And...back to NeoGAF. Keep up the great posting guys!  
 
I am still confused as to how anyone would think it to be clever to laugh at (or question) someone else's personal tastes. And, yes, Trials HD absolutely belongs on my top ten of all time.   
 
Beachthunder: I would, but this was a straight copy/paste from my contribution over on GAF. Like I said, the whole deal was a five minute endeavor.

I just posted the following top ten games of all time over on NeoGAF. Might as well dump it here for memories sake. Granted, I took about five minutes to come up with the list, but sometimes I find those to be the most accurate.
 
1: Shenmue II
2: Mass Effect
3: Civilization IV
4: Metal Gear Solid
5: Trials HD
6: The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
7: Full Throttle
8: Red Dead Redemption
9: Freedom Fighters
10: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

Maybe instead of DLC they should focus on addressing ICS and the idiotic AI.

" @DukeTogo:On the month-to-month, yeah. The yearly subscription is supposed to be ad-free. I totally agree on XBL though. If I have a gold account, the least they could do would be tone the ads down a bit. Yuck. "

I have never understood this. I don't find ads on the dashboard disruptive at all. Hell, I hardly notice them. Its not like IGN where they hijack your entire background for a full page ad. Those little tab through menus minimize the ad effect. At the same time, some of the promotions I see are some I am interested in. I can't see how some people insist that ads on the Xbox are such a burden. 
 
On giantbomb though, I struggle with how they pitched the subscriptions as a way to focus more on content and less on ad tech, while at the same time they admit that ads will be a part of the site. I am tempted to throw them some money for sentimental reasons, but the lack of a detailed content plan on what will be available for subscribers is unsettling. I think they might have done better with a simple donate button. The whole ordeal seems to have a lack of planning behind it. 
 
If they came out with a rock solid plan and were not tip toeing around sensitive issues such as the bombcast, it would have been easier to jump in. Let subscribers have a small say in content. Let us vote on the next endurance run or something.

" 5 bucks a month for 8 hours of content seems like a pretty damn good deal to me.    Think of it like a Game rental. "
it's a good deal but they way they lied and then handled the backlash is disgusting. "
How did it go down? I missed the 'announcement' and the first several hours of the show. How did they lie?

That last line there seems to be more of a warning to encourage good gaming etiquette than anything. I'd love to see some of these matches with full commentary for sure.

One last check before I click buy. I swapped the case to the CM692 because it was a combo offer with the G.Skill ram. I threw in the i7 just to avoid confusion here. Am I good to go?

" That's a pretty good system right there. I'm the same motherboard except it uses an AMD chipset. The best thing is that whenever I decide to get that 6-core processor, I can. The Intel chipset motherboards I'm not so sure about. Maybe they can. Anyways, do you already have a processor because I don't see it on the list? "

Yes, I have an Intel i7 930. Picked it up from microcenter for 200 (in store pickup only).

" I would say the performance boost from the 5850 to the 5870 isn't worth the 200 dollars.  Just get a 5850 and if you need it crossfireX some shit.  By the time you need it, it would probably end up being the same price if not cheaper.  I picked up the 5850 7 months ago and can run anything on ultra at a suitable framerate. "

Thanks for the tip. I don't have the opportunity to upgrade much and the wife is on board with the 1200 dollar build here. I figure I'd jump in with the 5870 and enjoy the added longevity.

Thanks again. I just wish the egg combo'd those with something I actually needed. I suppose I can spring the extra 50 for it.
