but nin (SST):

It was mentioned earlier in the movie by Sigourney Weaver's character (Dr. Augustine) that there was a biological reason for the planet to be "knowledgable" in the Avatar universe. Not to say that it was explained well, but at least there was a sort-of explanation.

Seconded on Avatar in 3D - though I didn't see it in IMAX.

On a completely different note, having played through GTA IV for many hours (I've got the week off ), here are my thoughts:

-Graphical glitches every now and then (lack of water texture makes an ocean appear... well, mostly barren, with the odd flotsam and jetsam seemingly "floating" in midair.

-Monster of a resource hog. I'm running it at 1280x720 on a monitor capable of 1680x1050 max, with Geforce 7900GT-based card w/ 256MB(?) VRAM... Athlon 64 X2 2.1GHz, 2GB RAM. All graphical settings are set to their lowest possible ("1" or "Low"), apart from the resolution itself.

-Plot? Sorry, but I had -very- little idea of what the Jamaican guy (Little Jacob, I think) was saying when I ran with him on a few side missions... The main missions (Roman, possibly Vlad), however, are pretty interesting plot-wise, and I have gotten to a point where I seem to have made a crucial decision that might affect the narrative/ending/etc. Let's hope that it's more than just status quo by the end of the episode.

-Vehicle handling, once I compensate for framerate/sluggishness, is really not all that bad.

-The ambience does resmble New York or a composite of New York + other cities(?) and looks pretty realistic. Statue of Happiness = Statue of Liberty.

-I really wish I didn't have to sign into two different accounts and have those run in the background as a -requirement- to multiplay, -on top of- running Steam...

-...but I do appreciate that I can upgrade/expand my PC beyond the capabilities of the XBOX360 if I have/need to.

-Why can I still run Crysis at medium settings and full resolution (1680x1050) and have barely a performance hit when compared to my old monitor (1024x768 max)???

-Despite all my criticisms, the game definitely is fun.

-Windows Live, work in-game, dammit! I want to sign in and do a bit of multiplayer!

Ahem.

Just bought GTA IV off Steam. Removed a couple of mods/games from the compy to make room (yes, the HDD is that full).

Well, I double-click GTA IV on the Steam games list aaaand.... "The Steam servers are currently too busy to handle your request. Please try again in a few minutes."

Okay, so I removed Counter-Strike, and double-clicked to reinstall that. No error/warning message there as it starts re-downloading...

Is GTA IV being slammed on Steam?

And yeah, I know I've seen the warnings about performance issues and all that...

EDIT: Duh, Merry Christmas! (Went to visit my grandmother's grave - her bday's on the 24th.)

EDIT2: Never mind, GTAIV's coming down the pipe now...

EDIT3: Holiday Star Wars video - I have no words to describe the reaction that I had to that... but it was "inexplicably bad".

Actually (the House MD game) reminds me a little bit of the film rendition of "A Scanner Darkly".

Perhaps it's an issue of neutrality, for example an advertiser might only agree to give them money if the article about them made them sound better or something.

I would have to agree with Nerf2009. Impartiality is important. When corporate interests enter the picture, that impartiality cannot exist.

Holy fuck! Do you remember the first Internets?

My first experience with teh Interwebs was over a 2400 baud (dialup) modem using AOL 2.0 or some odd. Contributed and downloaded a handful of MIDI files (mostly remakes of Information Society and other songs, some originals) during my dialup days.

To Cutter: I don't mean to say that any disorder should be used as an excuse for a crime committed, if the person is fully aware of his or her actions. At the very least it may provide insight as a possible factor.

And to Bats... sorry, but there really are people who do have (I'm not going to use the word "suffer" necessarily) Aspergers or some form of autism,, though I may not be one of them; however, yes, it is considered to be a high-level form of autism, which itself can be mild or severe. Again, in no way am I saying that, at least in this circumstance, it should be used to justify this person's behavior, but can explain it somewhat though not entirely (if true).

My sister had thought this year perhaps that I had Aspergers. This, after she attended a benefit banquet for an Aspergers association.

Meh.

Same here too, Hals... sorry to hear.

EDIT: 10 days, Blue? Don't you mean 12? Or am I missing something...?

I don't know how easy it would be to confuse "kxmode" with "Dan =0)", nin.

EDIT: And, Richard Cheese rules. I have a few of his albums, somewhere...

If what Atomic is seeing is what I'd been seeing at times, it's one of those "stay-at-home mom makes $77/hr!" type ads kinda like the one explained about here: http://www.prosperly.com/2009/make-money-posting-links-on-google-is-a-scam/
