Re: Vinyl or Digital?

It's more what bluenote said, that digital formats allow for truly awful mastering that vinyl physically cannot handle and that older vinyl records predate. Older CDs tend to sound much closer to the vinyl releases. The Kiss debut is an exceptional case – I genuinely cannot tell the '80s CD and the ...

Re: Graphics vs Gameplay?

I've always been (and still am) in the "gameplay is more important than graphics" camp, but recently I heard an argument that made me rethink that stance. Basically, it's that since these game companies are making new consoles every few years that they insist are better than the old ones,...

Re: Making the site easier to read?

Multiple people have mentioned the text as being a harsh white, but it's the same muted blue as on the forums.

Re: Making the site easier to read?

Agreed with everyone else. Putting anything behind text makes it harder to read, not easier. Nothing but black has any business being there, and if big blocks of text are a problem, the solution is to break them into smaller paragraphs or edit them down.

Re: 2020/5/14: Playstation 2: Ace Combat 04, Ace Combat 5, Ace Combat Zero

Typo in the Ace Combat Zero review: "Ace Combat experts will immerse themselves the realism Zero brings" And from the Sol-Deace review (I'm not going to post in two threads for this): "The audio sounds muffled quality" Am I the only one seeing these weird blue bars behind the rev...

Re: Street Fighter Movie

Nobody's saying that he's good because he's "really" Bison, just that it's entertaining to watch him ham it up. Honestly, half the fun of the movie is seeing just how little it cares about anything, and there's nothing it cares less about than the game. The casting is the most obvious area...

Re: Why no 2d Systems after 1990

The Saturn and PlayStation are excellent at 2D, later systems even more so. 2D games were out of fashion, but that has nothing to do with the systems' 2D capabilities. The games were still being made, too, some of them continuing to be major hits, like Symphony of the Night and the Oddworld games.

Re: Books. Books? Books!

The Tor edition appears to be the worst one available, even with another Victorian translation to choose from. Welp. A complete and unabridged edition of a text that itself is anything but. The 1871 English-language edition published by Griffith and Farran [...] is an abridged and altered translatio...

Re: Hottest Video Game Babes

It just occured to me now that you need more critic, that here's another that slipped my mind, Felicia from Darkstalkers. Meow! I think this is the first time I've seen someone single out a Darkstalkers character besides Morrigan as the sexy one. In fact, it might be the first time I've seen someon...
