Re: Computer Games 1998-2000

In trying to track down the exact first PC I owned, I stumbled across this bit of archived history: https://archive.org/details/1988-Winter-DAK-Catalog Anyone else remember getting these catalogs and drooling about their 'high tech' wizardry within? I purchased more than one item through these guys,...

Re: Computer Games 1998-2000

I decided to be careful and insert the word "typical" - as in a gaming PC someone may find and purchase from an electronics store. In other words, a PC one could run into in the wild. I am not talking about a niche high end gaming PC built by the enthusiast builder with a bulging wallet. ...

I'm going to have to vehemently disagree with this statement, unless it's a typo and you meant literally the exact opposite :P

Re: 2018/6/19: Playstation: The Lost World: Jurassic Park, The Lost World: Jurassic Park Special Edition

C64, I am sure it is time for you to produce some more reviews. I wish I could argue with you! Unfortunately, due to a series of events that are everyone's fault but my own , I am currently without a working C64. In addition, all my 'spare' units (along with 2 C128's) are in storage thousands of mi...

Incomplete sentence: "eating a guy every now." Or something like that. I can't cut and paste, and my memory is in and out, but you'll see it if you re-read.

Re: Solo (Spoiler Alert)

Based on the numbers, I strongly suspect I'm not the only one for whom "Star Wars Fatigue" was indeed a thing this time around. Now that is misleading. Based on the numbers, the movies are doing poorly. Positing a theory on your own feelings, then extrapolating that to everyone just becau...

Re: Solo (Spoiler Alert)

One would have to explain how Marvel and DC still sell tons of tickets to every movie (and Pixar and Fast and the Furious, etc.) and why Star Wars -- one of the biggest names in all of cinema history -- suddenly hit a fatigue level well beyond those with only 10 movies in 41 years. I think that's a...

Re: Solo (Spoiler Alert)

What I'm afraid is that due to poor box office Solo will be regarded as a failure. I don't think it deserves that. If anything, the mediocre Last Jedi (which gets worse with repeat viewings) probably tarnished people's enthusiasm for the series. Also, why did they rush it out just 5 months after th...

Re: 2018/4/20: Dreamcast: Rush Rush Rally Racing DX, Rush Rush Rally Reloaded

Unless you meant to quote the C64 Critic's "dustbin of console history" comment? I think my comment may have been misconstrued; I love the Dreamcast, I think it was/is a great console that had/has a wonderful lineup of games. What I meant with my 'dustbin of history' was that it had a ver...
