Re: new book! Going too fast?

It's difficult to overstate just how much of an improvement your second version is (in other words, it's huge!). The opening of the first draft would, if I were an editor, get an instant rejection; the opening of the new version is infinitely more intriguing and would at least get my attention.

Re: 2018/5/31: Atari 2600: Super Cobra, Super Cobra Arcade

I seem to recall having fun with Super Cobra on the Atari 2600, but I'm not sure whether I'm confusing it with the Intellivision port, or even the Vectrex version of Scramble. Still, I doubt it's a game I'd think deserves a grade as low as F, but that's just me. Speaking of the Intellivision port, a...

Re: 2018/5/12: Arcadia 2001: Doraemon (Japan), Monaco Grand Prix

Yes, great to see more Arcadia 2001 reviews -- keep 'em comin'! :mrgreen:

BTW I think Monaco Grand Prix wasn't released in the US -- right? If so it deserves an import icon.

Re: The Worst Fighting Game Ever Is Back..?

Shaq Fu isn't that bad, especially on the Genesis (the SNES version is definitely worse, though at least it's also shorter). The concept is silly and the gameplay is laggy, but at least some effort clearly went into it and the music is decent. There are tons of fighting games that are far worse, lik...

Re: New Stuff on Atari Age

I really wish I could get a discount. *sad face* Have you talked to Albert? He might be willing to work something out if he knows you're certain to review the games in question and link back to AtariAge in your reviews. (Let me emphasize that I'm not speaking for him or on his behalf, nor would I p...

Re: Baseball in Decline?

The answer is this: people do watch and enjoy baseball in all its glory WHEN THE GAMES MATTER. Lots of people tuned into the World Series, which had a compelling matchup and great games. I’m one of those that says the games feel too long, but I’ll gladly watch a 4 hour game when something is on the...

Re: 2018/4/3: Arcadia 2001: Parashooter, Golf

Great to see more reviews for a pre-crash console like the Arcadia! I was wondering why I hadn't heard of these games, but then I realized they weren't released in North America -- is that correct? Or, at least, this rarity list seems to think so: http://www4.ncsu.edu/~awwatkin/ATARI/LISTS/arcadia.h...

Re: 2018/4/1: Playstation 4: Distracted Driver

Does anyone know when the 3DO port of Distracted Driver is coming out? I hear it's a real upgrade over the CD-i version, which had the animations done overseas and suffered as a result. Awfully nice of them to support these older consoles.

Re: Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

Is Dragon's Curse worth it? Worth playing, or worth buying? I'm the wrong person to ask about the latter since I do almost all my TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine gaming via flash cart, and I don't really know the game firsthand as a player. But if you loved Wonder Boy III on the SMS (as I see you did), the...

Re: Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

Inspired by the recent TurboGrafx-16 reviews, I added the remaining games (US releases only) to the first post. As of this writing there are 47 unreviewed games left in the US library. Some aren't unexpected -- like SimEarth, Might & Magic III, or the Sherlock Holmes games -- but it's more surpr...
