My brain actually hurts after listening to how inept the people are at this billing center.
This guy could file a class action lawsuit for over billing just based on this conversation.

IIRC the guy posted it to his blog, just as he threatened, and he was eventually contacted by someone with a brain and he got his money back.

Vista is going to be HUGE for gaming, simply because it brings the first update in over a decade to Solitaire, which has got to be the most widely played computer game ever.  (Not to mention Minesweeper, Hearts, and Freecell!)

My main observation was it costs exactly the same as the PS3.

I thought this made for an interesting comparison as well, especially since (because the iPhone is subsidized by a 2-year contract) both of these leading edge pieces of technology likely cost more than $500/$600 to manufacture.

I'm not sure which one I would buy if I could have one or the other, probably the PS3?  It's a moot point, though, as there's no way I'd pay $500/$600 for a game system or a Minority Reportesque phone.

The videos of the iPhone in action on the official website are pretty sexy, however.

The Decepticons only came to Earth because they wanted a part in wherever the Autobots were headed from Cybertron.  They crashed on Earth by accident, and even then the Decepticons didn't want to rule earth--they just wanted to harvest all of our abundant energy and get back to Cybertron with it.

What if they made it so you can play Diablo I/II style multiplayer for free, but for $10/month you can gain access to a MMO style town where you can have a house, trade with players, have a guild hall and form parties to quest with.  Would that approach sit better with people, or still not enough?

I'd pay monthly money for that, but something tells me that the devs won't do this. I'm guessing basic multiplayer with a few other little things tacked on. Nothing worth my money, and it's a real deterrent to me buying the game in the first place.

I don't expect anything like this to be implemented for Hellgate, but I do think that Blizzard will do something along these lines with Diablo 3, and people won't raise as much of a stink (or they will and then subscribe anyways) because it will look new, polished, and awesome.

People are willing to pay ridiculous monthly fees, but not if you're making them feel like they're only paying for things that used to be free.

Yes I did just say that.  Jack Bauer sucks cock and the show 24 is utter crap.

Everyone it entitled to their opinion however phrasing your opinion like this makes it seem like you are just trolling.  Please stop. 

What did I offend you somehow by insulting 24?  People praise the show like it is the second coming of Christ.  I can't stand it.  The first season was decent but it went downhill really fast after that.

Just a suggestion, but when someone says, "I like these shows!" how about instead of, "the shows you like suck ass, Jack Bauer sucks cock," you could try, "I don't get the fascination with 24, the show's highly overrated."

I originally stated pretty much that, then got the eyes of shock and awe from Hetz because I dare not like 24.

You also got a "no trolling" request from the site administrator which you followed up with "Jack sucks cock!"

Is it that hard to show a little restraint when it's obvious Ron is trying everything he can to eliminate the forum drama that's been going on recently?

Ignoring wouldn't have fixed the -LE- problem.  If anything, it would have made it worse.  -LE-, in all liklihood, would have worn that "ignored by" profile as a badge of honor. 

And therein lies my biggest fear - if we ignore the problem it won't solve it.  If someone is an actual nuisance to the community, would it be better for us to simply let people use the ignore function to stop the problem, or does addressing it with better rule systems seem a more responsible method?

Talking seriously here now, IMO looking at the ignore feature as a 'solution' is going about it the wrong way.  It's simply a tool some people can use.

If it's not a solution to anything, why have it?  If the ignore button wouldn't have helped the PS3 fights that led to the button's implementation, why are we implementing it?

Everything I have seen from him here leads me to believe that the guy is fine, in fact, he's been pretty helpful to several people, at least from I have seen.

Six people at this forum happen to work at Sam's Club, and well, there's only so much they can take.

Quote from: warning
And I agree about Advance Wars and Fire Emblem having a very puzzleish nature.  That's my main gripe with both.

I also completely agree, and it's what ultimately killed my interest in both games.

I can see how some of the campaign missions in AW could seem puzzley.  Personally I had the most fun and spent the most time just playing open-ended skirmishes vs. the AI.  I'm not referring to the pre-fab scenarios, but just plain old battles.

The game takes on a whole 'nother level of depth and strategy when you play the biggest multiplayer maps.  Supply lines become more important, greater distance emphasizes strategic placement of troops.  Air superiority really means something, things like that.

You might want to monitor Quarter to Three's Wii sighting thread, although they've started to get a little sidetracked.

Most recently from that thread there seems to be a shitty Gamestop bundle (forced extended warranty, no 2nd controller) that will ship on 1/17.

I'm also keeping an eye on Penny Arcade's sighting thread, but they're reporting that Gamestops are selling out within 10 minutes of a shipment arriving.

Quite honestly I'm not sure why Nintendo can't get more of these things out there.  I can't immagine that there are supply issues with any of the components.  It's not exactly cutting edge technology.  Plus it's not like they are losing money on each console sold, so they should be very motivated to get as many on the shelves as possible. 

3.2 million units sold in the first month and a half of launch doesn't seem too shabby to me.  Maybe if they upped their production capability much more they'd be left with a bunch of unused factories when the initial demand dies off in a few months?

I am surprised, though, at how hard it seems to be for them to keep the remotes'n'chucks in stock.  They really can't keep up spitting out 2-4 remotes for every Wii that comes off the assembwii line?

Adieu!

I'm pretty sure that hitting any ending, including the worst one that you just got, is enough to unlock Julius mode.  You might want to give it a try before you sell, it lets you play as Julius, that girl, and Dracula's son.

I was wrong, should have recalled the story:

Spoiler for Hiden:
You unlock Julius Mode by getting the ending where Soma succumbs to Dracula's spirt.  That's not from beating Dario, it's the ending after that one.

I believe any ending should allow access to New Game+, but could be wrong.

I'm really pretty sure that any ending unlocks Julius, and only the good ending unlocks New Game+.  I clearly remember having Julius available well before I beat the game the right way, because I made myself wait until I had gotten the good ending before trying Julius mode.  I wanted to use Julius mode to break things up before I gave the game another run on hard difficulty with New Game+.

edit: ah wait, I misunderstood you on the first read.  I think you're right, that makes sense with the story.
