I mean look at it, IT USES A VCR, the games are less interactive than Dragons Lair.

It really is a load of s**te

Steady on now. If that thing has any fans anywhere they're bound to be on this forum. :lol:
Im the closest that thing has to a fan due to owning two of them and three tapes of it.

Im considering making a homebrew game for it
I so want to see that. It can't be any worse than the games already out there.

So, how about recording five minutes of Call of Duty being played and overlaying some targets on it? Should be a blast. :D

Nah, do it with live action figures overlaid on a 'not quite fitting' background, like Lethal Enforcers style. Make it deliberately naff to match the system. Lets have you and the parrot popping up from behind cars and bins to take potshots.

I've just discovered the Captain Power TV show:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_P ... ctive_game

Toys that interact with the show/VHS! Its like Action Max in disguise. Except at least you can play with the toys and have fun.
