Dare to Play the Game

Posted in: Dare to Play the Game, News and Opinions by Michael Durr on April 23rd, 2008

Michael Durr has been reviewing movies for the better part of fifteen years now. He primarily enjoys thrillers, sci-fi, animation and even a little courtroom drama. His favorite films include Escape from New York, the Goonies and anything with Alyssa Milano. When he’s not praising Kurt Russell as the greatest actor of our time or scratching his head over a David Lynch flick, he’s spending time at home in Texas with his lovely wife, Lori and his amazing son. How they put up with him is a mystery, but even Basil Rathbone doesn’t have the time to solve that one.

    Thanks for the “shout out”, Ked! I currently own 10 Wii games, only 1 of which could be deemed “shovelware” (Williams Pinball – a guilty pleasure), one that’s a “party game only” (Warioware), and one that’s not really for me (Endless Ocean – for my wife). That leaves 7 knock-down, drag-out A+ titles, which is still substantially more than the average attach rate for the Wii console. And I consider myself a “conservative-core” gamer in that I don’t buy very many games, especially when compared to the number that is available.

    River City Ransom was one of my faves growing up, and I gladly spent the 500 Space Bucks(TM) for the VC version. I have played the GBA version, but didn’t like it enough to finish it. The controls felt very slippery and didn’t capture the same feel of the original. For $5, you can’t beat the NES version on VC.

    Yes, you should duck. Cast Iron skillet to the head might leave a small mark. 😛

    River city ransom on GBA, very nice. 10 times better that origional… if it actually supported same multiplayer mode.

    Nothing is more fun than this game’s perfect engine. Definately needs a redefined version with “Viewtiful Joe” slow-mo & speed-up and amped up graphics, zillions of customization modes and massive multiplayer brawls!!!

    … if only the people that actually play games made games maybe some decent games would actually comeout once in a while that would put this
    “commercial” gaming back to exclusive sports series.
