Political Ranting / How was everyone's voting experience?
« on: November 06, 2018, 04:32:17 PM »
Well, today's the day and, regardless of what arguments and counter-arguments you've heard, you've made your decisions. So how'd it go?

Here in Washington, it's pretty awesome because our ballots get mailed to us and we can just drop them off in ballot boxes (so much easier than back in SC). So that was a pleasant experience. I dropped mine off this past Saturday!

How about everyone else? Long lines? Crappy machines? Particularly passionate individuals while you waited? Any predictions for how this all turns out this evening?

On the one hand, meh. On the other, they'll probably have this hacked in a week's time and then you'll be able to add whatever games you want, and in THAT case...maybe. Just maybe.

I don't even know what I'd want on here. Obviously FF7 since I've never played it. I'd take Twisted Metal 1 and 2. I hear Chrono Cross is great although I've never played it. I'd take Crash Bandicoot 1-3 (even though I own the HD remaster). Metal Gear Solid, absolutely. Jet Moto, sure, why not. I never played Parappa the Rapper but always heard it was good (did that need extra peripherals?) I know it won't come on it but I'd love to have NFL Xtreme again. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 would be nice.


I dunno. What other Playstation games were good? I feel like my collection back in the day wasn't very much. Didn't own (or even play) any of the RE or Silent Hill games.

Chit Chat / Do You Remember.....
« on: September 18, 2018, 05:37:42 PM »
Feel free to post your own "do you remembers" in here, whether it's "do you remember this movie" or "this scene" or whatever.

I'll start.

Hey, do you remember when TUFF was using real NFL player names occasionally, taking some 3rd or 4th stringers and using them for TUFF? Remember when BBB introduced off-the-field incidents and Mao Tosi died and there was a "story" about it basically in all the TUFF news? Remember when his family contacted Ben about it because they were understandably confused and horrified?

Man, the internet in its infancy was so crazy.

Pro Football / Peter Warrick Hall of Famers
« on: August 06, 2018, 11:53:36 AM »
I can't remember if I've introduced this concept in a previous time or not, but my friend and I used to have what we called "Peter Warrick Hall of Famers." These were NFL players that were never going to make it to the HoF, yet were starters for their teams (or others) consistently for several years before just vanishing into the abyss (draft busts usually don't count, partially because they're remembered just for being busts, partially because their time in the league is usually shorter).

Anyways, here's a few names for examples. Usually I do a "Peter Warrick Hall of Famer of the Day," but I'm not sure I feel like committing to that schedule, so I'll just start things off and we'll see how well this does. You guys feel free to add too! Doesn't have to be one a day, doesn't have to be daily. It's fun to remember "these guys."

 Edit: I'm compiling the posts after this one into, well, this one.

1. Curtis Conway (WR, Chargers, Jets)


2. Eddie Kenninson (WR, seriously, how did any of these Chiefs WRs keep their starting jobs for so long during this time? Snoop Minnis? Johnnie Morton?)


3. Jason Sehorn (CB, Giants, Rams)


4. Natrone Means (RB, Chargers)


5. Elvis Grbac (QB, Chiefs, Ravens)


6. Jeff Garcia (QB, 49ers, Eagles, Bucs)


7. Michael Westbrook (WR, Washington) AND 8. Stephen Davis (RB, Washington)


9. Kerry Collins (QB, Panthers, Giants, Titans)


10. Marc Bulger (QB, Rams)


11. David Woodley (QB, Dolphins, Steelers)


12. Ron Dayne (RB, Giants)


13. Robert Porcher (DE, Lions)


14. Adam Archuleta (S, Rams, Washington, Bears)


15. Marion Barber (RB, Cowboys, Bears)


16. Mario Manningham (WR, Giants)


17. Christian Okoye (RB, Chiefs)


18. Clinton Portis (RB, Washington, Denver)


19. Wayne Chrebet (WR, Jets)


20. Lofa Tatupu (LB, Seahawks)


21. Brian Westbrook (RB, Eagles, Giants)


22. Donnie Abraham (CB, Jets, Bucs)


23. Olandis Gary (RB, Broncos, Lions)


24. Aaron Brooks (QB, Saints, Raiders)


25. Bobby Hebert (QB, Saints, Falcons)


26. Deuce McAllister (RB, Saints)

We've waited 18 years for this, I'm giving it it's own thread.

This looks like everything I wanted it to be.

This was actually pretty funny. Thought you might appreciate it, Norm.

Chit Chat / Top 5 July 4th Movies
« on: July 04, 2018, 03:36:31 PM »
Lets do this:

#1 - Independence Day. Come on, wasn't going to say anything else.

#2 - Jaws. On July 4th, the beaches will be open.

Honestly that's all I came in here with, so, lets see....

#3 - The Patriot? Right? That's not a bad choice.

#4 - The Sandlot. You know the scene, plus, it's baseball. What could be more American?

#5- Born on the 4th of July. I've uh....I've never actually seen it, I just didn't want to use Live Free or Die Hard in the fifth spot.

Pro Football / Tie goes to the ballcarrier
« on: July 03, 2018, 01:25:15 PM »
You know, I was watching MLB Network a day or two ago, and they were reviewing a close call at third, whether Acuna Jr had gotten tagged while either stealing third or just stretching a base hit by his teammate by going from first to third, but I realized, and granted it's kind of similar to the "inconclusive" mandate of NFL replay, but what if there was simply a "tie goes to the ballcarrier" kind of thing?

I know the biggest complaint about the NFL is how offense oriented it is already, rules-wise (especially rules regarding WRs and QBs), but I wonder, in matters of, say, the Dez Bryant catch and what-not, if it's possible that simply having a "tie goes to the ballcarrier" rule would filter a lot of that out?

Was the QB's arm going forward when he fumbled or no? Too hard to tell? Tie goes to the ballcarrier.

Did he fully complete a catch? Just CAN'T make a decisive conclusion? Call goes to the ballcarrier.

Am I right, or is "tie goes to the runner" not quite as universally applicable as I think it maybe could be?

Console Gaming Discussion / N64 Mini Classic
« on: May 23, 2018, 12:05:43 PM »
https://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/japanese-trademark-filing-hints-nintendo-64-classic/

This isn't a confirmation, sadly, but it certainly makes it look a helluva lot more likely. The NES and SNES used the same internal software for emulation, essentially, so if this one uses that too it should be just as easy to hack as the first two, in which case, having just done the SNES, I would absolutely have to buy the 64 knowing I could add more games to it.

Chit Chat / The Life Thread
« on: May 14, 2018, 07:04:48 PM »
I actually thought about this earlier and just didn't do it, so I promise I didn't conceive of this just to brag. I just think it'd be cool to have a thread where we can talk about our life, either past, present or future (mainly past because I'm in this phase where I'm fascinated with American history, but more from ordinary people than like, watching documentaries with professional historians).

Anyways.

So, my contribution today is a "present" story than a past (earlier I'd thought about doing a "where were you during 9/11" thing, so that's more where my focus was in starting this).

Today, I got engaged. Um, again. But first time to my current girlfriend! And considering she's the first girl that I've dated and never broke up with, Im pretty confident this will stick. It'll be 2.5 years in June and everything's been great (I've had more than enough bad so I can easily recognise good these days), and that's that. So yeah.

Anyways, I think this will be a cool thread for life events and reflection or future plans. Ive never been to Michigan, I could listen to Norm spin tales about his college days in here. Hearing Crewe's stories from Texas and his many adventures. I enjoy Tider's stories about his family and I enjoy hearing his perspective from his Alabama roots. So hopefully we can all share here and, maybe one day no one will come to this place but all our tales will be here.

Chit Chat / 30 Days of Video Games Thread
« on: April 17, 2018, 12:00:40 PM »
Alright, I'm doing this. Lets hope I don't run out of ideas for all 30 days.

Let's start simple.

Day One: The First Video Game You Can Remember Playing

So, this isn't owning, this is playing, and it can be anything, whether it was Donkey Kong at the arcade or Donkey Kong on console, if it's a game that's on a TV that uses some sort of controller scheme, it counts. Even those little handheld Mattel ones from back in the day.

Anyways, the first game I can remember playing is from the Atari...2600, I believe? It was called "Freeway," and was basically Frogger, but with a chicken.

Console Gaming Discussion / MLB The Show 18
« on: March 09, 2018, 06:05:13 PM »

I've pretty much already decided to buy this since I skipped 17, which seems like a good idea because all the new gameplay and presentation stuff has sounded great. They finally revealed the new RTTS enhancements and I'm still good to go.

The fun part was the guy saying "in past years, you'd have good at bats and by the end of the game you'd have 600, 1000 points to just put in whatever stat." HAHAHAHAHAHA, I wish that had ever happened.

Baseball / 2018 Off-Season/Season
« on: January 12, 2018, 03:51:34 PM »
Guys, I can't wait. Already bought my ticket for opening day at Safeco. I said I wouldn't go to any games with visiting teams that I already saw last year, but I didn't make the schedule and I'm not missing Opening Day, so, Indians it is then.

That being said, as far as my actual team goes, I'm obviously liking the Yankees lineup, I'm just hoping them and the pitchers can stay healthy, and Tanaka can get off to a better start than last year.
