  1. Number Six, whats your gamertag? I'll add everyone I've not got later tonight

    Sorry, only just saw this: it's KaiMac

    How does this work online? I've only ever played games against randoms picked out by the system. Is the tourny set up somewhere, or do we just play our individual games and report back the results?

  2. It's a nice idea, based on the whole netflix thing, but ultimately a flawed concept IMO.  Games cost far more for an online venture to buy in for resale than DVD's, and the turnaround time with customers is much longer.  So, they'll need a proportionately larger investment to have enough copies of new games (which they have to buy at premium prices) and before long sequelitus will have reduced their stock to a very low value.  The margins can't be pretty, and the competition is fierce.

    So, just don't sign up for any more than a month at a time is my advice.  Just in case.

    I've been using www.gamefly.com for a few months now, and have nothing but good things to say about them. The latest releases do sometimes have a little wait, but I've always managed to get my 2nd or 3rd choice. I've got 40 games in my queue... two out at a time for the price of half a game a month. Games I really like I can buy off them for a reduced price (guaranteed to work, plus you've had a chance to take a look at the cd before you buy). All formats, loads of games, really quick shipping. I like 'em a lot.

  3. but try to do Disneyland, take the 2 day tickets and go twice. you may not think you'll like it but trust me it's fantastic

    Disneyland is as close to hell on earth as it is possible to get. Staggeringly nasty place. Magic Mountain is the only theme park worth visiting in southern california, imo.

    i couldn't find any actual poker (classic or hold em) in the casinos. Where are the poker rooms?

    Prob is they don't make the casinos much money (relative to the main casiono revenue stream: slot machines), so they tend to be a bit hidden.... prob half the strip casinos have 'em though. Harrah's is a good place to start, imo: nice and friendly, not so much bullshit.

  4. I'm on my fourth bloody unit now. First one bought on friday, half a dozen dead pixels, two of which were slap bang in the middle of the screen. Fine for games, shit for movies. Exchanged for a second saturday morning. That one went back today: bizzarely warped screen at the bottom. What looked like little waves in the screen itself. Third one today had bubbles in the plastic of the screen and didn't even make it out of the shop. My fourth (and final) unit has a perfect screen, but the pop out slot where the discs go is slightly bent, so it doesn't sit flush against the main body of the unit.

    It's a lovely, lovely thing, but I'm shocked at the build quality of the four I've seen. I'm not the type to take things back usually, but if they're going to charge $250 for it, it should come out of the box perfect imo.

    Still, Wipeout and Lumines *are* absolutely lovely. A very very impressive bit of kit, manufacturing problems aside. I can only assume that the warehouse that supplied my local shops had a shitload of duds. Or Sony couldn't be arsed to check them properly, or something.
