1336  The Rest / General Discussions / Telemarketing gone twisted on: July 07, 2006, 09:38:15 AM

Are we so weak that we need protecting from an enemy that can be VANQUISHED BY HANGING UP THE PHONE.

I'm quite capable of haging up the phone yes. I'm also signed up on a national list of "do not call these numbers, asshats" that telemarketers in Sweden are pretty much forced abide by.

But that doesn't change the fact that it's a rotten, rotten business, and that there are loads of telemarketers who take advantage of people. Excuse me for having a morality :P

There are also a ton of telemarketers that simply call because it's their job. Sure they are pushy, but when you get bonuses and incentives based on sales you pretty much have to be. Not all of them are trying to take advantage of people. They are simply trying to sell a product or service. It goes back to the old saying "A few bad apples can spoil the bunch". Your morality is shit for saying that "it is a rotten business". It's not the business, it's the assholes that take advantage of others.

I just want to get this in before the topic gets locked. Wow. What the fuck? Is it national retard month here on the fan? This is the most idiocy I have seen here in awhile. Hooray for douchebaggery.

There is talk of 3 more movies after this one. The main premise behind the 3 "new" movies is supposedly a Venom/Carnage story. That's why I think Brock will get the suit, but not until near the end. The best ending scene to set it up for a new 3 movie series would be Eddie Brock standing in a shadowy alley staring up at Peters apartment and having him talk to himself saying something along the lines of "Yes...we know him...and we will destroy him..." and having the suit then flow over his body forming the evil looking grin/mouth. That's just the comic/drama geek in me though.

I'm going to be supremely pissed if Venom pops up at the very end of the movie or something. I don't really give a fuck about Hobgoblin or Sandman(although he looks pretty cool).  Venom is the shit!!

From what I can tell the main baddies in this one are Sandman and Green Goblin (or Hobgoblin if they are going with the Ultimate Universe stories). It isn't Venom. Venom may appear, but it appears that Spidey keeps the suit for a very large portion of the movie. Also Sam Raimi has said that he didn't want to make a story about Venom unless he could reall flesh it out. Eddie Brock does appear (Played by Topher Grace) and could end up getting the suit, but I doubt that we will see him as a "main" villain in this movie.

Of course....he could end up being a villain, in which case I am going to be very very sad. He deserves better than half a movie.

I leveled a warrior from 15-18 today. I spent from about 10est until 2est doing so. I could have done it faster, I think, but I spent a good amount of time just running around exploring some stuff.

1343  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / WoW paid character transfer to cost $25 a pop on: June 23, 2006, 08:34:26 AM
They still haven't said whether that's per character, or whether you can do multiple characters from the same server to the same server with that. In a Blue response on WoW they made it seem like it was the latter. If so then I am happy.

Hey, if you still need the game, dude, let me know.

The fact that they have already updated that page is a great sign. Rogues aren't having very much done to them, from all that I have seen and heard. Cross-realm BG's could be awesome...or they could suck, depending on how they are done and how they manage the lag and server issues that are already there on some servers.

Picked mine up on the street date at my best buy. Got brain age for free with a promo deal, too.

I'll tell you, the brightness of the games makes you blind at first. It's like, "OH MY GOD WAS ANIMAL CROSSING ALWAYS THIS COLOR HAPPY?" O_o

I still have my old DS. Seeing if my friends wanna buy it before slepping it off to gamestop.

Overall, quite happy with my purchase.

If you had purchased your DS Lite at Gamestop and sold your old DS at the same time you would have gotten a pretty nice boost to the trade-in value of your old DS. The inclusion of Brain Age at Best Buy makes up for the boost, though.

Today was another slow day in WoW.  After hearing about Dagg's uber blue BoE haul over on Alliance, I decided to do a bit of instance farming myself.  My greatest acquisition?  Two fused wiring. :P

It turns out that one of the members of my Horde guild is also a member of one of the largest Alliance raid guilds on Norgannon.  And here I thought none of us had raid experience.  Now all we have to do is...get 33 more people to join, then we'll be in shape. :P

2 Members of our guild have lots of raid experience. Shivver used to have serveral 60's and I believe he used to raid before he quit.

All of which pales in comparison to the quick and convenient transportation options available in competing MMORPGs.

You can go online with the core pack and no HD - but you probably won't be able to download much. Even if you can download some of the files that're online, all of the demoes would simply be too big to fit on it.

Personally, I'd just jump for the Premium system - unlike the PS3, there isn't any essential hardware you'd miss out by just getting the Core system (unless chrome plated disc drives are a must have), but it's just more convinent, and probably cheaper, to get that and be done with it.

Yeah, in the long run you are better of getting the premium system since even with the core you would still need to buy a memory card. That is about half of the difference in price right there. Not to mention the wireless controller. Just spend that little extra and get the premium. Otherwise don't even bother.
1350  The Rest / General Discussions / EB Games - controlled by communist nazis on: June 07, 2006, 09:46:23 AM
Yeah, they are not supposed to do that when therre is an FSI like this. I should know, I am the manager of an EB. Contact the gamestop feedback service and let them know what happened. They will then contact the District Manager and the DM will then contact you. Unless you know the DM it can be hard to actually contact them directly, unless those guys are breaking that rule too. They should have a sign up with the phone number for the gamestop complaint line.

Also, Miho, the not selling used N64 and PSX games isn't for every store. We are no longer taking them at any store, but typically they have all been shipped to one or two stores in the district. Usually the stores that sell the most or have the extra room.
