Nobody has mentioned the music in the game, which was the most jarring and irritating part of it for me, or maybe at least the last straw. It was probably the garage bands of folks they knew. This also happened to me with Omikron on Dreamcast. And I don't usually mind mediocre music in games. I mus...

Re: Brain Dead 13

I consider FMV games like this something of a tragedy. When you say "FMV games" this can mean anything with games that benefit from being interactive like Phantasmagoria or D to games that really have no business being games in the first place...I had some fun with Dragon's Lair and Triad Stone/Str...

Ninja Gaiden for Atari Lynx. A port of the original arcade game. It's a poor Final Fight clone that's just not exciting to play. I was disappointed playing it in the arcade and I was disappointed playing it on my Lynx. It's not worth anyone's time, especially when the late games in the series are s...

Re: 3DO dreams

Last night I dreamt I was shopping in some store all their merchandise inside individual glass display cases, and they had a rare signed promo copy of Cyberdillo for $60.

The game has a really floaty feel to it and it can be tricky to get out of crashes or avoiding other cars. I personally really like the game though, and the controls and framerate are things I can look past in it. It seems to be one of those love/hate games for sure. If you can get it at a decent pr...

I ended up finding a Lynx with 7 games at the game store in town today and I gotta say, I'm pretty impressed with the thing. My favorite of the group so far is A.P.B. It's a neat little overhead driving game that feels like a combination of Rally X and Spy Hunter, without the guns. Give it a shot!

Huh. I must be the only person who likes this game, eh? I dunno, I actually like how simple it is. Turn, shoot, turn, shoot, etc. I really liked that Battlezone remake that came out on XBLA a few years ago too and no one agrees with me on that one either.
