One response to “Hart & Usagi #93: Huge Sprites!!!

  1. “The Future of Gaming”
    – I have about 40 games for our Wii. But, a lot of those are for the kids, and they’ve grown past many of those. I’ll probably do another round of selling off those ones that I know neither I or my kids will ever go back to. There are a few good titles, but the system as a whole isn’t holding up very well in the long run for me.
    – I am liking the PSVR though. I’m not ready to ditch non-VR games, but it is cool. It’s a fun gimmick to go to.

    Loot Box Bill
    – Even if they were agree that loot boxes can be games, but it’s considered gambling so it must be agreed by the ESRB that all games with Loot Boxes are rated AO, and I think you’ll see publishers change their tune. They seem as afraid of AO as movie distributors are afraid of an R rating. They want the T rating. Disney won’t let a Star Wars game go out there with an AO rating.

    Mini Consoles
    – I am interested in the C64 console thing that came out. I don’t think I’d buy it, but I’d like, get as a gift, you know? I am a little sad that the Intellivision Replay consoles that came out several years ago was too early to this fad, because I would like a current-day version of that.

    Comix Zone
    – ‘It’s got a great style and I want to like it, but I don’t. It’s too hard.’
    Yeah. That’s exactly how I feel.
