Re: You know you're a retro gamer when

The correct answer is 6 buttons. All on the face. Nothing has been right in the world since Sega stopped making controllers for 2d focused consoles.

Re: Best decade for television?

Now, easily. With modern televisions being able to access Netflix and other streaming services, plus the amount of quality cable content, there's literally so much good that you can't hope to watch it all. With that said. Commercials on the channels that still carry them are so thick that you could ...

Re: You know you're a retro gamer when

You've actually played every single good game for your favorite console, no matter what genre they are, and can make a great case for why everyone should at least try the average and bad ones. The bad habits that represents are why you'll never reach the end of your "To play" list. You don...

Re: Perfect Dark (GBC)

One more Sega Portable would have been amazing. With the direction they were headed with their hardware designs, there's a decent chance it might have been a dual 68000 set-up, running at the same resolution as their arcade cabinets - capable of scaling sprites, but not really fast enough for textur...

Re: Perfect Dark (GBC)

The GBC's way past anything a Colecovision could do. Thanks to the overall processing speed, ram, and advances in real time decompression technology, there's really no 8-bit comparison, except that it's limited to 40 sprites on screen, same as the original Gameboy. (It can throw 10 on a single scanl...

Re: Looking for Action RPG's.

If you enjoyed Ys III, you've got to give the remake a go. Ys: The Oath in Felghana, adds to the gameplay and charm without ever losing sight of what made it all work in the first place. You might want to also play some of the modern games. Final Fantasy Adventure on the original Gameboy still has 8...

Re: PS Vita - need game recommendations

Sonic All-Star Racers and Dead or Alive are some of the best 90's style games on the system - they're like a portable arcade, except they blow away anything you could have bought back then. Rogue Legacy is a Metroidvania for sadomasochists. It's the rare combination of short burst thrills and the pr...

Re: Games you like that everyone else hates?

I have a weakness for games that were ambitious in all the wrong ways. Is Need for Speed: Most Wanted a good game? Sure! Is it a good game on the GBA? Well, define "Good." The level design rewards ambition, the unlockables are clear rewards, and how often do you see a 3d game rendered enti...

Re: Games that justify the hardware purchase

Good topic. I bought a Vita just for Assassin's Creed: Liberation. How often do you get a sandbox game where the society they live in, is actually worse than the anti-hero you're playing as? It felt like a rush, to unleash Hell, in a way that GTA couldn't ever offer. But once I saw that intense OLED...
