  1. The Intellivision (that's how it's spelled, BTW)...

    The Intellivision (that's how it's spelled, BTW) has an empirically better sound chip than the ColecoVision for a very simple reason: it has actual bass frequencies and the CV doesn't (without arcane...

    I think that analysis is too simplistic, especially Intellivision vs. ColecoVision, since the CV is clearly inferior to the Intellivision in several aspects (sound chip, no hardware scrolling, no...

    Wrote a review for LHX Attack Chopper -- just need to fire up the game a bit more to make sure I haven't forgotten anything. So hopefully that number will be 62 shortly. :)

    RISE FWOM YOUR GWAVE:

    I've got a review for LHX Attack Chopper written. I just need to go back to the game and play it a bit more to see if there's anything to add.

    I rather liked the first Smurfs game on Genesis, though the second one is a drag. The Master System games are better, quite good actually.

    Sadly I don't! I thought it would be the same (74.86.217.179), and a Google seems to suggest it was, but replacing the SegaAge URL with the IP address doesn't seem to work. No idea what to do there,...

    I would hope one of us could help drx out by starting a thread for this, no? If someone like drx is going to release prototypes, let's do what we can to facilitate that discussion. (With drx's...

    Good call! I found four other Genesis games that had been reviewed and removed those as well, leaving only 65 to go.

    Early 19th century, as I recall. I'd have to check for the exact year, but 1806 comes to mind for some reason. I don't think I have anything from the 18th century.

    I'm surprised that Todd's Adventures in Slime World didn't make it into the video. That has the harshest sound I've ever heard in a Genesis game, bar none.

    Also, the Tengen version of Marble...

    For my own reference, I reformatted the Genesis table from post #1 to get rid of games that have been reviewed already:

    online (yes/no)

    That game has a timer, doesn't it? Booting it at 50Hz and 60Hz would quickly reveal which one is in sync with a wall clock.

    Me? Hardly, I don't particularly give a shit about the whole thing. I've done a couple (very minor, very niche) translations, and if someone sold them as a repro, I'd be flattered, frankly. And I own...

    Fozzy, what would you consider "beating" this game? It's been hanging out for ages in this thread --

    I liked Metal Head too. The run button should have been the default, but otherwise it controlled well and had surprisingly decent graphics. Those voiced talking heads are pretty hilarious, though. :)

    The defense used by fan translations isn't so much that it's "just for fun", but that by only distributing patches, you're encoding the differences between the unaltered and fan-translated versions...
