Will having a really strong password on my PSN account prevent this from happening to me?

[QUOTE=ptdebate]I have to agree with Vexer. The fact that this made news is proof that it's a rare occurrence. Abstaining from digital content in reaction is like saying "I will never own anything valuable so that in case my house gets robbed, I can't lose much."[/QUOTE]<br />To be fair, someone in ...

Most Anticipated Games of 2015?

[QUOTE=nesfan][QUOTE=nesfan]Only in Japan. It's being localized by NIS America and they haven't announced if they're going to localize the Wii version. They could but nothing's certain yet. We just know they're bringing over the Wii U and 3DS versions.[/QUOTE]And of course a day after I post that, I...

Native demo - Atari Jaguar!!!

I'm playing the "still worth playing" portion of any average PS1 game.  This should also take about 4 seconds.  [tongue]

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

Okay, I've given the topic some more thought, and I think there is a little something to Jon's theory.  I think, though, that the major issue is with the idea that 2D gaming was suppressed (which is, I think, inaccurate language at best).  There is also the issue of the technology he is ta...

The Derailment of the 3d Genre

[QUOTE=Jon]It's hard to explain, Sony's and Microsoft's system just have this overly digitized look that emphasizes dark colors. It's not pure. It's fine is you like war games in which the atmosphere looks like a wasteland. The Dreamcast has blurry 2d graphics, sort of like the N64. And since it's b...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

[QUOTE=Jon]There's nothing to talk about until someone gives me a credible explanation as to why advanced 2d technology was squashed in the early 90s.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />Not until you explain to <em>me</em> why 2D technology was squashed in the early 90s.  Who squashed it?  How?  To w...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

Jon, I really want to understand your point (in no small part because I dislike the PS1 so much). However, I'm unclear by what you mean about the Jaguar having a "cleaner look," or what you meant previously when you said something about digitized games on other systems. I also don't understand what ...

The Derailment of the 3d Genre

Well guys, to each their own I guess.  If you'll excuse me, I have to go play the best 8-bit system of all time: The 7800.  Man, have you seen how flicker free Robotron is on this thing?  Good luck getting that out of the NES.  <img rel="lightbox" alt="[smile]" class="bbc_img" sr...
