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.

Gottlieb's Reactor, complete with track-ball and the music turned up loud! It's just so weird and fun!

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...

Re: Dig Dug - any fans?

I used to skip lunches at school , to save enough money to play Dig Dug at the arcade on the weekend. Always loved this game. I prefer the emulated coin-op-perfect versions that are available on every system. But the 5200 and second A8 version (not the first one which was clunky - the 2nd one - port...

Re: Superman games

Agree on the idea of having certain solutions be a puzzle - like how to put out a building fire. It would be fun to have a game where you could apply Superman's abilities in many different ways. Just like Spider-Man 2's "get the lost balloon", a Superman open-city game could have "save the kitten" m...

Justice League Task Force had the problem of being one of the worst games ever made. Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe isn't too bad though.
Agreed - it looks like it could be a fun 2D fighter , but the game has bad control and is super dull.

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/topi...

Re: Superman games

I have given this question some thought, over the years. How to actually make a good Superman game? Well, how about lots of natural disasters mixed with some super-villains, with bonus rounds too where you see how many common crooks you can round up in a night, or stop a train without killing everyo...

Re: Good & bad comic book superhero games

Good: All the Spider-man games were good , even the Atari 2600 one and the newer 360/PS3 ones. My faves were: Spider-man (SEGA for Mega Drive and Mega CD). The CD version has more moves, faster movement, better animation and more variety, but they are otherwise the same game. Spider-man (Playstation...

Re: Qix - Taito Legends

The Atari 5200 version of Qix (different from the slower atari 8bit computer version) was a great port, and one of the most fun 5200 games. I played it a lot, and still do play it in atariage.com 5200 forum High Score Competitions. I love Volfied on the Taito Legends compilation on Xbox. Great sequel.

Re: From the forum issue 115 - Adventure games

My fave would have to be either Tomb Raider on Saturn/PS, or Flashback: Quest for Identity, on SEGA Genesis. Concerning Flasbhack, I loved the sci-fi worlds and storyline. The graphics and animation were fantastic. I liked the pacing of the game overall. I'm not wanting to start an argument, but ar...
