Re: Gran Turismo Sport OUTRAGE!

The reponses to that post are heartening. It's good to know that there are levels of exploitative sleaze that even gamers won't put up with. I hope the suits take the hint, but I actually hope more that they just run things into the ground until we get another crash. This industry needs a real smack...

Re: What is your Holy Grail?

I thought that this thread was about "Holy Grail" games. The arcade Raiden II is that; reasonably priced and widely available home versions aren't. Others for me: the excellent, undeservedly obscure Game Boy shoot-em-ups ZAS and StarHawk , neither of which I've seen for much less than $200.

Re: Good Computer?

I mentioned earlier that I'm not especially knowledgeable about current gaming hardware, but even I know that buying a CyberPower machine is basically Russian roulette.

Re: SNES Waterworld Soundtrack

Yeah I've seen adapters on ebay for around $25 or so, which seem to be for this purpose. On other forums, I've seen some people say that playing PAL games in the US may cause issues with the music and run speed, but I can't confirm that...maybe it varies from game to game. It does vary. Games devel...

Re: New brand of consoles?

As weird as it sounds, I liked it better when there were two major companies--Nintendo and Sega. There were more exclusives and differences between the same game on each system were much more obvious. I guess we had this again with the 64 vs the PlayStation, but then Xbox has to show up with a tiny...

Re: Dr. EA Robotnik strikes again!

EA Killed Criterion. EA Killed Bullfrog. EA Killed Pandemic. EA Killed visceral. Visceral was a division of EA from the beginning. It wasn't until after Dead Space was a hit that they even had their own branding. Don't compare this to the martyrdom of Bullfrog, a genuinely visionary creative team c...

Re: SNES Waterworld Soundtrack

I'm a moron. Instead of modding an NTSC system to run like a PAL system, it might make more sense to just get a PAL system. It'll run off an American outlet through Nintendo's own NES-002 model power supply. Still a bit much just to hear the music in one game, but there are a few cool European exclu...

Re: SNES Waterworld Soundtrack

There are adapters, but while they get around the region lock, I'm pretty sure you'll have to mod your SNES to run at 50 Hz (PAL frequency) to get the game - and its music - to run at the right speed. And at 50 Hz, the SNES won't work with an American CRT, although flatscreens shouldn't have any iss...

Re: Best Sega Genesis Soundtracks?

Here are some of my favorites. I could have doubled this list, but I decided to just submit it as it is when I realized that I'd spent an hour listening to Genesis music! Earthworm Jim ( "Down the Tubes" ) My favorite music on the Genesis, which is why I stuck it at the top. This song is s...
