    Who else is getting the Droid X?

    Some sage advice for those who haven't to make things smoother: -Use an alternate UI. I use ADW launcher and it's more lightweight and smoother than the stock motoblur UI. -Appkiller is key. You can tag apps that can be killed without consequence and then every time you touch the widget on...

    I miss 20 years ago when every mall had an arcade place

    There's a sweet arcade here in Lansing, MI called Pinball Pete's that's still going strong after all these years. Switched from a shopping center to directly on MSU campus, and while I think it lost some luster when it moved, it's still a sweet arcade. Good mix of old school and newer machines...

    Resident Evil 5 DEMO!!! Xbox360

    You can still download the demo and put it on to a data disc. I wont go into specifics because it's kind of a gray-area thing, but it can be done.

    Post your retro hardware.

    Man did I hate those older Compaq towers with the daughterboard schema. I've still got one of those around here somewhere... Also have a PII Compaq slim client shoved in a closet as well.

    Dead Space out today

    Got this today for the 360. Awesome so far, combat is really engaging and the graphics are, while spotty here and there, very good. It's definitely worth picking up right now.

    Fallout3/Dead Space/Farcry2 which platform?

    I'll be grabbing all 3 on the 360. Really, if I can play it on the Xbox 360 anymore, I do, and if it only comes out on the PC, then that's where I play it. Just a matter of where most of my friends are playing their games.

    Dead Space anyone?

    Yeah, finished watching them today. They were cool, but it'll be awesome if they work some of those characters into the storyline of the game.

    Dead Space anyone?

    Dead Space indeed. I can't wait for this to come out. If anyone's wondering how boss this game's gonna be, check out the vids at IGN's page.

    More excited for Fallout 3 or Fable 2?

    Fallout 3. I played the crap out of Oblivion, and this looks to be way more robust. I'm still getting Fable 2, but I'm still more giddy for Far Cry 2 and Fallout 3.

    Alone in the Dark

    I picked this game up for the 360 today, so YMMV on some things... I honestly really like the game. While I'll admit that the game has issues, most of which being technical, it's still very good. The pacing and variation is enough to keep your interest, and while the combat isn't the best (at...

    Putting CFW on your PSP Slim - Having trouble figuring it out? Look inside for info

    I've had this for a week now and it's pretty decent. The biggest gripe I have with it is that no matter what you do, you can't replace the emulators in the folders with newer versions. I've tried many different ways of doing so, and they all result in an error. However, most of the programs are...

    Anyone "forced" to buy the Orange box for the Xbox 360?

    I'm picking it up on 360. I've played through HL2 so many times that I might as well get achievement points this time through. Not to mention I want to play my buds in some TF2 over Live.

    Max Payne: Payne and Redemption Teaser

    Dissapointed that it's not exactly announcing a new game, but great news that a movie is coming out. I've always loved the tragic story of Max Payne.

    Oblivion Revisited

    Personally, I like Oblivion because it's very fulfilling to play. So I'm having a very ADD day and I can't stick to one story... Thats fine, I'll just go do some dungeon looting or random questing, Then, if I'm in the mood for something long, I can stick with some longer, more rewarding...

    How do yall like Resident Evil 4 for PC?

    The game itself is great. The port? Not so much. I ended up breaking down and getting a wired 360 controller, and it's been much smoother sailing. Controlling this game with the keyboard is such a mistake.

    You should be fine, but it might be good to call just in case. - This game is friggen awesome! I've heard a lot of complaints around the net that it's just Forza with a new coat of paint, but I have to disagree. Quite a few of the changes force you to accomplish as much as you can, which is...

    Give them a call and ask them to hold it a little longer. They'll usually do it for you.

    Colin McRae: DIRT Demo on Xbox Live

    The demo was pretty tight. For not being a sim, the physics were good and the handling is pretty good as well. I'll have to check out the full thing.

    Best Current CD/DVD Burning Software?

    I use DeepBurner for backing up data and burning music CDs. Not the most option-heavy burning program, but it is free.

    Blacksite Area 51 Demo

    I thought it was really good. Not exactly the absolute best use of the UE3, but I'll pick it up. Co-op sounds tight!

    Oblivion: The Return to My Computer

    I've put a lot of time into Oblivion on guilds and quests alone, but I had to push myself to finish up the main quest. Closing gates just sucked and wasn't as much fun as some of the tasks you had to do on the side. The main quest for Shivering Isles is much, much better and is a heck of a lot...

    I left it on. It really doesn't bother me too much, and I'd rather deal with it to keep things secure.

    Halo 2 for Vista.....

    The huge push is the Live for Windows platform, which is mainly a Vista thing. This is the same thing Shadowrun is going into, since the 360 version will launch at the same time as the PC version.

    Any Vista Business users???

    I'm using it for home use right now, since it's what my university gives the tech students. Haven't seen anything critical missing yet.

    I just lost respect for Tuniq....

    I just installed a Tuniq in my new build today, and I was surprised how well the base looked. You could tell it was machined, but it was pretty smooth.

    Metal Gear Solid 4 for Xbox 360 - is this FOR REAL(?)

    Werd. I don't doubt that it's coming to the 360 from what Kojima's been saying, but I doubt that it's going to be here first. I'm expecting a revised version, ala Substance.

    Time for review before I pull the trigger...

    Should've mentioned that the hard drive for this system is coming out of my current build (300gb Maxtor). The external is something I've been putting off for way too long. As far as the price cuts, I've been waiting an eternity and a half for this upgrade, and I haven't touched Shivering...
