No I haven't I'll be picking it up later this week for sure though. Smash has been dominating my wii experience for the last 2 weeks. If you aren't enjoying it, pop a game cube controller in. Makes all the difference.

flamethrower at the pelican FTW. I snag that carry it with me then drop it when i need to fight up close, then i use the sword and rocket launcher like you said. The FT is amazing at killing Pure forms of any kind though.

A little weird since both bodies he took over were not Galifreyians.

Well as the doctor stated in the 90's movie, hes only half gallifreyan or something like that. :P The master figured it out because of the retinal structure of the doctors eye.

Yah that was the plot for that 90's movie, I watched it about 4 months ago on youtube.

Speaking of old series, I have only seen the first 10 stories with the very first doctor. I believe I got to the sensorites. Then they all got deleted. Sidereel hasn't updated them and I can't seem to find them anywhere. DVDs/videos are not available in stores or on ebay. Anybody have an idea where I could watch these.

Have they mentioned the bees thing before?? I thought that was the first time.
Well there are only 2 regens left for the doctor, so if you think about it, his song is coming to an end. :-\

It will be obsolete but not the worst(and I can deal with that, obsolete doesn't mean bad just not top of the class, also Not every component is the best I'm at the 3rd best processor and the 3rd best graphics card, but these will last another 2 years easy), and I expect to upgrading the graphics card every 2 years.

As long as you keep your rig up with the times it will not degrade, and thats what I love about Gaming PC's they are designed to be ripped up every year and reassembled to allow it to run the next group of games. The big jump will be when the NEXT Gen comes out and everything will need to be replaced :-X That should not be for at least another 3-4 years. By then alien ware will buy back all the used components and old laptop, that should give me about a quarter of the next computers price taken off. :P

I love how Ps3 has put out keyboards and mice for their system. If Microsoft was smart they'd do the same. The precision is just not even comparable to an analog. Especially with their Halo wars RTS game coming out this summer/fall. I always wonder how those C and C tiberium wars players even play on the xbox 360.

So lately I have been getting more and more into PC gaming, Mice are much more accurate and instead of using just 4 fingers on a console, your using at least 8 on the pc. Reactions are faster, and aiming is soo much easier. The Game play is faster and more intense. You don't get the 12 year olds playing on there because they cannot afford a 2.5-5 thousand gaming PC. LAN tournaments are also big and the competition is just so much more intense.

So I have been looking around and I found my PC the alien ware 15x
heres my custom specs

Price with shipping and Alien armor case around 2.6 thousand dollars Mind you this computer will last me 4 years(before upgrade then possibly 6 or 7) and then is upgradeable unlike other laptops. Most laptops have an integrated Graphics card but because its a gaming system I can freely upgrade for a small price in 4 years.

So I grabbed a Razer Lachessis mouse the best gaming mouse out on the market at the time.
AND this PC will even play CRYSIS the most intensive game of all time :o

I should be able to afford this just before the end of summer break this year.(wish I could get it sooner but I dont make much)
Also since this is one of the most powerful PC's out there I won't have any limitations to what I can do with it. :o
