  1. Does anyone else collect PSP movies?  I'm up to 51 of them, with these 11 being my latest pickup.

      Absolutely better.  Good resolution and you get the full 2+ hour movie.  On the downside, there is no novelty "Rick Roll" movie on PSP (that I know of).

      Cool, you grabbed Michael T's bundle 👍 The price was great, and I was tempted because of some of the movies in the bundle, but I didn't want to go down the rabbit hole of UMD movie collecting. I already have my hands full with blu-ray, DVD etc.

      PSP really was an entertainment powerhouse, but for whatever reason, Sony handhelds never remotely come near the success of Nintendo handhelds.

      Yes.  I'm actually shocked no one else grabbed that bundle! 

      I have a pretty nice PSP collection.  The PSP is a lot more advanced than the Nintendo DS.  Yet I still love the DS more.  Why?  Probably because the library is more accessible and large. 

      I normally take the PSP with me on plane trips with a few movies to watch.  But this last time, since we hadn't flown in so long, I just minimized.  Our plane ended up having a pretty good selection on seatback screens, so I just watched a bunch of TV shows and was happy.  I started to watch that movie "The Joker", but it was so depressing, I turned it off. 

       

       

       

  2. That's probably something good to try. It may be that many others are having the same issue as you, and a future driver release will fix the issue. But for now, it seems wise to try reverting back to old drivers to see if that helps. At least then you'll know "it's the drivers".
  3. I remember this, and I still will not purchase anything from this manufacturer (no, I won't name them). Remember when Keurig tried to do this same thing with their next-gen coffee maker/pods?
  4. It honestly looks like it could have been taken in the Arizona desert.
  5. Boy that is weird. I can't say I've ever heard of that. You mentioned earlier you have Speedstep disabled for your CPU? I wonder if you enable speedstep if the video card issue will go away. Or at least you'd save some power during idle times.
  6. An opinion from someone you know and trust is worth a LOT! I would agree that the power of the machine has no bearing, so long as the content and ease-of-use are good. I'll keep my eye out for one, although I have no idea what the costs are. Thanks!
  7. If it were me, I'd write him a short e-mail asking if he sells such a thing. I'm pretty sure the only time you'll get in trouble with Best is if you behave poorly or make unreasonable demands. Asking questions like "do you sell <specific item>? I wasn't able to find it on your web site" should be fine.
  8. This looks like a huge improvement over the SMB Game & Watch from last year (which was pretty awesome) because it includes 4 games. Wow! I definitely want one of these.
  9. I got nothing. The only PC programs I've used for TI is emulators. None of which was very satisfying. I should probably try again, as it's been a while.
  10. Hey, I may sell mine (as well as Conquest of the World). If your dad is interested, make me an offer. I'd love to see it go to someone who will enjoy it.
  11. It's a quick summary of the history of the 99/4A and it's impact on the marketplace. The most fascinating part for me is the mention of another cause of the great video game crash of 83, one that rarely gets mentioned: "the Commodore/Atari/TI home computer price war destroyed the sub-$1,000 home computer market and tanked the video game industry with it," https://www.howtogeek.com/731558/a-successful-failure-the-ti-994a-turns-40/
  12. Quest for the Rings has my favorite retro box-art of all time. The box, the board, the packaging is an A+ IMO. But the game? Ugh. I'm sorry to say it's just a mess to me. I appreciate the effort, but I think they got way over their skis on this one. Magnavox made a total of three of these big-box board games. All of them are highly collectible.
