Re: Confess Your Unpopular Video Game Opinions

I'm going to take some heat for my list: 1). I find most diehard Nintendo fans to be annoying with their nonstop rationalizing of every dopey Nintendo blunder. 2). I am convinced that the DS is the best system, game for game, that Nintendo has ever released. This, however, is coming from a retro ent...

Re: Will Sega Ever Release Another Console?

I like the idea of Sega releasing a non-competitive console on the cheap! The majority of their franchises don't rely on cutting edge technology, and enough people still buy Sonic to make it somewhat of a killer app for the system. Rewind the clock to 1989. They had next to no third party support, s...

Re: Nintendo NX Update

I'm with Bluenote. I've been very skeptical about it, over the past several months, but they actually delivered something that I think has the potential to be huge! I love that it takes what was great about the gamepad and turned it into something that gamers would actually want! This may be the lea...

Re: Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

Okay, I think that I'm writing this more out of frustration than anything else. The latest rumors that are annoying me, to no end, are the constant "Nintendo set to unveil the NX this week.....wait, no. NEXT week!" This is one of those strange situations where I'm annoyed at all parties. I...

Re: Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

When I look at my Google News there's always an article or two about the "latest NX Specs and release date" but it's always just the same old rumors and speculation that have been tossed around the last three months or so. Click bait is what it is. The internet sucks (except for this site...

Games That You've Beaten in 2016

Tonight, I finally finished a game that I have wanted to beat for over twenty-five years, and that game is Robo Warrior for nes (strangely, an old game that actually gets EASIER in later levels!). I always tend to keep track of the games that I beat, by year. So far, I have beaten the following game...

Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

Okay, like so many people I am very curious about codename NX (which, I believe, will end up being officially named the Nintendo Go). However, there is one rumor, that started just a few days ago, that listed the price at $450-500. For whatever reason, this rumor made me shake my head because it's i...

Re: Halloween Gaming

I'm personally excited about the upcoming Friday the 13th game! It looks like it has the potential to be a lot of fun, and seems very authentic to the source material! I love how they even had Kane Hodder come in to do the motion capturing! Besides Friday the 13th, I'm gearing up for my third playth...

Re: Nintendo NX Update

Nintendo would be stupid to launch the NX in March. They've done such a lousy job of hyping it, and they're giving people no time to decide on whether or not the system is worth their time/investment. I also think it's ridiculous that they didn't use E3 or TGS to show it off. The Directs are okay bu...

Re: Am I the only one who thinks that the Neo/Scorpio is a terrible idea?

To me, it seems suspiciously like what the 32X was supposed to be, before Sega beefed it up. Originally, it was supposed to be a souped up Sega Genesis with a wider color palette. The upper brass thought that was a horrible idea, as you were offering the same exact games and little else. It's alread...
