Re: is it worth it to buy the nintendo switch now ?

A few posters have mentioned indie games here. While Nintendo does a better job promoting them, most of the good indie games are already on PS4. The Switch has a few good indie exclusives (Golf Story comes to mind), but the PS4 has way more at the moment. I think most serious gamers would benefit fr...

Re: Sneak 'n Peak (Atari 2600)

Retro - your wife got this for you and you didn't make her play it with you?? You need to play it with her and report back! It's your civic responsibility! Could be some good review material in there. Took me long enough, but my wife and I finally got the chance to give this game a try. We played a...

Re: NBA 2K6 (Xbox)

The NBA 2K series has always been so finely-tuned that I bet these old editions still hold up very well. I remember playing it back on the Dreamcast and realizing that basketball video games would never be the same. I never played NBA 2K6, but I probably poured over 100 hours into NBA 2K9, which was...

Re: The Pinball Arcade (coming early 2012)

Are those on the disc too? Or is it mostly downloadable content? As a pinball fan, I was following this news too. I don't really like pinball in video game form (it feels nothing like the real thing), but Pinball Arcade is a nice way to experience some awesome machines that I haven't gotten to play ...

Re: Terrified of a Digital Future

Well, my first thought was, "Are some gamers really so dense that they don't realize these glaring weaknesses about a digital-only future?" He says it took him like 10 years to finally figure it out. Is it not instantly obvious that digital downloads means we will lose games forever? I hop...

Re: 2018/4/29: Game Boy Color: Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Well said Stalvern. While you said it better, I think we made some similar points - i.e., Zelda is a franchise that manages to make an emotional connection with gamers (much like Stars Wars does for movie goers) in a way that few other games ever have. If you're one of the gamers who has made that c...

Re: My declining interest in modern video games.

The "cartridges" of today (i.e., Switch carts) are not really fairly comparable to cartridges of yesteryear (i.e., NES, Genesis, N64, etc.). We shouldn't be treating them like they're the same thing. For anyone debating Switch carts vs. XONE/PS4 discs, I'm sure there's good arguments on bo...

Re: My declining interest in modern video games.

Wait a second.. I've heard all this before... is that you VGC??? J/k, but I get the sense that you'll fit in just fine around here. I'm sure most of us can relate. Growing up, I'd check gaming websites daily for all the latest news and was always planning months in advance for what future games I wa...

Re: 2018/4/29: Game Boy Color: Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Sorry I just don’t get the fuss. I’ve tried playing this game got stuck, bored and gave up. I’ve said it before I find it baffling how high North American based gamers rate Zelda. Of the Zelda games I’ve tried to play they have all left me feeling ‘meh’. Granted I’ve only tried the original, this a...

The Disney Afternoon Collection (PS4/XONE/PC) [DuckTales, TaleSpin, Rescue Rangers, and Darkwing Duck]

Heads up, this game is currently on sale for download in the Playstation Store for just $5.99 for PS+ members ($7.99 for non-members), discounted from its usual $19.99 price. I had never heard of this compilation until I saw it in the PS Store, but I'm glad I found it. Anyone in their late 20s to la...
