I have to admit, I played and finished this game for the first time only last year. But I didn't even give RPGs a thought until a few years ago (my "gateway drug" was Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars). I have since gotten caught up on most of the genre's major NES and Super NES releases, thanks to Wii / Wii U… » 4/03/14 12:54pm 4/03/14 12:54pm

Oddly enough, I was at a GameStop today and the clerk refused to sell an M-rated game (Titanfall, I think) to a kid who couldn't have been more than 12 years old. The boy was pleading and trying to negotiate and the associate wouldn't budge. "You need a parent with you to buy that," over and over. I lack that sort of… » 3/28/14 5:06pm 3/28/14 5:06pm

I concur with other posters regarding Virtual Boy: I really loved mine, even with all its flaws. I guess you could say it was an interesting idea with a really bad form factor. The controller was excellent; most of its games were very good; the 3-D effect was actually better than the 3DS in terms of depth. I wish I… » 3/08/14 8:18pm 3/08/14 8:18pm

I came here to post the same thing. I've played and beaten the game at least a dozen times by now, and while it has been 15 years since I completed the Water Temple for the first time, I don't remember it being all that difficult. The only part I can recall getting stuck at was in the tall vertical chamber in the… » 3/07/14 3:40pm 3/07/14 3:40pm
