Re: Madden 19 (Playstation 4)

I call the same pass play 99 percent of the time in the NFL Blitz games: "da bomb." I usually stick to NFL Blitz, Blitz 2000, or Blitz 2001 on the PS1 when I'm in the mood to play a Blitz game. The Blitz games from the PS2 era just seem to easy. The field just feels "bigger" and ...

Re: Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection (Xbox 36)

So many good games. I remember my cousin beat a few challenges for me to help get the platinum. Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine was the hardest to get. I do look at Sonic 1 as an all time classic, though there are parts of the game I don't like. The last act of Marble zone can be a drag, though the...

Re: The Autumn of 2003

Let's keep this going. Somebody should do a similar topic from a time from, say no earlier than 1988, and no later than 2013. What games were you playing? What was going on in your life? Video games are virtual time machines. Indeed they are. I had to go look back and see what games came out around...

Re: Friday the 13th (NES) Retrospective

I listened to it last night. It was very good. I used the link to download a separate app, but I also searched for it on the podcasts app that came preinstalled on my ipod touch. It was on there; it's nice to have all my podcasts in one place, I also saw you guys did an episode in late September abo...

Re: Sony Playstation Classic, $99 US, 12/3

Thank you. I figured this would get a lot of discussion.

One other thing worth noting is that since these controllers are the original ones without the analog stick, would that affect the game selection at all? I wonder if later games that used the analog sticks will not be included.

PS1 Classic

As most have speculated, a PS1 classic was announced! It will be released later this year for $99.99. It will come with two controllers, which are the first edition ones without the analog control sticks. 5 of the 20 games have been revealed: Final Fantasy 7, Wild Arms, Ridge Racer type 4, Tekken 3,...

Re: Mortal Kombat Monday 1993

This is a great series, and my favorite in the fighting genre. I played the original a lot, and was pretty good, but I was never really great at the other 2d games. I do enjoy the 3d games a lot, and deadly alliance was one of my favorites.

Re: 2018/9/11: Nintendo Switch: Sonic Mania Plus

I'm not sure it was deliberate, but I like how you listed "fun" as one of the notable features of the Wild West stage. As we all know, "fun" is not always a prerequisite in modern Sonic games, so it's a notable feature. I got a kick out of that as well, like saying that fun is t...

Re: Madden 19 (Playstation 4)

My fins crushed it last night in preseason, 34-7 against the Falcons. They can win the games that don't matter, plus it was the final preseason game, which is the least meaningful. They did make a bit of a change to the uniforms, with no more blue stripes and bolder orange, so it looks more like the...

Re: Ebay item packaging

I once ordered a disc only copy of Mario Party 6 and it came in a small square box surrounded by packing peanuts. No protective sleeve or anything. The game worked fine, so that's fine with me.
