Re: What systems do you have hooked up and ready to go?

I have a PS3, PS4 and Wii U hooked up on the main floor. I play most of my modern games here. But my favorite place to play is the loft/man cave. I have a 32 inch Philips HDTV with a second PS4 and 360 hooked up. I have a LaCie Electron 22 Blue IV 22" CRT computer monitor with a Dreamcast hooke...

Re: Whats wrong with this image?

Those gators should have known they'd get stuck in the tar pit. What a graphic 8-bit death!

Re: What happened to 2d

There's like a half dozen 2d Contra games released since the 16 bit era. Shattered Soldier (PS2), Neo Contra (PS2)-- isometric, but still 2d-- Contra 4 (DS), Contra ReBirth (WiiWare). Hard Corps Uprising is a sequel (of sorts) to the Genesis game, has excellent hand drawn sprites from Arc System Wor...

Re: What happened to 2d

When Jon posts, I've seen a trend of him ignoring responses from people. It's the reason why so many modern 2d games have been listed here and his response is "yeah, there's just no more 2d games," as though he didn't read the suggestions given or didn't bother looking the games up. This i...

Re: Sega 3D Classics Collection (3DS)

I have the game and the ports are really impressive. I don't have a modded or Japanese PS2, so this is the only way I can play Phantasy Zone II Dx/W. Really happy to have a physical copy of that game. But, like Dave, I find the omissions to be truly heartbreaking. Three games that absolutely should ...

Re: New PS4 games at Target

Critic, you should ABSOLUTELY play Tearaway Unfolded on PS4. It's a pretty excellent remake of the Vita title replacing the Vita's unique capabilities with those of the dual shock 4 (gyroscope, touchpad, light bar, camera if you have one). What's more is the framerate is doubled to 60 fps and the re...

Re: Favorite Baseball Games

Well, this may mark one of the first times Jon and I have agreed on something. Because I think Baseball Stars 2 (Neo Geo) might be my favorite Baseball game of all time. Fantastic graphics and animations, great use of color, fun sound design, solid arcade mechanics... fantastic game. Also, I really ...

@Scotland - oh man. I don't think the Critic likes these types of threads. Are you trying to get me banned?!?! Ha ha

Re: Sega - 15 years later

A joint Sega/Nintendo console??? While technically that would still probably be considered a second tier console, it would still be a must buy. Instead of the attitude of "I'll buy a PlayStation or XBox... and maybe a Wii U," it would turn into, "I will get a PlayStation or XBox event...
