Re: So when did home video games become "Arcade Perfect?"

This is a hardware question. Light gun games - shooting deer, zombies or aliens - is still very popular. Yet the arcade can use tech - old cheap hardware - that home gamers disparage and won't use. A console is a system of hardware - not just the box but the controllers and the output hardware as we...

Remind me of all the 360s light gun games again?

Re: 2018/5/31: Atari 2600: Super Cobra, Super Cobra Arcade

That's part of it, but its also 32k and better tools. Spice Ware would know all the details. From the Atari Age discussion: Thanks! Yup, as DH said, it's [programmed in] CDF which is basically a more feature-rich version of DPC+, which of itself is an extension of the DPC chip developed by David Cra...

Re: 2018/5/29: SG-1000: N-Sub

As for the review itself, I liked its brevity. That your submarine is slow could be gameplay masquerading as realism, as this was really how it was for submarines - surface vessels move quicker since they are probably longer, larger engines, and have far less drag. Those 'mines' you dodge are probab...

Re: 2018/5/29: SG-1000: N-Sub

First, awesome to review an SG 1000 game.

Second, Sega and submarine games have a long history going back to 1966s electro mechanical Periscope.

Re: Intellivision Relaunch?

The idea is that the Big Three are expensive, and there should less expensive (and less capable) alternatives. People are ponying up for retro consoles, so could thefe be a niche for an active one?

Sounds familiar, but maybe it could work.

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

And games are much longer than movies; I think of them more like TV shows. I don't need to watch all 200+ extant episodes of Dark Shadows to tell you that it's cheap & slow but pretty entertaining if you like Gothic horror, do I? That's a really good point. I guess it comes down to how much con...
