    Cat Power/Chan Marshall

    I somehow missed out on this artist-who has several albums out already, but I've listened to a couple of songs after a recommendation on a Fiona Apple fan site & I love what I've heard. Can someone who's more familiar with her recommend an album to start out with and similar artist...

    5.1 speaker placement - DD vs. SACD & DVD-A

    I'm moving into a new dedicated theater room shortly (yet to be constructed) & I'm wrestling with a speaker placement that is the closest to ideal for all of these formats, but it seems that I need to compromise one or the other. There's also the issue of back surround channels for DD-EX...

    Wal Mart 5.88 DVD sale

    I noticed a large display of DVDs for $5.88 at my local WalMart - I think I saw at least 20 different titles, maybe more. I'm sorry I can't tell you exactly what they were...my memory fails me. There was a crowd of people going through them...so you may want to act fast to take advantage of this.

    Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb

    I've been playing the Xbox demo of this game, which is in the March issue of the Official Xbox Magazine. Although the demo is fairly brief, my experience with the demo has convinced me to purchase the game when it is released...hopefully later this month, February 18th. The game is developed...

    Moto GP Live/Full version question

    I just got this game...don't know why I waited so long. :) My question is: I'm not happy with the way the controls are mapped in the full version of the game. Specifically, I can't find a setup for manual transmission that suits me. I understand that the Live version of the game allows you to...

    Bargain-priced game recommendation for this weekend. (Xbox)

    Wal-Mart has Splashdown for the Xbox for $19.82, so I picked up a copy today. My first impression is that it's a fun game, looks good & has solid control. It supports custom soundtracks. :emoji_thumbsup: So far, the waves are nothing on the level of either of the Wave Race games, but the...

    Toshiba TW40X81

    I see that Best Buy is selling this model online right now for $1399. Isn't this an older model, and what are the disadvantages of this model compared to the newer Toshibas? At this price, I am thinking this might be a good purchase for me. (and my limited budget) Here's the Best Buy page...

    Jerry Cantrell - Degradation Trip

    Has anyone found this in stores yet? I'd like to hear some impressions of it before making a purchase. For the record, I like Alice In Chains, but I never listened to Cantrell's previous solo record & I don't know what to expect. I've checked out the samples at the Amazon.com page here, but...

    3 word reviews - my weekend Xbox rentals.

    Burnout - "Generic arcade racer" Spy Hunter - "It's too dark" Sigh. I wasn't expecting much from Burnout, and that's what it delivered...not much. A nice looking, but generic arcade racer. High point is probably the large amount of traffic. Spy Hunter. This game seems like it would be...
