Re: SNES Classic Announced

Nintendo has proven many times over that they purposefully underproduce their products. Seeing $250 NES Classics didn't make me angry at the resellers. It made me angry with Nintendo. I want to give you my $60, Nintendo. Why won't you take it? The official word is they are going to make "substa...

Re: Have you ever bought a reproduction?

Atariboy wrote: Does this reproduction require some trickery like a mod chip or disc swap like in the old days, or is the Saturn cracked well enough where reproductions boot on factory hardware? Good question. It's something called Pseudo Saturn. You flash an Action Replay cart and as long as the c...

Have you ever bought a reproduction?

So, just bought a reproduction of the Sega Saturn holy grail, Panzer Dragoon Saga. If I had gotten into Saturn collecting years ago, I would have been more than willing to drop $250 on this RPG. But it's now $700 regularly on eBay and I've seen it sell for as much as $1000. There's holy grail and th...

Re: Physical Release Thread

I'm not a PC gamer at all. When Sony revealed before their conference proper that Undertale was coming to PS4 and Vita in physical form, I was beside myself with happiness! I've been wanting to play this one for over 2 years. I cannot wait! For those who like indie games but like physical releases, ...

Re: 2017/6/14: Dreamcast: Skies of Arcadia

Like some of the other posters here, I own both the DC and GCN versions of this game. As stated, the biggest plus for the Dreamcast is the incredible audio and music which was compressed for the GameCube. As a fan of video game soundtracks, that is reason enough to play through the Dreamcast version...

Hit the nail on the head, Dave. These two sentences sum up my feelings exactly.

Re: Yet again Square-Enix slaps Americans in the face when it comes to Secret of Mana

I might get shunned by our VGF community for saying this, but consumers don't *have* to lose. Emulate the games. If a game is released by the original company for virtual console or a physical release, BUY IT. Show the companies there is still money to be made on these old projects. But if they're *...

Re: Physical Release Thread

Yeah, Axiom Verge is basically NES Metroid. And since Nintendo's concept of releasing a Metroid game is Federation, this is probably the closest we'll get of the traditional 2d Metroid action. I played the game last year on Vita (digital only, obviously) and it's really excellent. I love 2d Metroidv...

Re: "Mostly Gone" Genres

Scotland mentioned rail shooters/light gun games and he's very right. There are a couple on PSVR-- my friend has one and playing the Until Dawn spinoff is actually pretty amazing-- but other than that, there's not much. I actually bought a move & nav controller for PS3 *last year* (well after th...

Re: Tekken 7

I'm planning on getting it for PS4 after a major price drop. I'm not interested at all in the series, but review scores have been way too high to ignore. Sounds like a good time!
