Re: Return of Carnival Games

That's cool. A set of boardwalk carny games for VR is a good start. Limited, work on basic gameplay, easily accessible, low bar for graphics. Sounds like a prudent beginning. Baby steps. Climbing wall seems like the greatest challenge, as that uses the whole body. By the way, is Skee Ball a registe...

Re: The Twilight Zone

In the mid 1950's that would've been true. But by the latter 1950's and through the 1960's, most anthology programs were filmed and edited on 35 mm just as The Twilight Zone was. I think Playhouse 90 was videotaped though after they transitioned away from live broadcasts in the mid 1950's, and was ...

Re: Budget icon?

I was thinking of a penny too; just a yellow/orange circle w/a cent sign would do it.

Re: NES games I need to review?

Kirby's Adventure was a late release, and it pushed the NES to it's limits, but you don't like Kriby, and this is the game which set up the franchise's main tropes*. You should review it, for it's historically significant, but I don't know if you'll enjoy it, and, if you gave it a poor grade, you mi...

Re: 2016/12/7: NES: Wrecking Crew, Fist of the North Star

I believe the Japanese version of Wrecking Crew players save levels they created to a tape.

Re: Star Wars Episode VII Discussion ***SPOILERS***

Awwww... I didn't get to say anything about the film. Can I now? I enjoyed The Force Awakens. I must say that first. At some points it seemed a bit too familiar, but most sequels repeat their predecessor's plot points. The FX were good; I particularly like all the practical stuff. Cinematography sty...

Re: 2016/1/2: Colecovision: Bump n Jump, Keystone Kapers

Activision games on other systems always tend to copy the same visuals from the 2600 games, but keystone capers looks at least somewhat different, but still lazy in the graphics department. Apparently that was Activision's policy. Games were supposed to look the same across all systems. Activision ...
