Who didn't own a NES in the 80's?

Back in the 80's I never owned a NES. I owned a 7800 and then a SMS. The 7800 was first because I foolishly believed my friend that the NES was more expensive and the only plus it had was better graphics. I came to find this was incorrect. Fast forward 1 and half later I am trying to decide between ...

Same. I wonder if you could use the 2600 controller?

Re: Praise for Desert Falcon

Think I may have played it on the Atari Anthology ? Had a hard time of it if memory recalls might need to spend more time with it. Any collections that have it are going to have the 2600 version which is not nearly as good as the 7800 version. I still like the 2600 version though. I actually play t...

Re: 7800 homebrews?

I love Desert Falcon and Food Fight. I'd love to see proper versions in a new flashback. I also like Double Dragon. Not sure why it gets all the hate. It's very playable once you figure out the reverse kick. I also like Choplifter, Xevious, Commando, Rampage, Alien Brigade and Ikari Warriors.

Praise for Desert Falcon

I love this game! I know I'm in the minority but I really enjoy it. The 7800 version is obviously preferred but I also enjoy playing the 2600 (via the DS atari collection) on advanced mode. The action is frantic and I love swooping down grabbing power ups or treasure dodging enemies. It would be nic...

Wii games to play with your wife

Hello,

Does anyone have any suggestions for wii games to play with a non gamer spouse? We have Wii Sports and house of the dead 2 and 3. I was thinking Mario Kart might be good. Thanks in advance!

Re: Sega making some moves. Subscription service?

I downloaded Altered Beast and Comix Zone. I am seeing the frame rate issues but overall I think they are still fun and the lag doesn't hurt the experience too much. That being said I wouldn't pay for them in this state but for free I am not complaining. Hopefully they will resolve the emulation iss...

Re: 2016/7/23: Sega Master System: Great Golf, Parlour Games, Captain Silver

I remember Captain Silver getting trashed by Electronic gaming monthly back in the day. Rather unjustly I might add. Great to see Master system reviews. Looking forward to the Zillion 2 review promised in the coming attractions.
