2700 will be easily done, but 3k would be madness. 2750 seems attainable, but unlikely.

Eh,.. whatever. If we all keep posting about if whether there's any chance of getting to that post count, we'll be there in no time!



Last year was 2,776, buy the way. Our goal should be to at least equal, if not top that!

Seems doable... We are less than 100 away from an exact match.



Perhaps we should start the debate on what the next thread should be called... and who should start it.

Presents are all wrapped, Going down to my favorite liquor store for a bottle of wine to have with my Christmas Dinner... even with all the snow. Then going to hunker down cuddle up with my cat, and enjoy doing nothing

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Mass Effect?

i'm bored, listening to music.

tired...drank 3 amps while at work. had someone charge out the back door before i left...he was being followed by security personnel, apparently he tried stealing 4 cheap games, they were dropped. i didn't stick around to find out if he was caught, pretty sure he got away though. it was worth staying a little after 6.

it's windy out, so i'm kinda thinking we'll be without power sooner or later. -_-

I've played it a little bit.

It's kinda goofy... but fun.

Not for everybody, probably... but at the price, it's hard to go wrong.

Still: Downloading a demo first may not be a bad idea.

there's a demo for it on live? i'll check that out. i do want gears of war 1 still...trying to think of some other good ones that are down to $20-$30...

i'm thinking...

Mass Effect i think will be my next one...i could've got that yesterday, but really wanted to check Assassin's Creed.

BioShock (i'll give it a chance since i only played the demo, and at $20 can't go wrong..)

Orange Box (5 games, can't go wrong there for $30)

I need more games that aren't shooters, that are also multiplayer or have good gameplay/storyline. got any ideas?

edit: congrats on whoever takes the 2700th post!!

edit #2: (ANYBODY GOING TO TAKE THE 2700TH POST?! SHOULD I?)

Not a problem... especially if we just keep posting kinda random crap and spam.

Took it easy today. The rest of the week will be hectic enough without trying to go crazy today.

Made some more progress in CoD4:MW... maybe I'll finish it by the end of the week.

That's about it, really...

yeah i think it's a good deal, funny how it's that cheap, considering it was what, $59.99 this time last year? same with mass effect and assassin's creed.

found a kewl shoot em up style game that can kill a few hours... need to pay to go past the 4th region

http://www.rocksolidarcade.com/games/robokill/

I stock up on all the booze essentials. Vodka, Whisky, scotch, and brandy. Then for mixers i have sweet, and dry vermouth .. but i mainly use the dry vermouth for Vodka Martini's and the Sweet vermouth for Whiskey Manhattens.

i want rum and coke...i think i'm going out friday night.

i think i'll get back into bowling in '09. i haven't gone in months...mainly cause it's smoke-free, and the friends i'd go with smoke, and they stopped going because of that.

Just finished it 5 min. ago.

I think I did the whole game on regular.

I took me a year to get to it... but I went through most of it in a couple of days.

(We're going through the co-op WaW at veteran, though... I think.)


The next single-player games I plan to buy are Assassin's Creed and Bioshock... But my friend and I have discussed that we'll probably get Rainbow 6: Vegas 1 and 2 for the co-op.

Happy holidays everyone!

I have a cousin that bowls (on a different night during the winter, though), and he told me last night that he recently had his first 200+ games, so he's getting there.

Merry Christmas, all. Masses last night were good. Violin parts were pretty easy this year, except for this freaking Santus by Schubert that I could never get right. Played the same stuff at Mass this morning, except on piano. I definitely rocked out

So as gifts this year I received:

The Death Star novel - I haven't read Star Wars books since the NJO started, but this looks like it might be a good read.

The Force Unleashed for the 360 - looks fun.

Assassin's Creed that my sister picked up used for me. Never really looked into it, but I heard it was good.

I also have some new Haydn CDs to listen to - been getting into his music lately, so I picked up his concertos and oratorios to listen to duing the holidays. You can really tell that Beethoven learned a lot from Haydn.

But for now I'm off to watch A Christmas Story four times in a row

Sweet!

I need to get back into it.

I did a little candlepin last years, and it was great fun.

I sucked... but it was a good time!

Keyan:

Let me know what you think of those games... especially SW: TFU

I played the demo... and it was fun... but I wasn't sure if it was going to be enough to sustain my interest for a full game.
