Re: MLB: The show 18

Hey, if MLB is going to start cloning players, maybe they can bring back a young Andre Dawson to replace Heyward for the Cubs! Heh. If only! Remember that insurance commercial from a few years ago? It think it was for State Farm. Kerry Wood is walking along the ivy at the outfield wall, pulling jun...

Re: VGC Pro Nintendo?

Nah, not your fault Nintendo produces awesome games and you grade them accordingly. This. At least, this is true at the current moment. If nothing else, my time spent on this site has shown me that, if The Critic is "pro" anything, he's pro good games. If he plays a game and enjoys it, he...

Re: Confess Your Unpopular Video Game Opinions

3. Super Smash Brothers... I will probably get killed for this one but I have never got "it" from playing this game like so many others. To me its an underwhelming fighting game with NES heroes pasted on. You're my hero :-D I've got plenty more to add to this conversation at some point, b...

Re: Finally got a Switch!

How is that one? I've never played a Shovel Knight game in my life (shame on me, I know, I know...) but I've wanted to take the plunge for a while now. Is it the first game with a bunch of bonus content, or something completely different? There are no sequels, but there are two expansions so far, w...

As a lifelong Cubs fan, the last thing I needed was yet another shot of Mark Grace sulking on the bench after a wasted season. Loved that guy to death, but man, he hardly ever had a team around him in Chicago. Glad h...

Re: Cats like this icon idea?

I am all for this! I think it could be similar to the "Chicks Dig This" icon that's already in place. You could have some serious fun with it, too. I'd label it something like "Cats Dig This?" or " Cats Dig This???" My wife has taken a ton of snapshots over the years of...

Re: Playstation One: Jewel or long boxes?

The only issue I've had with my long boxes is that, over time, the cover image on the front and backs of the cases has tended to come unglued around the corners. i attribute it mostly to the damp Oregon climate where I live, but I've had a few games, Darkstalkers included, where I've had to gently ...

Re: Playstation One: Jewel or long boxes?

Fantastic post Matchstick. Thanks for taking the time to write it. You put a lot of heart into that post. Bravo! There were actually several iterators of the Playstation longbox before they switched over. Thanks, Critic. I didn't mean to "write a book" with that last post, but once I got ...

Re: Playstation One: Jewel or long boxes?

Long boxes all the way! As the Critic mentioned in one of his older reviews, one of his friends years ago preferred when his games came in a bigger box or a larger package, as it made him feel like he "got more for his money." Sony, Sega, and 3DO all had large boxes for their games when th...
