Re: Final word on most expensive console ever!

Oh, I'm not so sure the Neo Geo gets the title:

That's the equivalent of over $6K today, I believe. :o

Re: They have a Pamela Anderson game on the PS2!

Heh, I have the PlayStation (PS1) game, though I haven't played it (it came with a large lot of sealed games). Maybe you could review the PlayStation version as well? :mrgreen:

Re: 2016/2/19: SG-1000: Dragon Wang, GP World, Zaxxon

Well, it's complicated because the Master System can play SG-1000 games -- all the necessary stuff is there on the motherboard, and F-16 Fighting Falcon uses the SG-1000 display mode. It's just that the US BIOS locks them out, and the pinouts on the cart slot have been changed as well. But if you ha...

Re: Inconsistency with reviews that might need correction list.

I'm going to put Destination Earthstar on my review list because apparently I missed the boat on that one. It happens. :) Glad to hear it. We all overlook things from time to time; why, just the other day, I overlooked a four-leaf clover. BTW I don't expect the review grade to change much, if at al...

Re: Inconsistency with reviews that might need correction list.

The only review I particularly want to see the Critic redo is the Destination Earthstar review, simply because it completely ignores half of the game. :mrgreen:

Otherwise, eh, if I wanted consistency I'd make tapioca pudding. (Mmm, tapioca pudding.)

Re: 2015/12/26: Philips CD-i: Caesars World of Gambling, Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia

Thanks for those recommendations. I want to review more games for the CD-i but I never know what's out there! Now I have a few titles to track down. I did buy Clue recently. You're very welcome! There's an almost-complete list of CD-i games here: We count a total of 133 released CD-i games As you c...

Re: 2015/12/26: Philips CD-i: Caesars World of Gambling, Compton's Interactive Encyclopedia

CD-i reviews! Always glad to see those, even if the titles are a bit, er, unexpected. :) Hope to see more in the coming months. I've never played a CD-I and to be frank looking at it's library that's probably not a bad thing. You must be really scraping the barrel to wind up reviewing an encyclopaed...

Re: Toxic Genesis Games to Avoid

The only Genesis game that I ever played that I didn't beat or just had no desire to beat was this game called Fatal Rewind. [...] Fortunately, to the best of my knowledge no one else has ever played this toxic heap of a game). I've played it a fair bit, especially the Japanese version (The Killing...

Re: 2015/12/6: Genesis: Dino Land, Fatal Labyrinth

Nice Fatal Labyrinth review from Scotland! It's good to see a sympathetic treatment of that too-often maligned game. One caveat, though: Fatal Labyrinth actually lets you continue if you get killed. It may throw you back a few levels, but it's not too bad. The review implies the game has permadeath,...

Re: 2015/11/5: Atari 2600: Bridge, Xevious (Fixed)

Atari 2600 reviews, nice! I'd never have expected to see a Bridge review, but if you're looking to complete your Activision review set for the VCS, that makes sense. I think Kung Fu Master is the only one left for VCS? I've been meaning for ages to learn how to play bridge and backgammon. Someone ta...
