2015/4/1: Atari 2600: Cosmic Commuter, Gravitar, 50 Shades of Grey

[QUOTE=videogamecritic]Here's a new set of Atari 2600 reviews for your reading enjoyment.  Comments welcome.[/QUOTE] Finally, someone who has the guts to tell gravity where to stick it. It's been holding me down for way too long, and I'm not going to take it anymore. And that high score of 17,3...

2015/2/19: Wii U: NES Remix

Hmm...Not sure if this review is one of the Critic's best efforts, and I'm not saying that because I disagree with the score.  First of all, I don't think the basic concept of the game is explained all that well.  The whole point is to complete each so-called demo as fast as possible and y...

Alienblue still around?

I just wanted to let everyone know that I contacted Alienblue and that he did respond to my email. He seems to be doing reasonably well, just dealing with the same old problems of an ancient computer and dial up internet. Nowadays, he pretty much only plays DS and 3DS games (currently playing NES Re...

Super Empire Strikes Back (SNES)

[QUOTE=videogamecritic]I remember being thrilled about this game in 1993, but today its flaws are pretty glaring.  First of all, I don't remember Hoth being so teeming with life!  Creatures relentless pelt you and push you off narrow ledges.  Slowdown is omnipresent.  They really...

2015/1/15: Atari 2600: Glacier Patrol, Byte Before Christmas, The, Stay Frosty 2

Has anyone else found a secret bonus level in Stay Frosty 2?

Also, I'm kind of regretting not also ordering The Byte Before Christmas.  Bell Hopper sounds like the kind of thing that would be right up my alley.

Alienblue still around?

I haven't emailed Alienblue in several months (what can I say, I'm not the best pen pal) so I can't say how he is doing. I actually wanted to write him around Xmas but never got around to it. I'll try emailing him soon and report back...

Best and worst Wii games? 2014/15 Edition

[QUOTE=HardcoreSadism]Kind of boring list.[/QUOTE] Thank you for chiming in, Negative Nelly. What, exactly, could he have done to make this list more exciting for you?
