The Spam Thread!
Well, GTA3 and later games should run just fine on your device, considering it's been several years since R* released it, and they aren't really that demanding anyway.

That SSC game screenshot just gave me a rather lulzy idea, being the savvy lad that I am:

Seriously though, the models are quite blocky but they still look decent. Dave and I assumed that they're deliberately done as such since the developers expect that most of them kids who'll play the game use low-end devices (e.g. older single-core devices like the A13 or entry-level dual-cores).

I may very well be able to get my own place to live in the fall, if everything goes to plan.

If I do, I was hoping to just get the digital cable/internet/phone bundle, but I may have to stick with satellite. The local cable company appears to have dropped Al Jazeera America, the only news channel worth watching IMO. They also don't carry Discovery Family in HD, even though Discovery, TLC and Animal Planet get HD and SD feeds. Sad

I watch these "game chasing" videos, where random people document their days going around to flea markets and thrift stores all across the USA or Canada trying to find NES, SNES, Genesis/MD, PlayStation... basically any kind of game for any system. There is a big emphasis on classic games from the 80s and 90s though. Some popular shows on YouTube are The Game Chasers and The NESPursuit.

Watching these, I think of the following. Why can't my state have awesome flea markets like in Texas or Southern California? Some of the things they find at flea markets there are amazing, such as Sega CD systems or TurboGrafx-16 consoles and games.

Second of all, why so many darn sports games? This comes across too often... the people go through a stack of games and they trudge through a load of sports titles on top of the already numerous shovelware games. They don't point that out in the videos that much, but I can relate to the frustration they sometimes have. When I look through a stack of games at a thrift store or garage sale, there are old copies of Madden or NBA Live, usually around five to 10 years old. Hardly anyone plays these old versions these days, save for perhaps die-hard NBA or NFL fans. And if you end up getting a box of games that has some you want but a ton of these sports games, you're stuck with them. Their trade in value is extremely low as it is and some stores won't even take them anymore.

There are a few exceptions for sports, like NBA Jam or Tecmo Super Bowl, but those are from the golden days. Not very many modern sports games are arcade like I feel.

Blame Bernie Stolar. He vetoed JRPGs for the Saturn and gave Sports titles a free pass.

Yep. Do you have any plans? Personally, I plan on relaxing and watching TV or play video games. We might have a small Easter dinner too.

Speaking of Easter...

Here is my plain FC Twin clone console. Had it since Christmas 2007 technically (replacement was obtained Jan 2008) and still works well. Needs a little bit of bunny....
