  • Re: Absolute Question and Answer Thread v.3 (ASK YOUR QUESTIONS HERE!)

    Anybody know of any diagrams for making a PS360+ to NES cable? Preferably RJ45 to NES, but USB to NES will do if that's all there is.

    Games I've spent the most time with:
    -Call of Duty 4. This has probably taken up the absolute MOST of my time, bar none.
    -Mortal Kombat 9. Close second. When it was hot, there was no other game I played as much. I honed my Ermac into something straight out of nightmares.
    -Metal Gear Online. The very FIRST one that came with MGS3:Subsistence. THAT one was good, and got me into online games to start with. The other two (the ones that came with MGS4 and MGS5, respectively) are garbage.

    The MGO that came with MGS5 is actually the 6th iteration of MGO.
    You think they would have it fix by now

    What makes it worse is that even when corrected, he contends that I’m not correct.

    What amazes me is that with all of the arcade-focused stuff he’s posted, he hasn’t read Slagcoin.
    Sadly, this kind of silly ignorance is rife within the retro-gaming community. Hopefully ETA PRIME digests Slagcoin’s information.

    Looking at the guy's channel, he not what I call a core retro gamer at all.
    Lot of Retro Pi and Emulation stuff, thats all surface/beginner level stuff.

    need to dig up the gun control thread we had here in GD. It was actually really good and an SRKer made a good post talking about some of the issues surrounding some of the bans.

    either way, not really sure why the AR is used in a lot of things, probably because the name is popular. You can change the stock of the rifle from plastic to wood and people will find it to be less scary; same caliber weapon, same magazine size, one is somehow seen as more dangerous than the other.

    Its why I hate the term assault weapon, its a oxymoron and it shifts blame off the issue and muddle the issue.

    And Pertho is right, change the stock, hand grips and a few minor details and a AR looks like a old fashion hunting rifle.

    Also I am often floored how stubborn people are when it comes to explaining what Semi-auto really means.
    A semi-automatic firearm, a firearm which automatically reloads, but will only fire one round per trigger pull
    Semi-auto don't mean automatic, or 3 round burst. It means the gun ejects the spent casting, re-cocks the firing mechanism, loads and chambers the next round automatically instead of manually operating the bolt of a rifle to do the same process. Semi Automatics does not mean rapid fire.

    Yes this makes it physically easier for a shooter to take the next shot but at the same time once loaded the only parts of the gun that can move is the trigger, hammer and firing pin.
    Depending on the model of the rifle, it takes a considerable amount of strength to operate a manual rifle bolt.

    In many ways semi-automatics are safer:
    it's easier to maintain muzzle control
    Most Semi-automatics has a safety setting, while set on safe the gun can not fire, even when loaded.

    Most Gun deaths are not from mass shooting but accidental due to negligence or lack of proper training.
