Re: What if, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS was canceled and Super Smash Bros. for WiiU was a exclusive instead?

Considering the 3DS version outsold the Wii U version 2-1, Nintendo would've lost out on about $240 million in revenue.

Re: Star Wars Episode VII Discussion ***SPOILERS***

No need to cover the plot as scotland already did. A total retread of ANH(with a dash of ESB). I found that pretty disappointing, apparently more so than most. http://www.meh.ro/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/meh.ro12158.jpg This pic has a humorous version of it. My scatterbrained initial reactions: My ...

Fear Effect - PS1

I really, really want to like this game. The cel shaded graphics and animated background look great and the game has great atmosphere. However, the control sucks really, really, really bad. I'm fine with Resident Evils tank controls, but this is a whole 'nother level of antiquated. Normally a game c...

Re: Now Is The Time to Buy PS3 and 360 Games

Do you happen to have any recommendations for 360 exclusive titles? I have the PS3 and 360 but if it's cross platform I prefer to pick the PS3 version so that leaves pretty much exclusives. Just out of curiosity why do you prefer the PS3? Most multi-plat games run a bit better on the 360 so I'm jus...

Re: Metal Slug 3 (Xbox)

It's hard but not impossible and still a great port. It's hard to balance difficulty on arcade home ports so this one works for me. It's better than the limitless continues some versions might give you. I still have issues with the Anthology which if I ever pick up a PS2 I can test how it is with th...

Re: Dads/fathers: when do you find time to play?

Is is bad that I worry about this as a married 30 year old with no kids? My wife wants kids (2) and I don't care if we have any at all, so we've compromised at one. The thing is, we're both getting settled in our careers and are planning to get a house, so we've put the kid thing on hold. However, ...

Re: Now Is The Time to Buy PS3 and 360 Games

It's also a good time to polish off that PS2 and original Xbox collection before the prices rise too much. In a couple years they are going to be getting expensive. Ps360 seems like they've hit rock bottom. Ebay prices for nearly any game released more than a couple years ago seems to be under 10 bu...

Re: Can you play Game Gear games on a TV?

Getting the cartridge to fit should work for the SMS to Game Gear but as far as I know Game Gear to SMS is impossible because of the wider color palette. There are patched GG roms that can be played on an SMS though. I suspect that final note is like it says "for dumping cartridges", not t...

Re: Can you play Game Gear games on a TV?

Not on a device you can buy. Even more frustrating because it's nearly identical to the Master System only with only a larger color palette. The Game Gear does contain the hardware necessary to output a video signal, but you have to modify the system yourself. https://nobitleftbehind.wordpress.com/2...
