Re: 2018/1/9: Playstation: Polaris SnoCross, World's Scariest Police Chases

Good stuff; never heard of these. I wonder if Polaris SnoCross was riding the coattails of Sled Storm, since that was pretty popular at that time and came out a year earlier. I imagine that good sales for Sled Storm inspired a few similar games during that era. World's Scariest Police Chases has tot...

Re: Playing PS1 games on the PS2?

Thanks for that list ptdebate - I actually never realized that there were compatibility issues with any PS1 games on the PS2. But otherwise, I'd agree with ptdebate - since the PS2 has actual PS1 hardware in it, it shouldn't be the cause. If anything, I notice that PS1 games often work better on the...

Re: Bloodborne (PS4)

All this talk about Dark Souls/Bloodborne around the forums lately is really making me want to pull Dark Souls off my shelf and give it a shot. However, while I am an RPG fan, I have a feeling I'll be in the Critic's camp on this one and won't like the series that much. Maybe I'm a wimp, but getting...

Re: 2018/1/7: Atari 2600: Ski Hunt (Europe), Ski Run (Europe)

Liking these skiing reviews lately! Old school skiing games are great, and they usually hold up really well. You asked about rarity, so I pulled out my trusty Digital Press guide. Hasn't been updated since 2002, but I still trust the rarity scores. In Europe, Ski Run has a rarity of R4 out of 10, so...

Re: 2018/1/2: Neo Geo: Zed Blade, Ironclad

Technically - Ironclad is a prototype. The game was only officially released in Japan as a CD game then on the Wii Virtual Console where hackers then extracted the data then burned ROM chips so they could be played in cartridge form on actual arcade hardware - Galloping Ghost Arcade unveiled the ga...

Re: This months's free PS+ games

Thanks for this thread! I always forget to check for the free games, so I appreciate the reminder and the list of games! Sony makes a big deal of the free games when trying to get you to sign up for PS+, but then hides the feature deep within the bowels of the PS Store after you sign up. If you don'...

Re: Aggressive Inline (PlayStation 2) – Rolling Replication

Thanks for the review. I was a big fan of the Tony Hawk games in the late 90s / early 2000s, along with other alternative sports games like it (SSX comes to mind). Aggressive Inline flew under my radar back then, but I did buy it recently, because I learned that it earned very good reviews back in t...

Re: 2018/1/2: Neo Geo: Zed Blade, Ironclad

A side thought... Having never tried any emulation, I'm ill-informed on the subject, but I wonder: with games reviewed by emulation, could some of the complaints not actually exist in the original version? Using Ironclad as an example, slowdown issues are mentioned in the review, but is it safe to s...

Re: 2018/1/2: Neo Geo: Zed Blade, Ironclad

Hey, new Neo Geo reviews, thanks! I agree with you on Zed Blade -- I have it on my multicart and played it for a bit one day... seemed like a very average shooter by Neo Geo standards, so I didn't spend much time with it. This is the first I've heard of Ironclad. I was hoping that it was on my multi...
