Re: 2017/11/10: Nintendo 3DS: Metroid: Samus Returns

When you say the d-pad doesn’t work it sort of gives the impression the developers just arbitrarily didn’t allow the d-pad to be used. But there are 4 powers that are mapped to the d-pad buttons, so they really didn’t have enough buttons to give that option. That seems like it could be more clear in...

Re: Good Computer?

I personally think that buying a computer with a ton of hard drive space (that one has 2TB) is a huge ripoff. Hard drive space is easily upgradable, even if you don't want to open up the pc you can get an external hard drive for cheap, and it's overpriced when you buy it included with the PC. I boug...

Re: Retron 5 Review

I've never paid these systems any attention, due to owning the original consoles. But I think you're review might have won me over.. You point out some good advantages--the biggest (for me) being the ability to stick this in the family room as one consolidated retro console. Despite having a game r...

Re: Sonic Mania

I loved his game and I had no problem whatsoever with the remixed zones. I was always excited to see what twists they added to them. Personally I don't have a ton of nostalgia for Sonic CD though so I would have far preferred another remixed Donic 1 or 2 stage instead of 2 Sonic CD stages, but that'...

Re: Bugs Bunny Double Trouble (Genesis)

I know you didn't ask me, but I think Bugs Bunny: Double Trouble is much worse than Taz Mania.

Re: X-Kaliber 2097 on Retron 5

Try setting the region manually. I had an issue once where it was defaulting the region to Japan for a Genesis game. I don't know if your issue could be caused by that but it's worth a try.

Lots of good suggestions here but this one is the top. It's one of the top 10 N64 games and one of the most unique games I've ever played. I've played very few games that match its creativity in game design.

Re: Going to Tokyo -Suggestions?

Thanks everyone! I read a bit about Akihabara and definitely plan on spending some time there. I was thinking I would budget one or two hundred hundred bucks to spend on old games/systems. I don't particularly have a use for most old Japanese systems since I have a retron 5 and a Saturn that can pla...

Re: Mario vs Donkey Kong Country

Mario and I don't think it's close. Donkey Kong Country is great but the 2d Mario games are among the best games of all time. I probably would only find room for Donkey Kong Country 2 in a list of he top 100 games of all time (if it even made it), whereas that list would have Mario 1, 3 and World.
