    Baseball Game Choice - What's Yours?

    I'm a big fan of the High Heat series, and will be picking this one up no matter what. I love the pitcher-batter interface and lack of cursor. The gameplay seems natural and fun, like a baseball videogame should be. However, with EA's retooling of their baseball game in MVP, then new All-Star...

    Visiting Montreal this Weekend - Suggestions?

    I'm visiting Montreal this weekend with a bunch of friends. We're staying at the new Sofitel and plan on hitting the nightlife and such. We're all Manhattanites, so we'll be dredging for the clubs, interesting lounges, good local food, and the like. Just wanted to know if anyone here had any...

    Paul Weller - Illumination (US Release)

    This gem was just released on Thursday, January 14. Holy cow. What an achievement. From perfect soul tracks like "It's Written In The Stars" to swooners like "Who Brings Joy," this CD is a must-have for anyone who appeciates good rock and roll, soul, and a little bit of funk. The new US...

    Games You Haven't Finished...and Why.

    The Shenmue thread as well as a recent conversation got me thinking about all the games in my collection that I still haven't finished (or never will). Then I thought about all the games in the past that I never finished. So, dear friends, it's time to fess up. I shall start. 1. Fatal...

    Let's Talk Scotch / Whisky

    So with the beer thread going strong, I'd like to get a little talk-on about my drink of late, Scotch. My recent purchase was a 10-year Balvenie, which I enjoy on the rocks (I know, sacrilege). I'm a Scotch newbie, for the most part. I've really only been exposed to Dewars, Dahlwhinnie, and...

    Do you do what you studied to do?

    I'll start. I studied Political Science in both undergraduate and graduate school. I thought I wanted to be a professor and wanted to teach Poli Sci. I then went to graduate school at University of Chicago. I worked closely with a professor and mentor, and realized that wasn't the career I...

    Owww. Bruises from MA

    I had a great karate workout last night, but I'm also now dealing with a pretty big bruise/contusion on my left arm from blocking a black belt's ultra-strong shuto chop. Anyway, I've tried Tiger Balm, White Rose, and SalonPass as ointments that feel pretty good. Anyone have any bruise-healing...

    So should I get the new couch?

    I just got the lease renewal for my place in NYC and they're not raising the rent, which is a good thing. I've been eye-ing a couch for about a year now, and I sort of told myself that I'd go and get the couch if the rent didn't go up much. So here I am contemplating getting the new $3000...

    No ICO2 :(

    I heard today that because of poor sales (only 70,000 copies), plans to do an ICO2 have been "squashed". The team that made the game, however, are still around, and are hopefully working on something just as brilliant. Just though I'd share the sad news with those here who appreciated the...

    Sony RM-AV2100 remote on the fritz

    I have a Sony RM-AV2100 remote that has recently started bugging out on me. Specifically, system control button 1 and the backlight are not working. Of course, I'm a month out of warranty. Anyone know of any solutions, and does anyone have any idea how much a repair starts at for this item...

    New Toshiba 20AF42

    Just picked up this set this weekend, thinking I was going to get the 20AF41, but apparently this is the new model for this year. Anyone know what Toshiba changed? As I don't have the 20AF41, I'm unable to really compare.

    Anyone Playing Fatal Frame?

    This game is a thriller masterpiece. If you ever wanted to be part of The Shining, Amityville Horror, The Changeling, The Haunting, or any other classic ghost tale, this game is for you. My only problem is that this game is *so* chilling that I've been avoiding it all weekend. Anyone else?
