Pokken Tournament (Wii U)

This is Pokemon's rather interesting take on the fighting game genre. It combines ideas from other popular fighters, but it's very much its own game regardless. The learning curve may be steeper than you might expect if you're used to games like Super Smash Bros, but fans of traditional fighting gam...

Re: Super Mario Bros 3 vs Super Mario World

I give the nod to SMB3 because of it having more variety in just about everything from powerups to level design. Don't get me wrong though, SMW is awesome in its own ways too.

Re: Critic: A physical release you might be interested in...

Hotline Miami is an odd case for the sequel (at least for me) improving literally nothing about the formula introduced in the original and instead introducing several new flaws. I found the first to be quite fun for the most part, but the second was much more of a slog to me.

Re: Does Random/Procedural Generation make games better?

Procedural generation can breathe more life into a game than pre-made levels assuming they are executed well. How long would you play Spelunky be if the levels were the exact same every time you started it up? The intricacy of its gameplay would be wasted as a result.

Re: Critic: Sonic Game Gear Review Request?

These are all available in either Sonic Mega Collection Plus or Sonic Gems Collection, but I'm not sure what the VGC's policy is about reviewing games for their original systems if he only owns said games as ports on a collection. It's likely that he hasn't found actual Game Gear cartridges of any o...

Mega Man Legacy Collection

This is a collection of the NES Mega Man games (1 through 6). That may not sound like much, but this collection offers plenty of bells and whistles such as a series of NES Remix-style challenges, a museum of various artwork and other Mega Man memorabilia, and even a "database" feature that...

Re: Least Favorite 2D Sonic Games?

Sonic Blast (Game Gear, not to be confused with Sonic 3D Blast) tries to use pseudo-3D graphics, but winds up looking ugly as hell. The gameplay itself is sluggish, and the big sprites make everything seem cramped. But Sonic Jam (Tiger Game.com) is without a doubt the worst Sonic game ever made (2D ...

Games everyone seems to like but you

What are some games that you just can't bring yourself to appreciate the same way the majority of other people who've played it have? One big example for me would be the original Strider. So many people hail this as a platforming masterpiece, but I see it as having janky controls (especially when it...

Re: Will they ever release Snatcher on a modern console?

Considering how low Konami has fallen in the past year with regards to caring about its fans, it sounds unlikely. At least we'll always have emulation.

Where's The Fair Use?

I'm not sure if any of you watch Nostalgia Critic, but he recently posted a video about how flawed YouTube's copyright policies are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVqFAMOtwaI The testimonies from him and a couple other reviewers are pretty shocking and do a good job of bringing this issue to light...
