Re: 2019/7/12: Game Boy: Batman: The Animated Series, The Lost World: Jurassic Park

On a side note, I see that Shovel Knight was awarded the Fine Literature Award for its instruction manual. Just for kicks, I clicked on the icon to see what other games had been awarded the title. One I was surprised to see missing from the list is the game with my own personal favorite instruction ...

Re: 2019/7/12: Game Boy: Batman: The Animated Series, The Lost World: Jurassic Park

I rented The Lost World when I was younger. Yes, I was lucky enough to live by a Mom & Pop video store that rented Game Boy games, and I took full advantage! They also rented PC and Mac games, but that's a story for a different day. I remember beating it over a weekend and not thinking it was an...

Re: Dead or Alive 6 (PS4)

Like Virtua Fighter, this series may well fall off at the edge of a cliff. Ultimately if you make no money..... I wonder about this same issue myself. To my knowledge, many of the most recently released Japanese fighting games were not very profitable, if they were profitable at all - Soul Calibur ...

Re: 2019/7/14: Wii U: Rodea the Sky Soldier, Shovel Knight

The Wii version is a completely different game. I bought Rodea back when it was first released, mainly for the Wii version. Supposedly, the Wii version was finished years prior to the release of the Wii / Wii U combo pack, but the publisher feared the game would flop as it was releasing too late int...

Re: 2 games about Atari 2600 ports.

I loooooove Berzerk on the 2600. One of my top three favorite games on the system, and one of my all-time favorites, as well. Never even seen the arcade version in real life, but I've played the 2600 version to death, and still pop it in on a regular basis to see if I can top some of my decades-old ...

Re: Most polarizing video games and why?

Earthbound was pumped up in the day? Wow I somehow missed it. Was the PS1/Saturn out at the time? Yes, no, and yes. EarthBound came out the same Summer as the Saturn, and right about the same time, too. It was a few months before the PS1 launch and 16-bit games were definitely starting to be on the...

Re: Dead or Alive 6 (PS4)

It hard to say either way as it could be chicken or the egg. Indeed, sir. The only thing we know for sure is that the latest two games in the series have gone a more serious, realistic route than their predecessors. In my eyes, these changes are very welcomed, and as someone who's been a fan of the...

Re: Dead or Alive 6 (PS4)

I'm not sure the changes in appearance in the DOA series are entirely related to decisions made by Sony. If I recall correctly, the original director / creator of the DOA series was terminated by Tecmo, the game's developer, after allegations of workplace misconduct and sexual harassment. This took ...

Re: Most polarizing video games and why?

I was partial to Nightwolf, myself. Glad to see him coming back in MK11, even if he is DLC. Haven't picked the game up yet, but I figure I'll take the dive once the inevitable "Komplete Edition" is released. My wife's all-time favorite MK character is Sindel, and she loves MK3 because of i...

Re: Most polarizing video games and why?

This is why I liked mods. Eh, I wouldn't go that far. Litch's initial posts were relevant, and he did a good job of wrapping it up and getting things back on track. DOA Xtreme is (and was) a series that many people judge even though they have never played the games, themselves. There are assumption...
