Re: What is your fave Bond game 360?

As a huge Bond fan (especially Daniel Craig) I was thinking about doing a James Bond special. However, when I look back I really panned most of the James Bond games. Outside of Goldeneye there are really no standout titles that I know of. The World Is Not Enough has separate PlayStation and N64 ada...

Re: Should I buy an original Game Boy?

You have every other system under the sun, so why not? I've never heard of a Game Boy screen wearing out; I assume that the ones with replaced screens suffered some kind of direct damage. I think that the controls might also be less laggy on the Super Game Boy than on the Game Boy Player, but I don'...

Metroid II could use a review. Fantastic game.

Re: In Praise of Short Games

If he gets around to Shadow of the Beast, he should review the Lynx version. It's substantially redesigned and much better than the original.

Re: 2019/5/30: Game Boy: Super Mario Land, Duck Tales

The real problem with Super Mario Land is how short it is. You can blow through the whole thing in under half an hour without breaking a sweat.

Re: 2019/5/30: Game Boy: Super Mario Land, Duck Tales

Not typos per se but errors in wording: In the Super Mario Land review, "a run for the money" should be "a run for their money", and in the DuckTales review, "the quality of the stages are uneven" should be "the quality of the stages is uneven".

Re: Ebay: Then and Now

If I want to buy an out-of-print book or album, I go to AbeBooks or Discogs first and eBay if what I'm looking for doesn't turn up there, but eBay remains the first pl...

Re: 2019/5/27: Intellivision: River Raid, Super Cobra

Typo: "You'll occasionally encounter 'demilitarized' zones in which enemies but sparse" in the River Raid review. The buttons for the game variations threw me for a loop. I figured that the 3, 6, and 9 keys must be used for something else, but nope; the overlay is empty space down the righ...
