Re: Metroid Prime?

A few years ago I played through EVERY Metroid game back to back, with pretty much 100% completion on each. Metroid Prime 1 is probably the best example of a 2D game turned 3D. The whole "lonely" feel of the 2D games is captured perfectly in a new 3D world. Things that stick out are the mu...

Re: Should nintendo drop the gimmicks?

Hi everyone, I think we are all skirting around the real issue here. Nintendo is putting out consoles that are lower specs than their competitors. I remember back in the 16-bit days when graphical horsepower was the rallying cry for Nintendo fans. They were right. The SNES was, in most categories, b...

Re: Youtubers and The Price of Video Games

What I hate most is when Youtubers do a top 10 rare list, or something to that effect. They bring attention to things that are already rare, causing the prices to go through the roof. I think this is irresponsible. When something is rare, people's instincts are to gobble it up as fast as possible. I...

Re: Independence Day games

The most 4th of July game for me is Fantavision. It's already been reviewed though, and the game is quite tiresome.

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

I no longer see any consoles as overrated or underrated within retro circles (such as the people who browse this site). We all know more about the consoles more so than we did say five years ago. As for the general public, I'd say NES and SNES or overrated, while ALL non-Genesis Sega consoles are un...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

Boycott, boycott, boycott. After the way Nintendo treated the consumer with the NES mini, we should not reward their behavior by standing in line to buy another system. I'm serious.

Re: Sega making some moves. Subscription service?

I have them all on console, but it's cool that a new generation of people can experience them, and get to know the IP that us here already know by heart. If this service comes to consoles, then it's an even bigger win.

Re: Should original Xbox review be updated to reflect its poor reliability?

Poor reliability relative to what? An optical disc-based console that is multiple generations removed? Are we comparing it to solid state, cartridge-based consoles? If you ask me, lasting until now, after running hours and hours on end through years and years, seems fairly respectable. To me, poor ...

Re: Sega making some moves. Subscription service?

Well, they finally revealed it. It's basically free-to-play classic games on mobile devices. Games from all consoles will be included eventually.
