Re: Why won't the DVD die?

Whoops, it appears I placed this in the wrong topic, could a mod kindly move this to "other media"?

Why won't the DVD die?

I found this chart yesterday and was blown away: http://www.the-numbers.com/home-market/dvd-sales/2016 Why was I blown away? Because DVD, a 20 year old format, is still selling very impressively. The top 10 DVD's last year appear to have sold damn near 15 million units, and generated over 240 millio...

Contra:Rebirth (WiiWare)

Ah, yes. I remember seeing this games' gameplay video on the Nintendo Channel (remember that?) and being blown away. I loved how the game maintained an oldschool look, while also looking very fun, and modern. But for some reason, I never got around to getting it.......until last night. And ho-ly-[Ex...

Re: Impractical Jokers

It's amusing, but I personally feel it's staged. Seriously, it takes place in NYC, and the show has millions of fans. How do they not recognize the pranksters?

Re: Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy possibly a Timed Exclusive, could hit Xbox One/Scorpio/Nintendo Switch/PC in the fut

Easy there, tiger. POSSIBLY a timed exclusive. Nothing has been called yet. I highly doubt this will drop on other systems. Why? Simple. Activision owns the right to the Crash Bandicoot franchise, yes, but Naughty Dog owns the original 3 games. You honestly think they'd let a game that's going to se...

Re: PS2-Activision Anthology

This sounds amazing. I had no idea such a great compilation existed. Not only does it exist, but it also appeared on the Game Boy Advance as Activision Anthology About the only way one could go wrong with an Activision collection was with that old PS1 release. As the owner of both, I can tell you, ...

Re: PS2-Activision Anthology

This sounds amazing. I had no idea such a great compilation existed. I think Activision should really do one of these now while they're at the height of their power in the industry, and have the rights to so much stuff and the ability to make anything they want. They could put out a nearly full col...

Re: Do we need a third competitor?

I've very interested in what the Steam console may be able to do.  Many are dismissing it out of hand, but I would never count Steam out in anything they try.  Could be a new, fresh take on console gaming and may actually teach the Big Boys a thing or two about how to innovate! And look where THAT ...

Re: Critic: Review DK VCS!

To those that are interested, this is the latest version. The programmer for the game has stated that it is indeed complete, but small bug fixes may be put out later. This version has a shorter jump distance, and is more optimized. I'd suggest you guys check this release out, as it really is fantast...
