Re: Last Blockbuster in America

Thoughts? It was just straight-up a superior experience. Not just Blockbuster, but local video rental stores like Premiere Video in Dallas or Black Lodge Video in Memphis, TN, which are both now sadly closed. The endless options on Netflix are great, but the personal feel of getting recommendations...

Re: 2019/3/20: Nintendo 64: Super Mario 64, Namco Museum 64

I believe SM64 is great game. Perhaps I remember it more fondly because I did play it in ‘96. Strange, I really like the graphics in this game. The problem is it just rubs me the wrong way thinking about how jacked up I was about the N64 after playing SM64, which when evaluated as a launch title, h...

Re: 2019/3/20: Nintendo 64: Super Mario 64, Namco Museum 64

I'm gonna have to differ with you on this one Critic. SM64 is a sublime game and should certainly rank an A+ on the 64, which is comparatively starved for titles of its caliber. I've always thought your Ocarina of Time review to be astonishingly low as well - and let's not talk about your MM review ...

Re: Google Stadia aka the most anti Video Game Critic console ever!

Funny how their slogan is "a gaming platform for everyone" when the U.S. specifically has such bad internet availability throughout vast sections of the country that accessing a service like this would be impossible for many, many people.

Re: Game store moral dilemma

Buy, play, and resell. :D It's only a 20 hour game, and mostly linear (i.e., not much side-questing to do), so it's manageable to finish quickly. You could have it in and out within a month. I actually prefer PDS over any of the Final Fantasy RPGs - it's my favorite RPG that I've ever played. Anyon...

Re: Game store moral dilemma

Actually, the shopkeeper was SUPER cool about it and when I apologized even said "I'd have done the same thing to be honest." When he said this, did he clench his teeth really hard, and could you see a large vein in his forehead begin to pulsate? Haha! No, he seemed genuinely cool about i...

Re: Game store moral dilemma

Good for you for telling her about the Saturn games. I know you wanted to tell her about the game boy ones, but maybe she got good money for them from the shop, and the shopkeeper might make a nice profit from them. So, it all works out, she's happy that she could make a fortune from the Saturn gam...

Game store moral dilemma

I was at a retro game store in Portland yesterday and while my girlfriend and I were browsing, a woman entered with three boxes of games and consoles to trade in. The friendly staff assisted her in unloading her wares onto the countertop. What I saw made me speechless - stacks and stacks of factory ...

Re: Anthem bug POWERING DOWN PS4s

It's become almost an echo chamber at this point, but nevertheless it's hard to resist the opportunity to dogpile on EA. BioWare was a great company and some of their titles are among the best role-playing games ever made. Having acquired them years back, EA has gradually chipped away at what made t...
