Re: Should nintendo drop the gimmicks?

Nintendo's biggest problem isn't hardware gimmicks or sequel fatigue. Their biggest problem is meeting demand for their systems. I've never seen a company behave the way they do. It seems they're more concerned about lining the pockets of resellers than they are with respecting their customers. Inst...

Re: Most valuable game?

I have about 12 or so games for the PS1 that are worth over $100 including Suikoden II, R-Type Delta, Valkyrie Profile, Tales of Destiny, Tales of Destiny II and a few others. My copy of Team Buddies would probably go for around $210 or so. But my most rare/expensive PS1 game would be Misadventures ...

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

Agree with mbd36 and pt on the PS1's visuals. Of course the 3D polygons haven't aged well for the most part. They're over 20 years old and it was a very ugly but necessary step to bring gaming into the 3rd dimension. But Saturn and yes, even the N64 have incredibly ugly 3D games, too. The Saturn was...

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

Wow! NES the most overrated?! CONTROVERSY!! Ha ha. @CaptainCruch - Agree with you that the Wii is underrated. After the hype died down most gamers saw shovelware and a small handful of first party titles. Truth is there are a ton of hidden gems. With apologies to the GameCube and Wii U, the Wii migh...

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

I figured I'd be taken to task over my claim of N64 as most overrated. You guys had some great points and I'm happy to hear it's Voor's favorite system. I like hearing differing opinions and im happy so many people found so much to love about a system I really don't care for. @PT - I'd say I half ag...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

Nintendo has proven many times over that they purposefully underproduce their products. Seeing $250 NES Classics didn't make me angry at the resellers. It made me angry with Nintendo. I want to give you my $60, Nintendo. Why won't you take it? The official word is they are going to make "substa...

Re: Have you ever bought a reproduction?

Atariboy wrote: Does this reproduction require some trickery like a mod chip or disc swap like in the old days, or is the Saturn cracked well enough where reproductions boot on factory hardware? Good question. It's something called Pseudo Saturn. You flash an Action Replay cart and as long as the c...

Have you ever bought a reproduction?

So, just bought a reproduction of the Sega Saturn holy grail, Panzer Dragoon Saga. If I had gotten into Saturn collecting years ago, I would have been more than willing to drop $250 on this RPG. But it's now $700 regularly on eBay and I've seen it sell for as much as $1000. There's holy grail and th...

Re: Physical Release Thread

I'm not a PC gamer at all. When Sony revealed before their conference proper that Undertale was coming to PS4 and Vita in physical form, I was beside myself with happiness! I've been wanting to play this one for over 2 years. I cannot wait! For those who like indie games but like physical releases, ...
