Re: Ghostbusters (Sega Master System)

This review almost makes me want to check out the Master System version, just to see how much better than the 2600 version it is. Also, to kill the song from the 2600 version, which won't stop playing in my head now that you've reminded me about what it's actually like to play any version of this g...

Re: Bad game names

Donkey Kong is such a classic, iconic title that I can't imagine the games being called anything else. I would hardly list it as a bad name. It just fits for some reason. I've always liked it.

Maybe it's the D grade for Bloodborne.

Re: Soulja Boy is a smooth criminal!

Would he actually go to prison or just get sued by Nintendo? He'll probably just get sued and lose whatever money he made from selling these.

Re: Neo Geo (Non Fighters)

To each his own. I don’t like substance in my video games. I especially like reading the storylines with these 90’s action games. The Metal Slug story line is interesting to me. The two main characters Marco and Tarma are resistance fighters or something I can’t understand. They’re friends or somet...

Re: Bad game names

It's always seemed straightforward to me: "Gaia" like the Greek goddess of the Earth, plus "res" pronounced either like the first part of "rest" or (more naturally) the first syllable of "resident". Maybe they were trying for a "Gaia" + "Ares&q...

I own the original cart and case. That's sufficient proof for me that it exists. :)

I've always pronounced the name like "guy-res" or "guy-ris."

Re: Neo Geo (Non Fighters)

Shock Troopers is a cool MERCS clone. Last Resort is a fun horizontal shmup.

Neo Geo did have the best graphics, but graphics aren't everything. I'll take the best SNES games such as Super Metroid, Super Punch-Out, Secret of Mana and DKC over the Neo Geo library any day.
