Re: Getaway (Atari XEGS)

"Blocky" is definitely the right word. The game was originally released in 1982, but even then, 800 games usually had better graphics than the 2600.

Of course, regardless of how it looks, I'm sure that it plays well.

All I'm saying is that there are probably better arguments for swearing than trying to completely deny the concept of language.

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? Is this some kind of joke? The entire point of ...

Re: Early to Mid 1995

Do you ever post about anything besides how much you hate the PlayStation? Do you even think about anything else?

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

The Final Fantasy VII review starts with a massive pet peeve for me. Something can be the single most talked-about moment in gaming history, or it can be one of the most talked-about moments, but it cannot be "one of the single" most talked-about moments. That's completely meaningless.

Re: Book Review: The Witcher- the Last Wish

Only 6.5/10 when only one story scored lower than 7/10? Why is that? Is it just less than the sum of its parts?

Also, the author's name is pronounced ahn-dzhray (more or less; "rz" is hard to pin down with our phonemes) sap-kov-ski.

Re: Google removes 'save image'

Also, in a baffling bit of design, it looks like even large images are linked directly in the preview pane, so you can just save them from there without even bothering to go to the actual sites.

Re: Google removes 'save image'

No, they removed the "View Image" button. There is a "Save" button; I couldn't tell you what it does (except that its little ribbon icon turns yellow after clicking), but it's probably tied to your Google account. This corporate gesture means nothing. You can still go to the imag...

Huh. I remember it as being more responsive in the C64 version.

Re: Turrican (Turbografx-16)

You can shoot up. In the C64 version, you hold the joystick's single button for a rapid-fire shot that you can aim in any direction. I don't know if the controls are the same on the TurboGrafx, but that feature is definitely in the game.
