Re: A biased articles on why people should get a PS4 and Pro over the Nintendo Switch!

Wow. There are still console wars. Colour me surprised. I assumed those ended when one of the manufacturers only started making handhelds, one of the others essentially declared it was leaving the field to make a computer streaming service, and only one company was actively still trying to make cons...

Re: Maybe it’s time to move on from E3?

I set aside time last night to drink whiskey and catch up on the press conferences, despite not at all being excited about E3. I got through about 5 minutes of the EA one before getting sick to my stomach over the cringe. Then I tried to get into the Microsoft one (and I usually like most of their s...

Re: Solo (Spoiler Alert)

Based on the numbers, I strongly suspect I'm not the only one for whom "Star Wars Fatigue" was indeed a thing this time around. Now that is misleading. Based on the numbers, the movies are doing poorly. Positing a theory on your own feelings, then extrapolating that to everyone just becau...

Re: Solo (Spoiler Alert)

I can only go by my own experience, and absolutely positively both Star Wars fatigue and Marvel fatigue are a thing. Solo may be the best SW movie ever made, but I won't know until I finally get around to watching it whenever it become available for free on Netflix or Amazon Prime. I am almost comp...

Re: Solo (Spoiler Alert)

What I'm afraid is that due to poor box office Solo will be regarded as a failure. I don't think it deserves that. If anything, the mediocre Last Jedi (which gets worse with repeat viewings) probably tarnished people's enthusiasm for the series. Also, why did they rush it out just 5 months after th...

Re: Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel's Castle (Atari 2600)

this was fun for about seven minutes. <insert that's what she said joke> Anyway, I'm interested in why you would only think this was fun for about 7 minutes. I think that one is fun for a very long time. The difficulty, IIRC, ramps nicely and there are some changes the first bunch of times through....

Re: River Raid (Atari 2600)

Only thing is, I used the Genesis controller, which of course wouldn't have been an option way back when. Hersch the Cheat! I wouldn't beat myself up over that. I have 3 different versions of joysticks for the 2600 here from that time, as well as paddle controllers, the Star Raiders Pad, and a trac...

Re: River Raid (Atari 2600)

Still got a ways to go before I set any records though. https://scontent-ort2-1.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/34674510_10157664422443228_7305959345835999232_n.jpg?_nc_cat=0&oh=b50d3713b410427cd9ba405c564968d9&oe=5B7C03B1 Now you earned it. Apparently, the requirement was 15,000 points back in the d...

Re: Should Loot Boxes Be Regulated?

I think regulating these is silly. What's next? Regulating novelty capsule machines and Kinder Surprise eggs? This is the wedge issue that ends with censorship of content and themes. What Jack Thompson couldn't achieve against the industry, gamers will welcome into the industry of their own accord a...

Re: Anybody know if the servers for MW3 on the PS3 are still active?

I can't vouch for PS3, but it still works for all 3 Wii versions, including MW3. I played Modern Warfare 1 online on Wii last night. A few months ago I was playing Black Ops 3 online on PS3. Given that the PS3 versions are more popular than the Wii ones, it would shock me if those weren't also all s...
