    Kung Fu Chaos - Too frikken cool, must buy

    Just picked up OXM a couple days back, and tried Kung Fu Chaos with a couple buddies tonight. And I must say this is just a blast to play. Beautiful environments, super fun gameplay. And even a hell of a lot of single player challenges. Going out tomorrow morning and picking it up. Any...

    Panzer Dragoon Orta: Just a pretty picture?

    Very sweet looking game, fun gameplay, but a little short for my tastes. I finished it on Easy, Normal and Hard in under 10 hours. this includes all the Sub scenarios as well. Didn't open all of Pandora's Box (all the extras in the game) But opened about 80% of it. But all in all a good...

    Sony KP-51WS500 and 720p

    From everything I have read, it seems like the 51WS500 down converts any 720p signal to 480p. Same goes for any 540p, it's down converted as well. Another option is Toshibas 51H82 or 51HDX82. They support 720 as well, except they up convert it to 1080i. As well the take any 480i/p signal and...

    Screwed again, Xbox Live Major gripe. 'Rant'

    Josh -Why is it so "ridiculous" for Microsoft to require a valid form of payment for a pay service? It is ridiculous because I have already payed for the service. If in a years time I choose to pay again, that is my decision, and should not have to be dealt with yet. Hell, even MS doesn't...

    X-Box Live Requires Credit Card, etc.?

    Romier S I am just glad they didn't ask for something obscure like a Spotted barn owl with one eye and a bad limp. ;) Again something that should not be REQUIRED to play Xbox online.

    Screwed again, Xbox Live Major gripe. 'Rant'

    JamesH - Not sure where your from, but here I have seen nothing but rejection on the credit card front. My Girlfriend/ Now wife has applied for Visa and mastercard multiple time, with nothing but rejection letters. If you are a student, I know they just trow the cards at you. But as a blue...

    Screwed again, Xbox Live Major gripe. 'Rant'

    Joey, Didn't follow the whole live pre release hype, I just got my xbox in January, so I was unaware that CC was a requirement. Never hooked the DC up online either, didn't see much reason back then, I was mostly into the PC online games at the time. I understand it was stated on the box...

    X-Box Live Requires Credit Card, etc.?

    Hey Brae, Kinda funny, I just picked up live today and have the same issue, started a gripe thread in the videogames section. I unfortunately was oblivious to the fact that a credit card was required. sure it says it on the box, but come on, I thought I met all the requirements. Xbox, check...

    Screwed again, Xbox Live Major gripe. 'Rant'

    I guess my big issue, is I should not need a credit card to play online. I have spent my $70cnd, bought my year subscription, paid for my xbox, and whatever games I choose to play online, why do you need the security of a credit card? I know they want it for age verification as well, but why? So...

    Screwed again, Xbox Live Major gripe. 'Rant'

    So today I go out an pick up my long awaited Xbox Live starter kit happy as can be. Get it home, crack open the package and look at the handy connection guide, get ready to hook things up and then find the grief inducing note 'Major Credit Card Required". How can this be I think, I just...

    LOZ: The Wind Waker: Most Anticipated Video Game Of All Time

    Maybe people are still bitching about Cell-Shading, but hey, Zelda is Zelda, and the fans will buy it no matter how it looks. Hell they could release Final Fantasy 12 and all the charecters could be stick figure, and I would still pick it up, maybe the same holds true for Zelda. Personnaly I...

    Subwoofer in a car = mathematically useless?

    QUOTE]My only thought has been - what does the vibration do to the brains of the guys driving those cars? I wish I could think of a response to this, but mine turned to jello due to my Van stereo a long time ago. ;) KC

    Do I really have to wait until June for The Two Towers!?!?

    Impatient as I am, I will end up with both versions again. No biggie though, I already have 6 different copies of Star Wars Trilogy, why should the best fantasy trilogy of all time be any different. Sigh... my poor wallet....

    What do you know about the Toshiba HDX flicker problem?

    From all the reading I am doing there is definately a flicker problem ongoing on the Toshiba HDX line, this is why my considerations are now for the H line,looks just as good, but lacks the DVI and the anti glare, not a biggie if it can spare you a service call. You may want to check out...

    Toshiba 57H82 price quote too much????

    I know that Futureshop will beat any advertised price online, or printer by 5%. Don't know if they will match a American seller though.

    I too have all 3. Picked up a PS2, and GC on release, but held back on the Xbox, personally I found there to be a lot of lackluster games the first year. Sports and racing titles just don't cut it for me, as I am by no means a fan of either. But Splinter Cell sold me. Good thing they were...

    Alayn, Just a quick note on the Tosh, if you look to Futureshop, the 50HDX and the 51WS500 are the same price (actually sony is $20 cheaper for the next week) I too am leaning towards the Sony, but am also looking for info on the Tosh. The only difference I hve noticed with the 50HDX is...
