Re: Atari VCS in trouble!

Well, even though I feel this system isn't worth it, the purported delay is due to using a much stronger AMD GPU/CPU chipset, that will allow for 4k gaming. IF true, and it does actually happen, the $239 asking price for the base setup won't be bad at all. But, that is a big IF. I, for one, am not h...

Re: Google Stadia aka the most anti Video Game Critic console ever!

While it's a hard pass from me too, I don't see it being a total fail, at least not initially. A lot depends on how actually good it will run, when released, as well as the games available, and how it will effect mobile platforms (not to mention data caps). That said, Google will have a tough time i...

Re: Jumpstart Computer Games?

When I was a kid, we did The Oregon Trail, on a Commodore PET computer. This was back around 1980-1981 timeframe. I remember being quite enamored by it.

Re: The Autumn of 2003

Autumn of 2003... being that my daughter was born in September of 2003, pretty much all my time was being devoted to her, my wife, and work. Sleep and the above responsibilities is pretty all I did during that time (and sleep was hard to come by with a newborn).

Re: Telltale games shuts down

It appears Telltale Games has a class action lawsuit on them now, for the way they let their workers go, and not following the federally-mandated WARN Act, which requires employers to give 60 day notice on layoffs, or other preemptive mass terminations. If there lawsuit succeeds, Telltale will be re...

Re: Games being shut down

Try GOG. You download the game, no DRM, and can use to your hearts content. That being said, on console gaming, digital only is something I avoid, unless its like gentlegamer mentioned, pennies on the dollar (which sometimes Microsoft runs on their Xbox sales). Great minds think alike! ;) Indeed! :D

Re: Sony Playstation Classic, $99 US, 12/3

One trend I find alarming is how these "classic" consoles are becoming more and more expensive. I'm wondering how long it will be before we get a full-featured model packed with games for the same price as a modern console? I also really dislike how they are 1) almost certainly emulator, ...

I enjoyed the review as well, and look forward to your SNES Mini review. Interestingly, its pretty easy to find these second gen NES mini's in stores now. Last week when I was at Walmart, they must have had at least 10 of each NES & SNES systems in stock.
