Welcome to the James Bond Rewatch! We will be watching all 24 of the canon James Bond movies ahead of the 25th film: No Time to Die. The rules are simple.

Veknoid's Reviews - Superhero Round-up

in Movies Discussion, last active on on 01 May 2019

I've been meaning to write individual reviews on some of the superhero movies that debuted after Infinity War, but haven't found the time. So here are some fun-size mini-reviews, organized from worst to best. I hope you enjoy! Venom (2018) Some trailers are misleading, but others are representative of the final product. Such is the case with Venom, which looked lousy from the get-go. With a...

Super Mario Maker 2 OR a Brand New 2D Super Mario Game

in Nintendo Discussion, last active on on 07 March 2019

One of the highlights of the February Nintendo direct was Super Mario Maker 2, which looks to bolster the mechanics of the original with a bunch of new bells and whistles. My question for you guys and gals: if forced to choose, would you rather get Super Mario Maker 2 or a brand new 2D Super Mario platform game with no user-generated content? What's more important to you: level editor tools or...

Depth or Breadth in Gaming Experience?

in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 21 January 2019

@TruckOSaurus and I made a New Year's resolution to make more threads, so here's my first of 2019 :-)  Is it more important to you to have depth or breadth of knowledge in video games? In other words, is it better to have a deep, complete understanding of a particular series or game, OR is it superior to possess a wide, general comprehension of a large variety of topics, genres, etc.? When...

Which Franchise Would Suffer Most From a Battle Royale Mode?

in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 27 June 2018

Battle Royale is a big game mode these days. After the success of PUBG and Fortnite, a lot of gaming companies are jumping on the bandwagon. Even Call of Duty, once a taste-maker, has become another in a long line of followers. My question to you: which beloved franchise would be most ill-suited to battle royale? Which series would hurt the most by adopting this trending game mode -- assuming it...

in Gaming Discussion, last active on on 19 May 2018

Wright, Shad, and I were chatting just now about gaming categories. If you had to divide games based on a set of criteria -- without getting too deep in the weeds -- what would it be? We decided on the not-perfect-but-good-enough buckets: Western A (Super Meat Boy, Undertale) Western AA (Darksiders, The Surge) Western AAA (Grand Theft Auto, The Elder Scrolls) Japanese A (Downwell, Cave...

Which New Article Series Would You Prefer?

in Website Topics, last active on on 14 July 2017

I've been brainstorming a few new series of articles for the site lately. Before I moved forward, I wanted to get the perspective of the community here. Here are the options: A) Retro RewindThis series would review retro games, probably 2nd-5th gen games. This would follow a similar structure to reviews of modern games, with a simplified "buy, rent, or skip" verdict at the end. B) Re-ViewThis...
