    Deciding which University to go to...

    I would suggest waiting on U of W. It has a fantastic engineering department with an outstanding co-op program. The co-op will partly pay for your education, and will help you decide if you really want to be an engineer. The real work experience lends itself to solid job offers upon completion...

    *** Official "LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING" Discussion Thread

    I apologize if this has already been asked but after listening to Peter Jackson's commentary I am curious who was originally cast to play Strider/Aragorn? During the commentaries it is mentioned that this person did not work out and was recast after only a few short days. I am wondering what...

    *** Official Splinter Cell (X-Box) Review & Discussion Thread

    Morgan, If you were expecting Santa to get you a XBOX why not just ask him to get you those other three games you like at the same time. As it is only November 18th, you still have plenty of time to post that letter to the North Pole. You could e-mail Santa but since you are asking for all...

    So Ron, how's this years dvd of the year lookin so far? :-)

    I do hope Ron lets the HTF membership vote on the DVD of the Year. I think it could work well if Ron nominated five (or possibly ten) DVD's, and then let the membership make the final decision in a poll. Chris

    DVD Review HTF REVIEW: "Lord Of The Rings Extended Edition" (with screenshots)

    Hi Charles, I have the afternoon off as my son is sick (sent home from day-care) so I quickly checked that scene on my Panasonic RP-91 and did not notice a problem. I would exchange it if I were you. Chris

    AOTC & LOTR:EE/SE store price reports (threads merged)

    At FutureShop this morning I purchased AOTC for $25.99 CDN and the Gift Edition of Fellowship of the Ring for $77.99 CDN. The four-disk edition of the Fellowship of the Ring was priced at $39.99 but it may ring up differently at the cash register. I almost forgot to mention that I had to ask...

    Is Xbox live also trying to sell MS Routers

    If XBOX Live is a great success I would not be surprised to see other router manufacturers with packaging stating "XBOX LIVE READY!". This is simply good business sense in my book. Of course I owen MS stock so I may be biased. Chris

    Gamespot have MetalGearSubstance...on XBox

    If I had to choose between two stealth games, it still looks like SplinterCell is the clear winner in this category. It is pretty sad when a game actually runs worse on faster equipment. Chris

    DeathRow Review

    I still cannot seem to find this game. You would think that retailers like FutureShop would try to carry as many different XBOX titles as possible. I called a local EB and they do not have it either. What a pain in the ass! I want the game now and cannot find it. My luck I will finally find it...

    Bargains at Amazon's canadian site

    I ordered "24" Season One on Wednesday afternoon for $50.55 CDN (including taxes and delivery) and it was in my super mailbox this morning (Friday). I am impressed as I only got the e-mail saying it was being mailed Thursday afternoon. Chris

    Xbox Controllers-disturbing trend?

    I thought I was one of the only people that prefers the original XBOX controller. I have three originals and one S-Controller. That way any guests can choose which ever they prefer. Chris

    Any Canadian members use DVDHype.com?

    There are two companies in Canada that do this: HollyWebDVD based in Calgary; and DVDHype out of Montreal. I live in Cantley Quebec, which is just north of Ottawa, and found the shipping time for HollyWebDVD to be four days minimum to eastern Canada. On the plus side HollyWebDVD has...

    Spoooooky Games?

    The game that creeped me out is Halo. It scared the hell out of me when the Flood first showed up. Even when replaying the game on harder levels, I dreaded "discovering" the Flood. Chris

    TimeSplitters 2

    I am going to revise my initial review of this game. I have now completed the single person Story Mode and most of the Arcade League. The game has several limitations on the XBOX: 1. The graphics are poorly done. I have come to expect quite a bit more on the XBOX. It does not look bad but...

    Surround sound a must for gamers. Post your set-up.

    I think Dolby Digital and Surround SOund is over hyped in both movies and gaming. :D My main system: Pioneer Elite 720 Panasonic RP91 AVM-20 Two Bryston 4B ST One Bryston 6B ST Five Paradigm Studio 40's Two Paradigm Studio 100's Dual Tempest Sonosub QSC RMX 1500 Beringer...

    The Lord of the Rings The Two Towers Full Review.....

    Looks like a rental for me when the XBOX version becomes available. I cannot justify buying a game knowing I will be able to complete it in one sitting (or a weekend for all three characters). Chris

    TimeSplitters 2

    I should mention that I read many controller complaints at other gaming sites, not at the HTF. Chris

    East Coast Skiing

    If you are willing to travel a bit further a field I would highly recommend Mont Tremblant in Quebec. It is a beautiful resort, the skiing is excellent, and with the curency exchange, Americans can do well for themselves. Chris

    HTF REVIEW: "Beauty and the Beast" (Highly Recommended) (with screenshots)

    Actually I think it is threads like this that is causing the movie studios to ignore the online community. As the HTF is well aware online advertising is going down or is non-existent, and now some of the studios (Universal) are no longer sending out screeners to the online review sites. Can...
