Re: new 3DS game is an old mobile game

I am actually very disappointed in Nintendo for this. Charging $30 for a free mobile game that's been available for three years, all for a Mario skin? No thanks. When Nintendo said they were going to get into the mobile market, I expected them to show mobile developers how it's done. I didn't expec...

Re: Modern or classic gaming

This is an older thread, but nice to get input as membership changes and gaming continues to march on. I enjoy lots of classic games and vintage hardware, but I am glad gaming continued to evolve. For instance, I have little appreciation for an original Gameboy. I would rather play the games on more...

Re: 2015/5/27: Atari 2600: Video Olympics, Mines of Minos, Death Trap

Nice improvement for Video Olympics. Did you try variations with controllable ball? Its fun.

Also, pong machines in the 70s were often billed as various 'sports', so a collection of sports as 'olympics' was not unusual.

Re: My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

...even comparable to Planet of the Apes. Apes is an awesome movie & I'll go as far as to say it's even better than the best Star Trek movie, Wrath of Khan. I could accept a comparison of Apes to Khan as they are both great movies, but the Slow Motion Picture, hecks no. I brought Ebert in as so...

Re: VGC Wikipedia Page Up For Deletion

I understand any website needs criteria for being covered, but its got to be fair and universal. I see Daves site is still a link on 'video game review websites'. Like pages with lists of things, those things need not be notable themselves, but I bet it vets removed in time. Or he could have an entr...

Re: My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

I also have to disagree With Scotty on his view of The Slow Motion Picture. I'm a big trek fan, but that movie was awful. I sat through it once & couldn't wait until it was over. I think my opinion is a minority one, and no doubt its pacing is akin to paint drying. It was trying to awe us, to g...

Re: My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

The Original Series also had episodes like Voyage Home, and they too were divisive at the time. Many of the best ST:TOS were all action (balance of terror) or let the viewers know the heroes were people with hearts and souls (this side of paradise) but Trek had lots of writers and some enjoyed comed...

Re: Walking Dead: Season One (PC)

Finished the first episode. If a normal point and click is like turn based, this is like a real time point and click. Still definitely like a point and click though. Also in meeting characters from the tv series, you know they will both survive and leave, but are also important...so that affects the...
