Re: 2018/10/15: Playstation 4: Little Nightmares

Interesting review. I’ll trust your call on this one.. almost got it a few months back, but glad I passed. I download and play a fair amount of indie games, especially ones with unique premises or very good reviews. Little Nightmares fit the bill, but it’s puzzle-platformer design reminded me too mu...

Re: 2018/10/11: Genesis: Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi, Incredible Crash Test Dummies, The

Nice reviews. Never played either. I'm surprised that "Shinobi" is buried in such small print on the Shadow Dancer box... I'd figure it would be more prominent in the game's title for name recognition purposes to help with sales and marketing (especially back then, when a lot of game purch...

Re: This months's free PS+ games

Hey where's DaHeck with our monthly update?? j/k... But it looks like Friday the 13th is one of the free PS4 games for this month. I was pretty pumped about that, because I've been interesting in that game since first hearing about it a couple years ago. It got mediocre reviews, partly due to severa...

Re: Little Nightmares (PS4)

This one got some good reviews and sounded interesting, but it looks like a puzzle platformer to me (like Limbo and Inside), and I'm not usually a fan of those so I passed on it. I look forward to your review though. As for a short indie game that is well worth playing, I highly recommend Journey to...

Re: Super Nintendo Classic Edition Review

Great review. I think it's a great system. Especially good for casual retro gamers that want to experience an SNES, without the usual price of entry (at least a few hundred for a system and starter collection of good games). While 21 games feels a little light compared to the 30 on the NES Classic, ...

Re: 2018/10/7: Atari 2600: Sneak n' Peek, Spider-Man

Oh, man, the opening line of the Sneak n' Peek review is such a missed opportunity, because it sure looks like those characters are brandishing something very adult -- and, if the scale is correct, quite impressive! (Yes, I know it's his arm , but I've shown this game to people and had them immedia...

Re: 2018/10/7: Atari 2600: Sneak n' Peek, Spider-Man

Yes, the Sneak n Peek review is here!! Been looking forward to this one. My wife got this game for me as a joke last Christmas, and for sure the concept, title, and box art are all worth a good laugh. Unfortunately, the game itself is a complete exercise in frustrating, is definitely worth an F-, an...

Elite Beat Agents (DS, 2006)

I'm over 10 years late to the party, but I just wanna say that this game rocks. Elite Beat Agents is one of the best-reviewed Nintendo DS games (88% metascore), yet it didn't do so well with sales. I bought it several years back, but never got around to playing it. Then I had a vacation this past we...

Re: Fatal Frame (PS2)

I bought one or two of the Fatal Frame games a few years back after being intrigued by the VGC's review. Probably spent too much on them (I think FF2 was like $30 when I bought it), and then haven't ever come close to playing it. Just haven't had time. But sounds like I'm not missing too much for no...
