Re: Microvision System Review

Thanks for posting this, VGC. And for contributing a lot to the content and formatting - it looks good. Back when I bought my Microvision, I could not find any game reviews around the internet. I was pretty surprised, considering its historical place as the first handheld video game system. Since I ...

Re: Uncharted 4... isn't a game

Uncharted 4 was the first game I played in the series, and loved it. I thought it had a great story and enjoyed the cutscenes (even if a few do run too long). Then again, Metal Gear Solid is my favorite series so you know I can live with lengthy cutscenes. I recently tried Uncharted 2 - which has le...

Re: New Arcade Systems for $300

Some companies made machines like this about 10 years ago. They sold for like $400, small size like these, but with like 10-15 games each. Here's an example of a Konami one: http://www.aceamusements.us/konami-12-in-1-arcade-classics-video-multicade.html It sounded cool then too, but once I saw them ...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

Interesting. I wish they said the sales figures to see how big the difference was. I didn't care about the NES Classic at all when it was first announced a couple years ago -- until no one could get one... then suddenly I wanted one. It's awful how our brains work. I never got one back then. Then fo...

Re: Recent Travels

Good to have you back, ptdebate! I was worried that you got kidnapped or something, but good to see that you were just out of the country for awhile. I've never traveled to those areas, but I do have interest in traveling there someday, particularly Japan. How easy/hard is it to visit those areas if...

Re: Hotline Miami (PS3/Vita/PC, 2013)

I downloaded this one a few months ago on the PS4.. It was on sale for $4 and I saw the positive reviews online, so I figured I'd give it a shot. Haven't played it yet, but this post here is making me more interested in it. Maybe soon. There is a sequel too, but the reviews make it sound like the fi...

"The Tetris Effect"

I was recently reading through Game Informer's Top 300 Games of All-Time, which is a list they released in their 300th issue earlier this year. Tetris was #3 on that list (SMB3 and Zelda: Link to the Past were #2 and #1). In the Tetris write-up, they had an interesting side note about something that...

I second that. I'm familiar with T & C, but have never played it. Still, I enjoyed reading your take on it Herschie.

Re: Sonic Mania Plus (Switch)

1. Looking forward to playing this game. While I could buy it on PS4, I think I'll wait til I get a Switch. Seems like a better fit on that system. 2. Count me as another half-pipe hater. Between Sonic 1 and 2, I prefer the Sonic 1 bonus stages by far- I always loved bouncing around like a pinball t...

Re: 2018/7/23: Xbox 360: Red Dead Redemption

Great to get your take on this game. I've had this one in my "to play" queue for a few years now, but I've never gotten around to it. It's a lengthy time commitment, so I haven't been in a hurry to start it. And I've also been waiting to see if Red Dead Redemption 2 (coming out later this ...
