Re: Old game magazines

Old game magazines? I don't think you youngsters know what "old" gaming magazines are. I am talking about Electronic Games magazine back from the early 80's. I still have several issues. Dirk the daring, Miner 2049er, Mario, and many others graced the cover of these issues back when they ...

Re: Things in Video Games you Hate?

A few pet peeves: ⋅ Games that don't offer an instant "Retry?" option when it'd clearly be appropriate, but instead force you to go back to the main menu and re-input all your options/navigate a bunch of menus ⋅ Games where success or failure depends heavily on randomne...

Re: 2016/6/5: Turbografx-16: Davis Cup Tennis, World Court Tennis, World Sports Competition

World Court Tennis uses the same engine as Family Tennis, the best tennis game on the NES/Famicom. I've only played the TG-16 game a little bit, but right away I could tell it was the same -- the serves, forehands, everything in the game had the same crisp, intuitive, yet faithful-to-real-life feel ...

Re: 2012/11/4: Sega CD: Corpse Killer, Heart of the Alien, Lethal Enforcers II: Gunfighters

After playing the ST version and the Mega Drive version I still regard it as a very strong game. But then I played the Sega CD version. Something is off.

I was wondering if I'd get away with that. :mrgreen: I believe you're probably right.

That said, does the LaserActive still get the edge over the Neo Geo?

Re: They have a Pamela Anderson game on the PS2!

Heh, I have the PlayStation (PS1) game, though I haven't played it (it came with a large lot of sealed games). Maybe you could review the PlayStation version as well? :mrgreen:
