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Internet at home down on: February 28, 2008, 05:18:04 PM
Sadly no one knows.  They are leaning towards an internal wiring issue because they can't figure it out.  I like in a townhouse so they can't just string up a new wire, or so they say.  If the final verdict is IW issue, then I'm going to have to fight with the HOA to string a new wire up.  So very annoying.
11691  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Internet at home down on: February 28, 2008, 05:08:37 PM
My Internet at home has been down since Sunday.  Multiple techs have not been able to restore.  I'm limited to interwebs at work only.  It's kind of driving me a bit crazy.  Anyone else been down this road and survived?

Fixed that up for ya.

Yeah wasn't it completely missing.  Blame Lucasarts for pushing it out the door.  It would probably have been amazing if publishers would just let the devs finish properly.

I finally picked this up after playing it a few times at a friend's house.  All I can say is that hard mode on Rock Band is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more fun than hard mode on GH3!

Yep and way more fun than GH2, imo.

I got my DS3 that I ordered on eBay yesterday and it's nice.  Much more weight to it.  I thought my original controller was empty inside at first.  Nice surprise to find that it works with Pixel Junk Monsters.

11700  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The Dyatlov Pass Incident on: February 27, 2008, 05:30:53 PM
This is a neat read that was in the local paper today.  It's from a mysterious event that occurred in Russia in the 50s and was never properly solved.

Try this link:

http://www.sfgate.com/columnists/morford/

should only work for a day or so and then I'll see if it can be updated.  This is the OG article from sfgate.com where I found the link the the st pete's times article

I thought MGS1 was amazing.  2 was horrible and that's the last one I played.  I'm excited about this one though.
11703  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MGS4 Release Date on: February 26, 2008, 09:07:13 PM
Well if I didn't just buy a PS3 I would for sure get this bundle.  I think it's a nice package for those waiting to come on board.  It's not so good though that it makes me regret getting a system now, instead of waiting until June, which is quite a bit of game time away!
11704  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: MGS4 Release Date on: February 26, 2008, 08:00:39 PM
The PS3 bundle is official.  $499

I grew a beard about a year ago and I like it.  I keep it clean though, no ZZ-Top.  Part of it was because I got tired of shaving.  Part of it was because I want to be King Leonidas.

11710  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Are game controllers too complicated? on: February 26, 2008, 04:08:47 PM
I saw this article at Kotaku and it got me thinking:

http://kotaku.com/360832/harrison-molyneux-agree-+-controllers-are-too-complicated

I can see where people are coming from, but if future consoles go the way of the Wii and their Wii-mote, I'm not going to be a happy gamer.  Do you guys think that game controllers are getting too complicated?  Do you think the industry is going to change to more basic controls in the next round?

After being skeptical of Transformers and having that movie rock my socks off, I am eagerly anticipating GI Joe the movie.  And if it sucks, I'll just remember Cobra-la and the original GI Joe movie and still be happy.

Hey guys, if you leave your theme and color as original, is it supposed to change colors on you at random?
11713  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: February 26, 2008, 02:46:58 PM
Hmm that sucks to hear.  I do enjoy drumming, so I'll be picking these up any way.  More load times, inc!

Have you seen their stocks today? Up 50%.  I could give a shit less what the experts say - that stock bump is probably the more telling factor.

Doesn't it have to do that though.  EA offered them a premium of like $10 a share.  If the market keeps trading at $17 and EA is offering $26, then people can make a fortune off the deal.  This way, the gain is only pennies.  At least, that's how I always figured it.
11715  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rock Band Impressions! on: February 25, 2008, 05:36:28 PM
Chaz, I heard this on the radio this morning and I remembered it from the 90s!  Would be fun for Rock Band.

Gellar I am 6 mos into 30 and it's changed man.  I used to be able to eat steaks at midnight and lose weight.  Go boozing for days on end and it was like metabolism fuel.  I'm still healthy weight, 6-2, ~180, but man it's really a shock when you have to go to the gym just to maintain because the pounds don't just drop off from doing nothing.

WEll according to a podcast I heard recently, Madden sales for 2007 (or 8 whichever one came out most recently) were far lower than previous years. Perhaps they want to gobble up new talent to buttress that brand?

Not like they have any competition anyway...
