I just heard from a friend that they have over 2 and a half feet of snow in other parts of the city. It's insane. I really need to find some people to go to the park with today and play 'kill the carrier'. That has got to be the best game to play in the snow EVER.

We got a foot and a half. Overnight. ALL the schools are closed today by order of the BOE. The mayor of London (Ontario) is advising us to stay home. Not even the city buses are running today. Isn't Canada great?

Since it's close quarters, using a long blaster is probably a bad idea, so that rules out the longshot. And also, the longshot has a lower ammo capacity than both other types of Nerf gun available to you, so that's another point against it.

Though the magstrike is great for close quarters, the reload time may be a problem. If you get rushed while trying to pump it 20-30 times and reload a magazine (or is it a clip in the MSs case, as it goes into the top of the gun, and the whole thing moves?) you're toast. So unless you have a sidearm or practice shooting short (2-4 round) bursts and then repriming, and always have enough ammo to keep both magazines loaded, using the magstrike is not the greatest idea.

The Dart Tag Blaster has the same ammo capacity as the magstrike, and a shorter repriming time. It is also a lot more compact than the Longshot. So, in this situation I would have to say that the DTS is probably the best way to go.

If it was a long range battle, I'd advise using the longshot. If sidearms were available, I'd say the Magstrike.

-Bubble Bobble Revolution (DS). I remember playing the original on the commodor 64 when I was about 5 years old (and then the disk got scratched. It's among my top ten video games of all time, so the new one must be good.

-Nerf Magstrike. I need more clips for the one I already have, and dual wielding the would be awesome for indoor Nerf wars.

-Chapters/Coles gift certificate. I like being able to get a Wolverine comic book every month.

-Nintendo DS screen protectors. If you saw the screen on my GBA, you would understand instantly

Newsflash douchebag;

I love you too.

in the past 5 years I've given more to charities and other funds that are for the good of other people then I've spent on videogames. Do you want me to give every penny I make? Let's give to people we don't know who are probably going to die anyway, and then GIVE SOME MORE!

I never said you don't give anything, now did I? And about not spending money on yourself, to quote myself: "I don't think Elf meant that you shouldn't spend any money on yourself". And what's wrong with giving money to people that we don't know who are probably going to die anyway? If we can help to improve the quality of someone else, why does it matter if we know them, or if they die shortly afterwards?

No one said that PS2 didn't sell the most, but I don't agree with the fact that "they controlled 70% of the market" or whatever.

As I said, I don't know the numbers.

Yes that fucking blatant generalization was totally unnecessary, as was most of your post.

So what you're saying is that we should just sit around while thousands of people are starving and dying? While that's very decent of you

Who gives a shit if you'd rather play real football? You can't play real football all day. You can't do it with your disabled friends who want to feel like they can actually play, if videogames is as close to playing as they can get, you might as well play with them.

Again, your United States comment is an unnecessary GENERALIZATION. If I give 50% of what I make to charity or whomever you want me to give to and other pompous assholes who make 10x me decide to give nothing, how does that make me look? Bad. Gamers could be quite generous as a whole.

If you didn't notice, I also mentioned Canada using more energy per capita, and I said as a country. I didn't say "RAMBO, you greedy SOB, quit using all the F***ING ressources!" I said that as a society, we are very well off and should be doing more. If you are already giving a lot, you are doing your part.

Until you find a fucking resource and cite it and it shows that gamers as a whole donate less than the United States as a whole, SHUT THE FUCK UP

Nice day to you too.

In closing, I'd like to refer to my previous post and say: I'm amazed at how defensive and offended people get when others don't sugarcoat every one of their phrases, or point out faults.
