To answer your question though - the old PS1s were crap and were guarenteed to burn out after so many hours (cheap plastic holding the CD lens in place). The remade ones were much better in that aspect.

i have an old PSX which is on its way to death - cinematic videos are stuttery, and it's failed to load a game once, so far.  based on the symptoms, the laser assembly is malfunctioning, which is apparently a common problem with these units

i like the shift to new software. more functionality is always good. 

my only suggestion would be to disable the displaying of the 'print' button.

Although I do hope they quickly roll past the review style where they quote other reviewers within the game review


yeah, what's up with this??  it's laziness.  and it seems to manifest as

"So-and-so from gaming-website said 'Blah blah blah' regarding such-and-such about the game, and I happen to agree with that."

i had a girlfriend once who collected game consoles... had boxes and boxes of peripherals and cables, and a fair number of games - but in the year+ that we went out, i never saw her playing much of anything besides DDR, Samba de Amigo, Master of Orion II and HoMM III.

i've not seen the Alternators before...  Tracks was one of my favorite Autobots, so i'm tempted to get that one... and Wheeljack was my first ever Transformer, but the reissue is weird.  and what's up with the Grimlock/Ravage/Shockwave rejiggerations??  and Optimus Prime as a pickup truck?  i'm not OK with this.

Astrotrain still turns into a train (as well as a space shuttle), check the link in the first post.  it looks less than cool, but that functionality is still there.  i'm still wondering why they picked that one to re-release...
776  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Books Read in 2006 (Keep it Updated) on: May 30, 2006, 01:32:05 AM
Calculus for Cats - Kenn Amdahl and Jim Loats

an often amusing read about the diabolic obfuscation of the mathematics of calculus as perpetrated by an alien species - the furry household feline.  it explains the core concepts thoroughly, and gives illuminating examples in a way that calc textbooks (and profs) tend to gloss over, or ignore entirely.  these involve catmobiles and headlights on hilly roads, quadratic mice and cats ice-skating circles and spirals, holding a string...  i really wish i had this book a few years ago - i now have a workable idea of what derivatives, the rules of differentiating, and limits are (their definitions and appropriate usage), and that my downfall was really an inadequate grasp of algebra*.  the knowledge i gained from this book would have actually let me complete the class i was in at the time, instead of succumbing to an ineffectual teacher and a dense textbook.  think it's time to try again.

* - i'm going to read their Algebra Unplugged book next...

The cuts made to this game after all this time...  What have the devs been up to?  It takes years to carve out all those features? :lol:


i first heard of it in 2003.  apparently they had a helluva time trying to get the AI working so everybody (NPCs, animals, mutants, etc) was off doing their thing and also would interact with each other in a believable way - imagine that...  

so that was the main reason it was delayed.

plotwise, i *hate how they wrapped it up at the end of the first game, then made a somewhat plausible excuse for a sequel - then when it really should have ended there, kept going with two more titles.  bleh.
