Re: 2018/5/29: SG-1000: N-Sub

First, awesome to review an SG 1000 game.

Second, Sega and submarine games have a long history going back to 1966s electro mechanical Periscope.

Re: Intellivision Relaunch?

The idea is that the Big Three are expensive, and there should less expensive (and less capable) alternatives. People are ponying up for retro consoles, so could thefe be a niche for an active one?

Sounds familiar, but maybe it could work.

Re: 2018/5/14: Playstation 3: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

And games are much longer than movies; I think of them more like TV shows. I don't need to watch all 200+ extant episodes of Dark Shadows to tell you that it's cheap & slow but pretty entertaining if you like Gothic horror, do I? That's a really good point. I guess it comes down to how much con...

Its got long walkthroughts, cheats, various length reviews, etc. Yet when I wanted to start building a TG-16 collection ( I did not have the TG-16 during its retail life, but came to as a retro console) I really appreciated how this site did ...
