Out of the Blue

Wow!

It's probably pretty easy to guess how ecstatic I am over the Giants' performance yesterday. The word proud doesn't seem to do justice to how I feel about this team for overcoming a disastrous 0-2 start to end up knocking off a team that had already been immortalized by so many. Eli played flawlessly, the offensive line was stalwart, the pass rush was ferocious, and the big plays were, well, big. Oh hell, either you saw the game already or you don't really care, but I'm walking on air right now.

Buuullshit, Doritos rat was the best.

I don't know if that one was my fav or the e-trade baby....both hilarious the first time around...

/edit: I can say this - the Puppy Bowl was more exciting to watch this year than the commercials....very poor commercials this year. Pretty bad showing for 100+ million viewers.

The FedX(pigeons) commercial was the best of the bunch, I liked the screaming squirrel tire commercial too.

Yeah, that'll be a SB highlight forever. Definitely one of the top 5 plays ever.

Amazing how bad most of the SB ads were this year. The Will Ferrel ad was funny, film looks funny. And I hadn't heard of Sandler's new film before, looks prety damn funny. The Timberlake one was funny too.

Heh, just playing through the tutorials I can already tell that they barely scratch the surface. It's probably going to take me a few games against an easy AI just to get settled in.

Oh the horror of it all.


So far, I'm impressed. My only gripe is I wish the explosions were bigger.

Just got home, and Sins is up on SDC. Downloading now. Go faster! Edit: That isn't to say that I'm getting crappy speeds; it's actually got my 5MBit cable maxed.

Ditto for me. How big did the dl turn out to be? Trying to estimate based on the progress bar is difficult.

And what's ICO?

IronClad Online. It's their game lobby. It does not share your normal Stardock account, it's entirely seperate (and in a strange bit of oversight by Stardock it doesn't just pull in the CD Key from SDC).

Back to the tutorial. I had to quit (I would not recommend beginning your siege when it tells you to--wait until after you've taken out that annoying gauss cannon.)

Let me know if you can play, or if we have to wait until tomorrow...

Just had it running. I just popped back out to grab the CD Key off of my email so that I can create an ICO account, then it's off to the tutorials.

If you've got a good rig, check the effects settings as they are a bit tame by default.

Quad core, 4 gig of ram, 8800GTX.

And what's ICO?

Damn, I want to go now!

Why is everyone talking about football? Was there some big game yesterday or something?

Dude! C'mon. There was a Super Ball yesterday! The New England Patricks versus the New Jersey Giants. I believe it was a tie.

Manning MVP? I am not a football fan, hockeys my sport and I only watch the superbowl and grey cup, maybe I dont what I'm talking about but the Giants D won that game and the MVP should have gone to someone there. That was a great game, I was hopeing that the Pats would get a FG at the end there and put it into OT.

The new 360's have a standard DVI jack, so you don't need their cable if it doesn't come with one. Any DVI cable should do.

Got mixed in with the Super Bowl yesterday - can anyone assist with my 360 questions?


Forgot to say - I went looking for an xbox360....none found at Best Buys that I went to. Only the arcade versions....bummer. This might be harder than I thought...anyone been to the store lately? Are they that hard to find?

Tons of PS3s out there. heheheheh

/edit: afterthought: I was looking at all of the accessories for the 360 - and I saw an S Video and a VGA cable, is there a DVI cable so I can use my new Samsung monitor via DVI rather than VGA - or is it a mute point?

What other things do I want to look for?

/edit2: You know what - screw it - other stores have the 360 - I think I will order my GTA4 SE through BB using my gift cards, then I can get the 360 where I can find one.......
