Wario Wii U

[QUOTE=ptdebate]I got this one for free too! Looking forward to playing it. Now the only first-party Wii U game I don't own is DKC: Tropical Freeze.[/QUOTE]

I would suggest in that case you might as well make it a 100% first-party collection, it's a fantastic game!

LA Noire

I have been giving LA Noire a go on the Xbox360 after getting it a while back for a knock-down price. After a few hours of playing I'm not wholly convinced by it yet - I love the atmosphere and the plot is decent, but I am finding the gameplay slightly jarring. Much of it is highly familiar from GTA...

Goldeneye (N64)

I don't think it is unreasonable to compare Goldeneye to a game that was released a year before it. Yes, obviously the N64 has significant limitations to a high-end PC of the time. I don't expect it to push as many polygons. However, I think it is valid to criticise the pacing, level design and game...

The Criticize Nintendo Thread

[QUOTE=Tron]Dog, did you attack me? I feel like someone tried to attack me, but then someone else stepped in to stop them and then when I turn around to see who was trying to attack me all I see are a bunch of smiling faces.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />Hehe, no I didn't attack you Tron. I don't really believ...

Goldeneye (N64)

To be honest, I wasn't a big fan of Goldeneye. At the time it came out I was playing Quake online, and it therefore didn't have the same impact on me as it did on those who hadn't ever played a multiplayer FPS before. 4 players on the same screen may have been revolutionary in a way, but compared to...

Blowing on your NES cartridges - silly or sound?

It's well established now that rubbing alcohol applied with a q-tip/cotton bud is the best technique, but the blowing technique undoubtedly worked. I would avoid doing so now of course, as I am more interested in preserving my collection, but to treat it as some sort of urban myth is clearly nonsense.

Most Unreliable Console?

I've had similar experiences to many of you. Two Game Gears have succumbed due to the infamous capacitors. I had to send back a TurboDuo to Japan as there was no sign of life on arrival. Fortunately the TurboDuo RX is sturdier. My toaster NES is utterly unreliable, so I upgraded to an AV Famicom and...

2014/7/10: Xbox 360: FIFA 14

<span style="font-size: 13px;">Agree with Astrosmasher's post above. There are a bunch of great arcade games from the early to mid-90s if you are willing to use MAME. Otherwise Sensible Soccer still has a following (Amiga & PC are the preferred ports), International Superstar Soccer (and/or the ...

Let's Talk Sega Saturn

I know what you mean, it is some way beyond my levels of comprehension. Also, I'm not sure what happened to the formatting of my last post!
