I made a huge purchase and finally got myself an HDTV (52" Sony), along with a PS3 that came with Uncharted and Guitar Hero for free. Can't wait to get it delivered -- I've never had the pleasure of playing video games on a huge HDTV. :D

Oh, sandy - you're gonna enjoy it.  I got a 52" around Christmas, and it is awesome.  Congrats and have fun with it!

You liked Mirrormask, eh?  I did too, although mostly for the visuals.  One of the only movies I've actually watched on DVD.  It's too visual not to.  You can't just listen to it - you'll miss out on a lot.

Just asking, not trying to raise a big stink.

np - no stink raised.  And hey, most of us also like games that aren't RPGs, too.  :)

Mass Effect - Played through Virmire
Code:
What the hell? Wrex goes bonkers and gets killed. Then I had to choose between Ashley and Kaiden? It happened so fast that I didn't realize I was picking who lives and who dies. I picked Ashley because I figured I was already there anyway. Then Shepard tells Kaiden to "die proud" or something and it registered. Now I'm pissed, and even a little sad.
I'm going to do a few more side quests then head off to Ilos

In regards to your coded situation:

Code:
The Wrex situation is considered to be an 'impossible' dialogue tree - there's no way to get out, unless you put sufficient skill in Charm or Intimidate.  I was able to bully Wrex into realizing that the living members of his race would just be pawns using intimidate.

I went the other route, and that worked too.  Can't remember the specifics of how it went down, but you actually get an achievement for pulling it off.

Ever since I learned the power of Quake, I've been working hard on finishing up all of the missions on Crisis Core.  This is gonna take a while. :P

According to our site's definition, the first one didn't, so I doubt the sequel will either.  According to my own personal definition, though, the first one was, and I don't know enough about this one to say. :D

Did you hear about the insanity they were considering in Oregon?  Putting GPS devices on all cars and charging gas taxes based on where you drove and at what time of day.  Taking a busy road at rush hour costs more in maintenance than taking a country road at midnight, so you'd pay more for taking the busy road.  The funding part sounds kind of logical, but how freaky would it be for the government to always know exactly where your car is? 

I'm sure they said "Oh, but we wouldn't monitor or use the data in real-time." 

But that would have changed to "Except for if a crime has been committed.  Hey, you'd want us to use it to find your car if it was stolen, right?" 

And people would have said "Oh, yeah, that's a good idea.  Do that."

And then it would have turned into "Well, you know how terrorists are, so we're just going to monitor them, too."

And before probably a year had passed, we'd be in the same illegal wiretapping situation we have been with the Feds, but with our cars instead of our phones. 

BTW, I'm not really some crazy "the gov'mint's gonna kill us all" guy - I'm just seeing disturbing trends these days in terms of what they want to do and what people are cool with, and then how the people get all surprised (but not very angry) when it snowballs into something way bigger than they thought it would.  As the now-famous Benjamin Franklin quote goes, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."

Don't part of federal taxes go toward maintaining interstate highways/freeways?

Yeah, apparently after the events of the last movie (whatever they were), the Romulan empire pretty much fell apart, and he's a mighty ticked off dude.

Caught Push at the theater the other night.  With my low standards, it was a pretty fun show.  Some people felt like there were pretty big plot holes, but I didn't think it was that bad, and I didn't care anyway.  The only thing I really didn't like was that I felt they tried to make Dakota Fanning sexy, and that's just wrong.  She's 14, for heck's sake.  I did like her character, just not how they dressed her.

(Geez, I must be old.)

His stuff is hit and miss for me - some of it I really enjoy, some of it I don't.  I hope to like this movie, though.  I have found in my movie watching that I prefer to have my lower standards and find a lot of stuff entertaining rather than expect every movie to be amazing and then be disappointed 80% of the time.

Me too - if I can't buy physical stuff, I'm tied to an internet connection or at least a computer when I want to buy new stuff OR swap out games. 

Gaming on the go + being tied down = fail.  I just need to look at my Virtual Boy to be reminded of that.

Check it out - not me, but it's my new "collection" of amigurumi who sit on my desk.  Dr. Zoidberg, a "corporate zombie" (that's blood on his face - it's redder than my phone camera makes it look), and Cthulhu.  You can't see them well, but he has awesome little wings on his back.

I <3 Ron Paul btw. Call me a Paul-Tard and I will punch you in the gonads.

What about a Re-Ron? ;)

Spent the last week or so playing nothing but Blue Dragon Plus.  (Review to be posted shortly.)  Finished it, now trying to finish up the stuff I left behind in Crisis Core... before I break down and buy Retro Game Challenge.
