    Matrox, please don't start with the Matrox! Backwards technology, only useful for video editing.

    A couple sticks of DDR would of helped in their plight. They could fire off shots at twice the speed.

    Matrox is also good for business applications and wider screen gaming. Plus it supports a lot of multimedia apps that the GForces are only catching up to.
    The Emperor should have considered this.
    DDR would also be helpful and also a Sound Blaster Live would have made the explosion sound heaps better

    Should the Imperials have gone with SeaGate or IBM HDDs?

    Probably IBM. But the costs would probably then outweigh their need for HDD space.

    I agree, IBMs are very reliable and sturdy.
    Maybe Western Digital is also an option?
    Seagate is a joke and would have let the Empire down fullstop.

    I loved the action replay cartridge! One push of the button and you could save an entire game (as long as it all loaded in one hit) into one single file about 5 times smaller, and 10 times faster to load.

    Action Replay - the original WinZip/WinAce.

    The Action Replay cartridge would have sped up the Rebellion 10 fold!

    Back to Star Wars.

    What did people think of the New Hope trailer?

    I thought it made the film look like a tension sci-fi thriller in the mould of Alien, rather than a action-sci-fi. It was just the music that set the scene, and it looked like little budget was left for the trailer.

    The trailer really did make the movie look really cheap and almost nasty. It was very thriller like. Interesting was also the focus and non-focus set on various characters who we would now see as important and of little-importantance.

    The trialer, I thought, was a little bad... maybe it was the slow voice or the pretty bad score that accompanied it or maybe just that it showed non-great scenes. But still, it was the 70s what do you expect? ;)

    It was very dated, a wonderful piece of film history.

    Does anyone remember the comedy made after it called "Hardware Wars"? I think

    It was very dramatic and gave a totally different impression of the story

    Yeah, it was just that line that cracked me up. It was probably more the voice than anything else.

    Perhaps the Deathstar should have run a 400w power supply?
