1. Downtime notice - Oct. 17, 2017

    Well, it's a permanent downtime. After 22 years of service it's time for a final goodbye. Our live production servers will be taken offline on October 17th. The simple fact is that there are plenty of better ways to get the secrets hidden in games and connect with other gamers. There are plenty of Youtube channels and Twitch streams that will show games played at their best, something that plain text and screenshots can't convey. If you want to connect to other gamers outside of those services, there are plenty of Discord servers that offer a direct and engaging community experience.

    Please visit our friends at GameFAQs.com or IGN.com for information such as codes, guides, reviews, etc. They're the real deal and have always been respectful and honest about how they operate. Our ghost pages can be found on Archive.org for those times that you'd like to take a look back at how things were.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed content and time managing our community, and especially to you, our dear visitors!

    Our last words: "Up ,Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, A, B, Select, Start"

    I was always under the impression that if you wanted to watch your 3D Blu-ray movies all you needed was the 3DTV in addition to any Blu-Ray player. Now it turns out stores here are saying you need a 3D-ready Blu-Ray player... Has that always been the case, or have they been spouting misinformation to get customers to buy specific brands? Or is the 3D enabled through a firmware update like the PlayStation was to play 3D games a while back and they're still not telling them?

    As far as I know, for 3D to work the Blu-Ray player needs to be able to support HDMI 1.4. Products with 1.4 compatibility were released in 2009 I believe, so I doubt they even still sell Blu-Ray players new that don't support 3D. It is probably just a marketing thing.
