@TorErik I own a 3DS and use it a lot, I will admit 3D is kinda gimmicky but, looking past that part it is actually a solid hand held system with improved capabilities from the older DS models. The Victormaxx and Virtual Boy however, completely sucked.

This place is perfect for a nice creepy scene. That last part actually made me jump.

This thing is the epitome of why that 90's virtual reality fad was an Mega-Ultimate Super-Giga-FAIL. While it was during my childhood, even I was too smart to even waste my time or my folks money asking for it. I'd rather have gotten more NES/SNES games than waste time and money to hook this PoS up. My early 90's T.V. serves me well even to this day, why would anyone want to strap this virtual tech turd to their head is beyond me. Nice to see something while the AVGN movie is still in progress.
Loved it man, not only did it have me laughing but it is always cool to see a little piece of the past.

I was never against any game company, but I certainly had and still have more brand loyalty for Nintendo(if only because I've never had a Nintendo product go out on me, my NES model-001 is 25 years old and still going strong). Sega had some awesome games but they screwed up in making these unsightly add ons to the console rather than following Nintendo's example of improving game capabilities with extra chips in the cartridges or doing what James suggested in releasing the 32x and Sega CD as stand alone consoles. I also believe that a little more work in the R&D and Marketing departments of SEGA back then could not have hurt them. It was still an exciting time to be a gamer with all the new technologies that were coming out in the 90's and Sega played it's part in that.

Wow, I forgot just how quick he got sick of this piece of shit! Not that I can't see why.I only got maybe a few feet further than he did before I shut it off(that was after numerous tries!!!). Thankfully I don't own this miserable pile of rancid ass garbage and I'm pretty sure my pal from back in the day has long since gotten rid of the copy I played. I know it didn't take him long to regret buying it.
As for the numerous ports of Dragon's Lair, there are only a few which really recreate the arcade original well and of course the NES as much as I love it, was not capable of it. So they made a game to piss us off instead.

There are TV shows and movies that are campy, cheesy, and sometimes down right awful with intent. A couple of examples being Army of Darkness(love it, but it's definitely cheesy ) same with the original Batman TV series. This movie however, goes beyond campy and silly.The Directors, producers, actors, writers, etc. have taken more drugs than Chester A. Bum, Tommy Chong, Jerry Garcia, Jim Morrison and Dr.Timothy Leary combined.
BTW Devil rising, here's my take on it. You can like a movie that is a bad movie. Just because you like it does not mean the talent, effort, and quality are there. Just the same you can hate a good movie just because it doesn't catch your attention. I believe in this sense "Good" and "Bad" are referring to the actual talent of the actors, quality of filming and camera work, and the all important attention to editing.
That being said, as the old saying goes"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"

I think it is truly awesome that he has a since of humor about it, as he said " I can't live it down, so I might as well live it up!" I also have to appreciate his comment about bringing the industry to it's knees with 8kb of code. Because that is what it boils down to, 8kb of data, written in a generations old assembly language, was SO notoriously influential in the the most harmful of ways to the gaming industry, and yet 3 decades later,in this age of far superior hardware,software, and programming techniques, E.T. still is remembered in infamy.

I gotta use that line one day lol " I beat Contra before before breakfast!"
Thanks James!!, for yet again taking us all back to the past! Contra is just one of those games that stays with you even 20 years later. So much so I even had to order a working copy from E-bay after you reminded me of those old times! (My original one got used so much it doesn't work anymore, but my original NES does!)
