Re: 2019/1/16: Atari 7800: Desert Falcon, Basketbrawl

Good reviews, though I prefer Desert Falcon. Since the gameplay is just variations on a single stage, it's perfect for when you only have a few minutes to spare. You can always shut it off without feeling any regrets about what you've missed. And the power-up system adds some quick exploration, if y...

Re: 2019/1/11: Genesis: Arch Rivals, Wolverine: Adamantium Rage

Rare an easy cheap shot in a review makes me laugh, but the Saturn boxes? That was a three point slam dunk. Well done.

Re: Sanford and Son (Odyssey 2)

That was one of the best videogame reviews ever written, even if there's no game to accompany it. But it drove me mad - how would they render the junk/antiques with Odyssey 2 graphics? The idea that someone in 1981 would even try to make an Odyssey collect-a-thon was so exciting, that my mind simply...

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 ga...

Re: Shocking Content?

I searched for Turbografx reviews through DuckDuckGo's browser, which doesn't track your searches, and this site was still the top result. My guess is that they just don't want M rated content being seen by families unless they're actively seeking it out. It's similar to the way Google's image searc...

Re: Neo Geo (Non Fighters)

The Neo Geo is so bizarre. How often does a console specialize in just one type of game, competing with it's own best efforts, until the best of the best are some of the best games ever made in that genre? And then they keep improving on that formula for over a decade? For fighting game fans like me...

Re: 2018/11/28: Commodore 64: The Dam Busters

That's fair, and thank you for both the explanation, and assuming good faith. Few critics are kind to their critics. In that case, I'd still have to give your final review a C-, compared to your usual standard, for the same reason the instruction book suffered. You both struggled to communicate the ...

Re: 2018/11/28: Commodore 64: The Dam Busters

I normally love his reviews, and it's clear he tried to give this game a fair shake. But despite that, he missed too much of the game to really review it fairly, and he ended his experience in confusion. Apparently, the instruction book knows what its talking about - the only question are why it did...

Re: Lynx Vs. Game Gear

Lately I've been reviewing a lot of Lynx/Game Gear titles, and it seems to me the Lynx had a lot more games with scaling effects like War Birds, Turbo Sub, and S.T.U.N. Runner. The Game Gear seems to have more standard side-scrollers. Unfortunately, I don't think too many of those innovative Lynx g...
