Re: Power-Up Membership Testing

bluenote: I hear what you're saying, and all I can ask is that you take my word for it that I have NO plans to go the slippery slope route. This new feature is NOT taking away any content. It's just a convenience. I'm no fan of ads, but they do help pay for the site. More people are using ad blocke...

Re: Power-Up Membership Testing

I gotta say, I really hate this idea. Right now, it's $10 for no ads, then it's a slippery slope to $10 for the right to post messages, or $10 for an advance preview of the latest review, etc. I see this so often with Youtubers constantly using Patreon. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to pretend t...

Re: How does your wife/significant other/mom deal with your video games?

I'm a pretty moderate gamer, only playing an hour or so here or there. To me, it's all about balance. If you're playing 5 hours every night in the basement, while you're wife is doing her own thing, then you're going to have problems. I will play a couple of hours on a Monday for instance, then on T...

Re: Analog NT: The Ultimate NES!

Jeremy parish did a very thorough review of it.

I am actually getting my nes modded for rgb and that is $200. Just waiting to get it back. Much cheaper than the nt, and the video quality is pretty close to the nt, if not the same

Re: State of the Site Address 2016

Ugh, please no "rants" page! I'm so burned out on people complaining on the internet, especially gamers.

Top 10 lists sounds great.

How about portable console reviews?

Re: Star Wars Episode VII Discussion ***SPOILERS***

I'll be honest, this whole back and forth regarding Rey being a woman is kinda lost on me. I really didn't pay attention to the fact that she is a woman when I was watching the movie. That fact really had nothing to do with me thinking that she was a great character, regardless of being a man or wom...

Re: Star Wars Episode VII Discussion ***SPOILERS***

Scotland, you've made some great points (some of which I haven't thought of), but perhaps they are showing just how much stronger Rey is with the force than Luke was? Maybe they are saying "you remember how Luke fuddled around with the force and took him a long time to get good at it, well, loo...

Re: When did console gaming jump the shark?

I don't see how gaming "jumped the shark" at all. In relation to tv shows, jumping the shark is when there is a ridiculous premise/storyline that is often introduced at the peak of the show and the show declines rapidly after that. I don't see how this applies to gaming at all. Gaming righ...

Is Nintendo going to back to cartridges (SD Cards) for the new NX?

Hey everyone, I came across this article and it makes a very compelling case as to if Nintendo may be planning on going to SD cards for the NX. The article is a few months old, but is a really good read. http://gamingbolt.com/nintendo-nx-why-not-having-a-optical-drive-could-potentially-work-in-the-b...

Re: Do you have a game room?

I have a basement, buy not dedicated to videogames. I have 2 young kids, so it's a family room. I have a 42" led tv, couch and recliner. I only have 2 or 3 consoles hooked up at any one time, with the rest stored away. I have a framemeister to use with my old systems on the led tv. I only have ...
