    There are ways to do that (photogrammetry, laser scanning), but most would result in a "noisy" 3D model that has an excessively dense, messy mesh. It would be preferable to just create a clean 3D...

    But isn't the only "problem" that each person's individual tastes are not being specifically catered to? Imagine any other art style were chosen for this game. Then if you and your group of friends...

    At this point in the history of video games, just about any visual aesthetic can be achieved. Yet no matter what stylistic choice a developer makes, there will always be people who dislike it....

    Have you got some sort of hate-boner for Yuji Naka, Joe? His peers regard him as a highly skilled programmer, so I guess we just have to weigh that against the opinions of the Youtuber community of...

    Yes, mine came with both the manual and warranty card in a plastic bag. I must say, I feel the Sports Pad is underrated to say the least. Although the analog games that were designed for it (like...

    I really don't like this kind of "hit piece" review. The reviewer admits they could barely get anywhere in the game, and that they consider the majority of the SMS North American library to be a "sea...

    It's a good game that a lot of love and attention of detail were put into, but unfortunately I think the "2" designation detracts from it. As he was developing it and discussing it on Sega 8-bit,...
