    Fallen Empire: Legions, the browser game Garage Games was developing, is actually really good! It's faster paced than Tribes 2 but it's simpler because they haven't added a lot to it.

    Unfortunately Instant Action still isn't fully rebuilt yet so you can't play it anymore. It really sucks.

    Jetpack is really slow. It's trivially easy to shoot at somebody who's hovering around. You can take people by surprise and move across the map in unconventional ways and a few weapons are very effective while airborne, though.

    My brief experience with the game was: If I have a jetpack and you don't, you die via nades.

    Some of that is just surprise. Dudes jetting around tend to be targets.

    I've learned to be very conservative with my jetpack use. But it's handy sometimes for doing some non-conventional approaches. When takes are being utilised, I try to use jetpacks behind walls and such to get closer and then hop over with nades or a more intimate assault.

    the cost of the high end model is $100 more, and you get the $20 wired headset for free

    is the 250 gb hdd more than $80?

    I have no idea. I am use to the ps3 which uses standard laptop sized hds. And you can get a big 250 gig hd for cheap.

    hmmm

    ok

    so $300?

    hmmm

    or, walmart offers the 4gb onboard console, bioshock 2, the headset, and a year of xbox live, for $280

    sell bioshock 2 on ebay for $20

    so

    $260 for the console, the $20 headset, and the $60 live membership

    or $360 for the 250gb console, the headset, and the $60 live membership

    i guess it works out similarly either way

    i don't know if i need the hard drive again

    i'm too cheap to really pay for dlc, i only used it to download free demos

    Well he was overseas, so you can't really get taxed on that. I used to get sick returns when I was contracting for the DOD. I still love when work sends me to Africa because it's like a month where work pays for everything, and I rake in about 2k more a month in non taxable income to "live", plus my normal rate. And that's in the NGO international development field. It's not unheard of for contractors in areas (and I don't mean blackwater) to clear 10k in a month or so. And most of that is in save the world type foreign aid missions.

    Combine that with various ways to avoid taxes on medical plans, and other scams and you should always get several grand back a year even on a minimal salary.

    Hence the joke in DC, all of the save the world organizations are nothing but middle class welfare for overly educated people.

    Hell I'm making only 2/3 of what I was a year and a half ago. There are goddamn teenagers making more money than me on a regular basis. What's mind-boggling is that there are people who are even poorer than I am. I'm already economically a non-entity as it is.

    --

    I could never move to DC. I'm only depressed when I think about money here. In DC I would be depressed every other moment.

    Also if I ever had a job where I was required to stop working so hard I would start living up to my avatar.
