You joke, but a Mutant Virus review on the NES would be timely! (Or Dr. Mario on the Game Boy.) What better theme for a game right now than destroying viruses?

Re: 2020/3/25: Turbografx-16: Battle Royale, Tricky Kick

New Turbografx-16 reviews? Niiiiiice. :D I haven't played either of them but Tricky Kick sounds intriguing! Speaking of the TG-16, I just found out that Shape Shifter, which I'd always assumed was a puzzle game, is actually an intriguing-looking side-scrolling action platformer/adventure. The progra...

I agree! Too bad the games were such complete turkeys. :D Thanks for suffering through them; always glad to see more Saturn reviews.

Re: Time for The Critic to do a set of reviews based on post-apocalyptic scenarios...

Maybe we could get a Mad Max (NES) review out of this one, eh, Critic? :mrgreen: Surprised there aren't more post-apocalyptic NES games, or post-apocalyptic 20th-century console games in general. I'd love to see the first BattleTanx game get reviewed, though -- I liked it a lot. Haven't played the s...

Re: Secret of Mana (SNES)

Beautiful game, Secret of Mana. Surprised we haven't seen a review yet, given the Critic's initial enthusiasm for it?

Re: 2020/3/14: Genesis: NBA Action '94, NBA Action '95, Shaq-Fu

Ah, Shaq-Fu. That one turns stone-bustingly tough on Expert difficulty. Took me a long time to beat! The "trap them in a corner and kick the snot out of them" tactic won't work anymore, and it becomes an interesting (though punishingly difficult and frustrating) tactical fighter, with diff...

Re: Unreviewed launch titles

Updated the first post to reflect completed reviews for Game Boy (Super Mario Land) and Game Gear (G-LOC)! Thanks for taking the time to put this together, goldenband. The good news- there's nothing glaring here, so the VGC must have reviewed a lot of the better launch games. A few that I'd be inter...

Re: Neo Geo CD Speed up?

Another alternative is an SD loader:

I wouldn't do this to a working Neo Geo CD, but if I had one with a dying laser assembly, I wouldn't hesitate. Takes some soldering, though.

Re: Best and Worst Console Game Lists Updated

Worst 20: - dropped Looney Tunes: Back in Action Good call. I played and beat this recently, and while it's kind of a chore, it's not that bad. I've certainly played tons of worse games. The main issues are the overreliance on collectathon mechanics without some kind of radar system to make it reas...
