Re: Ever buy a console for one specific game?

Yeah, in the past that was my normal reason to buy a console. I'd wait until a triple A game came out that I'd really want and then jump in. Now, it's more of a wait and see approach. I think it probably started with the N64 for Shadows of the Empire. Heck, I bought the game even before the console...

Re: Games that are perfect examples of great design?

Wow! Yeah, the first Halo campaign is phenomenal! I highly recommend it. Play through it by yourself first and then try to do legendary on coop. There's a great bug that makes it far easier to go through.

They even remade it for the 360 which should make it easier to play.

That actually sounds pretty fun in a Max Payne sort of way.

Re: Games that are perfect examples of great design?

Shovel Knight - A fantastic combination o modern and classic platforming, and the levels and power-ups progress in a very good way. I'm talking about the original, Plague of Shadows was enjoyable too, just not so good as the original. There's a chapter on the making of Shovel Knight in the Blood, S...

Re: First CD versus vs First Streaming Consoles

Well, for streaming to be effective you need a fast connection. My little 40mb DSL connection won't cut it. If we can get 5G broadly available then we're talking.

If 5G lives up to half its hype we may have something. Although it's going to be years before it's innocuous enough everywhere.

Re: Game title screens AFTER first level

Voor, what specific examples are you thinking of? I could have sworn I saw this recently as well. But I personally don't think it makes a difference. I'm pretty sure I know what the game is because I A) started the game up or B) inserted it into the console. It feels a bit silly but that's just me.

Re: Games that are perfect examples of great design?

I'll throw out the first Halo. The level design could use some work on a few of the levels but overall they really nailed it. Similarly, you could only have two weapons at a time which made you think about that shiny rocket you saw laying there. Did you want to trade a machine gun for it and keep a ...

Re: 2019/6/18: Nintendo Switch: Sonic Team Racing

Sonic and All Starts Racing Transformed (Wii U, 2012) was and is the best kart reacer i've ever played. Slightly edging out MK8 for me. I suspected they had nowhere to go but down from there....this review confirms that suspicion. Sega has so much good IP that they just sit on....How about another ...

Re: Should Yooka-Laylee have the controversial icon or no?

do YouTubers not count They sure don't :D Why do they not count? It's a generational thing. I don't watch youtube videos and would have never even seen the stuff you posted about. Frankly, I don't care to spend my time watching talking heads about video games. I'd much rather play them myself if gi...
