Re: 1982 Usenet Posts about the K.C. Munchin/Pac-Man Lawsuit

A thoughtful conversation that covers all the relevant issues involved, without anyone tearing each other apart?

I wish this was the direction the information age had gone...

Re: 2017/12/30: Nintendo 64: NHL 99

Thanks for these sports reviews. I've generally avoided the entire genre, but you provide a clear user-friendly explanation about the differences between a good game, an average one, and a bad title that has me rethinking the entire genre. At the very least, I'm tempted to play my first post NES hoc...

Re: Pick only one console per generation.

I don't think anyone's as angry about your flouting the extremely nebulous categories of console generations as you seem to enjoy imagining them to be. It's all just convenient shorthand for grouping the biggest names. I doubt any of the regulars are. They generally seem pretty cool about things. B...

Re: Pick only one console per generation.

I can always swap my answer out for a Sega CDX, which is a single console in the exact same way a Saturn was.

But yeah, if we count the Sega CD as a completely different platform, than I'd love to know why Turbo CD games don't get their own listing on this site?

Re: Pick only one console per generation.

The entire concept of generations is flawed. The Atari XE and the PC Engine were released in the same year, but Atari's console is using technology from an entire decade previous, and nobody will compare it to the Genesis and SNES. If we're going to play games with all of this - Generation 0: The Br...

Re: 2017/12/14: Playstation 4: Retro City Rampage DX, Tekken 7

You nailed it on Retro City Rampage. It may be the only 8-bit themed game where the presentation and intentional humor blow away the actual gameplay. As for Tekken... Why is it an issue whenever a game features a cast as diverse as the neighborhood I live in? It's utterly mad to think a worldwide ma...

Re: Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

I feel like the odd one out here. I didn't discover how brilliant the game was until recent, because everything about Mario 64 instantly rubbed me the wrong way. Starting with "It's a me, Mario!" This was what going to curbstomp Sega, and kill off my beloved Saturn? I hated the bright prim...

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

To be fair, I had to watch the movie twice before I caught that it demonstrated her knowledge of the Falcoln was entirely force based. I don't blame anyone for questioning whether she's a Mary Sue. I did. Same as I did for Anakin. That really wasn't the best way to handle the kid. But she's just a p...

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

Rey is a Mary Sue? Rey? Snarls at Han for offering her a gun, beats the shit out of Finn before asking a single question, and runs in terror from her first Force Vision Rey? The Rey who nearly crashed the Falcoln until the force saved them? The Rey who beat an injured man in a lightsaber duel with t...

Re: Best and worst sports consoles

I can't believe that the 2600 sports library is getting more credit and attention than the Intellivision's. Also, right now, the PSP blows away every other portable gaming console out of the water when it comes to the sports titles. It's the most underrated system library ever made Finally: all cred...
