I would like to really still see the PS4 have backwards compatibility of PS1/PS2/PS3 games. I think that would make it easier to transition. I still tend to unhook my PS4 and go back to my PS3 for weeks at a time because I do have a backlog of games. Especially some of the PS1/PS2 games that I bought digitally during the sales for under $3 or $4.

I play a lot of previous gen games that I still want to catch up on on or even replay after 5 years.

Good afternoon Duders,

Do any of you have some good suggestions for an audio converter for windows? I use MAX for Mac, but I have not really found a good analog on the windows platform. Really I am just looking for all of the major audio formats. I usually end up ripping the originals in Apple Lossless and then usually down sample to 128 or less for podcasts to fit them on my devices where audio quality isn't super important in that setting.

The problem is that Vinny is the other side of the country to Dan and Jeff. And Skype podcasts never work that well because of the latency issues and not being able to see and interact with people as easily as if you're in the same room.

I don't think it would be a huge issue, but like you said, if they wanted to do it right, they would have to be in the same room. Over skype is fine, but a lot of moments just don't play as well as in person.

The cubbies are in town. Even if you don't love baseball, it's pretty neat to visit Wrigley Field just for the historical aspect. Michigan Ave if you are into shopping. If you are looking to go to a nicer place for dinner than just Portillos (which is also great), Chicago Q I have been really impressed by their bag that is a little more fancy than your typical joint if you are looking to entertain people as well.

Bought the PS3 version right around launch, kind of fell out of games for a year or two until I up the ps4 gtav bundle for $300. I feel kind of bad I spent $60 on a game where I.only played the first part.

I am so ready for this! These are the one movie a year that I will watch in the theatres for the effect.

Jeff and crew, I would really love to have a podcast reviewing the depths of the this franchise after they go and see F&F7.

1998, 2001 and 2004 were really my top 2. 2008 was really spectacular as well.

I really hadn't noticed each until say 2-3 years later when I got through all of those games from each year listed above. Like when you are in it, yeah, it looks like a good line up a lot of times, but I think it takes awhile with me at least to see how the games hold up over time also as a marker of their staying power.

Haha. I am definitely going to have to watch this review. I remember when the game was originally reviewed and saw that there was a review, I read and watched it in earnest in that I had a ton of fun with 18 Wheeler: American Pro Trucker. 18 Wheeler was not amazing, but picking it up for 15 or 20 bucks, that game was halfway decent. I was hoping this would be the same... Haha, Big Rigs was not even close but I did buy it for 3 bucks in a bargain bin after Alex's stellar review!
