There's no way the same thing that happend in Iraq is going to happen in Iran anytime soon. The only countries that would be interested in preventive war would be the UK and the US, like was already said the UK won't touch it without US backing. The US isn't going to fight another war anytime soon, ...

The laser system proved very inconsistent in hands-on tests, but it is, at the very least, an interesting approach. This sounds like more of a cheap ripoff than anything else. I haven't heard any of these problems from people that have tried Nintendo's new controller. Nintendo has most likely been ...

There's no such thing as a dumb question. :wink:

Use cd-r's, dreamcasts can't read dvds. And make sure you use a decent brand such as Verbatim, Maxell, etc. Crappy brands make the laser work a lot harder and may not even work at all.

NesterDC SE works great for me. I noticed that one of my favorite games, Bad News Baseball, doesn't work, however. The ROM works fine in all the RockNES and Nestopia on my Mac, just not in NesterDC (I don't think it worked in NesterDC 6 or 7 either). Meh, why play that when you've got Baseball Star...

I'm sure someone with enough time and skill could get N64 running smoothly on the Dreamcast. I mean look at Bleemcast!, it's silky smooth AND has all kinds of graphical enhancements. There are only a handful of 'complete' emulators at this point though and they're for 8-bit stuff(NES, SMS, GBC). I ...

I think they meant that this runs at 12FPS at maximum. By the looks of the screenshots of Mario 64 it runs at an average of 7FPS, which I believe to be far from playable speeds. Not to downplay this or anything, this is still quite an achievement! Just I hope any newcomers don't expect perfect N64 e...

Besides tabs aren't sold or anything. Of course they are. For example, Led Zeppelin , White Stripes , Slipknot , Norah Jones , The Offspring , just to name a few artists of different genres. True, but I was referring to the tabs that you can find on sites such as tabcrawler or the bass tab archive....

I think this is bullsh!t. I've been using tabs for years, in particular bass tabs. I can see how the lyrics may be a breach of copyright, but I don't think tabs are, unless they are directly pulled from a magazine or something. Tabs are just someone's perception of how a song is played. Besides tabs...

Definitely. 3% is way too high for any company, much less one as big and reputable as Microsoft.

What kind of screwed up legal system do they have over there? From what I thought, when you kill people and have a court date you don't decide whether or not to show up, you're dragged in there!
