Re: Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

A laser disc add on for The Colecovision? Never heard that one. I should clarify this one. I believe it was Video Games magazine that stated back in 1983 that CV was in talks with Cinemetronics to license Dragon's Lair. The writer speculated that perhaps a CV laser-disc add-on might come as a resul...

Re: Gaming rumors that do/have annoyed you

Early 80's video game mags were full of vaporware or products that never saw the light of day, such as the INTV III and INTV IV, the Colecovision Super Games Module, Odyssey 3, a 2600 Keyboard, and a laserdisc add-on for the CV. However, I didn't really find this reporting annoying, but rather fasci...

Re: Tron the arcade game (1982)

Some things are best left as memories in the arcade. Playing this game as a download would be fun for a few minutes, but then I'd get bored and wish that I could just play it at an arcade. It's funny; when I was a kid I dreamed about playing arcade games on a home console. Now as an adult I dream a...

Re: My daughter and I have gotten into Star Trek

Surprised I missed this thread the first time around. I remember watching the original Star Trek as a kid with my mom many moons ago. Star Trek TNG was not very good the first 2 seasons, but seasons 3-7 were really great (and surprisingly deep at times), and I've seen every episode multiple times. S...

Re: Tron the arcade game (1982)

I too am a huge fan of Tron http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=10204 and Discs of Tron http://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=7594 . And I've seen the original movie multiple times. I went back to Western Pennsylvania last month to visit family and friends, and was ab...

Re: New Idea for Site?

Don't want to sound like a Debbie Downer, but I find myself spending less time here because of the "Hot Topics" link. A good idea in theory, but I come here now, look at the Hot Topics, and if nothing piques my interest, I move on. Before I'd check out each forum and maybe put my two cents...

Re: Things in Video Games you Hate?

I'm sure that this has been stated, but with RPG's and action/adventure games, after an hour or two of roaming, I say to myself, "I have no idea where to go or what to do next."

Re: What ever happened to arcade games?

Pinball PA in Hopwell, PA, in western Pennslvania will blow you away (was going to make a separate thread, but decided to post here). 150 pinball games, 250 arcade games from the 1950's to the 1990's. I grew up in western PA and visit family and friends yearly. We just got back from a visit, and I t...

Re: Games everyone loves, but you don't see them as great.

Star Fox 64. Never understood the appeal of this game, as some call it one of the best ever. I call it a shoulder-shrugger.

Re: Main Page Style Changes

I agree with others, I'm not a big fan of the WiiU borders on the main page. BUT, not all changes will be successful; some changes may need tweaking, others will need to be completely scrapped. It's a part of the process. Keep up the good work!
