Blu-ray boycott is dead.

Well it looks like my boycott of Blu-ray is over, now that Toshiba has thrown in the towel on HD-DVD.

Honestly I couldnt care one way or the other. They both offer HD content, so whatever. The only downside for me is that I HATE Sony. But since they have to split the royalties with like 13 other companies (like Samsung, whom I like) it's not so bad. It's not their own personal format. So whatever.

I'm glad it's over so that there's no doubt about the things we are buying, however I dont really like that the corporations made the choice for us consumers in the end. But oh well.

  6. Probably won't have time this weekend, but we should definitely make some playage soon. I spent like 12 hours on my first skirmish. I took out the pirates base and everything and colonized all the planets. Friggin coolness.

    Yeah. I've gotten it down to where I can play 3-4 normal AI in about 4 hours. I LOVE sieging the space pirate planet.

    I'm thinking of setting up a small LAN party just to play this for a day or so.
