I need a 2nd monitor for increased/decreased productivity, 1920×1080 or 1920×1200 resolution. Let me know if you’ve got one for sale.January 24, 2013 at 8:52 am #26242JerrySParticipant
You can try taobao, ill assume you have. I got mines for 1300 rmb, 24 inch 1080p. Use it for 2nd monitor and ps3, though have yet to turn it on for about 5 weeks, too lazy to play video games.January 24, 2013 at 9:04 am #26244Quote:too lazy to play video games.

I picked up a really nice slimline 23″ LG LED not too long ago from a vendor in Digital Plaza that I found on Taobao. I paid 1050 RMB for it.January 24, 2013 at 9:12 am #26246
yeah, trying to see if I can pick up a used one cheap before I buy new.January 24, 2013 at 9:50 am #26253January 24, 2013 at 10:37 am #26258DiamondParticipant
Brendan that Amstrad image bought a flood of memories back, the Amstrad CPC 464 was my first ever computer. The keyboard was solid and the monitor weighed a ton and loading the game which was on cassette was a nightmare as it took forever.
I recall loading the game going for my dinner and by the time I finished dinner I was ready to play the computer oh the evolution of technology is remarkable.January 24, 2013 at 10:52 am #26259BenModerator
Amstrads suck! Sinclair ZX spectrum FTW!
I remember putting the game in to load before going for dinner. Then returning to find it had crashed while loading 🙁January 24, 2013 at 11:14 am #26260DiamondParticipant
Ha Ha had the same happen many times when loading a game then it crashed while loading. Amstrad was good enough for me but I did envy my cousins Amiga commodore with it’s better faster loading games.January 24, 2013 at 5:12 pm #26265
I guess I was pretty lucky since my first computer ran MS-DOS and games loaded pretty quick from 5.25″ floppies. I even found my dad’s 8 bit porn stash.January 25, 2013 at 1:31 am #26266Quote:Amstrads suck! Sinclair ZX spectrum FTW!

Yes!! My first computer was a ZX48 (Jet Set Willy!), that machine was pretty awesome considering how limited it was. I went through most of the home computers, including a Commodore 64 (skipped the utterly useless Vic 20), both the Atari ST (Cubase!!), Commodore Amiga, and then on to the consoles. My Dad had a green screen Amstrad in his office that couldn’t do anything, and some of my friends were unlucky enough to end up with the CPC.
Who remembers ‘Hyper Load’, the faster loading feature introduced on some later Spectrum games?January 25, 2013 at 1:43 am #26268Quote:I remember putting the game in to load before going for dinner. Then returning to find it had crashed while loading 🙁

Most everything mentioned here is before my time, but I do remember:
– Dying of dysentery in Oregon Trail on Apple II
– Installing Doom on 3.5″ floppy and being terrified playing in the dark
– Flight simulators with 300-page manuals
– Text-based RPG’s where you type commands like “Open the door” into a terminal

The ZX Spectrum gave birth to these bloody awful games that consumed more time reading than actually playing!Quote:– Text-based RPG’s where you type commands like “Open the door” into a terminal
Some friends and I wrote one of these ourselves, and managed to get a review in a nationally published games magazine. My only memory of the game is that it was shit.

My first computer was a rubber key 48k ZX spectrum. I have fond memories of returning home from school and typing, load “”. Then inserting the tape of my choice in the external tape player. Favorite games included: paperboy, jetset willy, manic miner, attic attack, horace goes skiing, jetpac, pssst….
After the fantastic rubber key speccie, I had the James Bond Living Daylights Spectrum 128k+ pack which light gun!!! Then an Atari ST. The most memorable game I had for that was Joust.

Haha that brings me back to the days of Amiga. I used to love Earthworm Jim, Golden Ax and Lemmings! I think i still have my army of Amiga floppies collecting dust in our attic at home.
When Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter came out it gave birth to button bashing! I used to beat friends who actually tried to memorize the combos by bashing buttons. Pissed them off like there was no tomorrow… I loved that!January 27, 2013 at 11:26 am #26306VincentParticipant
I actually enjoy the noise that is coming out of that YT videoJanuary 27, 2013 at 3:38 pm #26307Rick in ChinaParticipant
While I have fond memories of many games and systems from the 80s, the first time I really remember playing with friends overnight was when Civilization 1 came out. I remember having friends stay at my place and we’d plan our entire night around the game.. taking turns sleeping and transitioning who would take over the civilization until the wee hours.
Before that, most games (at least from my perspective which may be largely age-based..like, 10) may have been addictive but not in the sense of I need someone to take over when I sleep, and plan a transition plan military style for ‘watching the fort’. SimCity is re-releasing in March, and reviews seem to pin it as pretty epic.
Gaming addiction all started with my older brothers’ intellivision, burger time FTW.. and this civilization style prequel called Utopia.January 27, 2013 at 3:46 pm #26308
Chris ended up buying a used 24″ monitor for like 600 kuai near Computer City. We went there on Saturday, really cool market with stacks upon stacks of old computer parts. I posted a few photos on my blog. We saw a 27″ Apple Cinema Display for 3,300 yuan. Pretty cool, very fair price. That is a great place to buy used computer parts of any kind.Quote:SimCity is re-releasing in March, and reviews seem to pin it as pretty epic.
It does look really cool. I loved how the developers of the new Simcity went on Reddit and were like “Ask us anything!” and got buried in thousands of derogatory comments about the game’s restrictive DRM.Quote:Haha that brings me back to the days of Amiga.

Amiga? Those were Sega Genesis games where I’m from. Lemmings was on PC too, though.January 27, 2013 at 4:09 pm #26314Rick in ChinaParticipant
RE: “27” Apple Cinema Display for 3,300 yuan”
I think that’s what our 42″ 3D LED for the bedroom cost a couple months ago 😀 although Apple displays are fantastic, I’d rather a larger multipurpose TV!
