  1. This remix has to be 10 years old by now.

    What a Deal!

    Mine would be a Steam key for the PC version.

    $25 is fine, but I think I'll have to actually to put a hold on my offer...I need to make sure my graphics card isn't DOA before I redeem the code, but it's looking like I'll need to upgrade my motherboard (and CPU and RAM) to handle the sheer manliness of the 7870 LE. As far as why I'd want to sell it in the first place, I hear it's a great game, I just know I'll be able to buy it for $10 or less during the winter sale or something. Your music is enjoyable enough, but yeah, it wouldn't really influence the negotiation. Same goes for Bioshock Infinite. If anyone wants it for $35 and can wait a week or two, let me know.
  4. Yep, love how this keeps devolving into a PC Master Race argument.
  5. If you have a PC to spare or if you're okay with playing ALL your games on a TV then more power to you. I'm not gonna play Dota 2 on my TV.

    Came with the video card I linked to. Edit: Dammit Gollgagh

    I'll sell you my code for $30.
  8. This is pretty huge, actually. Basically Lyrai's argument boils down to "for $100 I can buy something with a library built over 8 years, so it's not worth getting a system that sent out dev kits 2 months ago." Again, this applies to ANY new console. Your point is valid that there probably isn't much coming down the line that will entice the average gamer, but personally there's a bunch of stuff I'm interested in, e.g. Mercenary Kings, Cryamore, Pier Solar HD, FEZ, Kim Swift exclusive, etc.
  9. Cool, thanks for that info. Definitely a relief!
  10. It is concerning, but according to the link that Muuurgh posted (Eddie K is not a Boxer8 employee btw) this is an optimization problem on the part of devs rather than an issue with the OUYA hardware or software. Hopefully he's telling the truth, but if not there are reports that PS3 controllers work fine.
  11. The PSP is not 1080p. And the remake came out 2006.
  12. Coincidentally, one of OUYA's featured games right now is a Final Fantasy title. True, it's probably more like the original X-Box in that regard, which also had no established franchise exclusives. It also didn't make money until towards the end of its life cycle, while Microsoft threw money at it in the meantime. Obviously Julie Uhrman has thought about this, which is why she's made deals with people behind games like Portal, Papo & Yo, The Ball, Journey, etc. to make exclusives. They're not Final Fantasy of course, but it might help build momentum and attract more developers. That said, I don't see the OUYA library ever offering anything that will make anyone buy it because they just HAVE to have that game. On the other hand, I do see it potentially becoming the preferred platform for devs who want to port their PC and mobile games to console and don't want to expend the time, effort, and resources to put it on one of the big 3. So over time it will build up a collection of games that will be exclusive to it in the CONSOLE space. You'll probably never see Final Fantasy III on PS3, so if you want to play it in 1080p without touch controls blocking the screen, OUYA is the only way you're ever going to be able to.
  13. The Wii and PS2 aren't HD, and the 3DS is definitely not $100. Regardless, that criticism is honestly pretty silly since it can be applied to ANY new console. "Why are you paying $600 for a PS3?? It doesn't have anything and you can get a PS2 with tons of games for $200!"
  14. The Verge just posted their scathing review of OUYA today. The lack of games seems to be his biggest criticism, but honestly the 3DS launch lineup was almost as bad and I didn't see anyone giving it a 3.5. Also dev kits went out less than TWO MONTHS ago, so I'd say what they have is pretty impressive considering. Mainly though he seems to miss the point. It's not supposed to kill the 360 or PS3. The big question is "can you do better at this price?" The answer is "yes" for many people, but for those who don't already have an HDMI tablet and don't want to plunk down $200+ for emulators, there's really nothing else out there that can do the same thing for $99. Yeah, Wii homebrew works great...if you're fine with 480p. Of course, retail buyers aren't gonna care about all that, and I've never had high hopes for the console really taking off, but for my own needs, I can't wait to get mine.
  15. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2013/04/03/disney-closes-game-publisher-lucasarts.aspx http://kotaku.com/disney-shuts-down-lucasarts-468473749 Really sad to see them go...some of my fondest memories were of playing classic LucasArts point-and-clicks (many of which are fortunately now on Steam). They haven't had the best track record recently, but apparently this was an intentional business decision forcing them to make bad Star Wars games so the rest of the company would have a way to write off their losses. My sympathies to everyone who worked for them, including our own bustatunez and Jeff Ball. BRB breaking out my Fate of Atlantis floppies. Edit: Crap, ninja'd already. Thread merge plz

  17. Question: what thermal compound do you use?

    What a Deal!

    On a related note: who wants Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider? $70?

    What a Deal!

    Just bought this: http://slickdeals.net/permadeal/91996/newegg-powercolor-radeon-hd-7870-myst-edition-2gb-video-card-bioshock-infinite-tomb-raider-pc-game-coupons Apparently it competes with cards costing $100+ more, and AMD is running an awesome special until tomorrow where you get 2 free recently-released games with Radeon cards (Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider in this case).
  20. I think the consensus is your money would be better spent on a good DAC and/or amp.
