Re: Great Moments in Gaming

I think one of my favorite gaming moments was Big Boo's Haunt in Super Mario 64. It seemed like every other Mario style Ghost House like from Super Mario World and Paper Mario and other games, but then I did the Red Coin Hunt star in that world. When I got into the room with the piano, that thing j...

Re: Sega Genesis Classic Console (2016)

There were other permanent deaths from the era; it was just rare that a character with any potential was cut down. Phantasy Star, meanwhile, loved that trope. IV introduced us to Alys, who was strong enough to help out new players, while encouraging their growth. Of course her first instinct, when ...

Re: Games you used to like, but aged like milk.

This whole thing with people trashing Goldeneye is so ridiculous. It makes me wonder do these people not even like James Bond? Because I'm a huge James Bond fan and I love the game. Would you rather be playing Magic the Gathering or watching Marvel movies? If so, I understand such a weak opinion on...

Re: Sega Genesis Classic Console (2016)

Phantasy Star II. This was one of the most memorable RPG experiences of my youth. A very different experience (in many ways) from the Final Fantasy games everyone was playing on Nintendo systems. I love this game too but I can't imagine playing it without the extensive maps you constantly need to r...

Re: 2016/11/2: Playstation: Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain

Long time lurker, now starting to post. I agree for the most part with this review. Playing through the various Legacy of Kain games really is more of an exercise in story appreciation than game play. I personally like the whole "suck blood out of them with magic power" bit that the game i...

Re: Games you used to like, but aged like milk.

Most stuff from the PS1/Saturn/N64 generation. Specifically: Mario 64 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Goldeneye I think Goldeneye in particular is pretty putrid to play these days. I like Ocarina of Time, but I don't love it anymore. It's pretty overrated. Mario 64 feels like an ugly, empty, w...

Re: Games you used to like, but aged like milk.

Have you ever played a game and immediately fell in love with it? Spent hours trying to beat it? But years later, you come back and play it and realize that it aged like milk. For me, that game is Tenchu Stealth Assasins, with it's awfully blocky models and annoyingly clunky controls. What about yo...
