8. LotRO Achievements Jun 9, 2008, 13:30 TorchMaster
 
Achievements in LotRO, called Deeds, seem to be of the same types as these. They reward you with either a displayable title for your character, such as "Goblin-Cleaver" for x number kills, or a Trait, such as "Fortitude", which provides a small buff to your attributes. Equipment is not provided for these accomplishments. It's just a means to (slightly) differentiate yourself.

'Spaghetti with tuna sauce' reminds me of how my college roommate used to make lasagna.

Lasagna:
Prepare one box macaroni and cheese.
Mix in one can of tuna fish.
Enjoy! ?

A very interesting idea. I wish them luck. It appears that play is only allowed from within the EU at the moment.

R.I.P Warhammer Online... Regardless, the EA purchase had already lowered my expections. It's not likely that layoffs by EA's crack management team will help, but sometimes 'trimming the fat' isn't a bad thing.

1992 DIRECTOR'S CUT
The Director's Cut omits Deckard's voiceover narration and removes the "happy ending" finale. It adds the famously-controversial "unicorn" sequence, a vision that Deckard has which suggests that he, too, may be a replicant.


Sorry all, I was confused which version was which. The Director's cut was definitely superior. So, I guess we can assume that the "Final Cut" will go the way of the previous director's cut release.

I've also been looking for a new game and almost bought Supreme Commander, but I found too many mixed reviews and RTS is feeling stale for me. (I just finished Company of Heroes single-player and have played the hell out of WH40K Dawn of War.)

Civ4 is a better game than GalCiv2 if you are new to the 4x genre. It's more accessible and has a better help system. GalCiv is just such a better game though; each session has a different feel and progresses unpredictably. With that said, I did just get the Civ4 expansion. We'll see if that freshens things up.

6. Blade Runner Jul 27, 2007, 11:33 TorchMaster
 
The new Blade Runner edition sounds cool, but the question is what ending are they going to use? Personally, I preferred the theatrical cut to the director's cut ending.

GalCiv2 is a great game, vastly superior to Civ4. I am looking forward to trying out the new Civ4 expansion -- it sounds like they improved some of the shortcomings.

Well, It is a safe bet that your poopies stunk really bad before, something is just different now and now you are smelling it.

It sounds like you are saying thay maybe my poops didn't change, but perhaps my sense of smell or awareness of my poops changed. I guess it is possible, but I just don't remember it being this consistently nasty.

Sorry for the poop talk. Here's a link to Sarah Silverman's "Poop Song": http://ccinsider.comedycentral.com/cc_insider/2007/06/kanye_west_sing.html

Seriously I'm not really obsessed with BMs.

I was having an acid reflux problem and started taking Prolosec OTC daily about six months ago. It has helped a lot.

But I think the Prilosec has had a side-effect. Since this are the internets tube, I'll share -- My dumps always stink terribly now. Has anyone else experience this effect? (besides from eating the BlueChili)

Well, I went out for ribs on Saturday and what I got was tough and completely without flavor.

Sometimes when you want something done right, you've got to do it yourself.

I tried going to the local Tony Roma's Ribs. There was a sign on the door that they were under foreclosure. Not sure if the chain is in trouble or just this particular franchise. I've never eaten there so I can't comment to their quality.

First baby born from egg matured in lab and frozen

The way I read the headline is that a human was reared in a labatory to post-pubescense and then frozen. Perhaps a solution to overpopulation?

Yeah, Mr. Stubbs is my favorite brand-name barbeque sauce too. It has that good, measured, spicy kick. I'll have to try the marinade.

Coincidentally, Mr. Stubbs is what my girlfriend calls me -- da da dum.

4. Re: ps3 Feb 28, 2007, 11:31 TorchMaster
 
It seems clear this statement is meant to create hype about the PS3 when there is no other good news. To me it demonstrates that launch day shortages were part of the marketing strategy and not simply woeful execution. Many already thought this was the case but Sony's denials were at least plausible. Now the truth is clear. (I wonder if this helps that idiot Boston mayor's case about the riot?)

The 'bad' Yahoo update was released on Friday. One of the 'bad' things it did was take away any option for a custom install. It installed all components and changed all previously set preferences to the Yahoo-desired default. Just an all-around total SNAFU.

Bad Yahoo! Goodbye, Yahoo.
