Looking back on the 7th Generation: PS3 vs. XBox 360 vs. Wii

I tend to ramble so I'll attempt to be concise. The Bronze trophy goes to the Nintendo Wii. Sure, shovel ware was a problem, but sift through that and you'll find the most unique library of the 7th generation. Presentation restrictions actually led to some creative games when developers weren't sadd...

Looking back on the 7th Generation: PS3 vs. XBox 360 vs. Wii

[QUOTE=Jon]The Wii sucks. It's not even close to those other systems.[/QUOTE] I'll repeat what I said in the last thread. You really need to figure out a way to interact with other people. Or expect to have people continue to not take you seriously. I think the Wii is an okay system. I really enjoy ...

Looking back on the 7th Generation: PS3 vs. XBox 360 vs. Wii

I'm in the camp that thinks the Wii hasn't aged well and will probably continue that trend in the future. The mandatory motion controls really broke most experiences for me. Why did they have to shoehorn motion controls into something like Donkey Kong Country Returns? A fantastic platformer that I n...

Looking back on the 7th Generation: PS3 vs. XBox 360 vs. Wii

I've seen this topic done a couple of times over the last 5 years or so.  But now that the 7th generation is over I'm wondering if anyone has changed their mind on whether they prefer the PS3, Wii or XBox 360.  Talk about games, system features, online, whatever....  Just tell the for...

The Gamecube is the most underrated console ever!

Wow. A very old thread! I actually just started playing Metroid Prime again in the last month and that game still looks amazing. Some of the best graphics on any pre-HD system. Of course it's an amazing game to boot, but I was shocked at how amazing the game still looks 13 years after the fact. I do...

PSN flash sale/everything under $1

My character is super weak. I've only played for a single evening. But yeah, I'd be down for some VCG forum co-op.

Bloodborne: From Soft does it again

For those that are playing it, how does Bloodborne look? I followed the development pretty closely and it looked absolutely beautiful. I'm assuming it looks and plays well. The one technical hiccup critics have been complaining about-- loading times-- are getting patched soon. Overall, it's nice to ...

2015/3/24: PSP: SNK Arcade Classics 0 (Japan)

[QUOTE=Jon]Yea, leave it to Sony to mess up a collection like this. I was really looking forward to this review, as I'm such a huge Neo Geo fan.[/QUOTE]

Uh oh! Looks like someone doesn't understand third party publishing.

Is the new 'retro' look 32/64 bit Early Polygon and not 16 bit Sprite

[QUOTE=HardcoreSadism]Could you just enjoy the Jaguar without subjective hyperbole? It just comes off as 'Hipster' or whatever those ironic types are.[/QUOTE] This.

PSN flash sale/everything under $1

I bought five games yesterday, I think. I played a bunch of Dead Nation on PS4 last night and it's really fun. Suggest that one if you guys don't already have it.
