Re: Kingdom Hearts. What is it? PS2

Oh, I didn't mean to say anything against it as a game ("doesn't suck" was an unwarranted understatement), just to answer the OP's question, "But what makes it so special that peeps just luv it?" It's certainly a good game, but for the kind of devoted fans I thought the OP was as...

Re: Considering a PS3

The Uncharted games are an obvious pick; they're the first that come to my mind when I think of PS3 exclusives. Both Little Big Planet games are must-haves. Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction is excellent and the last Ratchet & Clank game that really caught my attention. Wipeout HD...

Re: Kingdom Hearts. What is it? PS2

It's basically a ridiculous, melodramatic fanfiction that somehow exists as an actual game that doesn't suck. The people I knew who were into it when it was still "current" were teenage girls with accounts on DeviantArt and Fanfiction.net. Draw your own conclusions.

Re: Rayman SNES Rom found by creator Michel Ancel!

Even if he did control the character, that doesn't mean that Ubisoft still doesn't control the copyright for the SuperNes game itself. I bet you'd even see a copyright notice on the title screen attributing the copyright to Ubisoft if it got far enough along for such niceties to be added in and if ...

Re: Rayman SNES Rom found by creator Michel Ancel!

It's like a situation such as Space Invaders for the 2600 that keeps such games absent from Atari compilations today. Atari owns the 2600 game, but without permission to use the Space Invaders copyright and trademark from Taito in the form of a license like they had in the 80's, there's not a heck ...

Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

There's a difference between necessary prioritization and deliberately withholding features to milk the userbase - which, yes, is an immature and irrational understanding of why the Switch lacks DS support even though it has kinda sorta similar media.

Re: Your Favorite Video Game Soundtracks?

After knowing vaguely about it for years, I finally got curious enough to look up the arcade game Power Drift on YouTube, and... wow, that is some music! I think it's best heard in the game itself, because the sound effects disguise the crappy rhythm guitar samples and let the exuberant lead stand o...

Why a guilty pleasure? It's not unique the way the first one is, but it's still a great game.
