Re: Toys R Us files Chapter 11

I don't know if more department stores are needed or more diversified items. The electronics section of the Walmart near my house is pretty meh. There is just nothing that interests me. All current game consoles are pretty much the same in terms of capabilities with many overlapping titles. Back wh...

Re: Everything's hard to open?

I recently bought that Oregon Trail handheld game. The thing was held in by four giant plastic twist tabs (those tabs you have to turn 90s degree). The back of the housing is scarred by the four holes these things left. The worst I've encountered are Disney products. Its at the point where I pre-ope...

Re: Mini Classic Arcade Machines

I got a Pac Man for Christmas. Quite honestly I picked it up because it looks great. I've not even unboxed it, but it works and the screen is bright and you can play a bit through the packaging.

Re: 2018/3/22: Turbografx-16: Space Harrier, Turrican

Its kinda neat to have Sega's Space Harrier on this system at all - and it probably plays better than the Master System version. Since its also a 1989 game, it prompts me to wonder "What if this had been the pack-in title?". Of course, being a Sega game, that would not have made much sense...

Re: Toys R Us files Chapter 11

http://money.cnn.com/2018/03/20/news/companies/kb-toys-toys-r-us/index.html KB Toys is planning a comeback. The brand's owners plan to open 1000 temporary stores in November. The ones which do well may become permanent, if they can get a good lease. Remember this is a new company that bought the na...

Be careful with a car name, because it might sound like Turbo Man and Booster

Re: Describing Superhero's Powers?

First, Valiant is the name of a comic book publisher. They had a good run in the 90s with titles, were bought by Acclaim, folded, and have returned. As gamers, we might know them best for the 90s era of Turok, that led to those video games. A different name might be better, or at least add something...

Re: Fortnite (PS4)

My only real annoyance is that there's a degree of randomness that can really screw with you. No matter how well you plan things out, it won't matter if XxUr_MoM69 happens to find a top tier sniper rifle and rocket launcher in his first house, and you're stuck with a low level pistol and a ton of a...
