Re: Retro Freak/Amazon delivery

An update already! After the headache of setting up my Retro 5, setting up the RetroFreak was a DREAM. Very few prompts and good user interface. At one point it said an "update" was available for my included controller adapter, which gave me pause. I'm glad I said yes because it instantly ...

Retro Freak/Amazon delivery

Got my Retrofreak today on my front step today, but get this - it wasn't in a box! It was just the Retrofreak box with an address label slapped on it! I know Amazon has been slacking off with their packaging, but C'MON now! Fortunately I was able to remove the sticker by SLOWLY removing it. Not sure...

2017/9/22: Jaguar: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

I updated this review, upping the grade from D to C-.
Considering the system, this is respectable. Thoughts?

Addams Family (Genesis)

I got a case of deja vu playing this - it's just about the same as the SNES version! But despite having inferior graphics and sound, this Genesis version is a lot more fun. The controls feel better and the difficulty is lower. I find myself making a lot more progress and having a good time. Full rev...

Re: Halloween Games?

Has anyone tried The Evil Within for the PS3/Xbox 360? Looks like its sequel is coming out.
I missed the first one but looks like it got good reviews.

Re: Halloween Games?

Excellent suggestions guys! Thank you! This is the reason why I posted this thread. I just ordered Oggie's Revenge off ebay, and Captain Tomaday is on my Neo Geo multicart. I will certainly review both and determine if they make the cut for the Halloween special. My current list of Halloween games I...

Re: Cartridges making a comeback?

Sut -
I don't think think my Switch has EVER been on the Internet. And it runs like a champ with no system or game update prompts.

Re: Cartridges making a comeback?

I think the point is that gamers are reaching a breaking point with the current paradigm of huge downloads, constant updates, and endless installs. Older gamers actually remember when you could pop in a game and play right away, and I think many realize the old way was better. The clueless media is ...

Re: Toys R Us files Chapter 11

Toys R Us jumped the shark when they got rid of the glass booth up front lined with wall-to-wall video games.
It was the place of dreams! Only head honcho store managers had the magic key to enter it.
If I managed to get into one of those booths back in the day I would still be there.

Re: Cartridges making a comeback?

Yes, I was referring to Switch games as cartridges.
To me, a cartridge is any solid-state memory device you plug into a console to load a game.
Naturally the Switch carts are tiny (it's 2017 for Pete's sake) but they serve the exact same purpose.
