    Wrap up and 'winners' of E3...

    ...and when a system's lineup is mostly sequels and re-hashes of existing series (guilty as charged Sony and Nintendo) it's disappointing as well. All in all, there wasn't a *whole* lot of excitement generated by this year's E3 for me. But it's just my personal taste in games. Pissing...

    The great (and unofficial) E3 rant thread

    I must say on the Rare/MS side, I was at first disheartened to hear very little on Perfect Dark, but I must say, the trailer that Rare has on their website for "Grabbed By the Ghoulies" (http://www.rare.co.uk/games/upcoming...ies_movie.html) just OOZES with charm. I'm really looking forward to...

    DJ Turntables

    Re: scratchability of the CD decks--I never claimed it was purely like vinyl--but it is quite awfully close w/ the advent of the CDJ1000s/800s. Zero latency, immediate response, ability to specify pressure sensitivity on the platters--you're good to go for anything from simple baby scratches to...

    DJ Turntables

    Well, regarding needing two decks / audio sources--it all boils down to what you're trying to achieve. If you're interested in making some remixes here and there and maybe doing production work on your own music along with it, sure, you could go part software route. (Though the last time I took...

    DJ Turntables

    Jerome-- You may want to check out the Pionner CDJ800s and CDJ1000s if you're interested in adding a CD based deck to the mix. Both are very friendly to vinyl DJs in that you can essentially perform any kind of scratch or spin on them that you can with vinyl-- much like the 1200s are the...

    DJ Turntables

    1200s are pretty ubiqitous as the decks of choice for most serious DJs. Their reputation for quality makes them the de facto standard--many DJs cut their teeth on 1200s since many nightclubs and bars would have 1200s as part of their set of equipment that a DJ would have to use--so familiarity...

    *** Official "BETTER LUCK TOMORROW" Discussion Thread

    It's interesting to note that Justin Lin grew up in suburban Orange County--and that at one point, in 1992 roughly while Lin would have been a college student / young adult, there was an incident in which four Asian highschoolers, mostly all honors students, turned on a fifth and bludgeoned him...

    Is Malata any good?

    I have a Malata N996 at home and amongst the options in its menu system is whether your video signal should be output in PAL or NTSC--so if you have equipment that can handle the native PAL signal, you should be good to go. Quality wise, I am very satisfied with my Malata. It's been stable...

    Jeremey Are there any specific items in the Citrus series that you are looking for? I'd be VERY interested in picking up the modern end table from you. :) It's one of 3 pieces I'm missing to complete the set... Let me know what you're looking for and I'll scour my catalog for it. I also...

    Tekki (Steel Batallion) import impressions....

    dammit...I had been on the fence for a long while on this game, then started to lean toward not getting it due to issues w/ space, replayability, price... but DAMN, now after reading this I'm gonna just HAVE to get this now. :D An online capable sequel would be so ridiculously over the top :)

    What are the best foreign (non-English OSL) films?

    Steve-- Ahh, you're right. I'd heard the news so far back ago that I'd completely forgotten Dreamworks' involvement. Though I agree with you that the release onto DVD of the original version of the film wouldn't deeply impact the theatrical release of an American version, Dreamworks has...

    Just all the more reason to get yourself a region free player....Christmas isn't too far away now is it? ;)

    What are the best foreign (non-English OSL) films?

    Steve I can't remember if I'd mentioned it or not, so here goes. Madonna's Maverick Films recently bought the rights to this (and another Korean hit, My Wife Is a Gangster), so there is probably little chance of it coming stateside. I don't believe they've announced any remake plans just...

    What are the best foreign (non-English OSL) films?

    Steve-- My Sassy Girl quickly climbed its way on my personal favorites list. It's just more charming each time I view it. (This review-- http://www.kfccinema.com/reviews/com...ssy/sassy.html is what originally piqued my interest) doh! being such the fanatic of asian films that I am, I long...

    What are the best foreign (non-English OSL) films?

    Steve-- I'll reiterate two of my previously mentiond selections for Korean films. * JSA (Joint Security Area) * My Sassy Girl (YupkiJuhGin KeuNyuh) :D My Sassy Girl continues to be an oft requested movie amongst my circle of friends who all come over to my place to partake in my...

    Trading Post : Animal Crossing

    The pissing boy statue is one of the items that Gulliver the seafaring pelican will give you as a reward for saving him when he washes up on shore. I don't believe any of these items are tradable (as are other "rare" items such as Wario's Woods or Baseball). Shame too as I know some people who...

    Glen-- what's your town/name info? I already have all the fruits in the game, so really not interested in gathering more. :) What I'm interested in is the furniture items listed.. Will gladly gen a code for some oranges later tonight when I get home from work though.

    Trading Post : Animal Crossing

    Rusty-- the way it works is that there is a strong (though not definite) chance that each time you hop on the train to travel over to the other town, one of your townsfolk will hop on the train as well and take the chance to set up residence over there. Did some testing w/ a second town and...

    103 million in the fiscal year? ouch what's the source for that?

    MS to buy capcom?

    Don't know how much credence I would lend to the rumor just yet (though I guess the whole Rare deal has burned away some of my cynicism and doubt). I am however rather astonished that Capcom with all their veritable wealth of gaming series and characters is posting negative financial numbers...

    What are the best foreign (non-English OSL) films?

    Steve O-- If you enjoyed Shiri, I'd recommend you check out JSA (I had included purchase links earlier in this thread). Much of the creative talent behind Shiri was also involved in JSA... one of the protagonists from Shiri also is one of the primary characters as well. Along the same lines...

    Mike-- Sounds good. Looks like I'll have to place another mail order for yet another excitebike, but I'll post codes as soon as it arrives. I've got pear trees up the yin yang, so I'll post those up in the morning.

    John-- the max for a city is 15 animals Mark-- the golden fishing rod I hear is tough.. you must catch all the types of fish at least once and then bury a fishing rod in one of the "golden" spots. and then cross your fingers that the sapling doesn't wilt. I'm told that if the tree does...
