Re: NFL Football

As a Steeler fan and with us being a full 2 games behind the Ravens in the AFC North, it killed me to have to root for them the week before last when they were playing the Patriots, but I had to... because they were playing the Patriots. It was through clenched teeth that I had to root them on, and ...

Re: 2019/11/12: Commodore 64: Seven Cities of Gold, The, Gunship!

Is it just a coincidence these two games use the exact same color palette?? That didn't necessarily occur to me, but it was pretty clear to me that Seven Cities looked, felt, and sounded a LOT like Pirates! by Sid Meier. He didn't have anything to do with this game, but I'm assuming that EA must ha...

Re: Book Review: Video Games in The Netherlands

Question: was the drink at arms length any variety of General Foods International Coffee? And if so, did it give you a nice warm feeling - like old songs and special friends? gfic.jpg Totally true about the German aversion to certain things in video games; when I moved to Bavaria back in 1993 I invi...

Re: 2019/9/22: Nintendo Switch: Horizon Chase Turbo, Dragon's Lair Trilogy

I guess I would have expected Horizon Chase Turbo to receive around an average grade, due to being unspectacularly playing. Based on the language in the review, I kind of feel like he may have given HCT either a "C-" or a "D+", however the constant nagging for it being offline (...

Super-X

I set my Coin-Ops emulation Xbox to 'Random' the other day and it selected the old arcade game "Super-X". I had never heard of or seen this game before, but as per my standard operating procedure I racked up 3 credits and hit 'start'. It was a surprisingly fun throwback SHUMP bullet-hell, ...

Herchie, this is just an 'overflow' show room for all the stuff he's had stashed in his garage and attic for the past couple of... decades? He still has his main "VGR" upstairs.

Re: My Latest Project

I should also add I use an excel spreadsheet to keep track of my stuff. Got a separate page per system, with condition scores. By the way I'm looking for a rug for this room since it has a concrete floor. The open area is about 4 ft x 8 ft, although it could probably be 5' x 9' if I run them under ...

Re: Most Terrifying Games of all time?

Amnesia: The Dark Descent was pretty scary,and in fact so scary for my wife that she had to quit playing it after about 30 minutes. She couldn't handle the tension!
