Re: Top Ten Actors of all Time

Fat actors are the best. Jackie Gleason, Chris Farley, and John Goodman. Politics aside, I think Roseanne Barr is a hell of an actress, and I thought that Rosie O'Donnell was great in "A League of their Own". Outside of comedy, add in Sydney Greenstreet, Burl Ives, William Conrad, and Ors...

Re: How Xbox can lose a loyal fan

I don't think we've talked about the Xbox One X yet, and welcome to the boards on your first post. First, the console name sounds like a star ward droid XB1X. From what little I've read, the console is focused on 4k resolution, not improving performance or better graphical settings for 1080p. Its al...

Re: Happy 20th Birthday, GoldenEye

I was mildly surprised this hadn't been mentioned on here - Friday was actually the 20th Birthday of GoldenEye. Whether you love it or feel it's aged poorly (or both!) it is hard to deny the success of this title. Many hours have been (and continue to be, for this fan) invested into this cart. Well...

Re: RCA Studio II (1977) - console and games review - 40th Birthday Bonanza

I see that he lists it as a 1975 release, but it's not considered the first console with programmable carts.. any idea the reason for that? Maybe is it like the Odyssey where the carts were just jumpers rather than being programmable? Its actually different from either Odyssey or later microprocess...

Re: RCA Studio II (1977) - console and games review - 40th Birthday Bonanza

I was actually on Ebay one day when more than one of those PC-50x systems were being listed. I went to our fellow forum member Marriot Guys site http://www.videogameconsolelibrary.com/pg70-pc50x.htm#page=reviews to learn more. You'll see both Sut and I are in the comments below. There are about 7 ga...

This is awesome. Thanks so much for taking the time to review all of thjs.

The is a line of consoles called the PC-50X family that seems similar - Pong Plus, but with controllers.

Re: C64 - Happy 35th Birthday to the Commodore 64

The rival ZX Spectrum does have the ZX Spectrum Next with just such a keyboard. I am not following the Next news, but I believe it was a kickstarter project nearing completion.

Re: C64 - Happy 35th Birthday to the Commodore 64

Stalvern is referencing the Epyx plug and play, a joystick loaded with about 20 Epyx games. Its pretty simple.

What would be nice would bea Flashback that has at least a partial keyboard and many more games.

Re: C64 - Happy 35th Birthday to the Commodore 64

Wasn't this a C64 thread? By Jove, you're right again. One of my favorite memories is playing Elite, but as the C64 Critic wrote in his review, after about 20 hours or so. The gameplay gets 'hamster wheelish'. I guess I just fondly remember those first 20 hours. 20 hours is still a lot lf fun. One ...
