Re: Forsaken 64

Playing this again, and after further review, I think it's a bad game. The maze like stages are awfully designed, you can't tell where you're supposed to go, the save system is god awful, and the chest system only lets you use one cheat. But the worst part is starting up the game. It takes TWO MINUT...

I'll list some Rage Against the Machine-self titled Daft Punk-Random Access Memories Anything by Vampire Weekend Most of Radiohead's catalog, especially OK Computer and Kid A P...

It's also quotable as hell too. "Onett police are infamous for closing roads if something is going on. We are going for the world record." Makes me burst out laughing every time I see that quote.

Re: Loudness Wars?

From what I've researched, many people agree the "loudness" war peaked in the mid 2000s. I do agree that it's gotten a bit better, though I'm disappointed bands like Arcade Fire haven't expanded dynamically. The Suburbs is brickwalled throughout, which sucks because the music is incredible...

Re: Loudness Wars?

I remember reading about this for the first time more than ten years ago. The article said that Arctic Monkeys' debut album(which I love) was a good example of little range in volume, compared with Nevermind from fifteen years earlier. Did that happen to be from Alan Wilder of Depeche Mode fame? He...

RPGs for people who aren't fans of the genre?

Straightforward. If you were an RPG buff, which games would people who aren't RPG fans enjoy?

Chrono Trigger
Paper Mario or Mario and Luigi series
Fire Emblem Awakening
Maple Story (PC)

Loudness Wars?

For anyone not aware, "Loudness Wars" is a term used in music describing the increased focus on loud volume in music. In other words: Quiet parts sound loud and "loud" parts don't sound any louder than the quiet parts. Cases started showing up in the early 90s and were really wid...

Re: Top 10 Best Games You Played That the VGC didn't review (yet)...

I'm surprised the VGC hasn't reviewed Pokemon Snap yet considering it's a very easy and fun game to get into. Don't even have to be a Pokemon fan to enjoy it. Kirby 64 is another one. Pretty good game that's better than most Kirby games because of the scenic variety and the kickass combo powerup sys...

Tony Romo retires from the NFL

A lot of people make Tony Romo the butt of jokes, but he was always one of my favorite players from any sport, and I thought he was a great QB. 2014 was one of the finest quarterbacked seasons I've ever seen. He offered a quick release, amazing pocket play, insane mobility, and a rocket of an arm. W...

I agree that a save feature should've been added, but I think the game sort of makes up for it with the stage select cheat.
