Rock Blog Monday 08/06/07

edited August 2007 in Announcements
What did you all do this weekend? I didn't so much of anything. I caught up on some movies I missed in the theaters (mainly as I am strongly opposed to going into movie theaters) like Hot Fuzz - which to the best of my knowledge is the result of someone breaking open my head taking a look inside and making a film that is a composite of everything I would like to see just so they could watch what my reaction was. If that really was the impetus behind the film I applaud them and I hope they find the resulting data fascinating (I and my girlfriend started gleefully jumping on the couch during some of the later scenes due to their fierce awesomosity.)

I also had a dream about reading the forums and finding the search button totally gone which resulted in 3000 new topics with the exact same title (I don't remember what the title was, but I am sure we can come up with a few probable offenders.)

Got rid of our first spambot today. Don't think he'll Dennis112 will be darkening our doorstep anytime in the near future. If anyone else like that shows up (and they will) let me know and I'll make sure it gets taken care of as fast a possible.

Blogs!

    Example 1 : What is the release date?

    Example 2: How much will RB cost?

    Example 3: Preorder bundles?

    In the past month there really has been a ton of info as well as plenty of video to pore over. If we released info every day, even every week it would be a mess and everybody would be sick of us. We're excited to be able to talk about stuff as well.

    People seem to forget E3 was only about 2 weeks ago, and that release is still quite a while to go

    lol, if only having a search field could prevent 3000 topics on the same subject. just wait for the uneducated masses.

    Nice blogs today, I really enjoyed them. I could not agree with Sasquatch more about the need for more Sam and Max games. Heathers bathroom tour was certainly nice, a lot of Johnny Depp though...

    I did absolutely nothing this weekend. I am going to see the new Bourne movie tonight, which I have heard is quite good. I have not gotten around to seeing Hot Fuzz, but my friend has it, so I'll be borrowing it from him before the summer is over, I've heard only good things about it, and I loved Sean of the Dead, so I really want to see it.

    I don't like people always asking for info, we actually got new info last friday aka post E3 interview with IGN, which was actually a lot better than I had hoped it would be, very informative and got a lot of frequently asked questions, aswered. I look forward to more info this month and in the next few months!

    :eek: :(

    That makes me a sad panda.

    But its weird because just two minutes ago I was watching Hot Fuzz with my friends.

    Its such an awesome movie. Shawn of the Dead was amazing as well.

    Hey the mere destruction of that spambot makes up for any lack of news.

    I think that spambot had some pretty good deals...

    Why is everyone spelling Shaun of the Dead wrong? It's "Shaun," not "Sean" or "Shawn."

    Sorry, that just bugs me. Haha.

    Oh, and Edgar Wright.. the guy who directed and helped write Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz isn't doing Run, Fat Boy, Run, either..

    Such simple questions. You know the answers to them, Sean! Could you at least give us some clues? Like, 1-18-08 style. (If you dont know what it is, dont bother asking, if you know what it is, awesome). We just want some simple info!

    I wish it was 01-18-08....it looks completely badass.


    I also wish it was that date that Rock Band comes out... oh what date is that? Hmm? Little help Sean?

    It better not come out 1-18-08, that'd be like, LATE! I'd like to see a 09-02-07 release!

    I meant it to come off as that I hope it was 1-18-08 or that date that Rock Band comes out, but no one knows what date that is and hoping Sean would throw out a freebie.

    Hot Fuzz is indeed awesome. Great movie for freshing up your Breetash (British... I just like to spell stuff weird... like geetar) accent.

    Then, the people at Harmonix would call YOU: Reepah of Honah!

    =o ...u wouldn't want that, now would you?... o=

    Working near Cambridge (actually near Concord), I hear the english tongue get slaughtered all the time! =S

    "I pahked thah cah at hahvahd yahd. Yah bahstahd. "

    You see?... talking like that on forums are bad and could backfire!

    I'm living that nightmare right now!!

    Let's blame Harmonix for an awesome show at E3 which brought 50 billion ppl here.

    My weekend consisted of my Sunday afternoon volleyball and checking out The Bourne Ultimatum. It wasn't bad, good action. Defintiely see it if you enjoyed the other ones. Oh, and I found this nice bar on the lake that I get miles at for being a patron - through my United Miles plan-e-o. I've been there twice now, once over this weekend. Got my group to pay me in cash and I put everything on my tab :D

    There's this persona named lithium..something. I think he's a spambot ;)

    SXRD, nice! It's still the best picture technology out there. And, welcome to the club. I bought mine this time last year, right before football season started (and I watched the Colts win the Super Bowl on it, WOOHOO!). As an Indy native, I was pleased. :p
