Re: 3DO VR Stalker 'improved version'?

That's a great question. I've read the same thing and wondered that myself. I didn't expect to like VR Stalker, but a couple years ago I played through 4-5 levels and actually enjoyed it quite a bit. The method of earning new planes is confusing, though -- I never did quite understand how it worked,...

Re: "It's terrible but I like it anyway" games

I'll also throw in Sword of Sodan (the Megadrive/Genesis version), brutal and satisfying. It's flawed, it's choppy, it's very basic... it's fun. Nice to see someone else who enjoys Sword of Sodan! I've taken a lot of guff over the years for being fond of SoS, but mastering the game and working my w...

Re: 2015/2/14: Philips CD-i: Mega Maze, Xplora 1: Peter Gabriel's Secret World

I have an odd yen to get a CD-i, but the battery problems and high cost put me off. Still, I suspect I'll pick one up sooner or later. Well, I finally got that CD-i! I'm enjoying it, though I really need to get a proper controller as the remote control is clumsy and laggy. I've spent time with Keth...

Re: New Forums Open for Business!

Is it possible to merge my new account with my old one ("goldenband1")? No worries if not, I just want to make sure I haven't done anything wrong.
