Re: What is your favourite 'worst' PSX game?

I remember the PlayStation version of Chef's Luv Shack getting a complete baw-bootin' from the critics at the time. Fair enough, it was a shameless cash-in that probably took the studio's work experience student a lunchtime to develop, but it's still one that my mates and I enjoy playing. Lots of g...

I got it with my PS1 back in the day and although it is the most sluggish beat em up in the history of the world, I got hours out of it.
I'm into that. Though the 'commentator' would give Mr Garrison a run for his money. V. funny. Good call boy!

Re: What is your favourite 'worst' PSX game?

I'd rather remember the good games TBH. Let's start a Remember The Crap Games on 2600 thread instead shall we? I see what you mean, the actual idea was though - to hear and talk about games that were supposed to be trashy but ended up being fun. Not just terrible ones. The best part of RG magazine ...

It should have been really, too much beer, wasn't thinking straight. By the way - bint? I thought that used to be slang for a peculiar lady. Has it evolved since?

What is your favourite 'worst' PSX game?

Some fairly horrific titles came out on the old PS, but I wonder do any of you guys have any recollections of a game or 'games', that stood out as being particularly nasty? I'm not just talking dull as ditchwater gameplay stuff here - Hugo etc. What about mind baffingly bizarre. In that you cannae u...

Please help identify breakout clone! ST/Amiga

Hi everyone, I'd love to know the title of this - I played it on my Atari ST in 87/88? Or thereabouts. What I do remember - a plain black background (starfield effect perhaps), Fairly nondescript graphics though adequate. And the main thing - sampled sound effects! Each brick colour had it's own sam...

Re: British Gas

These scum are indicitave of how revolutions have taken place. The kind of social revolution which ends up with many pigs strung off a telegraph pole. I truly hope many folk look at their accounts and desert these thieving shithounds.

Poor Felix, he's actually only in that first clip - the second is another chap. Look out for his cameo in 15 storeys high.

SAPPHIRE & STEEL!!!! Get amongst it boys and girls. It's worth a view again. I seem to recall I wasnae allowed watch it as a kid, but it's probably down to my parents thinking it was censored and they didn't want to look at it.
