Re: What are you currently playing?

Currently secretly playing through a game I'm trying not to publicize yet until I reveal it as my selection for Review #100 at my website. #topsecret

Re: Best comeback?

My best friend got Mortal Kombat II on Sega Genesis very soon after it released – it quickly became the game of choice between our group of friends. I was, by far, the youngest of the bunch, being only in third grade while the others were middle schoolers at the time. I was young enough that it was ...

Re: Best 2-Player games on SNES / NES to play with Girlfrien

Is the girlfriend a gamer at all, or a completely never-played-video-games-in-my-life sort of person?

Re: John Barry RIP

*sigh* Always a sad thing when someone who contributed to our years of escapism passes away. It makes the unreal real and life a little less pleasant.

Re: In 'the zone'

Ohhh yeah, absolutely. I love when you're playing an 8- or 16-bit two-dimensional platformer and you're barely dodging projectiles, running at full-speed through entire levels, hitting all the precision jumps by the pixel -- even manually manipulating the RNG or glitchin' out. Like when you play Sup...

Re: Thinner *1996 movie

The part where she just suddenly stabs him through the hand made me twitch. And the "Lizard" curse is kinda creepy.

Re: Best or funniest dialogue in games

Someone on my Facebook page recently asked what my favorite video game (NES, specifically) quote was. My reply: While it is a difficult question, like many matters of the NES, sentimentality overcomes rationale and I do have an answer -- “You must have bananas in your ears!” from StarTropics.Why? We...

You can definitely get a more rapid pace if you can get into a consistent vibratory rhythm rather than rely on your actual finger speed.

Re: I Hate Button Mashers

What a disaster. I'm reading through this entire post and you're all describing rapid fire . A button masher is... Thank you!! I knew we had the wrong term (I think of button-mashing as when my younger sister used to beat me as a fluke in fighting games) but I couldn't think of the proper correct p...

Re: Best arcade unit/game ever?

I had forgotten about the infinitely spinning wheels of the Super Off-Road cab until it was mentioned. Thanks for that.

Re: Doom-The console ports

It's really weird -- I've played the SNES, N64, and 32X versions, which I wouldn't have expected to be able to say; overall, for whatever reason, the 32X version stuck out for me. Just felt "edgier" and "grittier" somehow, but I'm likely crazy.
