Is this a good deal on a PS3?

JLH:  Thanks for the reply.  But, to my understanding, the original 60GB PS3 had good backwards compatibility because basically all of the PS2 hardware was built in.  <br><br>These 2008 era, 80-GB ones use software emulation.  I wanted to know if anyone has any experience using o...

Black "spiritual successor", Bodycount, released

Let's keep in mind though, we really can't trust these professional reviewers to give proper credit to any fast arcade-type game;  they will *always* get blasted as "vapid" and "shallow".

CASTLE-friggin-VANIA 25th Anniversary project

Video Games making kids fat?

I think the problem is cheap bad food, as noted in prior posts.

"So Bad, They're Good" Games?

There's nothing redeeming about Action 52, but the sheer volume of content it has provides an ample amount of material to make fun of.  There's literally hours of video on Youtube dedicated to mocking that game.

What Do You Like Shooting in Video Games?

I think Nazis are passe.  I'd rather shoot Mugabe and his followers in a game myself.
