You referred to Montezuma's Revenge for Colecovision. You should check out the SMS port sometime.

Re: Madden Tournament Shooting

The gaming aspect doesn't make this story any different from other recent shootings. The shooter was a disturbed individual with a documented history of mental health issues who got hold of a gun. eSports are no different from professional chess. They require skill and dedication, and, at the upper...

Re: Most Disappointing Games?

Back in the day, Atari 2600 Pac-Man had to be the most disappointing arcade port.

Dreamcast Daytona was a colossal disappointment for me personally. I was a huge fan of Gran Turismo and Ridge Racer Type 4, and was really looking forward to this one, and the controls were awful. I couldn't control it.

Re: 2018/8/10: Playstation: The Mummy, The Simpsons Wrestling

Nice. Another F- rating. I'd never even heard of this stinker.

Would it have been better if it was just a standard 3D fighter rather than trying to incorporate the wrestling aspect?

Re: 2018/7/30: NES: Pac-Man, Pac-Mania

The trick to making turns in NES Pac-Man is to hold the desired direction in advance. For example, if you're heading down a corridor and there's a left turn ahead, hold left on the dpad until you make the turn. This compensates for the less than perfect responsiveness when turning.

Re: Computer Games 1998-2000

In terms of hardware, consoles historically matched or exceeded typical contemporary gaming PC's. Consoles may have historically rivaled computers in terms of graphics, but computers usually had the edge in terms of genres that are more CPU and memory intensive, and play better with a keyboard/mous...

Re: 2018/7/10: Playstation 4: Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap

It's interesting how the Wonder Boy series went in a more adventure-ish direction whereas the Adventure Island series is more about straightfoward platforming (the original AI is the NES port of Wonder Boy).

Re: Computer Games 1998-2000

First of all, better graphics doesn't necessarily mean better games. You seem to judge everything in terms of graphics quality. I guess I should throw away my NES and buy a PS4.

Also, the Dreamcast came out in 1999 and its graphics were much better than PSX and N64, and rivaled PC games.

Re: 2018/6/29: Genesis: Calibur 50, Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure

I had the Pitfall the Mayan Adventure for SNES back in the day, and I thought that it was boring even back then.

I imagine that the Genesis version is the same but with slightly less good graphics.

Re: The Horror Movie Lovers Thread

Saw "I Bury the Living" this weekend. Society : Most of the movie is a cartoonish, blackly-comic take on The Stepford Wives/Invasion of the Body Snatchers in a 80s high-school movie setting. It's not bad, but what makes the film remarkable is the final 20 minutes of twisted, highly-invent...
