^^Is that one good? It's super cheap now. Is Splinter Cell good too?


The Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell series blew my mind on the Xbox.

Yeah, the games provides lots of variety, that don't get bored even a bit
I like the stories too and the fighting combos are just fun to do

Yeah, the best thing about the system is the ability to play old nintendo stuff.  The only current game I played on mine when I had one was Wii sports.  The rest of the time I played throwback games.  So good.

how much of a plus is that feature when emulators for computers work just as well?

It's a plus for me because
-my computer has a 15 inch screen, my TV's screen is bigger
-Have you ever tried to play an N64 emulator?  That shit works for OG nintendo, but the more buttons on a controller the harder it is to play.  I'd much rather use the gamecube controller to play star fox.
-You have a use for all of those game cube games you have lying around.

i use a ps2 controller with an adapter for my computer for n64 games.  the analog stick works just fine, try it. 

i have about 15 or so ps2 games, but i havent played any of them using my ps3 for a couple of reasons:  1) im tired of them, and 2) i'd rather play ps3 games.  ps2 games just look too blocky and crappy now to hold my interest for very long.  some people say graphics dont matter and its all about the gameplay.  that is true to some extent, but having an hd setup makes the eye-candy that much sweeter and it is hard to compromise.

i understand what you are saying though.  i just dont think it would be considered a big plus for me.

If you're a lightgun fan like me, don't forget to grab the Wii Zapper thing and Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles.  Co-op mode with a friend is fucking dope.  Coming soon on DS, Mario Party and a new Final Fantasy game.  I really like what they've done with Mario Galaxy.

I'm about to mod my Wii from a friend. If anyone wants to warn me before I brick it, please let me know now. Otherwise, I'll let you know how it goes.

Mind explaining the whole R4 DS thing to me?  It's just a cartridge that has a slot for a flash card right?  Just download the game and put it on the flash and it just boots it? 

If it's easy, I'd buy a DS just to do it.

dealextreme has the DS backup shite you need.  I'm sure a simple Google search will pull up how to use em.

Actually, with issues arising from their dealextreme server being on USA soil, they were threatened to be shut down if they continued to sell that product.  So, they outsourced it to these guys (basically same dudes, except server is located elsewhere).

http://www.volumerate.com/details.vr/sku.1202

Ingredients required: R4 DS, microSD card, and computer

R4 is very easy drag and drop.  Just download the "operating system" from here : http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=858
Drag the entire contents into the root folder of the microSD card.
Drag the ROMs of the games you downloaded into the root folder (don't overfill since a SAV file will be created for each gamesave and going over will corrupt your microSD card)
Fire up your DS Lite and kick yourself for not getting one sooner.  Easiest "mod" ever.
If you want to, you can even download "themes" to change the look of the user interface here: http://www.ndsthemes.com/

Somebody else want to step in and explain how to work moonshell to play MP3, watch movies, and open ebooks using the the R4 (since I've never done it)?

interesting about the server issue.. i bought a cell phone blocker last month (highly illegal and very very recommended) with no problems - but i know how much of an annoying gnat-on-the-ass Nintendo can be (located in our city).   PSP 1.5firmware guy here - that is enough handheld hacking fun for me. 

derails aside, getting super mario galaxy tomorrow before the helliday rush.

The R4 software comes with Moonshell. You just gotta convert them to the .dpg files. There's a program called "Batch Dpg". It's pretty good if you want to watch skate videos on the shitter, or beat off at the office toilet at lunch.

Quality's perfect too.

Just beat it, and it's probably better than Mario 64.  No Rock Band for you?
