Re: About the Astrocade...

Astrocade was definitely superior its rivals in the late 70s. It doesn't look as powerful as the Colecovision.

I'd like to try Incredible Wizard.

Re: 2019/9/7: Turbografx-16: New Adventure Island, Camp California (CD)

Speaking of Adventure Island, you criticize the NES game for using B to run and toss your weapon, and A to jump. This complaint doesn't make much sense. It's the same controls as Mario and any other configuration would be worse. I assume that New Adventure Island controls the same way as well.

Re: 2019/8/17: Xbox: Outrun 2, Outrun 2006: Coast to Coast

I used to have the PS2 port of Coast to Coast before I sold my PS2 collection. It was one of my favorites on the system. Never played the XBOX port.

Re: $10K for an unopened NES game?

A lot of people have been sending me this article about a new Kid Icarus game somebody found in their attic, being auctioned for a lot of money: https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/unopened-1987-nintendo-video-game-180032021.html I'm happy for the seller, but I don't understand why someone would pu...

I was about to say. The speedrunning controversy over this game is probably more interesting than the game itself.

Re: Most hypocritical video game reviewer moments?

Irate Gamer isn't technically a reviewer. He's a bad Youtube comedian doing the same schtick as the Angry Video Game Nerd making fun of old games and not to be taken seriously. He exaggerates flaws of games for humor sake. Aren't most professional reviewers beholden to their sponsors and the genera...

Re: Most polarizing video games and why?

Can you think of any games that are loved by average/casual gamers but hated by the critics and video game snobs?

There's a lot of this in movies, music and books so it must exist to some degree in video games.

Re: Ever buy a console for one specific game?

Original XBOX for Ninja Gaiden which I did not complete. I think I reached level 11 and the ice caverns before giving up.

Re: Any fans of "Awesome Games Done Quick"?

This run of Marble Madness with one player beating two player mode with two controllers is amazing.
