Re: Yooka-Laylee - A 3D Platformer Rare-vival!

And I only liked Banjo Kazooie when I was a lot younger. And that was probably only because the N64 put out like 10 games a year back then. Is there some law against putting out advanced 2d games I don't know about?

Re: Yooka-Laylee - A 3D Platformer Rare-vival!

Banjo Kazooie was right on the edge of, how should I say this, cheesiness for me, but I let myself go and it was fun. This is the most ridiculous, wimpy crap I've ever seen. So skilled programmers can go rogue and put this much effort into 3d platforming type game that's been pounded into the ground...

Re: 2015/4/24: Jaguar: NBA Jam Tournament Edition

Maybe they made the heads big because the players are smaller than other versions. Maybe with normal sized heads they would've looked too small. I don't like it either, would rather it stay as a secret code. But, I like that the players are smaller and that should open up the court space. I had 2 gr...

Re: Why did the NES do so well in the US

I totally agree. A lot of games from the old days have almost a limitless replay value that keeps you coming back to them. I always keep coming back to SMB 1-3 and all sorts of other NES games. There's Neo Geo games that I've spent months playing and I'll always come back to. SMB is one of those gam...

Re: Why did the NES do so well in the US

The nationwide release was September 1986. In early '86 it was in only big cities. So, I think the 1 million sales figure (for '86)actually is impressive and probably showed that it was already on course to be successful. And I don't think it even was available in all stores until the end of the yea...

Re: Why did the NES do so well in the US

Also I think the launch titles, while not overwhelming, did the job of helping it become popular before the big mid to late 1987 titles came. Excite Bike was probably the best, and was popular. Then you had 10 Yard Fight, which I kind of liked, I know it's gotten abysmal reviews but I thought it was...

Re: NFL Blitz (N64)

I've only played the N64 version, but I've heard the N64 version looks better, which is hardly shocking considering how ugly the PS1's graphics can be. Add in no load times and how poor the PS1 has aged, and I'd think this is probably the best version. Also, it fills a void in the N64 library.

Re: Why did the NES do so well in the US

But it wasn't just Super Mario Bros. Again, by the time it got a proper release, you also had Zelda. And literally a couple months later is when a ton of good games came out.

Re: Legacy PC/Mac gaming

I've been getting nostalgic about the old days of PC gaming. I miss the old Front Page Sports Football games and how amazing they were as well. I think those were the first games ever to have a dynasty mode. And NHL Hockey, which was released in 1993, was the computer port to NHL 94, but it had a lo...

Re: Where are all the games?

I've noticed it too and I think it's the downloads. And less companies are making games.. How can a lot of companies make games these days? Every single game apparently needs to be so realistic that it just costs so much. It's a joke. It's like the PS1 "rule" of no 2d games the rule now is...
