2012/6/19: Intellivision: DK II, Turbo

<p>Fellow Intellivision lovers - you simply have to get this game!<br /><br />My copy came in the mail yesterday.  It is amazing.  The Critic nailed it in his review: it is what Donkey Kong 3 should have been, it truly is a seamless continuation of this classic and above all the control is...

Age VGC

Well said.....<br /><br />I too feel many of Dave's comments and reviews capture the essence of gaming at home, the arcade or the local 7-11 in the 1980's (I'm 40).  This site has also been a great point of reference in helping me see what I missed out on the first time around.  Thanks to ...

2012/6/19: Intellivision: DK II, Turbo

Yeah, thanks Critic......just when I thought I was completely done buying classic video games for the rest of my life you give DK II an A+. I always thought Donkey Kong was pretty good but found it boring after a while due to it having only four boards. Give me Miner 2049er any day over the Kong! Bu...

New videos on console review pages

I was finally able to sit down and watch all of them.  Thank you for adding this feature as it's a nice touch for each system review to have a sampling of the graphics of their games.<br><br>Especially after viewing the 5200 and Colecovision -  Zaxxon for the 5200 looks incredibl...

5200 Gremlins...I'm a little disappointed

First let me say this game is a blast to play.  Beautiful graphics, nice music and as the Critic opined it really does capture the spirit of the movie.  It is a lot of fun to go "Kill Bill" on the Gremlins with your sword.  On the higher levels the challenge does increase in intensity...

I really like Atari 5200 controllers

Man, I have been overdosing on the 5200 this 3-day weekend......and have to say that these contollers are as bad as advertised.<br><br>Miner 2049er, Pitfall II, Q-Bert, H.E.R.O. and Frogger are virtually unplayable with the 5200 stick.  And these are ports that many consider amongst the best re...

Tonights episode of Community

It's funny....the only night I plan to watch TV (other than NFL football and Sunday night cartoons) is Thursdays.  But I only watch "The Office" (in decline) and "Parks and Rec" (on the upswing - Amy Poehler is such a Babe!).<br><br>But I haven't seen a single episode of "Community".  Perh...

New Typo Thread

For your review on Wizard of Wor on the Atari 5200 you listed the year published as 1981.  I'm pretty sure it should be 1983 or 1984.  Or 1982.  Just not 1981.

God I need to get a life!

2012/5/6: Genesis: Bubsy 2, Hardball 94, Hardball 95

Nice reads about the Hardball games, especially '95.  It was pretty cool to hear Al Michael's voice on it.  However, I shall forever be tainted by how awesome the C-64 Hardball was for us back in the 1980's - something the Critic referred to in his review of the first Hardball ga...

Best pack-in game for a new console...

I am quite sure this topic has been addressed in yesteryear.....<br><br>But my vote would have to be for the Atari 5200 and Pac Man.  Anyone purchasing this system in 1982 must have been blown away at the arcade-quality graphics of this port.  I have played a few games of it tonight and wa...
