Re: War Thunder Thoughts?

I played War Thunder a little in its early days, like 2013ish, and it was actually only planes then. The game was initially called World of Planes. I think I mostly played with a mouse and keyboard, and steering the plane was arcadey enough that such a setup was fine. For me it was a fun, light, onl...

Re: Hockey Night In DSP 2021-2022

Torts is like a gallon of milk in a broken cooler -- very limited shelf life. This is the popular impression and it is also what I assumed to be the case a few months ago, but if you look into it, it's not accurate. He lasted 535 games with TB, 319 with NY, only 82 with VAN, and then most recently ...

Re: Hockey Night In DSP 2021-2022

I would love to hear what Torts thinks of what has gone down with the Flyers at the draft, bringing in Deslaurier, DeAngelo, and the massive fan backlash. 8O 8O I know your opinion of Torts is effected by his disastrous year in VAN, but his stints in TB NY and CLB were all broadly successful. I also...

Re: Hockey Night In DSP 2021-2022

I hesitate to even get started on the disgrace that is the Flyers management and their plan, but here I go. They fired Vigneault in December and had 7 months to prepare for their offseason. On the one hand, the smartest thing probably would be to say is, we're losing our captain and leading scorer t...

Re: Hockey Night In DSP 2021-2022

If the Broadstreet (looking at your Flyers, Diablo) bullies are serious about hiring Torts to coach their team, then they have no clue what they are doing and their franchise will continue to struggle forever. Yes, John would shape up a few individuals but his style of coaching would not last in to...

Legend Bowl - New Retro Football Game

It's clearly an homage to 16-bit football games, but with greatly updated and modern features. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnvVfipHoUM It's currently rated 'very positive' on Steam with 301 reviews, ...

Art of Rally

I recently stumbled across a neat retro-styled indie rally game called Art of Rally. It's a pretty simple game with simple overhead style gameplay, playing through a career from 1967 to the 90s unlocking cars and liveries as you do. It's got a really chill vibe and atmosphere and is a simple good ti...

Re: Throwback Fun: Bluecoats North &South

Ha, I had North & South for NES, and honestly I always wanted to like it more than I actually did. Those battles were so frustrating...I lost many good cavalrymen to charges straight into a gorge! LOL

I could see a remake being kinda fun if done right. Probably not at $30 though.

Re: NHL 21 News

It would be nice if they would let us know more about NHL 94. I would probably only buy that version so I guess that’s why they they are trying to get you to preorder NHL21 first. EA has put some videos of it on Twitter. It's pretty clearly just the Sega Genesis game running on an emulator, with so...

Many months there's several games I don't have any interest in, and other months I forget to cancel when I really don't want any of them. Anyway, I've built a backlog of unclaimed games th...

You have had a JOURNEY with that game, PK!

Maybe I'll give it a try the next time it hits $10 or so, or even better if it gets in a Humble Bundle on PC.
GRID ultimate edition was in the Humble Choice Bundle in June.

Re: NHL 94 might be back

Hmm. NHL06 for PS2 had a retro mode which was basically just the Genesis version emulated, but with all the player names/numbers changed because they couldn't use the old player names anymore. And as the article mentions, NHL14 had an NHL94 Anniversary mode, but it was just a tweaked version of NHL1...

Re: PS2 Sports Games - the best

Late PS2 era for me I basically only played the PES/Winning Eleven Soccer games. Maybe Winning Eleven 7 or 8? I don't remember the numbers.

I also like Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast for a chilled out arcade racer.
