Glossy or Matte?

I agree how a gloss gives a "premium" look to things; especially in the case of the PS3 variants, but I prefer the matte finish. Could just be from growing up with the matte textured plastic of my old favorite Atari products. Matte textured finish on controllers is a welcome feature in my opinion. H...

Cool Atari Flashback portable

I just got a Yobo FC16GO (portable SNES) and if Atari had made a portable flashback like that instead of a console, I would have bought it instead. A portable Atari would be to cool.

Old PC games.

I have an old Dell laptop I keep around for old games like Space Quest series, Space Ace, Leisuresuit Larry, Amazon, Yukon, and Oregon Trails, the Neverhood, M.U.L.E. Black and White, and a hand full of DOS games. The lappy has a neat modulal design so it is super easy to swap hard drives so I have ...

Any Sony Trinitron television owners here?

Another Trinitron joins the family. I'm still looking to a 39 inch WEGA on the cheap but when I found this 32" Trinitron at my local Goodwill for $6.99 I had a hard time not bringing it home. This set will replace my Toshiba that is now going to my sister in law. Some one in Japan should be happy kn...

Mobile site issues?

Mobile site works fine on my PSP and LG android phone but I can't find the Commodore 64 reviews on the mobile site. I had to switch to the normal site and deal with the eye strain. Where is the C64 stuff on the mobile version?

Atari 2600 or 7800?

I apologize in advance for my long winded response....I think the 7800 is a better machine. The controller ports on front of the console (2600 in the rear) give an extra foot of cord length, the push button power and reset work better, and I've had better luck getting games to "boot up" on the first...

Toughest game you've beaten

Battletoads. Brutal. Just brutal. I still have yet to beat the Genesis version but I can still walk proud knowing I beat the NES one. Props to m0zart for bringing up Siren on PS2. That game is still beating me up and taking my lunch money.

What's the oldest console you've ever played? (Emulation doesn't count)

Atari VCS-CX2600 was my first console but I still have my Coleco Telstar Alpha (pong clone). Got the Atari 800 two years after the 2600. The few games we had for the 800 blew away the 2600 but the 2600 still got more play time.<br /><br /><img src="http://img19.imageshack.us/img19/1810/colecotelstar...

Lollipop Chainsaw..a rental?

I say rental, but my wife says buy, so we compromised and bought a used copy on Craigslist for $35. The game played through too quick (6hrs) and I didn't feel the need to play it again but my wife has still been playing it and trying to get all our friends to play it. We got the PS3 version, I have ...
