Re: Issue with PS2 reading PS1 games

While I unfortunately can't help much with how to repair this, I wanted to echo what Rev mentioned, that the "disc read error" issue is a pretty common one with the early model PS2s. Back when the PS2 was new, I recall there being a lot of controversy about this issue, because it happened ...

Re: Huge Atari Boxes

Correction to my prior post... it turns out that the XE boxes that I have are smaller than those 400/800 boxes. I didn't realize until I checked at home last night and realized that my Blue Max and Food Fight boxes for Atari XE are smaller than the one you show there. (I didn't measure them, but the...

Re: It took Axiom Verge on the Switch to get me excited about gaming again...

Hmm.. I've wavered on this game for awhile (especially when I see it go on sale for only $10 on PS4), but haven't pulled the trigger yet. Your post here is making think I gotta do it.. I'm a big Metroidvania fan.. but more so the "vania" half than the "Metroid" half (for example,...

Re: Dead Game Servers

Really interesting article. Coming from the legal field, I find these copyright discussions interesting and wish I could lend my time to it. Sounds like good arguments on both sides, but, as a retro gamer, I'd definitely throw my support behind the researchers. I just saw yesterday that the servers ...

Re: Dave’s No Cursing Policy

I completely disagree with what people are saying. The whole concept of "bad words" is laughable. They are only bad because people say they are bad. Words are just soundwaves coming from our mouths. Why ban certain soundwaves and not others? I think there are more important things to be c...

Re: Huge Atari Boxes

Yeah, these boxes look good, but kill my storage. I have a couple boxed ones for my XEGS, including Blue Max, which I bought based on your review. I just wanted to have a couple representative samples. But if I had anymore than that, it would be too much- just too big! Fortunately, at least they're ...

Re: Sears Tele-cade Games

Now I'm leaning towards the single-review/aka model, considering just how many alternate titles are out there. Plus I don't want somebody getting excited to see a game called Race, only to find out it's just Indy 500. Is it possible to have both games listed as separate entries in the big list on t...

Have you tried it yet? As mentioned in my post above, would be interested in any thoughts on it.

Re: Early to Mid 1995

I keep thinking about this time. I haven't really kept any of my old magazines but when I look at old Gamepro magazines on the internet it gets me so excited. In fact, I always remembered SWAT Pro which also had cool stuff. I loved all the uncertainty. It was so exciting to talk about the Ultra 64 ...

Re: 2018/2/18: Playstation: Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII

On the FF8 romance, I fall somewhere between ptdebate and PixelatedGenocide. To me, back when I played it in the late 90s, the romance aspect of the story was not all that interesting. But, the fact that there was a romance aspect to the story was what amazed me back then. Today, video games have go...
