That's right, the "big Nintendo fan" me finally got my very first Sony Playstation system cheap with my Christmas moneyz. (Though, I've played them prior at friend's/relative's.) I figured I should broaden my gamer horizons, and frankly, I'm a big fan of retro games, regardless how "bad" the graphics have aged. (Frankly, I'll take expressionism over realism any day.)

It's the oftentimes lambasted "Playstation Classic." (To go with my NES & SNES Classic.)
Is it as bad as every Youtuber, and such say?
Honestly, no, sorry Sony-fanboys whom are bashing it, but as somebody who's never played most of the games on it, I've been enjoying it. (Only games for it I've played prior were the GBA version of "Rayman," and FF7 on a friend's system briefly.)

I've even enjoyed some of the obscure/niche games on it like "Jumping Flash," (which Guinness regards as the very first 3D Platformer) "Wild Arms," "Oddworld," and even Namco's Mr. Driller.
Sure I admit, I'd like to of had "Castlevania: Symphony," (never played it, but I'm a huge CV fan) and Crash Bandicoot, (I assume they were excluded, because they're already being rereleased on the PS4.) instead of certain games included, but many of the games on it are still enjoyable, and I actually like it that they included a few obscure ones, and not just popular ones.

Sure it doesn't have as many features as the NES & SNES Classic, (screen settings would've been nice, as a "CRT Filter" would make them look less pixelized) but it does have ONE major improvement over the Nintendo ones.
Using the "Resume Point" does NOT annoyingly override the original main game's save data. (unless you manually save the game) Granted, you only get one Resume point per game this time, (basically giving you two separate saves per game) but sense nearly every game already uses save data, you don't really require it like some NES games, and such. It has come in handy for games like "Jumping Flash" though. (I love that game now.)

I've especially enjoyed the popular Metal Gear Solid, and FF7 games too, (now I see why those are so popular, and I'll definitely be playing as Snake & Cloud in SSBU if I ever get a Switch.) I'm surprised those reviewing the PSClassic don't give it any kudos for having those games on it, or cult-classics like "Oddworld" on it. (Guess 'cause by now, nearly every PS fan has played those to death, and don't care to revist them.)

It's kinda a shame to hear the PSClassic has been unsuccessful. (The Gamestop employee told me they can barely sell them, probably due to the bad reviews, and such) That, and Nintendo stating they officially don't want to make a N64 or Gameboy Classic which probably means these collectable plug-and-play mini recreation consoles are coming to an end soon. Don't expect a mini N64, or PS2 on the store shelves anytime soon. Or even an improved Playstation Classic.
(Hopefully, Sega will at least eventually release the new Sega Genesis they've been teasing.)

That said, while I'm not going to deny it has flaws, it honestly isn't as bad as all the Youtubers, wannabe-reviewers, wannabe-AVGNs, and such say. My only major beef with it honestly was it's original MSRP of $100, which is too much for a "plug-and-play" system aimed at more casual gamers. I'm lucky to of gotten it nearly half price, but Sony kinda shot themselves in the foot, by charging so high for it.
That, and the USB power cord didn't come with a AC adapter as the box states. (Though, my NES/SNES Classic ones work perfectly on it.) Just buy one of those multi-USB AC adapter plugs for it, which isn't hard to find.

That said, I think it's more worth it around the NES/SNES Classic's price, and not as bad as some say, and a nice way to revist the 32-bit era in all it's low-polygon, or pre-rendered glory. I'm going to go play "Jumping Flash."

The 3DS Eshop has a pretty cool retro arcade game on sale cheap (half price around 4 bucks) this week called "Psycho Pigs." It’s a remake of a Japanese Jaleco 1987 arcade game "Butosan" a game I never heard of. As a retro game connoisseur, I decided to try it out, it’s actually pretty cool, and has interesting unlockable outfits, and behind the scenes art & arcade documents included.

It has online mode, but I have nobody to play that game with. lol Somebody else buy it! Only bad thing about it, is there’s no download play option in multiplayer.

The funniest thing about the game is, it’s Eshop art & logo makes it look like an edgy, gritty, violent modern game, but it’s really a cute retro arcade style game about cute li’l pigs throwing bombs at each other. lol

As some of you may know, I'm a huge fan of Nintendo's Star Fox series. (Should do fanart of it sometime.) I actually bought Star Fox Zero & Guard recently, (cheap) and honestly they’re not as bad to me as some say.
Zero’s controls take some getting used to, and some boss-only levels are a bit tedious, but I actually enjoyed it despite it’s flaws. The simultaneous viewpoint on the TV and GamePad are interesting, and honestly the motion controls aren't bad if you use the control stick to move at the same time for more precise shooting.

I see some also bashing it for being a "reboot" acting like it's a "remake" when it's really not, and some even accuse the SF series of "rebooting" all the time, which is odd, 'cause they haven't done a storyline reboot in decades. Arguably Mario & Zelda reboot their settings more then SF ever did. (How many times has Hyrule's entire landscaped changed, or had one-shot characters? Nobody complains about that.) It's nothing unusual in Miyamoto games.
I liked it’s more classic Star Fox look, and feel, as well, as seeing the original designs for pink Katt Monroe & the Star Wolf team. (Never liked their redesigns in "Assault," & "Command") as well as seeing Andross return as the series villain. (I found the final battle with him quite impressive, and his voice is cool.)

Frankly, I always felt the Rare/Namco GameCube games deviated from the usual style of the series. After the odd directions some of the other games took both in gameplay, and story-wise, like having Fox fight with a magical staff in a more fantasy setting, (I'm aware that SFA wasn't originally a SF game BTW) fight BORG-like grimdark aliens, (with several characters almost being killed of for extra edgeyness) or the romance drama, all the weird fanfic-like or downer endings in SFCommand. (Not bashing those games, just pointing out they had flaws too, and people used to bash them as much as they do "Zero" nowadays.)

I feel bringing a more simple "Stop Andross's evil schemes" classic style simple story is welcome frankly.

It felt more like an almost "Star Fox 64 2" game to me, rather then a "reboot," (some gamers confuse "story reboot" with "game remake) but still not quite as good as a "SF64" sequel should be. It’s not as bad as some say though. Some act like it’s unplayable, but I feel they just didn't give it a chance. When gamers hear "motion controls," they automatically think, "Ew casual kiddy game!" (I actually saw a guy say he's giving up on Nintendo, for making this game, and too many motion games, which is ironic, 'cause there are many button controlled games for WiiU, 3DS, and Switch without motion controls.)
The game honestly can still be played without constantly relying on the motion controls part of the time, but they can actually be an interesting helpful feature at times.
Frankly, I found changing the button controls to mostly relying on the control sticks more annoying, (as I oftentimes forget how to barrel roll) but they aren't bad when you get used to them. Still wish they had an option for SF64 style button controls, as opposed to the analogue sticks.

Despite the control flaws, I enjoyed the vehicles, and the "Walker" mode taken from SF2, is a nice compromise to keep Fox in his Arwing, as being on-foot in games like "Star Fox Assault" was oftentimes tedious, due to how small you are.
The new Gyrowing is very interesting, and controls like an RC toy. A bit slow, but fun once you get the hang of it.
Training mode has some interesting unlockable features & challenges too. Unlocking the classic Arwing with a Fox Amiibo is also a nice love letter for classic SF fans. Some of the alternative level routes are a li'l hard to unlock though.

So overall, not a perfect game, but not a bad one. I was much more annoyed by "Star Fox Command's" DS controls.

As for "Star Fox Guard," I rather enjoyed it, and I feel it's a rather underrated & creative defense-style strategy/puzzle game. It's nice to see a new type of SF game that doesn't stray too far from the sci-fi shooter aspect.
Y'know, I don't care what anyone says, I like the new SSB, and it was a good first day E3 presentation. Also, I'm glad to see Star Wolf back. (Liked him better then Falco.) Love Zelda's new adorable "Link Between Worlds" look, (recently got that game) the Inklings look fun, (love their Splatoon stage design) Daisy's nice, (even as an "echo-fighter," never understood the hate over them) and ZOMG Ridley is badass! Hope Cappy replaces Mario's FLUDD though. (As much as I love "Sunshine," the FLUDD is rather outdated, and hasn't had a rerelease sense.)
So apparently, TruTV is airing a documentary titled "The Problem with Apu" regarding the "Simpsons" character as some kinda offensive stereotype. (Isn't Apu one of the more nicer/friendlier/saner Simpsons characters?)
While I can kinda understand some of their concerns, and criticisms, it'd be like me making a film complaining about how cartoon characters like Hank Hill, Bunnie Rabbot, or Applejack make people think all of us "southerners" sound like them, are like them, and such. Not to mention, I'm part Native American myself, and I could go on about how everyone gets things wrong about "American Indians," but I dunno.
What do you guys think?
