Looks like you got your Atari's confused.

I did wonder. I made sure to put 'Atari Games' at the top of the review instead of just 'Atari' or 'Atari Corp' though.

I think I just assumed for some reason that both Atari's had gone down the dumper after the split (if that's where you're saying I'm wrong). I read both parts of the RG Atari lookback too :oops: :lol:

Still a horrible game though and I'd love to know more about it. Who was responsible this mess? There must have been something in the water in the early 90's because there were loads of arcade cabs like Primal Rage 2 and Tattoo Assassins getting canned before even being released.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Because of the new Syndicate trailer being released, I thought I'd look at the Amiga/PC classic, mainly the Amiga version.

If my blog wasn't filled with enough freakish stuff already, it's getting a bit more spooky for Halloween....including a look at 100 gruesome games to get everyone in the mood! They're not going to be in any particular order, so no crys of "But that should be further up the list!"... Anyway, the first 5 are up... :)

New review... Duke Nukem 3D. With lots of memories of Wireplay and the Build editor.

It's Crap Game Corner's demented cousin, Crap Movie Corner. And, I thought I'd start off wit a golden turkey that isn't from Bernard Matthews:

As one of my followers said, "Are you going to get all Hollywoof on us now?!"

No, no, not quite... far too much of a dork for that, but my site NintendoLegend.comdid just get a very spiffy new redesign that should stick around for the long-term.

1st in a new 4 part feature

to quote the foreword
"A few weeks ago I contacted a chap called Craig Davies with a view to composing a "making-of" of his game, Custerds Quest. His replies were so exhaustive and entertaining, offering a glimpse of the turbulent mid-late 80's period in the 8-bit games market, that I decided to write a fuller feature, taking in Craig's other efforts at getting his adventures released, as well as more biographical detail."

The second part of my look at the Original Star Wars Trilogy, and it's the turn of The Empire Strikes Back:
