I'm the same way now... :/
But are they still going to make PowerBook executables for much longer?
Well, as far as I understand (and I'm still a very big newbie when it comes to the Mac world), the main type of executable is a "universal binary" which covers PPC and Intel. However, with the introduction of Leopard they stopped supporting anything before a G4 processor (as in PPC)... with whatever new OS X build comes out, I would imagine there's a good possibility they might drop G4s. Can't be sure, but I'd like to hope not.
IT for my bloody tv! In which paid, nearly 75% off the da bloody cord so the price was a steal for me, now that we got the amazing price issue out the way......
So, you only paid $6,234,623 instead?
Just get an Intel Mac, and get on with the times. Less hassle with software too.
I'm actually not too worried about that... Firefox, iChat, Colloquy, BitRocket, GarageBand, iTunes, and QuickTime are all I really need. I don't really do anything on computers like I used to... not much of a power user these days.
Which of you are Mac users? What model/specs?
I've got a crappy little iBook besides my main PC. It's a white Dual USB G3... 700 MHz, 256 MB, 20 GB, Tiger. I'm looking to buy a better iBook or PowerBook in the near future once my PC is fixed. Going to sell it off and just go Mac + mobile.
For running backups on a Sega Saturn console, you need a modchip.
Half correct. You can also use the swap method (which I use).
My girlfriend is apparently going to buy me an Xbox 360 for my birthday and GTA IV (yes, I know -- gnarley). Anyway, I'm wondering which model is impervious to RRoDs or at least less likely to crap out on me. Keep in mind, I'm also trying to go for the cheapest solution.
P.S.: The birthday isn't for a month+... are there any new models I should wait for?
I was reading this article saying that the Sega Saturn has some of the best shmups out there.
batsugun, radiant silvergun, battle garegga, strikers 1945, strikers 1945 ii, dodonpachi, etc.
This game was THE reason I bought a Dreamcast.
Great review and DEFINITELY deserves an A. Good job.
i date a woman who smokes and i give her s*** about it every time she lights one up... she's starting to smoke less and less because she's starting to feel bad about it.
sometimes being a d*** about things helps.
i just played this for the first time (pc port) like a year or two ago. i got a mk torrent and tried it out... not too bad, but overall it just feels clunky.
Dreamcast, Gamecube, or Xbox Live?ikaruga
dreamcast, of course!

there was one battle in pokemon diamond that was unfairly difficult iirc
it's obviously Street fighter II. take you pick which version.
I could only play that game for hours if it was against friends or arcade vs someone else. I didn't think it was good enough or entertaining enough for single player.
Quoting for truthiness... and Turbo is the best.
Looks something like an old avatar of his.
Did Sonic really wear sneakers? I haven't looked too closely...

That's all I can think of right now because I'm retarded.
You should just use my guide: The Modern Guide to Sega Dreamcast Disc Burning.
It's based off Shibathedog's information as well as other information I've collected around the Internet. It's the easiest guide, by far.
Yes, that is correct. But there's no telling if the "emulator" packed in with the ROM is only set for NTSC or PAL games as well... I guess we'll find out in the coming weeks (days?).
I don't think you understand what I'm trying to say.
I do now, and you're right. My bad.
But the rom has that info not the other files right.

They dropped G3 because all of them were less than 867 MHz (this is the base G4 speed)... and lacked some certain graphics chip or something like that (which Leopard needs). It wasn't really about the PPC architecture getting dropped as it was other parts of the G3s. I don't really see them dropping G4s, it was just hypothetical/speculation.
