I *think* Champions of Norrath is $20 this week at Best Buy.

I've finished 6 so far this year, which is really good for me.

Considering that even the story and characters within were better than the last two movies should speak in volumes.

"I don't like sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating, and it gets everywhere. Not like here.  Here everything's soft... and smooth..."

Urk.


At least with the IMAX version they edited out that line smile

I'm no programmer, but I'm sure it's incredibly difficult to write code for multiple operating systems at once.  I mean, how many websites run on Windows but not Mac OS (and sometimes vice versa)?


There are a few - some sites (mostly banks) check for Internet Explorer 6, and since such a beast doesn't exist on the Mac, there ya go.  As well as sites that utilize ActiveX plugins
4686  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Is backwards compatibility a big deal? on: June 21, 2004, 04:14:44 PM
It's definitely important... I don't want to have a closet full of ancient consoles just in case I have the urge to play game X somewhere down the road.  With backwards compatibility, I can toss/sell the old console (as I did with my PS1) once the next gen console is released.  Not to mention the fact that consoles will eventually break down and die... with backwards compatibility, you don't have to worry if your old console can still boot up, or go through ridiculous steps like turning your PS1 upside down or blowing on your NES cartridges until you're blue in the face.

Quote from: "whiteboyskim"
The one time I laughed was when the GBA first came out and Tyco (I think) was sitting there playing with it and each panel had more and more light in it. That one was spot-on.


It's usually the sublte "secondary" joke that makes for the good strips... the main plot (as it were) is rarely worthwhile.

Such as this one... http://www.penny-arcade.com/view.php3?date=2001-11-28&res=l

The dialogue isn't the funny part - it's the fact that those huge things are supposed to be the Xbox controllers.

IF this thing played imports, and PSX titles, I would buy it in an instant.


Indeed... hopefully some enterprising coder will incoroprate PSX capability.

One thing it did mention was that you needed the PS2 HD and broad band adapter.

I bet you could put a bigger HD in but I think you would have to buy their HD kit (currently only sold with FF11 far as I know) to get the special connectors to the PS2.

So the initial outlay is more that just for their fairly reasonable software...more like $100 plus their software.


My understanding is as long as you have the broadband adapter, you can use your own hard drive - the "official" Sony drive isn't necessary.

From the website which shall not be named...

Hard Disk Drive Compatibility:

HDLoader is compatible with all official Sony PS2 INTERNAL hard disk drives,
and most other standard IDE hard disk drives with a capacity of 40GB or larger. There are issues with some modern Segate drives, which cause problems when used in conjunction with older models of the official Sony PS2 network adapter.

If HDLoader freezes at the splash screen for you, then it is due to this conflict. In order to resolve this you will either need to purchase a new hard disk drive or network adapter (if you need to get a new network adapter, try and get one that includes the modem).

I just like the idea of being able to consolidate... I have all my DVDs in a 300 disc jukebox and all my CDs ripped to my iPod.  I keep the actual discs in boxes in the basement.  Makes for a much neater living environment.  $30 isn't a bad deal, and I have a couple of 80GB drives just lying around, so why not?

Yeah, people are going to use it for nefarious purposes, but as Fellow pointed out, if people are motivated to pirate, they'll do it regardless.

Even if it has completely legitimate uses?  That's like deleting links for CD burners, simply because they can be used to copy CDs.

Not trying to cause a fuss, just curious.
4694  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS2] HDLoader - play PS2 games from hard drive on: June 15, 2004, 07:29:09 PM
(I apologize in advance if this is considered too close to "piracy")

Anyone else heard of this?  Basically, they allow you to copy games onto the PS2 hard drive (or add one of your own!), and play them directly from the hard drive (a la a modded Xbox).

I'm a sucker, and ordered one, despite the fact I only own about 6 PS2 games, but love hack-ish technology like this smile

I've noticed that as well - it's particularly bad in, say, EGM.  I went through one issue and dogtagged every page that had some kind of emphasis on the mammaries.  Needless to say, I marked nearly half the magazine.

What kills me, is that people complain that gaming isn't taken seriously as an "adult" hobby, yet the games and magazines are littered with these sophomoric, wildly exaggerated portrayals of females.  Of *course* the general public is going to look at that and come to the conclusion that games are only for pubescent males who have never kissed anyone other than their mom.

It's embarrasing - I was out of town for two weeks, and had my neighbor pick up my mail for me.  While I was gone, the latest issue of CGW (I think) came in with some ridiculously proportioned 38 DDDD charater on the front cover - I can only imagine what my neighbor thought when she saw that.

I've bought three GBAs - one original, two SPs.  Kept each one for about a month, and realized I just didn't enjoy playing 1994 games on a tiny screen with crappy resolution and tinny sound.

I'd really like to know how important DD5.1 audio is in the Xbox version - that might be the selling point for me with regards to PC vs. Xbox
