Re: Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe Infinity - Out November 16th

Out today, and getting some very good reviews. Having listened to it for a while, it's not up there with the original or the first two Oxygene albums, or the still amazing Zoolook, but imo it's his best solo work for 20 years. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOdQSZPj1kk&t=57s&ab_channel=GeorgiRusev ...

Re: Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe Infinity - Out November 16th

I like WfC but there again I like Brian Eno's work, and this is similar to Eno's best. I wasn't impressed with Oxygene 3. Jarre said he did it because it was the 40th anniversary of the original and he wanted to see if he could complete it in 6 weeks like he did the original, and to me it sounds rus...

Re: Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe Infinity - Out November 16th

Quite a few people did. It went down well in the nightclub scene. But JMJ himself says he wishes he hadn't done it, and it doesn't even appear in his discography on his official website. Apart from "Vintage", it just wasn't for me. Still I admire the way he tries everything - from super ambient (Wai...

Re: Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe Infinity - Out November 16th

I like Jarre, but feel that time has left him behind. Went to two Paris concerts and Docklands but after Teo & Tea... I kinda stopped listening to new stuff. Will give this a good listen to though. He took some time away after losing the plot with T&T. Electronica 1 & 2 are well worth a listen thou...

Jean-Michel Jarre - Equinoxe Infinity - Out November 16th

The Godfather of Electronic music sequel to his classic 1978 album Equinoxe. After his rather excellent grammy award nominated Electronica album, and the rather so-so Oxygene 3 Although, I think some of the tracks don't really sound like anything on the original. Here is what has been released on Yo...

Re: Sub-Terrania (MD) / Emulators

It seems with a bit of research Dgen 1.70 lite plays this game. Can anyone confirm this?

Most Annoying Console to Set Up

I got out the Wii the other day but lost interest about half way threw set up.
Maybe it's my age, but it's such a arse on.
Anything worse?

Why has this thread gone dead?

Sub-Terrania (MD) / Emulators

Sub-Terrania on the MD is one of my all time favourite games, and IMO the best Thrust-type game ever made. It also has a great Jasper Kyd soundtrack. But I'm finding that that it's a pain to get to work probably on emulators for some reason. On PSP Picodrive for example the titles play but then the ...

Re: iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch game recommendations

I'm about to finally upgrade my iphone 4S.
A lot my games are older games, and I wondered if I got a larger screen iphone, would there be a way to go full screen with those games or would I be stuck with black borders at the side?
If black borders I may go for the iphone SE.
Thanks.

Selling up - Good time?

I'm moving house, and although they don't take up a lot of space, I'm thinking of selling my 21 UK Clamshell NGPC games. Most are brand new and there are a few rare(ish) ones in there like Cool Boarders, Dive Alert Becky, Last Blade etc. I also have a Megajet and loads of RG and Edge Mags (inc speci...

Cheers. And what about insurance? The books I have would hopefully sell for £2k or so.

Selling My Stuff - Advice Please

I'm downsizing and to be honest apart from a quick blast at a ios game, I don't really game much these days (Where did my youth go!?) Apart from this being a shameless plug to what I will be listing on eBay in the next few weeks, I need some advice on how to get the best price. I take it I need to o...

Re: One Issue Magazine - Did I dream it?

Thank you Knight_Beat. VGS: Videogames Shopper it was.
I can sleep again now.

My memory of it was slightly different to how it actually was, and
I'm sure I searched high and low for Issue 2 (maybe my local Smiths didn't stock it).

Re: The ridiculously cheap price of used games

Went to place in my town that was selling off PSP games. They all looked new. Sticker said 49p on them all.
Took them to the till, and was told it was buy one, get one half price. Result!
