Re: Halloween Games Suggestions

The Japanese-exclusive 3DO survival horror game Dr. Hauzer was recently translated by a fan -- the only 3DO fan translation to date (at least in English). It'd be nice to see that one get reviewed. You could also look at Casper: Friends Around the World , a 2D platformer on PlayStation. And of cours...

Re: 2018/9/1: Virtual Boy: Space Invaders Virtual Collection (Japan), Virtual Bowling (Japan)

What a nice surprise to see these two new Virtual Boy reviews! Great to see these off-the-beaten-path games documented and reviewed in English, and to see you getting so close to a 100% complete VB review set. Are there any Virtual Boy titles left to review? Yup, there are three officially released ...

Re: 2018/8/28: Sega Master System: Aztec Adventure, Submarine Attack (Europe)

Re: submarine games, there's also Conquest of the World for the Odyssey², which has a fair amount of submarine action mixed in with its board game-based structure.

I like the graphics in Sqoon! They're very "early Famicom" but look good for what they are.

Re: 2018/8/20: Sega 32X: RBI Baseball '95

Neat surprise to see this review pop up! I own this game but have never gotten around to playing it properly, though I did put a lot of time into RBI 3 and 4. I'll have to move it up the list. Only one unreviewed North American 32X game left to review!...and it's Supreme Warrior. Sorry, Critic. :twi...

Re: Gaming Days probably coming to almost an end.

What's staved this off for me is a combination of two things: having specific, defined goals when I play -- for example, beating all the games in a series, or in a certain genre -- and actually logging all my gameplay time. The former puts limits on my play and creates a sense of purpose; the latter...

Re: 2018/7/16: Intellivision: Sub Hunt, Commando

Pleased to see Commando get a positive review -- I've always thought they did a nice job with that one. Haven't really played Sub Hunt though it's been on my list to explore more.

And, of course, I'm always happy to see new Intellivision reviews! :)

Re: RBI Baseball 95 (Sega 32X)

Nice -- really glad the new cart worked out for you! Some 32X games are notorious for problems on certain systems, especially Knuckles Chaotix, but I'd never heard of RBI '95 causing a problem.

Looking forward to the review!

Re: 2018/7/1: Sega CD: Stellar-Fire, Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

^Cafeman's post matches what I've read from other folks who know P:TMA well. The Sega CD version has the extra levels that are also present in the 32X version, but without the framerate issues that plague that version. (The 32X cart updates about half of the onscreen elements at 30fps, the rest at 6...

Re: 2018/6/29: Genesis: Calibur 50, Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

Nice reviews! Two notes: "Calibur" in the review title? I think you've got a certain Dreamcast game on the brain. :mrgreen: The title of the game is Caliber .50 AFAIK, with a period (decimal) before the 50. And I'm not so sure about the claim that the Genesis version of Pitfall: TMA is wid...

Re: Early Piracy Theory - Okay to Copy but not Disseminate

What's kinda funny is that this snippet is in a commercial version of the Star Trek Text Game written in BASIC. The game is a version of the original BASIC game that was written around 1971 by MIke Mayfield and friends, and was in no way authorized to use the Star Trek franchise. The game was porte...
