Agreed. I got so frustrated with AC3 I gave up on it. The one I really enjoyed before Odyssey was AC Syndicate. The assassins skills were more nuanced than AC3 and I really dug sneaking around Victorian London. The level of detail in that game is pretty damn good. Also, after a certain point, there’s a hidden DLC on Read more

Compared to other locales the series takes place in, there isn’t much in the way of heights for Connor to climb. And yeah, there is a ton of running around. But I’m all about side quests and tooling around wherever I want, which is why I found Odyssey so satisfying.

The problem with AC3 is, as I wrote above, the Read more

I got the free AC3 and Liberation. I find Liberation to be somewhat unplayable. Not literally, but it’s so tedious. There’s also this running to missions across large expanses of nothing, with no fast travel options, and the terrain is so dark and ugly. I gave up after a couple hours.

AC3 is a different beast. I was Read more

I did try Project Stream, and it was, frankly, a mess. And that was on a decent, hard-wired internet connection. I can’t even imagine how bad it would be over the air on a cell network.

Agreed. I liked the combat and controls a lot, but the lack of map, repetitive backtracking, etc. felt like a game from 20 years ago. It didn’t add challenge or fun, it just wasted time.

Yep, everything you said 100%. I like games to be FUN, give me a hard challenge but make it worthwhile with a nice reward. Give me a sweet power up, give me a few blasts of color and excitement. This just felt like....empty to me. None of the attacks felt like they had any impact, the art style and darkness/music was Read more

It is a really, really beautiful game. Clever battle gameplay, touching storyline, amazing looks and music. That’s why it’s so tragic that it didn’t make it over — if it was released today it would win Game of the Year awards. It’s a masterpiece.

You shut your mouth! God Bless the Ring is a *fantastic* game!

Yeah, the “Oh, you realized that you spent $200 on something that wasn’t what you were promised? Here’s $5 in pretend money” response is super infuriating.

Charge cycles isn’t as important as so many are painting it. The length of time you’ve let it sit with a high charge level is pretty much as important. I’m sorry, but the Genius Bar people are a group of clowns, paid to lie to you, to try to extract the maximum amount of money from you while helping you as little as Read more

I would only be interested in one if it could be hacked to run other games and use wireless controllers, and really just for the sake of having an emulator box that looked like a mini PS1.

I would imagine this one will probably get a weekend of use and then never touched again. Unlike NES and SNES games, these early PS1 titles aged very poorly and quite frankly, are ugly and hard to look at. Also the lack of analog controls for early 3D games are going to make these games a nightmare to control.

You make a good point. Every gamer is in to retro for a very different set of games, and it would be hard to satisfy all of them. But what if these retro devices also played classic discs/carts? Then you could get new “retro” fans into the old stuff, sell consoles, and keep the old grumps like me happy because i can Read more

I use my NES Classic regularly, even though I have a NES and a good collection of carts. The emulation is pretty good and it’s fun to play on my HDTV. It being plug and play so that I don’t have to fiddle with settings on my PC is a big plus. I also pull out my SNES Classic occasionally to play Mario Kart with my son Read more

I bought an SNES Classic, then played it just long enough to beat Super Metroid and Super Mario World. I’ll probably never touch it again. What makes my choice doubly stupid is I have both those games (and dozens more) for my original SNES. I don’t know what I was thinking.

I’ve put a lot of hours into my SNES Mini; it’s really satisfying to play using an actual SNES controller, and the little emulation bells and whistles are nice.
