2013/4/25: Saturn: Earthworm Jim 2, TNN Motorsports Hardcore 4x4, X-Men: Children of the Atom

OK, that makes more sense, then.  Although, as someone who's primary experience with Earthworm Jim 2 is the Super NES version, I do want to state that the spotlight around Jim in the Lorenzo's Soil stage is only present in 2 locations, unlike the Saturn version, where it's there all the time. &...

2013/4/25: Saturn: Earthworm Jim 2, TNN Motorsports Hardcore 4x4, X-Men: Children of the Atom

I'm a little confused why the Saturn Earthworm Jim 2 is worse than the Genesis one. I mean, they're both the same, except for the improved presentation on Saturn, yet, with the exception of the Lorenzo's Soil stage, you added criticisms to the Saturn review that can clearly be levied onto the Genesi...

2013/4/15: Super Nintendo: Chester Cheetah: Too Cool to Fool, Mega Man 7, NBA Hang Time

<p>I third the worthiness of NBA Hangtime on N64.  I remember waiting through the small delay between its release and the 16-bit games, and now that I look at the 16-bit ones, I'm glad I held off, because the N64 one blows them out of the water.</p><p>Nice to see Mega Man 7, too.  I think ...

False Video Game TV Ads?

<p>On Aliens: Colonial Marines, I'm going to give Sega a bit of a break because of how unclear we now know the run up to the game's release was.  Remember, there's still the questions on what happened with development, why the game looks worse in release form than during development (as some pr...

Always Online DRM blows up in EA's face

<p>[QUOTE=Rev]Wow... The reviews of the game have been average at best...

2013/2/21: Sega CD: Cliffhanger, Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective

<p>I tried playing Sherlock Holmes and it really does require an unbelievable amount of patience.  I do think that D- is accurate, though, because it is a very good showcase for the FMV capabilities (as limited as they are) of the Sega CD, given how the video is clear and the acting i...

PS4 Won't Block Used Titles

<p>Well, in a sense, they're right about people abandoning their PS3 collection.  We don't have a price on PS4 yet, but if its as big as been rumored (up to $500, I've heard), some people who want one probably would sell their PS3s to put towards the new system, especially since every subsequen...

EA Already Losing Interest In The Wii U

<p>[QUOTE=Pacman000]The Wii U/Dreamcast comparison isn't appropriate.  [/QUOTE]<br><br>You're right, because EA's still releasing games for the Wii U (Need For Speed: Most Wanted 2 is up next) and they never did with Dreamcast.  On the other hand, the Dreamcast wasn't in as dire straits at...

I ordered a Superpad 64 and a Hori mini pad.

<p>[QUOTE=rift][QUOTE=steephen]Tell me how many N64 games really USE the D-pad. And for those games the original D-pad works just FINE. It is the plastic base on the analog stick that makes the original break so easily. <br>[/QUOTE]<br><br>The super pad doesn't have a plastic base, hence why it...
