Re: Super Ghouls and Ghosts

I broke out my SNES Classic the other day and tried Super Ghouls and Ghosts. Now I'm a huge fan of Dark Souls and Bloodborne, so obviously a game being hard doesn't bother me. SG&G, though, is too hard! Unfairly hard! There's no strategy or skill here, it's just an avalanche of enemies designed...

Re: Back to School games?

I've never played it, but "Day Dreamin' Davey" is a weird NES RPG about a boy who keeps falling asleep at school and dreaming about adventures. The Angry Video Game Nerd did an episode about it.

Re: Most Disappointing Games?

For me it's always been Actraiser 2. I was SOOOO disappointed to finish the first side scrolling level and discover that they had eliminated the RPG element of the game, which was what put the original on a pedestal for me. Oh man, this was such a huge disappointment for me as well. I mean, if the ...

You referred to Montezuma's Revenge for Colecovision. You should check out the SMS port sometime.

Re: Madden Tournament Shooting

The gaming aspect doesn't make this story any different from other recent shootings. The shooter was a disturbed individual with a documented history of mental health issues who got hold of a gun. eSports are no different from professional chess. They require skill and dedication, and, at the upper...

Re: Most Disappointing Games?

Back in the day, Atari 2600 Pac-Man had to be the most disappointing arcade port.

Dreamcast Daytona was a colossal disappointment for me personally. I was a huge fan of Gran Turismo and Ridge Racer Type 4, and was really looking forward to this one, and the controls were awful. I couldn't control it.

Re: 2018/8/10: Playstation: The Mummy, The Simpsons Wrestling

Nice. Another F- rating. I'd never even heard of this stinker.

Would it have been better if it was just a standard 3D fighter rather than trying to incorporate the wrestling aspect?

Re: 2018/7/30: NES: Pac-Man, Pac-Mania

The trick to making turns in NES Pac-Man is to hold the desired direction in advance. For example, if you're heading down a corridor and there's a left turn ahead, hold left on the dpad until you make the turn. This compensates for the less than perfect responsiveness when turning.

Re: Computer Games 1998-2000

In terms of hardware, consoles historically matched or exceeded typical contemporary gaming PC's. Consoles may have historically rivaled computers in terms of graphics, but computers usually had the edge in terms of genres that are more CPU and memory intensive, and play better with a keyboard/mous...

Re: 2018/7/10: Playstation 4: Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

It's interesting how the Wonder Boy series went in a more adventure-ish direction whereas the Adventure Island series is more about straightfoward platforming (the original AI is the NES port of Wonder Boy).
