Re: Conker's Bad Fur Day (N64) and Conker: Live and Reloaded (Xbox)

Juvenile is the perfect word to describe the game. I'm not above a good poop joke, no sir, but I found most of Conker's humor to fall incredibly flat. Same here. Nothing wrong with quality poop jokes, but poop just for the sake of poop isn't enough. The Conker writers seemed to think that just putt...

Re: Tomcat Alley-Sega Cd

I was playing some Sega CD last night, so I figured I'd snag Tomcat Alley off my shelf and give it a try (I had never played it before). The cheesy FMV scenes are entertaining enough. They're painfully grainy, but I give them credit for being full-screen. As for the gameplay, not too bad, but nothin...

Re: Playstation VR

I've been interested to learn more about the Playstation VR, so thanks for sharing. Like many gamers, I've been interested in the potential of VR since the I first heard of it in the early 90s, so it's cool to see it finally coming to fruition. Now we just need some good games to come out for it. Ba...

Re: Conker's Bad Fur Day (N64) and Conker: Live and Reloaded (Xbox)

I didn't even realize that it was more censored... But I agree with you that that makes little sense. I think by beating the single player game you can unlock uncensored swearing in the multiplayer portion. But the single player game always remains censored. Really makes little sense. I'm also surpr...

Conker's Bad Fur Day (N64) and Conker: Live and Reloaded (Xbox)

I remember the hype for Conker's Bad Fur Day back in the early 2000's, and it definitely sucked me in. I was maturing as a gamer and the promise of an adult-themed platforming game was too much to resist. And for those that don't recall, Nintendo was very big on its "family friendly" image...

Re: I Like Short Games

But I would never say I prefer short games. As an adult, I am extremely concerned about how I spend my hard earned money, and I don't like forking out €€€ for a game that I can beat in a handful of hours. There has to be a certain balance between the price I pay for it and the hours I can squeeze o...

Re: I Like Short Games

Saying "Few adults with real lives have 40+ hours to dedicate to a game" is denigrating. No it's not. No one is denigrating your lifestyle. Apparently you just qualify as one of the "few" with real lives that do have 40+ hours to dedicate to a game. If anything, we're jealous.

Re: Why do people like RPGs?

For a great starting point for both tactics and story, I'd highly recommend trying Final Fantasy Tactics (the original, not the sequels). Either the PS1 original or the slightly improved PSP version. I've played both versions to completion and it still holds up perfectly today. For years, I consider...

Re: 2017/7/18: Wii: Army Men: Soldiers of Misfortune, We Love Golf

When I saw the "Army Men" title I had to wonder if it was part of the Army Men franchise from 3DO. (AKA, "the most unnecessary onslaught of sequels based on the mild success of one mediocre game" in gaming history.) Turns out it is--although it was developed by Global Star, which...

Re: Why do people like RPGs?

It's hard to describe, even for someone like me who grew up with RPGs as my favorite genre. First, I'd agree with the last paragraph on Scotland's post, about a good RPG being like a good book. The story of an RPG engages you in the same way you might get engrossed in a fantasy TV show or book (like...
