Has anyone seen this on the Discovery Channel?

I've seen the first two "levels," and I have to say it's not bad.
It's a mini series about the history of video games.

Here's the web site:

You should check it out if you have the Discovery Channel.

Everything Else / Video Game Confessions
« on: September 24, 2007, 03:21:39 pm »
So what games do you play or have played that you feel bad for liking?

I will list 3 of mine:

Madden - I like football, but it's not like I buy every years edition.
Halo - I own 3 of the novels, and I find the story interesting (especially fall of reach)
Animal Crossing - Everything from the cool ambient music to humor, Animal Crossing rocks!

What games do you like that would make your fellow gamers laugh at you?

Everything Else / Favorite Video Game Quotes

What are some of your favorite video game quotes?

Mine is kind of long, and if anyone has seen it then PM me.

City of Heroes Statesman Task Force:

Dr. Aeon: Ah-ha-ha-ha! You 'Stupor-powered' fools have fallen into my brilliant trap! Allow me to explain: That portal didn't send you to a secret base, instead it sent you into the future, where my Web device has allowed Lord Recluse to conquer the world!
But don't worry, fools! I've made arrangements to have you captured by some of Arachnos's operatives here in the future. Like Regent Korol (Shows Villain), Magus Mu'Drakhan (Shows Villain), Shadow Spider(Shows Villain), And Viridian(Shows Villain),

Each has part of the code needed to open this door: (Shows Door)
And set this portal to send you back to the present: (Shows Portal)

So just sit tight and wait to be taken prisoner.

And whatever you do, don't even think about fighting them!

There's no way you could win, so don't even try it!

I can't believe I just told them how to escape like that!

Okay, just erase this recording and we'll start again.

Bane Spider Executioner: Uh, sir?

Dr. Aeon: What?

Bane Spider Executioner: Uh... You said you wanted to transmit this, uh, live...

Dr. Aeon: AAAAH! Shut it off! Shut it off!

Classic comic book villain  ;D

Anyway, post your favorite video game quotes.

Console Games / Xbox 360 Spring Update 07
« on: May 30, 2007, 07:58:36 am »
(Ok, I know I've been making a bunch of Xbox 360 threads, sorry)

I've been trying out the new MSN messenger in the update, but I can't seam to access a feature.

I've seen this in a few places online:

It's a little chat window thats supposed to opens when your IM'n.
I can't seam to get it to work.

When someone sends me a reply, it comes in like I got a normal message. So I have to go into my messages to view it. It's kind of a pain when your doing something else.

Is it an option, or what?

Console Games / Getting iTunes Video Podcasts to Xbox 360
« on: May 27, 2007, 05:59:28 am »
Ok, I need some help.

I want to watch video podcasts that I downloaded using iTunes, on my Xbox 360.

I was thinking of putting them on a flash drive.

Now, the problem is they come in .M4V

I can convert them into .MOV using Quicklime Pro (not sure if I can into anything else)
But the 360 only reads .WMV (I think)

Do you know of a way to do this? I Googled MOV to WMV converter, and I found a few things. However, They only let you convert, like, 5 minutes of a file for free.


My other option is to burn it to a DVD so it would play like any other DVD.

I thought of Nero, but I think the DVD movie maker cost money too.

Any ideas, free programs, or something would be great.

Console Games / Taxs on Point Cards
« on: May 26, 2007, 10:48:58 pm »
Has anyone bought a points card for ether Wii or 360? At Wal-Mart they cost $19.82…. before tax.

Why is it that point cards have tax? iTunes cards, and phone cards don’t have tax. Shouldn’t this qualify for that?

Heck, even when you ring them up at the register it says “swipe phone card” to active them.

Has anyone else run into this? Is it the same everywhere? Does anyone know why they charge tax for this?

Everything Else / Keeping a Laptop Cool
« on: April 14, 2007, 07:23:13 am »
Does anyone know of a good way to keep a laptop cool? I've been playing with mine, and it I think it's been running a little hot.

Or does anyone know of a program that would let you monitor your system temperature? I have a Dell Inspiron, if that matters

Thanks guys

Everything Else / Birthday gift ideas
« on: April 07, 2007, 08:25:03 pm »
So, my birthday is coming up.

My mom wants me to send her a list of what I want for my birthday, but I don't know what to ask for  :-\

Any ideas?

I've been thinking about a wired gaming keyboard. Can anyone recommend some keyboards, or a web site with some reviews?

That was the only idea I had. If you have any good gamer gift ideas please post them.

Podcasts / Gaming Steve's (Non-Alcoholic) Podcast Drinking Game
« on: March 28, 2007, 08:48:17 am »
Inspired by another Podcast I decided to make a "Gaming Steve's (Non-Alcoholic) Podcast Drinking Game!"

Instead of criticizing Steve for saying some phrases over and over, we use them in a drinking game.

So we need a list of stuff that happens in a Gaming Steve Podcast for us to drink to. For example:

When ever Steve says "With that being said," you take a drink.

It doesn't have to be just lines we know Steve will say. It could be something like every time you hear the retro review intro you take two drinks (needs two since it's rare  ;D )

So what are your ideas?

(Again, non-alcoholic drinks only please, we don't want to be responsible for anything happening  :) )

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Xbox Live

This my friends, is an awesome game. The original, TMNT for the arcade. Back when the turtles were cool. Not today’s TMNT that suck

Ok, so the graphics aren’t so great, and yeah it only has 2 buttons, but who cares?

It’s 4 player Co-Op locally or on Xbox Live.

It will be about 400 points

I for one will be getting this

Now all we need is the Simpson and X-Men arcade games  ;D

Everything Else / I need a Gaming Laptop
« on: March 13, 2007, 05:43:21 pm »
Formerly: “I need a new AGP 8x card”

(I know we get a lot of these kind of threads, but just be nice)

Long Version

So I was thinking about upgrading my PC's graphics card.

I have a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 card in a 8x AGP slot
I need the new card to be AGP 8x unless I want a new motherboard (which I don't)

I was testing to see if I could get CoH to look better (I know, I'm a broken record)

System Requirements Lab tell me I need at lest a "64 MB Direct3D Card (GeForce 5600+/Radeon 9600+)"
for recommended. Well, if I'm going to do this I might as well do better then that.

So I thought "I wonder if I could get Oblivion to run on this thing"
Turns out I just need a "128MB Direct3D compatible video card (NVIDIA GeForce 6800+ / ATI Radeon X800+)"

Short Version

Need: 128MB Direct3D compatible video card (NVIDIA GeForce 6800+ / ATI Radeon X800+)

Requirements: AGP 8x card

Price: less then $250

Preferably: Nvidia


System Requirements Lab sent me here

I don't know much about graphics cards, but any help you could give would be great
