  1. I only really raised this thread from the dead just to remind myself of Yahtzee mistaking one game at the Sony Press Conference for another.

     


  2. I put that CRT Monitor back into it's original box, along with it's original Windows XP PC which is slow, and speakers that were sounding more like FM Radio. It's original keyboard was destroyed years ago after I smashed it over my Windows XP PC not properly turning on. I don't remember what happened to the original mouse.

    As long as its not a fire hazard unplugged it will be one of the oldest electronics I will eventually find out how to recycle.


  3. Does this have any effect on say digital distribution? I don't think I've ever seen a tax from buying games, DLC, etcetera from Sony or Microsoft.

    ….

    Also I still find myself against Sales Tax. And Jeff Bezos evaded paying taxes.


  4. I don't think my PC has a graphics card. From what I could tell my CRT Monitor wouldn't turn on as the small green light wouldn't turn on and I was hearing a ticking sound whenever I tried to turn it back on after turning it off.

    Also I got the new wire today and it works.

    My only problem was with my HDTV as I had to change it from 16:9 to Screen Fit.

  5. I really should've read the back of the thing before I bought it as it says HD to VGA. I've bought from this nearby shop before. And usually I would be told no refunds. I felt like I was very specific in that I needed to hook up my PC up to an HDTV. I guess I'll be there tomorow trying to explain they sold me the wrong part.

    *Edit 1*

    I got a refund after them trying to convince me that HD to VGA is the same as VGA to HD. They had to test it before they refunded me and it worked. I didn't see the test as it was in the back. So this all feels very weird because it somehow works for them, but not for me. And if it didn't work for them I wouldn't have gotten refunded.

    *Edit 2*

    I think I found what I was looking for on amazon.com from a 3rd party seller. A 6 foot cable VGA to HDMI Adapter with audio from Foinnex. Plus 2 Year Protection.

    ....

    I would've copy & pasted the URL, but the Steam Machine browser doesn't have that ability.

  6. In advance sorry for any mispellings.

    My CRT Monitor died yesterday. I wanted to get it repaired. But the nearest place to my home doesn't repair CRT Monitors. I bought wires that I thought would connect my PC to that HDTV I bought. But they don't want to work together.

    Currently I'm connecting to the internet via that Steam Machine I bought.

    I need access to my Real PC because that's where my writings, phone, etc are.

    I might have to wait till next month as I'm short on cash. But I think my only options right now are to either pay $95 (an hour) to probably be told that my PC will only connect to a CRT Monitor. Or find a "new" CRT Monitor.


  7. I don't think that's the original Voice Acting as they have changed how the stories were in the original.

    They also changed Claire Redfield's original outfit. I'm going miss her Black Boxer Briefs under Red Daisy Dukes Shorts outfit she had.

    And I don't like the whole flashlight & boarding up windows mechanics.

  8. I ended up buying a Nintendo Switch today because this might be the last good game Solid Snake shows up in until the next Super Smash Bros.

    *Edit*

    I'm confused on why Nintdendo would expect its customers to buy a Lan Adapter, only buy Official Nintendo Products, then not make an Official Nintendo Switch Lan Adapter.

    In other news I barely regret not buying Skyrim for Nintendo Switch.


  9. I can try to take this as their version of Super Smash Bros, but that ending just makes me think of this.

    I'm going to be the best damn snowman builder there ever was, you heard it hear first!

    But to build a snowman you must think like a snowman.

    I was tempted to buy a steam controller at one point, but it didn't look comfortable to use. Why was it bad for you? Can those touch pad things emulate mouse movements decently?

    The controller is comfortable to hold. But the right touch pad makes it hard to aim. It really should've been a control stick.

    The only modern games it'll play will most likely only be games that are currently playable on linux via steam.

    So it could basically be a Steam Machine with a better controller?

    Not saying that would be enough for me to buy an Atari VCS, but the Steam Controller is the worst controller I've ever used.

    Also I would really need to see proof that Atari VCS could run modern games or even games that came out for PS3 & Xbox 360.

  13. Deadpool 2 is way better than the previous one. Like good enough that I don't want to say anything bad about it.

    Spoiler

    Basically past the ending Deadpool makes the same jokes that he made in his first Deadpool movie.

    For a moment I thought Bishop was going to show up.

    Beast quietly closing the door was funny.

    Almost everyone who didn't show up more than once in the trailer died, but that probably doesn't matter.

    Also

    Cable wasn't part of The Reavers. But part of me now wants to falsely predict that Hope will join The Starjammers. Because Thanos reference.
