Stupidest Anti-Gaming Accusations?

[QUOTE=DaHeckIzDat]A whole hour? Lucky!  Haha, my parents limited me to 30 minutes a day.  Yeah, try making any serious progress in Final Fantasy in half an hour.  More often than not, the timer went off in the middle of a cutscene (right after a really hard boss fight, too), and off ...

Stupidest Anti-Gaming Accusations?

When I was young my dad used to think playing games would ruin my eyesight (don't know what sort of games he thought I was playing!). So for a while he restricted my playing time to just over an hour. Problem was I had a ZX Spectrum at the time and some of the more complex 128k games could take 10-1...

Kojima possibly leaving Konami

Doesn't this happen after every Metal Gear release since number 2 ? I think be must put that much of himself into these games that he's just fed up and exhausted once it gets to release. I don't think Metal Gear would ever be the same without Kojima but that's not to say that's a bad thing as the OP...

Guardians of the Galaxy (NES)

I certainly can't remember ever seeing it, but I was never into NES anyway. GameFAQs and Moby Games don't seem to have anything either so it's either an unpopular title or I've just spent 5 minutes googling an Aprils Fool joke ! If so, hook, line, sinker and a copy of the angling times my friend I f...

Atari Anthology (PS2)

[QUOTE=Leo]What did you think of the higher numbered games in Asteroids (Specifically, how asteroids suddenly gain some horizontal movement in, I think, even numbered games)? That made a huge difference as a kid when I discovered that. When optimally set up, I think this is one of the console's best...

Atari Anthology (PS2)

Asteroids (2600) - A This is great ! Big thanks to Leo for pointing out about enabling the saucers it does add much to the gameplay. It may not look like the original but Atari nailed the playability. Also oddly, I prefer playing the game in a dark room (is that just me ?). Excellent conversion, abs...

Intimidated/overwhelmed by modern games

I was just discussing this with a friend, modern games are massive and don't want to let you go. It's took me almost 18 months to Platinum Killzone Shadow Fall and that's not including any DLC, I'm currently playing GTA V and that's also an absolute time sink both single player and the online compon...

Standby modes suck up energy

[QUOTE=ptdebate]I'd rather my Xbox waste a few cents of my money than waste my time. That's just my opinion on this subject.[/QUOTE] I will echo this, my game time is limited to 60 min - 90 min sessions the last thing I want to be doing is wasting time waiting for updates. And after all time is mone...

Looking back on the 7th Generation: PS3 vs. XBox 360 vs. Wii

I think the Wii suffers in reputation due to the amount of 'family friendly - me too' shovelware and a earlier demise than both the 360 and PS3. But the Wii does have some great titles, I think the Wii's mid tier games are worse than the PS3/360. The reason I don't rate the Wii as highly as the othe...

Rate the site!

What I really like about the site is the short reviews, I can get a feel for any given systems library within a couple of minutes. It's easy to navigate, clutter free, fast and has a good retro vibe. My only (personal) negative is the modern game reviews. Your reviews for older systems generally are...
