  1. I mean the real RPGs. The JRPG's of course! Not the cRPGs or crap RPGs! Nor the wRPGs or wuss RPGs! I'm kidding of course...
  2. While we're back on this subject, we sadly lost a few days ago Michael Collins, the Command Module Pilot of Apollo 11 (first moon landing) That only leaves Buzz as the last survivor of that trio. I hope he at least lives to see us go back to the moon...though obviously his big dream all along is to see us to venture far and take a trip to Mars! And this full length version of the Star Trek Enterprise theme ROCKS I may have not gotten to seen the 60s Golden Age of Space Exploration but I sure hope with this new Space Race (NASA vs SpaceX) both sides will
  3. Those NES was the neatest perk EVER in the original Animal Crossing...and yet nothing like that has shown up in AC since. I mean what is there in the later AC's that you can get that cannot also be gotten in the original GC version?
  4. Remember in the olden days you could much more easily know how fast a computer is by its MHz/GHz? Ever since that whole multi-cores thing it has become, much much more complicated. Sorta like how it used to be based on "bits" but apparently even now they don't bother with anything past 64 bits hardly anymore? I think the Dreamcast and PS2 were 128 bits though? BTW, would you believe that the first 16 bit console was technically the Intellivision?? Imagine how their commercials could've went: INTELLIVISION DONES. 16-bit arcade graphics! You can't do this on Atari! INTELLIVI
  5. Or maybe your favorite isn't a Turtle at all? For the movie my favorite is obviously Casey Jones
  6. Just goes to show Ice wasn't a "one hit wonder", he was a TWO hit wonder! And I do in fact remember seeing the first movie in the theater and noticing someone else's mom pointing out the first appearance of Shredder to her son. I sure was lucky to have been born at the right time in this case! And especially for video game history! I can't believe it's already been 30 years. And now we're fast approaching the 30th anniversary of the debut of Sonic the Hedgehog and later the SUPER Nintendo!!
  7. There's no such thing as "good crack". Remember, it's not just wrong, it could be dead wrong.
  8. Just "good"? I thought the SNES was the Golden Age of RPGs? And I do in fact agree that I'm much more impressed with what they was able to get out of the NES and have it be able to do things that weren't even imagined. Remember how from the very start Shiggy wanted Mario to ride a dinosaur but didn't think it could be done on the NES? Well in 1993 (Mario is Missing and that homebrew Super Mario World NES port), he got his wish! I mean the NES had what, 5-6 of those MMC "helper chips"? True the SNES had some too (most notably the famous FX and Capcom's C4 for MegaMan X2/X3) but they di
  9. Well now wait a minute, they're on much more powerful systems and they by then have several years experience working with those franchises, that isn't really a fair fight.
  10. I was totally like this myself as I already mentioned earlier in this thread and I wasn't the only one apparently! I for one am not surprised at all, I mean how could anyone resist such adorable creatures?
  11. Why did they insist on incorrectly making ProtoMan a villian? What did they just see the intro to MegaMan 5 and didn't bother seeing, as Paul Harvey would say, the rest of the story?
  12. That looks more like Bubble Man than MegaMan! And since when was he the GREEN Bomber? Bad enough that the GBA makes him the PINK Bomber when playing the GB MegaMen on it
  13. Almost every way. I'm tired of these clunky 8-bit games I need to find a system that's true 16 bit I need to get one pretty quick Hey mister, what'cha got out on that shelf you can sell me right away Maybe a console that does what Nintendon't The kind that makes you think you brought the arcades home Color palette don't matter, no I don't need no Mode 7 All that really concerns me is: Speeeeeed, and how fast can it go Can it get me over da loops quickly Blast processing can it outrun that fat plumber Yeah what I really need, i
  14. This year is the GBA's 20th anniversary, is that old skool enough for ya?
  15. To truly "beat" the game means you "Gotta Catch 'Em All". No really it's the MegaMan version of Pokemon in the sense that the real object of the game is to complete your Pokedex eh, I mean chip library as well as get all the title screen badges. And in BN4's case you can only fight V2 viruses for the the V2 chips/badges in Level 2 and then the V3 viruses/chips for Level 3 onward. Again, it makes sense as you play. At least with BN5 you can later switch back and forth between having V1/V2/V3 viruses on the 'net so you can go back and get the V1/V2 chips/PAs you didn't get earlier. Per
  16. That is among the most useless game mechanics EVER. Just using one Dark Chip totally ruins your game in the sense that one of the objects is to get the max 1000 HP and of course that's no longer possible if you use a Dark Chip and it's sooooo aggravating how when the Dark Chips (the ones with the purple pictures) appear the cursor defaults to them so you must be careful not to accidentally goof and select them! And honestly the Dark Chips aren't really hardly any better than regular chips/PAs besides. At least with BN5 you're not FORCED to have them come up on the Chip Select screen.
  17. Yeah you must do three playthroughs/Levels to get all the scenarios/Souls.
  18. No, it's supposed to be like that for the ThunderMan scenario. And what do you mean you "can't move around"? Just use a map of where the four marks as well as the Cursed Doll itself. You can get around the HP drain by things like jacking out and going back in, using FullEnrg or simply using Recovery chips during battle. And BTW this is NOT the kind of game you "jump into without a walkthrough". The way the fourth game is uniquely set up you MUST have a checklist of all the BMDs/PMDs (that's Blue and Purple Mystery Datas) and be very sure to find and check off all of them (as well as al
  19. Bloodlines is nowhere near as graphically/audio impressive as the SNES one. Honestly just the intro of Castlevania 4 would've blown people away the first time they saw it at that time.
  20. Talk about a 90s problem! In the Beavis & Butt-Head episode Special Delivery (S07E21) Burger World tries (emphasis on "tries") to offer a delivery service and Butt-Head doesn't quite get that those ancient 90s devices called "pagers" don't work directly as a phone! https://beavisandbutthead.fandom.com/wiki/Special_Delivery And would you believe one of the letters in the Dec 1991 Nintendo Power correctly predicted a future Super Mario Galaxy game? No fooling!
  21. I know, I was like, "but all the other kids has a Super Nintendo!" My parents or grandparents could've afforded it, they were just being mean. BTW, when I did finally get a SNES in 1994, my dearly departed uncle got me MLBPA Baseball to go with it. It hardly ever gets any attention but it's far and away the most realistic baseball game on the system. I know the Griffey games (with the SD2SNES you can easily have two different versions of Griffey Presents MLB...one with the original player names and one with their real names set up) get all the attention but MLBPA Baseball has all the
  22. So in addition to my newspaper archive reading, I've also resumed my project of reading the "big three" video gaming magazines (NP/EGM/GP); I left off at July 1991 and I'm finishing out the year of NP before I go back and alternate between EGM/GP from Jul-Dec 1991. If only I had been a subscriber of NP back then, can you imagine how even more exciting it would've been for then 11 year old me seeing the coverage of the brand new SUPER Power as well as the Classic power and Handheld power? Sadly I didn't get my own GameBoy either and I'd have to wait until my college days before I finally my f
  23. Well a cat's body temperature, which would be a fever for humans (100-101; that's F, not C) is normal for kitties. Or as Garfield once said, is also the temperature of microwave lasagna.
  24. With cats who needs a hot water bottle? Kitties just love climbing into bed with you and curling up with you just like in the pic and look at how adorable they look like that! Especially when they got their wittle mitten over their eye I love so much how warm and soft and fluffy and cuddly they are...
