Re: Gulf Between Arcades and Consoles

Some valid points here and there. Still, I disagree with the idea the SNES would have been a better fit than the PSONE and the Saturn for vs fighting games such as XMEN, Marvel Super Heroes... Or maybe I'm missing something. Not saying it doesn't handle Street Fighter Alpha 2 like a champ, but this ...

Re: PC gaming gives me a headache

I recently purchased "PC glasses" while in Japan last week. I've no idea whether this is a popular product in the US or not, but I find it's an useful product when sitting up close to one one of my arcade monitors: my eyes no longer itch anymore! It might also help reducing headaches for ...

I'd love to play these games again, I'll look into this collection Rumor, or might actu...

VGC forum game trading section

There was an attempt not too long ago to revive this board games trading section, to no avail sadly. I'd say there's a good level of trust among members, we get along very well, and I'd really like to see this section come back. What do you guys think? With all the changes of late, this might be a g...
