Re: Was the Nintendo DSi a flop?

I was only interested in a DSi for Shantae: Risky's Revenge, but ended up just waiting until the New 3DS came out and got that instead. :mrgreen: (yes, this was 2015 [I'm behind in life :|])

Also, I heard most/all of the augmented reality games sucked or something? :?

Ass-Raping Pirates of the High Seas

So I just decided I wanted to listen to some Ass-Raping Pirates On the High Seas again, and the link doesn't work: http://www.parodius.com/~memblers/AssRapingPiratesOnTheHighSeas.zip I clicked on a bunch of other links on this page, and they're all fine: https://nesdev.com/2A03/ And before you guys ...

Re: Laptop Buying

I decided not to go with the Tecra (no dual drives, no GPU, haven't received a response from my email, and it still seems pretty pricey). I also decided that the Alienware was too big and I don't need that high of specs for what I'm doing. I checked out some MSI notebook reviews and about a third of...

Re: Laptop Buying

Now that I think about it... maybe brand loyalty isn't such a great idea: Toshiba laptops aren't readily available, they don't seem to have what I'm trying to achieve, and they're not being responsive. People have been making really cool Deep Learning based software to do cool things. For example, t...

Re: Laptop Buying

As I said in my first post, you'll probably find an occupied M2 slot for the SSD, and an empty HDD bay, plus the optical drive. So probably up to two HDDs (with caddy) + one SSD. I'm really hoping this is true, so I emailed the sales department a couple days back but they've yet to respond. :( Thos...

Re: Laptop Buying

Thanks, guys! After much consideration, I decided to go with a Tecra A50-E-BTO. Reasons include: • Intel i7 quad-core processor • large enough display (15.6-inch) • 1920x1080 resolution • updegradeable to 32 GB of RAM (I'll go with 16 GB for now) • I checked the ports and they all seem to be in plac...

Re: Laptop Buying

Okay, I just came back from Fry's Electronics. It pretty much looked like this throughout the store: https://s3-media4.fl.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/aYxEjTPyK-duGtiOKvJyEA/o.jpg https://i.imgur.com/58p8dLm.jpg Last time I was here was a year ago, building a desktop PC for my mom, and it did not look like th...

Laptop Buying

So my laptop turned 10 this year. I think I started using it July 13, 2009 based on file information. So I stopped everything I was doing and started looking into getting a new one. First of all, I'm biased towards Toshiba (this one is a Toshiba Satellite U505. It hardly had any problems that weren'...

Re: I have some interesting game related questions....

This 'too much content' phenomena isn't just with video games. Realize that you won't have time to watch every film, listen to every song, let alone play every game. And games take time and skill to play, you can sit back and let the movie experience sink in, and, better yet, you can do work while l...

I like to think Mega Man collects extra heads because those are what get destroyed when he 'dies.'

Re: Editing music in Zelda 2 - The Adventure Of Link

The doc is explaining it in Lego block detail, and you want it as a pre-made Lego building. I'm afraid you'll have to build your song up in Lego block detail in the format and arrangement that Zelda 2's music engine expects. Or... You can do something like this and replace the music engine with you...
