Re: Burning Super CD games

I was looking for Camp California (Turbo Duo) on Ebay and there's one copy for $400+. This is clearly one of these holy grail games out of everybody's price range. So I investigated to see if I could burn the ROM myself to CD, but the search led me to a bunch of questionable sites that would probab...

Only one? I think there needs to be at least fifty for it to be considered art.

Re: Favorite Snow Levels In Gaming

Arctic Cavern in Battletoads.

The snow stage in Strider (arcade/Sega Genesis) has gorgeous scenery. I remember being blown away when I played the Genesis port when it came out.

Re: if you only had ten minutes to play...

I was playing Mario Kart Double Dash before bed, and it got me thinking this. A lot of times I'll have ten minutes before I have to leave for work, or 15 minutes before the game starts. Some games like Duck Hunt or Mario Kart come to mind when I don't have much time. Obviously sports games usually ...

Having played games since around 1994, I've had a few. The first time I played Sonic the Hedgehog and Streets of Rage were certified AWESOME moments. The first time I played Bioshock, I was captivated and couldn't look back. Also, the first time I played Quake II for PC. More recently, the first ti...

Re: Best video game feels?

Have you ever beaten a really tough level, or killed an infuriating boss, and gotten that awesomely satisfying feeling? This year I beat the original Adventure Island. That was a euphoric victory. It isn't as renowned for difficulty as other tough games such as Battletoads, but it should be. Some o...
