Actually, I think I have two, which is Dark Cloud and ICO for PS2, and that's it.
Though I have the double pack of ICO and Shadow of the Colossus, so I don't really need my PS2 anyway.

My PS2 crapped itself awhile ago, and I never really bothered to get a new one. My older brother took most of the games after it dide anyway xD


We also don't have NetFlix in AUS, or CinemaNow, so it's all but useless for me, when pretty much every game I have on PS3 I have on my PC already.


If anything I think my PC is better anyway, because it does have the 3D BluRays available to play on it.
My mum bought me a 3D BluRay (The Hobbit) and it didn't even allow me to get to the menu to watch the normal version instead of the 3D, when I used my PS3 for it. Just rejected it straight away.

My ps3 is basically for BluRays as well! LOL.
Though my new laptop also plays BluRays (and 3D movies), so now it's even being shunned aside for my laptop.

I've been considering selling my ps3 actually.. It just builds up dust at the moment :o

Sad PS3 didn't use 1080p more.
I think I've only played about 2 games on my ps3 that allow 1080p (Which I believe was Final Fantasy 13. It was gorgeous)

On ps3, I played Last of Us on 1080i, and it looked alright to me.

Like I said, not a bad game at all, and it really did hurt your heart to play it, but the enemies got boring. They didn't seem to have much diversity after awhile, and I also found it easy to kill everything about halfway through the game as well owo;

It just felt like it had been done before.

I also feel as if it really needs no remaster O.o

Yeah, I guess that even though the Thinkpad won in my comparison, I guess he didn't like that I called his comparison a weak one, and the fact I gave Apple like two measly points in it. 
I don't mind if you dislike that or dislike that, but I can't stand people being over the top irrational. >.>

New to me of course. :P

The Lenovo Thinkpad T420s, Sandybridge architecture and the last series they did before going chiclt. 

This thing has a 2.6Ghz Dual core hyperthreaded Core i5 

4gb of DDR3 RAM, upgrading it to 8gb ASAP. 

Came with a 320gb HDD, I swapped it out for my 128gb SSD, will be putting the 320gb HDD into a CD drive bay adapter. 

14" screen at 1600x900

And OpenSUSE took the hardware change extremely well.

Nice! Glad you got a card that works out for you! Should last you for a good while. :)

Actually, last I looked a few of the Lenovo machines still have an option for Windows 7.

IDK about "Made it better"... lol! More like fkd it up. Their original OS's 4 thru 9 were better in my opinion. All they needed was to put some stability in it.

No never saw the movie. 

I saw an interview on youtube with Steve Wozniac about how the Steve Jobs movie is way off too. But then that's to be expected from Apple zealots.

As for the hardware of consoles, my primary choice for a console is most likely going to be the Wii U or the 3DS if it were to be a handheld. Mostly for those Nintendo/Nintendo exclusive franchises. Granted, I grew up on Nintendo and then moved over to the PC, so I guess that would explain my stances on this. 

I also tend to take an interest in computer hardware, software, etc. over gaming. And thus it turned out most of my friends ended up being PC gamers. 

Another aspect I take into account is when I upgrade my hardware. My CPU/Mobo combo every 3-4 years, my GPU every 2 years, and I don't even spend more than maybe $160 on my GPU. At this point most of the other components are just along for the ride. :P 

My decision is also based on the fact I almost never pay full price for games. Steam sales are absolutely amazing to take advantage of. 

At 12:38pm on December 26, 2013, Tyler Brown said…

*shrugs* Whatever works for you. 

Honestly, most of my friends play on Steam, which is a PC gaming platform, and the Steambox is going to be just that, a Console that is a PC. If Valve can be successful with the Steambox I feel it would really bridge that gap between PC and console gaming. Plus, if I got a Steambox I wouldn't have to purchase an entirely new set of games. :P

If it were pre-APU, I would agree with you, however, since AMD's started pushing out the APU's they have been looking extremely attractive in laptops, and they don't run nearly as hot as the old AMD CPUs used to. 

At 8:59pm on December 18, 2013, Tyler Brown said…

I think I may have found what I want for my next laptop:

http://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops/thinkpad/e-series/e545/ 

It's a Thinkpad, it has a Thinkpad keyboard and nipple, while also including an AMD APU. That is extremely tempting.
