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.

Re: 2018/5/12: Arcadia 2001: Doraemon (Japan), Monaco Grand Prix

Thank you for reviewing Doraemon, I've been curious about it for a time. I'm under the impression that the shows most popular with young children; that could explain the relatively easy game. Random Doraemon factoids: Doraemon isn't a real cat; he's a robotic time-traveling cat from the future. For ...

Re: 2018/6/17: Saturn: Minnesota Fats: Pool Legend, The Lost World: Jurassic Park

Question: The PS1 version of The Lost World also works as a music CD; you can put it in a CD player & listen to the game's score. Can you do the same with the Saturn version?

iOS 11 can't transfer photos to PC

Unless you download iCloud. You used to be able to transfer pictures to your PC with a USB cable. Discussion on Apple's website: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8118990 It looks like there's a way to turn that feature off, but I'm not sure it'll let you transfer pictures you've taken with it on...

Pockemon - A Pokemon Spoof

Wrote this awhile back, & I'm a bit sheepish about posting it. It's a parody of the 1st episode of Pokemon. Some of it may only make sense if you've seen the show & researched the franchise's history, or it may just be silly enough to be fun on its own. I don't know. Anyways, here it is: Poc...

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's version of The Lost World, online for free; it's old enough for the copyright to have expired in the US.

Re: Jurassic World

My earlier responses about The Lost World were a bit over the top, & rude. Forgive me please. On Jurassic World ... A lot of stuff in Jurassic Park seemed real, like the tech needed was just around the corner. ("Interactive CD-ROMS!") Even cloning dinosaurs seemed possible; the scienti...

Re: Jurassic World

....How did you not know that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote a novel called The Lost World? It's not exactly obscure. How does someone miss all of this? Not knowing that Doyle wrote The Lost World is like thinking atari is just a term from Go. The Lost World is fairly popular and definitely Doyle's b...

Re: Jurassic World

Didn’t know Doyle had a book by that title. I’m working on a thousand page Sherlock Holmes collection, and it’s great! I love it. ....How did you not know that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wrote a novel called The Lost World ? It's not exactly obscure. -The novel was one of the first to show a world wher...
