Re: Retron 5 Review

Did you ever buy this controller that you posted about a while back, Critic? They're actually Retron 5 compatible, if you didn't know. http://videogamecritic.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=134793&t=15296&hilit=8bitdo So if you haven't tried it yet, you should plug the receiver into your Retron 5...

Re: New arcade machine

I can play Lunar Lander pretty well on the easy settings (I'm hopeless if I pick tougher settings), but always wondered if I was missing something important.

I can successfully land 3-4 times, but then that's it since I'm out of rocket fuel. Is there a way to earn additional fuel?

Re: SNES Classic Announced

Best Buy and Amazon both took orders a few hours ago. I believe I got pretty lucky. Happened to check Neogaf even though that place annoys me more often than not, and saw a brand new thread about Best Buy taking preorders that hadn't even been replied to yet. So I got my order in within about the op...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

Anyone else stay up late and get lucky tonight at Best Buy? Orders were open for about 20 minutes a few moments ago.

I imagine other retailers will be following suit before much longer. So keep your eyes open at other retailers like Wal-Mart and Amazon.

Re: Why no 2d Mario (1991-2006)

Super Mario Land 2 was in 1992. And Nintendo didn't discontinue original 2D Mario family platformers on their handhelds afterwards. Subsequent releases from Super Mario Land 3 onward just starred Mario's archrival, Wario. Yoshi also starred in several console spinoffs after this date, with the accla...

Re: Anyone hyped for Samus Returns

Remember that this was the era where 2D gaming still dominated Nintendo's handhelds. They were releasing 2D Zelda, Mario, and Super Mario Brothers content during those years, it just wasn't on home consoles. They even released one of videogaming's greatest accessories of all-time just to bring this ...

Re: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure (32X)

This one might not be great, but it has one of the best endings of any videogame.

Re: Sonic Mania on physical media?

Now that this is out, all the positive reactions and hopefully decent sales can't hurt the chances of this one getting a belated physical release in time for the Christmas shopping season. Sega didn't seem too sure how this one would go over and didn't want to bet too heavily on it and be stuck with...

Re: New arcade machine

Sounds like Space Invaders to me. It not only offers non-traditional controls (At least in the Bally Midway version that we got, with left/right directional buttons in lieu of a joystick), but it's also the best selling space themed arcade game of all time by a huge margin and is only 40,000 units b...
