Austin, you're right. At best they're, as you say, mildly entertaining. And for somebody to try and convince or to put forward an argument that they are "very good", well I'm sorry but that's bordering on crazy talk. I own the games and have really tried to get to like them. But it's no good. Very f...

Well lately I've been in a retro gaming type of mood and currently I'm enjoying a few games on my various Sega systems. Started off with a bit of 'Master of Darkness' for the SMS and now busy with Snatcher' for the Sega CD and also BlackThorne on the 32X. Have also been meaning to give 'Panzer Drago...

I think I'm going to give some time to the two Zelda games I own. I've had them for quite some time now but never got around to really playing them. I want to make up my own mind on whether they really deserve all the terrible rep they've received over the years. So I'm going in with an open mind. W...

@ Mcampellone, Yeah I'm also kinda glad I found this forum. Just that it looks like we may have caught it at an incredibly quiet period? I mean sure it's reasonable that you won't get many people following any type of news or goings-on for a system such as the CD-i. And sure maybe it was more active...

Thanks, Trev. :)

You previously mentioned Bas's blog.
I've been doing quite a bit of reading there recently, and yeah it is a great blog and huge c-r-e-d-i-t to Bas for keeping it active and alive! Seems to me he's pretty tireless with all the work he's doing there!

Re: Flashback + CD-i pad = ...

Such a great game, but man does the CD-i port pale when compared to others. I'm not even talking about the bars that border the sides of the screen (I found them easy to ignore before long) the lack of cd quality sound effects, or even the slowdown that oddly occurs, but its the control. Besides be...

Thanks for the welcome, Trev. :) I didn't notice any dedicated place on the forum (probably is, I just didn't see it) where we post pics of our CD-i stuff, so I just thought to put mine here. Yeah it's pretty humble with literally only a few games, but I guess we all have to start somewhere. http://...

Yeah most definitely that is a great game!
I have the Sega CD port of the game. I don't know how favorably it compares to the other versions out there but I loved it.

Hi all,

I joined up last month already but I just thought to say hi to everyone here.
I'm from South Africa and I've had a CD-i system for about two years now.
So far I've only got a few games but looking forward to adding to my CD-i collecton, and to visiting the forums here more often. :)
