Re: Basic Cell Phone Users?

Ha I don't even have a phone! Lol. I do have a Galaxy S4(just sold the S3) that I use at home with wifi but it isn't connected as a phone and doesn't leave the house. Use it for skype and a couple of IM apps to keep in touch. Truthfully, I liked the QWERTY phones more than the basic basic phones. My...

Re: Tales of Hardware Failures

The only reason I even purchased the PSP Go was to expand my collection, and even at that, I am astounded (not really) at how badly this thing is built. It doesn't even age well after years of not being used. There are dead pixels everywhere and the whole thing gets hot after ten minutes. That heat...

Re: Tales of Hardware Failures

First was my front loader NES probably about 20 years ago. The usual 72 pin connector problems. My launch day Dreamcast stopped reading discs in about 2002, I think. Replaced it with one that is still running fine but has developed an oddly dim video output that I can't seem to fix. Xbox 360 from Ja...

Re: Why I Think Sonic 3D Blast Is Underrated

I was thinking the same thing. I just replayed Sonic 3D Blast on my Saturn, and after beating it I'll go as far as saying it's a pretty good game. The music is awesome, the graphics are detailed and colorful, and the bonus stages are pretty fun. Of course it doesn't reach the levels of the original ...

Re: Least Favorite 2D Sonic Games?

My least favorite(I don't own every single game) is Sonic 2 on the Game Gear. Facing bosses with 0 rings on the cramped GG screen sucks in my opinion.

Re: Fighting Stick

There are a bunch of PS2/PS3, and PS3/PS4 peripherals out there.

Amazon has got two cross platform arcade sticks that I see. Reviews look good, but I can't provide any personal experience.

Re: Does anyone else beside me, Dave the Video Game Critic, and Rich of ReviewTechUSA hate the PS4/Xbox One/Wii U?

It's not so much that the Wii U sucks imo, but it sucks for 300 ish dollars. If they had cut the price of the system at some point it would have been a lot more tempting. Even used they go for a lot. I don't hate the new systems, because I haven't bothered to buy them. I hate online, but I'm not gon...

Re: Video Game Reviews Broken Article

If I had to guess, most reviewers are in someones pocket. Hell, game companies have publicly blacklisted reviewers for giving bad reviews. Exactly. What was it Eidos v Gamespot all those years ago? I figured game reviewers were bought and paid for by the time I was 15. Big titles, no matter how bad...

Re: Advice for future retro gaming on a budget?

As cool as it is I don't see much point in the CDX if you have the Genesis. A Sega CD will set you back less. I'd go for the Wii. The Wii may not have as many great games as other systems(imo) but even if you just use it for GC games it's worth it. The ability to run games with component cables or t...

Re: Favorite Racing Games Of All Time Thread

OutRun 2 - Xbox

Fun, easy, beautiful to look at. I like my racing games highly unrealistic. I'm tired of earning licenses and tuning cars.
