Re: Best Sports Video Games of All Time!

I remember reading a retrospective a while ago about NFL 2K5. The gist of the article was that, despite its age, we'll always love it not necessarily for the quality of the game itself, but because of what it represents - a time before the Madden-opoly. Sentimentality can distort our memory. That sa...

Mortal Kombat 11

I've been a huge MK fan since I was a kid, and really sunk my teeth into MK9 and MKX. Bought MK11 as a birthday present to myself the other day, and I feel a little underwhelmed. Would love to get others' thoughts on their experience with the game so far. Not to pick nits, but: 1) The story seems li...

Re: Avengers Endgame Movie

Fiancee and I don't often go to the movies, but I insisted upon seeing Endgame on the big screen. After the movie, I quipped to her, "I can't imagine a better superhero movie." Even after a few days, I have the same thought. Not going to win any awards as a film in and of itself, but you c...

Buying Pong in 2019

Hi all! My dad's birthday is coming up, and I've been thinking about buying him Pong in some iteration - he and my mom used to play it when they were dating, and he was reminiscing about the game recently. My question is, does anyone have any recommendations on how to acquire said game? I'm seeing a...

Re: 2019/1/3: Nintendo Switch: Slain: Back From Hell

Currently 2.99 on the Playstation store, but there's a bit of a discrepancy between the Critic and reader scores. Would love to hear some other folks' thoughts.

Re: 2010/11/23: Nintendo DS: Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia

Gonna dig up this old thread to talk about Castlevania. Brought Portrait of Ruin with me to entertain me on a flight this past weekend, and I ended up getting bored. Hadn't played it in years, and I was surprised at how underwhelmed I was this time around. The game just feels half-baked - the music ...

Re: Most Disappointing Games?

Bioshock Infinite. Loved the first two Bioshocks but Infinite was such a big letdown for me. I read this a lot, I actually enjoyed it though. I enjoyed it too! I enjoyed it as much as BioShock 2. However, the first BioShock is still one of the best games ever for me - not even the sequels can match...
