Re: Kingdom Hearts Series

As a Final Fantasy fan, I continue to be interested in trying this series. Similar to David, I've bought copies on PS2, PS3, and PS4, all well intentioned, but then never played any of them. I plan to skip KH1 and go right to KH2. People give me a hard time about this and say I won't understand or e...

Re: All the way through?

MGS: Portable Ops (Vita) I’ve been talking about this on and off for a few weeks in another thread and finally beat the game today. Surprisingly I sunk nearly 24 hours into this (I was doing all the side missions along the way). Overall I enjoyed it like I tend to with Metal Gear games but as I’ve ...

Re: This months's free PS+ games

Nice. I've considered buying Dead by Daylight before, so I'll definitely use this chance to pick it up. It's very similar to the new Friday the 13th game (i.e., it's an online multiplayer game with 1 overpowered killer [human controlled] vs. a team of weaker human controlled players), except that De...

Re: The Mummy Demastered

Never heard of this one before, but it looks interesting in screenshots. Normally I'd say that downloadable games are not likely to get a physical release.. but this one was developed by WayForward (the studio behind the Shantae series), and they have a habit of releasing games on disc. So there's a...

Re: Microvision System Review

This is very cool!!! Thank you Retro Strife & VGC! I never had one of these but do remember the commercial for it making me want one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRqYa6yL8Jk The Friday the 13th Pt. 2 photo was a nice touch too. I didn't realize that they were playing Microvision (I would ha...

Re: Wii: Goldeneye, Mario Kart Wii

I've had the Xbox 360 version of Goldeneye on my "to-buy" list for years and finally bought it last week. My understanding is that it's nearly identical to the Wii version, but just upgraded a bit. I have to say, I'm pretty disappointed. When they called this a remake, I figured the game w...

Re: Microvision System Review

According to a reply on my Facebook page: I believe this was the first system to have a licensed Star Trek game. That's an interesting tidbit of info! Might need to incorporate that into the review. Interesting. And I'm impressed by Scotland's knowledge on this. I, on the other hand, haven't the fa...

Re: Microvision System Review

Thanks for posting this, VGC. And for contributing a lot to the content and formatting - it looks good. Back when I bought my Microvision, I could not find any game reviews around the internet. I was pretty surprised, considering its historical place as the first handheld video game system. Since I ...

Re: Uncharted 4... isn't a game

Uncharted 4 was the first game I played in the series, and loved it. I thought it had a great story and enjoyed the cutscenes (even if a few do run too long). Then again, Metal Gear Solid is my favorite series so you know I can live with lengthy cutscenes. I recently tried Uncharted 2 - which has le...

Re: New Arcade Systems for $300

Some companies made machines like this about 10 years ago. They sold for like $400, small size like these, but with like 10-15 games each. Here's an example of a Konami one: http://www.aceamusements.us/konami-12-in-1-arcade-classics-video-multicade.html It sounded cool then too, but once I saw them ...
