@Dice: Hah, my dad walks into my room while I'm gaming and curses at me AND my friends online. It's become so regular that everyone laughs about it. Meicyn's been around for it a few times, and always has a laugh about it.

Been fucking busy as all hell recently. Ton of install work, 5 different locations, more cat.6, rca, hdmi, toslink, vga, rs232, neutrek, iec, and every other possible type of power/data/video/audio/IT connection then I ever cared to see in my life. It's amazing how I don't lose my mind doing it. I just (almost) finished re-assembling a home entertainment equipment rack on the upper west side, more equipment in it then most of you guys probably have for your home entertainment centers combined. It's impressive, considering the people who bought it don't even use it.

Nothing like working in residential buildings....you get booted out at certain times no matter how tangled in a mess of wire you are.

The Five Guys at Dulles Airport opens at 6:30 AM. I love America.
Careful not to go there during the winter, Bruce Willis tends to blow up planes there

He was awesome. I would play games in my room and he would walk over and just chill, meow to get me to pet him a little bit, then walk out and go sleep somewhere awkward. He got out once, but came home, which resulted in him just leaving whenever he felt like. The last time he left he never came home...but every now and then I'd be sitting in my garage playing some games (kind of like a man cave for my teenage years) and he'd walk over, come inside and chill for a bit. He'd let me pet him a little bit, and then he'd walk off again. He was the king of the neighborhood...my little badass. I ended up moving a year after that and basically lost track of him...he'd be 13 now. Wasn't the friendliest kitty but he was so cool...

I'm sorry to hear about your loss dude. It may have been a pet, but he may as well have been your brother from the sound of it. Just remember, you gave him a good life, even if it was undeservingly short, and that you also have another lovely kitty friend who's there for support. Cats are pretty good at being there when you need it.

Makes me miss my pall Meep...

New Young Justice today...so glad its back. I think they changed the artists up a bit, because characters look slightly different, especially for close ups. Cheshire, for example, when they closed in on her rage face, there was so much more detail than I ever remember from thr old episodes. I like it, even if she looked like an angry old lady for it.

Introducing Arsenal...heh heh.

I'm a nitpicker, but how can you say the controls were awkward? Functionality haa been vastly improved, the speed is overall faster, the melee combat handled incredibly well once you figured it out (initial melee is a stun, similarly to shooting a knee or shoulder in RE4 and 5, followups were instant kills). I don't see a problem with x being the everything button, it's far better than wasting a button for something as trivial as readying the knife. I agree that the cover system is complete shit, and I doubt it's gonna be fixed, but I barely used it anyway. Sure Chris' campaign felt like a scene out of CoD, but blame that on the people of the world being mindless zombies (see what I did there?).

I like it, and I really hope it does well.

I am not pleased by this. They better put X in the next Dragon's Dogma to sooth my rage.

As a resident evil title, I am disappointed. It's not scary at all anymore, the fright factor is gone. It's a shame, even the cheap thrills feel have no real fear inducing effect. I mean christ, enemies are on the floor and inactive, and you trip over them as you walk. It's as bad as smash brothers brawl's stupid ass tripping. Chris's scenario was so action paced it didn't have any feel of impending doom at all. You wanted to rush forward and just destroy shit....

Which leads me to my actual opinion. The new controls are astounding, if a bit difficult to get used to at first. Reminded me of going from MGS3 to MGS4. It feels familiar, but so much more to it. It actually reminded me of mgs4 with the rolling and prone fire. Running in as Chris and just shooting everything in so many ways... I was in my glory. The new melee tactics are impressive too, like Leon's awesome bulldog, and the facesmash against walls and fences. The new controls are a huge step in the right direction. They SERIOUSLY need to fix cover though. It's far too flaky as it stands, sometimes you go in, most of the time you eat a shitstorm of bullets. The qte you saw in yggdrasil's video is sort of misleading, it's actually not so silly, you're choosing directions to look in and find the keys, not just run through predetermined motions in a set time limit. More qte's like that would be nice, like if a large enemy grabbed you and you had to aim your knifr at a weak point to stab instead of just mashing your controller like a fiend to get out of its grip, similarly to dead space.

The demo has me excited, I really look forwars to this game.

I guess I'll just drink more arizona iced teas. They're cheaper anyway.

Dem qte's....oh gawd.

Yes, peace walker is definitely worth playing.

If you all haven't done so yet, truly recommend a pre order at any place offering the preorder bonuses. Plenty of extra crap for an early promise you'll buy it. As much as I hate lamestop, I enjoy the game more so I put mine in already (2weeks ago).
2758  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Soda Restriction/Ban! on: September 14, 2012, 10:45:53 PM
Soda isn't culinary shit, it's just heavily processed now. I've had a fresh lime soda made of freshly carbonated water and lime syrup (lime juice and sugar ) that was actually very tasty. You overprocess something to make it cheap and mainstream, and of course it's not going to be healthy. When was the last time you bought a container of fruit juice that was 100% juice and didn't cost triple the price of an equally sized juice cocktail or juice drink? Here's a good one, how many 100% juice drinks are 100% of the same juice? Juicy Juice was notorious for that. Ideally we should only eat fruit and drink only water. Course, that means you have to buy water now, since only a few places in the world offer decent tap water. A 16 ounce bottle of water, btw, costs as much as a 12 ounce can of soda, or a 23 ounce can of Arizona iced tea (another sugary atrocity that just tastes awesome).


If you'd like to know why so many people drink so much soda, it's because a 2 liter bottle of generally any soda in most super markets only costs a dollar and fifty cents, unless you get a sale where then it's a buck. The equivalent 2 quart (wait sorry, moat orange juice companies changed that, now 59 ounce) container of Orange Juice now costs minimally 3 dollars when on sale, generally 4 or better otherwise. Even if we succumb to lower value juice drinks like ocean spray juice cocktails (30% juice, 40 grams of sugar per serving roughly) or tropicana fruit punches (15% juice and about the same sugar content) we still see prices twice as high as the equivalent 2 liter bittle of soda. Guess what ladies of gentlemen, healthy=expensive. Not everyone is a multimillionaire like michael bloomberg, most of us actually work to get paid (check bloomberg's yearly salary as mayor, guarantee you'll be shocked). If I had a 6figure salary I'd probably be drinking only 100% fruit juice as well, but til I hit the mother lode and make some serious cash, soda is cheaper, and diet soda is sugar free anyway.

You know what's funny? They keep saying "sugary soft drinks", but the average glass of juice has as much sugar as any soda on the market.
2760  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Soda Restriction/Ban! on: September 14, 2012, 02:27:30 PM
Considering that the normal size drink in most fast food establishments is a 22 ounce cup, that's alot of menu re-writes for just one state.
