Re: PS2 HDMI Adapter

So the way I understand these cables is that they don't offer any sort of upscaling and are more like a good, clean component cable. These types of cables aren't a replacement for an HDMI mod but should offer a better visual than composite and are likely to have minimal lag. I have something simila...

Re: Records vs. CDs vs. digital music

As a kid I actually preferred the sound of cassettes - they sounded warm and organic next to CDs, you could makes copies or your own mixes, they were cheaper and more portable and you didn't have to worry about skipping - but they weren't durable (they would stretch and distort in a way that a prope...

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

I liked but didn't love Upgrade , although I think it has grown on me over the last two months since I've watched it. For the tiny budget it's a technical marvel and it's trim and efficient in an old-school John Carpenter sort of style. I actually think the trailer played up the comedic aspect consi...

Re: Most Innovative Games?

The Portal games are unlike anything else, even if they are technically in the Half-Life universe.

Re: Easy SRPGs?

I've always heard people say that FFT is a hard game, but I don't get that. It is challenging, but I think the secret to success is a lot of grinding by replaying battles to get your levels up. You'll lose here and there, and it sucks to lose 30 minutes into a battle and have to start over, but gen...

Re: Upcoming Holiday Games?

There's a 2D beat-em-up coming out for the Switch and Steam (it's already available on Steam via Early Access) called The Takeover that seems like it's trying to outdo Streets of Rage - although it's actually a one-person project that was in development for years before the recent Streets of Rage 4 ...

Re: National Black Cat Awareness Month.

Took a picture of my bad cat helping me move furniture this morning. I think she's an American Shorthair. She actually a handful of white hairs on her chest but you won't even notice them unless you are looking for them:

Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

I started playing drums again after an 11-year absence about a month-and-a-half ago. I originally went back to them as a way to get some physical exercise while doing something that would be more stimulating than riding a stationary bike, but they've unexpectedly become a substitute for gaming as we...
