utter ignorance/stupidity/lack of common sense...

oh dear lord...now a class action suit in the works against nintendo for the wii-mote, because these morons are too stupid to hold on to the controller. im sure these are the same idiots that sue for stuff like spilling hot coffee on themselves and/or suing fastfood for making them fat... i can probably go a whole two hours of intense racquetball and never come close to losing the racket swinging it at full speed, with or without the strap :roll:

when will it stop!? :microwave: :roll: :lol: :P

Up here racquetball has been "squashed". Canadians, at least here in the Toronto area, have replaced totally by squash. They're similar, but not the same. Squash racquets are longer with a smaller hitting area, the ball is smaller and harder, and the court lines are not the same.

Regarding the Wii, have any of y'all bought one?

But no HD!! The Horror!!

Actually I think the Wii would be pretty cool. I just worry about game selection once the excitement of the innovative controls wears off. Nintendo markets to the kiddies. I do miss the Zelda games though and the new one looks very nice!

On another note, Gears of War is simply stunning! The 360 is starting to hit its stride graphically.

havent played tfc in a month, if not longer. join a random server that seems to have a little balance for a rusty ole player...not too many bots, and not full of those 'leet' types. find out it has the hook mod, but whatever. after a map some knob starts with that "i think boat has aa"..."youre such a cheat"..."youre the worse cheat ive ever seen". the boob tries to vote kick me. eventually leading to some chit about him being a GM (whatever the fook that is...general manager?) and stating that he's gonna get my steam id permanently banned... :roll: suggested that he spec me and offered to record a demo, shortly after, he left. :roll:

the whole while, all this kid did was use the skill-less hook mod to get up on the battlements/grate so he could skill-lessly pipe and camp the spawns.. :roll: :lol:

411 tfc servers when i updated; probably 50 of which showed people on; probably half of those were more than 50% bots or greater; 25% were 24/7 maps (usually 2fort or dustbowl). the last time i played before this, i got harassed on 60% of the servers i connected to for stoopid bs. and they probably wonder why they cant maintain connections and have to play with bots...

still had fun though...after he left we got the server almost full and noone else complained (he was the only one anyhow). and stayed there half the nite :tfsol: :pbt:

Man, I played on Drippy's last night for the first time in a while. Work always gets in the way of trying to have some fun ;) I did pretty damn good. And I didn't kill myself. I need to stay away for months at a time and then play 1 game 8) Hope everyone is doing good.
