Mine is of course Malevolent. Add me as your friend and we can start playing some TF2 beta, amirite? Btw, the half hour that I got to play today was a blast.

EDIT: I joined the #lunixmonster community. Look for there.

Off Topic / Exciting times are ahead...
« on: January 11, 2007, 04:17:05 PM »
So, since there isn't that much activity right now, I decided to make a thread about some interesting things that are going on right now (to me) in entertainment/technology.

1. Firstly, go see these movies:

Pan's Labyrinth
Children of Men

Both of them are playing in theaters right now. Pan's Labyrinth (99% RottenTomatoes score; only one bad review from an idiot) has amazing imagery and style. Children of Men is perhaps the best cinematography in a movie recently, and it definitely deserves a place in the records for it. Besides that, it is an excellent look into the near future. They're definitely up there with the best movies of 2006. Plus all of the Oscar nominated movies will be coming out in a couple of months on DVD.

2. Then there's the new thing from Apple I am sure you have heard about (be it on the NS forums or on a news site) that surprisingly starts with "i":


A lot of people are excited about it while others just loathe Apple completely. I for one am excited about it. I plan on getting one if they aren't too expensive. I have been wanting a new phone and MP3 player, and I am glad I waited. It will be nice to have them both in one sleek package. The release can't come soon enough.

3. High-definition is really coming into its own now:

Warner introduces Total HD
LG's dual HD-DVD/Blu-ray player

So while no one knows what format will come out on top, it looks like either way you can't lose if you go for LG's player. And even if you don't, you'll still be able to watch Warner Bros. movies no matter what. Of course LG's player will have a high price tag (but all HD players do right now), and Warner Bros. probably will end up charging a good amount for their dual discs. I personally am not even going to attempt to jump into HD movies anytime soon. When players are going for 200 dollars, then maybe.

4. That one OS is around the corner:

Windows Vista
Keynote address from CES

I for one plan on getting Vista when it comes out because I get a large discount through my university (although I have to wait until April before it's available from the school). It's the only way you'll be able to get DirectX 10, but on top of that I just like the fact they are really making the interface sleek.

5.  Of course, there's also:


I plan on getting it when it comes out. Heh, I haven't renewed my account for about a month since my guild stopped raiding until the expansion. Even then, I am sort of tired of raiding, etc. I'll probably get to 70 and see what I feel like then. Man, it has needed new content for a while.

6. The new game consoles:

Some surprising sales figures

I never dreamed the Wii would do this well. It really seems like it has a chance for number two or even one. I guess Nintendo's approach of introducing new people to gaming is working. I myself am not really interested in the Wii. I just don't like the controller idea at all. The only game that I really want to play on it is Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Zelda being on GCN as well), and I know several people who have a Wii already, and since it's multiplayer, it should work out perfectly. I actually don't have any next-gen systems right now, but I plan on getting an Xbox 360 sometime this year probably. Gears of War was amazing.

7. And lastly, if you're into Nine Inch Nails (probably not, but I like them):

New album and live DVD

Look at the top two new entries. April can not come soon enough (likewise for the ensuing tour). I have high hopes that it will be better than With Teeth.

Off Topic / The Descent
« on: August 07, 2006, 06:23:45 PM »
It just came out here in the US, but it seems it came out in the UK about a year ago (and the UK's version is supposed to have a better ending). Anyway, this is one of the best horror movies I have seen in a while (probably one of the best period). They did an awesome job building up tension at the beginning, and the interactions between the characters as the events unfold are great.

So, if you like horror movies, go see it.

Off Topic / Tool - 10,000 Days
« on: May 03, 2006, 08:10:48 PM »
So, just wondering if anyone likes Tool and was waiting for the new album. It came out yesterday. I'm liking most of the songs, but nothing can beat Lateralus (or Ænima for that matter). Anyway, the songs take a bit getting used to, but some of them are very good after a few listens.

Off Topic / Go see Saw II.
« on: October 31, 2005, 07:26:56 PM »
Go see Saw II because it is pretty good. I thought it was better than the first. Yeah...

Off Topic / Killer 7
« on: July 09, 2005, 10:47:57 AM »
I was just wondering if anyone has at least tried out Killer 7. I tried to rent it from a Blockbuster somewhat near me, but, alas, this one sucks and didn't have it.

Anyway, I hear that you probably will either like it or hate it due to its rail system for movement. However, it's supposed to have a good story. I just wanted some more info since I really don't want to buy it and hate it.

Off Topic / Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
« on: May 20, 2005, 06:25:33 AM »
Well, by now, I'm sure most of you have seen it (blasphemy if not). Anyway what did you all think of it?

I thought it was  much better that the two prequels, and I thought it did a pretty good job living up to the older ones. There were some awesome sequences in it.

I also think people need to not look at the other movies as much. Everyone wants the new Star Wars movies to be as good as them. I think that if they didn't even see them, this movie (and possibly the others) would have a ton more praise. It also has to do a lot with nostalgia, and the fact that everyone is older now and not impressed as easy.

Anyway, it was definitely a fun movie to me, and I was happy with it (especially at the near end with Vader).

Delayed EDIT: Missed a word.

Yeah, Happy Bday Saney.

I noticed it was your birthday on the NS forums (don't really post there, so here it is here) today since you didn't put it in your profile here (:o). Maybe you'll break 20 posts now! :D

Well, I think a good amount of people have already heard about this new MMORPG. It isn't out yet but this new article is really making me think about getting it. The visuals in it are beautiful, and it has no monthly subscription.

Well here's my first true Photoshop attempt. All I've done up to now is really just play around with things. So, I thought it was time for the next step. C&C are welcome, but before you say anything, I know it's kinda plain, but that's how I like 'em :D. Oh, it's called "the ambush." Credits are at the bottom of the image and won't affect the look of it on your desktop since it'll be under the taskbar.


P.S. - Don't kill my MyImgs bandwidth with excessive views!

Happy B-Day to ya! Although, you prolly won't see it, since you're never on the forums v_v.

General / Wsaeintr Owns Me
« on: February 10, 2004, 06:46:10 PM »
So, whenever I try to play NS now, I always get the NET_SendPacket ERROR: WSAEINTR problem. So I get disconnected from the server; then it screws over Steam, and I have to completely reboot my computer in order to play again. But there's no point, since it happens every time (if you wondered why I suddenly left a game recently, that's why). So, I was wondering if everyone could give me every possible reason that it does this. Thanks in advance.

General / Dual Install?
« on: January 25, 2004, 07:01:34 AM »
I was wondering if it was possible in any way to have both 3.0 and 2.01x installed, since I don't want to go back and forth.
