  1. That being said, the Assassin's Creed series sounds like it'll be great. Thanks for the recommendation.
  2. It's sort of strange. Given the choice in games that offer at least some facet of moral freedom, I'll always opt to play the role of the good guy. It doesn't necessarily matter if I will or won't maul an entire city of civilians; I just want to know that I can. Games that force me from point A to point B always get on my nerves. That's why I like the GTA series and Skyrim so much. They're pretty much glorified sandboxes that allow free reign (to an extent).
  3. Good call. (And, perhaps ironically, I repped you for it.) As a relative newcomer to actually posting on the site, I don't really understand the rep system, and also the categories that show up on each person's profile. How did it work before?
  4. Nice. It sounds like something I would dig. I like games that allow at least some amount of freedom as far as how I choose to play.
  5. How about a trophy system? You could give trophies for "achievements" like POTW, post counts, dissenting opinions, times mentioning the word "beast," etc.
  6. Also, what's up with the Facebook bot (if that's what it is) that keeps showing up everywhere? 6 user(s) are reading this topic 0 members, 4 guests, 1 anonymous users Facebook I've been posting sexy robot pictures in the Lounge to keep it happy...just in case it's a Skynet thing.
  7. I nominate this for Post of the Week. Can I do that yet?
  8. I love the idea of a fully-functional arcade with a working scoring system. I'd love to prove how much less of a life I have than everyone else. It would also be nice for those lazy Sunday afternoons when the Jets are getting blown out and I want to distance myself a bit. POTW would be cool.
  9. I hadn't heard about EarthBound before. I missed a lot of the SNES stuff the first time around. After looking it up, it sounds awesome. I'm gonna have to search that one out.
  10. What's the gameplay like on Assassin's Creed? It looks cool, and I know I'll probably like it. Is it mostly stealth (that's usually fun at first, but eventually gets lame), and are there character-building tweaks like an RPG? Should I start with the first one, or skip it and pick up the sequel?
  11. Oh yeah, I forgot about Assassin's Creed. Haven't played any of those yet. Good call.
  12. If all else fails I can always go back to Skyrim:
  13. That being said, Max Payne 3 has been getting good reviews.
  14. I'm treading lightly with the new releases. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City looked pretty cool but I heard it sucked.
  15. Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl ring is being auctioned by his son PUBLISHED 8 hours and 33 minutes ago LAST UPDATED 7 hours and 55 minutes ago Tweet Staff reportSporting News Text sizeAAA It turns out Lawrence Taylor’s son is apparently selling one of LT's Super Bowl rings—not Taylor himself—according to a report by FOX Sport’s Jay Glazer. On Thursday, it was reported that Taylor was auctioning off his Super Bowl XXV ring. But Glazer tweeted Friday that Taylor had contacted him to say he wasn’t aware the ring was up for sale. An auction for one of Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl rings ends Saturday. (AP Photo) Glazer reported that Taylor had given his Super Bowl rings to his son. Taylor’s XXV ring is being auctioned at SCP Auctions.com. As of Friday morning, the highest bid was $89,568, NFL.com reported. The estimated value of the ring is $75,000-$100,000. The ring features two football-shaped diamonds on the face, surrounded by 17 smaller diamonds. The name "Taylor" is on the left shank above a Giants helmet and No. 56. The ring also includes a notarized letter of authenticity from Taylor. The bidding on the ring ends Saturday. Taylor has endured financial, legal and personal problems since retiring in 1994. ...there's more to this, obviously. That being said, I would guess that Namath's ring is probably the most valuable of any NFL ring. 1-2 million easy. Hell, I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I had the funds.
  16. Just throwing these out there for reference/fapping purposes: Beadle: Andrews: Charissa Thompson (frequent fill-in): Jenny V: And there's always Ines/Jenn
  17. Before I saw it again recently, I had forgotten how many really good actors were in Boogie Nights before they hit it big. John C. Reilly, Don Cheadle, William H. Macy, Philip Seymour Hoffman; the list goes on and on. Cast Mark Wahlberg as Eddie Adams ("Dirk Diggler") Burt Reynolds as Jack Horner Julianne Moore as "Amber Waves" Heather Graham as Brandi ("Rollergirl") John C. Reilly as Reed Rothchild Don Cheadle as Buck Swope Nicole Ari Parker as Becky Barnett William H. Macy as "Little" Bill Thompson Nina Hartley as "Little" Bill's wife Thomas Jane as Todd Parker Philip Seymour Hoffman as Scotty J. Melora Walters as Jessie St. Vincent Robert Ridgely as Colonel James Philip Baker Hall as Floyd Gondolli Michael Jace as Jerome Alfred Molina as Rahad Jackson Luis Guzmán as Maurice Rodriguez Ricky Jay as Kurt Longjohn Joanna Gleason as Dirk's mother Laurel Holloman as Sheryl Lynn Michael Penn as Nick Robert Downey Sr. as Burt John Doe as Amber's ex-husband
  18. Yeah, Boogie Nights is great. I just watched it again a few weeks ago. Have you seen Wonderland with Val Kilmer? It went a lot deeper into the supposed events surrounding the murders. Pretty good movie.
  19. Given the choice, I probably would have opted for a PS3. I played the hell outta some PS and PS2; never had the original Xbox. The 360 was a gift, but I figured it didn't matter for the most part since games are usually available for both. It's been an adjustment process, since I can find the "Circle" and "Square" buttons in my sleep, but I still catch myself having to glance down sometimes to see where in the hell "B" is. I am kind of bummed that I won't be able to play the Uncharted series. Those games look awesome.
  20. I've heard good things about Resident Evil 5 (I loved Resident Evil 4) and Alan Wake:
  21. I played through Super Mario RPG. Great game; it surpassed my expectations. I never tried Megaman X; my attention has gone in and out of the franchise since the first one on the NES. They're always maddeningly difficult. I loved Megaman Legends on the PS, though. And Paperboy is one of the best games ever. I've seen this screen more times than I'd like to count:
  22. I remember playing the original Gran Turismo on the PS. I'm not much for racing games, but I loved it because the graphics were so sweet.
