I just noticed you both posted at the exact same time.  I thought wbs was still confused.

Dude, I'm always confused. Don't you know that by now?

Personally, I doubt winter very much unless Obsidian was so far ahead of schedule it's ridiculous. That's my $.02 though so take that for what you will.

Where did you get it for $20?  

I'm going to go to CC at lunch today and see if I can buy 4 of their $5 games, and trade them in at EB for Spiderman.

Right now, this game is standing tall as my GOTY. But there's still many miles to go, so we'll see where it ends up in December. smile

Thumbs up from me on this one just in terms of sheer size. For the $20 I got it for, this one has been a solid title. I actually got to play a good chunk of it for a long while this weekend and I can say in spite of the glitches, hiccups, and AI-randomly-going-stupid moments, I've found so much to do and collect it's been great. Not to mention web-slinging all over the place just never gets old. I blew through Times Square the other day and heard, "Lookin' good!" and I just thought, "Sweeeet." biggrin

When I saved last I was riding on top of the El. I've stopped before I go to Dr. Octavias' apartment so it's early yet, but I've gone around stopping crimes and collecting tokens. And letting people drown. Those "save the boat" missions just suck.

Engagement photos that keep getting postponed due to the weather here sucking wind. Bill's description of Lone Star Weather on the front page of GG was spot-on. We keep trying, it keeps raining, and so forth. My Lady's birthday is actually July 4, so it will be all-birthday all-weekend, along with wedding stuff too.

6773  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So Firefly's not doing anything for me... on: June 30, 2004, 03:48:34 PM
Quote from: "Graham"
I would be tempted but buy the Farscape DVD's if they came in a season set.  I'm not one of those that likes to buy individual discs.  Maybe I'll eventually rent one.

That's why I borrowed the discs from a friend instead of paying for it. smile I've got two more episodes left and now I'm starting to really enjoy it. The show, for me, didn't start clicking until they heisted the hospital in "Ariel," but again the Blue Hand Group proved to be really stupid malevolent villains. Oh well. The other big heist episode, the unaired one with Saffron, was a side-splitter. Having River and Simon find out and confront Jayne was also good, as was River's "I can kill you with my brain" and the look on Jayne's face afterwards. Good stuff. It's funny though that the unaired episodes have been some of the best. Just finished "War Stories" last night and that was fantastic. I can definitely see the potential for the show and where it could have gone, but again, FOX strikes again.

The gag real wasn't that funny, though the first bit with Nathan Fillion and the camera was a gut buster.
6774  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So Firefly's not doing anything for me... on: June 28, 2004, 06:40:55 PM
I think DS9 was a hell of a lot better than Firefly, but it was building on a universe that was 30 years in the making. Firefly has proven to be funnier than DS9 was though (excepting "Little Green Men"). Overall though it's just not blowing me away. Here's yet another case of the GGFE leading another lamb to the slaughter. smile Although, I just started up the one with the Capt. reminiscing about how he hooked up the crew while he's bleeding to death and going down with the ship, and thus far it's stellar. Maybe it picks up from here... we shall see. smile

Your son will absolutely love Voodoo Vince, though it may be too difficult for him. That's some high-quality humor there, and it's right about the type he may get a kick out of watching. Plus the game is just dang fun.
6776  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So Firefly's not doing anything for me... on: June 28, 2004, 02:05:59 PM
All along on the forums across the internet, all I heard was how great Firefly was and evil FOX was for showing it out of order and killing it early. While I agree with FOX's blatant stupidity, the show never clicked for me. So everyone on the internet (and especially GG) told me to watch it in order. I'm doing so now.

The show still blows, guys. smile

There are moments of brilliantly funny parts, 9/10's of which are Adam Baldwin's Jayne, and the other 1/10 being the scattered one-liners. Kaylee is damn cute, Inara is gorgeous, the Blue Hand Group is one of the dumbest ideas for malevolent villains, like, ever, and the Alliance capital ships are... what? Floating cities? That can sneak up on the crew of a small craft like Serenity... how? It's not like there are hills to hide behind. Oh no, the crew says "We got incoming!" They race to the bridge and there's an Alliance ship. Huh?

Also, the whole Old West in Space angle ain't what I'd call "well-done." More like Sunny Side Up. They all have a real cheery approach to the universe at hand, but when you look closely at it and poke at it, it gets all runny and slippery. Just my thoughts. I'll finish the show, but I ain't seein' what all the fuss was about.

Never underestimate the capacity for human stupidity. If people are given fair warning and still screw up, it's no one's fault but their's. Sorta like whenever I (frequently) speed. So it's says 20mph and there are kids crossing and such. I have the game on at home, dammit! I should be there NOW!!! biggrin

6783  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Preview Discussion: Spider-Man 2 on: June 23, 2004, 01:42:50 AM
How about flying through really tight spaces? My favorite shot from the previews is that first split second shot of Spider-Man flying between the cab and the trailer of a big rig while chasing some villains. That one shot guarantees I'll be in the theater next week. biggrin

Another big thing I want to do is slingshot around buildings. How does the manual (i.e. two webslingers) handle versus just the one webslinger with automatic?

I'm absolutely dying to play this game. I've culled several crap games from my library and may just take those into EBX on my lunch break next week to pick it up. smile I got to play it E3 of last year, and I was one of the ones that leaped off the top of the Empire's antennae and swung away at the last second. Considering how long it took to actually get near the ground, I damn near went into shock. The game looks like it will just plain rule the earth, and I can't wait. biggrin

6788  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN reports XBox 2 to debut Nov. 2005 on: June 16, 2004, 06:17:56 PM
And I'd agree on that, but at the end of the day the games are what will ultimately sell the machine and, more importantly, keep selling the machines. Microsoft could have a dual 3GHz set w/ a 512MB ATI graphics card and all the storage space you could dream of, but if the best they could offer would be the most realistic variant of Pokemon on the market, they aren't going to sell many consoles past the early adopters and hardware-fiends. smile
6789  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Xbox] Fable coming soon, quotes from preview on: June 16, 2004, 06:14:54 PM
I'm waiting for Jade Empire for my RPG fix, however the thought of being a drunken, leacherous war-monger has a certain appeal to it. biggrin I remember playing my roommate's copy of B&W and after about an hour asking, "Is this all there is?" A couple of boards later, I'd answered my question with an affirmative. I'll wait for the reviews and the boards too. smile
6790  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN reports XBox 2 to debut Nov. 2005 on: June 16, 2004, 06:07:45 PM
Quote from: "farley2k"
It does give them quite a leap on the other next generation systems.  

I wonder if it would be a good idea though since that would virtually guarantee that Sony could put out a more powerful machine.  One of the big selling points of the Xbox is that it is the most powerful console...without that jewel in their crown will customers flock to it?

Ask Sony. People are still buying PS2's and it's nowhere close to the XBox in terms of horsepower under the hood. The games are always the thing, and there are never any good ones until the console's been out a year, IMO.
6791  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / IGN reports XBox 2 to debut Nov. 2005 on: June 16, 2004, 06:02:14 PM
Were Microsoft to announce it today as "final" that XB2 would hit in Nov. 2005, you just know that Sony would drop a brick in their pants. smile This should be interesting, but my humble $.02 says that everything is going to hit at the same time in 2006. But that's my opinion on things, versus what may wind up actually happening. I know that it's killing Microsoft to be #2, it has from the very beginning. But I really have trouble with them shortening the life expectancy of the consoles just to get a chance at the number 1 slot. That pisses me off royally.
6792  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Aliens vs Predator Movie on: June 15, 2004, 03:14:41 PM
Visually, it looks perfect. The shot of the Aliens climbing over the pyramid and the three Predators standing atop it just dropped my jaw. Then I recalled the flick was directed by Paul "Will Suck" Anderson and is set in Antarctica. Thus my enthusiasm is killed again. smile
6793  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Chronicles of Riddick Movie on: June 13, 2004, 09:01:39 PM
Overall, I enjoyed it but once they get to the prison planet Crematoria all sense of pacing just goes right out the window. There are so many individual moments where the movie just has the perfect amount of badassery that I loved it. I'd say the entire Necromonger storyline was just stupid as all hell, with this "'til Underverse come" malarky not even believed by the actors saying the lines. The only times I really felt what I was seeing was even remotely believable was any time Riddick was on screen doing his bad ass thing.


The opening w/ the mercs

"I'm not with these people. I just want a piece of him."

"I'd have gone a different way."

Riddick's conversation w/ Tombs and the mercs

The entire Crematoria sequence which was truly cool, but felt like it belonged in a different movie.

"Who's ship is this?"

The dogs, which were one of the coolest ideas of an evolved species I've seen in a while

"Split four ways!"

The better effects used for Riddick's eyes

Kayla stretched out on the rocks above Riddick, which is a shot not to be missed. biggrin

The ending being fairly cool, yet really predictable if you've been listening to really anything the Necros have said through the entirety of the movie. Do not believe anyone that says the ending surprised them- they are dumb. biggrin

What I really hated was Thandi Newton somehow managing the impressive feat of overacting and underacting at the same time. She hurts the audience whenever she's on screen, which is, sadly, a lot. Hopefully, Riddick will toss her out an airlock w/n the first minute of the sequel. biggrin

Overall, I'd give it a B-. It's got enough cool ideas to warrant a full-blown series, but they need to create a more interesting story for Riddick next time. He and Tombs are hand-down the coolest characters in the movie, and a cat and mouse chase flick between them and a bunch of other scummy mercs would get my butt in the theater opening night.

Good night nurse, in two months of balls to the wall non-stop action and excitement at my new job, I realized just now that I've completed as much as I can in my job. I've now gotten everything completed that was hanging, everything is up to speed, I've got to document a few procedures and am waiting on a quote to finish a proposal, but otherwise I've actually completed everything. I sit here now bored out of my gourd. It's been a while since that happened actually... and I think I may start twitching...
