Re: Review Wish List

I suppose The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (I'd recommend the DX colorized rerelease) is a major omission. I'm not sure I'd call it a wish, but I'm sure readers are disappointed at times when they open the Game Boy section and don't see a review for one of the more popular Zelda entries. Probab...

I found a six pack of 6" extension cords in the hardware section of Wal-Mart yesterday. Thanks, I didn't realize these even existed.

Re: 2018/1/11: Playstation 4: Dirt 4, Yooka Laylee

With Dirt 1, I was disappointed that rally racing was downgraded from being the focus and with the experience simplified. But despite the limitations, I happily got all 1000 achievement points and had a great 20 hours or so with it. Dirt 2 though, Codemasters went all-in on trying to appeal to peopl...

Re: Super Retro-Cade (Retrobit)

They sadly got the 3:4 arcade ratio messed up for the vertical games. Going to "original size" in the screen settings for Air Duel for example, yields a very thin picture that's not nearly wide enough when it's supposed to look like a 90 degree rotated 4:3 display. It should look like this...

Re: Doing it wrong?

This part in Super Mario World. https://youtu.be/htFJTiVH5Ao?t=1h2m55s I always used to do it the hard way. I'd fly with the cape and stay above the screen safe from enemies, drop down at the last second before the main exit to fly under it, and then quickly try to regain some altitude so I could ge...

Re: Dirt 4 (PS4)

I assume you feel that way since they all but left rally racing behind with Dirt 2 and Dirt 3, where as it was still the primary focus with Dirt 1. If so, I suggest you reconsider Dirt 4. It's a return to a rally racing focused mainstream Dirt title, with the usual arcade style physics that Dirt is ...

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary

Critic, if you want the best d-pad for the Nintendo Switch, please try getting the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Pro Controller as that is the definitive version of the Nintendo Switch d-pad and should be way more comfortable then the digital pad on the joy-cons. You can get it at best buy the store or on...

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary

What's wrong with the d-pad on the Pro Controller? If you don't have that, you probably should pick it up since it's a favorite of many Switch owners when playing on their television. And if you don't like that, there are multiple alternatives like the Hori pad, various 8BitDo controllers like their...

Re: Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

I still love Super Mario 64 and replay it regularly. The game still controls beautifully, the worlds are interesting and varied, the music is great, etc. And if you fire it up on the Wii or Wii U Virtual Console, it can even still look good. The game is rendered in 480p versus 240p on the original h...
