Re: Most atmospheric game?

Just look at the buildings and their furnishings, the vehicles, the objects, etc. They looked very realistic for the PlayStation in Silent Hill. I believe you are thinking about pre-rendered non-interactive backgrounds such as those in RE. The objects in those games that are handled by the character...

Re: Should Timothy Lumsden post in the same text colour as us?

Whenever I'm bothered by text color I just highlight it. The only colors that bother me are pastels and neons and those that don't sufficiently contrast with the surrounding color. Those couple posts in white text reminded me of my favorite guitar solo post. After Maggot Brain is the groups name but...

Re: Anyone gonna buy GTA on the DS?

I will pick it up, but like most of you, i'll be patient and wait till the price is right. I have all the top down versions of GTA, and love 'em to bits! :D if it's like the old gta games, i will. they were great, but i can't stand the 3D ones. You can play GTA 3 from a top down perspective and it ...

Re: Has advanced graphics in games enhanced the overall gameplay

Of course they are more enjoyable if the graphics are good. That's not unlike making love to a lady. You'd enjoy it better if she's good looking.

Re: AVG 8.0

If you can find a program like fileWATCH you can use it to watch the installation on a supported OS and find what drivers are placed in the \<windir>\System32 folder along with the application folder in program files. If you try a basic AV app that doesn't rely on registry entries, i.e, if it'll sti...

Re: iPod battery

This is where I ordered a replacement for my old lady's 80GB iPod video last summer. They include everything you need even a how to video and the battery is better than the OEM. http://www.ipodbatterydepot.com/ Getting that case open is a mother. I had to use a small screwdriver for eyeglasses a so-...

Re: Most atmospheric game?

I picked up Silent Hill and played it for a few minutes today. It's great. The graphics were the most realistic real-time 3D graphics available on the PlayStation when the game came out. The randomness of the falling snow is what they considered a technological feat, not the fogginess or limited vis...

Re: Dreamcast magazine

I had all but the first issue of the US versions until they got destroyed in my relative's leaky basement from mold, mildew and a bunch of nearly microscopic white colored bugs who apparently feed off the mold. All I have left are the demo GDs. :cry: Those were some high quality mags. The covers wer...
