Krieger had some of the best random quotes, but all of them have such great lines.

Daaaaaannnnyyyyy!

My top 3 fav Krieger quotes

- Your authority is not recognized in Fort KickAss

- The secret ingredient, is Phone

- And *I* love that I have an erection

Krieger for the win :-)

And an honorable mention to his Flex account rants.

The wife hates it when I mention the DANGER ZONE!

Laaaanaaaa!

*giggle* *giggle* *giggle* (whisper) danger zone

Season 1 of Archer is quite easily the most quotable season of any TV show I've ever seen. Season 2 is good as well, but the one-liners in S1 are just insane.

Any "platform" that has no tactile buttons will never be my gaming machine of choice.

Yeh. I've tried a bunch of games on it, and while some arcade-type games do "alright" it's not going to be much of a platform for me. Just the occasional Angry Birds and a couple of others when I'm bored.

Network to be just as shitty as their current 3G network.

Eh, for what it's worth. By me AT&T is still way better than T-Mobile and Sprint in terms of coverage.

Verizon beats the coverage by me and their 4G beats AT&T's 3G and current "4G." But AT&T's 3G beats Verizon's 3G.

That and I'm grandfathered in for unlimited data.


With Verizon having 4G and some good phones, the only thing keeping me on AT&T is the ability to swap out SIMs and a couple of minor things. Verizon is slightly more expensive, but my work-discount for Verizon is slightly higher than AT&T's so it balances out.

Yes. Yes, it really was. It rewrote practically 90% of existing cannon, it totally and utterly fucked up scientific progression throughout the timeline, and it was just plain fucking bad.
OK, yes... cannon was out the window. An Enterprise before Pike's, retconning Vulcans a little bit, the Expanse, a couple of mini Death Stars, etc. And a bunch of the story archs were rubbish.

But I liked Archer/Tripp/Malcom and a few others. T'Paul was just eye candy but at least had some character development.

I liked the final season, as well as the stand-alones scattered throughout the series. Some of the Expanse episodes were also alright and might as well have been stand-alones.

Was it GREAT? NO
Was it alright? Sure

But it's all just opinion... even 99.9% of people agreeing on something subjective is just opinion.

Every time I see "Archer" I always think of Captain Archer, and bile comes rushing up my throat. Damn Enterprise is bad...

I don't get the hate. Sure, it wasn't the best Trek to date but it wasn't THAT bad.

And as it stands, I liked Scott Bakula as Capt Archer. The writing wasn't that great, and the underlining story-arc wasn't exactly well thought out... but the characters were OK.

Archer was alright, only one episode in so I can't tell if the season-quality is maintaining.

I didn't catch the credits last night but I guess that Patrick Warburton (aka Putty) as the man hunter. If so, it was a decent repeat of his Brock Samson personality from Venture Brothers (particularly the flare gun scene... very Brock).

I guess the 3 episodes this calendar year are going to focus on a specific adventure. And I'm fine with that, so long as they keep showing the rest of the team doing their mundane duties and having hysterical conversations.

Tie Fighter 3!!! (Keeps fingers crossed)

Umm, didn't you skip a number?

There was (from Tie Figher, on...):
  • Tie Fighter

  • Tie Fighter: Defender of the Empire (an expansion)

  • Various collections / special editions of Tie Fighter. One had another set of missions.

  • XWing vs Tie Fighter

  • XWing Alliance
  •

    This is what I'm betting on. Lucas wants to pretend that Episodes 4-6 don't exist.
    I think its more like he wants to try and vindicate his decision to go all whack in ep 1-3. More like "oh yeah? You don't like clone wars? Well you are going get more of it so suck it down!"

    Honestly, if the combat is fun and it runs smooth I'd only be slightly let-down if the era was around Ep1-Ep3 instead of Ep4-Ep6. I had loads of fun with XWing Alliance even though a solid percentage involved flying civilian / commercial ships.

    That all being said, Tie Fighter is still my favorite PC game ever. And would love a REAL/HONEST/HONORABLE sequel.

    It's OK, Walking Dead was fucking terrible. I say can that shit and give their budget to Breaking Bad.

    My only problem with Walking Dead is that I hate the Zombie genre. With the exception of "Sean of the Dead" I never watch them.

    I'm just not a fan of the "gross factor" films and shows, and would rather make the 1hr round-trip drive to find/buy a book (and read it) than sit through watching decaying bodies munching on some guy's severed limb or chasing the heroes. Even if they're not the main focus of the show.

    It's not a matter of being scared of it or it making me want to vomit. I just do not like them.

    I like the writing and voice acting in Archer, but I have a hard time getting past the super low-budget animation.
    I dig the animation, more-so than other "different" styles like "Ugly Americans." Though UA's comedy and such has grown on me.

    Archer's animation is like Sea Lab 2020 (or the old spoof Sea Lab 2021).

    It was a decent premiere, though Season 1 is still my favorite. I must have seen S1 of Archer about a dozen times now since it's short, funny, and very quotable.

    How many years in development and its still got bugs like this? What a waste of time, they coulda found the cure for cancer with all that effort..

    I hate that phrase / joke. I've heard it elsewhere.

    It's like the world hasn't already spent decades, billions and billions of dollars, and thousands-upon-thousands of man hours on the problem already.

    The only thing it needed was a few dozen IT people an artists working on it between StarCraft and WoW updates, and a couple million dollars (if that).

    I remember how Lagfestic Diablo2 could get, so this is welcome news. Although I have to admit to being a little skeptical about it, I mean ok you can predict how and where the monsters will move and attack but how do you handle the player (and other players)???

    Agreed.

    If 2 players are playing co-op over a major distance with high latency, and both are hacking away at the same enemy... how is that handled?

    It's one thing if one player takes care of one squad of zombies to the north while the other player handles skeletons to the west.

    But how does it fairly handle them charging into the middle of a huge squad and hack away. Did the skeleton die before or after he struck a fatal blow against player #2. Why didn't player #1 get the loot even though it looks like he dealt the final blows. If player #2 is lagged, did he waste his "spell of pownage" on nothing? etc

    - So either there's lag and you ignore it, in which case things get out of sync or rewards are given out oddly.
    - Or you have the lag, and t acts like a traditional lag-fest.

    Yeh, good call Blue.

    My drawer at work is a huge mess, since I have to keep around old Serial cables and other legacy things. So it's just a big artist's depiction of the flying spaghetti monster.

    Instead of twisty-ties and things, just saving some tubes looks like it works well.

    2. White Castle fan claims eatery needs to supersize its seats Sep 14, 2011, 10:23 kanniballl
     
    I'm big, really big, and only go to a fast food place maybe 2 times a year. But I've noticed some places with the built-in seating like that walking through the mall or street or something.

    He makes point when he mentions pregnant women and the handicapped, a case which is missed in the comments that instead wish to say a lot of hateful things.

    Honestly, the only thing I find memorable about the article is the comments: the story itself is a non-issue. The comments are hateful and vile, yet society has no problem with people making them (even in-person). Even adults will chuckle when they hear someone say it to someone else, like it was flippin' middle school.

    I mean, change things around even slightly... mentioning a person's flamboyant clothing / odd tatoos / over-doing it on "supportive garments" or surgeries and the person would be villified. Yet making fun of the fat guy is OK.

    Just venting, had someone blow up at me at the store the other day. I wanted to punch his lights out.

    1. Alderaan Shot First Sep 14, 2011, 10:08 kanniballl
     
    LOL

    That is good.

    Of course, if too many people like it, Lucas will add it to his next release and then inexplicably lose the original source material for the pre-Alderaan-retcon stuff.

    So, perhaps we should keep quiet about it.

    Alright, I'm going to go tumbler on your asses here, so I apologize in advance.

    For those interested, Amazon will allow you to trade in old console games.

    No problem, I actually had no idea. Sounds like a cool idea.

    Unfortunately my brother is into the whole retro-gaming thing, he moved out recently and took all of the old 'carts with him.

    If they were still just gathering dust in the basement I'd probably send all of stuff to them. But a family member getting enjoyment out of them isn't too bad.

    Really, it's a no-brainer. Gift certificate at Gamestop where you can buy more games... or at Amazon where you can buy... well... anything.

    I guess I could see how that would work.

    I mean, this is coming from a guy that used the Joystick for just about all of the games back in the day. Even Doom and Dark Forces.

    Eh, I don't know. It was alright, and I can appreciate the time that went into it.

    But from the demo, it still looks like your standard FPS run-and-gun, with up gradable weapons.

    I might pick it up, if for no reason than to support other shops... but I need more than run-and-gun to keep me interested.
