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 ...

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...
