Saw Transformers last night and I don't know, I was a little disappointed. I wanted old school, I wanted Soundwave snitching to Megatron on Starscream's plots, I wanted Starscream holding Megatron as a gun, I wanted Optimus Prime to have his trailer hitched, I wanted Bumblebee is a VW bug, I wanted so much more, I guess I shouldn't have gone in with such high hopes. It was a good movie, but IMHO could have been a lot better. Maybe Soundwave makes his debut in Transformers 2.

No, I didn't have any time to play APF 2K8 over the weekend, but will tonight and give more impressions and thoughts, unless other readers have the game by then.

What's up with you?

QOTD:

My weekend was fantastic! My wife was out of town so I had the apartment all to myself. Perfect timing too, as I was able to find NCAA 08 Saturday afternoon. SO...my weekend was spent in front of the TV, playing football. Some may say I wasted a beautiful weekend. I say I took FULL advantage of it!

I think I read somewhere that Soundwave is going to be in the sequel. I got my Transformers out of my parents' attic on Saturday. I remember them being a lot bigger (but I guess that's because I was a lot smaller the last time I held them).
QOTD: Pretty good. Went on a pub crawl on Saturday night, which was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, it led to a pretty lazy Sunday.

QOTD - great weekend. Friday I played NCAA all night. Saturday we tailgated in downtown Cleveland for the Kenny Chesney concert, went in at 4, concert started at 4:30 and didn't end till 11:30. Amazing, amazing show. Even saw some drunk guy get run over by a car on the freeway after. True story.

Sunday we figured out how we're going to wire our dishwasher for our remodel next week of our kitchen, and now it's Monday. JOY

OK, you aren't going to leave us w/o the full story here.

Kitchen remodelling, only the best of luck EG.

LOL. Well, Cleveland Browns Stadium had a water pipe break, so water was flowing everywhere (we got free bottled water inside though ). When we left the concert, they made us walk on the inside lane of the freeway up towards Muni Lot (about a 10 minute walk from Browns Stadium). Some idiot ran in the middle of the freeway, the cops yelled for him to get back, and then a car comes flying up the freeway, didn't see him and BAM. He got about 8 feet in the air and landed like a thud.

I have no idea if he lived or not, we kept walking in the heard, half of the group ran towards him to check on him. I wasn't doing that. To top it off, not a mention of it on the news at all.

Yeah, I start next Monday, wish me luck!

QOTD: It was a good weekend. I trimmed back some trees in the yard and cooled off in the pool during the days. Saturday evening we went to my sister in laws to celebrate my nieces birthdays. Her two girls were born on the same day 2 years apart.

Still have many of the favorites (Prime, Megatron, Soundwave, Starscream). Had some that I don't remember at all (the Technobots?). Looking at Megatron, who looks like a real gun, there is no way they would be able to make a toy like that now. There are a ton of small pieces (guns, etc.) in the box, so I've got to match them up with the right robot. Luckily, there's a collector's website with all that info. Once I get them all put together, I'm going to see how much I can sell them for (except for Prime, I think I might hold onto him).

If I ever find mine, I know I have all of those. I have the dinobots, the constructicons, all of Soundwaves cassettes, (Rumble, Frenzy, Laserbeak, etc.) Man, I'm a nerd. What's the website?

I have a bunch of those cassettes, too, including the Autobot ones. When I get my list done, I'll be sure to post it on here.

Woah, thanks for the link. Now, if only I could find them.

QOTD: My weekend was pretty good. The family went out to see 'Transformers' (which my wife enjoyed), as well as going to dinner on Saturday night to celebrate my her promotion. Yesterday I saw 'Harry Potter' and came away IMMENSELY disappointed in all but the final 30 minutes...cramming the biggest HP book into the shortest HP movie was was a failed experience.

My weekend sucked, I was hoping to get NCAA on Friday, but they sold out before I could get my copy.

I did go out and see my friends play soccer on Friday though, and that was fun, they were down 6-1 and came back to tie it up in the final minute, awesome game to watch.

Not a bad weekend, went out, had some fun with friends, but a few things didn't go as well as I'd hoped...

Looking forward to NCAA tomorrow, can't wait to get a dynasty and a CAP going.

I had a nice weekend, did some camping, played in a poker tourney (finished 5th of 20, but didnt win any money), played a round of golf (not very good though), and today I am counting the hours til NCAA comes out.

Good weekend. A lot of NCAA.

That guy who bashed the 360 is a tool. Have fun with your sturdy console with no games to play.

I'll play my 360 with a crapload of exclusives, thank you very much.
