I love Journeyman. I keep waiting for Pullo to show up. Or for Vorenus to go back to 50 B.C. or so.

14. Commodore 64 game Nov 14, 2007, 22:20 maplebob
Did anyone play the Commodore 64 Ghostbusters game? I thought it sucked at first but it was kind of fun once the game got going.

On Bones yesterday they had a geek get murdered in 1987 over a 1987 video game that would have had all the bells and whistles of Doom on a Commodore 64. Pretty laughable really. Probably the Commodore 64 killed him for trying to run a game like that on it.

Just don't buy it. I haven't bought a Valve game since I pre-ordered Half-Life 2 and a year later I find out I have to have this stupid Steam thing just to play the game.

If someone does business in a way you don't like, don't do business with them.

Valve is scum. I don't patronize them.

16. TFD Patch? Oct 2, 2007, 21:06 maplebob
Do they ever finish patching TFD? Most of the games worked for me except Red Alert 2 which kept halting for a moment making it pretty unplayable.

I was planning on not buying any more C&C games until the TSD bundle.

Also, I didn't like Generals all that much and I don't think I ever finished playing it. What did others think of Generals? I don't know what I didn't like about it, it just wasn't as fun as the other games.

Why don't they do one based on something good, like Parsifal. Or The Ring Cycle?

If you use code, you follow the license. It's not that hard.

I can't even make sense of the licenses in most cases, let alone make the software work in linux.

11. Re: Nice Jun 18, 2007, 23:56 maplebob
I've not been playing q4 as much as I thought I might but I do intend to play it. I'm pleasantly surprised id is patching Quake 4 considering that the public reception to Q4 seems tepid, at best.

I bought the DVD collector's edition and I ended up playing the Quake 2 games more then Quake 4. Q4 is so scripted and the monsters just jump out and then die, they don't seem as interesting as Q2.

21. The Tudors Jun 11, 2007, 20:33 maplebob
I thought the season finale of the Tudors was pretty good. Order is breaking down from the top. Mild spoiler alert: I thought Wolsey's end was rather sad and shocking.

In some ways the set up for the coming chaos reminds me of Re-Animator.

Next they'll be evacuating a rock concert, mistaking dry ice for a fire.

I like the one from, I think 1999, with Chris Lambert. That one's the best because it has an immortal in it. Well, I haven't seen the 2005 yet. The Sci-Fi version wasn't bad.

25. Re: The bible... May 18, 2007, 19:20 maplebob
This same sub-group started protesting a comic book store because they realized how scantily-clad the women were in the comic books how how hidden on a 7-foot shelf behind the register was a completely hidden small stack of "skin magazines" that they sold to adults upon verification. But they also put up fliers about the comics themselves.

I don't know if it has anything to do with religion. It just seems that zany human beings feel they have to protest something, somewhere, sometime.

Comic books were a major item of protest back in the 1950's but then most people just felt that looked silly and moved onto something else while the more zealous among them went on to protest fluoride in the drinking water.

I read a story about a lady protesting some PBS penguin because it's name is Pingo, or something like that. Apparently "Pingo" (or something like that) is slang for the dangly bits of the male genitalia in some language. Yet nobody protested Dick Armey about his name, at least not that I can remember. Go figure.

Some people who read the bible protest comic books and some people who read comic books protest the bible. But I haven't heard about anybody protesting a comic book based on the bible, so maybe that's the way to go.

I remember when I was growing up, I was raised Catholic and I chose St. Francis for my confirmation saint after reading the Marvel Comics adaption of his life.

Still, other bible characters could make super heroes, like Elisha and Elijah, like with all that whirl wind stuff and the summoning of the bear.

Oh, and Joshua who stopped the sun and the moon. That would translate well, maybe. Maybe NBC makes it into episodes of Heroes, or maybe they already have. I don't know I couldn't get into that show.

And continuing on about my distaste for gun bunnies and their support for one of the major things wrong with the United States:

I can't figure out what you're trying to say here but you know there are other countries? Mexico seems to be missing about 1/10th of it's population so I'm sure they would welcome you with open tortillas.

I really hope DX3 goes back to the roots of what made DX such a great game. I mean the original DX was so shockingly good, no game has come close since.
