    I had, uh, a rather different take back in 2013:



    That said, I played it on TurboGrafx-16 later on and didn't like that version either, so it's possible that this is a solid port of a game I...

    Unfortunately, no -- I think there was supposed to be one, but it was cut for space reasons, so it just loops. I came so close as a kid, and finally clearing Chamber 9 as an adult felt awesome.

    Great post! I've had a few games elude me for decades and finally taking them down is so, so satisfying. Two that come to mind are black-box Tennis on the NES and Downland on the Tandy CoCo; I don't...

    ^And still my favorite game on the system! So happy to see this get 10/10 again, as I feel it deserves it -- and I'm not someone who gives that grade out lightly. A rare example of a game that's...

    ^Brilliant, Seingalt! So satisfying to see another PAL game fall. Each one brings us dramatically closer to achieving one of our goals. :)

    That page is a thing of beauty! I think I'd seen it before but forgotten about it.

    I endorse this quest! Do we have a cover image for the manual? Put differently, are we sure a manual exists? (I imagine one does exist, since this was a nicer-than-average production for a game with...

    Awesome, GelmiR! You did everything perfectly (in terms of image attachments). We're down to the last 20!!

    I've been thinking about that too! Of course it'd be wonderful to get it wrapped up inside a decade, and I still think all the lists except Sega CD could be achieved this year with enough will.

    I...

    That'd be great, Like G, if you're willing to take those on! I don't know anything about regional differences with Lethal Enforcers II and Shining Force CD. Ideally I'd want to know for sure that...

    This is it! I've been crazy busy and haven't had time to ask a moderator to change the year in the title, but this is still where all the action is happening. Dare we hope that you have a fresh win...

    Ah, my bad on that. I was working in relative haste and let Gmail autocomplete your address. In fact I've emailed you at the current one more recently! :daze: In any event, email sent to the correct...

    Sent on Sunday morning to ken@sega-16.com. Is that still a viable address?

    I think "silly" might be the wrong word, but when I first saw the game I had the same feeling I get when I look at a flight sim on Atari 7800 -- "this is going to be a hassle", I suppose. But once I...

    I wasn't able to get the dashboard to work, but I've sent it in to you via email! Very glad to hear that upgrades are in the works, I hope everything goes well.

    I thought Pilotwings looked silly until I sat down and played it properly. Then I was totally hooked! Really fun game that must have felt so ahead of its time (I didn't play it for more than a few...

    There are plenty of games I still enjoy on the Game Boy. The restricted, limited nature of them is exactly what I like: most of the time, I don't want something involved, epic, or packed with options...

    You know what game I liked a lot more than its reputation would suggest? Energy. Granted, I played with a patch that speeds up the screen transitions and adds some other quality-of-life improvements,...

    I've got a feature I want to submit, but when I try to do anything with the WordPress dashboard, the interface is unusable (no way to submit, text is all white) and it says "There has been a critical...

    Sure, the best thing would be to find someone who played it. I think, though, we have to differentiate carefully between these things:

    ^To your point, I still bought blank cassettes through the 1990s, until the advent of cheap CDRs. I used them to make mixtapes, record albums from my friends or the library, and tape live...

    I think the first time I heard a CD in person was probably 1989. My best friend started buying CDs regularly in 1990, and I think I got a player for Christmas in 1991. I'd been a tape buyer from...
