There is a website you can access from the computers in that game that shows the locations of all the pigeons.

Thanks I didn't know that...poor pigeons, I'm a comin for yers! I like doing the stunt jumps as well.

A couple of years ago the BBC did a programme to find Britain's greatest ever designs...you could vote on the BBC website. Grand Theft Auto and Tomb Raider were in the top ten alongside the Mini and Concorde.

So, I was bored, and I'm kind of on a sandbox game binge, right now. I went to the store and bought Saint's Row, which cost $17.99. I load it up, and they gave the disc for Saint's Row 2, which cost, like, $60.

I've become a big fan of The Angry Video Game Nerd
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Well, it's good, but I have no idea who I am, why I'm British, or what's going on.

It's OK, you've just turned into me. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

I think Zankou's trying to avoid being quoted in the quote out of context thread.

If you would prefer that I be verbose in my allocution, I would most certainly be happy to oblige you, my dear chum. You see, it's just that I haven't had the time or inclination of late to make long, loquacious, eloquent posts.

I, too, have recently developed a penchant for watching videos of James Rolfe cussing the shit out of antiquated video games, though it serves little purpose as I will likely never play any of them anyway. There is something addictive about the videos.


Hip hip, cheerio, wot.

Hey everybody,
For online games why doesn't everybody put [FSM] (for Flying Spaghetti Monster) in front of their names so we know when we are playing fellow pastafarians.

I'm [FSM]WARPIG on battlefield 1942 and halo
You've filled his house with things of gold
While handing crumbs to the old and poor
And then you preach about being pure
And wonder why we're laughing
In your old way you're trying to find us
But we can't follow what's behind us
Too much blind faith, it will blind us
Though sometimes it's a blessing

But I remember when I still embraced you
A little prayer would ease my mind
'Til I saw that you hide from the misery outside so I left you behind
-Steppenwolf, From Here to There Eventually

That was actually a spot-on description of my relationship to Rolfe's oeuvres. Very well put. :)

Also, you should all play the Battle for Wesnoth. (http://www.wesnoth.org) It's free software and all! :) Someday soon I'll be good enough to dare start playing it online...
