I bought this a few months ago for two bucks at a local flea market but never installed it. So I did. I’m not quite sure why so many reviewers slammed it… so far it seems fine. Then again, I don’t have much experience with this type of game, so.

I’m not very keen on how some conversations take place, but the story isn’t even remotely what I expected.

Let’s see where this goes.

I wasted a buck on this – Racing Triple Pack

Posted by Kit Silva on March 10, 2009

Imagine buying three crappy Windows 95 games, two of which are actual real games and the last one is basically a glorified browser game, and you’ll get this:

(Image snagged from eBay)

In a nutshell:
Autobahn Racing looks OK, the graphics are decent. But the controls… you accelerate by pressing up, brake by pressing down, and you can’t even turn properly when you’re going fast. So you end up crashing against the rails. Oh and the game tracks the damage you take, and once you get to 0% (which can take less than a second – those cars are made out of PAPER), the level ends. And if you don’t press F1 fast enough you get booted back to the main menu.

Power Surge… well, the game froze for a couple of minutes and took up 100% of the CPU before I managed to get the race to start… and then I was stuck on the starting line. Whuh. Oh yeah, then the game crashed.

Speed Demons Jet Ski… I have no idea what the hell am I supposed to do in it. Even the back of the jewel case doesn’t show a gameplay screenshot. It’s just a menu.

Budget gaming at its finest. :|

Takin’ a look at: Parasite Eve (Part 1)

Posted by Kit Silva on March 8, 2009

I got several classic PS1 games a few weeks ago. One of them was Parasite Eve. I figured I’d try the game out and see why it was so popular back in the day.

And I’m quite impressed. Read the rest of this entry »

The perils of being a MobyGames approver…

Do me a favor: If you’re going to contribute trivia to the site, PLEASE state your sources, and please don’t copy from Wikipedia.

Even if you say you didn’t copy it from Wikipedia, sites that steal content from there like to keep older copies of the pages instead of keeping them up to date. 99% of the time, we’ll know.
