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

That's fair, and thank you for both the explanation, and assuming good faith. Few critics are kind to their critics. In that case, I'd still have to give your final review a C-, compared to your usual standard, for the same reason the instruction book suffered. You both struggled to communicate the ...

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. Apparently, the instruction book knows what its talking about - the only question are why it did...

Re: Lynx Vs. Game Gear

Lately I've been reviewing a lot of Lynx/Game Gear titles, and it seems to me the Lynx had a lot more games with scaling effects like War Birds, Turbo Sub, and S.T.U.N. Runner. The Game Gear seems to have more standard side-scrollers. Unfortunately, I don't think too many of those innovative Lynx g...

Re: New thumbs up/down feature?

I'd prefer people who want to talk about the reviews have to do the work of thinking about where to do it, and putting forth the effort. It's a filter against people who'd just spam their gut reactions all over the place, and means the quality of conversation here is generally higher than places lik...

Re: $30 NES Challenge

https://www.pricecharting.com/console/nes?sort=lowest-price&genre-name= I played it like these were the only games I'd own, just to add more of a challenge. Isn't that the way most people played this game when the system was still on store shelves? So, the first choice was Solar Jetman. Between ...

Re: Double Dragon 2600 vs 7800

The best way to describe the 2600 version is "Unfinished school project." Unfortunately, the ear mutilating lobotomy of a soundtrack was way more of a priority for the 128bytes of system RAM than "Stun effects" and "balanced gameplay". As soon as the first fight begins,...

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

... This guy. This guy knows he can't defend the movie on a narrative or an intellectual level, so now he's trying to turn it into a religious issue. I did defend it on a narrative level. Your response was to simply repeat yourself. Luke can't think bad thoughts, because "NOOOO!" He's jus...

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

I was about to have some fun with DHID's points but you beat me to it. The people who disliked TFA were largely apathetic. The most interesting thing about TLJ so far has been how hard people will reach and forego logic and consistency to publicly dislike it - almost like it's a badge of honor - en...
