Community Questions:


Anyone have any thoughts/insight/information on Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls?  I tried the Contra game on iOS and wasn’t feeling it.

(It has been confirmed for iOS, tvOS, and Mac, and the release date is listed as 'soon')



You've probably already talked about something like this but one question that comes to mind is this: As a kid, I grew up playing the Sega Genesis and one of my favorite games was Streets of Rage (especially 2). The recent release of Streets of Rage 4 was so so good and I couldn't be happier with the results. They gave me a modern take on the genre but in a way that respected and called back to the originals in so many ways. What is a retro game or series you would like to see return with a faithful sequel like Streets of Rage 4?



what's a game that you grew up with that not alot of other people free up with or others didn't like?




 called the PS2 "possibly one of the greatest consoles to ever grace the market"

Now, it's no secret that I'm pretty down on the console. Just my opinion.

But can anyone name something about the PS2 that would warrant this title BESIDES it's lifetime sales?


Solo Something

I am curious how do you all balance your game time between the retro games each of you pick up each month with the Switch games that come out?



Question for the community; favourite collection available now on Switch?
