  1. I think he got WHAMMIED!

  2. I'm pretty sure that "Ferrett Face" was ONLY used in the TV show. I also found out that MASH was originally a novel so take that into consideration.
  3. Dukes of Hazzard would indeed be under consideration. POTA and Alligator People are two separate games. The POTA proto was found first and assumed to be Alligator People because of a mis-labeling. Then the real AP showed up and the story became clear.
  4. The game was rleeased in 1982, using the same graphic as the first (1979) and second (1982) movies.
  5. I find this topic way too interesting. Right now, I'd say that we have 24 clear movie-based games and 7 question marks. Lord of the Rings Flash Gordon Buck Rogers Star Trek Mash Superman (game and movie were both released in 1978) Double Dragon (the biggest stretch) So is it a movie-based game ONLY if the movie was the first form of media to tell the story? In that case, we'd only add Mash. Or should it be on the list if a motion picture is the CURRENT OR MOST RECENT form of popular media at the time of the game's release. That would place only Superman and Flash Gordon on the list. Or does it count if a movie was EVER made? What say ye?
  6. 24) Porky's 25) Spacemaster X-7 26) Alligator People {prototype} Fox really churned them out, didn't they? I want some more opinions on Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers and Star Trek.
  7. Is anyone else an addict? I've spent more time playing Rome:TW than any other game in my long history of gaming. Am I the only one pissed off by the incompetent design of Medieveal Total War II?
  8. What version do you play? I tried the NES cart and hated it. I Googled "bard's tale weapon damage" and the first link seems to be what you're looking for, but it's for the Playstation version.
  9. If Bank Heist had been released under its original title (Bonnie and Clyde) it would certainly qualify. What about Flash Gordon and Buck Rogers? Can we say that they were based on movies (The Buck Rogers pilot was released in theatres before the TV series began) or just based on the old characters? Sega's Star Trek used the logo from the film, so does that qualify?
  10. I don't remember the last time that I didn't score 999,999 on Megamania. The big trick to maxing out points is right in the manual. Be sure to check out Steve Cartwright's tips if you haven't yet.
  11. That painting bears no resemblance to Letterman whatsoever (and Letterman was around LONG before 1982).
  12. Please paint the word "Challenger" on the side.
  13. Times have changed! The City Center is just an empty shell waiting to be torn down and there are no more concerts at Polaris. Ironically there are more concerts downtown (at the Lifestyle pavillion) and tons of shopping at Polaris Where was the store you used to visit? I'm wondering if it was a Video Games Express. They used to have several locations years ago. I don't remember the exact location. I haven't been to that store since 1994! It definitely wasn't part of a chain. Now I remember that the store was on the NorthEAST side, just off I-270. They used to carry the stuff like NeoGeo that I never saw anywhere else.
  14. From your own source . . . "Judges use four factors in resolving fair use disputes, which are discussed in detail below. It's important to understand that these factors are only guidelines and the courts are free to adapt them to particular situations on a case-by-case basis. In other words, a judge has a great deal of freedom when making a fair use determination and the outcome in any given case can be hard to predict." The definitions of Fair Use are VERY FAR from being clear. But here's good stuff from Wikipedia . . . "United States law in effect since March 1, 1989 has made copyright the default for newly created works. For a recent work to be in the public domain the author must specifically opt-out of copyright. For works produced between January 1, 1923 and March 1, 1989, copyright notice is required; however, registration was not required and between January 1, 1978 and March 1, 1989 lack of notice is not necessarily determinative, if attempts were made immediately to correct the lack of notice. Any American works that did not have formal registration or notice fell into the Public Domain if registration was not made in a timely fashion." So there might be a loophole for 2600-era games! But it'll probably never go to court because both sides would spend more than they could gain.
  15. I went to Ohio State many years ago, haven't been back to Columbus since. The City Center had just opened and Polaris was just a concert venue. I used to frequent a store on the Northwest side of Columbus, it had yellow awnings and simply said Nintendo. It was the best video game store I ever knew.
