  1. Alright, so Ive been doing some home renovations, completely redid my living, torn out the carpet, put down wood flooring, repainted everything, replaced the outlets, the whole nine yards. So I am now putting my surround sound system and big screen TV to the new living room, and setting all the equipment up (my favorite part! seriously I love doing that stuff) So Ive been wanting to have the ability to play N64 games, NES, SNES, Genesis, all those on my TV out there since I am leaving my wii in the guest room. Problem is I don't have any of those systems anymore! So instead of going that route, I thought it would be simpler to use an old junk PC, set it up in the living room with the tv as the monitor and go and download a ton of roms and an emulator. Does anyone know of any good emulators? How about roms? I found www.virtualnes.com, and that is nice since its all java based, but I cant make it full screen, so that would kind of take away from what I am trying to do. Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe a different idea?
  2. Picked up Promethius and season 7 of It's Always Sunny. RUM HAM!!!!!!!!

      I thought MRuffs did an excellent job w/his brooding egghead bada$$ w/undertones of twisted humor & validated suspicions of all things government cheesey

      I actually like Ed Norton as Banner, based on looks alone, he in banner. He had banners attitude, I think Norton nailed it really. Bana was not so good, and Ruffalo still looks like a sopa opera star to me, not a guy who spent over half his life in books and labs.

      I liked the Incredible Hulk too and am a big fan of the Norton Banner. I also agree that Ruffalo looks like a soap opera star, which turned me off to him as Banner at first. But his portrayal really won me over once I saw Avengers. WHY is ther no word on a Ruffalo Hulk solo movie yet....????

      lol, and here I was thinking I could trade up maybe! I see people on their forums trade, so maybe I will go that route if I end up not liking them. I also came close to buying sundays lugi shirt

  6. you may want to play alittle on your own as i have a few characters that are 10+. As long as you are 5 levels behind or above you wont have a problem. i have a level 16 commando and a level 11 siren. Im lvl three, Im that big guy with the guns, Im still getting used to the RPG aspect of it, so I will probably hold it for two days before I return it monday night. So far so good!
  7. Ok I grabbed BL2 at redbox, so lets give this a whirl
  8. I could see getting borderlands 2, I want to rent it first on redbox though before I buy it, $60 is too much for a game I might think sucks. It's not the size of my memory stick that is a problem, it just said specifically if I want to play xbox games I need and xbox 360 harddrive. No big deal, I can buy one pretty cheap online, its just annoying is all. SA has been fun, but I can see where the game hasn't aged as well. Tonight I will be on for sure, maybe we can try and get some MK going... I've never played BF3, but I've heard good things. Whenever I play those kinda games, I find myself always wishing it were more like COD. I know, Im lame.
  9. Yeah dude I've seen you've been on that game like crazy, it looks like fun! I recently downloaded a few older games on my systems. I just DL Megaman 2 and StarFox on my Wii, both classics! Also downloaded Max Payne 1 on xbox (turns out you need a hardrive to play that, my memory stick isn't good enough even though it has already been downloaded) so that was a let down, but I did download Sonic Adventures and DigDug, so I've been busy with those.
  10. For sure buddy, and believe it or not, but they told me at GameStop (I still call it EB, anyone else remember when it was Electronics Boutique?) that I couldn't have any games you have, so there ya go! I will probably be turning in portal 2 soon, I think I've almost got it beat, been a great game, better then I thought it would be. Yeah I was really drunk that night too, I dunno why I wanted to play all the sudden, I woulda sucked, but now I will eat your soul! I saw a commercial for BL2, looks pretty cool, hopefully they will have it out on redbox and I'll give it a try before I buy. it's still called EB games here in Canada Aren't all your wheels square there? @smilepunch@ Good to know, now I just need to move to Canada so my wife doesnt look at me crazy when I say I wanna go to EB.
  11. I'll keep that in mind, maybe I will keep it for a while then, I tried to get my wife to play, and she likes the concept, but not her cup of tea. BestBuy has Call of Duty Black Ops on sale this week for $20 on both systems, I am gonna pick up black ops tonight!
  12. Yeah, they will joke about it for sure, and I am totally for people saying whatever they want, this is America first and foremost. I know it was a joke, a passive aggressive joke, not a good joke or really even funny either, but still a joke. I guess I find it offensive as a lover of jokes...
  13. seems to imply that this character is doing it, simply because he is Muslim. Ignorance usually speaks for itself, just seems and sounds a little racist. Oh geez I was wondering when this would happen...Well if they didn't do these things and kill innocents I guess people wouldn't say anything.. BUT Since a few extremists it will ruin for all.... Wondered when what would happen? In a thread to discuss a newly created Muslim GL, it was implied that this character, based on little to no info other then his religion, would be honor killing people with his ring and will crucify Christians. Obviously it was a joke, an unfunny joke, but a joke none the less. It's pretty much like saying "Hey, Moonkight wants to crucify Christians and doesn't tip" or "The new Allen Scott must be a pedophile because he is gay" Like I said, just ignorant really. BTW, I am a complete Republican, so please don't assume I am some bleeding heart, I'm far from it, just thought it sounded like a dumb thing to say, so I said so.
  14. I thought this was a thread to talk about this character, not what the Muslims are doing world wide, and again, it seems to be missed that it's not "the muslims" that are doing this, but infact a small, microscopic fraction of the overall Muslim faith. So I guess your answer is that is does not have anything to do with comics or this Muslim comic character. Just seems like the wording: seems to imply that this character is doing it, simply because he is Muslim. Ignorance usually speaks for itself, just seems and sounds a little racist.
  15. He is right there is this happening right now Ok, and what does that have to do with comics, or for that matter, a Muslim character? Would it be a fair for me to assume these Christians were over there, forcing people to become Christian or be murdered themselves? I mean, if we are going to assume extremist represent the majority instead of the minority, then you could pretty much accuse Christians of the same types of crimes, murdering in the name of their "correct" God. I'm not trying to make this a religious topic by any means, just seems pretty ignorant to say something like that.
  16. For sure buddy, and believe it or not, but they told me at GameStop (I still call it EB, anyone else remember when it was Electronics Boutique?) that I couldn't have any games you have, so there ya go! I will probably be turning in portal 2 soon, I think I've almost got it beat, been a great game, better then I thought it would be.

  17. .......really dude? You know I mentioned this to my wife the other day, who is half Arab (she doesn't claim to be Muslim at all since it's not her religion) and she liked the idea, she actually seemed interested and wanted to see what he looks like. When I first read this, I really had that eye-roll reaction that most probably had, since it feels like it has "stunt" written all over it, but after thinking about it for a few days after talking to my wife, I am glad for people who would be draw to this chartacter. I thought, what if I had a little RockThePlank, and he will be a quarter Arab, how would it be for him to be drawn to a character like that? Like he could see the TV and think "that's like me" So yeah, there are totally Arab people in this world, why not? Don't think I will be buying it since I don't really buy much comics anymore, but I hope it does well. Just don't be a boring GL, I can't stand John Stewart.
  18. Hey guys! Turned in a bunch of games over the weekend and got a few new games for the 360. I picked up Alien vs Pred (not too bad), Portal 2 (as good as everyone says it is), and Halo Reach. Im having a hard time breaking myself of the controls and the game play of Call of Duty to play Reach, but it's been fun, and a trip down memory lane to say the least (I used to tear Halo 1 and 2 up!) Speaking of trips down memory lane, I also downloaded Tony Hawk HD, and wow, I forgot all about those games. I used to love Tony Hawk back in high school, it's fun to get to play it now. It almost worth it just for the sound track. If it wasn't for Tony Hawk, I would have never have heard of such awesome bands like The Vandals and Goldfinger. If you ever played those games and are on the fence about this one, I recommend getting it. Anyone wanna play some 360?
  19. Let's go Vikings! Undefeated season, totally calling it now!

  20. Stopped at the Kangaroo gas station on my was back from lunch and got RE Racoon City on 360 from redbox. Anyone play this? I heard it got meh reviews, but should be good for a Friday night game. Anyone wanna play?
  21. Still havent made it out to TRU to look for a Space Ghost. My wallet is telling me to wait until next pay check!
  22. Do I get my nerd card revoked for never having seen Little Shop of Horrors?

  23. I downloaded Gothan Imposters on my PS3 a few weeks back and me and my wife took turns playing the free hour they give you and we both liked it. So last night I was downloading the trial on my xbox and my wife got excited thinking I had bought it, when she realized it was the demo on the 360 she called me a "cheap ass" I don't think she is too far off on that assumption.
  24. I feel like we played a few games of MK. Yeah I still have MK and also Street Fighter, I keep those games around because they are good when you have a group over and everyone can just pass a controller. Good solid games. I understand what you mean, the differences in the systems is pretty minor. It was kind of funny to see how out of date my 360 was. I spent probably an hour between updates and downloads just to play amazing spiderman (yeah, not so amazing...)
