5.0 out of 5 stars Go back in time with these arcade classics, April 23, 2011

This review is from: Namco's Museum Vol. 3 (Video Game)
The third entry in the best selling Namco Museum anthology for the original PlayStation contains six classic arcade games from the late 70s/early 80s. In "Galaxian", the goal is to shoot down enemy spaceships and avoid their kamikaze attacks and bombs. "Dig Dug" is a cool game where you dig underground to get rid of enemies by pumping them full of air like a balloon until they pop. Beware of the fire breathing Fygar! "Ms. Pac Man" is an addicting maze game where you gobble up energy dots while avoiding those pesky ghosts. There are three other classic games that you'll enjoy as well. Older gamers will enjoy the nostalgia while today's gamers can appreciate the games that were state-of-the-art for its time. The games are emulated perfectly, and there are extra features such as the Museum, the ability to customize each game's settings such as difficulty level, amount of lives you get, etc. You can also play back the music and sound FX of these classic games. The game uses only one block on a memory card to save high scores and custom settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome, yet challenging, skateboarding game., April 23, 2011

This review is from: Skate - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
"Skate" is EA's entry into action sports games. The game is far different than the Tony Hawk games because of its innovative FlickIt control system. If you haven't played this game before, FlickIt is a simplified control system that utilizes both analog thumbsticks. You use one thumbstick to control the direction your skater is heading, and the other is used to perform tricks. No more frequent button mashing combos to memorize. However, it may take you a while to get used to using the thumbsticks, so before you start a career, you should go through the Tutorial first. You'll learn how to use the thumbsticks to move your character and perform tricks. You use two of the buttons on your controller to push your character to gain speed. Once you've finished the Tutorial, go to Free Skate mode and try out what you've learned. Once you've got used to the FlickIt system, start your Career and own the streets and skate parks. The graphics are incredible, almost life-like and the soundtrack is good. Xbox 360 users can use custom soundtracks if they wish. My only complaint is that they could have made the FlickIt system a little easier to master. If you're into skateboarding and are looking for a challenging game and an alternative to the Tony Hawk franchise, then this game is perfect for you.

HDE Rechargeable Controller Battery Pack for XBOX 360 - 3600mAH

5.0 out of 5 stars A great battery for a great price!, March 31, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars

The rechargeable battery I received looked just like the one pictured except the one I got was a Polaroid brand. The charging cable is extra long and I was able to use the controller while the charging cable was hooked up to one of the front USB ports of my Xbox 360 S while sitting four feet away from it. I gave the battery its first full charge the day I got it which was last Saturday (the 26th of March) and its now Thursday (the 31st of March) and the battery meter in the Dashboard is still full even with several hours of heavy use with vibration on each day. I strongly encourage you to not just get one but get several because at this price, it's a steal.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent look at technology in the early 90s, January 13, 2011

This review is from: The Cyberspace Lexicon (Paperback)
"The Cyberspace Lexicon" was a hybrid encyclopedia/dictionary published in 1994. Though outdated today, it still serves as a look back into what state-of-the-art technology was like in the early 90s. There is a lot of emphasis on "hypermedia", "CD-ROM", and CD-based video game systems. There is also a good entry on "cyberpunk" and "anime", along with an early mention of HDTV. You'll get a kick out of the entry on "cybersex". All in all, it is a good read if you're into the history of computer technology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoy high quality video on your PS2 or PS3 for a low price!, January 5, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars

This component A/V cable allows you to enjoy high-quality picture on your TV. When you plug in this cable and turn on your PS2 or PS3, you will immediately notice a difference in picture quality. Graphics are sharper and text is clearer. If you decide to get this cable, do keep these things in mind:

1) Make sure your component video-ready TV has Y/Cb/Cr inputs. According to other reviewers, Y/Pb/Pr video is not possible.

2) If you have a Sony TV with component inputs, you should have no problems.

I used my cable on my PS2 connected to a 24" Dynex digital-ready TV which had Y/Cb/Cr component inputs. Picture quality was greatly enhanced. I could use any video mode, but choosing a mode other than fullscreen would shrink the picture down to a letterbox format.

The price for this generic component video cable is affordable. Some vendors sell it for as little as $1.99 before shipping. You get the same quality that you would with Sony's official cable which can cost you over $30.

5.0 out of 5 stars This controller breathes new life into the PS2, December 31, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After my original controller quit working, I went on Amazon looking for a replacement. I didn't have much money to spend, so I was fortunate to find a vendor that was selling this controller for just under $7 after shipping. The motion sensing abilities and the programmable macro button were neat, as well as the controller's translucent royal blue color and black rubberized handle grips. Though it is smaller in size when compared to Sony's Dualshock 2, I had no problems with it or the smaller buttons on it because my hands aren't that big and my fingers are rather skinny. The motion sensing function turns on by default when you power on your PS2, but you can disable the feature by simply pressing the Analog mode button. The controller comes with an instructional booklet that is well written and illustrated, and it shows you how to adjust the sensitivity of the motion sensors and to use the macro feature. I tested the motion sensing function on "Grand Theft Auto Vice City" and found that it works well when you're driving, but a little awkward when you are walking or running. On "Tony Hawk's American Wasteland", it was easier to navigate the character, regardless of whether he was on a board, a bike, or his feet. On "Madden NFL 10", it gave me better control of the player when he's running. And on "Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec", it allowed me to handle turns and sharp curves much better than using the D-pad or the analog thumbstick. I only have one complaint about this controller: the cord is short. Be prepared to move your system closer to you if you play your games from across the room. Other than that, it is an excellent buy and extremely affordable. More importantly, it adds an entirely new dimension to the PS2, which is nearing its 12th year in existence. Finally, you can have something on your PS2 that brings new life and better control to the games you play on it. I give it 9˝ out of 10.
