Re: Instruction Manual Idea

As much as I love manuals, gaming has reached a point where some of the basics no longer need explaining now that gaming is more mainstream. While in game tutorials and cut scenes cover advanced controls and story exposition that was previously impractical to put in the game itself (i.e frame based ...

Re: Classic vs Modern Gaming: Where's the line?

Should there be 'classic' and 'modern' gaming sub forums on here?

Should there instead be forums dedicated to each 'decade' of consoles (per the way the Critic divides the consoles on his front page)?

Re: U.S CDi disc underside appearence?

I attach images of what I believe are legitimate E.U and U.S CDi discs. I also attach a third image of an apparent U.S CDi game I'm not sure about?

Re: Add review dates to console reviewa?

Indeed, I was referring to the reviews of the consoles, rather than the games.

My apologies for not making that clearer :)

U.S CDi disc underside appearence?

May I ask the Critic or someone else with a CDi, what do the undersides of U.S CDi game discs look like?

Do they all have 'printed in the U.S' or similar on the inner ring of the underside (like how E.U ones all have 'made in Germany' on them) or were some of the blank?

Add review dates to console reviews?

Pretty much what the subject states?

I figure that would help viewers with regards to the relevancy of the text (i.e prices. collectability etc)?

Re: 3DO VR Stalker 'improved version'?

The first mission briefing display is different; the U.S version displays a still of the air control tower with yellow text over the top, while the E.U version has a computer screen like background and different green text. However, the game itself is pretty unremarkable (i.e not really interesting ...

3DO VR Stalker 'improved version'?

When VR Stalker for the 3DO was released in the E.U, by BMG Interactive, it gained a yellow label calling it an 'improved version'.

Does anyone know what was improved/changed?

Re: World Video Game Hall of Fame

Regarding WOW; is it possible that the forum regulars are simply showing their age?

Re: Anybody played Splatoon for the Wii U?

I wouldn't buy Splatoon unless one is into online play and online updates; the base game is apparently pretty bare in both SP and MP, but Nintendo are releasing weekly content updates for the next couple of months (already a new map, new game mode and a couple of new weapons).
