NBA Jam (SNES)

I'll never forget the first time I saw this game. We were at a train station in Seattle, having just arrived from Portland. My dad knew how big of a Drexler fan I was, so he made sure to add Portland to our summer trip itinerary. In all honesty, there were a lot of drug addicts, and it seemed quite ...

Re: Most frightening movie moments for you

Great topic! I wholeheartedly agree with the feelings for that same scene in The Day After. The whole flick is a pretty tough watch, but yeah, that scene in particular is haaaaarsh. Don't blame you at all for pausing the tape, Herschie. After the movie, I wanted to watch Family Guy to calm my nerve...

Re: My Latest Project

My wife and I refer to this as the VGR, which of course stands for video game room. We have a 3 bedroom house on the far northwest side of Chicago, so she gets everything but one room. I have my 4K and CRT in there, along with all of my systems. It's a nice room to come home to and forget about how ...

Re: Most frightening movie moments for you

Titanic, when Astor is standing by the pole in the grand staircase, and all the sudden the dome shatters. The Day After when Denise Dahlberg is on her deathbed, hair falling out, dying of radiation sickness. I needed to pause the movie and clear my head. Saving Private Ryan, when the guy is on the b...

Re: Will you miss Game Stop

I thought I'd miss Game Informer, but to tell you the truth, I usually just take a quick glance at it and then never read them again.

Re: PS1 Suggestions

Thanks for the suggestions. Metal Gear Solid arrived today. Since I'm working again and don't have as much time to play, I'm going to buy others once I complete this and work my way down the list. There's something charming about N64/PS1 graphics. For some reason there were a bunch of Burger King co...

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation (PS1)

Could this be the PS1 adventure game that I've been craving? No, it's not. The controls themselves are wonky, and the control scheme is way too complicated. Maybe I was really spoiled by Zelda, but I finally gave up after trying for the 24th time to swing across a pit in the tutorial stage. It's too...

Re: PS1 Suggestions

Not many good pure adventure games come to mind on PS1, but a few games in similar genres that might scratch the itch are Metal Gear Solid, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, or Final Fantasy VII. They’re each all time classics and still hold up today. Silent Hill, Parasite Eve, or a Resident Evil...

Re: Looking for a middle person based in the U.S

Thanks to Herschie being willing to act as a middle person for it, I will soon have a manual and thus complete copy of Shanghai Triple threat for 3DO. Thank you Herschie. No problem! Yeah I appreciate your understanding that I'm taking my own time to do this, so you never pressed me on anything. Be...
