[QUOTE=PingvinBlueJeans]Dave, I just noticed there's a thread about you and your "disrespect" for the Videopac/Odyssey 2 in the Videopac.org forums, if you care to respond:
[QUOTE=Anayo][QUOTE]I wonder if there will be a Dave hating campaign by the Pippin lovers of the world.
Both of them?
Those guys on that site are freaking retarded. I've never played it, but I know enough about it to know that the Oddyseey 2 very likely sucked wang. I'm not a Dave fan in any way, shape, or form myself (his reviews are good and often funny, but I think he's a complete jerk, like the jock who beats you up at school for no reason, or the ancient english teacher who loathes abbreviations.), but they are all total dumbasses.

You have to remember, the O2 was a very early effort in programmable consoles, and it wasn't a bad effort. To put the gaming market of the time into context, here's an article that might help (you'll have to choose zoom in). That's a great article by the way.
Also, I can see why people at those forums would have a minor beef with Dave, as his review of Alien Invaders Plus is way off, but it's hardly the kind of thing you get mad about. No, the real trick is to keep visiting the site and working in references (Pole Position 2) to games (come on, it's way under-rated) that you would like (ask yourself, is it really worse than Jinks?) to see re-reviewed (it's certainly not two entire letter grades below Hang On-- a Pole Position clone which was also a pack-in).
