Re: Saving a season on NES Tecmo Super Bowl

Did the game boot up correctly on the first try? I've always found it risky for battery backed save data when multiple attempts are necessary to start the game due to poor contact being made between the cartridge and the console's pin connectors. It's a recipe for losing that save data and is one re...

Re: 2015/8/15: Xbox One: Rory McIlroy PGA Tour

I agree completely that it's a sham. It's yet another way of selling the gamer an unfinished product. It's just as bad as sending out something full of shoddy workmanship that's full of technical issues, like some other big publishers have attempted in recent years like Ubisoft. But for the online g...

Re: Rare Replay (XboxOne)

While it would've been a tight squeeze to fit everything into 50 gigs, I think it's a shame that at least the XBLA titles weren't included from the get go. A retail edition of their three N64 remasters was a significant part of the allure of this collection. I'll still get it, but I'm slightly less ...

Re: Zaxxon on consoles?

Not only is it on Sega Genesis Collection for the PS2 and Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection for the 360/PS3, but the arcade sequel and spin-off are also available in arcade perfect form on modern compilations. Both of which never had a port to a home console or computer back when they were new. Fu...

Re: Atari Max cartridges?

A new, much more conventional looking option has appeared for an Atari 8 bit multicart. :) http://atariage.com/forums/topic/241796-ultimate-cart-sd-multicart-preorders-thread/ The only thing I'm not clear on is support for disk and tape images. Also, we have another option called the 'The!Cart"...

Re: Will gamer expectations and the cost of making games eventually kill the industry?

Some stuff seems to be recovering though as the industry stabilizes after a difficult HD transition. The dedicated rally racer for instance, extinct for a number of years before being resurrected back around 2010, is coming back with a vengeance. No less than three dedicated rally racers are schedul...

Re: 2015/8/15: Xbox One: Rory McIlroy PGA Tour

Sounds bad where content is concerned, but I've read that this isn't going to be annualized anymore. This base will be instead be taken forward and expanded, much of it with free DLC like new courses and golfers. So while it has issues, it does seem like there's promise here. They've already release...

Re: Sega SG-1000

Before someone else mentions it, Telegames (Best known for publishing some late Jaguar releases) actually distributed a clone system in the West that supported Colecovision and SG-1000 titles in the late 1990's. I avoided it though, since it had a very poor reputation back then and from the occasion...
