Re: Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)

21 years, 1996 vs 2017. Without doubt Odyssey is a more polished game but it drew most it's inspiration from a classic 1996 title. Does not diminish the greatness of the original game. As is the case with most, if not all early 3D titles, they do not hold up well when viewed through a contemporary l...

Re: Best open world RPG of this gen: Witcher III, Skyrim, or other?

Horizon Zero Dawn is worth a look. While lacking in many RPG elements, it still tentatively keeps much of the formula intact - XP system, managing skill sets, and upgrading inventory. Where it deviates from the RPG experience is the staged story line, single ending, and lack of any meaningful intera...

Re: Xbox One X Review

I picked up an Xbox One X, the console has a small form factor and is a very nifty bit of kit. One thing should be clear though, the Xbox One X is still an Xbox One. It does not have anything exclusive - games will run on the base Xbox One X and most if not all will end up being co-released on the P...

Re: Console Holiday 2017 Shopping Guide

You could include a section for the PC. Nowaday's most AAA multiplatform titles end up on the PC, even if many end up poorly optimized requiring numerous patches and updates. However, there is a price factor with PC gaming. While a Gaming PC is a considerable investment consider this: I bought Rise ...

Re: Got me a SWITCH!

This is the first Nintendo console I have bought in a while and I am pretty excited about it. I picked up Mario and Just Dance 2018. So far very happy with it. Mario is a lot of fun albeit a tad on the easy side. For your Switch fans out there what games would you recommend? Zelda is a no brainer b...

Re: Xbox One X launch

Against my better judgement and sensibilities, I did pick up an Xbox One X on the 7th. Definitely has a solid and compact design - quite a good deal smaller than my PS4 Pro. So far so good but I only play tested one game, Assassin's Creed Origins. A few frame rate hiccups here and there but no major...

Re: Bad news for Switch players.

I was one of those that got the Jaguar. Cybermorph was only game I had for 3 weeks before picking up Alien Vs Predator. In retrospect, both games were fairly weak- even much lauded AVP was far too maze like to be completely enjoyable. I owned this console for approximately 6 months before giving up ...

Re: What Console to Buy This Holiday?

Personally, I’ve been thinking of buying myself a PS3, mostly to play Gran Turismo 5 & 6. Despite growing up with PS1 and PS2, I ended up getting an Xbox 360 instead of sticking with familiar territory. I did get a PS4 two years ago, but I still wanna see what I missed with it’s predecessor. Pl...

Re: Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening (Game Boy)

Anyone enjoy Linke Between Worlds? I need a new game for my 3DS... If you liked Link to the Past, it will be easy to enjoy Link between Worlds. It offered plenty of nostalgic moments. It had enough original content to feel like a new game but much of Link to the Past was reused in some form or anot...
