If you haven't heard and are reallyh bored or just have nothing to do tomorrow you should probably check it out. I am going to sit back in my lawn chair with my laptop tonight, something different then sitting in the house all the time :D
"The event begins 54 minutes past midnight PDT (3:54 a.m. EDT) on August 28. At first, there is little change. The outskirts of Earth's shadow are as pale as the Moon itself; an onlooker might not even realize anything is happening. But as the Moon penetrates deeper in to the Earth's shadow, a startling metamorphosis occurs. Around 2:52 a.m. PDT (5:52 a.m. EDT) the color of the Moon changes from moondust-gray to sunset-red. This is totality, and it lasts for almost 90 minutes."
Got home today after seeing Pirates 3 (pretty good) check out the stuff on gamespot like I always do and ho and be hold I got a sweet new Emblem!
Wed night was some great times, Played Halo 3 with the a bunch of the guys from gamespot for gamespots game night. Got to team up and kill Chris Watters (new guy) and Aaron Thomas. Managed to grab four 1st places and two 2nd places of the night. http://www.bungie.net/Stats/PlayerStatsHalo3.aspx?player=Xelloss101 . Was a great night glad I could help Kevin sort some of the hundreds of people trying to play. Can't wait to see what the next gamenight will be.
Just was going to say I got Lord of the Rings online. I am on server Brandywine, if you have a guild or need some friend Il add you to my friends list. Love the game just need some people to talk to once and awhile :D Also I am looking for a guild or kinship whatever they call it. My avatars name is Xelloss.
Just was checking my email today and saw my Advance sign up tickets were in my Spam folder, check it out and got a code for some extra goodies like a 7 hour extra event time. Basically lets you get in an hour or so early! If you signed up for the tickets on the site go check your spam folder or inbox for the code and get your tickets. Its only 90 bucks and you 4 days + early access, thats a great deal if you ask me. Can't wait!

> Support for streaming WM-DRM protected content from a PC.
> Folder view for video content on connected devices

I am Loving the H.264 support (no 5.1 though :( ), I guess Divx and Xvid support will never come :(
As some of us know, somehow Gamespot accedently leaked their Xbox Dashboard update video. Basically the video told us that MSN will now be fully interragrated into Xbox Live.
- 600 Windows Live Messenger contacts for your friends list
- Contact list will integrate Windows Live Messenger and show joinable session status
- Messenger contacts see what game you're playing and gamertag
- Marketplace has own blade, skin will change independent from theme
- Users will now see what achievement they've unlocked onscreen
- Low-power download mode followed by auto-shutdown
- You can watch partially downloaded video files
But that is is part of the list, probably just the list that is fully completed and for sure going to be released on update date. However it was said on the video that they are working on Voice chat functions and hopefully that means more then 2 people voice chat. I really hope that is what they update becuase the 3 things I really want from the update is, multivoice chat, 1680*1050 support and DIVX, XVID and H.264 support. Well I really hope Gamespot didn't screw themselves with this leak and will never or rarley get any exclusives in the future.

After watching the Grand Theft Auto trailer, and endlessly refreshing different website since basically we took down Gametrailers.com, Rockstar, and some others I finally found some mirrors for people to see. I posted them up on various forums and finally watched this trailer.
My first reaction was like sweet this game will rock, but taking a another view from it this game seems to have a better story feel, rather then "Hey look at me I am a mob member I am going to shoot you" rather to the fact that hey this is Deep and stuff will happen and you will pay the consqeunces later on. I really can't wait to see more of this game, but it seems rockstar will make the series more appealing for the story driven people rather then just the I want to rush through this is fast as possible people. Anyway that is my take on it.
