Re: Ending to the Saints-Vikings game

Yeah, it's up there for me too. One of the best endings I've ever seen. Especially coming from the Vikings.. it would have been less shocking if Drew Brees and the Saints pulled that off. But something about the Vikings feeling like an underdog, along with their years of failure in the playoffs, alo...

Re: Bally Astrocade multicart

By the way, I'd also add that I agree with your general rule of not reviewing the simple games coded in BASIC. I like that you stick to official releases, along with released homebrews, prototypes, etc., rather than posting a review for a simple game that doesn't exist anywhere except on the multica...

Re: Review Wish List

Shadow Complex (limited physical release for PS4; digital on 360) Let me second this.. Still my all-time favorite downloadable game. I was blown away by this game when I played it on the 360 in 2009. It's a 2D shooter and Metroidvania game crossed together, like a mix of Metroid, Contra, and Unchar...

Re: Bally Astrocade multicart

The Astrocade is one that's always eluded me, so I'm no help there, but I will look forward to the reviews. The Astrocade seems like one of the more niche systems on here, so hopefully someone here can help. Speaking of droughts without reviews, I was just noticing that Game.com has the longest by f...

Re: Gex series

I do agree about them being cookie cutter platformers in terms of gameplay, with the only distinct gameplay touch being the ability to crawl upward and upside-down on walls. No doubt, a large reason for the games standing out and being successful was Gex's personality and Dana Gould's quips. It's no...

Gex series

"It all started so simply; I had just finished my usual morning routine of Nude Funkercise..." So begins Gex. The Critic's recent review of Yooka Laylee got me thinking about old school platformers, and the Gex trilogy popped in my head. This was one of the biggest platforming series in th...

Re: 2018/1/14: Genesis: Aero the Acro-Bat, Aero the Acro-Bat 2

Your reviews have me intrigued, especially for Aero the Acrobat 2... I own the first one on SNES and Gen, and remember playing it on SNES as a kid. Never tried Aero 2. I notice that Aero 2 is a little easier to find on the SNES, where it sells for about $30. Anyone tried Aero 2 on the Gen and SNES, ...

Re: All these daggone wires!

That’s a heck of a console collection. Question to owners of The Master System. I make pretty decent money but a lot of financial obligations. Is the Master System worth picking up? Personally it's one of my lesser played systems, but it does have a decent library and can be worth owning. Like with...

Re: Review Wish List

Pokemon Snap (N64) : Critic, I have to second Retrology, I think you'd be pleasantly surprised by this one! I know you're not a Pokemon fan, and neither am I, but Pokemon Snap is a totally different game (in fact, ignore that "Pokemon" is even in the title). Check out Retrology's recent r...

Re: Dark Souls Remastered

Count me as another who's interest is piqued by all this Dark Souls talk. I don't think I'll have the patience or pain-tolerance for it, but I do plan to give it a shot. I have the 360 version ready to go, whenever I find a good weekend day to try it out.
