Re: your favorite FMV game?

I recently found out about Kingdom: The Far Reaches (originally the almost-unreleased Thayer's Quest on Laserdisc). I'm not sure that it looks good , but it seems intriguingly ambitious for an FMV game. I've been trying to get the Critic to review that game (and its sequel) for ages! My wife and I ...

Re: Thrill Kill (unreleased PS1)

Oh, man, I can just imagine the awkward, stiff clanking of those buttons. If it's not cheaply-made and janky as hell, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

Re: 2019/11/26: Philips CD-i: Arcade Classics

So I tried what you said and sure enough, the memory was empty. So the first thing I ask is, how easy is it to replace the battery? So I looked up a few YouTube videos and it appears that you CANNOT replace it. Apparently it's embedded in one of the chips? So it requires major surgery to install a ...

Re: 2019/11/22: Arcadia 2001: Crazy Climber, Circus

Your wish is my command! Posted two new Arcadia 2001 reviews. Sweet, keep 'em coming! :) I'm not sure either one of these saw wide release. Circus looks unfinished. The Arcadia 2001 release library is so confusing, partly because there are a bunch of clone consoles outside the US with games that we...

Re: Is anyone else ever nostalgic for bad graphics?

But how would I even begin to justify my love for something like Castle of Tharoggad? Technically, this is the victim of a very primitive color vector engine, but in every other way it's a cautionary tale about why art majors shouldn't be taken for granted. That's completely nuts -- I just had a dr...

Re: 2019/11/15: Sega Master System: California Games, Streets of Rage

Awesome to see new Master System reviews. The Streets of Rage port is indeed quite good -- I played it a fair bit years ago. It needs one of those "Europe" tags, doesn't it? I don't believe it came out in North America. Re: California Games, a streamer I follow recently did a playthrough o...

Re: Systems I've Neglected?

I'm going to start working off this list, checking off systems as I go. Be patient though. Awesome: :D BTW I know I keep bringing this up over the years, but -- since you mentioned re-reviews in your original post -- a game that definitely needs a re-review is Destination Earthstar on the NES. It's...

Re: Systems I've Neglected?

The Channel F Is definitely overdue for some reviews, as it's been over three years and there are still 11 games in the original release library left to cover: Videocart-03: Video Blackjack Videocart-06: Math Quiz I (Addition & Subtraction) Videocart-07: Math Quiz II (Multiplication & Divisi...

Re: Fighting Baseball on Super Famicom

There's no regional lockout for Japanese games on the SNES, only the physical lockout. Snap off those tabs in the cartridge slot and you're good to go! I've got 30-35 Super Famicom games from Japan and they all play fine on my SNES. (However, PAL-region games do have a chip-based lockout in NTSC reg...
