Re: your favorite FMV game?

*I Googled "partial-motion video" out of curiosity and actually found a few references to it, but none of them agree on what it might happen to be. When I hear this term, I think of Plumbers Don't Wear Ties or Zelda on the CD-i (e.g. static images that quickly shift from one to the next g...

The one that got away...

As a kid you received a game - maybe for a birthday, maybe a holiday. You played it, liked it (or hated it) and then you got rid of it. Maybe you gave it to a friend or traded it in. Maybe it was just lost somewhere. The only problem is now the game is super rare and worth a ton of money. I figure i...

Re: your favorite FMV game?

I'm not sure I would count Mansion of the Hidden Souls (great game) as FMV as there is really no FMV to speak of. It's all computer-rendered (no live action). There are a few more I did think of though that I want to add to the list: Voyeur (CD-i/PC) - for whatever reason I always liked this game Ph...

Re: your favorite FMV game?

I really like the majority of the Digital Pictures releases for the Sega CD (and other systems). For me though, it's a tie between Double Switch and Sewer Shark for my favorite. Sewer Shark was the first FMV game I ever beat followed by Double Switch. Of course the acting is really what makes these ...

Re: Stadia launch lineup announced and still do not care.

I took a look recently at the Stadia as it's the kind of oddball system I usually go far (which then tend to ALWAYS flop). I however cannot justify the monthly subscription cost seeing as I am at best a casual gamer so I'd be basically paying a monthly fee for a system I may only play every few mont...

Re: Scaled down arcade cabinets

A few different companies have tried mini arcade cabinets like these over the past 10 years or so, and Arcade1up is the closest any company has come to doing it right. But personally I'm still not sold. I haven't seen these in person, but I can't imagine that 3/4 replica of an arcade machine, made ...

Re: Atari release board pictures and new streaming service!!

Still not sold on Atari VCS, but it nice that something new has been announced despite the radio silence before it launch in 2 month! Nintendo. It is radio silence and then something turns up. The product works. Nu Atari. 3 years late and no working prototype. Not games announced for the new consol...

Re: 2019/9/20: Jaguar: JagZombies (CD), Saucer Wars (CD)

I feel like we have still never seen what the Jaguar could really do in terms of technology. The hardware was actually decent. I'd love to see a port of Quake or Duke 3D running on it or maybe a good sports game.

Re: About the Astrocade...

If I could go back in time I'd love to browse around those old departments stores like Montgomery Ward and peruse the latest in "high tech" merchandise. I'd probably go on a shopping spree. There are sites online where you can view/virtually flip through the old Sears Wishbook and Radio S...
