I've been kind of ambivalent about picking up the game thanks to all the BS that we went through while waiting for it. But now I'm reading all these reports that it kicks major ass, and I also noticed that I managed to score Wednesday and Thursday off from work. Perhaps the universe is telling me to pick it up?

I too recently jumped on the console gaming bandwagon (I bought a PS2). My strategy is just to shop in the 'greatest hits' collections, thinking that I'll let millions of other people figure out of it sucks or not at $70 a pop, then I'll skim off the creamy titles for $29.

Ratchet and Clank is kickass.

Kerry's national health care plan is another giant disaster. Doesn't he know, you don't have the right to a heart transplant? Where the hell did he get that idea? You work for it so you can pay it. That's how it's been, all through the ages, if you can't afford it, you can't get it. Whatever happened to personal responsibility?

Wow! I'm all about personal responsibility, but this is either the most ignorgant or the most callous thing I've read in a long time... Nobody has full control over thier health. What's to say that some 11 year-old girl with a heart defect whose dad happens to work at the quickie mart has any less right to a transplant than a wealthy person?

The 'launch links' box is missing from the main page for me as well (although I can see it from the posting page).

I'm using MSIE 6.0.2600.2180.xpsp_sp2_rtm.040803-2158

I got a better idea: if you want to sound off about politics, go to a politics-centred website or newsgroup and indulge yourself to your heart's content. This is a gaming website, and most of us come here to read about and discuss gaming.

(I can't help but wonder if people who come here to debate politics do so because they are hoping to duel with a less skilled or informed opponent)

Well, if you do any kind of search on the 'net you will find a good number of sites pointing to the evils of Aspartame. You will also find a number of fairly reputable organizations (the FDA for example) that think it's perfectly harmless. The very fact that there is such controversy leads me personally to err on the side of caution.

Too much of anything is never a good thing, but sugar in moderate quanities is perfectly natural, even necessary to our bodies daily functioning.

Everyone is of course welcome to consume whatever they like.

Edit: The FDA has been known to make mistakes.

To the guy who's given up drinking soda and is instead drinking Kool-Aid or Ice Tea (probably the instant kind): buddy, you haven't given up anything except a few CO2 burps; that crap is just as bad.

To the guy drinking just diet sodas: Aspartame (the crap they use to sweeten the drink instead of sugar) is evil, nasty, toxic, crap.

I think the site is overloaded, but I noticed in the URL something about diesel. Is Honda coming out with a diesel engine or something?

I currently use cassette adapter for this purpose, but an FM mod would be much cooler cuz it's wireless. It would also work in a car with only a CD/Radio deck. They already make FM modulators, as people here have mentioned, but they require thier own power source (either cigarette-lighter or batteries). What I want is one that slots into the PCMCIA port, and is powered by the laptop (which I run off the car's lighter socket).

It'd also be cool to be working on your laptop and have the sound beamed out to your FM walkman/MD/whatever.

What a bunch of crap. Sure, development costs have risen, but so has the size of the audience/market. Microsoft uses the same flawed argument to justify their prices.

How much does it cost Intel or AMD to develop a processor? Yet they can turn around and sell the things for $100 (and they have to produce and actual, physical product).

What I want someone to build is a PCMCIA fm-modulator, so I can listen to tunes from my laptop through my car radio.

If there are any hardware engineers reading this board, hurry up and get on it!

I'm surprised that nobody has mentioned my favorite 'remember when':

Quarterdeck software's QEMM

Ah, the days of robbing conventional memory by readressing it from your graphics card.
