Re: Return of Toejam and Earl?

Gave it a go the other day. Finished building the ship for one go. And I'll be doing it again, single player, and multiplayer. This game really takes everything great about the original TJ&E and expands upon that. The art style isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, and the controls are a...

Re: RIP Wii Shop Channel to end service on January 31, 2019!

A reminder that the shop will close next week! sad to see it go. I still have 1000 points that I need to spend, possibly on an n64 or wiiware game. I've heard maboshi's arcade is good. Trying to decide, but should probably go with a wiiware game that I won't be able to get after the shop closes . W...

Re: Album Sales Dying Fast

Sad thing, this is what contributes to the rising cost of concert ticket prices. Since people aren't buying albums, bands need to charge absurd amounts for their concert tickets now. This is why I can now only afford to see one big show a year, and see bands at smaller venues (like the Kix show I ju...

I guess this is an F- game in the reader's eyes.

Re: Game of the Year 2018?

Axiom Verge is a 2015 game, even if the Switch port was late.

Everybody is going to say Red Dead, because it IS a masterpiece. But I'd have to say GoW (Ps4) did great for me and takes my spot.

Re: Records vs. CDs vs. digital music

I'm from the era of Vinyl (born in '73) and I honestly think anyone who says vinyl sounds better is just a hipster, or maybe hatched to the sound of their childhood.

Re: Xbox HL2

I wasn't aware of any level changes to Half-Life 2 on the original Xbox. Must be pretty subtle since it's the first I've heard of it. I'll have to keep my eyes open since I want to give it a spin soon after only playing the 360 and PC versions for the better part of 15 years now, since first playin...

Re: Xbox HL2

It IS a good conversion. While there are some minor hiccups in frame rate (nothing too horrendous) and some level design changes (some more noticeable than others) it's by-and-large the exact same game. So, still a fantastic romp, and a hell of a time. And best of all, the Xbox version is cheap!
