Re: Blu Ray vs DVD

I still buy Blu-Ray and DVD. I use the BR release of Star Trek as a cut off point. Before, DVD, after, Blu-Ray. With some exceptions such as Forbidden Planet. DVDs are only a quid at my local Cash Converter. The picture quality of a Blu-Ray far surpasses a DVD but, I will buy an older film on DVD as...

Re: Lone Wolf Game Books.

See what happens when you post before scrolling. Just mentioned these in the Fighting Fantasy post. I did enjoy these much more than Fighting Fantasy. The combat, items, and levelling all seemed to work better. The plot lines were also more exciting for a 12 year old player.

Re: Fighting Fantasy

I played Warlock of Firetop Mountain. And, I beleive it was called Lone Wolf by another publisher. But, never played any others. I always expected a video game version. And am surprised that no one has plundered this IP goldmine. Vagrant Story is the closest thing to a VG take on this I believe.

Exactly, since Retro Gamer does not recognise the PS1 as retro (Are we there yet?), there's no way the PS2 is... :shock:

I like new games. I don't like new prices. Pre-owned for me.

Yes, BBC Drama (tm). Not what it was these days. All written by nepotic post-grads in touch with da peeple. It's the Wurther's Originals version of the 70's.

Seems to have poor reviews but i love scifi/alien films and im ok with a bit of mediocrity.
Hoping to see it this weekend. Either that or Lockout. Lockout, good script. Battleship, SPECIAL EFFECTS. So, I think it will be Battleship. I'll let you know if you can wait.

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Have just recently watched Limitless - an interesting premise, the whole smart drug thing that cropped up in the nineties appears to have died a death. And Legion - wafer thin plot, what,why,what happened,what for,what next? And more shell casings on the floor than Lord of War. As for Sucker Punch W...

Re: Game endings - the good, the bad, and the shocking

My fave endings are:-
Final Fantasy VII
Flashback
Gunstar Heroes
Omega Boost
Highway Encounter
Thunderforce IV

I remember being bitterly disappointed at the end of

Doom/Final Doom

All that and all you get is a static text screen.
