Re: 2017/10/28: Atari 2600: Guardian, Ikari Warriors

Great to see two new reviews of classic-era VCS games! :D The only weird bit is the part in the Ikari Warriors review where you mention "the NES original". While the NES game is probably the best-known version, the "original" is really the original arcade game, of which the NES r...

Re: Best Sega Genesis Soundtracks?

The Genesis soundchip does a great job of what it does, i.e. FM synthesis, and in some ways I think it's aged very well. Comparing it to the SNES chip is sort of an apples-to-oranges comparison. I love SNES music as much as anyone, but for every great soundtrack (Chrono Trigger, ActRaiser, Spider-Ma...

Re: Missing Atari 2600 Reviews?

I know these qualify as ultra-rare, but I'd still like to know your opinion on them: BOMB games. https://www.atariage.com/company_page.html?CompanyID=10&SystemID=2600&SystemFilterID=2600 So far only Atari HQ and Tomorrow's Herors have reviewed one, and they have remarkably different opinion...

Re: Halloween Games?

Dr. Hauzer, a survival horror game, was recently fan-translated for the 3DO. In fact it's the only 3DO fan translation! I'd love to see a review of that one. (Critic, PM me if you want to know where to find it.)

PAL version of Airlock (Atari 2600) dumped; has upgraded graphics -- plus a nasty bug

Data Age's Airlock is a fairly well-known game, and unlike most people (including the Critic) I've always kind of liked it in a "poor man's underwater Pitfall" kind of way. But I had no idea that the PAL version was significantly different, and apparently hadn't been dumped until now: http...

Re: 2017/9/22: Jaguar: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

Glad to see the wave of Pitfall reviews (and re-reviews) begin! I hope you'll be able to review the Sega CD version -- that one gets the best reviews from the Pitfall:TMA aficionados I know.

Re: 2017/9/4: 3DO: Twisted The Game Show

Always glad to see more 3DO reviews, even if it's a re-review. I remember having a modest amount of fun with one of these sorts of games on the 3DO, but I don't recall if it was this or Zhadnost. (Probably it was Zhadnost.)

Re: Nokia N-Gage/Tapwave Zodiacs it the Sega 32X/3DO/Atari Jaguar of portable gaming?

ThePixelatedGenocide, there's always room for disagreement about this stuff, but you don't need to repeat "The 3DO was badly designed" over and over again to us as though you're lecturing a roomful of idiots. Please be civil and courteous; it's not like the world needs more of the opposite...

Re: 2017/8/12: Super Nintendo: Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter

Unholy Night looks pretty awful, I'm sorry to say. Kid Shoryuken on YouTube has a scathing review of it, which I found out about via his review of Shubibinman Zero, another recent release (though dating from 1997) that seems like a far more rewarding game.
