  1. Thanks everyone! Yes, I'm still around...kind of a lurker...sort of...I guess.
  2. Phased plasma rifle in the 40-watt range. Sorry...couldn't resist...and surprised nobody said that yet...some may recognize the movie quote...
  3. "In the February 2008 issue of Electronic Gaming Monthly, Editor-in-Chief Dan “Shoe” Hsu asserted that Ubisoft had ceased to provide all Ubisoft titles to the EGM for any coverage purposes as a result of prior critical previews and negative reviews."
  4. Myspace and Facebook... I use Twitteriffic to access Twitter. Amazon Kindle for iPhone is pretty cool. Bing is good. Dragon lets you talk in the phone...and then send it to a text or to the clipboard which is very handy. Gamefly's app provides daily gaming news which is cool. Rocky is currently kicking my butt on the free chess game. (Rocky...I think I have Knocking...)
  5. ...because the media is biased and evil...I thought you knew that. You get to see what they want you to see...not what's important or true.
  6. OMG...that was amazing!!! Red vs Blue...eat your heart out...
  7. Doesn't this come out like the 29th of March...I think this is the game my son wants for his birthday... I'm a Rock Band junkie...I can't lie... Guitar Hero...meh...it's okay I guess.

    Halo Wars

    I like Halo but I hate RTS games...so I was very skeptical about playing it on a console...but surprisingly...it's pretty decent. It's no Wii Fitness...but it's okay. If you're not a Halo fan or RTS fan...I'd pass.
  9. Yeah...I agree with those points... I just think the game would've been more fun without the fancy suits and sci-fi theme...the few places where you encounter the regular KPA soldiers were always my favorite... Still a great game...(that I really need to finish).
  10. Thanks for the clarification. I ran into 3 or 4 regular Army folks recently that had the Ranger tab and never quite understood why they were wearing it. One of them was a COL so I never got to talk to him about it...but one was a MAJ and he almost seemed embarrassed by it and didn't really say much. Now I know... ...and knowing is half the battle.
  11. The audio/visual effects of this game have to be the very best I've ever seen... I'm currently playing thru it and Far Cry 2 (I rotate) at the same time...both are stunning but I think Warhead gets the final nod. I especially liked the sequence where all the Navy ships were frozen. That was pretty neat. Now if only it were more of a realistic tac-sim...
  12. All of my personal items made it home...including the laptop. Surprisingly...it still works.
  13. As long as you don't see this guy in line...you should be okay...
  14. with all those goodies...is there any room left for the kitchen sink?
  15. I wouldn't recommend joining any form of military service (reserves or National Guard, for example) just to make some college money...unless of course you are fully prepared to be deployed. I don't know how many people I ran into who had the attitude of, "I didn't sign up to deploy...I just wanted to go to college." Who wouldn't want free money to go to college but it doesn't work that way. There are a significant amount of reserve and National Guard forces deployed right now...something to think about. I hear the Navy is always looking for some new recruits...
  16. As far as recommendations...I guess it depends on what you're looking for...but here is a link to some pretty cool freeware, many of which I use and would recommend.
  17. if he can boot from a CD...he could probably also try the Windows XP repair function...(if he can get the CD from someone). Like what Firefly said...I would use Ubuntu and do that...the interface to set partitions and such is super easy and I've never had it mess up my Windows partition. Since he can access the drive at the command prompt...I would think he should be able to recover the hdd...it just may take some time and effort.

    Grid Racing

    Oh I'm using force alright...the chrome horn...

    Grid Racing

    Sweet... I've gotta find the full version first and work out the force feedback issue...can't seem to get it to work in the demo... oh and then there is the problem of driving...I can't seem to make it a lap without ramming slower traffic...but I'm getting better.

    Grid Racing

    This game rocks...Rocky told me about it while I was away and sent me some pics of some of his cars... Well I downloaded the demo to give it a few pace laps and OMG...!!! Now I just need to dig my wheel out and really give it some pace laps because I don't think the keyboard is the preferred instrument to drive with.
  21. No worries bro...I'm just glad you didn't mail anything to Iraq recently or I may have never gotten it. I'll PM you my home addy. Cheers!
  22. Indeed...that was a ton o' fun. I've taken my daughter and son back a few times since I've been home...I discovered the range has a GSG-5 rifle and pistol version in their armory that you can rent...can't beat the price of .22 ammo...and it's a whole lotta fun to shoot. I think I might be able to scrounge up a pic to post...
