Re: Book review: Art of Atari

I really enjoyed this book too, and second the recommendation, even for gamers who aren't big Atari fans. Your review makes a great point about how the box art set the tone for the games. Even with the rudimentary Atari graphics, all it took was great box art and a little imagination and you could p...

Re: 2017/11/19: Nintendo Switch: Sine Mora EX, Super Mario Odyssey

Lol. Galaxy is like 10 years old. Let it go dude. Lol. And of course reviews are subjective. Don’t take it so personally. Haha, no way.. "Curse you Super Mario Galaxy!" will be my last words when I go, no matter what you say. But fair enough, to a degree... Although I don't know about all...

Re: 2017/11/19: Nintendo Switch: Sine Mora EX, Super Mario Odyssey

Is it possible to disagree with a review without ever playing the game?? Just kidding... I know I've probably been annoying with my hate for all the "A+", "10 out of 10", "best game ever" reviews for Super Mario Odyssey, despite not personally playing the game.. sorry a...

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...
