Re: Cutscenes?

To add to your question, what about prerendered cutscenes versus real time custscenes?

I'd take real time any day!

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

I definitely do not think that the GameCube deserves its praise, but it is not a bad console in any regard. I am a huge Sega fan, and even I think the dreamcast is a little bit over rated (just a pinch). Underrated, I would say the Sega Saturn, Sega Master System are easily equals for most underrate...

Re: Random Pick-ups

Kind of off topic, but I am surprised from what you said. More retro stores are popping up? I was always under the impression that Amazon and Ebay were and still are king. Though the retro scene and therefore retro stores in Canada operate way differently from the states. If it isn't Nintendo it's a...

Re: Keep Politics out of video games

Sigh, I know it is easy to say "it depends" to everything ever, but I genuinely mean that when it comes to Media. I think there is a time and place, politics if a necessary angle of your game, be done in a tasteful and not obviously bitter way. I am a huge fan of history, and history does ...

Re: What Makes a Good RPG?

What makes something good is subjective but my opinion on the matter is: 1. Think outside the box. While the story can be similar others or may reference bits of culture you shouldn't make it the most important part. Your main story beat should always be original. Don't fall for typical tropes(an an...

Re: Games you like that everyone else hates?

Oh jeez, there are over a dozen RPGs released for the Computer that completely fell short but I can say I really enjoy them. I'm on board with a lot of what you folks have said, the overly ambitious titles that try to do things differently that fell a little short are certainly the ones I remember m...

Re: Retron 5 Death Grip?

I think it is safe to assume that the retron 5's problems are still very present, outside of the software department. Without going on a rant here I would just say be wary of your purchase, do the research etc. You're almost better off making a game gear raspberry pi emulator, which would be a littl...

Re: Playing Game Gear on TV

Although I am not a big fan of the Retron 5 if you already have it then by all means, right? Here's some cool links regarding Game Gear on television. I'm assuming you've already bumped into these websites but you never know! http://retrorgb.com/gamegearongenesis.html Talks about patching game gear ...

Re: 2017/6/4: Jaguar: Breakout 2000

Really big fan of your Jaguar reviews. Not many people are out there reviewing jaguar so it's fun to see current reviews. I'm a huge fan of the jaguar (flaws, history and all). Shame this one didn't pan out. I don't know how letter scores work for you, but to me a C is a 6/10 which means I would con...

Re: Atari Lynx and Sega Game Gear Portable reviews

Hey that's cool! Side note here: there's a pretty active modding community for the game gear. Somebody once made a game gear into a console. I personally have a game gear with a new screen and AV out ports to play on the television/capture gameplay. I wish I owned a nomad but I'm content with my Gen...
