Anyone try Shantae?

Anyone have any opinions on the newest Shantae game? The physical release is out now for Wii U, looks like a decent action-platformer. Thoughts, please.

Re: Help! Game room ideas?

Came across this person's (Kirkwood Rietveld) game room. I think we have a winner http://imgur.com/a/84kpy It's a heck of a collection to be sure, but the picture I found to be the most interesting (curious?) was the one with the C-128 monitor sitting inside a...mirrored box? Then it hit me, it's a...

Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

Anyone want to take a stab at the pricing of the various bits-n-pieces? Probably won't know the true prices for months, but howzabout... $200 for the "core" system (screen/guts, 2 side controllers) (Second thought, maybe $250...) $80 for the TV dock/controller dock thingy (the thing you ca...

Re: Where are all the racing games?

Haven't seen any mention of the Trackmania games for PS4 and Xbox One. I've got it for Xbone (as well as the earlier Wii game, b/c on Wii U), and I think they're dang fun. Short, arcadey races, all essentially time trials. Definite ”one more time” feeling with the races, trying to beat your best tim...

Re: What game is this? (The 70's or 80's)

Thank you guys. This game was used on an old TV show called TV Powww. After Some days of research, I found that it may have been modified by the manufacturer (probably the Intellivision) to meet the TV show needs. There was a version of your "TV Powww” show on the ABC affiliate station I watch...

Re: Stranger Things (Netflix)

Interesting coincidence, we just started watching it last night. Got through the first 2 episodes and like it so far. Very good early 80's vibe. If Stephen King wrote E.T. and had Steven Spielberg direct it, with input (and soundtrack) from John Carpenter, it would be something like this.

Jeez, let it go. Next-gen, last-gen...who cares? If a game is good/worth buying, what difference does it make? If it bothers you so bad, just don't buy it and move on with your life.

Re: Fast Racing Neo on physical media

I bought it back when it came out, but this will be a double-dip for me if a physical version comes to North America.

Re: Halo 5

I can vouch for the horribly long download and install time. Just got the game and popped it in the tray at about 7:30 Saturday morning. Didn't get to play Halo until about 2:00 PM, at which point I wasn't in the mood anymore!
