Laser Disc Arcade Games

[QUOTE=gleebergloben] <br />For those who dislike laser disc games, I can certainly understand why. But when they first came out, it seemed like the gaming world and the technology was moving at the speed of light. <br /><br />[/QUOTE]<br /><br />I second this.  It did seem like the most amazin...

2014/8/17: Intellivision: Burgertime, Super Chef BT

I think most would agree that the Intellivision version is quite a bit easier when compared to the Colecovision, NES and the 2600 ports.  Man, that NES version is particularly brutal.  I always thought the 2600 edition was pretty good and underrated by many.<br /><br />The Intellivision BT...

2014/8/17: Intellivision: Burgertime, Super Chef BT

Thanks for the Intellivision reviews - always great to read!  Burgertime for Intellivision is just outstanding.  My only gripe was that it is just seven levels!  And when I had finally learned about the existence of Super Chef BT it was too late.  Sold out.  And I ...

Most... Expensive...Game...Ever

I confessed in an earlier thread that I bid over $400.00 (and <em>lost) </em>on Bounty Bob Strikes Back for the Atari 5200.  Drinking and E-Baying do not mix......the next morning when I awoke and truly realized how lucky I was that someone had bid higher was all the aspirin I needed.  I w...

RIP Robin Williams

Thanks scotland17 for supplying the justified video game tie-in for Robin Williams.  I forgot about that awful Popeye movie.  While not a big fan of his comedies I did like a few of his serious roles (Dead Poets and Good Will Hunting.)<br /><br />While I am mostly unaffected by t...

Colecovision Bump N Jump with the steering wheel

Good stuff there snakeboy...... I'm most certain that I've read that thread before but only really appreciated it beginning today.  You have to play the game for yourself to truly form to a solid opinion.  But one of the beauties of this website is that it can give...

2014/8/3: Intellivision: Tennis, Championship Tennis, Super Pro Tennis

While it is always great to see new & updated Intellivision reviews I got to be honest - tennis in real life and in video games holds absolutely no interest for me.<br /><br />I don't think I am being too narrow-minded.  I don't like (or play) hockey or golf nor do I ever watch these s...

Colecovision Bump N Jump with the steering wheel

I made a great new discovery yesterday - Bump N Jump played with the steering module is awesome!  The control is precise (no drifting) and using the gas pedal to accelerate (or slow down) really conveys the feeling of driving more so than on Turbo.  <br /><br />Turbo is awesome too but the...

2014/7/26: Atari XEGS: Boulder Dash, Pacific Coast Highway, Tapper

Boulder Dash is my favorite new game of 2014.  I never paid any attention to it back in the 1980's and only got curious about it when I read in an Intellivision forum in Atari Age that an Inty version is in the works.  I checked my Commodore 64 disk inventory and happily discovered I ...

Blowing on your NES cartridges - silly or sound?

After a random discussion this past winter with a co-worker about holding a Tecmo Super Bowl tournament I continued dealing with my mid-life crisis by purchasing a bunch of NES games (including last year's updated Tecmo game with J.J. Watts on the label) and a top-loading NES.<br /><b...
