Re: Blast Corps (N64): A

Yeah, for sure. I agree with you on arcade style/linear 3D games holding up better. I do think it's fascinating to explore some of the earlier ones though, and SM64/Banjo Kazooie have aged really well IMO. As for Blast Corps, critics complained it was too repetitive and short, which is crap. The am...

Re: eShop Pricing Makes No Sense

Physical retailers and hardware companies are partners. Nintendo could sell digitally for less, but as long as they still get a large percentage of their hardware and software sales through those physical partners, then there is a risk that if they undercut them with lower digital download prices f...

Good downloadable content

I know many of us here are very anti-digital, but I'm curious to hear any positive experiences with downloadable content (DLC). Lately I haven't bought a lot of DLC. I don't stick with most online games long enough that I feel justified buying the DLC. I thought maybe I'd play Star Wars Battlefront ...

Re: New PS4 games at Target

Yeah I'll second the life is strange suggestion. I'm playing through with my wife right now. We've only played the first episode and it's not my favorite game in the wold but it's very unique. It feels like a classic adventure game with a modern twist. And I haven't played Game of Thrones but it's a...

Re: eShop Pricing Makes No Sense

Yeah I saw that sale posted and agree it's a joke. Usually when Sony or Microsoft have a spring sale there are at least a couple dirt cheap items that i bite on, but this Nintendo sale has nothing. The only retail Nintendo digital games I have are ones they gave to me for free, and Wind Waker which ...

Re: Xbox 360 Hidden Gems?

I'm with ya esauce. After reading Dave's review I was salivating to play ABC. De-listed. Why?! It's a licensing thing; that's always what it is. What gets me is in this age of patching games, would it not be more profitable for them to just update the game to reskin the vehicles so there's no licen...

Re: Blast Corps (N64): A

I remember renting it as a kid and not playing much; at the time I was looking for nothing but 3d platformers and kart racers. However, I went back to it recently on the Rare Replay collection and it has aged much better than the other 64 games in that platformer. I still have tons of fond memories ...

Re: Xbox 360 Hidden Gems?

After Burner Climax - super sweet arcade game that makes me dream of what a Dreamcast 2 would look like. Ah man, I only recently played After Burner II as a 3d classic on 3ds so I never noticed this game before. And now it's delisted! It was removed from both xbox live and the playstation store in ...

Yeah, I forgot about that one. I was very proud of myself when I beat that final stage.

Re: Criticize Your Favorite Video Game!

Skyward Sword - I think this is the best 3d Zelda but even as one of its biggest defenders I admit the motion controls get annoying sometimes. Batman Arkham Knight - No options to remap the controls! I actually love the batmobile and tank batmobile, but I hate how right trigger changes you to tank m...
