    Two semi-obscure adventure games that I'm particularly fond of. Both are Western developed, but character-driven like the Japanese adventure games tend to be, but still with Western style interfaces...

    My impression for 25 years has been that everyone agrees True Motion is usually better. Not trying to argue technical details, but it's strange to see people claim otherwise.

    Motion aiming really isn't as good as infrared aiming like the Wii and Guncon 3 had. Unlikely that they'd make anything like that just for this game though. They might release a plastic joycon holder.

    This was a common complaint voiced about both versions of SMB Deluxe when it came out. The game sold less than expected due to bad word of mouth about the controls. Some reviews in the gaming press...

    Whenever I did see a Ridge Racer, Ridge Racer 2 (rare), or Rave Racer machine, they only had one machine in the place and there was never a wait. Often in the same arcade there'd be 4 (or 8, more...

    Weird example but okay. I don't "remember" Famitsu scores because I had no exposure to Famitsu reviews in 1996. At the time I was reading Next Gen and Game Fan, thumbing through other mags at the...

    That's pretty exaggerated. The pre-4 sequels weren't really that highly rated, as I recall. I could be misremembering. It is true that Daytona USA CCE was a disappointment, as was the lack of Super...

    I'm not trying to slag you, but I find this statement really odd. For one thing, it's a bit weird to say it's not about graphics but then emphasize precisely when it was first released and the...

    Sure, Ridge Racer had good, even exceptional graphics at the moment it was released, though that was mostly due to good timing. The controls also work okay, the AI isn't broken, and it's not riddled...

    I've never understood why people talk about Ridge Racer as if it were remotely interesting. I can't think of a more dull arcade racing game from the 90s than Ridge Racer 1.

    I don't know why these are the only two options. I don't think the Saturn could have realistically sold better than the PS1, but I do think it could've sold closer to N64 numbers and not been a...

    Looks like some stores have marked down the Stadia bundle to the price of the Chromecast Ultra by itself. The controller is also PC and Android compatible, so the Stadia bundle could be a worthwhile...

    I think of my game collection like an old-timey rich man's "private library". They didn't go through and read every book. They curated a selection of books that they might need or want, and kept them...

    Not exactly. You'd think 240p means 320 x 240, but it doesn't. 240p refers to the number of lines and can be any horizontal resolution. But even there it's a misnomer. Most older systems are...

    One kind-of advantage, or maybe disadvantage, for the PS2 is that its games generally benefit more from HD remasters. Dark Cloud 2 looks phenomenal in HD. I'm generally not impressed by HD remasters...

    Is it? My recollection from earlier discussions on this forum (and weird arguments with ABF) is that this turned out to be true for the Gamecube but not Xbox. IIRC, a close look at the numbers...

    With the possible exception of the PS5, PS2 is the only console ever to take the #1 spot from the previous console by the same company. The SNES didn't...

    Why? It didn't happen in any other generation. Was something incredibly special about the early 2000s?

    I think the issue is more economical than technical. Those little discs cost a tad more than DVDs. Not nearly as big a difference as cartridges, but significant enough at the margins, when the...

    How well does Galaxy control on the Switch? The Wii version didn't even support the Classic Controller.

    Hmm, he said it's not "Dreamcast 2". He didn't say it's not a game system. Game Gear 2!
