PGA Tour Golf III (Sega Genesis)

This one is an all-time favorite for me, and I go back to it often. I have a buddy that played this game nearly as much as I, and we used to battle every once in a while. Skins matches were nail-biters for us, and if we saddled up for a tournament, it was likely to be a #1 & #2 finish, with only...

Re: Are Fishing Games Gambling

That is a long article, but pretty well written. I think the fact that you can win money back lends me to classify it as gambling. I would guess the "skill" is somehow linked to a percentage. If it was all on the up-and-up, they wouldn't have different owners and operators, and, most impor...

Re: NES Controller preference: Original or Dog Bone?

That's actually the only thing I've ever heard it called! I thought that was the common colloquialism! Maybe that just comes from my model train nerdery, too.

Re: New thumbs up/down feature?

I mean, maybe we'd have the universal drop in intelligence in the comments that a place like reddit has simply by including the link to the forums, but as the reviews span 1st gen to current I doubt there are too many "popular this moment" reddit-level trolls here, except for possibly when...

Re: Encasing (Slabbing) Video Games

I just ran into this today, quite by accident. I stopped by a store in Portland (which has an amazing selection, but is priced as though you're buying from a collector who doesn't really want to sell), and another patron was talking to the dude behind the counter. The patron was sharing that he had ...

Re: New thumbs up/down feature?

-perhaps instead of allowing comments on a review you could provide a link at the bottom of each review that links to the threads that you always post for your reviews in? - I second this idea, and suggested it on a different thread many moons ago. It would drive forum traffic if there was a link a...

Re: I'm SCARTing!

I bought a SCART cable for my Genesis and an OSSC. The clarity of the picture is unreal. I'm using an Epson projector and a Marantz receiver, and there is zero noticeable lag. I'm going to be buying a SCART switch and some SCART cables for many of my other systems. Might even have to look into getti...

Re: 2018/11/3: Atari 7800: Midnight Mutants

Nice review; I love the joke about Atari knowing 90's kids loved 60's comedies! I'm curious on re-reviews: I know you grade based on how good/fun/well-designed it is today compared to other games for the system. If a grade changes, is it more likely that your perception of good/fun/etc. has changed,...
