    However, that Red vs. Blue is a good show. :)

    Whats wrong with people. You make a video (granted its old) that isn't true, look like an idiot, film it like crap, and use a standard apple invented. Its not even MPEG! Thats like me making a video about how PCs always crash and the only photo application is paint, dressing up like a monkey, and posting it in WMV. Way to go guys.

    On a slightly different but related topic, whatever happened to connectix VGS programme? Is that still around? I can think of at least 6 PSX games I would use it for... :cool:

    I thought it was hilarious as well. Not true, obviously - just look at all the hot Mac games that you can't play on a PC....

    Of course, I love WCIII, so I'm happy. And I've got an Xbox for when I need to do some serious gaming. Which I suck at. Which is why: (a) I don't turn on the Xbox much lately, and (b) I think Mac games are great.

    eBay or Flarestorm or PCSX.

    Buying CVGS would require you to boot into OS 9.

    Flarestorm is still in infant stages, basically. It runs a few games, a bit glitchy though.

    PCSX is still being ported, so just watch out for the release sometime soon.

    It's quite fun too see people not knowing the diffrents between a PC and a OS :)

    First time I've ever seen it— now what makes you say you "hope not" ?... Just curious why everyone should have seen it previously...

    It was getting a lot of attention in Mac news and also PC news. Also, the creators are the creators of the greatest online show I've ever seen, Red vs Blue.

    I know it's definately on Limewire, the name rings a bell when I was searching for freebie emulators last night. But booting into OS 9 would be a drag... and isn't VGS only the original Playstation (CD) discs?

    The emulator (CVGS) is not free (there is a demo that is free).

    It may be unavailable, but it is still protected by copyright.

    It can run back-ups, I think, or at least mine were personally burned by me and work fine.

    PCSX is a superior emulator anyway when it comes out. So just wait for it.

    There must be at least one descent emulator on Mac OS X that would work fine on say, a 1GHz PowerBook. Isnt there? I mean for Christ's sake, not even a CPS2 one?
