Re: 2019/1/11: Genesis: Arch Rivals, Wolverine: Adamantium Rage

There is no question that NBA Jam was influenced by Arch Rivals. The graphics of the arcade version are every bit as cheesy looking as the Genesis version (e.g. cartoon-like) but it was pretty playable.

Re: Fake GBA Games

Yeah if the label reads "Licensed by Nontendo" it's pretty good sign of a fake. :D

I agree with PGA Tour on the 3DO - fantastic version.

Re: C64 mini

Just be sure you got the newer 'North American' revision as it contains a number of improvements including better emulation and easier side-loading of games via USB stick. David Murray (The 8-bit Guy) on YouTube did a review of both the original and updated versions. Supposedly there is a version in...

Re: 2018/11/10: Nintendo Switch: Night Trap: 25th Anniversary Edition

I've played a perfect game of Night Trap! You get a much better ending that way. It's not too hard to do, but requires the kind of mapping and planning that's pretty much Kryptonite to the VGC's play style. :) Ditto. Back in the day my cousin and I got very proficient at not only finishing the game...

Re: 2018/10/26: Commodore 64: Project Firestart

The Great Gianna Sisters on the C64 is a pretty good side-scroller. I like the Super Mario hack better though where the lead characters and some of the enemies are replaced with Mario and Luigi.

Re: New Atari Portable?

There is a new Atari Flashback 9 out that has 110 games built in. I don't recall seeing a new portable unit though. The only two I am aware of are the one with Frogger and the one with PacMan.

Re: ABC Monday Night Football (SNES)

Yeah for sure a side-effect of Madden being a year or two delayed on the SNES meant that there were some pretty terrible stop-gap football games on the system. I remember the launch title Super Play Action Football which was on a diagonal play-field. It included NFL, college, and some high school te...

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

I've always wondered why Shadow Dancer on the Genesis was different than all other ports. While the play mechanics are similar, the levels are completely different. I do prefer the Genesis version though so perhaps it's a 'fun factor' thing.
