Re: What’s the definitive Tetris game?

I'm partial to the original Game Boy's version Tetris . I should note tho that there were a bunch of freeware & shareware Tetris clones, some of which are quite good. The Internet Archive has a collection of shareware compilation CDs you can download. Here's on with nothing but Tetris-style game...

Re: Dragon Rage (PS2)

Yeah, the eating's a bit too bloody for "T" rated game. The controls aren't impossible, but it's too hard to make last minute adjustments. Often I find myself on top of something I'm supposed to grab, without a good way to hit it. Only option I can find: fly over it for awhile, then do a 1...

Dragon Rage (PS2)

Not now, but yesterday I played Dragon Rage on the PS2:

It's not great, but I had fun. Basic concept's there, but the story's a little over dramatic, & the controls are sometimes difficult. (Cael turns too wide.)

Re: EULAs ruining games

Haven't games always had some sort of EULA tho? I remember reading them in the back of Game Boy instruction manuals. They were reasonably short then; they forbid copying & they required you to only use the game on Nintendo-approved hardware, if memory serves. I will agree that they've gotten too...

Re: Album Sales Dying Fast

Goodbye, Ultraviolet! The movie streaming service is shutting down in July. Never tried it; thought it was a download service. Downloads sound more useful. https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/31/18204943/ultraviolet-locker-shutdown-date (Again, trying to reduce the number of online media problem threads.)

Re: The printed page

Bought a book of Bone comics for $2.

As it turns out I found the last book in the series. (Never read one before, but I'd heard that the series was good.) Now I know how everything ends, but I still want more.

Re: Album Sales Dying Fast

In the near future artists will have to release their album for free, by download for free in their own homepage, album sales will be a thing of past and artists will earn money more from live gigs. That reminds me of something. Before he became one half of Laurel & Hardy, Stan Laurel tried to ...

Re: Hollow Knight - Can we convince VGC to download a game?

It's the year 2019. However, considering the critic is a programmer by trade and runs a classic video game enthusiasts website, it kind of boggles the mind about his stance on being online. I wonder if he's aware of a few ways to make his online experience easier? There are networking adapters you ...
