Re: 2018/5/20: Game Boy: Tetris, Centipede

Tetris is my kryptonite. Difficulty 9? I love dancing in the cemetery with Ghouls N' Ghosts. I won't ever admit to myself how often I replay Battletoads, thrilling to the white knuckle rush of adrenaline where I needed to stop consciously existing long enough to survive stage 3. And I've even played...

Re: 2018/4/29: Game Boy Color: Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

For me, the fetch quests are part of the experience. It's about getting to know people, and helping them, without any obstacles getting in the way that I'm not capable of handling. And being rewarded for it, which isn't always the case in real life. It's just the simplicity of it all. It helps me me...

Re: 2018/4/29: Game Boy Color: Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Another Gameboy review? Thank you! Item juggling headaches aside, I loved this game for the storytelling. It's in the same spirit as Majora's Mask, even if not quite as dark. At least not for most of it. SPOILER WARNING: I still can't believe Nintendo made a game where the villains are the ones tryi...

Re: 2018/4/16: NES: Dizzy the Adventurer, Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy, The

I found a mistake in your review: The Aladdin deck enhancer was just a way for Codemasters to save money when publishing unlicensed titles. The real reason you can't play its carts on a standard NES is only because they're missing most of the cart, and the lockout bypass. It doesn't ever actually en...

Re: 2018/3/26: Atari XEGS: Pole Position, Crystal Castles

I really miss the days when games like Pole Position could be advertised like this:

If the actual game played like that, I wouldn't need another racing game, ever.

Re: C64 mini

This thing really deserves more credit. Some of these games, like Paradroid and Creatures, were considered top tier. Some, like the Temple of Apshai trilogy, are historically important. And others, like Highway Encounter, School Daze, and Monty on the Run, are some of the games that got me into the ...

Re: Design a system for 1990

My dream machine for 1990? After thinking it over for 5 minutes (like many actual hardware manufacturers.) - Twin 68000 cpus, clocked at the highest speed we can get under cost, and with just enough ram to allow them to smoothly share the workload together, instead of the extra complexity being a ha...

Re: 2018/3/22: Turbografx-16: Space Harrier, Turrican

This is just a really bad port of Turrican, by the same folks who brought it to the Genesis. Aside from not even trying to take advantage of the platform, they increased the difficulty in order to prevent kids from beating it during a rental. But the problem is that it was already a rock hard game d...

Re: The Sad State of Future Retro Gaming (and Managing Storage on New Consoles)

My guess is that the AAA industry wants retro gaming to fail, unless it's reselling the past to you itself. Past a certain point, there's not going to be any real leap forward in graphics technology. We've already reached the point where you need to be a snob to care. More than that, who has time to...

Re: PSA: Zen Studios Has Announced It Has Cancelled The Patch For Pinball FX3 On Nintendo Switch

Those who think the industry used to patch broken games should check out Final Fantasy on the NES. No elemental damage from your elemental weapons. Status spells that do nothing or the exact opposite of what they claim to do. And best of all, the INT stat is meaningless. Many players dealing with ve...
