The Video Game Gazette

Donkey Kong Senior In The Works!

With Ms. Pac-Man actually out-earning Pac-Man, the video game companies are convinced that if they have a hit, theyre going to clone it. Sequel games will be a big part of the menu this year and here is a sneak peak at what the arcade manufactuerers have up their sleeves__.

Star Trek: The Convention - Segas Star Trek was a big hit. In Star Trek: The Convention, the object is to buy as many buttons, T-shirts and souvenirs as possible during a three-day festival at the Hilton. Extra points are awarded for getting Leonard Nimoys autograph.

Robotot 2085 - Yes, the last human family had an illegitimate child living in Passaic, New Jersey. He returns to fight the Brains and defend humanity.

Donkey Kong Senior - Help Grandpa Kong discover which tree he left his false teeth in as he is chased by the dreaded Creeping Senilities.

Buck Rogers: Caverns of Zabars - Buck shops for pork butts in a famous New York delicatessen

Other biggies to watch for: Ms. Do, Mr. Do-do, Mr. Dont, Time Co-Pilot, Anglo-Zaxxon, Beneath the Valley of Pac-Man, Miss Pac-Man, Cousin Pac-Man and Tac-Scan Pac-Man

Copy Your Game Carts?

A company called Marjac Industries has developed a device that plugs into the Atari VCS and can copy the memory of one cartridge onto another cartridge. The "ROM Scanner" as it is called, will be offered to consumers for the supposed purpose of storing up to ten games on one cartridge and avoiding the trouble of constantly plugging and unplugging games. However, such a device would also tempt people to copy their games and sell them for profit. The record industry is being severely hurt by people taping albums instead of buying new ones, and the video game business may be in for the same. We will keep you informed on this matter.
