Re: A Boy and His Blob (Wii) – Charm Offensive

Nicely done. Welcome to the forums, and I think you'll find some people here who will appreciate your reviews. For those of you who do not want to watch the video, the text of the review above is the dialogue from the video. I found the video capture sharp, and the narration clear and at a good pace...

Re: Set up console before christmas

Christmas day is more about spending time with family, so I see no problem letting your games/updates install while enjoying the other Christmas traditions. You probably won't get any serious game time in until the day after Christmas anyway. Not disagreeing, but Christmas day is also the day to ga...

Re: River Raid (Atari 2600)

Please try River Raid's first cousin.....Activision's H.E.R.O. Instead of going up a river, you'll be going down into caverns. This game should be on everyone's top-10 list of 2600 games....... I am chiming in because I currently have my Colecovision hooked up and played a few games of H.E.R.O. unt...

Re: Star wars Battlefronts 2 available for everything but Switch

Wow. I just read that the US and Belgium are investigating this as gambling for minors. I hope EA gets their butts sued off. Its based off the contents of the loot boxes being random. Does that make it gambling? That sounds like a stretch to me, since all sorts of coin op machines have random eleme...

Re: Atari Box update

Interesting - they do look like they gave a classic boxy Atari 2600 controller to an art student, and said, 'make it slick'. Several issues 1) The button is not raised up enough 2) Why not a button on each side for both right and left handed people? (or a button on the top of the joystick) 3) Why no...

Re: RIP Wii U 5th birthday!

The other reason is that Nintendo marketed the console poorly, resulting in lackluster sales. You don't want to spend millions making games for consoles that lack an install base. While I agree that install base leads to more games leads to larger install base .... I question the impact of marketin...

They may have saved some of IMdB's forum content.


Thanks! Movie chat does look like the old IMdB forums, with the forums going back several years at least.

Re: Battlefront 2 micro transactions Cancelled for realease!

This story has percolated up past gaming media now. Stories in mainstream media are ripping EA, its old executives who Don't care about the industry, and microtransactions in general and how deep a mess it is for the industry. Also that Disney, who is merchandising the heck out of Star Wars and need...
