Re: Should I buy an original Game Boy?

I don't think my gamecube (with GBA player attached) works anymore. I was using that to play the games on tv. I have a backlit GBA sp and ds lite that I use for GBA games. I also have something called a GB boy colour. It's pretty good for a Chinese knockoff. The screen is just a little less vertical...

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

I decided all that work just to see if I could fix it wasn't worth it. Good thing it was a cheap game (49 cents, bought on a gift card.)

There must be a huge epidemic of people not taking care of their games. I always see people laying there discs on top of each other, when they should be in cases.

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

I did buy the game for that price. When I start it up, I will see if there is a way to turn them off. Ads in a $60 game is ridiculous, but if you can turn them off, I guess it's not terrible. The controversy in my opinion is, is this game even playable without an sd card? It needed something like 32...

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

All my other games work fine on my xbox, so it's not that.

Boiling the disc didn't work. Has anyone ever tried brasso? it's a metal polish. Seems like it would be abrasive and do more harm than good, but I have seen people say it works and that they have had success with it.

Re: 2019/6/15: Playstation 4: Raiden V: Director's Cut, Mortal Kombat 11

I love Mortal Kombat, but I wasn't really interested in the last two games. How is the lighting in the game? I think that may have been why I was uninterested. The atmospheres and character models just seemed too dark to enjoy. The other thing I loved about MK 9 and Deadly Alliance was the Krypt. Wi...

Re: Anyone else totally underwhelmed by Cuphead?

There's a great thread here also stating that Celeste is a big name indie that is overrated. I have not played that or Cuphead, so I won't comment on the quality of those games, but I wonder if the art style in general of some of these indie games is why they get so much praise.

Re: Monday Recap June 10, 2019

Great post. Timely too, coinciding with the 20th anniversary, it gives a look into the basis of what goes in to writing the reviews. Looks like a fun process. I didn't even notice the other tv at first. I have two TV's as well. I currently have a backwards compatible wii, n64, ps2, and original xbox...

Re: Sonic Team Racing (Switch)

I watched a review for this game on youtube, and they did mention that it was 30 frames per second on the switch, as opposed to 60 on the xbox one and ps4. I thought about getting it. I'm not that crazy about the team mechanic, although I'm sure I'd get used to it. The game looks pretty good, but I'...

Re: An unexpected remastered license game announced!

This is interesting. Due to this, I was looking at prices for the game, and they have gone up. The gamecube version of the game is around the same price as the new remaster! I actually found the gamecube version for 8 dollars at a flea market yesterday. Pretty good deal, but the game doesn't work. I...

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

I have gotten discs to work by dropping the disc into boiling water for like 3 to 5 seconds, then wiping it with an eyeglass cloth. Sometimes gunk gets on it and boiling remedies that. I've done it several times and it did work, and never harmed the disc. No guarantees of course. I've never heard t...
