Thats what I was thinking. You mind doing audiofiles too, though? Also, no killing the floating snails, I need that achieve too. And leave the toilet seat down.

I gotta work late tonight so I probably won't be on until way past Boguesy's bedtime... around 11ish EST. Also, I broke my pair of glasses last Monday. My replacements should arrive tomorrow. The last few days I had to resort to wearing my prescription sunglasses during my xbox sessions. No Dakar, I did not have Corey Hart music playing in the background.

Nobody ever mentions my legendary sexual prowess.

Sounds like a plan , I only have 9 audio files, and I also need both the killing / non killing snails achievements , let's set the man date for 7pm sharp

I do but for some reason it didn't record last week's episode. Don't want to take that chance again. If it's recording when I get home then I'll jump online. If not, then I'll see you at midnight.

I'm in the big, dark time-sink that is known as Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. Pretty sweet game, but it's making my 360 jealous.

It's too bad they don't have that for the 360.

At least with my iMac I can enjoy the game in HD resolutions, not to mention it's, uhh, cheaper to get PC games. The iMac does get hot enough to fry an egg after a long gaming session though.

Before you know, it's gonna be the 10th and all you nerds will get your Fatty back.

It doesn't run at full iMac resolution (1680 x 1050) but still looks great at 1280 x 768.

I'm so used to it that I have the exact opposite situation. I'm fine with SD and absolutely amazed when I get to play at 1080p.

Yeah, sure, though 6 is unlikely. I've been working overtime, so I'll give you an update later when I figure out how late I want to stay.

BTW, this is the most cursed gaming experience I've had. I did the Vidmaster Classic achievement, and it didn't give it to me, probably because I used the horn in the warthog.

I'm off work today so let me know when this meetup will take place. It shouldn't take too long with 3 people on easy difficulty. We'll use a guide this time for the audio logs. Remember, we need to replay all 3 flashback levels + Data Hive.

Yup, don't use it. They confirmed if you use the horn, it won't count. Haha. What a waste of time.

BTW, this 3 hr time zone difference is killing me. I feel I can rarely play with you guys anymore since I can't get on till at least 8pm my time. East coast time zone sucks.

Yep, east coast time zone sucks. Wait, wait (remembers he's in an eastern time zone),... no it's west coast time zones that suck.

Central is where it's at - you can watch TV on the east and west channels and see shows before and after your time. Eastern is cool too, if you miss something on TV you can watch it on the west coast channel at a later time.

Newbie Xbox 360 question? How many people are you limited to on your friends list on Xbox Live? I probably won't hit it, so I don't have to worry.

The reason our scores were so low on that last pic was because you & I drove mongoose through the whole level. (Notice how we had the fewest deaths.) Almost all of my kills came at the very end when we were guarding the base.

p.s. - I need to find my capture card so I can post a vid of last night's tea-bagging orgy.

Settle down, Nancy, no one cares. You guys all has scores in the tens of thousands, I managed one barely in the thousands.
