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...

Re: Compulsive video gaming = mental health condition?

I think it's rare, but a legitimate issue. You can get addicted to just about anything, and the "risk/reward system" of video games can keep you hooked similar to gambling. Years back, I remember hearing about people dying in Japan from playing marathon sessions of RTS games (like Starcraf...

Re: Jurassic Park Video Game Review Special

Wow, never realized you reviewed so many of these! If this shows anything, it's that developers have completely failed at using the JP license effectively. Like I mentioned in a post yesterday, the best of the bunch might be Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, which is a Theme Park style game for the ...

Re: 2018/6/19: Playstation: The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park Special Edition

Never played any of these, but still found the reviews interesting to read. I had actually read the old version of the Special Edition review a few days ago, and it was interesting how much your thoughts on that game have changed since the last time you reviewed it. It's too bad that no developer ha...

Re: Madden Day

Fun read- thanks for posting this. Not just the games, but also your disgruntled reminiscings as a Bears fan. I'm a big football fan as well and try to get a new game once or twice a generation. But I didn't start playing the Madden series for the first time until Madden 2002 on the Xbox. Before tha...

Re: 2018/6/7: Playstation 4: Everybody's Golf

It's too bad that this one didn't turn out well. I've been a big fan of the Hot Shots Golf series from the first time I played a demo of the original PS1 game back in the day. They really perfected the arcade-style golf game over the years. But once that happens, there's still pressure to mix up the...
