Re: Should original Xbox review be updated to reflect its poor reliability?

Poor reliability relative to what? An optical disc-based console that is multiple generations removed? Are we comparing it to solid state, cartridge-based consoles? If you ask me, lasting until now, after running hours and hours on end through years and years, seems fairly respectable. To me, poor r...

Re: Keep Politics out of video games

I can't believe someone would actually write an article ENCOURAGING that! What, games aren't good enough yet, but once politics are added they'll be complete? What a stupid, stupid, stupid idea for an article. What's next, "Get your child pornography into my video games!"?

Re: Best video game feels?

1. That prepubescent tingle in my shorts whenever I saw the shop girl in Forgotten Worlds in the arcade. 2. The chilling atmosphere in the last area of Metroid, especially after entering Mother Brain's lair. The sounds and the graphics and the stifling difficulty blew my mind. 3. The reaction in my ...

Re: Instant gratification/Slow burn icons

Absolutely. And you can start by slapping a "slow-burn" icon on "Portal" when you re-review it to the end and realized what a huge part of the game you missed by not playing through it...

Re: Is there a safe haven left from the ultra-consumerist industry this year?

Get a Wii, hack it with the Homebrew channel, put roms of all your favorite games on there with their emulators, and enjoy everything up to and including the vast and under-appreciated Wii library. I can't imagine myself ever needing more than this.

Re: Best Buy ticket system?

People keep talking like Nintendo is almost "accidentally" ending production of the NES Classic, and that seems like a weird assumption to me. If the thing is still selling well, and they are ENDING production, it's obvious to me that their intentions are different than people assume. I th...

Re: Nintendo SNES Mini Classic

I'd actually be very surprised if the did this anytime soon now that the Switch is out. I think the NES classic was an advertisement for Nintendo to pave the way for the Switch, and I think they discontinued it to keep the focus on the Switch. I can't seen them doing this right now with the Switch s...

Re: Got a Nintendo Switch!

I'm absolutely a proponent of physical media, but lately I've been getting burned on all of the soulless, big budget physical media games and living it up on downloadable gold. In the same day I bought RE6 and a downloadable bundle of Limbo and Inside. I couldn't stay interested in RE6 for more than...

Re: Super Mario Galaxy or Super Mario Galaxy 2?

The only thing I hated about either of them was the stupid Mario-Head-Spaceship-Planet thing in the second game. I don't know why, but I HATED that. Hated it. It was just beyond weird and arbitrary. As a result, first game gets my vote. :) It's funny, I actually remember you talking about hating th...
