Killer Apps that weren't

First let me say that I totally agree about Nintendoland, except for me and my sons it was the mini Pikmin game that we spent endless hours on. That game alone made the system worth it to me. As far as the Wii U goes, my only guess is that Nintendo bet heavily on the system thriving purely on its na...

2015/3/21: NES: Balloon Fight, Al Unser Jr. Turbo Racing, Batman

[QUOTE=videogamecritic]Paul,<br />I think I can explain a few of the points.<br /><br />The problem with falling off a block and kicking off the side is that you don't know you CAN do it.  At one point I kept trying to jump a gap normally, and I think I discovered the kick off the side thing by...

2015/3/13: Sega Master System: Penguin Land, Golvellius: Valley of Doom, Aerial Assault

[QUOTE=stika]I'm frankly shocked at golvellius' score. I think it's an amazing game and I only discovered it like 5 years ago. I think it's on par with the original Legend of Zelda and even surpasses it in some ways (Especially if you use FM sound)[/QUOTE] You have got to be kidding me. I just spent...

Odd sentence in Ristar review

I agree. This sounds more like the opening line to a review of a current retro-themed game... Not a game released a few years after the game it "hearkens back" to...

2015/3/21: NES: Balloon Fight, Al Unser Jr. Turbo Racing, Batman

This is one of those reviews where I completely disagree with the grade but I can't tell which of the positives and negatives you mentioned are actually effecting the grade itself, or are just worth mentioning, and when it's on a game that I think is one of the best on the system, I can't help but f...

Nintendo coming to mobile devices?

I just came here to post a topic about this, so I'm glad you beat me to the punch. I also have mixed feelings. On the one hand, Nintendo can always benefit from tapping into such a huge market. On the other, I kind of like the exclusivity of Nintendo. I don't want to see the characters and games was...

Will having a really strong password on my PSN account prevent this from happening to me?

https://www.yahoo.com/games/news/sony-wont-refund-ps4-user-163400893.html This story makes me nervous. Not only does Sony only refund the user a fraction of the most effective he lost, but they only refund do it in PSN credit, AND if he puts up any kind of fuss with his bank, his account is wiped in...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

THAT'S one of the most preposterous statements you've ever heard in your life?  You don't get out much...<br /><br />I am really not interested in this discussion as I think its time has passed and we obviously have some amazing looking 2D games out there in the last couple generations that mak...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

First of all let me say that "Jon's" writing style and argumentative nature seems oddly familiar to someone who has been on these forums a long time... not to mention his desire to make a big fat throbbing something out of nothing.<br /><br />Second, maybe "Jon's" age would help us better understand...
