Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

I was away from my video game systems this weekend, so I got a NES emulator and downloaded Super Mario Bros 1. That game truly sucks. I can't believe the boss at every world is the same. How boring is that? And the ending: "Do it again" is not a satisfactory ending.

Super Mario Bros 3 is a MUCH better game. With the difference in graphics, hard to believe they were made for the same system. And there is much more variety in the game.

As for the difference between an emulator and Virtual Console. The emulator makes the games so much easier. I can save at any point of the game, so if I miss a tough jump, I go right back to the jump, instead to the beginning of the level. It might make the game too easy though (I finished SMB 1 in a few hours).

Guys, I don't have an X-Box, so I know this is a total noob question, but I figured I would ask in the **** thread: what exactly is the RROD?

Red Ring of Death, signifies hardware(?) failure on the 360. The normal lights boot green.

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

i know everyone is playing GTA4, which sits beside me unopened, but I'm pretty into Lost Odyssey right now and don't want to start GTA4 because I'm afraid I might not want to go back to LO for a while.

Just got Ming on disc two and going to steal a boat. I'm loving this game a ton!

Q: Super Mario Galaxy (wii)

If I get hit by an enemy and lose some of my life, can I replenish it with my stored coins Ive already collected, or do I HAVE to go and find a new coin to bring back health?

New Coins. Thats why during boss battles you don't go pick up the coins right away, or you have nothing to replenish your health...

Re: We should have a "random ****" thread in this forum imo

so I just ordered an external USB hard drive for ps3. I hooked it up to my computer, put a bunch of 1080p mkv moves on it (transcoded to work on ps3, which took about 5 min on my comp using a mkv2vob imo) then hook it up to my ps3, and boom a ton of HD movies. looks identical to blu-ray. ps3 is pretty sick as a media center. w00t.

glad you're enjoying it chesskid. just to note, you can use stuff like windows media player or a compatible network attached storage device to provide content to your ps3 over your lan as well.

this is like playing with a slinky and saying, "what a terrible toy"
