Re: Offensive Icons?

I have no problem with the "Chicks Dig This" icon. It's just your observation.

The "May Contain Hotties" icon seems a bit sensual.

Re: eBooks and video games

Eliminating physical games won't really happen as long as Gamestop and larger stores like Wal-Mart and Best Buy have any say- good luck getting them to stock consoles that they won't be able to sell any games for. Gamestop in particular faces an existential threat from any sort of digital-only cons...

Re: Why did the Dreamcast fail?

Read an article a few months ago about this, but I can't remember where (aside from the fact that Yahoo! had it on their home page). Oh well, I can remember the gist of the story. After the Saturn failed, Sega hired a new CEO for their American division. He helped bring the Dreamcast to fruition, an...

Re: Middle Class Video Games/Video Games Publishers/Developers dying these days?

I've read in a marketing book that it's bad for a company to be "caught in the middle." The example they used was J.C. Penny; they're too cheap to compete against finer stores, like Neiman Marcus, but too expensive to go up against Walmart, Target, etc. It's not so different in the videoga...

Re: 2015/12/26: Philips CD-i: Caesars World of Gambling, Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia

An encyclopedia on the CD-I? Well, I guess it makes sense. After all, the CD-I was a multimedia system. That means it has games and MORE. We have some PC-based encyclopedias on CDs, and they can be useful. They're older, but I trust them more than Wikipedia, and they don't need an internet connectio...

Re: Favorite sitcoms

It's hard for me to list my favorite of anything, so I'll list some sitcoms I like which are worthy, but overlooked. [*] I Married Joan 50's sitcom, similar to I Love Lucy . Joan Davis plays the wife of a judge. Jim Backas (Mr. Howl from Gilligans Island , the voice of Mr. Magoo) plays her husband. ...

Re: Laser Disc Arcade Games

Yeah it was Star Trek 2, I played this one in the arcades when it first came out. It was too hard and too expensive to play. Also a lot of these games had "stay put disc error" and stopped working. Yessir, Astron Belt used a the Genesis Effect from Star Trek 2 for background footage in on...
