Stupidest Anti-Gaming Accusations?

When I was eight years old, I rented Wizards and Warriors for the NES. My mom made me return it immediately. She said that she watched an episode of Donahue that focused on the satanic elements of that game! Funny, that I've never heard of any controversy surrounding that game!

Killer Apps that weren't

I bought my Wii U the day that it came out. I didn't buy it for New Super Mario U, but rather NintendoLand. That game sealed it for me, and I loved it! The Donkey Kong game sucked away an insane amount of my time! This should have sold people on the system, but it didn't. No game for the system has ...

James and Mike Mondays

As weird as it may be, AVGN is the thing that I like least about Cinemassacre/James Rolfe. I liked the early episodes, but he's gotten way out of hand with creating stories out of the episodes, along with distracting special effects. I love Board James, You Know What's Bull****, and James and Mike M...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

Jon, the answer to your question is simple: "OMG! 4 PLAYER MARIO BROTHERS!" It tickled the nostalgia bone of every parent who grew up with 2D Mario. Also, kids could buy the game and play with their friends. Rest assured that, without that ace in the hole, it would have likely moved Mario Galaxy num...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

Okay, here's something for you to chew on: -Rayman Origins=2D and tanked -Rayman Legends=2D and tanked. -New Super Mario Bros U=did nothing to make the Wii U a runaway success. -Sonic 4: sales apparently weren't great enough to warrant a physical release. Also, Sonic's 3D outings eclipsed them, if I...

The Twisted Farce that is the Evolution of 2d

[QUOTE=Jon]It's appalling how you guys disregard facts I present and make up your own stories. <span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>First off, no one has been able to explain why advanced 2d technology was squashed in 1993 to keep Sega's and Nintendo's primitive systems on top of the in...

The Derailment of the 3d Genre

[QUOTE=JWK][QUOTE=Atarifever][QUOTE=JWK] Olto has finished this discussion, Jon. The ps1 doesn't need defending. The end. [/QUOTE]<br /><br />Maybe not against the Jaguar.  Against every major 8 bit system, 16 bit system, the Saturn, and every major system that followed the PS1 generation, it s...

Plug-n-Play SNES?

You'll notice that the only companies who do these plug-and-plays are not the manufacturers of hardware. Sega hasn't released a new system in sixteen years, Atari has been out of the game for twenty, etc. It wouldn't make sense for Nintendo to compete with themselves. Also, even if they were to, you...

What systems and how about a game trading blog on VGC?

I have a loose cart of Castlevania Legends for Gameboy that I would gladly trade for $40 in eshop points! Lol

New Bloodborne video!

Critic, I thought that this would be an appropriate thread to ask the question that in sure a few regulars have also wanted to ask: why on earth haven't you reviewed Demon/Dark Souls yet? They contained, at least in my humble opinion, some of last gen's most memorable gameplay moments!
