Re: Early to Mid 1995

Die Hard Trilogy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmGDz0F8e94 I dunno; to me it looks like a slightly more advanced version of what Atari was trying to do with Black Ice/White Noise. (Visually; they're different game-play styles. And Black Ice/White Noise was never finished, so it's not really a fai...

Re: 2018/2/24: Bally Astrocade: Castle of Horror, Sea Devil, Bowling

Thanks for the reviews. Castle of Horror sounds like an interesting and fairly original game; too bad it didn't quite come together. Still, I'd like to see someone re-work the basic concept. It just sounds so interesting.

Re: Favorite Banner?

I'm thinking "Retro 2" or "Atari."

Re: Looney Tunes Blu Rays

Re: Dead Game Servers

I don't usually play online games, however some games have achievements that require you to be online. That's a problem when you are going for a platinum trophy on an older ps3 game, and a trophy requires you to play an online match when that server is no longer online. This is true for NBA jam: on...

Re: Huge Atari Boxes

I didn't realize until I checked at home last night and realized that my Blue Max and Food Fight boxes for Atari XE are smaller than the one you show there. (I didn't measure them, but th...

Re: Early to Mid 1995

Even bad graphics are art; they're still "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination." Source: https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/art They're even in a visual form. ;) I suppose we could go with a more critical definition of art; art must express a view...
