Re: Microvision System Review

Excellent overview of both the system and the games. IMHO, this may merit permanent inclusion in the 'Portables' menu section (if Retro is good with that). The information / review of the system is precise and includes technical details (like in your other portable review sections). Just a thought -...

Re: What is your Holy Grail?

Just some thoughts... • Shadow Tower - I believe I may have a loose copy of Shadow Tower in my collection. Let me check this weekend. • Pioneer LaserActive - I have heard this, but did not have any issues with either of the units I had. That said, they still service this unit in Japan (not sure if t...

Re: Kingdom Hearts. What is it? PS2

I have to respectfully disagree with Stalvern. If you like action RPG games, this is a must have. It combines excellent gameplay with light RPG elements supported by a storyline that is engrossing with beloved characters from everybody's youth. Definitely recommended if you are a fan of the genre. I...

Re: Introducing the Nintendo Switch

I wrote an article in 2009 that details this exact idea. I coined my new prototype system the "SX2" (System x Two). From the original article its origin : "Develop one system that provides the advanced offerings of the console and includes a portable, compatible gaming device to conti...

Re: New AVS Console plays NES carts

This done look to be a very interesting piece of hardware. I like all of the features and the price tag is not half-bad for what you are getting. Also, I love the replica-look they went for in the case design. Though the author states the familiar box-design of the original NES in 1985, this is actu...

Search Feature for Forum?

Hey Dave (or anyone that knows)).

Maybe it is completely obvious and I am missing it, but is there a search function for the forum? Thanks.

Suggested Webite Tweaks

Hey Dave. Love the enhancements and always appreciate your effort to improve VGC for the community. Just wanted to provide a few thoughts to chew on regarding the site: o Menu font size in Forums is different than in main website - CSS conflict? o GameWise no longer lists you as a link (might want t...
