Re: Teens retro gaming. 360 Back To The Future. Gamestop Score!

Give the 14 year old time. He will come around someday. No, don't get me wrong, he will never care about your Atari or your NES or your Genesis. But someday he might just long for the games of his youth, just like you do now. And his retro gaming system of choice? Well, the Playstation 4, of course!...

Re: Plagiarism?

Critic, just a heads up... I just noticed that when using your mobile site on my iPhone, your reviews can be copied and pasted. I remember that you removed this feature from the desktop site years back due to plagiarism from a someone copying and pasting your reviews onto their site. Not sure if pos...

Re: I have never played A Legend Of Zelda Game.

Half of me wants to suplex you for not playing one of the most important series in video game history. The other half of me wants to high five you for not playing one of the most overrated series in video game history. All half-kidding aside, the old 2D games are much better games than anything post...

Re: The other E.T. games

Interesting. I didn't even realize that there were E.T. games for TI/99. Are they all just prototypes or did any get an actual release? I bought an Atari XEGS a month or two ago, and bought E.T. Phone Home with it based on the VGC's review. Sounded interesting in his review, but I haven't tried it o...

Re: Most Nostalgic Soundtracks?

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is the only game where I loved the music so much while playing it that I actually bought the soundtrack on CD. As far as games with real songs, there's a few I've really loved over the years, including Crazy Taxi, the old Tony Hawk games, GTA: Vice City, and Jet Gr...

Re: What parts of Retro Gaming take up your time?

Very interesting topic. The older I get and the less free time I have, the more I find myself enjoying the other aspects of retro gaming besides playing. Especially searching for games and buying games. Sometimes I wish there wasn't so much to collect, because it's truly an endless hobby. And it onl...

Re: Hunt the Wumpus (Ti99/4a)

Very interesting read. The TI99/4A is the first vintage computer I ever bought for my collection, as I found one for cheap at a flea market about 15 years ago. Funny thing is.... I've never hooked it up! I don't even know if it works. And I have 20 or 30 games for it, but, funny thing is, I can only...

Re: 2016/2/7: Commodore 64: Blue Max, Raid on Bungeling Bay

Good stuff. I played Blue Max for the first time just a couple weeks ago, but the Atari version. Bought an Atari XEGS for my collection and, based on the Critic's review, I made Blue Max one of my priorities. Really enjoyed it. How does the C64 version stack up against it? Any preference?

Re: Any Gizmondo owners? Help needed.

Alright, follow up time guys. I didn't recall anyone here having a Gizmondo, so I made my original post as a long-shot hope. But I've found some answers, so I've decided to post a follow up here, because there is so little information about the Gizmondo online that I think it's important that I rela...

Any Gizmondo owners? Help needed.

I recently bought a Gizmondo on ebay. Like most of the few Gizmondos on ebay, it came with no battery. Apparently batteries for these things are nearly impossible to find. As a result, I bought a Gizmondo AC adapter, thinking that it would work fine plugged into the wall. Unfortunately, when I tried...
