Jak and Daxter

Excellent game! The controls are super smooth, the graphics and sound are still excellent today, and the game is just plain fun. What more is there to say? The game doesn't put much of a penalty on you for dying (only have to walk back a few feet to where you were) so the frustration is kept to a mi...

Re: State of the Site Address 2016

Hey critic, just wanted to let you know that the menu bar on the "Who is the C64 critic" page does not work properly. It is displayed at the side, under the text, as opposed to the top.

Re: Newer GBA cartridge is messed up.

I had forgotten about this thread. Anyway, an update: I took the cartridge to a classic game store in my area that replaced save batteries. Lo and behold, it is one of those cartridges that does not have a save battery, but rather a Flash RAM. The clerk told me that there isn't anything that can be ...

Re: Gaming for Money?

The idea of being a big gaming personality on YouTube sounds good on paper, but I think one needs to consider the potential implications of making this into what is effectively your job. Gaming might go from a fun hobby, to something you HAVE to do. Even if you don't feel like it, you still need to ...

What do you guys think of the 2DS?

I have always been interested in the 3DS, but I've also been iffy on it as I wonder if the price is worth the game library. Still, there are now some games I would like to play, but the price tag still gives me pause, even a good used 3DS is around $140. I thought the 2DS looked a little awkward and...

Re: 6th Gen Love

In my opinion, the 6th gen was the last great generation for video games. It was the last generation before DLC, patches, glitchy games, installs, forced online, etc. took over the industry. And more on a personal taste side, it was the last generation that didn't overdo it on FPS and open world gam...

Old games at the arcade

I went to my local Dave and Buster's today. I had not been there for a few years so a lot has changed but I was amazed that some old games were still there. They still had House of the Dead II and III. I guess that shows how great those games are that they still make enough money to keep around. Eve...

Re: Resident Evil 2

This is an example of a game I never liked. Played it on the N64 when it came out. I just think the design is clunky. The controls are broken. Tank style controls don't work for games that require COMBAT. They work for Grim Fandango, because you don't need to be accurate. A lot of people claim it a...

Re: Resident Evil 2

Yeah, Resident Evil 2 is by far the easiest of the games in many ways, the enemies and bosses were not as tough as in the first game either. Still, it's a good game for someone new to the series to jump into, which is what I did. The easier difficulty helped me get into the series and trained me for...

The mystery of the Resident Evil actors

The first Resident Evil is quite well known for it's amazingly bad FMV intro and ending with cheesy acting and dialogue. Quite a classic for anyone who loves 90's video gaming. Oddly enough though, the actors who portrayed the characters are completely unknown. They are uncredited in the game, being...
