Definitely promoted me to cancel. Although it’s not as nasty as the companies like LRG that obviously grab cash and earn off of it for months before intending to deliver.

Noticed this as well. I used to pre-log into PayPal on another tab then click the PayPal button on their site in the cart, which would push me right through with my order. Clicking the PayPal button today took a long time and reverted me back to the cart page for a Credit Card payment. I had to manually select PayPal from the Payment Options list there and go through the PayPal process twice. Reason I missed Revenant Dogma this morning. Luckily, got it this afternoon, but they still hadn't fixed the issue.


Exact same for me in AM.

I remember buying fukun Wayne Gretzky hockey it was so dry on the N64 front.

"THerE wAs NOthInG eLSe tO pLAy"

Literally heavy hitters on that system and the first smash. By you logic, Nintendo probably shouldn't have ported Zelda OoT and MM to the 3DS physically because there's no way that would sel- oh wait

The real junk is making a blanket statement when it seems you've never touched a n64.

I will agree $100+ for the turok games are too much though.

Bought N64 on launch day. Owned most of the titles at one point or another. Turok was overly lukewarm in reception by the big players, such as EGM when it released. I recall EGM giving it like a 6.5 and game pro was trying to sell the shit out of it for years- gave it 100% lol. I worked at Toys r Us when the game finally released after over a year of hype. We had 12-13 total N64 titles in Feb 2017 so it sold by default. Star Wars came out in December 1996 and it was impossible to find. Two months later Mario Kart then Turok a week or two after.

So ya, there was not much else to play on N64 and that absolutely allowed Turok to fill a void. Being almost 20 at the time maybe part of the reason it failed to impress me. I absolutely agree with 6.5/10 or so.

I can’t believe we’re discussing buying 100$ Turok physical reruns. Only gained traction the first time because there was nothing else to play on N64. Junk.

The final fight cab has a great lineup. Those are good titles that have replay value at least to me- the other multicabs are one and done. Arcade Strider is definitely a gem.

Yeah. I remember people holding their breath for GoW. Even saw a video reveal of reviews with developers crying tears of joy that they didn’t let down the franchise. Hearing similar rumblings on this one especially with the embargo.

Zaku is 100% correct. Do not waste time learning cheese- the correct way to play the game is mastering the deflect and realizing that the goal is filling posture bars. You learn the patterns, attack through guards to get deflects, then deflect until the bosses use a kanji you can jump on, avoid or mikiri.

The best advice ever is to go into the fights a few times and do not touch attack at all. Just block and parry. There is really no short cut. Just persist and you will see that everything starts slowing down and you’re a badass.
