Re: I really dig the Switch with its portability

I don’t have a Switch, but I still agree with your point. I purchased my first portable console last year—a 2DS—and I LOVED being able to play games not attached to the TV. Especially with a family, I could play discreetly without drawing everyone’s attention. It ended up being too hard on my hands,...

Re: My declining interest in modern video games.

My issues: Time—Because I tend to play in 30 minute spurts, so a lot of the bigger/epic games aren’t appealing to me because I don’t want to waste time watching a 20 minute cutscene. Online—I agree, online CAN be ok, but still pales in comparison to playing with your buddies. Plus, there always issu...

Re: Best and Worst Console Designs

Well the critic has reviewed these consoles (and their controllers), so he has data to make a best and worst list pretty easily. One of my favorite things is the eject button on the SNES. Don’t think I used it once. Lol. I think the Wii, with its minimal design, backward compatibility, and built in ...

Re: Baseball in Decline?

I don't have cable, and don't live near a MLB team, so the best I can do is to watch a few of the televised minor-league games on the local station that plays them (Charlotte Knights games.) I do (usually) watch playoff and World Series games in the fall when they are on. I like watching baseball, ...

Re: The Room (Best movie ever)

One interesting fact: the only advertisement for the room was a billboard in Hollywood that stayed up for like 5 years.

The best critique of the room I read was: “it looks like aliens observed humans for 15 minutes and then decided to try to make a movie about them”.

Re: Can video games be adapted into good movies

I think it’s harder to nail down who your target audience is for video game movies. Gamers have a really wide age range, and the target audience for “regular” movies tends to be more defined.

Re: Baseball in Decline?

The answer is this: people do watch and enjoy baseball in all its glory WHEN THE GAMES MATTER. Lots of people tuned into the World Series, which had a compelling matchup and great games. I’m one of those that says the games feel too long, but I’ll gladly watch a 4 hour game when something is on the ...

Re: New Tomb Raider Movie!

Two words: Duane Johnson.

That dudes movies make lots of money, and he’s a great actor. IGN said that Rampage is indeed super dumb, but just entertaining enough to make you not hate it. Lol.
