Re: 2018/12/14: Wii: We Wish You a Merry Christmas

It almost sounds like it'd be worth picking up for the Elf Bowling alone!!! That sound hillarious!

Re: Best Game Introduction / Narrative

For an FPS, I'd say the original Half Life - no question! The way that game started out, with you 'going to work' on a tram and going down into the belly of the Black Mesa Research facility while that eerie voice droned on over the loudspeaker just did a fantastic job of setting the mood for the gam...

Re: 2018/11/28: Commodore 64: The Dam Busters

I got the game as pirated copy back then. And I still managed (with a lot of trial and error) to bomb that dam. Today I probably wouldn't have that stamina anymore. Times have changed, maybe for the reviewer too? No doubt at all that I don't have the time or patience to "figure out" a gam...

Re: 2018/11/28: Commodore 64: The Dam Busters

If you don't mind me asking, what would you consider the best flight sim experience on the C64? Just so I have a rough idea of what what was realistically achievable when a good coder had to struggle with an actual physics engine instead of just showing off how to port the Thunderblade experience. ...

Re: 2018/11/28: Commodore 64: The Dam Busters

I normally love his reviews, and it's clear he tried to give this game a fair shake. But despite that, he missed too much of the game to really review it fairly, and he ended his experience in confusion. Thanks Pixel. I did know about the various screens (or 'stations') that you cycle through, and ...

Re: C64 mini

I decided to go ahead and order one for myself yesterday for $60 on Black Friday. I checked this morning (Day after Black Friday) and they are still $60. I was going to mention this but Scotland beat me to the punch! I probably won't get one myself since the included games are so weak given the ext...

Re: 2018/11/17: Playstation: NCAA Football 98

I don't think we've ever played this, it sounds like we've missed out on a few fun Monday nights? You also have a typo in your review... "you're see plenty" should be "you'll see plenty".

Re: Physical Release Thread

This seems like an appropriate forum for this news; it appears that Microsoft may be releasing a version of the Xbox One with no disc drive. This, to me, sounds pretty much like what I believe they wished to do originally with the Xbox One, until there was so much consumer backlash. https://www.trus...

Just buy the disc, I don't see the problem here.


Unless I'm wrong, he mentioned having two disks... so, it sound like he did 'buy the disc' but still has tons of Update hell to deal with (a lot with the console itself, some with the game).
