BIOSHOCK UP THE ASS!
August 21st 2007, 18:41 CEST by Dumdeedum

Quoth Wikipedia:
BioShock is an action-adventure, survival horror first-person shooter video game by 2K Boston/2K Australia (previously Irrational Games.)[5]

So now you know.  There's lots of other details, plot and stuff, but mostly we're here because it's one of our "event games", a game everyone buys and then we play it together and compare notes and spoil the plot for each other and so on.  There's also a fair chance that either Bob, Gaggle or Hugin will decide they hate it and everyone else will insult them for it.

Hey, Matt. 160GB of music* for cheap!

**not even a referral link. I could've.

Yot, transfer your songs to a PC and use QTF. Each song is fixed in like 6 seconds a pop.

That could read: "Reboot into Windows…", etc., right?
Or even "start Parallels…", etc.?

I don't mean to be snarky, they're honest questions.

Gabe must dress like a terrorist when he flies, or it's a new rule. I never had to turn off my DS or my Librie when I flew.

They tell you to turn off ALL electronic devices during takeoff and landing. You can use them during the rest of the flight (phones have to be set to "airplane" mode or something). I know this because I just flew, and because every time I fly I find myself imagining a short film in which a child turns on his DS during takeoff and causes the entire plane to explode in a giant fireball.

I'm fun to sit next to on planes.

I've never heard of 'Airplane' mode.  How is it different than 'my cell phone is turned on' mode?

jj, well, there's one big difference. In "cell phone is turned on mode" the cellphone is, well, on, and in airplane mode it's… off. But you still have access to media playback, calendar, even sms'ing that'll get queued into the outbox. Most of the functionality, with zero emission. Hooray!

It turns off radio functions.

Yeah, it's as if you didn't have a SIM card in... oh wait, you don't have those. Or do you? I never quite bothered to figure out how cell phones work over there.

Some do, some don't. In Canuckistan most of them don't except for Fido.

Yep, basically "airplane mode" just turns off any sort of transmission from the phone so you can still use all of the other functions.

Just to bring these two threads together, I consume the vast majority of my books in audiobook format. On an iPod. There's a huge public library near me that carries books on CD, so I go there, check some out (unabridged, of course, abridged audiobooks suck), rip them, and return them. This lets me read during time that's normally wasted (say, an hour to an hour and a half round trip commute each weekday) or to multitask (like working out or mowing the lawn). It's the best way for me to read.

And as far as audio vs. print goes, I'd put my comprehension and retention of an audiobook up against any paper book that I've read. It's actually often better. The only limitation is that it obviously doesn't work well for books that have graphics, charts, tables, pictures, etc. So I read the paper version of those.

Listening to audiobooks is not reading, don't call it that.

The differences are trivial and it's easier to type. And I guess I shouldn't ask my 3-year old daughter if she wants to read a book tonight? I should say "would you like to listen to me read a book out loud?"

You should say "Do you want daddy to read TO you?" Seriously, eyes and ears are different organs.

But yeah, it's not a big deal. I suppose I am being an ass.

Audiobooks are highly inefficient. I can read a book in 2-3 hours that takes 10+ hours for a narrator to read to me. Also, I'm not 3 anymore, I can read my own books now.

It isn't a Fallout game unless I use my pickpocketing skill to place a ticking dynamite bomb into the pockets of an 8 year old boy.

I read faster than I listen, too, but try doing it while driving, working out, or mowing the yard. I read paper books, too.

Sweet.  This has been some super mega-efficient reading.  Now on to Greek tragedies.

Greek tragedies are basically the same thing, only with far more bastard children.

And don't forget the incest. There's always incest in Greek tragedy.

Reading to kids is different. Speed of intake of information is not the primary factor of enjoyment for them.

But for me, I'm usually consumed by the desire to know what happens next, dammit, and I thus want to find out as fast as possible without actually just skipping to the end.

I found the ending to be a bit too Japanese/Southpark.

Also, why on Earth does *** invite you to kill him and even hand you the killing instrument? Made no sense.

Don't all those audiologs you find basically say "Mess with me, and I'll rip you apart!"? So that choice of him seemed a bit odd. Maybe he was getting tired?
