Re: 2018/7/12: Nintendo Switch: Mario Tennis Aces

Yet another time where I think it would bw much more helpful to your readers if you listed the developer of the game, not the publisher. These days Nintendo doesn't always make their sports games, and some developers have better track records than other. For example, Wayforward made the amazing Mar...

Race the Sun (Great $2 game) (PS4, XB1, Wii U, PC, etc.)

Here's a game I picked up on PS4 last week that I highly recommend. It's usual price is $9.99, and the gameplay might be a little too shallow for $10, but I got it on sale for $1.99 and it's well worth it at that price. It's available as a download on many systems, including PS4, Xbox One, Vita, PS3...

Re: 2018/7/3: Super Nintendo: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie

I used to think $30 for a loose SNES cartridge was expensive, but nowadays it seems to be becoming the norm. That's for sure. I made a spreadsheet of my SNES games last year, with values, and was shocked how much they had increased since buying them. It's even worse for CIB games. Around 10 years a...

Re: 2018/7/3: Super Nintendo: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie

Your review of MMPR: The Movie made me want to buy it ASAP. Then I saw that it sells for about $30 loose!! Considering that every other Power Rangers game is dirt cheap, my guess is that gamers must have learned that this one is a hidden gem. I wasn't a Power Rangers fan growing up, but my younger c...

Re: NES Classic Impressions

I ordered one on BestBuy.com too, and should arrive this week. It's already shipped. I didn't order until several hours after launch, so either there is a lot less demand or a lot more supply this time (probably both). I've only played my SNES Classic for a grand total of like 2 hours, so I'm not re...

Re: Cuphead (Xbox One)

I haven't heard any plans for a physical release either. I wouldn't rule it out, but even if it does ever happen I wouldn't expect it anytime soon. Plus, like velcrozombie noted, the game is an Xbox One exclusive on consoles, and it seems like Limited Run Games and a lot of the similar small publish...

Re: Paragraphs?

True, always exceptions. As long as it's not the new norm for each review, then I can't see any drawbacks.

Re: Paragraphs?

Well said, Matchstick. I have no problem with the Indy 500 Legends review experimenting with paragraph breaks, but overall I think you should avoid making it a new practice. Two main reasons. First, paragraphs make your reviews look longer. So, even if the paragraph breaks make things more readable ...

Well done for sure, and definitely easily readable.

Re: Cuphead (Xbox One)

Got to play this for about an hour at a gaming convention last year. Love the art style, of course (impossible not to). I do wish the difficulty was more adjustable...it was fair enough early in the game, but I worry that it probably gets too impossible toward the end. I like the shmup stages, but w...
