Re: Tunnel B1 (Playstation 1)

Definitely more of a tech demo than an actual game. Honestly, it was one of the first PlayStation games that I ever played. Played a demo disc at a friend's house that had this game on it along with ESPN Extreme Games, Warhawk, and a few others. I liked Tunnel B1 for what it was, as the simple joy o...

Re: Sega Genesis Mini

I'm supremely bummed that the Japanese got 6-button controllers bundled with their systems. At least Sega included 2 controllers so you and a buddy can go to town right out of the box. Including SFII CE is a bit of a strange choice when they could have opted for the better (at least from a port stan...

Re: What was your best goodwill video game find?

My wife got at least $1000 worth of video game stuff at a church barn sale for $20. No idea whose collection it was. Nowadays I suppose it'd be worth more like $3-4k. Saturn RPGs CIB, Mega Man Legends 2 CIB, Tron Bonne (disc only), Mario Party 2 and 3...the list goes on. As far as this topic is con...

Re: What was your best goodwill video game find?

Oh, Goodwill. Or St. Vinny's. How times have changed. Used to be you could find nearly anything for next-to-nothing. Nowadays, I feel like every single item in most thrift shops is price-checked online first, taking a lot of thrill out of the find. I recently saw a stack of NES games at a local St. ...

Re: Happy 9/9/99!

I’d never call the 64 overrated. It’s perfectly rated. Lol. I love this comment. Not sure why the swipe at the N64 was necessary, anyway. This is a topic about the Dreamcast. If somebody says the DC still holds up today, that's all well and good. To shoehorn in a "better than the N64" com...

Re: Wolfenstein 3D (SNES)

I have however heard of a port of Duke Nukem 3D for that same console (I'll do a review sometime soon) Oooof, be warned, that 16-bit version of Duke is not the best. Oddly enough, it was an officially licensed version of the game that came out very late in the system's life cycle, and I believe it ...

Re: Wolfenstein 3D (SNES)

Nice write-up! Are you aware of the fan-made version of Wolfenstein 3D for the Sega Genesis? Give it a look if you have the time, as it is very, very faithful to the PC original. Nice to see what was possible on 16-bit hardware. I've always been a fan of the Super NES version of Doom despite its lim...

Re: Happy 9/9/99!

it was basically a less successful Nintendo Switch I don't understand this comparison. I never will. You've made it on several other posts and it just makes zero sense. Dreamcast was the most powerful and advanced home console ever produced at the time of its release. Its launch games were full of ...

Re: NFL Football

Oh, Critic. I remember how, in your review of Madden 19 last year, you lamented the fact that Jackson was the starter for the Ravens over Flacco. It's like EA knew that the writing was on the wall! Still, I wish "Joe Cool" all the best out in Denver, and hope that he can get the Broncos ba...
