Re: RPGs for people who aren't fans of the genre?

[H]ow about a Rogue-like? They have many RPG elements like levelling, loot, inventory management, and the general atmosphere, but are often short games, with a clear death at the end. Consoles are not the usual home for these, but Fatal Labyrinth on the Genesis comes to mind. That's why I suggested...

Re: New Head-to-Head icon!

Games in the Worms series, for sure. My wife and I have put close to 100 hours into the Dreamcast releases.

Re: Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

One more and I will cease with my OCD ways!! Add The Dreadnaught Factor for Intellivision to the list. Totally missed this post just now! Please, don't cease with your OCD ways -- they're perfect for a list like this. :D I'll edit the OP right now, which will reappear once it's approved by the mods...

Re: Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

Here's the Sega CD unreviewed list, which is longer but still represents over 50% completion for that console (at least for official US games). There are tons of worthy games here that deserve reviews -- so, something to look forward to! :mrgreen: EDIT: Moved list to first post to unclutter the thre...

Ooh, good call. I've edited the OP accordingly, though apparently that makes the post temporarily disappear (!) until the edit is approved.

Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

The "Top 10 games the VGC didn't review (yet)" thread got me thinking that -- since the VGC is close to completing reviews of the US library for a bunch of systems, and I've posted lists in various places of the games that are left -- I ought to post them all in one place. So, here are the...

Re: Best decade for television?

For "serious" TV, I'd say my favorite era is probably the 1970s. TV got a lot more conservative and "safe" in the 1980s, substituting empty violence for genuine engagement with controversial issues and depiction of three-dimensional, morally complex characters. For humor, it's ea...

Re: 2017/4/7: Odyssey 2: Smithereens, Mission Impossible

Please note that the Smithereens I had originally on my multicart was not as complete as the version on the actual cartridge. What was missing were the three rounds (with scoring), the victory animation, and some voice effects. I'm not sure what drove me to get the actual cart, but glad I did. Whoa...

Re: 2017/4/7: Odyssey 2: Smithereens, Mission Impossible

Nice re-review of Smithereens. While I can imagine that additional features could be fun, it's still the standout Odyssey² game for me, especially with The Voice.
