Out of the Blue

I was alerted to the fact that although our forum registration process promises we're not asking for your email address in order to sell it or spam you, we have never added a formalized privacy policy here, so I dug up a template and drew one up. Feel free to take a look and provide any feedback you feel is appropriate: It seemed like a straightforward process, but, as the old saying goes, I am not a lawyer.

I dont own a Playstation3 but I was once considering buying it for just one game that I cant believe no one mentioned. Gran Turismo 5, or GT5.

You can get that with some of the DLC for under $20. Got mine for $15 a couple of weeks ago. Another reason I bought in when I did.

Ah, nm on Heavy Rain, I wanted it when it came out, didn't grab it for some reason. Can't remember if I played itbefore my ps3 died. Might have to check it out.

Grabbed that as well as the Ico/Shadow collection, as I never got to play those the first time.

Heavy Rain has a lot of problems but it is still unlike any game I've played before and is one of those games people should play once just to experience it.

Oops, didn't intend for that to be a recommendation on Heavy Rain, was just noting that I already had it. Although it was critically acclaimed it's not exactly a "traditional" game. I hope you enjoy it anyways.

No worries, I was thinking of a diff game when you mentioned it, went and watched some vids and recalled wanting it when it came out. Be a nice distraction loungin on the couch with the pups.

Everybody laughed at Musk when he said he would create the first private, commercially sucessful space carrier. They laughed at his Tesla motors company. Everyone keeps on laughing and yet this guy keeps innovating and making money in the process. They keep calling Steve Jobs the visionary of a century...compared to this guy he was a blind man lost in the woods....

I wrote a school essay report on Elon Musk, and he is indeed a great man and look forward to his innovations.

Happy birthday Cutter!

Batman, what about RDR?
Mine should be here sometime this week.
My collection will be:
Last Of Us, RDR, AC3 (in package), L.A. Noire, and Heavy Rain.
And the in the fall I'll get GTA5 and Beyond: Two Souls.

I completed it on 360 @ 100%...not sure i will hvae time to play everything by the time GTA5 and Watch Dogs comes out. Have all AC games on 360, LA Noire on PC,.....soooo...I dunno. The 6 God of War games are probably enough right now anyway. RDR cheapest is 20 online, would grab it for 10.

Ah, nm on Heavy Rain, I wanted it when it came out, didn't grab it for some reason. Can't remember if I played itbefore my ps3 died. Might have to check it out.

/Threw Heavy Rain in with my GTA4 Complete order. Hopefully get to play this weekend....

Happy Birthday Cutter! And I hope Fox is making another Predator film. The last one was way better than I thought it would be. And it had Adrian Brody as a tough guy! Weird.

PS3 came today - went through the top100 games no Amazon, only 4 interested me - are there any must haves or exclusives I should be looking at?

Right now: Injustice, GTA4+ Episodes (to complete my collection), Dark Souls, and Journey.

I've been playing the hell out of the Infamous set...

I hope I make it to 69 at least so I can cackle like a dirty old man every time I say it.
We all think on reaching an age in the distant future our reaction will be that of a 20 something, I'm thinking we will just be dazed & confused as the 20 somethings giggle on hearing you turnned 69.
Happy Birthday Cutter

Happy Birthday Cutter, you can have the free sample of Viagra I got at the doctor's officer on my last visit (it's missing one, but dear lord I could drive steel through titanium that night!).

Okay, I'm stealing that.

And happy birthday Cutter.

Well it's level-up day for me once more. Which leads me to wonder what max level is in this game. Definitely need to invest those skills points into wisdom and constitution.

Happy Birthday Cutter! Are you going to have celebratory English muffin pizzas?

Haha! Not, I think, today. It's hotter that 20 miles of Georgia asphalt out there right now and it's going to get hotter still. I may get up the energy to grill up a steak, but a nice cold salad and plenty of cold hydration is going to be the order of the day.
