Well, I also have a Gameboy, Gamecube, and I guess since some of you people are mentioning PDAs, then My iPAQ too. (Everquest! Worms! Anthelion! Flight simulator! Nethack! fun fun)

Aren't emulators illegal?...I don't touch them. Or consoles. They just aren't up to KotOR in all its hi-res beauty!

I really don’t see a difference in graphics between Xbox’s version of KOTOR and the PC version other than PC cut scenes don’t look the same as Xbox’s and PC took out a reflective texture in the Dantooine level. The reflective texture looked awful on Xbox and made it to gaudy looking

But anyway I am proud of all my systems mostly proud of my PC and Xbox. I go for the systems with the better graphics and Xbox and PC just own all the rest. Maybe not in games or looks (Xbox) but they play the best and graphics are at there best, depending on your game though.

No, emulators are not illegal. It is however illegal to play the rom of a game you do not own.

I have 3 emulators on my PC that I play often - Master System II, N64 and SNES emulator (and of course, I own all the games of the roms I play *cough*).

People who like all consoles confuse me slightly. And 'Halo' isn't particularly that good anyway. Roll on February 27th and the release of 'Everything or Nothing' for wonderment beyond limits.

How can I say that 'Halo' isn't that good? Simple, just read the following line...

I FOUND 'HALO' TO BE BORING. IT'S NOT VERY GOOD. IN FACT, I'VE DREAMED OF BETTER GAMES WHILE SLEEPING. AND YOU DON'T WANT TO KNOW WHAT I DREAM ABOUT, TRUST ME.

There - that should secure my place in the Lunatic Hall of Fame. Seriously, though, 'Halo' is quite terrible. In my opinion, of course.

That's because you're closed-minded like half of the PC gamers out there.

And by the way, Halo owns your face.

I played Halo in a tryout the other day, the inverse controls were a little annoying but I didn't have any time to get used to it/turn it off. It was the very beginning where your talking to that guy, it was ok. I'm sure it's a great game, maybe when i'm bored and I have money I can buy it for PC.

LOL

Yep, Halo is the best console game I've ever played, and Halo 2 is gonna make every other game on every other console look stupid.

OK, while my origins were on Apple ][ and mainframe games in the 80's, and I had an original GameBoy in 1989 (for travel), I've been pretty much a PC Gamer forever.

Now I've broadened:
- PC laptops for most action gaming
- Mac Powerbooks for RPG's and other games as available.
- GBA SP ... in search of a good portable Star Wars game
- and we just got a GameCube for Christmas, but that is not something I play much - mainly Kirby/Mario/Animal Crossing with the kids.

ET Warrior, I'm not a PC gamer. I own a PlayStation2. My PC is barely fast enough to run the internet, let alone games. The only reason that I said that people who like ALL consoles confuse me is because earlier in the post DarkLord60 asked me how I felt about people who owned ALL consoles after I stated that, as a PlayStation2 owner, I was technically required to hate Xbox users. Try looking at all the facts before making statements. Besides, what does it matter if I think '007 NightFire' is better than 'Halo'? I'm only one person, voicing his entitled opinion.

I thought that was the idea of a Forum. I apologise if the idea of this Forum is to conform with everyone else or say things that you are told to say by the people who have been here longer.

I like Halo.... A lot, but I have one teeny problem which keeps it from being the best console FPS i've ever played... HALF THE TEXTURES IN ONE LEVEL ARE REPEATED FOR THE REST OF THE LEVEL!
*cough Truth and REconciliationcough*


Vader's wife was very pregnant when she died 19 years ago. All of a sudden a 19 year old who is very strong in the force and has a distinct resembalance to him in his younger days rolls in from Vader's home planet with his old Master Obi-Wan (Who was the ONLY other person preset at the time his wife died. And to boot, the kid's last name is Skywalker.

So in answer to your question, he knew Luke was his son because his name is Darth Vader, and not Darth Retard.

I have a PC and a PC it shall be until a Virtual Reality console comes along, becuase PC has better graphics, you have more options to customise, you don't have to wait in turn for the TV to use them and anything you can do on a console you can do on a PC.

I'd go and check out about ROMS, I remember watching something like "The Screen Savers" on Tech TV, and a mention about things such as ROMS for systems that are no longer produced, ie Atari 2600, NES, and even arcade systems are able to be used by anyone, but check out what specifically it is about, and what countries it applies to.......


Any resemblence to intelligence in my posts is purely coincidental and accidental..

No posts were harmed in the creation of this post!
