1041  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: CES News (Blu-Ray, HD-DVD, DVD, TV) on: January 08, 2007, 08:48:18 PM
I wonder, do the sales numbers of Blu-Ray vs. HD-DVD in the quote above include the sales of PS3's? If so, I imagine that alone would explain the difference.

Hmmm, seems like if I stick to the known manufacturers like Kingston, Pny, SanDisk, etc. I should be okay.
1043  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Wii Question -SD CARD on: January 07, 2007, 10:12:50 PM
Will any brand of SD card work? Nintendo says not all may work but did not specify which ones don't. All they say specifically is that anything larger than 2 GB will probably not work. Can anyone recommend a 1 GB or 2 GB card that does work?

The moral of this story? There's no such creature as a sure thing. The majority of eBay prospectors walked away from this experience with that lesson burned into the back of their brains. My suggestion for the future? If you want to gamble, go to Vegas. If you want to invest, try mutual funds. Leave the video game system buying to the gamers. We'll all be happier for it.

He's quite the rocket scientist to have figured that out all on his own.

Xboxyde has streaming vids of the first 10 minutes of Lost Planet. Look about halfway down the page.

All I can say is WOW. It looks pretty awesome. Decent voice acting and really sweet graphics. I'm definitely getting this game.

I refuse to sit for hours in my car, and can't really understand how people can do it.

Because for some people, it's a legitimate tradeoff for living in an area that is affordable, has good neighborhoods or allows a decent lifestyle. For example, I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. The traffic here is awful during commute time but the quality of life in the area is really nice and a lot of people tolerate the traffic.

If the commute for job 1 consisted of sitting in traffic then I'd tend to lean more towards job 2, but since he said the commute for job 1 is through country roads with very little or no traffic, then it doesn't sound like a dealbreaker.
1050  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Gah! Job Related. Which new job would you take? on: December 22, 2006, 07:33:33 AM
Personally, I'd take job #1. Having the extended off-time is much better in the long run if you want to have any semblance of a personal life. Also, in job 1 you oversee fewer employees. On job #2, having to work every other Saturday sucks. You'll always feel shortchanged on the weekends.
1051  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Non-Microsoft USB wireless adapters for Xbox 360 on: December 21, 2006, 07:07:14 PM
Okay, I call upon the the GT collective to help answers a question.

I have a friend who just got an Xbox 360. He wants to get Xbox Live working on it and needs a wireless USB adapter. Now he could just get the Microsoft one which is a bit overpriced, or I could give him a spare Linksys USB wireless adapter I have lying around. More specificially, it's the Linksys WUSB54GS. Does anyone know if this works with the 360? More generally, do 3rd party USB wireless adapters work with the 360?

I tried asking Linksys if their stupid product worked and the support drone told me that wireless was built into the 360. Umm, yeah. Thanks for nothing. :icon_confused:
1052  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Those still looking for a Wii or PS3 on: December 18, 2006, 02:17:32 AM
I went to EB Games today to pick up some other stuff and asked the sales drone when he thought I could just walk into a store and pick up a Wii. He said probably not until the end of January.

 Guess I'll be waiting until the end of January.

I showed up at Circuit City this morning at 7 am. They had 22, I was like 30th in line. Went across the street to Toys R Us where they were selling 40. I was like 50th in line.

I must be the only one here that can't get one of these damn things.
1056  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: 360 Update bricked my box?? on: December 03, 2006, 03:54:13 AM
The last dashboard update before this latest one bricked my 360. What you are experiencing is exactly what happened to mine. Luckily for me I had bought an extended warranty when I got it at Best Buy a year ago and ended up getting a replacement unit. Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do. Once it is bricked, it can only be repaired/replaced by MS. I recall that the previous update did brick a fair number of units. When I took the latest update today, I was crossing my fingers it would work, which it did. It's ridiculous that we have to play Russian Roulette every time one of these stupid updates comes out.

1061  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Magazine Subscriptions on: November 21, 2006, 10:48:10 PM
I get:

Computer Games Magazine - the best of the big three computer gaming mags IMO.
PC Lamer, er I mean Gamer - Every year I tell myself I am not going to renew and every year I end up renewing. Not this year.
Computer Gaming World/GFW - I am letting the sub run out and not renewing. They are no longer relevant.
Official Xbox Magazine - Another I will let run out without renewing. I'm tired of the poorly written reviews and their lame editorial comments.
EGM - A free sub I got this year. I barely even read it before tossing it in the garbage.
Maxim - Somehow I ended up with a free 5 year subscription. It's free and has many purty pictures.

So by this time next year, I should be down to two magazines.

1063  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: How much credit card debt does your household have? on: November 20, 2006, 08:35:24 PM
My wife and I have two credit cards. One has a running total of $1000-2000 a month. It's used for large purchases, emergencies and as a designated card for business expenses that will be reimbursed. The other card is our everyday card which we always pay off at the end of the month.

One thing I can never understand is people who have literally 15-20 or more credit cards. Hell, who ever needs more than one or two? To carry more than that is inviting trouble. Luckily for me, I've never been tempted to get drawn into the credit black hole.

Are you talking about the 360 charger cable that you hook up from the controller to the USB port of the console to charge the battery in the controller?

My wife caught She-Ra on TV and it became VERY clear to me that He-Man is clearly gay. 

Pink shirt, skin-tight undershirt, purple fuzzy undies on the outside, white pants with pink fuzzy boots.  Couple that with bleach blonde hair with dark black eyebrows and it becomes clear that He-Man bats for She-Ra's team.   

LOL, it only took you like 20 years to figure this out? Welcome to 2006 my friend!

http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=69805

An EA official talking about lack of innovation in Gears of War. That's pretty hilarious.

There is of course a big debate over in the epic forums about this. 

My question....define innovation....and with that definition.....is what he said true or false?   If false, can you prove with an example from the game?   

I would call Gears "refined"....not innovative.   It's very polished and is a rockin good time.  For that....it gets my high review scores.  It doesn't have to be innovative to get scored well.   

- shaggy

Oh, I don't disagree that Gears of War may not be the most innovative game out there. In all honesty, there isn't much beyond the whizbang graphics. Yes, it takes from many FSP games but what it does it does extremely well. So, refined is probably an accurate description. What is amusing to me is someone from EA of all companies criticizing the game for it's lack of innovation.

For me, some obscure little game called Gears of War. Also a healthy dose of Guitar Hero 2, maybe some Call of Duty 3 and the quick game of Elite Beat Agents.

There are a lot of reports that the latest dashboard update that came out a week or so ago (1080p feature, etc.) is causing people's 360's to die. I should know. Mine was bricked by the update and has to be replaced.
1075  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / Re: New, in box, sealed Dell 17" LCD monitor for sale on: November 08, 2006, 07:32:18 PM
Two questions about the monitor.

1. Does it have a DVI connection?

2. Does it have an adjustable stand so you can adjust it vertically?

If the answer is yes to both of these, I'd be very interested in getting it.

1078  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: XBOX 360 Problem on: November 06, 2006, 06:15:06 PM
Well, what a coincidence. I have a launch day 360 that was working perfectly all this time. Then, the fall dashboard update came out and when I updated the system over the weekend, lo and behold, I started getting the red ring death. When it wasn't giving me that, it would lock up shortly after booting. It's definitely not the hard drive because I removed that and it still locks up at the dashboard. After looking at some other messageboards, there are a number of people with the exact same problem. Way to go Microsoft. Release an update that kills people's boxes. Fortunately, I bought the Best Buy 2 year replacement plan so I get to swap it for a new one.
