    The more I think about this issue, the more I think that MS should just bite the bullet and start offering Blueray drives with all of their new 360s. The LEAST that MS should have offered is a standard HD drive for both gaming and movies. The way it looks right now, the 360 is severely handicapped by the inferior medium MS has chosen. What a shame, because as far as processing power goes, it appears that the 360 CAN go head to head with the PS3. What a shame.
  2. Make me a fair offer on it and you can have mine.. (will trade for gun parts) Sorry, but I am not sure I have anything in that price range. Maybe a selector with a travel adjustment on it? In all seriousness though I still have not even picked up a 360. I really have spent VERY little time gaming in the last year or so, as a result my plans in regard to buying a 360 are not only on the back burner, but the burner is in the off position. If I start gaming more, then I will jump on one.

    I wonder if the next MS console will be backward compatible if it is running with a blueray player. No backward compatibility would be a huge downer for me.
  4. Although I cannot say that I am the biggest Halo fan, I still enjoy the series quite a bit. I found Halo & Halo 2 both interesting and still plan on buying Halo 3 (when I get around to it). I also plan on picking up Halo Wars too, but who knows when I will get around to a 360. Anyway, this title looks like a winner, but that is no surprise to me as I found the series improving and not going down hill as some other titles have.
  5. Interesting, but I highly doubt PC gaming will ever die out completely. The last PC games I bought were GR Gold Edition and RVS. I now game primarily on a console, since I do not game enough to justify investing so much into hardware for the latest games. Now I know if I had to buy a new TV to support the higher def games of today this could easily "balance" the cost factor, but I am already set on the TV, so for me it is only the cost of the console. I just do not game enough to justify the expense of PC gaming, but for the hardcore PC gamer, I just do not see them switching over. I think the people that drop PC gaming will be people more like myself, as I do not have THAT much commitment to gaming to begin with.

    That really gives me some info to think about. I am glad now that I did not go out an buy that HD DVD player, as this is the first I have heard that MS would possibly support Blueray (I know, I do not keep up with this stuff too much). I think I will take a sit back and wait even longer stance and see what happens. I am not pressed in regard to buying the next gen console, so it won't hurt me to wait a bit longer.

    I am really curious what will happen to the whole DVD vs Blueray "war". I guess I will sit back and take a wait and see stance for now.
  8. I am not in rush, so I think that I will wait to see what happens in regard to the price first. Thanks for the info guys.

    I thought I saw an article a couple years ago that stated the PS3's blueray was only for movies, and that the games would still be on regular DVDs. I am concerned about this because if blueray takes over as a format, then could it not be possible that this transition could affect the gaming industry too? Would that not make 360s obsolete? I know that there are many of you on this forum that know much more about gaming than I do, so I am just wondering what your thoughts are, or if you already have information on this subject that you could shed some more light on.
  10. I heard that the "new" 65nm processor was starting to trickle onto the market, but that there is still a large number of old 90nm processors still in many 360s on the shelves. That was a few months ago so I am wondering if there is any new news on the subject. I know, I am pretty far behind on the gaming scene, but I don't game much so I am still working on finishing SCDA on the elite mode (just bought it a month ago), and when I finish it, I was considering trying out the new 360. Are all 360s now equiped with the new processor, or are there still a few remaining with the old processor still in it?
  11. Not necessarily, there was an extremely antigun D.C. ward council member in the early 80's or late 70's (I cannot recall the exact date, hey it was a long time ago) that shot an intruder that broke into his home. Now for those who follow these things, the gun ban had already been in place, so this guy was a hypocrite and a lawbreaker to say the least. Stuff like this does not surprise me. Heck, Foley was a champion of protecting children from pedophiles, NOW championed Bill Clinton as a hero for their cause when he was elected into the White House, gay ministers that preach against homosexuality every sunday, Hollywood stars driving hybrids while heating and cooling 30,000-50,000 square foot mansions and pushing the public to be more "responsible" , etc...
  12. I'm pretty sure i saw a discussion earlier in the week with a link stating it was coming to both 360 & PS3 I'll post the link over if i can remember where i saw it Or just come join the forum and you can have all the news. Link to BFS forum
  13. A lot of nicknacks (socks, shirts, phone, etc...), but the one that I am enjoying the most is the one I bought. 2X-12X IOR scope. Very compact, it only measure 11". I was looking at a Schmidt Bender until I found that it measured over 14" and it only goes out to 10X. No thanks. Here is a pic of the ret. I have not mounted it yet since my rifle is not ready as of this moment. I also got an A.R.M.S. quick detach mount for my 1.5X-8X scope.
  14. Just don't forget to have BOTH shoulder straps for the overalls, EVERYONE knows that overalls with BOTH shoulder straps is what makes all the difference.
  15. Are you talking about me? Be careful, because I'm a Navy SEAL. He was pretty pathetic, and to make matters worse, it was not some 14 year old kid. Didn't he turn out to be some guy on a SWAT team or something? I really did not understand that one, what is so embarrassing about being on a SWAT team that would cause someone to try to pose as a SEAL? People these days.
  16. This looks really incredible, but I don't have any plans on buying a PS3. Heck, I have not even picked up a 360 yet and I hear that the new processor has made it into the system. I just picked up Splinter Cell DA a few weeks ago and after starting the campaign I did not run it again for a couple weeks, so I still have to finish that. I barely game enough to justify one system, much less two. Not to mention my POOR past experience with MANY Sony products that have really soured me on the company. Any chance that this could make it onto the 360?
  17. Good to hear. It does not appear that there are too many high fences on this forum.
  18. Here is part of an article that Hatchetforce posted in another thread a while back. Link to thread This is just a small portion, so you can click on the link to read the whole thing. Now either HF is a liar that posted a bad article from a bad magazine (Soldier of Fortune magazine, which I do believe is a very good publication, and I do read this magazine very regularly), or the original article that DS posted is simply poorly written. I tend to lean in the direction that DS's article was poorly written. I do believe that HF has also stated himself (in another thread) that US SOF guy ARE often in local attire, and often do sport the beards and whatever other "signature" styles that the locals don. Each person here has to decide what they think is correct, but I personally find this original article by DS suspect. In regard to Parabellum and DS Parabellum did jump into this thread on somewhat of a strong note, but as he stated, there was no point in this thread where he resorted to personal attacks, so it baffles me that DS would respond in this sort of manner, and I quote Sorry DS, but your parlance in this thread has not been particularly kind, and especially considering that it is not even an article that was written by you, such offense should not be taken. I know that your intentions/motives are being questioned so you probably have some strong feelings about how you are being viewed, but this sort of name calling will only bring a thread down.
  19. Generally I agree, but the S&W .460 with the hunting barrel can take a deer down easily at over 300 yards. Also, I have shot Winchester's coppercoated slugs and they can group less than 3" at 200 yards. There are a good number of slugs nowdays that can take down deer at well over 200 yards.
  20. I have been gone for a long time, but thought I would drop in. Nice pictures. I would love to try shooting a SCAR. The one gun that I have not had a chance to put any rounds through. Looks like you had a good time. Keep the pics rolling.
  21. Because this thread is for speaking of our ideal game in general. And there's plenty of overall game design theory that can be said in general but still apply to BFS's game. Yes, then speak IN GENERAL about what you would like in a game you would design, but when you address posts where BFS is specifically being addressed, and you do not even specify that you are speaking in general terms, then how does that look? Not to mention the fact that you are quoting from the same posts by the same people that are trying to address the exact game. Don't quote posts that are addressing a specific title if you are speaking in general terms, and if that does not make sense to you, don't be so surprised when people ignore you.
  22. Ever think that some people like to collect things or maybe they even have them for other purposes? Looks like you are taking a judge first before you ask questions stance here. I know someone that does research for a university, and he studies noctural creatures, and he has tons of NV gear, I guess that makes him an absolute lunatic. Dickie, shooting with a suppressor does not give your position away, so AGAIN you have made an assumption and you are incorrect. Go ahead, call out to your intruder, I won't judge you for doing what you feel is right, but you are clearly judging others that have family to protect for taking a different approach. What ever happened to each their own? Don't be so self righteous and judge others, we are all adults here, let people make their own choices. Nobody is calling you irresponsible and careless with the lives of your family by potentially letting an assailent kill them, so why can't you just let others take care of their own business? I don't have a problem with you saying why you personally would call out first, or if you personally have a problem with owning a gun. Last I checked where I live you are free to live your life the way you want, so I don't care how someone decides to protect their home, as long as it does not affect my home. Dickie, you may have a lot of people coming and going in your home, but don't assume that ti is the same for everyone.
