Re: Jelly Monsters (VIC-20)

This game looks amazing. So this Penultimate cart actually runs on a Vic 20 machine? I might need to get one. I know the VIC 20 is outside the console wheelhouse, but the number of game cartridges is not huge - maybe 175. Many are short arcade games that you might enjoy reviewing. Computers factore...

Re: Jelly Monsters (VIC-20)

And this is the real reason for the Great Video Game Crash of '84: Computers had finally become cheap enough for the average person to afford, & they could do as good a job (better!) than video game systems. Jelly Monsters is a pretty amazing arcade experience, but there are many reasons cited ...

Starfield for the PS5?

Bethesda announced a game, Starfield, in production for the next generation of console (possibly PS5 and whatever MS names their console). Its a single player RPG. First, is this just hype?

Isn't it like the 21st Century?
No, he's in the future
Then why is he in an old video game?
*Game Over*
