Last-Gen: The Top 10 SEGA Dreamcast Games Unveiled

250°
261w ago - The SEGA Dreamcast, a system that many would say was way ahead of its time and a system many would argue was taken from us far too young.

Before it was cool to participate in online gaming on a console, Dreamcast had it. Before it was cool to speak to your games, Dreamcast had a microphone.

Because of a grand list of shenanigans on everyone's part, the Dreamcast crumbled due to the unstoppable juggernaut that was the PS2. Love it or hate it, Sega' s last hurrah was an innovative system with its share of great games.

The following is a top ten list to crown the 10 best Dreamcast games of all time:

10. Marvel vs. Capcom 2
9. Skies of Arcadia
8. Power Stone
7. Jet Grind Radio
6. Sonic Adventure
5. Shenmue
4. Sonic Adventure 2
3. Soul Caliber
2. Crazy Taxi
1. Resident Evil: Code Veronica

Last-Minute Conficker Survival Guide Available

100°
263w ago - I saw this on Yahoo, and with tomorrow being April 1st (D-Day for the Conficker worm) here is an excerpt that may help:

Your first step should be the tools you already have: Windows Update, to make sure your computer is fully patched, and your current antivirus software, to make sure anything that slips through the cracks is caught.

But if Conficker's already on your machine, it may bypass certain subsystems and updating Windows and your antivirus at this point may not work. If you are worried about anything being amiss - try booting into Safe Mode, which Conficker prevents, to check - you should run a specialized tool to get rid of Conficker.

Microsoft offers a Web-based scanner (note that some users have reported it crashed their machines; I had no trouble with it), so you might try one of these downloadable options instead: Symantec's Conficker (aka Downadup) tool, Trend Micro's Cleanup Engine, or Malwarebytes....

SCEE Boss Not Sure if PS3 Will Last its 10-Year Lifespan

250°
268w ago - One of Sony's main arguments to defend against the Xbox 360 is the PlayStation 3's longevity. They once even said that the console is future-proof, and will last longer than the PS2 will.

But now, even SCEE prez David Reeves isn't sure the console will go completely through its supposed 10-year lifespan, saying:

The competition will have new models on the market by the end of the PS3. I have no doubt and we'll have to be fast on our feet... I don't know whether the PS3 lifespan will be eight, nine or ten years.

He does add though, that the PlayStation 4 is not "on the horizon" yet. And it really shouldn't be - even Microsoft's Robbie Bachexpects this generation to last longer than previous ones.
