Re: Konami planing a TurboGrafx-16 Mini!

Rather late, but here goes nothing. What? No Rondo for US Version? I am really looking forward to this mini console. I never had a TG-16 and every title I have played has been via emulation. It does come with Rondo your mistaken. That is awesome. Any ideas when PreOrders are going to happen? I near...

Re: Konami planing a TurboGrafx-16 Mini!

I was so excited when I saw Snatcher.....but when I saw that it was a Japanese import, I got bummed. Without being able to read a lick of Japanese, games of that ilk are basically worthless to me. Man, I was really hoping to finally get the chance to play Snatcher! I'll my eat my hat if there's not...

Re: 2019/7/14: Wii U: Rodea the Sky Soldier, Shovel Knight

I'm pretty sure there was only a single run of the game, hence, early copies have it. It didn't exactly sell all that well with its negative reviews. So there are plenty available.

Re: Konami planing a TurboGrafx-16 Mini!

What? No Rondo for US Version? I am really looking forward to this mini console. I never had a TG-16 and every title I have played has been via emulation. They each come with both sets of games. You'll get roughly 50 games in total. It's a unique solution to providing top games from both countries....

There's a lot of this in movies, music and books so it must exist to some degree in video games.


Ha! Pretty much every Call of Duty or Madden game ever made.

Re: Most polarizing video games and why?

Back on thread - A polarizing video game that I recently enjoyed was Zelda Majora's Mask. I was never the biggest fan of this Zelda game in the day (the time mechanic was annoying / borderline unfair). But this game does have a large following - two schools of thought - either one of the worst Zeld...

Re: Stadia FAQ

The other huge point to this is that Google is in front of the money. That's HUGE. As a result, a number of the middle men from the retail side goes away completely. There's no warehousing or store involved. And if they can keep the price at $60 then a good chunck of that stays with Google. The pote...

Re: Stadia FAQ

From the company’s perspective, why do they want control over the games? What’s the difference (to them) whether you spend $250 a year on physical games or $250 a year on a streaming service? Subscription revenues typically have a higher valuation. It's a recurring revenue stream typically with muc...

That guy is a grade A idiot. Guns are perfectly legal. He clearly has a few screws loose. Sorry, man.

Re: Most polarizing video games and why?

Dead or Alive Series -> Deeper than you think for this fighter. Main source of controversy is the in game content and depiction of female characters. A work collegue found out I had this game in my library (he was around my house and was snooping around). He was furious - he mentioned it to me and ...
