Good news.

In a related note I got caught in the crowd after the gay pride parade in Chicago.

It is a good game... I just realized that I'll probably only play fighting games with a group of friends.

I also wish I could return the atari jaguar.

I've never actually taken a game back but there are games I wish I could have.

That robocop v terminator game on SNES comes to mind

I wish I could take back Super Street Fighter 4, because I never will probably play it.

Went to target to get some things.

+1 and I were walking around laughing at dumb shit like highschoolers.

We found this pet brush and on the case it said "you've got to be shedding me!"

We almost pissed our pants laughing at that.

Then I got a step stool out, and I went to the top and farted.

We laughed so goddam hard it probably looked like I was having a heart attack.

I pre-ordered the LOTR extended blu-ray boxset on best buy. it's only 70. regular price is over 100 bux. I don't need to own a lot of movies w/ netflix. But LOTR will get a lot of mileage.

I thought that the chairs at barbershops could be lifted all the way up into the ceiling, like in that old bugs bunny cartoon

I really know how to make contribute.

I go to get my hair did at a "salon school"

Well they give you neckrubs and a scalp massage w/ some scented oil before every cut. This time I had a dude who was gay and fabulous.

At first I was a little tense, you know... having a dude rub me up. This wasn't a typical "ok i need to give you this because that's what we do."
He really put his heart and soul into it...

It was ok I guess.

One of the best damn haircuts I ever had

Thinking the Atari Jaguar was a good decision

I haven't played all of the DLC, just Broken Steel and The Pitt.

Broken Steel is essential to get and download right away right when you start the game, so you can level up to 30 and continue exploring after end game.

The Pitt was pretty lame... I admit to getting it only for achievement point whoring.

Not sure if you can install DLC to a USB.

The file sizes for DLC I have is:
Broken Steel: 621 mb
Operation Anchorage: 370
Pitt: 493

Kind of playing devil's advocate here since I'm generally more fond of Japanese games, but I'm a girl and I've never had a problem with Western art direction. I loved the visuals of the Baldur's Gate games and Planescape Torment, and The Witcher 2 is just about the most impressive looking game I've ever seen. It's true that I do tend toward softer, more cartoonish art, but my (also female) friend swears by a more realistic approach and swoons over the graphics of games like Uncharted and Mass Effect. So I'd be inclined to say it's less of a male-female thing and more one of personal taste.

Now if you're having a go at games for not presenting compelling female characters from a writing perspective a lot of the time, then there I'm with you. But it's something that's getting better and better. And I wouldn't say Western games are any more guilty of it than Japanese ones. Heck if nothing else, Western RPGs usually offer you the chance to play as a girl if you want to, as well as giving you some degree of control over her appearance and personality. Yes there are token bimbos in some Western games, but that's true of Japanese games too. Heck there are plenty of Japanese games that trade either heavily or completely on female sex appeal. Ar Tonelico 3, anyone?

Oh, and reading back on previous posts, was Uncharted being cited as a game that isn't really appealing to women? Really? I thought both Drake and Elena were fantastic, well-rounded leads that would appeal equally to those of both genders. And I had a pretty massive crush on Drake over the two games.

You or your friend wouldn't happen to be single, would you? I love women with brains.

At least be a creep to someone who has more than 11 posts.

I'm playing this right now too... the game is just downright gorgeous and handles pretty well (feels like a fucking sonic game).

My only complaint is that at certain times when you're moving pretty fast it sort of becomes hard to see details like enemies and platforms. I'm not sure if it's because the backgrounds are super-detailed, it's just a demo, or i'm tired and just having a hard time :)

The remix of the green hill zone theme is bringing some major nostalgic tears to my eye. I was born in 1982 so I was at the right age when sonic first came out to just absolutely freak out about how cool that game was.

Is it some rule around here that you must link the hugest possible images possible?

The 1st picture Azrael posted there makes him look taller than tall.

I used to think I had a shot at becoming a star athlete

Note: Never played any teams sports except for one year of little league baseball and one year on my high school bowling team
