"But the manual said to put the tape in before turning the ADAM on...."

In Topic: How could they mess up Doom for the 32X?

Wed Jul 18, 2018 9:35 AM


I tend to agree, the pc version's music is worse with its tin can mod tracker crap and keep in mind you couldnt buy a computer at the same price that ran doom better than a console at the time ... I had a decked out 386DX-40 when it was a big deal and the screen size is smaller and the FPS lower than even the 16 bit consoles 



Wow, you really had a bad PC....


Doom ran best on 486 systems at least.  And I agree that the music didn't sound so hot on Sound Blaster 16 cards, but later waveform cards made it much better.


Console wise, I say Jag Doom was the best of the cart based versions in spite of lack of music.  But the PSX version blows all of them away by remaking the game into a horror based shooter.

In Topic: Why XEGS when the 7800 already existed?

Wed Jul 18, 2018 9:25 AM

The way it was marketed was this...


2600 for the low end, mostly to play carts sold at yard sales


7800 for the mid range to compete against the NES


And XEGS as the high end system that can also be used as a home computer.



Of course it didn't work against Nintendo's single game console but they tried at least...

In Topic: "GameStop Enters Sellout Talks"

Now GameStop is really getting desperate, cause now they're selling comic books!




Now those obnoxious clearks will become Comic Book Guys™....



In Topic: How much do you like the Shenmue series?

Mon Jul 16, 2018 8:41 AM

I played Shenmue on my DC and though it was fun for a while exploring a virtual town it wasn't perfect.


But I can forgive the quirks cause it really was early days of gaming and this was like a prototype of open world games where now you can do way more exciting stuff like in the GTA series.  That's why Sega came up with the Yakuza series I suppose.


I'll get the remakes and hopefully I'll have time to finish them to play the 3rd episode when it comes out...just to see how the whole thing will end after all these years.  (Now how about doing the same for Mega Man Legends...)
