Re: Intellivision Relaunch?

If Tommy asks for my advice, and I'm sure he will, this is what I would recommend: Use a similar design as the original Intellivision (complete with wood trim). Even if the system is designed for emulated downloaded games, allow it to function offline and accept real Intellivision carts (but don't m...

Re: Obsolescence of mobile devices by online updates

This is the problem with planned obsolescence. The manufacturers love it because it gently forces people to buy new hardware and re-buy software. I'm glad (and surprised) to hear your games still work. The thing is, there's no guarantee that they won't break after the next "upgrade". The m...

Re: Thunder Storms!

Yeah we were driving another couple from Baltimore yesterday when all hell broke loose. The roads were like rivers and we kept having to turn around because there were unpassable pools of water (usually with a car in the middle). A lot of people I know had flooded basements but we got lucky.

Cratermaze (T16)

The first time I played this I was so bored. It's a scrolling maze game where you dig holes to trap monsters. Ho-hum. Then I cranked up the difficulty (to "difficult") and it was a revelation. Suddenly it was like a single-player Bomberman style survival game. All sorts of special items sp...

Should Loot Boxes Be Regulated?

I was reading this article about Loot Boxes being regulated and the industry pushing back. https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/05/trade-group-prez-loot-box-regulation-challenges-our-freedom-to-innovate/ On one hand, I'm generally against the govt trying to tell us how to run out lives. On the other ...
