Missile Command review for the Atari 2600

Good review of this excellent port to the Atari 2600. Missile Command was a fun two-player experience also since you got to take turns each round when playing. The quality of this port along with Berzerk and Asteroids to me only exposes the awful way the Pac-Man port for the 2600 was handled. I was ...

Re: 2018/11/24: Atari 2600: Concentration, Robot Tank

You know I don't think back in the early 80's when playing Robot Tank that I even realized that the enemy tanks didn't fire while out of view. I remember it being a fun game to play back then. If memory serves doesn't the screen flicker and distort when your tank is hit by the enemy?

Re: Which games have the best screenshots?

I remember how cool Astrochase looked in the gaming magazines ads back in the early 80’s. Anyone who played it quickly learned that looks can be deceiving. Another great intro screen was Swordquest Earthworld. To bad that 99% of the effort went into making those intros.

Re: 2018/11/17: Playstation: NCAA Football 98

My old roommate and I used to play this game back in the day. It truly was a pleasure to play and the options available were impressive. Your right about running the option too. I wish more developers would get into making football and baseball games to challenge EA. I realize that having the team a...

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

I was selling computers at Circuit City in the early to mid 90's. We HATED Packer Bell computers! We often referred to them as Packard Smell or Packard Hell. Since they were the cheapest computers we had the store flyer would often advertise them. Whenever one went out you had to wait to see if it w...

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

I have not yet played a version of Civilization on a console that was as in-depth and fun as the PC version. Might as well throw in the SimCity games too.

Re: Atari game in movie?

Don't think I have ever seen that one before. However, I can remember commercials and tv programs over the years that used Atari 2600 Donkey Kong and Pac-Man sound bits. This was done years after those games were dead and gone as far as the general public was concerned.

Re: Worst 50 Games of All Time!

I know this had to be difficult and probably took you a long time to put together. It would be cool if you could do a list for all the different systems. Or maybe a list for each decade. God knows there were some serious stinkers when all of those fly by night companies popped up for the 2600. When ...

Re: Anybody going to see Alien Covenant?

I totally agree Alien Resurrection should just be forgotten about. My biggest complaint about Alien 3 was that they killed of Newt and Hicks from Aliens. Just seemed wrong to me after she hid all that time and was finally rescued from LV-426 to kill her off with little afterthought. I know many peop...
