Re: What are you currently playing?

Pole Position II, from the PlayStation Namco Classics disc #3. That Namco track hairpin turn prevents me from taking the Qualifying Pole Position every time. But endlessly fun as a racer.

I never had time for Alex Kidd games. The character never appealed to me either. Sorry!

Re: From the forum issue 208: Eighties pick'em

I know Genesis / Mega Drive was 80s, but not to me so ... Console pick is Atari 7800, which is compatible with 2600 library. So I can play River Raid, Kaboom, and the 7800 Food Fight. And the homebrews! Computer is Atari 800XL. So many great games and sweet POKEY sounds. I'd have picked 5200 for my ...

Dug out my Saturn. Panzer Dragoon, PDZ, and also the Williams disc, mostly getting higher scores on Bubbles and Robotron. And Shinobi Legions.

Re: new Atari 8bit computer hombrew - Adventure II XE

I thought I had a thread somewhere on this forum ... Here is an update - see link to the AtariAge.com thread, the demo should work with Atarimax 1mbit/8mbit carts. Give it a try, report back what you think here or (preferably) in the AA thread. Hope you have some fun! http://atariage.com/forums/top...

Re: From The Forum issue 187 - Favourite SNK game

Another vote for the very fun Neo Turf Masters, great fast and fun round of club-bending Golf. I laugh at "Oh NOOOO!" after a particularly disappointing hole.

Re: What's Your Favorite Driving/Racing Game Ever?

I enjoy a lot of them. My favorite ever? Probably sit-down coinop Pole Position. Then Daytona USA, and 3rd is SEGA Super GT / Scud Race.

Re: From the forum: 185

It was the coinop original, in the front of a department store. I think I was only 10 or 11 years old. It was the coolest thing I'd ever seen, but it intimidated me so I just watched others play it. Eventually the game was everywhere so I played it a lot. By the time I finally got my 2600, SI seemed...

Re: From the forum issue 129 - Worst sticking points

Beating the 2nd stage Sinistar. Not sure I ever did it.
Also, getting to M. Bison (Vega in Japanese version) and trying to beat him in Street Fighter 2. Never could beat him.

Re: How Good Is Gamecube Compatibility on the Wii?

we play Gamecube games more than Wii games, on our first-gen Wii console. I love seeing the Gamecube games via component cable and using progressive scan option, on my 42" plasma TV. Gamecube controllers have short cables , and our Wii is pretty far from the couch, sitting on the TV/Entertainment st...
