In fact, they tell, take way more time on the first 5-7 questions b/c if you miss them you will not be able to get a rockin' score. That's actually not the best idea either because although the initial questions do matter more on CATs like the GRE, another factor is that unanswered questions incur ...

It's disconcerting to see emulation brush up so close to real life releases. But you also have to wonder why Cave hasn't said anything. Is it to prevent legitimizing the emulators? I remember Arika asking MAME to hold off on incorporating one of their games several years back (I believe in the Tetri...

Clever bandaging around a tough situation but I'm not sure I should be happy for MAME in this situation. It was great for the developer, publisher, and folks who would buy the games but would any serious gamer even play such a piecemeal version, let alone a mobile port of an arcade game?

Most folks call it the VLX or RAP Premium, like it says on the box. :)

And interestingly, as big as it is, the VLX is still shy of Vewlix control panel size.

While this topic is about the cab, what is the Vewlix stick? The Hori RAP Premium VLX? I don't know anyone who calls that a Vewlix stick, LOL. Then there's the Taito Viewlix control panel that can be used as the top of a custom stick. And the Mad Catz TE and Qanba's faux Vewlix designs don't help ei...

What are you guys talking about? The Hori RAP Premium VLX (can't think of anything else with Hori and Vewlix since the cab deal fell through)? That's been available in the US from the Hori store for $225 with shipping included when they have 25% off sales.

Funny how SF mentions 6 buttons yet they use the picture that shows the earlier 2-button bomp-em version. The original SF was a joke and so is this article.

Well, I'll assume that was a serious post since sarcasm would have more hints. Anyway, it's not necessarily that you have to change your tone but that if you speak negatively, it should be with undisputed facts. For example, instead of hypothetically saying that demographics X & Y are diseases i...

Wow, first serious discussion here in years. :) Siren, you won't find support for your opinion here because it doesn't jive at all with our own experiences with gay folks. I'm also not sure anybody here has thought of crossing their sexuality either so that's different too. From your experience, it ...

I checked out the demo running at TGS. Seemed like typical MMO fare to me. Sort of a disgrace to invoke the name of the legendary SRPG series IMO.

Depends on if you want a good (but linear) RPG, 2 lackluster fighters, 2 average beat-em-ups, or a puzzler (or two?). I'm guessing the puzzle game(s) would be best suited.

If it's a 2D era game involving shooting, it's a shooting game (STG), whether it's a sidescroller, rail shooter, or shmup. Like GP already said, "shooting game" is a wildly diverse genre specification (and is in direct contrast to the micro-separated genres)

SRPGs are "simulation RPGs" (sometimes just "simulations"). Unfortunately, simulation is also used to describe a whole gamut of things from vehicular combat. Early romance adventures were known as romance simulations as well. Oftentimes, folks trying to create slightly more innov...

Make sure to check hand and feet size. Anyway, if Ronaldo got caught, no shame if you do.

Lucky I'll likely never have this issue: no interest in Asians and all the pictures of Caucasian trannies I've seen are laughably obvious.

I wouldn't send anything back until after a dispute has been filed and reached its conclusion. Also make sure you start the dispute so that it ends before 60-90 days are up (whatever your CC's chargeback period is) so that you can get your money back regardless.

If you think it's just you, you may have hid away in a cave these past few years. Everyone from fans to media to JP directors have been agreeing that Japan-developed games are showing stagnation. What's the problem? I think higher production values and expectations are a big cause. If you have to sp...

Shang Tsung is an accurate Wade-Giles romanization but the official pronunciation for his name isn't accurate anyway. Then again, what can you really expect when they pronounce Raiden as RAY-den?
