The Internet and the Democratization of Media

when the Internet hit the big time, there was talk about how it would break down silos - not just on information, but for commerce and creative output. For instance, no need for big Record Labels or the the big Book Publishers, the internet would be the direct tube from creator to consumer. Anyone c...

Re: No Split Screen in Halo 5

You're funny. I think the Hitler comparison probably did it, although asking about a bonus probably ruffled a feather or three.

Poll - Hours playing video games last week

Thought I would experiment with the Poll option. This just asks how many hours did you game last week. Include any type of gaming - whether on mobile or home, for a review or for fun. The question is not asking about some typical week, but last week in particular. Use your memory. If you can only re...

Re: Favorite sitcoms

Newhart I Love Lucy The Andy Griffith Show The Flintstones M*A*S*H Great list. I Love Lucy is foundational (although inspired by the radio sitcoms) and shows an urban America of the pre white flight fifties, and nicely amplified with guest stars.. Newhart has a tremendous supporting cast and a soft...

Re: I feel the GameCube is vastly overrated.

Maybe it's nostalgia Maybe, but it could also be sticking up for the underdog. Sony lorded it that gen, and MS is never seen as an underdog even when they are. Fans of the Dreamcast and the Gamecube may just want some respect. During a generation, console wars make giving a rival some credit diffic...

Re: 3DS Is Becoming Virtual Boy 2

It's so interesting to think that just a few short years ago, many people were predicting the 3DS to be a failure due to a slow start...But eventually, the 3DS started to pick up steam and now has a great library of quality titles. And people predicting its death were wrong, as Nintendo is yet agai...

Re: 3DS Is Becoming Virtual Boy 2

I think things are looking dire for Nintendo on all fronts, but especially the 3DS.  Like many gamers I was intrigued with it at first, but it has been sitting on my shelf lately.  The main problem is that the 3D mania in general is quickly winding down.  Heck, some people are even avoiding 3D in t...

Re: Strange opinion: I think Smartphones are a bad invention.

Sorry if I pissed you guys off. No no no. We are going to take away your membership card in the Grump Club if you keep doing that. An observation stemming from that Rob Zombie quote about how growing up in the 60s, 70s and into the 80s was (unintentionally) immersion into earlier generations. Early...

Re: 2015/7/19: Atari 2600: I Want My Mommy, Star Wars: Ewok Adventure, Backfire

Fun reviews. If you bad saved Ewoks for April 1st, I would have thought you were kidding. Really sounds pretty good. Backfire also looks like a solid 2nd gen game....maybe Friendly Fire would be a good name if there is ever a 2 player mode. If Teddie can't jump in I Want My Mommy, then is platformer...

Re: Strange opinion: I think Smartphones are a bad invention.

Do something even remotely out of the usual and people will film you...one instance really ticked me off. there was a lady, probably in her 20's, filming me when I was getting a few of my firearms out of my car. Being filmed whenever something happens that's my business, and not theirs, really irri...
