Re: 2017/11/26: Playstation Vita: Dariusburst: Chronicle Saviors (Japan)

Also great for short bursts is TxK, Jeff Minter's ridiculously over the top Tempest 2k sequel. No words can do it's arcade aesthetic justice. You've got to see a screenshot to believe it, but somehow, the effects never get in the way of gameplay. Screenshots are about as useful as words. This game ...

Re: Wii U the new Dreamcast?

People love the Dreamcast for its small but extremely unique and memorable library, for kicking off the sixth generation with its cutting-edge graphics, and for being both Sega's last stand in the console market and a focused return to form after the fumbles of their previous system. The Dreamcast i...

Re: 2017/11/23: Genesis: Zero Wing (Europe), Steel Empire

Yeah, I don't get what's up with the Steel Empire review. The game has some slowdown, but it's nothing like the outright choppiness that the review seems to be describing and certainly not enough to spoil the game. That's literally the only complaint the review actually raises, so the idea that the ...

Re: Underrated And Overlooked Albums

Overlooked: http://i.imgur.com/MLW3tSK.png Woven - 8-Bit Monk (2003) No, it's not Gregorian chant chiptunes. I don't know how they came up with the name. This is an album that definitely sounds like the time it came out, but I mean that in a good way. It's pretty similar to Radiohead's Hail to the T...

Re: Dr. EA Robotnik strikes again!

Remembered this and went back to the article in the OP. Kicking myself for not paying enough attention the first time. After the Battlefront II BS, it couldn't be more obvious that "an experience that players will want to come back to and enjoy for a long time to come" is PR-speak for &quo...

Re: RIP Wii U 5th birthday!

It was a bad idea from the beginning. Underpowered and built around a completely useless gimmick. Casual players bought the Wii because its controller simplified play and broke down a layer between the player and the game, but the Wii U's complicated interface was the exact opposite; it added a laye...

Re: 2017/11/17: Sega CD: Revenge of the Ninja, Starblade

I wish there were more anarchistic oddities like Starblade. Console 3d was always one generation behind what they were trying to achieve. We could have had perfect wireframe driving simulations in 16 bit, and silky smooth, high resolution, flat-shaded polygons in 32bit. Hey, I like the arcade Virtu...

Re: Sega 32X PWM Audio vs Game Boy Advance PWM Audio?

And what I meant to say is would have it been possible to port GBA PWM music tracks to the Sega 32X PWM if homebrew communities tried like this example.: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Bhft6GcmQE. Because it does show how much missed potential the Sega 32X was in its hardware capabilities due to ...
