Re: New arcade machine

I recently added a new full-sized stand-up arcade game to my collection. I only had room for one more, so I've made a point to keep that spot open in case one would fall into my lap. That wasn't going to happen so I began shopping around recently. Anyone want to guess what I got? My previous machin...

He's nothing if you can reach him with the holy water. Otherwise he's almost impossible.

Comments about the review welcome!



It's a bit disappointing that a game called "Unholy Night: The Darkness Hunter" is a fighter. I would expect something more along the lines of Castlevania and Ghosts n Goblins.

Re: Weirdest Things in Games?

Spiderman, Batman, Godzilla and the Terminator showing up as bosses in Revenge of Shinobi (later revised for copyright reasons). Wowa, that is crazy! I had know idea. I'm pretty sure I've got that game and have never played it. That's awesome though. It's a great game if you're into ninja games, bu...

Re: Most addictive games (Arcade)

As a kid I was addicted to Yie Ar Kung Fu. A local grocery store had a machine and I kept begging for quarters from my parents to play.

I could reach the last guy, but could never beat him. I've never been able to beat him, not even now on MAME.

Re: Most addictive games (Arcade)

These are both the NES versions, but two games that I often play for high score are Marble Madness and Tetris (Nintendo). My highest Tetris score is somewhere in the 160k range. I'm not very good at it. My best Marble Madness score is 171k. I've only managed to score that high once. My usual average...

Re: 2017/7/30: Intellivision: Congo Bongo

The graphics are kind of weird.The isometric backdrop is nice and detailed, and then the sprites kinda look like they're from an LCD game.
