I've been playing a ton of Vectrex games as I'm writing reviews for them.  Some of the games I played today:
- Spike
- Spike Hoppin'
- Spike's Water Balloons
- Space Wars
- Star Trek

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

Just finished Ultima VII: The Black Gate.

I was quite determined to finish it to see what's so great about it. There are some good things, but also quite a lot of bad - I didn't like the inventory, the jerky movement, constantly having to feed everyone, people not having names above their head other than "shopkeeper" or something and constantly moving around so you can't click on them (if you can find them at all), the map not being annotated.......

It's not a bad game, but with so many things that could have been improved I'm not sure why it's so highly rated.

Been playing Metal Slug 5 on the Neo Geo MVS... it's usually bashed as the worst Metal Slug, but it's still a really fun game. I'd rather play a 'bad' Metal Slug than the best Call of Duty. :D

Had some 4 player matches on Power Stone 2 on the DC last night. First time I've played it. It was ace.

Also played some Mario Kart & Wipeout on the N64 and Elite on the Acorn Electron.
