Re: Rampage: The Movie

Actually....I'm game for this. I agree on Battleship movie. What's worse is I have a Battleship video game based on the movie. Why? But Rampage - I am there with my large soda and popcorn. Its got the Rock, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Manu Bennett, so its got some good fun action stars right there....

Re: Battlefront 2 micro transactions Cancelled for realease!

This change did not include a large-scale overhaul of the rate at which players earn unlockable content, it just removed the ability to jump ahead by spending money. It only did so temporarily, as EA promised microtransactions would return in the future after the game had been fixed. This is from a...

Re: Kiosks

Cool to see. Not cool that the thread opens up with 'how much does this go for?'.

Re: Online Gaming is a mess

Thanks for posting that Ars Technica article I was a big fan of the Lucasarts Pandemic games. In single player, you would level up - make so many head shots and earn a better rifle that made head shots even easier kind of thing. I think online, everyone was back on an even playing field. I didn't pl...

Re: This video is a must watch that exposes modern gaming shady trends!

Update: Star Wars Battlefront II has gotten positive reviews from critics, but is universally panned by users on Metacritic Interesting. I think there is just a fundamental difference with critics and users on all sorts of things. I just got a new smartphone, but I find critic reviews not all that ...

Re: Kiosks

$25 for the cart and $10 per game was totally reasonable. I believe I paid about $40 in that generation for many games. If I could have gotten the rewritable instead, it's a good deal relatively speaking. I too like the kiosk idea. Modems were pretty niche in 83, especially if you got an extra phone...

Re: Kiosks

Wow - that is something very different. A kiosk to burn a new game to an EPROM cartridge. In the 2nd generation, games were both very expensive (to me, at least) and often an unknown quantity. You had screenshots on the back of the box and very little else to tell you about the game. Buying a game f...

Re: Kiosks

In 1983, the arcades are in full swing, and there are lots of excellent arcade games for people to play. The only attraction here is that the idea is for a 5200 bar top playing Real Sports Baseball - which is a game the Critic has as his favorite baseball game of the 2nd generation. A professional v...
