Re: 2016/11/30: Nintendo 64: Goldeneye 007, 007: The World Is Not Enough, Perfect Dark

For what it's worth, I also only really played Goldeneye for single-player back in the day. Maybe that's why I'm not as nostalgic about the game as others...even back then, I didn't think the multiplayer was much fun. In fairness, though, I only played multiplayer on a few occasions back then and I ...

Re: Help! Game room ideas?

I know this is more a matter of personal taste, but I'm not a huge fan of displaying console boxes. I keep all of mine, just out of sight. I know they are big and colorful (usually) and fill an impressive amount of space, but I think things tend to get a bit too "warehouse" looking.... I ...

Looks like some of the photos are out of order with the captions in the post above, but you get the idea.

Re: Help! Game room ideas?

Just for starters, here's my original "Before" photos. IMG_3011.jpg So here is the room itself, as it looked when we first moved in. It's an extra upstairs bedroom. (Floors were since refinished and much has been added.) IMG_3910.jpg Here's the same room from the other angle. Fortunately t...

Re: Help! Game room ideas?

Forgot about this post! Thanks for the reminder. That guy's room that scotland posted is definitely nice...hopefully I can be that organized. My room is coming along slowly but surely, especially with all the other projects around the new home. But I've been working on it..I have a vision in my head...

Been looking forward to these reviews. They didn't disappoint. First off, I have to commend you Critic for your Goldeneye review. It's rare to see a critic willing to call out the sacred cows of the gaming world, but you consistently point out that games like Super Mario 64 and Goldeneye haven't age...

Re: Confess Your Unpopular Video Game Opinions

I've been very vocal over the years about my annoyance at "the two sacred cows of gaming", i.e.: -Over the past 20 years, Super Mario and Legend of Zelda are the two most overrated series in all of gaming. Super Mario World is one of the best games ever made, but any Super Mario game relea...

Re: Christmas Games?

Good thing this was just revived, because I was looking for a good place to post a few X-Mas recommendations for the Critic, since he's always looking for new ones. As you've probably realized by now, there are very few games ever made that are exclusively about Christmas, and even fewer where you a...

Re: Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES)

I have both the Genesis and SNES versions, so last night I decided there would be a BATTLE TO THE DEATH!!! 2-player Zombies Ate My Neighbors, Genesis version VS. SNES version. Winner stays in my collection, loser gets sold on ebay! Graphically it's not even close-- the SNES version blows the Genesis...

Re: Terrible Nerd (e-Book)

I second this recommendation. I read this book a few years back and really enjoyed it. The author's experiences, such as using Atari computers in the '80s, was before my time. But for me, those experiences in the book were the highlight for me, because they were something I hadn't experienced. I gre...
