Re: 2018/4/29: Game Boy Color: Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Nice! A great game to add to your Game Boy review list. I played this game a bit as a teenager, and finally went back and beat it last November/December. As I've mentioned in the past, I've never understood the mass obsession that Zelda games have gained over the years.. solid games for sure, but I ...

Re: Game/Movie collection tracking app?

Like others mentioned, I also use a homemade spreadsheet. I needed one for years because I had a bad habit of rebuying games I already owned. Finally my wife made me a nice one on Excel. It has tabs for each system, and a main page that shows some overall statistics. For years, I searched around for...

Re: Saturn replacement cases

Pretty nifty, thanks for sharing. For Saturn, my method over the years has always been to buy as many cheap sports games as possible, just for the cases. Even if it was a game I already had, I'd pay a few dollars just to use the case. So all my Saturn sports games have cracked up cases, because I sw...

Re: Vita Games?

Gravity Rush looks good too, and very unique. I almost bought Gravity Rush Remastered for the PS4 last night on PSN. Then while reading a review, I realized it originated as a Vita game. So I decided to save it for when I get a Vita. VGC reviewed it too and gave it a B.

Re: VentureBeat article "Consoles need to ditch discs and embrace digital downloads"

I disagree with this point. All you need to do is look at the music industry. Cds are no longer in Best Buy, and there's very few now in Target, Walmart, etc. Has this hurt the record labels? Not at all. They have embraced the streaming model and record labels are making record (excuse the pun) pro...

Re: Uncharted 2 vs. Uncharted 4?

I may be in the minority, But I really liked the first game. The third game was awesome when I first played it, and the game had a lot larger environments, but wasn't as exciting for me when I went back to play it. Check out lost legacy as well, though not as long , it’s a great addition to the ser...

Re: VentureBeat article "Consoles need to ditch discs and embrace digital downloads"

Like everyone else here, I completely disagree with the article. But it does hint at a notable point -- it's likely the retailers that will keep physical releases going for years to come, more so than consumers. It's all about the money. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo don't care much what we all thin...

Re: Vita Games?

Nice start! Although you mostly have retro games, 4 of those games are on my personal Top 10 of all-time favorite games (FF Tactics, FF7, Symphony of the Night, and Metal Gear Solid). So I'm a fan of your choices. You'll have to keep us posted on what you think, especially FF Tactics. I'm interested...

Uncharted 2 vs. Uncharted 4?

For years, I was never interested in the Uncharted series, despite the excellent reviews. So I never played any of the three PS3 games. Flash forward to my PS4, which came bundled with Uncharted 4. I figured it was time that I finally try the series. As it turns out, Uncharted 4 was my favorite curr...

Re: Baseball in Decline?

As for baseball.. despite being a very avid sports fan, and capable of watching almost any sport, baseball is one I truly dread. It's so slow and boring. At-bats take way too long. It's a whole lot of nothingness, sprinkled with very brief moments of excitement. Not worth it; I can't sit through it....
