I have a sony 32inch trinitron. It does 480i,480p,720p,1080i, but no widescreen frown , but it still rocks! biggrin . I don`t mind no widescreen and it`s big enough for our small apartment living room. GREAT picture!


I'm assuming that your monitor has an aspect ratio button to change between 4:3 and 16:9?  If so then you are still doing "widescreen."  Change the aspect ratio to 16:9 on the TV and make sure the video source (game console, DVD, etc) is also set up for 16:9 displays and you're in business.  

I bought a 32" HDTV for my gaming TV for just that reason- when watching widescreen content I get approximately a 30" screen.  However when watching standard content (which was important since I play a lot of older games) I'm getting 32" of picture.  If I had gone with the comparably priced 30" widescreen models then my widescreen picture wouldn't have been any bigger but standard content would only be 24" diagonal.  

As long as you're fine with black bars then I think 32" HDTVs are a great tradeoff if you'll spend a healthy portion of the time viewing non-HD material.


 Ya, I don`t mind the black bars at all really. It does have a 16:9 enhanced function or something or other. I just haven`t tried it out, I`m sure with the 360 I will though;)

I want to live in Southern California. Orange Countyish. I absolutely love it there. Need to find a decent job though, and so far I haven't, so I remain in dreary, miserable Maryland.


 Marylands not treating you real good :cry: . I hear ya I`m in ohio, near cleveland. ick. It`s really not THAT bad, it has nice parks etc. but, it`s far from "fun" to live in, as far as I`m concerned. :wink: I also do like California...that is until i turn on the news and see all that forest fire crap :shock: . I won`t live in a place with that stuff going on, that`s for sure.
2043  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Where do you live and do you like it? If you could live... on: September 30, 2005, 06:20:19 AM
anywhere, where would you? I`m just curious, I posted awhile back about what people would like to do for a living etc., well this is similar(obviously). We both want to move outta here at some point, sooner than later. I`m really open to ANY suggestions. I like cold and warm places. I do like warm better than cold, but to be honest I hate both extremes...really hot and really cold. BUT, I`d really move anywhere if I really liked it. Any ideas?

Yeah-its just really sick, disturbing, and probably incomprehensible to us how someone could get their jollies with sick shit like this, but I guess that is what separates those with seriously issues from those that just play too many video games smile

Glad I didn't see it.... but for some reason my curiosity always gets perked.    Can you say what it was without being disgusting?


 Lol, I don`t know if that is possible, but...I`ll put it as nice as possible...It was  a person pooping in their own mouth...or something like that. I didn`t stare.

The magazine reviews so far...

GamesMaster: 91%
Gamestar: 82%
Some other german magazine: 80%
EDGE: 7/10
PCFormat: 67%
PCGamer UK: 76%


Wow, that is all over the map-suprised PCGamer UK gave it such a low score-dont they usually review games early and give them like 9.5s?


 Not to sound like ass(I don`t sound like one, but rest assured, I am one :wink: )but...I really only look at gamespy, gamespot, and IGN. I really don`t like any of them, but used together, I think they get the job done. I`ve never used ANY of the sources above. That`s not to say the aren`t good sources, just I`ve never used them before.

 I purchased it, configed it , played it...all smooth. Good fun. Then I turn off my PC, grab a beer, say goodnight to the wife and loo forward to playing this for a few hours...........................Steam says it`s updating..............then it takes 5 minutes to get steam up...then it gives me a error saying my account is bad or something or other...then I try again and it says it`s starting dod:s...but it never does...I try to shutdown steam it says it can`t until i shut down the steam apps...I look in task manager and there`s NOTHING running! I shut down my pc and it say steam stopped responding, and I click end task now...and then I watch my pc sit at "saving your settings" for 30!!!MINUTES!!!and nothing. Then I did the only thing I could, and what I love to do... :roll: Press the reset button on my pc. FUN! :roll: ARGGGHHHHH!!!


 Sorry about the venting, but sheeesh. I`m not alone either, my buddy that works at eb, same thing...look at steam forums...lots of it going around. :twisted:  :evil: !

Bose Tripod. http://www.bose.com/controller?event=VIEW_PRODUCT_PAGE_EVENT&product=triport_headphones_index. Great headphones, really great headphones. Well, worth the money IMHO. I have used them one the PSP, the DS, XBOX games, same with cube and PC games and all sound great. BTW, the cable is maybe 5ft...? I`m not really sure, but I think their site might say.
