  2. Max Payne 3

    All I needed to know about this game is that James McCaffrey won't be returning to voice Max Payne. Not that he didn't want to or was unavailable... but Rockstar turned him down and said they needed a more "mature" sounding voice. Fuck you, Rockstar. Fuck you.
  3. Demon's Souls

    Oh man. So far from the truth. It's a challenging 3rd-person Action-RPG from Atlus. It also has some very innovative online/co-op mechanics which cross over into the single-player portion of the game. It uses PSN in a really intuitive way. Instead of trying to explain, I should just point to some linkage: Anyhow, if you want an unforgiving, challenging, rewarding, old-school, and innovative RPG to play, I would recommend it.
  4. Wizaaaaaards!!

    It's true. If I had the money I'd probably love having a MacBook or whatever the latest and greatest Mac notebook is. From what I hear, Photoshop and video editing software is much better/easier to use on OSX than Windows. But since I can't afford one... fuck Apple!
  5. Same here, it's worked its way into my everyday vocabulary whereas I used to never say it. Ever. Thanks, 'thumbs!

    And here's something else related to this thread: Also, this is a good article:

  8. Wizaaaaaards!!

    Well this was unexpected. So, here's the short version of the story: My friend and my parents have been using this stuff to clean their organic fruits and vegetables for years now since it contains no chemicals like soap does. Anyhow, I never realized there was a WIZARD on the label. And by the way, that's my friends' desk. He has a Mac. I do not. I'm a PC enthusiast. Just wanted to clear the air there, it smelled a bit. Also, yes, that's a Gordon Freeman mousepad. [UPDATE!] I shit you not, THIS is what I just saw when I loaded up my TwitPic account login page. The advertisement is too coincidental.
  9. Then you ain't seen nothin' yet!
  10. If you thought the Saitek Cyborg was crazy...

    You make a good point. The thing that has me excited about it (if I had the money to invest in such a hobby-ist project) would be the possibilities for modding this thing. It's so open-ended it's almost like an "open-source" PC case.

    Ack! I can't deliver! I can't... I can't deliver. *sobs*
  12. The Dancing Thumb (aka: music recommendations)

    Yeah, Home Movies is hilarious and great, but Small really hit his stride with Metalocalypse. It's funny, epic, entertaining, and exciting. Can't say enough good things about it so I'll shut up now.
  13. The Dancing Thumb (aka: music recommendations)

    I got The Dethalbum II on Saturday, which was 3 days before release. It helps to have friends who work in record stores Anyhow, I might end up buying the vinyl tomorrow as well. The album is... how shall I put this.... FUCKING WIZARD! It's a very worthy sequel to my favorite album of all time. By the way, if you have no idea what I'm talking about () then do yourself a favor and look up "Dethklok" or "Metalocalypse."
  14. G20 - Police use tear gas,, sound cannons

    There was a crazy article on Slashdot the other day about how a DIY device can be made to combat these sound cannons. Something about a directional EMP thingy. I'll have to look into it. Kind of reminds me of TV-B-Gone but for use against fascist police tech!
  15. So.. Batman: Arkham Asylum

    That is probably the best thing ever said about Batman, ever.
  16. Idle Thumbs 44: Salacious Thumb

    Great episode as per usual guys, I loved the noir theatrics. I choked on my odious tea I was laughing so hard. Also, Batman has your number.
  17. Novint Falcon

    Yep, that's what sold me on it, too.
  18. So.. Batman: Arkham Asylum

    I finished the game and found all the collectibles/arkham tablet things. Very satisfying experience. I'm going to play through it again on the hardest difficulty and try to beat all the challenges next.
  19. That is absolutely ridiculous and hilarious. I can't really fathom how someone can mix up Spiderman and Batman. (Moved the below post from the DLC Thread because I think it's more relevant here)
  20. This episode was great. I haven't laughed that hard in a while.
  21. Brütal Legend overload...!

    Just downloaded the demo on PSN, won a code voucher from Tim Schafer on Twitter. I'll report my play experience! I'm expecting great things. UPDATE: I was correct in assuming that Brutal Legend is amazing. I don't want to give anything away. I'll just say that the menu is probably the best one I've ever seen in a game that I can remember, and the gameplay itself is really, really satisfying and fun. Watching gameplay videos/trailers of this game does not do it justice at all. Also, there's a few cleverly hidden Psychonauts references and the overall humor in the demo (which is sadly relatively short) is top notch.
  22. PSP

    I haven't used my PSP for a while, I think the last thing I actually played on it was LocoRoco2 (which was great btw). GTA: Chinatown Wars will probably have me glued to the thing, though. I'm happy they've decided to port it to PSP. They just released Firmware 3.01 this morning, which should fix those issues.
  23. Wizaaaaaards!!

    I like my Wizards drunk and angry. That isn't a pitcher of ale my friends, that's an ice-cold can of beer. Wait a minute... WTF?
  24. Down in the Zone (S.T.A.L.K.E.R.)

    I'm currently playing through the first S.T.A.L.K.E.R game for the very first time, with the "STALKER Complete" mod installed. I absolutely love it so far. Very atmospheric and mysterious. It also gives me a similar feeling to when I play Fallout 3. I take out a sniper rifle, stay low in the grass, and explore the zone. Good times.
  25. Idle Thumbs 42: The Dreamcast

    COOL COOL COOL! COOL TOOLS! Ah, nostalgia. Ye hath bested me again.
