    It'll be a 10 Mbps network adapter that plugs into a PS/2 so he can play games over the internet via a broadband connection.

    Zelda 64 (the first one; #2 sucked hardcore, it was like "wtf, they moved some characters around, gave them new scripts, and reworked the landscape and sold a whole new game") did own. I'm playing it on an emulator right now since my N64 isn't plugged in (just the gamecube). I'm so bummed Zelda GC is the way it is, wish the guy would make a serious RPG like Zelda 64 instead of some cartoony spoof (can you say Paper Mario?).

    I think the 64 was a great system. The first six months after the launch were insane, I don't know how many hours I played Mario Kart with friends...

    The Playstation was okay (mmm, I wanna go nab Tekken 1 and an emulator right now...) but not as good.

    The Gamecube is lagging bigtime. What I want so bad right now is a) a really good RPG (read: Zelda 64 style) and b) a really good beat-'em-up (Tekken or Mortal Kombat are the two series I would really like to see a game from).

    i loved N64 during it's reign and especially the beginning. I loved Mario 64, Zelda, and uh... yea...

    You know what else annoys me? When people don't take the time to punctuate and use at least half-decent grammar... Not referring to anyone in here of course....

    You won't get a home connection above about 3 megabits even with the fastest dedicated cable (that's downstream only). T-1 is 1.544 megabits which is the only broadband connection anyone could afford or need in their home right now. DS-1 is 1.86 megabits. T-3 and DS-3 are both 45 megabits, OC-1 is 51.84 megabits. So the stuff you would even need a 10/100 or 1000 Base-T adapter for is out of price range for the time being...

    Most houses wouldn't even have the required cables available to get a T1-T3. You'd have to get the company to lay the cabling from the city all the way to your house.

    I take it no one else has it?




    Think about PS3.... Toshiba and IBM are helping. And as of last year over 40 million or 400 went to into research for a new chip code named: cell. You can even burn your own cds with this. Cant wait to hear what else.
