  1. I apologize for any hurt feelings I may have caused. In many ways I feel my statements regarding the chat situation were justified, but it's not like me to engage in that kind of negativity. Time to move forward.

  2. Looks amazing. Nice work.
  3. I've heard it has a lot of RPG elements, with leveling up of different abilities and different weapons/armor/etc. However, it's obvoiusly a work in progress, so who knows.
  4. I still don't have any convincing reason to play my XB1. PS4 for the win. But Wii U is comparable, especially with the Virtual Console.
  5. I have a modded genny controller and it's very usable. I don't hate the CV controller though.
  6. I haven't used mine much but it was working fine when I used it; first run.
  7. Do an aileron roll!

      Not nearly as catchy. :P

  8. Is anyone else particularly interested in E3 this year? Looks like a lot of exciting announcements have aleady been made, and with Morpheus likely getting big-time attention and XB1 supposedly presenting their strongest first party lineup in years, it should be quite the occasion. Even PC has its own conference this year. Shame about Nintendo keeping mum about Zelda and NX, though; here's hoping Starfox and whatever else they show is/are incredible...

      E3 is still relevant?

    3. DoctorTom


      Only to people who find the videogame industry relevant.

      I can see there is NOT much interest. lol

  9. Just updating to try to get that crude 7-11 story off the page. :)

  10. The 8 bit version is really good, and the SNES version is incredible, but I prefer the music on the CV version, which actually is the music from the arcade PROTOTYPE, rather than the released arcade game. As much as I love the 2600, I personally feel that version doesn't hold a candle to the one on CV, like most (all?) games shared on those platforms.
  11. I think PS4 will surpass Wii U as my fave new gen console within the next 12 months. Xbone has been a waste of a gaming machine for me. Nice streaming device though.
  12. Great news, Opcode. I trust DKA will be the first release.
  13. Modern, and here's why...I played the 2600, CV, NES, SNES, etc., when they were modern. And if you had given me in 1980 a glimpse into the future of a game like Demon's Souls, when I was playing (and loving) Adventure on the 2600, I would have absolutely flipped at how awesome gaming would be down the road -- and Adventure would have then seemed lame in comparison. I love retro titles, largely for nostalgia, sometimes for rock solid old fashioned gameplay. But I'm a modern gaming guy, bottom line.
  14. Just about to wrap up The Unfinished Swan, a PS3 exclusive. Absolutely stellar. If you have PS Plus this month, you must grab this free game. If not, it's worth every penny of the $15 price.

      Unfinished Swan gives me horrible motion sickness. Easy to try it for free if you have PS+ but if you've ever had motion sickness from games you may want to try the demo before buying.

    2. DoctorTom


      That's true of any first person game, though. For what it's worth, I have motion sickness on occasion, and this one didn't bother me at all. Changing the camera speed helps a lot, btw.

  15. Saw the Avengers. Highly mediocre. Superhero movies have been trending downhill for some time now.

    1. xucaen


      I think the thing with the Avengers films is that they a are shook interdependent. If you mids any if then, the rest aren't as meaningful.

    2. DoctorTom


      I saw them all. Still pretty lousy.

  16. The Unfinished Swan and Race the Sun are both excellent PS Plus free games this month. Be sure to check them out.

  17. I haven't played it in ages, but I did beat the game. As for the cages, honestly I don't remember. It's a hard game but doable, and I didn't have any help. Good luck!

      No one needs it, but I expect now that the tech is ready, it will revolutionize gaming, over a period of years.

    2. Keatah


      I'm quite happy with the traditional keyboard/mouse/monitor interface.


      Do we actually "need" this VR stuff? Especially considering how it failed in the 90's.


      I'm just wondering what I would use this for?

  18. Just heard they're finally going to do an Incredibles 2. Made my week.

      inconceivable !

  19. Just heard they're finally going to do an Incredibles 2. Made my week.

  20. Thanks, intvnut! Sounds great, I guess you're just behind your original timetable. For what it's worth, I do own the cart, I would just prefer to play it via emulation.
  21. I take it back, the overall running speed is crucial to avoid the fast shots by the enemies.
  22. It's been nearly another year since the promise of Space Patrol being released to ROM. Will this ever happen? We really need this game made available to those of us who cannot come to grips with the INTV controller... I'd be happy to pay full price for such a ROM.
