Re: Lynx Vs. Game Gear

Design: Game Gear. Not nearly as wide and a far sleeker look. Graphics: Lynx, it's scaling is fantastic, and the colors are far more vibrant. Absolutely mind boggling for a 1989 handheld system. Audio: Lynx. The Game Gear had the master systems audio, which means it sounds like a medieval Japanese c...

Re: Best Mixed Albums Ever?

Invasion of your privacy by Ratt is a KILLER album to listen to with headphones. Seriously. I've been enjoying that album for 30 years now.

Re: Nintendo SNES Mini Classic

I'm hoping and praying this is true. And if it is, they ought to put the good stuff on there. PilotWings, Super Mario All-Stars+Super Mario World, and Contra 3 would be a good start.

Console releases messed up.

I noticed something while going through reviews today. I noticed that the TG-16 and Sega Genesis were in the 90's category, and the Dreamcast was in the 2000's category. At first I thought "Well, those systems were released late in the last years of their decades". But the Intellivision is...

Re: R.I.P. NES Classic (Thanks, Nintendo!)

Well, it was likely due to ROM piracy. Nintendo just doesn't like that stuff. They've pulled games from the eShop on the 3DS in the past due to allowing homebrew software. In fact, I'm willing to bet if it wasn't for ROM piracy, Nintendo wouldn't pull the plug!

Re: Yooka-Laylee (Playstation 4)

Played a bit myself. I like how the worlds are crafted. Everything blends so well, and what would normally be just background stuff in other games is completely explorable here. The controls are also very tight. The whole game screams quality, but something is missing. I don't know what it is, but s...

Re: What inspired you to collect retro games?

Back in the mid 90's I too was on the net, and realized that the local newspaper had it's own "craigslist" type deal going on. I remember seeing ads for NES games. Parents who's kids had left for college or other purposes wanted to unload all of this stuff. I went from house to house for 3...

Re: Sanford and Son (Odyssey 2)

Clever review, especially since it's on a system nobody would expect it to be on. You got a chuckle out of me, thanks! xD

Re: Games you like that everyone else hates?

Fighting Force 2. The Dreamcast version is lame, but the PS1 version has nothing inherently awful about it. It's rather smooth playing in my opinion. Lots of varied locations, tons of weapons, and satisfying action. It's like Crusader: No Remorse on the Saturn, but updated for PS1. People compare it...

Re: You know you're a retro gamer when

............When you eyeball games at thrift stores you already own.

...........When you have dozens of games you bought just to have, and haven't played them.
