Re: Spring Game Special Update?

I've mentioned it before but Just Cause 2 on the 360 would be perfect for this- prepare to be amazed at the draw distances!

Re: Should original Xbox review be updated to reflect its poor reliability?

Well, this really opens up a can of worms once one considers that other consoles should also be evaluated in terms of their long-term reliability, even if all that is added to the reviews is a simple note about common longer-term technical challenges. If the Critic does add information about common ...

Re: Arcadia 2001 instructions?

Anyone know where I can find any Arcadia 2001 game instructions? I've scoured the internets and there's nothing obvious. I'm trying to review 3D Soccer, Auto Race, and Basketball. I can probably figure them out for myself, but it would be easier with manuals. You and I may well be the only two peop...

Re: 2016/10/2: Xbox One: Just Cause 3

This game was hard to review! Let me know how I did. Hard to review given all of the gameplay issues and even crashes? I'd say you did superbly, especially as other reviews I checked (such as the Ars Technica one) also indicated the same sort of technical troubles. I'd especially like to thank you ...

Re: Big Atari Computer Game Boxes

I was going through some of my old stuff the other day and discovered some Atari computer boxes for games like Pac-Man, Star Raiders, and Defender. Do you remember these? The black boxes are HUGE! They are 11 inches x 8.5 inches! And the cartridges they held inside were so small. I can only assume ...

Re: 2016/5/31: Xbox One: Doom

Ii just wanted to post a heartfelt thanks for mentioning the online requirements upfront- you're one of very few reviewers honest and thorough enough to do this. Useful knowledge like that allows us to be informed consumers who vote with our wallets.

Re: Ownership isn't what it used to be

Some devices of mine needed mandatory firmware updates recently. Usually, the device would not have been bricked without the FW update, but it would lose features, such as continued access to online stores or playing more recent games. The retro gamers a decade from now may have to be aware of firm...

Re: Most and Least Comfortable Controllers

Critic: When you do the lists, perhaps distinguishing between types of controllers would be of benefit for comparison purposes. For example, gamepad, joystick, paddle, pistol-grip, digital/analog, etc. As an example, the Neo Geo AES controllers are the most comfortable joystick/arcade style controll...

Re: Game Review Recommendations?

The Vector Pilot homebrew for the Vectrex comes to mind:

Heck, I'd be happy to loan out my own copy for a review. I really would enjoy reading The Critics take on this homebrew :)
