Hey guys, long time no post! In all honesty, I just haven't had any important stuff to actually say these days. I still lurk on LJ about once every other day or so, so I'm at least reading entries. XD

Anyway, I have returned with a purpose. I've got $30 worth of certificates for Best Buy and I need some game suggestions to spend it on. Since Best Buy's PS2 selection is dwindling rapidly (and nothing new worthwhile is coming out for it), available options are the DS, Wii, PC, and possibly the 360 (though, I'm seriously debating dumping it and switching to the PS3; however, that hasn't happened yet so if there's really something interesting out there, let me know!).

I've been thinking of either Kirby Super Star Ultra (even though I've cleared the original a couple of times) or the Mega Man Zero Collection (always wanted to play MMZ, but never got around to it, lack of a GBA didn't help when it first came out), but since they're both remakes/compilations, there are other means of playing them, so something else might seem more lucrative. And that's where you guys come in! Hopefully, after ~5 years of (somewhat) interaction, you basically know my tastes (or at least a guess at them), so I won't further bore you with that information. ;p

Anyway, I'd appreciate the suggestions.

Today is the 10th anniversary of the Dreamcast's US launch. Long live the ill-fated system that changed so any gamers. (Now, I just need to purchase all of the games I still want for the system, and I'll be set.)

(Hopefully more posts coming soon...?)

Yes, it's been ages since I made an LJ post. Several computer snafus have really limited my ability to do things online in the past several months. Well, that added to the fact that I really haven't had much to post about, barring any memes or GET!game posts (which I haven't done anyway...).

Anyway, I'm stumped, and hopefully, someone out here has some suggestions that might help me. (If anyone on my FL knows someone else that might have an idea, send 'em over this way if you could.)


Last weekend, I ended up winning a moderately sized 42" Insignia LCD HDTV from a raffle. Delighted at the prospects of being able to play games (barring legacy stuff like my Genesis) on a fairly large picture. (So much so that I gave the 19" LCD HDTV that I purchased about 2 years ago to my friend as his TV was broken...)

To my dismay, however, the only system that I have that "works" (correctly) is my 360. My PS2, Dreamcast, and Wii, which all connect via Composite cables, are experiencing almost a half-second lag between button presses and their timing on the screen. (On top of a really blurry picture, even running in a normal (4:3) screen resolution.) I've done some research on the causes, so I understand why this is happening, but does anyone know of any work arounds that you or others that you know have done to combat this?

I've tried using Component cables for the PS2 and Wii, and while that made the picture bearable, the delay still was prevalent and some textures weren't even loading (for example, shading textures on weapons in the Equip Weapons screen of Drakengard 2) that I know had loaded with the Composite cables (on both my new TV and my old one). The User Manual for the TV says to connect camcorders and game consoles (that use Composite) to the AV2 slot on the left side of the TV, but that made no noticeable difference when I tried it. Some of the FAQs I read said to find a "Game" setting for the TV which turns off the processing that causes the delay, but my TV doesn't even have it (which is funny, considering most of those FAQs were written 3 years ago...). And, the strange thing is that my old TV never had any of these problems when I would connect any of the consoles to it.

Anyway, if anyone has any suggestions for me to try out, I'd appreciate it. Anything is better than either having to pass the TV off to my mom and buy a new one or sell the TV and buy a new one. Of course, if necessary, I'll do that and find a TV that will work with my consoles.


Maybe I'll throw a GET!game post up soon, chronicling all of my purchases from like the year and a half. (XD)

So... I'm alive. No, I may not post often, but I at least take the time to read my f-list at least twice a day.

Have a meme, yoinked from Chris.

So, it's been like 4 weeks, but I'm back finally.

College is going fine so far, I guess, but I wish that Fall Break would get here sooner... :[

3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest.

"Remember to use /* to begin the block comment and */ to end it.
4. Enter the code from Figure 2-77 in the TextPad window, using the escape code sequence /t, as indicated. Hint: Eleven spaces separate the M's in line 5; then each successive line has two less spaces.

From Java Programming: Comprehensive Concepts and Techniques, a book which I borrowed back when I was coding a crappy Java application earlier in the year(and have yet to return...).

As for tagging, I'm too lazy to look at my f-list, so if anyone wants to be tagged by this, make your own post. ;[
