Sims 2 on PC was my jam for the longest time. I had a ton of expansion packs for it and sunk so many hours into it, even made some custom shirts for my characters.

Sims 2 University is, for me, peak Sims. Even today, of I go back and play the game it is usually in the dorms and taking my teen sims through the world of college. Good times

Hardware and Tech / Re: Replacement UMD drive for PSP-2000?

I might look into that. I'm not without mechanical skills, but from what I read it's a pretty involved process to change the UMD drive out.

I guess it comes down to cost of a large enough memory card vs the drive. My current memory card is very tiny, as I only ever intended to use it for saves.

Hardware and Tech / Replacement UMD drive for PSP-2000?
« on: July 10, 2021, 12:55:29 pm »
Hey all, my PSP's UMD drive is making some God awful racket when ever it spins up to load. Has anyone had any experience with replacement drives or should I just look into finding another system?

Thanks in advance!

I just buy what looks interesting, and hope to one day play it. I used to have goals, such as a complete US Saturn collection but then I realized I don't care and it felt like I was buying filler for clout.

Eventually I even ended up selling off my Saturn collection, except for the original games I had as a kid.

Now a days the only "goal" I have, I guess would be keeping up on the Castlevania collection. Other than that, there's no end objective for my game collection.

Heck yeah, I remember walking everywhere with my 3DS in a pocket just for Streetpass

Right? Cata killed so much of the game for me. I went back for a couple later expansions, but the magic wasn't there anymore. Cata had one of my favorite moments tho, when I theory crafted  a way to out dps the popular fury spec as an arms warrior.

Wrath of the Lich King: The Wrathgate Cinematic

Oh yeaaaah Wrathgate was amazing, I wish you could still do the Battle of Undercity directly after it too. But, if Classic Burning Crusade is a hit, we should be getting a WotLK Classic eventually too. Gonna need to relive that if it does.

The only thing that I'll say is this. it's nice to play ds games on a bigger screen on a 3ds XL. but ye using a newer piece of hardware to play older games is not a great look I'd say.

I guess I never really looked at the 3DS as a  wholly new system, other than for catalog purposes, just a different hardware iteration. I always compared it to the difference between the Game Boy and the Color.

Sure it had its own games that were only usable, like on the Color, but it was still basically just a game boy (ds) with a color (3d) screen to me.

10 years. Wow. 

I was playing on mine not to long ago. I have to say, the DS/3DS has to be my favorite dedicated handheld.

Like others said, I kept 3D off, I tried to like it but it always messed with me. Plus I tend to hold my DS weird, so I was never in the proper viewing angle.

So many I can pick from, FF7 intro, and the death of Aerith both stand out. As does the opening cinematic of Diablo II and the intro and bait/switch in Persona 5.

But I think if I had to pick one, it would be the scene in Persona 3 when the PC shoots himself in the head for the first time to release his Persona. I remember that whole scene blowing my mind so hard I had to reload the game and play it again.

I also think I DM'd Desociatas and was like "wtf just happened?" Since I played the game on her recommendation.

I wish I still had Panzer Dragoon Saga. I had to sell it off years ago in order to keep afloat. Ended up selling Panzer Dragoon, Zwei and Saga as a bundle to pay some bills.

As for games I didn't have before. I would love a PCB of Haunted Castle. Always wanted to get my hands on one and frame it up in a shadow box.

Haha yeah, I wish I could experience that entire game again for the first time.

Onimusha: Warlords for the PS2 has one of my favorite opening pre-rendered cutscenes. Keeping in mind it was the year 2001, the CGI was unbelievable, and frankly I think still looks fantastic today. The beautiful symphonic score is what really does it for me though, it's too bad they changed the music for the PS3 remaster.

They did? That's a bummer. Glad I still have it for PS2 then.

General / If you could see 1 cutscene again for the first time, which?

I've talked about this subject before with friends, pertaining to films and thought it might be an interesting topic of conversation to drill down to a specific cutscene in a game.

If you could rewatch a single cutscene again as if it were the first time, which would it be?

I saw that Tony Hawk announcement. Held off on it, but might have to get it for Switch.

In other news I decided to search Brown Sauce for a laugh and found an old thread asking about what VGC was like when it was new (,9355.0.html ), didn't want to necro that thread. But def want to say thanks again for everyone who makes this place feel Alive. Feels good, man.
