    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.

    I'm a ways into Freedom Planet. I'm the one guy who waited until I could get a physical edition to play it. So far, the level design is great, the controls are...

    ^ That's just a head. Outside of a few closeups the bear was CG.

    Two movies I recently watched.

    Annihilation - The climactic scene is the worth the price of admission. Which is good because some other parts were really not great. For a minute it turns into a...

    A lot of people on both sides are putting too much stock into this. Population growth is not evenly distributed, and Latinos are especially not evenly distributed. This mainly impacts the Southwest,...

    It's seriously on my bucket list to someday acquire a sealed copy of an expensive game, and record a video of me opening it.

    I'd never heard of him until recently myself. In a nutshell, he's a blowhard with shitty opinions who got hired by The Atlantic to write shitty opinion pieces. But then he got fired after just a...

    It came out in Japan in December of 1997. It needn't take quite that long.



    No, not at all. Perhaps I should have responded to fewer things, to be clearer what my main point is. The only point...

    It's strange seeing so much hyperventilating over the Kevin Williamson thing. Or maybe I just need to get off the internet.

    That ad campaign was promoting software, not hardware. He just took out ads for some games they were releasing, they didn't really highlight the Saturn. A portion of it advertised Sega PC releases. A...

    Thanks for finding that old thread. But yeah, looking at that chart, the first three months of 1997 were bad, but April through November were so close to zero that the plot points are touching the...

    Yes, absolutely. It may even have been more than half of all Saturns sold in the US. So, after seeing what works, wouldn't you try to do something similar again? That is, if your objective was...

    It has changed in one major sense, though. In the late 2000s, 80s nostalgia was all the rage and the 70s stuff was over. Today in the late 2010s, 90s nostalgia is everywhere, but people also still...

    It's not difficult to not sell something if that's your intent. By constraining supply or distribution you can make sales dry up very fast. Don't get me wrong, there's no proof. We're not privy to...

    You're pointing out extremely low sales under Stolar as if that's not part of my point. Yes, sales were stagnant under Stolar, because he wasn't trying to sell the system. At no point was he making a...

    How could they effectively spend their resources on a console well before it existed? They didn't really. Game development isn't really the issue. Sega of America was not hard at work developing a...

    The Netlink didn't sell because it was supposed to be a competitor to WebTV, but WebTV itself was kind of a flop. Many had predicted that it would rapidly gain popularity and spur a whole new market...

    I've never been clear on how killing the Saturn so early was done in order to move on to the Dreamcast. There was basically a two year gap in between. I get that they'd had too many platforms and all...

    This doesn't prove anything, but it's worth noting that the print ads for the game noted all three versions, which suggests that they were released at the same time or close to it. Not true of the...

    I only really speak English. US education and culture don't encourage bilingualism if English is your first language. I know small amounts of Spanish, French, and Japanese, but not enough to have a...

    When Phantasy Star II was released, it came with a guide, which has maps of every dungeon. I don't know if that's also true in Japan, but the game plays better with the guide IMO. It feels like it...
