Re: Return of the Typo Thread!

Correct me if I'm wrong -- I'm a newcomer to the PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 -- but the review labeled as "Nightmare Creatures" for the TurboGrafx-16 should really be Night Creatures, no?

Re: Most Worthless Console You have Ever Owned?

Funny, the 3DO is the fifth-gen console I play the second-most, after PlayStation. A lot of those 3DO > PS1 and Saturn ports were botched to varying degrees: Psychic Detective has big cuts, Star Fighter has graphical downgrades, etc. I don't do PC gaming so I wouldn't know much about those, but I've...

Re: Old game magazines

Old game magazines? I don't think you youngsters know what "old" gaming magazines are. I am talking about Electronic Games magazine back from the early 80's. I still have several issues. Dirk the daring, Miner 2049er, Mario, and many others graced the cover of these issues back when they ...

Re: Things in Video Games you Hate?

A few pet peeves: ⋅ Games that don't offer an instant "Retry?" option when it'd clearly be appropriate, but instead force you to go back to the main menu and re-input all your options/navigate a bunch of menus ⋅ Games where success or failure depends heavily on randomne...

Re: 2016/6/5: Turbografx-16: Davis Cup Tennis, World Court Tennis, World Sports Competition

World Court Tennis uses the same engine as Family Tennis, the best tennis game on the NES/Famicom. I've only played the TG-16 game a little bit, but right away I could tell it was the same -- the serves, forehands, everything in the game had the same crisp, intuitive, yet faithful-to-real-life feel ...

Re: Summer Olympic Games

Will you be adding Super Pro Decathlon to the mix? I hope so! It'd be great to see more reviews of the classic-era Intellivision library, since you're not too far from completing the set.

(I guess Spiker would also fit the theme, but unless you have a flash cart... 8-) )

Re: 2012/11/4: Sega CD: Corpse Killer, Heart of the Alien, Lethal Enforcers II: Gunfighters

After playing the ST version and the Mega Drive version I still regard it as a very strong game. But then I played the Sega CD version. Something is off. Presentation and sound is above the aforementioned versions but the timing of the CD version is 'off'. I can't really explain it but for some rea...

What's going on with the hi-res images of the moon in those Arcadia screenshots? A watermark, I suppose?

I was wondering if I'd get away with that. :mrgreen: I believe you're probably right.

That said, does the LaserActive still get the edge over the Neo Geo?
