E3 2013 thoughts

In a word: disappointed. I went into this E3 rather interested. Please notice that I specifically did not say excited. I watched the conferences by Microsoft, Ubisoft and Sony as well as Nintendo's Direct and Destructoid's v...

 


Why I'm just saying no to Xbone

Short and sweet:  Microsoft clarified the details regarding the Xbox One's policies regarding used games, DRM, etc. I have to say, it's even worse than I expected. I admit that I'm not a MS fan but I was still interested in t...

 


Revisiting GameCube: Four Swords Adventures

The stars aligned last week! I had a house full of friends, a GameCube, 4 GBA SPs, 4 gamelink cables and a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures. I bought this game when it originally released but never reall...

 


Final Skyward Sword thoughts

So, I finally finished Skyward Sword. To be honest, I cannot recall any other game leading me to such disparate feelings. In fact, Skyward Sword is both the best and worst game in The Legend of Zelda series. Controls At th...

 



The PS4 announcement: One week later

One week ago Sony announced the PS4. I've given myself a week to digest and contemplate all of the information. Here are my thoughts broken down by topics. First off, RIP XMB. I really love the PS3/PSP UI. It was nice that b...

 


Learning from the past: Handheld games

There's a lot of talk about the handheld video gaming market. Nintendo and Sony seem to be struggling in the U.S. and the Vita is dying in both Japan and the U.S. Luckily for Sony, the PSP still seems to have a bit of life le...

 


Revisiting GameCube: Twilight Princess

I'm skipping information on characters and story to avoid spoilers. Spoiler: I love the characters and the ending gave me goosebumps and made me feel sad to leave this world behind. Controversy. If there's one thing video ga...

 


GameCube component cable review

With my recent decision to revisit the last generation of consoles, I started to read about the mythical GameCube component cables. These cables are expensive, fairly hard to find and only work with pre-2004 systems. Luckil...

 


Moving forward by going back

As usual, I looked at the upcoming games list at Gamefaqs and found a total of 3 upcoming games I'm interested in - Fire Emblem: Awakening, Etrian IV and Naruto Powerful Shippuden. In the past, such revelations forced me to l...

 


Neo Geo X final impressions

I've had the Neo Geo X for just under a month. After a lot of experimentation and comparison, I returned the console tonight. Basically, the handheld system is nice but the emulation is a bit sloppy and the video output is la...

 


Genre Breakers #1: Chrono Trigger

I often find myself thinking about the games that were such a great entry in its genre, that it effectively killed the genre for me. This series will examine these games as well as how and why they were so incredible to me. N...

 


About nilcamone of us since 9:53 AM on 01.31.2007

Old-school gamer. I started gaming with the Atari 2600. I became an addict with the arcade release of Street Fighter II at my college. The SNES release pushed me into buying that system and a lame arcade stick. I haven't looked back since then. I still consider the 16-bit to be the Golden Age of gaming. The current generation is keeping me pretty happy, especially with the fighting game renaissance that's happening lately. And, yes, I'm old.

Proud owner of: Kiwi Gameboy Color, Purple GBA, GBA SP, GBA Micro, PSP 3000, Clear NeoGeo Pocket, purple SwanCrystal, SNES, Genesis, N64, purple Gamecube, PS3, white New 3DS, black Japanese New 3DS, seafoam 2DS, and Wii U.

Favorite Games: Last Blade, Street Fighter Alpha 2, A Link to the Past, Minish Cap, King of Fighters, Ikaruga, Macross: Do You Remember Love, A Link Between Worlds, Ocarina of Time 3DS, Valkyria Chronicles, Professor Layton, Killer7, Pokken Tournament
