If I managed to read the katakana of the original title correctly, it should sound like Shenmoo, with the 'e' sound like in 'end' and a long 'u' (as in zoo), just as Titan and the others stated. Speaking of the correct pronounciation of 'Sega', there's a very funny story. When the MegaDrive was firs...

Atmoshpere. If the game manages to get me involved, I easily pass over rough graphics, gamplay glitches and other more or less serious issues. This is especially true for early graphic or cinematic adventure games. Titles that come to my mind are for example Future Wars, Deja Vu, Of Light and Darkne...

I bought it hoping in a nice remake of the original. Unfortunately is a quite different game. Something between a Wipeout clone and StarWars Pod R...

It'd be F-Zero series for me. Don't get me wrong, I like the Wipeout series very much indeed, but the arcade feeling of F-zero is unbeatable. I also found Wipeout's soundtracks less involving - but that's due to my linkings in music. You know which futuristic racer I spent literally days on and of w...

Gunship on the C64 stole my heart and started the passion for flight sims. It endured up to Falcon 3.0 on the PC, when it was replaced by the Master of Orion series.

Alien on the C64: I'm driven crazy by being pursued and forced to act without time to think and on limited, rapidly dropping resources. That's why also Alien vs Predator on the PC is one of the scariest (if not the most one) games I've ever played. Never managed to play it more than 1 hour per sessi...

Brad Zoom in: Better Dead than Alien

I used to play it with my brother on our Amiga 500. Nice Space Invaders clone; a funny comic came along with it, also.

Personally I am not very fond of modded consoles, as I prefer to collect and preserve pristine items. On the other hand, I am aware that, like for the PC environment, there has always been a large number of people wiling to do a number of things to their consoles, from applying stickers to completel...

Sorry for the late arrival. Issue 55 arrived this morning in my mailbox, but I still want to make a point on issue 54. I liked very much the issue, and I share most of the positive criticism that has been moved so far. Anyway, I was quite disappointed by the Intellivision piece. I found it well unde...
