Hehe, there, I said it for you.

5202  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: New Tupac Album This Year, Petition For Original Recordi on: October 27, 2004, 06:01:42 AM
Quote from: "\/\/olverine"

The Petition: Even if you are not a fan of Tupac's music, as a fan of art and music in general I stress the importance of becoming aware of this issue and signing the petition. This petition is against reworkings and additions to the artist's original vision of his work, the fact that people who did not even know the artist are altering his work is blasphemous and disprespectful to any artist who has ever had pride in his or her work. Can you imagine changing historical works from Leonardo Da Vinci in order to create a more "modernly appealing" version? Unacceptable.

Again, please sign the petition and make your voice known.

WHOA now.  This petition is a farce.  Music (well, if you can even call what Tupac did music) is reimagined all the time.  For example, every time a new classical CD comes out by a different orchestra under the baton of a different conductor, the music is different from its original presentation.  Does this make the album bad?  NO.  The music is re-recorded because it is respected.  The individuals re-recording Tupac's whatever probably respect what he's done, which is WHY THEY ARE DOING IT.  That Da Vinci analogy is wholly inaccurate in this case.

You really need to chill out if this sort of thing bothers you.

Be sure to clean up your mess after spending the night with the game, LE.

The free throw change made this game an automatic IN for me.

Anyone up for online play/possible league or tourney?

I claim UNC.

Didn't get out today, but I might swing by the Tower in Alexandria (off Duke/LRT) after work tomorrow.

Any updates?

Hey Driver.  Don't you have an ESPN NFL 2K5 league game to worry about before you get too far into golf?  We're waiting for you and stiffler to play so we can advance to week 5.

Or, even better, how much dough would it take for you to part with your eagerly anticipated San Andreas?

If someone walked up to me, after I left the store with the game today, and offered me anything more than what I paid for it, I'd strongly consider taking it.

5209  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / My big score at Tower Records today on: October 24, 2004, 07:02:59 PM
Nope.  It was the Tower on West Ox Road out in the Fair Oaks/Fair Lakes area of Fairfax County.

To answer the last two questions:

No more Ninja Gaiden.  I got the last copy.

Yes, they were on clearance.  I think they're killing the video game selection at the Fairfax store.  I don't know if it's the same way anywhere else.  Let me know if it is when you go check, though!

5211  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / [FF] Normally I wouldn't ask, but HELP! on: October 24, 2004, 07:23:39 AM
I'd go with your first two choices.

You know, the guys at my store told me to just call at 5, and if they have it, walk in, show my "paid in full" receipt, get handed game, walk out of store.  No word of any lines or any of that nonsense.

Then again, maybe it's just because I've paid in full.  Is everyone else just doing the bare minimum deposit, or fully paid?

5213  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / My big score at Tower Records today on: October 24, 2004, 05:24:06 AM
I went into Tower Records in Fairfax, VA today to do some CD browsing.  Ever since I've been going to this tower, they've had a small video game section.  Nothing major, a few of the newer titles, a lot of the older ones, almost all at $49.99.  Today I went in, and EVERYTHING, and I mean EVERYTHING, was marked at $9.99 or less.  I walked out of the store with the following titles, brand new and sealed, for $40 + tax total:

Ninja Gaiden
Splinter Cell
Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow
LOTR: Return of the King

W00t, I say, w00t!  Beats the TRU buy 2 get 1 free anyday.

I have you all beat!  My Gamestop told me 5 PM Monday. smile

But, they also said I should call first to make sure.  So it might wind up being later.

5215  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Netflix - did they cut their price? on: October 22, 2004, 02:51:07 AM
November 1, dbt, is the date of the price change for Netflix.

There are no load times outside.  Only when you go into and out of a building.

Yay.  So much better than the load time whenever you crossed a bridge between the halves of Vice City.  biggrin

No!! Please, God!! Don't do this to me!!  :x

Bwahahahaha!   :twisted:

Yep, current rumor has it that, with Kennedy out at least half the season, the Angels are looking to sign Nomar, have him play short, and move Eckstein to 2nd.

5218  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / GTA: SA - What Rockstar Doesn't Want You To Know on: October 21, 2004, 07:26:22 PM
Woo, that map is HUGE.  I just hope the load times are better than they were for Vice City when you went from one part of the map to the other.

5219  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / 9.0 on the Steinbrenner Scale on: October 21, 2004, 07:21:57 PM
Nomar's either going to Anaheim or back to Chicago.  Not a chance he'll be a Yankee next season.

5220  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Xbox--SW: Battlefront, Crimson Skies and Riddick FS/FT on: October 21, 2004, 05:41:56 PM
I'm confused a bit by the labeling on your post.  Does that indicate that Riddick and CS are sold, and SW is not sold yet?  Or are SW and CS sold and Riddick available?

If anyone could give up the lead, it's Boston in Game 7 vs. New York.

Calm down, dude.  With the pace this game has, you'll give yourself a heart attack.

5227  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Netflix - did they cut their price? on: October 20, 2004, 05:42:32 PM
Yes, Netflix is dropping to $17.99 for 3-out at a time.  Effective November 1 for current subscribers.

I'll at least rent this and hope the gameplay is better than before.  But, so long as I can powerbomb everyone with Chris Benoit, I'll be happy.

How would a usually non-RPG gamer like this?  Thinking about possibly getting it, but I'm not a big fan of RPGs (only played through the original Dragon Warrior on NES and FFX).

I'm in at some point.  But, there are too many other damn good games coming out, when will I have the time or money to play?  Guess this will go in the Christmas wish queue.

Here's a tip that helps.

"May Kwoh Ren" means American in Mandarin. If they start flinging that around, it's a good chance they're talking about you. "How Pee-yow Liang" means handsome, you're in good shape if they use this.

And what if they speak Cantonese?  slywink
5233  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / nip/tuck (thoughts from a new viewer) on: October 19, 2004, 04:08:23 PM
The main reasons why I find Nip/Tuck to be so good:

1) The acting.  Always fantastic.  The chemistry has been there between the actors from day 1.
2) The writing.  Yes, I know some of the plots are out there, but the interaction between the characters would be nothing without the writing.  Plus, these characters have depth, even if you find them unlikeable.
3) The music.  From the score to the song choices, it's always great.  Hell, who thought Art Garfunkel, solo, could be used to such great effect (season 2 finale)?

Can't wait for season 3.

Vick will never be an elite NFL QB because he can't stay healthy.  He's too frail.  He also has no concept of what touch is.  He's been this way since college (I should know, I went to the same school).

Blah.  After going to the Peking Inn in Northern Va (this is a REALLY popular Chinese place...many visiting diplomats and politicians go there), nowhere else really compares.  Especially after 3 people in a table of 4 put away 2 peking ducks and then even more food.  We rang up quite the bill.  smile

Not everyone can get DirecTV, Devil. I've read somewhere that only 10% (!!!) of the US has the proper view of the southern sky that would enable them to have a DirecTV dish. And, as long as the NFL maintains its contract with them, no NFL PPV for cable or other satellite providers.

Move.  :wink:

No!  I will take the 5 minute walk to work over DirecTV access, dammit!
