Re: 2019/11/15: Sega Master System: California Games, Streets of Rage

Do any of the other versions of California Games have logos / ads like these in place? Yes, the NES version does. (And I assume the others as well.) There’s several other companies too, besides just the ones you see in that screenshot. Casio, Milton Bradley, and Kawasaki for example. In fact, at th...

Re: 2019/11/15: Sega Master System: California Games, Streets of Rage

Ahh, some much needed Master System reviews- nice. Ok, it’s official- now you have to review the NES version of California Games! That’s the version I grew up on- me and my brother had a blast playing it together all the time. For US gamers, it’s probably the most common version they’ve played, I’d ...

Re: Systems I've Neglected?

Well first off, I don't think there's any glaring weakness on the site - maybe the closest is the lack of Game Boy reviews, but you've been hearing that for years and you've done more lately. A few other portables have low review counts too, like the Neo Geo Pocket and Vita . A few consoles worth lo...

Re: All the way through?

Finally finished Horizon Zero Dawn. I played it like a completionist and went over 100 hours. It's been at least a decade since I played a game for that long, but the story and gameplay were so good that it kept me playing. I'll admit that I got tired of it toward the end (around 80 to 100 hours), b...

Re: Book Review: Video Games in The Netherlands

"100% gobbledeygook" lol. Great review.. somehow you still made it sound like a great book to buy, despite not understanding any of it. Are there any plans for an English translation? Loved seeing that Jazz Jackrabbit screenshot on there. Jazz came out in 1994, during the height of the &qu...

Re: Scaled down arcade cabinets

Nice score Matchstick, and thanks for the great write-up on the machine. At $150 for a solid game like MKII (which is always fun when friends or kids are over), you really can’t beat it. My concern with these machines is more at the MSRP of $300-$400, at which point I think you are too close to the ...

Re: Scaled down arcade cabinets

I'm with ya. The Star Wars cabinet looks super sweet. I'm hoping they'll offer a racing cabinet. I'm super stoked our basement is getting finished over the next several months. They start in December and should be done in February/March. Once it's done or close to it I'm going to order a cabinet. T...

Re: Scaled down arcade cabinets

A few different companies have tried mini arcade cabinets like these over the past 10 years or so, and Arcade1up is the closest any company has come to doing it right. But personally I'm still not sold. I haven't seen these in person, but I can't imagine that 3/4 replica of an arcade machine, made w...

Re: 100 Hour RPGs?

By the way Critic, you can blame the mainstream critics for this. They created the perception that 10-12 hour games are short, and docked review scores for it. The video game industry is so driven by review scores, that developers have to artificially lengthen their games with nonsense just to appea...

Re: 100 Hour RPGs?

Yeah, tell me about it. I feel the same way. RPGs were my favorite genre growing up, and I would easily log 100+ hours on a Final Fantasy game. I'd get Final Fantasy VIII for Christmas, and I had finally finished it just in time for next Christmas. It was great when I was young, with more free time ...
