Re: Games you didn't think you'd like but did?

Overwatch. I saw it get a 10 in Game Informer and thought to myself, "huh, an online only team based shooter getting a 10 in Game Informer. Uh oh, am I too old for modern gaming?" Well, I decided to rent it to try it out and instantly became addicted and bought it. It can still be frustrat...

Re: 2017/1/20: Genesis: Thunder Force III, Atomic Runner

I'm only a casual shooter fan at best, but your high praise for Thunder Force III made me add it to my to-buy list. Loose copies go for about $30 though, so I'll wait for a deal (like $20) since I don't play shooters much. Thanks for the review. I just snagged one for $20 on eBay last night so keep...

Re: 2017/1/18: Xbox: Arctic Thunder, Spikeout: Battle Street

Man Critic, sometimes I prefer when the reviews are for awful games or systems I don't have. Now I'm wanting this game and Thunder Force III from your last set of reviews. It's easier on my wallet when you review Vectrex games. Haha

Re: Another reason to hate the digital age

Wow, 73GB download for MW? Makes me wonder how the Switch is going to get 3rd party devs to come one board with such low storage capacity. It's not as though the 500GB provided by the Xbox One is enough for even a small library of games of this size. Honestly, the Xbox One might as well have 32GB o...

Re: 2017/1/22: Wii U: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

I wasn't really saying there was a conspiracy, though there could be underhanded reasons 10/10 isn't given to some games. I still think it's true that reviewers are hesitant to give out 10/10 grades for games they have no criticisms for. In fact, maybe the fear of controversy is why they don't. Also...

Re: 2017/1/22: Wii U: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero

I've noticed that game publications often seem afraid of giving a game a 10 unless it is a AAA title with 40 hours or more of gameplay. Shovel knight, Paper Mario Color Splash and this title are recent games that I've seen no flaws noted in reviews, but then they arbitrarily don't get a 10. It's as ...

Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

Will Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in April and Splatoon 2 next summer be enough to tide people over until Super Mario Odyssey this Christmas? I'm not so sure since even Splatoon 2 seems to have felt more like a port to people than a sequel. I've read previews of that game that said it felt like a port and n...

Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

The thing is, even if I can sympathize with the reason it has to be $300 that doesn't make that price any more appealing. If I open a sandwich shop and charge $15 a sandwich because I can't get a good relationship with suppliers as a new business, does my reason the sandwich is $15 matter? No, peop...

Re: Nintendo Switch: Boom or Bust?

Boom. (I gotta play devil's advocate here) Guys. Don't buy into all the negativity. Think back to when the Nintendo Wii was announced and how folks discredited it from the get go. I can remember all the articles announcing it could never compete with the PS3 and Xbox 360. Somehow the system that di...
