    Default What's messing with your Groove?

    Hazir made one, I'll make the other.

    Secret Of Mana is unfairly difficult.
    And the weather is terrible.
    I enjoy blank walls.

    I'd really love to know why some people who live in my house think socks are something worth arguing over. It's not like there is only one pair or anything.

    "Oh my God!"
    "What?"
    "You have a hole in your sock!"
    "Blimey, so I do!"
    "...."
    "...."
    "Aren't you going yo throw those out?"
    "Why?"
    "It looks horrible!"
    "That's what shoes are for, to cover the holes in my socks"
    "Why don't you buy new ones?"
    "Because I'm not bothered by holes in my socks"
    "I am!"
    "So buy me new ones."
    "They're not my socks"
    "But you're the one who is bothered by it"
    "Of course I am, and you should to"
    Etcetera, etcetera.

    Ziggy - I've had the same discussion, only to then find if i do buy new socks, she'll wear them as they are "more comfortable even though they are to small".

    Can't win.

    It disturbs me more than you can possibly know to think that adults think socks are worth talking about.

    Unless they are fuzzy.

    And rainbow striped.

    No. Black socks with increased airiness.

    I've had many edifying and soul-searching discussions about socks with Steely
    In the future, the Berlin wall will be a mile high, and made of steel. You too will be made to crawl, to lick children's blood from jackboots. There will be no creativity, only productivity. Instead of love there will be fear and distrust, instead of surrender there will be submission. Contact will be replaced with isolation, and joy with shame. Hope will cease to exist as a concept. The Earth will be covered with steel and concrete. There will be an electronic policeman in every head. Your children will be born in chains, live only to serve, and die in anguish and ignorance.
    The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.

    On that note, yesterday i actually spent 4 hours of my life wearing odd trainers/sneakers.

    Not only did i roam friends houses without realising but i also went shopping and to the gym, again, without noticing.

    Yeah that kinda off blue/green dark aqua color that used to be in Classic Blue? I hate it, so its dead...#@%*ing dead...

    ...if you really liked it, I'm sorry that I said its dead then. Its actually napping. It only wakes up when you aren't around because it doesn't like you. Now do you wish it was dead?

    Yes...?

    Good because I killed it.

    It's really hard to be both drunk and dead when I keep receiving emails about this goddamn forum.

    There are a few duplicates in the system right now. I'll go through and keep the duplicates from showing up in the list.

    Debating whether to get the Mass Effect 2 Collector's Edition now, which is $70 plus tax, or just get the regular version later which will be $50 or less depending on how long I wait. However, once the CE is sold out, thats it, and unless they plan to keep producing it I don't see its availability lasting past the end of January, or even the end of the week...pretty deadlocked:

    Pro-Buying:
    1) Liked ME1 and ME2 got good reviews on Ars
    2) CE will be sold out quickly. Special metal case + artbook + included DLC (don't really care about the other stuff) is exclusive to the CE.

    Cons-Buying:
    1) I have the vB theme to finish, Assassin's Creed 2 to finish (although I already watched both my GF and my brother play through it, so its losing intrigue), Dead Space not even started, a historical novel that I haven't even started reading, Hellboy Volume 1 to finish reading, and three 8+ hour digital art training DVD's still unwatched, plus numerous personal projects still all in the concepting phase, but execution unstarted.
    2) The artbook is only 48 pages, the metal case of ephemeral interest and intrigue, and the damn thing is $70 plus tax. Same game experience waiting a few months/year to buy the standard edition for much less.

    You've got a lot on your plate, and once you get into ME2, you know you won't stop for quite some time. I'd say finish what you've already got going and wait for ME2 to go on sale somewhere.

    Also heard from someone else who got the CE that the artbook was nothing special, did not purchase...

    Yeah, that seems like one of those things they'd throw in there in attempt to justify a higher price, "But look, it has multiple other things!" Smart choice.

    I've gotten other Collector's Edition games before, and I'm not liking the trend towards downloadable content being a bonus item...which is what most of the Mass Effect 2 bonus content is. To me, a Collector's Edition has to be just that...collectable...

    Edit: I mean the Fallout 3 CE came in a metal lunch box, with a bobble-head, bonus DVD, and a mini-art book.
