Re: Worst Types of Levels?

Stealth levels where you have to restart if you're seen! This sort of thing nearly killed LoZ: The Wind Waker for me! Speaking of WW, anything that involves sailing is awful! Arkham Asylum is an exception to this rule IMO, as it gave you checkpoints during the stealth parts with the Scarecrow. Anyw...

Top 5Favorite Christmas Specials/Movies?

Let's waste no time. 5. A Christmas Story: Yeah it's extremely overcommercialized, but it's still a holiday classic, mixing dark comedy with the charm of any other Christmas masterpiece. 4. Home Alone: Let's face, what everyone remembers most about this movie is the trap scene. The closest thing to ...

Re: Kirby 64 (Nintendo 64)

Playing this game again, and I think the critic should review it. Since it's played from a 2D plane there's no camera struggle at all, and the combination system makes this more interesting than the average Kirby game.

Re: Underrated And Overlooked Albums

California by Mr. Bungle: Because it came out around the same time as Californiacation and because of the feud between Mike Patton and Anthony Kledis, this never got the recognition it deserved, but it's an amazing, brilliant album. There's so much attention to detail, and even though it's written i...

Batman: Arkham Asylum (360)

Hooked up my 360, so I decided to play Arkham Asylum for the first time ever, and yeah, I've been missing out. The first that strikes me is, as a huge Batman The Animated Series fan, I'm delighted they got Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill in to do the voices of Batman and the Joker respectfully. But mor...

Best Sega Genesis Soundtracks?

The Genesis sound chip has gotten a bad rap, but in the right hands, it created some incredible video game soundtracks. So which ones were the best on the system? Sonic 3 & Knuckles: The first 2 games indeed had good soundtracks, but got a little too 80s cheesy at times for my taste (Metropolis ...

Re: Play as many games as you can or play less games to death ?

I think for the most part it depends on the scope of the game. If it's a game small enough for you to explore every nook and cranny, then yeah, I'd play it to death. Examples include Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon and Quake II. However, while games like Skyrim are good, it may be really overwhelming to f...

Yoshi's Story (N64)

I find it hard to believe this was the game that disappointed people, because I just got it today and I think it's great. The game seems short, but there's so many secrets, hidden areas and items, and choosing multiple paths adds so much replay value. I love collecting lucky fruit, and surprisingly ...

Quake II (Nintendo 64)

I got this game not expecting much (since it's a port), but damn I love this game! Not only is it better than Goldeneye and Perfect Dark in my opinion, it's one of the best first person shooters period. The game is fast paced, intense and runs at a ridiculously fast and smooth frame rate. I love wea...
