Re: Happy 25th Gameboy

I OWN one of those kiosks. It's one of the holy grails in my collection.

They're one of the few alternative bands that DON'T put me to sleep.

Re: Another World

It was enjoyable at release, and definitely blew everyone away, but it played rather clunkily (is that even a word?). I don't think games like this really hit their potential until Flashback and Oddworld came around.

Re: Super Mario 64 N64 vs DS

The DS version controls fine if you were used to early 3D platformers on the PS1, before the dualshock. I give my vote for the DS version. Those cool mini-games as a timewaster, the additional characters, the extra stages, and the superior visuals give it a significant edge. The N64 game was SOLID, ...

Re: What do you want to see in the NX

If it uses cartridges I'd assume they're a tad larger than 3DS games. They won't want them fitting in DS and 3DS systems. And since flash memory is so damned cheap to produce, it's going to be quite AWESOME to see if they can fit 40gb+ games onto disks. Since it'd basically be an SSD used for games,...

Re: Castle of Illusion remake review

I know this is going to sound odd, but I torrented the PC version in response to this. I know, I know, piracy is wrong, but it's simply going into my digital software archive. I have an entire 4tb SSD that was purchased with the soul intent of preserving download only software. It's how I'll ensure ...

Re: Is Nutella The Greatest Thing Ever Invented?

I personally don't like the stuff. I've had it many times, but it's entirely too sweet. I'll stick to crunchy peanut butter.

Re: SNES 25th anniversary

Hard to believe the damned thing came out so long ago! I remember not buying one until the next year, at first I was unenthused, but I grew to like the system. I still feel the Genesis was the superior system, but there's nothing wrong with the SNES. I remember a lot of people being pissed you could...
