Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

Saw "I Bury the Living" this weekend. Society : Most of the movie is a cartoonish, blackly-comic take on The Stepford Wives/Invasion of the Body Snatchers in a 80s high-school movie setting. It's not bad, but what makes the film remarkable is the final 20 minutes of twisted, highly-invent...

Re: Jelly Monsters (VIC-20)

And this is the real reason for the Great Video Game Crash of '84: Computers had finally become cheap enough for the average person to afford, & they could do as good a job (better!) than video game systems. Computers factored into it. The glut of bad console games was another reason. Still, no...

Re: Cloud Gaming will replace consoles?

Even if bandwidth isn't a problem, latency will always be (physics). When people press a button they expect an immediate response. Anything less makes for a very poor gameplay experience. Even modern displays always have _some_ latency compared with a CRT. It's why people struggle to beat Mike Tyso...

Re: Atari VCS is a scam!

To try and be balanced there is a lot of rumour swirling around. Some game commentators on YouTube are sometimes akin to gaming versions of SJW’s always looking for a crusade or something to get up in arms about. They are NOT a source of citation. Let’s wait and see is my humble opinion. Even Atari...

Re: 2018/5/20: Game Boy: Tetris, Centipede

I'm not as familiar with Game Boy Tetris.

But when I play the Nintendo NES version, I need to start at level 9. Starting at the slowest speed it's so slow that it's almost unplayable for me.

Re: 2018/5/2: Wii: The Monkey King

Let's hear your thoughts on my latest Wii review. This looks like a remake/update of Cloud Master for the Sega Master System. You might want to review that one as well. I've played the SMS game and it is challenging. There's a real "Gradius syndrome" where the situation is hopeless once y...

Re: Best and Worst Console Designs

The other day I was marveling at what a non-intuitive console the PS4 is, which is when I got the idea for a pair of new specials: Top 10 Best Designed Consoles and Top 10 Worst Designed consoles. Maybe you guys can help me with this! I think of design as three basic factors: - ergonomics/ease of u...

Re: 2018/4/26: Dreamcast: Gunbird 2

Great game that is very challenging if you don't use any continues. I can survive maybe two or three stages before game over. I've loved this game on MAME for years.

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

Is Shaq Fu worse than Karate on the 2600? http://atariage.com/software_page.html?SoftwareLabelID=259 How about RCA's Swordfight arcade game, based on the same hardware which powered the Studio II? Fight for Life on the Jaguar? That game where you were a pre-rendered robot? Never played any of these...
