Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

God forgive Forbid! The phrase doesn't even make any sense with "forgive" there! (Sorry, but I figured that if you have a whole thread for fixing typos in your reviews, you can probably put up with this.) Oh, the console. It's certainly interesting; ever since the DS, they've been trying ...

Re: 2015/11/1: Sega CD: 3 Ninjas Kick Back, Flink

The review is factually wrong. It says things about the game that are provably false, which is baffling coming from such an otherwise reliable source.

Re: Most Worthless Console You have Ever Owned?

The 3DO is a great machine that was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and even as unlucky as it was, it still has some worthy games. The Need for Speed and Return Fire are pretty much the system's peak, being the best by far of the few games that actually pushed the 3D graphics ( Blade Force and...

Re: 2015/11/1: Sega CD: 3 Ninjas Kick Back, Flink

I wasn't registered when this review was posted, but I ran into it again and had to comment. It's clueless! What an insult to a fine, fine game. Yeah, it's slow, and the main character's a dweeb, but you missed the hugely important mechanic of throwing enemies (which is why a single jump only knocks...

Re: Top 5 Genesis Games

1. Earthworm Jim Perfect. Perfect! And it's absolutely a Genesis game first and foremost; the SNES version is slicker, but playing it quickly makes it clear that the levels were designed around 320-pixel visibility, not 256. 2. The Misadventures of Flink Impossibly beautiful, as is everything that H...

Re: Why wasn't Mario 64 a pack-in game?

I know that the PlayStation's launch forced Nintendo to significantly lower their system's price from what they had planned. Maybe they were going to include the game but had to leave it out to maintain profitability. Given that the only other launch title was Pilotwings 64 , N64 adopters were prett...

Re: Top 10 Halloween Games?

Since I'm into playing Game Boy Advance lately, I was wondering if there are any Halloween style games for it, or any Nintendo handheld for that matter. Other than kid Dracula for game boy, I can't think of a lot. Wendy: Every Witch Way on the Color is supposed to be pretty good. It's by the people...

Re: Games That Need Sequels/Reboots/Remakes Thread 2: Electric Boogaloo

I would buy a 3D, open-world H.E.R.O. that let me fly all over a giant cave system with a heli-pack and a laser gun.

Also, with Star Fox run as badly into the ground as it's been, it's about time we had a Space Harrier comeback. Imagine what that would be like on the Oculus!

Re: New Castlevania Banner

"What is a man?" SotN is in my all-time Top 10, and yet that line didn't catch my attention at all back when I played it in the mid-2000s. I only recently learned that it had become a meme. I don't think it's that weird of a line though, especially compared to all the other bad translatio...
