Re: Easy SRPGs?

It’s not traditional, but Valkyria Chronicles on PS3 or the remastered version on PS4 is an incredible game. I have a hard time gettinto into SRPGs, but I fell in live with that one. After you select your units, you enter third person mode and move your character around instead of everything taking ...

Re: Dragon Quest XI

Quick update - I’m about 45 hours in now. I’ve really been taking my time since I’d like to get the platinum trophy for the game, so I might be halfway through maybe? There was a plot twist and now I have a new character to play with, so that was pretty cool. I really love the characters in the game...

Re: Switch storage is a total mess

I hear ya, but what other form of media could they use for the Swith’s form factor? Their options were limited to download only, which would’ve required them to put in way more flash memory, or maybe mini discs? I’m not even sure they would’ve had enough room in there for anything other than a cartr...

Re: The Autumn of 2003

The fall of 2003 I was 18 starting my freshman year at the U of MN. There was a period of about three years where I wasn’t gaming too much that started during college, except for multiplayer games we played in the dorms. I remember playing some Halo 2, WWE Raw vs Smackdown I think, and Madden. Coinc...

Re: Are E-sports Legit?

E-sports is played on ephemeral software and hardware, and it seems as much marketing as anything (such as the infamous Atari Swordquest Contest - and 'Contest' seems an apt word). Even if the transient and marketing nature is removed, such as competing for King of Donkey Kong, its a contest to be ...

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.
