Re: Less Lag than original?

Would accomplishments in reduced lag emulation be considered cheating because of the change from the original console?

Re: Nintendo Ruined Video Games

Well there's a hot take, sure to stir up controversy. I only read page 1 of this 4 page article, but I presume that that's where the interesting part is anyway (I think the other 3 pages are all about the Wii U). While the author is vastly overgeneralizing -- and I really do not think video games w...

Both the Turbografx and Genesis use software scaling. Neither has support for hardware scaling of sprites.

Any smoother scaling in the TG16 ports is from better programming not better hardware support.

Re: 2018/3/22: Turbografx-16: Space Harrier, Turrican

In my opinion, when comparing Sega arcade games that used the System16/32 engine on the Genesis and Turbo, the TG/PC-Engine versions are always better IMO. I think a lot of it is because the Turbo had significantly better graphic scaling support than the Genesis (better music also). It's really evi...

Re: NES Classic Impressions

I sent the system back today to get a full refund. I can see the game the ebay seller is trying to play. Obviously there's a good chance the buyer won't notice it's a fake, and he'll make out like a bandit. When I told him it wanted a refund, he offered a 50% refund and let me keep the system. Obvi...

I guess I'll fifth that. We gotta get Critic to review Action 52! Action 52 is the worst game ever just because it originally retailed for $199. Imagine if your parents bought you Action 52 as a kid and then replied with "But you already have 52 games!" when you asked for any other games....

Re: 2018/3/12: Playstation 4: Mark McMorris Infinite Air

Actually I'd like to see you bump one of these games up half a letter grade or so based on their sole redeeming quality. Are you sure this game can't be given an F+ based entirely on the fact that the game has a nice looking label on the disk? Maybe the cursor moves fairly smooth when you give your...

If the game is also good then yes. Or you get something like Awesome Possum.
