As someone still rocking the discrete sound card (shut up it sounds better!) I too mourn the regression of audio on the PC. I really wish Microsoft hadn't killed hardware audio with Vista (damn you Vista!). Plus the asshats at Creative killing the superior A3D.
I still haven't found a good sound card. I loved my old Audigy 2ZS, 16, etc. with bass. Onboards suck!

7. I want a standalone smartwatch. Mar 18, 2014, 03:31 Ant
 
I still use a Casio Data Bank 150 watch, but I need to replace it! I don't use mobile phones nor do I want one. iPod Touches are too big, heavy, and hold due to my disabilities. My old watch work nicely on my wrist.

Cool, remember it being my favorite game i had on the old Apple IIGS

Yeah Gauntlet was pretty badass at the time, not sure how it will hold up though.

When I was a kid, and this was in the arcade. Oh man! The game, actually TALKED!!!! ***Mind blown*** So decades later I'm messing around with MAME and, "acquired" a few old arcade classic ROMS. I fired this one up, nostalgically thinking, "my kids are gonna LOVE this!" Man, did my childhood memory ever build this one up. It's still a fun little co-op hack and slash in it's own way. But, technology definitely wasn't as advanced as I thought it was in 1985.

I remember encountering a Sinistar machine for the first time as a kid, and it scaring the fuck out of me.

I never saw and played it. I played in MAME several years ago. Wow, hard and scary!

What is with the age limit on the web site? Come on it was a kids arcade game. So they are making it too gory for kids? what a bunch of idiots.

Arrowhead has not exactly blessed the gaming community with solid games, they would not be my first choice.
Also, what's with the secured connection? Why does the game's web site needs that?

27. I <3 Gauntlet. Mar 17, 2014, 14:13 Ant
 
I used to play the original arcade games too much. This does look like Diablo, Torchlight, etc. which I also enjoy though. I never got into Gauntlet 3, Legends, etc. though.

In a city with good ISP competition, you get good service. Funny how that works.

Competition isn't great here. No FiOS. No Google. It's Comcast or it's one of the few Condo internet options, if your building has a contract with them.
Same here. Funny how FIOS is available down the hills. Bah.

No subscriptions for me. I rarely buy physical stuff from Amazon. I do buy non-DRMed MP3s though.

If you order a total over 35bucks you get free shipping anyway.

But not all items quality for that. Like I wanted to order Mi Paste toothpaste, Casio Data Bank 150 watch, etc.

I still prefer physical medias especially with videos since Internet can be slow, unstable, DRM, etc.

Not to mention that, at present, even "Super HD" from Netflix is pretty rubbish quality compared to a Blu-Ray disc. Hell, there are some films on Blu-Ray where the AUDIO bitrate is higher than the total bitrate on a Netflix stream...
Yeah, that too for qualities.

Good interview. I liked Computer Chronicles but always wanted longer episodes and more Amiga news (before '94). Glad Stewart is doing well today. He sure has aged!
CC rocked! I loved it when was I was a callow ant. Stewart still looked good today. I am almost done watching the (thi/3)rd part. I like the gaming parts. I didn't know he was a gamer. He had some good old game favorites. All those old game shots and footages. OMG! ;D

I laughed at Peter Norton caption.

We all know that tablets have uses but PC's are better for work and serious stuff like games.

I wish articles proclaiming the death of the PC would take a hike. And they ignore laptops which are basically PCs as well.
And Macs are also PCs (personal computers)!!
