    You are gonna think I am a moron.

    You mean it's not the unpublished predecessor to Pong? :argh:

    JFK Reloaded

    Damn, I missed that tycoon game. Probably couldn't have beaten Mengles high score anyway :( I can barely play mob games. Hopefully it will be such a poor financial performer that economic Darwinism kills it off. Not likely, but at least it's not likely to get into the mainstream.

    JFK Reloaded

    Not high on my list...(actually, it didn't even make the list) I can think of better uses for $30.

    Surely they can't help out everyone

    Having played Starships Unlimited, I'm thinking Matrix would be wise to just steer clear of sci-fi games and stick with what they know best.

    PS2 or XBOX

    I've played shooters, fighting games, and combat sims on the XB... it just don't work for me... period... and if I'm not having fun, what's the point? Actually I have both the PC and PS2 versions of GTA:VC, I prefer the PS2... except when it comes to weapons management... there isn't a game pad...

    Which is a better Beer and Pretzels Game?

    SJ's Illuminati isn't bad either. As for Saturday night gaming... the girlfriends and wives of our group members would have an issue if we were out looking for other women. I'm fairly certain one guy would truly be rolling the dice with his life if he tried that... and I think anything...

    Name That Game

    RSR is short for 'Red Storm Rising'. It was a sub combat simulator for the C64 (and others I believe) in the late 80s early 90s. It was fairly good in its simplicity yet offered quite a bit of gameplay and loads (IMO) of re-playability. The premise behind it was that you as a US sub commander...

    Name That Game

    If only RSR looked that good... unless they did a remake (please, please, please...). Not the up and coming Dangerous Waters is it?

    A New Naval Sim

    PT 109 a long time ago in DOS-ville. Then there was ?HMS Pegasus? where you played various fast attack craft and hydrofoils.

    Matrix Says You Can't Sell Your Downloaded Games!

    The business model, while good for Matrix, in a word, sucks for the players. By paying the money for the game (not a subscription service that offers many games and you're just buying 'time' to play them) I 'own' it and can do whatever the hell I damn well please with it (within the law)...
