Re: 2019/7/4: Atari XEGS: Frogger II: Threedeep!, Pitfall

XE and 5200 games are usually identical, I remember the scorpions are very difficult to jump on the 5200 version. Is the same true of the XE Pitfall? I'd say they are probably harder to jump on the 5200 due to the lack of precision with the controller. AFAIK the 5200 version is a direct port of the...

Re: Favorite Movie Series?

What’s your favorite Craig Bond?


Skyfall has some great moments. I own all 4 on BD and like them all, but Casino Royale is easily still my favorite.

Re: Favorite Movie Series?

I liked Star Wars, and I still get excited at each new release, but it doesn't have the appeal to me it once had. Love the Indiana Jones films too but I rarely get in the mood the rewatch them. I love the Jurassic Park series, all of them including Jurassic World 1 and 2. I also very much enjoy Kung...

Re: No boat racing games?

H2Overdrive looks incredible. This is what I'm talking about! Why in the [expletive] are arcade games like this not being released on consoles?!?! I know, it boggles the mind! The team behind Hydro Thunder Hurricane on X360 made Riptide Renegade which I think is download only, I have it on ps4. Act...

Re: 2019/6/18: Nintendo Switch: Sonic Team Racing

I enjoyed the Xbox 360 Sonic racing games, so I was eager to read your review of this one. It sounds disappointing. I wonder what happened. From the team that brought us Outrun 2!

Re: Hydro Thunder (Dreamcast)

I decided to try out HT using my Akura VGA HDMI box, which I bought last fall. To my surprise, I already own the red disc Hydro Thunder! I tried it out, it does work in VGA however it is the only game that has a slight Jitter every now and then. So, it isn't 100% perfect, but it's quite playable any...

Re: Hydro Thunder (Dreamcast)

Other than it works with VGA, which I do usually use, are there any other differences from the launch game?

Re: Hydro Thunder (Dreamcast)

One of my first DC games and I was blown away. Very difficult game actually. There is a bug where every now and then. The boost meter sticks at full, and this helped me immensely to place 1st and progress. Wish I had the new version, but I don't.

Re: Has anyone actually ever repaired a game disc without resurfacing?

Boiling discs as a suggestion seemed to be popular during the Dreamcast and OG Xbox years. It can remove a film, it can solve minor disc warping problems, they say. Google it for more info. I boiled a couple games, I think maybe Dreamcast games? But I do remember it made 2 or maybe 3 games work for ...
