But again, if they're both headed to a landfill...

One takes a few less centuries to decompose. So. Seems like a forward thinking idea. I'd rather gimmicky crap like this WERE cardboard.

Too hot to last. You can find 'em for around $45 used on eBay. Though the last one I bought at that price they stuck it in a small priority box that wasn't big enough for the analog sticks, but they shoved it in anyways and sealed up the box. Luckily other than one of the motors for vibration being a bit rattly there wasn't any real damage.

I didn't get curious until it was already meme status, which drove up the price to ...a lot.

I think there's a high chance this ends up being shovelware destined for the trash heap in the sky regardless, but I'd much rather it was out of a compostable material if that's its destiny (and let's be honest, it is, even if it's wildly successful). We've got enough cheap plastic pieces of crap flooding the bins as it is with the Switch. And with all the moving parts, much less chance of accidental injury with cardboard versus pinchy plastic pieces. Like, looking at the internals of these, plastic really doesn't make much sense. That's not construction, it's not even very customizable, that's assembly and it sounds really boring.

And this would have been much, much, much, much, much more expensive than it is if it were plastic. THAT would have been a waste.

I'll be sure to let you know. Not even going to attempt before I get my Intel build finished up. If I have problems on an $1800 rig, PS3 emulation can fudge right off.

Somehow I lucked out and this released in a period where my folks weren't into buying portables. I didn't get my first Gameboy until the GB Pocket released, that was the first and only portable I ever got before the Gameboy SP. Lucky me, it was super!

I wish there was a source to lay out exactly what was agreed upon, most sites are just like "Funding for 3 weeks", and I don't give a crap about 3 weeks. I wanna know what else was thrown on.

Also, according to Vox Democrats voted against it in part because of no action on CHIP so that may have been added within the past 4 days. Not sure. Either way, Dems took a hit by caving without DACA on the table. We'll have to see how that pans out.

It also looks like Trump stayed away from the table, so this was largely the grown-ups sitting down and having frank discussions. He couldn't personally be responsible for dealing with DACA since his base doesn't want him to, even though he does, seems to be a paralyzing subject for him when he's like "Surely you guys DON'T REALLY want to deport a bunch of kids here to have a life, who had no choice in coming or not" and he hears crickets. I feel for him on that. He's not wrong.

But man, he was really Tweeting up a storm throwing around blame, wasn't he

Ah, someone had a succinct tweet about this:

"So as I understand it, Dems gave Trump 3 weeks in return for promise of a vote on DACA; also got 6 years of CHIP funding. I understand the concerns of immigration activists, but this doesn't sound like a surrender, unless I'm missing something"

I don't know why they gave a fudge anyways. What else was tied to this that Republicans had inserted? Was there no quid pro quo and that's why Democrats held up their middle finger? Because obstructing simply because of no DACA resolution is retarded and makes them look retarded, unless Republicans tied a bunch of crap to the measure and said "Period".

I don't think there's been a Nintendo system yet where I've bought it and been like "You know what, no, this system is crap". Not a one. I've gotten my moneys' worth on every single system, and usually then some. Not everything's perfect, but not everything's for me. At least I didn't buy a PS3 and have to wait 3 years for any games worth either a crap or a fudge started getting pushed out. Now that system ended fantastically well but I feel like people give MS (zippity doo dah for a year plus) and Sony an awful wide berth, but get super cynical critical hater whenever Nintendo's name is uttered, which slightly bewilders me. Especially when they continually fix the problems people are calling out ("They don't sell any violent games! The Wii remote sucks! The Wii U gamepad sucks!"), there's aaaaaalways something, just something.

It's hard to say P5 was my GOTY, but it was certainly at least #2. I never see it coming.

It was so good, I bought the system to play it, specifically to play it, and then sold the system soon as I finished it 92 or whatever hours later. I'd literally kill for a PC port.

When it's finished:

Intel i5 8600K (6 cores, OC to 4.8GHz with z370 Aorus Gaming 7, hopefully!)
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080
16GB DDR4 3200-3900mhz, depending on what brand I settle on (whichever one fudges me least in the wallet)

Likely not the way you're thinking. The hardware's spoofing other hardware operations probably though FPGA; at a base hardware level, your PC Engine's still doing all the heavy lifting, it's just that the instructions the PCE is receiving from the SSD is synthesized instead of being, you know, real. Bottom line, if we're picturing PCE emulation on a PC, and this optical drive replacement, they're doing two very different things in very different ways. This thing isn't so much "emulating" a disc drive as it is replacing it. It's probably streaming data to the PCE imperceptibly similarly to actual hardware, with all the benefits of not having to read from an actual optical drive, so you get fun stuff like decreased or eliminated load delays.
