Re: Sega - 15 years later

I'm going to give my 2 cents (A nuisance, who sent, you sent for me?). For many years, I commuted back and forth to Tokyo for work, and early on Sega seemed to be all the rage in Japan. However, that excitement slowly waned over the course of a few years. I know this is a "well, duh" point...

Re: 2016/4/1: Xbox One: Dead or Alive Backgammon

I have to give credit for our resident artist Mark Jewell for coming up with this brilliant concept. I was running a few ideas by the moderators in the moderator forum but not getting much traction. Then Mark posted this screenshot and that pretty much settled it. I love the "Your turn" i...

Re: 2016/4/1: Xbox One: Dead or Alive Backgammon

Dave, you crack me the hell up! This was your best April fools joke ever. Haha, this one fooled me. I forgot what day it was. Yeah, hilarious gag, Critic. Yeah I fell for it too. Woke up early this morning, grabbed my iPad, saw the review and thought "THIS is for the X-Box One?!? Who are they ...

Re: Criticize Your Favorite Video Game!

Skyrim for the 360. I absolutely loved the game and sank a lot of hours into it. Just a great game. But man oh man was the final boss fight a big letdown. I beat it on my first try in about 10 minutes; very anticlimactic.

Re: Streets of Rage & StarFox 64

I never understood the appeal of Star Fox 64. Your team provided almost no help, and I finished the game in 3 or 4 hours. Maybe it's a decent game, but it was never my cup of tea.

Re: Favorite Baseball Games

I was always a fan of INTV Baseball. Compared to the 2600, it was much more realistic and complex. And when you hit a double off the wall, you'd hear a big BOING!, just like in real life :mrgreen:

Re: Why does emulation garner so much hate?

I fully expect to play my games into my advanced years. Isn't that what retirement is for? You need to have some kind of hobby! And after you're dead who cares? And isn't video game collecting not unlike collecting baseball cards, old coins, cars, antique guns, stamps, iron-cast banks, etc etc etc?

Re: Why does emulation garner so much hate?

How long do you expect to actually play the things you're collecting? How long do you expect to live? Do you expect to be playing them with a few balding gray hairs on your head? Do you plan on handing it down to children/grandchildren? How do you know they're even interested and wouldn't just sell...

Re: Final word on most expensive console ever!

Oh, I'm not so sure the Neo Geo gets the title: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halcyon_(console) That's the equivalent of over $6K today, I believe. :o While the Halcyon was $2,500 (wow), I don't believe it ever made it to market. According to the link, only 12 were made. Longtime poster and all aro...

Re: Possible spam/malware threat with "Genesis vs. SNES" thread

Please DO NOT go to the Genesis vs. SNES thread as it's embedded with a Trojan. The thread is out of quarantine and is back in the Classic Gaming forum. I just went through the pages to see if the thread was clean, and when I got from page 8 to 9, or 9 to 10, my security software blocked another pag...
