    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    I doubt it'll pass through the house or get signed by Trump. But it is surprising that it passed through the senate. We could get surprised again.

    December 14th was coming. (That was just the vote to destroy Net Neutrality)
    Then April 23rd was coming. (But it wasn't officially the death of Net Neutrality.)
    Now June 11th is coming. (I'm guessing this news is happening now as the CRA most likely failed.)
     
    I might just be paranoid. But I'm really expecting a lot of websites to be gone before the 2020 election. Or even before this November.

    Good news! Venom doesn't look like some cosplayer.
     
    Still looks rated PG-13.

    The internet services in your area sound like the biggest cash grab of all. There's no reason for internet data caps like that with modern networks imo. Especially considering all websites are the ones actually paying for data transfer limits to the data centers/ hosting services they're signed up with. Data caps sounds like double dipping for extra profits just because they can because there's either no competition or their network literally sucks so much ass that they have severe limitations that should have been resolved years ago. Time Warner / spectrum is a shit company in this area but at least they put some profits over the years into updating their network. Their basic plans now are $50-60 a month with 100 mbps minimum and no data cap.
    I don't know what may or may not happen with no net neutrality anymore but for me I'd rather keep my plan the way it is now which is unlimited everything. If they rolled out changes to make a game plan, streaming, plan, etc. I'd be pissed. I'd rather see everywhere in the US have unlimited plans.
    I am a bit concerned about privacy with net neutrality going away. I have a feeling that all our private information will become an entire economy like health insurance. Facebook and Google have been profiting off our data for years with targeted ads based off our info, now I worry that the ISPs and network backbone providers will start harvesting all our internet usage data and sell it off to any random company with enough money. They could also target high usage websites like Netflix and Amazon prime and throttle their connections unless they pay more money. And then they could double dip that by making us pay for streaming packages with our internet to. It all seems shady as hell to me. Once all this potentially becomes an economy of its own our government will never roll new laws into place to protect our privacy because it'll affect jobs or the entire country's economy as a whole or some bull crap like that.
    I bought a VPN service a couple weeks ago. At least I can do things privately now if I want. Its also fun to turn my VPN on, switch over to a Canada or Britain IP and then Google search news. Its cool to actually see news from Google thinking I'm living in a different country. The ads from websites completely change to since they're not targeted at me anymore either. EU has completely different laws than the US for privacy. Browsing from any EU/ Britain/ Canada ip from my VPN procs most websites into popping up disclaimers and acceptance info for cookies and privacy policies. Browse anything from the US and you get none of that. It really makes me feel like there is no privacy online at all anymore.

    Otherwise known as The Death Of Net Neutrality. So before ISPs destroy us all for the sake of liking us only as consumers here's what I did before the end.
    Gaming
    As a sign of me being overly paranoid (And GWG not giving me these games sooner) I bought Dark Souls II, TES IV Oblivion (Again), TES V Skyrim (Again), Saints Row (Again), Saints Row 2 (Again), Fallout 3 (Again), & Fallout NV (Again).
    Yeah the only game I didn't buy again was Dark Souls II. Because I didn't really get into Dark Souls after years of not just looking up how to beat the first boss. I still expect this to be the hardest Dark Souls I'll ever play even if I don't have to worry about being invaded. TES IV Oblivion was about $5 when I bought it on Xbox 360. My PS3 copy is preowned & stopped working. TES V Skyrim is what caused my PS3 to break due to my own insanity. Thus making me prefer digital distribution even more. Also I'm still sick of buying Skyrim & hope not to do so again until the 2020s. Saints Row 1&2 I already owned for Xbox 360 (2 also being the one I own multiple times also on PS3 & Steam). Both were under $5 each. Not sure why MS doesn't make at least the first Saints Row run on Xbox One as it has remained exclusive to them. Fallout 3 & NV I both owned & sold for the PS3 due to moral issues. But this time around I'm playing as immoral characters so not as big of a problem this time around. Also they were about $5 each. My Fiction & HTML5 Game Ideas
    I was expecting 2017 to somehow be my last chance to save myself before Ben Carson destroyed my housing assistance. And still get myself destroyed because of Ajiit Pai. However I'm once again save by procrastination. Over a decade of demotivated procrastination. My self censorship continues.
    my political views
    As Net Neutrality comes to an end I wonder if I'll have the urge to vote. As my needs for my American Dream were either overlooked or were going to be hated anyway. I think if my representatives ever represent me it'll be when I'm pass the age of 40 still dealing with the crisis my mother created for me when I was 21.

    Mad Max was one of those games I knew would someday be free on PS Plus.... I don't know if I would enjoy missing out on this as I played Crossout for free until that game decided my shotguns were a clipping issue.
    ....
    Also, yeah I'm still mad about ESO's $150 (or more) in micro-transactions a month.

    This is a great lineup. Bloodborne, Ratchet and Clank and Mighty No. 9. And in 1 year there will be no more free games released for ps3 and vita.

    It will hopefully be better than General Zod's plot from Man Of Steel.
    Gender swapped Mario? Which is basically Super Princess Peach. I'm not trying to defend what they did. If anything they already had a good plot. Then someone demanded the ability to ship characters for the sake of shipping characters.

    How disappointing can reality get when "Does Not Include Micro-Transactions" isn't a big enough selling point?
    Sure I hope they succeed, but I'm not giving them my money for something I still find generic.

    As far as I know Carnage has always been the offspring of Venom.
    I thought Life starring Ryan Reynolds ruined a Vin Diesel movie I was day dreaming about where Dominic Toretto lives his Life one spin at a time. On the other hand I wanted to believe San Andreas starring The Rock was an alternate timeline where Lex Luthor succeeded in making beachfront property.

    If I remember correctly Spider-Man's Black Suit from Secret Wars. (And might've been based on a female character with a black spider suit, but I can't confirm that to be true.) Both Spider-Man: The Animated Series & Spider-Man 3 never really wanted to delve into the whole Venom origins story so it shouldn't be a surprise that Spider-Man can be cut from that story too.
    As far as Venom's powers go it can be simply based off of Venom's obsession with Spider-Man. Like how Carnage is obsessed with the T-1000 stabbing weapons because Carnage is attached to a murderer.
    Now let me tell you how Ant-Man's origin makes zero sense without Atom from DC.
    ....
    That was just sarcasm about Ant-Man. You don't need DC's Atom in order to tell Ant-Man's story.
