Re: Records vs. CDs vs. digital music

I'm from the era of Vinyl (born in '73) and I honestly think anyone who says vinyl sounds better is just a hipster, or maybe hatched to the sound of their childhood.

Re: Xbox HL2

I wasn't aware of any level changes to Half-Life 2 on the original Xbox. Must be pretty subtle since it's the first I've heard of it. I'll have to keep my eyes open since I want to give it a spin soon after only playing the 360 and PC versions for the better part of 15 years now, since first playin...

Re: Xbox HL2

It IS a good conversion. While there are some minor hiccups in frame rate (nothing too horrendous) and some level design changes (some more noticeable than others) it's by-and-large the exact same game. So, still a fantastic romp, and a hell of a time. And best of all, the Xbox version is cheap!

Re: Which games have the best screenshots?

Need for Speed on the 3DO had magazine screenshots which blew me away back in the day.

Re: Favorite Rock Stars (Pre Grunge)

Was never a big Kix fan, although I really liked that song Cold Shower. Yeah, they were huge around here. When I was a teen I used to hang out at this guy-from-work's apartment (and drink of course) and he had people coming and going all the time. One night a bunch of guys come in and he's like &qu...

Re: I'm SCARTing!

I ended up snagging a 32" Sony monitor recently at a thrift shop. Colors look beautiful!

Re: Favorite Rock Stars (Pre Grunge)

Steve Whiteman of Kix is probably the greatest rock frontman of all time.

Did the critic ever get a chance to see them back in the day? He is a Maryland dude after all.

Re: Hard Pass from me on PS1 Classic

Rainbow Six on PS1 has a soft spot from me because I never played the PC version before, but it's NOT a good game! ROGUE SPEAR on the other hand, the sequel, would've fit very well! The list is seriously disappointing. No Parappa? THAT'S A SONY GAME! It would've been so easy to include. They just go...

Re: Greatest arcade in known universe near Pittsburgh, PA

Was just there today. Seems some of the stuff has been let go. A lot of the pinball games have problems. That said, the staff is VERY attentive to problems when you inform them there is an issue. Then again, I was the ONLY person there aside from a father and his son. 10 dollar admission on the week...
