Re: PS4 and Xbox One remote play

Yeah, all connection issues and more lag. I wanted to play MLB: The Show outside on a nice day. It's hard enough to hit a 98 mph fastball with minimal lag, now you play over a network, and forget it.

Re: Gaming at night (and headphones)

If you're playing pre-HDMI games, you can simply buy an adapter to convert RCA into a headphone jack. Only issue is, there is no volume control, but the volume you do get tends to be ideal. I work from home making sales calls, and I like to play video games with my earbuds under my headset. My boss ...

Re: Cats and patches

Bad enough that games get to deal with this. Release a flawed game, then you have to download a million patches. Now movies are doing this too.

Kung Fu (NES)

Had this been 1985, I'd probably be in bed right now because it's quarter to 3 in the morning, and most 4 year olds are asleep at such time. I'm not watching the Bears this weekend because their win in the Silverdome last Sunday put them at 15-1, and so I wouldn't be watching them during the Wild Ca...

Re: Christmas Loot 2019

Last year my wife got me Smash Bros for Switch and Ghostbusters for Sega Master System. This year we're a little squeezed for cash, but I did get NBA 2K20.

Re: Best Game--Every Decade

1970s- living life because very few games keep my interest for longer than ten minutes. Not that I was even born yet.
1980s- Legend of Zelda
1990s- Ocarina of Time
2000s- Madden 05
2010s- MLB 12: The Show
