Re: What systems do you want to see more reviews for?

You have covered my favorite systems well enough already. I do like to see reviews for Atari and Sega systems. Not sure how many games you have still not reviewed for each, so re-reviews are fine sometimes. For what it's worth, here are the stats for officially released, retail-era NTSC-U games onl...

Re: All the way through?

I recently beat Dragon's Lair on the NES. It's not really that hard, but one or two stupid design choices turn it into a complete nightmare.

Re: What systems do you want to see more reviews for?

I'd like to see Kingdom: The Far Reaches and Kingdom II: Shadoan get reviewed on the CD-i, though with the caveat that I've only played them on other systems (3DO and Mac respectively). They're both very pretty FMV/adventure games, with Shadoan completing a story that was left half-complete in the l...

Re: What systems do you want to see more reviews for?

On the portable side, the Game.com review set is very close too. Only a few games left. Of those games, only Wheel of Fortune 2 is rare/expensive, but really that game isn't much different than the first Wheel of Fortune on the system. Quite right! I've got a list going here, as you probably know: ...

Re: What systems do you want to see more reviews for?

1. Intellivision.

2. CD-based systems that predate the PlayStation (3DO, CD-i, Sega CD, etc.). Those games tend to make for good reviews.

3. Any system that's getting close to a complete North American review set, especially Atari 5200, 7800, Jaguar, and Sega 32X (only one unreviewed game left!).

Re: 2019/4/27: 3DO: Space Ace

Always super-glad to see more 3DO reviews! Haven't played this one but was always curious about it, ever since the heady days of laserdisc arcade gaming. Are you planning to review the CD-i version of Space Ace? I don't know how it plays, but the CD-i usually has the best FMV quality of all of those...

Re: Talespin (Turbografx)

Based on the feedback I've seen here, I'm interested in trying the NES and Genesis versions too! The Genesis game is fairly awful...but it'll make for an entertaining review. :twisted: I've beaten the game on all difficulties, so I can assure you firsthand: even once you've mastered it, it's a than...

Re: 2019/3/23: Sega CD: Who Shot Johnny Rock?, Ultraverse Prime

Here are some fun new Sega CD reviews for your enjoyment. This system is becoming my go-to because the games are so weird! Niiiiice. (On both counts.) I'm glad you enjoyed Ultraverse Prime! Haven't played Who Shot Johnny Rock yet myself but your description makes it sound like it's everything I fea...

Fire Truck!! That game is magnificent -- one of my favorite arcade games to play, especially with two people. Very simple, but very fun.

Re: 2019/3/2: Genesis: Valis, Exo Squad

I didn't think Exo-Squad was bad at all, though I agree the pseudo-3D shmup stages are poor. I enjoyed the side-scrolling segments quite a bit, though I think that depends on how much patience you have for unusual control schemes. Personally, once I got used to the controls, I thought they worked qu...
