Re: 2020/1/25: Atari 7800: Dark Chambers, Serpentine

Always glad for any 1980's game reviews! At first glance I thought Serpentine was a KC's Crazy Chase conversion for the 7800. Dark Chambers is also on my "someday" list but when a game grade gets downgraded to an F I might find another game to tackle on this list (Space Shuttle or Secret Q...

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

A big shout out for the three-part Dracula series on Netflix! There are some interesting twists on the legend and the way the shows are "narrated" is innovative.

My all-time Dracula is Christopher Lee but the actor portraying the Count in this BBC series is outstanding.

Re: Your top 10 cartoons of all time

Probably not what is really intended in this thread, but put me down for the first 3 seasons of Family Guy. I will never tire of watching them (being a child of the 80's certainly helps with the cut-away scenes). Sadly, the magic did not return when the show resumed in 2005 as the raunchy and distas...

Re: Will Disney+ kill physical media?

I think it is generational. A couple of young guys at work laughed at me when I told them that I still actively buy DVDs on Ebay and at flea markets. They said "the only people who still buy DVDs are the same people who still write paper checks" (guilty as well). It will be interesting to ...

Championship Lode Runner for C-64

Any help on getting past the first board? After grabbing all the available gold, I assume it has to do with getting the two zombies to follow you down to grab the two last pieces at the middle-bottom trap (thus having the ladder reveal itself). I am a longtime Lode Runner player (this Thursday I set...

Re: 2019/9/11: Intellivision: Beamrider, Spiker Super Pro Volleyball

Although I strongly disagree with you about Beamrider it is great to see new Intellivision reviews! I LOVE the moving grid graphic illusion that is conveyed on Beamrider. I also think the constant "humming" sound throughout the game adds to the experience. Extra lives are earned by running...

Re: Platoon (NES)

I just watched Platoon on Netflix Saturday night so this is timely and fresh! Very funny stuff!

And if there's a heaven and God I hope there is, Elias is up there drunk as a monkey and playing the Commodore 64 version of Platoon.

Re: 2019/5/27: Intellivision: River Raid, Super Cobra

I thought the first thing the VGC would notice was the awesome title screen for River Raid! It certainly isn't the generic run-of the-mill variety that most Intellivision games have. Put me in the minority who feel that River Raid for the 2600 is just alright, but I have much love for the Inty versi...

Re: 2019/4/17: Atari XEGS: River Raid, Operation Blood: Light Gun Version

For the Critic's well known admiration of River Raid it is a little surprising that the Intellivision version has yet to be reviewed. It's a good one and plays well with the Inty controller!

Re: What do you like/dislike about the site?

I have always appreciated the short and concise reviews and cannot count the number of times I have used them when deciding many of my game purchases (particularly with Atari 5200 and Colecovision games as these were systems I acquired later on in my life and had no real knowledge of.) I have no iss...
