Re: Changing too much or too little?

This topic could spur me into one of my anti-Zelda rants, but I'll spare you all! I think you always hope a sequel strikes a balance between keeping what made you like the original, and adding enough new to keep you coming back. These days, my gaming time is very limited, and once I start a game I l...

Re: Bad news for Switch players.

I LOVED Cybermorph. :shock: :shock: :shock: One of the most dreadful looking and pointless 3D games I can think of! I vaguely remember it -- aimlessly flying around, collecting orbs, seeing only 5 feet in front of my ship, and running into mountains over and over. Like pacman000, I'd be pretty inte...

Re: Tony Hawk series

Update: I'm an idiot and already own Tony Hawk Underground for PS2... Just found it in my stack of disc only PS2 games. Based on the $1 sticker on it, looks like I probably snagged it from a flea market or convention within the last few years. Have too much junk and didn't even realize I already had...

Re: What is your Holy Grail?

I'm seeing tons of love here for Panzer Dragoon Saga and I'm liking it. It's in my top 3 all-time, so I definitely agree that it's a game worth playing. I haven't played the game in like 15 years though, so I really need to pull my copy out someday and see how it holds up. I would love to play Panze...

Re: Tony Hawk series

I know it's unlikely, but I'd be interested to see if there's someone here who has never played these games before and gives one of the old ones a shot for the first time, just to see what they think. My guess is they'd still be fun to a newcomer. You don't need to care about skateboarding or sports...

Re: Tony Hawk series

Well, I ended up buying the 360 version of American Wasteland on ebay. Cost $20, but being able to play it in my living room made it worth it to me. I could have bought the Xbox version (it's backwards compatible), but I saw some reports about glitches with playing it on 360. The Playstation control...

Re: Policenauts (Sega Saturn)

Thanks, good to know. In that case I'll probably pass on Policenauts. I had interest in Policenauts over the years, but was always curious how it stacked up to Snatcher. So with gaming time being short these days, I'd probably skip on it. I liked Snatcher, just didn't love it. Maybe I hyped myself u...

Re: Tony Hawk series

Cool, glad to see the series hasn't lost all its fans! Yeah I think I'm choosing between Underground 1 for PS2 and Wasteland for Xbox 360. I prefer the concept of Underground and prefer the PS2 controller for these games... but I have a 360 in my living room (whereas my PS2 is in my gameroom), so I'...

Tony Hawk series

Remember this series?.. it's funny how forgotten it's gotten nowadays, considering how huge it was back in the day. The first Tony Hawk game was revolutionary. It was one of the best sports games ever made when it came out.. so good that it got gamers watching skateboarding (myself included), and go...

Re: Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Game Boy)

It's funny that I'm like "I don't get all the fuss about Zelda games, but I'm liking Link's Awakening," and you guys are like "I like Zelda games, but I don't get all the fuss about Link's Awakening." I wonder if there's something to that... Personally though, I think the gamepla...
