Re: Humble Bundle

I'd noticed it becoming a store a long time ago, so I assumed this was the direction they were going anyway. That said, I have become less and less enamored of IGN this year and I don't see this as a step in the right direction for them.

Re: A game I can "sink my teeth into"

I always look for games like this too. I get jealous of players who seem to be deeply involved in games for dozens or hundreds of hours, never getting bored of the same game, playing through multiple times, upgrading and re-reolling characters, etc. Then I buy a game I think I'll be like that with, ...

Re: A Boy and His Blob (Wii) – Charm Offensive

What an absolutely fantastic review! I watched the video and immediately subscribed. This one just showed up at my local game store (for $12.99 or something) and it looks like I should pick it up. Until now, I hadn't watched much about it. Am I the only one who thinks it looks to have a lot (a lot) ...

Re: Set up console before christmas

and a Wii U. Not as good as the instantaneous functionality of earlier consoles, but I have a hard time understanding how it could take 2 hours.. Apparently we had very different experiences with this one. My Wii U first day was completely wasted with updates, account setup issues, and then game up...

Re: Got me a SWITCH!

My issue is that young kids are still developing a concept for concrete awareness and to expose them to something as abstract as video games before they’re developmentally ready is not healthy. There are PLENTY of other ways to keep them busy and help them learn and grow besides TV and video games....

Re: Got me a SWITCH!

Also I’m kind of surprised at all the parents who let their young kids play. Maybe it’s the 36 year old papaw in me, but 3 and 5 year’s old seems WAY to young to get into video games. I work with kids (specifically developmentally delayed kids and kids with autism), and I have to say, other than a ...

Re: iPhone X

I have an LG flip phone from work (they will eventually force me to take an upgrade, but haven't pushed it on me yet luckily) and no other cell phone. I was really into Blackberry for awhile, but got out of that and the entire Smartphone scene because of what it made me feel like. My wife is out now...

Re: Alien Colonial Marines (PS3)

I remember when this was released there was an uproar. Sega must have really built up this game because people were really disappointed. Now that the game is dirt cheap I decided to see what the deal is. So far it's not bad! It's no prize but the campaign is pretty intense. I'm looking forward to t...

Re: 2017/11/12: Playstation 4: Undertale

This review and the comments here (and in the review crew section) are really making me interested in this one. I had no idea I wanted to play this, but it sounds like maybe I'm missing out. Great review.

Re: Got me a SWITCH!

They're always available at the Wal-Mart here, and have been for a couple months. I have a theory on some moves Nintendo made time-wise with the Switch to get to have their cake and eat it too. First, releasing it in March let them have their "shortage" stories they like to have at a conso...
