Re: Sears files for bankruptcy

I'm just impressed that it staggered on as long as it did under Eddie Lampert's psychotic management.

Re: 2018/10/11: Genesis: Shadow Dancer: The Secret of Shinobi, Incredible Crash Test Dummies, The

"The cover art is amusing, showing our ninja hero harassing some old couple in an alleyway. Shinobi hates old people!" He's pretty clearly saving a woman from a mugger. To be fair, this is ridiculous in its own right. I think the funniest thing about the cover is how horribly drawn Joe Mus...

Re: Games so bad you have to shut it off

I love that Helicopter Rescue! (jeez, pipe down) has "sync-sound action". I normally don't expect sound effects to synchronize with the action, so it's cool to see a game with that feature. :lol:

Re: Games so bad you have to shut it off

I have to ask. Why were there two different versions of this game? There are actually three, if you can believe it. When the movie came out in 1989, there were two unrelated computer games based on it, both published by LucasFilm. One was a very good point-and-click adventure game developed in the ...

Re: PC games that never got a proper console port?

Alternatively, if I were to use VMWare or some other hypervisor instead, how could I get the games to work with my Xbox 360/Xbox One controller? I just remembered this part of the post. If you want to play old games on a new machine, your best bet is Good Old Games, who sell patched versions of cla...

Re: PC games that never got a proper console port?

Don't forget adventure games. No '90s PC game library is complete without Riven , Grim Fandango , The Curse of Monkey Island (the first two games too, but Curse fits the OP's time frame best), The Neverhood (my favorite game of all), or any of countless other adventure classics from the era. Keep in...

Re: Mega Man 11 destroys Mighty No. 9 on Metacritic!

Just remember, keep it simple and straightforward. And tell us what YOU think. He did, or at least that's what I remember from before he presumably edited the post and knocked it back into the moderation queue. He said that the level design was cheap and forced him to spam the dash move and that th...

Re: Is the Video Game Industry set for a Change

I don't see current trends changing in the near future. More powerful hardware will continue to drive up development budgets, with the result that AAA games will become even more homogenized and exploitative of consumers. The big names will continue to grow, and our privileges will continue to shrin...

I wasn't being serious. The game was a laughing stock when it came out; it's a dead horse in 2018. And you have already posted about it here many, many times. Just give it a rest. People have told you to stop harping on the same things over and over again.
