Re: Sega Sports Pad

So as I was putting together my Top 50 Worst Games list Great Ice Hockey (Sega Master System) was brought to my attention. This game requires the Sega Sports Pad, but it works terribly! So I revisited the game and now I'm wondering if the ball needs to be oiled or something? I don't want to mess it...

You saw the user rating. He has it as a C-.


Haha, thanks. You're right. C- makes a lot more sense.

Hipsters were really into Heavy Nova before it sold out.

Re: Heavy Nova Sold Out!

I was leafing through an old EGM magazine (April 1992) and noticed an ad for Heavy Nova for the Sega Genesis. This is one of the worse games I have ever reviewed, and it was the first time I had seen an ad for it. The ad had a picture of the box and the words SOLD OUT in big white letters. Undernea...

Re: 2017/12/17: Genesis: Coffee Crisis

Not to mention that C+ is still a positive score. It would translate into something like 7.5 out of 10 which isn't bad at all.

Using original hardware upscaled via Framemeister may have less lag than emulation. I don't know.

Also, N64 emulation still isn't very good.

Re: First Generation Gaming

I've never played the original Odyssey but it looks like 99.9% of its appeal was the novelty of manipulating objects on a TV screen. The light gun/rifle looks pretty neat though. The gun games could be amusing for a bit.

Re: 2017/11/14: Atari 2600: Assembloids 2600

It's nice to see innovative titles still being released on a 40 year old system.

I'm not a fan of the title. It makes one expect an Asteroids clone.

Re: Ikari Warriors (Atari 2600)

I find it funny that the 2600 version already sounds better than the NES port. It's a shame how Ikari Warriors on the NES turned out. There are similar games on the system such as Heavy Barrel and Jackal that are far better. On the other hand, being able to beat NES Ikari Warriors without the conti...
