Trailers as a substitute for playing for busy people

As I get older my life becomes busier and I have less time to play games, but I keep hearing about the latest games and want at least a glimpse of them. So, I've "downgraded" from buying games to...

Re: Will the new $299 PlayStation 3 price entice you to buy?

I have an Xbox 360 and there's only two PS3 exclusives I care about: MGS4 and The Last Guardian. Maybe when it's $200.

Big screen reruns

Even though Twilight is a pretty vapid movie, I noticed that a month before New Moon premiered, some theaters reran Twilight. I'm interested when old movies rerun in mainstream theaters because...

Re: Time management in retail

I might be able to work as fast as he shows me, but I also get varying demands from photo customers.

Time management in retail

Hey folks, I'd like to ask you advice about work. I work in a convenience store and I have a lot of different duties. I spend half my time in the one hour photo and half my time doing a bunch of...

Re: I'm sick

Did you get a flu shot? I just did. It's the usual one, not for H1N1, but it's better than nothing.

Re: Who watched the Watchmen?

I read an interview that David Hayter pitched a Watchmen miniseries to HBO back in 2000 but they turned it down because of the cost. I agree that it would have been better.

There was a lot...

Re: Red Dot of Death

Are you recommending this Linksys router for the household hub or as a bridge adapter for just the Xbox? I'm already using a Linksys WRT54G for the household hub, and it works fine. Just before I...

Hey folks. Thankfully, my Xbox 360 is only a few months old and is working so far, but the wifi adapter I got for it is having trouble. I bought a used Microsoft one used a couple months ago and it...

upconverting DVD player w/o extra interlacing

My new upconverting DVD player, a Memorex MVD2047, has a playback problem. Whenever it plays a video with 60 Hz on/off flicker (such as the brief invincibility in many NES games), it shows the...

How good is upconverted DVD?

I just got a 32 inch 720p LCD TV, and I'm wondering if I should get an upconverting DVD player or stick with my existing one. My current player is connected by component video and outputting 480p in...

First High School Reunion

Hey folks, I just got back from my ten year high school reunion in central Florida. Over two days we got together at two different bar/grills and a beach pavillion. Some guys looked a little balder...

Dirt cheap Guitar Hero/Rock Band controller?

Hey all. I've been very casually renting and playing the Guitar Hero games, just with the regular PS2 controller. I just finished playing all the GHs that let me do it with the PS2 controller. Now...

Re: Gamefly Inquiry

Yeah, Gamefly works great for me too. I wish I could keep a queue of 100 games instead of just 50. I have a backlog of games from years ago I'm getting around to now, and I have to keep all the...

Re: Next Generation Consoles

LordFarid, I sadly agree that Japanese games fell way behind Western games after the jolt of jumping to 3D in the late 1990s. The latest telling example of their decline is that the recently...

Re: Kojima Talks PS3 Limitations

Maybe the audio in MGS4 is uncompressed. Most Bluray movies use uncompressed audio. I think that's a wasteful use of disc space, but maybe Kojima's a spec snob?

As for LO, if it's anything like...

Re: "That" Game

Re: What the hell made FF7 so valuable!?

What surprises me is that a game that sold millions of copies when it was new could cost so much now. I understand that small-run games like Chrono Trigger or Panzer Dragoon Saga will cost a lot,...

Cheap long-distance glasses?

Nowadays I notice that I can't see distant objects very well, but I'm balking at the cost of an eye exam and prescription glasses. I can buy reading glasses at a drug store with no prescription for...

Re: Former Xbox Exec Proclaims Death of Consoles in 5-10 Years

Consoles will always be a big segment of the market as long as they're simpler to use and cheaper than PCs. Sandy Duncan says high cost will make console hardware development risky, but that goes...

Re: Online Distribution
