Namco Pac Man Plug 'n Play for the Man Cave

<P>At a:  believe me - I suggested to my dad the idea of trying to make three or four more and sell them.  If you are near the metro Detroit area you have probably heard of Gibraltar Trade Centers.  Rent a table and sell 'em.  He has no interest though.  <BR><BR>I had origin...

Namco Pac Man Plug 'n Play for the Man Cave

<P>Here is the closest a poor man will ever come to owning an actual arcade game without buying one....<BR><BR>I have always been impressed with the quality of these Plug 'n Play units - especially the Namco Pac Man.  I was at a local Salvation Army thrift store recently looking at 13" TVs when...

Classic Games You Didn't Like

Alright....I have had a few beers and am feeling brave......<BR><BR>I can barely tolerate Defender.  It's too hard and really when you think of it - there is no real fun to it.  Or maybe it was just too hard.  <BR><BR>Repetitious classic games like Centipede, Pac Man or Dig Dug....the...

Atari 2600 Street Racer

<P>This just reinforces what a great idea having a review spotlight was.  I saw Street Racer yesterday and certainly clicked on it.  Yes, he was pretty harsh!<BR><BR>I have had that game since 1982 and cannot ever picture a scenario where I would put it into my 2600 today to play.  Bu...

Thunder Castle for Intellivision

I cannot believe how freaking awesome this game is!  I just want to talk about it....<BR><BR>The Critic did nail it - this is an incredibly difficult game and a skill level would have been nice.  But the music and graphics (I am absolutely MESMERIZED by that wizard graphic you see on the s...

Missing Atari 2600 Reviews?

Yes, a wee little bit off topic.........but you can add Coleco's Lady Bug to this list.<BR><BR>I'm only being observant since I have been playing the heck out of it lately.  A great game.  And I had thought all Intellivision Coleco ports just sucked eggs.  Lady Bug is quality!<BR><BR>...

Grab those old TVs!

You are preaching to the choir Critic!  I have 4 (three in reserve and the one I currently use) CRT TVs.  It is truly the essence of hoarding - one day these "relics" will become difficult to locate if you need one.<BR><BR>I would like to think that my "stash" will last me for the rest of ...

2013/2/13: Commodore 64: Computer Ambush, Jumpman, Jumpman Junior

Thank you for the Jumpman reviews!!!!<BR><BR>I enjoyed the "dork points" comment....it is dorky (but very satisifying) to see TED listed 20 times on the high score screen.  I think even more credit should be directed at the randomizer option.  When they come up, it allows us less-talented ...

2013/2/2: Colecovision: Heist, The, Rocky

Your updated review (and old one as well) really do convey the disappointment of this game.  It looks awesome and those big-ass controllers with the four buttons should have been well-suited for a boxing game.<BR><BR>I just feel sorry for the people that dropped $$ on Rocky, baseball & foot...
