Everyone must have already played them. Wizard's Tower is the best of them. Anyone playing Oblivion should grab that one for sure.

Devin Townsend is a genius, he really has an unique sound, and Ill go as far as saying no one else sounds like him.
He's definitely unique. You either love his stuff or can't stand it.

Another unique offering is Ayreon. Some more good stuff.

There's no debate who the best captain was, Kirk. He got more tail then all the other captains combined. Plus he got to fight a giant walking lizard. He can't be touched. :)

DVD Shrink is starting to not work anymore. Even with AnyDVD I have been having trouble with shrink lately. DVD Decrypter has given me more success. Both shrink and decrypter aren't being updated anymore. A lot of the newer discs won't be copyable using those programs. Pick up dvdfabdecrypter. It's...

I played it. Fun but I found it more difficult than the original. I won't ruin the ending for you, but be prepared for a bad one.

Most of the noise issues are with the dvd drives. Mine's like that as well. Put a disc in and it drowns out everything for a block around.

I guess they've started putting new drives in that are quite a bit quieter.

Tunebite will allow you to convert drm protected files to wav. The loss of sound quality if you want to convert it to mp3 is a small problem. But no matter what method you use, that's going to be what you're faced with.

Sounds like the disc is unreadable on certain sectors. Do you have another drive to test it out?

You can also try and make an image of the disc, mount it with a phantom drive and see if that works. Sometimes it'll pick up the bad sectors on an image read.

There's some bugs on the 360 version as well. Not as bad as the PC, that's for sure. Worth a rent at the very least.

I just can't see any mod like this being successful. Without the support of the developer, there is just too much involved for it to work properly. Think of all the time that was put into the single player portion of Oblivion and then remember the number of small glitches or bugs throughout the game...

DvdFabDecrypter for ripping and DVDRebuilder with the CCE plugin for encoding will give you the best quality results.

DVDShrink actually holds up pretty well for a program that has been discontinued. Not good for ripping though.

Don't forget that putting that thing on will also void your warranty. With the number of failings on the 360, I wouldn't be putting anything on mine.

This is going to be standard fare now with any console release. It's already gotten boring.

Maybe these guys should auction it off and give the money to a children's hospital. Just a nutty suggestion.
