Re: What Console to Buy This Holiday?

I agree 100% with DrLitch; well said. PS4 as your main console, unless there are XB1 exclusives that you prefer way more than the PS4's library. After that, Switch as the second console. For cheaper gifts, obviously the SNES Classic is a great choice, if you can snag one. The Retron 5 is another goo...

Re: Christmas Gift Ideas

Good call on Art of Atari. Great book. I'm not a fan of the book's name though-- I bet they've lost sales because people assume it's just a book full of photos. While there is a ton of great glossy photos to look at, and there is a focus on the Atari artwork and advertisements, it is just as much a ...

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

Unless there is some nuance I am just not grasping or if it’s an American rose tinted Nintendo thing us Europeans don’t get - I’m not sure. Don't worry, this American can tell you that the latter reason is definitely a huge part of it. I'd add this too -- Zelda has something about it that transcend...

Re: HTC Vive

From everything I've read, the HTC Vive is the best technology of the three. Meanwhile, the PS VR is the cheapest and most accessible of the three, since you can run it off your PS4 rather than needing a high-powered PC. I only recently learned that you need a PC to run the Vive and Oculus (maybe it...

Re: 2017/10/30: Xbox: Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge

Great review. Thanks to Crummylion for recommending this. I bought this game about a year ago, since I'm a fan of the movie, but haven't played it yet. This review is definitely pushing me to finally pop it in my Xbox. While it's Halloween now, does this game also involve enough Christmas theme to m...

Re: Super Mario Odyssey

Regarding Zelda, but brother is a huge fan of the series and he though BOTW was a "fantastic" game, but not really a good Zelda. That may make more sense to other Zelda fans.... BOTW is Nintendo's most impressive game ever, like the Gamespot reviewer said, but that doesn't mean it has to ...

Re: 2017/10/9: Playstation 4: Night Trap 25th Anniversary Edition

This review ran a bit long but I think it's pretty good. Let me know what you think. Great review. Your posts about this game on here and Patreon compelled me to get this game. I never played this game back in the day, but my gf and I have really gotten into it during the past year, since I finally...

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

For those that haven't heard me complain a million times, Zelda and Mario are the bane of my gaming existence. Great series, no doubt, but their "sacred cow" status let's them get away with anything, while the gaming media continues to drool over every one of their games that come out. It ...

Re: Super Mario Odyssey

Oh great, another Mario game being overrated by the professional gaming media as one of the "greatest games of all time". Literally, critics make me hate Mario more than anything. Like I see kids dressed as Mario for Halloween and I just want to beat them up now...thanks for that critics.....

Re: Haunting: Starring Polterguy (Genesis)

Interesting game. I bought it several years ago based on the Critic's positive review. I didn't find it to be as good as him, so I moved on pretty quickly and resold it. But I could see why people would like it. Very unique game.
