Re: Bug Movies

Arachnophobia - This is one that I enjoy, but I have a hard time sitting through. Spiders in general just creep me out and the thought of them crawling about these actors makes my skin crawl! The film has a good vibe and energy though...it's enjoyable to watch. The fact that these used either real s...

Re: Bug Movies

Whenever I think about "Bug Movies" the first thing that comes to mind is Starship Troopers. Sure it's not your typical giant insect type film...but it kind of is. I re-watched this film about a year ago and was surprised at how well it held up. It's got some neat practical effects and doe...

Re: Music Biz - Streaming, Piracy, itunes

I rarely buy CDs anymore(though I do occasionally get music on Amazon or iTunes), nowadays I generally listen to music on Youtube. I don't do Spotify or Pandora much either, mainly because they don't give you a choice in what songs you're listening to, it's all random. Good call on youtube. I watch...

Re: Music Biz - Streaming, Piracy, itunes

I'm a pretty big music fan, but I only buy a handful of CDs a year. It's usually me going back and checking out a band or artist that I'm interested in. For instance, right now I'm in the mood to get something from Peter Gabriel and/or Van Morrison. I still buy CDs. Like videogames I very much like ...

Re: Summer Reading

I just finished reading "Horns" by Joe Hill. Basic premise is that the main character wakes up after a night of binge drinking and discovers he has a set of horns growing out of his head. Along with the new head gear he starts getting special powers. The main plot involves around this char...

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

That Evil Dead series is going to be awesome. The trailer looks like it's a mixture of mostly Evil Dead/Evil Dead II with a sprinkling of Army of Darkness. I can't wait. I'll be ordering Starz just to watch it! I personally hated the Evil Dead remake and thought for sure that the series was doomed a...

Re: 2015/7/4: Nintendo 64: Waialae Country Club, Rampage 2

Yeah, good call on the cheap hits. A new Rampage game would need to be more suited for console play. It can retain the easy pick up and play arcade gameplay...just don't make it seem like the game is trying to get you to sink more quarters into your PS4. I think what I've always wanted out of a Ramp...

Re: Instruction Manual Idea

Much like developing a great videogame there is an art in constructing an instruction manual. The 90s were the heyday of the best instruction manuals. Many manuals not only told you how to play the game, but they had background details about enemies, original artwork, story elements and sometimes ev...

Re: Mortal Kombat Series

I have in fact played Shaolin Monks...and I reviewed it on this site many years ago. Here is what I said about it in 2006! "The game is basically a MK fantatics dream come true. You get to play out the storyline from the end of MK1 to the beginning of MK3 (arguably the best time period of the f...

Re: Would Mobile Phone Gaming with Real Controls be better?

I've got a smart phone, and an iPad. The games on these things are not good. Even the best ones don't come near typical portable gaming standards. Also, most of them are either free to play with ads or schemes to make you spend money to play more. I no longer use either of my devices for standard vi...
