Re: You Have to Go Online

bluenote - Is your message serious? Look at what you wrote. Look at your first point - "buy a game, go through a 45 min process, and play". 20 years ago you would have thought this was a joke. I have to perform a bunch of maintenance chores and wait a long period of time to play a game I ...

Re: You Have to Go Online

Stalvern, Well stated! It reminds me of when banks replaced most of their human tellers with ATMs, and of course saved millions of dollars in the process. But they didn't stop there. They had the nerve to start charging their customers "convenience fees". Why? Because they could. Good lor...

Re: What are you playing while stuck at home?

I just finished Paper Mario Colour Splash on Wii U. Since then I've been playing various NES games such as Batman, Snow Bros (repro cart), Bubble Bobble and Blades of Steel.

I think I'm going to start Link's Awakening on Switch tonight.

Re: All the way through?

Just beat paper Mario colour splash on wii u. Whew, long game! Probably 30 hours or so, which for me took me 4 months or so. Also, had to resort to a guide. Too many times it was unclear what card you need to beat a boss and even more to difficult to backtrack to find that particular card! Glad I’m ...

Re: Can't beat classic hockey

As much as I loved the old '94 NHL hockey, the new ones are still just as good (if not better). I have NHL '15 for PS3 (the newest one I have) and play with my son all the time. You need to turn off penalties, offsides, and icing and turn on the "NHL 94" control scheme and it plays amazing...

Re: Atari Flashback X

This looks cool, but I think I'll stick to my original console. I actually just recently modded my 6 switch for rgb output and the picture looks perfect! I then purchased 2 new upgraded joysticks and 2 sets of upgraded new paddles from best electronics and I'm good to go! These are amazing and guar...

Re: Remember Type-In Games?

When I was a kid in the early 80's I had an Atari home computer and I learned how to program on that. Computer magazines were a big deal and I would devour Antic, Analog, and Compute magazines. Back then they contained type-in programs (mostly games) which contained pages and pages of tiny, tedious...

Re: Amazon Links

To be honest, I really liked the YouTube links. After reading the review and seeing the one screenshot you include, it's nice and easy to click on the YouTube link to see a quick video showing the game in action.

Yes, I can go to YouTube and search, but your links make this much easier
