ok, I have no shame


William Shatner made a CD? You have GOT to be kidding.

And I'm currently listening to Dracula Nocturne (Japanese import of the Castlevania: Symponia of the Night soundtrack for the PS1). Yes, I do actually own the music CD. smile

I'll live up to my name and continue pushing Opera on this new Internet home.  slywink  

And why I prefer Firefox (unless things have changed):

1) Firefox is completely, totally, and utterly free.
2) It doesn't have the same name as that person on TV that I utterly hate.

You know, Zaxxon, I remember doing these same arguments with you before... biggrin

Well, I know that STUN Runner runs very slow on MAME (with a fast computer), so maybe they were having problems getting the game to run at a decent speed on the PS2/Xbox.

And here I thought that MAME supported any standard 3d accelerator card nowadays for those kind of games. *shrugs*

Anyway, enough about emulation. I wonder why they just didn't port the Atari Lynx version instead? It had voice and everything, and moved at a pretty good clip considering the lack of raw power in the console.

Yep, they pulled Mortal Kombat (so they could have it on the Kollectors Editon of MK:D) and STUN Runner (emulation problems?) and replaced them with: Kozmik Kroozr', Timber and Wacko. :?

MK I can understand, but Stun Runner? Emulation problems in this day and age? You can't throw a stick without hitting an emulator of somesort nowadays.

I'm also well versed in video gaming, but I've never heard of any of those replacements. Time to get my brain up to date. smile

So can someone explain how this works for a total noob?  Does an open beta mean that anyone can download the beta version of the game and play it during the beta period?  What are the typical restrictions?

To answer your questions: Yes and absolutely none at all (generally, as everybody can play).

Keep in mind that it's something like a 2 to 3GB download.

I do too. I've been using Firefox for a while and love it. Except for the cache. It seems to make its own variety of cache files so you can't go in and find, e.g., a Flash movie you want to save. Or maybe I just don't know what I'm doing.

I've never really dug through Firefox's cache, well, ever, so I wouldn't know about this. I also don't have Shockwave or Flash installed on this browser, so I couldn't view them if I tried.

That's why I keep IE around - just for that and nothing more.

is there a level cap?

if I can level up in the "training room" I'm a little concerned about maxing out my characters before finishing the game.

I don't think there is. I had to redo some missions in the Training Room a few times, and gained a ton of exp as a result, but while I needed an absolute ton of exp to gain the next level (in the millions, easily), I never hit any kind of cap.

I'll second the co-op mode fun!  I've had a blast with it by myself, but it really gets interesting with 2 or 3 other people playing alongside you.  The cries of 'watch where you're throwing that barrel!' and 'I was going to kill that!' are quite amusing.

That and some special combos like the Fastball Special (take a melee powerhouse like Rogue or Colossus and throw another character, especially Wolverine) are hard to pull off in single player.

Nobody really knows what Square has planned in its Final Fantasy line. They might make a ton of cash in sells of FF1 and FF2, so they'll decide to just port the Wonderswan version of FF3 (which is essentionally what FF1 and FF2 are, to my knowledge) to the GBA as well.

eBay might be a good place to start. They aren't cheap however, as they're kinda rare nowadays. And, no, you can't have mine. smile

Edit: Now that I think on it, I should finish my Atari Lynx collection as well. Two consoles, a whole ton of accessories, and every single game that was ever released in the US (in addition to a few homebrew titles) short of just a few... eBay, here I come!

Well, I've posted my review of X-Men Legends for the Xbox, so in CG tradition, this post is to discuss any thoughts about my review or the game itself.

Personally, I found it a pretty fun single player title, but it's far more fun with a few friends over thanks to the pretty stupid AI in your teammates.

Any questions or thoughts? Ask away. It's a boring day at work, so I need something to talk about. smile

Yes, I know that this isn't the answer you're looking for, but...

Get Firefox...

Built in ad-blocking (which can be easily enhanced by a plugin), built in pop-up blocking, mouse based gesturing (plugin) that drastically increases the ease of the web... Oh, and none of the security flaws that IE has.

To answer your question though, yes, there is a way to delete Flash/Shockwave after you've installed it, but I don't know the command offhand to see/edit what's been installed in your browser. Now that I think on it though, I thought that Service Pack 2 for WinXP was going to do that as an option...

Well, clearly that's the Virtual Boy, so after some research:  Teleroboxer.

Never heard of it.  Can you get Virtual Boys cheap now?

Virtual Boys were cheap when they vanished off of store shelves. Hell - I got the console for $20 and the games for $5 to $10 apiece at my local Blockbuster when Nintendo discontinued them. My stand for the console is busted, and I'm short one (maybe two) of the games to make a complete and total set of everything ever released, but it was a fun console.

Too bad it ruined the development of one's eyes for any kid 12 and younger. smile

Anyway, you're right with your game, so go post away.

Yeah, that I do. I think I still have that photo lying around somewhere.

In all honesty though, this was a good game if you liked the traditional MMO formula. The best part though (IMHO) was the instanced dungeons. It allowed you and your team to get away from the crowds and the kill-stealing, tucking you away from the rest of the world in a dungeon all of your own.

Since then, most MMOs have them. Go figure.
