    Microsoft XBOX ONE

    In theory Steam makes up for it with their sales. You can always save a big chunk off retail if you time it right, and there's a whole catalogue of cheap games ($2.50 - $10.00) all year round. I think I've only paid full retail for one major release on Steam (Skyrim, because I wanted it...

    Microsoft XBOX ONE

    People shouldn't forget how successful Steam is, even though it is loaded with DRM, and prevents trading of used games. In theory Steam represents everything bad about digital delivery, yet it has done nothing but good for PC gaming. And gamers don't just tolerate it, they love it. I'm not...

    USB charging

    Your questions are already answered, but I just wanted to clarify something. You seem to be concerned that using a USB charger rated at over 500mA is going to damage your Pandora. Nothing to worry about there, as amps don't work that way :) The charger sends 5V to the Pandora, and the Pandora...

    Welcome Wally as mod.

    Pfft, Melbourne. (Actually Melbourne is great. Sydneysiders express their denial through insults.) So, much has happened this week. :o

    Classic, non-upgraded preorders / Current status page?

    I think there may be a dual interpretation of "going to your head" here. The usual meaning is when someone gets egotistical or boastful - they are said to get a big head. "All that fame and success went to his head. What a wanker." But I don't think Foxgod meant it that way. I think he meant it...

    Searching for ancient DOS game: Grand Prix. No, not that one.

    Indeed, nothing is truly abandonware until the developer says so (in which case it would be freeware / public domain). They still appear to be selling it too - see my second link above. I just went out on a limb and paid for the download pack. I'm not confident that I'm actually going to get...

    Searching for ancient DOS game: Grand Prix. No, not that one.

    ^ That's the one. v2 remains elusive though. I came across that address, but I think those details are long dead. Found some more details though: http://webcache.goog...n&ct=clnk&gl=au http://wizscot.com/w...collection.html

    Searching for ancient DOS game: Grand Prix. No, not that one.

    So I found this cool little F1 management game to play in DOSBox. Year: 1989 Developer: Hole in the Wall Publisher: Wizard Games Shareware download: http://demu.org/resource-details/46 (So obscure it's not on MobyGames, but the publisher is) My problem: There are two versions...

    cant unmount SD CARDS

    I can't give you a sworn statement or anything. :-p But in the all the time I've been using a Pandora, rotating through about a dozen SD cards and inserting/removing them countless times, I've never once had an issue. I only take this relaxed attitude towards FAT formatted cards though. If I've...

    F1 Race Stars

    I haven't played anything remotely Mario Kart like since the N64. The last 'cute' racer I played was Joe Danger, and that lasted about an hour. I definitely don't like what they've done with the character models; they're fine as little cartoons, but for the most part they bear no resemblance at...
