Re: 1977 Game System Reviews

One of my favorites to look at is the Radio Shack catalog archive which has scans of virtually every single Radio Shack catalog published between 1939 and 2011. http://www.radioshackcatalogs.com/ Pretty interesting to look at the ones from the 70's and 80's to see the vintage PC equipment and other ...

Re: NFL 2K (Dreamcast)

NFL 2K on the Dreamcast was really good. I remember playing it for hours with my cousin. Even better was 2K1 which was the first console game we played online - and it played really well considering it was on a 56k modem. As an aside, I recently pulled out NBA 2K for my son (who is 12) so he could s...

Re: Sears Tele-cade Games

Maybe add in an "Also known as" section for each review with multiple names. Some games have more than two names so putting them in the title of the review can get a little unwieldy. For example: Concentration (Atari) Review text would go here... Also known as: Memory Match (Sears) Hunt an...

Your thread has really taken off! Great stuff.


On account that the Microvision was only on the market for 2-3 years and there are only about 12 games, I'd say it was not very profitable at all for MB :D

Re: MICROVISION (1979) - World’s First Handheld System - Review of System and All 12 Games

I own a few Microvision consoles and several games (dating back to the boxed one my father gave me - which was his own console). Unfortunately, all of mine have fallen victim to the LCD screen rot basically rendering them mostly unplayable. There was a period of time when one of them worked well and...

Re: Trivia: Sega Master System

Did you know there were I believe four versions of the Master System released in the US? Version 1: Model 1 with BIOS copyright date 1986 Upon startup with no game inserted, you are taken to an instruction screen for inserting a cartridge. Pressing up and both buttons on the controller brings you to...

Re: Atari Box update

But the games have to be actual games that are not available elsewhere. For example, I don't need this to play 2600 games when I can do that on a Flashback which is 1/5 the price. What would be cool would be a system that could play the entire Atari lineup (e.g. from the 2600 through the Jaguar) emu...

Re: Best Sega Genesis Soundtracks?

My favorites in no particular order are:

Streets of Rage
Streets of Rage 2
Revenge of Shinobi
(all of these were done by the same person I think)

Early EA games:
Road Rash
Lakers vs. Celtics
NHL Hockey
(later EA games moved away from the heavy guitar-laden music)

Re: End of Xbox?

I am probably one of the few people who do not yet own an XBox One (or PS4 for that matter). My XBox 360 is still supported and I can find new games (I just purchased NBA 2K18). I am not really an avid enough gamer to really go for the latest and greatest. As a collector (and I do have an extensive ...

Re: 2017/9/1: NES: Goal!, World Cup Soccer, Totally Rad

It's almost an unfair comparison but if you are looking for 8-bit soccer action, you can't do much better than the Sega Master System port of FIFA. Plays basically like the Genesis version. The late (e.g. mid-90's) SMS releases in other countries; notably Brazil, are pretty good.
