Re: PS3 Eulogy

So what actually killed it?

I’ve resuscitated mine once and am about to do it again.

Re: What's your favorite game in your least favorite genre?

For normal genres(I don’t think I’ve ever completed a rhythm game) it’s JRPGs. I don’t like them. Or ROGs in general. However, I love Panzer Dragoon Saga. It was an amazing experience in 1998. Free of pointless grinding, an actually interesting story and an elegant, fun combat system. I’ll give Phan...

Re: Favorite Resident Evil Games?

Most fun? Resident Evil 3(original). It struck just the right balance of difficulty and scope.

Of course I have love for the good ol’ original most of all. Perfect settings, I like the “horrible” controls. Most of all hilarious, and memorable dialogue.

Re: Console Design Blunders

I take issue with the Dreamcast DVD drive. Cramming a DVD drive in a game console that launched in 1998 is not feasible. The PS2 didn’t launch until March 2000. That’s a big difference and Sony could afford to lose $200 a console. A stand-alone DVD player in 1998 cost hundreds. There’s a reason lite...

Re: Would you buy a $500 Console?

Accounting for inflation it’s hardly an extreme price. The PS3 really launched too too too high but that was $600 2006 dollars. A $200 NES in 1985 would translate to $477 today. The $300 PS1? Just over $500. $499 is about the expected spot. If the push for $599 they may be in some trouble. Of course...

Re: No one to play games with

Aside from my younger brother on rare occasions, I would have no one to play multiplayer games with. I’ve played online over the years but between poor internet and poor manners it’s never much fun. I’d love to play some 4 player PowerStone or even Perfect Dark or TimeSplitters but finding 3 other p...

Re: Reconsidering Neo Geo CD reviews

Just want to totally agree with everything above.

I might actually think separating NG CD reviews from AES reviews entirely as they are distinct systems is a good idea.

Re: Neo Geo CD Speed up?

If you go the SD route, I would think a flash cart for the AES Neo Geo would be the way to go.

Unfortunately I don’t really know much about the power adapters but as long as it’s delivering the proper voltage/amperage how wrong could it go?

Re: Anybody excited for VR?

I genuinely enjoy VR. More videos or experience kind of things than video games but it can be quite amazing. The problem is at this time there is too little standardization, too little software. The headset needs to be standalone or universally compatible with various devices. Make it like a TV. Plu...
