If that's how you enjoy playing them, then don't let anybody stop you!

The difference between the two MSI cards is that the more expensive one has an additional D-Sub output, and also has a "gaming mode" and "oc mode" which both have higher core clock speeds than the cheaper card.

Last I heard the EVGA card was having some issues, but they might have been fixed by now.

Yeah we have the Centurion Challenge in Canada, I heard about Power Hour after Centurion.

It isn't the alcohol which makes the Centurion hard, it is the sheer volume of beer you are ingesting in that short of a period.

Yeah it's pretty fucking brutal.
I have a pretty hard time with beer in my belly at the best of times.

...It's probably at this point that I should admit that I've never successfully completed a centurion :(

Does Australia use a metric hour? 100 minutes?

Nope, otherwise we'd probably call it "Power Hour" and not "Centurion."

EDIT:
Does anywhere in the world do this?

@thekreep: Ya 40 shots of beer instead of a shot of 40 shots of hard liqour is more hardcore.

Ya, you win. Uh huh. ;)

From listening to the last Bombcast, my understanding of the power hour was 60 shots of beer - one per minute.
If you guys do a shot of liquor every minute for an hour, that is fucking crazy talk and I will completely concede on Australia's behalf that you guys are way more hardcore!

I'm sorry. You're missing out.

Pretty sure you guys are the ones who are missing out.
On 40 shots of beer.
Pansies!

Don't apologise to me - the only people you're letting down are yourselves!

We have "Centurion", which is almost the same thing, except it's a shot of beer every minute for 100 minutes.

Harden up, America!

One thing definitely worth noting is that MGS1 only came out less than a year after the first DualShock hit the market.
I imagine that the design of the controls for the game was built around the fact that most PSX users only had a D-Pad, face-buttons, and shoulder-buttons to interact with the game.

EDIT:
After some Googling, I was reminded that the PSX Dual Analog controller existed, but even that only came out months before the DualShock.
