This game is freaking tough. I remember a lot of the stuff from back then, but how in the hell did young kids make it through this entire game back then. I don't necessarily mean tough as in the bosses and enemies are hard to defeat. But there's so many secrets and hidden things, I don't know how...

Anyone else thinking about going? I'll be honest, I'm considering it. I don't listen to "rap music" now and I'm not even a big concert fan. I don't think I've ever been to a concert. But back in the day when the Hot Boys made it big and were representing New Orleans was a fun time in my pre/early...View Topic - Replies (10)

Our league has been doing auction drafts for a few years, but we always did them online. It made it pretty easy to keep track of what players were off the board, rankings of the available players, etc. This is the first time we will be doing one that is not through a website; it will be live and...

Whether it be from the US or another country? Now that everyone knows the destruction it would cause after seeing it before, do you think anyone will do it again? I think it's highly unlikely from any of the big nations due to the whole MAD philosophy. There's a chance you could see some craz...View Topic - Replies (28)

It was obvious. Any time someone posted a negative experience about their shopping on the site, he chimed in with a stupid remark, made SOLELY to trigger the thread and the other posters in it. And add in comments like, "More like Amazon CRIME day, lol," and by this forum's guidelines, he's flaming....

There are sites out there that allow one to watch tv shows, movies, etc. on your computer. These are not things like Netflix, HBO GO, etc. They are more in line with the stream sites that people use to watch pay-per events. I don't want to post a link because I think it is bannable. What is the ...

I don't have the best credit score currently, but I want to fix that. I've got student loans and a couple credit cards on there. Car loan is fully paid off. As of right now, I can pay off the two credit cards in full (about $3000 total). Is this something I should do, or should I just pay maybe d...

I was young in 91 when the WC started. The women won. Norway won, then the US won again. Were those 2 wins in basically a 10 year span because the world just wasn't preparing/ready for a WC on the women's side? Germany came through and did pretty well after it was established that there would be ...View Topic - Replies (9)

Both of these sports are pretty mickey mouse compared to the other college sports. The softball teams do their chants, sit behind cameras with Dr. Seuss hats on and animal masks, and generally just do high-school level things in the dugout. Baseball isn't as bad, but they still have their is...
