Re: Why the WII-U is now my 'go to' console.

Believe it or not, I have my Wii U hooked up to a CRT, even though it's more than capable of stunning HD. Hey, old habits die hard! How's that work out for you? I've had mine hooked up via component to my Trinitron before and it seemed like the overscan was pretty bad with a lot of stuff cut off th...

Re: Life Is Strange Before the Storm install issues

Thought there'd be some discussion on this topic. Are others around here okay with these mandatory installations on PS4/XB1 and the disappearance of being able to play a game directly off a disc? I personally haven't found them overly burdensome on my PS4, although I'd obviously share the Critic's a...

Re: Peculiar gaming habits

I noticed that years ago back in college. Was somewhat losing interest in watching NASCAR on tv, not a fan of the tv networks at the time or the way the sport was evolving. But while I'd be regularly missing races when I had the time to watch, just give me a race on Sunday afternoon when there was s...

Re: Life Is Strange Before the Storm install issues

Sounds more like the developers screwed up rather then a fault with how the PS4 operates. And sadly, there's not a chance of it disappearing with the PS5. They can't stream data off a 100 GB UHD Blu-Ray fast enough for data intensive modern games. Even HDD's are getting to be viewed as too slow to c...

Re: Mega drive flicker means busted cartridge?

Unlikely.

What sort if display are you playing on? Sounds more like they're doing something strange with their resolution or refresh rate that your television doesn't like.

Could you try a different tv?

Re: 2019/8/17: Xbox: Outrun 2, Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast

You're somewhat constrained now since Xbox Live is dead. The online leaderboards back when this title was younger added a ton of replayability to the standard single player arcade mode. I don't know about everyone else, but working to top my own score is a bit of a hollow victory. But being able to ...

Re: 3D Streets of Rage 2 (3DS eshop)

Like Snakeboy mentions, Japan got three retail volumes with all of this stuff (Except for their enhanced port of Power Drift that they went back to after volume 2 was released with the standard version of Power Drift, and added some brand new content to it based off other Sega properties). My bigges...

Re: 2019/9/22: Nintendo Switch: Horizon Chase Turbo, Dragon's Lair Trilogy

Great game in my opinion. But everyone's taste is different, so it's good in a way to see a diverging opinion out there on this game when it's largely garnered praise from those that have played it. I did find the review just a bit contradictory though with the complaints about how the game is too e...

Re: Horizon Chase (Switch)

Final Freeway has a nice aesthetic, but no difficulty. It's an extremely easy game which should never be the case for an arcade racer.

Sounds like the Critic didn't like Horizon Chase, but I'm loving it so far after 3 or 4 hours.

Re: Horizon Chase (Switch)

A game it very much is like and takes the majority of its inspiration from is a great sprite scaling racer on the Super Nintendo called Top Gear (No relation to the tv show). The Horizon Chase developers even hired the same music composer as that Super Nintendo game. I just bought this on the PS4 an...
