Re: Discussion: Video Games

The Sly games come from the 'Platformer Trio' of the PS2. If you enjoyed Ratchet & Clank or Jak & Daxter, you'll absolutely love the Sly series. The Sly Collection does an excellent job of porting the original trilogy to the PS3 with HD graphics. I find the games very fun and charming. The character...

I recently acquired a PS3 Kiosk from a local GameStop. They took the original TV, so I mounted a PS3 3D Display on it. This is my first time using a 3D television, so I'm anxious to start playing a fully 3D game on it. The closest upcoming title that fits the bill is Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. I'v...

I consider DDR: Mario Mix one of the worst DDR games. Mario Mix isn't really made for enthusiasts of the DDR series. It is made with newcomers in mind.

Capcom has gained something of a reputation for this kind of stuff now. They are completely out of touch with their fan base. Which is quite sad, because many of my favorite games were published/developed by that very same company.

Re: Discussion: Video Games

Looks like they are going back to the old formula of 2 main versions and a follow up special version.
Pokemon X & Y have to be followed by Pokemon Z.

Then again, we never got Pokemon Gray despite the third legendary obviously being gray.
