Re: Intellivision Relaunch?

The idea is that the Big Three are expensive, and there should less expensive (and less capable) alternatives. People are ponying up for retro consoles, so could thefe be a niche for an active one?

Sounds familiar, but maybe it could work.

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

And games are much longer than movies; I think of them more like TV shows. I don't need to watch all 200+ extant episodes of Dark Shadows to tell you that it's cheap & slow but pretty entertaining if you like Gothic horror, do I? That's a really good point. I guess it comes down to how much con...

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

When I first found this site, I was using Gamefaqs a lot. Its got long walkthroughts, cheats, various length reviews, etc. Yet when I wanted to start building a TG-16 collection ( I did not have the TG-16 during its retail life, but came to as a retro console) I really appreciated how this site did ...

Re: Thunder Storms!

Hoping our favorite video game critic did okay in the storms in his area last night. Streets of Ellicott City looked more like River Raid

Obsolescence of mobile devices by online updates

I've noticed with mobile devices, that afte a few years, the apps - not just games but modules of the expanded operating system like music apps - no longer work. These apps are constantly being updated, and eventually the hardware or base OS of your hardware is incompatible. The system slowly degrad...

Re: 2018/5/24: Playstation 3: Wonderbook: Walking with Dinosaurs

Thanks for reviewing this. It really shows that motion controls have potential to allow a lot more interactions with a game, or at least very intuitive ones. Brushing off dirt from a fossil is a perfect touch screen or motion control action, as you don't need to be all that precise or quick. Maybe c...

Re: Ted Dabney, Atari Co-Founder, has passed

Dabney designed the circuit board for Computer Space, using Marine Corps electronics training, according to Polygon. I could imagine Bushnell would be a difficult partner to have.
