Classic Game Room season 1 - 8/12/2000. Game Room does "Virtual On" this week, a game where the controls are most certainly "On Crack". This game is a prime example of what happens when game designers run out of good ideas for video games. They follow the old cliche of gigantic robots beating the crap out of each other on a moon base for no apparent reason. Dave liked the arcade version of this game, but in translating it to the Dreamcast the developers went out of their way to make the controls the most cryptic and unresponsive controls ever. In fact, Virtual On is so difficult to control, the game is Virtual Unplayable. Game Room reviewed Atari, NES, Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Dreamcast and Playstation... too bad they didn't get to Xbox 360, PS3, PS2 or Wii.

Sears was the place for electronics in the late '70s (well, Sears and Radio Shack) and they worked with Atari to launch their own classy game system, the Sears Video Arcade! Enjoy Tele-Games brand games like Tanks-Plus which is basically Combat except it has the Sears brand on it!! The Sears Video Arcade has that familiar Atari 6-switch styling but with Tele-Games branding on top, Video Arcade branding on the front, a rich walnet-style wood grain finish and silver trim. Serious collectors should enjoy having this amazing piece of video game history in their collection, and it plays great games!!
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR hats & mugs! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room reviews FAR CRY 3: BLOOD DRAGON for Xbox 360, also available for PlayStation 3 PS3 and PC! All hail the '80s action movies like Predator, The Terminator, Robocop, Tron, Rambo, Die Hard and The Karate Kids because it's Hot Shots Part Deux the video game, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon! This parody of the post-nuclear war '80s vision of the future is a standalone downloadable game that plays like a smaller, sillier Far Cry 3. Basically, the designers used the same assets and made everything look like Tron. Enjoy an amazing musical score reminiscent of Aliens, The Terminator and Predator as well as Michael Biehn's hilarious acting, Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is rad!
