Re: Top 50 Console Games List REVISED!

I notice that Metal Slug is listed as a 1994 release both here and on the Neo Geo page (it's from 1996). Also, a couple typos: "avante-garde" (from the BioShock comment; should be "avant-garde", although I think that term is better applied to something like Killer7 ) and "us...

Re: Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

As for the "compared to what" part... Well, one problem I always have with 3D Mario is that I feel like the Mario characters and games have the personality of a dead trout. Even if Mario has better design, I've always preferred my platformers to have personality, so from that era I prefer...

Re: Star Wars Episode VIII theory - Rey is the Force

I doubt it. The Force Awakens did everything it possibly could to distance itself from the prequels and pander to fans of the original trilogy (i.e. the entire movie-going public). It would be very strange if it took such a central element from one of the least popular parts of the least popular pre...

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

I've already laid out my thoughts on this, so I'll just quote them here. Anyone who thinks that Rey is a "Mary Sue" completely misses the point of the character. Aside from her lightsaber skill (which is set up in literally her first scene!), she is not successful because she's just that g...

Re: Winter Games!

And then there's Steel Harbinger , a wonderfully strange (and very Nineties) third-person shooter on the PS1. You don't start out in a wintry mix, but once you clear the first stage, your mission hub is found in the Arctic. Much snow and ice ensue. This jogged my memory of the classic (???) mech FP...

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

Eh, might as well give my hot takes. I'll go bottom-to-top too. The Phantom Menace Bad in ways that don't even occur to other bad movies. What the heck is this even supposed to be about? Chinese aliens are doing a bad tax thing to the Italy planet where the Jamaican aliens live, so the good guys fly...

Re: Winter Games!

StarTropics II still doesn't have a review, even though the first game does. Plenty of ice and snow opening that one.

Re: Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

There are some weird areas where the camera either sticks when you need it to move or moves when you need it to stay put, but it works overall, and I can't think of a single complaint otherwise. Blurry textures? Seriously? You might as well be annoyed that the sprites in NES games have only four col...

Re: Reader Voting issues?

Same story: I've been following the site for years, and the drop-down menu has never worked in any browser. I just use the arrow keys to select a rating, which is probably what most people have learned to do.

Re: 2017/11/28: Playstation 4: Redout, Wild Guns: Reloaded

You could still review Fatal Inertia on the 360. It is Keoi's Wipeout clone. I haven't played the original 360 Fatal Inertia , but I really like the supposedly improved Fatal Inertia EX on the PS3. It has a very interesting emphasis on physics and pitch control, and while that sometimes just means ...
