Game room still disappoints me.
They should have canceled Game Room, not 1 v. 100.

We have Mr. Gatti's here in KY... Unfortunately it had nothing like Gyruss. :(
Mr. Gatti's IS a chain, now called "Gattis Pizza." It's also where I learned to play Mortal Kombat. Every friday night, baby!
Brad: Mr. Gatti's is a pizza chain based out of Austin, Texas. It was, and still is, awesome.
oh my god that hover force playthrough was SO boring.
Release Defender damn it.
Where's my Punisher 1992 Capcom cabinet?
Man, I really want to like game room but, damn, it's tough... They need more licenses! If they could get genesis games, It would be awesome.... 'tis simply a dream....
"Warp to UrAnus"
Well, at least there is one halfway good game. Although I would rather just have Galaga.
Argh, the sound effects on Quadrun...
OH GOD! my tinnitus started playing up at quadrun.
Jeff promised 30 reviews. So far, he's delivered 3-ish. WHAT UP?

Uh huh huh huh, they passed Uranus....
I really wish the Game Room games were cheaper. :/
That's right, Uranus is a chance stage.
Holy crap, so many quicklooks this week. I almost don't have time to watch all of them.
New Atari interface doesn't use the original typeface. Effing Arial. Lazy devs :(
There are probably 5 people that still buy games for that crap. Are you able to get more than 80 free Gamerscore by now ?^^
I love how every quick look, someone misses some totally obvious piece of visual information like the GIANT RED DOT FLASHING ON THE MAP.
Lincoln Force vs. Hover Force In this case, Hover Force is an evil team of robotic Lincolns built by the evil helicopters. With little propellers popping out of the stovepipe hats.
OMG Quadrun RUINS MY EARS!!!
what was with those sound effects on quadrun damn it that whistle made me bleed!
MR GEDDY'S! They had some of those in Kentucky, but they're starting to close down.
Gyruss is awesome, even today. It was among the first shooters to have music, and it was good music as well. Barnstorming was pretty fun, I used to trade games back then and I got to play it some, not great but original. Fishing Derby was a game you saw in the store and wondered who actually bought it. Hover Force is actually pretty good, especially when you compare it to the other games on that horrible Intellivision console. It also was among that last releases that system saw, which is why so few remember it, because by 1986 (when it came out) few people were still buying video games at all - let alone Intellivision games. I remember being in a Kay-Bee mid crash, with a bin of games for all the consoles marked for pennies on the dollar, Hover Force was in that pile. Quadrun is probably going to be fairly popular, since it was one of the Holy Grails of 2600 games for collectors. Mail order only and limited to 10,000 copies, it was a game few saw or even knew about. Even though later on Atari admitted it was published that way because it wasn't very good and it was cheaper to make it a limited run than a regular release.
" Uh huh huh huh, they passed Uranus.... "
At E3 you had all these dudes remaking GoldenEye and X-COM... Where's my Hover Force remake huh? Where can I go to have helicopter-on-helicopter violence with map screens and crosshairs and such? Untapped market I tell you. Game Room still looking fascinating, but nothing I'd ever spend time on or spend money for.
I miss a good-quality Mr. Gatti's :(
That last game's high pitched noise was really bothering me. I'm glad Brad didn't want another round of it.
that pizza place brad described sounds positivly epic
Hell yes Mr. Gatti's, I played the fuck out of some pac-man there back in the day. (Also in KY)
They need new hardware. SEGA's Model 1 or Model 2 would be awesome, but I doubt they will ever get that far. They are still stuck in 78-83 mostly
I haven't even started watching this yet, but FUCK YEAH GYRUSS. EDIT: After watching the first minute, I'm itching to play some Gyruss now. Instead, it's only 10:00am and I've got a whole day of work to look forward to... *sob*
You are....not good at the fishing game...at all....it was fucking painful to watch.
Gave up on Game Room as soon as I played it. Haven't looked back.
