Re: Dreamcast Light Gun Issues

I can tell you that the official JP Dreamcast lightguns by Sega are excellent. In terms of accuracy and feel, they have to be up there with the Saturn stunner and the Namco GunCon 1 and 2. It may seem like this isn’t helpful information, but it’s not too steep an investment to get a gun or two and a...

Re: 2019/11/19: Nintendo Switch: Blade Strangers, Ninja Saviors: The Return of the Warriors

Just FYI, the SNES game was released as “Ninja Warriors Again” in other regions and was a sequel to the Ninja Warriors arcade game, but was never an arcade game itself. It was a console exclusive for the Super Famicom/Snes. So, Ninja Saviors (Switch/PS4) is a remake of the Super Nintendo game, but n...

Re: Dragon's Crown (Vita)

The Amazon was my choice, too. With certain upgrades, I was spinning across the play area, damaging every enemy by the end of the game. She was a joy to play as. I really like the Elf as well, because she uses a ranged attack with bow and arrow and also uses a bit of magic. Something cool about the ...

Re: Scaled down arcade cabinets

I kind of scoffed at the idea of getting a stand-alone 3/4 arcade machine at first, but I have to say I’m pretty impressed with most of Arcade1up’s efforts. I’d really like to get the TMNT and Marvel machines... but they’re both pretty crazy expensive.

Re: N64 Games That Stand The Test Of Time

You guys said most that I would say. With one exception: I didn’t see anyone recommend F Zero X . (Apologies if someone did!) Nintendo actually made a smart technical decision on a first party N64 game and went with frame rate over graphics and it’s SO much better for it. It may not be the most visu...

Re: What was your best goodwill video game find?

I found a complete Wii console (all hook ups, sensor, power supply, etc) for $10. They sold the Wiimote and nunchuck separately for $5, so $15 for all. I took it home hooked it up and found it hadn’t been used since 2008. Not only was it in mint condition cosmetically, but it had also barely been us...

Well, I’ll be...

Being wrong never felt so good. :lol:

That’s great about Deadly Premonition and Tokyo Mirage. Not sure why they weren’t on Amazon, but I don’t really care as long as I can get them physically.

The latest Nintendo Direct shows great upcoming games, but exposes a PROBLEM for game collectors...

Tons of games are coming to Switch. https://www.ign.com/articles/2019/09/04/everything-announced-at-the-september-4-nintendo-direct Some surprises include the following: SNES...

Re: what are your favorite remakes or sequels?

I like remakes that modernize the game’s visuals and mechanics but still stay true to the original. Ratchet and Clank (PS4) and Resident Evil 2 (PS4, XB1, PC) are two that come to mind. But I can also appreciate remakes that take the time to fix problems with the original. Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA...

Re: What age should I introduce my daughter to video games?

I’m perhaps a little qualified to answer this, as I have a boy and a girl ages 10 and 9, respectively. I don’t see this as really any different than any other medium, to be honest. When I was a young parent, people were still really into Baby Einstein videos. Yet all the research I’ve looked at does...
