Re: Move over, ATGames. M2 is here to save the day!

Saturn & Dreamcast are probably still to hard to emulate; Master System & Game Gear probably don't have enough nostalgia behind them to be marketable. Very true on the difficulty in emulating the Saturn and Dreamcast. It is not as cost effective to mass produce emulations of those two and m...

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

Huzzah for Game Boy Classic Reviews! SML is a fun game, though my issue with it was that World 2 and 3 always seemed to not be as enjoyable as 1 or 4 overall. The music more than made up for it, though... ;-) Duck Tales 1 GB was a decent game, though I preferred the sequel over the first GB one. Lov...

VideoGameCritic wrote:I would buy this if the physical media was readily available. $30 is pushing it, but if the games are high quality (like Earthworm Jim) it might be worth it.

As a download only system the Amico would basically just be a next-gen Ouya. Who in the hell wants that?


Very good question...

Re: i'm very excited about the upcoming Intellivision Amico

Not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, I like the idea of the intellivision receiving more exposure and getting a nice overhaul. On the other hand, where micro consoles (aka Mini Consoles) tend to do well on their own, not being self-contained and having downloadable games would be a turn ...

Re: RIP Ouya and the downside of digital only consoles.

True, they want to fight piracy, but at the same time DRM causes lots of problems. I completely agree. Unfortunately, developers have to get paid to keep the roof over their heads, and DRM is one of the more successful anti-piracy processes. Also unfortunately, as servers are shut down over time, d...

Re: RIP Ouya and the downside of digital only consoles.

After full reading of the article linked above here's a quote from Razer "Will I still be able to play games on OUYA?" "You will be able to play games via the OUYA platform until June 25, 2019. Once it has been shut down, access to the Discover section will no longer be available. Ga...

Re: Happy 20th anniversary!

Yes, they were good then, and have improved as you went along. Until we got devices that let us read web pages regularly, I kept binders that I updated regularly for references as I bought games... I disagreed with some reviews (and still do; I have a soft spot for the Lion King Game Boy (Original) ...

Re: Sega CD or 32 X?

While growing up in the 90s, I wasn't too interested in the Sega CD articles I saw in the magazines of the day, finding myself more interested in the Amiga CD32 and the Atari Jaguar as far as non-Game Boy/SNES/Genesis systems went. As an adult, I love the RPGs on the system (Lunar, Popful Mail), tho...

Re: Super Mario Land (GB)

Mario Land is a good game, and is worth remembering for more than just the awesome soundtrack. Mario Land 2 was a good game, but I have to say that Mario Land 3 is my favorite of the "trilogy," though many forget that Super Mario Land 3 - Wario Land exists, as it was quickly overshadowed b...
