2161  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: 360 HDMI on: February 06, 2009, 11:17:07 PM
I have exactly that item, although I bought it at Gamestop.  It's worked like a charm for me.  Glad I got it.  As you may already know, it's tough to predict whether component or HDMI will look better, so as Eusis says, it may not make a difference in what you see.

However!  I bought mine because my new TV had 3 HDMI ports and 2 component ports, one of which could also accept composite.  The only other thing I had that uses HDMI was my PS3, but I had a number of things that could plug into those precious component/composite ports.  Buying this device essentially gave me another port on my TV, and that was totally worth it.

Here's a link to it on gamestop.com, where you can get it far cheaper than Amazon.  It's not available through the website, but you can put in your zip code and see if a Gamestop or EB Games near you has one in stock.  Their "in stock or not" checker has been pretty accurate for me whenever I've tried it.

I try not to look at the counter - it's depressing. ;-)

Crap, I got a buggy version? This is what happens when I make impulsive purchases. I tend to naturally default to PSP if a game is out on both DS and PSP (not that there are many).  

Don't worry about it too much - all versions had bugs... it's just that they all had different bugs.  The PSP's bug is that the companion effects don't actually work.  I played it on the PSP and never missed it... since I never got to play with it.

I have to ask - did you spell "peeve" wrong on purpose?  Because if so, I salute your subtle cleverness. :)

Feel like I'm very close to the end in Crisis Core.  Trying to make sure I finish this week.

Unfortunately, I got sucked back into the black hole of Animal Crossing.  I must not have made it to this point in the calendar year the last time I played, because for a while, everything I was catching was new.  Guess that golf game is going away for a while - these two are going to take all of my gaming time.

Cool - downloading now.
2167  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Blood Bowl on: February 02, 2009, 04:27:39 PM
Yeah - Mutant League Football (and a sequel, Mutant League Hockey).  In a similar (but non-RPG) vein, there was "Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball," and of course the seminal "Arch Rivals."

Apparently, there was a DOS version of Blood Bowl (which started as a board game) developed back in '95.  Now I have to find it. :D

Download Castle Crashers off of Live.  Best Hack & Slash RPG out there.

Geez - I knew I was forgetting something.  Check this out - heck, there's a demo available, so you can even try it for free!
2169  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Blood Bowl on: February 02, 2009, 08:31:27 AM
Found out about this game today and watched a trailer.  Looks interesting, and maybe even within the realm of what we'd cover here... but I'm not sure.  Will have to do more research.

Turn-based (or realtime) football with dwarves and lizardmen?  Wild.

I loved MUA!  Four times so far!  (To be fair, I have played it on more than one system.)  The 360 even has cool exclusive characters. :)

Pickings are pretty slim, anyway.  A quick memory and web search brought up nothing else.

On my walk to work today, I started an audio book called The Brotherhood of the Seven Kings. It's one of those librivox.org books, so you know it's old.  I'd never heard of it before, but the blurb on its page intrigued me.  Not far enough in to say whether it's good or not, but it looks like probably a collection of short stories about the same characters, which I like, especially for "walking to work" listening.
2172  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Mediocrity XLIII: The Super Bowl Thread on: February 02, 2009, 08:13:26 AM
Yeah, it was. As the biggest fan of the Colts you'll probably ever meet...

You might be surprised - my boss at work is almost literally a rabid fan.  She does the whole face-painting thing, goes to every home game, leaves work for Monday night games, etc.  Scary lady. :)

I was on a plane, and the satellite reception was lousy during the first quarter, then nonexistent for a while, so I just gave up.  Later, I decided to give it another shot, and found myself at the beginning of the fourth quarter with great reception for the rest of the game.  It was a great quarter!  That reminds me, though - I need to find that trailer for Land of the Lost that they played.  I only saw a few seconds of it.

Sorry - was referring to dalucifer0's post a few above yours regarding Expelled.  I should have used the magic "quote" button. 

Don't really know anything about Religious.  I've seen enough of Bill Maher aside from that movie to know that I agree with him on some things, don't agree with him on other things.  Mostly, I think he just feels more strongly about stuff than I do, which helps in his line of work. :)

I actually really like Blue Dragon so far.  I got it really cheap so I wasn't expecting much, but I really do like it.

Haha - I just started playing that yesterday, too.  I felt the same way.  Having fun so far, got it for cheap.  If you're not a manual reader, you might have missed this, but you can go up to just about everything and hit X to examine it for items or gold.  Apparently it's even a good thing if you find nothing, because there's a guy who will give you stuff later in the game based on how many nothings you've found.
2175  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Mediocrity XLIII: The Super Bowl Thread on: January 31, 2009, 11:40:23 AM
I'm so excited I've wet myself three times this week.  The people at the hotel now hate me for life.

Yeah... not really.  Anyone know what time it actually starts?  I've gotten more and more curious as the week has gone by and ESPN has talked more and more about their pre- and post-game coverage, but not said a word about when the actual game itself is.
