Yeah, I'm anxious to hear this too- what changes?

Oh, and I have 50 gmail invites if anyone wants one....

2724  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / DVD Tuesday - 2/15/05 on: February 15, 2005, 04:12:39 PM
If you like mindfuck style movies then go with Donnie Darko.  I loved it, and have been eagerly awaiting the director's cut for some time.  The soundtrack is awesome as well (same guy did the soundtrack for Wonderfalls, btw)

It's one of those movies that my wife and I actually watched 2 or 3 times back to back and discussed at long length for days afterward.

I used to use thunderbird, but then I got gmail.  best spam filters I've seen yet, and the service just keeps on getting better.  threaded emails rock!

2727  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Whow this forum is almost dead on: February 14, 2005, 03:28:25 AM
I guess what I was getting at was, I, personally, was tired of the 'hoppin' forum but nearly dead main site that Gone Gold had become.  I loved it when both aspects of the site were alive and kicking, when content was updated almost DAILY.  I did the forum only thing during that decline, hoping that one day, there would be another Roll Call, or game review, or weekly value....  Coming here was a welcome change for me.

Forgive me for attempting to marginalize this forum, I misspoke.  I think that the best representation of this site relies on both reader interaction as well as original site content equally.  I guess I'm just a little more partial to front end of things 'cause that's what I spend the most time on.  biggrin
2728  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What happened to 94.9 Zeta??! on: February 14, 2005, 01:04:37 AM
same thing happened here in Houston.  same damn name even.

Not that I cared TOO much for the station it replaced (radio is currently a wasteland of mediocrity), but I liked it a lot better than the one that supplanted it.

Quote from: "gameoverman"

Plus, you might want to have a sticky at the top of each forum with a brief snippet of relevant(ie PC news in the Pc gaming forum, General news in off topic, etc) news for the day, and links to the pages with full coverage of that news.  

That way people in the forums can keep up to date without actually leaving the forums, unless there is news that they want to leave for.  


See, for all of us hard working staff members, the main site actually comes before the forums in importance, and we strive to make it the same way for our readers.  Putting the top news in a forum thread not only would give us more work, but totally defeats the purpose.  

Don't get me wrong, i love having a good forum to post in, but these forums are just a small fraction of what's going on with this site. Mind you, we do have plans for more compelling and original front page content to complement our in-depth game reviews, but the forum is definitely a small part of a much bigger picture.
2730  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cell Phones - Need recomendations on Service and Phone on: February 11, 2005, 02:22:59 AM
hate HATE HATE  T-Mobile.  They got into the habit of shutting my phone off before I ever got a bill in the mail- basing the shut-off ion the bill I was going to get a few days later.  drove me fucking batshit crazy.

I switched to at&t, which I liked, but they got bought by cingular, and I had to make the switch-off a few days ago.  so far, I like the fact that the added cingular coverage in the merged network actually includes my house (unlike at&t's spotty coverage only here) and the fact that I got a spiffy new phone out of it.  So far so good.

2734  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Electronic Entertainment Expo - Who is going? on: January 21, 2005, 07:47:51 PM
I'm real excited about this one!  This is my first time to go since I worked for TimeGate and this'll be better since it's with the site.

Plus I'll finally get to meet some of these jokers I work with here face to face Tongue

While I don't refute that it's a word in german, the english language consists of words that have their roots in other languages, MANY other languages.

Regardless, the description fits  :p

And, oddly enough, Alba looks orders of magnitude hotter in Sin City.


See, her role in Sin City is perfect casting- she can certainly come off as a hot slut.  Sue Storm is not a hot slut, she's a girl-next-door type.
2737  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Please sign this Metallica Petition on: January 19, 2005, 10:05:47 PM
Really the best thing anyone can do is write off this once great band.  They have been putting out dreck for well over 10 yrs now, and to say it's their producer's fault is just wishfull thinking.

My theory is they stopped using drugs.  That's usually a good indication of impending suckiness.  sad but true, at least in most cases.
2738  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Fantastic Four Trailer on: January 19, 2005, 02:03:38 AM
Well, I thought it looked HORRIBLE.  They royally screwed up Dr. Doom- now he looks all 'Electro-Klytus'.

Seriously.  I kept on thinking of that last scene in The Hulk.  You know, the one that plunged a mediocre-to-bad movie into the eternal depths of suckitude.

sigh.  well, there's always the unreleased Roger Corman version....
2739  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Don't forget! 24 starts tonight! on: January 12, 2005, 09:24:09 PM
Maybe I'm just sick of the formula.  I really like the first season, with the exception of the amnesia scenes and excessive Kim subplots, and season two started off good, but they shoulda just nuked LA when they had the chance- would have been a great twist. I grew weary of it after that, and season 3 just looked meh.

It just seems to me that they are trying waaaay to hard this time around.  My wife and I took turns predicting what was going to happen next, and we generally got each one right.  Nothing shocked us other than the how bad it was.  And the computer stuff?  Puh-lease!  Take down the internet?  positioning code for a major attack, as if it were a game of risk? wtf?!?!?  The Jack Bauer character is basically McClane from the Die Hard series now, another character who devolved into self parody.  

I actually have a tiny bit more faith that Alias will be good this season, but the premiere of that was pretty weak too.
2740  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Don't forget! 24 starts tonight! on: January 11, 2005, 06:07:12 AM
Ok, that just SUCKED.  24 has become a parody of itself.  I want my 4 hrs back...
2741  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is a Flash iPod on the horizon? on: January 10, 2005, 08:59:56 PM
Actually, in my experience, you are paying for quality, not brand.  Apple uses extremely high quality components.  Look inside a G5 sometime, it's AMAZING.
2742  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Godzilla:StE Early Sightings/Impressions? on: January 10, 2005, 05:01:27 PM
My son and I just got this on the weekend, and I gotta say, what the hell is up with all of the negative reviews?!?!?!  This game is awesome!  We had a blast playing it all weekend long, and we just unlocked all of the monsters- gonna dig into live over the next few days.

I noticed that all of the sites that have reader ratings consistently ranking in the 80s, while review sites have pretty much panned it.  All of them seem to hate the 'sluggishness' of the fights- do they realize that we are dealing with giant  monsters here?  

As soon as I get through my current load of reviews, expect one of this, hopefully by next week.
2743  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Is a Flash iPod on the horizon? on: January 07, 2005, 09:26:35 PM
I think this one's bogus

iWork, 'Headless' Mac, and updates to iLife I'm betting on for sure, but I doubt that they would dilute the iPod line like that.  I would rather see the mini get a larger capacity model and the current one go down in price.

I hope the wachowski brothers get it up the butt good and proper for putting me through Matrix 2 & 3.  My wife and I were both wondering if the second and third movies were even written by the same guys, and now I guess we know.

I still can't believe the idiotic 'ultimate' matrix set got made.  Commentary by philosophers?  gimme a fucking break.....

Say, I don't suppose we could at least keep profanity out of the thread titles, can we?  I mean, 'F---K You' would be just as effective.
2754  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Another post-partum tragedy on: November 23, 2004, 05:34:28 PM
I'm sorry, but to just dismiss this as post partum depression is ridiculous.  I'm not saying that she didn't have it, but she obviously had other more serious mental problems.  Post Partum may have catalyzed it, but it doesn't explain away insanity of that level.

And might I add that this is REALLY fucked up.  I can't get it out of my head, it's really disturbing me
2755  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Cobalt/ RawOre Prototype Theme has been nuked on: November 23, 2004, 05:04:28 AM
Sorry to any of those who were using it.  I was installing the new ad code on all of the themes and that one got hosed beyond my abilities to repair.  To be honest it never liked to play nice with me.

Sometime in the near future I will work up another theme for the forums, I just don't have time now.

The box and manual are rather worthless, so I can't really sell it.  I guess I will just throw it in the garbage and chalk this one up to a hard lesson learned.


Ummm, now I bought it through steam so i don't know this firsthand, but I read somewhere that the retail version of the game didn't actually come with a manual....

I really can't understand all the problems people are having with Steam now.  I've had it for a few months now, never had a problem with it, and I truly think it's the future of PC gaming.

Before H2 was released I had the whole game on my system, and at two in the morning while sitting at my desk I was able to start playing it.  That's just badass.

My sentiments exactly.  Tycho at PA pretty much nails my opinion as well.
