5241  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.

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

Direct TV.

I would assume a PPV game would cost you about $10 which would be just about the whole season of the NFL Sunday Ticket.

My bad.  I missed the second page of your posts.  But still, the VAST majority of your posts were about R&P, and you didn't complain about it when you were posting in about the football league.  My point still stands.  Get over it.

jblank, whatever.  You registered your handle on this site before GG went down, but you never posted.  As a result, you never made any posts bemoaning the fact that R&P was not allowed here.  The first post you made on this board was after GG died, and it was about R&P.  In fact, all of your posts have been about adding an R&P forum here.  This place will NEVER be GG.  Get over it.  I thought you were leaving, anyway.

I'm a big fan of my Xbox and PS2 (while my Gamecube is very dusty and sorta sucky.) Lord knows, I love console games. But this decision makes me feel like console gaming is still the domain of kids, not adults.


Ouch.  That's quite the inaccurate (and maybe even inappropriate) generalization you've made.

Unless it's outrageously priced, that's what I'll be getting.


How about $299? Cuz that's how much the PSP will cost you.

$149.99 for the DS if anyone's wondering.


Actually, I believe the PSP will retail for $350 in the US.


$350?  Damn.  One more reason NOT to get a PSP.

Guess that's decided. I don't like the decision and now I'm worried about the comunity drifting off in different directions. It's not the R&P forum I want so much as the respect and faith in the coimmunity to discuss whatever they want in a civl manner.


Things at R&P on GG were never always civil.


Neither were things in EBG. Or in PC Games by Title (Derek Smart, anyone?). That doesn't necessarily mean that, as a whole, those forums were contentious.


But R&P, by nature, is a far more divisive subject, thereby leading to larger headaches when things explode.

Remember, this is Console Gold, NOT Gone Gold.  It should remain that way.  Also, remember that this is an INTERNET FORUM.  Nothing more, nothing less.  As others have said, this forum ran fine before the demise of GG, and will run fine afterwards.  I'm here to stay.  If you don't like the fact that there will be no R&P forum, well, that's your loss.

Remember, Off-Topic, here, was always R&P free.  Why should Ron have to change what already was a good thing just because another site died?

Hey Eco!  When can you play our game?


Hey pr0ner!  There is a chance I could play tonight at 10:00 EST.  However, I have to take care of an important family matter today at 4:00 and there is a possibility of that lasting a lot longer than I thought.  Keep me in your thoughts today as it has to do with my mother and I'm really scared about the outcome.  


Actually pr0ner, forget tonight, I probably won't have the time or feel like it after today.  Tomorrow night around 10:00 EST would work though.  Let me know if you're good with that.


Hey Eco.  Can't play tonight.  I've got a real life inline hockey game to play at 10.  Probably can play tomorrow evening, though.  When would work for you?

You know what really amuses me?  When Ron and the other CG staff broke away from the original GG, they posted things on the GG forums about the site.  I don't remember any exact threads, but it appears they were RESOUNDINGLY run off the boards, in a "you broke away, and we don't want you and your PR posts here" manner.  Now that GG is dead, everyone is coming to CG and expecting things to be EXACTLY as they were.  I think, in light of what happened in the past, that what Ron and everyone else has done is more than enough.  This site should not be exactly like GG.  GG is dead.  It's time to move on.  And adding an R&P forum, and the headaches that WILL go along with it, is not moving on.

Expect a post on the R&P decision by COB today.


I think things are perfect the way they are.  Adding PC game forums was a logical extension of what was going on, because you were already doing PC-PR posts in the Console Games forum.  However, all along there was no R&P forum at this site, and there never seemed to be a need for one with the people who were here before GG closed.  I've only seen one person say "I'm leaving" if there's no R&P, and the majority of the sentiment I've seen also says "no" to R&P.  Why change a good thing, especially when it means more work for the people modding the board?
