Re: Is the best game you've ever played your favorite game?

It's amazing how liberating it's been for me to stop caring about "best", or even "good/bad" for the most part, and strictly focus on what I do or don't enjoy. Put differently, whether a game is "good" has surprisingly little to do with whether I want to play it . That ...

Re: 2017/5/27: Virtual Boy: Space Squash

Very cool! Oddly enough I was just watching Johan Öberg's review of the same game: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcecGQxvrSs His experience was sufficiently different from yours that it made me curious whether you found the semi-hidden options menu he mentions (by pressing Select on the title scre...

Re: Should we play bad games for ourselves?

I think that is the point the thread is trying to make. I was just thinking, might games be made out to be worse bad, and people exaggerate upon how bad they are? This happens constantly . For many people, a "bad" game is a game that makes them feel confused or helpless because it doesn't...

Re: Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

Dang! How much time did you spend compiling this list? I can't bother to even read the whole list yet alone imagine how much time you must've spent creating this. Ha! :mrgreen: Fortunately I didn't do it all at once, since at least half of it is a compilation of old posts -- I put together the Inte...

Re: Video Games 1 (TI99)

At least as a kid, Parsec always seemed like the system's killer app. It might not shine as brightly now but I still quite like it, especially with speech synthesis. Alpiner is great fun for a while, but I was very disappointed to learn that it doesn't have a proper ending! The manual makes it sound...

Re: Games the VGC Didn't Review (Yet), for Systems Nearing Completion

The US Virtual Boy library is complete, but here are the remaining Japanese games: Innsmouth no Yakata (JPN) SD Gundam Dimension War (JPN) Virtual Lab (JPN) All of them appear playable without the Japanese language -- or if you prefer, there are translation patches for SD Gundam Dimension War and Vi...

Re: Virtual Boy Multicart?

Sadly, I don't know of one that's currently being made -- I'd love to have a FlashBoy Plus, but they go for $200+ on Ebay these days. :( Excited to read that you're continuing with your Virtual Boy reviews, though!

Re: 2017/4/27: Lynx: Baseball Heroes, Ninja Gaiden III

Also, does the Lynx version have limited continues like the NES version? If not, and they're unlimited, then it would remove one of the biggest annoyances of NG3 on the NES, thus helping to justify a higher grade.

Re: AtariAge down?

^It's a false positive based on a single attachment in an old thread. I think it's been reported to the company, but they haven't taken any steps to remove the false positive. Really stupid stuff -- not that that's any surprise from antivirus software makers, who almost never have their customers' b...
