Re: King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

I rented the documentary back when it came out and quite enjoyed it. And now Billy Mitchell's high scores are being called into question much like that old Dragster record. You should also check out "Ecstasy of Order" which is about some of the greatest Tetris players in the world and the ...

Re: 1977 Game System Reviews

I think the thing that I got the biggest kick out of was not the fact that a magazine like Popular Mechanics had an article in this particular issue that reviewed video game consoles. It was looking at all the old ads for cigarettes, alcohol, television sets, and of course, ads and articles with al...

Re: Worst 50 Games of All Time!

scotland is dead on with his analysis of Karateka. The first time I saw that game it was on an Apple II and it was mind blowing. I don't think I've ever been as impressed with a video game since. Obviously the Atari 7800 was a lousy port but I still love the game. I had an Atari 7800 as a kid. We u...

Re: Worst 50 Games of All Time!

Of course if Dave’s list and his opinion. But how Karate on the 2600 didn’t get in the top 5 I have no idea. I had a friend back in school who purchased it. He got so mad after about 2 minutes he yanked it out of the console and threw it against a wall shattering it. Yeah he had anger management is...

Re: Worst 50 Games of All Time!

Great list but a few things 1-Knowing your severe hatred for Bubsy I can't believe you didn't put any of those games in the top 5 lol 2-You seriously missed out on a game that should absolutely be on the list Street Fighter 2020 for the NES You're probably referring to Raid 2020. Street Fighter: 20...

Re: Sega Sports Pad

So as I was putting together my Top 50 Worst Games list Great Ice Hockey (Sega Master System) was brought to my attention. This game requires the Sega Sports Pad, but it works terribly! So I revisited the game and now I'm wondering if the ball needs to be oiled or something? I don't want to mess it...

You saw the user rating. He has it as a C-.


Haha, thanks. You're right. C- makes a lot more sense.

An F- for Zed Blade? The actual review isn't all that negative aside for complaining about boring stage designs.

Re: Heavy Nova Sold Out!

I was leafing through an old EGM magazine (April 1992) and noticed an ad for Heavy Nova for the Sega Genesis. This is one of the worse games I have ever reviewed, and it was the first time I had seen an ad for it. The ad had a picture of the box and the words SOLD OUT in big white letters. Undernea...
