Morning Squidussion

By Alice O'Connor, Jun 24, 2009 7:00am PDT

Video games face terrible pressure from the anti-teuthida pressure groups and lobbyists to cast out squid, and often even cephalopods altogether. We know this for a fact. Thankfully Squid Yes, Not So Octopus: Squid Harder is brave enough to call them out. A glorious arcade arena shooter, SY,NSO:SH boldly strikes a blow for our betentacled brethren and insists with bright lights and loud noises that we pay squid the attention and respect they deserve. Remember: only you can prevent Squidageddon.

  • I absolutely can not decide what I'd really need in a laptop. All I know is that my Powerbook G4 1.33ghz is totally not going to do anymore.

    I've been really happy with the screensize of the old 12" powerbook and I'm a little bummed to see that the only stuff available anymore is all in widescreen. To get roughly the same 4:3 area, I'm going to have to go with a ~14", widescreen, right? (going by http://www.silisoftware.com/tools/screen.php )

    The part that's hanging me up though is trying to figure out where the cpu would be overkill. Like, do I take a Core 2 Duo 1800 w/ a 500GB or go with a Core 2 Duo 2400 w/ a 120GB configuration for $100 more? Would the 1800 give me enough horsepower to handle my DOSbox needs? As long as Under a Killing Moon ran, I think it'd handle everything I'd ever want to play.

    Does anyone have a C2D 1800 laptop that wouldn't mind doing some DOSbox testing? That'd be pretty awesome to play my GOG stuff on the road along with whatever other DOS goodies I decided to bring along (Skynet? Realms of the Haunting? Cybermage? Crusader? The sky's the limit, baby!).

    Trying to decide how much is just right is so hard. :(
