I found another early pic.... a little later than my first post of 1986, this was about 1988. If you look you can see an Acorn Electron , the BBC Micro's "younger brother". It was on this little guy i spent hours playing the classic space trading 'n' shooting game Elite . http://img219.imageshack.us...

I have the X-Arcade Two Player Joystick and an adapter for the original Xbox and Dreamcast. It's a great Jostick, and the adapters work well. The company that make the X-Arcade stuff will hopefully bring out an adapter for the Xbox 360. Their site states.......... "Xbox 360™ Adapter Availability. We...

Controls for Xbox 360?

I was wondering if there's going to be an option on the 360 for a keyboard and mouse? I know that it's a console, and consoles traditionally use pads for playing with...... but i have a keyboard and mouse for my Dreamcast. I don't mind that much as i'm used to a game pad now..... but the keyboard an...

.......... In fact, here's a still image from the shot i was talking about...... this is the CG baby. You have to see it moving in the shot to notice if it looks real or not but this gives you an idea....... The CG baby was in a few other shots too, but this was the main one. http://img201.imageshac...

I work for the company that did some of the VFX for this movie....... remember the scene where she gives birth? They used an animatronic baby when they shot the scene on set but that didn't look too good, so it was replaced by a CG baby. I thought it was nice as it was not "in your face" FX like a l...

Half Life 2 Xbox 360

I just picked up Half life 2 for my Xbox, but have now heard that it's going to be released for the 360 with extras ....... I'm absolutely dying to play it, but i guess i should resist playing it on my normal Xbox and pick it up for the 360 when it comes out (and when i get a 360 myself, soon)....an...

It's action packed for sure. I've only spent an afternoon playing it so far, but if it's short i don't mind. I'd rather play through some cool intense action through a short game rather than have a long game padded out with chit chat...... Metal Gear Solid for example. I gave up on that series....30...

Itunes help please

I just installed the latest version of Itunes on my Mac, but can't seem to get a similar layout to the old version where you had 2 main sections. In the old version the top would be Artist, then Album, with the songs listed below. If you highlited an artist for example it would only show their songs...
