Yay for Ys Origin breaking free of its PC prison at long last! Now I can finally play it. :D

GameCenter CX is actually available for free streaming on TubiTV, under Retro Game Masters. I noticed it there a few weeks ago.

No mention of those Halo Wars 2 ads? They're pretty funny and a bit of a switch from your average game ad in the West.

Good catch! Just a small handful of episodes, and it's the lackluster dubbed announcer, but that's still a nice sampler.

I seriously hope Nintendo will at least consider making a Game of the Year Edition of Breath of the Wild sometime in the near future. This "Expansion Pass" has really dampened the excitement for it, since all of the DLC looks like content that should have been in the game right from the start.

Edit: Alright! 5500 posts! Smile

A part of me continues to hope that Crunchyroll or a similar service will pick up the show and bring us an official way to watch an increasingly massive array of these as-yet-untranslated episodes, but such hopes have—so far—been in vain.

Enough red tape to wrap up an arcade cabinet, I fear. Given the amount of intellectual property depicted, along with the sheer length of each episode in need of translation, Gamecenter CX is most probably doomed to remain a fansubbed classic shared amongst the retrogaming community.

Well your best bet is to get Yakuza Kiwarmi (sp) and hope Sega remakes the 2nd game.

Interesting that this column would come along now as I have recently been getting back into PC gaming and spending a lot of time playing really old favorites like Wolfenstein 3D and Blake Stone: Aliens of Gold as well as watching a lot of videos about retro gaming on YouTube.

Hell,Yakuza 1 and 2 don't even need PS2 Classics releases,they got actual HD remasterings released for the PS3 and Wii U a couple of years ago in Japan,and of course they never brought them because doing a copy-and-paste of the english text that was already done for their original PS2 releases and throw them on the PSN and eShop would be too much work for a small compay with so little money like Sega...

Don't get your hopes up. DotEmu is a mediocre company with exceedingly mediocre releases.

I'd offer a conservative guess that about half of Steam's current library is basically unplayable garbage, and that percentage ain't gonna get much better as a result of less oversight


Rolling Eyes Unplayable Garbage is completely relative.
We REALLY don't need big brother deciding what is and what isn't "Good enough" to play.
Every system has bloat. Not even console certification stops subjectively bad games from coming out and it sure as hell doesn't stop AAA releases shipping completely broken.

What does need fixing is the Marketplace and the way it works and is presented.
Valve keeps making band-aid patches to something broken rather than fixing it.

That wouldn't be too much work it'd be too little i.e. lazy.

even if there are a thousand Bad Rats and Bloody Boobs out there every week


Oh man, I initially read that as a single game titled, Bad Rats and Bloody Boobs, and thought, "wow, that's just gotta be some kind of awful rogue-like".
