Re: All these daggone wires!

Go wireless! I did a ton of research into game rooms when I was creating mine last year in my new house. I was hoping to steal some great ideas from other game rooms, but instead, I more often found myself ditching those ideas and trying my own. When it came to wiring, I found most ideas to be ineff...

Re: Wii U the new Dreamcast?

i've seen articles comparing the Wii U to the Sega Saturn, and I think that's a much better comparison. Like ptdebate said, the Dreamcast actually has a very solid lineup, both 1st and 3rd party, despite its short lifespan. The same can't be said for the Wii U, and I think the Saturn is more represe...

Re: Best and worst sports consoles

Let's not forget the Dreamcast, which revolutionized 3D sports game. At the time of their release, It had the best-ever 3D games for football (NFL 2K), basketball (NBA 2K), and tennis (Virtua Tennis). Those were all instant classics when they came out, blowing away the PS1 and N64 competition, and t...

Re: 2017/11/23: Genesis: Zero Wing (Europe), Steel Empire

Hey, Zero Wing.. Always good to read about that. I bought the game years ago because of the novelty of it. I was surprised that it works fine in a regular Genesis, despite being a Mega Drive game. Decent game too, surprisingly. "All your base are belong to us" is about as old school as int...

Re: Book review: Art of Atari

I really enjoyed this book too, and second the recommendation, even for gamers who aren't big Atari fans. Your review makes a great point about how the box art set the tone for the games. Even with the rudimentary Atari graphics, all it took was great box art and a little imagination and you could p...

Re: 2017/11/19: Nintendo Switch: Sine Mora EX, Super Mario Odyssey

Lol. Galaxy is like 10 years old. Let it go dude. Lol. And of course reviews are subjective. Don’t take it so personally. Haha, no way.. "Curse you Super Mario Galaxy!" will be my last words when I go, no matter what you say. But fair enough, to a degree... Although I don't know about all...

Re: 2017/11/19: Nintendo Switch: Sine Mora EX, Super Mario Odyssey

Is it possible to disagree with a review without ever playing the game?? Just kidding... I know I've probably been annoying with my hate for all the "A+", "10 out of 10", "best game ever" reviews for Super Mario Odyssey, despite not personally playing the game.. sorry a...

Re: Xbox One X Review

First off, thanks for the review. Definitely found it interesting and useful, and I'm at least semi-interested in the Xbox One now, after having no interest before. I do agree with David, though, that the biggest issue for the Xbox One remains its lack of compelling exclusives. It really shows how i...

Re: Tony Hawk series

Oh, and the soundtracks in those games are god tier That's a good point too.. I had forgotten about that. In the 90s, it was almost unprecedented for developers to spend a bunch of money on licensing a lineup of real music for in-game use. To my recollection, there were only a few games starting to...

Take away the mustache and rename him Jim, and everyone would change their scores to 9's.
