Re: Trying to identify a Pokémon from Ruby and Sapphire

Don't know much beyond the 1st generation, but I like solving things.

Searching Serebii, Bulbagarden, or The Pokemon Wiki with Google brings up nothing for "luri."

I'll try to try some other engines later. Maybe other Pokemon sites too.

Re: The printed page

The Dying Earth has a cool cover; maybe I'll look for it. Pulp novels and magazines usually had really nice cover art. One of my favorite's is City at World's End by Edmond Hamilton. This is not the Dr. Who novel, but an earlier book, from 1951, about a city that was thrust into the future at the s...

Roger Moore Died. :(

Not everyone's favorite Bond, but not the worst. (Timothy Dalton.)

He did have a nice suave style, and he starred in the only Bond movie where someone walked on the backs of real crocodiles.

Re: The printed page

Read Servants of the Wankh by Jack Vance. Basic Plot: nA man crash lands on an alien planet. For the most part it's about people moving from place to place with one character describing the cultures of those places. It gets more interesting near the end (they try to steal a spaceship,) but still lac...

Re: Favorite old websites?

And now ScrubTheWeb, a 20+ year old search engine I enjoyed has decided to call it quits. :(

Computer Creates Feature-Length Film from Single Photo

Granted, 56 minutes is a short feature, but it's still a feature. Doesn't sound like an interesting movie; just a technical novelty.

Re: "Mostly Gone" Genres

3D maze games, like Escape the Mindmaster, HoverTank, Faceball, etc.

These were novel 20+ years ago, but now that systems can render more complex scenes you hardly ever see a good, ole' maze.

Re: Themes you never see in games

Arabian Nights games.

There was Prince of Persia, Magic carpet, an Amiga game, a few levels in Crash Bandicoot: Warped, and maybe a PS2 game. Have there been any more? I'd like to see a Sinbad game with Harryhausen style monsters.

Re: "Mostly Gone" Genres

Maze Games - One of the most iconic games of all time, Pac-Man, is a maze game, many of which had some 'cat and mouse' components. Is that genre mostly extinct now. It seems to have been tied pretty strongly with an overhead 2D view. Now that is sad; I love maze games, and you're right, I haven't s...

Re: What inspired you to collect retro games?

I was started on classic games. Went to a birthday party at a skating rink. Didn't know how to skate. There was an arcade, so my mom showed me how to play Pac-Man. When we got home my dad pulled out the Atari, & I got to see Tod Fry's craftsmanship. Not that bad, to a 6 year old :lol: . I kept m...
