Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

For overrated, the NES. Nintendo's domination of the American market with that system made it go down in history (written on the Internet by Americans) as the single system that mattered in the post-crash '80s, which it wasn't remotely. You'd think that the democratic hindsight of emulation would ha...

Re: My Idea for a Sonic Comeback (further thoughts)

So... here's what I had in mind: 1. Redesign the characters to have them blend in with the darker tone but remain faithful to their original personalities (minus the more annoying aspects). 2. Use all-new voice talent so the characters are a lot easier on the ears. 3. Redesign their world to match ...

Re: The Decline of Electric Guitars

Personal taste aside, I really think music shouldn't be made with a computer. I guess it could make something good if you squeezed enough effort into it, but just making whatever repetitive nonsense you somehow find catchy is everything that's wrong with today's music IMO. People make brilliant mus...

Re: The Decline of Electric Guitars

You have to remember that the people who give a crap about music are not the people who make music popular. The labels decide, entirely through reaction, what gets enough promotion to be popular, and what they sell gets bought through sheer saturation. Then it gets too saturated, and the labels move...

Re: Games that are so bad they're awesome?

The original Monty Mole games on the ZX Spectrum are considered classics, but they're considered classics by people who grew up with the ZX Spectrum, which had the clunkiest, most spitefully designed library of platform games ever.

No, this is a subtle metaphor for America's wars overseas. A bit of wry, pointed satire from Hollywood's most underappreciated auteur.

Re: Definitive version/Timeline features

I think its just a route to drama. Lets say there is a game like Space Invaders. There may only be one official home console version, but countless clones and wannabes. Then home computer versions. Then versions on compilation disks. Then homebrew versions made decades later without the same constr...

Re: That's it! I'm starting a boycott against Michael Bay!

How would this be a "boycott"? Nobody who hates these movies is going to watch them in the first place. And the people who do watch them don't watch them because they think the movies are good ; they just want to see a zillion-dollar spectacle on a giant screen in an air-conditioned buildi...
