Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

I was actually very impressed! The new MARIO looks great, as does Zelda! Arms looks like a lot of fun, and I'm excited about Ultra Street Fighter 2 and Skyrim on the go! However, I will not be buying it at launch! I've been burned one time too many to be an early adopter. I'm giving them a year. I w...

Wait, when did Batman and Robin become rare?? I paid $5 for it in 2005, and I sold it for $20 in 2013!

Re: Christmas Loot

I didn't get much in the way of gaming: a $20 eshop card and that was it. Other than that, I got the Camelbak that I really wanted, along with a new hair dryer, an electric grill, and a knife. I may spend some of my own money on the Bioshock Collection.

Games that you've beaten in 2016

I try to do this every year, since I'm always interested to read which games people saw all the way through. Mine include: -Fallout 4 -Dark Souls 3 -Uncharted 4 -GTA 5 -Robo Warrior (NES) -River City Tokyo Rumble (3DS) Though my list is somewhat small, a few of those games were ridiculously large in...

Re: 2016/12/20: Playstation 4: Atari Flashback Classics Vol. 1, Atari Flashback Classics Vol. 2

I've said it before, and I'll keep saying that these compilations are the definition of missed opportunity. With the insane amount of space available on a PS4/XB0 disk, why would they not go all out and offer a comprehensive history of Atari? Why not include lost gems from the Atari ST, 7800, Lynx, ...

Re: Why did you go back?

For me, a big part of the love for retro gaming is pushing the power button, pushing start, and being able to jump into the game in a matter of seconds. I don't know whose bright idea it was to replace that with minutes of intro screens, but it's one of the things that I hate most about modern gamin...

Re: Great Moments in Gaming

A few big ones, all of them from Final Fantasy VI: -the mode 7 intro where you're walking through the snow-covered landscape as the opening credits roll. -the "end of the earth," waking up a year later as Celes is on a deserted island with Cid. -the end credits. Who would have thought that...

Re: Favorite "Guilty Pleasure" Video Game

I'll never understand the hatred for Friday the 13th (NES). It's actually one of my favorite games for the system: it controls well enough, has great atmosphere, creepy music, and is very unique! People complain about the rock, which you only have as a weapon for the first minute until you upgrade t...
