Good Lego games?

     I see that Steam currently has a 75% off sale on all Lego games: Batman, Superheros, Lego: The Movie, Lord of the Rings, etc.   Having never played any of the Lego games, are any of them worth picking up at roughly $5?  Are they all pretty much the same just i...

Remembering the Xbox

     Thanks for the info!  I have ordered a copy of the Splinter Cell game but still need to look at getting the bigger hard drive.  Yeah, it would be much quicker and easier for me to just order one - and don't think I didn't seriously consider it - but I thought it mi...

Remembering the Xbox

I may have missed it in the thread, but is anyone here intimately familiar with modding an Xbox to put various MAME and emulators on it?  I'm looking for a fun side project, and I'd like to take one of my old Xbox consoles and replace the hard drive with a 1TB drive (or so) and put a bunch of e...

Profiles Suck

[QUOTE=ptdebate]<br class="mceContentBody " id="tinymce" />I take it you don't like scores either then, right? Achievements are just that--a metric of your mastery of the game. Earning them is a challenging metagame that many gamers take joy in--just like traditional scores.[/QUOTE]<br /><br /> ...

Terra Lander

     There is a nice vector-graphics throwback game on Steam right now called Terra Lander that I think fans of the original Lunar Lander (or fans of vector graphics based games) would really enjoy.  It's only $5.99, and you can even download and try a free demo first if you...

What if Atari's Pac-Man was better?

     I have to admit I'm only vaguely aware of this 'video game industry crash' anecdotally from people talking about it here and from general internet searches.  I owned and played an Atari 2600 console from 1981 forward, but started to get into games on the Apple IIe ...

The 8-bit Home Computer Users Thread

[QUOTE=scotland17]<br class="mceContentBody " id="tinymce" />Bummer.   A three day weekend, spent some money, got myself psyched up, and my C64 died [cue mournful bugle].   Now I am in that sunk cost dilemma.   Do I take my life lesson and move on, or run where the...

The 8-bit Home Computer Users Thread

     I think whether you fall into the C64 crowd or the ZX Spectrum fan base seems to depend almost entirely on <em>what you actually played</em> as a youngster.  Also, where you happened to live. People can argue hardware limitations or software tricks until the cows come h...
