yes, well, theyve been trying to put a stop to the used game market for awhile....this might be teh first, and biggest step =\

basically its "protection" for the game developers....well actually, for whatever company releases the games i guess. they look at it like this:

1 Person buys game new for $59.99. they let a friend play it. they let a 2nd friend play it. the owner then sells it back to game stop for $15 dollars. Gamestop sells it for $34.99 used.

Multiple people have now played it. And Gamestop has made a profit from it at least once(most retailers make $0.00 on brand new releases, which is why they try to make you buy all the ghey books, guides etc.).

The companies WANT that money. as far as they are concerned, they should have made $240 from the single sale of that game. That's what they will attempt to do....

It's a god honest ****ing joke. I will not buy any console that constrains us to new games only. **** that... they want me to pay $65? Better make it AMAZING.

No game is really worth that much at all.

nah man....i dont remember the last time i paid full price for any game.

if you want my honest opinion.....do PC gaming. Might take you awhile to get away from using a controller, but the graphics can be infinitely better, you can get almost ALL the same games with few exceptions(platform exclusives). And the prices are SOOOOO much lower with all the online deals you can get.
Steam is an amazing platform, and companies like amazon have digital downloads for GREAT prices. Sure the brand new ones are goign to be $40-50 still....but if you do what i do, and wait a few months, you can get awesome games for $15.

I mean, there's no "used game" market....but, with the prices so low, do you really care?

I know alot of people are hesitant to try PC gaming, but it really is the best thing out.

I would have to buy an amazing PC and **** then. I probably would do it, but I honestly have been shying away from video games lately. I get bored way too quickly. I prefer watching movies/shows and reading.

But I might still get a console just for the heck of it.

Lincoln was good, just a bit too long. I didn't fall asleep tho hahaAgreed, DDL is theee man though. My favorite part,
It was right after the revolution, right after peace had been concluded. And Ethan Allen went to London to help our new country conduct its business with the king. The English sneered at how rough we are and rude and simple-minded and on like that, everywhere he went. Til one day he was invited to the townhouse of a great English lord. Dinner was served, beverages imbibed, time passed as happens and Mr. Allen found he needed the privy. He was grateful to be directed to this. Relieved, you might say. Mr. Allen discovered on entering the water closet that the only decoration therein was a portrait of George Washington. Ethan Allen done what he came to do and returned to the drawing room. His host and the others were disappointed when he didn't mention Washington's portrait. And finally his lordship couldn't resist and asked Mr. Allen had he noticed it. The picture of Washington. He had. Well what did he think of its placement? Did it seem appropriately located to Mr. Allen? And Mr. Allen said it did. The host was astounded. "Appropriate? George Washington's likeness in a water closet?" "Yes," said Mr. Allen, "where it will do good service. The world knows nothing will make an Englishman **** quicker than the sight of George Washington." I love that story.

To me, the first 20 minutes were boring. I went on a few movie review sites and a lot of people had the same thoughts. I liked the acting a lot, but I just can't find myself watching a 2.5 hour movie on Lincoln after studying all that **** for awhile.

I didn't say players Dezz. I said great players.
I watched Phil Jackson play for years when Marv Albert referred to him as Phil "Action" Jackson. He was far from a great player.
You make a decent point about Lenny Wilkins, Torre and Larry but the other guys were not great players at all.

Usually, former players who had to overcome being less talented by paying the price with hard work through the system are in a better position to coach players.
Guys like Tommy Lasorda, Tito, Tom Coughlin etc... make better HC's or managers. The guys who had great talent by definition find it easier to excel and often have a difficult time coaching players who don't have the same talent.

Its not always true, but it usually is.

I'm coming around to Pizz's point of view. TAGF is becoming a friggin nightmare. You can't just talk about football honestly anymore.
There are these crazy Cultists and stalkers who pounce on anyone who even dares to suggest that Eli isn't the greatest player in the league and isn't a lock for the hall.
They jump into these threads calling everyone haters and threads always end up getting locked.

The friggin MB's are becoming a nightmare. Its supposed to be discussions about football. I guess there's nothing the Mod's can do about it. But the very reason I joined the MB, .....being able to talk about the Giants when I live far from NY, is now pretty much gone. Now I just have to live with these friggin punks.

The Giants MB was once a good place. This is no longer true.Everyone used to be all about debating and trying their best to come out on top, now its just name calling and snarky responses if two people dont agree.

Oh my God Dezz!
You can't be serious.

Kurri was a one dimensional player. A very good player without a doubt. But to say that Messier was "overshadowed" by Jari Kurri, along with your claim that it was "Gretzky's and Kurri's team", is nonsense.
Mark Messier was a superstar in the NHL long before he became a Ranger.

I have to apply the same theory to the old argument we had with Kase about Crosby being the most popular

I barely follow hockey at all and definitely could give a **** about the history of it.

I always heard Messiah and Gretzky, never even knew the name Kurri.

I did know Paul Coffey though

Morehead State
05-30-2013, 01:16 PM
Kurri was not a one deminsional player. He was just as good as Messier if not better during the Oiler years.
When Gretsky left, Messier was the undisputed leader of that team. It simply was Mark Messier's team.
I don't know how old you are or how old your were then, but you are so wrong about Messier its ridiculous.

When Messier was traded to the Rangers it was huge because one of the truly great players in the league was traded.

MattMeyerBud
05-30-2013, 01:16 PM
Read Dezz's comments about Messier from yesterday. Evidently in his little world of rainbow's and unicorns, he was nothing until he came to NY.

I think your both being a little extreme

I think his point was popularity wise, he def peaked once he came to NY

but while it was all about Gretzky and Messiah in Edmonton, Messiah was probably over shadowed. Jordan-Pippen wise

Its a tough job given the condition of the MB's right now.
The real problem is that you have one guy with several screen names. That emboldens him to push it because he knows if he gets banned, he can just come back as another poster. So fear of being banned doesn't enter into it. So he talks all kinds of crap.

It doesn't help that nobody really has no insight on general sports. God forbid we had any threads on other teams and their ****. It turns into a ****-fest right away with no valuable info.

listen...dont judge me...her and I are both pretty stupid when it comes to our relationship....we always kinda end up full circle and back together....and then we wont talk for months. lol

her and I are traveling to Ecuador in July cuz we're both in a wedding for a mutual good friend. We're the only other people going that we know, the rest are strangers! So it just made sense.....someone joked that we'd come back married also -__- I'd be ashamed of myself for letting it go that far lmao

Me and my future ex gf.
It depends on the life experiences. If you've been out on your own and she's still at her parents house, it might not be the best.
A guy once gave me advice when I was 28 and I way dating a girl who was 22. I was just divorced with 2 kids, one severely handicapped. So I had seen some ****. And she was just out of college. The guy told me....."you don't want to be with someone who's going where you've been".

In your case though...you seem pretty immature so SHE might be too old for YOU.


I crack myself up!

The only reason I say that, is because I was once banned for making a post trying to settle down all the "sky is falling" posters during the 2009 season. they said i was attacking other posters(even though i didnt use names). I mean, I did call "bad" posters out...but they didnt like that. lol

I stopped reading 420's garbage awhile ago and when he quotes me I never respond.

theres always going to be numbnuts, but it really bothers me when the "Whose the best poster" thread comes out and a lot of people mention him. that's when I know this place is not for me anymore lol

The moving and stuff is ridiculous. Too many locked threads.

no doubt. I'm just saying that he kinda changed that position, and created what is referred to as the Point Forward....something Grant Hill, and now Lebron both play as. Pippen was even more incredible than he'll like ever get credit for. Love that ugly *******!! lol

he was definitely a looker

I used to feel bad for him, because I felt that everyone picked on him. Please. He just doesn't know when to walk away.
There was a thread a while back, and we were arguing if the QB was responsible for the receivers YAC. And offffff course, he responded to my argument with a 7 paragraph analysis. Having not read even half of it, I said we'll just agree to disagree. He goes "thats fine, but can i ask u why?" LOL BECAUSE WE DON'T AGREE AND I KNOW WE WON'T AGREE. But I explain we just think differently on what YAC really means. AGAIN he ****ing types a novel and I said okay, agree to disagree. And he wouldn't let it go..
