Grim Fandango (PS4)

I wanted a PS4 in large part to check out Grim Fandango.  This game makes all of the top X lists for adventure games and rightfully so.<br /><br />The voice acting is amazing.  Even though this game is almost 20 years old it, it holds up incredibly well.  There's a very film noire vib...

Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars

I played it on the Gameboy Advance and loved it!<br /><br />I bought 5 for the Vita.  I'm pretty sure I'm getting dumber with age and need a walkthrough to make much progress in it.<br /><br />Regardless, I've been smitten by Nico as well.  <br /><br />This week's Humble Bundle is offering...

Remembering the Xbox

Yeah, I couldn't agree with you more.<br /><br />The Xbox gave us some of that generation's best games.<br /><br />Knights of the Old Republic<br />Crimson Skies<br />Halo 1 and 2<br /><br />And then throw in all the other awesome sauce games<br /><br />Mech Assault<br />Project Gotham Racing<br />J...

Nintendo really needs better marketing

<p>I wonder if it's intentional?<br /><br />Kind of like Apple and their iPhones and iPads.<br /><br />I've lost track of what each does and which ones support x features.  Could Nintendo be intentionally migrating toward a PC like architecture where every hardware release supports software tha...

Top 25 Multiplayer Games of All Time

I would humbly like to nominate the following:<br /><br /><strong>Halo: Combat Evolved</strong><br /><br />What console game at the time supported up to 16 players all without having to get online?<br /><br /><strong>Wii Sports</strong><br />Even my wife would play this.<br /><br /><strong>Sambe De ...

2015/1/24: Xbox One: Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Sunset Overdrive

IMHO when you look at the current library of games for the Xbox One, Sunset Overdrive moves into the B or B+ range.  Now, if you're comparing it against the Wii U's library then a C is certainly fair.  However, we're not.  We're comparing it against what other games are on the Xbox On...

Online Gaming with 90s Consoles

My earliest was the Dreamcast.  I first tried out the 56k modem that came with it but never really played anything with it other than Chu Chu Land? until Phantasy Star Online came out.  I bought the broadband adapter for it and played that quite a bit back in the day.<br /><br />That was m...

Why has there been no crash like in 1983

[QUOTE=ptdebate]<br />Although there was competition, that competition bore no fruits: almost everyone here will agree that the Jaguar, 3DO, and Neo Geo home console produced little to nothing of lasting value that wasn't already available elsewhere.<br />[/QUOTE]<br /><br />Tempest 2000, Aliens vs ...
