    Retro arcade display question

    I debated putting this here or in displays, and picked here. I figure you guys are my best shot at getting an answer to this, which has been nagging me. So I recently was out with family, and we stopped at one of these retro arcade places. Lots of vintage stand up arcade machines and...

    ergochair 2.

    Witth the new spate of "gaming chairs" and various Chinese imports tyring to muscle into the herman miller, steel case, etc market segment, I started stalking things that looked promising. My 25 year old chair finally became unrepairable, so I had to get something. I'm also 6'7" ish and even...

    What would make interesting VR games?

    Honestly most of the stuff I'm seeing looks a bit boring. Lots of kill the waves of monsters while standing in place kind of things. Dropping $700 on a VR rig to play things that look like they are meh vell phone games doesn't strike me as a good plan. So what's out there that's really...

    Need some help for the holidays from google play store veterans.

    OK, I'll try to keep it short. Getting my young kid a replacement for his existing tablet. Going form a nabi 2 to a nabi dream whatever. As of a few firmware revisions ago play was on the old one, and is on the new one natively. I was trying to download the handful of paid apps for the new...

    X-Com enemy unknown $19.99

    Gamefly has x-com enemy unknown for sale for $24.99, and the 20% off PC games coupon code "1GFT1112" worked for me just now to bring it down to $19.99. I haven't seen it that cheap yet so figured I would share. Code is apparently dead.

    Is there anyway to make my Samsung Captivate not suck?

    I have had an iphone 3gs for a while now (my own). Work just got me a samsung captivate and stuck me with the job of being designated hitter for android mobile support. (For anyone interested, all the bitches you see in captivate reviews about the GPS are justified. It's slow, sloppy, and...

    Some hot deals on crumpler camera bags.

    These are top notch bags that are different than most camera bags. I have a 4 million dollar home and 7 million dollar home, and like them a lot. They are hard to find discounted by much. The browm/green color stays pretty presentable if you find yourself dragging your gear through dusty dirty...

    Old games you would like to see remade.

    Well, remade, or revisited, but for technology reasons rather than just because you want a sequel. Things you really feel were good then, but would be even better with today's eye candy, physics, etc. The top title I keep wishing would have another entry in the series is Syndicate. That game...

    Looks like I was sent a pirated game from gogamer...

    I've ordered a lot of things from gogamer, and while some of them have been gray areas (imports, bundled disks, etc). This time I got an outright pirated copy. Bought freedom force for like $7 on 48 hour madness for a friend. Finally get around to giving it to them, they open it up while I'm...

    Doom3, help my flashlight broke.

    For some reason, all of a sudden my flashlight no longer illuminates anything. This happened in the middle of playing this evening, and I'd rather not go back to my last autosave. Using 61.77 detonators. Might upgrade to try fixing it, but it was working just fine for the first 3 hours of...

    D3 and lan parties

    I haven't seen this mentioned in any reviews or peoples' comments so I figured I'd ask here. Is the copy protection and network code for doom3 set up so that you can install off of one or two copies at a lan party and have people play together without cd-key issues? I just want to know...

    anyone else experiencing this odd far cry behavior?

    Far cry is generally behaving for me except it keeps doing one VERY annoying thing. Namely every now and then, one of the mercenaries will notice me, appear to be going to get help, running away, or finding cover. Something that results in a character animation that involves the gun...
