Re: Will you miss Game Stop

I thought I'd miss Game Informer, but to tell you the truth, I usually just take a quick glance at it and then never read them again.

Re: PS1 Suggestions

Thanks for the suggestions. Metal Gear Solid arrived today. Since I'm working again and don't have as much time to play, I'm going to buy others once I complete this and work my way down the list. There's something charming about N64/PS1 graphics. For some reason there were a bunch of Burger King co...

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation (PS1)

Could this be the PS1 adventure game that I've been craving? No, it's not. The controls themselves are wonky, and the control scheme is way too complicated. Maybe I was really spoiled by Zelda, but I finally gave up after trying for the 24th time to swing across a pit in the tutorial stage. It's too...

Re: PS1 Suggestions

Not many good pure adventure games come to mind on PS1, but a few games in similar genres that might scratch the itch are Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, or Final Fantasy VII. They’re each all time classics and still hold up today. Silent Hill, Parasite Eve, or a Resident Evil...

Re: Looking for a middle person based in the U.S

Thanks to Herschie being willing to act as a middle person for it, I will soon have a manual and thus complete copy of Shanghai Triple threat for 3DO. Thank you Herschie. No problem! Yeah I appreciate your understanding that I'm taking my own time to do this, so you never pressed me on anything. Be...

PS1 Suggestions

I want to play a good adventure game, and for some reason I want to play one with early 3D graphics. Since I have PS2, and thus PS1, what are some good adventure games for PS1 that you guys found fun?

I feel the same way. Just lugged a 27-inch CRT and a recliner up the stairs. How bad do you think I want to be swinging my arms right now?

Re: Touch screens going away?

Both the DS Zeldas and Metroid Prime: Hunters could have been far better had they not used the touchpad for control. Even on the Wii U, I never liked using it much.

Mario Kart DS (Nintendo DS)

Quite the forgotten gem this one seems to be! But it's been so nice out in Chicago that I really wanted to play a handheld in my backyard. Admittedly it's been a while since I've played this. The racing is fun, and I love the battle mode. About ten years ago I would play this all the time, and now I...

Re: Will you miss Game Stop

The lack of a need for Gamestop came rather suddenly for me. Just a couple years ago I was going all the time, now I don't think I've bought from them ever since the Switch came out. And really, I don't hate Gamestop, I just rarely have the need to go in there anymore.
