A Descriptive Analysis of Gerald Ford's Remarks on Signing a Proclamation Granting Pardon to Richard Nixon


Send me a copy, will you?  My sleeping medicine prescription is running out. ;-)

Actually, that's probably at least mildly interesting.  A lot of people were pretty freaking ticked when that happened.

Rented Killzone for PSP last week and had a bunch of fun with it, but eventually got tired of the number of missions where the method for success was "die until you get everything exactly right."

Started playing Patapon.  Talk about a unique game...  It's good stuff but definitely a niche game.

Definitely read it - a great book.  It's worth buying, and more than worth reading for FREE.

I missed the second of those too, Sand.  Screwed up and dismissed someone I was supposed to hang onto.  Oh, well.  I felt the same way when I got to the end.  Great game, but there are so many great ones that it's tough to spend the time playing through more than once.

I rented Metal Gear Acid and Killzone Liberation this week.  Didn't finish Syphon Filter yet, but was in a bad mood and wanted to try something new.  I tried to like Metal Gear Acid, but couldn't, so I dropped it.  I'm liking Killzone quite a bit so far, but I'm only a few missions in.

And because I just can't stop the overload, I bought Patapon tonight.  Haven't started it yet, but a rhythm action strategy rpg... it seems weirdly up my alley, and it was only $20 brand new.

Man.  Where would I be without my PSP?  (Probably playing Professor Layton on my DS.)

Playing Mythos has really made me miss Diablo II... so I reinstalled it yesterday.  I was under some kind of impression that I was lower on hard drive space than I'd like to be, so I installed it on a 2 gig USB drive.  (In case anyone wonders, that was enough space to do the Multiplayer install of the core game and then add on the expansion.)  Works like a charm, although my laptop's monitor seems to have a bit of a beef with the 800x600 screen size, so I have to play it windowed.

Saw this video today and had to pass it on.  It's someone's 3-year-old daughter explaining Star Wars Episode IV.

From the Naruto review: "This review is almost over? Believe it!"

I actually lol'd at that.  I keep seeing Naruto games out there, and none of them are what I'm looking for - a decent RPG.  This one had completely escaped my notice, so I'm glad you mentioned it.  I'll probably pick it up now.

Yeah!  Metallica!  

Oh, wait.  That's not what you said, is it?  Never mind.

;)

(I really liked the music in KH - might have to buy this album.)

Talking about being eaten voluntarily reminded me of a report I saw a while back on people like that (they call themselves "vores").  Very disturbing to me.

...our tabooless western culture ...


Well... we're not entirely taboo free, we just don't have that particular taboo.  I mean, if a newspaper here in the US dared to print a topless woman, more than a few heads would roll (figuratively speaking, of course).  In England, however, Page 3 girls are a longstanding tradition of The Sun.  Sure, it's a tabloid, but it's still a newspaper.
2411  The Rest / General Discussions / 1UP to replace numerical scoring with letter grades on: February 19, 2008, 12:41:29 PM
Quote from: "dalucifer0"
If anything is below a 7/10, that's essentially an F, a bad game.


Well... I'd say stuff scoring 6 or 6.5 is like a D.  Not good, but not an utter failure, either.  Games in that range can be fun, but only under certain circumstances (e.g. you really love that kind of game).  Below 6, though, it's just a variation on how badly it fails.  Is it playable but not fun (5), or is it actually not possible to even install the game (0)?

Playing Syphon Filter (the newer one) on my PSP.  Tazing guys isn't as fun now that they just smoke instead of catching fire (fire was just over the top and funny, smoke is not over the top, so not funny).  Almost as fun as the first game, but I'm not loving the underwater stuff, because I tend to hide behind things, peek out, headshot, hide again.  Can't do that while swimming.

Spent my weekend playing solo tour on Rock Band - drums on medium.  That freaking Green Grass song!  It killed me 96% of the way through the song.  Most songs, I try to get 5 stars.  That song, I'll satisfy for finishing.

I think Hidoshi was just saying it's a cool name.  A quick Google search turned up this cool Montalvo, though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juan_Montalvo

I really want to contribute to the serious discussion, but everything I think of looks stupid when I type it out.  Good luck, Tsundere.  Being a teenager is tough, and the only good news is that it ends at some point.  You know, when you are 20. :)

There was a car name, I think it was a chevy, and the name of the car in mexico was basically shit if I remember correctly.


I think you're thinking of the Nova, which if you split it up to "no va" literally means "it doesn't go."

They also make the Cortina, which cracks me up because it means "curtain."
2415  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Writers Strike on: February 17, 2008, 11:40:25 AM
I got into Reaper by watching it online during the strike.  Good stuff, and I can't wait to see more.  

I'll be happy to see Heroes come back next year, too.  A fair portion of this season sucked, but the writers admitted that before the strike and said "things are gonna change."  Then, the strike happened and they had to mess with the end of season 2 so it could be the end of the season.  At least that's how I understand it.
