I really do agree with that idea. I like the fresh aspect of new eyes on something with the backup support of others. Our site isn't a big one, and we all communicate via email and chat lines. When a review company sends a single code it's hard. These big places where they get to walk across the hall to each other's offices is a different thing.

As a reviewer myself, I have a strange opinion on this. Reviewers need to be able to work outside their comfort zones. If you have an FPS head review Doom, they might find the nuances worth pointing out, but a side scroll lover might just see things that bar newbies from getting in on the genre. It provides a fresh outlook. Game reviews are interesting in that it’s an interactive medium: you change the experience based on how you deal with it. News reporters can be biased, so can game reviewe...

Hmm...looks blue and black to me.

That may be your perspective. I'd rather have the NES than he SNES. In my 30s and the NES is what I grew up with. There may be "better" games on the SNES but that doesn't devalue the NES.

Mind you I have a NES mini and plan to get a SNES if I find one, but if both were in front of me I'd get the NES.

The fine print in the GameStop app says yes, but it's only worth $75 credit.

The new ones have all features, but the reason the others are missing some parts is because they existed before the Switch. A recent update allowed the system to use them. Kind of a bonus for those who owned them more than being marketed for the Switch.

There's an Atari flashback that plays carts? I haven't seen that yet.

Maybe they can actually one up them by making enough for people to purchase.

I only got to play about 20 minutes, and loved what I saw, even though I lost every match! Looking forward to the next weekend.
That night I had a dream I'd like to see to fruition. Unlockable Little Mac. No arms or anything, just makes up for it as a good dodger with moves that get him in and hit hard. It'd be neat to see that variation in a game based on long-range, even if it felt a little out of balance.

I don't sense a parental vibe in this article. Lol.

The only one that ever got me was a cutscene in MGS3 that would skip if I pressed start, and it wouldn't pause. It's a balance between game fun and priority. "The house is on fire" vs. "dad where's this one particular hot wheel car." "My day was so boring" vs. "honey I'm pregnant." :)

I've had to let go of a lot of these as time goes on. B...

Good list, but I'm still holding out for Phoenix Wright. I don't care what "tier" he is....I had a blast playing as him! The one or two times I landed his super were worth every moment!

Heads up! I went through this and shared it with friends once I knew it worked. One of my friends is a GameStop employee. He says that this is coming out odd like this because it wasn't supposed to. GameStop is allegedly testing out their new rewards system that goes live next month, and it was supposed to be in-house, with a bonus that they test it with employees. They get a rigorous test, their staff get a free game. Problem, of course, because it's working for everyone.

Neat. Is there a thing I'm missing why the animated version is 127 gamerscore?

Also, slightly funny to see a site named after a Sony controller report on an interaction between Microsoft and Nintendo. ^_^

Ahh. That clarifies it. I took "Atari" as "Atari the system" not "atari the games company."

That's like seeing a Nintendo Classics collection and having it have third parties like Final Fantasy I on it.


(just messing around....thanks for the clarification! I just wish the company had been just as clear)

The original Lords of Shadow turned me off. When it took the hero down the villain path, turning away from everything he believed in, it was just too much for me.

I'd like to see a camp version, though I may be in the minority. Take the Belmont from Captain N and put him in a fitting universe. I'd watch that!

I had fun with this. I had the $80 in Christmas money, and needed a new controller. I coulda went out and bought a new $60 controller and been done, but I had an idea.

I loaded up the site and handed the PC to my 5 and 10 year old sons with my wife supervising. I then let them make the purchase, and intentionally hid and did not read every single email that was sent regarding it (looked at them afterwards, if you do this idea do the same, they put pics of your controller in...

What about the Gamestop King's Tale game?

Got the 2TB for $69. 4TB for right about $100. $169 to upgrade four machines is pretty good considering the link this guy puts in for the one HD he's getting is $123 on it's own. You could move the one drive down the line to a PS3, but there's no external casing in his set up.
