Re: All the way through?

Correcting my post above, the All-Stars save system is even more robust than I remembered. You can return to a specific level, not just level 1 of the world that you've selected. I beat the Lost Levels on SMB Deluxe on the GBC and managed to get through it without using save states. While I never pl...

Re: 2015/4/21: Xbox One: Forza Horizon 2

That's something that the "next generation" consoles from Sony and Microsoft have yet to provide, as I understand it. And it's much of the reason why I choose to play this now, rather than hold off until I buy a Xbox One. One thing that you can do now on the PS4 is listen to music on Spot...

Re: The Last of Us GOTY Edition

That's a PS4 product though. He seems to be looking for a PS3 retail option that bundles in the Left Behind expansion pack, on the disc. But while North America hasn't gotten that option in retail form on the PS3, don't forget that the PS3 is region free. If you want that expansion on disc and on th...

Re: All the way through?

Yeah, not only do you have the advantage of being able to restart at the first stage of each world when you see a game over screen, but there are many other advantages. By default, you start with two extra lives. Another good example is reaching World 9, where you're not stuck with just a single lif...

Re: All the way through?

Finished the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2 tonight on the Wii U (Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels, to us Westerners). That includes World 9, which requires the use of no warping throughout the main 8 worlds. I'd like to say that I didn't use save states, but there's just no way that a normal human b...

Re: 2015/4/21: Xbox One: Forza Horizon 2

Nice review, although it leaves me curious what you would think of the 360 original. Not owning a Xbox One, I recently went for the 360 port from Sumo Digital, a studio best known for the home versions of Sega's Outrun 2 line and Sega's kart racers. So far above six hours in, I thought they did a ni...

Re: New Forums Open for Business!

Unfortunately, things seem to be running a bit sluggish right now. Not as bad as it was before, but pages are still taking a good 7 or 8 seconds to move.

Hopefully this is just a momentary issue that fixes itself.

Re: General Conversation forum?

The blu-Ray collection is on my list to get. I heard it got good reviews. One thing that intrigues me is that the picture quality is so great that you can see details that you weren't supposed to be able to see. Things like the crookedness of someone's teeth. Back in the 60's on those old tube tvs ...

Re: Atari Anthology (PS2)

Just noticed that the Critic has never reviewed this collection. I think I went looking for a review before and noticed it, but that surprises me for such an Atari nut. Especially with as many classic compilation reviews as there are around here, yet one of the best is missed. If the Critic sees thi...

He already has done this before. Jr. Pac-Man for the Atari 5200, for instance.
