So I assume it's about an invincible dark elf who wins every fight he's ever in then? :P

Re: Bad Games You Have to Play

ET (Atari 2600, 1982) is another. Everybody talks about this, but you really need to try it first-hand to form a real opinion. This one is definitely a lot better than people think. Reading the manual and keeping the time period in mind helps. Yes, some QA would have made the pits a little harder t...

Skylanders Giants (Dad review)

So this summer when I was at an EB Games in Charlottetown PEI on family vacation, I saw that they had Skylanders Giants for Wii used and with a portal for $10. They also had a bin of used Skylanders for $1.49 each. I showed them to my 4 year old son and, thus, began his first real gaming obsession. ...

Re: PS3 SciFi FPS

I'm in the same boat, looking for the same thing. My wife doesn't know I know she got me a new PS3 for Christmas (I have a limit to how much I will pay for a console, and PS4 is not there, so I've started hinting about wanting a PS3). I have a ton of games for it already (from PS+ which I have had f...

Re: Sonic '06 (PS3)

Thought it was about time I tried this out myself sometimes when a game gets a bad rap everyone hits on it for the laughs. I believe Vexer/Darkrage got some enjoyment out of it. I'm thinking of playing Sega's PS3 output chronologically to how low they dropped before picking up again with Generation...

Re: Console fragmentation and consequences

Here's the thing, I follow gaming news and personalities pretty well. Generally, when something is a big deal, everyone talks about it, endlessly, whether or not it is something I care about. Aside from some modest, and even then restrained, cheerleading on big sites like IGN, I do not see anyone, a...

Re: Virtual Thoughts on Virtual Reality

Rush of Blood is available on disc. Is that the haunted house game you're talking about? Honestly I don't think damaging your TV is going to be an issue like it was with the Wii. Many VR games use the Dual Shock and the Move controllers have those rubber balls on the top to prevent breaking everyth...

Re: Virtual Thoughts on Virtual Reality

I really don't see this taking off. It's an absolutely fine little fad I guess for 20 somethings with disposable income, tons of time, and no kids and maybe no spouse. For me to tell my wife "yeah honey. I'll be in the basement like when I watch football, but now I won't hear you if you shout o...

Re: Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

How are you liking Xenogears so far, RetroStrife? Good and bad. I just don't have time for RPGs anymore! It's so tough to get to. This has been my main game for like a year now and I'm only 25 hours in! And then I looked at the Table of Contents on a Gamefaqs walkthrough and realized that my curren...

Re: Where does the time go?

I was just thinking about this the other day, but with my more modern console options. I was thinking about how I would no doubt be getting an NX in a couple years, and how that'd be the fourth Nintendo console in my life since I started having careers. The Gamecube I bought in University, but start...
