Re: SuperHero TV

A few comments: - I've seen a few Flash episodes. It's lighthearted and captures that silver age feel while note feeling retro either. Not my favorite show of all times, but it's pretty decent. - Gotham is where it's at. The young Penguin guy is fantastic, the whole series is a blast. I can't wait f...

Re: Gulf Between Arcades and Consoles

The Super Famicom, or SFC, the Japanese original incarnation, came out in late 1990. I mentioned Super Ghouls'n ghosts. No one can deny how amazing it looks. Few sprites 2D games look this good. Part of some Capcom arcades comps nowadays. CPS arcade system quality, in other words. Most impressive. I...

Re: SuperHero TV

So am I! I was Lucky enough to be in Tokyo when the new movie came out, Ressurection of F. Fantastic stuff. Next thing you know, they finally release a new series, not only in anime form, but also in manga (Toriyama is credited for the story, yet won't actually be drawing it). I for one could never ...

Re: Gulf Between Arcades and Consoles

Some Mega Drive games looked so good they were ported into the arcades: Thunderforce 3 became Thunderforce AC, yet most people refer to the original console game as the superior version. Thanks to separate attachments (32X...), it was eventually possible to run "pre PS1" tech, for lack of ...

Re: PS4 Arcade Sticks?

Hori already designed two joysticks compatible with the PS3 and the PS4. There's also an X Box One version. The Real Arcade Pro 4 and 5 (or RAP 4 and 5) are extremely well designed, with awesome controls said to be even better than standards SANWA joysticks and buttons, and that's saying something (...

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

Hmm... Should I reorganize the thread or something if categories are needed? Any suggestions? Speaking of Japanese Horror films, I have really enjoyed several different movies that fit into this category. I watched/own Juno and Ringu and thought that they were great. I honestly thought The Ring was...

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

Yes, categories are needed, and Alien and Prometheus certainly deserve a spot in sci fi horror, although I'm probably more receptive to their sci fi elements than I am with their horror factor, especially in Prometheus' case. It has monsters, it's probably supposed to creep you out at times, but it ...

Re: "It's terrible but I like it anyway" games

Hey, Robowarrior is a legit classic! I think I was maybe 13 when I beat it. I agree with Fighting Masters. It came out at a time I was itching for some decent vs fighting action, thanks to Double Dragon and Trojan vs modes on NES. Pre Street Fighter 2 era, in other words. It seemed like a fantastic ...

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

I'm a big fan of the genre as well. In general, I find asian horror movies scarier than western offerings, especially the Japanese. "Ring", the original version, is so much better than the American remake... Those do not show you that much, yet work in subtler ways. The soundtrack typicall...

Re: "It's terrible but I like it anyway" games

Iron Man and XO-Manowar in Heavy Metal This is pretty much dated in the worst way ever. You could probably get this game to work on the SNES since its Game Boy port was passable. But the music, boss fights, and atmosphere fit the generation to a 'T'. Couldn't agree more. I'll also throw in Sword of...
