Re: NFL Football games are still going to suck

I think fake players came up in another topic before. There's a couple problems, the first being that modern gamers arguably want and expect complete authenticity - so fake teams and players won't cut it and trying to create a new game from scratch, populated with fake teams and players is almost a ...

Re: The Last Dance (ESPN)

I think there would have been another championship, but maybe in 2000 instead of 99, if the team held together for that long. I was mostly surprised by how much of Michael's success was based off his desire to have something to motivate him to win or be the best - whatever it was. That whole thing a...

Re: Vinyl or Digital?

I haven't had chance to experience for myself, but whenever I've spoken to anyone who seriously knows their stuff when it comes to music, they're unanimous when it comes to vinyl being superior. They've all always said pretty much exactly the same as STrife - that you lose some of the audio quality ...

Re: The Last Dance (ESPN)

Finally got round to watching this and loved it - dug the soundtrack too. I actually had no idea there was so much going on behind the scenes around the 98 season. Explains MJ's run with the Wizards a bit more considering he never really wanted to retire that 2nd time. I love how it just ended by sa...

Re: Anyone receiving the TurboGrafx-16 Mini next week?

Both my PlayStation Classic and Mega Drive Mini came with USB cables but no wall-plug/ac adapter. I've been using one of those flat-style iPhone USB charger plugs for both and it works fine - any that come standard with a phone seem to work. So long as you have one laying around somewhere and the Tu...

Re: The Pagemaster (Genesis)

Haven't heard of the game... is it a movie tie-in? Wasn't there a Macaulay Culkin film like this?

Re: Light Crusader

I haven't played it, but its definitely on my hitlist. Very interested to see what Treasure did with a game like this compared to their other efforts.

It made the cut of 42 games that were included on the Mega Drive/Genesis mini, if that's any sign of it's worth.

Re: EA Embarrassed during ESPN Madden game

I was expecting a glitch where the QB just wasn't there, but this is much more hilarious/tragic. What's worse is that EA will still hold exclusive rights to create 'simulation' NFL games, when clearly they haven't been doing that for a very long time and continue to release games that are either bro...

Re: Making the site easier to read?

I've also just noticed that the green line spacing don't match up with the text on the mobile site. They're off by a few pixels, but the position is different for every line. So the first line is a pixel or two below where it is on the desktop site, the 2nd line is striking through the top of the te...

Re: Making the site easier to read?

The green lines are another improvement over the original change... but I think it's just because you're getting closer and closer to the original look with a plain background. :D The lines still disrupt the flow of the reviews for me. It's like its placing emphasis on something or dividing the revi...
