You do know this a retro gaming forum right? It's like, a whole forum dedicated to how things don't stop existing just because they're no longer the newest thing.


Anapan compared the price of PS Vita with Android tablets, I just assumed that meant a new Vita and a new tablet. Not a used Vita price compared to a new tablet price.

Video Game Box Art: The Stories Behind the Covers


Woah, never heard of this documentary. Thanks for sharing Anapan.

Love the illustrations that used to grace the cover of games back in the day and curious about the behind the scenes and the process of their creation.

I learned today that there were 21 Just Dance games released for the Nintendo Wii.

The final one being Just Dance 2020, released in November of 2019.

I've been having an issue attempting to buy games from Xbox Live Arcade lately and am curious if anyone else has run into this issue before. I'm using an Xbox 360, and have tried to purchase a few games, but keep running into Error 80167611, which states something to the affect that there's a problem with my payment method. However, I've tried two different cards and PayPal but run into the same error.

I've tried a few different games and a few different payment methods. Has anyone else encountered this issue with Xbox Live Arcade before? If so, any advice to clear up the issue?

Sony is pulling the plug on the PS3 store so the same might be happening for xbox 360.

Haven't run into it myself, though MS's site suggests making sure your billing address is up to date, including making sure the zip code has the extra four digits on it. They also suggest buying things via the web site instead of on the console if it still won't work.

Appreciate the thoughts on this. I'm gonna try to adjust my account address.

If that doesn't work, I'll look into trying to purchase a game on the site, which I haven't done before, but worth a shot.
