4. Epic: "Wii is a virus." Apr 21, 2008, 12:21 Hyatus
 
You know, I do partly agree with him in that my Wii does not get used much. The rest of it makes him sound a little...ermm....prissy?

I have a feeling he'd only play a game that looked pretty.

I will say, though, that Nintendo makes great games for the Wii. The third-party support sucks. There are a few great exceptions(looking at you, Resident Evil 4 / DBZ:Budokai / RaymanRR). But on the whole most of the games suck at utilizing the controllers even adequately. There are a million things those remotes can do but it seems that developers can't get a handle on them. Until they do it will be a system that will get dusted off for a week now and again throughout the year.

I still can't believe people pay $60 for PS3 and XBox360 games.

Employer suckiness aside, if we're talking specifically about high-end processors I'd agree with you.

However, in the low to mid-range CPUs AMD still wins out in both price and performance.

And yeah, they really blew it with the first Phenom release.
Hopefully the new steppings fix that.

Apparently they are using land that has already been cleared for their palm oil(if you believe the ABC baking company). So, what's the issue?

Besides, orangutans are less tastier than Thin Mints anyways. I know when I get the munchies that I much prefer the taste of yummy girl scout cookies(Samoa=best;Thin Mints=close to best) to monkey. YMMV

Girl Scout: I only like all-natural foods and beverages, organically grown, with no preservatives. Are you sure they're real lemons?
Pugsley: Yes.
Girl Scout: I'll tell you what. I'll buy a cup if you buy a box of my delicious Girl Scout cookies. Do we have a deal?
Wednesday: Are they made from real Girl Scouts?"

I don't understand why they should rot in hell.
They're generally more affordable than Intel processors and run just as well if not better.

If anything they need a better PR campaign.
My dad knows the words Intel and Pentium, but if you ask him who AMD is he just shrugs.

That's because being a real pirate is not as fun as the movies make it out to be.

Wow...did you just graduate from Trolling school or are you still a student? I'm leaning towards the latter here.

It'd be nice if Valve would do this instead.

Yeah.
Unfortunately, on the teenager's side feeling cool is not the same as actually BEING cool.

Guitar hero may make a fake, virtual audience love you but, at the end of the day it's the real guitarists who get laid.

Most of these are awesome and better than mine, except:
8. Gamer's Paradise

I've got a similar setup except mine is a projector that takes up my whole wall. Screw plasma.

The real question is: Does smoking WEED affect the disk laser?

This game is fun. I often prefer to play this over TF2.
Only downside is that more people need to play.

He never watched himself on Star Trek or Boston Legal.
The only performance I would want him to watch would be his rendition of 'Rocket Man' just so he could feel the torture he gave to us.

I have yet to see Casino Royale(and with an 8 month-old now romping throughout the house probably won't see it for a good 15 years). However, two things I'd like to note.

First...what's wrong with Bond spewing puns inside a hidden volcano fortress while the timer ticks down? It worked just fine in Dr. No(well, it was more of an island than a volcano, but I digress).

Second, in any case I still believe it's completely different from the original book series(which is an excellent read btw, as I'm not generally into spy novels), so they're all really producer-written these days anyways.

Third, yeah, after Batman Returns it sharply rolled downhill. I mean Gotham ended up being more Vegas than seedy New York. However, I can't believe all the Robin hate. Robin's been in the comic book since nearly the beginning. What needed to happen was for Tim Burton to show us the darker Robin that would've made an excellent sidekick in Returns, maybe.

As a side-note, if anyone gets a chance to see Sweeney Todd, I suggest you take it. It's a great film and now I actually want to go see the stage musical. I never thought THAT would happen.

I'm sick of all the reviewers that don't give props to TeamFortress. It's like they all think TeamFortress Classic was the first iteration in the series.

Just my pet peeve?
