Re: eBooks and video games

It may have leveled off for now but the ebook will still probably kill off the book. It's just taking a breather. I suspect it just that so many young people have switched over to ebooks that its already saturated that market and the old fogeys just haven't died off yet. In thirty years, it'll be al...

Re: I really hate Windows updates

I do not recommend Windows 10. Just way to many privacy concerns with Microsoft now wanting to collect all kinds of personal data(just like Google already does :x ) , but also Windows 10 is the first Windows where you can not refuse updates. In windows 8 you can actually set it to only download and ...

Re: Most Emo Characters from Video Games/other media!

I'm not sure about actually being emo in character, but I am playing through Resident Evil 4 and I can't help but think what is up with Leon's hair? He can't even see out of both eyes. It definitely looks silly for someone with police/special ops background. You're gonna save the presidents daughter...

Re: What's your "Favorite" game? Ever.

Single player: This is really tough, and has definitely changed over the years. Right now, I think I would say Shenmue II. I love exploring the world, and just taking in the scenery. I can somehow immerse myself in the life of Ryo unlike any other game. Multiplayer: No doubt, Goldeneye 007. I played...

Re: Best place to sell (Xbox) video games?

Yeah, ebay gets the highest price probably but it's a pain and you wind up forking over upwards of 30% of whatever you get. Maybe we can set up selling/buying threads on the forum? That would be neat, cut out the middle man and just sell them gamer to gamer.

Re: Time to bring back cartridges!

It will never ever happen, but it sure would be neat. MS and Sony really want to go download only. It allows much more control for them and even better anti-piracy than cartridges. Technically I'm sure a cartridge based console is totally feasible. The cost of the flash isn't that bad really. Most g...

Re: Most and Least Comfortable Controllers

I always thought the Genesis three button was actually more comfortable than the six. The best controller ever, no contest has gotta be the Xbox Controller S. It just feels perfect in my hands, never understood why they changed the shape for the 360. Worst controller that I've personally used was pr...

Re: Classic vs Modern Gaming: Where's the line?

I agree with the above except that I'd almost have to split up the 2D. Atari 2600/Intellivision/early 80's games are very different than SNES/Genesis games. Games like Pac-Man and Asteroids are great but it isn't until the NES and later that games began to really even attempt to tell stories. Imagin...

Re: Factual error thread

I've noticed a couple of odd release dates.
Dark Seed for Sega Saturn is listed as 1993. The Saturn wasn't even released until 94 in Japan. Wikipedia lists the release as 1995 for the Saturn version, if we trust them as a source. There was a version released for the Amiga in 1993.

Re: My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

Good timing. We finish III (return of Spock) and IV (voyage home) this weekend. I had a hard time getting into return of Spock, but I enjoyed voyage home quite a bit. That said, it's definitely the funny/goofy one of the series, and I wouldn't want another one like that. The more I watch, the appre...
