Winamp is amazing and very well put together, so she is entitled to his opinion. (she to his?? Hmm..)

Yeah go and find a modchip for your Saturn. You can't find WHDLoad games and you will find a modchip ooookay.

I do like Winamp but the VLM is eons ahead.

Fred, your family is in any way related to Steve Jobbs?

Actually, no, but My mom's bf wrote the first PC user manual in 1980. The hunk of shit had no OS or manual.
Thats when he saw the Apple ][ ....'nuff said. He also met Steve Jobs at a developers meeting in 1989 whn Next Step was being produced. That OS is still incredible, doing things Windoze prays it could.

Sam. All Tramiels are evil!

Plus, Trip was a huge Amiga supporter, while Sam ('s dad?) merely stole Amiga plans...

Well my hatred for the Tramiels knows no bounds....slimy scum.
My dislike of Hawkins is not so much personality, but his poor marketing technique regarding in my opinion, what could have been the "Amiga" of consoles, the illustrious and lamented 3DO. Damn them all to hell, there ain't even an emulator for it yet
Or The Jaguar.
Or the Saturn. I know, Akira, Buy one. I will...the Saturrn will be mine

Yeah, I was also very disappointed in the dismal sales of the 3DO. It sure seemed like it was being hyped up very well initially. I wrote many articles in our Amiga group's newletters and such where I stuck my neck out and said this was going to be the machine that would make a real impact. Of course, I was very wrong.

And whatever happened to the Philips CD-i, which was supposed to be the 3DO's big competitor? No emulator for it yet, either I take it?

I think that there is indeed a CD-i emu....let me confirm this first.
burn Cycle, a cyber punk adventure, I think was considered its best game.
But the latter generation consoles are so difficult to emulate.

Here's a link for a Saturn emulator - I've no idea if it works.

It works as fast as a wounded snail :P

Nothing Beats the Real Thing!

The 3D0 looked posh, but it seems it was a bit overhyped. Dunno to what extent, since Amiga people took part on it.

Tramiel is a bastard :P

Thanks for the link, Birdy ol' chap! Alas, Akira, for the first time since he admitted that his avatar was gay, is correct.
The real thang'll have to do. That's why I have enlisted you to beat up Kraig to take his Saturn away from him. The poor console is gathering dust!!
Thanks my freind!
BTW, if you do not know what Kraig looks like, he is a 6'3 Sam Tramiel. Ugh.

Just use eBay, you 2 pence hooker.

Next week I'm modding my Saturn with a country switch, so I can play imports effortlessly!

My friend modded his Saturn (or something). I don't really pay attention, but I'm pretty sure he's done this

I have no idea what he chipmodded it to do

He can play CD-Rs, so that's probably it
He also plays imports

Oh well. I don't care really. I'm not a console person

Yep that's a CDR chipmod. PERHAPS he also added a country switch but I doubt it, with CDRs, you can hack teh games before you burn them so they match your Saturn's country.

Also, he might have an Action Replay cartridge.. did he have a white cart atop the Sat?
