    *** Official HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS Review Thread

    I was really disappointed with the story. To be honest, I didn't think it made any sense at all, it was as if they were going out of their way to screw themselves over for absolutely no reason.

    Dog Help (too much barking)

    Not sure if this has been posted, but since I remember there being some xenogear fans here, go checkout the new Xenosaga movies at ps2.ign.com. There is some cinematic that is split into 5 parts, as well as some in-battle footage.

    Lots of CD Player questions...

    Ok, I've decided to get a dedicated cd player for my system, and have a few questions. Let's make sure I have my facts straight first... If a cd player is hooked up to a receiver using either an optical cable or digital coaxial cable, then the DACs in the receiver are the ones that get used...
