I'll take a look when I'm at a console that can handle video, but that sounds way outside my experience.

If you've stumped these forums, you ain't finding out without tracking down old school 3DO code monkeys.

Let this bullshit parade end. I'm homeless tomorrow. I've been staying with my brother, who got all passive-aggressive and decided I had to leave. Tomorrow he gets a letter that was long at one point but now reads: "I don't know what crawled up your ass and turned into a dick and I stopped caring. I...

My buddy Mach asked me why I wouldn't mod consoles for people. I told him "I can get $50, enough to keep a store going for a day, and never see that person again. Or I could insult them and perhaps goad them into a beating. Plus I don't like the labor involved with modding consoles."

Oh yes, it's dirt cheap at these places. Expensive is $50 a day, and I've seen places for $6. Of course we're talking the basic 10x10 unit before chaining

Bland Opening

Every time I think I'm out, they pull me back in! Okay, secret time. You might one day have a shop of your own. To save money, you might start off at a trade show, or flea market. Here's the thing; you don't own a shop. You run a table. Nobody who owns a store with real walls considers you to be on ...

Gamedude offered me a management position on the spot around late 2001. But everybody there seemed to hate life and I didn't want to get into that shit. Took a job with Wherehouse Music's experimental Gamespace which turned out to be a much shorter career, but at least it was probably a happier one....

I generally make sure my chip is top of the line. It's one of the cheaper items to max on and you're generally okay for years with that, even allowing a slightly lesser graphics card in on the configuration. As for current graphics cards... god, I have no idea.

I've seen a bit more accuracy out of both, honestly. It really depends on the game. Not much on the Wii has approached the sheer precision of Sports Champions' Table Tennis. Then again, Sports Champions' sword fighting is a slow affair that doesn't work as well as those Wii titles that require actua...

Any time I try to use something for the DS aside from My Japanese Coach, it feels like I'm just desperate to justify the purchase price. Between arcade collections, legitimately fun Sony titles, and some ambitious third party stuff, my PSP gets a ton more use on the road.
