  1. I found codes for XBox Live Gold (14 days free) and Game Pass (1 month free) at the bottom of a console box. Not sure if they've ever been used, but if anyone want to try, you can have them. Just send me a message. Edit. These are gone.
  2. I installed the recent Avengers game on XBox Series X (its on Gamepass) and quit after about 45 mins or so. It was pretty, but felt about as bland and boring as any game I've ever played. Doubt I'll come back to it and give it a chance. Also installed Castlevania: Harmony of Despair and quit after about 10 mins. Had no idea what the heck was happening in that game, and couldn't see anything. I may come back to that one, though, and see if there's some camera controls or something that'll make it a bit more playable to me.
  3. Mostly It's not verbatim, but I was 100% thinking of ol' Delmar and that brilliant line.
  4. No. You quoted me out of context by choosing only a select part of text to imply a different meaning. I’m sure you understand this, but oh well. Like this, see… Thanks for admitting it! ☹️ Absolutely! Nothing to deny there. Well, I’d prefer it to ALSO have physical media, to be clear. Or even without a traditional physical media, I’d simply prefer a method of ownership that helps ensure the games will still work properly 30 years later, to appeal to the hoarder/collectors who enjoy that sort of thing. And maybe this current NFT method is the perfect best of all worlds, but any questions asked about how they’re “future proof,” goes unanswered or receives a vague “we have it all worked out… everyone is gonna love this” type of reply. Not true. So, denied. My agenda… there isn’t one. Do I think not having physical media is a mistake? I’m not adamant at “yes” or “no,” but I’d definitely lean toward “yes,” if asked. But my reasons for leaning towards “yes” have absolutely nothing to do with Kotaku, piracy, or anything I’ve discussed in this thread (until my previous NFT comment, that is)
  5. Ah, my bad. I was not, as the kids like to say "in the know." ... at least I think they say that. 😁
  6. Not sure how that's "fake info..." I'd be interested in knowing too.
  7. My memory is a bit fuzzy, so apologies if I'm wrong here, but I think the Super Nt and Mega Sg initially had the same type of mess, where they sold out fast and people couldn't get one -- website crashing, horror stories galore, and then they came back a bit later and were quite easier to get. And I kinda got the impression that would be the same for Pocket, so hopefully you'll get a shot to pick one up during a future stock.
  8. So, I'm confused -- are they nearly sold out? Probably not? I figured they'd go pretty quickly, but with all the noise I'm seeing, not sure what's what anymore.
  9. Not exactly Amico related, but if you don't mind --- what's a Lineman do? 😄 I've been kinda curious ever since you posted that pic where you were, if I recall correctly, hanging from a helicopter at work, listening to video game soundtracks.
  10. Yeah, usually guys are complete tools in there, then when they get banned they cry "all I said was..." but I gotta say, seems like you got a raw deal there, unless there was something that got deleted before I saw it. Not seeing anything from you that seems it should have warranted a ban. Sorry, dude. ☹️
  11. Most of your unhinged rant came across as sadly amusing to me, but that one part where you "quoted me" had me curious, bc that didn't sound at all like anything I was thinking. So had to find out what kinda silliness I was spouting, to see if I really misspoke and said that or if you were just lying, and I found that I said this -- Which is quite a bit different from your accusation in your claim to support your agenda about my claim to support my agenda.
  12. Man, that Razzie.P sounds like a real Snidely Whiplash type of sumbitch. 🤣
  13. 16) Metroid Dread (Switch) Eh, I did not like this one at all. Controls just never clicked with me. So many odd bumper/trigger combos I felt like I was playing a modern Fifa. I mentioned this in a different, “Metroid Dread” thread -- I can max out the score on Contra, beat Battetoads, and do a "no hit run" on the first 2 Dark Souls games easier than I can consistently do moves like double jump (or space jump or whatever it's called) in this game. And I wasn’t really exaggerating much. Something just feels so “off” about the maneuvers in this game. I can do the double jump/infinite jump thing with ease and nail it 100% of the time when in a open area, no enemies (like teleport areas) – but you throw some combat in there and that framerate drops, it’s like the timing of things just goes random. Same goes with wall jumps, grabbing ledges, etc. Just never seemed to work right for me. Sad thing is, nothing was really “difficult,” in a traditional sense. Bosses followed the same, easy to predict patterns. Nearly every death in my game came from inputs just not working properly. Those wannabe Stealth sections can piss off and die. They weren’t tense. They weren’t fun. They were just something in the way of getting back to the game. The later part of the game starts throwing a crapload of the “same” boss over n’ over – like they ran out of ideas or something. But that’s ok, mostly… they were simple, fun fights – but at the end of each, there’s some horseshit quick time nonsense that just kills it for me. I say I died 50+ times on those, with about a dozen “perfect” fights, no damage taken, but died because of the quicktime crap. Oh well, rant over. If you’re a diehard fan, excuse my venting, please. 😁 Hopefully this one is everything the Metroid fans wanted it to be, but it was a pretty sour experience for me.
  14. Same. Well, kinda... I thought the wood grain looked ok, but I really liked some of the other colors more. Ended up waiting and grabbing the VIP instead, if I remember the order of things correctly. But... after that, other colors were announced and I was almost thinking of cancelling black to get one of those. Didn't though.
  15. Very little, during cutscenes. I haven't finished it yet (in the final stretch, I believe) but so far you see about umpteen hundred versions of the same cutscene where you'll enter a room, but no dialog. Then there's one where 2 characters have a conversation. Oh... and there are a few instances where you shove your arm in a computer and it talks a bit, kind of telling you what's up and what to do next.
  16. Did you send units to more publications, or just that one? Curious to know it we should expect more reviews to pop up soon (soon = today, tomorrow, next week) If that was the only one you sent, why them? Are you expecting it to be more well received in Europe than other parts of the world? Or why would they be a better fit for review units over something like Game Informer or.. er... I just realized I have no idea what other gaming magazines are still popular 😄
  17. Not familiar with the OS. Have to go check that out. I was one of the lucky ones, I suppose. I got an order in pretty easily, if I recall correctly.
  18. I'm currently at Experiment Z-57 and not sure if I'll finish or just quit. I'm having a hell of a time getting used to the controls, to the point where most of the game so far has been a negative experience. I can max out the score on Contra, beat Battetoads, and do a "no hit run" on the first 2 Dark Souls game easier than I can consistently do moves like double jump (or space jump or whatever it's called) in this game.
  19. I assume you're just meaning that last part, where they're saying "you're not our demographic" and not saying it's the facts to "no more official sites... I hadn't really thought about it... and it seems kind of odd" Joking aside, I understand why they say that, and it makes sense, and not trying to imply and dishonesty or lack of transparency. Just hit me as odd to think a company wouldn't use a site that does cater to their intended demographic as one of their "unofficial blogs" in addition to (or instead of) a site where you'd need to keep reminding the users "you're not our demo." For example, are there no sites/forums devoted to parenting, family activities, etc, where Tommy or another Intellivision rep has racked up several thousand posts over the last 2 years?
  20. Funny that you mention Steam in the NTF thread -- I logged in today and saw this. I don't care enough to click on them to see what all the fuss is about, though.
  21. Either you had one heck of a time jump in your conversation there to prove a point, or you had some seriously impressive time jump tech as a kid to use Google and find steps for playing pirated games on Switch 😁 Does it still need custom firmware, using something like a paperclip to bridge 2 pins together, and a few other pain in the butt steps to do? Its getting a bit long in the tooth, of course, so I figure it's been nice and sorted out by now, but as of (whenever the lite came out) it was quite a bit more than your everyday user can do. I don't think we really know what it is, yet, do we? Maybe we do and I just haven't been bothered to seek it out, but I thought it was just a modified android with some potentially nifty control tech. And to be clear, I have no intention of stealing Amico games 😁 I have the system pre-ordered and fully intend to buy the ones I wanna play. Same with Switch, I have no interest in pirating anything for it. ... until that point in the future where servers are down and I can no longer get the games I bought bc the companies don't give a crap any more. Then I'm like John Rambo --- they drew first blood.
  22. Are there no other "more official" sites like that? I hadn't really thought about it, but it seems kind of odd if one of their primary sources of info and communication was a site where they've repeatedly told the users "you're not our demographic..."
