Re: Playing as the bad guys?

I've been playing Tales of Berseria lately, and I was drawn in at first by the fact that you presumably play as the story's villain. That stops being the case later on, when it turns out the "good guys" are a load of douche bags and you're actually doing everyone a favor by killing them o...

Re: "The Tetris Effect"

I absolutely had dreams of playing Ultima III while I was playing... Ultima III. I got it for my 13th birthday, and since my birthday is in late May, I had ALL SUMMER to devote to this game, and boy did I. Anyway, I would play it for like 18 hours straight, go to bed, dream about playing it, then wa...

Re: 2018/7/23: Xbox 360: Red Dead Redemption

Scott, I think this line says it all. While I admired the craftsmanship of the game, I can't say I had a burning desire to play it every day. I was actually thinking the same thing after I re-read what I wrote; maybe the fact that I played it 'on and off' is telling in and of itself. But to be fair...

Re: 2018/7/23: Xbox 360: Red Dead Redemption

I have been playing this game on-and-off for over a year now, and have been meaning to pick it back up. I'm not a huge 'Western' guy, but I think this game captures the look and feel of all things Western better than other other video game I've ever seen, and better than most movies. I personally wo...

Re: Computer Games 1998-2000

What was your first PC build? Mine was a Pentium 2 with Voodoo 2 GPU. Back then installed 128MB of RAM, how times have changed. I loved that PC and wish I kept it. Fallout, Icewild Dale, Baldur's Gate, Unreal, Quake, Shadowman, and so on, what a time to be a PC gamer. My father still has his PC fro...

Re: Computer Games 1998-2000

In trying to track down the exact first PC I owned, I stumbled across this bit of archived history: https://archive.org/details/1988-Winter-DAK-Catalog Anyone else remember getting these catalogs and drooling about their 'high tech' wizardry within? I purchased more than one item through these guys,...

Re: Computer Games 1998-2000

I decided to be careful and insert the word "typical" - as in a gaming PC someone may find and purchase from an electronics store. In other words, a PC one could run into in the wild. I am not talking about a niche high end gaming PC built by the enthusiast builder with a bulging wallet. ...

I'm going to have to vehemently disagree with this statement, unless it's a typo and you meant literally the exact opposite :P

Re: 2018/6/19: Playstation: The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park Special Edition

C64, I am sure it is time for you to produce some more reviews. I wish I could argue with you! Unfortunately, due to a series of events that are everyone's fault but my own , I am currently without a working C64. In addition, all my 'spare' units (along with 2 C128's) are in storage thousands of mi...

Incomplete sentence: "eating a guy every now." Or something like that. I can't cut and paste, and my memory is in and out, but you'll see it if you re-read.
