Television / Re: Lost
« on: May 05, 2007, 11:57:26 PM »
I love Lost, I never missed an episode of the first two seasons, but the third one, well, I watched the first episode, and then I came here.
Stupid common rooms and loud obnoxious anti-Lost hallmates...

Please warn of spoilers on this thread! I'm yet to see most of the third season!

Current Affairs / Re: From Disney to Porn

I always found Winnie the Pooh pretty hardcore... I mean, he never wears pants, Piglet is always in tights, and Rabbit, Tigger and Owl never wear a thing, and finally, Eeyore is naked and on all fours, often without even a tail to cover him. I think this is just an extension on that.
(Hooray for destroying your perception of A.A. Milne's classic children's tales forever! Not an accusation at Disney)

Animate (Flash) / Re: Flash master.

Dear God, that's all done in Flash? I just watched the music video at the top of the page, but that's amazing! Never heard the song before, but that hardly matters with that kind of animation behind (in front of?) it.

Movies / Re: Alvin and the chipmunks.

Ha, I was hearing about a Alvin and the Chipmunks movie in the future, but I would never have picked Jason Lee as a choice to play Alvin! This is shaping up to sound interesting...
Why do I predict tiny mammals rapping in the near future?... *Shudder*

I plan on going to Britain at this point once I'm out of the course; even as just a temporary thing.
Internships of course sound interesting, but how do we find out about them? Random advertisements, unis, or do we actually just wait for a couple of years until we're ready and not just a curious first year?

lol, Im becoming a caffeine junky, next thing you know I'll be snorting nescafe off the ass of a gloria jeans barista...

I wouldn't try that, baristas are bitter enough as it is...

I like the sound of this mini-fridge idea. Pam, aren't you selling one? Well, I know you are, because I replied to it. Maybe we should put towards that?

Comparisons / Re: MAC or PC poll, actual forum poll this time!
« on: May 05, 2007, 11:14:46 PM »
PC gets my vote too, though I'd like to justify it.

Basically, a PC comes with as many alterations as you would like. Besides the obvious advantage of having a DEFAULT mouse with two (gasp, two!) buttons on it, you can get into it, change the bios, create your own code, and not actually lose anything (meanwhile with a mac if something is lost, it's gone).
I suppose Macs are more useful for simpler things, or when you just want to get on with your work and do it how the developers said, meanwhile, PC is more or less a playground. Albiet, an expensive one.
Also, I don't trust anything costing over $2000 and being named after a fruit.

$2,500 for a machine that creates ice cold drinks in a place we'll mostly be in during the winter and colder months? Well just sign me up!

omG! black books is teh sex!  :P

Yes, I agree. I like to have sex with Black Books.
I also enjoy the television series. Just as a side note, since other people are including series here, I believe you can't go past Red Dwarf; sci-fi comedy at its best.

Movies / Re: The Mummy 3
« on: May 05, 2007, 07:27:13 PM »
I didn't like nor dislike the first two mummy films... I mean, I'm into mythology and all (though the idea of a mummy coming back to life is actually a work of Elizabethan fiction), but they held really little interest, though they had some cool effects. In fact, I was only starting to get really interested in VFX when I saw the guy's face appear in the sand wave, and I always wanted to know how that was done...
Probably a lot more simply than I would've thought...

Anyway, onto the topic, the 3rd movie may be good, I will see it and THEN judge.

Mostly, it appeals more to my sadistic side - I like it when he falls and seems to either fall unconscious or dies.

Actually, that makes perfect sense in response to my friend in question... >_>

Music / Re: Favoritest Band/Song ever !
« on: May 05, 2007, 05:01:59 PM »
Um, I'm a big fan of Startovarius, Dragonforce and Rhapsody of Fire, and my fave solo signer is Meatloaf, but besides that this is too big of a question for me...

Long live Zork!

good thing is.. lucas arts have nothing to do with the new sam and max... they finally got it.. i don know.. syndicated?

Well, apparently after ten years the licensing with Lucasarts went back to Steve Purcell, the creator of the series (who now works for Pixar). He ended up selling the license to Telltale Games, after they showed some real initiative and ability to further create the series after Lucasarts canceled the Sequel, much like they did to Full Throttle 2.
They've also said that they have no plans to create any further Monkey Island games until after 2010 (NOOOOO! :'()

Games / Adventure Games
« on: May 05, 2007, 01:48:52 PM »
You know what I'm talking about, the pointing and the clicking and the pointing and the clicking and the so on of games long past.
Adventure games, especially puzzle based ones, are my favorite genre of games. They usually support witty, intelligent scripts, sometimes out-of-logic (not quite the same as illogical) puzzles, and varied, beautiful art design. There's alot of talk about the genre dying, which is quite the sad idea; after all, we're not going to see their like again in the same quantity.
Anyway, the point of this topic is to discuss our old games of days long past, like Monkey Island, Grim Fandango, Sam and Max, Day of the Tentacle, Broken Sword, and many others.
Anyone else miss this genre? And any news of games upcoming? I know I'm looking forward to a Vampyre Quest or whatever it's called, and I'm a happy supporter of Telltale Games, which contains most of the adventure game design staff of Lucasarts Adventures...
They're even making the new Sam and Max series...

I'm a bit of a final fantasy fan.. although even tho i didn't mind x-2 i must admit its kinda killed the fan-girl in me... i'm just not a fan of the whole chapter thing and I've heard they've continued it in 12... they had such a good thing going why did they feel the need to "improve" it? my blame rests on enix.. if only squaresoft hadn't bothered with the first movie i bet they never would of started this whole chapters thing... >:(

I doubt it's Enix's fault; after all, they originally owned Dragon Quest and they didn't do the same thing with them (unless you include the Slime based game on DS), and anyway, they're showing A LOT of support for the DS; the FFXII 'sequel' is going to be released on the DS, so at least it's not going to be completely the same, and Dragon Quest series is being continued exclusively on the DS. They've also shown a lot of interest in the Wii, so they may be the shining RPG beacon for us Nintendo fans...
Also, has anyone else heard that FFXIII isn't going to be PS3 exclusive? A gutsy move by Square-Enix... Apparently a lot of Sony fans are in an uproar...
