Thanks for writing this! This is a good reminder of what how people may be able to fix their mistakes, but it's too late for the majority to notice. So many people I knew bought PacMan and then never bought Ms PacMan. I don't think it was just cause I knew guys and Ms PacMan was female, either.

I also really liked PacMan Jr as it really diverged (IIRC) from the arcade game's map. But I don't think I ever checked this game out. So I'm interested, again.

I have a few games in your list of recently reviewed games I want to check out for the first time, actually. Too much else to do at the moment, though.

Ms. Pac-Man and Desert Falcon were the first games I ever owned. Before that, I had to play my brothers' systems (Atari 2600 and TI-99). It's a shame more people didn't give Ms. Pac-Man a chance, because it really blew its predecessor out of the water. Thanks for reading, Schultz!

Ooh, TI-99. Any chance of you reviewing a TI-99 game soon?

I remember being jealous of my friend's TI-99 just because it had MunchMan. Different friend from the Coleco friends.

I would, but I think I would have find an emulator. My brother's TI died ages ago. He has some great stuff on it: MuchMan, Munchmobile, Super Demon Attack, a D&D game, Hunt the Wumpus, Protector II (a Defender knock-off), a horse racing simulator... It's been ages since I've played any TI games, so I wouldn't be the best judge for a review.

Hm, yeah, I can see that, but sometimes I need that change of pace of a new system I haven't poked at for a while. But just so you know--a TI review from you will get at least one hit.

And it'll be hard for the rest of us to question your authority on the subject, anyway :)

Well, I found a TI-99 emulator. Now there's just the matter of finding ROMs. I can find some, but need to register to download them (I'm not fond of registering to emulation sites). If I can get this up and running, I may do some TI-99 reviews in the future.

EDIT:
Oh! I found an emulator, Classic99, which actually has games programmed into under license from Texas Instruments. Apparently TI has given their fullest blessing to this emulator. It even comes with Munch Man and Hunt the Wumpus. Sweet!
