Sometimes I love Firefox, and other times I want to beat the fucking shit out of the devs...
Yeah. I raised an issue or two in bugzilla, and got the "we're not fixing it" response. I wanted to be able to set which search plug-ins got installed by default (just out of the 8 or 9 it comes with, not out of ALL of them). Got the "custom or advanced install options confuse users, we don't want to do that" response. Also wanted deleted search plug-ins to STAY deleted if I updated, rather than reinstalling themselves or overwriting affiliate links. No dice there either.

Try to help in whatever way you can and get turned off by the 'community'.

Given how slow and unreliable IR is, I'd say it's a safe bet that it's radio based (like all the good wireless controllers nowadays), so it doesn't need LoS.
I dunno, that blackness on the front ( http://money.cnn.com/2005/09/15/commentary/game_over/revolution/nintendo_control.jpg ) sure looks like IR to me...

I think some of you might re-consider your positions after you see the potential for lightsaber fights, football throwing, FPS games (this is a really minor one, but it makes the revolution the best console platform for them), stick-control in hockey games.
Can't see trying to play madden with that. Be claiming tuck rule every time ya twitch; be impossible to heave the ball properly, playing defense would be a nightmare (which jiggle is tackle, which one is strip the ball), if I tilt downward do I pick up speed since i'm running 'downhill. Madden (or whatever football) be some fumbley... hockey be tricky too - when does it know if I'm passing or shooting, how the heck would one manually goaltend, etc etc

I do think it would be nice for RPGs like old school FF stuff, perhaps. Anything fast paced? Like a shooter or sports game or even a fighting game? hmmm, I dunno... definite complication through simplification though.

You sure they're not playing in the Meadowlands, home of the Jets? wouldn't that be nuetral turf?
yes, I know the difference in that
Saint's will probably get the pick of the schedule next year (though not the draft, a few teams will be lower than them), not to fret. And from what I saw, it's not going to benefit the Giants much anyways - and the lines are just barely giving NYG the home 3 point preference...

I'll wait for the release. Only a couple more months. Should be good though, even the PA folks liked it.

FWIW, I believe I have all the above on my XP:MCE box (and yes, it has a remote for easy of use and the quality is very nice). With multiple tuners in the one box. Don't forget the home built options like MediaPC or whatever either...

no more nights of football for me, please.

Sunday + monday is good. The odd weird thursday game (US thxgiving, openers, etc.) and the odd xmas schedules make those games special events. Plus what's the point of breaking for highlights if they're two days old and the cutting to another game if yours ends early wouldn't be as much of an option either.

Staggering the schedule as it is can already give some teams an advantage as teams are afforded more/less practice or healing time, etc etc. With the complexity, intensity and physical nature of this game, you'd really make creative scheduling an advantage from year to year. Not like college, of course, where a team might play 7 games at home against sucky teams just to boost their record and only play 4 times on the road.

Moving the games around would open the door to more games, and I don't want the NFL to go anywhere near the other so-called major sports, where you can lose 60 games and still make the playoffs... Wrap up shows would be gone. The drama on final day(s) would be reduced - as a GB fan I recall one such day nailbiting while watching the tickers until arizona played spoiler and won over the vikes, letting GB win the division title...

With Sunday Ticket (I don't have it, though my cable co. offers it), people can see any game anyways...

Yeah, brilliant scores. I bought a couple of Ennio Morricone complication CDs a while back - Chi Mai has got to be one of the most beautiful pieces of music I've ever heard, the guy's a genius.
Once upon a time in the west. Great film, great music.

The NHLPA has a peculiar rule regarding people cannot be depicted in videogames as NHL players until they set foot on the ice - so why not wait a month or so and bundle this with a roster (read: crosby) update...

On the flip side of things, I would say the ESRB ratings are essentiall a sham. Ratings are a bit wishy-washy for movies and CDs, but I have seen both of those rating systems enforced far, far more than the ESRB's system.
Our province adopted an obscenely (haha) detailed video game rating law - check it out:
http://www.gov.ns.ca/aga/videoguides.HTM

as if.

What site(s) have the pre-order program? I've searched and come up with nothing.
Yes. I agree. I asked and the thread spiralled into slagging the unreleased game. sent an email to amazon asking them about it, but haven't seen anything online yet either. Not a B&Mortar fan...

And FWIW, i really hope they make some sort of in-game function to mail out the games from in game. I always thought the PBEM interface (read: none) was pretty crappy.
I suppose something in game would be handy, but I've been playing for two years smackin' PBEM saves in emails and have grown so accustomed to it I haven't found it to be a bother. Plus lets one strategize a bit via email, since the in-game chat doesn't want to work for PBEM games. I just don't want them to get rid of it entirely, there's really no decent PBEM games out there for folks in time zones not conducive to playing online...

That link made me think of the episode of The Simpsons with the the two area codes when members of New Springfield dam the river and the people of Olde Springfield find gold in the riverbed. Kent Brockman is reporting about it on the evening news and thanks the residents of New Springfield for allowing the people of Olde Springfield to take "golden showers". The funniest part is that you hear the off camera people laughing, and Brockman can't figure out why.
That episode will be on FOX (Rochester) tonight, btw; not sure if your nick means you're in that corner of the states...

Yes back in July, they had annouced the released date was already set to 11/15. So this isn't new.
yeah it is; pushes it up by a bit over 2 weeks. The Fiscal 2005 for Take 2 ends October 31 2005, not at the end of the calendar year.

Looking forward to it; really hoping they keep the Play-By-Email...
