Re: Xbox One X Review

First off, thanks for the review. Definitely found it interesting and useful, and I'm at least semi-interested in the Xbox One now, after having no interest before. I do agree with David, though, that the biggest issue for the Xbox One remains its lack of compelling exclusives. It really shows how i...

Re: Tony Hawk series

Oh, and the soundtracks in those games are god tier That's a good point too.. I had forgotten about that. In the 90s, it was almost unprecedented for developers to spend a bunch of money on licensing a lineup of real music for in-game use. To my recollection, there were only a few games starting to...

Take away the mustache and rename him Jim, and everyone would change their scores to 9's.

Re: Console Holiday 2017 Shopping Guide

Does anyone have any advice on whether to get a Switch or a New 3DS? For the Switch there's Mario. For the New 3DS there's Zelda A Link Between Worlds and Sega's 3D Classics Collection. I've already played Zelda on the Wii U so that's not a major reason for me to pick up a Switch for Christmas. I h...

Re: Console Holiday 2017 Shopping Guide

Good stuff; always good to hear your thoughts on the consoles. I only have the PS4 now, but I could see myself getting a Switch within the next year. While the 360 was a great console, I have no interest in the Xbox One at the moment. While on the topic of Christmas... Tonight I just read a review o...

Re: 2017/11/12: Playstation 4: Undertale

Woah woah woah. Big thanks to eneuman96! Certainly for the review itself, but equally so for pointing out that this game is on the PS4. I did not know. I'm going to take this life-altering information and go download the game ASAP. Undertale has been on my radar since it came out for PC in 2015. I d...

Re: Got me a SWITCH!

Where did you find one? I think they've been popping up pretty consistently now, especially in the past couple months. Lately you can even find them on Amazon, direct from Amazon for the usual $300 price. Seems like they've finally got enough stock, though we'll see if that holds up through the hol...

Re: Changing too much or too little?

This topic could spur me into one of my anti-Zelda rants, but I'll spare you all! I think you always hope a sequel strikes a balance between keeping what made you like the original, and adding enough new to keep you coming back. These days, my gaming time is very limited, and once I start a game I l...

Re: Bad news for Switch players.

I LOVED Cybermorph. :shock: :shock: :shock: One of the most dreadful looking and pointless 3D games I can think of! I vaguely remember it -- aimlessly flying around, collecting orbs, seeing only 5 feet in front of my ship, and running into mountains over and over. Like pacman000, I'd be pretty inte...

Re: Tony Hawk series

Update: I'm an idiot and already own Tony Hawk Underground for PS2... Just found it in my stack of disc only PS2 games. Based on the $1 sticker on it, looks like I probably snagged it from a flea market or convention within the last few years. Have too much junk and didn't even realize I already had...
