    Re-selling used CDs: More money back from local shops, or eBay?

    Well, the title pretty much says it all, but I'll elaborate anyway: :) I'm a sucker for remastered and expanded albums, so I'm always buying new releases of albums I already own, but at the same time, I very rarely even go into used shops, much less to sell something back or to buy a used CD...

    Fair price to pay for used Saturn and 3DO systems?

    Well, I've got a guy I work with who is wanting to sell me his used Saturn and 3DO systems (just about the only major systems I don't have). I might be interested if the prices are right. What would be considered fair prices to pay for used complete systems? I've checked Ebay, and it looks...

    Best Importer: Lik-Sang or NCSX? (for GBA:SP)

    Well, I want the black GBA:SP (not available in the U.S. at launch), and I want it ASAP. So both www.ncsx.com and www.lik-sang.com have got pre-orders up for them for $130. I've never imported any video game item (hard or software) before, so I have no idea about which of these companies is...

    I read threads backwards.

    I do. Maybe I'm the only one who does this, but if a thread has more than five or ten replies, I'll start from the most recent reply and work my way backwards from there. I do this with magazines, too. I have no idea why, but its something I've always done. Are there other backwards readers...

    "No Black Bars" sticker on new Sound of Music disc

    Well, the subject says it all. Saw the new, single-disc pan & scan release of The Sound of Music yesterday, and, adorning the front of the packaging, is a sticker which reads "Formatted to Fit Your TV / No Black Bars". Couldn't help but roll my eyes as soon as I saw it. What do you guys think?

    Sony five-disc changer with progressive and SACD?

    Well, I was getting all geared up for Sony's new progressive-scan five disc changer, the DVP-NC655P/S, and then I found out about the 755, which is the single-disc progressive scan player that also does SACD (which the changer doesn't do). But I like changers (current player is the old-school...

    Any interest in the Fox Demo Disc #1 DVD?

    Some of you might remember that Fox and Best Buy teamed up last Thanksgiving to give away a freebie called "Fox Demo Disc #1"--which contained various demos of different movies--about thirty different scenes, IIRC, and there were other various tidbits of DVD stuff on the disc, like a glossary...

    Help! I need a "talking to a brick wall" smiley, quick!

    Hey guys, I'm in a semi-argument with an Xbox fanboy in another forum, and I'm needing one of those "talking to a brick wall" smilies. I've been trying to find it on several different smilie pages, and have had no luck anywhere. I know its out there--I saw it a few months ago. (I've found a...

    The Sandlot

    I picked up Fox's new disc The Sandlot this evening, and thought I would give you guys a quick review--I know this movie has some big fans here. I have a modest home theater, with a 32" Sony calibrated to Video Essentials, and am usually not too picky when it comes to the fine details of...

    What's the deal with Dave and Oprah?

    I've been mildly amused by Dave's campaign to get on Oprah's show over the past couple of weeks, but I don't know what puzzles me more about it: Does Dave really want to be on her show? or Why isn't Oprah jumping on this (not that she should be jumping on anything) ;) ? I've been watching...

    Any Bob Dylan remasters coming anytime soon?

    I'm a fledgling Bob Dylan fan, only owning "The Essential Bob Dylan" 2-CD set which was released last year. Well, enough of that. Need more Dylan. So on Friday (payday, natch), I'm planning to pick up some more Dylan albums: Blonde on Blonde, Highway 61 Revisited, Blood on the Tracks...

    Advice needed on doing a free DVD giveaway

    NBA Live 2002 for PS2: Worth keeping?

    Anyone else have (or rented) this game? I just recieved it in the mail from the TRU/Amazon "Buy two, get one free" offer and don't know what to do with it. I've only read one review of it so far, on IGN, and they gave it a seven-something out of a ten, which wasn't very promising. Haven't...
