I ask because I think the old one had trolls posting bogus stuff.

I vote start fresh.

Re: Lessons of 8th Generation console launches

I wouldn't call Sony the winner by default just yet, as Microsoft still has a couple of big exclusives lined up for the holiday season this year(plus there's also the feature allowing players to stream gameplay onto Windows 10, which will undoubtedly be a selling point) in Halo 5 and Rise of the To...

Re: Lessons of 8th Generation console launches

It sounds like Nintendo is starting to do the same thing as Sega with releasing a new console in such a short period of time. Just reading this thread now, so sorry I missed this earlier. What exactly are you referring to here? Did Nintendo announce a new system for next year? Because a typical Nin...

Re: Bring Back High Score Challenge?

Definitely don't need to rely on the honour system. I got annoyed one time after a high score controversy on Atariage because people still didn't want to require pics, because "maybe everyone didn't have a digital camera." My 3DS, 3DS XL, laptop, work phone, personal Blackberry, and new an...

Re: Game room thread!

Nice! Very well organized, and I love the Sega collection.


I am jealous. I am currently without house. We moved home for my new job, and until our last house sells, we're just window shopping for new houses. :( Every house we've been to see, I've been checking for possible game rooms.

Re: Amiibos?

My opinion is still positive, and has even modified to be somewhat more so. I don't think I could disagree more scotland. Think about it like this instead of how you are thinking about it: A little kid wants to buy DLC. The little kid either has to a) Bug Mom and Dad for their credit card to buy thi...

Re: Final Fantasy XIII-2 for PS3 and 360

Great review. As for the microtransactions/DLC, Square is probably the worst traditional gaming company in the world for this. They don't really understand how to make something in this space that makes money without it being a huge pain. Look at "Final Fantasy: All the Bravest" to see the...

Re: Idea for a Theme Week

Just got my girls a trampoline so for me it's {Trampoline Week}. Only game that come to mind are Super Mario Bros. & Mappy. Mappy! I LOVE Mappy. We should do Mappy month. Or Mappy year. I had the Famicom one as a kid (we had one of those pirate carts), and I also had this: https://www.youtube.c...

Re: PC gaming gives me a headache

When I read the title of this thread, I expected you to complain about software issues, because that's my biggest gripe about PC gaming--namely, the fact that it's tethered to Windows, a horrible operating system. :evil: Actually, if it was about anything besides real, physical headaches, it'd be a...

Re: PC gaming gives me a headache

I recently purchased "PC glasses" while in Japan last week. I've no idea whether this is a popular product in the US or not, but I find it's an useful product when sitting up close to one one of my arcade monitors: my eyes no longer itch anymore! It might also help reducing headaches for ...
