My little brother has an N64. Pretty good console... Of course, when I was a kid, the Atari 2600 was the biggest thing around. Anybody rember Defender and Berzerk?

Anyway, crappy player that I am, I still managed to get to the last battle in Zelda 64, but I never did beat it.

I have a SNES and an N64.  I really like my N64 but it's really starting to suck.  Everybody is saying that.  Rare is the best developer.  I will definitely reserve a GAMECUBE the first day it is possible.  I'm trying to find a PS2.  I don't know where!!! I already have Timesplitters and SSX for PS2.  What games do you have, Angel?

I'd love a PS2... mostly for its DVD-playing capabilities.

I heard last week that the RGB-output for DVD-movies has been disabled in the PS2 euro-version (I don't know about the US-version). It kinda cripples the whole concept of DVD-playback in PS2 (I've heard that the composite output is of average quality at best). So if DVD-playback is a big reason for buying PS2, I'd recommend a real DVD-player and some other console (like Dreamcast), because you can get them both for a price of PS2 (at least in Europe).
PS2 isn't a really good value for money in that matter (until the price drops dramatically).

Oh yeah, the 2600 was so much better than the Magnavox pong ripoff that used to be the top-of-the-line game (it had 4 pong-like games, and you could buy cartridges to play even more pong-like games!).

But it still wasn't that great; the best games were always on computers--Apple ][, C=64, etc.

Then again, the 2600 had all the arcade ports, like Berzerk ("intruder alert! intruder alert!").

OK, I guess it was lucky for me that I had a rich friend who had an Apple, a Commodore, and an Atari 800 (which played 2600 games). Otherwise I would have been stuck playing Hammurabi on my TRS-80 and "tennis" on my Magnavox....

So, any plans for a TRS-80 version of the Futurama game? Mine's upgraded to 16k and the level-2 ROMs!

So many memories... I had a C64 too (a C128, actually, but it could function like a C64) with tons of games. Lots of fun...

Say What? I've never been able to get my 800 to play 2600 games. In fact, I don't think the cartridge would even fit the machine!

Speaking of the ol' Atari, check out this url. http://www.geocities.com/funmazer/
This is absolutely the coolest thing I have ever seen while sober.

Neat. I've got a buddy who used to use his TRS-80 for Usenet. He'd had to make some really amazing modifications, but it still used the computer's original mainboard and CPU.

Yep, same here. As long as you don't check how good those games actually were  big grin

One tip though. Check www.c64audio.com  for a real retro-trip. And order those "back in time" -cd's, they kick ass (especially BIT 2).

Bought a box with 3 c64s, 1 vic20, 3 tapedecks, a 1541 and some vico joysticks at a fleamarket for 100skr (about $10) last week. Whee!
Uh, back on topic, that Futurama-game is gonna suck.

i'm bringin back some older topics. this one got a little off topic, but i'll try to get it back.

I think that a great futurama videogame would be and action/adventure game.  probably 3rd person view.  It would be a mix between mario64 / zelda64 / A lot of jet force gemeni (N64) / and a little crash bandicoot.  god, i hope the upcoming futurama title won't be another doomed cart racer.  there are too many of those to list. 

what would you ppl like to see included in the upcoming game?

I think there is a link to some news stories about the upcoming game at bart182's futurama merchandise page, but i'm too lazy to check right now.

Yeah but at least it's cool off-topicness. Video games rock...I'd go start a video game thread in the off-topic section now but I'm way too lazy.

I agree a lot. I don't want to have another generic fighter/racer type game with Futurama character skins. The show deserves a real game.

Jet Force Gemini might be a cool game to model it from...going from planet to planet, killing things in humorously violent ways. Maybe have a more interactive storyline, and a better emphasis on humor, and less emphasis on collecting those damn tribals. It could work.

Who's developing it? The same people who did the Simpsons game? I haven't played that, or even read any reviews of it...is it any good?

from my site http://slurmman.tripod.com/videogame.shtml  ...

From a chat Gamespot.com had with Peter Zetterberg from UDS, the developers making the Futurama video game.

GameSpot: UDS just announced that it has secured the Futurama license and that it will publish the title in Europe. How did the decision come together to move into publishing?

Peter Zetterberg: We own the sales rights for Europe, and in the near future we will examine the possibilities to either publish the game ourselves or copublish it with an already established partner on the European market.


GameSpot: How did the deal for the Futurama rights come together?

Peter Zetterberg: When we watched the first episodes of the series, the first thing that hit us was that the Futurama universe and the characters within it lend themselves perfectly to a computer game. We approached Fox Interactive, and they arranged a meeting with Matt Groening [the creator of the TV series Futurama). We pitched an idea for him and people from Fox in June this year in Los Angeles. The game idea was approved, and after a couple of months of contractual negotiations, we acquired the license. It is crucial for us that Matt Groening is enthusiastic about our concept, which he is very much so. He will be an important person during the entire production, and we are delighted to be working with him and his very talented team in Los Angeles.

GS: Can you already tell us something about the games? Style, genre, platforms?

PZ: Futurama the game is an adventure game that is played in a real-time 3D environment. Expect to meet and interact with most of the characters from the TV series. You will also need to travel to a large number of planets to solve puzzles. The storyline is still confidential, but what we can say is that it is about shampoo. The platforms we have chosen are currently confidential.


i have a lot more info at http://slurmman.tripod.com/videogame.shtml  .
just go there and quote or something.

Btw, JFG was a great game!  I would love a futurama game like that.  I would also like a futurama game like mario kart.

I don't know, there have been way too many kart racing games, and in my mind none of them are even close to Mario Kart's fun-ness.

Thanks for posting the above info though...I'm glad they're going for an adventure game. I'm looking forward to this...the fact that they approached Fox/Groening with the idea shows that they are fans of the show, rather than a bunch of uninspired programmers who got hired by Fox, even though they don't know anything about making a good liscense game.

Of course, the fact that they are fans doesn't automatically mean they will make a fun, funny game, but it's a good sign.

i remember pitt, i remember there was a weird problem with the post counter or something like that.

Anyway, i LOVED jet force gemeni.  yes the tribals were annoying, but besides that, it was SO fun.  Why can't Rare make a sequel???  I was just realizing how fun it would be if there was a futurama game like that.  they could just use the same engine.  there wouldn't be a few main kinds of enemies like in JFG, but a bunch of new ones for each planet.  The environments could be really interactive with a lot of funny things that could happen.
