  1. Can't find the Tech 21. I see a Tech 30 for a lot more, which has good reviews; I also noticed this one but GC has a 5 star review for the Roland Cube you listed and this only got 4: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Marshall-MG15CD-15-Watt-Combo-482799-i1145903.gc Mm. Musing. I'll hit Guitar Center tomorrow and see if they have any of the Rolands and Marshalls on the floor for comparison probably, after I finish getting fingerprinted. (Edit: Yes, I did just change the constraints and flirt with a $120 amp)
  2. If you're looking for a good live concert performance amp you can find some that don't even come close to what you need for around $1600, and then you can find some that just blow you away for around $1600. I guess saying "good $100 amp" is pretty bad for context. I should have probably said "good beginner/practice amp" or something instead. Which might turn into "They're all going to sound crackly and staticky and have all this background hiss like your dad's $80 fender" anyway.
  3. I'm learning guitar and my current $30 pocket amplifier sucks! I'm looking at a Line 6 amp for $100 re: http://www.amazon.com/Line-Spider-Guitar-Combo-Amplifier/dp/B000JKVLE0/ http://www.guitarcenter.com/Line-6-Spider-III-15-Modeling-Combo-103944831-i1168996.gc Trying to find something around the $100 range, though I might hold off for something else (just got a job!). Tube is looking attractive; but tubes degrade and after about 4 years hit maintenance cycle (replace the tubes). I will probably just go with something solid state; but if I go tubes I'm going to pretty much learn where to get replacement tubes and how to open the damn thing and fix it within a week. The Line 6 has nice features though... it's the kind of thing I'd keep in the hotel room during MAGFest to practice with (I'll probably leave the room for concerts and to try to abduct the jam space). Might be worth getting even if I'm going to pick up a bigger amp in the future.
  4. Stalking users what the hell? People come into the channels, they say things, I remember the things they say (well, no, I remember details like how old they are or what games they play or what music they listen to or places they went... things they talk about). It's not like I have the police record database and the tracking satellite and I'm driving out and following people home and I'm calling their neighbors on the phone etc etc etc. I suppose you're going to call me a stalker since I know you're Canadian. Sorry I don't know much more, all you do is make rude comments and kickban me. Maybe you'd understand how people remember details about others if you had any friends.
  5.

  8. Do what Sosus says, yeah. It's safer and less threatening for your game; although if you can get a fresh Pokémon Silver for less than the cost of repairs, just take a shot at resoldering and buy a new game if you break it. If you're going for repairing your cart, just get a 3.8mm bit (I got one for a penny on eBay plus $4 shipping) and replace the battery yourself. It's fairly simple, pry the old one off very gently with a screwdriver (i.e. crack the solder off) and solder the new one back in. I'm sure you can see why I want to hack an actual slot into my SNES carts.... The biggest problem with replacing the batteries is that you have to be very careful. You're using brute force to rip off something that's soldered in in such a way that it's not to be removed; generally you only do this in two cases: You're sure you know exactly what you're doing. In this case, you probably already have decided not to even find out the price of repairs, because you know you won't break the damn thing. Having it repaired is going to cost as much/more than buying a new one. In this case, you're better off buying a new one anyway; breaking the old one won't set you back, so you might as well try to just slip in a $3 battery on your own first. This is pretty much why I want to augment my carts with a proper battery slot and cap; I can just swap the battery out when it gets near EOL, and the cap will give me a minute to make the change without losing my game. No need to crack solder and weld a new battery down; the entire set of tools needed is reduced to a toothpick.
  9. Didn't you bring that thing up last time I had a philosophical question?
  10. Yeah.. I guess if you're after collector value, a cart with a dead battery might be better than a cart with a replaced battery. Then there's the "Unholy Hands" dilema, where if NOA did the battery replacement (and soldered in a slot for some reason), would it be considered still "pure"? But eh. The actual "damage" to the cart could be limited to two blobs of solder on the leads for the original battery, easily reversed; but that still would probably bounce people who would much rather play CT on their PSX, and just want the cart for bragging rights.
  11. I've got Zelda 3 now, and it's... not saving. At all. The battery has probably crystalized; the low voltage across the terminals isn't trickle charging it at all, so I need to replace it. The replacement procedure will be pretty simple, but annoying. The battery's soldered on, so I need to crack it off with a screwdriver and solder a new one. I could tape it, but the glue will weaken over time and the connection may sometimes be weak enough to lose contents of SRAM. Further, in the future if I need to replace the battery I'll lose all saved games again! So now I'm thinking about it, and I'm considering a way around this issue. My current thinking is to modify the game very slightly, pretty much making battery replacement easier and simpler. This involves adding a real CR2032 slot (like on your computer's motherboard) and a small capacitor so the battery can be out for a few minutes without losing static RAM contents. This should make future replacement and battery testing safe and easy. So here's a question: Would you buy a cart with a replaced battery? If the battery's dead you can't save games; but the procedure involves soldering and desoldering around inside the game. How about a more specific question. Let's say on eBay you spotted two copies of... say.. Chrono Trigger, each with about the same current bid, no box, and no book. One copy is vanilla, but the other boasts a battery replacement: Would you be more or less likely to bid on the cleaned up/restored game than on the vanilla copy?
  12. OK so my current list includes: Breath of Fire Breath of Fire 2 Chrono Trigger Donkey Kong Country Donkey Kong Country 2 Donkey Kong Country 3 Earthbound Final Fantasy 2 (4) Final Fantasy 3 (6) F-Zero {Obtained} Illusion of Gaia {Obtained} Kirby Super Star Lufia {E-bay} Lufia 2 Megaman X Megaman X2 Megaman X3 Secret of Mana {E-bay} StarFox {Obtained} Super Mario All-Stars & Super Mario World {Loaned out} Super Mario RPG {Loaned out} Super Mariokart Super Metroid {Obtained} Yoshi's Island Zelda 3: A Link to the Past My secondaries include: Castlevania IV Castlevania: Dracula X Final Fantasy Mystic Quest Plok Super Punch-Out Tetris and Dr. Mario Zombies Ate My Neighbors I'll buy the secondaries as convenient; the primaries I really want. Space shooters and such aren't really my type of game.. and Terranigma I'm not sure I can get in English. SO is japanese only The other stuff... I'll slowly amass as time goes on, with trickle-in funds. At $20/game, my primary list is $500 alone! I'll obtain 1 per week or so for now; this week is Lufia and SoM. Of course I'll be raiding Good Will and the flea markets for $1-$5 games too.
  13. I HAVE killer instinct, some black cart I got raiding SNES games from someone's trash can ("oops, Playstation 2 is out, time to trash all these old crapheaps"). IIRC that's how I got StarFox too. I haven't actually PLAYED KI, but I have it. EDIT: On the same note, it doesn't actually work.
  14. I should amend Godwin's Law to say something about porn.
  15. If it's region locked, but SNES pin-out, I can play it I'm sure; but I'd rather only play games in English, unless text isn't a real part of the game (RPGs in German/Japanese? No). Star Ocean I think was EU released, but I can't find it on e-bay; ToP was super famicom form and that won't work. As for Super Scope, I'd love to obtain a working one (you know how those worked? The Nintendo official SNES developer's documentation describes them in the last chapters of Book 2, it's awesomeness; they decoded the image on the screen to find codes hidden in the graphics). They eat 6 D batteries though; I'd have to find rechargables in that size. No way am I modding a SS6 for internal Li+ or wall power. I know Lufia 2 comes first. I'll play Lufia first since I'll get it first. From a storyline perspective, playing Lufia first is better because of the way the story is designed; they trickle in information post media res, so you're not intended to know the past before you know the future. The heck is Gradius 3? Another RPG?
  16. I can't get ToP or Star Ocean, they're not going to work with a US-type FC Twin o_O ToP never even got an english translation well, GBA...)
  17. I just got myself an FC Twin and now want to build up my SNES collection. My target is: Breath of Fire Breath of Fire 2 Chrono Trigger Donkey Kong Country Donkey Kong Country 2 Donkey Kong Country 3 Earthbound Final Fantasy 2 (4) Final Fantasy 3 (6) Illusion of Gaia Kirby Super Star Lufia Lufia 2 Secret of Mana StarFox Super Mario All-Stars & Super Mario World Super Mario RPG Super Mariokart Super Metroid Yoshi's Island Zelda 3: A Link to the Past Are there any essentials I've missed? Super Punch-Out doesn't look that great.. might be a secondary for me.
  18. Why has nobody done the theme for Big Bowser from Yoshi's Island? The one that's all like... freaking heavy metal. Rock out man.
  19. It's really great, but a little distressing... Those lyrics are just for musical purposes, right? I mean, even though I can't hear it too well (I can listen to NORMAL songs and hear chinese), the lyrics sound like you think your bf is cheating on you o.o;;; I'm kind of big on life-long, trusting relationships... really o.o it disturbs me a bit. I've not been allowed to talk to my bf for 317 days today (...isn't that a prime number?), and I still won't give up on him. I believe he's waiting.. i'm waiting... erm enough about me o.o;; Anyhow, I had to force my way through to listen to the song, but it's really great. Depressing, but nicely done; and no matter what anyone tells you, you can sing. If anyone wants to dispute that, they're obviously putting the headphones in their ASS instead of their ears. This has always been a great song to do a "soft mix" on, and ... it's definately soft! Perfect arrangement overall. At any rate, good song, good lyrics, bad effect on the mind (unless you happen to be one of those assholes who's like "haha you fucked those four girls and your wife never found out" and needs to be shot in the balls )
  20. This is an awesome mix. If you've heard the original and played the game, you know this is an awe-commanding movement by Ryan8bit. If not, though, or if you're a little short in the imagination and philosophy side, I'll explain. (Note: these are my views and do not necessarilyreflect the mind of the remixer) In the game Crystalis, the Angry Sea is a sea with an alter in the center of the western half. There is a HUGE waterfall, and ther are monsters and whirlpools everywhere. The Gold Statue was taken from the alter, and so of course "the gods are angry," as the saying goes. When you place the gold statue on the alter (you gotta find and fix it first), the whirlpool blocking any travelers' way is removed. Thus the sea is calmed. The original music ( http://www.zophar.net/nsf Track 4 of the NSF unfortunately it cuts at the end of the loop) was intense (as much as it gets on the NES) and sounded angry. This remix compliments that mood, replacing it with total and complete serenity. Indeed, one may well expect "the gods" to go out of their way to ensure safe passage to all travelers. The instruments are great, and the extramusical idea of calming is excellently portrayed. That, and it reminds me that the original Crytstalis had GREAT MUSIC (a true masterpiece), and the Gameboy version should be burned!
  21. ...a little? Maybe, maybe moderately dissappointing, somewhere inbetween. I would have expected better for a dance mix, since this is one of my favorite genres. Actually, I expected something similar to the Final Fantasy Crystal Rave mix or Saria2.mid (that's somewhere on vgmusic.com), in that they both sound full and uppity or something. I don't really know what it is, but this mix sounds a little empty. What was good: 1. The drums ruled. Perfect timbre for a dance mix. 2. The backup was great, nice slap bass (?) and what sounded like some form of (possibly corrupted) impulse wave. 3. Great vocal interventions, with the twisted manner. Nice effects and interjections, with the bike bell and all. What could have been better: 1. The main melody was kind of weak. It had a ton of backup harmonies, and it sounded like it was afraid of them and was really tiny. 2. That instrument by itself kinda bugs me, sounds like it's a little gloomy, and the rest of the music is all party-style. Couldn't you have pepped it up a bit? 3. The bass was reallyREALLYreally overpowered. I can barely hear it even if I strain. Care to take another shot at it? That was done once with the Bubble Bobble NotATrueEnding mix, and I really hate to see a good mix have one tiny tiny aspect of it create abrasion. Rating: [--------------O-----] 7.5: Room for improvement, but good enough that it hurts not to request another take at it.
