Re: Video Game Culture in the NHL

I think this applies to most of the other major sports too. I don't follow the NHL too closely, but I've noticed it a lot with the NFL and NBA, going back at least a decade now. Series like Madden and NBA 2K have made players comfortable talking about playing games in the locker room. There doesn't ...

Re: 2018/8/28: Sega Master System: Aztec Adventure, Submarine Attack (Europe)

Typo alert on Submarine Attack. "Even" in the first sentence should be "ever". Subtle difference, but changes the intended meaning.

Re: Madden Tournament Shooting

I've been following this story a bit more than the usual news, since it's video game related. I'm still hoping to learn more news about the motive here. Unfortunately, I don't think it's as easy as saying people shouldn't take games so seriously... People might have said that about football, or bask...

Re: Who didn't own a NES in the 80's?

In the 80s, we had a 7800 and then an NES. Personally I wasn't even aware the Master System existed back then. I wonder if it was just me, or if most kids weren't aware of the Master System back then... The first time I ever heard of Sega was when I played a Genesis at my uncle's house sometime arou...

Re: 2018/8/20: Sega 32X: RBI Baseball '95

I also have this Batter Up controller for the Genesis, which I've never tried: Batterupcontroller.jpg That looks....terrible :lol: Ha, it definitely does! If I remember correctly, I think it even uses sensors to allow motion controls (i.e., by swinging the bat to swing in the game). I'm sure it wor...

Re: 2018/8/20: Sega 32X: RBI Baseball '95

This review is making me interested to try this one out. Despite being a fan of sports games, I don't think I ever played a 16-bit era baseball game... I played a bunch on the NES and then didn't play another until the N64. This one looks really good, at least from the screenshot you posted. For som...

Re: VGC Tries Virtual Reality

If I could get a cheap setup (under $200) I would be tempted, but otherwise I'll remain on the sidelines for now. Btw, as luck would have it, the Oculus Go sells for $200, which is the only genuine VR system that you can get at that price right now. It has everything built right in, whereas the reg...

Re: VGC Tries Virtual Reality

A year or so ago, I got to try the HTC Vive for about 30 minutes at an arcade near my house. I played a few FPS style games, where you stand in one spot and shoot things. One was a survival horror zombie game, one was set in space, and one was a castle defense game with a bow and arrow (which was my...

Re: 2018/8/17: Turbografx-16: Moto Roader, Super Volleyball

New Turbografx reviews, nice. I've never played these, but looks like I haven't missed much. Your annoyance at Moto Roader is hilarious, great review. Super Volleyball looks a lot like Power Spike II for the Neo Geo, with the same 2D view, although it sounds like it plays much better. I've played Po...

Re: Street Fighter 30th Anniversary

I'm no Street Fighter fan, so my advice is more generic, but for fighting games I'd always choose the Playstation version over the Switch version. #1, the controller is probably the most important thing, and the PS4 controller would be way better, especially the d-pad and sticks. You have the X-Arca...
