Re: Great article...

Very cool. And I agree. When I see an “epic” games that takes tons of time to complete or tons of time to get skilled at (for online play), I have no interest in it. I grew up in an era when you could beat games in one sitting, and playing in 20-45 minute bursts is this most natural for me. Some of ...

Re: Thai Soccer Team

Yes, I’ve been following. The situation seems so scary, but I’m glad to see people coming together to think of some ideas the minimize the dangers. I’m a good swimming, but just the thought of having to dive in those conditions is terrifying. I feel like sedating them, and transporting them back in ...

Re: AVGN: Ready 4 Revenge (Blu Ray)

Big AVGN fan here. What’s interesting is that if you watch any of his behind the scenes stuff or older bio-documentaries, you realize that he’s super laid back and just loves making movies. He likes movies more than video games, but AVGN became his avenue for being able to make videos for a living. ...

Re: NES Classic Impressions

After my Best Buy waiting line experience, I vowed to never do that again. I ended getting one from GameStop online months later. But, aside from SMB2&3, and Ninja Gaiden, I never played it. Truth is, the SNES is the system I did most of my gaming on. I plan to borrow a SNES Classic soon, and th...

Re: Mario Tennis Aces

Is there a “no gimmicks” mode for online play? *by the way, I’m also a gamer dad who plays in 20-30 minute bursts. Most platformers are good for this, as well as racers (like Mario Kart). Our primary console is a Wii, but I got a lot of use out of my 2DS for this reason alone—easier to play while ki...

Re: Atari VCS is a scam!

I remember watching the video and thinking it was weird that they spent sooo much time talking about the design of the console asthetics itself, rather than games and features. Like I said, if they added an ability to play online multiplayer to the classic Atari games, that would be worth trying. Ot...

Re: Compulsive video gaming = mental health condition?

Yeah, before “playing with friends” meant playing in the same room with your buddies, which you can’t do 24 hours/day. Now, with online gaming, there is someone available to play with 24 hours/day. But, I feel that these are 1/10th as satisfying as the in room experience. I think it’s a problem if i...

Re: Jurassic World

Eh, my favorite type of people—those that aren’t glad to share knowledge, but instead are annoyed that you don’t already know it. Just joking...kind of. I got my Sherlock Holmes collection last year, and had very little hopes of enjoying it. But I’m halfway through, and it’s one of my favorite liter...

Re: Jurassic World

For better or worse I'll. Always compare the first two to they're respective books. After getting the original book at my school book fair in the 6th grade and falling in love with it I was incredibly excited seeing it was being made into a movie. My grandparents took me to the see it and I remembe...

Re: Jurassic World

Yep, love JP and it’s amazing how well the original has aged. I would say Part 2 was awful. It loses a star just on that horrendous gymnastics routine scene. Part 3 was okay. I enjoyed it. That birdcage moment was great. I thought World 1 was the best since the original. Pratt was a good choice I th...
