Re: In Praise of Short Games

I like both. This is why today is such a great time for gaming! I love short, retro games but once in a while it's nice to settle in for a while with a Zelda game, usually 30-40 hours. Then, I'll play some games after that that have no time commitment, such as an NES game. Then, maybe after that go ...

Re: Disc less Xbox 1 (the critic is going to love this)

Everyone always mentions the psp go as the example of why diskless systems will fail, but the psp go was released 10 YEARS ago! The download scene was very different back then. Heck, smartphones were barely a thing yet. The iPhone was only introduced 2 years previously. The point is the psp go was ...

Re: What do you like/dislike about the site?

Critic, I think you've addressed my 2 major gripes with the site: the delay in posting messages and the acknowledgement of the online/modern gaming complaints. Being able to see your post right away will really increase the traffic here and encourage more discussions. And I'm glad you've acknowledge...

Re: Album Sales Dying Fast

It's not really like the radio at all. Radio, you are subject to only hearing the songs the station puts on. With commercials and talk inbetween. And, it's only the hits you hear from an artist, no deep cuts. Streaming, you can listen to any song or album that you can ever imagine. You can put toge...

Re: Album Sales Dying Fast

I find it a little hard to believe that streaming, which is comparable to the damn radio, is going to make up for all those album sales. I feel bad for musicians nowadays. The industry is going through a very awkward phase. It's not really like the radio at all. Radio, you are subject to only heari...

Re: Games to Play When You're Sick?

If I'm sick enough to stay home I never play video games. I just want to sleep and zone out on the couch with the TV on.

Re: Records vs. CDs vs. digital music

I'm a big music fan and self confessed "audiophile". I have a good sized cd collection and modest record collection. A few things I've noted: -I don't think most people can hear the benefits of vinyl unless they have a proper stereo (stereo receiver turntable and good speakers). - albums t...
