Re: VGC Anti Atari??

Hmm...so just as an example, I took a peek at your Wii U reviews. About 75 percent of them are C- and above. So are you planing on going back and docking the grades of everything above it to establish an equilibrium of grades? That's not an ideal example since he hasn't reviewed the complete Wii U ...

Re: VGC Anti Atari??

I think part of the confusion stems from the fact that people aren't used to seeing F grades! They take offense! I've heard people characterize F games as: - Unplayable - No redeeming qualities - Broken - Not worth playing But that's not how I see it at all. F games are simply the counterpoint to A...

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

For the sake of people who are going to buy this console, I sincerely hope that they don't force HD upscaling. The PS1 games that are completely 3D should look fine with it, but the many games that combine 2D and 3D elements look really bad when they do this. There's no way around it since high-def...

Re: Heavy metal!

I’m not a metal fan at all, but where do you put Metallica’s early albums in your pantheon of metal albums? I used to be a bigger fan of them in high school and always liked Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets, but I never listened to too many other metal albums.

Re: A Hat In Time Coming To Switch

I just recently read some good things about this game, so I’ll probably end up getting it at some point, more than likely once it goes on sale. In my mind it ended up getting lumped in with Yooka Laylee and Super Lucky’s Tale as non-Nintendo platformers that were mediocre, but I guess I was wrong. A...

Re: Dragon Quest XI

I agree with all of your points. I'm not sure where you are at but I recently recruited the 4th party member, Sylvando. What an awesome character. I love how he adds humor and levity right when you need it, and how he combines strength of character with quirkiness and whimsy. The overworld music is...

What does a 23 year old Game Boy game have anything to do with this game?

Re: Dragon Quest XI

I’ve played quite a bit over the past couple days (I’d prefer not to say how much) and I have a couple more thoughts... Not to be completely cliche, but it’s Dragon Quest. The story is very simple so far, but it’s enough to keep me interested. The series has always been good at having a basic overar...

Re: Dragon Quest XI

I love this series. It feels so great to have a mainline Dragon Quest back on home consoles, at least in the US. Agree with you on the music - was there some type of licensing issue where they couldn’t use the orchestral tracks? I’m glad they didn’t voice the main protagonist. Like the Persona serie...
