Re: Atari Lynx and Sega Game Gear Portable reviews

I am a fan of both of these systems, but the Lynx is one of my favorites. It was revolutionary at the time. The 16-Bit graphics chip and the scaling really made it stand out over the Gameboy, and even most of the consoles at the time. One experience that I thought was so cool at the time was playing...

Re: 2017/1/31: Sega Master System: Phantasy Star

Sorry it took so long to reply. Yes, it's my original battery. This game seemed really impressive when it was released. I still love it.

Re: 2017/1/31: Sega Master System: Phantasy Star

This is easily my favorite Master System game. The first- person dungeons made quite an impression in the 80s. I still have my original cartridge and play it from time to time. It was one of two Master System cartridges I bought with my own money as a kid.

Re: Handheld Generations

I feel that the Microvision merits a mention as well. It was the first handheld with cartridges. The cartridges contained the operating system, and the console provided the screen, sound, and circuitry. It came out in 1979.

Re: Every Good System Dies Twice (a.k.a. Rule #1 of Game Collecting, longplay edition)

I have long thought that this I true. I got into Atari collecting in 2007, toward the tail end of the Atari collecting era. In the ensuing years, I have noticed a steady decline in both interest and widespread availability of Atari games and systems. Atari is now an afterthought to many, and forgott...

Re: 2016/10/19: Intellivision: Dracula, Tutankham

I can see both sides with Dracula. It's one of the most interesting pre-NES titles out there, with great atmosphere and some cool idiosyncracies. However, it does seem to wear thin after awhile, with not much new or interesting in later levels. Still, I probably would have kept it at a C+, if only f...

Re: 2016/9/8: Colecovision: Turbo, Defender

These are 2 of my favorite classic videogames. As a kid, I was blown away by just the idea of Turbo- an arcade racer with scaling buildings, just like driving through the city. The Colecovision port is absolutely fantastic. Defender is great, although my favorite port is the Atari 8-Bit version, fol...

Captain Silver is fantastic. I didn't know about the pixie power ups. No wonder I never made it very far

Re: 2016/3/13: Commodore 64: Blue Max 2001, Super Zaxxon

Super Zaxxon is the sequel to Zaxxon, and it was a separate arcade game. It's not much different from Zaxxon, but it is a separate game
