I remember I had a big, old TV when I first got my 360 and when playing Dead Rising on it, the font was almost comically unreadable. I just thought that's how the game was designed. When I finally got an HD TV, it looked normal. Was blown away.

That's why I stopped playing Dead Rising because it was unreadable. I was stupid enough to think "Hey, maybe they fixed the font in Dead Rising 2....NOPE!

On the plus side, I can rediscover games I have because it will feel almost brand new now.

I feel like I was trapped ion the past and transported into 2009.

Thats one of the reasons I gave up on Dead Rising as well. So glad I have a 42" HDTV now so I can read everything .

I've been browsing the CoolRoms site for SNES games, goddammit, I see so many I want to download.... my little ROM "collection" is now...

Megaman X
Donkey Kong Country
Rock n Roll Racing
TMNT: Turtles in Time
Ken Griffrey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball
DBZ: Hyper Dimension
NBA Jam Tournament Edition
Justice League Task Force (used to rent this from Blockbuster all the time!)

Reading that list makes me miss my days of Nintendo Power (R.I.P.) so much.

Took a trip down memory lane last night and played Ken Griffey Jr Presents Major League Baseball.

I was the Mariners, taking on the CALIFORNIA Angel's.

Brought a tear to my eye, just like the Mariners in real life...

Mariners - 1 (or 2? I forgot....)
Angels - 21

:')

Borderlands 2. Never could get into it in the past but I've soldiered past the part that made me quit before and now I'm having a blast.

That (and the first one) were some games I always wanted a crack at.
