    Gaia Industries

    The developer for WC Arena only has one other XBLA game under it's belt, "Street Trace N.Y.C.". I could only find one review for it, and it gave it a 5/10. Has anyone else played it that can comment on it's quality?

    Superman II: The Richard Donner Cut

    So I bought this yesterday and I must say it's a much better film than the original Superman II. It has a sort of "unpolished" feel thanks to some of the footage being from a screen test (still an excellent scene), and continuity errors thanks to frequent cutting, but it's still awesome. Most...

    Origin Hated Petrarca?

    I was reading the Blair thread and LOAF said something about "sour grapes" between Origin and Petrarca. I had never heard of this before. I knew he refused to do the voice over for Secret Ops, but was this the cause of the bad relations, or were the bad relations why he wouldn't do it...

    StarLancer #1 Fastest Moving Game On Windows Marketplace

    StarLancer #1 Fastest Moving Product On Windows Marketplace I don't know if this has been brought up yet, but I stumbled upon the Windows Marketplace website today and StarLancer is the #1 fastest moving downloaded product on the marketplace. I just thought it was neat that people are still...

    What is that thing called? (Computer Hardware Question)

    I just got a new DVD Rom drive and installed it in my computer. However I had to remove the little side clicky things that keep it locked in the computer from my old CD Rom drive to get it to stay. Anyone know what those little clicky things are called? I would like to purchase another pair...

    Internet Explorer 7 (Beta 3)

    Just downloaded it. I like the new skins, icons, and tabs. I still can't get used to the position of the address bar or the small size of the back/forward buttons though. Anyone else here give it a try yet?

    My Living Room Isn't Big Enough For The Both Of 'Em (HDTV Discussion)

    Well I've decided to make the jump to HDTV. So far I have $1,000 in the can and a Target rain check for a Philips 32 Inch LCD HDTV(Monitor). Now seeing as no Target store in my area seems to have this TV in stock and it's out on the online store as well, I started searching around, and found a...

    Criminals Get Their Comeuppance

    Just an interesting little story I thought I would share with you all. In my neighborhood a couple of blocks down three armed men entered an elderly couple's home last week, intending to rob him. I don't know the details, but they said the homeowner (of around age 70) ended up shooting two...

    Shadow of the Colossus

    So after seeing all the great reviews for this game and seeing a little bit of my friend playing it, I decided to use my Target gift card and purchase it today. I killed three Colossi, then quit, angry that I spent my money on it. Is this a natural first time response to playing the game? If...

    It's that time of year again.

    Well... it's been about a year since my computer broke down last year and I got to run through the WC series again... and guess what, it did it again! So of course, I've been diligently playing through my collection. Just having beaten Prophecy not but a few hours ago, I started thinking... in...

    The Matrix Revolutions

    So... I saw it today... and I was quite prepared to label it on par with the original as I found the intense (more star wars-ish) "real world" action quite dilectable. I also thought that the Neo/Smith fight at the end was AWESOME (until they were in the mud, I liked the feel of the rainy...

    Is anyone else tired of: Cel Animation?

    Now I know what some of you are thinking. I went through the same thing with the whole Zelda thing. First I was in the "right" camp of Cel haters, until a couple of months passed, and everyone turned on me due to a few screenshots. Now I played The Wind Waker and love it. But I still prefer...

    Something really cool (but hard to believe)

    I recently saw a commercial for something awesome... if it works. It's a phone jack that splits one line into three so you can supposedly go online, use the phone, and fax off of the same line for the price of one. Does anyone know if this is some sort of rip off. It seems like it would be...

    PNR Films

    So, I decided to check out the PNR website today just 'cause I haven't seen it in awhile and wanted to be reminded that it still exists (still not quite sure about that). But while reading all of the descriptions of projects, I found myself thinking of something that I'm almost afraid to say...

    T3 (You knew it was comin')

    So has anyone seen it yet? I know there was a sneak preview today at 8:00, but unfortunately I wasn't among the select few to participate. I'll be seeing it on Thursday. So for those who have seen it, what did you think? I really like the Terminator films and am looking forward to this being...

    Okay I know I've asked this before but I can't remember. Whatever happened to the WC Invasion mod for Star Trek Armada? Can I still download it somewhere?

    Advantages to the "real world" (A Matrix thing)

    So, there seem to be quite a few Matrix fans here, and something has been going through my mind about the fight to shut off the matrix. What's the motivation. It's been awhile since I saw the first one (only once in a theater) and if, once you're free from the matrix, do you live longer or...

    Privateer 2 in Windows?

    Has anyone gotten this to work, or is anyone working on a program to get this to work? I ask just because it would be great to play this game that really intrigued me and then decided not to save in DOS mode. And because I saw the announcement about the original Privateer.

    Favorite GBA Games

    Hey there, just wondering if anybody out there has actually found a good video game for the GBA that they really enjoy. I have five or six games now and the only one that I can say really entertained me and never let me down was A Link to the Past. Besides that, my selection sort of sucks.
