Re: 20th Anniversary Message

ZetaX dug up an old version of the site dating back to 2001! Wow. No screenshots but the reviews are pretty great. https://web.archive.org/web/20010331081956/http://www.thevideogamecritic.com/ That is wicked cool. I forgot you used to have the consoles listed on the side, I liked that layout. Congr...

Ratchet and Clank PS4

I picked this up for $9.99 off Amazon during the recent PS4 sale and man am I getting my money's worth. I love this game! It is a "reimagining" of the original Ratchet and Clank. I have played all of the R&C games but honestly, do not remember much from the PS2 original. That being sai...

Re: I hate listening to the news. Anyone else?

I'm a news junkie, have been since the Bush administration and the Iraq War fiasco. I worked in physical therapy on war vets, my cousin took a mortar in Iraq, I've volunteered on campaigns, etc. I only read enough to stay informed now. I don't watch news like I used to, I can't take it. It switches...

Re: I hate listening to the news. Anyone else?

Every now and then I take a day or two break from the national news, and notice I typically feel better and don't really miss anything that would affect me anyway. Part of the problem is they no longer report straight news. It's all political commentary disguised as news. Absolutely 100% news. It u...

Re: 2019/4/20: Nintendo Switch: Hollow Knight

I was loving me some Hollow Knight until I got to the point where you are fighting two bosses at the same time! Impossible! I like this game but after about 13 hours in I don't think it worth of the A+ title. Too much backtracking and the 'fast" travel system is not helpful at all! A-/B+

Re: Avengers Endgame Movie

I liked the movie but I have really low expectations. I enjoyed them exploring the "human" element of these superheroes but the movie was just too long! I thought the scene with Hawkeye in Japan was completely pointless (that's 10 minutes right there!). Overall I found a lot to like in all...

Re: 2019/4/20: Nintendo Switch: Hollow Knight

I would also pick Axiom. I like Hollow Knight (currently playing it) but I HATE the go get your soul thing when you die! Also, in HK you are woefully outgunned all the time. Meaning that your little sword isn't much help on some of the more difficult enemies. Don't get me wrong, I like HK, not sure ...

Re: Favorite '80s Albums

The 80's! Now we are talking. Probably the greatest decade of all time! Of course I grew up in that decade so I am sure nostalgia has something to do about that opinion. Anyway....80's albums...here you go: Big Country: The Crossing (Greatest Album Ever!) Big Country: Steeltown Big Country: The Seer...

Re: 2019/4/20: Nintendo Switch: Hollow Knight

Great review. I downloaded this game last night and at $15 it's a steal. I am enjoying it but the map doesn't make a lot of sense to me. How do I know where the heck I am at on the map? Am I missing something. There doesn't seem to be anything on the map that marks my current location. Anyway, thank...

Re: What do you like/dislike about the site?

Been coming here for years and I enjoy the site. I even visit it when I am not "into" video games as I enjoy reading the reviews. VGC don't ever get "woke", be who you are and write what you want. If people don't like it they can go somewhere else. People have already mentioned y...
