Would making it run at double speed solve the vblank issues? Or does it already do that anyway?

Canonical's pretty much done what you've described. Their new window server's called Mir, and it bundles an X compatibility layer.

This has the side-benefit of getting more games on Linux, which is always a good thing in my book. You won't have to run SteamOS to play them after all - just install the normal Steam on your existing Linux install.

I'm not too convinced over the feasibility of streaming games from a home computer though. This is why I have a Windows partition on my HTPC - purely so I can actually play 99% of the games that are out there.

FFXIII is the game for you, I guarantee you that you won't get lost.

Favorite post ever

The first I saw/played was the original Zelda I believe. It was mostly for my parents though. I didn't really start playing games until they picked up a SNES with Super Mario All Stars + World, and Link to the Past.

I'm a prince? :o

CoM and Days are definitely essential. They're integral to the plot and elements from 2 build heavily on both games. You don't need to play Days, just watch the cutscenes, but CoM is something you shouldn't skip.

All are essential in some parts, if I were you I'd get 1.5 - that gives you a good primer for pre-KH2 canon. Follow up with KH2 then BBS, and that'll have you caught up.

If you want to play the originals instead of the HD versions - do KH1, Re: CoM, Re:Coded and skip 358/2, better off just watching the cutscenes on youtube for that one.

Have you tried viewing it in 1BPP mode?

Has anyone actually used an EyeToy regularly? Mine has been gathering dust for 5 years, can't say I'll miss it not being bundled with the PS4.

Guess I'm SOL then. Good thing I'm on CFW and have no reason to upgrade for the next half a year when games stop getting signed for 3.41 ;)

There's still room in the world for programmers who don't know OO, mainly in the areas of very low level programming - embedded devices, etc. But OO's an extremely important thing to learn if you want to expand outside of these areas.

Most applications out there these days use OO in at least some form, so I think it would be worth your while to learn about it properly regardless of if you like it or not. I hated C++ a year ago, now it's one of my favourite languages exactly because I stopped hating it long enough to give it a shot.

Microsoft has a good one - rapidly insert and remove a memory card unit from a 360 whilst a game is running. Apparently they do this when testing games before they get put on the marketplace

Check what's using your CPU whilst your internet is active, if there's no processes consuming CPU then it'll most likely be a dodgy driver/service instead. Process Explorer helps with diagnosing issues like this

instead of the game ceasing to be a game, and instead turning into drawn out movie scenes like MGS does it.

I like my MGS moviegames :(

I never pay attention to mainstream games. Shooters and sports games really aren't my thing.

I generally exclusively play adventure games these days, other than that the only games I play are from series I follow, like MGS.
