Re: It looks like indie and smaller company support may reduce on PS5 based on a recent article

Here's the actual WSJ article: https://www.wsj.com/articles/sony-posit ... 1561800603

Still need to read it; just providing the link to simplify things. (Why read Nintendo Life's commentary when the original's right there?)

Re: 2019/6/29: Game Boy: Jurassic Park, Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues

I enjoyed the 1st two levels of Jurassic Park; it's kinda like an updated version of Atari's Adventure, with dinosaurs! Never got past the 2nd boss. Did you? Did anyone?

Re: Ever buy a console for one specific game?

A PS3 for Lair.

Clarification: I'd owned a PS3 before but lost it. I saw the game for $2. I'd always been interested in it, even tho it got bad reviews, so I bought it figuring I could get another PS3 later.

Hint for distinguishing upper & lower case letters in passwords: underline the uppercase letters.

A handful of unlicensed games won't work on the GBA.

Re: Should I buy an original Game Boy?

I've heard some screens have dead pixels, but I've not seen it myself. I need to get my old Game Boy out, to see if it's developed any problems.

I would recommend getting one for historical context, tho you will need to adjust the screen contrast knob for some games.

Re: Has anyone actually ever repaired a game disc without resurfacing?

Tried eyeglass cleaner on my scratched game disks; didn't work. Maybe it would've if they'd been dirty, not scratched.

Re: Modern Full Price $60 Video Games with YouTube style ads that are unskippable!

The developer forgot that YouTube is free...& that you can pay for an ad-free version.

Re: Games that are perfect examples of great design?

I usually use the "simple to learn, hard to master" standard. Combine that with your variety requirement, & I pick: Tetris Ms. Pacman Galaga Bosconnian Adventure Super Mario Bros 3 Donkey Kong Land 2 (I may modify this later to add reasons, & games which didn't quite make the cut.)

Re: Merge Game Boy Reviews?

Color games will not play on the original Game Boy, so they should be in separate categories.

Advance games will not play on the original or color Game Boys, so, again, they need to have their own category.
