Shipwreck - what was the rca to hdmi converter you bought?  Still working well? Thx

This is the one I bought. I've only had it for a couple weeks, but it's working still. Always a crap-shoot with stuff like this as no well-known or reliable companies make these type of products.

What was the battle Mage game's name. I missed the title and don't want to scroll back.

Lichdom: Battlemage

The problem is that your list there is a very impressive score for those prices. You simply can't sustain that because the supply of high demand games at cheap prices dries up very quickly. There just aren't that many $5 Ogre Battles or $4 Chrono Triggers or $2 Zelda Collections out there.

You can create folders on PS3, but not on PS4. Unless they added it recently.

I'm really surprised to hear that Shipwreck enjoyed the "art of video games" exhibit as much as he did. I checked it out in Phoenix a few months ago and was severely disappointed.

Selecting four games to represent each console based on those terrible categories (Target???) led to some really bizarre choices, like LotR: Battle for Middle-Earth 2 representing the Xbox 360. That normally wouldn't be enough to ruin an entire exhibit, except... there was hardly anything else there! There were no interesting examples of how art in video games has evolved, or how games could be considered art.

The fact that the gift shop was filled with stacks of the curator's own book, coupled with a ridiculously high entrance fee, really illuminated what the whole thing was about: some guy making money off his half-assed game collection.

The Toledo Art Museum is free. I enjoyed hearing the short stories about the various games even if some of them weren't blockbusters. The four categories have structure to the exhibit even if stuff like LOTR: Whatever was there. It just showed how tactical games weren't a major genre on that generation of consoles. It's a concise look at gaming's evolution over the past 40+ years.
