Re: High Def Sega!

I recognize that this isn’t the right place to ask this, but how are people liking the RetroUSB AVS? I *love* Analogue’s stuff as they are committed to accuracy, but the NT was already out of my price range to begin with at $500. It’s aftermarket price is just ridiculous, so I’ve been interested in ...

Re: Hard Pass from me on PS1 Classic

I’ve thought of that, too, pt. That certainly could be an issue, especially with something like Crash, which is now owned by Activision. But it doesn’t explain why Sony owned games like Parappa and Legend of Dragoon aren’t here. Nintendo’s first party devs created most of the iconic games for the NE...

FPGA consoles are my NEW favorite way of playing older consoles

I’ve mentikned here before that I had to give myself a cutoff for collecting video games. I decided I would collect everything from the 5th generation (N64/SS/PS1) to current but would just emulate everything before that. I was nervous about the old hardware failing, batteries running out on carts a...

Re: Hard Pass from me on PS1 Classic

I haven’t commented on this yet, but like many others here I’m very disappointed in the list. The first five revealed games— Ridge Racer Type 4, FF7, Teken 3, Wild Arms and Jumping Flash— are all excellent. But there’s a reason the whole list wasn’t revealed day 1. Those first five are the best game...

Re: Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Viper, I believe your frustration stems from your complaint that Symphony is “much too open for a platformer.” That’s the thing; this game isn’t a platformer. Sure there’s some platforming *in* the game, but that’s not the same thing. In fact the “openness” and “[having] no idea where to go next” is...

Re: Question to Dave the Video Game Critic about the PS4?

These “the PS4 is overrated though I have zero experience with it” arguments are always good for a laugh.

Re: Shigeru Miyamoto Urges Developers To Embrace Subscription Services

Now even Nintendo is embracing this model??? Yikes. I’ve always said when the industry goes digital only, sub-only or streaming only I’ll be done with gaming. That *might* still be true, I’m not sure. I certainly won’t care about gaming as much, that’s certain. It’s a strange dichotomy where small i...

Re: VGC Tries Virtual Reality

About a year ago, I said— and still maintain— that Resident Evil 7 in PSVR is one of the most amazing gaming experiences I’ve ever had. I still look fondly back on that time I spent with it. Unfortunately, I haven’t found a potential second AAA game like RE7 to persuade me to buy the thing. There ar...

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

If Persona 5 isn’t considered a PS4 exclusive because a downgraded version released simultaneously on PS3, then you’re taking away most of the Switch’s games; the many Wii U ports. If you’re saying a PS4 or XBox One isn’t worth a purchase outside of the 1st party exclusives, what do you think the po...

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

I’m not a huge Rockstar fan, but I definitely think RDR is their finest game. Come to think of it, Red Dead Redemption is the only RS game I’ve finished. I’d probably give it a B or B+. I’m more or less on par with Critic and find it at least a little overrated. I also thought of it’s Top 10 ranking...
