    I don't think that's really in question. Dreamcast has a clear advantage in texturing. The PS2 games that play to the system's strengths, and clearly go beyond what the Dreamcast can do (e.g. Ratchet...

    That's a whole can of worms, but I don't think taking them down is necessarily a big fuss. Statues get taken down all the time. The big fuss in Virginia was caused by a state law preempting local...

    The British did a lot of good for Hong Kong while they controlled it. No doubt about that. But Hong Kong is only in this position today because Thatcher negotiated directly with Deng Xiaoping without...

    I wasn't asking your opinion of Gandhi as a person (and he's no saint). I was asking if Clement Attlee was wrong to grant independence to India. Should Britain still be controlling India today?

    What exactly is your contention here? Are you pro-colonialism? Was Attlee wrong to give in to Gandhi? Do you believe colonialism had nothing at all to do with racism??

    A better comparison might be Psyvariar 2. Or, Border Down (2003) and Trizeal (2005), one year off is close enough.

    I'm not sure why you're even looking at Chaos Field. My recollection from 2004 is that game was considered totally unimpressive, even among the small core of Dreamcast weebs who were hungry for every...

    Yeah but that goes beyond Kojima. God help the poor sap who gives a Zelda game 8 out of 10.

    If anything a better comparison would be Sega CD. There are many CD32 games with CD audio, voice acting, and extended cutscenes that wouldn't work on the SNES. CD32 has a more powerful CPU than...

    Yeah this is where it gets thorny, but generally I expect computers to precede fairly equivalent consoles by a few years. If the Mega Drive were a computer it would have come out in 1985 next to the...

    The 2600jr was supposed to come out along with the 7800 in 1984. The story I've consistently heard from Atari people is that Jack Tramiel put them on hold when he took over because Tramiel himself,...

    That's mostly true, but the way the vote actually went in 2016 wasn't very dramatic. Turnout was down and there weren't any huge swings. In some ways 2016 just looks like 2012 with less turnout....

    Personally I think of the Master System as an upgrade of the SG-1000/Colecovision within the same generation. It has a better VDP, but the same CPU. Sort of like the Supergrafx.

    Atari is weird but...

    There's plenty of room for them to increase their margins without winning a majority of black or Latino voters. Trump only got 29% of the Latino vote in 2016, but in 2004 Bush got 44%. That's why...

    The original MSX line is very similar in capabilities to the Colecovision, including the lack of smooth hardware scrolling. It was pretty well-supported in the mid-80s, especially in Japan. Looking...

    What I said had nothing to do with "the hypocrisy of the democrats". Changing the subject to bash people you don't like is a shitty rhetorical crutch, not honest discussion.

    There's a few reasons for that. Coleco was really focused on arcade ports because they felt that was the best angle to get people to upgrade from the 2600. In late 1982 and 1983, more people were...

    Sure the character design isn't nearly as bad, but I'm still not terribly interested in seeing Sonic "crash into the real world" and become some dudebro's E.T. buddy.

    The Wii wasn't very powerful, but it was still new hardware in 2006. Its constituent parts aren't literally from 2001, they're contemporary to 2006, just on the low end. That may sound like splitting...

    Randomly bashing the Democrats is a standard response to the indefensible. It's not a defense. I'm not here to convince anyone what's in Democrats' heads. Like I give a shit. Giving a "god damned"...

    I've never seen how the Colecovision/5200 is supposed to be in the same generation as the 2600. But considering that the underlying technology in game consoles never stopped marching on, a "lost...

    I thought the Xbox was green in a tribute to Mountain Dew, nectar of the gamers.

    The reason they've kept using the name Xbox is simply because they don't want to use "Microsoft" as a brand name. And when they made their first console, they didn't bother to make up two names, one...

    Because trolling is exactly what we want in a president?

    It would be nice if he would stop "trolling" the Kurds.
