Re: The Nintendo Switch game ports are like the modern equivalent to the Sega Saturn ports!

I don't really see the comparison. Different times, different tastes, different approaches to game development, different century (lol). Looking back, I see the fifth generation of gaming as being the 3D equivalent of the Atari 2600 era: fascinating new technology that was doomed to be viewed as bei...

Re: Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

@VGC: Awesome! An Air Raid review has definitely been one of the big missing pieces on this site for a while, though until you had a Harmony cart it was more than understandable. Looking forward to that and the others. :) @mbd36: I came to like Bad Dudes quite a bit more once I learned the game eno...

Re: Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

I’ve been patiently waiting for years for Dave to finally review Konami’s Prince of Persia on SNES! I’m honestly surprised that it has eluded him, since it is possibly the best 2D PoP, and one of my favorite games on the system! Beautiful, amazing music, fantastic level design! It’s a game that hasn...

Re: Sega Genesis Mini

I don’t know if I would call the lineup spotty at all. Even as a huge fan of the SNES Classic, I think the Genesis Mini trumps it. The fact that it includes two Mickey games, Road Rash 2, and Mega Man: The Wily Wars is pretty impressive in itself! My only complaint with the lineup are the completely...

Re: What was your best goodwill video game find?

It wasn’t Goodwill, but I snagged a CIB copy of Earthbound—in very good condition, nonetheless—for $15 at Acme Comics in 2001! I sold it, eleven years later, for nearly $300!

Re: Google Stadia is the saviour of gaming.

I believe you already know the answer to this, Sonic. It just doesn't matter what all the countless talking heads on the Internet think. What matters is what you think, and more importantly, what you think for yourself. Be careful not to let someone else make up your mind for you, or as Bob Dylan w...

Re: Google Stadia is the saviour of gaming.

How do you know that it’s a troll post? If anything, the guy just seems genuinely excited for it. Dude, you genuinely seem upset/agitated that somebody out there may actually be excited for it, and it makes no sense. They’re video games. Take a deep breath and stop letting these non-issues get to you:

Re: What happened to western AAA games lately?

Hmm, I don’t see a problem. As you pointed out, PS4 has seen the likes of Spider-Man, Until Dawn, The Last of Us (and it’s pending sequel), GTA V (which is closing in on 100 million copies sold), Red Dead Redemption II, God of War, Crash trilogy, and so forth. Citing one company’s epic blunder (Fall...

Re: Looks like Google Stadia and Atari VCS is in trouble for smaller devs!

I recently contacted Microids (best known for the recent 2018 Flashback release) on Facebook for Google Stadia and Atari VCS support and they said "Hi, it's not planned sorry". This is already a red flag for both upcoming and unproven newcomer Google and returning after long hiatus Atari ...

Re: Will you miss Game Stop

Nope. Good riddance! I was sad when Babbages closed, but GameStop? Not at all! They did this to themselves.
