Re: RetroPie?

I've been emulating a while and my favorite way is still using the Homebrew Channel on my hacked Wii console so I can use the Wii Classic controll for all my gaming up to N64. It's a tad harder than it used to be since the Homebrew Browser went offline, so you have to do things manually, but I seem ...

Re: Games that killed/ruined the genres Reception in certain regions/consoles/gave negative stigmas, etc?

Once I got to the first mention of Trevor McFur in the original post, I actually stopped to reevaluate what I had just read, because I was worried I hadn't yet realized that it was all sarcasm or some kind of parody...

Re: Games that killed/ruined the genres Reception in certain regions/consoles/gave negative stigmas, etc?

It's not impossible for a major flop to poison the public's view of a genre. It's also possible for a major flop to convince companies to invest in other genres. I read an essay once, can't remember where, which suggested Atari's poor Pac-Man port hurt the public's confidence in video games, or at ...

Re: Atari Flashback?

Wow, if one of those really does get HDMI output and wireless controllers, I'll be finally picking one up myself. That sounds like it has the makings of a legitimate console, especially if there's a way to add ROMs on your own. Definitely intriguing...

Re: The SNES mini is Nintendo's last chance for me

As Strats article gives evidence too, the Switch is a vastly overpriced tablet. My kids enjoy their tablets, which are lighter, smaller, play movies, have the internet, have ereaders, boatloads of easy to learn games, boatloads of cheap games, boatloads of diverse games like minecraft, etc. Lots of...

Re: The SNES mini is Nintendo's last chance for me

Very interesting if it's truly the main reason. That would mean Nintendo would actually be frustrated by this instead of feeling clever. I was thinking yesterday about the difference between the Wii, the Wii U, and the Switch, and how they started off, especially after reading that old thread someo...

Re: The SNES mini is Nintendo's last chance for me

I just picked up a Switch a couple days ago. I had already accepted the fact that I would have to wait a few months to get one, but while in the game section of my local Fry's in Las Vegas, I approached the employee behind the little counter and sheepishly asked if, by some crazy chance, they knew w...
