I already own one and I pre-ordered on Amazon when it was listed at $100 and only paid that. /raiseroof

I actually own all my old video game consoles (along with games) but dragging them out individually to hook them up to a HDTV is a pain. I can't even hook up most of them as I only have the RF Adapter for them. So being able to hook something up via HDMI is pretty great.

I didn't have the issue Jeff seemed to be having getting it to recognize carts. I definitely had to re-seat games on occasion but it has been pretty good. I think something could be wrong with his console. His other complaints however I find to be totally valid:

- The controller that comes with it is garbage.

- Pulling cartridges out takes way too much effort, feels like you might crack the cartridge in half trying to rip it out.

- You have to hold the power button like 5 seconds before it will turn on. When I first got my system I thought it was defective for about 20 minutes before I figured this out.

- Would be nice if I could connect on the internet to update system instead of using SD card.

I just wish I could play Atari 2600 games on it but besides that I'm pretty happy with it. Being able to plug a SNES controller in and play a Genesis game (and vice versa) I think is pretty awesome. All the save state stuff is awesome. Being able to mess with options on the fly is great. It is definitely a cool product that would benefit from some minor iterations but the past few weeks I have been playing Shining Force and that is great.

I approve.

I'd love to see a bunch of donwloadable 8-10 hour JRPGs, that would be awesome. But nah, not all games. I enjoyed Stick of Truth's lean approach but I'd be severely dissapointed if Persona 5 cames out and it was only 8 hours long.

I think I remember reading a recent article that said there will be serveral self-contained DLC "episodes." I remember a moment in the game that sounded like they were hinting at something.

After you complete the rumor quest for the girls a few of them mention an upcoming slumber party. Wendy also leaves a message on facebook saying anyone who can read her message is invited.

Persona 4, often I forget that I never actually played it myself. The ER did prompt me to play Persona 3 though.

SInce you seem to have PayPal, you could also apply for one of their Debit MasterCards, it's pretty nifty.

Nope, I'm all about minimalism, perhaps to the extent of OCD.

All's fair in love and video game top 10s. All of the political intrigue was very entertaining to me. I think it was a big win for Patrick to get Papers Please on the list. Alex I thought was going to stage a filibuster to get Super Mario 3D World on there, which would have been awesome, but unfortunately he eventually let it go. There was no way Jeff was going to have Dive Kick not be on the list and I think the other guys reckognized that early, haha. Congrats to Brad though for getting Dota 2 on the list and also having large support for Brothers.

Watched it and enjoyed it.
