Re: 2015/8/4: Dreamcast: Spirit of Speed 1937, Super Magnetic Neo

Spirit of Speed was a big disappointment in sim racing circles on the PC when it was new. Everyone was expecting a 1930's counterpart to Grand Prix Legends, a PC racing simulation based on the 1967 F1 season that was a benchmark that racing sims aimed for for years after its 1998 release. Instead, t...

Re: Factual error thread

I've mentioned it before, but your Ridge Racer 64 and Ridge Racer DS reviews don't align. Ridge Racer DS is a straight 1:1 port of the N64 title rather than a remake or an original entry in this franchise, yet it's rated as a D+ compared to A- for the N64 original. But the only difference of note be...

Re: I feel the GameCube is vastly overrated.

I feel like the GameCube gets a bum rap where 3rd party support is concerned. Sure, it lacked Grand Theft Auto, releases started to dry up late in its generation while the Xbox was still going strong for another year or so further in that department, disc capacity sometimes was an issue as time prog...

Re: Rare Replay (Xbox One)

Anyway not only do you get 30 classic on a disc, but at a budget price too ($30 I think). I think we need to support compilations like this to encourage them to make more! I might even need to stop badmouthing the Xbox One.... nah! Just to warn you, it sadly appears to require an online activation ...

Re: Kickman

I don't know if it got a cartridge release, but there's a nice clone on the Atari 8 bits called Pinhead. I've emulated it a few times over the years and thought it played nice. If you ever bought and figured out that AtariMax multicart that you've posted asking about a few years back, you could prob...

Re: Atari Anthology (PS2)

I was thinking about all three. Atari was infamous for how they treated their programmers. They refused to give them credit, assigned them to projects that they weren't passionate about (Such as Pac-Man with Tod Fyre, for perhaps the best example), had tight deadlines that simply weren't realistic (...

Re: Atari Anthology (PS2)

Discounting the arcade categories, I recommend the following... Some of these I think you've already played, but I didn't feel like going back and scanning the thread to check. I've also eliminated some paddle releases that I think are worth some time on the real deal, but are too crippled on this c...
