Re: Explain a video game badly

Wing Commander - Like Star Wars, except the Empire is made up of giant cat people that can fly space ships. Berzerk - A game the humanoids made to make them feel better about themselves. Us robots took their jobs, anyway. Command & Conquer - Just like watching CNN... 30 years ago. John Madden Fo...

Re: I got a Switch . . & I like it!

My wife and I got a Switch... & we like it! Seriously, we couldn't be happier with the system. We were torn between it and an Xbox One. I didn't have a say in the great PS4 / X1 debate - while I don't really like Sony or Microsoft as a brand, my wife loves her 360, and wanted to stick with Micro...

Re: 2017/12/30: Nintendo 64: NHL 99

But at the end of the day are we really going to compare the Sports games Nintendo put out in the 90's and early 2000's to Sega? Oh, not even. In no way, shape, or form do I think the N64 sports library is superior to the classic Sega Genesis lineup, or some of the all-time classics on the NES, eit...

Re: 2017/12/30: Nintendo 64: NHL 99

Thanks for these sports reviews. I've generally avoided the entire genre, but you provide a clear user-friendly explanation about the differences between a good game, an average one, and a bad title that has me rethinking the entire genre. At the very least, I'm tempted to play my first post NES ho...

Re: Winter Games!

It might not be the best suggestion (since it's already been reviewed) but GoldenEye on the Nintendo 64 always reminds me of winter. Or, rather, winter always reminds me of GoldenEye! The outdoor stages, where you're running through Siberia, have such a low-key soundtrack, and the wide-open spaces i...

Re: Random finds at used game store

Whoa, Louisville - that's my hometown! It's pretty rare for me to hear of anyone mentioning it, especially casually in conversation like that. May I ask what brought you there, Critic? If you plan on going there again, or travel there on a regular basis, I can definitely recommend a few smaller, loc...

Re: Best Sega Genesis Soundtracks?

I completely agree with your assessment on Road Rash, Retrology. As someone who lives on the Pacific Coast, and drives the actual coastal highway the level was based around (Highway 1 or 101, depending on how far North you go) it's hard not to think of that song while on the road. It really sticks w...
