He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Electronics giant Sony has announced a new, slimmer version of its PlayStation 3 (PS3) games console.

The sleek machine is around a third lighter, a third slimmer and uses a third less power than the original, said Kaz Hirai of the firm.
Speaking at the Games Com conference in Cologne, Germany, he said the console would hit shops in early September.

It will also be cheaper than the original, costing ?249.99 in the UK, around ?50 cheaper than the original. It will cost $299 in the US, 299 euros in Europe and 29980 yen in Japan. Like the older, fatter version of the console, the new machine will still have a 120GB hard drive.

That bit hasn't been announced as far as I can tell. If Sony had any sense it will be, but this is Sony.

(I had a frustrating but eventually fruitful search for an older model PS3 a while back due to the b/c issue.)

This is good news for folks wanting a PS3 or a good BD player.

It has some good games out.

Uncharted, Little Big Planet, Fat Princess, Motorstorm, and the two Resistance games, as well as a ton of multiplatform games that are great.

Apparently there is no backwards compatibility so I have no real reason to get one.

There's also no support for Linux on this one, which kills it as a clustering/academic platforms. Which is a shame, because the lower power consumption and smaller form factor makes it more ideal for clustering.

With the way Xbox emulation works I wouldn't wish for that in a PS3.

Because removing backwards campatibility saves them money, pretty much had no noticeable drop in sales, and gives people a reason to spend $100 on a ten year old piece of hardware.

I'd pay $400 for a BC PS3 just for the convenience of not having two systems hooked up.

They're so big on different SKU's make a "super" system that has it. It would sell. Going by this thread alone not including it has already cost them $600 and possibly more.

If my 360 is to ever give up the ghost, this could be an awesome alternative. While backwards compatability is nice, by backlog of PS2 games I never really got around to would only make the amount of PS3 games I'd like to play seem even longer, so it would be no HUGE loss.

When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.
