I tried signing up for this even though I bought mine forever ago. I think I actually registered my original back then, but when it broke down last February, I got a new one. Thought I'd try anyways. If it does work for people, I'm sure its going to be pre-selected games they'll give you the codes f...

They don't necessarily give more detail, but when playing on larger screens at high resolutions its nicer to have it look somewhat smooth like the original did on my old TV back in the day. As opposed to say...a giant moving lego picture :P . I don't see why it would damage your vision, it doesn't e...

Man, on the weekend you were stuck in your room and now you're in a hospital? I'm sorry Synlor :( . To save you any more pain, I thought I'd let you know that Starfox on DS kinda blows, mostly due to its insanely crappy controls. You HAVE to use the stylus for aiming/flying, you can't simply use the...

I just tried it out and its pretty cool. Even has the music! The graphics are way improved over the original, but the look is still very faithful. I played on Facility, and everything from the original level was there, including the air duct in the bathroom. However, they've made several creative ad...

I've been to NoA to replace a defective Gamecube once (I live about 45 minutes from Redmond). Didn't get to go through the big areas though, just the small customer service shop. Pretty nice looking place, but I was hoping to see Mario and Zelda statues or something :P . I also toured Digipen once w...

Does GTA:VCS force you to update your firmware that high? I've been wanting another PSP ever since mine got stolen/lost. Still have some games for it. I would want to use emulators on it though, so I'd probably need a downgrader. Does it have any dead pixels? Also does that Shenmue 2 have the bonus ...

Seriously, are you two forgetting that this is uhh...DC Emulation . Supposedly most people are fans of emulating here. o_O The legality of roms never stopped any of us before. If I was to buy something for the VC, it would either be for convenience or if it had been improved over the original. Not b...

Check out the guys YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=iosysred Seems he has Mario Kart 64 and Smash Bros working as well. Interesting for sure. I don't think Nintendo needs to worry about the VC because of this. These emulators already existed, all thats changed is you can use the wii...

Hah, how does that even happen on accident. It wouldn't be hard for their web designer to sift through Sony's PR materials for a screenshot of GT HD, so how did he go off and get a PGR3 pic :o I don't even know if that car is in the game..

I completely fail to see how the "effort" and "energy" involved with these two approaches are comparable either quantitatively or qualitatively. As in I would rather work overtime than spend time fixing crap. Don't want to take the energy to put the effort into that. Not trying to be scientific...k...

Uhh, wouldn't one 8800GTX and a better processor and more RAM be more beneficial than two 8800GTX's. Especially with a small monitor like that o_o . A single 8800GTX has no problems pumping out greater than 60fps on any game at resolutions like that. 8800GTX's are long too, its gonna be a tight sque...

Pixel-separation is only noticeable up close, not from a normal viewing distance, and I think plasmas more than make up for that with how much more crisp their picture looks compared to most (especially budget model) rear projection TVs. I don't really understand your view on putting so much effort ...

Haha, you've finally recovered from complete digestive system failure and the first thing you want to eat is Taco Bell? I mean, I love Taco Bell, but I think thats kind of a step back towards digestive failure ;)

DaMadFiddler, your set should work fine with the PS3. The problem that some HDTVs have (I've heard something like 20% which is quite a high number, scary if its true) is that they cannot display 720p. These are only quite old sets though. They will only play 480i, 480p, and 1080i. The PS3 does have ...

I think the reason they are doing a public beta is to test out new network code. 16-player battles could get quite laggy in Halo 2, and I've heard that Halo 3 can have greater than 16-player matches. Also since the game isn't going to come out for another 6+ months, and Bill Gates originally said Ha...

The subs will need to be in a properly designed box if they aren't already. The subs get connected to an amp which has a direct line to your battery as well as your stereo. Normally at the stereo you'd connect to a sub pre-amp, however most stock head units don't have that, so it gets a little more ...

Whoa, wasn't I talking to you in #dcemu about Xbox Live like 2 hours after you posted this? I had no idea man. I'm very sorry to hear this. :( Don't think you only have one opportunity in life though. If you were planning on getting a car and moving out, I'd still try to do it (not too soon though)....
