Re: New Game Boy Review Trio

Here's Hoping for the Donkey Kong Land series, though that one should also include the DKC port on the GBC, given that it is based on the same engine. There's also the Arcade Classic games, of which only a couple have been reviewed thus far (Arcade Classic 1, 2 and 3 haven't been reviewed yet, to my...

Re: Stadia launch lineup announced and still do not care.

I still see ads for the thing, though I would say it is a bit early to call it DOA, as this is the usual slow lull that follows 4th Quarter, where releases are few and far between of anything significant. Usually for something like this that has a backer/producer with the resources the size of Googl...

Re: Microsoft naming fails

Well, that didn't take long. It sounds like the actual name for the new system isn't Series X. It's Xbox with what type of machine being the Series X. So...the new Xbox is going to be called Xbox. Not to be confused with the 2001 Xbox... Holy cow, that came out a long time ago. Don't blink, next th...

Re: Best Game--Every Decade

Oh Gravey, I can't pick a single game for a whole decade... @_@

The 90s alone have WAY too many games to choose from, and even a breakdown by year would be a challenge... >_<;

Re: Microsoft naming fails

Question: is the Super Nintendo a good name? I’ve always felt like it was a natural progression, but looking back, it’s not very creative. Still, I can imagine my beloved console being called anything else. :) I wonder if “Super Wii” would have done better than “Wii U”? I get that it wasn’t really ...

Re: Microsoft naming fails

... and to make a post relevant to the topic, while I don't care for Microsoft's Xbox naming choices, I don't feel as if they're any worse than "Dreamcast" or "2DS XL." I even though "GameBoy" was a bit odd when I was younger, and just figured it was a play on "Wa...

Re: Microsoft naming fails

I love how marketing gets involved and they always tend to come up with the dumbest names possible. I get that they are trying to present some "larger" message but as stand alone names, they almost always stink. Code names for projects tend to be way cooler. A couple of my favorites were ...

Re: Microsoft naming fails

I always preferred the original Xbox's project name - DirectX Box.

Though I do have to admit that I love that Microsoft didn't put thought into how its systems were abbreviated... XB; XB360/X360; XBONE/XBONES/XBONEX
