Can I upgrade to u verse without the tv package? The uverse elite plan seems good for 29.99 when I pay 38.00 for the normal elite.


Seems like you can go just with the internet (filter for that alone with the link I gave), as I skipped TV service to get phone service, too. The bandwidth caps sound annoying, but I'm feeling better about staying under the future 250GB monthly U-verse limit after taking some measurements.

Just wondering those with ATT u-verse for internet what type of speeds are you getting, I'm going to switch from Comcast and get the up to 15mps connection. I get 11 down and 4 up at speedtest.net. Thanks in advance for the post of any test results. Also if you have HDTV through them let me know what you think of the quality of the picture.

I actually get close to the stated speeds at just under 12 down and 1.5 up through Speedtest.net's web site, both upon installation and right now. Again, adding a wireless-router WAP to the DMZ (DMZplus mode for 2WIRE's residential gateway) was a real pain to set up, but the network's been working relatively smoothly for me for the last few weeks since doing so.

Went to the north Elston Av. Kmart Wednesday to pick up Crysis 2 and they had 2 copies of Yakuza 3 but i hesitated to pick one up. Went there this evening to get one after having second thoughts but they were gone. The Kmart at Division, Milwaukee, and Ashland still had about 3 left after I bought mine if anyone was interested...

Glad to see they finally have one. I tried to make one in 1997 and people thought I was nuts. Is this a Campus Activities Board event, Student Association, or just a club doing it on their own?

Good luck with that. Both stores only had 5 games at 40% on Friday.

They barely had any games. The one that stuck out the most was Force Unleased 2.
Ended up getting

The Grudge 2 $1
Repomen $3
The Spirit $3
Machete Blu-Ray $12
GIG Rise of the SixString $5 From Best Buy right off 55 by the mall.

Best Buy also had Dark Void, Harry Potter, NUNS2, and a few other games for $7 to $12

I've heard the BestBuy in Burbank (across from Ford City Mall) will be one of the locations...but don't know the dates or time.

My Lowball Sale has ended.  I feel your pain.

It's pretty amazing how much advertising Portal 2 is getting. Between the billboards and CTA buses it sure is getting alot of attention around here. Or maybe it's just me...

Not just you...I see it everywhere I go. Grabbed my brothers copy of Orange Box a few years back just to play the first one and loved it. I'm happy it's getting so much attention now. I just hope enough people like the product, and that it eclipses the original. Been seeing so many deals but I think I'm just gonna keep my PS3 copy locked in at Amazon. Had a $20 credit to burn there anyway. If anyone else is getting it for the same, hit me up if you want to try out the coop.

It seems like they're on every bus in the city. I see them everyday when I go to school. I've seen a few billboards here and there too.

Yup, just like that Mortal Kombat billboard on Diversey and Western. Hope the marketing blitz is worth it -- and that the game deserves it, too.

Kinda wish I had gone now, but still glad I watched the Bulls game instead. Met Boon back in the day at the former Diversions arcade by Lincoln Villiage during the pre-release phase of MK4. They had a "beta" arcade, so to speak, because it had only a few characters in it before the game launched in arcades nationwide. He used to come out every week or two with a new board to install, adding new characters and backgrounds gradually. Good times.

Got to meet Ed Boon and other developers of the game at the gamestop. Overall the place was pack inside the store and at the tour bus. Ed was surprise that I handed him the DC vs MK steelbook to sign he didn't know what kind of case it was and I told him I had to get the version with the joker fatality intact and he was, heck yeah!
