Re: RIP Phife Dawg

Sorry to hear this, although I've been out of the loop with these guys for awhile. I'm pretty sure that Midnight Marauders was the first rap/hip-hop album I ever bought, and I got it based on the strength of "Award Tour". I later picked up The Low-End Theory but I haven't listened to eith...

Favorite Baseball Games

As a big fan of the Cleveland Indians, I'm excited for opening day to get here, and as such, I'm getting into the spirit by playing some baseball games. Which brings us to today; What are your favorite baseball games? Bottom of the 9th (N64): As far as I know, this is exclusive to the Nintendo 64, h...

RIP Phife Dawg

Legendary rapper from A Tribe Called Quest, one of my favorite hip hop groups. Do me a favor and listen to his verse on "Award Tour."

So sad to hear about his passing. ATCQ affected me as much as 2Pac, Outkast, and Eminem did as far as hip hop music goes. :(

Re: Underrated N64 Games?

I'm currently reviewing Mickey's Speedway USA and I can't get over how good it is. Really? Wow. I've never played it so I can't give my opinion on it, but I've heard people compare it to Diddy Kong Racing (another Rare kart racer) unfavorably. I think that it came out without the adventure mode des...

Re: Streets of Rage & StarFox 64

Building on what JustLikeHeaven said, It's easy to see why many early 3D games were so popular in their time, but certain games don't age as well as we'd think because half of the time you're fiddling with the camera or getting overwhelmed by a huge amount of exploration. That's why Star Fox 64 is s...

Re: Underrated N64 Games?

It depends on what you mean by "haven't gotten the respect they deserve". For instance, I think that Space Station Silicon Valley is a hidden gem, but the game has a very solid reputation. Anywho, check a few of these out: Space Station Silicon Valley Blast Corps Body Harvest Mischief Mak...

Underrated N64 Games?

Hey guys, I'm looking for some N64 games that you personally think haven't gotten the respect they deserve. Basically, hidden gems to add to my N64 collection.

Any recommendations?

Re: Streets of Rage & StarFox 64

I enjoy the first Streets of Rage, even if I prefer the sequel. Good ole Genesis beat'em-up action. I can also attest Star Fox 64's greatness. The finest wine envies how well it's aged. At first it seems scripted (which it is), but if you're not paying attention, you'll miss loads of secrets, altern...

Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine (Genesis)

Wow. I don't think I can find a more addicting game ever, let alone in the puzzle genre. This is basically the American translation of Puyo Puyo, a popular puzzle game from Japan, but with Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog characters. I can't really describe it, but there's few moments in gaming as s...

Re: Is Sonic 2 the best Sonic Game?

Sonic 3 & Knuckles is definitely the best overall game IMO, but stand alone it's Sonic 2. Though Sonic 3 & Knuckles wipes away even some of the (extremely) minor flaws from Sonic 2 to deliver an ever better paced game. The game isn't as fast as Sonic 2, but I think it's for the better, as th...
