  1. That's what the chick at Best Buy said. It's why I went with Fallout instead. And I almost didn't. I literally had Infamous IN MY HANDS, and she talked me into putting it back on the shelf. Actually, I can't remember the last time I downloaded a remix. I just listen to all the old ones I still have from when I first got interested here. Mostly Megaman and Sonic remixes. But yea, I'm pushing 30. Religiously following games and new consoles ended for me years ago. Now I just see which testimonials impress me more and throw around money like it's nothing. On a side note, Blu-Ray is fucking awesome. I mean, I didn't think I would be as impressed with it as I was, but damn.
  2. I went with the PS3 - mostly because they threw me a great deal. 80gb system, extra controller, hdmi cable, 3 games (I got to pick two) and 1 blu-ray movie. I got Fallout and GTA4, along with some game called Little Big Planet.
  3. I was told that they're coming bundled with a special version or some shit to be released in October.
  4. I'm pretty dedicated to action/adventure games and rpgs. First person shooters are pretty fun too. I don't care much for sports games, I get bored of fighters (Street Fighter, Soul Caliber, etc) quickly. But give me a game like Hitman or Max Payne or Splinter Cell or Prince of Persia and I'll play it for hours on end, repeatedly. I'm really itching to pick up the new Fallout - lucky me, it's on both systems. I've also been looking at that new Metal Gear. That's only PS3 though, I think.
  5. Which is better, the X360 or the PS3? If you haven't really ever played either, and you can afford both, which would you get? I really don't know much about either of them. I know that the Xbox is cheaper both in terms of the console itself and in the games, but that is really not an issue for me. I have no interest whatsoever in live gaming so please do not factor that into your value judgments. One person has told me that cross-platform games tend to be worse on the PS3. Can anybody verify that? Does the X360 controller suck just as much as the original Xbox controller? Because I fucking hated that and if the controller is pretty much the same, then tell me now because I won't bother with it. Put yourself in my shoes. I've got a wad of cash to blow, and I am totally ignorant about both systems. I've never even really played them much. Which way would you go?
  6. I don't remember which Sonic it was, but I loved the casino level where you were basically in ball form the entire time just bouncing off the level. I think it was Sonic 3, because I vaguely recall that the bubble/fire/electric shields. That level was a blast.
  7. It's not quite appropriate for this forum (because, god bless you music lovers and your basic integrity) - but I did a write up about MJ's death on my so-called-"blog", where it certainly fits with the fake attitudes regarding the subject. Call it my eulogy for the man. If you want the link, let me know.
  8. I'll be there. Meet me at the arch. Wear a flower.
  9. I burst out laughing when I read that. That said, I actually will really miss the guy. I know so many of his songs by heart. In law school, my buddy Erick and I used to torment the entire bar by stuffing $50 into the jukebox and play nothing but MJ. And then, when someone would try and trump our songs (by paying an ungodly amount), we'd trump it right back. And as I'm so fond of saying... he was Michael freakin' Jackson. The king of pop. I took such personal offense to the cocktail-party ridicule the poor guy got. And straight up, no bullshit... I don't care how many kids he (allegedly) molested - he freakin' EARNED it. If anyone deserved the right to molest children, it was Michael Jackson. Ahh MJ, he was always one of my alltime favorites. He's raping children in Heaven now, god rest his soul.
  10. I bet if Tim Burton asked Johnny Depp and HBC to make a snuff film he was directing, they'd do it.
  11. I didn't know this was here until someone PM'd me. Thanks. I think I'm actually STILL hungover from it. My buddies took me out for a two-day bender. It's a game we've been playing for years - a shot for every year. The idea is, if we make it to 40, it'll surely kill us. Which is cool, because what's the point of life after 40 anyway.
  12. 5 Days a Stranger, 6 Days a Sacrifice, and 7 Days a Skeptic are better.
  13. Tears for Fears - Everybody Wants to Rule the World; and The Police - Everything She Does is Magic. Over and over and over and over and over. I'm humming (if not outright singing, and sometimes dancing to) them both all day at work. Most of the time I'm not even consciously aware of it. My friend Trish and I were having lunch today and I was drifting off into space and she smacked me on the shoulder and says, "Are you whistling Tears for Fears?" Had no idea I was even doing it. I can't get either out of my head, and the only way it sates is to listen to them as loud as possible. I have no idea why this is happening, or if it's supposed to have any meaning. My (armchair psychologist) girlfriend keeps telling me that it's a deep-seeded inner conflict between my selfish personal desires for control that keep her at a distance (Tears for Fears) and my emotional connection to her and desire to really open myself up to her (The Police.) I keep telling her that it's because I'm secretly Ozymandias (a reference she actually got, before having seen the movie) and that the end of the latter song is just really catchy. She's not buying it, the latter half at least (though, she does keep asking, "Where are you right now?" when I close my eyes and zone out around 2:30 of Every Little Thing.) And it gets worse when I drink. Like, obsessive worse (ie. I have to hear it otherwise I start getting fidgety.) It's been like 9 days, and this hasn't subsided. They've been on perpetual repeat in my car. It's the first thing I turn on when I get home. And LOUD. Like, shaking the vents loud. My neighbors HAVE to be getting pissed by now. All you music freaks and wanna-be shrinks, what do you make of it?
  14. Only if I were a Democrat.
  15. I am known for going by other atomic animals, other than dogs.
  16. I think it would be better if she had been raised by cholos. Mang.
  17. I like adventure games (not to be confused with RPGs) such as Final Fantasy and Valkyrie Profile and so forth. I never really got into the sports games. They were too serious for me. The only ones I ever liked were like, NBA Jam, and Pigskin Footbrawl, and Mutant League Football. I mean, come on - half-court triple-flip dunks and grenades hidden in the football. That's good stuff there. Artesu, I think you and I may be the only people on the planet that hate Halo.
  18. Less of a proficiency needed for them. I'm busy playing the FF1 remake for PS2. Sure, I could go buy a sword and just slash at things - but A) I don't really know how to wield a sword; and people would think I'm a freak. Also, with regard to cooking specifically - it makes a mess. Especially if you don't know what you're doing. With regard to sports games - it's not just the sheer game of basketball. It's playing as your favorite team. And, let's face it, it's a whole lot less physically exhausting. I like playing park football as much as the next guy, but it wears me out afterwards. Whereas I can play 10 games of madden with my buddies (AND drink while we're doing it), and then go out to the bar afterwards. Additionally, sometimes it's hard to find enough guys for a good game of football. Also, one doesn't require a shower after a video game. As for guitar hero - you can feel like a rock star without having to spend months/years practicing. (And I'm pretty sure I've never heard of anyone trying to pick up on a girl by impressing her with his guitar hero skills.)
  19. I don't see a smirk here: I see homicidal rage.
  20. Native Jovian. I want him to die. Horrifically. Do you take bribes?

  21. Gay hate? We're talking about two different things here ace. PPR is going on about homosexuality. I'm simply using "gay" as a pejorative.
  22. Uh, because it's gay. And because every asshole with an internet connection that's ever watched MTV or listened to whatever their local pop-emo-rock station is suddenly thinks he/she's a poet. Watch: Oh, as I gather my insipid feelings And I look to the north to the horizon I feel as though I'm alone, but surrounded By nothing but my solitude. Alas, I realize that my solitude is shared Those out there like me reach out in a sympathetic cry Once again, the embers of my life are renewed As I pay for another month of World of Warcraft. --- Find this and other poems on my myspace page! --- Seriously. It's gay, and I want to smack the life out of "online poets."
  23. To tell everyone you're a homosexual? We don't care. It's the 21st Century.
  24. Uh, no. I did, however, find it fascinating that they (correctly) did away with the concept of currency given that they now existed in a world with unlimited resources (ie. tea, earl gray, hot) but found it strange that this world stll had a kind of governmental hierarchy. Based on what? Certainly not democracy. Who got to decide who was fit to be a Captain or not? The Federation, to me, seemed like it was ENTIRELY military-based. Every single job (which you weren't paid for) was somehow related to their military structure - whether you were a science officer, or an engineer, or a starship captain, or a ridiculously dressed bartender. I don't see any room in the federation for the poet, or artist, or drunken jerk that just likes to think shit up all the time. Nor do I see any place for leisure, but for "approved shore leave." You ask me, the Federation seems like a socially acceptable society of slaves.
