My cat would totally do that if we had the DVD player set low enough for him to get at it. Cats are so fun.

By the way, anyone else here playing Fitocracy? It's a RL MMO where you get experience points, quests and achievements for working out. Was started by some ex-Everquest junkies. I did a gym session and cycled 12 miles yesterday, and reached level 3.

It's over at http://www.fitocracy.com/ . Currently in beta but folks here can hit me up via PM if you want an invite.

Also, that Huttball reminded me a lot of Unreal Tournament CTF, so maybe I'll just play that instead.

Eh, it looks kinda fun. However, on the Venn diagram showing Star Wars fans and MMO fans, the intersecting area contains some serious nutjobs. Something to think about when considering a quality online experience.

Then again, the population of Final Fantasy fans that are also MMO fans contains even more nutjobs, and I played that game for 6 years straight.

What an awful name. Pay some college kid $50 + some pot to come up with a better logo and title, geez.

Dude, it's a war! And it's ON YOUR FACE!! AWESOME!!!!111

Possibly the worst title of the year but not the worst of all time. That was Wargasm, which I was too embarrassed to purchase on account of its sorry-ass moniker.

If you'd pulled that stunt in my old neighborhood, some old crone would have rung your doorbell to bitch at you about "littering" within approximately 8.72 seconds.

Folks here in NYC toss all sorts of stuff and I've become pretty adept at grabbing it quick. DVD player, fur coat, desktop computer, swiss army knife, brand new UGG boots, brand new snow boots for the kids - I've pulled all those things out of the recycling or off the kerb in the last 12 months.

Actually, last month renters in my building moved out and dumped a full size mountain bike in the recycling (Iron Horse AT50 steelframe). All that was missing was the back shifter and cable.

I took it to the bike store for replacement and tuneup. $40 dollars later, I now ride it around Central Park on a regular basis to get my exercise.

'Hey, what if we mixed FFXII and WoW, and turned it into a new IP?'

It does look kind of appealing though - I could probably play it.

STOP CAMPING THE FUCKING RUNWAY.

Camping the runway with some shoulder fired rocket launchers is the best thing ever, don't ruin my fun!

Or just watching n00bs taking off from the aircraft carrier and crashing directly into the ocean. Never gets old.

If you don't have Fallout: New Vegas, you should have bought that instead.

Doh! Oh well, I guess I'll just have to pick that one up too. Decisions decisions.

I'm replaying Morrowind atm as well - seems to be Bethesda month here in Barad-Dur.

Hmm, I suspect this may get canceled. But then it may get revived.

'Project Osborn Reborn'. A headline for the ages.

Did anyone else here pick up Fallout3:GOTY edition last weekend, during the Quakecon sale? I had avoided it because I thought my machine (laptop) wouldn't run it, but turns out it's totally fine.

The full game plus all DLC for $15 is the sweetest deal I've had all year.

Interplay...haven't heard from them in a decade or so. Maybe a Free Space HD remake is next...
Already done:
http://scp.indiegames.us/

And still being updated to this day - very much worth playing.

Now, Freespace 3, on the other hand....

Was looking for some representative screenies of the current builds but had a hard time finding the real deal. Any help? Still have copies of FS1 and 2 lying around in my 'hall of fame' PC CD collection.

Thanks ^^

I have no idea what Ubisoft is trying to do. It's like they're actively trying to sabotage their PC division. They have draconian DRM, they delay PC releases (to their console counterparts), they refuse to give demos (even though they have them on console). I just...sincerely don't understand, both from a business standpoint or a gaming standpoint.

Simple explanation is simple. It's because they're retarded.

So the big red organ will be bigger, longer and uncut down under?

If lying correlates with developmental intelligence, my 6 year old daughter is on track to be a super genius.

Slightly undermined by her assumption that her parents believe any of the whoppers she comes up with.

Uh, and by the fact she still believes in Santa, the tooth fairy, and the easter bunny.

Beer brined chicken prior to grilling is my person favorite. I take a whole chicken cut into pieces. 2-3 bottles of beer depending on the size of you brine container. Generously salt all the chicken pieces lay in a Tupperware container. Poor 2-3 bottles of your favorite beer on the chicken covering all pieces completely. Brine for 2-3 hours, remove pat dry and rub with a rub of your choice. I prefer to use a rub with onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, kosher salt, cumin, cocoa and sugar.

Cook over a nice even charcoal fire and enjoy!

That sounds delicious. My only problem is that using good beer for anything other than inebriating oneself seems like a crime.

I guess it's all in the interest of science though. Kinda.

Anyone know if he is out of the hospital? Was a note here the other day he was sick or something?

Car accident, sadly. Haven't heard any updates since the original story broke.

Rowan Atkinson recovering after F1 McLaren crash

Apparently he was driving home after filming his latest movie, Johnny English, which is about an inept superspy. Latest update on him is:

"The official line from Rowan Atkinson’s agent, Mr Bennett-Jones, is that the actor is “shaken but not stirred” following the accident."

We approve.
