Re: Why the WII-U is now my 'go to' console.

I'm working a sales job from home and need video game consoles with headphone jacks. Which fortunately includes the Wii U.

Touchdown Fever tarnished my childhood!

Re: Why the WII-U is now my 'go to' console.

Yeah, I'm with you - I bought a Wii U about a year ago and I'm glad I did. I was itching for a Switch, just to play Breath of the Wild. Instead, I got a Wii U with Breath of the Wild, plus like 15-20 other games. I paid less for that than I would have paid for the Switch set-up. And it scratched my...

The Lost Levels were tough. Never have beaten them.

Re: Super Mario Odyssey

Never really got into this, but I recently picked it up and gave it another try. It's pretty cool, although is it weird that I prefer Mario 64 in all its scanlined glory? At least the controls aren't that much different in Odyssey. Actually I have been on quite the Mario kick lately since I work fro...

Re: Metal Gear Solid (Playstation 1)

Then again, it's possible that my brain is just clouded with nostalgia. And I didn't have the same problems with the controls and save method, since they were familiar to me. Stick with it if you have time - it's a great game with a good story and characters. I shouldn't have such an issue since I ...

Re: PS1 Suggestions

Just ordered Metal Gear Solid off of Ebay. Yes I used the link off this site. Probably order a few others as well. Herschie, did you get a chance to try it out? Or has it ended up in the backlog? Curious about your thoughts! Was in my backlog for a while, but I just posted about it in Now Playing.

Metal Gear Solid (Playstation 1)

Finally got around to playing this in all its 240p glory! Tell you what, it would be quite nice if the person who shipped this had a manual to go with the game. Unfortunately, I'm stuck looking up the controls on the internet. And it takes a while to get used to. Heck, I had a hard time figuring out...

Crash Team Racing (Playstation 1)

Boy oh boy, I'm on a roll with these Mariokart alternatives. And you know what? I think that this beats Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing. Both games are extremely fun, but I've always loved graphics from the PS1/N64. They have a certain charm to them with the pixelated graphics, and the shortcuts t...

Peculiar gaming habits

I just noticed this today, but why is it whenever I have all the time in the world to play, I'll get bored with my games? But when I have something to do or I have to get to bed or work, or the Bears are about to start, I'll have a blast playing and I won't want to stop. Anyone else ever get like th...
