Have you tried it yet? As mentioned in my post above, would be interested in any thoughts on it.

Re: Early to Mid 1995

I keep thinking about this time. I haven't really kept any of my old magazines but when I look at old Gamepro magazines on the internet it gets me so excited. In fact, I always remembered SWAT Pro which also had cool stuff. I loved all the uncertainty. It was so exciting to talk about the Ultra 64 ...

Re: 2018/2/18: Playstation: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII

On the FF8 romance, I fall somewhere between ptdebate and PixelatedGenocide. To me, back when I played it in the late 90s, the romance aspect of the story was not all that interesting. But, the fact that there was a romance aspect to the story was what amazed me back then. Today, video games have go...

Re: 2018/2/18: Playstation: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII

The 2D backgrounds in FF7 are works of art, so it's easy to excuse the simplistic polygons on top of them. Same thought here. The character models are very crude by today's standards, but most of the "graphics" in the game are actually pre-rendered backgrounds (like the early Resident Evi...

Re: 2018/2/18: Playstation: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII

Very happy to see these reviews finally on the site. If my username and avatar don't give it away, I'm a huge fan of FF7 and the FF series in general. To me, even setting aside my bias, the lack of a FF7 review has always been the biggest omission from the site here. It's easy to take the game for g...

Re: Super Retrocade Review

Savage, isn't it possible that you just got a bad unit? Since the problem seems unusual, might be worth trying an exchange, just in case.

Re: Times the VGC steered you right... or wrong

-Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 (Wii) - I felt burned by Super Mario Sunshine and was ready to give up on 3D Mario. The rave reviews around the internet for these games got me rethinking that, and then your reviews pushed me over the fence. I played and beat both of these games, but always felt like ...

Re: What Remains of Edith Finch (PS4, XB1, PC)

I just completed The Unfinished Swan, which is loosely related to Edith Finch, so I figured I'd add that to this topic. Unfinished Swan is a download-only title that came out for PS3 in 2012, and re-released for PS4 in 2014. Why did I buy the game? Three reasons. (1) I saw it on sale for $3 in the P...

This War of Mine (PS4, Xbox One, PC)

Just finished a couple playthroughs of This War of Mine , which is on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Really good game. It's like The Sims, but set during civil war in an imaginary foreign country. Unlike all other war games, which are always about soldiers killing enemies, this game is just about being a re...

Re: Playstation One: Jewel or long boxes?

The only issue I've had with my long boxes is that, over time, the cover image on the front and backs of the cases has tended to come unglued around the corners. i attribute it mostly to the damp Oregon climate where I live, but I've had a few games, Darkstalkers included, where I've had to gently ...
