Re: Mega Man 11 looks amazing!

Also what do you think of the $30 price tag for Mega Man 11 and how does Mega Man 11 visually fair compare to the final version of Mighty No. 9 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YngbHOz--oc. You can tell that Mega Man 11 looks more like a current gen game where Mighty No. 9 looks like a bad bargain b...

Re: Mega Man 11 looks amazing!

Looks good - I kinda wish they'd gone with the fully-animated Shantae/Skullgirls look, but this style of 3d has almost as much character and personality so I'm okay with it. Looks challenging, they've come up with some new wrinkles in the gameplay but it's still old-school. Even the voice-acting is ...

Re: Arcade stick for the Switch?

$150 is pretty much what you'd expect to pay for a good arcade stick. Back when I played fighting games on a regular basis I had a Hori Soul Calibur V arcade stick for the 360 and it was top-notch. Also, unlike some cheaper sticks where everything is glued in place, the buttons and joystick are made...

Re: Neo Geo (Simple games)

This is a reflection of modern game thinking, which is that the whole point is "getting to the end". In the old school, playing the game is a joy it of itself. That's why we can play old games over and over, indefinitely. And it's not just about seeing everything a game has to offer, it's...

Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon (8-bit Castlevania III-style game)

I knew about Koji Igarashi's wildly successful Kickstarter for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night - an opportunity for him to make a new game in the style of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. What I didn't know was that one of the stretch goals was for an 8-bit game in the style of Castlevania III ...

Re: How to break a game

It's been a long time (so I'm a little fuzzy with specifics) but I remember accidentally breaking Crystalis for the NES. I was in the final fortress on Earth (of course you end up going to space for the finale) and I beat a mini-boss. This caused a hole in the floor to open up. I'd already beaten th...

Re: my wild guess for new smash bros characters

I don't know if the series is popular enough for her to get in or not, but I think Shantae would be a great choice. The colorful, simplified art style fits with the Nintendo aesthetic and would help her stand out in busier stages, the mix of magic and animal transformations give her a unique power-s...

Re: Favorite Albums of the 90s

I'll go as far as to say music's sucked since the 90's. But I won't put that whole decade on a pedestal. The last half of the 90's sucked. There were basically no great rock albums released after 1995, and rock declined to the point that it became a joke. Rock from '96-'99 is a joke. Can't agree at...

Re: Favorite Albums of the 90s

Let's start this off with mine. *List of awesome bands and also Sublime* Yes I know it's a lot. Thoughts? My list is going to be pretty similar to Retrology so I did a bit of copypasta. Also, this list is too long - sorry: Soundgarden - Badmotorfinger & Superunknown Kyuss - Blues for the Red Su...

Re: Ready 2 Rumble Boxing (N64)

Yeah things have changed a LOT. You have to wonder if that game was released now if it would be banned and pulled from the shelves. I don't hear any real uproar about women being in fighting games (apart from some complaints about the skimpiness of some of their outfits). You can graphically tear f...
