okay,i think its best to leave that one alone now,i dont want to upset people on here,and if i have already then i am sorry

Seriously?  You can't just walk into a room, loudly announce 'Where were all the bodies, if Hitler killed so many Jews?', and then go "La la la la la!" the minute people start refuting you, and claim that you meant no offense and that the subject is now closed.


i wasnt going to post again as i have offended so many of you..

for one,as i have said,i didnt make this up,it was in Loose change the internet movie that came out about 5 years or so ago(and numerous sites
http://911review.org/Wiki/PentagonAttack.shtml)

...and out of all the things it said in that movie,about the twin towers,about the pentagon,it was the Pentagon one that caught me...as i am sure a lot of other people who saw that film also thought at the time


i more presumed a lighter type aircraft had flown into the Pentagon,instead of a 757..at least thats the vibe i got from the film

but... you have all explained that some of you had friends there who saw it happen,or all the plane was melted from the heat ...you have explained it...as i said on an above post i am no expert,i just thought it was odd that you couldnt see in the pictures pieces of plane,maybe they(the Goverment) had censored the photos(or at least that was one of my thoughts),as the Pentagon is a highly top secret government building...



maybe like some youtube videos show,that a missile was attached to the bottom of the plane,and it fired just before impact,and therefor made it somewhat different than a normal plane crash..or maybe that little blur on the youtube video is nothing of any significance..but as Yellowking says above there are sites that debunk that idea as well


one thing i would like to make clear is i am not out to disrespect the lives that was lost on that plane,it was a sad day and hopefully one that the U.S and other countries can learn from to prevent anything like this from happening again

again sorry if i have offended you,if you wish to carry on talking about this subject (i wasnt closing the subject because people werent agreeing with me,i was trying to close the subject because i had seemed to of caused a lot of anger,which is the last thing i wish to do),then i am fine with that but not if it is going to cause any grief with any of you

i am i think about half way through disc 1,done quite a few side quests,whish when you accept,they take you to the place in question straight away and then back to the pub when you have finished ..so thats handy


Spoiler for Hiden:
i think i am about to go to war,Emma is staying behind to look after the city



there are lots of hints about things like heading into the sewers,or maybe moving that big guy in the town square,who refuses to move saying it is his favourite spot..i am guessing there will be a way to get to these places in disc 2

The CIA was known to invest in Remote Viewing. What better way to spy than having a few people sit around conference rooms in VA drawing pictures of events in Russia? More waste of taxpayer money.


we do it in another way,and get caught

Left near a tree on a nondescript street on the outskirts of Moscow, the fake rock at the centre of the most embarrassing espionage scandal between Britain and Russia since the end of the cold war looks innocuous enough.
Light brown, 30 centimetres wide, and hollowed out to allow a waterproof box to fit snugly inside, the rock yesterday took on Gibraltar-sized proportions as Russia accused Britain of using it as a covert transmitter to pass messages to agents.

An x-ray of the box, shown on Russian state television, showed four big batteries and a radio transmitter-receiver tightly packed together - a device of such crude simplicity it would have made Q, James Bond's technical wizard, shudder.

but didnt the Pentagon have holes in its outer and inner walls,of just 8ft high/wide?..i think it got through 3 walls,if you know how i mean...as for Eye witnesses,not really sure i have actually heard anything from anyone on this one..not that i can remember

sorry,but i am still not entirely sold on this one..the building is still on fire here!!


Seeing as how I know people who actually watched the plane hit the Pentagon, this is not cool, at all.

i am not out to call people liars,but not everyone in the world was there when it happend at the same spot where your friend was,in fact all the footage from security cameras was taken away(bar 1 i think) and not allowed to be shown,these pictures are pretty much all we have

and when a Boeing 757 hits a building,doesnt leave any really recognisable wreckage,and the engines,which are pretty damn big would be buried under all the grass,and no sign of a tail section...now from an outsiders point of view,you can't be suprised after seeing that, that this is what some people think

again this theory has been around for ages,i'm not the one making it up...and i am definetly not calling your friends liars

metalli, buying into the the idea that the first moon landing was faked is the same as buying into all moon landings being faked.  You've seen the bad arguments and bad evidence against, and have already read the proper, scientific, and rational debunking and explanations for those arguments and evidence.  Thinking the first landing was faked is in some ways worse than believing in those photos of big foot and the loch ness monster, after all, we have much more evidence that all the landings were real.

i dont think you are all getting what i am on about here..infact i have no idea why you keep thinking its me who is saying all this,i am the one posting it,but these 'theories' have been around for years.The title of this topic is 'Area 51 and other Government lies'...as none of you or me know that any of the above is real or not,i gave you another one...thats all

i was just pointing out the whole reason/s why this conspiracy is here ..and as i said i would be more open to the first one being faked to win the space race and to put JFKs words into truth...i wouldnt go about and say it was faked,but if it came out that it was and for those reasons i could understand it,(you guys WERE in the middle of the Cold War afterall)....and believeing that the others wouldnt of been faked because the first one was(if that turned out to be the case<<<please read)...why?,how hard would it be to replicate the moon landing?..not very really..i mean,have you seen the beginning of Superman II?(er...not the Paris part,but the Moon part)

that wiki page i posted shows all the arguements about it,and debunks pretty much all of it,answers peoples questions(yes,even the shadows not pointing in the right way)

as i said in a post above

Quote
i mean,when you first hear that the moon landings were faked,you think bollocks(EDIT:AS IN THATS BULLSHIT),but when people come up with stuff(the shadows,if Neil Armstrong was the first on the moon,then who shot the footage??,the stars and stripes flag fluttering or even the fact why we havent been back etc)..you can(EDIT:<<<<did you read that?...i said CAN...not will or do) start to think...hmm...but perhaps thats what it is all designed to do,to put doubt in yours/ours/anybodys government.


these poeple come with these questions..and at the time you think ..'oh yeah'..but it isnt until NASA or whoever explains it the reasons for the fluttering flag or the shadows or no stars whatever,that you click on and find out,exactly why these things are like that...i dont know any of you personally but before NASA had answered any of those,could you of answered them?...and thats why these things stick until the Governing body explains it all(now if only they would open their mouth about other things)




but i stick with what i said last post..why the hell didnt we build a moon base ASAP,it would be much easier,quicker and prolly cost effective in the long run to launch our probes/satellites/telescopes from there


oh BTW:that loch ness monster photo has been proved a fake anyway(well,the guy admitted to faking it about 60 years after he took it)..not sure if the Bigfoot photo has been proved fake or not..the one in the freezer has been from a few months ago though,LOL

oh lordy, you can not be serious. cause the sun doesn't shine in space right? i mean it only extends as far as the earth and suddenly drops off in space!  the moon does in fact have a small atmosphere, wind is entirely possible. we haven't been back because our gov't is fuckign stupid and rather waste billions on stupid companies than actual scientific discoveries. we are returning in 2015, btw. oh ffs, we're building a god damn space station. we have sent a probe to mars and another is going in 2011 that is way more advance. we have been the moon numerous times. wtf would gov't even begin to lie about something like that? jesus christ. as for the footage pretty sure they had an external camera. do you think we just went to the moon w/o sending probes. LOOOOOOOOL.

yeah okay....(i didnt say there wasnt shadows...the sun shining created shadows that was the wrong angle from what they should of been on the moons surface..or so it is said)...just found it fun to mention.there is also a point they did it to back up the late JFKs announcement,we would put a man on the moon by the end of the decade(the 60s)..it happened in 1969

and i am more open to the fact that the 1969 moon landing was fake(or at least i wouldnt be suprised if it came out as fake)..and they actually really landed on the moon some time later,originally faking it to win the space race with Russia ..i think the last time we were on the moon was something like 1973(not sure)

these have all been said and talked about before,i am just putting them up here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_Landing_Faked

i would of thought that a moon base would of been more ideal,and then go from the moon to mars with our probes or telescope on the moon etc etc

again there are worse stuff out there,LOL

i think in this case you have to decide what to believe....but really,WTF happened at the Pentagon????...where was the airplane???
(that was prolly the biggest WTF in the documentary for me)

The airplane was in a ton of tiny pieces, consistent with high-speed airline crashes into a reinforced building. A lot of the supposed photos that show no debris were selectively chosen, or taken after debris clean up. If you do a little internet research, you can find plenty of evidence that totally debunks the idea that the Pentagon was hit with a cruise missile, remote-controlled aircraft, or whatever.

Documentaries that focus on "evidence" like the no plane theory tend to leave out the evidence that contradicts their theory - like the fact that hundreds of eyewitnesses physically saw the plane crash into the building.

as for Vietnam,i just saw this when browsing the game section on Play.com

 


Shellshock:'Nam 67 was one of i think the 3 (with conflict:Vietnam and Vietcong:purple haze)that came out at the same time on the xbox1,i remember liking all of them,so this one has definetly got my interest


EDIT:sorry i should of posted this about the game that was on play.com

Shellshock 2:Blood Trails
Quote
At the height of the Vietnam War, a covert ops cargo plane carrying a top-secret consignment known only as 'Whiteknight' is lost over the deepest, uncharted jungles. Special Ops soldiers are immediately dispatched to the scene to retrieve the top secret shipment and one-by-one they disappear without a trace... until one month later, one of them suddenly walks out of the jungle. Crazed and deranged, something in the jungle had ripped out his humanity, poisoning his soul. Something in the darkness had driven him mad... and followed him out.

Taking the first-person war game and turning it on its head, Shellshock 2: Blood Trails places you in a war where fear takes on a whole new meaning.

if this happens,then depending on how HOME turns out,i think i may sell my PS3,i turned it on last night for the first time in 2 months,and that was because my 360 stopped playing Jackie Brown half way through so i tried it on the PS3 to make sure the disc still worked..not sure why it wouldnt play Jackie Brown after 30 minutes

and yeah the ! is whats above the soldiers heads when they spot Snake..and then just blended in with the 360 power button,thats what i see..as a few of you have already said..but i am not sure hwo the little sum came about to the 360 power button...i dont get the upside down exclamation point

i got the email today just showing the logo that the link that Kev supplied






i certainly hope it is the MGS4 360....even if the box is like Semiconscious showed,i am sold...

adding to what Kev said in his last post-wasnt there also a lot of rumours saying that it was PS3 exclusive for the first year when the game was due out for the PS3?

and i am all for every major Metal gear game to be ported to the 360...i remember rumours saying there would be the original MGS on XBLA and PSN

i know this one has prolly been said a lot and i know that this one may cut deep with a lot of you,but a few weeks ago i watched the 9/11 internet doc-Loose Change(second time i had seen it since it first came out)..and yeah some of it felt very far fetched,i think one point they said the passengers of flight 93 weren't really on that flight and they are in a bunker in area 51 somewhere...that to me felt far fetched...

...but some other stuff that was mentioned really got me thinking

i think in this case you have to decide what to believe....but really,WTF happened at the Pentagon????...where was the airplane???
(that was prolly the biggest WTF in the documentary for me)

as for Area 51..i watched a documentary on Discovery or Bravo(the real home of the truth,LOL)and they were saying that we got inventions like Fibre optics and Microchips from the crashed spaceship from Roswell...i like to watch those ones,but i take it all with a pinch of salt though

i am pretty sure something went on back in 1947(didnt the Army first admit to capturing a UFO then the next day deny it and say it was a weather ballon?)..whether it really was a UFO...well,


@Razgon

do you remember in Hellboy,when the guy from the agency(Tom Manning played by Jeffrey Tambor)was trying to deny to a studio audience that if Hellboy exists,then why are the pictures always fuzzy?----that for me,is the same for UFO's,why arent there pictures of these UFOs like perfect clarity close encounters of the third kind clarity(blu-ray of course,LOL)

Conversation, meaning someone in the next cube here at work.  I hadn't brought it up here when you did.  Actually, I my post was in regard to seeing you had already btought it up when I came in here to do what you already had. 

ahh,gotcha...i think its been brought up many a time,..and also the fact that we would like to see a lot of other wars,WWI being a popular one as well...and why not Korea,i think for people outside of North America it would be a good war to educate people(i for one,whether its because i am in the UK i dont know,know not that much about that war)

The war is sometimes called The Forgotten War or The Unknown War because it is a major conflict of the 20th century that gets far less attention than World War II, which preceded it, and the Vietnam War, which succeeded it


Vietnam though with COD4 engine could very well be the dogs bollocks,the bee's knees or the cats tits..no matter how many more COD games come out,i think there will always be an audience wanting for that one

as much as i loved COD4,and COD:world at war..i am not as nearly as excited about this one,that modern combat 2 subtitle pretty much sounds like an add on,or maybe even going down Ghost Recon path(except 1st person),and just being more of the same
(especially when this type of game is more important for the online for me....which just means more maps really)

i would of preffered it to be called Call of Duty 5,as i'm fusy like that..this seems like they are trying to restart a franchise,when the franchise didnt/doesnt need to

and sci-fi direction?...good god no!!...you know where Halo is if you want that

TBH,not sure what to think..i grew up playing the first alot(on PC)bought the second for PC and finished it and then quickly rebought it for the 360(and stuck to the 360 ever since),and it just seems as though its going now in a direction that i dont want..it was nice for a one off to go in another direction,but for them(IW)to stick there,i was hoping they would bounce about(different wars,if people are bored with WWII...dare i say Vietnam)

medal of honor was a lot better last time round,so this will prolly be where i get my WWII kicks from now on,once W@W becomes old

but dont mind me,i am sure i will prolly warm up to this before its released disgust

so,there are two free DLC on there,ones a key ,can't remember what the other thing is..there are two more DLC packs due this month,one free one costing 100mp

i dont think any of the DLC will effect me yet though,as i dont think i am that far into the first disc still

there was British MAD for a time,but it didnt sell very well..it stopped about 1995 ish.since then i have had to import from U.S...i also went to Greece in 1992,and have an issue from there(i got the UK equivalant as well,the only differece is the price and a few articles in different places)

i have a few issues that are old(ish),1 or 2 from 1984ish....Gremlins i think is on the front cover..and a reprint of the first issue that came free with the new issue at the time


funny actually i haven't even picked up a copy of MAD since i stopped getting it late last year

Mort Drucker was prolly my favourite artist,followed by Al Jaffe and Sergio Aragones...but Drucker made the funniest carrictures of the famous

Remember in the original post where I said I've read Mass Effect Revelation and that I'll probably pick up Mass Effect: Ascension?  retard disgust icon_razz




LOL,sorry Lettuce,i missed that

i heard there was a Resident Evil book,if done right that could be good..but then again if done wrong it could be very bad
13073  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Good Books Set In Video Game Universes? on: November 30, 2008, 02:32:48 PM
Mass Effect:Revelation was a book i enjoyed,it made the universe of mass effect even more expanse,set before the goings on of the video game,but still has Mass Effect side characters Saren and Anderson





EDIT:and ATB's gone?...when did that happen and howcome?

i stumbled through it all now and i have now got the option to hire soldiers(banther fodder)for my unions,however also at this point..david and co are no longer guests,so you can use them however you see fit.....but as i can only have 3 unions at this time,someone sits on the sideline,and as i didnt know about david and co being with you,i hired 9 soldiers as well,so i have 3 unions with 3 people in,and about 9 people(at least 2 leaders..Emma is one of them and banther fodder)on the sidelines......just hope my union limit goes up soon..then i can really kick some ass

is there a way to get people into your union when going to blakedale or whatever? the 2nd time you hook up with david and gang they are quests so it's just you in a union. like 2 hits and im dead and it's game over. wtf seriously.

i let Rush 'stand by' so that he doesnt get involved as much,and let the actual fighters,the real fighters do/get the damage(that second time you are with David,he brings like 10 fighters with him)..and of course hire some leaders from the guilds

but i would also like to get people into my union,at the guild the only people to hire are leaders..which isnt that great as i already hired 3 leaders...one of them is on the sidelines because at the moment i cant make more than two unions,that one for me(with no one in it but me) and one with two people in it

well,Battlefield was Battlefield..whereas Pandemic,you could argue stole the name and changed it a little to Battlefront

Star Wars battlefront 1 and 2 were some of the greatest online battles,lots of fun...if you cant shoot at Nazi's..what else is there?..thats right,Stormtroopers







now star wars battlefront 3,has rumoured to be passed over to Free Radical(still no official word)

Pandemic,while this was happening got bought out(or taken in,however you see it) by EA...whether that is a good thing i dont know,but it then enabled Pandemic to do Lord of the Rings,as EA had the license

here is a youtube video of some game play of LOTR:Conquest..its been out for a few months now,and there are a few more vids on youtube,you should check them out,but yeah Lettuce,basically its the same but swords,bow and arrows,and prolly the odd magic

single player,looks good,but its online where the action will be

There are 2 computer game shops in the town where i live.

You have The Game and Gamestation. NOw both are now owned by the same company. Recently i have noticed they have been doing a few little tricks. LAst weeks deal of the week was Fable at 29.99 and was only available at The Game and out of stock at Gamestation.

This week i went in The Game to see about Last Remanant and they had none on sale anywhere, immediately i thought bet it's on offer in Gamestation, popped down there and there it was 24.99 and was that price today when i popped in again.

Gamestation also had Viva Pinata Trouble in Paradise and Ninja Gaiden for 30 for both so picked them up too, yet Trouble in Paradise was 30 on it's own in Game.

Only noticable thing is overall there is less on offer it used ot be both had offes running now it's normally only 1 or the other or just 1 or 2 games each on offer. Gamestation does seem noticably cheaper on used games. Also Fable 2 is 19.99 online at Gamestation which is another good price.

i didnt know the same company owned them two,i know that GAME took over Electronics Boutique(EB) a few years ago,those shops are no more and got replaced with GAME

the nearest gamestation for me is in manchester town centre,and thats about an hour or so away

I picked this up cheap a few days ago. Surprised it was reduced so quickly as it's only been out 10 days. Still 39.99 down to 24.99 isn't a bad deal for  game i almost got at full price.

Installing it makes a big difference to performance as well. Not had much chance to play it though as there is just so much good stuff to play i find myself playing too many games for a short space rather than just 1 at a time.


WHAT???...i just picked it up for 39.99(this morning)...any suprises that it was GAME that i picked it up from,robbing sods..i was expecting it to be 34.99

i didnt even attempt to play the game from disc,i heard too many bad things about it,so i installed all 12.6 gig of the 2 discs...from what i have played (about 2hrs)i can see some pop in textures when the scene starts but other than that its fine

(for those with the 20gig HDD i have heard you can install one disc at a time,play to the end of disc 1 and then install disc 2,after deleting disc 1..as you know the game saves are seperate..just incase people with 20gigs saw it was 12.6 gig and thought,well thats me out..especially as you only get 13gig anyway,LOL)

that first town you get to looks and feels exactly like FF12(with what Stitchjones above kinda said)..even down to similar 'beasts' in the towns and the thought bubbles above the persons heads,the colours and the clothes as well...not that any of that is a bad thing..its nowhere near as big as FF12 towns,perhaps the towns will be bigger later on in the game

not really sure about it going to city map everytime you cross the threshold to another location..i think i would prefer it to just take me to the next location which it is joined to...but yeah its quicker if you want to go straight to the castle from say the entrance


the fighting/battles i am still a little wary of,i have fought about a dozen battles and to tell you the truth i am stumbling through them...either pressing attack,or attack with spiritual arts like that frog guy told me to.....cureing myself with the herbs hasnt really been needed yet..i have been saving my game a lot,as i died and had to reload from my last save point and i found that it was about an hour past,still its a good way to get used to the system

graphics look good,do the job,the voices are ..well,so-so up to now...not sure about the music though,seems a bit 'in your face' all the time..or 'in your ears',LOL

i am still very early in the game,so any of the above can change

and even though the guide came out here yesterday,i couldnt find it in the two GAME shops i hit.....which means i will be on the net no doubt like i was with IU

okay i found it

its pretty hard to get,its actually in 'Little resistance' level(the second level)

you have to jump in and out of pools of water on the beach just after you use the airstrike for the first time

thankfully though,instead of me explaining it,you can watch it on this spiffing youtube vid
