You're wanting to upscale the output of the Dreamcast to HD? You could get a decent VGA box from Retro-Bit for about $25 USD, and then put a VGA cable between that and a VGA to HDMI converter box. Good converters aren't cheap though.

Over here we vote for parties n'all though. America just seems to be "vote for a president that's either gonna be extremely left or extremely right".

That's the thing though. Until this election there hadn't been any (relevant) right-wing candidates for about 30 years. McCain and Romney lost because they had no appeal for conservatives except for the fact that they weren't Obama. Millions didn't bother voting, but now many of those people are openly supporting Trump, hence why he draws massive crowds on an almost daily basis that no one else has even come close to mustering.

Extremely left? Outside of Sanders who hasn't a prayer of winning the nomination there hasn't been a single candidate on the field I would consider left of center on anything but social issues. If the likes of Bill or Obama or Hillary were running for office in Britain or Germany or Denmark etc. they would almost assuredly be in the Conservative party. Only in America are they considered "liberal".

What passes for a conservative in these parts (Ted Cruz) is so conservative I'm not even sure most countries in the first world even have a parallel outside of extreme fringe parties with a fraction of the support the Tea Party has here.

When I say extremely left, I mean in the field of actual politics, not the ridiculously gay views of SJWs n Buzzfeed.

EDIT: And no, Obama would definitely not be considered right over here.

Anyone seen Spider-Man's new costume in the latest Civil War trailer?

It looks like diarrhea. What were they thinking?

I like it. It's a classic look. Though I do wanna see web wings eventually.

The design ain't bad. It's just Spider-Man, with a couple black stripes and a smaller spider on his chest (which I'm not a fan of, but whatever). Probably should have been textured in some way, because the shot of him looks completely fake, like it's all cg. It's just too smooth, like it's painted onto a mannequin.
Otherwise, I have to say, I'd really like to see the Ben Reilly version of the Spidey costume in a movie someday. Always really liked how that looked.
Anyway, I've always been more concerned with the actor for this new one. He seems... iffy. Nothing to go on but two words so far, but still, it's gonna be hard to follow Andrew Garfield. Whatever the quality of the last Spider-Man movie, I personally think it's hard to deny that Garfield was just about effing perfect for the role. So much presence and charm and all that. Going into this one with a crackly-voiced little kid.... I dunno. Eh.

People compared it to Alex Ross' design, which is fair game. It's also reminiscent to the 1960s cartoon.

Honestly though, I'm unbelievably spoiled over the costume they gave us for TASM2. That shit was perfection.

The part where he takes CA's shield, Iron Man should be like "Thanks, Spiderman." And then Spidey's like, "Everybody gets one."
