GuitarAnthony commented on Coleco Wants to Bring Back Their Version of Do...:

Little historical note that many may not know. Nintendo wanted to license the Colecovision for Japan and were actively seeking a deal with Coleco but Nintendo wanted systems at cost whereas Coleco offered 10% below retail so it never happened.



GuitarAnthony commented on Fire Pro Wrestling Creator Masato Masuda Passe...:

Such a crying shame. Loved the Fire Pro games from the SNES to the best of all - Six Man Scramble on the Sega Saturn to the GBA versions. In his honor, we shall not speak of the XBLA atrocity. He was due to be interviewed for the Wrestling With Pixels book (coverage of every wrestling game worldwide that ever came out) by Maffew of Botchamania fame soon as well. RIP Masuda-san.



GuitarAnthony commented on Microsoft's Phil Spencer Can't Say Enough Nice...:

They know it's not the same scene as it was 15-25 years ago where it paid off to explicitly insult your competition. It's all roses and marshmallows these days. Maybe it's because Sega doesn't make consoles anymore but they did the best ragging on competition of anyone. I remember the 2 page ad consoling Sony on their PS2 shipping woes in 2000 with a young boy sticking his tongue out and waving his hands about with thumbs in his ears.

'Course, Sony retaliated by showing Sonic looking dejected in a junkyard over Dreamcast sales but I digress...
