Re: Games Beaten 2024

Donkey Kong Country - SNES I guess this is this first game I've beaten this year? edit: Apparently I beat other stuff; just haven't kept track lol If we were back in the 90's I'd tell you to just rent this one. The difficulty is all over the place. Some levels you'll breeze through with no issues a...

Re: NEW RB Server - Forum Upgrade - Some WIP

I don't like that we can't add that space between a quote and new text. I'm on RB Prosilver Dark.

Re: Streaming music

Glad you're enjoying it! I initially discovered it back when I had an iPhone and got fed up with iTunes (various issues). I always use VLC on a computer so I was surprised to learn of an app. Haven't looked back since.

Re: Why do people like roguelikes?

It's okay to not like a game but can we take a moment and recognize that you're complaining about a card game being "cheap and rigged" when you're playing against a psychopath that is a cheat and rigs the game in their favor? LOL

Re: What are you playing?

I'm towards the end of Donkey Kong Country and, honestly, I find it very irritating. The difficulty throughout the game has been all over the place. One level will be easy with a lot of barrels to skip through most of the content. Other stages will place enemies every three feet - often right after ...

Re: Random Gaming Thoughts

I'd be interested in a fully write-up, but the thing I really am most curious about is the how happy you are with the d-pad and thumb sticks. Like, is the d-pad full-size, or is it smaller like on the gba? Do you have any problems with unintended inputs, like registering down-right when you really ...

Online game deals thread

Looks like all the other deals threads got wiped in the update. I'll just start a generic catch-all thread for online deals.
Post online deals you find here. No links to shady places. Official stores only.

Re: What are you listening to at the present? (genres helpful)

If you like Donkey Kong Country 2 and LoFi remixes well I have an album for you!

Here's a link to the album on bandcamp.

I actually picked up my vinyl copy at a video game store on a whim. Turns out this album makes for some pretty sweet background music while you're doing work or whatever.

Re: PlayStation 3 General Discussion

I think you can upgrade the drive but I'm not into the hardware/software mod scene. Just keeping mine stock for now. I have a couple of PS2 classics that I bought back in the day. But PS2 emulation on PC's has surpassed the "official" emulator. It's free and offers better performance and v...
