Classic commercials  :113: Too bad Phil Hartman isn't with us anymore, loved him on the TV show News Radio.

I played The Apprentice a couple of months ago. It is a good game, but bloody hell is it hard. I couldn't finish it.

My cousin actually used to have a CD-i a really, really long time ago, so long ago I don't even know how I still remember he had one. I know he had Battleship, which is... well, Battleship. He had this one other game, though...

Mystic Midway: Rest in Pieces (CD-i Gameplay)

Mystic Midway: Rest In Pieces. The best "be constantly made to feel inadequate by a very fat man/shooting gallery" simulator you'll find for the CD-i OR MS-DOS! ...Seriously, though, it's a pretty OK game, although good luck getting past Level 3. It's not very deep, though, and it feels more like a minigame you'd play to win extra lives in a bigger, better game.

It's a shame they tried to market the CD-i so hard as a game console. They could have beaten the DVD player to the punch, if they were smart, but...

I am not a Mario fan but I am sure this would have gone down well had it been finished.

Oh, I'm sure it would have!

I like the GameSack guys in that they give consoles a fair shake for the most part (I wish they had put more into the Jag review, but that's neither here nor there).  I think this is the best CD-I video that I've seen.

I'm not very familiar with this particular console, so the video was pretty informative for me.  They usually do a good job in their videos.  :)

Yeah sadly the cost was it's downfall in the end. I have a vast collection that I bagged many moons ago that I am thinking about moving on now.
