    What beloved game just doesn't hold up these days for you?

    I didn't like Golden-Eye when it came out, I can't for the life of me understand the praise heaped upon it. Like, was it Stockholm syndrome?

    What beloved game just doesn't hold up these days for you?

    I have fond memories of Sonic Adventure 1 & 2, but I will leave them in the past. I don't think I'd have much patience for them anymore. Off the top of my head these are a few of mine : Dark Cloud 2. I played that game for hundreds of hours the first time. 100%'d it. Collected everything. I...

    So what part of your backlog, if any, have you worked on since this whole mess brought chunks of the world grinding to a halt?

    My work never shutdown, so life never stopped for me. On the one hand, shitty, would've love to have more game time, on the other hand, WOO! income!

    So, which next gen system will you be getting?

    If I get anything it'll probably be a PS5, but that's only because my wife and I are die hard RaC fans. Until RaC comes out I'll probably just stick to my PC, I finally have one that can play modern games so that's been a bit of a revelation to me.

    Mario Sunshine does not hold up

    I've never been able to get into Sunshine. I've always found it slow, I can't for the life of me get the hang of controlling FLUDD, and I just found the levels are chore to navigate. I'm glad some people love this game, I know a few, but I've never been one of them. Jak and Daxter came out...

    Your top showings from the PS5 reveal event

    So far the only thing they showed that make me think, "OK, maybe I will get one" was Ratchet and Clank.

    Best Butt in Video Games

    Whoever it is you play in RE: Revelations. I don't like RE games, I don't think I ever will, butt every time I see a screen shot of that game I think, "maybe I'm wrong ... maybe I should try again".

    How often do you use save states on emulators?

    More and more as the games difficulty ramps up. "I swear, I'll only save at the beginning of the level." "OK, I'll save at checkpoints too." "OK, this sections a pain in the ass, I'll save after I finish it." "OK, fuck this boss." *saves after every hit.*

    Suggestions to break the cycle!

    A Link to the Past is the template for every Zelda up until BoTW. I can't recommend it enough.

    What Games Do You Consider Masterpieces

    Legend of Zelda : A Link to the Past - My first video game love; I've played it a thousand times and I'll play it a thousand more. Castlevania : SoTN - Music, atmosphere, bosses, perfect pacing this game has it all. Dead Cells - I can't think of a game where the player control felt so perfect...

    Most WTF Game

    Stretch Panic. I love me some Treasure games but I couldn't figure out WTF was going on in that game.

    What's Your Favorite World?

    I can think of two (FFT's and FFXII) Ivalice and BotW's Hyrule. Ivalice has some of the coolest lore and races I've ever encountered in a video game. But I've never seen a world as fun to explore and just look at as Hyrule. I felt like a kid again where everything was new and their was...

    How Often Do You Finish Games?

    I probably only finish one in 10 games I start. I'm more interested in tasting games than I am in gorging on them.

    What are you playing?

    Mario Odyssey ... You know what this is. Loved it. As far as my kid was concerned watching this was as good as watching a cartoon. Darksiders: Genesis ... It's not what I thought it was going to be; not entirely sure what I think yet. Luigi's Mansion ... Hate the controls, loving the atmosphere...

    Your Favorite Game Ending

    Probably not my all time favourite, but the first thing that came to mind FFIX ... It was syrupy sweet. Just thinking about it is enough to make my teeth rot.

    Shows you wish had just one more season

    I'm gonna be "that guy" and say Firefly. Based on the movies and comics I'd say that they had a lot more planned for the show and I wish they had a chance to end the show gracefully. Also, Galavant. Not everyone's cup of tea but I [email protected]#$ing loved every minute of it.
