Re: Atari Box update

I hate to be "that" guy, but I'm seriously not understanding the point of this. It's entering an already crowded market for the same price as a PS4 (which, btw, has two Atari Flashback volumes readily available), no distinguishable hook, and it's competing with itself in all of the wrong w...

Re: Mega Man 11 announced for PS4 and Pro/Xbox One and X/Nintendo Switch and PC for next year!

They actually seem like they did it the smart way. Doing a third consecutive game in the 8-bit style would have been a bit much, but it seems like they've learned from Mega Man 7 and 8 that the game has to have the same tight gameplay/speed as those old games (7 was sooo slow)! I am so glad that bot...

Re: A game I can "sink my teeth into"

Sir, have you heard the gospel of Dark Souls? This. I have heard people complain about the difficulty of this series, but I've never really understood it. It is definitely challenging, but it isn't impossible, not by any stretch! I'm not an expert-level gamer, and I have beaten Demon's Souls, Dark ...

Re: Wii U the new Dreamcast?

Eh. It's kind of a laughable comparison. The Dreamcast SHOULD have been Sega's Salvation, due to its extraordinarily diverse library of games! I mean, Sega themselves were firing on all cylinders, third party support was (initially) great, and the games looked terrific! In fact, the Dreamcast repres...

Re: 2017/11/19: Nintendo Switch: Sine Mora EX, Super Mario Odyssey

I just "finished" Mario Odyssey so your review is timely. I got to say, no way in the world would I rate this an A+. It's a great game, but it has many issues. Namely, the game has ZERO challenge. The boss battles are derivative and lack any challenge or originality. Also, I found the sta...

Rocket League (Switch)

My plan was to pick up Doom, or Skyrim, as the next game after Mario Odyssey. Instead, I downloaded Rocket League ($20, as opposed to $60 for the aforementioned games). The best way to sum up the game? It's soccer with RC cars. It has a learning curve, but it is very addictive! On a side note, I'm b...

Re: Super Mario Odyssey

When choosing your kingdom, hit Y and it provides a list of all of the moons you've collected, along with blank spaces to let you know how many moons are left in that kingdom.

Re: Got me a SWITCH!

Congratulations on getting a Switch! Having owned mine for the past few months, I'm willing to admit that I was (mostly) wrong in my criticisms (though I stand by my original opinion that they need to do something about the absurd prices of some of the games). Ahem. Anyway: -Splatoon 2. I didn't get...

Re: Super Mario Odyssey

200+ power moons in, and I'm going to have to give this an easy A+. It's charming, gorgeous, the levels are brilliantly designed, at no point has it felt like a slog, the music is stunning (this may be my new favorite score in the entire series!), the 2D segments are a blast, and (I haven't seen thi...

Re: Super Mario Odyssey

I've put about five hours into it, and I am loving it! It's way too early to call it the best Mario game of all time, but it IS great! These are the things that stood out to me, for better or worse: 1). The fact that they are still using text is beyond silly, in 2017. They could have taken the BotW ...
