No mention of the microphone problems in Windows 7. How very “Creative”.

No they didn’t. The link above might not work because they might have moved it or something. They probably don’t appreciate hot-linking, for one thing.

I don’t appreciate navigating through countless pages, filled with adverts – just to get to the drivers on the official site. Just for the record…. :D

The links both still work for me too….

When you first start the game, you’re treated to a beautifully
detailed world with some of the most realistic looking 3D models seen in a handheld game.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic
to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
