Re: Tiger Handhelds

AvGN was right....everyone knew that they were barely video games and as primitive as you can imagine....yet EVERYBODY had one. Gameboy was affordable, but most people would rather buy 2-3 new NES games, that the gameboy plus a game (of sub-NES quality) and a ton of batteries. This was an uber cheap...

Re: Goldeneye (Nintendo 64)

As dumb as it sounds, I remembered liking how the gun from your perspective was angled off center. First time I had seen that. Little things like that set this game apart for its time.

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

FYI: James Rolfe (aka Angry Video Game Nerd) does a horror movie review everyday during the month of October called "Monster Maddness". This is the 9th year. I don't like horror movies and I still enjoy this. They are brief, informative, and usually humorous.

Re: Goldeneye (Nintendo 64)

It's true that it hasn't aged well. Back in the day, Wen we played, it always the licensed to kill mode--aka, one shot and you're dead, usually with pistols. To me, it is much more enjoyable than everyone running around like they are Rambo. Not being able to jump is glaring, but I like that better. ...

3D platform jumping

Anybody else struggle with this, or am I just getting too old? Been spending time with Super Mario Sunshine, and have had more success with the FLUDD system, which occurred when I learned how to use it to control my jumps. But enter the levels where the FLUDD is taken, and FAIL! Having the hardest t...

Re: My first impressions of Super Mario Sunshine

Fired up the GC and Sunshine today, since it's my only system and game (along with Ocarina Master Quest), and I am not having fun. Pretty much the same problems as the original post. I enjoyed M64, and haven't played the Galaxy games or the Wii U ones, but this one just seems so gimmicky. The contro...

Clearly, the Critic has been kidnapped and replaced with this imposter, who is going to start going into the great beyond known as online gaming. We can't let that happen! We've got to find Dave before it's too late!!

Re: Super Mario Maker

That's the issue. Levels that insane aren't even tempting for me. Likewise, there are a bunch of dumb levels, as well. I do like the little x's that show where everybody died and how you can leave short comments in certain spots. Nice touch. I wonder if some of the better designers will wind up with...

Re: Super Mario Maker

Wow, good job with that essay....lol. For me, games where create things (even as simple as creating your own player in sports games) are not tempting. But, still, I would like to play SMM just to try out the levels others have made. But I can also see myself getting annoyed with trying to weed out t...
