Re: Christmas Loot 2019

I only got 1 video game related item this year, Sniper V2 for the Xbox 360, recently mentioned/pimped by matmico399. It sounded like the game of game I could really enjoy, and I think I was able to find it on Ebay for only like $10 so worth a shot. Of course Steam is having their winter sale current...

Re: Microsoft naming fails

The important thing is that Microsoft keeps making their exclusives available to Game Pass for PC. I've been playing Xbox-related content nearly for free for the past 4 years just by accumulating Bing points and spending them on Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass subscriptions. Color me intrigued - ...

Re: Games with sections that almost ruin it

Half Life, the original game. What was a fantastic, immersive FPS with nail-biting action sequences suddenly reduces itself to a ridiculous platform jumper for no reason at the end of the game. As you try to get to the world of Xen (the endgame location), you suddenly have to jump from asteroid to a...

Re: NFL Football

As a Steelers fan, it pains me to say this, but Lamar Jackson all the way, with only Russel Wilson in contention. I so wanted the Steelers to trade up for him in the draft, feeling confident that he was undervalued, and then to my horror, the Ravens snatched him! Worked out pretty well for them whe...

Re: The Mandalorian

It's a welcome change from people breaking their spines trying to figure out a reason why Rey can't lift boulders if she's chosen by the force and has absolute faith in what it can achieve. "She's making Luke look bad when he just whined instead!" <--- the real reason, along with "Th...

Re: Amazon Links

Wow, that SUCKS! And just before the Holiday season too. I always kept an Amazon tab up from your site all year round, so no matter what I was buying you'd always get a cut. Cheap jerks.

Ouch.

Re: NFL Football

As a Steeler fan and with us being a full 2 games behind the Ravens in the AFC North, it killed me to have to root for them the week before last when they were playing the Patriots, but I had to... because they were playing the Patriots. It was through clenched teeth that I had to root them on, and ...

Re: 2019/11/12: Commodore 64: Seven Cities of Gold, The, Gunship!

Is it just a coincidence these two games use the exact same color palette?? That didn't necessarily occur to me, but it was pretty clear to me that Seven Cities looked, felt, and sounded a LOT like Pirates! by Sid Meier. He didn't have anything to do with this game, but I'm assuming that EA must ha...

Re: Book Review: Video Games in The Netherlands

Question: was the drink at arms length any variety of General Foods International Coffee? And if so, did it give you a nice warm feeling - like old songs and special friends? gfic.jpg Totally true about the German aversion to certain things in video games; when I moved to Bavaria back in 1993 I invi...
