Re: Will you miss Game Stop

Not at all. The market has spoken! Honestly, if I am going to pay for a game at full price I will get it off Amazon. I will miss the ability to trade in old/completed games but the return on those is so small anyway my wallet will hardly feel it.

Re: The lame excuse as why EA is not bringing many of its games on Switch!

Dude, it's a company. Of course, they don't care about you, neither does Apple, Google, or Amazon. They are in it to make a profit and find the largest return on investment. If they thought they could make more money on the Switch with the same level of investment they would do so. It's a business....

Re: No boat racing games?

VGC give Riptide Renegade a try on the Switch. It is download only but worth a shot. Not a great game but I had some fun with it. I played the spilt screen set up with my daughter and that was enjoyable as well.

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 ...
