I just had to lay waste to a bunch of spam posts that were clogging up the moderation queue, making it difficult to spot all the legitimate posts.
Seriously though, GFY spammers.
So as everyone except SouLThps knows, a lot of us are back playing MS at least a little here and there (today, not so little - ~4 hours, FML). The new guilds system on MS rewards a lot of things, like new recruits, levels, etc. One thing it does not reward is people who never sign in.
So there was a great purge. Try to imagine the mental image of a guy in exo-armor with a flamethrower torching space aliens, or perhaps something not entirely unlike this. Yeah, it was brutal.
We thinned out the numbers real good. Some were spared, though depending on how this system works out, they may not be. Anyone who was booted is automatically welcome back, for the simple reason that you get 500GP for every new invite. The person has to stay in the guild though, or they take all their earned GP ...

This coming Tuesday, the ModNation Racers demo is supposed to launch on PSN, meaning everyone with a PS3 will be able to get it and I'm assuming they'll be able to play online... so I'm thinking we should have a little party tuesday night with it. The PSN updates usually go live sometime in the afternoon, so let's say tentatively about 9pm EST? Feel free to RSVP in this thread if you like.
Also, I'm thinking about setting up a TF2 server temporarily... who would be down for that, and suggest dates please.

I've always been a huge fan of these third-person hack and slash, but does Dante's Inferno stack up to the more unique GoW franchise? Or even the Bayonetta, DMC games? Well in short it does and it doesn't. While the game is remarkable stunning in some areas, it falls short in a lot of categories for me anyway.
Boobies! Hahha no but really, just about anything you can think of is in the game, hell there is a demon who shoots demonic babies from her nipples, how much weirder could it REALLY get?
Fluid battle system, and I mean pretty darn fluid. I can chain so many combos together with ease and still not feel its a button masher, although after a while it will definitely feel like it.
Going through the 9 circles of hell is just hellacious! Seeing all these souls die endlessly is just a tad disturbing but makes...

Perhaps it's because I'm Australian, but the "cowboy" fantasy thing growing up was never really there - the only real exposure I had to cowboys was that my dad was a huge fan of Mel Brooks, so I saw Blazing Saddles at an age that was most likely far too early.
That lack of cowboy hysteria growing up didn't stop me from enjoying Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood though. Nope, what follows is an interesting story (even if a little far-fetched) that spans from the civil war onwards. The civil war parts are actually pretty cool - they show how fucked up it must have been for both sides, without taking the southern-apologetic stance that pisses everyone off. Nope, Barnsby is every bit the racist southern scumbag we all love to hate.
As a first person shooter, CoJBiB ain't terrible. It's not awesome, nor is it gorgeous for showing off the PS3's capabili...
