Re: SNES Classic

I know that I'm probably in the minority, but I am so glad that they stuck to authenticity and didn't include a reset button on the controller. I have naturally fidgety hands and I know that, had they included one, I would accidentally bumped it more than once. Another reason why I like having to ac...

SNES Classic

I was lucky enough to land my preorder, which I picked up first thing last Friday. After spending a considerable amount of time on it (Yoshi's Island and Final Fantasy III have taken most of my time), here are a few thoughts: -it reminded me of how much I miss the simplicity of turning on a console,...

Re: Cartridges making a comeback?

Pffft, some comeback. Grossly overpriced games ($50 for a port of LA Noir while the remastering t of the game is priced at $40, and this is far from being an isolated case), the return of compression techniques, etc. I guess that I don't see it as some sort of victory lap. What has really been gaine...

Re: Dark Souls II: Scholars (PS4)

Okay, so I'm starting to find my groove and I'm now enjoying the game (even though it is the weakest of the three). It has the atmosphere, the challenge hasn't gotten too insane (yet), and I do like the pacing. So far, I would rate the series like so: Demon Souls: B+ Dark Souls: A Dark Souls II: B B...

Re: 2017/9/17: Xbox One: Final Fantasy XV

I have long given up on this series, mainly because SE seems content sacrificing quality gameplay for the sake of creating something unique. I watched videos on the game, and it left me completely unimpressed. I can't, for the life of me, figure out what happened to this company! They've reached thi...

Right now, I have a Switch, a carrying case, Splatoon 2, Breath of the Wild, Gunbarich, and Strikers 1945: -Splatoon 2 and BotW: about $130, after taxes -Gunbarich and Strikers 1945 were about $17 combined. -Switch was about $330 after taxes. -the carrying case was $15 So, I would say that the entir...

Dark Souls II: Scholars (PS4)

I don't know why I bypassed this game, considering that I've invested time into every other game in the series. I downloaded it last week when it was on sale ($11.99! Not too shabby). I'm still near the beginning, but I can already see why it's considered the worst in the series. There seems to be a...

Final Pre-Release Thoughts on SNES Classic/A Proposal

With three weeks remaining, I've been giving the pre-release disaster of the SNES Classic a lot of thought. Up until recently, I've been in the camp that believes that Nintendo could rectify these issues by way of mass production. After thinking it through, I've come up with a better idea: Why would...

Re: RetroPie?

I would love to get a Rasberry Pi for Atari 7800, 32X, and Sega CD emulation. I've had difficulty getting the Sega CD to run in the past, but I know that it can be done. I would gladly get one to have games like Willy Beamish, Dracula Unleashed, Snatcher, Tomcat Alley, Sewer Shark, Food Fight, etc. ...

Gunbarich (Switch)

Another Psikyo arcade game, this one from 2001. If I were to write a review, it would be as simple as this: Ultra addicting, totally unique game that is a cross between pinball, breakout, bomberman, and schmup. You control a paddle, with flippers, and the goal is to break the blocks, while avoiding ...
