What are your biggest gaming regrets?
Mine is easy. Back when I first caught pokemon fever, my brother had a clear gameboy pocket.

Somehow he managed to talk me out of my snes and all my games for it. I have f zero, a couple of mario games, mario paint, double dragon, tetris attack, and some others. The gb pocket quit working a couple of years later.

I would love to still have my snes :(

What are you doing RIGHT NOW?!?!
Just finished watching Hunger Games for the 2nd time.

Thinking about starting "The Sims 2" for DS in a bit. If not that, I am not sure what else.

What consoles are plugged in? And what games are in them?
Let's see here. In the den (where we spend most of our time) the ps3 is plugged up to our old 25" sanyo. I believe Battlefield Bad Company 2 is in it last i checked.

In the living room, the N64 and Gamecube are hooked up to my 43" Samsung plasma tv. The Gamecube has Super Mario Sunshine in it I believe. The N64 has Pilot Wings in it.

The PS2 has nothing in it, but it is in the bedroom on anotherold 25" tv. For good measure - DS #1 has Assassin's Creed Discovery in it (just beat it this morning),and DS #2 has Pokemon White in it. Nothing else is hooked up, or hasa game in it that I can think of.

Not a problem, Daniel :)


Faultypuppy - received, thank you!


We are right at that magical 40 number! Now if I was just more than 25% done counting :lol: my goal is to make it to 50% over this weekend :yeah:

Still plenty of time left, keep them coming :)

How many hours have you spent on your 64?
wonderful topic!

I will do some estimating here.

Perfect Dark - 200+ hours
Goldeneye - 200+ hours
Ocarina of Time - 150+ hours
Mario 64 - 100+ hours
Mario Kart - 100+ hours
Diddy Kong Racing - 50+ hours
Road Rash - 50+ hours
Assorted THQ and Acclaim wrestling games - 300+ hours (WcW/nWo World Tour, Revenge, Wrestlemania 2000, Warzone, and Attitude)
Pilot Wings - 50+ hours
Assorted other games - at least 300+ hours.

That there is 1500 hours at the least, and I am truthfully being VERY conservative. I will say between 1500-2000 hours. Amazingly, I have over 2500 on my PS3, with time consuming giants like - Bad Company 2 (450+), Battlefield 3 (350+), Fallout 3 (200+), Fallout New Vegas (200+), Oblivion (200+), NCAA Football (300+), Saboteur (100+), GTA IV (100+), and Assassin's Creed 1/II/Brotherhood (200+), as well as good time spent on Uncharted, Resident Evil 5, and Red Dead Redemption.

Oh how the time flies when your having fun ;)

Hurt and Heal - Modern Hero Edition
Credit goes around a bit here on this one. The idea for a hero hurt and heal stemmed from member, Bane. While consulting with bluedogrulez on the list of heroes provided by Bane, he proposed a 3 part series. Last month was "Retro Heroes", this month is "Modern Heroes", and the finale will be the top 10 from both squaring off against each other. When BDR and I hit a wall of expanding the list, floorcat provided some much needed additions. Thanks to all of you :yeah:

This month, we are sticking with the same rules as last round.. If you post, you must wait either for 2 other members to reply OR one other reply and 24 hours having past since that reply, before posting again. We hope this will allow more members to enjoy this round of Hurt/Heal.

Now for the typical rules:
HURT does -2HP damage. HEAL increases HP by +1HP. All contestants start with 20HP. You can post after another user has posted (there's no time limit). But.. you cannot heal a contestant above 30HP. If you kill a contestant you can use a SUPERHURT in your next post, which does -5HP damage. If you kill a contestant with a SUPERHURT, you don't get another SUPERHURT for that kill. Lastly, alt accounts are NOT allowed in these games. If you're suspected of using an alternative account here you'll be suspended or banned!

If anybody is still confused about how to play. You copy the contestant list below. Then state who you are hurting and healing. Then paste the list and adjust the numbers accordingly. As contestants get killed off, their names should be added at the bottom along with the place they finished in.

Alright, Let's get started!

Written in the Scars
Lucky ducks! :lol:

No scar to show forthis one, but I managed to tear my rotator cuff on my left shoulderback in 2008. It took 11 months to heal, but at least it did. They said surgery was the only way for it to heal, but they were wrong ;)

No doubt, bdr!

The HVAC worker's bandaid of choice is duct tape! Works great :lol:

Written in the Scars
I've been enjoying the stories so far :yeah:

Cooper, that botched gainer sounds terrible :(

I had forgotten another small scar. The front of my left forearm has a dime sized patch of slightly darker skin. My sophomore year I was working the concession stand during a basketall game for ffa class. I wasmaking popcorn. Somehow I overfilled the oil. I went to pour some out, not realizing my arm was below. Just a little dab hit me,but wow did it burn :lol:

Red: noble of you to donate plasma!

Cabanon, I am starting to think that the chin is a common place to get a scar.

DeeMoney, ah yes, the wonderfull throwing star incident :lol: it stabbed it to the back of my heal. It went up the buttom, but just inside the skin on the back. It was a decently thick star, which added to the pain ;)

I should post a pic of the star and the kama for kicks. The case for the kama was cut through where it sliced me. You can see exactly how far it went it :lol:

Written in the Scars
Great replies, Andys :lol:

DeeMoney, it is odd how our scars locations are rather similar - beside eye, chin, forearm, and thigh. I use my goatee to cover my chin scar.

Bdr, yeah, thought it could be kind of gory :lol: guess we should leave photos out ;)

This time around I want to know: How did you get your scars?

We pretty much all have at least a few. Most come with in interesting story, so let's here them.

When I was maybe 5, I got 4 stitches on the outside edge of my left eye. My brother was playing "baseball" with a piece of my broken swing set and a soccer ball. He told me not to walk behind him when he was swinging. I didn't listen. Needless to say, I should have. I took a hit from the metal pole, and now have a small c shaped scar beside my left eye.

When I was about 8 or 9, I was playing captain hook\peter pan with another kid in the neighborhood. The movie "Hook" had just come out. I was Captain Hook, being chased up the tree, by Peter Pan. Somewhere between 25'and 30'up, the branch holding most of my weight snapped. I tumbled backwards out of the tree, flipping like a pinball and split my chin open on a branch. It got me 8 stitches and a sore knee. Looking back, it could have been a lot worse.... Like a broken neck.

In about 2005 or so, I got a healthy gash on my left outer thigh. I collect weapons as most of you know. I had just purchased a new pair of razor sharp kamas. For those of you who don't know, kamas are basically small sickle shaped knives. I was tinkering with them, and had them held under handed. I went to put them up, and took a couple of steps. My arm had turned just enough to angle the blade towards my leg. It cut about 1\3 of an inch deep, and about 5 inches long. I could see the muscle underneath, but miraculously very little blood somehow. Ruined a great pair of khakis in the process :lol: I opted for no stitches on this one, and frankly the scar looks better than the stitched ones.

On the back of my left heal, you will find a unique small triangular entry wound. I acquired it is 2008. I had a bag of weapons in front of my couch. A very large and heavy throwing star was in a case in the side pocket. The phone rang, and I hopped up to get it. I lept over the bag, slightly clearing it. My foot slid down the side, running into the star. An entire point of the 5 point star went into my heal. It was pretty painful, again no stitches.

My most recent and gruesome came about a year and a half ago. I used to instal hvac systems a few years ago. My old lead man and I were adding a unit to my in laws house. We had just finished, and gathered all our trash into large condenser sized box. These boxes are about the size of a stove. It was full of old insulation, and old duct work. It had all been flattened out, and a piece was overlapping the top edge of the box and angling downward. I am a fairly strong individual, and was carrying the box on my shoulder to the truck. I got to the truck, and leaned over the edge to drop the box into the truck bed. I let go and the box dropped. The angled piece of flattened duct gouged a nasty wound on the back of my forearm. It was jagged, wide, and deep. It was bleeding badly all over the place. Left a nasty scar, with no stitches.

Those are my major ones. I have dozens of little ones all over my knuckles and finger from tiny sheet metal cuts from the hvac job. The only 1 that gave me any real issues is that a piece of duct sliced a part of my tendon on my right pointer finger.

Anyhow, if you have a scar or scars with an interesting story I would love to hear about it :)

Hey guys :)
Welcome back, man! I have been wondering how you were doing. Hope you are able to stick around for a while :yeah:
