Video Chess

[QUOTE=videogamecritic]Are they still enjoyable, or is the only thing left their novelty value?[/QUOTE]<br /><br />Depends on whether you enjoy chess games to begin with -- but if you do, then sure, there's something worthwhile about all of them.<br /><br />Actually old chess carts can be more fun t...

2015/1/27: Dreamcast: Worms Armageddon, Xtreme Sports, Worms World Party

Nice reviews! I've been looking forward to the Xtreme Sports one in particular. I can't argue with your criticisms, but I enjoy it myself -- and man, is it a <em>beautiful</em> game! If you spend some time playing similar games on PlayStation, N64, or Saturn, and then fire that one up, the differenc...

2015/1/18: Odyssey 2: K.C. Munchkin!, Demon Attack, Amok!

The O2's sound hardware is a big shortcoming, but The Voice goes some way towards addressing that. Playing Smithereens with The Voice is a must -- the commentary is hilarious.<br /><br />The pre-defined character set is also a big limitation, but also a strength since it allows for more sprites onsc...

I'm glad you're glad! <img class="emoticon bbc_img" src="/images/boards/smilies/biggrin.gif" title="Big Grin - :D" alt="[biggrin]" /> And thanks to scotland17 and jake3492 for sharing their thoughts. I agree, the excellent multicart is a great option for the Odyssey 2, but you'll often need man...

2015/1/18: Odyssey 2: K.C. Munchkin!, Demon Attack, Amok!

Great to see more Odyssey 2 reviews. I don't know if you realize this, but you're actually quite close to finishing out the US library. From what I can see, this is what's left, but only the ones in bold are non-educational titles:<br /><br /><div>Computer Intro           &n...

2014/5/31: Game Boy: Arcade Classic 4: Defender/Joust, Lion King, The, Marble Madness

[QUOTE=Captain_Crunch]Why review so many mediocre Game Boy games, while there are so many great ones?[/QUOTE]<br /><br />I think the VGC does us (and the world) much more of a service by reviewing the lesser-known titles than by rehashing the greatest hits that every single review site has already c...

Legacy PC/Mac gaming

2014/5/31: Game Boy: Arcade Classic 4: Defender/Joust, Lion King, The, Marble Madness

[QUOTE=Greisha]Does the Game Boy Marble Madness have the same stages as the NES / Arcade iterations?[/QUOTE]<br /><br />To belatedly answer this question, it's missing the last stage. In fact, it just loops back to the Beginner race (Level 2) after the Silly stage (Level 5), so there's no ending. I ...

2014/12/28: Saturn: Chase HQ Plus SCI (Japan), Galaxy Force II (Japan)

Nice! I've been looking forward to that Galaxy Force II review for ages. Scaling sprite games like the arcade versions of Galaxy Force II and Thunder Blade are so aesthetically pleasing, even beautiful in a way. Somehow they look both real and beautifully stylized. I don't get the same feeling from ...
