  1. Has anyone mentioned the fact that all the employees refer to you as bro, guy or chief? I suppose they don't really care as they are speaking to clientele that talk like that to each other, but to not be treated like I live in a frat house would be great. Also, the constant up-selling on everything drives me bonkers.

  2. That was indeed the thread I was looking for, thanks. I'd like to sell it for enough to cover the cost and the shipping fee plus a little more. I'm not entirely greedy. Craigslist and ebay was were I was looking for prices. You bring up a good point to hold onto it until the demand picks up and the supply is down.

  3. So I just picked up the deluxe last week and have yet to open it. Come to find out that the wife bought me one as an xmas present. Is anyone interested in buying this thing before I return it? What would be a fair price for it? I'm seeing $500 all over the net. I would next day FedEx if anyone was interested. Also, I tried searching for the 'For Sale' thread but couldn't find it. If this is in the wrong forum I apologize.

  4. I for one am curious about this. The fact that online gaming spawns such horrid behavior from people because of anonymity negatively effects what should be an enjoyable activity. I think this is a step in the right direction to show people who behave like ass-hats that there are consequences to their actions. Of course, I can also see this system being abused.

  5. Well I didn't see it in 3D because I don't really care for that kind of gimmick. 3D or not, it's definitely worth seeing in the theater on a big screen. It's an absolutely gorgeous piece of work.

    Indeed. I typically don't see the 3D fare either, but when the ticket is free, I'm not one to complain.

  6. I just got back from seeing Disney's Tangled earlier this evening.

    I have to say, this is one of the finest Disney fairy tales I've seen in a very, very long time. It's quite honestly on the level of The Little Mermaid or Beauty and the Beast, and a massive improvement over the disappointing Princess and the Frog.

    The animation is jaw-droppingly beautiful, the songs were memorable, and most importantly, it was an extremely well told story, with actual character arcs and development and villains with motivations that made sense.

    I said this earlier to my friends, but as soon as this movie started I was transfixed. I haven't felt this way about a Disney movie in a long time; I thought for sure that they just didn't know how to make a fairy tale anymore, but they proved me wrong.


    It's interesting that you made reference to The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, because as soon as the movie started, for whatever reason, those were the two movies I thought of as well. I too thought the animation was great, I saw it in 3D and the effects were subtle and cool, and didn't come across as gimmicky. The place I noticed the 3D effect the most was after Rapunzel had her hair braided and had various things in her hair i.e. flowers, jewelery. The detail and the depth of field that it created was pretty cool. Let's hope this is a hint of things to come from Disney.

  7. Hey all,

    I've got a 17'' macbook pro with a 23'' led monitor connected to it. I tried playing some half life 2 today but found it wouldn't throw the image on my larger monitor. I attempted to look for settings that would allow me to do so but to no avail. I'm currently running my second monitor in just a standard desktop, not mirrored. Has anyone had any experience with this?


  8. DragonBallZ Budokai 1&2. The fact that the AI could just turtle in the corner and not be hurt by anything blew my mind. I would unload on them and would get nothing out of it. Of course when I tried the same 'technique' I would get my ass served left and right. Many a controller was destroyed because of that game.
