Re: Which Amiga shareware games did you enjoy playing?

My favourites aren't really shareware as such, but were all freebies on magazine cover disks That Zombi point and click (still got it!). Oozed atmosphere and quite a good adaptation of Dawn of the Dead. Also can't remember the name of it but there was some cover disk game where you played as a bounc...

Re: Tropcio??

I love these games :) Really got into the first two, enjoyed the third one but something seemed to be missing for me. Haven't gotten the fourth one yet, waiting for an online sale then will pick it up with the expansion for sure!

Retro Gaming Art Collecting

Howdy all, I'm thinking it's time to start adding some good framed prints/art to the gaming room, does anybody have any good ideas of where to get either concept art or limited signed prints in the UK? There were some Street Fighter ones up on eBay recently which I'm kicking myself for not bidding o...

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Glad to say mine arrived today, got with it Wipeout and Lumines and also picked up Super Stardust. Absolutely astonishing machine, and I think the naysayers will end up eating their hats on this one. The dashboard interface is sleek and responsive, with some great ideas in there (peel back to close ...

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Re: Tomba! (TOMBI!)

This is one of the few rares that I have that was actually purchased back in the day (PAL version) and not sold off when I left home. Great game :)

Re: Wastelands to get a reboot

This is one of my all-time favourite RPGs, very excited to see a reboot but kind of hope they don't try and clone Fallout 3 (even though the Fallout series came from Wasteland in the first place!).

Re: Playstation Vita games discussion thread

Any thoughts on the durability of the touch screen at this early stage? Is it going to be sturdy enough (like a Samsung Galaxy S2) or is a screen protector in order?

Picking up Wipeout and Lumines for launch (got Lumines for £15 with the Amazon bundle), then going to hang out and hope that Silent Hill is a good Hunter clone!

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Been lurking this forum for a long time, coming out of hiding since I just bought a Core Grafx (modded to take both US and JPN games) AND preordered a PS Vita on the same day! Was so tempted to pick up the Turbo Duo RX on eBay at the moment (£275 with a bunch of games), but figured for that amount I...

Re: Anybody else preordered the new Playstation Vita yet?

Wasn't going to jump on board, but have taken the plunge for a launch day purchase! Got the Amazon bundle coming on Thursday, with Wipeout and Lumines to tide me over for a bit.
