Mortal Kombat X moves forward with a snappier version of the previous game's fighting and some cool new characters, but the story and other features around the edges feel a bit rough in spots.
The ways that Axiom Verge resembles Metroid help set up and drive home the ways that Axiom Verge is most definitely not Metroid.
Hotline Miami's thrillingly brutal gameplay is stretched to the point of breaking in this aesthetically pleasing, but otherwise disappointing sequel.
I too had a TI994a but besides getting some good TI Basic programming in, I never really appreciated the thing. I was forced to use the thing as my sole gaming device for a long time, and there were some decent games. TI Invaders, TI Toad, Pole Position... I would have been much happier with a C64 or simply game consoles. I made a lot of text adventures on the thing, some of them pretty elaborate. It taught me a lot of good early lessons about computers. But actually in the 80's I did dream of being a programmer. I even thought of working at Nintendo. By the 90's I realized I wasn't a huge fan of math and intelligently naming variables and making notes in source code seemed like an incredibly annoying aspect of C++ programming. I think if I had picked the programmer path I'd be over my head and depressed right now.
