Let's start with this one - I don't seem to be able to do a system restore. I go into the menu, select a checkpoint to restore to, then I get to the screen that says 'clicking next will restore your computer...'. I click next, and nothing happens. I've tried with several different restore points, and it's always the same thing. Anyone have any ideas?
Activision has announced a new Spider Man game in the works, 'Web of Shadows'. Not a lot of information is available, but what is known so far is that the game will not be connected with the movies(thank god), will focus more on vertical combat, and takes place in an open-ended, free-roaming New York(of course). They also make it sound like this game will allow you to power up specific powers(I'm thinking X Men Legends or Ultimate Alliance), and allow you to play as hero or anti-hero. The story apparently revolves around some force(looks to be symbiote-based, looking at the trailer and artwork) threatening all of New York City, which of course leaves the door open for heaps of cameos from other heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe.
This game looks like it could be pretty cool, based on the limited information available. Let's hope that they stay away from the lame challenges, repetitive street fights("...you mean that gang member just killed Spider Man by throwing a bottle? Really??) and hidden token crap that have bogged down the last few games. Spidey needs to be returned to video game greatness.

Okay, I searched through the archive, and to my surprise, didn't see a thread like this already started. Just in case you're not familiar with the concept, assume you're stranded on a desert island(also assume that you can build a cd player out of coconuts or something...). Pick ten cd's that you couldn't live without. Here's mine, in no particular order:
Ben Folds Five-Whatever and Ever Amen
System of a Down-Mesmerize
The Dave Brubeck Quartet-Time Out
Dave Matthews Band-Crash
Ani DiFranco-Out of Range
Hopefully, we can also get some good discussions going in this thread about our favorite music, and maybe discover some cool new music in the process.
