And it's sold.

Not sure I trust what John Hartman says; some of it seems to contradict the actual proxy agreement.

Nearly an hour of music from Pokemon Red/Blue. Makes my heart warm. :'-)

Re: New Stuff on Atari Age

I would like to see a review of Phase Zero. AtariAge isn't the only company which sells it; a couple of old Atari Dealers are still around, & they stock it. (Best Electronics, I think.) Not sure if there are differences between the versions; someone mentioned a patch to fix the game & make t...

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

Saw "I Bury the Living" this weekend. A man who's elected chairman of a cemetery discovers people die when he marks their plots as occupied. Interesting, but with a dissapointing ending. Well made. Some scenes are stagey, but that's normal for a 50's film, and they pull off some interestin...

Re: No campaign in new Call of Duty?

Can't read the article with scripting off; not turning it on to do so. Was this story by a staff writer or an independent contributor? From your post... Rumors are rumors; I won't make much of 'em without more evidence. I can see why a developer might drop offline portions of a game; if most of thei...

When did every application program become a RealPlayer clone? Did anyone ask for that?

Re: Billy Mitchell's Scores Removed, Including Donkey Kong

Actually, I probably wouldn't remove the score. I'd just record the challenge to it. That way someone could run a query on my database using whatever standard of proof they decided was good enough. GET SCORE AND NAME WHERE PROOF = VIDEO AND GAME = DONKEY KONG AND CHALLANGE = NONE I might be taking t...

Re: Video Game Dogs

To answer the original question: Sims 2 + Pets has dogs & cats. Not much of a game, but you still have a few objectives you're supposed to accomplish, so it counts. Most people I knew ignored the objectives to see what the Sims would do when tortured. ;)

Re: Billy Mitchell's Scores Removed, Including Donkey Kong

I agree there must be a penalty, but I see this as going too far. I'm more concerned with the records being accurate than with any punishment for bad actors. I suppose I see the records as history in-and-of-themselves; deleting a fraudulent record would be a correction; deleting a legitimate record ...
