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...

Re: Reproduction carts?

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

Re: General Conversation forum?

Seems odd to limit it so greatly, when just the usual no "politics and religion rule" could apply to prevent the annoyance that off-topic forums can create at times. And perhaps expand that to cover morality issues, that don't really fall into either topic but can lead to very heated discu...

Re: Atari Anthology (PS2)

I love that game :) And unlike some others, this one is perfect just on the default settings. The difficulty switches do nothing, and the novice difficulty setting (The default game 1) still provides a challenge as far as I'm concerned. It's a rare day when I break 100,000 points, so little reason t...

Re: All the way through?

The only things I'd say against it is that the first level is a bit slow and basic (which is understandable) and sometimes it's hard to tell if you're going to land on a platform or not (which may be partially attributed to the fact that I haven't played a lot of 3d platformers in the past). Haven'...

Re: How to Win at Video Games (1982 Book)

The Digital Press library has this and many other classic books scanned in and freely available. http://www.digitpress.com/library/books/book_how_to_win_at_video_games_complete_guide.pdf About the only worthwhile resource there these days, compared to 15 years ago when it was the go-to place for any...

Re: Mario Kart DLC Pack 2 details

The patch that adds this is not out until the DLC itself, but the impressions I've read (And seen, such as with the video linked to above), it's definitely a big increase in speed. Just look how far you can jump on the F-Zero track for an easy comparison. There's no way as far as I can see it, that ...

Re: Mario Kart DLC Pack 2 details

At least the two GBA tracks are so changed up, that they're almost unrecognizable outside of their theme. So it's really more like 6 of the 8 tracks are original. Looking forward to Sunset Wilds, another Super Circuit track, getting similar treatment in some future Mario Kart release. As far as I ca...
