Re: Arcades, Game Rooms, & the Like.

Over here every snack bar had at least one arcade machine - often they would have an entire room dedicated to arcade games. That's because snack bars originally came from "osterie" (or what you would call "bodegas" I guess), places that sold wine but almost always had an extra ro...

Re: Cooking?

I love cooking and I've been doing ever since I was little. My mother used to work all day and taught me and my brother how to cook for ourselves at an early age. I think the easist thing to learn for people who want to start or have just started cooking would be pasta. Pasta is very forgiving with ...

Re: Favorite Albums of the 90s

Hey now, they make perfect sense to me considering I listed Teenage Fanclub and Talulah Gosh as personal favorites, which I rarely ever see anyone outside of Britain (besides me) ever mention. Beloved overseas, but no one cares about them in America. Lot's of great '70s, '80s, and '90s indie/altern...

Re: Favorite Albums of the 90s

A big shout to the guy who mentioned Lemonheads - I had completely forgotten about that record!! A few more that haven't been mentioned so far, off the top of my head (there's loads more though): The first two Verve albums, can't remember the names Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs (often criticised b...

Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

I am sure the critic will not like this article, thoughts about this? It's a very fair article based on facts and aimed at a general audience that can only afford to buy one of the two consoles, preferably the one that guarantees the steadiest stream of relevant releases for the years to come and g...

Re: Musicians ?

I played bass and rhythm guitar in different bands since the late 90s. My latest band split a few years ago and I've been playing solo ever since, just me and the electric guitar. My bands kept splitting because we couldn't find a singer that wasn't a absolute idiot, so eventually I got tired of it,...

Re: Games that have.moved You?

Mh, when I was 14 the idea that videogames could be a legitimate art form was really exciting, but I eventually lost all interest for it. With age, I've come to realise that what I seek in videogames couldn't be further from "art", or at least from the idea of art that most people in the v...

Re: Nintendo Labo

It seems like a really cool idea. But I just gotta wonder why they decided to build it with cardboard instead of something a little more durable. I just don't think that it'll hold up well after heavy use. There's a number of reasons I guess. I believe one is safety - if they did these things in pl...

Re: Should Nintendo move to all digital downloads

I think it's tempting to consider going all-digital for a handheld console because, in theory, you want to carry the system around but don't want to carry multiple games. In practice though, it is useless. You can fit your whole Switch physical library in carrying cases the size of a cassette tape. ...

Re: My job sucks because...

I'm a freelance translator and work in a variety of fields, mostly music related but also videogames. The music audience has shrunk considerably in the last decade, while the gaming audience has quadrupled. My job sucks now because I have to compete with unprofessional and untrained translators who ...
