Re: Last new console to give you "that feeling"...

For me it was the N64 about... 6-7 years ago? One of my longtime buddies had moved out to go to college in Chicago, (we're all from San Diego) and after his mom got tired of storing his stuff for several years she offered all his old game stuff to me. I got a Dreamcast and an N64 from them for free,...

Re: Which Games Was the VGC Unfair Towards?

Maybe it's because I'm a software developer by trade, but I don't like games where I make my own content. In games like Excitebike it's just an extraneous mode. I hardly bother with it and it really doesn't impact the grade. I also don't care for Minecraft. Clearly there is a huge audience for this...

Re: C64 Reproduction Unit

I'm really hoping a working 8-bit computer like a C64 comes into my wife's store soon. She just took ownership of a big thrift shop and I've already replaced my NES with one and I have many old games, ducktales being the best/most valuable game. (Lots of lesser known disney games, all of it came in ...

Re: Which Games Was the VGC Unfair Towards?

No one has mentioned Guardian Heroes on the Saturn? Sure, the game isn't an A but it's absolutely better than he gives it. I love the branching paths, unlock-able characters, etc. That game really deserves a B/B- in my mind. Oh, and I 2nd cyborg justice, that game deserves a C in my mind. C+ if you ...

Re: Worst Movies of 2016!

My oh my... yes, I'll nominate Batman vs. Superman as well... that was genuinely awful. Probably the worse film I've seen in a long, long time. I'm glad the critic thought Lex Luthor was awful, I agree whole heartedly. It was from the same guy that did Watchmen, and he f***** that movie up really re...

Re: Odyssey 2 Broken!

While this isn't specific to the odyssey, I've have many computers/systems that cease functioning because of loose wires and dust all over the place. I have many, many animals and I have to vacuum my stuff out (with the brush part!) often to keep it all working well.

Re: Most Unreliable Console?

Having now officially read the thread, I'm amazed how many people have had PS2 issues. My PS2 was either a launch model or an early revision, (It is the normal big type, and I bought it when the system was new, not at launch, but within the first year or 2 of release) and it is an absolute beast. I ...

Re: Most Unreliable Console?

Thanks for answering my backwards compatibility question so thoroughly. The is unfortunate that practically none of the new systems have that. Wii U having Wii compatibility is nice, if I get that I could feasibly sell my old Wii system, (My GC still works perfectly fine, that machine is really toug...

Re: Most Unreliable Console?

It's possible that the Wii reads scratched discs better than the gamecube which could be the reason for the problem. I've had a gamecube since it was launched in the U.S. And mine still works fine... My Wii is actually in worse shape lol. I'd agree with Rev. I remember that, back in the day, my cop...

Re: Madden 95 (Genesis)

I did the same exact thing in September (played a full season) and agree 100% - it was well-worth the time spent. I had to "settle" for playing '95 since the internal batteries in my Madden 96, 97 and 98 carts no longer will save the season for me. Those batteries are really easy to swap ...
