National Videogame Museum

For years I thought it'd be great to see a video game museum open in the U.S., especially now that there is over 50 years of history in the industry. That finally became a reality in April 2016, when the National Videogame Museum opened just outside of Dallas, Texas. To my knowledge, it's the first ...

Re: Halloween Games?

Your mention of Buffy reminded me that there are two X-Files video games, if you have interest in that show. There is "The X-Files" on PS1, which is an FMV adventure game that uses real actors (including cameos from Mulder, Scully, Skinner, and other characters). It is not remotely a good ...

Re: 2017/9/17: Xbox One: Final Fantasy XV

If you completed FF12 and still hold the same opinion, then maybe it's just not your cup of tea. I think it is proof, however, that at least through 12, Square was still radically innovating their series with each installment. 12 has been extremely influential in the development of open-world the a...

Re: Halloween Games?

How about Nightmare Before Christmas: Oggie Boogie's Revenge? It's basically Devil May Cry for kids. There should one on the PS2 and Xbox. I second this one too. I actually thought you had already reviewed it. I picked it up recently myself because of the theme, but haven't tried it yet. Looks like...

Re: Halloween Games?

I thought of the VGC Halloween Special as I was playing Captain Tomaday for the Neo Geo recently. Captain Tomaday is a vertical shooter starring a flying tomato.. The first level has a Halloween theme, with graveyards and enemies that include bats and jack-o-lanterns. Yes, it's as awful as it sounds...

Re: 2017/9/17: Xbox One: Final Fantasy XV

Between 13 and 15, 13 is just a much more polished, well-thought-out experience. It checks all of the boxes of a great JRPG, even if it fails to bring anything truly special to the table. It won't outshine those glorious memories of the SNES and PS1 Final Fantasy games, but I would argue that it is...

Re: Toys R Us files Chapter 11

Hopefully it never goes further than Chapter 11. Usually when stores go out of business, there are other stores that are more than capable of picking up the slack (like when Wal-Mart put stores out of business in the 90s). I feel like that's not true with Toys R Us... since it's the only big nationa...

Re: Streak vs Series

I love sports, but don't care much for baseball, especially during the regular season. But still, I took interest in the Indian's streak and liked hearing the updates about it on ESPN Radio during my morning drive. But I gotta agree with you -- any diehard sports fan would prefer that their team win...

Re: 2017/9/17: Xbox One: Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy was my favorite franchise growing up, but I gave up on it after being letdown by the very mediocre FF 12, and then seeing the middling reviews for the FF games since then. Ptdebate, and anyone else, which do you prefer -- FF 13 or 15? Do either of them do enough to bring back gamers wh...
