Internet gaming making us lazy?

[QUOTE=Jon]Even if you spent the same time on each type, there's so much more information and knowledge that you need to remember in today's games, whereas back then it was about mastering jumps or beating a tough boss. It forces you to get immersed in it and learn all of the information that comes ...

Internet gaming making us lazy?

[QUOTE=Jon]I never thought until now how lazy it's making people that they don't even have to leave the house anymore for games. I'm worried that kids today are so warped because all they do is play games all day. They don't ever go out into the real world and learn real world things. And the fact g...

Nintendo 3DS XL launching in February

I love my 3DS XL, but I was disappointed with how easy the 3D goes out of focus.  It looks like this new one takes care of that.  I'm really tempted to get this.

Which system is the undisputed king of RPGs?

For portables, definately the DS. 

For console, I would say SNES

Chrono Trigger (Nintendo DS)

Thanks for the review, I may pick this up as well.  I was thinking of getting it for the SNES, but it's easier for me (time wise) to play RPG's on a handheld.  Plus, it's much cheaper on the DS!

The Goldbergs

Did anyone see the episode last night?  Very video game focused.  Adam gets a power glove, and sees the Wizard.  Lots of games/systems shown:  Intellivision, Atari 2600, Duckhunt, etc.

Really funny episode!

Is anyone else getting tired of Kickstarter (video game related)

I'm a big fan of Jeremy Parish, I really enjoy his writing and his views.  However, I see that Retronauts (one of my favourite podcasts) is going to continue for another year but they are asking for money through Kickstarter so Jeremy can fly to the location where the podcast is being taped, ra...

How often do you play retro games?

I go back and forth between my Wii U and 3DS (my only current gen consoles) and retro games.  Just really depends on my mood.

I do play my retro consoles hooked up to my 42 LED through a Framemeister.  Will never go back to CRT again.
