    In particular, Intellivision, Commodore 64, and Sega Saturn. Great consoles that never fully got their due, until now...!!!
  • Currently Playing
    Whatever I can get my hands on that is retro, especially for systems such as Mattel Electronics' Intellivision and Sega Saturn!

    I bought myself a modded Xbox with a ton of games on it. Now if I could only somehow burn a homebrew Dreamcast game...

    So many games, so little time. But the classics will never go out of style !!!

  1. Mine was back in 1987. I had just received both "The Train" and "Power at Sea," both for Commodore 64. Not only were the graphics better than most games of the genre. But, it was the first time I had played games at this point, where the game play was so immersive. I could not get over the immersive game play and how it felt so life-like. Needless to say, both games kept me glued to the screen, until I eventually beat both games, some time later. Great games then, and I still look fondly at those two games today. In fact, I still play them both, from time to time... In fact, it's games like these, which made me a huge fan of Accolade, back in the day.
  2. I actually have the magazine, where that Dracula game screenshot was printed. According to the article, that was a proposed version of "Dracula" all right. But, I believe that it was a screenshot for the proposed ColecoVision version, and not the Intellivision game, which Imagic did release. To my knowledge, the ColecoVision version of this game never made it past the concept phase.
  3. Wasn't there an add-on which was supposed to be released, to play a more arcade perfect version of this game at some point?
  4. Both were known to not be very user-friendly. But, I never liked the nub of the joystick of the ColecoVision, and I always preferred the keypad to be over the controller, so that the buttons and overlays could be utilized better. ~ Ash
  5. I always saw the Power Stone series as a unique type of game. Is it a fighter? Is it a beat-em up? Is it a platformer? But, if you really want to get into unique, then I'd say Typing of the Dead! That one is crazy fun, and definitely has more than one genre under it's belt, including educational...lol.
  6. My Game Room [and collection]. And this was taken 10 years ago. It has grown exponentially since...
  7. I was always partial to "Card Sharks" myself...
  8. My Mom watches "Highway to Heaven" a lot, and there is an episode where the stars of the show are in an arcade, and you can clearly hear the music from the Atari 260 version of Pac-Man playing in the background.
