Re: Retro-bit Generations console review

Wow robotrek, harsh. (Are you named after the rather underrated classic SNES RPG by any chance?) There seem to be a huge amount of these types of systems out now, but I can't get myself to buy them. I think with few exceptions, I'd want to mainly have originals. If there is something out there or un...

Re: 2016 in Video Gaming

And unless you're genuinely good (like, really good) it seems nearly impossible to actually level up in ranked games, whether it is something like League of Legends or Heroes of the Storm, if you have just one person on your team that's a troll, (and that seems to happen A LOT.) then winning become...

Re: 2016 in Video Gaming

I will say this is officially the year I've gotten over the MOBA format. Fun Fact - While Herzog Zwei is often cited as a MOBA precursor, the idea of two player controlled generals leading a force of AI soldiers through lanes of a forest goes back to tbe Odyssey 2 game, War of Nerves. (shameless O2...

Re: 2016 in Video Gaming

I don't own any of the new systems, so my gaming life has been older retro games on systems I have, older computer games, (The various Shadowrun Returns games all got 2nd/3rd playthroughs, and I'm the furthest I've ever been in Wizardry 8) and MOBAs. I will say this is officially the year I've gotte...

Re: Most Unreliable Console?

Add me to those on here that have said NES and Dreamcast. My NES was removed from my possession in the mid 90's, but it had all sorts of issues. I would have to stack a 2nd cartridge into it to hold the one I was trying to play in place, the connectors were going, etc. I have no doubt that the NES w...

Re: 2016/12/13: Philips CD-i: Christmas Crisis

I didn't even know the CD-i existed until this website, and I was big into games in the 90's. I've played a lot of more "oddball" systems like the virtuaboy, Jaguar, and Atari 5600. And while my gaming magazine of the day "Game Players" with 'Centaur Bill' (the main editors head ...

Re: Why did you go back?

For me, a big part of the love for retro gaming is pushing the power button, pushing start, and being able to jump into the game in a matter of seconds. I don't know whose bright idea it was to replace that with minutes of intro screens, but it's one of the things that I hate most about modern gami...

Re: Have Panzer Dragoon Saga? Need $24? Gamestop wants to help!

Getting a copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga has been on my "eventual things to get" list since it came out. I would absolutely love to get an original copy of that game. One of these days I'll save my pennies and shell out the 300+ dollars for a copy. (Though, I've seen them go for 1000+ on ebay...
