Re: Movies You Like That No One Else Does

That YouTube link actually has an advantage over the Blu-Ray because it has the original cut of the film (although it's stupidly cropped to widescreen from the already cropped VHS, so you get only a cramped center bit of the picture; better to watch the original rip, which isn't hard to find). The ...

Re: Movies You Like That No One Else Does

Message from Space, Toei's attempt to cash in on Star War's success. Sets look like something from a stage play, mixes almost-Star-Wars-quality FX w/ embarrassing-by-50's-standards FX, and the story is crazier than The Phantom Menace's story, but I still found it fun. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

Re: Worst Game Titles?

I always thought "The Last Blade 2" was kinda odd (loved the game on Dreamcast though!)

Re: Classic and Retro Gaming Headaches

I don't use my Retron 5 often, so while it hasn't crapped out on me yet I can tell that the build quality is "cheap". I'd say it doesn't surprise me it has broken for others. In regards to the Dreamcast the disc drive seems to be the first thing to die. I've had two Dreamcast's eat it, bot...

Re: Classic and Retro Gaming Headaches

That is definitely a bummer. Just to provide a possible "plan b" option, systems like the Retron 5 allow you to back-up your saves off the cart to the system and do save states directly to the system itself instead of saving to the cart. Being able to save to the systems SD card would get ...

Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

The thing is, even if I can sympathize with the reason it has to be $300 that doesn't make that price any more appealing. If I open a sandwich shop and charge $15 a sandwich because I can't get a good relationship with suppliers as a new business, does my reason the sandwich is $15 matter? No, peop...

Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

Boom. (I gotta play devil's advocate here) Guys. Don't buy into all the negativity. Think back to when the Nintendo Wii was announced and how folks discredited it from the get go. I can remember all the articles announcing it could never compete with the PS3 and Xbox 360. Somehow the system that did...

Re: Wrestling Game Reviews by Rockofhysteria

Love reading your wrestling game reviews Rockofhysteria! Keep 'em coming!

Would love to read your review of WWF King of the Ring, and maybe some of the odd-ball titles like Tag-team Wrestling and M.U.S.C.L.E. on the NES. Thumbs up!
