2761  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / real simple: How do I play Half-life 2 w/o steam??? on: November 17, 2004, 04:43:52 PM
Quote from: "Sepiche"
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.

s


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

This is my game of the year, hands down, no question.  I don't remember the last time I got this giddy over a game.  Every little thing in it is just AWESOME.

2771  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The Incredibles is... well incredible! Duh! on: November 06, 2004, 11:06:30 PM
My 6 yr old declared it his favorite movie today.  I asked him to rate it on a scale of 1 to 10 and without hesitation he declared it to be a one hundred!

Mind you, this morning he also refused to go outside and play because they were showing Godzilla vs Space Godzilla on Encore....

My wife claims I am brainwashing him, but I am convinced it's genetic  :twisted:

I have a review of X-Men Legends for the GC that I'm finishing up now.  I thought it was pretty good but the control scheme was a bit frustrating.  Look for the review in the coming days.

Foolish mortals!  You would have been better off playing with Linux.  It would have been cheaper and there is all the open source software out there.   :twisted:


What, and be forced to use Gimp?  I think not!

Linux is about as far on the other end of the spectrum of user-friendliness as it gets puke

ok, you guys are gonna think I'm crazy, but see, they've been airing the series 7 episodes at a time  in order from the beginning since the first of the month, and I just got this nifty DVR from my cable company.  I've been recording them on my dvr, and then transfering the episodes to dvd through a dvd recorder I borrowed from work.  been getting about 5-6 episodes per disc, admittedly at a lower quality (slightly above VHS), but I have the whole series now!

Those MicroMan figures look very similar to the MICRONAUT's of the late 1970's.

I know there was a GG'er who was a big collector of Micronaut toys...he has a website with the pic's...pretty cool old school toys.


That would be me. And yes I have those figures above as well. They even have a MicroMan scalled batman which is cool.

Here is pics of my collection from about 4 years ago.

Damn.  that's sweet!  I'll have to show your site to Griffin when I get home today, he loves the old-school stuff.

I was looking for a good SpongeBob poster, which they were out of, and found that.  it was a no-brainer.

In Japan they were called MicroMen originally.  I used to have Biotron but that's it- they were insanely hard to find and my parents just didn't get it.

You know what's really cool?  Takara has a Godzilla line of Micromen coming out in December.  Not exactly sure how they're going to work that, but you better believe I'm going to be anxiously awaiting pics.
2790  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / My son is 6 today! here's what we got him.... on: October 14, 2004, 06:13:27 PM
Man, this doesn't even scratch the surface of what he's going to have by saturday.  My wife's family not only likes to give a lot of gifts, they like to give you exactly what you want.

I always pick out the odd/ hard to find/ imported japanese stuff that he digs and no other kid in the world has even heard of (hence the microman figures- which he actually asked for btw)  He's just lucky he's got a game/toy geek dad who- doesn't buy for himself yet lives vicariously through him. Heck, we actually spent LESS on him this year than the last few.  He doesn't actually get too much throughout the year either- the occasional action figure or movie, but we usually save it up for the b-day and xmas.

We are throwing a party for him saturday as well.  the SpongeBob Moonwalk will be arriving by mid-morning....
2791  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / My son is 6 today! here's what we got him.... on: October 14, 2004, 06:02:55 PM
Man, I wish I had me as a dad when I was a kid- I NEVER got stuff this cool:



Shockblast Transformer


Microman MasterForce (yes, all 4 of them)


first Spiderwick Chronicles book


a dragon poster


duh.

and finally, tomorrow night after I get paid, we are going to a local comic shop and let him pick out something (he wants some Godzilla toys)

She also kicked my son's ass at Godzilla:Destroy all monsters melee on the GC the other week, and I mean just decimated him. :shock:

By the time we do, chances are the PC reviews will be integrated into the rest of the site.

2796  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Any other Godzilla fans here? on: October 13, 2004, 08:39:52 PM
btw, have you heard of Godzilla: Final Wars?  It's like a modern Destroy All Monsters.  Something like 25 monsters are supposed to appear in it.  Godzilla even takes down the American Godzilla.  I can only imagine how satisfying watching that will be....
2797  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Any other Godzilla fans here? on: October 13, 2004, 08:37:58 PM
YESS!!!! Godzilla, Gamera, you name it.

My son is too!  (I swear, this is the last time I post this)



He has requested Godzilla on his birthday cake this year
