+1 to warning for Pirates, Mario & Luigi SSS, and LOTR... something RPG. I can't remember the title, and am too tired and/or lazy to look it up. ;P

Sorry for the delay in posting feedback.

7  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mario Kart DS review [ign] on: November 19, 2005, 06:50:06 AM
I'm enjoying the game so far, but I was hoping for less N64/GC Mario Kart and more SNES/GBA. The SNES tracks they picked seem to be the ones with the most convenient design as opposed to being the most interesting and memorable. I was hoping I'd get a chance to relive the Bowser's Castle and Ghost House courses. I'm also disappointed that an SNES battle map wasn't included in the game.

I think I would have paid double for a simple remake of the original. ;P

On the other hand, it's the first actual DS game I've purchased since acquiring the system early last summer. And I do like the new Luigi's Mansion track....
8  Non-Gaming / Trading Forum / LF: Nintendo DS, GC Memory Card, Misc. Games on: November 19, 2005, 03:08:11 AM
(Also posted at Octopus Overlords.)

Greetings, I'm looking for a few items:

- A Nintendo DS (in, obviously, respectable condition)
- Interesting/well-reviewed DS games-- let me know what you have available

- A Nintendo Gamecube memory card. What capacity are we up to now? It doesn't need to be the biggest available, but I'm looking for one of the larger sizes. I prefer a first-party one, unless you can show me that your third-party one got impeccable reviews.

- [DS] Nintendogs (one of them)
- [DS] Yoshi Touch & Go
- [DS] Kirby: Canvas Curse
- [GC] The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
- [GC] Mario Power Tennis
- [GC] Lego Star Wars
- [PS2] Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

- Other Star Wars games for the GBA/GC/PS2


For most things, I'd be looking to pay via PayPal. Send me a PM! Thank you very much.

I'm interested in Wind Waker, though I think all I have you'd be interested in is cash.

As well, I'm located in Canada, but let me know the price you have in mind for the game first and then we'll worry about any extra shipping should you not mind shipping to me.


Thanks!

12  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Happy 6th birthday Dreamcast! on: September 09, 2005, 02:40:08 PM
Quote from: "ChaoZ"
I still think the graphics on the Dreamcast look somewhat better than on the PS2. Less muddy it seems. *shrug*


I agree. That's something I always thought, too.


I enjoyed my time with my Dreamcast. I logged many hours with Skies of Arcadia, Shenmue, NBA 2K1, and Unreal Tournament. What else was there? Legacy of Kain, Grandia 2, Tony Hawk, Worms World Party, Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

I guess I spent a whole spring/summer with it, thinking back. But then I bought my PS2, and soon got my P4. ;P
13  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Considering a DS. Any RPG's on the way? on: July 26, 2005, 03:37:45 PM
I love being able to play all the great GBA games I've missed out on (though I wish I could play the GB and GBC ones, as well), as I've never owned a gameboy system. But I can't find a thing to play for the DS itself! I'm happy waiting, but the DS is starting to feel a little bit like the N64 to me with respect to its scant game library. I hope the dual screen thing isn't scaring developers away-- heck, I don't even care if they use the second screen. I just want to see some interesting games for a Nintendo handheld this powerful.

I might get the new Advance Wars game. And I've been looking at Meteos and Bomberman. But I just can't imagine spending a lot of time with a puzzler solo.

I'm looking for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight, and possibly other flight sims that would be good for someone with very little gaming/flight sim experience.

Would most likely be looking to buy via PayPal at this time, as I don't really have any newer games to trade.

Send me a PM, if you like. Thank you!

Quote from: "tripwire"
CanadaSys also looks very good, but they're quite a distance away, and location is a big factor for me.


I take it you don't have a car? Or just don't want to have to drive for half an hour to get service? ;P

But I think you're definitely doing the right thing by staying away from MDG. I've heard some bad stories.
20  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Need some advice for new system purchase on: June 15, 2005, 01:00:34 AM
Right now, $1300 CAD is around $1040 USD, corruptrelic.

I agree that you seem to be paying a bit much for that package, tripwire-- though it might be a stretch to get quite as good a deal as you could from a U.S. site. Some of the best "good part" pre-assembled systems I've seen sold in Toronto can be found at Canada Sys.

$979 CAD ($780 USD) will get you:

AMD 64 3500+ (939)
Asus A8N-E motherboard
OCZ 512 dual-channel RAM (add $60 to make it a gig)
ATI X600Pro 256 (PCI-E)
160 GB S-ATA
floppy drive
16X LG DVD-ROM
16x LG DVD-RW
"Tsunami Case" (w/450W 2-fan PSU)
on-board 8-channel sound
on-board ethernet
56k modem
Altec Lansing 2.1 speakers
"multimedia keyboard and optical mouse"


If you only want a 3000+, knock it down to $835 CAD. Mind you, that doesn't include an OS-- they'll install XP Home for you for $99, or Pro for $165. And you'd have to get a monitor separately, as well. Though you can pick up a decent LCD display with 12ms response time for under $350. I got the BenQ FP71G for $300 a couple of weeks ago. (LG's probably a little more of a trusted brand for displays, though. Samsung would be great, but they're quite expensive.)

I guess I'm really not saving you a ton of money, am I? Still, I prefer Asus to MSI, and LG to NEC... but that's just me. You might want to see if any of Canada Sys's cheaper systems would meet your needs. It might just be a case of swapping in a better videocard.

Really, I can only suggest that you research each and every major component that's going into your system. You're not going to get the low price offered by major assemblers, but you are going to know what's going into your computer. I also recommend PC Village and Infonec, though they probably can't beat Canada Sys's system prices. Good luck!

Perhaps the Enterprise had an encounter with an omnipotent being that went amiss, and were sent hundreds of years into the past, shrunk, and beamed into your computer.

Try opening all ports and disabling your firewall. The crew should be able to find what they need to get home if they can make it out onto the internet.
24  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / pentium vs. amd on: June 06, 2005, 05:33:22 PM
I got my information from a source published when only FX-series chips had been manufactured for 939. I believe that explains my error--I apologize.

That said, everything I read still says that 754 will not support dual channel, as the memory controller is on the processor chip. So I don't understand. Do the NForce boards have a separate controller chip that overrides the processor?
25  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / pentium vs. amd on: June 06, 2005, 04:46:19 PM
Quote from: "Sterling"
AMD has supported dual channel RAM since the original NForce motherboards way back when.  It's a 2% performance increase in most cases, though, so it isn't really worth considering.


My reference materials indicated that the socket 754 versions support only single channel. Is this changed, in recent versions? Socket 754 chips, of course, are still widely available. And no AMD chips of this generation support DDR2, right?

Quote
The best performing gaming CPU is AMD'd Athlon FX55.


Which, of course, costs $800+. I wouldn't think that any sane individual would purchase this solely for the purpose of gaming, but a short trip around the internet informs me otherwise.
26  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / pentium vs. amd on: June 06, 2005, 03:30:37 PM
To my knowledge, value is really the key. At my workplace, you can get a boxed AMD 64 3000+ for $189.99 CAD. The comparable Intel chip @ 3.0 GHz (either socket type) is $239.99. The reason AMD names their processors differently is because they can't compete when it comes to clock speed-- the 3000+ is closer to 2.0 GHz than 3.0. But it's just because they work in different ways. Intel is moving away from naming their own chips by clock rate, anyway.

Also bear in mind the following:

- Currently, only the AMD 64 is 64-bit, meaning the new XP x64 OS is designed for it. (Some of Intel's workstation processors are also 64-bit, but last I checked they run $1000+ and aren't at all practical for home systems.)

- On the flipside, only Intel P4s perform hyper-threading.

- As well, I believe it's only Intel chips and compatible motherboards that support dual-channel RAM configurations and the new DDR2 RAM. What I've read suggests that AMD will be on board in 2006, however.

29  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / This season of 24 ended great! on: May 27, 2005, 03:51:53 AM
I still enjoy the show, but the novelty is completely gone. So much so that I think it would be a higher-impact experience reduced to a six-hour miniseries. There's just far too much filler, and too many interesting subplots that go unresolved or wind up having no significance.

Every computer they find gives them just enough information to keep going. But never enough to triumph-- not until the very end. Which, of course, makes sense given the format. But if you're going to string me along, I don't what to realize it so easily. If stupid Marwan was so dedicated to his cause, he should have killed himself and destroyed his silly Achilles'-heel PDA the moment he had confirmation that the missile was in the air. That's it? The recovery of a shot-up pocket PC saves the day?

And it annoys me that they claimed only Sutherland would be back this season. While it made the surprise appearances of Haysbert, Bernard, Ciccolella, and Aylesworth all the more meaningful, I couldn't help but feel disgusted that I'd been set up. Really, I kind of wish they'd take CTU out of the show, even though it would betray the premise. And you wonder if that'll happen next season-- but I wouldn't bet on it. Not after many of us thought it would be the case this year.

Despite that they never would have been hired in the real world, Chloe and Edgar really are a lot of fun to watch. But after the plethora of throwaway "main characters" introduced this season (Driscoll, Sarah, Marianne), I find myself longing for George Mason, Ryan Chapelle, Gael Ortega, and a full-time David Palmer. A surviving Claudia and returning Kate could have been decent characters, as well. Though Devane (Heller), Frain (Paul Raines), and Itzin (Logan) were fine additions to the cast. I also appreciated Morrison (Buchanan), Cross (Curtis), and Raver (Audrey), even though their characters didn't really go anywhere. And the family of terrorist sleepers was actually engaging, though over the top and stereotypical. All in all, it wasn't a terrible year for casting.

I've still yet to make my upgrade, but I still expect to go with the dual-tuner 500.

What do you mean when you say "bad recordings", PaulBot? Is the video itself mangled? Does the hardware/software fail to record correctly? Are you having A/V synch problems?

I'm actually the furthest thing from an expert-- in fact, you probably know quite a bit more on the subject than I. But the folks at TV-Cards.com are quite knowledgeable if you want to attempt a fix.

Advance Wars 1 & 2
Fire Emblem
Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town

I'm also looking for Mario Power Tennis, for the Gamecube.


I'm primarily looking to pay cash right now, via PayPal (or money order, if need be). That said, I have plenty to trade-- not a lot of new, exciting stuff. But if you're looking for an older game, I might have it. I also have a few DVDs I'm looking to part with, and many music CDs.
