True Fantasy Live on Xbox looked awesome, still does even by this generations standards. Shame we wil never see it, consoles need more mmorpgs.

Wasn't there a problem with Halo 3 in a similar vain? Are games pushing the hardware that far? Or is it merely that more people are using their consoles because they have something to play on it, making the failure rates more apparent?

Man this made me laugh today

I know that I shouldnt but I cant stop laughing at this, really tickled me. Poor kid must have been terrified, all ok now though, so it's kinda ok to laugh. It is his mothers total oblivion to the whole situation that got me. http://video.msn.com/?mkt=en-gb&vid=1a11b851-8adf-4a95-9e31-98d5e0f7f17b&p...

I dare say RG were focussing on literal genre titles rather than the specialist sub genre titles given to different areas of games by hardcore elements. Titles that are relevant to the many rather than the few. The games that you are referring to are widely regarded as scrolling beat em ups, and as ...

Those You Tube videos are awesome, refreshing to see people playing games at that sort of level, I figured in this world of free plays gamers wouldnt be as adept as they used to be, these guys would have dominated t...

The main reason for me why I still play the conversions instead of the arcade origianal for some games is because the difficulty settings are much better. Take for example APB, I always liked that game for the Amiga. The first time I tried the arcade version was on Mame and although technically bet...
