Re: So I'm not sure if my PS3 is dying

Just make sure if it is the GPU he is going to reball it, not reflow it. A reflow will temporarily fix the problem but won't last forever. A reball is a real fix.

Re: So I'm not sure if my PS3 is dying

It is not complicated. Anyone willing to invest a couple of hours can do it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPq4PaUSSUs This guy does a pretty good job showing the disassembly. My advice is when removing screws line them up in the order you take them out, so when you put them back you have an idea ...

Re: Most Addicting Video Game of All Time?

Most fun? Maybe not. Most addicting? Civilization without a doubt.

Whether it is Civ 1 or all the way through 5, if I start one of these games I'll be lucky if I don't lose my entire day. Just....one...more...turn.............

Re: So I'm not sure if my PS3 is dying

And it's alive! I think. Disassembled the whole unit, and as suspected the original thermal paste was just some dry flaky globs at this point. Cleaned off the ol' RSX and Cell with ethanol, applied some arctic silver and reassembled(with a couple of extra screws at the end, just like everything I've...

Re: Sonic Drift (Game Gear)

I played Sonic Drift 2 a lot back in the day and always liked it. You have to navigate with the map to have a chance, but I always thought it was a pretty good game.

Re: 2016/2/27: Genesis: Clue, Death and Return of Superman, The, Toy Story

Clue is my absolute favorite board game. I'm disappointed that this doesn't look like a good version of it. I might still pick it up just out of my love of Clue. After all, the biggest problem I have with it is finding someone else to play with me, so I may just be the target audience for this.

Re: Games everyone seems to like but you

There are lots of popular games that I don't care for, but the one game it seems like I should like but don't really is Mario 64. I admit maybe I just haven't given it a proper chance yet, but every time I start playing it I just don't seem to be having all that much fun. The camera is annoying to d...

Re: Blu Ray Sucks

I think this might be more a PS3 problem than blu ray one. Best bet is always use a player that isn't online capable. It wont have any of the new DRM features but the disc still pretty much has to play to avoid breaking the spec. Was you PS3 connected to the net at the time? Or did your offline PS3 ...

Re: Ad Blockers?

I adblock pretty much everything on the web. Ads are horrible, annoying, ineffective, misleading and insanely resource intensive. For the most part, I don't really feel bad because most sites I visit I don't even like very much and don't care if they disappear tomorrow. But I got videogamecritic.com...

Re: Basic Cell Phone Users?

Ha I don't even have a phone! Lol. I do have a Galaxy S4(just sold the S3) that I use at home with wifi but it isn't connected as a phone and doesn't leave the house. Use it for skype and a couple of IM apps to keep in touch. Truthfully, I liked the QWERTY phones more than the basic basic phones. My...
