Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

I’ve been experiencing something similar to this myself. I’m thirty-seven, and any time I boot up a game and invest time into it, I almost get depressed because....well, life just seems to be moving at such an accelerated pace, and I feel like I should be investing that lost time into something more...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

I doubt that a mini PS1 would ever happen, for one reason alone: the cost. Unlike Nintendo, Sony doesn’t have a wealth of top-tier first party titles to rely on. The best titles for the system have always been the games released by third parties, who would be entitled to a royalty. So, if you had a ...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

And I love my Switch also, but the success of the NES Classic isn’t predicated on the pending failure of an entire industry, because sales figures do state otherwise. When people, en mass, get tired of something, that something stops selling. It happened with disco, with MC Hammer, with the entire v...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

I'm glad Nintendo is finally pumping out the NES Classic in reasonable volumes, so people can actually buy them. But I have to admit I was shocked it outsold all the modern consoles in June! https://www.theverge.com/2018/8/2/17642236/nes-classic-npd-sales-data-june-2018 How is this possible, and wh...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

Yep. The difference between Nintendo and Sony is that third party developers will take the occasional big-budget risk on PlayStation. When is the last time that happened on a Nintendo console (Bayonetta doesn’t count)? Probably Mondter Hunter Tri, or Dragon Quest X in Japan,and I remember reading so...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

Man, even though I am a fan of the Switch, I would still recommend PS4. Switch has a few great exclusives, but don’t kid yourself by thinking that it trumps PS4, which has: -Bloodborne -Uncharted 4 -Horizon: Zero Dawn -God of War -GT Sport -Until Dawn -Infamous: Second Son -The Last Guardian -Ni Nu ...

Re: What do your the kids in your life think of these games?

I try to carve out a little bit of time, every week, to game with my four year old daughter. I don’t let her play anything beyond NES, at the moment, because the controls are a bit overwhelming. Actually, I do have a funny/cute story. So, I managed to get my mitts on an NES Classic, which excited me...

Re: is the raspberry pi console or pc good for retro games ?

Personally, considering space and budget, I’m all for emulation....but there’s a caveat. I won’t download the games that are all but guaranteed to be released, unless I own it on another device. For instance, I just sent my SNES Classic away to have games added on. For the most part, I requested gam...

Re: AVGN: Ready 4 Revenge (Blu Ray)

I’ve grown bored with his Nerd reviews (though he did a really good job with Earthbound). I think that I prefer the Nerd videos where he digs into long forgotten pop culture history (Wish List 1 and 2 come to mind). However, I really enjoy his movie reviews, where he actually offers an interesting p...

Re: NES Classic Impressions

I was lucky enough to find one, in the Wild, today (Nintendo must have really stepped up their game, since everybody I know who wanted one, who missed out the last time, managed to snag one this weekend): My thoughts? It’s a cool little device, but it has sort of a “meh” factor, after the awesomenes...
