  1. FINALLY!!! Battlefront is coming back! And with the right developer this time! http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/06/18/star-wars-battlefront-ea-on-why-dice-is-a-perfect-fit This is why there is "hope". One of the best Star Wars games ever is going to finally get the attention it deserves. And with a slew of new movies coming out, it can only get better from here. After Kinect Star Wars...could it get any worse?
  2. If you like "beats" wait until the entire album comes out. This song is actually one of the "ballads". Most of the album is going to be new wave EBM. Think of New Order, Depeche Mode, and Cause & Effect.
  3. So yeah long, long, long time ago I used to sing in a few bands. During those years and the years that followed I wrote several songs, and mothballed them as I went from band to band. With my recent failing health, I dusted off those old songs, and have been working with a friend of mine to produce a solo album. Back in the 90's I read a book about John Lennon, and came across a very unique name....Taro. I always thought one named artists were the coolest, like Sting, Bono, Madonna, Prince...etc. So the name stuck, and has been my "stage name" for years. So without further delay, here is a snippet from my first solo album Terrace Edge Chronicles which should be out iTunes by the end of the summer. Enjoy!
  4. You can't afford that whole lot dear. At almost 100 hallmark Star Wars ornaments, that collection is worth more than my own life!
  5. New stuff up! A few action figure sets, Vehicles, and Pez dispensers! Yes, Pez dispensers! http://www.ebay.com/itm/star-wars-pez-dispensers-/281081765603?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4171c75ee3
  6. This thread gives me "A New Hope"! *runs out of the room*
  7. XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the quite possibly one of the best video games I have ever played. Ever. Now my problem is when I play this, time speeds up and hours fly by. Last time I picked it up around 8pm. By the first time I decided to even pause the game, it was 4:45 am the next day. Firaxis is good at making games like that! Last time that happened was when I was playing Civrev on 360. Now I have to be careful when to start because I can't seem to ever want to quit. Anybody else play this?
  8. No mam. Just carded figures and assorted vehicles for now. Not selling EVERYTHING, just enough to lighten up the load.
  9. Due to overall lack of space, I am selling off a majority of my Star Wars collection on ebay soon. I already have listings for my GI Joe stuff. I plan to have most of it sold off over the next few months. If you guys have any special requests let me know. http://www.ebay.com/soc/itm/281069975481?roken=YkqxXB http://www.facebook.com/adam.m.wilcox/posts/10200815595812124 Keep watching this thread for updates!
  10. And now.....a rant to clear my thoughts... For many years I have been a LOYAL customer of Amazon.com, and I am even an Amazon.prime member. Over the past couple of days Christmas came and went, Santa brings me a new computer with a new OS, Windows 8. I am no stranger to having a new OS. I have had pcs that ran Windows ME, XP, XP pro, Vista Home, (never owned Windows 7...sorry). While I still carry a torch for XP, the last best OS ever made....I still have to deal with the fact that Microjunk is going to keep changing the script so they can get the rest of your money. Now days unless you build your own PC, you get very little choice in your OS, if buying a pc off the shelf. Anyways, I am not complaining about the OS itself. It is what it is. What I AM complaining about is the compatibility issues. Mind you, Windows 8 has not been out that long, however we ALL KNEW it was coming. Apparently, Amazon.com did not get the memo. If you go browse the site right now, I want you to look at a couple of things. In particular anything related to pc downloads. First look up about 3 PC games and tell me how many of them are Windows 8 compatible. Next, go the mp3 section, and look up the amazon.com downloader which is REQUIRED in order to purchase and download mp3s. You will note, that the one device that is required in order to put your purchased media onto your computer also, does not support Windows 8. Just as a goof I decided to download it anyway to see if it might work, and of course there is compatibility issues. No surprise there. So now all of my amazon downloads from the past year, are stuck in virtual cloud space. Thankfully most of them are already on my iphone, but I shant be buying anymore mp3s from there any time soon. This would probably not be a big deal, but Itunes is running fine with Windows 8. So is Star Wars TOR, and Star Trek Online. So point is this, other people saw the writing on the wall, made modifications, and made sure things worked for us unfortunate Windows 8 owners. What excuse does Amazon have? I have already sent them an email about my frustration with not being able to purchase anything off the site unless it is stuff for my Kindle fire. Here is to keeping up with the times...
  11. I got a HP Pavillion G6 Laptop. Specs are here: http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?p=2825537#post2825537 Before you dump on it, I am poor, and it runs The Old Republic which was all I cared it would do! I also got a couple of $25 Kindle cards. I got a Kindle Fire last Christmas and have used it literally every day since then. Santa was pretty good to Groovy this year.
  12. Lord Groovy is my first MMO character ever. I may need some advice from all you pros out there! Warrior Class Sith Zabrak with some scars. I think you will like him. He is also a hell of a cook!
  13. Sorry it was 320 GB HD! Something happened when I copied and pasted specs! I am HAPPY to say after a days worth of downloading the game is running smoothe! My Character is a warrior Sith, Zabrak named Lord Groovy! Soooo Happy! See you guys in the game!
  14. Good to know. All this time, my last Pc could not run it. Star Trek installed fine, yet crashed at character creation menu. I just hope to be able to play the game at all.
  15. So I did not put this in the Very Good Things Thread, because it is a Christmas present I did not open yet. I am getting a lap top to replace my aging desktop. I am very broke and unemployed at the moment, so I had very little to work with. I AM hoping however that my new laptop will at least run Star Trek Online, and Star Wars The Old Republic.
