Re: Records vs. CDs vs. digital music

I love CDs. They're a good compromise between the physicality of vinyl and the convenience of files (unlike with vinyl, you don't have to walk on eggshells when you play, handle, or look at a CD). Plus, if you just use iTunes or Spotify for your music, you're hearing only the newest remasters of eve...

Re: New Smashing Pumpkins Record: Shiny and Oh So Bright

I haven't heard this or the last one. Word of mouth and reviews haven't been too great. And the albums are so short! Half an hour is a joke for this band. I don't understand what happened to Billy Corgan after Oceania ; he seemed to really have it all together for that album, but everything since ha...

Re: 2018/12/2: Saturn: Game Tengoku: The Game Paradise (Japan)

I pulled this up on YouTube to see how the Breakout wall looked (turns out that it's definitely Arkanoid , not Breakout ; might want to fix that), and saw a pinball table in the first level. I'm surprised that you didn't mention it in the review, being such a big pinball fan. In any case, this game ...

Re: Christmas Review Special

I can't remember - did the game actually have Christmas decorations in them? It's been a while since I played them. If so, I think you guys may be right! Only the NES game, and only one decoration, but it's there. http://i.imgur.com/xmnTsSC.gif I wasn't being serious when I brought it up, but heck,...

Re: Super Castlevania IV Retrospective

I remember this school ground argument during the ST / Amiga wars. Amiga Owner: “ST sucks the Amiga has a blitter chip” ST Owner “What’s a blitter chip ? And what does it do ?” Amiga “Erm it blits the graphics” ST Owner “oh right - you don’t know do you ?” Amiga Owner “ST sucks” Actual conversation...

Mode 7 is a display mode of the SNES's graphics chip, so Bloodlines doesn't actually put it to much use.

(Also, palette. A pallet is what a forklift picks up.)

I'm going to be that guy who says that the Die Hard games are actually Christmas games.

Re: 2018/11/24: Atari 2600: Concentration, Robot Tank

big friendly, You reminded me of something I forgot to include in the review. When you get destroyed, the screen goes bonkers with all sorts of scan lines jumping around. I told my friend Brent that it was realistic, and he asked "how many times have you died in a tank?!" You aren't actua...
