Mario Kart Rankings

The sex appeal of Mario Kart 64 pushes it over the top?  <br /><br />IMO, despite my fond memories of it, albeit without hot girls, MK64 has probably aged the worst, and it's almost entirely because of the sense of speed, or an alarming lack of it.  The 150cc class feels like the 50cc clas...

Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)

[QUOTE=ActRaiser]<br /><br />I haven't played a Mario Kart game since the N64 days.  As a result, a good 15 years sounds about right.<br /><br />The graphics are really, really good.  The online play when it works is great.  <br /><br />Between this and Sega's All Star Racing Transfor...

Mario Kart 8 (Wii U)

No doubt great care needed to be put in the game, but IMO, MarioKart.TV was probably the most important new feature that EAD Group 1 developed for MK8.  The ease at which one can share a race's highlights through social media could help the viral marketing aspect for the game.<br /><br />I...

The Mario Kart 8 Friends List Thread!

I believe I'm still bronZfonZ on the Nintendo Network.  Getting the game either tonight or tomorrow, as commitments permit.

Generation is off to a lousy start!

[QUOTE=ptdebate]<br /><br />Game prices are cheaper <em>by far</em> than they've ever been. The very cheapest early Atari 2600 games were $30, which in today's currency amounts to <span style="font-family: "Times New Roman"; font-size: large;">$</span><strong style="font-family: "...

Generation is off to a lousy start!

Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony need to do something that reflects the sign of the times instead of clinging to glory days long past.<br /><br />Nintendo has probably done more than the other two companies combined when it comes to cradle-to-grave audience support and gameplay innovatio...

Generation is off to a lousy start!

If there's one consolation prize for Nintendo regarding the Wii U, they have the largest software attach rate out of all three current-gen TV-attached consoles. <br /><br />I've even read reports that the PS4 in Japan is experiencing a <1.0 attach rate.  Are the Japanese aware that there a...

Most Influential Video Games of Early 90s

While the Ultima series started in the early 80s, Ultima VII (1992) is considered the definitive version of the series and is one of the biggest influencers of the open-world/sandbox genre.

Aladdin (Genesis/SNES)

I'd actually have to go with the SNES version.  <br /><br />The Genesis version had the mass-appeal advantage of having cartoon-like graphics, but it suffered from bad hit detection, somewhat floaty controls, and the inherently inferior music.  <br /><br />Plus, I think the SNES versi...

I know it is a pc game, but please review Big Rig Truckers

I'm having a much more enjoyable time playing Euro Truck Simulator 2.  The devs have also announced that they're working on American Truck Simulator.
