Re: SNES on 3DS: Not All That

I dislike the way Nintendo handles the Virtual Console. The games are overpriced, there should be cross-console support, and releasing SNES games on the New 3DS only is ridiculous; the original DS probably had enough power to run an SNES emulator. However, I think that when you start making the argu...

Re: Diddy Kong Racing (N64)

Really? Wow, thanks, this game is even better than I thought! Yeah, one of the main things that differentiates it from Mario Kart is the way items work. In Mario Kart they're random of course, and you also get progressively more powerful items as you fall further behind. There are no pity items in ...

Re: Diddy Kong Racing (N64)

The control seems to be better than Mario Kart 64. Also, items aren't a mystery. You drive into balloons, and the color of the balloon indicates what the item is. If it's red, you get a missile, which basically acts as a green shell. If you get blue, it's a boost that acts like a mushroom. Purple i...

Re: Tales of Hardware Failures

Good topic. I've had a few failures: NES Toaster - I was around 8 when we replaced this with a toploader. I'm sure it just needed a pin replacement but this was before the internet. Genesis Model 2 - This broke when I was 10 or so and we replaced with a model 3 from Toys 'R Us for $20. The model 3 s...

Re: Retro Game Service on Ebay

Nice find. I have been thinking about getting the AV mod for my toploader nes. They are priced very well. I might ask my wife to get it for me for my birthday. If you use their services will you post the results?

Re: Games that push you to the limit

Frequency, Amplitude and Guitar Hero 1-3. You have to get into a trance to play those on expert. I'm looking forward to getting back into a trance when the new Amplitude releases for PS3 (did the kickstarter and a little annoyed I have to wait longer than PS4 owners).

Re: Offensive Icons?

The biggest problem I have with the Chicks Dig This icon is that it seems more like a The Critic's Wife Digs this icon. If I were to create a site with a Chicks Dig This icon then I would be putting it on Uncharted, Halo, Rock Band and Sonic the Hedgehog, based on what my wife likes. I don't find th...

Re: Star Wars Battlefront (PS4)

I just started playing this and figured I'd pass along some initial impressions. First, I hate the title. There's ALREADY a Star Wars Battlefront which was released about 11 years ago on the original Xbox. I hate how game companies pretend old games don't exist. This really should be Battlefront 3....

Split Second

I've had this game for a few years but have only played it a bit. Last weekend I dug it up and played with a friend and it is a blast. Unfortunately I only had a few tracks and cars and the rest were locked. So I decided to start digging into the career mode so I could unlock the tracks and cars for...
