Re: Scotland! O2 help!

While I am no Scotland, my O2 is the only gaming system that I use an old VCR to run it through and it works well (just in case you do not wish to attempt to open up a 40 year old electronic device.) Best of luck!

Colecovision Star Wars: The Arcade Game

I made a relevant discovery today - Star Wars: The Arcade Game is FULLY operational with the Coleco Roller Controller. Problem is (like most other Colecovision items) the game really plays no better with it - that track ball is junk to begin with. In fairness, NO port of this game on any system is w...

Re: Review Wish List

It would be cool to have the "holy grail" cartridge games for the Intellivision reviewed someday - Spiker and Stadium Mud Buggies. And maybe that awful Super Pro Decathlon game too (which ranks amongst my most regrettable video game purchases off of Ebay.) Even though Beamrider has been re...

Re: STAR WARS EPISODE VIII / Star Wars ranking

This thread was a great read with my morning coffee. I'll be chuckling all day long about the "Family Circus kid" remark!

Re: River Raid (Atari 2600)

Please try River Raid's first cousin.....Activision's H.E.R.O. Instead of going up a river, you'll be going down into caverns. This game should be on everyone's top-10 list of 2600 games....... I am chiming in because I currently have my Colecovision hooked up and played a few games of H.E.R.O. unti...

Re: C64 - Happy 35th Birthday to the Commodore 64

I used to steal DOS boot disks from my high school computer lab and take them home to reformat them for the C-64. Between my friends, we used to get so many great games for free. And it was just so damn easy![i] [/i] The teacher finally got wise to the diminishing number of disks and started having ...

Re: Ray Harryhausen (And Stop-Mo in General.)

Big fan myself of his movies that employ what must be a painstakingly long and tedious process. I have watched Mysterious Island (1961) at least 10 times. The bees honeycomb scene is still my favorite.

Re: Mystic Castle (Intellivision)

Put me down as one of the few gamers who thinks the knight's speed is just right for the game. If he was faster, wouldn't Thunder Castle be too easy? Intelligentvision does amazing things with Inty games! His hacks of World Championship Baseball and Slap Shot Super Pro Hockey are amazing upgrades Go...

Re: Oil's Well (Colecovision)

This is an unique (and very underrated) game that I have sometimes wondered if you were going to ever review.

Re: Old Mechanical Games

How about The Junk Yard with that steel ball of death?
