Re: FIFA - thank you America

America could do this because a) we dont care about the fallout about 'soccer' b) we were probably pissed we did not have any more clout than the US Virgin Islands in voting and c) the US Justice Dept and the IRS need some good press. The whole thing is like some Mission Impossible episode (the good...

When do you buy your video games?

There are lots of questions about buying video games, but let's talk about the 'When'. (athough sometimes other things can influence the when, for instance, if your best bud is into game A, you may decide to buy it now full price even if you had originally planned on waiting until it went on sale). ...

Re: Farscape?

Farscape and Buck Rogers? Wait, Buck Rogers was about a hip contemporary Earth man tossed into a futuristic world, where he would heroically save the day with occasional shout outs to pop culture of his time, but in Farscape...wait...same thing. Wait, Buck Rogers love interest slash comrade in arms ...

Re: OK I admit it mobile gaming sucks

I've been a strong advocate of mobile gaming for some time. The touch screen interface suits RPG's, Point and click adventures and FMV perfectly and if you stick to games that suit the control scheme there is plenty of fun to be had. And that still holds true. HOWEVER ! I am in a similiar boat. I h...

Re: Walking Dead: Season One (PC)

I wonder which character you had issues with and if it's the same one I did? (His name starts with a "K") Wonder no more, same character. The one who really knows how to spread 'salt' in a wound, and not give a 'lick'. Some issues that annoyed me, and are not specific to the game, are thi...

Re: Walking Dead: Season One (PC)

Finished up Season 1. Whew. I will say this is game does linger in the brain during the nights. Very much like a Walking Dead story arc, with the focus on interactions between the living. The game play is mostly dialogue and QTEs, with the QTEs mostly being 'do or die and try again' model. Mild spoi...

Re: SuperHero TV

Interesting. Daredevil never clicked with me with the central conceit of the blindness / super senses thing. Marvel made a deliberate copy in Moon Knight, that I thought would have more potential. I will have to give Daredevil a go. One thing is of course, its Netflix, that releases entire seasons f...

38. Tecmo Super Bowl (NES 1991) http://www.consoleclassix.com/info_img/Tecmo_Super_Bowl_GEN_ScreenShot2.jpg I thought American Football should be a spot in here somewhere, and there were a few in the decade to choose from. I went with Tecmo Super Bowl on the NES, which sometimes makes lists of the v...
