Blind Guardian - At the Edge of Time

Well, the cover album isn't THAT great. But on the other hand, they didn't write the songs.

If covers determined album quality, Dance of Death would be one of the worst metal albums of all time. :P

Don't even think the stupid government will actually help the economy.
But helping the construction business to actually build some things (and thus employing more construction workes) does help the economy.

Don't worry, you'll see how our government will be a complete fuckup again for the nth time.

Or get a region 0 DVD Player. Problems solved for all. My friend had to get a region 0 DVD Player due to all the stuff he was getting that wasn't available in region 2. Meh, the region locking bullshit never made sense to begin with and Nintendo should be ashamed of themselves for being more tight on it. Sony on the other hand, region free for most games!
Most DVD players should have the option to set them to Region 0. But most of the time, this option is not explained in the manual. You could try to google a solution.

So how about a PS3? I mostly use that for DVD/blu-ray purposes.

Also, region codes are just lame. They where invented because cinema owners started whining about how people might import DVDs before the cinemas even got a chance to show the movie... but in reality, not too many people import DVDs anyway. And because of high shipping costs (and long waiting times) it might actually be cheaper to just go to the cinema anyway.

Well, the shipping of a single DVD in a case can still be fairly cheap. I'm sure the difference between a CD and a DVD isn't a whole lot.

And I think Sony wants to bring back region codes for newer games and/or the PS4. Lame, I say.

They do that, I will not pick up a PS4. Oh who am I kidding, I probably will get one anyway. With the WiiU's lackluster game line-up so far and whatever the hell Sony and Microsoft do, it looks like I'll be moving more and more to PC gaming for good.

Long enough indeed. Things have been pretty good - I now have a driving license and my own car. I'm in university studying International Relations. And I want to volunteer for the World Cup in 2014. Stuff stuff stuff

How are you peoplez? Was Clock Day a huge disappointment again?
I'm well thanks. Hoping to put the cricket team back to the top of the table today. We'll see how that pans out, though :)

Worcester Warriors? :P

This thread always needs more Sir-Nuts.

btw, is gfox still alive?

My life has been a bit slow right now. I did have the Manchester meet to look forward to next week but enthusiasm is starting to die out completely. You just can't organise an event without official support.

Messy organisation? I guess if everyone gathers in the same place at the same time is already a decent start.

As for Clock Day, I was hanging out with my friends instead of staying home for it so I missed out on most of it. No saves were claimed that day either.

I guess I was trying out the Co-Op mode in TF2. Pretty fun, but forgetting Clock Day was shameful!

As for jobs and such, any news?

It's not the covers, but the songs they chose and how they play it. Out of the whole discography I'd probably rate the cover album the worst. But it's still better than any Manowar album. :P

If the DVD has a region code that doesn't match: Tough luck. The BluRay standard supports a region code, but most of the time it's not implemented. Time Warner for example, doesn't implement a region code on their BluRay releases.

Well, the shipping of a single DVD in a case can still be fairly cheap. I'm sure the difference between a CD and a DVD isn't a whole lot.

But it still can be a hassle to buy DVDs overseas.

Hello Mr. Haggard! How's life up there in Germany?

Cold and rainy, what did you think? :P
Actually, it has been pretty hot last week (30°C and above), but now it's a bit colder.

I can see why you don't like the Phyrexia engine Magic was using but at least that's going to be rotated out. The most you have to worry about Innistrad's engines is transformation cards. I don't use any transformation creatures myself but I like how they work.

It's hardly possible, since PC gaming is already dead. :P
Besides, consoles will always be easier to use for gaming than PCs, so they are much more convenient. And thus, they won't fall first.

Was listening to: Mötley Crüe - Dr. Feelgood

It's funny how I've never really got into Mötley before, despite knowing them for a pretty long time. Also, ÃoeMLÃ"ÃoeTS.

Cold and rainy, what did you think? :P

I don't know, maybe sunny and warm for summer's standards? D:

Actually, it has been pretty hot last week (30Ã'°C and above), but now it's a bit colder.

That's borderline hot.

Here we are without a single raindrop for about 60 days. Nothing unusual, though the dryness starts to crack the land. And my lips as well.

Back to normal for you?

I guess. I hope, at least. Who knows how much university will demand from me in these following weeks.

I assume he doesn't even care about this place anymore.

We should have something similar to a bat-signal to call him whenever... we feel like :P

There's been a flu outbreak in Texas, I hope he's alright.

Messy organisation? I guess if everyone gathers in the same place at the same time is already a decent start.
Not messy, just not enough interest. Luis said that he'll probably run another meet in January in London. Keyword being probably...

Hmm, if about 10 other people show up, it should be worth it. Smaller crowds aren't bad at all.

As for jobs and such, any news?
Never really is. The country is full of bastards.

Time to start your own business. Video-game reviewer, perhaps?

A Twist In The Myth. It isn't bad, although it's pretty weak.
And yet I'd still give it 8/10.

I'd say 7/10. "Different" from what we'd expect from Blind Guardian. Also, they played here in Brazil a couple of months ago with Grave Digger as the supporting act. Nowhere nearby, dammit!

Well, you'll pass if you say "The English are just being cunts to most of South America" ;) What with the Falklands, or Las Malvinas and Julian Assange and anything else that can be thrown at us. Something will stick.

Ah, nowadays' subjects... Always good to have a discussion on. I guess the general agreement on the Malvinas thing is that Argentina is making an enormous unnecessary fuzz about it that should have never started whatsoever. Nationalist politics. The bastards!

And Assange should suffer some kind of "accident" soon enough.

Worcester Warriors? :P
No, the Warriors are my Rugby Union team, that I support. Cookley Cricket Club is my local village team, that I play for and do a hell of a lot for, besides.

Aside from only playing? Such as administrative stuff?

Eh? I could swear that the NG forums supported umlauts. Anyway, that was "Motley Crue", and the following one was "umlauts" with an umlaut whenever it fit (everywhere).

Thanks to Neil Armstrong. You were an inspiration, whether or not it's true, I really don't care, you gave me a dream and it's shaped my existence a little. RIP.

Coop tries to work out Aston Villa's problems, while congratulating:

I can't stand Mirrodin or any of the other Phyrexia etc decks. Ruined afternoons for me, that did...
I can see why you don't like the Phyrexia engine Magic was using but at least that's going to be rotated out. The most you have to worry about Innistrad's engines is transformation cards. I don't use any transformation creatures myself but I like how they work.

I might have liked that, had I been around enough to get the cards when they were available and in vogue. I'm spending all of my money on cricket atm, so not exactly rolling in it...

What I meant was: Must have been interesting to watch that in the changing room. Also, I thought Fergie IS a terrible cunt?
I wouldn't know - I've never met the guy.
Whenever I see him I think "Oh wow, what a cunt!" so he probably is one.

Good manager, not necessarily a nice person.

And now do it in a voice like this.
"Pyeongggggg Channggggg!"
?!?!
There's a link behind "like this": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9U1nuzn_A_Y

I think I need my brain flushing out now...

I'm sure that getting Hollywood celebrities to wade in has helped their cause so much!

I'm sure he would, if he would just leave the embassy ;)

Yeah, I do the scoring for the Saturday league second team (though I did it for the first team today - rained out) and arrange meetings, talk to the representatives of the playing fields association, whom we rent the pitch off of, that sort of thing.

I just pictured it as one hellish scream of feedback. So I was half right :P

Coop runs into squeaky bum time, as the teams below catch up to both of his Saturday cricket teams. 3 games left. Congratulations to:
Pokemonpoeguygcn: 15,000 Experience
DiMono: 35,000 Total Points

See, this is the problem with paying far too much attention to the weather yesterday morning and when getting home after the game gets called off, being distracted by The Dirty Dozen...
