Quote from: "The General"
Am i the only one who still buys VHS tapes , instead of DVD's?

Mostly because of the price on DVD's. I can get the whole die hard collection on VHS as a pack at the mall for 12.99, but on DVD its 22 bucks. The extra's too me , is a waste of time. The extra's on rush hour 2 was good, but too short and they showed the same thing in the movies.

I have a couple DVD's like Smallville 1 , 2 and i plan on picking up 3 & 4. But most of the time i just pick up VHS tapes.


Coming soon- The General's monumental plan to revive the VHS, betamax and 8-track tape formats.

Sorry, cheap shot. unibrow

Seriously, picture quality, requiring less shelf space, and the ability to go to anywhere on the disc at a whim (not to mention not having to rewind)  killed VHS for me.  I haven't even looked back.

No I wouldn't.  I don't own a dreamcast. and don't plan to.  You would have much better luck with PC- try online distribution and you can cut a LOT of overhead and not worry about shelf space.
2607  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Ways to end Piracy on: August 16, 2005, 05:50:18 PM
The only way you could possibly make this work is if you came out with a portable Dreamcast.  Not. Going. To. Happen.

Seriously, the fanboy-ism is cute, but don't think for a minute that you are going to make any kind of money off of a system that is no longer supported or even relevant.
2608  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Tipping? on: August 15, 2005, 06:08:31 PM
If you get bad service, my rule of thumb is to not  leave nothing, but leave a very small tip, otherwise the waiter thinks you just forgot.

After having been a waiter for many years I reward good service with 20%+, but  I ABHOR bad service, and want to make sure the server KNOWS I thought it was deplorable.

2611  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / @#$%%$# It's on STEAM!!?!? on: August 13, 2005, 09:54:47 PM
I like steam.  I see online distribution as the only way PC gaming is going to survive soon, and Steam is the best effort to date.  Sure, it isn't perfect, but it's better than starforce, lack of availability, etc.

I would be shocked if the 360 version looks better, and runs better, than the PC version.  I guess we'll see.  I realize the comparison is not apples to apples, but that sure as hell didnt happen with Morrowind.

olaf


Yeah, that's because it was the xbox, not the 360.

when the 360 comes out, it will hang right in there with the top of the line PCs for a while, and it'll be significantly cheaper.....

The list above looks much more appealing... I'm probably going to go put a preorder down this weekend, just in case my new M$ benefits either a) don't kick in by launch, or b) don't cover the XBox 360.  I'm hoping they do though biggrin

You work for Microsoft?  I had an interview with them a while back but they hired for the position internally.  I was bummed.  I would've loved to work on xbox.com....

2616  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Can you outgrow nightmares? on: August 08, 2005, 06:28:31 PM
I'm sorry, but WTF is up with that sig, General?  Is that a quote from a song or from you to the forum?

But, on topic, I have lucid dreaming most of the time.  Every once in a while I have an 'uncomfortable' dream, but I rarely have what I would consider a nightmare.  My wife has nightmares regularly and I think it's because she has anxiety issues.

You are missing the point.  It's not that they included it at all, it's that they included it and didn't alert the ESRB about it in their ratings review.  Rockstar had to know this would blow up in some way, stirring up controversy, generating tons of free press, selling more games.
2626  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Hot Coffee Opinion Piece on: July 14, 2005, 07:33:25 PM
I'm inclined to think that Rockstar should shoulder the blame on this.  Controversy= $$$$$ and they, more than any other game company know this.  I seriously wouldn't be surprised if they leaked info or the means to unlock it themselves.  It pisses me off because now we might see some really stupid oppresive shit handed down as a result.

Meh?  The rave sequence in Revolutions was key to the story.  The one in Reloaded might be the one you were thinking of.


Oops.  That's right, Revolutions was the one I fell asleep during.  Tongue

Happy B-day Ron & Loren!  I wouldv'e popped in sooner but I've been spending the last thrre days of my four day 'vacation'  enjoying the lingering effects of the sinus infection I was so lucky to get after the cold that my loving children decided to bestow on me two weeks ago.  Today it gifted me with an ear infection (yaaay!) and I'm about to celebrate by putting my head through the flimsy sheetrock of my wall.

But hey, at least I saw the kickass new Batman movie yesterday with a buddy of mine, so it wasn't all bad.

Don't let my meandering grouchitude give you pause, though, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!
2638  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is WW3 inevitable? on: July 03, 2005, 02:50:23 AM
The sky is falling!  The sky is falling!

So, now the US is gonna start WW3?  Seriously, things were a LOT scarier back when we thought it was going to break out between us and USSR.  Bush overseeing the invasion of Iraq is not "Negotations are a no go, you either do what he wants or you get bombed, invaded, and occupied".  and this:  "If we didn't have a warmongering president, China would pose no threat at all to us." is a patently ludicrous statement as they have posed a threat to us for longer than I have been alive.

Don't believe the hype.  Bush is not Hitler, North Korea is run by AN INSANE PERSON that would be acting like a freak even if Mickey Mouse was in office, and whatever goes on in the middle east affects every country in this world thanks to our dependency on oil and it's byproducts.

And please don't take any of this as a pro-Bush diatribe- I think he's a subpar president, just like every president we've had for the last several decades.  We haven't had a real man of quality in that office in years.  Both republicans and democrats are more concerned with extending their power (for the most part) than actually doing the right thing.  The two-party system is killing this nation more than anything, IMHO.  We at least need more voices in the house and senate, and I don't mean just one or two.

Oh, never mind.  I don't even know why I responded to this thread, it's not like I'm going to convince anybody to stop buying into the bullshit of one side or another.  /rant off.
