  • Bug (2006) is a strange creature, I'll give it that with no qualms. Scripted by the same man who wrote the stage play, and directed by William Friedkin, it also doesn't feel like a filmed play. Things move around and the actors don't just stand th…
  • Never having played Sonic the Hedgehog on Game Gear before, I kind of liked the unique aspects to its areas. I didn't like some other things, such as a ridiculous programming glitch that lacks a third digit when collecting rings that reverts to 0 w…
  • Kinda glad I didn't volunteer for this one. Considering how long it can take to reboot a crashed game on the Vita, in fact I'm very glad.
  • There will be a review for 3 as well, but I have to finish it first. The localization is indeed worse in this one though, at times looking like someone just did auto-translate without checking afterward. That bug where impassable tiles can't be fi…
  • Valkyria Revolution is a weird thing. Combat is kind of fun, but unless I make a point to fiddle around with free missions the cut scenes dwarf it in game time. That means I have to focus on someone who makes for the least engaged Grim Reaper I've…
  • Another mishmash. Brave (2012) is good Pixar, and I'm happy to have finally seen it. I wouldn't call it great Pixar though. The attention to detail is typically nice, and all the Scottish accents among the vocal performances are pleasant to hear.…
  • I didn't talk too much about the story because, yeah, it's one from 1991 that hasn't been updated in the slightest - of course it isn't going to occupy much time. Those screen transitions are something else again though. Maybe I'm unlucky, because…
  • Time for results of this one. Soon, a follow-up using the higher voted systems combined over both will appear. PS3 216 20.32% Vita 171 16.09% PS4 168 15.80% PSP 167 15.71% 3DS 116 10.91% PC 114 10.72% DS 73 6.87% Xbox 360 2…
  • Mishmash time. License to Wed (2007) is a mostly-forgotten example of a high-concept Hollywood script idea (Robin Williams is a priest testing would-be newlyweds!) that fails. Mandy Moore and John Krasinski are alright as the couple, though their …
  • I'm most interested in Etrian V, though I'll certainly replay Radiant Historia. As for Strange Journey, even a Redux version leaves me a little leery at this point.
  • Now to talk about a couple of recent big movies that didn't impress me much... Guardians of the Galaxy volume 2 (2017) is out there right now, hoovering up more moolah for Marvel and Disney to ogle. I accept that I'm in the minority with regard to …
  • Time to move this along with some results so we can have another poll related to this one... PS1 376 34.09% PS2 305 27.65% SNES 295 26.75% PC 52 4.71% GBA 31 2.81% Turbo Duo 18 1.63% Genesis/Mega Drive 9 0.82% Game Boy/Color …
  • That new dungeon sounds like the kind of thing I don't have much patience for in recent years, but the other additions intrigue me. I'd gladly try it again should some enterprising publisher bring it across the Pacific.
  • I second your 'Gimme this now!' sentiment, Mac. The more I use the Vita the handier a platform I'm finding it, and more Ys on there is absolutely okay with me.
  • I tried to be somewhat constructive and not just rant negatively, because there were some things I liked. Those technical issues though... it's just not much fun to hear a boss's disintegration at the end of the battle be complete long before the v…
  • Huh. Fire Emblem Echoes is definitely distinct. If I was playing the original NES version it might be more obvious whether this was yet another NES 'what a difference!' sequels, but even now the ability to look around environments and some kind of…
  • It's probably because I tried every character, but I didn't have a problem when the available options decreased. Plus there's that bonus experience awarded after every battle, which won't save a character you never use (La Hire wasn't as good as th…
  • GameCube will be popping up in a follow-up poll on more recent consoles that I put up near the end of the month. There's no hard and fast rule to this, but since PS2 did come out a year earlier, it's not completely nonsensical.
  • Let us have some results now. PS4 1117 65.06% PC 202 11.76% Switch 146 8.50% Vita 119 6.93% 3DS 114 6.64% Mobile 12 0.70% Xbox One 7 0.41% Total Votes 1717

  • Yeah, Growlanser. Scheduling that one has proved to be quite a challenge. It's still on the list though, and it WILL happen, though I don't yet have a date.
  • Speaking of Disney, I gave The Aristocats (1970) a shot for the first time in many years. I don't think anyone would try arguing that this is Disney's finest hour, because it certainly isn't. The laidback pace makes it hard to get deeply involved,…
