    Microsoft won't publish "Psychonauts," XSN Sports titles being "rested"

    Interesting news from Gamespot: Microsoft apparently has exited an agreement to publish Tim Schaefer's "Psychonauts." I'm disappointed but not surprised, given the lack of recent news (or really, any news) about this title since its announcement. I hope Schaefer pulls it together and finds a...

    Question about signal loss through BNC-to-RCA adapters

    The setup: I have several component-video sources (HDTV cable box, DVD player, PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube, and occasionally my computer.) To accommodae all these, I bought a used Extron HDTV component-video switcher (six in, one out) off eBay a couple of years ago. The sources are all in close...

    NFL 2K3 delayed, possibly retitled. . .

    . . . per IGN. Apparently, 2K4 -- or whatever it will be called, will be released Sept. 1, giving Madden a full month's head start on the market. Not really a shrewd move if you're looking to overcome last year's sales deficit. The name also might be changed to play up the ESPN license, which...

    MVP Baseball owners -- 16:9 anamorphic "cheat"

    In the new issue of GMR (the EB rag,) it lists a 16:9 anamorphic "cheat" for both Xbox and PS2 versions of MVP Baseball 2003. To turn it on, hold down both triggers for three seconds, then push left on the digital pad. To turn it off, hold down both triggers for three seconds and push right...

    Anyone play games "stretched?"

    I'm curious as to whether anyone out there with a widescreen TV plays their games "stretched." Or it is a shameful thing to play a game in anything less than its OAR? I ask because, well, I have to admit that I do. Let me explain . . a couple of months ago, I upgraded to a Sony Cineza...

    EB deal on Xbox LOTR:FOTR

    Searched to see if this had been mentioned but couldn't find it, so I thought I'd bring it up. EB is selling The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Rings for Xbox for $9.99. It's available for that price on both the Web site and in stores, or at least at my local store. This is the...

    Any new SVS cylinder subs on the horizon?

    Hey, the new box subs are great, but some of us still like the old cylinders. Has anyone heard of any new additions to the line coming our way? Maybe like a PC-Ultra (drool. . .)

    Mafia for Xbox canceled?

    I had preordered this from EBgames.com. Got a message today saying they won't be getting any copies in, and that my order had been canceled. News sites aren't reporting a cancellation. Anybody heard anything on this one?

    Xbox, PS2 and network add-ons. . .

    So, I received a notice in my inbox from EBgames.com stating that the Xbox Live Communicator I ordered will be released on Nov. 5. And it got me thinking. . . what is this "communicator" -- and by extension, the Xbox Live service -- but a hardware add-on? From the beginning, Microsoft has...

    Game suggestions for older consoles. . .

    After regretting for years the fact that I gave away my old Genesis/CD/32x and Saturn, I have managed to reacquire both. I also bought a ColecoVision (my first console as a kid!) and I've found an NES and Super Nintendo cheap. As long as I can get the stuff cheap, I see no reason to pass on...

    Some new additions to the family. . .

    Found a great independent game store here today, and for about $150 reacquainted myself with some old friends I thought I'd never see again -- a Sega Genesis/CD system, a Saturn, a Power Base Converter so I play old Master System games, and some titles for each platform. Years ago in college...

    NFL Fever 2003 tidbits. . .

    Saw display box for this at my local Gamespot today. The back of the box expressly listed these features: Widescreen HDTV Xbox Live Xbox Live support is, of course, nothing new. But last year's game had no true widescreen, and HDTV support -- although it probably means just 480p -- is a...

    Need advice re: Dreamcast VGA boxes

    So, I have this crazy idea to get a VGA box for my Dreamcast, and then run the signal through a VGA-to-component transcoder to get 480p graphics on my Sony KV32-XBR400. The problem is, the first-party VGA box is rarer than a fine steak these days, and there are many third-party boxes of dubious...

    new sub from SVS announced. . .

    If someone else has seen this already, I apologize. I searched the forum for links to the news, but couldn't find any. . . That said, SVS fans might want to check out their page. They have announced the big momma . .. and I mean BIG momma.

    Post Star Wars: Racer Revenge secrets here!

    Anybody enjoying this one as much as I am? Anyway, I know there are at least eight secrets (including five characters) hidden in this baby. So far, I've found one. I'm looking for folks who have discovered others. To get the ball rolling, here's one: If you play as Sebulba in tournament...
