Re: Fun/Cool/Interesting Videos Thread

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPEpGHya01c 90's Search Engine Commercials. Yahoo's is funny. Lycos' and HotBot's aren't too bad. Excite's two ads are pretty bad; they barely tell you what Excite does . And who remembers Snap, NBC's short-lived directory? I've looked at it before in the Internet Arc...

Re: Missing Jaguar Games

How about Black Ice White Noise? It was supposed to be a free roaming cyberpunk adventure on the Jag CD. Got to early alpha stages before Atari shut down the Jaguar's development department. Someone found a prototype, and I think you can still buy a copy: http://www.bjwest.com/BIWN/ There's not much...

Re: Missing Jaguar Games

Native has my favorite 2d graphics of all time. Maybe not the best but my favorite. Sure, reasonable enough... The Jaguar is the only system from the 5th gen that's graphics don't look totally obsolete. I'm not talking about the quality of the games, but the graphics in games like Hover Strike and ...

Re: Missing Jaguar Games

The Native clip does have a large, well animated character. Background's a mess, but that preying mantis looks cool.

A Philco Predicta: https://www.tvhistory.tv/1950-59-PHILCO.htm

Hook up an Atari 2600, plug in a Spacewar Cart, and it's the closest you'll come to owning a Computer Space cabinet without, you know, buying a Computer Space cabinet. ;)

Re: Missing Jaguar Games

There were a lot of rumored titles; which ones were started is a matter of debate. Here's Zero 5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6IjRir-2KMM I think it was actually released, perhaps by Telegames. I've thought for awhile Phase Zero looked like it had potential: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OPcF...

Re: Recommend some anime!

Ardman still makes stop mot6ion, yes, tho he has done some CG work (Flushed Away,) and his more recent stop-mo films have used some CG FX. As far as I know hand-drawn computer animation is less expensive than 3D CGI. Not sure how much more it would cost to do it drawn animation with cells. Animation...

Re: The trash that is on Amazon Prime

I might suggest Sandy Frank's Fugitive Alien movies. They're edited from a Japanese TV series, and have a Message From Space vibe. (At least the one I saw had a Message From Space vibe.) I've not seen any of the others you listed, tho I'm interested in Starcrash . From what I've seen, Luigi Cozzi ha...

Re: Recommend some anime!

I guess I misunderstood. When I read "traditional hand-drawn animation" I was thinking classic animation cells. I was wondering how in the world that would be viable today. Companies like Filmation always found ways to do it cheaply, and I'm sure computers could help by producing the inte...

Re: Worst 50 Games of All Time!

I'm a bit surprised SwordQuest WaterWorld was listed; usually it's considered the best game in the series. Was the concept simply too old by the time it came out? Is it too expensive/rare to justify the price? Granted, none of the SwordQuest games are good ; they're just about moving items between r...
