Black for me. 
 
The white design is just too bright to look at comfortably. I like how clean the white design is, but the eye strain isn't worth the trade off.

Avatar was bad. The story was terrible. The dialog was cringe-worthy. The characters where generic and had zero development. It was a vehicle for Cameron's special effects display. Was Avatar nice to look at? Sure. Do I care if I ever see it again? No. It is a very divisive movie. Amazingly, some people think it deserves any of the praise it is getting. I'm glad Ryan didn't care for Avatar. I find it interesting that Jeff doesn't even care to see it. Their dismissive attitude toward Avatar makes me warm and fuzzy inside, but that is probably because I agree with them. Best part of all of this... It is all just opinion and isn't worth anymore than the weight you give it.

The control scheme for AC and AC2 really is one of those things where you have to get back into the groove. I got smacked around some at the start of AC2 until I remembered, "Oh, riiiiight... This is how I play this game!" Glad to know I'm not the only one that has to re-acclimate themselves to this style of combat.

To be fair we don't know much about what Moneypenny did in her free time.

Just to echo what Semition is saying, yes. I beat ME1 two times on the same career save file. When importing into Mass Effect 2 it showed both game clears even though I only had the one save. I assume that BioWare will keep the same game save import feature in ME3. "If it ain't broke..."

  Yeah, that SSFIV box art is garbage.

Might check this out when it hits the discount bin, but it doesn't look like a $60 purchase. Jeff, if the framerate is fixed in the PC version can we get another short QL? I'd pick it up for sure if it handles better on PC.

Looks like a fun game for chilling out with some friends online (or local if it has it). I doubt single player would be as much fun, but I could be wrong. I do love some Civilization Revolution and this might scratch that itch.

If it makes you feel better Brad, your enthusiasm for Nuts & Bolts is what made me finally pick it up last year... that and the $20 sale price at Best Buy. :)

Lexington, KY USA
I'm at work on the University's network atm. I'll try it at home on my 20mbps connection later today.
