    While some of this sidequest stuff can be a bit dull to watch, I think it is very important to do it all to get the full effect of the series as it goes on. So many of those little choices and action...

  • Raven10 posted a message in the forum topic Playstation Mini Line up Announced. Thoughts?. on the General Discussion board

    So obviously Activision was not on board with this so no Crash or Spyro. And I don't know exactly what the licenses for Tony Hawk were back in the day. Does a rerelease like this fit under the origin...

    The thing is that the Intellivision sucked. Yea, those sports games were licensed but you still had to play them on the Intellivision. And those other innovations are at best minor and at worst stretc...

    "Classics" Digital Part 4: An Ocean of Possibilities

    As we look through the library of Classics Digital I wanted to give a very quick history lesson. And that lesson is that this all ends at Infogrames (Atari SA). This onetime large French publisher sco...

    I have used Fanatical for years, since its days as Bundle Stars. I in fact just recently purchased a bundle from them earlier this week. Had no issues whatsoever. They are a licensed Steam partner, so...

    As long as I don't have to stream my playthrough of their next game on Mixer to get enough XP to level up without buying XP boosters I'm probably okay with this. I loved Pillars and Tyranny and I thin...
