    Final Fantasy XV

    After a name change and 10 years in development, FFXV came out yesterday. Reviews have been pretty good, with the same pros and cons being called out regularly but with different emphasis depending on the reviewer. I picked it up but only got about 2 hours into it. It's VERY different from...

    E3 2016

    So now that the announcements have come out and the first day is done, what are people's thoughts? I think Microsoft is in one of their off years. They didn't really have any new games for 2016 to show and they announced the next Xbox system followed by the next next Xbox system. The jokes...

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

    MGSV releases next week on September 1st. I had been holding off a preorder until seeing how the reviews panned out, and it looks stellar. http://www.gamerankings.com/ps4/718564-metal-gear-solid-v-the-phantom-pain/index.html Currently at 95% on GameRankings and Metacritic. A lot of solid...

    PlayStation 3 YLoD experiences/advice

    My PS3 just died this past week after nearly 6 years of use. I'm very happy with what I got for my money. I knew this day would come and (unfortunately) did not prepare for it by backing up my PS1/2 saves that were on the HDD or move my PS3 saves onto the PS+ cloud. Anyone have any experience...

    Wii U Demo Stations in stores (Target, Best Buy, GameStop)

    I got to play a Wii U Demo at Best Buy today and it was pretty neat. The controller is a little too big for my tastes (I can only have my index fingers on the shoulder OR trigger button, but using my middle on the trigger feels awkward) but it pretty much worked as advertised. The only...

    Cablevision/Optimum Box issue with LG TV and HDMI - no signal

    I just bought an LG 47LW5300 LED TV a couple weeks ago and was going to check out the tennis matches in 3D but my box (Scientific Atlanta Explorer 8300 HD) and my TV are not communicating so no signal is going through. I used this box on a previous LCD TV with HDMI and it worked. I called...

    The Right TV for 3D Gaming

    I'm sort of in the market for a 3DTV. I'm not looking for the absolutely best TV or the biggest TV, but something that will be more than good enough for the price and size. My current TV is a 42" LCD and wasn't the top of the line when I bought it but I've been more than happy with it. I'm...

    PlayStation Move

    So I went out yesterday and got the $99.99 PS Move that comes with the PSEye, one controller, the demo disc, and Sports Champions. My initial impression was that the controller is bigger/longer than I expected and the white orb is a lot less interesting than I thought. It's just a rubber...

    Heavy Rain - PS3

    I picked this up last Tuesday from GameStop (note to self: don't preorder games from GS if there is a preorder bonus since you might not actually get the bonus) and finished it last night. The graphics are incredible, the animations are mostly great, the voice work is good (not perfect), and...

    Media Center issue - blank screen

    I have a Windows XP Pro Media Center 2004 HP computer. I haven't had any problems with MC for a long time, then all of a sudden around tuesday/wednesday this past week it stops working. I can open the program, watch videos, listen to music, but I can't watch TV. When I click on "My TV" it opens...

    Metal Gear Solid 4 - Anyone else excited?

    OK, now that GTA4 is out, up next for the major release hype is MGS4. Is anyone excited about this besides me? I don't have a PS3 right now, but I am hoping to get my stimulus check from the IRS in time so that I can go out and buy a PS3 with MGS4 as soon as it comes out. I've been following the...

    Looking for Free Screensaver Maker

    I'm looking for a free screensaver maker. All I need it to do is take 12 pictures, play them sequentially with 1 second between each picture, and then repeat forever. I've looked around and everything either doesn't work at all or has an annoying watermark. Any suggestions?

    Metroid Prime 3

    So MP3 comes out this coming Tuesday. I'm really looking forward to it. Nintendo released a Metroid Preview Channel on the Wii (in the Shop under WiiWare) and just about every website has their last-minute preview stuff going up. I saw a scan from the new issue of Nintendo Power where they gave...

    Help: Buttons on Broken InFocus LP620

    I have a broken InFocus LP620 (my fraternity was given it by the school; one of the brothers worked for EdTech and they let him take it when it broke). The problem is that the buttons don't work on it, so we can't change any settings. Ideally we'd like to use a universal remote. Any ideas...

    Sony Press Conference Announcements

    Just finished watching the Pre-E3 Press Conference. I don't have a full list or anything, but here's what's really important: Controller - looks like PSOne/PS2, except it has "6 degrees of motion" (read: ripped off the idea for physical movement from Nintendo) Release - Nov. 17 in N...

    *** Official BATMAN BEGINS Review Thread

    Just got back from our theater's employee screening of Batman Begins. Quick review: GO SEE IT. Long review: GO SEE IT NOW. But seriously, this film was amazing. If you completely ignore the campy TV show, the previous bright-colored movies, and the idea that Batman is just for kids...

    Metal Gear Solid 3

    With 8 days left until the release of this soon-to-be classic, is anyone else looking forward to it besides me? I've got a list of nearly a dozen games across 4 platforms coming out this month that I want, but mainly due to financial constraints (and the impending workload college is sure to...

    Broken Cell Phone Antenna....Replacement?

    My cell phone antenna has broken off and I need a replacement. It's one of the stubby ones, not the extending ones. Any ideas? It's a LG VX3100L.

    Digital Camera Beeps Taking Pics...Help?

    My digital camera, seen here (http://www.polaroid-digital.com/cata...emname=pdc3030) likes to make a beep noise whenever it takes a picture or I press a button in the menu. This is really annoying. Any way to stop it?

    Console Games On My Monitor

    I want to find a way to play console videogames on my monitor. The only solutions I've found involve buying something from Lik-sang.com or E-bay. Is there any place I can find a reasonably priced composite/s-video-to-VGA (note: my monitor is a flat-screen LCD 19") adapter? Worst case...

    WinXP died from Error-check,,,,need help

    Last night, I ran the defrag program twice and then restarted so I could run the error-checking program in WinXP. At some point in the middle of the night, the program decided to freeze up, so I rebooted it and now my computer won't start up. It gets to the screen where I can press F1 for Setup...

    GameCube/PS2/X-Box Connection to a Monitor Question

    I'm going off to college and I fear I'm going to be stuck with my roommate's crappy 13" TV/VCR combo. How can I connect my GameCube/PS2/X-Box to my 19" flat-screen LCD monitor so I can play on that instead of his crappy piece? Is there a cable I can get or at least an adapter? I have the proper...

    Mega Man Anniversary Collection: MUST BUY!!!

    I got this last night, and WOW! This is freakin' awesome! 8 games for $30, and most of them are amazing! When I was little, my cousin had all the MegaMan games, so I would go to his house and play them. Now that I actually know what I'm doing, these games are great! Still a bit of a...

    Warner Bros. Adding Royalties to Bad Games Using Their Licenses

    http://www.gamespot.com/news/2004/05...s_6099292.html Basically, WB is charging more for their licenses after-the-fact if the games made from them suck because it's destroying the brand. I definitely think this is a good idea. It'll keep bad games from being made, or at least punish those...

    Need help with TV for video export...

    I have my computer set up so that I can export video (either my desktop or a specific video) onto a videotape through my VCR. The problem is, the video is black and white and I can't get in color. The only export slot I have is an s-video port, which has an s-to-composite adapter that came with...

    Just got a NEW PC, what demos/games should I get?

    I'm looking for good games to show off my new setup. I have demos for UT2K4, Tron 2.0 (I also ordered this for $20 from EBGames), and I'm downloading Kill.switch and Max Payne 2 demos at the moment. What other games/demos should I get or look into? I don't have enough free time for...

    Anyone else having a FF:CC party?

    I want to get a cell phone basically for texting purposes and being able to contact people/be contacted wherever I am. I want to get a good enough phone (I don't care about the newest this or that; a small enough one with a low price will do). I'm looking to find unlimited texting, unlimited...

    Beyond Good & Evil...Wow!

    I got BG&E from EBGames.com for $22 shipped. What a steal! The game is done entirely letterboxed (not anamorphic, IIRC, but you could zoom/stretch it) and the graphics are amazing. Little touches in the environments let you know that the entire game world was fully realized from the...
