Re: Super Retrocade Review

Savage,
What kind of HDTV are you using? I have a Samsung.
If you have a CRT TV available, you may want to try it to rule out the TV.

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

These two new RPG reviews, written by ptdebate, fill a gaping hole in my review collection.
Let me know what you think!

The Toys That Made Us (Netflix)

I watched the first three epi...

Re: Playstation One: Jewel or long boxes?

Here's a photo I just took of the three long box varieties (although might be hard to make out). http://videogamecritic.com/images/ps1/ps1_longboxes.jpg The first is the standard all-plastic box like the Saturn games had. Not very durable, but I liked these. You felt like you were getting something ...

Re: Sears Tele-cade Games

Yeah I'm thinking about adding all the Sears games. The problem is, there's like 50 of them! http://www4.ncsu.edu/~awwatkin/ATARI/2600/AtariSears.html So do I want to add 50 mostly-empty reviews? Now I'm leaning back towards the model of just using the "aka" in a single review. Especially ...

Re: Playstation One: Jewel or long boxes?

Fantastic post Matchstick. Thanks for taking the time to write it. You put a lot of heart into that post. Bravo!
There were actually several iterators of the Playstation longbox before they switched over.

Re: Governments do not like loot boxes!

First of all, trusting just about any poll is a mistake. Next, the poll was of "tech influencers" of the game industry who have an clear agenda. I don't believe these results for a second.

Re: Sears Tele-cade Games

Oh okay I see.
I think I'll go ahead and add the missing Sears titles as separate reviews since that seems to be the preferred method.

Re: Sears Tele-cade Games

Right now there are very few mentions of the Sears versions, but I'd like to change that so at the very least they get a mention on the site. Having them as their own separate reviews is problematic. It doesn't look very good and it tends to screw up the "if you like this, try these" algor...

Re: Super Retrocade Review

I would also strongly recommend changing the video format for each game to "original". This really compresses the screen area and makes the animation look a lot smoother.
