Re: Keith Robinson

He was still very active in the Classic gaming community, and still getting Intelliviision stuff out there in the stores right up until now. This is very sad news. :(

Re: Gaming subject matter

culture has changed on this to you are free to say what you want, but be prepared for the consequences of your words. Whether its a statue taken down, a comedian fired, a speaker uninvited to speak, sponsors frightened to pull ads from speakers people disagree with, boycotting an entire state due t...

Re: Gaming subject matter

I hate censorship and believe most of the world we live in exists because of free speech (and the way that opened up arts and sciences). The only way to protect that is to protect even horrible expression, as once we start judging and censoring, we're losing the freedom and may censor something impo...

Re: Keep Politics out of video games

I'm not sure where this conversation is going, but I don't believe it''s going to end well. I think this one is well on the way to being a political discussion now. We got talk of "SJWs", gender identity, and the wage gap going on here now, so I'd say we're as deep into Western political d...

Re: Wonder Woman 2017 has redeemed the DC cinematic universe!

My review: Best DC movie since "The Dark Knight." I loved it. It is the most Marvel DC movie yet. It's serious when it needs to be serious, cliche when it needs to be cliche, has a sense of humour, and actually makes you feel like a super hero is a good person. If they make the rest of the...

Re: Just how bad are the Star Wars prequels?

Parts of the prequels are great - every scene with Palpatine, for instance. Unfortunately, it tried to demystify everything the first movie introduced. Compare Qui Jonn and his midichlorian reader to Obi Wan first describing the force in mystical religious language. It also retreads the same ground...

Re: Just how bad are the Star Wars prequels?

I think they're pretty terrible. I liked them all a little when first seeing them, but the problem is that these are Star Wars movies. That means geeks like us will watch them many, many times. Episodes 4,5,6 and 7 stand up incredibly well to repeat viewings (dozens and dozens of repeat viewings ove...

Re: Wonder Woman 2017 has redeemed the DC cinematic universe!

My wife arranged us babysitting to see this tomorrow. The local cinema gets one movie a week (playing for multiple nights, obviously), so we generally go to every movie that comes in. The interesting part is that my wife made all the arrangements for this one, so it seems like she is more stoked to ...

Re: Nintendo has best customer service

The number is also easy to find physically; no need to google. It's on their products. Look on the bottom of your 3DS for example. If your NES is closer, just look on that (it's still the same number). On Retrogaming Roundup they called the number on the NES during the podcast once and were surprise...
