Re: Do Joycons charge in Sleep mode?

The fact that I need to ask is really an indictment of the new industry mindset "let's save a few bucks by not providing a manual and let them hunt around for answers on the internet instead". Yeah I thought it was humorous that the Switch had no instructions other than small pictures on ...

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

Regarding the Wii U, when I look over the games, it's actually a system I could easily pick up and grab a dozen games for (which is very rare for me). I still might. So far a lot of the better Wii U games are being ported to the Switch. I just read today that Wonderful 101 is going to get a Switch ...

Re: Is Silent Hill HD Collection really that bad?

My issue with it is the controls. I'm too used to modern third person games that use a standard control scheme I found going back to the old style of SH2 was too frustrating and I didn't play it that much. It looked good though.

Re: Do Joycons charge in Sleep mode?

It does when the console is docked and in sleep mode. It doesn't appear to charge them in sleep mode if the console is not docked or otherwise plugged in.

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

I think the original Playstation is overrated. Ass 3D graphics, few 2D games, hasn't aged well at all. It was also too over-hyped. I was never a Playstation fan and it took them until the 4th iteration of the platform until they finally fixed the controller design. Also the PS1 was a terrible consol...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

It looks like some of the scalper auctions for pre-orders are already being shutdown by eBay. eBay should really put a stop to people selling pre-orders for an item that the seller doesn't have in hand and won't have in hand for at least 90 days. Not even just shutting down their auction, these scal...

Re: Why are MAME and raspberry pi units still a hobbyist item?

Because the UIs in MAME and EmulationStation (RetroPie) absolutely completely suck. They reek of hobbyist look-and-feel and not that of a more mature product. If you have to enter a old-school text-based screen to configure stuff then you automatically fail and that's a primo reason why this hobbyis...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

Not sure if I should be saying this, but I work in fraud prevention at the Walmart home office. Just recently they made the decision to no longer sell to bulk buyers or resellers, so you shouldn't have to worry about that on our end! How do they intend to enforce that? I can see them limiting one-p...

Re: Wrestling Game Reviews by Rockofhysteria

Wrestlemania 2000 also had a lot of slowdown when you did 4-player matches, I don't recall No Mercy being any faster or slower. Looking back at it over fifteen years later it feels like slow motion in 4P matches but back in the day it wasn't as bad as it seems to be now. One nicety that I always lik...
