    They look higher res than the original games, but I guess this is just down to better design decisions, such as using colours that blend well together to make edges look less blocky. And they seem to...

    Heh, maybe the Intellivision should be upgraded to "third gen"

    Was the Intellivision really poorly utilised during its lifespan or are these new games using a lot of advanced tricks? (or is it a...

    The way the "generations" are set-up on Wikipedia and such is a fairly recent thing, back in the day all the contemporary magazines called the Colecovision and the Atari 5200 the "Third Gen"...

    Essex in England.

    Have you joined a lot of the "free stuff" Facebook groups in your local area? VHS appear from time to time, usually they're ignored.

    It really was just procrastination I think tbh :D

    I watched Sam Peckinpah's The Getaway. I've been trying to get rid of my VHS collection (yeah I should've done it 20 years ago but oh well) and some of these films I haven't seen in so long I don't...

    6 is too low I think, for a game from 1988 this is more like an 8/10, 7/10 at the absolute lowest.

    Good graphics and music, nice game play aspects like the way you pick up moves and choose your...

    To be fair, I think if we limited this to the 48k models of Spectrum then it would be accurate to say it dominated, not to the level of 94% obviously, but perhaps as much as 80%+ of the market during...

    I've been playing a lot of Spectrum Castlevania recently and that has quite nice music.

    Nothing astonishing or anything, I just like the way the percussion sounds.

    I wouldn't say miles ahead of the N64, but certainly ahead, and Sega CD adds a bunch more to reach respectable-ish levels.

    Stock Mega Drive has fewer than ten RPGs worth playing truth be told, N64...

    Metroidvania isn't a genre, its a sub-genre of action-adventure games, there are loads of action-adventure games in Mega Drive.

    Mega Drive is most lacking in RPGs and puzzle games

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but the CPC has some kind of coarse hardware scrolling that scrolls so fast that its ordinarily pretty much useless right? from what I gather the homebrewers slow it down by...

    Actually, about the Amstrad, just going back in time and forcing Alan Sugar to release only 128k models would probably fix all the problems.

    Or maybe even just discontinue the 464 in 1986 and...

    I occasionally watch some of this guy's videos but am not super into them tbh.

    Yeah, I just read through a C64 vs Atari thread and they seem to think that C64 would've had better colour in most games regardless.

    I'll go back to keeping Amstrad as being third place I think.

    Its unfortunate the Amstrad CPC existed really :D, Atari XL, MSX, or even the Electron would've been better for 3rd place in the UK IMO.

    Wow, this is crazy, are there any examples of this kind of beeper usage + AY simultaneous to make music for 128k?

    I guess there wouldn't be enough cpu power spare to do both at once?

    I'll always have fond memories of the N64 game as that was really my era.

    Like I said before though, the game doesn't look anything amazingly impressive (mainly it looks low Poly for a Dreamcast game).
