I had this one as a kid and I could just never quite get into it. I'll give it a shot again if I ever see a copy for cheap I guess but I dunno. It seemed like it could've been something better than it turned out.

I have a bad idea...

So I was thinking today, (A dangerous pastime, I know) and I'm not sure if it's a legit thing or not. I'm a pretty big nerd as it is and a few years ago, I got the Atari logo tattooed above my left wrist. It's a decent size and really easy to notice if I'm not wearing long sleeves, so there's no hid...

Playing Games Wrong

Okay, so I know I can't be the only person who does this. Often times, I play games completely differently than the developers intended. This is my favorite example. When I play Theme Park, I have to resist the temptation to simply take out a massive loan and pave the entire park, save for two outho...

5. That is a problem, for games like "D" you don't reset you open the lid (I hope that's what you meant) while the game stays in RAM waiting to read the second disc. I guess it's not a huge deal as I'll still have three other consoles that will have CD drives in them. I would imagine D would work s...

Review - Escape From Monster Manor

My first official review! Don't be too cruel! So I just got this game in the mail yesterday and so far, I really really really like it. It's simple, sure, but it seems more like Alone in the Dark than Doom to me. You have twenty shots and you better make them count, as I've found out in that STUPID ...

It may be the biggest hole in 3DO's library. I know I sure wish there was a good shump ... heck I'd settle for an average one.
I'll just settle for the lobster. At least it's a touch of weird.

What about the lobster game on Fun N Games? I loved that one as a kid. I also haven't played it since I was a kid so maybe it hasn't aged well but my nostalgia wins over logic!

The core of the game is roughly the same as far as I can tell. It basically got the "CD treatment," much like many games ported to the Sega CD did. The core of the game is roughly the same, yeah, but the game feels so vastly different from the original version. It honestly makes a BIG difference. O...

Nuts! Guess I'll keep going at it and see what happens. It's a pretty neat game, I gotta say.
