The Derailment of the 3d Genre

3D definately got derailed...in 1982 with raster graphics. Real 3D is vector. Tail Gunner, Star Wars, Battlezone...now that was true 3D.

Masked Rider (Sega CD)

Just playing around while working on the hardware tonight, and enjoyed a bit of this Dragons Lair'ish game. I think this game merits a few icons. A skull for scary in tapping fears that a kid walking home is set on by an adult predator, and can end up being throttled to death in a parking garage, al...

No Man's Sky

Thanks for bringing this up.  Interesting. It sounds likes its coming to MS, just a timed Sony exclusive.<br /><br />Its like Rescue on Fractalus 30 years later.  Funny 'there is nothing new under the sun' sometimes even in technology.  Once this type of 'procedural' thing was done fo...

How your gaming changes over the years

Tabletop always been way beyond those staples, just as video games are far more than shooter and Madden. Think of all the great tactical games of Avalon Hill or FASA or whoever made Star Fleet Battles. Add in the worlds of tabletop role playing, from sword and magical fantasy to time travel to zombi...

How your gaming changes over the years

[QUOTE=Teddybear]It would be like Burgess Meridith breaking his eyeglasses in that famous Twilight Zone episode......"This isn't fair - but there was time now [/QUOTE]

How your gaming changes over the years

How has your gaming changed as you've gotten older?  Here are some comments from other threads to kick start it. <br /><br />[QUOTE=FinalLapTwinkie]Funny thing being mentioned a lot in other threads is time to play. This generation of consoles and handhelds look very impressive but what happens...

Snow Gaming

Keeping the Star Wars theme, how about the Echo Base on Hoth on the Battlefront series.    Mount up a tauntaun, and take that enemy spawn point!  Its also got a lopsided contest where you can Hunt the Wumpus...I mean Wampas.
