Also, is anyone aware of any standalone PC capture hardware that is around so that I would be able to record footage from my laptop, as well? Or would there just be some way to simply use a VGA-component device and use the same capture equipment to record my laptop?

@fattony12000: I'm mostly just going to be recording, since my internet situation in my flat isn't the best at the moment, and I'd like to have the option to edit all the boring parts of when I'm recording stuff for better videos!
Having streaming would be a good option, for the times that I'd be able to stream some multiplayer stuff, or some campaigns, but most of the time I wouldn't use it.
@charlie_victor_bravo: This looks great, and it solves the problem that I just encountered of my laptop's built-in graphics card only having 126MB of memory in it, which is too low for most decent capture cards to record with... I'll look more into the AVerMedia capture card, but it seems to suit my needs perfectly...
Anyone out there using one of these?
I've been hurt already with trying to use the Roxio HD Pro with both my laptop and my friend's high-spec PC, so now whenever I look at the reviews for a video game capture card, I can't help but think that it's simply going to be a waste of my money, for no results!
Does anyone have any experience with a capture card that has overall had no problems being used in conjunction with a laptop? I can provide specs, but it's powerful enough to run indie games and other software, the problem with the Roxio software, however, was that the program simply crashed whenever I tried to alter any of the settings... I can provide specs if need be.
What capture cards do you use? And have you experienced any problems with them? I was tempted to get a more expensive one, to try and avoid the issues of sloppy customer service, and unhelpful forums (like with the Roxio ones) but looking at the reviews of some of the more expensive pieces of hardware on Amazon, it seems like it's just an unavoidable problem... Can anyone help?
This only seems to occur when using the Giant Bomb video player (ie, not when using YouTube to view Giant Bomb videos) and even when I decrease the quality so there's less needed, it still causes my computer to run so much that after about 3 minutes, the whole thing shuts itself down to protect the components from melting!
I don't understand what causes this, since I've watched a lot of streaming online before, but this doesn't happen anywhere else (except for Netflix and fullscreen videos)... Any answers? I really miss watching premium content, as I can't do so for more than 2-minute stretches, followed by 5 minute breaks for my computer to cool.
Edit: I just tried it when disabling the 'embiggen' mode, and it seems to run better, is there something that I'm missing whereby larger video sizes causes the computer to require more processing power on such a large scale?

" @sammccallum16 said:" Anyone help me out what time would this be for GMT? :) "I believe it would be 5 PM for you, my mountainous friend! "
GMT is Greenwich Mean Time. And that means that for us Brits, the action kicks off at 11PM.
4PM + 7 hours time difference = 11PM! (It tells you that it's 7 hours difference in the post.)
Call me crazy, call me passionate, but as a Brit, I have no desire to spend £55 on a game. Yes, it may be a good game, but it wouldn't stop me from avoiding it, due to its stress upon my wallet.
And, as has been said before, this price hike is widely believed to be a "test". A proverbial toe-dip in the waters of consumer flexibility, if you will.
Meaning there is a chance that this price "hike" could go worldwide, if Activision so chooses. It makes sense for them to choose UK for a testing ground, too. It's not America, so it doesn't need to deal with the local criticism, and can merely plug its ears to the voices across the pond.
But not if you sign this petition. Sounds corny, I know, but petitions have been known to work in the past. No, not that L4D2 one. Let's just ignore that one. But others have! It doesn't even take much time. Just a couple of button clicks, a couple keyboard strokes, and ta da!

Try not to be cynical, and rip this apart...
Quick question, since I just inherited my sister's PINK DS LITE (I know, the worst colour for a guy to get it in, right?) and I need to change that case, quick.
Now, short of using every sticker I have to cover up every last bit of pink on the thing, it's not going to be done without changing the case... Which is when I saw your rather kickass chrome case.
Just had a couple questions about it, though.
Does it have that metallic smell, that some metals do? Like coins? And does it scratch easily? Is it significantly heavier than other cases? Etc...
Other than that, I was thinking about getting a clear DS Lite casing... Because we all remember the translucent blue GBAs... And they kicked ass.
