Legacy PC/Mac gaming

[QUOTE=ptdebate]This purchase got me thinking: is there any inherent value to legacy PC hardware like there is to legacy gaming consoles? Is there a certain charm to playing old PC games on old PCs rather than patched versions (like GOG) on new hardware? What do y'all think? Anyone out there who sti...

2014/7/2: Genesis: FIFA International Soccer, FIFA Soccer 95, FIFA Soccer 96

[QUOTE=Oltobaz]Fifa is alright, but.. I'd say the best soccer game back then would be Konami's International Super Soccer, on Super Nintendo.[/QUOTE]

There seem to be a few of us on the board that agree with this. The Critic should definitely give it a go at some point!

Nintendo as a Genre?

[QUOTE=BanjoPickles]Thank you, Scotland, for bringing the topic back into focus. I'm getting pretty tired of these topics derailing into "Pixar sucks" and "Nintendo is the greatest company ever" tangents. I just think that Nintendo-developed games have a specific feel. Take, for instance, Nintendo p...

Are reviewers too hard?

[QUOTE=velcrozombie]I realize this isn't necessarily what you're talking about, but review scores are inflated as they are.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />I completely agree. <br /><br />However TimPossible's point is interesting, and maybe there is some ambivalence from reviewers towards the new generation of ...

The Criticize Nintendo Thread

<strong>This post has been edited</strong><br /><br /><strong>Reason - removed an attack on a member</strong><br /><br /><br />Tron - why would Nintendo release a compilation on disc? They have the Virtual Console which ostensibly is preferable for consumers as it allows the freedom to pick and choo...

Playing Soccer Games?

Although I absolutely love football(soccer) I don't spend much time playing football games. There have been a few exceptions over the years, e.g. Sensible Soccer and International Superstar Soccer on SNES. Pro Evolution Soccer was at its absolute peak for 2-3 iterations on PS2 and was perhaps the la...

Smells like Smoke?

I have had the same thing a few times with things bought off eBay. One time it was actually a console (Japanese Saturn). I didn't ask for money back but yeah it can be a bit unpleasant, particularly when opening the package. Fortunately it has dissipated over time without any effort on my part beyon...

Max you would pay for a game?

I have paid the equivalent of $80-90 a couple of times, but generally stick way below that. If there was something I really, really wanted then I would pay more. But I would need to be able to justify it in terms of rarity, it would have to be complete in good condition etc. I suppose Panzer Dragoon...

The Criticize Nintendo Thread

[QUOTE=ptdebate]Pulstar and Metal Slug aren't really imaginative though. One is a 2D shooter and the other is an action platformer. A Life Force (NES) or a Contra (NES/SNES/SMD) serve just as well. [/QUOTE]<br /><br />You're completely right - Pulstar is an R-Type clone (albeit a good one) with...
