• Sony PSP 2001 Will Not Connect To My Wifi Connection With WPA1 Security And WLAN Switch Turned On. Receive error message during test?

    I purchased a Star Wars Battlefront Edition PSP 2001 with the Darth Vader Symbol on the battery cover at a specialty store today. The unit powers on, plays games and movies, and basically functions normally except establishing a wireless network connection to my modem / router. My internet provider is Xfinity / Comcast. Originally my Connection was set to WPA2 as the Security Type. I have the WLAN Switch turned on and I followed the instructions from recent online videos (2016 and later) and went to the Gateway Settings Page to change my Security Setting from WPA2 to WPA1 so the PSP could recognize the connection. It does, however I'm still getting an error message after the connection is established and I try testing the connection stating. "A connection error has occurred. A connection to the access point could not be established. Check the security settings for the network and try again." I've already troubleshooted all of this and I still can't connect my PSP to my Wifi Connection. Why is this still happening? Did Sony shut down the PSP Servers for good or something?

  • Is the Playstation 3 Super Slim 12GB capable of installing and playing 5 physical disc-based games if that's all I'm using it for?

I realize that it's only 12GB but seeing that I knew beforehand that I only wanted to install and play 5 disc-based games and maybe watch some Blu-Rays, I thought it would be sufficient for my needs. I just want to know for sure, is it a HDD Drive or a Flash Drive on this thing because I've read that it uses Flash Drive Space as opposed to a Hard Disc? Secondly, Will I be able to install and play the only 5 games I'm buying it for? These games are Gran Turismo 5, Little Big Planet Karting, Modnation Racers, Uncharted 2, and Uncharted 3. I may also be interested in The Last of Us and Gran Turismo 6 in the future but that would be the absolute max I would use it for and those would be physical copies as well. I just want to know if my instincts were right or wrong and how good my decision was. Thanks

  • Why were "most" video games almost unplayable before the PlayStation era? How could gamers tolerate this?

    I managed to get a SNES Classic Edition and eventually modded it to add more of my personal favorites like Donkey Kong Country 2 and Super Mario All-Stars.

    I managed to get a SNES Classic Edition and eventually modded it to add more of my personal favorites like Donkey Kong Country 2 and Super Mario All-Stars. The SNES was the first system I owned as a kid and I remember it fondly but only for the iconic games like DKC and Super Mario World. Through modding the system and adding over 150 games and testing out the majority of them I realized that with the exception of the renowned games like Mario (including Mario Kart), Sonic, DKC, Kirby, The Legend of Zelda, and perhaps Killer Instinct, NBA Jam, and Mortal Kombat, the majority of games made before 1995 or the 5th Generation of video games are almost completely unplayable. Almost every lesser known game I played has the same type of hack and slash 2D mechanic. Either inaccurately jump on or over enemies, avoid enemies, or shoot things at them with flimsy 2D controls. Role-Playing games like Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger are an exception because they're slow and turn-based. The games that are worst effected by the poor 2D mechanics are games based on movies and pop culture characters which was common in the late 80's and early 90's. These games have terrible control and are extremely repetitive. The problem with the PS1, N64, and Sega Saturn wasn't that the games were unplayable but the 3D graphics were horrendous. They should've waited until the Dreamcast to incorporate 3D. My question is how did gamers tolerate such a small variety of decent games back in the day?

Kirby's Dream Land 3 (Underrated latecomer in 1997, just as good as Kirby's Super Star) 7. Tetris Attack (Best Tetris theme and gameplay of the era, hands down)

  • Do you agree that Grand Theft Auto 6 should take place in Vice City?

    As one of the main cities, aside from San Fierro and Las Venturas, it has been the longest amount of time since Vice City was featured in a GTA game and it deserves the HD treatment more than any of the other cities before they move on to newer ones.

    As one of the main cities, aside from San Fierro and Las Venturas, it has been the longest amount of time since Vice City was featured in a GTA game and it deserves the HD treatment more than any of the other cities before they move on to newer ones. With today's technology, Vice City would not only be larger and more detailed but they could include the entire state of Florida in the game from Orlando to Daytona Beach and The Everglades to name a few additional locations. If the game were a direct sequel to the original Vice City and took place in the late 80's, that would be awesome. But it could also take place in the present day with no direct connection to the original VIce City (like GTA V with GTA San Andreas) with a strong emphasis on 80's culture because it's still such a prominent thing in Miami and South Florida. i.e., they could bring back most of the original DJs from Vice City and have a station completely devoted to 80's music but set in the present day like Vice City Radio in the GTA IV expansions, Episodes From Liberty City. Does anyone agree with this concept for the next GTA game?

    All I've heard is that winters were bitterly cold until most recently circa 1840. The Industrial Revolution was infantile then and had significantly less impact than industry does today and the earth already began showing patterns of natural warming. Another part of information I was told was that 18th century almanacs reported that the earth's climate was so warm overall between the 7th and 9th centuries AD that England competed with France in wine production. There were no possible man-made emissions at this point and the earth was reported to be drastically warmer than it is now. What other evidence is there that climate cycles are simply the earth "doing it's own thing" and that the global warming craze is simply a man-made political scam intended to try and force people to develop fake empathy and purchase gimmicky "clean air" products?

The only new ones I can find are either a rip off or that 2nd Super Slim version with the manual loading disc tray which I really don't want. I want the 1st Slim Model with the automatic loading disc tray and the subjectively nicer design. There are many of these refurbished on the Gamestop website, some come packaged with several new games called "Blast From the Past" Bundles. I'm almost fully decided on one of these but I'm willing to accept any warnings or advice before purchasing. I just want to know what type of quality and functionality I can expect when getting what is seemingly a great deal like this from Gamestop. Also, what are the best PS3 exclusives besides God of War, Uncharted, and an awesome Blu-ray player which is primarily what I'm buying one for at this point in time? Thanks

    First off, I just want to state that I don't care if you think what the woman did was wrong, I just want to hear your knowledge on why I ultimately forgot what she told me that day. So I went to elementary school with this girl I had a crush on who suddenly vanished after a nasty divorce with no trace when we were 9. Three years later when I was 12 her mother came back looking for help and her and I crossed paths. She proceeded to tell me that her ex-husband became a cheating homosexual prostitute and that she found him running a sex business in their apartment and having orgys with multiple men in her bedroom. She told me that her daughter was destroyed by the father (although she still adored him and grew to hate the mother) and was becoming a trashy whore in her new town and giving herself away to bad influences. The last thing the mother told me was that herself and I were among the 1st human beings to experience and evolutionary process that will soon effect the entire human race in a few hundred years. Before we parted ways she warned me that I would quickly forget what she shared with me due to my young age and that I'd probably remember again as an adult. That's exactly what happened as I gradually forgot everything over the course of a few months, remembered at times as a teenager when I was reminded of it, and then ultimately remembered everything as an adult when I was 21.
