Re: Your Dream Game?

An ultra realistic PC racing simulator modeling the 1980 NASCAR Winston Cup season. This season stands out for a variety of reasons. It was the last season where classic full size American vehicles were still eligible for competition, with the series adapting the more slimmed down cars the following...

Re: Sega 3D Classics Collection

By quality over quantity, I wasn't referring to the original source material, but rather the job that the compilation developer has done to represent the originals. M2 is easily unrivaled in this regard and the new Mega Man collection from the reborn Digital Eclipse studio is very far from perfectio...

This collection is the very definition of quality over quantity. I think most fans if they see the TLC that went into these conversions would gladly always accept the small game count in exchange for the effort evident in these conversions.

Blue Max was set in WWI, not WWII. Doesn't make the math work out any more realistically though.

Re: SNES on 3DS: Not All That

All emulation isn't created equal. Many a homebrew emulator is far from perfect and while able to seemingly run some games perfectly, can easily show its flaws with others. Nintendo seeks out quality emulation that can run 99% of the library with no issues like frame skipping, with little worry tha...

Re: SNES on 3DS: Not All That

I disagree. About what? While personally unexcited over the news since I got a great deal on a new regular 3DS XL last year and it's always played within range of my Wii U with its Virtual Console games at the ready, I don't understand your objection. While the original hardware will never be super...

Re: SNES on 3DS: Not All That

Other than a lack of cross-buy with the Wii U, I don't see any specific issues here. The price point matches that of the Wii and Wii U and while I'd argue that $5 would be more appropriate, it's simply matching their existing standards. And quality SuperNes emulation requires a fair bit of resources...

Re: Sega 3D Classics Collection

I just stumbled upon this on Amazon and I wonder if it would be worthwhile: http://www.amazon.com/SEGA-3D-Classics-Collection-Nintendo-3DS/dp/B01B1KEERW/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1457310257&sr=8-1&keywords=3ds+sega It kind of bothers me there are only 9 games (counting the ...

Re: Sega 3D Classics Collection

Read some of the developer interviews that were done for almost every one of their conversions, which are all available at this site that I've linked below. Here's a sample for Galaxy Force II, one of their more challenging endeavors. http://blogs.sega.com/2013/12/12/sega-3d-classics-%E2%80%93-galax...

Re: 2016/3/2: Super Nintendo: Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Revolution X

I'm afraid that I gave it an A+ after reading this earlier, just for a laugh since the divide was so great. Not exactly respecting the spirit of the entire deal since I never even played this one and it seems all but certain that I wouldn't think highly of it if I did, so you can remove at least one...
