Apr 21, 2009The phrase "That's so gay" has nothing to do with this linkx, you're thinking something along the lines of " kid you're so gay ", and I can definitely see when that crap is built on the child every single day it could get really tough.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
(honestly I'd think it would be pretty dumb if some kid went home an tried hurting themselves because they were indifferent about their sexuality and liked the same gender an had a hiss fit cause some kid said; "ugh this class is so gay I wish it'd be over already"
Using the word gay out of context, i.e. "That's so gay" is aiming towards "That's so stupid" or the other politically incorrect term "That's so retarded", which are all wrong, but again the matter of this boy killin himself isn't because of someone using those words like that. They're were targeting him personally.
Shit like this is exactly why parents need to step up their efforts in public schools, and teach their kids right from wrong, and also teach them that they're better than those punk kids calling them names like "fag, or gay", just turn the cheek show everyone else around them that they're better than that. I know stuff isn't always so easy.
Sometimes it could help to put their child in some sort of home school program if they're struggling on a great level because of these kids ( at least until these bullies are dealt with thorougly), but still let them go enjoy the after school activities such as football, baseball, etc. Most homeschooling is still done through the district they live in so the kids are always able to join in those sort of things.
Obviously there was a big problem on the parenting side too, to lead the child to do this. There's all sorts of factors that build into these kinds of equations.
Oh and P.S. can we keep the oprah winfrey-esc posts off the forums even if it is general chat? Hell I could visit yahoo news or something stupid like that and come here with a new topic on how a kid killed themselves every damn day. It's just stupid, sure it makes for a topic to talk about but really. Are you going to go up to a RL buddy an talk about some poor kid in timbucktoo that offed themself cause they were teased in school? Probably not.
Apr 20, 2009Asus has a new laptop out for $899.99, cheap for the specs it has, and Asus is generally a pretty darn good company about it's computers and parts. I had an asus motherboard in my last desktop an loved it to death!.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
That's the computer, it will definitely run any game out there today, and yes even SC2 / D3 when those are release I'm most sure of.
And this laptop does have a smaller screen and will be lighter to carry around at school, even looks pretty flashy too. All in all it seems like a good buy, unless you don't mind carrying around something a bit bigger,
For 1149.99 you can buy
Gateway FX series
Two of my friends own this laptop, it's a hella good gaming rig, and they both use it for their college courses. They just lug it around in a nice laptop bag.
Any questions bout those computers, hit me up in a pm.
I honestly think that asus rig is a great buy for any gamer / college student that wants a laptop computer for under a grand, and wants to play any game out there.
It's got 4gb pc 6400 ram
320gb hard drive
9800m gs graphics card
all of which score a 5.9 in vista's experience index the processor lacks a little but it still works great.
dell owns alienware guys lol they're the same laptops, they're way overpriced considering bang for your buck specs. You can get close to as good for waaaayy cheaper.
Feb 23, 2009Nope doesn't work like that. Your cd keys are bound to the account you made. ( you have to enter them in the account creation screen ), so selling your game disks is pretty pointless, there's free client downloads off of the world of warcraft website even.Posted in: Warcraft & WoW
Feb 17, 2009Good to hear about this announcement so soon. I'm definitely not leaving any friends to getting my tickets this time around because last year was a complete mess. When the time comes near an anyone wants to talk room booking to cut costs an stuff then pm me. Obviously won't talk up anything on that topic until tickets are confirmed ._. boy this years going to be a real rat race.Posted in: News & Announcements
Jan 13, 2009Freak_of_Nature posted a message on best job in the world offered.... sigh... i want itI meant it as a job, not a place to live. To each their own I suppose, and of course they'd let you / your family go live there ( at least I'd really hope so ). But it's a job meant for those people who just can't stand others I suppose. Sure it'd be beautiful, and very nice for a while, but shit would get stale and old without being able to just hop in the car an go for a drive through the cities every now an then.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Jan 13, 2009I like how this movie thread got down to losing bees in the planet, sure that was one part brought up in the movie. But the movie was about plants going a-wall cause of that and releasing toxins that were making people lose control of several parts of their brain / nervous system, causing everyone to kill themselves.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
I thought the movie was decent, I enjoy most movies starring Mark Wahlberg, he's just a good actor in general, but that being mild at best, most of the movie was a complete snore fest. They were running away from the air, shit does not get anymore boring than that.

This guys got the right idea, I'd say either dj or I'd even go for a security position. Yall could learn a thing or two from him, playing at a club with half naked women.. or taking care of a island in the middle of nowhere by yourself off the coast of austrailia. Hmm decisions, decisions.
Jan 11, 2009Siay you select the resolution settings in your 360 under console management bs. As far as cables go for hd output you use Component / hdmi cables when it comes to the 360, there's also the option of vga / standard definition. You dont have to buy an hdmi cable for hd picture, you can just use the component cable that came with your system, an use the LR audio. Unless you just want a one simple cable setup for audio / visual. Do not ever buy hdmi cables from retail outlets they charge you out the A-hole. Get them online for about $3-$7Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Jan 11, 2009I own a 42in, philips 1080p hdtv, I owned a 720p prior to this, and I must say 1080p is the definite way to go, the resolution is just so much nicer when it comes to watching films and playing games for sure. It all depends on what you want a tv for, plasma hdtvs have amazing picture, where as lcds can take more of a beating, no burnins / last longer, an look very nice at the same time.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Some things you want to look at when you go to choose the tv that fits you include, aspect ratio 16:9 is the best for movies / video games, contrast ratio for white / black levels ( my tv has a 20,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio), refresh rate, resolution, also check for inputs, it's nice to have a usb for firmware updates (most hdtvs have them these days), a good amount of hdmi and component ports are always a plus too; my television has 4 hdmi, 3 component, 3 standard, 2 svideo..etc. I suppose since you're looking for a tv under 32-42 inches, that 720p would be more suitable for you basically because the picture will just look a little better, most of the 1080p hdtvs under 32 inches have really low contrast levels, which really aren't always that amazing.
In my opinion, LG, Samsung, Sony, Philips, Toshiba, Westinghouse Panasonic..etc. are all pretty decent brands when it comes to hdtvs.0+
The samsung you found on newegg iis a good choice. I owned a 37in 720p before i picked my 42inch up, and i never had a single problem with it, I just wanted a higher resolution. And the 42in i bought was cheaper .. yay for employee discounts :).
http://reviews.cnet.com/720p-vs-1080p-hdtv/ decent review comparing television scaling / resolutions.
There is always the option of buying a monitor if you dont watch regular air televison or cable, you could get a 26in monitor with 1920 x 1200 resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio, with hdmi, dvi, vga, and in some cases component ports for your gaming and what not, but I guess a tv would be good just to have that ability to kick back an watch shit every now an then on cable or satellite.
Dec 21, 2008There's only one word I can think of to describe this game, and that word is easily "Amazing". I played diablo religiously for 3-4 years, but I ended up falling into the wretches of the pay to play world some where along the lines an got sucked into wow, and the social atmosphere kept me so long that I pretty much forgot all about the amazingly geared characters I had on D2, it was fun.Posted in: Diablo II
The way Diablo 3 is shaping up, it might be the only game I buy the year it comes out. Game publishers think it's a good idea to drain pockets and release an array of video games within 2 - 3 months of eachother, and it quite frainkly burns holes in my pockets, then I end up not being able to play the games I got anyways, cause things happen so radically quick, life changes and you have to choose those games, or work / friends / family / etc, but I know as a hardcore gaming fan, that I'll never forget about the hella good times I had with the diablo games; it's definitely #1 in my book :D.
Dec 21, 2008I know exactly what you're talking about, I just did not quite word my stuff out right, I guess I just think it's wrong; to turn on the evening news and hear about a mother with a young daughter getting fined for thirty-five thousand dollars for sharing music over p2p services.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
I know all these big time corporations think nothing but money, cause money is power to most of the world, but to see a family get shattered due to these extremists "trying to set an example" is just wrong, music is a gift, it's something that's everywhere; anyone can make music. But these people throw flash, flare, and fashion into the mix and turn it into something evil, and they use their posse "RIAA" to go around an beat people down for loving music.
~my two cents.
Dec 21, 2008I really do get a hearty chuckle out of the RIAA. I think about it like this, there's websites that let you download unlimited amounts of music for small monthly fees, you have the ability to record music straight from the radio / hd radio w/ cassets, and some cases even with cds. Hell I even have a program that I bought at walmart, that allows you to record as much music from internet radio stations as you want.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
I mean what the hell are they trying to do? Someones downloading the song straight up from a p2p site, but they dont go breaking doors down for the things I've listed, which are most likely on a high scale if not as high as p2p sharing. It makes me laugh so hard, they're doing it for a quick buck an possible pats on their backs to stroke their own little egos'. It's not like the music industry is crashing, it's growing.. tremendously, look at how much itunes makes, look at all the swag an tickets sold for concerts, they make SHIT tons of cash. Then they try to go around an take single moms for $35,000 fines for downloading a some music.

Aug 22, 2008My suggestions concerning trading features and pvp features.Posted in: News
PvP- We need a more focused system here, this cat and dog chasing around maps gets old, fast. Hardcore mode pvp is such a waste, you work your butt off to play russian rollette with someone of equal or greater power, reward?.. Gear; loss..?;everything.
I think it needs to be refined with a better system, why can't gladiator type arenas be thrown in, or game types with pvp objectives, maybe races; like beating another player in a race that deals with killing tons of really difficult bosses in a set time frame?.. The game is after all a fast paced hack'n'slash. Why not have different game types setup for pvp, or npcs you could go to an engage in these events by talking to them and choosing where you'd like to compete. Like for instance- Be the last man standing in a deathmatch, where the spin is. You have to survive against the opposing players, and an onslaught of helacious demons that are there willing to tear you limb from limb- Reward, possibly amazing loot? Because it doesn't have to cater to all those people who wish to pvp, cause again it's arena style, the strongest player or most strategically skilled player will stand victorious.
In reality there just has to be more than, player-x, + kills player-y.. = bragging rights and an ear, or gear if you're on hardcore mode. There needs to be something more engaging to the player. That's the jist of what my opinions on pvp as it was in diablo 2 and where I think pvp should go in diablo 3.
Bartering is outdated, there really needs to be a set currency even if this game is co-op. Why can't there be caravan of sorts that you can drop items off at that you want to sell to other players, and any other player in the game could go to the caravan and purchase your item for a set price, or bid on the item. A mailing system needs to be implemented some how. By now I hope everyone realizes that a game like diablo, you sure as hell create more than one character. And many a time do players find some amazingly useful item that doesn't fit the character they found it on but would greatly suit another one in their arsenal. Maybe change gold with a lower metal?; keep it but have it worth more in it's respects. Like for instance 1000 copper = 1 gold, make copper heavily readily available like gold drops were in diablo 2.
Diablo's main flaws were these two systems, and I think it's great that they've been brought up for discussion. I know my ideas aren't wholely original ( or that's what I'm expecting ), but I believe they're noteworthy. Diablo 2 was and still is one of my most favorite games of all time, and if Diablo 3 can pick up on a couple of places where diablo 2 lacked. It can definitely be up there as one of the greatest video games ever made. Not many games can make you feel like a god in it's respects. Diablo did just that, made you feel more than human in the game world set in sanctuary. Keeping the formula from diablo 2 to diablo 3 is a great plus, but lets throw some more calculations in there.
Sorry for some of the mangled sentences, I wrote this at 2:30 in the morning; after coming back from the midnight movie release of deathrace.
Aug 8, 2008Sigh team marketing strategies for the lose. I'm a Dish network subscriber, I actually approve of this company over direct tv. They're just nice folk. Been subscribed to them for a few years now. Sigh... I'd love to get ahold of that polar bear mount an watch this coverage on my 42in 1080p lcd hdtv..Posted in: News
Jul 9, 2008They've already stated due to battle.nets structure or something along those lines they aren't going to make the UI customizable like WoW.Posted in: News
My main question deals with item balancing, mostly runewords, Are we going to see runewords in DIII; How are runewords going to differ from unique loot( same scale, balanced at a more powerful point, etc. )
edit: And another one; Item sets; are we going to be seeing those at all?, and if so are they going to play a more significant part in game play, ( most of the item sets from d2 couldn't compare to the caliber of even some of the mildest runewords )
Any thought on the subject as far as item balance goes and how they're working that out is what I'm mostly getting at. Feel free to pick my question apart.
