If you need a PS style controller for the PC, I've had good look with a pair of Nyko AirFlo EX controllers I bought on Woot a year or so ago. The fan in them is kind of gimicky, but the controllers are pretty comfortable and they've worked with no issues so far.

I've had two of their PS2 controllers. They were nice ergonomically. And the ability to force the use of analog sticks in games without analog stick support, such as with many PS1 RPGs was nice. But they wore out way to fast. On both controllers I had the analog sticks develop dead spots in around 2 to 3 months.
That was pretty much my reaction to it. It was cruising along as a pretty good, creepy and suspenseful sci-fi flick, then all of the sudden sharp turn into extremely predictably slasher flick.
The prison movie idea is pretty much the plot of the game The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay. And yes, it would likely have made a good stand alone movie if done right.
The Orbiter also flies absurd distances. I bought one at an American Eagle outlet of all places back around '90 or so. Tried it out in the parking lot immediately. Thought I'd lost it on the first throw, but it kept going in a large circle until it started coming back. It landed nowhere near close enough to catch it but it was only about 30 feet from start. The circle path if flew in was probably in the 200 to 300 foot in diameter range.
Well, seeing as how you can still play Starcraft on Battle.net, it's pretty obvious you have no point to make and just enjoy talking out of your ass.
Looks like it. The bottom of the list at the parent link there were nine servers listing Shifter V1G.
Character creation was pretty much the best part of CoH. Sometimes more fun than the actual game.
They can if they hold a monopoly or near monopoly on their service or good, hence why we have protections in place against monopolies abusing their position.
The answer is not much. No one has been killed by swear words, no one has been killed by watching porn, no one has been raped by watching R rated movies, etc.
I don't know about that last one. I felt pretty violated after seeing Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever.
Yes, and a decent motherboard can take AM2, AM2+, or AM3 chips with no issue. The only problem with that is whether they'll take DDR2 or DDR3 RAM.
Mine main system is built from parts. I add in new parts as needed. This seems to amount to getting stuff like video cards, or CPU and Motherboard every two years or so. Althought not all at once. I've found that getting a video card one year and the CPU, and motherboard if necessary, the next keep the system feeling current. Additionally, less strain on the wallet at one time. Stuff like hard drives are added as needed.
No Stands with a Fist was a Lakota adoptee. It's been ages since I watched the movie and I don't recall the exact circumstances. But that's why she can speak English even though she was out of practice.
So, there are things where if you win a game, that's how you gain experience points. If you win against a higher level opponent, you get more experience points; if you bottom feed and you take advantage of lower-level players, you don't get as much, and so on.
Isn't that a somewhat old and fairly standard team rating/ranking system? I'm fairly sure that various sports games already do that kind of system so that you can't do as well by just beating low teams.
If not then half of Games Workshop's sideline table-top 'skirmish' games already do it, and Blood Bowl has already been made in to a game (once with license, and before that without a license).
Bloodbowl has actually been made with license twice. There's licensed games from 1995 and 2009 as well as the unlicensed 2004 Chaos League.
