I always just force a trade of our 2nds (since we don't have them anyways) for their 1sts.

Edit:

Also, the Ellis and Harden (and Aldrich whom I forgot to include) both work, but the Gerald Wallace trade also has to be forced (I figure it's fine to do so since it's an actual rumor).

Sweet, I'll have to try that

I bought that new Medal of Honor game yesterday. It's short, the multiplayer is full of annoying snipers and the guns not having recoil feels so cheap and unrealistic. For a supposed "reboot" it falls so short of COD it's not funny.

:o

Might as well make a flesh colored Wii controller to go along with it.


* Had to watch it again because I couldn't believe how ridiculous it was. I don't even like sharing controllers with ppl because of germs. Having to put my mouth on a controller that has been down someones pants seems like something off fear factor to me. I think i'd rather eat a bug. I guess it'd depend on the bug and the person that had the controller down their pants..
Regardless, WTF kind of game is that?

its the kind of game that makes me wish I knew more women like that in the trailer...

on a side note, why is eating bugs a big deal? lots of protein and some are delicious. we imported some "panacea" ants from china once, they were pretty delicious even though they did nothing for my asthma or scoliosis.

It's innovation, my friend.

Seems more like something you'd pull out after a couple of bottles of whiskey

I saw a couple of them popped up for the DS recently, it inspired me to go back and play the original Dragon Warrior. How are the more recent Dragon Quests, i haven't touch one since Dragon Warrior 3 sadly.

I've been hardcore Mass Effect and Parasite Eve. Normally I go for traditional turn based RPG's, but I'm getting pumped for 3 installments of Eve and Mass Effect.

I was picturing a live cockroach or some type of grub you'd find under a rock.

I am now going to be suspicious of the intent of anyone drinking wiskey near a wii.

They're not bad. I prefer the console versions, more difficult.... but the old school turn based RPG's are my faves. Dragon Quest IX is probably the best on the DS, lots of things to do in that one.

Also a fan of the Tales series, the gameplay in those are excellent too.

I need to buy Final Fantasy IX again... probably my favorite of the series. VII, X and XII were all good too though.

Don't know if this counts, but has anyone played any of the older Fallout games? Fallout 2 is pretty epic if you're into that sort of game.

In the WCF I eliminated Portland on the road with Martell getting his revenge.
8min quarters - 67pts 3rbs 23-40 fg 16-24 3pt

Before that game he was 14-45 3pt in 6 playoff games.

Next I get to take on the Heat in the Finals. Their starting lineup is Chalmers/Wade/Lebron/Bosh/Curry haha. Time for Beasley light to up Lebron.

In My Player it's year two and I'm on the wolves. We got this rookie, Timmy Gilmore.... I LOVE This kid!

H'es 6'10" 267 PF. 80 overall rating. He has a fantastic mid-range jumper, dunks the ball under the basket, and a sweet turnaround post shot. A pass to him is basically an assist. Love got injured and I was worried, Timmy was already hurt when I got on the team but his numbers were impressive so I looked forward to playing with him. About a week after Love went down, Timmy came back and go the start and now I hope Love comes off the bench because this guys is WAY better.

I no longer feel like I have to carry the entire offense. Timmy and I are two towers that destroying every front court we come across. I see championship rings in our future for sure.

(Haha, looking at the player history, looks like the suns drafted him at 6 but traded him to the wolves because I requested Wes Johnson. I made that request near the deadline. After that I asked for a trade again so they traded a future all-star PF to make me happy yet they had to trade me to Minnesota a month later. There fans have to be pissed!)
