Maybe it's the D grade for Bloodborne.

Re: Soulja Boy is a smooth criminal!

Would he actually go to prison or just get sued by Nintendo? He'll probably just get sued and lose whatever money he made from selling these.

Re: Neo Geo (Non Fighters)

To each his own. I don’t like substance in my video games. I especially like reading the storylines with these 90’s action games. The Metal Slug story line is interesting to me. The two main characters Marco and Tarma are resistance fighters or something I can’t understand. They’re friends or somet...

Shinobi isn't easy at all. Maybe easy if you've played the heck out of it.

Re: Bad game names

It's always seemed straightforward to me: "Gaia" like the Greek goddess of the Earth, plus "res" pronounced either like the first part of "rest" or (more naturally) the first syllable of "resident". Maybe they were trying for a "Gaia" + "Ares&q...

I own the original cart and case. That's sufficient proof for me that it exists. :)

I've always pronounced the name like "guy-res" or "guy-ris."

Re: Neo Geo (Non Fighters)

Shock Troopers is a cool MERCS clone. Last Resort is a fun horizontal shmup.

Neo Geo did have the best graphics, but graphics aren't everything. I'll take the best SNES games such as Super Metroid, Super Punch-Out, Secret of Mana and DKC over the Neo Geo library any day.

Re: Bad game names

Little Samson (NES) - The name probably hurt sales because people were expecting a lousy religious game. Xexyz (NES) Sagaia (Genesis) - They could have just gone with Darius rather than changing the title to this. Name This Game (Atari 2600) Spanky's Quest (SNES) - The main character is "Spanky...

Re: Sony Playstation Classic, $99 US, 12/3

The SNES Classic runs PlayStation games better than the PlayStation Classic. http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2018/12/video_snes_classic_runs_psone_games_better_than_the_playstation_classic "The summary is, Sony designed a system that can "barely" play its own games. In contrast, the...
