    DOCTOR WHO - coming back!

    AMERICAN GOTHIC due in October!

    And when are those releases due? Honestly, I'd rather have the edited versions than none at all. Of course, shame on Universal if they do go that route. Shame! Martin.

    AMERICAN GOTHIC due in October!

    Well anyway, I was just wishing for this show yesterday. Awesome news! :emoji_thumbsup: Martin.

    Halo2 Expansion Maps, anyone getting them?

    Got 'em! Martin.

    Doctor Who Star quits!

    But what about giant-sewer-rat-to-human violence? :) I hear you. But in the spirit of an argument, I would like to point out that often prejudiced or racist people don't tend to view their targets as entirely human. So in a way, this type of desensitization can indeed have real world effects...

    Doctor Who Star quits!

    I dunno. If somebody gets shot and dies, that seems kinda violent to me. In the penultimate episode, Captain Jack and the Doctor did fight their way out of that holding cell. And they didn't do it with pretty words... :) And in Earthshock, the Doctor did suffocate the Cyberman with Adric's...

    Doctor Who Star quits!

    Hey, I'm all for parents making responsible decisions about their childrens viewing. IMHO, parents all too often shirk this responsibility. And I have no problems with whatever decisions they make about what is and is not acceptable. New Dr. Who (or the old Dr. Who for that matter) may not be...

    Doctor Who Star quits!

    Well, that's it. It's aired in Canada now. So I hope I'm not out of line not spoilerizing my next comments. First, great series! One minor complaint I had about the finale, and in fact a few of the other episodes, was the "Deus ex machina" ending. Dr. Who has always been about pulling a...

    Doctor Who Star quits!

    Actually, I guess we agree. Billie Piper is marvelous in DW, but I really like Eccleston's portrayal. Androzani was great, too. But how could you give the Aliens of London and World War Three such low marks? How could you not appreciate something so obviously self mocking? :) NOTE TO THOSE...

    Doctor Who Star quits!

    Wow PhilipG, I couldn't agree less! Amazing that we could have such different takes on the show. Cheers, Martin.

    Doctor Who Star quits!

    I think they've done a really great job showing how "inhuman" the Doctor is. The writing, combined with the acting, really gives the impression of a different "mindset" than the typically "human". In human terms, this guy is almost sociopathic! It's not blatant, but rather the subtle mixing in...

    Halo 2, need a 2x2 partner

    I guess it was. :frowning: Here's a bump for ya'. If you like, add "Mister Creosote" to your friends list, and we'll see if we get anywhere with DT. Martin.

    Halo 2 Team Slayer Thread

    Hey Carlo, Sorry for being grumpy last night. :frowning: 3 and 7 does that to me. :) When are you on next? We seriously need to redeem ourselves! Martin.

    Can't seem to find the dual disc anywhere. Grrr. But I did see the Downward Spiral DD at a local HMV... for $55 CDN. Lol. Glad I found the SACD somewhat cheaper. Martin.

    Halo 2 Autoupdate - I like it!

    The 2 on 2 playlist should be interesting. Martin.

    Halo 2 Autoupdate - I like it!

    Sniper, rocket, dual SMG, lots of grenades. Shottie!! :) I for one will miss the plasma pistol. Had great success running around with that and an SMG. Martin.

    Shall we dance? Arranged Halo 2 match April 30, 2005 to celebrate updates!

    The party leader doesn't necesarily host (in the client/server sense) the games. That is figured out by the xboxes together. So go for it Tim! Martin.

    PSP: What games you have??

    I have Lumines and Wipeout. I've only played Wipeout for about 15 minutes. Then got really into/frustrated with Lumines. Which is the current state of affairs. So when do we get a FPS? :D Martin.

    Where to Buy Unbundled PSP in Canada

    While not a popular thread :) 20 views and my ambiguous subject suggests that a few people might have wanted to know the answer too this themselves. So... I found the PSP without the stupid hockey game (and also without Spiderman 2 movie) at Best Buy at Heartland in Mississauga for $300. They...

    Halo 2 Autoupdate - I like it!

    I can't wait for the stats reset. It'll be lots of fun working back up the team slayer rankings. I trust you'll be in for some of that? Martin.

    Maybe it's the movie? Was Kevin Costner in it? Martin.

    Halo 2 Autoupdate - I like it!

    Ah, I was just reading bungie.net (and it takes a while to get the stink off - lol), and a BR thread mentioned that three body shots (9 bullets) from the BR will take shields down, and 1 headshot thereafter will kill. The 6 I was misremembering was if you just have body shots. So, it's...

    Nah. The game plays more like Halo CE now, so you should be fine. Martin.
