Joysticks (1983)

After watching last weeks episode of "Rental Reviews" on Youtube which lead me to the movie "Joysticks" which came out in 1983. Its easiest described as a movie combining "Revenge of the Nerds", "Animal House" and "The Wizard". I quite enjoyed it due its early 80s video game arcade focus. It is prac...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I haven't installed the dlcs yet...! I played through both last week. Pharaohs's Curse is by far the better of the two. Has quite a considerable amount of gameplay included, plenty of side quests, new enemies and some damn beautiful new locations in the Egyptian Afterlife. On my end, felt like play...

Re: Anyone selling a ps1 (or preferably a ps2)?

David, remember that any PS2 or PS3 can play PS1 games, so the PS2 kills two birds with one stone. Your incorrect there. Only the first generation of PS3 consoles, which contain the emotion chip can play ps1 and ps2 games. For the generations of the console after that, only digital downloads work.

Re: Recommended games for 3 or more simultaneous local players

The best one of all is the Rock Band games. Want 3+ players on the one system and screen? No worries, go for it.

Favorite Video Game TV Commercial

What's your favorite video game TV commercial?

For me:

https://youtu.be/CrATmeFoJPE

When I saw that ad on TV for the first time, that was when I realized that games were becoming MUCH more popular. And it made me want a NES (I had a Sega Master System and an Atari 2600 back then).

Local play on one system, not networked, for 3 or more players?
My bad there. Did not see his second post.

I just read "Local" and was thinking good LAN co-op games.

Re: Recommended games for 3 or more simultaneous local players

A few that spring to mind:

Sticking to games with co-op options.

* Command and Conquer / Red Alert - All of them
* Doom 1 & 2
* Heretic and Hexen
* Homeworld 2
* Starcraft

Re: Shooting Gallery Games Recommendations

Even if it's not completely related to a shooting gallery game, feel free to mention them, as they may give me ideas.

"Crossbow" for example, looks awesome. I'd have loved to have played that in the arcades.

Xenon 2.

Loved this game on the Sega Master System. The main new music was just awesome. Gameplay was quite good as well.

Re: Shooting Gallery Games Recommendations

Hmm. Firstly, thanks for all the game mentions. Had a watch of gameplay of all the games mentioned and none of them really match what I'm after. Though Hogan's Alley was a good one. I'm more looking for games where it's on rails, old school before video arcades style. Like: https://www.youtube.com/w...
